Change course, Direction, 120 degrees

Roger, hard to port

Hard to port

- I need navigational information

- OK

It all began one day,

without warning,

like this...

Still no answer at Taguchi's?


It's been a week,

he must have his reasons

It shouldn't take a whole week

to work on that disk


Something's wrong

Maybe I should see if he's OK

I just got the creeps


I don't know,

I just feel like something's wrong

Like something's horribly wrong

What's up with Taguchi?

I don't know

If we don't get that disk now,

we're in real trouble

The deadline's tomorrow

I know that

What am I supposed to do?

We haven't heard a thing

I think I'd better go see how he's doing



Hey, you are here

Hey, Michi...

I was worried about you,

you haven't called

Right, sorry

Did you finish working on that disk?

Yeah, it's somewhere in that pile

You OK? Are you sick?


What have you been up to,

all on your lonesome? We're friends


Help yourself to the disk

You ought to label your disks

This is it?

The one marked Work File?



Oh, Junco

You OK? Was it awful?

I'm fine

I'd say it's break time

Oh, I forgot, here


It's so upsetting

I don't know what he was

so depressed about

He never said anything,

so what could we have done?


he suddenly just wanted to die

I get that way sometimes

It's so easy to hang yourself

Hey! Why so gloomy?

Oh, sorry

About Taguchi?

It's just...If only I'd...

He seemed like the Taguchi I know

I never imagined he'd

do something like that

Time to put it behind us

Besides, it wasn't your fault


Say...Would you take a look?

At what?

Taguchi's disk

What is it?

It's Taguchi's place

Is that Taguchi?

Yeah, I think so


What's going on?

Isn't that the same scene?

I can't tell

Hey, look

That's a face...

A reflection

You're right

Can you blow it up?

Let me see...

That was Taguchi, wasn't it?

Sure seems like it

What's going on?

Maybe something strange is going on


I don't know

I don't even care anymore

Something's definitely not right

A message in a bottle

launched 10 years ago

by a boy on Tanegashima Island,

was recently discovered

on a beach in Malaysia

some 4,000km away

Hikono Koichi was

a 4th grader

when he sent off his message

Members of a local group,

cleaning up the beach,

a sea turtle habitat,

discovered the bottle by accident

I never imagined it would find its

way to some foreign country

I was shocked to get

an answer after 10 years

The group located Hikono

through his former elementary school

Next, the National Weather Service

forecasts another unseasonably

hot summer, it's the 3rd

for eastern Japan...

for western Japan...

Northern Japan...will...

''Welcome to the Internet''

No, this way. Here, OK

Next, OK

''Have Fun''...OK, I'll have fun

Done ''OK''

What's this crap?

Yes, I agree


What? I guess that's OK

Next again, huh


What the...Oh well...

What the hell...



Would you like to meet a ghost?

Stupid crap!

What the...

Maybe you should change

the size on this batch file

Using the variable?


So you'll find its property, right?

On, conventional memory



So that's how you do it


Can the internet dial you up itself?

You in computer science?

No, economics, no relation

Huh...Sounds like a hacker

A hacker...


It said

''Do you want to meet a ghost?''

Some website like that

A ghost, huh...

Which website was that?


Something about meeting ghosts?

I don't really know
