Title: Word.23 Llama Waterfall
Mom: You little scamp!! I've been looking all over for you!!
Pinta: I'm sorry! I'm sorry~~~~!!
SFX: SURI SURI SURI SURI SURI SURI SURI SURI SURI (Rubbing)
Mom: You said your name was Tarouza, yes? Thank you.
If there's anything we can do for you, feel free to ask any time.
I'd like to express my gratitude.
Tarouza: Mm. Thank you.
Mom: And to that little lady over there, as well.
Do cheer up.
Riemu, we're going to our village next.
Everyone there's really nice.
Lions: UWA! UWAA!! It's Tarouza!!
SFX: PATA PATA PATA
Lion: Tarouza came back!!
Where in the world's he been all this time...?!
Lion: And be brought a female back with him!!!
Lions: Uwaaa!! Scaryyyyyy!!!
Monoko, Kurokagi and Umagon are all okay!!
You came back!!
Animals: Ah! There's a female child, too!!
You're right! Another animal the same species as Tarouza!!
Tarou: Yeah. Her name's Riemu.
Riemu and I are a species called "humans".
Then if you're both humans, have you already mated or anything?
Tarou: What're you crazy?!
Capri: Not, right?
Lions: Yeah! Tarouza, you stupid idiot!!
How could you bring that female when you have Princess Capri?!
Yeah, Tarouza! You short-legged snot-nosed moron!
Just get cozy with Princess Capri already!
Tarou: Momouros, some cheese?
Lions: WAAAA! Cheeeeese!!
Tarou: Riemu went through some tough times, so she came here.
Everyone, please treat her nice.
Here, Riemu, say hello to everyone.
Llamas: Doryaa!! That's not very courteous!!
Why don't you say "nice to meet you" or something?!!
Tarou: Hey!! Don't tease her!!
Piman: HYUU! HYUUU!!
Jeek: You sure are sticking up for her!!
That's incredible!! Is this really our field that died in the fire?!
Ororon: Mm!! Just as you thought, Tarouza!
The plants and trees that died in the fire became nutrients to grow new crops.
Tarou: Amazing... That's amazing, Ororon.
Everyone in the village worked really hard on it!!
Momouros: You look like you've gotten bigger yourself, Tarouza.
I'll bet quite a lot happened on that journey, huh?
Tarouza: Mm... a little too much.
It'll be hard to explain, so I'll tell you a little bit at a time.
Tarou: Anyhow, the reason I called all the animal chiefs together
is because I have something I wanted to discuss.
Tarou: Yes, the thing is......
Momou: Mm~~~ I see......
SFX: PERA PERA PERA PERA (Talking)
Momou: Okay. Everyone will suggest an idea
and we can do the most interesting one. How about that?!
Narration: 10 days later.
Tarou: Okay everyone.
Just as you've heard from your cheifs...
Today we're going to have an athletic festival!!!
Lions: WAAAI! An athletic festivaaal!!
Motarou: So those guys are just gonna join in like it's normal...
Capri: ............There's no way I'm gonna lose to her...
Tarou: This is the starting point.
And that cedar tree you can see up there is the end point.
I call the end point the "goal"!!
The first three animals to reach the goal...
willl get this
"Vulstar" I made!!!
T/N: A reference to the Vulcan 300 toy from Konjiki no Gash!!
SFX: KAKAKAKA KAKAKAKAKA
SFX: KAKAKAK KAKAKAKA
Guys: UWAAA!! I want iiiit!!
SFX: I WANT IIIIIT!
Oiss: Hey... The adults can join in, too, right?
Lions: Princess Capri!! I want that! I really want it!
Capri: Of course! We'll be sure to win!
Tarou: There's one rule!! You have to go through the route I picked
until you reach the goal!!
If you're unfair and use a different route or a shortcut, you won't get a Vulstar even if you get to the goal!!
Guys: Got iiiiit!
Tarou: There are three Vulstars.
It's okay if you get here on your own, but if three animals work together I'm sure they'll get to the goal faster.
