It's cold

I'm freezing!

It's empty

Of course, at this hour

It's even weird we're here

Stay awake!

I'm sleepy!

Where are we going?

School

Where are we going?

School

Hey!

Are we getting on?

No

That was closing!

I almost got squashed!

Why are we here?

Isn't that guy cool?

Which one?

Left

Behind?

Well?

I'll bet they're brothers

They don't look alike

Sure they do

They don't even know each other

See? Brothers

Just friends

They get on at Fujiko

You can have the younger one

No, thanks

Is he a foreigner?

Half-Japanese

He'd be scary if he wasn't

He's cool!

He's wearing a pink shirt!

Cool!

You have the kid brother

I don't want him!

It's freezing out there

I don't want to go out

Maybe it's hay-fever season...

It's about that time

Oh, I saw 'Hannibal'

on satellite last night

So did I

I was scared

Isn't he creepy?

Yeah

Don't you think real people are scarier...

than zombies and ghosts?

Yeah

Stalkers and so on...

He looks like someone

Who?

I don't know...

Tom Cruise?

What?

DiCaprio?

You mean him?

Hannibal?

Are you sick?

No, but...

I started thinking about

that movie yesterday

'Hannibal'...

You OK?

Heart-broken, maybe

Huh?

You said he looked like Hannibal

You said he looked like someone

I'm getting all split ends

I should cut it all off

I wouldn't

You like it long?

I like it short

You're not making sense

And what's this guy

talking about, anyway?

'... Princesses-Ponpokopi-And-

Ponpokona-Live-Forever-Jack'

No, don't...

Hana!

What's wrong? Heart-broken?

Soutenu, forward, side...

Hana, get your leg up!

I told you!

Come on! You're still young!

OK, that's it

That's all for the barre

Stretching, five minutes

Five minutes?!

Let's take a break

How were your high-school

entrance exams?

Did you get into a high school?

Yes!

Yeah? Which one?

Fujiko. With Yayoi

Me, too

Akatsuka

Tezuka

Tezuka?

Congratulations!

Come on, start stretching!

So what about ballet?

That is a problem...

I want a life!

Yeah!

It's just about time

All of you!

Alice!

Nagayo!

Hana!

From me to you!

I guess I can't quit now

'Live-Forever-Through-Countless-Ages'

'Like-Fish-In-Water-While-Sea... '

'... And-Cloud-And-Wind-Remain... '

'... Never-Lacking-Food-Or-Shelter... '

'... Like-The-Children-Of-Shuringan-

And-Gurindai-Of-Paipo... '

'... Princesses-Ponpokopi-And-

Ponpokona-Live-Forever-Jack'

The uniform sucks!

Yeah

Your collar's crooked

So's your tie

Get it right!

Perfect!

It sucks

Why are you running?

Wait!

We'll be late!

Oops!

The storytelling club? That way

Back there

Next, please

Wow!

A girl wants to join our club, eh?

A sign of the apocalypse!

I'm 'Ataro The Crazed'

My real name means 'Leaky Swamp'

so I changed it to 'Crazed', eh?

And him...

he's 'Goro The Bang'

His real name is, uh...

'Goro Explosion'?

'Miyamoto'. Masashi Miyamoto

Is that your name, Bang?

What a laugh, eh?

What's your name?

Hana

'Hana'? As in 'flower'?

OK, then...

'Hana The Sweetie'

No, 'Hana The Funky'!

Which one?

'Sweetie'?

You're kinda funky, eh

Let's call you that

Right, everyone?

'We just had a boy' 'Congratulations'

'I'd like Your Holiness

to give him a lucky name'

'lf he's my son, he won't be too bright'

'How about 'Live-Forever'? '

'Why 'Live-Forever'? '

'He may not be too bright... '

'but at least he'll have a long life'

'Would it help if he had

a long name, too? '

There's no balls in it, Bang!

The audience'll fall asleep!

Aw, man!

I tell him and tell him and

he never gets better!

Mr. Miyamoto?

Mr. Miyamoto! Are you OK?!

You smashed your head
