Title: Word.14 Jyu, Beast, Freedom
T/N: "Jyu" is the name of the character. The word for beast here is read "Jyuu" and the word for freedom is "Jiyuu".
I really like you.
Don't you want to crush me with those fangs?
Wolf: VOU VOU VOU VOU VOU VOU VOU!!!
SFX: DOSHASHASHA SHASHASHA
SFX: BA BAH
Jyu: Not good. I'm not dead.
You couldn't kill a tiny creature like me in one attack?
You've got the best eyes.
Do you really not have a problem
with being an underling to these guys?
Jyu: The boss always gets first dibs on prey, right?
So there must also be times when there isn't much prey and you can't even eat.
Nor can you mate with the females you're enamored by.
Take a look. This guy
What about you? Are you scared?
You certainly seem fine.
You're stronger than the boss.
Jyu: You should be the one to kill me.
Not that coward.
Jyu: Nice, isn't it?
To bear your fangs whenever you feel like it?
Eat the things you want to eat...
SFX: FUH FUH FUH
Jyu: When you were eating me
you had the best look on your face.
I really love
looking at faces like that!
I can't die with you, though.
SFX: ZURU ZURU
Nice and warm!
Hu~~~~ hu~~~ hu~~~
Somebody: It's coming down!!
SFX: MERI MERI MERI MEI
SFX: KAH KAH KAH KAH KAH KAH
Thing: Woah!! The trees are turning into all different shapes!
Beaver teeth are amazing, aren't they?
Thing: The beavers are whittling it with your tools, too, right?
But I asked squirrels and mice to carve the detailed parts.
SFX: KAKAKA KAKA
Beaver: Yo, Tarouza!
We're pretty much done.
Taro: Thanks Beacer Kuni-kun!
Kuni: Oh, this? It was nothin'.
Guy: Okay, our time to shine next.
Thing: Give it your all, Dad!!
Guy: Leave it to me, Dan!
Okay, let's go you guys!!
SFX: GON GON GON
SFX: DAN DAN
Guys: All riiiiiight!!
The "bridge" is doooone!!!
Dan: Dad! Tarouza! Is it okay if I cross it?
Taro: It's okay to now.
Dad, look, looK! The river is below me!!
Woah!! I could never get to that spot on that side before!!
Now I can even go past it!
Don't go too far, now!
SFX: KOKO KOKO KON
Tarouza, you allowed us to make somethin' pretty good.
And there's some tasty grass and a rock salt cave on the other side.
Bull: Well, uh...
I didn't just mean food.
You brought us another, different, happiness.
Guy: It's Meyoshi's flute!
That sound means a meat-eating animal has entered the territory!!
Taro: Momouros!! Bring Dan back!!
You other guys, return to your families!! Hurry!!
Let's hurry to the place the flute was coming from!!
Jyu: No, you don't need to go anywhere.
I already came here.
Jyu: That monkey had some good timing, blowing that whistle.
Now I can talk to you without anyone interrupting.
What happened? Is something wrong?
Sorry... Not only was I bitten, but they hid my flute......
I was just finally able to blow it...
Tarouza's in danger.
That guy is already heading to where Tarouza is.
That guy... is dangerous.
He's so scary...
SFX: GATA GATA GATA GATA GATA GATA
Taro: What... did you do to the guard monkey?!
Jyu: He's fine. I let him live.
the same species of animal as me, aren't you?
Jyu: Yeah. Probably.
My name is Jyu.
What's your name?
Jyu: Okay Tarouza.
I hate you. Disappear.
This boy... How could he just say that out of the blue......?
Jyu: I discovered this village a little while ago.
There are different species living together and getting along here.
I hate that.
The one who set this up,
is you, the one who can talk to all animals, right?
Tarou: Is there any problem with that?!
Other animals being able to understand each other is a happy thing!!
Jyu: Understand each other? Yeah, right.
Even in this buddy-buddy state their in is just on the surface.
Tarou: It's not just on the surface!!
Someday, animals that eat meat will be able to get along with them, too!!
Jyu: Animals that eat meat?
You're saying that animals that eat plants and animals that eat meat will get along?
Jyu: So you're saying you'll tell animals that eat meat
not to eat meat?
That's right, but...
Jyu: So the plant eating animals can eat whatever they want,
but the meat eating animals aren't allowed to eat meat?!
What kind of friendliness is that?!
How could you not feel bad for the meat-eating animals?!
You truly are not needed in this world!!!
