You're too smart, Kiyoshi. I can barely understand what you're saying.

Dad: Oh, Kiyoshi, you're back! I was just about to pour a Calpis.
Kurusu: Waa! Calpis!!
Mom: Hey!! Wash your hands first!!
Huh? Were you about to say something, Mom?
Mom: Ah, well.........
Dad: Here, I poured it. Let's make a toast!
Kurusu: Did something good happen?
Mom: Well, Kiyoshi, your father has become chief clerk.
Kiyoshi: Chief clerk?!! So you're a big-shot at the factory now, huh?
Dad: Well, I dunno about big-shot, but I'm doing all right.
You're smart Kiyoshi, so you've gotta become even more of a big-shot.
Kiyoshi: But, Dad, I.....
I want to become an animator!!
Mom: Oh, this boy, he's using more of those difficult words...
Kiyoshi: It's not a difficult word! It's a kind of motion picture.....
Dad: It sounds good.
You're great at drawing, Kiyoshi!!
There's nothing better than having a dream!!
Dad: You're okay, Kiyoshiiii?!!

Dad: It's okay if the house is gone.
As long as we have our lives, we'll manage somehow.

A machine drawing technical skill diploma......
Well done, Kiyoshi.
Kurusu: I thought I could draw plans for a secret weapon for the army.
Dad: What an honorable choice.
You've graduated top of your class from the Tokyo industrial arts school...... and I heard you had the best grades out of the history of anyone who graduated, right?
Kurusu: Y......Yes. But
all of my friends have been dispatched to the war, and I'm the only one on the mainland facing a desk......
Dad: That's okay.
Dad: Going to the battlefield isn't the one way to serve one's country.
Kurusu: Hold on, Mom!! Dad should definitely be fine at Tsukudajima!!
Kurusu: Dammit!! Ther've been over 100 air-raids, enough already!!
