It's on.

- Who are you?

- Who are you?

What is that?

You look like a panda with that eye.

Well, you have a retro-style TV

as a head.


What the hell are we doing here?

I don't know.

I don't remember anything at all.

Aren't you cold?

I want some clothes.


I'm hungry too.


Criminals have appeared.

Criminals have appeared.

The police will arrive in one minute.

Do not interfere with the suspects.

- We need a car.

- Leave it to me.


This is the police.

Slow that vehicle down.

Ah! They're here, Pandy! Speed up!

I'll cause a distraction!

We're so powerful!

We must surely have been assassins

before our memories were erased!

- Retro, look.

- What, Pandy?

That's the moon, I think.

It's got a huge bite taken out of it.

It's good to be violent to people.

In order to protect the public peace,

we charge you with trespassing,

theft, violence, assault,

possession of illegal

firearmsand much more.

Therefore you will be imprisoned in DL,

the prison on the surface of the moon.

Imprisoned in DL,

the prison on the surface of the moon.

Hey! What are you doing?

There once was a field

with one tall tree.

There were many leaves on that tree.

A lot of caterpillars

made their meals there.

In the morning, to the sun...

In the evening, to the moon...

The tree was so tall,

it seemed to reach those heights.

"I always looked at that,

"the working ants said

to the caterpillars."

"Hey, you!

"If you're always looking up,

won't your necks get tired?

"That's why your bodies are

so stretched out,

because you're always looking up."

Whoa! What is this?

I can't move!

I can't move! Aah!

Let me out, a**holes!

Does it really matter?

It sucks!

Let me gol

Are you listening?

Hey, let me outl

It's time to eat!

Wow. There are so many in here.

- Hey! Come back!

- You too!


What is this place?

Even if you don't want to eat, you should.

You won't get any more after this.

Your TV is nice.

So is your dick!

It's time to shitl

- Sh*t?

- Sh*t.

I really don't want to right now.

- It'll come out anyway.

- Huh?

This music won't make it come out.

- It'll come out.

- It won't.

- It'll come out.

- It won't come out!

Something is sucking...

It's sucking it out!


What a weird feeling.

It was gross, but it felt good.

Will you let me put it in too?


Hey! Prisoner number 931!

- 3-1!


You! You shat too much!

Look! Your tube is all backed up!

It really stinks!

Your head is useless!

Your personality is disgusting!

I sentence you to death!



You're all just damaged clones!

You aren't worth as much as sh*t!

Sh*t! Understand?

Now slide out like sh*t!

Sh*t! A**holes!

Sh*t, I'm done.

It's best not to piss off

Three-Six and Three-Seven.

Their heads and bodies

are built differently from ours.

Don't misunderstand anything they say.

We're all genetic mistakes,

and they treat us like guinea pigs.

I see. I'm a clone.

There's nobody here who isn't a clone.

It's okay.

If we die today, tomorrow there will bean

other batch of clones just like us.

It's okay to die anytime.

Are you okay?

Heh! I'm a doctor!

I made so many mistakes during

surgery that lots of people died,

so they sent me here.

How about you?

Me? I lost my memory,

so I have no idea.

I woke up naked outside on a street.

You can't remember anything at all?

Well, I do remember one thing.

It's probably from a child's book.

It's a story about caterpillars

looking up at tree leaves.

Then some working ants

said to the caterpillars:

"Hey, you! If you're always looking up,

won't your necks get tired?"
