[Doubutsu no Kuni 26 Translation by Kewl0210]
Back Cover:
When seeing "Moko", the child that Monoko gives birth to, Tarouza realizes that he should protect "this happiness" and decides not to go to the Tower of Babel.
Tarouza was enjoying a peaceful day, but that was only brief. A tragedy befell Monoko as she tried to protect a wounded Tarouza from a wolf...
Trembling in anger over this world of "The weak eaten by the strong", Tarouza finally heads to the Tower of Babel!!

Author Flap:
The first chapter of this 8th volume (Word.26) is the most difficult story of manga I've ever drawn (Including Konjiki no Gash!!).

Board: Character Introductions
Top Right: Tarouza
A human child that possesses a "cry that can be used to communicate with any animal". Monoko is his mother that raised him since he was a baby. He lives together with plant-eating animals of different species. He wishes to someday be able to be friends with meat-eating animals.
Right Side: Tarouza's true mother that abandoned him?
Middle Right: Monoko
A female tanuki and Tarouza's mother. Her parents were eaten by lynxes and she was alone when she picked up Tarouza and decided to become his mother.
Moko: Monoko's daughter. The father is a secret!
Bottom Right: Kurokagi
A lynx that questions this world of the strong preying on the weak. Ever since his life was saved by Tarouza, he has vowed to fight for Tarouza's sake. Even now, he is a valuable fighting force for Tarouza's pack.
Bottom Center: Jeek
A wolf child. Ever since he lost his family in a bear attack, he has lived in the tanuki village. Now he is family to Tarouza and Monoko.
Insert: Monoko has given birth to a healthy baby!! Tarouza is a big brother!

Page 3:
Top: Currently there are only 5 "humans" on the planet including Tarouza!!
For some reason, these five all have a "cry that can talk with all animals"----
Top Left: Giller
He seems to be at the "Tower of Babel" but his identity is still unknown... He led a group of odd creatures called "Chimeras" in an attack on Gene Grail and stole "Kuou's Notebook" from Riemu.
Middle Left: Chimera
Mysterious creatures led by Giller.
Top Right: Jyu
A boy that wanders "Doubutsu no Kuni" together with a meat-eating beast called Olivia. He thinks that stealing each others lives is the proper form for animals, so he is against Tarouza's ideal of "everyone getting along".
Below Jyu: Capri
A human girl that was raised among a pack of lions. A carnivorous girl that think of plant-eating animals as "prey". But when she met Tarouza and his comrades, she became their friend. Even though they're plant-eating animals, she won't eat them because they're friends!
Below Gorion: Riemu
A girl raised by gorillas. She used to live in the paradise Gene Grail before it was attacked by Giller and her family of gorillas was killed. Since then she has lived in Tarouza's village. The owner of the notebook left behind by Kuou.
Belo Riemu: Kuou
A human which lived before Tarouza and the others. He left behind a notebook in which he wrote the "way to make all animals live in harmony" that he completed. For some reason, the names of the five remaining humans names were written in it and labeled as "Miracle Children"...
Bottom Left Box: Up until last time..
"Kuou's Notebook" was stolen from Riemu by Giller, but she actually had one more notebook of Kuou's which she had hidden! In it was a "method to make all animals live in harmony" that was addressed to Tarouza, Riemu, Capri, Jyu, and Giller. But in the notebook that Giller took was information on biotechnology that humans should not use which made Riemu tremble. She also said that one of the animals created through Kuou's research is those Chimeras... Just what kind of world did Kuou wish for----

Monoko: Oh, you made it all clean!
Moko: Mommy!!

Page 10:

SFX: PACHI PACHI PACHI PACHI
Guys: Yuuum!
So good!
Tarou: Those blissful days went on and on.
Someone: Okay, Taro-chan. We're all ready to go-----!!
Narration: And today...to go

Page 13:
Narration: In order to say "thanks" to Mommy
Tarou: Okay, how about we get going?
Narration: Mommy, Moko and I are going on a trip.
Moko: A trip! A trip! [Heats after both sentences.]
Monoko: Moko sure is happy. Thanks, Taro-chan.
Tarou: Mm.
We won't be going outside our territory, but there's a really great place we can go.
Narration: The one who inspired us to take this trip was Hector.
Hector: Ooh...... It's been a while, Tarouza.
Hm...
I see. Kuou's notebook... So you've learned Kuou's will, have you...?
Do you intend to carry on that will, Tarouza?

Page 14:
Hector: That rash idea...
Tarou: So you know about the Tower of Babel, too, huh, Hector?
Hector: Mm. I'm against the idea of having all animals' cries communicate, so...
So when you felt so strongly about ridding this world of the concept of strong preying on the weak, I couldn't tell you.
So, Tarouza...... what is your answer?
Tarou: I've... thought it over and
I'm not going to the Tower of Babel.
Hector: Mm.
That's the right answer.
Tarou: But......
There's one thing I'm hung up on......

