P1

Page 45: Sickness and Ambition

Insert: Their weekly series is in serious trouble!!

Mom: I don't exactly understand what it means to have too much GOT and GPT in the bloodstream… / But you’re saying that his liver is weakened and on top of that, it has become infected so you need to extract part of it?

Doctor: That is correct.

--

Saiko: Shujin…

Takagi: Saiko…

--

Saiko: Bring me the manuscripts.

--

Shujin: I have to get surgery. / It’ll take at least 3 months for me to recover and leave the hospital.

Takagi: Yeah, I heard.

Saiko: That means I have to do my work here.

P2

Saiko: The opportunity to do the opening color pages is major. / I’ll do it here.

--

Saiko: Alright, I’ll go get ‘em!

--

Miura: I know how you feel, but...

Takagi: But…

--

Miura: Doesn't he have to rest, doctor?

Doctor: Of course. / Your main focus should be on getting adequate rest and regaining your strength. You’re suffering from mild nutritional deficiency.

P3

Saiko: I’m going home to work.

Doctor: What are you doing!? You must rest!

--

Saiko: People don't die that easily.

--

Doctor: Even if you don’t die right away, if you continue to keep this up, your condition will only get worse. / Please get back into bed!

--

Doctor: Listen to me. If you don’t let us treat you, your condition will worsen to the point that it'll be too late to help you. It’s not a condition you can recover from over time. // I have an obligation to treat you so please listen to me.

--

Saiko: Then let me draw here. / We have a weekly series…

P4

Saiko: You can’t take a break when you’re doing a weekly series!!

--

Hattori: Mashiro-kun, just having that attitude towards your series is good enough.

Miura: Yeah, I wish Hiramaru-sensei could have heard that.

--

Hattori: But you’re sick so you have to get better. It won’t be a failure or embarrassment, // so take a break.

--

Saiko: I don’t want to go on hiatus! We're finally gaining some popularity… If we take a break now, we’ll never make it…! / You’ve been in this industry for a while so you should know that it’s different for us to take a break than for a popular veteran mangaka to take a break!

--

Miura: Is it true that you only have to ink-in 2 more pages to finish up chapter 18?

Saiko: I think that’s about right.

P5

Miura: Let’s have the assistants finish up chapter 18… We can discuss what we’ll do about the next chapters after giving it careful consideration, okay?

Saiko: No… I want to ink-in the characters… I’m a pro…

Miura: How long will it take to do that?

--

Saiko: 3 or 4 hours for chapter 18… / But I’ll have to do the 4 opening color pages for chapter 19 and I want to take at least a day to do that…

--

Miura: How does that sound, doctor? A day… Or even just 4 hours in order to…

Hattori: Miura…

Mom: Please stop!

--

Mom: What are you thinking? Are you trying to kill my son!? // My son is not a manga-drawing robot!!

Miura: I’m sorry. I got ahead of myself…

P6

Doctor: It will be okay. / As long as he’s under my care, I’ll make sure he gets adequate rest.

Mom: Thank you.

--

Doctor: Visiting hours are until 7:00pm and we should move Moritaka-kun to his own room now. // There’s nothing to worry about if he’s resting. // It’s your priority to get better.

Saiko: Okay…

P7

Miura: It’s Miura. Mashiro-kun will remain in the hospital for a while.

Ogawa: The hospital? // Surgery?

--

Miura: Finish up the first 16 pages of chapter 18 that have been inked-in. // We’re going back to the office to discuss our next steps with the superiors. I’ll follow up with you tomorrow at the latest.

--

Miura: We have to go on hiatus, don’t we?

Hattori: It’s inevitable.

--

Takagi: Shit! Why did this happen to Saiko?

P8

Phone: Public phone

--

Saiko: Shujin, it’s me.

Takagi: Are you well enough to be up and on the phone?

--

Saiko: They at least let me go to the bathroom.

