Short Program, Volume 3, Chapter 32, (pp. 195~210)

The Square Ocean

=No TV,
=No telephones.

=No deadlines.

=No Shogakukan Manga Award celebration party.

=High up in the mountains...


=It's nice weather, Kenta—!//Why don't you come on out!

=Easy for you to say,//I can't walk without my crutch!

=Remember what mister Matsuno said?//Your leg's already healed.
=Once you feel like walking again, you'll—

=You can't trust a crummy old doctor like that.//Nobody's even sure whether he has a medical license!

=It hurts when I stand up.//And besides, where do you expect me to go!?
=There's nothing but snow around here!

=I hate the mountains!

=I guess you want to force me to walk and help you out with your work, but—//You're not fooling me!

=I didn't ask to get injured, you know!

=Kenta's father forced Kenta to climb up a tree, and Kenta injured his leg when he slipped and fell off.

=But one day—




=Go get it!//Rokubei!


=Man, this is a nippy planet.


=Phew—//You're a lifesaver!
=Thanks a lot, dude.

=Allow me to introduce myself, I'm Colonel Doremi from Planet Pampers.//Suddenly lost control of my ship, you see...
=Quite a scare, really!

=Why,//Thank you.

=Gonna borrow one of these.



=There! All better.

=—Now then,//In return for saving me, I shall grant you one wish.
[bubble]Standard practice

=But it's against the rules to wish for more wishes.
=Anything I want?

=Alien no lie!

=Okay! Then I wanna see the ocean!

=Piece o' cake.

=Make a boat out of that branch and float it down the river out back.//That screen will display the view from the boat.

=All rivers lead to the ocean.//You'll be able to see the sprawling ocean even from these mountains!

=Thanks, Doraemon.
=Easy there.

=This is our little secret, okay?//That device will stop working if you tell anyone else.




=It's working!




=Hey early bird!//It's not spring yet, stupid—!

=You're still awake, Kenta—?//Hurry up and go to bed!




=What's wrong, Kenta?

=That device will stop working if you tell anyone else.

=...Nothing,//Good night.
=Right,//Good night.













=This is a story I wrote before my debut.

=I wrote this version purely out of nostalgia, trying to remember as much as I could from that manuscript I lost.


=Happy 30th anniversary, Shounen Sunday.//—I've taken this opportunity to reflect upon my own past, but...


=—Well, go easy on me.
