What about Shimiko?

You plan to steal his research?

This is a sponsored project.

The sponsor likes Shimika.

To begin with; ether is psychic research.

Let's increase the

concentration we're giving him.

You mean Shimika?

Does he know?

Just his sense of the past...

...has vanished!

Awesome stuff!

Just one week till your wedding.

- I didn't expect it so soon.

I wanted to work a bit more.

You couldn't keep him waiting much longer.

I've trained my successor.

- Thank you.

Please go to the Centre

to settle the accounts.

The management is sloppy

so half a day will do.

Yesterday it was decided to terminate the current

project. Tell them to vacate the Centre this week.

Doesn't Shimika deserve better?

That's no longer your business.

It's been decided by HQ.

Excuse me.

Let me know when you're done.

I'll pick you up.

Thank you for coming.

Is the data ready?

- No... not everything.

I only have half a day.

- That's tough.

I hear your getting

married. Congratulations.

Will you be quitting your position?

Yes, this is my last job so

I hope to finish it smoothly.


HQ will terminate the project

after the accounts are settled.

You must vacate this week.

- Wait a minute.

The D.D.D. Is almost finished.

Allow us a final meeting.

- My job is only to inform you.

I cannot arrange an appointment.

What about the ether?

Give us a subject to show them!

- Impossible.

Hold it! Not so fast!

Your own incompetence

put you into this mess!

This is a fine mess you got us into.

This will ruin my reputation.

- You supplied inferior subjects.

And your silly D.D.D. Research.

- What the f*ck is D.D.D. Anyway?

It's got a lot better

ring to it then your ether.

Ether smacks of alchemy.

- Exactly.

Listen here Shimika.

You do nothing but argue.

Shozin Fukui

Shozin Fukui (福居ショウジン, Fukui Shōjin) is a Japanese film director and screenwriter. He has produced two experimental shorts (Gerorisuto, and Caterpillar) and two full-length films (964 Pinocchio, and Rubber's Lover). These four movies were widely available, having been issued on DVD by Unearthed Films. However, these releases have since gone out of print. He has released four more films since then (Onne, Den-Sen, The Hiding and 『S-94』). These are almost completely unknown outside Japan. 964 Pinocchio and Rubber's Lover are considered important, core films of the Japanese cyberpunk genre.964 Pinocchio is often compared to Shinya Tsukamoto's cyberpunk classic Tetsuo: The Iron Man; Fukui worked on the crew for Tetsuo. Many fans and critics consider Fukui's aesthetic to be sufficiently divergent from Tsukamoto's for his films to stand on their own, even considering the extremely deep similarities. more…
