                 for the return of King Devil Eyes...

        Monster: Heh!! Listen to the drums!! Because I'm going to kill you!!

        Yakumo: Tell me the secret of this statue...

Page 158:

        Monster: Secret...?

        Yakumo: The secret of San Ji Yan's "Humanization Magic" is what
                I mean.

        Monster: Humanization!? What are you talking about? That...?

        Yakumo: To ask... Then why are you guys trying to get this Statue?

        Yakumo: Oh. rebelliousness!! I'll shatter this...

        Monster: Chie!!

        Monster: T... That is because a long time ago some guy who first
                 united us revealed that he wanted it and that's it.

Page 159:

        Yakumo: Was it King Devil Eyes...

        Monster: Yes...

        Monster: He said he will bestow never aging/never dying on the person
                 who finds the statue...

        Yakumo: As I thought... Your purpose was immortality...
                Though I don't know all the details...

        Yakumo: Hey. Where is this King Devil Eyes now?

Page 160:

        Monster: To bad youth...

        Monster: No one knows where he is now...

        Yakumo: ........

        Monster: 300 years ago someone

Page 161:

        Monster: Is said to have put a seal on him...

        Monster: The reason...

        Monster: Do you know what we have been working toward in the
darkness!!

Book 2, Story 7(#15) - Sacrifice of the Devil Wing - Part V

Translated by Jeffery Hansen (hansen@cmu.edu)

pg. 175)
  Crowd:	What is it?  What is it?  A fire?
  Crowd:	Don't you know?  You know that all those women that have been
		kidnapped lately.  They say the kidnapper is at the Royal
		Hotel Soala Hong Kong.

  Crowd:	A kidnapping?
  Crowd:	It seems there was an anonymous tip to the police and it has
		caused quite a stir.

  Crowd:	Ho...yet another terrible event....

pg. 176)
  Crowd:	Ah!  Look out!

pg. 179)
  Pai:		Does it hurt?  Are you OK Yakumo?
  Yakumo:	Ah...  Thank you!

pg. 180)
  Yakumo:	Hehn!  What's with that attitude.  I saved her didn't I.  Isn't
		that right Pai?

  Yakumo:	Pai?

pg. 181)
  Ling Ling:	Err!  What do you think your doing?  How many times to I have to
		tell not to be goofing off at times like this!!

  Ling Ling:	There's a hellicopter on the roof.  We'd better run there quickly, 
		this place is going to be a sea of fire soon.

  Yakumo:	That's because you over did it isn't it?

pg. 182)
  Ling Ling:	Ha ha ha!  Don't worry about it! Don't worry about!!  It's
		all right!!  The weapons, ammo, everything is being paid
		for by Ms. Wong!
  Yakumo:	That's not what I meant!!

  Yakumo:	There are some women being held captive here!!

  Ling Ling:	Waste not want not!

  Ling Ling:	Everyone has fleed downstairs.  Since Ms. Wong notified
		the police, they should all be rescued down there.

  Yakumo:	Whaa!

pg. 183)
  Ling Ling:	Come on!  Hurry!  To the roof!! 

  Yakumo:	Of course.  Now that I think of it, Ryouko has
		dissapeared.  If you hang out around here too long,
		you'll just get enveloped in the flames and die.

  Ling Ling:	At any rate

  Ling Ling:	Since we were armed, and we got the statue back, we
		don't need any help from the police.  Thus it's better
		to do things in a fancy way, cause a great confusion
		and escape in the helicopter.

  Yakumo:	But we'll just be tracked in the helicopter.
  Ling Ling:	We're going to ditch it in the ocean.  Ms. Wong will
		pick us up with her Cruiser.

  Yakumo:	You have everything planed don't you.

  Ling Ling:	Me along with Wong's secret army. [lit. "followers"
		or "subordinates"]

pg. 184)
  Yakumo:	Weapons and followers.... That Ms. Wong person is really
		somthing isn't she.  [note: In Japanese the first
		pharse becomes "buki ni buka" which is somewhat of a play
		on words because of the similarity between "followers"
		and "weapons"]

  Yakumo:	However, becomeing involved in something like this
		is bad for my reputation.

  Pai:		Eh he he.  Not at all.  I don't think your reputation
		is dameged for saving Meixing.  I just think you're
		I nice guy!
  Yakumo:	That's not what I ment...

