MADADAYO:

He's coming!

All rise.

Bow.

Be seated.

Someone's been smoking.

Smoking is forbidden

in the classroom.

However...

that just makes you want

to do it all the more.

When I'm

in the faculty room...

and I hear the bell

and begin heading to class,

I suddenly

feel the urge to smoke.

I light a cigarette.

Then, despite myself,

I light another, and another.

So I'm always

20 to 30 minutes late.

But Professor,

what happened today?

It's been more than 30 years

since people began

calling me "professor."

During that time,

like water running

from an open faucet

onto a dirt floor

and into a ditch,

students have drifted away

before my eyes, year after year.

It's impossible to remember

each and every face.

However...

there's one among them

that I remember vividly.

That face belongs to a boy

who slept through class

with his eyes open.

Takayama...

that master snoozer

was your father.

By the way, gentlemen...

today's the last day

for me to be called "professor."

As of today...

I am resigning

my professorship.

Somehow...

my writings

have found a market.

I can make a living off them.

That's not to say...

that I dislike teaching.

But as they say, "He who chases

two hares catches neither,"

so I'm quitting teaching.

Professor.

Even if you quit,

you'll still be our professor.

My dad graduated from this school,

and so did his friends.

To this day

they still call you Professor.

They also say you're pure gold.

Pure gold?

A lump of gold

with no impurities.

I guess they mean

you're a true professor.

You're our German professor,

but I feel you've taught us

a lot of other

very valuable lessons.

TOKYO, 1943

From a distant island

Whose name I don't know

A lone coconut

Drifts ashore

You left the shore of your home...

This is the house

our professor moved into

after he quit teaching.

Ma'am, put the professor

away somewhere.

He's in the way.

Dear.

Put that in the front hallway.

I plan to turn the hallway

into my study.

While I work

I'll also be the gatekeeper,

protecting the house

from invasion

by riffraff like you gentlemen.

RECEIVING DAYS:

1ST AND 15TH OF THE MONTH

VISITORS PROHIBITED

ON OTHER DAYS:

I wonder if it'll be all right.

What?

The rent here is cheap

for such a nice house.

I knew something was fishy.

When I went to buy these noodles,

the shop lady told me

that this house

gets broken into a lot.

Nobody lives here for long.

It stood vacant

for quite a while.

Who cares about burglars?

There's nothing

worth stealing here.

Still... I'm a bit frightened.

Don't worry.

Nobody will break in.

I'm certain of it.

I've been afraid of burglars

ever since I was a child,

so I've tried to find ways

to keep them out.

I've devised a sure-fire method.

Really, sir?

Yes, really.

One o'clock.

The dead of night,

when burglars come out.

I'll go over this wall

and open the wicket.

You go in through there.

Wait a minute.

Aren't we acting like burglars?

I thought we were worried

about what his wife said,

so we're here to check

his precautionary measures.

How can we check them

unless we really try to break in?

Look at that.

What a joke!

"Don't worry," he said.

"Just leave it to me," he said.

It's unbelievable.

BURGLAR'S ENTRANCE

BURGLAR'S PASSAGE

BURGLAR'S LOUNGE

BURGLAR'S EXI Score one for him.

I stole this to get even.

Isn't that his hat?

He wore this as an army instructor.
