"The owner vanished like steam.?

"No hot baths for a while."

Still good for her.

This morning's temperature

is lower than yesterday

but higher than average around the country...

Eat or watch.

A light jacket should be sufficient.

The climate this week will remain the same.

Eat. You'll be late.

It tastes weird.


I told you the other day.

Then don't eat.

Which? Eat or don't eat?

Then eat.


Don't go yet.

Don't make me be alone.

My stomach hurts.

My head also hurts.

Stop by at the meat shop before you come home.

Get 4 croquettes for dinner.


It smells like you.

Don't complain.

Now go on.


Wanna ride?

With your own mom? How embarrassing.

Sorry I embarrass you.

Good morning.

Good morning.

Wow. You studied hard.

I didn't do anything.

I feel so lazy. I can't go today.

But he said I have to.

Also integrated studies.

I forgot it at home.

You didn't do it.

I should have brought it anyway.


I guess it makes a difference

if I'd brought it.

That's good. Looks tasty.

Nice shadow.

Time's up. Put your things away.

Leave your drawings on the table.

Nice. It looks real.

Teach us how to draw.

She's good.

- I'll use yellow.

- Green.

Red too.

Is this too much?

- No.

- That's good.

This is way too much.

A darker blue.

Black. Like this?

On my skirt.

Hello. Welcome to Mommy Bread.

Mrs. Sachino, you have a call

from your daughter's school.

I'll do this.

Thank you.

"Nurse's Office"

She insists she did it herself.


There were 11 colors. I counted.

Which one's your favorite?

What's your favorite color?

Light blue.

Mine's red by far.

Red like passion.


It's so you.

Change. Let's go home.

What is she like at home?

She talks to me a lot.

With her father too?


Her father...

disappeared a year ago.

I see. I didn't know.


Go to school tomorrow as usual.

Okay, Azumi?

Wanna ride?



I'm here.

Good morning. For takeout?

I'm eating in.

All right. Anything to drink?

Orange juice, please




Mrs. Sachino?

When did you notice the symptoms?

From about 3 months ago...

I sometimes feel dizzy.

And also sometimes...

my sense of taste is off.

You can't taste food?

Other than that, I'm totally fine.

It'll sting a bit.

First of all

let me warn you that

your condition is very serious.

Doctor, don't look so grim.

You have

terminal cancer in stage 4.

From the pancreas

it has already spread to

various parts of your body.

To the lungs, liver

and also the brain.

Mom, it's already past 8.

I didn't realize.

I'm so hungry I could die.

I'm gonna starve to death.

Hello, Mom? Are you listening?

I decided.

I'll go home top speed...

and make delicious curry for you.

I guess I can wait.

So don't rush. Be safe.


"Investigation Report"

Judging from the laundry,

he's living with a young woman.

In the next town...

It was so easy for a private

investigator to find him.

It usually takes longer.

Some Pls are better than others.


Leftover stubble.

Thank you.

Sorry about that.


Stay quiet, Mayu.

There's a map inside.

Call me if you have any questions.

Sorry to make you wait.

You have chocolate on your cheeks.

And here?

And on your nose. Looks yummy.

Don't eat it.


Your cheeks look yummy.

There you go.

Her mother?

Died giving birth to her.

She's in heaven.

It's far away so we can't go see her.


That's right.

I see.

She's watching over you from heaven.

Can she see me from heaven?

Sure, she can.

Have you ever been there?

No but...
