Guy: How the hell long have you been riding, you shitty bastard?!!
Guy 2: HIIH!

Hobos: Is he dead?
Yep. Dead as a doornail.
Well, let's bury him over yonder.
Geez, that bastard, Earnest...
Ya don't kill a guy just for riding free.
Ooh, another dead one?
Hobos: Yep, stone dead.
Guy: I ain't dead!!
Guy: Like hell I would come all the way from Japan to die in a place like this!!
Hobos: Oh? A Japanese hobo, eh?
Ya know, I think I heard that the word hobo was Japanese.
Hey, Japan Hobo.
What's Hobo mean in Japanese?
You mean houbou (方々), a vagabond that goes wherever they want...?
No, I'm no hobo!!

SFX: BAKI BAKIH
Zofuu: I... I've gotta find... some food...
At this rate... I'm really gonna die...
He said I'd meet my master...
Is he really in Los Angeles...?
Zofuu: Because the bat did say that...
I have to receive my master's manuscript...
Billy: Succeed him.
Kukuku, I'm really crazy.
It's like I finally just realized. Kukuku.
I've completely lost it.
N... No. Those are those things they call oranges here in America!!
God in heaven still has not abandoned me!!
Guy: Orange thie~~~~f!!
Guy: Wait, you bastaaaard!!
I still haven't stolen anything!!
Please forgive meee!!
Guy: You just spoke Japanese, didn'cha?!!
Zofuu: Y... Yes. I'm Japanese.
..........?! You speak Japanese, too...?
Guy: What a disgrace!! A Japanese stealing oranges!!
Zofuu: Huh? You've got the same accent as my dad.
Are you from Niigata?
Guy: What? Your old man's even from Niigita?!!
That's even more disgraceful!!
Guy: Ey, listen close...
Guy: You can't steal people's stuff.
SFX: CHOKIH (Snip)
B... But I can't steal something that belongs to someone else...
Guy: I'll tell the landlord to take it outta my pay.
Your as pale as death. Hurry up and eat.
I'm in your debt...
SFX: GAFU GAFUH
Zofuu: Um... Those scissors sure look handy.
Guy: Oh? Nice, ain't they? I made 'em myself.
SFX: GAFU GAFU
Zofuu: That's an amazing invention.
With those scissors, you could probably become a gardener.
SFX: BECHA BECHA
Guy: What're you on about? I'm a tenant farmer here. I ain't no gardener or...
Baby: UEH UE~~~~!!
Guy: Oh, did you wake up? There, there.
Baby: UE UE~~~!!
Guy: There, there.
Zofuu: Is it okay if I comfort him?
Guy: Hm...? Okay...
Baby: AU AU~~~
Guy: Oh. He stopped crying.
Zofuu: This child... what's its name...?
Zofuu: So he'll become rich?
Guy: That's right!! That's how it's written!! Pretty good, picking up on that!
Zofuu: You can see it, too?
Zofuu: I can see it, too.
You'll meet me again, someday.
Zofuu: Your life will be a chain of hardships.
Well, life's tough no matter what path you take. There's no way around it, really.
Zofuu: And you'll save the world.
If the thing I'm doing now fails...
Zofuu: You'll die.
Guy: What sorta weird things are you saying while you're holding another person's kid?!!
Zofuu: It's a manga story.
Zofuu: A manga story I have in my head.
Devivie: If I read Zofuu's manuscript,
it'll have what I want to know written in it...?
Devivie: That's what this Billy Bat is saying to you?
Devivie: And that manuscript is the one that boy called Yamashita or whatever has hanging from his neck in a wrapping cloth?
Randy: Over there.
It's in a drawer inside that hermitage
Devivie: What'd you say...?
Kevin: What's wrong?
Devivie: I burned them all!!
Kevin: Why would you do that?!!
Devivie: Because it's my job!!
It's my job to go around the world burning imitation Billy Bats!!
Devivie: The only Billy Bat there can be around the world
is Culkin-sensei's "Billy Bat"!!
Kevin: "You can't steal people's stuff."
Those are the last words my father passed to me before he died.
My assistant, Chuck Culkin, stole my character "Billy Bat".
Kevin: The only one qualified to draw "Billy Bat" is the one who succeeded him from Zofuu-sensei...
Side: "If I fail, you'll die"--- Is the future told to Kevin as a baby by the young Zofuu now coming true?!
