Memory Off: Part 1


=The old year passes, and the new year begins...


[book title]The Monkey's Guide to Getting into College

Memory Off: Part 1



=Happy New Year!
=Oh, Mrs. Shimizu.//Making your new year's visit to the shrine already?
=Oh my,//It's chilly tonight, isn't it.
=Hey, Mr. Tanaka.//Happy New Year to you too.


=Look,//Toshino-san's place still has their light on.
=Toshino-san's place

=I thought they went on a game show//And won a free family vacation to Hawaii over the holidays.
=—Yes,//Hajime-chan's alone doing some extra studying.

=Ohh—//I didn't know Hajime-chan was applying for college!

=He seemed pretty carefree, though.
=Hah-hah,//He always leaves things to the last minute.

=Yes, during preschool, he got locked inside the classroom while he was getting ready to go home,//And in elementary school, he got left behind on the roof and stayed the night.
=He even missed a school field trip because he was taking a morning shower.

=Hey hey,//You make it sound like he's just a...
=Happy New Year!

=Warmest thoughts and best wishes for a wonderful holiday!


=—But,//Hajime-chan really gets going once he's in the hole, doesn't he.
=Oh, absolutely!
=He's got great comeback skills.//Wakanohana can retire with a clear conscience.
[note]Wakanohana; Famous sumo champion.

=Looks like the sumo industry is all set for the 21st century.
=What the heck?

[bag]Rental Videos

=A quick look at those anime videos wouldn't—


=—No.//Just one last push.
=2000 A.D.—

=The Environmental Crisis,
=The Population Crisis,
=The Food Crisis,

=The Educational Crisis,
=Time Crisis 2...
=Even with all these crises at hand,

=Mankind is about to enter the 21st century...

=—Or something.





=A visitor?
=This late...?
=Who is it?

=Who is it?


=Who am I?
=Where am I?
=Who are you?


=Who is it?

=Hey,//What's this?

=Look, I'm gonna have to call the police,

=If you don't—


=Would you like some tea...?


=Who am I!?

=I really don't remember seeing you before,//It's probably the first time we've every met.

=Then why am I here?
=You're the one that rang the doorbell!

=I was just standing in front of the door to this house.

=What about before?
=I don't know!//I have no recollection of anything before that!

=What about that gun?

=Is it real?

=—It//Looks real...

=Maybe if I shoot it...
=Don't point it over here!

=Let's just calm down and think for a sec.

=You really can't remember//Your name, your age, or where you came from?
=That's what I've been telling you this whole time.

=Oh yeah, Check the stuff you're wearing.//You might have an ID card or something in your coat pocket.

=Oh,//Good idea.


=My name's not written on that.

=...You're right.
=I found a wallet, but...//There's nothing in it besides money.

=—And,//A handkerchief and a pack of tissues.
=Girls usually carry around a cell phone or a card or something, don't they?

=What about this?

=A stungun... I guess?

=What do you use it for?
=Dunno...//Depends on the person.

=No name on the coat...

=Hey hey.

=There might be a name written on my underwear—
=Kids in elementary school usually—

=—I mean,//You don't look like you're in elementary school...

=Why do I have a knife hanging here—?

=Hey,//There's nothing written on the back?

=...Nothing's written there.
=Ohh—//That equation I just memorized got completely...

=Ohh—//What should I do?
=What should I do...

=Well, anyways. It's a bit late tonight.//We can go talk to the police tomorrow.

=The police don't take New Year's Day off.

=No, I mean...

=A gun,//A knife, and...
=A stungun...

=Isn't this a bit weird?
=No kidding.

=Does this mean I'm...
=Fuj*ko Mine?
[note]Fujiko Mine; Female thief from Lupin the 3rd.
=Probably not.

=I'm//...Kinda scared.

=Don't worry.//This thing looks totally fake—
=Never seen a real one though...


=Did you remember something?

=You,//Got this problem wrong.

=Oh,//And this one.
=And this one.

=Alright,//That's enough!
=It's late tonight, okay?

=You can use my sister's bed.//The door locks from the inside, so you don't have to worry.
=Okay,//Good night.

[note]Imoto; Japanese word for "younger sister."


=I'm starting to feel woozy...
=What the heck is going on so early in the year!?//...Gosh.

=A thousand years for the crane, tens of thousands for the tortoise.//3 years for peaches and chestnuts. 8 years for the persimmon.
=40 years for Shounen Sunday.

=You've learned too much,//Hajime Toshino.

=About what?

=You can watch the New Year's sunrise from the great beyond.

=No way.



=So white...

=Pure whiteness,
=Everywhere I look...

=So this is the great beyond, huh.

=This is real heaven for a manga artist.

We're paying you by the page, thief—!
=So quiet...
=I hear nothing.




=Are you okay?
=Sounded like a pretty bad nightmare.

=A cold?

=Looks like it.

=Hey,//What time is it?

=It's twelve o'clock. Time for the daytime news.

=I tried making some stew with the stuff in the refrigerator.
=Why,//Thank you.

=—First, here's an update on last night's snowstorm.

=—So?//You remember anything?
The Kanto region has already been—

=Oh yeah,//We have to go the police.

=It's okay. I can go by myself later.

=No way. //No one's going to believe a story like that.

=You believed me,//Didn't you?

=Well,//Either way, it's a snowstorm out.//No transportation.
=No point in getting hasty.

=You wouldn't want to be left alone in this condition, right?

=And it looks like your family isn't coming back till the 3rd.
=—Yes,//They went on a game show and won a free trip to Hawaii...
[calendar title]January: Toshino Family Weekly Schedule
[top row]Father//Mother//Hajime//Sister

=Oh yeah,//Where's your medicine cabinet?

=Let's see...

=Are you okay?

=I'm totally fine, but...
=Lend me your shoulder.

=Sounds like,//Something's going on in Yomogi Park.

=You really don't know anything about me?

=I'm not lying.


=You really don't know, huh.

=Here,//Watch the stairs.

=—Next up is,//Our follow-up on the murder that occurred in Yomogi Park late last night.

=The victim died on the scene after being shot in the temple—//The police believe this was the work of a professional killer,
=And are searching for witnesses in the surrounding area.

=We'll be bringing you the New Years news from around the country. Right after the break.
