Title: Birdmen // flight006 CATCH FIRE
Text: Someone is calling out to their wings.
Artist: Tanabe Yellow(2)
Vertical text: Thanks to the special training, the three of them gradually learned how to use their wings. On the hand, Karasuma...
Box: Special flight training, day 3
Rei: Alright, catch this!
Tsubame: Sorry, I missed!
Kamoda: I'll get it!(3)
Kamoda: Alright, I have...
Rei: Oh, my...
Rei: It's still hard to handle the fine motor skills of our wings. (We'll never get to an actual rally.)
Tsubame: Kamo-chan, you alright?
Kamoda: I, // caught it before it hit the water!!
Tsubame: Then that's a new record, not? // If we count the distance before my miss too.
Rei: You're so nice, Tsubame.
Kamoda: Alright, your turn to catch it!
Tsubame: Oops! I missed again!
Box: Karasuma Eishi, current flight record // 25m.(4)
Eishi: I should be fine... the distance I can fly increases every day. // If I keep that up, I should eventually be able to fly anywhere...
Rei: (Want to take a break?)
Kamoda: (At least let me get on shore first.)
Eishi: Indeed, anywhere...
Kamoda: Ah, I'm so thirty.
Kamoda: You'll be fine, Ei-chan. // You'll learn how to fly soon enough.(5)
Kamoda: Because we all have wings after all!!
Eishi: Shut up!! // You idiot!!!
Kamoda: (What!? // I'm not an idiot!!)
Eishi: Why... Is the gap between our ability of motion really this large... // Either way, normal human beings wouldn't be able to fly at all. So if I put it like that, my 25m record isn't that bad...
Tsubame: Don't act so gloomy, Karasuma. // Want me to buy you some juice later?
Rei: Karasuma-kun, maybe you know this already, // but I suspect there's something wrong with your flight form. // I'll send you the video I just shot just now to your phone. // If you like, please use it for reference.(6)
Eishi: Say something!!!
Takayama: ......... // There's always extraordinary strength resulting from an adrenaline rush in case of an emergency ...(7)
Eishi: You're saying I'll be able to fly in case of need?
Eishi: You're wrong. A adrenaline rush won't affect someone without any abilities . // It will only change what can be expected of any skill or potential you already have.
Eishi: It's essential to have a grasp of your abilities. // Only an idiot would expect a miracle without doing anything. // I'm pressed for time, so I need to think of a plan. // I can't accept it just like this.
Takayama: Karasuma, // you still think you can't fly?(8)
Eishi: Shut up...
Kamoda: Ah! // Ei-chan, that's amazing. // You discovered a new way to use your wings.
Rei: I guess he's more depressed than we thought.
Kamoda: Nah, he's fine.
Kamoda: Ei-chan may be the negative type, but he's mentally really strong. // He just really hates to lose.
Kamoda: If he gets serious, he's capable of anything. // He always drives himself into a corner like he's a total M!
Eishi: Damn, look at me... for now I'd better watch the video Sagisawa send me. // Maybe I'll find a solution... // Damn! Who's that loser! Is that me!!?[T/N: M = Masochist = a person who finds pleasure in one's own pain or humiliation](9)
Eishi: Wha... // EH!?
Eishi: Hey, you!! // Takayama!!(10)
Eishi: What are you doing, // are you going...
Eishi: to let go? // I knew it!!
Rei: Takayama-kun is just like Sparta...
Eishi: Idiot! // Smart phone, // smart phone, // not waterproof, // wings, // fly...(11)
Kamoda: (A somersault!)
Rei: Well... // I guess you just set yourself a new record.
Kamoda: That's right. You're great! // Ei-chan, you already mastered the somersault, did you?
Eishi: Yes, I did. // I know exactly how my wings work!
Eishi: Look at my newly achieved... // skill!
Eishi: Waterproof smart phone case!!! (Viva wearable computing!)
Kamoda: Whatever, just fly.
Takayama: You look just fine...
Eishi: Wha... // EH!?
Tsubame: This is great, we are all able to fly now!
Tsubame: (Just a bit more practice and we'll be able to fly even further.)
Eishi: Is this a Sand dumpling?
Kamoda: Don't be rude.
Eishi: Kamoda, I'm done for... everything looks grey...
Kamoda: Today I added small fry to the rice! (And it's smaller, as you requested.)(14)
Tsubame: (How far is it to Odaiba?)
Rei: (Let me look that up.)
Eishi: He's still looking at the sky.
Eishi: He said he can "sense" us. // But I still can't tell who he is.
Eishi: I don't think he's lying or trying to trap us. (If you think about it, that's actually pretty strange.) // But I still can't suppress this unexplainable sense of discomfort.
