Hana Yori Dango Volume 9 Chapter 5
[117-3]Tsukushi:Kin-san, it’s okay!
Kin-san:No, I was utterly ignorant that he was a friend of yours going abroad tomorrow—
[118-1]Kin-san:Honestly! I get so fired up without knowing. . .
I thought he was just playing a prank with that ridiculous order—
[118-2]Tsukushi:I really don’t care anymore!
That’s right. If I look at it from a working-class guy like Kin-san’s point of view
one can’t help but think the super-rich Doumyouji was acting strangely.
[118-3]Tsukushi:I-I don’t care where that guy goes.
Maybe going abroad will cure his idiocy a little—
[118-4]Kin-san:Didn’t he say “I’ll never come home”?
I’ve done something inexcusable.
[119-2]Tsukushi:I-It’s really fine!
SFX: SWIFT MOVEMENT!
Tsukushi:When I think of all the awful things he’s done, knowing he’s leaving makes me feel relieved!
[119-4]Kin-san:. . .He’s Doumyouji Tsukasa, isn’t he?
Tsukushi:Eh? How did you know?
[120-2]Kin-san:Ah, everyone knows that super-rich guy!
Well, let’s g’ome, shall we!? (go home)
[120-3]Kin-san:Oh, yeah! What’s your name?
I still don’t know it.
[120-4]Tsukushi:Ah, it’s true!
I’m Makino Tsukushi, the weed Tsukushi!! What about you, Kin-san?
[121-1]Tsukushi:I heard the manager call you “Amakusa-san.”
[121-2]Kin-san: That’s true, but you just call me whatever you like.
Kin-san or Gin-san or whatever.
[121-3]Kin-san:See ya! I’m really sorry.
Take care on your way home!
[121-5]Tsukushi:No one could say anything bad
about someone as good a person as Kin-san.
[122-1]Tsukushi:I sort of regret not having said goodbye properly, but. . .
it was an appropriate closing scene for us. . .
[122-2]Susumu:Eeeeh? Thai rice again?
Mama:It can’t be helped! Domestic rice is expensive, so I couldn’t get it! [It doesn’t
matter, just eat!]
Susumu:It would be nice to have some meat once in a while!
Papa:[We mustn’t be extravagant.]
Tsukushi:Poor Susumu. . .he’s a growing boy, after all.
[123-2]Mama:What’s wrong? Are you okay!?
[123-3]Papa:T. . .Take this.
SFX: QUIVER QUIVER
Mama:. . .What is it?
Papa:I sold my blood at an undisclosed located today.
[123-4]Mama:Pa. . .
SFX: WELL UP
Tsukushi:Papa. . .!!!
[124-2]Tsukushi:Honestly! What family in this world could live off of sold blood!?
Background:Papa’s I tricked you dance
Susumu:Pop! Hurry up and work so I can eat some meat!
Mama:Wha? 1000 yen!? What can I do with this!??
[124-3]SFX: GYAAA GYAAA GYAAA
[124-4]SFX: GYAAA GYAAA GYAAA
[124-5]F4:You remember when we played at being poor?
SFX: THUD THUD THUD (Musical bass)
F4:We wore torn-up clothes on purpose!
[125-1]Akira:And we ate sardines. [Gyahaha]
Kazuya:I eat those now.
[125-2]Soujirou:Huh? Why are you here?
Kazuya:Eeeh? Aren’t I member of the F4?
[125-3]Soujirou:. . .Did you tell him that?
Akira:Don’t know anything about it.
Kazuya:Eeeeh~~~? No waaay!
[125-4]Soujirou:. . .Hey, Tsukasa.
Quit making that sour face and come over here.
Akira:We arranged this get-together for your benefit.
[126-1]Soujirou:Makino slapped him today so he’s holding a grudge.
Akira:And she didn’t even show up to this last party.
[126-2]Kazuya:It’s not like that for Tsukushi-chan.
Her dad got fired because his company went through restructuring.
Akira:Makino is really poor!
Rui:Heeh. . .
Kazuya:She’s having a really hard time. I feel so sorry for her.
[126-4]Doumyouji:Hmmph. Her old man worked at a zoo, huh?
F4 + Kazuya:[Haah?]
[127-1]Banner:Squirrels and Tigers [This is not a cat.]
(Restructuring: “Risutora.” Squirrels and Tigers: “Risu to Tora.”)
[127-2]Rui:. . .It might be nice with him gone for two years.
