The Day It Rained
I repeat, / there has been a warning forecast of falling dolls in the areas of Yoshino City, North Urawa City and South Oomiya City between the hours of 2pm and 6pm. // Please take note that it is prohibited to go outside until 3pm tomorrow, after everything has been cleaned up, unless you have permission. / Anyone with young children should be extra careful…
Mom: Ugh. // It’s horrible that we can’t go outside // when we all have a day off for once.
Mom: It’s going to take so long to clean up! // How awful.
Dad: Here / Tama. // Eat.
Mom: Ohhh nooo… // We’re out of soy sauce.
Mom: What should we do about lunch? / Oh my my…
Yuki: Why don’t we just eat cup noodles? / Why don’t you calm down a bit, mom.
Mom: I can’t keep still. / And knowing that I can’t go outside frustrates me.
Three years ago, mysterious UFO appeared above Uzbekistan.
Looking down on us in disdain as we feared them, // they shower our land with dolls (unconfirmed as to what they really are) that are complete replications of us in every country / and has been continuing to move across the globe.
We still have know nothing about how the replications were created or what they are doing // and we have no idea // of why they are showering them on to our land.
We’ve prepared for any attacks or interaction with them // and ever since last year, the dolls have been collected by each country in order to research the data.
And today, the dolls will rain on my city.
Yuki: You went outside, Tama? // You’re going to get shot! / Wha…!
Yuki: Tama!! // This is bad! // What did you bring with you!?
Yuki: She’s pretty… // [Haha…] I would be upset if someone did this with one of my dolls… // Sorry…
What does your voice sound like?
Mom: Yuki! / Can you open this bottle? [Your dad can’t open it!]
Yukie: Yeah // sure.
The clean-up had ended by then.
Mom: If you find a doll, you let the military know without touching it, okay?
Yuki: Yeah. // Oh, pass the butter.
Mom: You have your lunch?
As a first-world country, Japan is responsible for protecting the rest of Asia in a time of crisis. / There will be a legislative bill passed, in which there will be limitations on public freedom as a temporary precaution as we try to maintain stability and peace among the population. / We believe the public will understand and cooperate by all means necessary.
A lot of regulations were decided using the aliens as a scapegoat / and we became more like the dolls in society. // We had no idea what was going to happen after all the ethnicities were copied into dolls / and we moved on to the next century without much change or improvement.
But // you’re somewhere in this city // and that motivates me to keep on living.
Yuki: Hah // I’m a fool.