  Pai:		It's OK, I understand.  Pai likes Meixing *too*.
  Yakumo:	Uh!

  Yakumo:	I don't think anything at all about Meixing [in other
		words he's emphatically stating he has no love interests
		in Meixing].

pg. 185)
  Pai:		You're lying!
  Yakumo:	It's the truth!  I don't think anything at all of that
		bitch...

  Meixing:	Hey!
  Yakumo:	ahhh!

  Yakumo:	Wha..What is it that you want?  Since we're in kind of an
		emergency situtation here, be gentle...

  Meixing:	It was wrong of me to doubt you..... I'm sorry... and thanks.
		[in Japanese with a Chinese accent].

  Meixing:	You're right hand... for me....
  Yakumo:	Ah! Don't worry about....  I'll just grow another one soon.

pg. 186)
  Meixing:	I'm sorry.

  Meixing:	I damaged.... your boyfriend...

  Yakumo:	Boy
  Pai:		friend?

  Yakumo:	Ah ha ha ha ha, Um, well, we're not yet... That is we like
		each other but...
  Pai:		Yakumo isn't my boyfriend.  He's my "dachinko" (Friend)

pg. 187)
  Meixing:	Da-chi-n-ko?
  Pai:		Academically speaking, its what they call "friend"
		in the study of primates. (Pai is really cool isn't she).

  Meixing:	The..then he's not you're boyfriend at all?
  Pai:		Not at all!!

  Yakumo[thinking]: Not at all!?

  Meixing:	Ah ha ha ha ha is that so ah ha ha ha ha
  Pai[thinking]: eh he he.  I wonder what a "boyfriend" is?

  Meixing:	Ah ha!  Somehow I suddenly feel much happier!!  Really!!
		I'm so glad I didn't become a sacrafice for this
		Kaiyanwan or whatever guy.

pg. 188)
  Pai:		Kai

  Pai:		Yan

pg. 189)
  Pilot:	Instruments OK!!  Engine OK!!  Fule OK!!

  Yakumo[thinking]: A dachinko huh?

  Yakumo[thinking]: Well, I guess that really is true isn't it.  We're not
		really boyfriend/girlfriend yet.  But still.... At least
		she could be a little embarassed or her face could turn
		red before she ansered "no".

pg. 190)
  Yakumo[thinking]: But just saying we're only friends without even
		hesitating, I...I....


  Ling Ling:	All right, we're going!!  Everyone's on right?

  Ling Ling:	Here we go!!

  Yakumo:	Pai!!  Where's Pai!!  Pai's not here!!

  Yakumo:	What is this?  She's still in there!!

pg. 191)
  Yakumo:	Pai!!
  Ling Ling:	Don't go!!  It's too dangerous!!  If it's Pai, she's fine.
		I met her on the 30th floor and told her the way to the
		elevators.

  Yakumo:	But still, I have to go save her.  Everyone go on ahead.

  Ling Ling:	Yakumo!!

pg. 192)
  Ryouko:	You!! I won't let you leave alive!!

  Yakumo:	Ryouko!?  You're still alive!?

pg. 193)
  Ling Ling:	Yakumo!!

pg. 194)
  Long:		It's no good.... With the defence field he's putting out with
		his wings, no matter what weapon we used, we can't hurt him.

  Ling Ling:	This is no time for you're lectures...

  Long:		It's... If only we could prevent him from using his wings...

  Yakumo:	It's no use!!  We already got the statue of humanity... Yakumo
		come back!!  You'll just be killed!

  Yakumo:	I won't die!!

  Yakumo:	Everyone has something that is more important to them than
		themselves.

  Yakumo:	For me that something is...

pg. 195)
  Yakumo:	Pai!

  Ling Ling:	Tha...that forehead!?

  Long:		Wu!?

  Ryouko:  	Wh.. what the...

pg. 196)
  Yakumo:	No matter what happens, I won't die!!  Therefore, everyone go
		on ahead.

  Ryouko:	It can't be!!  It can't be!!  Is there really another
		Sanjiyan other than Kaiyanwan!?

  Ryouko:	It can't be!!  It can't be!!

pg. 197)
  Ryouko:	Wait!!

  Meixing:	No!  Don't go!!  I won't let you just leave them behind.
  Ling Ling:	Be quite!!

  Ling Ling:	We're not going to leave them behind.  We'll wait right up to
		the last second.

pg. 200)
  Sanjiyan:	Don't remember....Pai!  The things of your past....