Souijrou:I was thinking the same thing.
[127-3]Doumyouji:It’s not just two years!
I’m never coming back!
Akira:You’ll be back in about a month.
[128-1]Doumyouji:I’ll kill you!
All of you!
[128-5]Tsukushi:The next day
Tearful voices filled the hallway.
[128-6]Students:[Whine] I can’t believe Doumyouji-san is going.
An afternoon flight. . .
He may already be gone. [Waah. . .]
[128-7]Voice:You’re not going to see him off?
[129-1]Sakurako:You’re not going to see him for two years.
[129-2]Tsukushi:Her eyes are all red. . .she’s been crying.
—I’m not going.
loved Doumyouji-san, Makino-senpai!
[129-4]Tsukushi:Why would I—
Sakurako:You always said you loved Hanazawa-san—
[130-1]Sakurako:But I think
that you really loveDoumyouji-san. . .
[130-3]Sakurako:You’re the only one that can stop him!
[130-4]Sakurako:Whyy. . .?
[131-1]Tsukushi:Stop him. . .?
Me. . .?
[131-2]Tsukushi:The thought never occurred to me.
I was just. . .
I was just a little lonely—
[131-3]F4:Take care, Tsukasa.
F4:You’ll speak English fluently the next time we see you, huh?
[132-1]Tsubaki:This will be the first time Tsukasa will be parted from you guys, won’t it?
Soujirou:Yeah, I guess that’s true.
[132-2]Soujirou:It’ll be lonely to see you go, Nee-chan.
You’re going back to L.A. after you drop Tsukasa off, right?
Tsubaki:Yes. . .I’m going to hang out a bit first, though.
Did you say goodbye to Tsukushi-chan?
[132-4]F4:[Nee-chan, that’s taboo!]
[132-5]Doumyouji:Shut up! I don’t care about that ugly girl!
[133-1]Tsubaki:It’s about time.
Tsukasa, let’s go.
Thanks for coming to see us off.
[133-2]Rui:Tsukasa, come here a minute.
[133-3]Doumyouji:. . .What is it?
Rui:Well. . .
[134-1]Tsukushi:When I think about it, we’ve been through a lot.
When I first entered this school, I just watched the F4 in shock from far away.
[134-2]Tsukushi:~Why don’t those people wear uniforms?
Student:~Don’t, Makino-san! Look away!
[134-3]Tsukushi:They were a group of bishounen, shining conspicuously like models.
[134-4]Tsukushi:My classmate Makiko-chan fell down the stairs
and scored a direct hit on Doumyouji. . .
[135-2]Tsukushi:Oh man, his face back then—
[Ku ku ku]
Just remembering makes me laugh!
[135-3]Tsukushi:[Sigh. . .]
[135-4]Tsukushi:Back then I was scared to even breathe.
I could never imagine we’d end up like this.
[136-1]Tsukushi:I was just a coward.
My heart screamed that I should change.
[136-2]Tsukushi:The one who changed me
[136-3]Tsukushi:was probably him.
SFX: KIIIIN (Revving up)
Pilot:We will be taking off shortly.
[137-2]Tsubaki:What are you spacing out about? We’re taking off!
[137-4]Rui:~Nothing happened that night with Makino.
~I couldn’t sleep with her.
Makino really loves you, Tsukasa.
I didn’t tell you as payback for the stuffed animal.
[138-2]Doumyouji:. . .Rui. . .
He really did it this time.
[138-4]Doumyouji:Stop! I’m not going to New York!
Doumyouji:Lemme off! Stop the plaaaane!
[139-1]Stewardess:Sir, that’s dangerous!! Please sit down!
Doumyouji:Shut up, ugly! I’m Doumyouji Tsukasa!
Stop this plane!
[139-2]Tsubaki:Tsukasa!!? Be quiet and calm down!
Doumyouji:I have to hit Rui just once!
Flight Attendants: WAAAAAH!
[139-3]Tsubaki:Get a rope and tie him up!
Flight Attendant:A-a rope!? But—
Tsubaki:He’s a wild animal! Don’t think of him as human! Hurry!
[140-1]Doumyouji:You think you can do that to me!?
Doumyouji:I’ll demolish this whole airline. . .
[140-3]Tsubaki:. . .Honestly!
He’s such a pain in the. . .
[141-1]Tsukushi:Ah. . .
I wonder if that’s the plane.
[141-2]Tsukushi:Doumyouji. . .
