I already know you're a sick man. Hope the plane doesn't crash - with you on board, it'll go straight to hell. Not fair to the other passengers.
I'm sorry, Ibe, but believe me when I say this: I'll die before I let them lay a finger on Eiji.
Ash, I can't anymore. Set me free. I'm in so much pain.
Don't mind me... you guys need something? Some snacks? A condom?
Aren't there any decent parents in this world? It's not like kids get to choose them at birth, you know. And they can't exchange them if they turn out to be losers.

I wonder if I'm dying somewhere. I remember everything, but it's peaceful. I see it again, but there isn't any pain. Leave the weight of joy and sorrow alike down in that bed. That's how death lifts away, doesn't it?
I'm not afraid of death. People are funny because, of course, they don't know anything about death. They never experienced it and knew it was something to fear, but they fear it instinctively. There've been countless times in my life when I thought I'd be better off dead. That nothing could be worse than what was happening to me right then. At times like that... death looks sweet and peaceful, and unbearably enticing.

Look, sun's setting. Sunrise and sunset are about the only times this junkyard of a city looks good.
I am very worried because I haven't seen you and I don't know if you are okay.
You said to me before, "we live in different worlds," but I am not sure if that is true. We are from different countries, and our skin and eyes are different colours. But so what? We are friends. Isn't that enough? What else do we need?
I am very happy I came to America. I made many friends here. Above all… I met you, Ash.
You asked me many times if you scare me. But I never felt scared of you, not even once, From the first time I met you.
Actually, I always felt that you are hurt, much more than me - that your spirit is wounded.
I know you are much smarter than me, and bigger, and stronger - but even so, I always wanted to protect you. Funny, isn't it?
But what did I want to protect you from?
I think I wanted to protect you from your future. Because your fate was sweeping you away, like a flood.
Do you remember telling me about the leopard in the Hemingway book? He died at the top of the mountain, and you said he knew he will never go back down. But I said you are not a leopard, and that you can change your future. It's true, Ash. You can change your fate.
You are not alone, Ash. I am with you. My soul is always with you.