  Sanjiyan:	You went to all the trouble to forget....

  Sanjiyan:	Don't remember....

  Sanjiyan:	He's gone now....

pg. 202)
  Ryouko:	It's a lie!  It's a lie!

  Ryouko:	You can't be an Wu!!

  Ryouko:	Die! Die!  Die and let me tear you skin off!!

  Yakumo:	Uhhhh

  Yakumo:	Ha!

pg. 203)
  Yakumo:	Grrrr... All you do is get in my way!!

  Yakumo:	You!!

  Yakumo:	Rrrroowww!

  Ryouko:	Wha..what!?

  Yakumo:	Die and go to hell!!

pg. 204)
  Yakumo:	Down!

pg. 206)
  Sanjiyan:	Y..you are....


Book 2, Story 8(#16) - Sacrifice of the Devil Wing - Part VI

Translated by Jeffery Hansen (hansen@cmu.edu)

pg. 207)
  Sanjiyan:	He...help me Yakumooo..

pg. 208)
  Yakumo:	I'm coming Pai!!

pg. 210)
  Yakumo:	I...I can't believe it.

  Yakumo:	It feels like a surge of energy is suddenly flowing through
		my body. [lit. Like a lie, my body is filled with power]
		Pai.  Pai is calling me!!

  Yakumo:	I have to hurry!!  I have to hurry and get Pai out of here...

  Ryouko:	Ooohhh..  Please stop.  Please don't kill me...

pg. 211)
  Yakumo:	So you go and kill all those women, and no you are pleading
		for your life!!

  Ryouko:	It wasn't me...

  Ryouko:	I did the sacrafices because I was ordered to by someone.  It
		wasn't because I wanted to...

  Ryouko:	That "someone" is searching for a way to bring back Kaiyanwan.
		He's having many beings of darkness try all sorts of
		different rituals....

pg. 212)
  Ryouko:	I'm just one of the many....

  Yakumo:	Wha...

  Ryouko:	Therefore, I beg you!  Spare my life.

  Ryouko:	If you are an Wu, then you are one of us....Work for the
		resurection of Kaiyanwan and establish the creatures of
		darkness as a nation of undead!!

pg. 213)
  Man:		How surprising... A Sanjiyan still alive.

  Man:		What are you doing here?

  Sanjiyan:	The same as you... I came for the statue.  One of my
		followers was able to find it immediately using a
		tracking device.
pg. 214)
  Man:		Follower?  Is the statue with them?
  Sanjiyan:	I'm not going to tell you.

  Man:		What do you want?  Do you want to become human?  If you give
		me the statue, I'll make you human.
  Sanjiyan:	Rather than that...

  Sanjiyan:	What has happend with Kaiyan?

  Sanjiyan:	Why are you seeking the statue?  Kaiyanwan is supposed to
		be sealed in the Seichi (Holy Land).

pg. 215)
  Man:		An old seal like that isn't something that can bind my
		leader forever.  The resurection of Kaiyanwan is only
		a matter of time now.

  Sanjiyan:	And that's why you want the statue!!

  Sanjiyan:	The statue is a two-edged sword.  It can be a tool for
		humanization, or it can be a horrible source of power
		for the desruction of the world...

  Sanjiyan:	I'm quite satisfied with the world as it is right now.  I
		won't let it be used by those drunk with power and bent
		on destruction.

  Sanjiyan:	I will never hand over the statue!!

pg. 216)
  Man:		No matter what?
  Sanjiyan:	Of course not!!  Even if it's in trade for my own life, I won't
		let him be resurected.

  Man:		I see.  But what are you going to do?  Do you think you can
		kill me?

  Sanjiyan:	Be quite!!

  Sanjiyan:	For vermin like you!!  I'll do this!!

  Sanjiyan:	Ah!

pg. 218)
  Yakumo:	Pheww...

  Yakumo:	This is really supprising.  The foor is going to pieces.

  Yakumo:	This room is///!

  Yakumo:	Pai, Pai,  Where's Pai!?

pg. 220)
  Yakumo:	Ah ah.

  Ryouko:	Lord Benaresu

  Yakumo[thinking]: Of course!  Could this guy be the General over all the
		monsters.  Or even more than that, the Wu of Kaiyanwan?

  Ryouko:	He he he he.  Please be happy.  Here's an unbelievable[?]
		find.  An Wu.  But a fool who won't even finnish off his
		enimies.

