Hoshi o ou kodomo (Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below)




How are you?

Got it!

What a mysterious melody...

Journey to Agartha

I haven't been able to hear it again...

Good evening!

Good evening.

Thanks for watching over me.

I'll bring you dinner later, 'kay?


You're home early today!


Forgot to turn off the light.

Dad, I'm home.

Where did you get in from?

Quit it, Mimi!

Let's give thanks...

That sure was a mysterious song.

I wonder if I'll be able to hear it again?

Goodnight, Mimi.

A light?

Maybe it was my imagination...

Next, Miss Yuu Yazaki.

Keep up the good work.

I will!

Next, Miss Asuna Watase.


Asuna has the best score

in the class once more.

Asuna's first again?

You've really been working hard,

haven't you?

That's our class-rep for ya!

She's a studyin' machine!

Now then, before you go, there's

a warning I need to give you.

Lately there have been reports

from a number of students

about a creature near Obuchi

that looks like a bear.

Just in case, please go straight home.

Please go home with a friend

that lives near you.

Yes, ma'am!

Hey, Asuna!

Want to walk home together?

Oh... Sorry, I have to hurry back.

Thanks for asking, though.

Sure... Maybe another time?

Five kilos of rice, please.

Thank you, as always.

Oh, are you all right with that?

Just fine, thank you!

What lovely weather...

I can't hear the birds...

W-What in the world...

Stay away!

Stand back.

It'll be okay.


Its life is coming to an end.


I'm sorry for putting you

in such a scary situation.

This is the end, you see.

U-Um, wait a sec...

Trust me.

I'm sure I came here to meet you.

You're awake, I see.


The danger has passed,

so you can return home safely now.

Um... You saved me, right?

Thank you!

It'd be best for you not to come

near this mountain any longer.


I know what I saw!

There were definitely people there.

Two kids, about this tall...



Over here.

Miss Watase?

Is Asuna absent?

I do hope she's feeling all right...

Now, I think you all might

have heard already,

but that bear appeared yesterday

on the Obuchi Bridge.

We know! A freight train hit it, right?

I heard the police are investigatin'.

But I heard it's already dead.

If you'll pardon the interruption...

It might still be near the routes you take

to school, so take extra-special care.

Yes, ma'am!

Yuu, will you tell Asuna for me?


Also, the substitute teacher

that'll be filling in for me

while I'm on maternity leave

will be coming tomorrow.

Is she pretty?

Sorry, but it's a man.

A guy?

No, I'm definitely going.

It was the bridge right ahead, I heard...

How frightful...

I heard they already started the

trains up again, they did...

Well, there's only one every two hours!

Heya, Asuna!


Lovely sunny day, yes?

Yes... Well...

Oh, Mr. Sato...


Hey, did you hear? They say that bear

showed up on the Obuchi Bridge!

It's here!

Look at this...

Tree saplings...

From the power of vita-aqua?

It's crystallizing...

Perhaps someone has come up

to the surface.

Search the area!

I figured she would come.

Even though I warned her.


Actually, I was hoping she would come, too.

I thought I told you

it would be better not to come.



Why, you traitor...

You were only supposed to

get along with me!

You no-good two-timer...

This... was my place to begin with.

I don't want anyone telling me

not to come here.

I'm the same way.

I came here because I wanted to.

I'm Shun. It's nice to meet you.

I'm... Asuna.

Your arm!

It's bleeding... Is this from yesterday?

Oh, it's fine.

But it's my fault that you...

You should get it looked at

in the hospital later.

My mom works there.

It looks like you have everything

you could need here.

Yeah. But it's the first time this

has ever come in handy.

I kinda wanted my own place,

so I brought things up piece by piece.

You know?

And this is the best place for

the tuning into the radio.


Okay, all finished!

Thank you.

Would you like to listen?

I use this crystal instead of a diode.

Depending on the weather and time of day,

you can get different signals.

Hey, that stone...

Got it!


It's a music program, see?


Want some?

Thank you, I was hungry.

Before, just once, I tuned in to

a really mysterious melody...

It was a song different from any

music I'd ever known before.

Almost like it was the sound

of someone's heart itself.

When I heard it, I was both sad

and happy at the same time,

and I was able to feel like

I was no longer alone...

It will stay with me, always...

I wish I could hear it once again.


You aren't going to ask me anything, Asuna?

I'm sure you must have many questions.

Like what that bear-thing was?


Yeah... But I'm okay for now.

There's so much to ask...

I bet it'll take a while, so I'll

come back here tomorrow.

I came from a different land

named Agartha.


A foreign country?


There was something I wanted to

see, and someone I had to meet.

But now I've accomplished everything

I wanted. I have no regrets.

So your wish came true?


You should go home before it gets dark.

Right... I'll go home after the

cicadas stop chirping.


I'll give you a blessing.

Close your eyes.


W-Was that just a... k-k-k-kiss?


All I wish is for you to live.

That's all I want...
