I know a girl who smells like a tree.

Everything reminds you of girls.


I want to pee.


How many times a night do you piss?

I'm nervous, for some reason.


Lieutenant Iba!

Anything wrong?

The position of Venus is different.

It was there last night.

It can't move so fast overnight.

It's impossible.

Don't lean on me.

Nemoto, come here.

Mr. Mimura, you are as cool as ever.

Cool, cool, cool.

Trouble again?


I see. You're going to quit,


My wife wants me to.

We have a kid now.

Agata. What's the time now?

My watch stopped at 5:18.

- Lieutenant...

- What is it?

My watch stopped as well.

At 5:

Oh, it feels good.

- Hey, Seki. Come on.

- Oh, wait...

Private Nishizawa, 63rd Regiment.

I'm Private Seki.

I'm Iba, 54th Regiment.

Did you get raided by pirates?

Only you here?

Yes, strangely.

Everyone from the Quartermaster

is supposed to be here.

- We'll escort them.

- Yes.

What time is it?

- Oh, it's stopped.

- At what time?

At 5:

It's Nishizawa.

What's wrong?

The engine.

I was told I could get supplies here.

OK. Fix it and go back

to your regiment.

Yano. Put it away.

What will you do, then?

We'll run away.

I'm meeting her tomorrow

at Imaburi Station.

You'll be a deserter.

Her friend lives in Hokkaido.

We'll go there.

Oh, I see.

What time is it?

My watch, as well...


Agata... Agata!


- Kimura.

- Yes.

- Shimada.

- Here.

- Nishizawa.

- Yes.

Check your men.

- We're all safe.

- Good.


What is going on?

I don't know.

I feel like I've been unconscious

a long time.

Me, too.

I remember it stopped at...

Sir, it's moving again.

What time is sunrise?

I don't know what date it is today.

But on the day of man oeuvres,

it was 5:



What is this?

Hey, I remember

there was a power plant.

Where has it gone?

- Where is it?

- Who knows?

- Where is it, Lieutenant?

- Sir...

Calm down, everyone.

I want to pee.

This is no time for jokes.

Our tank and trucks are still here.

This must be the fifth supply area,

where we're supposed to gather.

There should be other regiments

here by now.

What's going on?

Why are we alone?

- Kimura. Radio HQ.

- Yes, sir.

Calling 0101.

This is 1616, over.

Calling 0000. 0000.

This is 1616.

Can you hear me? Over.

There's no response.

The terrain looks the same,

but the landscape has changed.

I thought the ship sank.

Where is the commander?

I'm Ensign Ono,

- Seaman Takashima.

- Seaman Suga.

I'm Second Lieutenant Iba,

What's going on here?

We don't know either.

We were heading to Sector Four.

But before we realized,

the ship had turned this way.

We thought the sea had swallowed you.

We thought so as well.

The great shining wave swallowed us.

He's off to piss again.

Is there a festival on?

Technical Sergeant Shimizu,

Airman Onishi.

I'm Lieutenant Iba.

- Where have you been?

- We were heading to the base.

But suddenly we lost altitude.

Excuse me...

I felt as if we were being sucked

into the sea.


Get back!

Sir, it could be a time slip.

Time slip?

Yano! Yano!

Don't shoot.

- Bastards.

- Don't, Yano!


I won't forgive you

next time you disobey.

- It hurts.

- Mr. Yano.

How does it feel

to shoot at real human beings?

- Next time I'll kill them.

- Lieutenant. Look.

Don't shoot until I tell you to.

I'm from Kasugayama Castle.

Lord Koizumi is my master.

I'm Kagetora Nagao.

I'm Kagetora's manservant,

Magoichi Kuribayashi.

I'm Takehide Ishiba.

Yoritsuka Asaba.

Katsumasu Takekawa.

I'm Yoshiaki Iba,

the Self-Defense Force.

You're the same tribe.

They are our tribe, Magoichi.

Where are you from?

We belong to the regiment called

the Eastern Army.

Why... why are you here?

It's hard to explain.

We drifted here, in a way.


This metal horse is neighing.

As you've suddenly appeared

in my territory,

Kuroda, my enemy, is shocked.

And that...

What was that thing flying?

A helicopter.


Heli... cop...

And what was that, da-da-da...

What was that?

Is it a kind of gun?

That's a machine gun.


Hello, friends.

That machine...

How can I get on this horse?

Please... that...

Will you let me see that one

more closely?

All right.

Excuse me.

What did you call this?

M2 Caliber. A machine gun.


Would you like to have a go?


Hey! Magoichi, look at me!

Look at me!


And this thing is...

This is 400 years back...


I must have them on my side.

Monkey. Do you have any ideas?

Let's send them some food.

They said they have enough.

After you've shot that 'Da-da-da-da'

and brought them food,

Kuroda will think

they are on our side.

You're clever as ever, Monkey.


It really was a time slip.

Time slip?

What's a 'time slip'?

We slipped through time

into a different age.

Time slip? No kidding.

It's impossible.

But it did happen.

By some mistake,

we slipped into this era.

Kagetora was a funny man.

"We are the same tribe. "


Get down, everyone!


A bad joke...



Don't shoot. Hold your fire.

Nobody should shoot!

Lieutenant Iba!

Don't get involved.

- We don't know what will happen...

- Drive!

- Lieutenant!

- Hurry!


Go, Agata.

- Go, quickly!

- I know.


- You did it again, Yano.

- Charge!

- Keep going.

- Can we?
