In this world, there are holes in which you can see space. Falling in them will make you travel through universe. And in these strange worlds that are exceeding human understanding, men are surviving by adapting their bodies and their minds to environment. It's the only way you can survive in space...
The Giant Cows in Space Pastures
This planet looks like a big pumpkin that has been pierced through!!
That's a weird planet without up and down. [ndt: txt is upside down]
The space pastures of the hollow planet Valera are a really strange place.
The holes scattered on the external surface of the planet allow to get in and out...
Once inside of the planet, the gravitational attraction is pushing you toward the outside for some reason.
Let's imagine you're standing on top of the internal surface of a giant ball.
The skyline would be spreading upward. I've read something about it in a sci-fi short story... and you can see stars through these openings.
Aren't you hot, Tetsurou?!
I can't stand it anymore!
Why are you... wearing a swimsuit?
I'm going to swim.
I'm going to fly in the sky.
Do you want to try?
I feel like I'm going to be really ridiculous.
Ok! Let's go!
Oh my! Oh my!
You can even go to the antipodes through the center of the planet.
But beware of the cows and pigs!
Are they cows?!
Yes, we're in the middle of a pasture... This is where animals are bred for their meat.
Because of this way of breeding, their flesh is spreading uniformly all around the animal. Thus their shape.
But these are pigs!!!
I can recognize them thanks to their cries.
Here's a hen.
Who are you?
Don't move. I'm a cowboy.
I'm not going to kill you, I just want your ticket for the Galaxy Express!!
Take that!! [outside bubble]
If I'm falling in a hole, I'm going to get lost in space...!!
Draw your weapon, Tetsurou!!!
They won't come after us here.
Even if they attacked us, they're not bad people. Their personality is just kind of rude.
This planet is thriving thanks to the export of cows and pigs that are bred here.
But they must dream of leaving that place too apparently, or they wouldn't have tried to steal my ticket.
When you're staying here for too long, your body becomes all round...
Wherever you are in space, men and animals have to adapt to their environment. Here, they needs to change shapes.
Yet, I would've really wanted to leave here...
Despite that, they also want to leave that place to get a mechanized body...
You told me that this planet was really thriving, didn't you?
Yet, they're still not enough rich to get on the Galaxy Express...
Then, these tickets must be really expensive!!
Then why did you give me such a valuable item?
You'll understand soon enough...
For now, don't ask me for more...
Tetsurou doesn't know the goal Maetel is pursuing... The only thing he's sure of right now is that by going to the planet where robotized bodies are free, he's making the inhabitants of heaven jealous... Moreover, he reads some deep sadness on Maetel's face...
