Title: Life26 FRICTION
Guys: Prime Minister!
You announced today that you would be abandoning the nuclear power program, how will you be fighting resistance to that plan?
There's also expectation of considerable opposition from within the ruling party.
Kasuga: Whenever large changes are enacted, a resident force will appear... it's a natural result.
But fearing such opposition will not change anything.
For the sake of this country, I believe that denuclearization is the best choice.
Kasuga: For that end, I will be fighting this out with all my strength.
So I would hope that all of the citizens of this country believe in me as we go through this process.
Have we had any Prime Ministers like this who would make such bold declarations in recent history?
But I wonder if he'll be okay, going this far.
RIyon: Good. It's goin' well.
Guy: Prime Minister.
We've heard that your son collapses last night.
Could you tell us his condition?
We've received information that it's fairly serious, but do you think he'll be all right?
Riyon: These guys already know about all that?
Kasuga: It's true that my son is currently on a sickbed.
that's a matter with no connection to the political situation.
But even you are a father, Prime Minister...
You're not unconcerned with your family's well being, yes?
Kasuga: I'll state this clearly.
Before my son is a member of the Kasuga family, he's a citizen of Japan.
Kasuga: So just because he's the Prime Minister's son doesn't mean he'll be treated specially.
If he's suffering, I will worry about him as I would any other citizen.
Riyon: Well said, old man.
This'll touch everyone's hearts.
You can't let a single... minute or second go to waste.
Guy: What's wrong?
Kasuga: You look puzzled. Is there anything off?
Guy: A... Ah
Guy: Incredible... Is this PM for real?
I feel like he could really change this country.
The people have been waiting for a leader like this.
Kasuga Souichirou... Maybe he's really got something!
Kasuga: Yes, maybe I have got something.
Riyon: With the old man got his resolve worked up, his words
can change everyone's thinking.
Jyun: I thought something was odd.
For Prime Minister Kasuga to announce something like denuclearization...
I knew he'd need to have a pretty strong brain behind him.
Jyun: Kasuga said so in that surprise interview today, didn't he?
His son may be a member of his family, but he's also a citizen.
I suppose so.
Daiki: But I suppose you won't mind me taking it as encouragement, yes?
for you to decide.
Daiki: Though I don't intend on fighting with you, Dad.
But that Kasuga, is really something. Calling on you, and all.
[Heh. What was that about?]
Daiki: Dad is serious.
Guy: I looked into it a bit. And there are rumors floating around that Kasuga is making an underground government.
Daiki: When he finds something interesting, he'd even throw his own son away.
That's the kind of man he is.
Kubo: This government you talk about sounds like a truly terrifying world.
The parent does this to the kid... The kid does that to the parent...
Even kill, sometimes.
But if you think about it closely, this could be a big chance for us.
Kubo: If you beat him here, that means you'll have surpassed your dad, Daiki-san.
it's just as you say.
SFX: BOWA BOWA
Daiki: For me,
that's a wall that I have to overcome at some point.
Kubo: I know, right?
SFX: BOWA BOWA
[I'll kill everybody, hehehe!]
