1: It's been two years
2: since I last saw my dad.
3: What am I supposed to say when I open the door?
4: What would sound right?
5: "I'm home, dad." "Long time no see."
6: "I... became a diver..."
7: I'm h...
1: Welcome home, Daisuke!!
2: M-Mr. Konda...
3: and... two akatenogoi* guys...
side: *Akatenogoi are important titles given to young people who assist in the Yamakasa festival.
4: Hey! Sen!!
5: Your son's home!!
2: Welcome home... I'm glad you made it back in one piece.
3: Looks like you've become quite a man over these past two years!
4: Long time... no see, dad....
5: I... became... a diver...
7: Daiske ran away!!
8: Catch him!!
1: Right now, it's 1 PM on July 10th...
2: Right in the middle of the Hakata Gion Yamakasa Festival, one of the three greatest festivals in all of Japan.
3: The highlight of the festival is the finale on the 15th,
4: where groups of people take 7 kakiyama floats and race to see who can push theirs across 5km of the city first.
5: On the 10th, we showcase the floats and practice. On the 11th, we have a celebratory morning run. On the 12th, we have our first practice on a shorter course. On the 13th, we put on a parade into the old castle area. On the 14th, we do one last circuit of the neighborhood,
6: and on the 15th, the spirit of every last true Hakata native is tested during the race!
7: It's saddening, Daisuke...
8: You ran away from here two years ago, and have continually ignored our counsel in regards to taking part in the festival.
2: before you arrived, we learned from Sen that you'd be coming home, so we waited here.
3: We won't force you.
4: You're free to make your own choice.
5: I... I...
6: have work...
7: Right now, the Current, the patrol boat you're stationed on, is out on the sea for target practice, and they won't be back for another week.
8: You missed your chance to go with them because your diving training was extended.
9: Also, I just took a dump.
3: really is one lucky chump.
4: Apparently he gets to go on vacation until we get back from this. I bet he's going hog wild right now...
5: I dunno about that...
1: You're from Hakata, right?
2: They're right in the middle of the Yamakasa Festival right now.
3: They've probably trying to get him to help out,
4: and he's probably squealing like a pig.
6: Put your hands on the wall!!
9: You're going to... draw blood...
2: That looks great on you, Daisuke!!
3: I don't want it to...
1: Mooore waterrrr!!
4: Please... make this go fast...
5: This... ass festival...
2: I'm home.
3: Dad's the same as he's always been.
4: Usually he's so quiet,
5: but when it comes to the Yamakasa festival,
6: he really goes all-out.
1: Want a drink?
2: I guess it's not so bad after all...
3: If we can use this festival as a chance to bond...
1: Hey man, stop by our place!
2: We'll give you a special discount!