SFX: DADADADA DADADA
Animals: Ah! A river!!
Do we cross the river?
Tarou: Okay, the first obstacle is horse jumping!
You need to hop across the horses backs to get to the other side!!
Jeek: UWAA!! Hey, outta the way!!
Riemu: Oh, what do I do?
I'm no good at athletic things...
SFX: DOBOOON DOBOOON
Riemu: I do want a Vulstar, but...
Someone: Sis! Sis!
Boar: Sis, work with me!
I'm Muchara. I wanna do the course with you, Sis!
Sis isn't good at exercise, so...
Deer: But you have that cry that can talk with any animal.
I'm Shikappa. And I'm good at exercise.
I'll use that to help you out, Riemu.
Are you sure?
Shikappa: Then it's settled!
Animals: Here we gooooo!!
Capri: Huhuh! For someone as gentle as you, this must be hard.
I'll be taking that Vulstar!!
SFX: PYOON DOZAAA
Kurokagi: Hey... Tarouza...
SFX: DOBOON WAA WAA DOBOO DOBOON
Kurokagi: This is pretty entertaining......
Animals:Right!! Left! Riight!! (BII BIII BIII)
Reiko: Aah! We have different cries so giving directions will be...
SFX: FURA FURA FURA
Cow: I wish I'd worked together with a calf!!
Riemu: Okay. Slowly. Right. Left...
Muchara: All right!! Thanks to you, Sis, we're going really fast!!
Riemu: This is the only thing I can do...
Monoko: Ooh! Riemu and her group look like they're doing good!
Capri is catching up, too!
What's the next obstacle?
Tarou: You ride on the backs of deer while avoiding llamas as you climb up a waterfall...
Rimeu: Huuuh?! Isn't this where we started?!
We have to do the whole thing over again?!!
thought up such a horrible obstacle?!!
Narration: Of course, this guy.
Muchara: Sis, next time, Jump before the llama spits.
SFX: ZAZAZA ZAZA ZAZAZA
Narration: 3rd Try
Narration: 4th Try
Shikappa: Ah! Those kids did really well!
Muchara: Yeah... They keep getting through one after another.
Riemu: Muchara, Shikappa...
Go on ahead...
Riemu: I'm sure that you guys
are the only ones who'll be able to make it past here.
Muchara: We don't wanna do that!
We're gonna go with you, Sis!!
Riemu: I'm sorry.
I don't want to be a burden anymore.
I'm really not one of this place's animals after all...
Riemu: And to get that Vulstar that everyone wants,
would seem kind of wrong.
The fact that while everyone in my pack died,
but I'm here having fun also... feels wrong.
I... just want to live quietly here in this village so I'm not a nuisance to anyone...
So just leave here.
Capri: What're you talking about?!
Capri: You're saying that,
while everyone here is... is...
Capri: This whole athletic festival
was started for you, you know!!
Capri: To cheer you up!!
"Everyone in her pack died".
Tarouza couldn't just leave someone who went through something painful like that alone!
That's the kind of male he is!!
He helped us, too!!
He works hard to cheer others up!!
Tarou: Work together with the children.....
and everyone can have fun.
Capri: And I'm sure that everyone in this village feels the same!!!
Capri: "She feels bad about her dead comrades so she can't have fun."?
You got along with your comrades, right?!
You loved each other, right?
Then I'm sure that they would want you to smile!!
If you do, then don't think about nothing but your old comrades, look at these kids!!
Muchara: Cheer up, Sis.
SFX: PITAAN PITAAAN
Thank you, Muchara, Shikappa.
And I'm sorry for complaining......
Let's go get Vulstars together.
Riemu: I'm not gonna lose!!
Someone: We did it! We got through!!
We did it, Sis!!
Riemu: Okay, let's catch up to the kids that got ahead of us!!
Somone: UWAA! Nooo!!
Tarouza: Riemu!! No one's gotten past the next obstacle yet!!
RIemu: The next obstacle?
Tarou: Yeah! The last obstacle,
the giraffe waterfall!!
Riemu: Another... waterfall...?