--

Saiko: Bring me the manuscripts. You’re the only one I can ask. We’re professionals; we can’t let our series go…

--

Takagi: Saiko…

--

Takagi: But can you really do your work there?

Saiko: There’s only an old man in my room and as long as I keep it hidden from the nurses and doctors, it should be fine. Can you also bring me a flashlight so I can work even after the lights go out at 9:00pm? I’ll do it Nakai-san style and I actually have more time than we did when we were going to school.

P9

Takagi: Saiko… I'm going to wait until you get better so you have to get better.

Saiko: What the hell are you saying!? We can’t stop now! If we take a break for 3 or 4 months, our current fans will lose interest in us!

--

Takagi: But…

Saiko: I won’t die or anything! And I’ll get the surgery done. The only day I won’t be able to draw is on the day of my surgery, but that’s it!

--

Saiko: We got a chance at doing the opening color pages! It’s our chance to beat Eiji! What about our promise to show gratitude to Hattori-san!? “TRAP” is just beginning!!

Takagi: Saiko… If you get too excited, you’ll…

--

Takagi: Fine… I’ll bring it to you tomorrow…

Saiko: Great! Visiting hours start at 3:00pm. 3:00pm okay?

--

<beep>

--

<beep / beep>

--

Takagi: Miyoshi, where are you?

Miyoshi: Where am I?! I came to our work place to find that you’re not here, everyone’s depressed about something, and your cell phone was off! You’re cheating on me, aren’t you!?

Takagi: Can you go out?

Miyoshi: Where to?

Takagi: Uhhhmm, Momiji Park.

Miyoshi: Okay… [click]

P10

Chief Assistant: I think we need to rethink the idea of allowing high school students to have their own series…

--

Chief editor: Mashiro-kun said that he doesn’t want to have his assistants ink-in the characters?

Miura: Yes.

Chief: We’ll publish the 16 pages that are complete, designate 2 pages for project planning and use 1 page to notify our readers about the series’ hiatus.

Miura: Okay… // So we do have to go on hiatus… I guess it’s inevitable…

--

Chief: And based on what you’ve told me, Mashiro-kun will most likely try to continue working while he’s in the hospital.

Miura: Yes… He’s adamant about not going on hiatus...

Chief: You have to go check on him as much as possible to monitor him and his condition. His health and well-being are your top priority. / Follow the doctor’s orders instead of listening to Mashiro-kun.

Miura: Yes, sir.

P11

Miyoshi: The surgery has a 100% success rate, right!?

Takagi: Yeah, it’s not risky surgery or anything… // But his surgery is 2 weeks from the 10th and he has to stay admitted for at least 3 months…

--

Takagi: We’ll probably go on hiatus…

Miyoshi: That’s inevitable!

--

Takagi: I know. I know but Saiko keeps asking me to bring him the manuscripts so he can work!

Miyoshi: You can't…. There’s no way…

--

Takagi: But, I felt like I had to tell him I would because I know how he feels…

Miyoshi: Takagi…

Takagi: Hm?

P12

Miyoshi: Are you an idiot!?

--

Miyoshi: If you’re really his friend, you have to stop him! You’re so lame!

Takagi: Yeah, I am lame… // But Saiko and I are beyond friends now… // We’re seriously 2 halves of a whole… I don't want to go on hiatus and if I were in his shoes, I'd want to keep going even if it killed me… We both know how important it is to keep going at this stage…

--

Takagi: Why did he get sick? I wish I had been the one to get sick… You can draw names in a notebook in the hospital…

--

Takagi: I don't know what to tell Azuki…

Miyoshi: You shouldn’t tell her anything…

P13

Takagi: But she reads JUMP every week so she’s going to notice that we’re on hiatus… We could lie to her for about 2 weeks, but we wouldn't be able to convince her of anything if we’re not in there for over 3 months…

Miyoshi: Then you should at least wait and tell her after he's had the surgery...