Takayama: There’s ALSO the black out----- // You’ll have to be prepared...
Eishi: For instance, it doesn't really seem to bother him he has to fight off monsters. // Yet if we aren't careful, we'll probably die... // And then, he seems to value saving human lives...?
Eishi: No, that's not it... // From his story, I understand that responding to the wishes of your wings is the key to living with them. // That's right, it also feels pretty eerie that he is always personifying his wings while speaking of them.
Eishi: What on earth did he mean with "to live with these wings", what on earth are the "wishes of your wings"...?(16)
Kamoda: What's this!?
Tsubame: Eh, // do you also hear that voice!?
Eishi: Takayama! // Is this the "voice" you were talking about!?
Rei: Then, // someone's life is in danger!?
Eishi: Hey, Taka...
Eishi: That bastard!!
Rei: Let's follow!(17)
Kamoda: Oh? // It's pretty close.
Tsubame: The voice is gone!
Eishi: No, no, no...(18)
Eishi: That... // isn't a human, right...
Box: Overall length of about 15m
Eishi: That's a whale, right? RIGHT!? // Aren't we supposed to hear the "voices" of humans only!? // No one told me about this!!?
Tsubame: (I guess he strayed into the shallows.)
Eishi: Why is this happening!? // Can we possibly here the last moments of all living things!? // You can't be serious about that!!
Takayama: The voices... of humans are loud... // so you don't hear the voices of other beings unless you're really close. If you already hear them, it'll only last a few seconds or so.
Takayama: Unless you transform, you usually won't hear them at all.
Rei: Because animals aren't aware of their death until the very last moment, right?
Tsubame: Hey, did this whale die? (It's not moving.)
Takayama: No, it's still alive.
Tsubame: Then, let's take it back to the open sea!
Eishi: Why am I doing this...?
Eishi: I'm being carried away... // Or just say I'm adrift, whatever......
Eishi: And because this thing is huge, // we naturally have to move stealthily, not to attract any attention... // it a really feels like we're doing something bad...
Eishi: I never had any intention to save humans... // This isn't a human though. // I have my hands full with myself already. // It would've been better to use this time to practice our flying, right? (Especially me.) (21)
Eishi: All in all, the fact that this whale strayed into this kind of place means at least one of its organs is damaged. // So whatever we try, we won't be able to save it anyway.
Eishi: Right... we're just moving a big lump of whale meat that's bound to die...? // Yikes, why am I imagining that!
Eishi: But that voice...
Eishi: Voice... // It weren't really words, it was more like thoughts... or wishes... // If those really belonged to this whale-----
Eishi: I feel like // even I would come to want to help it // some way or another...(22)
Tsubame: Ah, // it moved!
Tsubame: I wonder if he'll be able to find his way home...
Takayama: That whale's time has come. He'll die soon.
Takayama: But, if he has to die, I thinks it's better if he does at the bottom of the deep ocean.(23)
Tsubame: I see...
Rei: That's too bad...
Rei: But they say it's bad omen to have a whale wash up on shore. // So we may just have averted some trouble?
Kamoda: How can we ever become heroes with such unclear...
Eishi: Wait, Kamoda... // You want to be a hero?
Kamoda: You don't?
Eishi: Wha... // Me!?
Eishi: No, I...(24)
Tsubame: that's hurts!!(25)
Eishi: Wha... // What's going on!?
Eishi: Wait for us, // what is this... // It's nothing like before...
Eishi: Fire... // Over there!?(27)
Eishi: Damn // it......
Eishi: What is this pain... // Explain it already, Takayamaaa...!!(28)
Rei: Let's follow them!
Takayama: Over here.(30-31)
Takayama: The harbor is close. A relief team will be here soon.
Takayama: There are still people inside. // Give me a hand.(33)
Takayama: This is an emergency------
Eishi: Aah... // I don't feel the heat anymore...
Takayama: I knew you'd be the first person to fly after me.
Box: The next day, // the story about a boat catching fire at Tokyo Bay became big news in its own way.(35)
Box: It wasn't mentioned in the summaries in the major Newspapers or on TV, // but a strange witness statement of the survivors started circulating on the internet.
Eishi: Most of the crew were Philippine and they said that just before they lost consciousness, // they saw the devil standing in the flames and prepared themselves for the end.
Eishi: I'm not a Christian like them, // but I guess I also saw a non-human creature in those flames back then.
Eishi: If that's the case, then what on earth am I?
Vertical text: After some frantic efforts, they obtained a non-human, devilish power!? Next time, a new conflict will drive Karasuma into a corner...!