  Benaresu:	The fool...

pg. 221)
  Benaresu:	is you!

  Benaresu:	Come forth!!  Touchao!! (Earth Claw)

pg. 222)
  Benaresu:	I have no need for someone who gets beat up by a little
		pipsqueak.

  Benaresu:	Kid....where's the statue?
  Ryouko:	But...

pg. 223)
  Yakumo:	What shall I do...

  Pai:		Uhh...
  Yakumo:	Pai!!

  Pai:		Yakumo!!

  Pai:		EEeeiii!
  Benaresu:	Hmmph

  Yakumo:	Uh..

pg. 224)
  Yakumo:	Grrr.....

  Benaresu:	He he he...  A fight between Wu's is a waste of time.

  Benaresu:	I will have you return the statue shortly.  In the mean
		time take good care of the girl.

pg. 225)
  Yakumo:	We're saved...

  Yakumo:	Whew

  Sanjiyan:	You're slow, fool!

  Sanjiyan:	But for you, not bad.

  Yakumo:	You, you, I'm gonna' sock you one!!

  Pai:		Hey Yakumo!!  You're right arm is already better!!  Wow!!

  Pai:		Yakumo?  What is it?  Huh?  Huh?  Huh?
  Yakumo:	(That's really underhanded)

pg. 226)
  Yakumo:	Shit!!

  Yakumo:	The elevator, the emergancy ladder, everything is no good.
		How are we going to get out of here.
  Pai:		I'm sorry.  It's all Pai's fault...
  Yakumo:	That's not true at all.  It's all that thing's fault.

  Ryouko:	Uhh....I don't want to die...

pg. 227)
  Pai:		I'm sorry.  But don't worry.  We'll save you.

  Pai:		I'm sorry.

  Yakumo:	Unbelievable....

  Yakumo:	Ryouko!!  Is there another route up!!

pg. 228)
  Ryouko:	Fools.  What do you hope to gain by fleeing up?

  Yakumo:	Perhase everyone is still waiting for us on the roof.

  Ryouko:	He he he.  You're overly optimistic.  Look at me.  Even that
		undead Benaresu is only thinking of himself.

  Ryouko:	As for ordinary humans....

  Ryouko:	they have their hand full just looking out for their own
		safety.

  Ryouko:	Why should they wait on the roof of a burning building?  What
		do they have to gain by waiting for you?  There's nobody
		that thinks about others.

pg. 229)
  Pai:		Uhn uhn.  That't not true at all.

  Yakumo:	Pai...

  Pai:		Yakumo sticks his neck out for me.  Therefor, Pai is also betting
		her life on Yakumo.

  Pai:		Because we are "dachinko" (friends).  Ordinary humans stick their
		necks out for their friends.

pg. 230)
  Pai:		Meixing too, Ling Ling too.  We're all friends.
  Yakumo:	Pai....

  Ryouko:	Inside that column, there's a ladder going to the roof.  Hurry!!

  Yakumo:	Ryouko...

  Ryouko:	Hurry up and go!!  You're an eyesore.  You're going to die anyway,
		so go die on the roof.

  Pai:		Ryouko, flee with us.

  Ryouko:	Would you hurry up and take her away!!

  Yakumo:	Thank you!
  Pai:		Yakumo!?

pg. 231)
  Pai:		Ryouko!!
  Yakumo:	Give it up, Pai!

  Ryouko:	He he he.  The final sacrafice will be with my own blood.

  Pai:		Ryouko!!
  Yakumo:	This is no time to be crying!!

  Yakumo:	Since he went to the trouble to tell us the way, we can't
		let it go to waste!!

pg. 232)
  Yakumo:	Ha.... ha ha.... (I guess there was no reason to think
		they'd be here...)

  Yakumo:	Oh well... I guess....

  Yakumo:	...after all...

  Yakumo:	this is it....

  Pai:		Look!  It's just as Pai said!
  Yakumo:	Ah Ah

pg. 233)
  Pai:		Therefore, Pai really likes humans!!

pg. 234)
  Pai:		Dachinko!

  Pai[narration]: Pai, by all means, wants to become human.


