1: At 22:30, Director General Hirota of the Defense Agency ordered the Coastal Safety Force to mobilize.
2: Every Morning News - Kyushu HQ
3: Currently, they have ordered the naval escorts to fire warning shots toward the suspicious vessels, as well as ordered a P3C patrol plane to drop a bomb...
4: And? Did the suspicious vessel stop?!
5: No. It's still escaping.
6: It was Daisuke...
7: Don't hit them...
8: If you hit them, it'll mean war.
9: That was...
10: his back...
1: 10/27 0:00 AM
2: The captain's baaack.
3: Everyone to the bridge!!
4: How's Daisuke?
5: Tossing and turning...
1: I'm only going to talk about what's actually been decided on.
2: At 22:30, the CSF was mobilized...
3: to pursue the escaping suspicious vessels.
4: We're to abandon our own pursuit.
5: At this point, our boat...
6: will make a 180-turn and return to Hakata Port.
7: Our mission...
8: is over.
1: Now, Minister of Transport Yamazaki's press conference will begin.
2: The Coast Guard had no choice but to end its tracking of the two suspicious vessels...
3: The Defense Agency will be taking care of all further tracking.
4: Now the SDF has the entire sea all to themselves...
5: That's going to raise the military tension up to a whole new level...
7: We'll fly the helicopter as close to the air defense identification zone (ADIZ) as we can.
8: I can't assure you that it'll be a safe job...
9: Do you still want to do it?
1: He really is tossing and turning...
2: Is he dreaming or something?
4: His fever won't go down.
7: Ikezawa... Why do we have to stop following the vessels?
8: Stop it...
9: It's already been decided.
1: Because it's our mission...
2: Because we were ordered to...
3: Because it was decided...
4: What are we?
5: If the captain ordered you to die, would you die, Ikezawa?
6: Wouldn't it piss you off?!
7: Of course it would, goddammit!!
10: Let's go outside.
2: Who's responsible for this ship?
4: It's our job to keep the sea safe...
5: But they told us to refrain from doing just that.
6: Don't you think it's the captain who's the most pissed off right now?!
7: There isn't a single person on board who isn't pissed off.
8: They're pissed... That's why they aren't saying anything!
1: What does it mean to have a job?
7: is our job?
12: Who... is that?
2: My fiancee...
3: I thought you called the wedding off.
4: I just pushed it back.
5: You're always out at sea, Daisuke...
6: I never know where you are.
8: not the kind of woman who waits.
1: Our main goal is just to find out where the naval escorts are.
2: We'll look for the patrol boats if we have the time.
3: At 3:20 am, one of the two suspicious vessels, the boat that had assumed the identity of the Jiroumaru #9, moved beyond the ADIZ.
4: Because of that, the Maritime SDF had to stop tracking it.
1: Naoko... Why don't you go to bed?
2: They've been airing nothing but SDF news for a while now.
3: The Asazuki, a naval escort that was tracking both boats,
4: has joined up with the others to track the remaining suspicious vessel.
5: I'll wake you up
6: if they air any Coast Guard information.
7: Mrs. Katsuta...
8: I'm sure that the SDF soldiers... also have people waiting for them...
9: That's right.
10: The same probably goes... for the people on the suspicious vessels...
1: The suspicious vessels that had the islands shivering yesterday...
2: both left Japan's ADIZ at 6:06 this morning. Therefore, the Defense Agency has stopped pursuing them.
3: Wow... So in the end, they got away.
4: What an unsatisfying end.
5: Gooooood mooooorning.
8: you sure it's OK for you to be up and about already?
10: I'm reaaaally hungry.
1: What's that?
2: There's still a helicopter flying around.
3: It's a newspaper helicopter.
5: There they go, sticking their necks where they don't belong, all for the sake of 'their duty to report the news' or whatever.
6: Don't say that. They've got a job to do too.
7: They get on my nerves. Let's scare 'em away!
1: In the end...
2: the Coast Guard was used and then tossed out.
3: The logic behind it was that they needed a proper reason to mobilize the Coastal Safety Force, and that despite the fact that the Coast Guard was firing warning shots, their patrol boats didn't have what it took to properly handle the situation.
4: Umm... I'm not quite sure I follow.
1: The Defense Agency wanted to use this as a chance to prove to other countries why Japan needs its SDF.
2: This incident was exactly what they had been waiting for.
3: Now that it's over, we can see how everything went according to plan for the Defense Agency.
4: The SDF became the main character, and the Coast Guard became their assistants.
5: A photograph of the naval escorts adorned the front page of the evening newspaper...
6: And below it...
7: Mrs. Katsuta!!
text: The "Current," the patrol boat that fired warning shots at one of the suspicious vessels, photographed at 7:20 am on the 27th. This evening it will return to Hakata Port.
9: This evening...
10: They'll be back tonight...