Page 15:
Even now, I feel like "I can't leave things as they are"......
I have some uneasiness like that in my chest.
SFX: DOKI DOKI DOKI DOKI DOKI
Tarou: Like I... forgot "something"...
Hector: Hm...
SFX: DOOOOO
Tarou: Did Kuou say anything about why he wanted
to get rid of the concept of the strong praying on the weak?
Was it really just because he wanted to make animals get along?!
Hector: Hm...... I never heard a deep reason relating to that, but...
Back then I gave Kuou a warning.
SFX: ZABAAAAA

Page 16:
Hector: That allowing all animals' cries to get across
would destroy the Animal Country that's existed up to now......
It may even turn it into a hell-like world.
And as the one who destroyed this world, he might be called a "devil" by many animals.
SFX: DOOOOOO
Tarou: Hell... what's that?
Hector: A world full of suffering.
SFX: ZAAAAA
Tarou: And what's... a devil?
Hector: A very bad person who destroys the world.

Page 17:
Tarou: Really...?
I guess so...
Hector: Tarouza... if you are feeling uneasy
then try doing something to show devotion and gratitude to the animals that raised you.
You have animals that raised you, yes?
Tarou: Yeah. I have a mom.
Hector: Then if you just live in a way to pay back that mother for what she's done for you,
your excess anxiety will disappear.
Tarou: And it would make Mommy happy, too, I guess.
Hector: Yes.
Tarou: Thank you, Hector.
I think I'll do that.

Page 18:
Tarou: Here. I made these out of seashells I found at a place called the ocean.
Aren't they pretty?
Moko: UWAA!! Is this me?
Monoko: They sure are pretty! [Heart]
Tarou: You hang them around your neck.
I thought they would be a kind of symbol that we're family.
Monoko: UWAA!! Thank you, Taro-chan!
I'm so happy-be!
Tarou: I'm glad you like it.

Page 19:
Tarou: Mommy......
Why did you become my Mommy?
I'm..... a human. Not a Tanuki...
Monoko: Hm? Why all of a sudden......?
SFX: MORI MORI
Tarou: Um... Well... it's just...
I wanted to thank you for being my mom......

Page 20:
Monoko: What is all this, so suddenly?
You don't need to thank me-be. You're making me blush-be.
Anyhow, do you not remember-be?
When I picked you up...
Tarou: Huh?
No...
Monoko: Oh... I see......
When I first found you, Taro-chan, you were in such a daza that you wouldn't even drink milk......
Then, let me tell you about it-be.
Taro-chan......
Moko: Taro-chaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan!!!
Tarou: Hm? Moko?
Moko: Taro-chan, c'meeeeere!! Mommy, you stay theeeere!!
Tarou: Hm. I'll be back in a bit.
Monoko: Okay. We'll talk when you get back.

Page 21:
SFX: TATATATATA...
Monoko: That Tato-chan......
Tarou: What's wroooooong, Mokooooo!
Moko: Taro-chan!!
Tarou: Ah. Why are you up on such a dangerous place......?
Moko: I-I...

Page 22:
Moko: I wanted to make Mommy smile, too!!!
SFX: BAH
Tarou: You picked that flower
to make Mommy happy, too?
Moko: Mm.
Tarou: Okay. Just don't move.
All right! Stretch out your hand...
There...
SFX: BOGOH

Why, Mo......

Page 24:
Monoko: Aah!!
What did you do, Moko?!
How did Taro-chan get hurt like this-be?!
Moko: UEEEN UEEEN UEEEN!
Monoko: First we have to stop the bleeding...
I'm pretty sure..... you're not supposed to move someone when their head gets hurt...
I should call Riemu for this.
Moko, I'll be right back, so stay right here.
Don't move! You'll just get lost!
Moko: Okay!
SFX: TATATATATA...
SFX: ZAH

Page 25:
SFX: KUN (Sniff)
Jeek: Huh...?
I thought so... This smell...
The lions standing guard didn't notice?
It's already come into the territory.
This scent is the same as mine......

Page 26-27:
[Say what you want about the character, that's a pretty damn cool design.]
SFX: HAH HAH

Page 28:
Monoko: That's not a wolf from our village.
How did it get in here?
SFX: KUN KUN KUN KUN (Sniffing)
SFX: ZAH
Monoko: It smelled something and went the other way.
I wonder what it was......?
The smell of blood?!!

