Prepare yourself for what is in my opinion the greatest chapter of Oumagadoki Doubutsuen! It had everything a good Shounen Action Manga should have. Great stuff and a Sakamata (one of my top favs from this series) on his best!

Uwabami: What’s this about? What did you do, Kasai-san……?
Box: Because she was passed out Uwabami didn’t see Kasai’s gallant moment.Page 17<sfx: *sniff*>
Oogami: Director… this is bad!!
Shiina: No doubt… this guy’s awful!
Oogami: Yeah, you’re right about that, but it’s not what I meant!! // Humans… visitors are scattered throughout the whole aquarium!! / I can smell them from everywhere… // We were too carefree!
Mukanai: That director sure is late… // He said he was going to go to the director’s room, didn’t he~~?
Visitor: There’s some kinda noise coming from above, right?
Someone: This place… // there’s nowhere we can escape to… // We’ll be discovered!!Page 18<sfx: *swoosh*>
Takahiro: It’s the second time I’m infringing your orders / Excuse me, Director… // This does not mean I had doubts about your success… but when I heard one explosion after the other going on…

Takahiro: Everybody aboard.
Hana (in picture): That man Isana and the director… // They might have been similar people tarred with the same brush. // They were both egotistic and selfish…Page 21
Shishido: Fish, you better show up! And then I’m gonna beat you!!
Sakamata: Heh / I might really come someday, so I can devour you…
Hana (in picture): If there is one difference between them, it’s that… / while Isana was trying to recover his human body in a cold manner… // the director tries to progress while being with his friends, having fun… // The day I arrived at the zoo… // the time with Gorikon-kun… // and Shishido-kun… // no doubt about it, breaking the curse means to…Page 22
Demon rabbit: SHOW YOUR LOVE
Hana: He showed it // And we all accepted it.
Hana (in picture): I can’t be completely sure… but it seems like it’s rather about unifying a park than making a big and successful one…<sfx: *turn around*>
Hana: Director! // Let’s try // to continue breaking the curse while having fun, okay?Page 23
Hana: What’s with that face!?
Shiina: That’s a given!
Journal: This fight which started during the Oumagadoki, the time when demons meet,
Takahiro (thinking): Oh, boy… this muscle pain is horrible!
Takahiro: Director, it may be possible I’ll have to infringe your orders a third time…
Chita: Hey Zookeeper, I finally managed to pass 200 km/h, y’know!
Oogami: That’s a lie!
Uwabami: The lies men tell are so unsightly!
Oogami: Takahiro, I fought in two battles more horrible than hell. Now hang in there!
Gorilla Kong: Give it your all!
Shishido: Hey Shiina, maybe I should kill you while you’re like this, huh!?
Uwabami: Stupid cat!!
