And now it's time to wash-up a moment...
File: 37: SENTOH
(TN: "Sentoh" or "Sentou" is Japanese for the public bathhouse)
Caption: Scene: Sunday, AM11:00, Rain Shower
Sign: TAXI: Ride
Takashi: If you're fine with this until the taxi comes, go ahead.
Woman: Ah...I'm sorry.
Takashi: Chrysanthemums...visiting a grave?
Woman: Yes, my husband's...
Takashi: A widow...!!
Takashi: It seemed that her husband died last year after they were newlywed three years.
Woman: Thank you very much. Here...this may be insignificant, but if you see it proper, please use this.
PLEASE TAKE A FRESHLY-DRAWN BATH
Caption: SCENE: PM 1:15: HAPPINESS BATHS
Takashi: It became humid from the rain that fell through the morning, making me sweat. (external) A freshly-drawn bath would be nice.
Old Woman: Welcome.
Old Woman: Now! Come in, come in.
Takashi: Huh!? Th...this is.......!!
Takashi: Well somehow, I had suddenly taken the seat of the watchman. (external): Ah...um, hold on!!
Old Woman: It's fine, it's fine.
Takashi: ......But, there was a reason I had yearned to be a watchman at a public bath when I was a child...
Takashi: ......!! (internal) There was already a female customer......!!
Takashi: IT...WAS HER!! SO PRETTY...
Woman: Want to...wash my back?
Woman: My husband has been dead a year......in here, even if I'm naked in front of a man, I think he would forgive me...
Woman: Pl...please console me...
Takashi: The thing that she had closed within herself for the year overflowed. This liquid was proof of her desire----
Woman: Thank you very much. I was seeking for a great man to wipe away my sadness.
Voice: Okami-sa---n, it's time---
(TN: "Okami" is Japanese for "owner", thereby it's either her name or merely that she was the owner of the sentou)
TN: Continuing the tradition of the last three volumes (though not the next one), we have another shortie to start this one. And this time...well, I guess she wanted to remember her husband for a bit and used kindness as an excuse to screw Takashi. Yeah...makes some sense I guess considering we've seen much weirder.
