Title: Word.17 Journeys Are a Risk to One's Life
Bird: CHICCHI CHIII CHII CHII!!
Tarou: Okay, I see.
Thanks, got it.
Take this as a thank you.
Bird: CHICCH CHIH CHIH CHIH
SFX: PATATATATATA TATA
Tarouza: Pinta, I found out what direction there's a pack of giraffes in.
Tarouza: It's all the over that mountain and a ways past that.
And the sea should be on the way, for certain.
Monoko: Okay, let's go, Dabo.
SFX: MOSHA MOSHA MOSA
SFX: MOSHA MOSHA MOSA MOSHA
SFX: MOSHA MOSHA MOSAH MOSHA
Monoko: Okay, let's get going!
SFX: IYA IYA IYA IYA (No no no no) GUGUGUGUGUG
narration: The llama's preferred method of attack is spitting.
Umagon: MERU MERU MERU MERU MERU!
Narration: It spits at things that it sees as unpleasant.
SFX: TAH TAH TAH TAH
Tarou: Hey, Dabo!! Please get along with everyone!!
SFX: BAH BAH BAH
Tarou: And Pinta! It's dangerous to go that far ahead!!
SFX: ARORO RORO
Tarou: There's a lot of dangerous things with journeys!
Hey, Kurokagi! You used to travel a lot, so you know what I'm talking about, right?
How dangerous journeying is?
Well, we're pretty much okay, ain't we?
Kuro: Giraffes are tall, plus they have good eyes.
Those huge eyes ain't just for show.
So if a meat-eating animal shows up,
he'll realize right away.
I remember there was this pack of giraffes I saw a long time ago,
and there were lots of plant-eating animals besides giraffes around them.
Giraffes are pretty reliable as lookouts.
Tarou: Really...? Then if we just look at Pinta's face,
we'll be able to tell whether or not there are any enemies around?
SFX: GATA GATA GATA GATA GATA GATA GATA GATA GATA (Trembling)
There's an enemy!!!
SFX: GAKU GAKU GAKU GAKU GAKU
Tarou: Uwaa... They're pretty close by.
Pinta!! Slowly step back!!
Slowly, while maintaining eye contact!
SFZ: OZU OZU OZU (Nervously)
SFX: TAH TAH
Narration: The llama's method of attack is spitting.
SFX: TAH TAH
Narration: They spit on those they hate.
SFX: BUSHA BAH
Hyenas: GYAU GYAU!!
So they ran away, eh......?
Tarou: So he's still alive...?
Let me treat you.
Kuro: Tarou, hurry up with that treatment.
The hyenas are the ones chasing us.
They're forming a pack now.
If they call their comrades, we could be in trouble.
SFX: HYU HYU
Tarou: Can you stand up, Dabo?
SFX: YORO YORO (Tottering)
Tarou: Okay everyone, let's go!!!
SFX: ORO ORO ORO
Pinta: We're surrounded...
Kuro: Tarouza, tell Pinta to run to where there are fewest of them!!
Tarou: Pinta! Run to where there are the fewest hyenas!!
Kuro: If we can break through one spot,
I can take care of anyone that follows!!!
There's just one child!!!
That's a spot I can get through!!!
Hyena: Hell awaits you.
SFX: BI YAH [Leave the stuff in the bubbles, because it's part of the artwork.]
UWAaA!!! They came out of the ground behind me?!!
SFX: DO ZA ZA ZA
Hyena: A giraffe, eh...? Well, you're finished now.
Guy: Now, then......
SFX: MERI MERI MERI
Guy: How about I tear you apart and eat you, bones and all?
SFX: MEKI MEKI MEKI MEKI MEKI
Guy: A lynx?!!
Guy: A lynx protecting a giraffe?!!
Big guy: I don't believe it. A lynx protecting a plant-eating animal?!
So the report the guys that got earlier on was true?!!
Guy: So it would seem.
They're different from "those guys".
Perhaps we picked a fight with the wrong folks.
Tarou: Wrong folks?!!
Guy: If it's not them, then...
Did he just...
Guy: Lynx, I'll be your opponent!!
You guys get back!! Don't attack them!!
SFX: BARIN GOKIN BARIN
Monoko: He bit through a bone just like that...
How strong are those jaws?!!
SFX: GOH GAN
SFX: KAA DOH
SFX: BYU OH DOGAAA
SFX: GYAAAA BA
SFX: BYU OH
Guy: Got yoooooou!!!
