It seems like the Galaxy Express is going to land here!!
But this land is mine!! I won't let it do as it please!!

8th stop
The dark knight from Mephisto, the planet of darkness

sfx: Fwoooooooo
sfx: Fwoooooooo

What a tempest! You can only see dark clouds through the window.

It's black gas! It's cold and doesn't let light and reflects go through...


Haa haa haa

There is a little hole in the door of one wagon, please excuse us for the trouble...

It's always the same thing whenever the train arrives near the planet of the dark knight... I can hardly take a brake.
The planet of the dark knight?

This is our next stop. It's one of the rare private planets of space, in other words, it belongs to a single man.

Indeed, it seems like the dark knight own this planet's title of property...
That's why that, even if the train is making a stop on this planet hidden by thick clouds of black gas...

... it is forbidden to get off.
Because if you ever wander outside, the dark knight won't give you a break.

This planet was named after its owner, right?

The real name of this planet of darkness is Mephisto...
Far away from 1 pc* of the Earth, it's floating all alone in the space void...
*Note: The parsec is a unit of measure for astronomical distances (about 30 billions kilometers).

Without light, you feel like your eyes are always shut... It's scary...

The train is stopping.
sfx: Tchac
Finally, we've arrived!!

Waah! I can't see anything!!

The stop only lasts 10 minutes, you won't have time to get bored.
I'm gonna have a look in the dining car and buy something to eat.

You mustn't open the windows.

What a boring planet!!


Maetel! Someone is watching us...
Ah, she already left...

One more made its way through the door crack. I need to close it shut before getting invaded...


I'm gonna close it up properly!

sfx: crack


Oh my!

I won't let anyone who dares stepping on my lands live!!

The dark knight?![ndt: your worst nightmare =p]
Right on!! I am the dark knight, the one who gave his name to this planet!!

Shoot, I didn't bring my weapon with me!!

Go to hell!!
sfx: zyouuuu


Ah! Maetel!!

sfx: Schlaaaac


Hurry up and get back to the train!



You're gonna pay for this, dark knight!!

Who are you and where are you going?

My name is Tetsurou Hoshino!!!
I'm going to the planet who will get me an android body!!

Have you money?
I don't, but mechanization is free on this planet!!


sfx: Cling


Why have you stopped?!

Look at me carefully, Tetsurou!!
on boxes: Pineapple, Tuna, Sardine in oil.

I didn't have money either... I worked hard and I bought myself a bottom end body. And then I added a few mechanical pieces to it I stole here and there. Look at the result!!

I'm now ashamed by my own look...

In the end, I could buy this planet of darkness in some black market!!

Neither the main office of the galaxy trains, nor the government of the Earth have wanted to check this title of property...
... But even if it was on black market, I really paid the price of this planet!!

So it's mine and mine alone! I won't let anyone set a foot on it!!

And that's why you killed Maetel?!

You're all gonna die!!

Tetsurou... Tetsurou... Come quick... Where are you?
Come save me!

Maetel, an important mission awaits you.
You can't die till you've fulfilled it!

I will let you live until you succeed.
Don't ever forget it, Maetel!!

sfx: Fwoooooo
sfx: cling cling cling

sfx: Fyouuuuu

sfx: Fyouuuuuu

You're alive...?!

sfx: Booooooom

I stabbed you with my spear though...

Pff... Doesn't matter. I always knew it would end up this way...
I'm proud to have been killed by your hand!!

There are a lot of different robotized bodies. Look carefully at my corpse.

You must be really surprised!!

What you witness earlier was an illusion... A fake image caused by the black gas...

So it was the dark knight's doing?
Err... Yes... An image projector was hidden within his body...

Of course. No one could survive after being stabbed by a spear!

But if only I knew it was him...
I wouldn't have killed him...

He didn't want to be seen by others. He will sleep...
on this planet away from prying eyes.

It is 2pm, we will be leaving planet Mephisto.

It's not planet Mephisto!!
But the planet of the dark knight!!

It's his planet!!

It is 2pm, we will be leaving planet of the dark knight!
The Galaxy Express 999 is about to depart.

The planet of the dark knight is a lonely planet... on which a man was living alone, hurt in his heart and his body...
And this man fall asleep forever, on this planet where we cannot see anything...
