Soil, Volume 3, Chapter 23 (pp. 165~188)



=Hey, Mr. Yokoi!
=Please! Give us a break!

=What the hell are we supposed to do with this?

=Really. These things keep coming up right and left...
=You too, Mr. Tamura!
=Eat someplace else!

=Uhh! Excuse me, sir!

=These boys were the ones who called in...
=The town is being attacked by aliens, Mr. Detective!

=Not again...
=They're really close by!
=And we've finally discovered their true identity!! You see...

=Take a look, Mr. Yokoi.

=Sneaker prints.
=Multiple ones.

=If you see any aliens wearing sneakers, give 'em the death penalty.

=U-Uhh, Mr. Yokoi...?
=Shouldn't we be thinking about whether this has any connection to the Suzushiro Family disappearance or not...?

=Where's Onoda?
=Huh? She was here just a moment ago...
=Uhh, Mr. Yokoi!
=You're not planning on turning this into a cold case, are you...!?

=What's going to happen to "Soil!?"
=What about Officer Ichinose!?
=Mr. Yokoi!?
=Mr. Yokoi!!

"I've Got You Now"

[tape]Police//Do Not Enter

[sign]Closed//Kamikawa Station




=I had a real close look today.
=That's gotta be a wig, right?

=That's not the issue here!
=The police are trying to hush up this case!!

=They're trying to cover up the existence of the aliens!!
=Then what about the sneaker prints?

=Aliens can wear shoes too!
=I'm sorta having a class here...

=But how are you gonna catch Tokita?
=He's an alien, right? What are you gonna do if he transforms?

=Geez you're slow, Tomiyama!
=We discovered his weakness yesterday, remember!?


=Let's go, Tomiyama!!
=We're going to save the Earth!!
=Stupidity never stops, does it.



=Ohh, that thing?
=I checked it out for you.

=Th-Th-Th-The result...?

=Where'd you find it?
=This "salt?"

=Th-Th-That's a little...
=I-I-It's confidential...


=Are you really a detective?

=You're soooooo cute.

="...Rock salt,"
=Is totally different from the everyday sea salt you can find at the grocery store.

=A lo—ng time ago, land that used to be part of the ocean dried up after rising up from the Earth's crust.
=That salt content crystallized over millions of millions of years to form these minerals...
=So it's basically a type of fossil.

=That's why the composition of the minerals differ depending on where it was excavated.
=And some end up on the kitchen table, while others get sold in stores like mine...

=S-S-S-So, umm...//Wh-Wh-Wh-What about this "salt...?"

=It's incredibly valuable.
=It's not even from this planet.


=In 1998, a meteorite landed in Zag, Morocco.
=They called it the Zag meteorite.

=This meteorite contained crystals of "rock salt."

=An analysis revealed that it was the seawater remnants...
=Of a small planet that existed 4.5 billion years ago...

=...S-S-S-So th-th-th-that m-m-means...
=Th-Th-This i-i-i-is th-th-th-that...

=No doubt about it.
=This thing's got two of the oldest minerals in the solar system, Xenon 129 and Argon 40.

=So... S-S-So, umm...
=C-C-Could large quantities of this ever be found in a residential area somewhere...?

=You're cute, but you're not very bright, are you!
=How could something that crazy ever happen!?

=But small bits of that meteorite have been imported for researchers and collectors.
=I got a couple orders and imported some too.
=My customers are pretty unique, you know.

=D-D-Do you keep records of your sales...!?
=Fine, alright.

=Here you go.

=But gee, you're soooo cute, you know that?

=If you were a stone, you'd be a lapis lazuli.

[line 1]City, Lake
[line 2]City, Soil New Town
[line 3]Town 3rd street 4th






=No way!! No way!! No way!!

=...But tooth extraction was a common custom among the Jomon people...
=With absolutely no form of anesthetic, of course...

=I can only understand their mentality by doing as they did...
=This is a study in action...!


=Now, Tomiyama!!

=Take this—!!!
=Hot hot hot hot hot!!
=What!? What!? What!? What!? What!?

=We know your weakness, alien!!
=It's "hot green tea," isn't it!?

=Hot hot hot hot hot hot!!



=This is Onoda from the Kamikawa Station!
=There's a few questions I'd like to ask you!!





=I've got you now!!
=Fish Alien!!


=The "man with scales...!?"
