Title: Word.40 The Face of Hope
Belhelm: Daaaamn. I thought we broke that elevator...
Now another bunch of weirdos showed u...
They beat him in one shot...
THese are normal animals, ain't they...?
SFX: MERI MERI MERI MERI MERI
SFX: MERI MERIM ERIRIRI RIRIRIRIRI
SFX: DODOOOO GABAAA
Belhelm: I thought so......
The one that beat Clover was especially strong.
He had abnormal strength.
Belhelm: We, the Babel Three,
are the strongest Chimeras of our respective sizes.
Belhelm: Depending on your size, there's a limit to your speed, strength, and such.
SFX: DOH DOH DOOO
Belhelm: Clover was undoubtedly the strongest of that size...
Belhelm: And you guys are "average".
You've got normal strength.
SFX: GAKU HUU HUU
Kokono: It's no good... They're all having trouble just standing up.
They must... still have the damage from the lower floor...
Giller: Animals... would you please give up on this meaningless struggle?
Tarouza is going to die.
GIller: With me speaking, you should all be able to understand.
You see Tarouza, can't you?
His heart has been pierced.
The tools needed to heal that wound
is stuck on the 930th floor and can't move.
There are other elevators,
but it's a considerable detour to get to them and will take 30 minutes to reach one.
No matter how you struggle, Tarouza will die!!
Guys: It... can't be...
I've got nothing I can say back......
I'm already giving this my all.
I'm not sure... if I can keep this up for... 3 more minutes...
SFX: HAA HAA HAA HAA
Kokono: Nor can Tarouza......
SFX: HUU HUUU HUU HUU
What's he... talking about?
SFX: HAA HAA HAA HAA
Kokono: Are you okay, Tarouza?
Get... a hold of yourself...
Buffalo: Tarouza is still alive......
Momorous: Like hell he's going to die!!
Guys: Yeah, he's not dead!!
There's no way he would just die and leave us here!!!
SFX: DADADA DADADADADADA
You guys sure are in a shitty situation, ain'cha?! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!
SFX: WAAA GAAAA GYAAAAA
Giller: Why is such suffering needed?
Do you perhaps think the sight of one enduring pain and shedding blood is beautiful?
Make it easy on yourselves, simply give up and die along with Tarouza!!
Dougan: Shut up...
Giller, you piece of shit.
Belhelm, finish up quickly.
Send them to a quiet death.
Belhelm: Heihelm!! Belhelm!!!
Giller: Why is it... that we, who at one time did not exist,
must suffer through this thing called "life"?
Despite the fact that awaiting us at the end of that suffering
is inevitably "death"...?
Are you going to die, Tarouza?
Belhelm: Hahah! I'll hand it to you guys for being persistent, but your wills are breaking now, eh?
Everyone's totally lost any composure.
SFX: KETA KETA KETA
Bel: Now then, shall we start
gradually reducing your numbers?!!
He still doesn't have the eyes of someone who's given up?
Hey, what's wrong?
That's not the sort of face you always have, right...?
Dougen: For crying out loud, what do you want, kid?!!
You're a damn eyesore!!!
SFX: BITA BITA BITA
Tarou: You... haven't been eating anything, have you?
You'll die soon at this rate.
You... can use a tiger's cry even though you're a monkey?
You've... got the same eyes as me.
The eyes of someone that's gone a little crazy.
Tarou: Yeah. Our eyes... are kinda similar, huh?
That's why I came to talk to you.
Try eating this.
Dougen: A fruit? Is this a fruit from a bush or a tree?
SFX: SUN SUN SUN
Dougen: Well, eating this won't kill me, but...
SFX: MOGU MOGU GOKUN
Dougen: If I'd had this...
If I'd had this...
SFX: DOMU DOMU DOMU DOMU DOMU
SFX: ZAZAZA DOSA
Dougen: Take the other weakened ones and head to a far-away corner.
Well... I'm not Tarouza...
so you guys won't understand what I'm saying, I guess......
Tarouza: I'm using these fruit and this cry I have that can communicate with all animals
to create a world where meat-eating animals and plan-eating animals can live together in harmony.
And a bigger pack has more power.
There are still only a few of us, but...
we're going to form a big pack
and then create that world.
Dougen: Why would you do something like that?
Tarou: Because it's a dream I came up with with my deceased mother.
Dougen: Is that all?
Tarou: I can hear the screams and the suffering of animals being eaten.
