Title: Message from the Izumi Family
Such an honor...
Jyun: Being invited by the acting Prime Minister, and in person.
But you know, Kasuga,
there's one great axiom I've come to believe from the life I've lived in the world of politics.
That at the root of their choices, a poor human never changes.
you may have gained confidence from those interesting psychic powers you got ahold of,
but Kasuga, a man's true nature doesn't change, does it?
At your foundation,
you're just yesman that wants balance...
Riyon: This old man can't buy into the abilities of the man he's talking to that easily.
Because the moment he does, leadership will be taken from him.
But he's right.
Humans' preconceptions and thinking patterns don't change that easily.
Riyon: He's sayin' old man Kasuga "May have gained some power, but the fact that he's a small fry won't change."
So this is how an incredible politician survives...
Riyon: Don't let him beat you, Old Man.
Go for it.
you've become quite cowardly, haven't you?
In your Prime Minister days, I'm sure you had a much more vigorous sense of curiosity.
Kasuga: It's true that the former Kasuga Kouichirou used to be a yesman that just went for balance.
But humans can change. ["can" in italics]
If we shift our viewpoint, we can come to see things that we could not before.
C'mon, keep it up!
Kasuga: It's like when you first think about buying a car, suddenly commercials and prices start to mean something.
When a sort of channel opened for me,
Kasuga: It became able to talk with a god.
Riyon: Hey, hey!
Old Man, that ain't true!
Kasuga: Would you like to try sensing a God, too, Izumi-san?
Let's give it a shot...
Kasuga: Riyon... please do something for me.
[She's ADORABLE in that shot.]
Kasuga: Please. We need this guy for the Core Government.
Riyon: That's really rash.
But, if he met his Guardian Spirit in his dreams...
he might have good instincts.
Riyon: Tell him to close his eyes and concentrate on his stomach.
Kasuga: Close your eyes and focus your consciousness on your navel.
and breathe out...
SFX: SUU HAA
SFX: SUU SUU
[This shit's crazy!]
Why are you crying?
Jyun: My mom and dad...
The Izumi family was crying.
Kasuga: So you met your ancestors?
What was that?
Kasuga: I can't explain it myself.
If you would move forward with me, we may be able to figure it out.
Hajime: This country has two Prime Ministers...
If this gets out, will the public allow it...?
Riyon: Why were Izumi's ancestors crying?
What message were they trying to send...?