Momou: Tarouza!! Blow your whistle to gather everyone here, quickly!!
This guy is an enemy!!
Jyu: This world is built on the foundation of killing and eating one another.
SFX: BOTA BOTA BOTATA
Tarou: Yeah!! But I don't think the side that get's eaten
was born in order to become food!!!
Or where strong animals end up as the ones killed, either!
I want a world different from this eat or be eaten world!!
Jyu: But you see, that's no fun.
If you obey the world and enjoy the rule of "eat or be eaten", you won't have any regrets.
Jyu: Kill what you hate, eat what you want to eat, and do what you want to do.
If you just learn to like that, then even if you end up on the eaten side, you can "accept" it.
SFX: GIRI GIRI GIRI GIRI GIRI
Jyu: "I kill and eat, too. And that's fun."
"So is there anything to regret about being eaten?"... That's what I mean.
Plant eating animals are the same as well.
If they don't want to be eaten by meat-eating animals, they just need to get other, weaker, animals eaten in their place.
Then they survive
and eat delicious things to a full belly.
And make the females they like, theirs.
Only those that live honest to their own desires
are those that respect this thing called life.
That is the correct, best
most beautiful world.
Jyu: Don't drag lies into this world.
What are you calling lies?
SFX: DAH SHUBAH
Animals: U OH!! [Leave the original text here are put this in the margins.]
If you make one move, this bull's head goes flying.
Jyu: While we're at it,
if you want this bull to live, follow my conditions.
Kurokagi: Yeah, we'll let you escape.
Just make that dog take its fangs off that bull's neck.
Don't screw around.
You're this bull's child, right?
Jyu: Kill Tarouza.
If you do that, I'll spare your dad.
Momou: Dan! Stop!!
SFX: GIRI GIRI
Stop!! I won't let you kill him!!!
Jyu: Yes, just like that!
You'll take another life in order to save your family.
Jyu: That is the true nature of an animal.
The beautiful, honest form.
So what do you think, Tarouza?
You're being killed by one of your so-called friends.
Can you still say that all this isn't just on the surface?
Momou: If you kill Tarouza,
I won't consent to it.
Momou: If you hadn't eaten the hay that Tarouza had made
you might have died over the winter where we had no food.
Jyu: That's old news.
Right now, Dan wants his dad to live more than he does Tarouza.
Tarou: Stop it, Jyu!!
Get those fangs off of Momouros!!!
Momou: It's a mysterious cry.
It's mysterious that he can talk to all animals with different cries.
And beyond that... to bring happy ideas into our minds.
Jyu: Happy things?
Momou: Like "fields",
Talking to us about other animals' thoughts...
In the form of his "cry"
new things are entering our minds.
Momou: The more I've talked with Tarouza
I've been able to think in ways different from anything I've ever thought before.
Even though we never knew about before,
somehow, if it's through Tarouza's voice, we "can".
Before I met Tarouza
Eating, sleeping, raising my child,
and as you say, my own survival were all I thought about.
"That was all I could do".
But now, I've made comrades.
And become able to do all kinds of different things.
That is called a "bridge".
Momou: We were able to build this gigantic thing.
Isn't is incredible?
And "moving forward" is
an unbelievably happy thing.
I didn't just mean food.
You brought us another, different, happiness.
I want to let Dan
talk more with Tarouza.
Momou: I want him to talk with Tarouza a lot.
And move further forward than I have.
We're tired of the world you're talking about
where you only care about your own survival!!!
Momou: For something like this...
there's no way I'll let Tarouza be kiiiiilled!!!
SFX: BA BAH
Tarou: Momorous!! Momorous!!!
SFX: HAA HAA HAA
You're not wrong...
Momou: If we keep moving forward with you,
you can become friends with meat-eating animals.
Kuro: You'd better not expect to get out of this territory unscathed.
Jyu: Ooh, ooh, ooh!!! Well aren't those are some nice anger-filled faces?!
I love them.
Jyu: Yo... Bull.
You said before that you wanted to move forward?
SFX: GARA GOSO
Jyu: Even if you do move forward, you won't be making friends with anybody.
No matter how you struggle, the foundation of animals is "killing and eating each other".
SFX: GURU GURU (Wrapping)
Jyu: By killing each other,
animals use their heads the most
Jyu: and attempt to move forward the most!!!
SFX: ZUZAZAZAZAZAZAZAZA ZAZAZAZAZAZAZAZAZAZA
Jyu: The desire to "kill"
is even involved in driving death to a forest.
I call this "fire".