Book 2, Story 9(#17) - Lost

Translated by Jeffery Hansen (hansen@cmu.edu)

pg. 236)
  Meixing:	Ohhh!  You go it!  You got it!
  Pai:		Morning!

pg. 237)
  Pai:		Hmphm (clearing throat)  Good morning Yakumo!
  Ling Ling:	(Hey!  Pull in your stomach!!)

  Ling Ling:	You're open!

  Yakumo:	Waaa!

  Ling Ling:	Ha!

  Yakumo:	Wa!  All right you got me Ling Ling, now stop....

pg. 238)
  Ling Ling:	Things aren't that sweet in reality

  Ling Ling:	If you let your back be taking this easy, you won't
		be able to protect Pai.

  Ling Ling:	Tickle. Tickle.

  Yakumo[Naration]: It's been two weeks since we got back the statue of
		humanity.  We've been at Ms. Wong's house [lit.
		been a trouble to Ms. Wong]

pg. 239)
  Yakumo[Naration]: Leading a life of ease on the pretense that we are
		waiting for the analysis on the statue.

  Pai:		You must be anxious.  You're hospital release party
		is tomorrow.
  Long:		Sorry to make you go to all that bother.
  Meixing:	Take it easy on the food, brother.

  Long:		Rather than my hospital release, why don't we celebrate
		your becoming human?

  Yakumo[Narration]: What if we become human?  That's the biggest problem.

pg. 240)
  Yakumo[Narration]: I, of course, will return to Japan.  But Pai.  What
		will Pai do?  Go back to Tibet, I suppose.

  Yakumo's Day Dream:
     Yakumo:	Let's live together in Japan.
     Pai:	That would make me so happy.  I like Yakumo a lot
		[Remember, in Japanese "like" is pretty close to "love"]

  Yakumo:	Oh Yeah!  Oh Yeah!

  Pai:		You're so strange Yakumo.  What's wrong?

  Yakumo:	Nothing.

pg. 241)
  Yakumo:	Uh, um.  If....if...we become human.  Wha....what will
		you d...do P...Pai?

  Yakumo[thinking]: Now's my chance.  I'll just ask her to live in Japan
		with me.

  Pai:		PARTY!
  Yakumo:	Huh?

  Pai:		That's right.  A humanization celebration.  Actually, this
		is going to be Pai's first party.
  Yakumo:	Huh?

  Pai:		But, I'm looking forward to tomorrow to.  Why do you suppose
		it is so fun living together with *everyone*.  He he he.

pg. 242)
  Pai:		Isn't Yakumo happy too?  LIVING TOGETHER WITH EVERYONE.

  Yakumo:	No..no it's not that but...
  Pai:		You're strange.

  Wong:		All clear?
  Thug:		Yeah.  I don't think Benaresu will come after them in the
		middle of town.

  Figure:	Shunkai.  What do you indent to do?

  Wong:		What are you talking about.  Those two are a real Sanjiyan
		and Wu.  We must follow Benaresu and not make enemies of
		them.

pg. 243)
  Wong:		If we keep them in our palm, they will surely be useful
		some day.

  Wong:		And if for some reason Kaiyanwan can't be resurected,
		then.... [lit. the original says "in the one in ten thousand
		chance", a Japanese expression]

  Wong:		we will make her the 2nd Kaiyanwan.

  Wong:		All right.  Don't go after her again, you hear?

  Figure:	Ge he he he.

  Bug Eye:	Understood.

pg. 244)
  Yakumo:	Arrrgh!  Shit!  I can't stand it.  Why can't I just ask her
		to live in Japan with me.

  Yakumo:	I guess my courage doesn't beome invincable with the rest of me.

pg. 245)
  Yakumo:	Sigh.  I just won't be satisfied until I get this over with.

  Yakumo:	I'll just go ask Pai what her feelings are.

  Yakumo:	I'll just tell her to come with me, and not complain
		about the reply.

  Yakumo:	Here we go.  Are you awake Pai!!  I'm comming in.

  Sanjiyan:	Be quite!

pg. 246)
  Sanjiyan:	We have a guest which has taken over the body of Takuhi.

  Face:		How are you doing, kid?

  Yakumo:	Be..Benaresu.  You're Kaiyanwan's Wu aren't you.

  Benaresu:	That's right.

  Yakumo:	We're about to become human.  We have nothing to do with
		you.  Go home!!

pg. 247)
  Benaresu:	I'll give you one day.

  Benaresu:	The Sanjiyan will come to Aberdeen alone by morning 
		two days hence.

