Come in.

You may deal with it in a while and take this to Chang Wu.


I'm so sorry.

It doesn't matter.

What's wrong with Taguchi?

He has been resting for these two days.

It is said that he's got to be married.

So it means he wants to resign?

I don't know.

If it's so we should cheer it up.

How old is he?

Hey, he must be twenty three or twenty four years old.

Twenty three or twenty four.

What is your husband's occupation?

I'm not married yet.

Are you? Not married.

There are only two people in family, my father and I.

Oh, I see. You should get a husband sooner or later.

If you meet a good one it will be wonderful.

Please come in.


What's the matter?

I've just arrived at the Yokohama.

Oh? Did your wife get angry last time?

No, she didn't. And she even thought it interseting.

Really? Drinks make people talk much.

Yes, that's right.

How old is your kid?

What for? 24 years old.

There's a good guy and you may want to consider this.

For what?

Matchmaker, of course!

My wife heard of him and he may be interesting about your kid.

He's got a good background and is staying in the university for the practice.

He's about 29 years old.

Yes, sure he is. So...what do you think of this?

Hey, I'm talking to you!

Have any matchmakes come here?

No, they hasn't. We haven't thought about this.

Have you?

She doesn't have that intention either. She's still a kid and has no sense of women.

You're wrong. She has the sense and surely has.

Has she?

Yes, she has. So just try and that guy is really good.

Oh? Horie has just called that he the meet arranged at Classmate's Meeting.


Tonight, at Fang Song. He will also call you.

He has more energy since he was remarried.

Maybe he has been taking the Viagra.


Since we've talked of the kid, please think it over.

Hey, how about tonight? Is that OK?

No, thers wil be the baseball game between Da Yang and Bai Shen tonight.

I come here just for this.

You may watch the game next time.

No, this is the most important night. I've got no spare time for you guys.

Please, go, let's go.

No, no, sorry I can't.

You can! Let's go.

No, no, not today.

It is Number 4 Kuwata who starts the attack at the fourth round of the second half.

It is Number 4, Kuwata.

It is Number 4, Kuwata.

A short ball first.

This is the second time.

Kuwata from Sang Yuan.

Waving his stick with confidence.

The cather from Bai Shen is Gu Chuan.

The first ball is straight and fast.

Kuwata didn't strike and is waiting for the good chance now.


...the second one is a little left...sorry to keep you waiting.

Now there's a good ball and a bad one.

Kuwata who is waving the stick seems to be waiting for the third.

The third, a little higher.

Ah, is that all?

Where did you see Guan Jing?

In the trolley-bus. There's a strange man...

...who is collecting the waste newspaper.

He seemed familiar with me and I finally remembered he was Hyoutan.

Hyoutan was not young any more.

I thought he had been dead.

It is difficult for him to pass away, and it won't be that easy.

Even someone wants to kill him and he won't die.

Are you still angry with him?

His chinese language has been taunted by that guy.

What he has done is beyond of me too far, but past just passed.

So we should go for him.

If he comes, I will not appear.

Please don't do that, this Classmate's Meeting is held especially for him.

If you don't come it will be boring. Come on and join in us.

Yes, come on.

No, no.

Which side will win?

They're still in tie. 0:0, this is warm.


Is this a empty bottle? Yes.
