SFX: KORO KORO KORO... (Roll)
Victoreem: Hey. Could you pick up my sock?
Victoreem: There. Got you out.
But it might be bad if Giller found out about this.
Luke: Yeah...... But I want to meet her.
Luke: The human.
The one that isn't Giller.
The sound that came from lower down in the tower is from humans and animals fighting, isn't it?
SFX: PI PI PI PERA PERA PERA...
Victoreem: That's what it looks like...
Luke: Why are those guys weaker than chimeras challenging us to a fight?
Luke: This man
and the woman whose arm I broke...
The other Chimeras might not understand, but you and I do.
SFX: PETA PETA PETA PETA
Victoreem: Because we have an "I" in us.
Luke: I don't understand that, you idiot!
Victoreem: Did you call me an idiot?! Then you're a moron!!
The corpses are increasing just to protect a corpse.
Riemu: They're not corpses!! They're still alive!!
Riemu: A smile?
An honest one......?
Looking at animals dying
makes this man......
Giller: Everything's going well...
You have memories
from before you came to this era, don't you?
Riemu: Kuou called us here to this age all at the same time!
A whale named Hector told that to Tarouza.
Among them, Tarouza, Capri and I were all about the same age.
But you were much older!!
How old were you when you came to this era?
7 years old? Or around 10?
If so, then you should have memories of of your mother, family, and friends from the age you were born in!!
What happened then?
Why are you trying to destroy animals?
Giller: For the sake
Giller: The plan is moving along smoothly.
80% of them will die on that floor.
The remaining 20% will be cleaned up by the Chimera on the next floor.
SFX: PIPIN... PINPIN...
Riemu: There's still......
things in here like that one?
Giller: Beyond it.
And beyond that.
And beyond that.
They will all die.
That is an unavoidable fate.
Giller: I must progress on my research, as well.
Riemu, you'll me telling me the code to get into Abel.
And I will give the Chimeras eternal life.
Riemu: I told you, I don't know it...
Giller: There is no longer any use in playing dumb.
There is a mountain of tools and drugs here for making you confess.
SFX: UIIIN UIIIN
Giller: And where do you think you're going?!!
I can't get captured yet!!
Tarouza and the others are trying so hard!!
I have things I should to do here!!
SFX: ZUKIN ZUKIN
Riemu: I have to help everyone!!!
Bird: I found it! There's a passageway that leads upwards, Tarouza!!
Look through my eyes!! The brown building is a landmark for it!!
Tarouza: Okay! We'll get around that Chimera
and head upwards!!!
Guys: Move Catherine!!
SFX: ZUZU... ZUZUZU
What are... you doing...?
SFX: GAGAGA ZUGA
SFX: DOHYU DOHYU
SFX: BAH BAH
SFX: GOH GOH
Tarouza: Now, move her!!!
Catherine: Pretending you can't hear me won't work!
What idiotic stunt are you trying to pull?!
You should at least know that there's no treating this wound, don't you?!
Catherine: Leave me here!!
I'll be a shield, just go up to the next floor!!
If you try to carry a body as big as mine,
you'll make it so other animals that could escape do not!!!
Catherine: I thought so......
You can't stop shaking, can you?
SFX: DODO DODODO
Catherine: I'm still a mother.
I can see right through kids.
Catherine: I met you two years ago...
And we've traveled together ever since then, but...
Catherine: you've always been the kind of child who endures on his own, haven't you?
Catherine: Whenever you would gather more animals to go to the Tower of Babel...
and become friends
you would go out at night alone to look out at the stars, and cry.
Because you felt that the animals you'd made friends with
would die in this battle.
Tarou: I can see the brown building!! Just a little further, keep it up!!
Catherine: But you
made sure to talk to us, didn't you?
Tarou: Fighting this battle
will mean I've going to kill everyone.
Will you still come with me?
Guy: Push, Ohjay!
You said you'd kill us.
Catherine: So what is this...?
Catherine: You said those tough things, but you haven't changed on the inside at all...
Whenever you'd hear the screams of an animal far away
those shoulders of yours would immediately shiver.
SFX: DON DON
Catherine: Whenever an animal would die, your heart always looked like it was being crushed.