  Benaresu:	Don't be alarmed.  I won't take her and eat her or anything.
		In order to assure the resurection of Kaiyanwan, I will
		just have her sleep for a while.  I guarantee her life,
		and as soon as Kaiyanwan is resurected, I will return her.

  Yakumo:	And why should we hand Pai over to the likes of you!?

pg. 248)
  Benaresu:	If you don't want the people in the mansion to become
		like this, you'd best do as I say.

  Benaresu:	Think it over well.  The morning two days hence.

  Benaresu:	I'll be waiting.

pg. 249)
  Yakumo:	Will you tell me the details.  About Wu, and about
		Kaiyanwan.

  Sanjiyan:	Long ago.... There was a wicked Sanjiyan who tried
		to become the rule over all life on this land.

  Snajiyan:	We tried to admonish him against it, but it was no
		use.  Instead, we were treated as enemies, and 
		exterminated.

pg. 250)
  Sanjiyan:	Combined with the power of Benaresu, the days passed
		as living hell.

  Sanjiyan:	In the end, the remaining Sanjiyan sealed him in the
		Seichi (Holy Land).  In exchange for their lives.

  Sanjiyan:	When I(Pai) came to.  I was alone.  That's all I
		know.  I had thought that that was the end of it all.

pg. 251)
  Sanjiyan:	We must fight, Yakumo!

  Sanjiyan:	I think that bastard will keep his promise and let
		Pai live.  But rather than that, he will cause
		Kaiyanwan's resurection and set humanity on a
		path to destruction.

  Sanjiyan:	Don't tell this to anyone.  Not even to Pai.  Nor
		talk of Takuhi.  We take off on the morning two days
		hence.  Be prepared.
  Yakumo:	Und..understood.

pg. 252)
  Yakumo[narration]: Do we really stand a chance against him?  If we
		loose, what's going to happen.
  Pai:		Yakumo, Yakumo.

pg. 253)
  Yakumo[narration]: We must win.  We must make this the final battle.
		Win, and become human with Pai.

pg. 254)
  Yakumo:	Pai...
  Pai:		What is it?  What are you thinking?  Yakumo.

  Yakumo:	Whe...when we become human, I...I will return to Japan.
  Pai:		Yakumo....

  Yakumo:	Th..th...therefore, wo...wont you come too Pai?
		I...you [note: He's trying to say "I like you",
		but in Japanese the "like" comes at the end
		of the sentance and is omitted here].

  Pai:		Yes.  When we become human.

pg. 256)
  Yakumo[thinking]: I did it!  With this, my little adventure that started
		in Tokyo will come to a happy ending.

  Sideline:	*when* we become human...

  Ling Ling:	Come on!  Since you went to all the trouble to become
		undead, we could do monster extermination and make
		a lot of money.
  Yakumo:	No way!  I'm going to become human soon.
  Wong:		My!  You're in a good mood Yakumo.

  Meixing:	Say! Where's Pai?

  Yakumo:	Hm?  She was jyst here a second ago.  How strange.

pg. 257)
  Pai:		Yakumo.... Everyone.... Pai is going to defeat Kaiyanwan,
		and promises to return.

  Sanjiyan:	Did you realize it, Pai?
  Pai:		Yes.  Takuhi's spirt told me.

  Sanjiyan:	Going alone is foolish.  There's nothing better for defeating
		a Sanjiyan than an Wu.
  Pai:		I don't want to inconvenience anyone anymore.

  Pai:		For everyone's sake, for Yakumo's sake, Pai will risk
		her life.
  Sanjiyan:	But you know, if you should die, so will Yakumo.

pg. 258)
  Sanjiyan:	Never mind.  Lets go.  To defeat Kaiyanwan.  And then.  To
		return.  To Yakumo's side.
pg. 259)
  Yakumo:	Pai!  Where are you Pai!  Pai!

  Yakumo:	Pai....

  Note:		I'm sorry.  Pai is going to fight alone.  I promise
		to return.  Wait for me OK?

  Yakumo:	That, foolish...

pg. 260)
  People:	What is that?  It's coming from Aberdeen.
  Yakumo:	PAI!!!!!

pg. 262)
  Yakumo[narration]: Pai didn't return....  But as long as I'm alive,
		I know Pai's alive too.

pg. 263)
  Yakumo[narration]: This time it's my turn to search.  No matter how
		many years it takes.  Then, we will become human together.