Kuro: She's strong!!!
But I can't lose here!!!
I have to beat this strongest one, their boss,
and make the other hyenas lose their fighting spirit.
There's no way I can take on this many hyenas
and get out of here alive!!!
Hyena: Oh no!! The wound from Ena-sama's last fight!!!
Ena: Hm. Just a little more...
and I'll be able to tear off this arm.
And then I'll be able to tear off this lynx's head!!!
You, the one they're calling Ena, draw back your fangs!!
Tarou: Kurokagi, these hyenas mistook us for other animals and attacked us!!
So there's no need for us to fight!!
Isn't that right?
One they call Ena?
Ena: U an use a ayea's ry?
Tarou: I can speak with lynxes, too!!
I said to stop fighting!!
Ena: Why shoul I belieb wha you sei?
Tarou: Do you believe me now?!!
My cry gets through to him!!
Kurokagi won't fight anymore!!
Kuro: Tarouha, efen if you o this
e won le us o...
Tarou: Please!! Stop this meaningless fight!!!
Ena: Everyone, the fight is over.
Put away your fangs.
Bring these guys to the hideout.
Every last one of them.
SFX: GATA GATA GATA GATA GATA GATA GATA
Kurou: Hey... Tarouza, this really ain't good, is it?
Monoko: Taro-chan, what's gonna happen to us?
just what are you going to do with us...?
Ena: Shut up and follow.
Ena: What's wrong?
Jaara has died!
Is that so...?
I'll be right there.
SFX: SHIKU SHIKU SHIKU AOOOOOOO SHIKU SHIKU (crying)
Guy: Farewell, Jaara.
SFX: KAH KAH
Monoko: He... He just ate...
his own fallen comrade's flesh.
Pinta: I'm sca~~~red! Wa~~~~~~h!!
Umagon: Meru~~~ Merumerumeru~~!!
Pinta: I knew it, we're gonna be eate~~n!!
SFX: GAH GAH GAH GAH
Tarou: This is scary!!!
Eating their own species...?
Every one of them
a little at a time...
SFX: GAH BIRI
Tarou: It's scary...
SFX: GOKUN (Gulp)
Become part of my body!
Tarou: It's odd......
It... doesn't feel painful.
Normally, when I see animals being eaten
it hurts, it feels so awful, even if there was nothing I could do.
And seeing animals eat the flesh of their own species
should be the most repulsive thing ever, but...
Ena: What is your name?
Ena: Why did you intervene in the fight between me and the lynx?
Because you knew I "mistook you" and attacked you?
Even so, you were basically throwing your life away.
That was too reckless.
Tarou: After you said you'd "mistook" us,
you said "If it's not them, don't take the children's lives."
So I trusted you.
Have you had many lives before this one?
Ena: It's true that we eat meat.
But even so, we have laws.
Ena: We don't eat females or children.
And we only eat those we respect.
Then, that deceased comrade, too?
Ena: Yes, that's right.
Jaara was my friend and gallant warrior.
Ena: Jaara's strength... And his way of life,
by eating his flesh, we make it part of our bodies.
Ena: He lives on inside my body.
UuUUU Ouh Ouh Ouh
Ena: They appeared?!!
Tarouza, come with me!!
What're you going to do?!
Ena: Can your cry communicate with animals besides hyenas and lynxes?!!
Tarou: My cry
can be understood by all animals!
The reason I brought you here was because of your cry!
Tarou: My cry?
Ena: Yes. There's an animal that I want to know what's thinking!!!
Take a good at my wound
and everyone around us.
Everyone's covered in wounds.
Who do you think did that?
Tarou: What?! Other meat-eating animals?
Or was it a territorial dispute or something?
It was horses.
Tarouza: Grass eating animals are attacking meat-eating animals?!!!
SFX: DO GAAA
Grass-eating animals do fight back when they're attacked!!!
But we haven't done anything yet!!
We haven't attacked them, and we haven't destroyed any horse territory either!!!
So why are you attacking?!!
SFX: ZAH ZAH ZAH ZAH
SFX: ZAH ZAH GU GU ZAH DOS ZAH
Guy: They're stepping on top of their fallen comrades......
you all doing...?
SFX: ZAH ZAH ZAH ZAH
Tarou: What in the world are you thinking?!!
Horse: That cry,
are you perhaps.......... a human?
