Page 1:
Kevin: This man's true life............
His real history......
Side: What was the world Kurusu was... was supposed to want?!
Title: Chapter 123 Kiyoshi's Life [6/8]

Page 2:
[Look at little Kiyoshi go.]

Page 3:
Kids: Ooh!!
Kids: WoaH! It really looks like he's moving!!
Kids: You drew that flippy manga all on your own?
I knew you were a genius at drawing, KiyoshI!

Page 4:
Kurusu: Hehe......
It's not a flippy manga, it's called an animation.
Kid: Ani......?
Kurusu: Haven't you heard of it?
Kiyayama Seitarou-sensei from Kitayama Movie Productions
and also Shimokawa Outen-sensei are making animated movies.
Kids: HAAH......
Kurusu: It's a kind of motion picture.
The era of animated movies is coming!!
Kids:HA~~~H. I'm not sure I get it, but that sounds pretty big.
You're too smart, Kiyoshi. I can barely understand what you're saying.

Page 5:
Kiyoshi: I'm baaaack!!
Mom: Welcome back, Kiyoshi!! Um.....
Dad: Oh, Kiyoshi, you're back! I was just about to pour a Calpis.
Kurusu: Waa! Calpis!!
Mom: Hey!! Wash your hands first!!
Kurusu: Okaaaay!
Huh? Were you about to say something, Mom?
Mom: Ah, well.........
Dad: Here, I poured it. Let's make a toast!
Kurusu: Did something good happen?

Page 6:
Mom: Well, Kiyoshi, your father has become chief clerk.
Kiyoshi: Chief clerk?!! So you're a big-shot at the factory now, huh?
Dad: Well, I dunno about big-shot, but I'm doing all right.
You're smart Kiyoshi, so you've gotta become even more of a big-shot.
Kiyoshi: But, Dad, I.....
I want to become an animator!!
Mom: Oh, this boy, he's using more of those difficult words...
Kiyoshi: It's not a difficult word! It's a kind of motion picture.....
Dad: It sounds good.
You're great at drawing, Kiyoshi!!
There's nothing better than having a dream!!

Page 7:
Kurusu: Dad!!

Page 8:
Kurusu: HAA
Dad: Kiyoshi!!

Page 9:
Dad: You're okay, Kiyoshiiii?!!
Kurusu: Dad. The house...... The house.....
Dad: It's okay if the house is gone.
As long as we have our lives, we'll manage somehow.
As long as we're alive, we can build as many houses as we need!

Page 10:
Dad: I see.
A machine drawing technical skill diploma......
Well done, Kiyoshi.
Kurusu: I thought I could draw plans for a secret weapon for the army.
Dad: What an honorable choice.
You've graduated top of your class from the Tokyo industrial arts school...... and I heard you had the best grades out of the history of anyone who graduated, right?
Kurusu: Y......Yes. But
all of my friends have been dispatched to the war, and I'm the only one on the mainland facing a desk......
Dad: That's okay.

Page 11:
Dad: Going to the battlefield isn't the one way to serve one's country.
Live, Kiyoshi.

The last 2 of the previous group of 8 still haven't been released. The guys working on it promised me several times it was all almost done and gonna come out at once, and it hasn't. It's been a really long time now. So I'm really kinda annoyed. Especially when I've been putting in the effort to get these done every week.
