††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† thatís not even at the level of giri.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† [And Iím not enough of a kid to be happy just at the sheer amount of chocolate.]

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Give it back.

[016-4]††† Hiou:††††††††††††††††††††† What are you, in elementary school? Teasing the girl you like. . .

††††††††††††††† Annoying guy:†††† [Wha. . .!]

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† [What a painful sight to see.]

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† When I think that the fate of the world rests on the shoulders of cheap adults like

you,

 

[017-1]††† Hiou:††††††††††††††††††††† it makes my chest tight with worry.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† [Whatís going to happen to our future?]

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† [Hmmph.]

[017-4]††† Annoying guy:†††† You probably think. . .

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Iím holding back on you because youíre a kid, right?
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Are you stupid?
††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† [Of course not.]

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Iím not holding back because youíre a kid.

[017-5]††† Annoying guy:†††† Itís because Iím scared of you. . .!

††††††††††††††† Kanae:††††††††††††††††††† Youíre the idiot here!!

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† [How can you say that so confidently!? Is that something youíd say without

shame!?]

††††††††††††††† Hiou:††††††††††††††††††††† . . .

[017-6]††† Annoying guy:†††† If I went all out on you, a kid,

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† your parents would make their backlash

 

[018-3]††† Annoying guy:†††† I. . .

[018-4]††† Annoying guy:†††† hate tactics like that.

[018-5]††† Annoying guy:†††† Even if it means I have to fight a kid,

or talk myself into a hole,

[018-6]††† Annoying guy:†††† I'm not going to hide

my hatred for kids.

Even from a kid from a showbiz family.

[018-7]††† Annoying guy:†††† But you probably wouldnít care for that kind of behavior, would you?

If your parents flapped their mouths to the leaders of the entertainment world about how much they hate me,

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† I wouldn't be able to keep my head above water anymore.

 

[019-1]††† Annoying guy:†††† Thatís why Iím not going to lay a finger on you.

††††††††††††††† Kanae:††††††††††††††††††† . . .

[019-2]††† Kanae:††††††††††††††††††† . . .Whatís with this guy. . .?

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† I thought he was just a regular idiot,

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† but heís a complete moron.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† [Iíd rather he was just a regular idiot. . .]

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† At any rate. . .

[019-3]††† Kanae:††††††††††††††††††† He really shouldnít act like his reasoning is valid.

††††††††††††††† Annoying guy:†††† Hey, brat,

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† make no mistake.

[019-4]††† Annoying guy:†††† People in the showbiz world are only polite to you because of your heritage.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† They donít actually admire you.

[019-5]††† Annoying guy:†††† The reason you can get acting work

[019-6]††† Annoying guy:†††† is because your mother and father are famous actors.

††††††††††††††† Hiou:††††††††††††††††††††† !

 

[020-2]††† Annoying guy:†††† Huh? Whatís that face?

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Did it just hit you?

††††††††††††††† Kanae:††††††††††††††††††† . . .

[020-3]††† Annoying guy:†††† You sure are stupid.

[020-4]††† Annoying guy:†††† This is why I hate kids. They never think things through.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† No matter how talentless they are, second- and third-generation members of

showbiz families always have a sure road ahead of them.