Page 29:
Monoko: That's right... Those guys
go in the direction they smell blood because injured animals are easier to catch......
SFX: SUN SUN SUN SUN SUN
Monoko: Taro-chan!!!
SFX: TAH TAH TAH
SFX: TAH TAH TAH
SFX: TAH TAH TAH
SFX: ZAN

Page 30:
SFX: GATA GATA GATA GATA GATA GATA
Monoko: Hey, you!! If you're hungry, eat these!!!
Here, go ahead!!
They're super tasty!!
SFX: BORIN

Page 31:
Monoko: So just eat these!!
SFX: GORORON
SFX: KUN KUN KUN
Monoko: !!
SFX: PUIH
Monoko: Why won't you eat it?! Can't you hear what I'm......
!!
That's right-be.
That's a wolf. A tanuki's cry wouldn't get across to it......
What do I do-be?! He's getting close to Taro-chan.....
Unless I do something...
SFX: GATA GATA GATA GATA GATA

Page 32:
Monoko: Unless I do something......
SFX: AAAA
SFX: GATA GATA GATA GATA GATA GATA (Trembling)
SFX: KATA
Monoko: That's right.
That's it, isn't it.....
Because Taro-chan made the fields...... got us so many comrades...
and changed so much, I forgot, but...

Page 33:
SFX: ZA...
SFX: RIIII
Monoko: This world
was originally this kind of world......
SFX: BOTATA... TATA...
SFX: ZAH
Monoko: Wolf,
the blood you're smelling is over here.
There's nothing over there.

Page 34:
Monoko: I won't allow you.......
to go pasthere......

Page 35:
Something: GYAOoOOOOOOOOOOOH!!!
Momorous: An outside animal is in the territory!!
Where's that scream coming from?!!

Page 36:
Tarou: Mommy......
Why did you become my Mommy?
I'm..... a human. Not a Tanuki...
Monoko: Well,
Taro-chan...
it's because you were cute...

Page 37:
Monoko: Because you were small
and you smiled so cheerfully.
Just looking at that made me happy......
SFX: BAH
SFX: ZAZAZAZAZA
Monoko: GYAUUUUUUUUU!!!
SFX: BAH
Monoko: Back then, I was all alone......
And crushingly lonely...

Page 38:
Monoko: And I thought that if I was with this child
I could be happy in this world.
When you were at the verge of death, Taro-chan...
I was in much more pain than I was than when I was hungry.
This child still hasn't eaten any delicious things.
He still hasn't been coddled by a mommy and daddy.
He hasn't fallen in love with a girl he loves.
He was only just born
so he'll die without doing a single fun thing.

Page 39:
Monoko: I couldn't let such a sad thing happen...
Even if I'm eaten,
I'm going to protect you!!!
I understand the feelings of my mommy and daddy that got eaten protecting me...
You might not understand yet, Taro-chan...
but... I think I really do...
So I...
am going to protect you.
SFX :DOH DODODOH

Page 40:
Monoko: If it will let you live,
I'm not afraid of a thing like dying...
There's just one frustrating thing left......
I wanted to live together much, much more
with Taro-chan and Moko.

Page 41:
Monoko: I guess living your life to a natural end with your children
isn't something you can hope for in this world?
SFX: GUOH
Monoko: No...... It's not that you can't hope for it.......
I think it really is true that......

Page 42-43:
Monoko: the world is
what's wrong!!!
SFX: DAN

Page 44-45:
[Sad.]

Page 46:
SFX: CHICHICHI CHICHI...
SFX: CHICHICHI CHICHI
Kurokagi: I'm sorry, Tarouza...
This is all that was left...

Page 47:
Tarou: That can't be right...
It can't be...
Mommy couldn't have...
been eaten...
That can't..
.!!
SFX: GASAH

Page 48:
Moko: You're awake, Taro-chan...?
Tarouza: Moko...
Moko: C'mere, c'mere.
I made a secret base.
Look.
This is Moko's seat.
And this is Taro-chan's seat.
And this is Mommy's seat.
It's all clean.
So now Mommy will forgive Moko for getting Taro-chan hurt, right?

Page 49:
Moko: When is
Mommy coming back?
Tarouza: .............

Page 50:
Tarou: Uh.. Uuu... Uh
UOOOOOOH!!!
Mommy is......
UWAaAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Mommy's dead!!!

Page 51:
Tarou: WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
I was wrong......
I didn't know
what it really felt like for your family to be eaten......
This world...
allows things like this to happen like it's perfectly natural......
Hector: This world may change into a hell-like world.
Tarou: But it's hell enough as it is right now.
Hector: You may be called a devil.
Tarou: Yeah...... I don't mind.

Page 52:
Tarou: If I can change this world,
I'll gladly become a devil!!!

Page 53:
Tarou: I'm going!
SFX: GAH
Tarou: To the Tower of Babel!!!
