Ok, caught up again. Next week's the last one in this group of 8. And it should be another big one. I really don't think this series is gonna last much longer, but I've been wrong about that before. I don't think more than 2 more 8-chapter arcs though. Almost every loose end is tied up now. I still wanna know who that one guy, Shirasu Jirou from chapter 9 was. And the dang karate-chop man.
Well, we'll see.
[Billy Bat 116 Translation by Kewl0210]
SFX: GACHAN UIIIIN...
SFX: GEHO GEHOGEHOH...
Kurusu: This thing is quite something...
To worry about me and wait up like that...
I was never treated so kindly.......
even on Earth.
Side: Since dust became the Earth and the Earth formed the moon, it's been 4.5 billion years.
Kurusu: Ku... Kuhah
SFX: GEEEEHO GEHO GEHOH... GEEEEH!!
Kurusu: Do you know how I was able to come to the moon so easily?
Somebody like me whose days are numbered wanting to go to the moon was a stroke of luck for the Soviet Union Army's space development division.
It's like a guinea pig willingly entering an experiment cage.
In Japan, we'd call that a "kamonegi".
I wonder what the Soviets would call that?
SFX: GEEEEHOH... GEHO GEHO EEEH...
T/N: "Kamonegi" is slang for a double stroke of luck. Literally it means "duck" "green onion".
SFX: GEEEHOH GEHO GEHOH...
I'm no duck nor am I a guinea pig.
I am a man that holds the fate of the world in his hands.
Title: Chapter 116
The Fate of the World
Kurusu: Is it much further...?
SFX: GACHAN UIIIIN
Disney: This crap...!!
I'll show them!!
Call Kevin Goodman here!!
I won't let him have his way with the Billy Bat Magazine I created any longer!!
Disney: If he won't come to me, I'll come to him!!
I'll teach him what happens when he draws a fake Billy without my permission!!
Audrey: What happens? Are you going to kill him, just like the urban legends say?
Audrey: Anyhow, you're really in no position to call other people fakes. Isn't that right, Daddy?
Disney: Audrey, be quiet.
Audrey: I won't be quiet.
Audrey: I've known ever since I was a kid.
About how you don't draw Billy Bat and how you didn't create him.
You're not even really Chuck Culkin.
Audrey: Who are you?
Disney: Shit up.
Audrey: Are you even really my father...?
Disney: Shut up!!
Disney: I'm going to stop Kevin Goodman from drawing!!
Chuck: You can't stop him now!!
Disney: Out of the way!!
Chuck: There are lines forming all across America to read the Billy Bat he's drawing!!
The Kevin Goodman Billy Bat has been accepted by the world.
He can no longer be stopped.
Audrey: Where are you going?!
Chuck: Go ahead and try to raid the editorial department. That's as good as admitting that you're a fake.
Though I actually wouldn't mind that one bit.
While I'm not sure how many there are, you're going to sneak off to one of your lover's places, aren't you?
You seduce any aspiring actress you find.
My Mama was one of them...
Audrey: You might have lots of children just like me for all I know.
But I'm the only one who'll inherit your estate.
After all, I've got all the dirt on you.
SFX: KAH KAH
SFX: KAH KAH
Woman: What's wrong?
This is the first time I've seen you at such a loss.
Woman: You have nothing to worry about. You're just working too hard.
Hey, hey, forget all that,
how about me being the heroin in your next picture?
I suppose having a bit more of a chest would help, huh?
Why don't you give me the money for another surgery?
Ah... That reminds me,
I saw the new Billy Bat.
Woman: That was good!!
I don't reach comics and all that much, but I could still tell.
Way better than anything before!
It really reminded me about how much talent you've got.
What was that for?!!
Let me know when you guys decide the schedule for the auditions!!
Disney: I have three choices...
I sell the whole company... I accept that kid as the new chief...............
Or I take the kid's life...
Someone: Are you okay?
Disney: It's so strange...
Disney: Meeting you here like this, at this place we used to go on so many dates...
Namoi: It sure is.
You used to say this a lot as we gazed at this view...
"Someday soon, you'll be among those glistening stars..."
Naomi: But I never gained the right to be among those stars.
Naomi: I gained something more important.
Disney: What's his name?
Disney: It's quite something...
So your life has only just begun...
Yes, that's it, smile.
It looks like my life is already over...
Sorry to say this about someone like you that's only just been born...
but I've been wishing all of mankind could end along with me.
...Isn't that right, Fuehrer?
[Back to Kurusu's moon adventure.]
Kurusu: When I die............
I wish it would be the end of this world, too...
SFX: UIIIIN GACHA
SFX: GACHA UIIIIIN
Kurusu: Are you leaving me behind...?
SFX: GACHA UIIIIN
Kurusu: So I've finally been abandoned by you, too...?
SFX: GACHA PIIII'
[There he is.]
Hurry up and say yer wish.
Kevin: Oh no!!
At this rate, the world's going to end...!!
Side: He made it. Just before the flame of that life goes out, will Billy be hearing his wish?! Next chapter, the series climax!! [Series as in this series of 8 chapters, guys.]
Bottom: "Billy Bat" Chapter 116 / End
