Okay, so it looks like HHF ends at the end of Volume 8. I'll be trying to allocate some time to get through to the end of the series in the coming weeks. I've got so much shit to do... But when these 33 or so chapters get done, this series will be all over. So I'm gonna really try to get there. V8 hasn't been released yet though. This volume's on the easy side, at least.

Bottom: This is a work of function. All real-life persons, groups, or events are completely unrelated.
Someone: The Prime Minister is not on standby.
When the commercial is over, we'll cut to Prime Minister Kasuga.
Title: Life52 Black Action
Something: We now welcome Cabinet Prime Minister Kasuga Souichirou.
SFX: PI PIRURURU
Jun-chan's in trouble...
TV: We're so glad you could stop by, Prime Minister.
After the event yesterday, we're actually quite surprised
that you're even coming on our program.
Screen: Urgent Appearance of Prime Minister Kasuga!!
Talking about his inspection of the Daiichi Fukushima Power Plant
TV: You didn't say anything to the crowd that gathered around your residence.
But now you're here to talk to everyone.
That day, it looked like you had purposefully not said anything.
Kasuga: Well, it wasn't that I purposefully wasn't talking, rather that I didn't think my voice would reach all the way to the back.
That's why I chose this venue where I was sure I could be heard.
Guy: In that case, I'd like to ask.
To be blunt, It seemed like a reckless thing to do,
when did you first think of drinking that contaminated water?
Kasuga: I thought of it quite a while ago.
And I thought it would be best to do as soon as possible.
But I supposed that this event would bring on active debates over its pros and cons.
Guy: But Prime Minister, after you did that reckless deed
you declared that your own body was the current state of Japan.
What is it you would go so far to say to the people?
Tate: Yes, sir?
Kasuga: What I want to say is simple.
Kasuga: I wanted to tell them the resolve of one politician to "follow through"...
That is all.
Guy: But putting such a dangerous substance in your body may be harmful to your health, yes?
Many people have seen that as a highly questionable thing for the leader of a country to do.
Kasuga: Tatemura-san, would you mind if I asked one thing?
Tate: No, go right ahead.
Kasuga: I've refused to have a physical examination after the power plant inspection.
That's because there would be no way to prove causation between any illness and the radioactive materials.
So I would like to ask something of this country's citizens.
I would like you all to decide if it would be a good idea for me to have an examination.
And if I do
Kasuga: I would like to convey the state of my health
in real time.
Guy: That's crazy!
What's he talking about?
Kasuga: I'll come here once a week to report on any changes.
Guy: We're cutting to a commercial!
Conveying data on a person that might've gotten radiation poisoning live?
If the P.M. does something like that, he'll take over the program!
Now the interest of the nation will be driven towards him even further.
So this is the reason the Prime Minister decided to appear here live?
Guy: Excuse me, Tatemura-san.
Guy: When we get back from commercial, we're going to run an urgent news report on the bottom of the screen.
Tate: What? Why?
Guy: Former Prime Minister Izumi has collapsed and has been brought to the hospital.
Both: Is it Kubo...?!
Screen: Breaking News
Screen: Former Prime Minister Izumi Jyun has been rushed
TV: We have just received some urgent news.
I'm afraid that...
SFX: SHU SHU...
Daiki: Don't tell me...
it was you...?
SFX: SHU... SHU...
Kubo: Daiki-san, would you like me to teach you the trick to living a good life?
First, you find what it is you were born to do,
and then you remove everything that gets in the way of it.
you're out there watching, aren't you?
Riyon: You're one person
I can't forgive.
Kubo: Will your spirit body be extinguished?
Or will my earthly body break down?
Kubo: How 'bout we try and see?
Riyon: There're black balls
inside of me...?!
