Well, we're half way through now and there still aren't any scanlations. I'm seriously annoyed at this point. I'm trying to contact those guys and get some idea of what's going on.
[Billy Bat 121 Translation by Kewl0210]
Someone: Oh noooooo!!
The "Towers of Prosperity" are falliiiing!!
Crush the dictator!!
That island is our island!!
That island belongs to us!!
Side: Shrieks and anger. Is this the end of the world or just one page of history? This is Kevin's new piece...... or is it a prediction?
Dog: War will no longer occur.
If war were to occur...
it would be none other than an economic war...!!
People: We'll take back our land!!
Crush him! Crush him!!
The people assembled on the Internet
will topple the dictatorship!!
Title: Chapter 121 Prediction of Ruin (4/8)
Guy: Hey, sir?
Do you think this'll win?
Guy: It's a lottery ticket.
If you win with the carry-over, you get 800 million right now!!
Take a look at these numbers.
I read about you in a magazine. That's you, right?
Kevin: If you don't keep your eyes on the road while you're driving
you're gonna die before you win that lottery.
SFX: PAH PAAAH KYAKYAH
Guy: Right, gotcha!!
Yeah, I should expect nothing less. You know what'll happen before it happens, after all.
I thought you looked like the guy in the lottery. You're headed ta Madeline Park, right?
That's what clinched it for me. That's where the Golden Cola President's estate is.
Guy: Ya goin' ta check on yer Dad's business er somethin'?
KEvin: It's got nothing to do with them.
Guy: Man, the heir to the Golden Cola company, the top company in its industry,
is also a prophet? The world just ain't fair.
Kevin: Stop here.
Kevin: We're almost at Madeline Park.
Kevin: I haven't been here in a while, so I'm gonna walk.
Kevin: I used to play around here a lot when I was a kid.
Kevin: There's a swamp past that thicket.
When I was a kid, I got stuck in it and almost died.
A real prophet should really be able to predict that much...
Kevin: It's unlocked......?
I almost hit my own son with a bat.
You snuck in without making a sound.
Kevin: The front door was unlocked. No matter how you put it, that's pretty careless.
Diane: You came in right when I was going into the garden to gather some mint.
I really didn't like this as a kid, didn't I......?
Diane: So you're finally at the age where you know how good mint tea is?
Kevin: Oh, apple pie!
Diane: Looks like your reaction to apple pie is just the same as from when you were a kid.
Kevin: Where's Dad?
Diane: In Japan for a business trip.
Kevin: Japan, huh......? I'd like to go there.
Diane: I don't know, but he said he wanted to take a look at a water source.
He said that water sources are going to be vital to beverage makers.
Kevin: Speaking of which, where're the maids?
DIane: You dad's not here, to they're taking off.
Kevin: What about the security people?
Diane: Same. Taking off.
Kevin: C'mon now, that's careless.
Diane: Ah...... Now that you mention it..............
Diane: There's been a strange car parked nearby the house a lot recently.
Kevin: Huh? What'd you say?
That really sounds dangerous, don't you think?
Diane: And that's why I talked to them.
You approached that car and spoke to them?
Diane: Yes. But of course I was carrying a bat like you saw just now.
SFX: KON KON
Diane: The man in the car had a dumbfounded look on his face.
And I said this...
Diane: Next time, I'm calling the police. But for today, please have a Golden Cola and get going.
Kevin: ......And, what happened?
Diane: He drank it and left.
Kevin: HAAAAAH...... I know that you were called a woman warrior a long time ago.....
You're really as reckless as ever.
Diane: So what about you? It's been years since you've come by. What brought this on?
Sorry for not calling in so long......
Diane: Don't worry. No news is good news, they say.
Diane: I've been enjoying every issue of Billy Bat.
Kevin: Ah...... So you've been reading it? Thanks.
Diane: Of course.
Are you mad?
Diane: About what?
Kevin: I mean, I quit university without even asking you............
Diane: I guess business administation......... isn't really what you're suited to.
Actually, even your dad never really wanted you to inherit Golden Cola.
Kevin: Ah...... is that right?
Diane: Your dad actually wanted to go to Europe and become a cartoonist.
Diane: He was such a big, big fan of Billy Bat.
He was actually a little too into it.
So he was actually really happy when you started drawing Billy Bat.
He said he was proud of you.
been thinking of quitting......
Kevin: Both Billy Bat......
and drawing comics......
I'm now drawing comics in order to convey these prophecies.........
I just want to draw an entertaining comic.
Diane: Well, that should be all right.
Though your dad may be a bit sad to hear it.
What are you going to do when you quit?
Kevin: I'm not really sure.....
I think I'd like to see the world.
There are some people that say that's the hobby of a rich heir, but that's not right.
I'll travel the world with the money I earned drawing Billy Bat......
I haven't thought of what I'm gonna do afterwards......
Diane: Not knowing what to do is what life is.
Diane: We don't know what's coming
and that's what makes it interesting.
Would you like another cup of mint tea?
Kevin: AH...... Sure......
Kevin: Man, it's been a long time since I've been in this room.
Diane: That's got all of the drawings you did as a child in it.
Ah...... that's probably a call from your dad.
Are you going to tell him yourself that you're quitting?
What're ya doin', actin' all grown up and decidin' on your own to drop out?
Billy: We used to talk just us two in this room all the time back in the old days, right?
Ya never went off ta play on yer own.
Billy: First, humanity's already ended.
Billy: The final episode's already happened.
When that man went to the moon.
Because you decided on your own to change that,
everything's all jumbled up.
Billy: There's 10 more years.
In 10 years, the time of ruin will come.
And I don't know what to do anymore.
Side: Kevin has rewritten history. So now, chaos and despair for humanity that even Billy Bat cannot predict is beginning......?!