I've lived my whole life amongst that pain.
Dougen: Pain, huh...?
I can accept that answer.
Ohjay, if you get bitten by this guy, it's over.
You've got to fight from a distance.
Kokono: That tiger seems spirited...
Even though the other animals are so beat up...
SFX: HAA HAA HAA HAA
SFX: FUH FUH FUH FUH
Boar: I certainly would love a world without being eaten, but...
being with guys like that...?
Dougen: Hey, is my being here
making it hard to gather comrades?
Tarou: We need animals that wish to change this world from the bottom of their hearts.
Ones with strong hearts that will fight together with you, Dougen...
Without that, they won't be able to climb the Tower of Babel.
SFX: GON GON
looks like you haven't really weakened, eh?
SFX: NYA (Grin)
Ohjay: Stop this nonsense.
Many of my kin have been eaten by tigers.
Do you honestly expect me to travel with such an animal?
Tarou: This tiger doesn't eat meat anymore.
He eats these fruits and plants.
Ohjay: Enough foolishness!!
I, Eldada, am this herd's chief!!
Are you using that lie to lure us in so you can eat us?!
We will not fall for it!!
I told you so!!!
Tarou: Draw back your claws, Dougeeeeen!!!
Eldada will think it over a bit.
In that time, stay with your group. You must be tired from traveling, yes?
Tarou: He said he'll think about it, so stay here.
He changed his mind?
Tarou: Yeah, because you put away your claws.
changed his mind?
Bel: That tiger... he hasn't been fighting, he's just going around helping his comrades...
Is he stalling for time?!!
Could that be it?!
SFX: PIPIPI PIPI
Bel: Yeah, the other elevators aren't moving.
Just like I thought, there's no way of saving Tarouza.
I get it... These are just the actions of some pathetic animals that can't accept their fate.
In that case, I'll just kill their leader
and make them face reality...
Dougen: Hey... Tarouza......
C'mon and show me that face...
you didn't get eaten, huh?
Dougen: This kid got separated from the herd.
Guy: You can really eat this?
Dougen: Yeah. Go ahead, give it to me.
SFX: MORI BORI GOKUN
Guy: Uwaah! A tiger really ate a fruit!!
Thank you for saving me, tiger-san!!
Tarou: He says thank you, Dougen.
This little guy did?!
Dougen: That's right.
Back then, I saw light in your face.
Enemies, laughing together.
We changed the rules of this world were changed like they were nothing. That's why I decided to dedicate my life to that smiling face of yours.
SFX: DON DON DON DON DON DON DON DON
Dougen: So why?!!!
Why are you making that face like you're going to die?!!
SFX: DON DON DON DON DON
Dougen: Give us instructions!!!
Everyone is curling up in fear!!!
All I can do is desperately cling to trying to protect you!!!
But we're all trembling from the darkness before us!!!
Dougen: Catherine, Kiritobi, the weasels, Zalas!!
They all died to connect to you!!
Are you going to let their deaths go to waste?!!
Now show me the face of the Tarouza I believe in!!!
Tarou: Even with my consciousness... so faint...
that voice... gave me... strength...
Tarou: They're here......
Ohjay: You made me... break the wall...
with my horn...?
Someone: Birds are...
carrying the medical bed with a bunch of chords...
Tarou: Gather... chords......
Kokono: Those words...
Tarouza didn't abandon us.
He sensed the birds following us...
then he promptly gave the birds instructions......
and then, so everyone's efforts wouldn't go to waste...
SFX: GARA GARA GARA
Tarou: Thank you,
Tarou: I'm okay now.
Guys:I heard that!! I could hear that!!
Tarouza's okay!! He's alive!!!
They were fooling me the whole time so they could..........
They tricked me!! They made an idiot out of me!!
You bunch of protozoa think you can make a fool out of meeee?!!!
Dougen: MORI MORI GOKUN
You ate it?!!
There's nothing to be afraid of anymore.
SFX: MERI MERI MERI MERI MERI MERI MERI MERI
What's with those muscles?!
Now that I think of it... Even though the other animals were tottering on their feet...
that guy alone was moving normally...
Dougen: All of you, rest.
My body's in a different state.
Because I would eat anything
When I had met Tarouza, I stopped eating like that,
but before that......
I killed and at them all
That was a form I hated and put behind me, but...
Dougen: I think it would be a good idea to show that form now.
Don't you think,
Give it your all, Dougen!!