--

Takagi: What if you were in her shoes? Wouldn't you be upset if your friends didn't tell you that your boyfriend had surgery until after it was over?

--

Takagi: Plus, she’s the only one we can ask.

Miyoshi: Ask?

--

Takagi: Saiko will only listen to her about getting rest and not doing work in the hospital. // Even though there is the possibility that maybe even Azuki can’t convince him otherwise…

--

Miyoshi: But even before that, Miho might break down when she learns about the surgery. She’s that kind of girl…

Takagi: No… Azuki is strong… No one can stay calm knowing their partner is getting surgery… // But we have to tell her because she is Saiko’s girlfriend.

Miyoshi: Yeah… Okay…

P14

Azuki: Takagi-kun…

--

Azuki: Good evening.

Takagi: Good evening…

--

Takagi: Listen to me very carefully… // You don’t have to worry too much about it, but Saiko isn't doing too well…

--

Azuki: Hospital… Surgery…

Azuki’s Mom: Miho! Dinner’s ready!

P15

Azuki: Mom… // Mashiro-kun is…

--

Azuki: Mashiro-kun is in the hospital… He has to get surgery done to remove a part of his liver…

P16

Azuki: I want to go stop him from drawing manga… / Takagi-kun said I’m the only one that can stop him.

Mom: Stop him?

--

Azuki: Mashiro-kun is supposed to be resting, but he’s claiming that he’ll do his work at the hospital.

Mom: I see… He’s the boy that you care about… And he’s hardworking…

--

AzukI: Yeah…

Mom: Miho…

--

Mom: Mina, can you go to your room for a little while?

Mina: But I feel bad for oneechan…

--

Mina: It’ll be okay, oneechan! The doctors in Japan are very good.

Mom: Yes, Mina’s right.

--

Mom: You can take the day off from school tomorrow and go see him. You have to be firm yet have a smile on your face, okay?

Azuki: Okay.

P17

The next day…

--

201
Kinoshita Jyuuichi*
*I’m actually not sure how to read his name…
Mashiro Moritaka

--

Katou: It is natural for an assistant to take care of the sensei they work for. / Work starts at 4:00 today, so until then I’ll…

Saiko: But… I don't really need anything taken care of and my parents will come in soon…

Katou: I met your mother yesterday.

Saiko: Yeah, but…

--

Saiko: Where’s Shujin… He’s supposed to bring me the manuscripts at 3:00pm…

--

Azuki: Mashiro-kun…

Saiko: What!?

P18

Azuki: Mashiro-kun, it’s Azuki.
--

Saiko: Azuki!? Why!? // I bet Miyoshi said something unnecessary again…

Katou: His girlfriend…

--

Katou: Sorry, I’ll get out of the way.

Saiko: Yes, please take care of the WORK for me.

Katou: You don’t need to stress that our relationship is work-related…

--

Katou: Wow! She’s like a doll… I could never win…

--

Katou: And she bowed first… She’s confident about her position…

--

Azuki: Do you think it's okay for me to come in, Mashiro-kun?

P19

Saiko: What are you doing here? / I thought we weren’t going to see each other until our dreams came true…

Azuki: You tried to come to my house the other day too…

Saiko: That was an emergency situation…

--

Saiko: It would be weird to meet now, especially since we’re definitely moving toward achieving our goals… // We’re almost there… If we can keep the series going without taking a break, we can definitely make it…

--

Azuki: Without taking a break…

Mom: Firm yet have a smile on your face..

--

Azuki: Okay, it’s a bit embarrassing, but I’ll speak loud enough so you can hear me.

--

Azuki: Speaking to you is okay, right? You won’t tell me to go home, after I’ve come all this way, will you?

Saiko: I guess…

--

Takagi: You’re the only one that can stop Saiko! So please!

Azuki: Mashiro-kun…

Saiko: Yes…?

Insert: Will Azuki be able to convince Saiko!?