Muchara: Uwaa... So big.
Riemu: That's Pinta's mom......
Mom: Okay! Use me to climb up this waterfall to the goal!
Oiss: Nobody can climb up that giraffe...
Riemu: Have you guys given it a try?
Oiss: If we could jump onto that giraffe's body
all that would be left is climbing up what's basically just a steep slope.
Sorry, but the llamas are going to take those Vulstars!!
Oiss: Y... You bastaard...
Jump, Number 1!!
Jump, Number 2!!
Jump, Number 3!!
Jump, Number 4!!
SFX: DON DON DON DON
Oiss: Jump, Number \51!!
Jump, Number 6!!
Jump, Number 7!!
Jump, Number 8!!
SFX: ZUBAAN DOBAN DOBAAN DOPAAN DOSHII
Oiss: That guy's too stro~~~~ng!!
Riemu: So that way isn't gonna work, huh?
Capri: RiemU!! Looks like we're gonna win!
Our claws make it easy to climb trees and stuff!
Just like this! Hahhahha!!
Muchara: UWAAAN!! They're getting ahead of us!!
Riemu: Wait, think about it carefully.
If we can't climb it, then animals like cattle, deer, and boars couldn't ever get past this obstacle.
Which means there must be another way.........
Someone: Aaaah! So tasty!
SFX: MOSHA MOSHA
Pinta: A~~~~h, acacia leaves are soooo good!!
SFX: CHIRAH CHIRAH
Riemu: Those, Muchara!! Go get some of those leaves!
SFX: TAH BERON
Riemu: Okay, giraffe-san!
We've got some acacia leaves for you! Come and eat!!
SFX: MUCCHA MUCCHA
Mom: Okay, get on my head.
Mom: You sure are looking happier.
These last few days, you had always been looking back.
I'm finally able to look forward.
Mom: I'm sure you'll see lots of things.
These children, what it is you should be doing next
and maybe even the beauty of this world...
Mucha: Uwaa! Amazing!!
[Lookit all that stuff.]
Riemu: Thank you, Muchara, Shikappa.
And thanks, Pinta's Mom.
Tarou: THe winners of the athletics festival
are Riemu, Muchara, and Shikappa!!!
Muchaa: UWaai! A Vulstar! A Vulstar!
Lions: UEEEN UEEEN UEEEN!
Capri: Don't cry! We just need to win next time!!
Capri: There's no way we're gonna lose to you next time, okay?!
Riemu: O... Okay.
I was thinking I would give mine to her. But it kinda looks like that would just make her angry.
Reiko: Riemu, Riemu! Let me borrow your Vulstar!
Let me play with it!
Monoko: Ooh! Riemu is smiling!
Tarouza: Yeah. It looks like she cheered up.
SFX: GON GON
Tarou: Next is these Eternity Fruits.
First, we'll need to get more of these seeds...
Narration: Gene Grail
An area a few dozen kilometers away from there.
I can't take it anymoooore!!!
Jyu: What are these things?
They make me sick......
They're different from the animals we've seen up until now......
Their smell... Their appearance... the feeling I get from them...
They're all extremely ugly and unnatural.
Jyu: You bastard...
don't bring lies into this world...

Title: Earthquake and Body
Raiku: Hellow, Raiku Makoto here.
I have a bit of an odd story this time...
When the big earthquake happened
did your bodies start feeling kind of bad?
SFX: GUUURA GUUURA
I felt under the weather after it happened.
My body felt all heavy, I got exhausted really quickly, my head felt all bloated, and I got sleepy quickly.
I felt that way the whole time the aftershocks from the big Eastern-Japan earthquake were going on.
And right around when the aftershocks ended, my body felt better...
Then when the earhquakes would start again, my body would have the same daru~~n feeling... and my head would have the same moyo~~~n feeling...
Handwritten: Yeah... There's gonna be an earthquake within 2 days...
And that's generally when they came
Do and of you readers get senses like this?
Well, whether you do or don't, it's kind of a weird conversation, isn't it......?
