What about your severance pay?

Have they paid it all?

Not yet, no.

Set up a separate bank account for it.

That way, any irregular deposits

won't stand out.

-Unemployment insurance?

-l'm just applying for it now.

Just make sure you submit

all the paperwork on time.

One day late and they'll disqualify you.

You're really something else!


Now Kobayashi's totally lost

all authority over us.


lt's just like a revolution. Revolution!

What's wrong?

You're the one who started it all.


Welcome home.


l'm making donuts.

Why don't you come down?

l'm fine!

Don't you want to eat donuts?

No, thanks!

Thanks for the food.


Hey, Kenji.

Here, your monthly lunch money.

Put it in your satchel.

lt's due tomorrow, right?

Do you want a donut?

Let's look at a breakdown

of China's current energy sources.

Well, China is in fact the largest

producer of coal in the world...

Do you not want a donut? 1 990, they depended on coal

for 76% of their energy,

and on oil for 17%.

But by 2002, their coal dependency

was reduced to 65%,

and their oil dependency

rose to 24%...

You were having a nightmare.


This is for a month of lessons.

Thank you.

Did you come alone?

They said, as l'm in Year 7 now,

l can come by myself.

Okay, we'll start next week.


Do you have a piano at home?

Yes, a small one.

Come over here.

Can you play anything?

Have a try.

Keep going.

l'm home.

Welcome back.

Oh, you're home, Takashi.

That's rare.

-l don't have work today.

-l see.

-Do you want to shower first?

-No, l'll eat now.

Kenji, it's dinner time ! Come on !

Takashi, your book.

l think l'll have a beer. l'll get it.

Tastes good.

Let's eat.

lt's no good.

l'm starting to get home
