-> RTS Page for Gisèle Alain 5
Where's he aiming from...?
Watch your movements! [stop moving so carelessly]
We are not here to fight with you!
Could you please show yourself to us?
Listen to what
Sfx: Baki-, Dosa
Hey, are you al...
Captain, please listen to us,
for your sake as well.
I beg of you...
The city is in springtime, have the grass and trees grown thick?
[note: this is from a Japanese transliteration of the Chinese poem this title is based on]
What do you think?
It is a prime location, no?
It's right next to the residential district
and the streets that run along it are always packed.
Sfx: Tui- Tui-
The river is right next to it and there's a church as well.
We'll build a playground with a swing for the children,
and a water fountain as well.
The plans have been moving along with the engineers and...
Are you listening? Miss Alain!
... I lost sight of him.
A bird, perhaps? [was there a bird?]
There _was_ a bird
but there was also a disheveled looking boy in a tree.
Well, I did say I lost sight of him.
[Written]Sfx: Ha- [sigh]
That lad is the Captain.
The Captain rarely shows himself in front of other people.
If you approach carelessly you'll be attacked...
So that's what happened? [Lit: This?][the injury]
Is he a wild beast?
He is most likely around ten or twelve years old.
Some years ago he began living in a scrapped vessel that had been abandoned in that forest.
And now [the situation is that] no adults can do anything about it.
Why don't you just pick somewhere else?
We cannot do such a thing,
the location has already been decided!
How troublesome... adults are...
This isn't such a bad deal for him either.
If he is in the orphanage he won't have to worry about food or staying worm.
I did have one proposal in particular...
Miss Alain could go by herself to persuade the Captain.
Well, we have no ulterior motives
It seems he is especially on guard towards adults.
Perhaps the words of a young lady such as Miss Alain might... prove...
So you want a child to deal with a child.
[written] Oh no, now you've made her mad.
What a simple and cliche train of thought.
No, no, of course not, that is not what I mea...
It's not important. [whatever, never mind, who cares]
I shall give it a try.
Is that it over there?
What a beautiful forest.
Sfx: Kun [sniff]
Who are you?
What have you come here to do?
Sfx: Dokun Dokun [badump badump]
[written] Ha- [sigh of relief]
... it smells
I'm on... [This is...]
Sfx: Basa Basa
Don't touch that!!
I'm the one asking the questions here,
Did you make this all by yourself?
What's it to you if I did?
Who on Earth are you...!?
Me? Gisele, Jack-of-all-trades.
I was hired to persuade you. [the Captain]
But I'm quitting that.
is leagues more interesting than any park.
Giving this away to some adults
would be such a waste!
Of course I am!
Yes? Bierre [Bea-ru] translation company.
Is this the little lady?!
What is it? Someone's birthday again?
That's fine, I'll try asking.
But in exchange come help us with some work again.
Yes, sir, Mr. President!
If my memory serves me right... [Lit: if my memory is not mistaken]
wasn't your job to help turn this forest into a park...
I've changed my mind!
"Changed your mind" ...?
But what about the people in the cit-
Don't say it! That's just going to complicate things.
I used to go on dates all the time with my husband in this forest.
I'd hate to see it disappear. [It would be lonely if it disappeared]
I'd rather have a forest then a park full of screaming children. [it's better than a park only full of loud children]
I like playing in the forest.
Thanks so much, everyone!
If you guys have any other good ideas, please let me know!
What is the meaning of these posters?
I haven't a clue!
[written] They just sprang up one night throughout the city...
I wonder if a letter of protest,
or something like that, would be too formal? [lit: basic/standard]
That's a good idea, isn't it?
If we did it by telephone we'd be found out, but a letter would work.
Though we would want a large amount of them.
I'll ask the girls at the joint to help out.
And I'll try my old friends.
I'll ask my friends too.
Maybe if I used an alias...
Don't worry so much about it, Gisele. [You don't have to over do it]
[written] You won't be able to get your friends out at night!
Is this good, Giseley? [Gisele-chan]
Yup, it's perfect!
Are we being inspected by some charity groups or something, sir?
Not that I can recall.
Sfx: kari kari kari
Sfx: Uzu uzu
Sfx: kari kari
Sfx: Pata Pata
Oh, that's a good idea.
Why is this all happening...
And all that's left is...
If you want her returned unharmed
you'll put a stop to all of the construction plans right now!
Sir, what should we do?
For now, just go and call over her partner!
Sir, I called him but all he had to say was "None of my business." [lit: I don't know anything about it, I don't carea bout it]
SFx: Bata bata
Oh my, where is she from?
Is this what the posters were about?
He's so young, what are his parents doing?
Hurry up and save them!
Make sure the boy is cared for as well...
Sfx: Basha- [camera]
[written] Ha- [sigh]
Sfx: gashi gashi [scratch]
Have I been cursed?
When you've reached a decision ring the bell over there.
You have five days.
... Simon [Shimon]
Okay, the show is over everyone, nothing to see here! [Lit: This isn't a show]
Please return to your homes.
For the time being let's head back and go through everything.
It was perfect!! [lit: masterpiece]
That was the first time I've seen them actually worried.
No matter what I did to them they never reacted like that before.
You're a genius!
Was... [Lit: but]
to help you a little?
What are you saying!?
You were amaaaazing!
Come with me.
I've got something to show you! [There's something good]
They're so sweet!
I know, right!?
This is the first time
since I was separated from my parents that
I've eaten something with someone.
I was abandoned.
Many years ago.
They must've thought I'd die right away.
Now look at me.
that reminds me.
Gisele, you have a home, right?
I ran away and came here.
Of course we are!
Yeah, you're right-!!
Nothing can stop us. [Lit: We are invincible.]
tell me your name.
J... Just call me the Captain.
I want to call you by your name!
I just said you don't need to.
What's going on?
Get out of the way, Gisele!!
Sfx: Buzu Buzu Buzu
we can't stay.
We have to run!
Are you alright?
Do you have any injur...
are you okay?
I'd be able
to do something [about this]
I... [lit: if it were me]
I could do something [about this]...
This isn't something
for children to beat themselves up over. [Lit: to over do, etc]
When you become adults
a little more that you can do.
Got everything with you? [do you have anything you forgot]
... Well, then...
don't know your name. [haven't heard your name]
You aren't the Captain anymore.
tell me [lit: its troublesome]
So I can [lit: at a time]
say g... [lit: like this...]
It's Luca. [Ryuka]
Sfx: Ta ta ta ta ta
I'm going to grow up [be an adult] one day, so...
- Yeah, me too!
Even if we grow up to be adults,
we'll still always be friends!
He seems at home in the city as well.
... he does.
Excuse me, Mr. Monet. [Mone]
The master said to bring his newspaper...
The [news] publishers
are on a temporary holiday today.
Are we clear, Miss Marie Martin? [Mari- Marutan]
You understand what is good for you.
From today onward I will be away shortly.
I will be taking a trip to undergo treatment for a particular illness I have contracted.
you can take care of everything.
you burn the rest.
Shall I call the carri...
There is no need.
He's going to walk!?
Chapter Five: The End.
This is Luca. He'll be staying with us starting today.
please be nice to him.
Hi, nice to meetcha!
I'm Cheryl! [sharuru]
Where ya from?
You're so small!
Your hair is so long!
Sfx: Wara wara wara
Don't touch me!
[Written] Eeek [kyaa]
Sfx: [written] Ha- Fu- [pant/sigh]
Sfx: Goshi Goshi
Are your eyes itchy?
It's because of how long your bangs are.
I'm Remy. I'll cut your hair for you later.