So you desperately tried to endure it.
Catherine: What about now?!!
Your whole body hurts, doesn't it?!
Fighting is painful, isn't it?!!
Tarou: Be quiet!! It doesn't hurt!! It's not painful!!
So don't talk anymore, Catherine!! You're spitting up blood!!!
Catherine: You be quiet!!!
And yet, you pretend to be okay while you hurt and suffer
and try to take on eeeverything on your own!!
SFX: MEKI MEKI MEKI MEKI MEKI MEKI
Catherine: That is why I
don't line my consciousness with yours!!!
Because you're a cute little child that even lost his mother that supported him,
and you always cry alone by yourself...
Catherine: how could I make you bear my pain, tooooooo?!!!
Animals: I could hear that...
I could tell what she yelled
even though we have different cries.
Kurokagi: Thank you.
I feel the same way.
Catherine: Now... Tatouza, go up...
Become a devil...
Don't let me life... go to waste...
SFX: BOTA BOTA BOTATA
Tarou: Leave Catherine here, everyone go up to the next floor!!!
Don't fall behind!!!
Don't let Catherine's actions be in vain!!!
Catherine: Well directed...
Something: The animals have escaped the 4th floor and are heading upwards.
SFX: BIKUH (Surprise)
SFX: ZAZAZA BAN
Giller: What're you doing?!
How many animals were killed?!
Computer: The number of dead animals is 0.
Computer: Only the Hippo that's blocking the passageway
has blood loss and external wounds severe enough that it will not be able to maintain vital activity.
SFX: GUGU GUGUGU
Catherine: Mahch! Mahch!
You all were in the river with him, weren't you?!
Why didn't you go help him?!!
Guys: Get out!
Get out of here!!
Catherine: Get rid of the world of eating and being eaten?
I'll go with you.
You guys were insulting me, weren't you?!
Even with different cries, I can tell!
Don't make fun, you meat-eating animals!!
It looks like... I'm all alone again..
All I have next to me is this monster...
Catherine: Lonely, isn't it...?
They was fun...
The days I spent with everyone...
Tarou: I can convey Catherine's cry to everyone!!!
She said "The days of being together with everyone were fun"
I think so, too!!!
Don't you guys?!
Everyone who liked Catherine,
Catherine: Your cries...
Tarou: Head uuuuuuuuup!!!

Title: Omake Page
Escape from Fatness!!
Raiku: I lost weight.
I lost 11 kilos.
Because of what happened in my physical examination.
Doctor: I was told at age 37 that if I didn't change my ways, I would end up with diabetes.
I thought that diabetes was just a disease that made my pee sweeter, but...
Handwriting: That doesn't sound so bad...
T/N: The kanji that make up diabetes literally mean "Sugar urine disease".
Raiku: But when I read up on it, I learned that diabetes is a disease that will never heal once you get it.
Handwritten: It can't be cured?!!
Raiku: If I got diabetes, I would have dietary restrictions and have to take daily medication.
And if I was negligent about taking it, I could have to undergo dialysis, my limbs could get necrosis, or I could lose my eyesight...
Raiku: Man, this is no joke.
So I started seriously on a diet.
The diet I did had two main parts.
Make sure to take a walk each day and don't eat or drink before bed.
Without relying on any dietary products they have on TV and such,
these two things were plenty.
But the one that really did it was not eating or drinking before bed.
I couldn't eat 6 hours before I went to sleep.
SFX: GOGYUUU GOBURUGUGUGU
Raiku: At first, it was pretty tough not getting any reward for doing it the whole day,
Handwritten: P... Please, help me out... Just one beer to get the work done...
Raiku: After it became a habit, it got pretty easy.
Handwritten: When I wake up, I can have a nice meal. [Heart]
Raiku: And the bad numbers went back to normal.
If I can maintain this body weight, first of all there'll be no danger of diabetes.
Handwritten: You sure worked hard on that. It's all okay now.
Raiku: Diabetes has a lot to do with genes.
So whether you're obese or not, if one of your parents had diabetes, please be careful.
Handwritten: My mother was at risk of diabetes.
