317-Episode 229 Rebecca and Filman

'Mufu ...... mufu ...... niufu~......!

In front of the altar, Rebekah is crouching and writhing.
That's a definite reaction.
I'm not sure what to say, but I'm going to say something to her to make her feel better.

'Rebekah, are you okay?
'Mmm, mmm, I'm not okay.

Rebekah replies in a half-crying voice.
She doesn't even turn her head towards me.

'My heart is about to burst ......!
'What?Are you okay, Rebekah?

When Filman called out to her, Rebeka's body jumped. Her heart must have ruptured, right?

'It's ............ okay ......, then ......... ...is.

What's with the little girl tone?
The result of trying to make yourself look good?
You're failing big time, you know.

'Oh, well... I've never seen Rebekah like this before.

Bertha is slowly approaching. She looks at the crouching Rebekah with a surprised expression.
In the meantime, the grudge ......, or Sophie, is waveringly following behind her.
It's really haunted when you see it through a versa. It's the kind of picture that would cause a stir on the Internet if you uploaded it.

'Rebekah, are you alright?

Sophie said kindly.

'U............mm...... are fine, I'm fine.'

At the sound of her sister's voice, he regains his composure a little.
But Rebekah, who is still lying face down and hiding her face, doesn't know.
I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do it, but I'm going to try. It's ...... scary.

I'm not sure if this is the one you're talking about.

I'm sure you'll be glad to hear that," said Sophie, clutching her morning star.
No, Rebekah!If you answer that, a man will die!

'U............ yeah.'

She nodded her head in embarrassment.
With that cute, girlish motion, ...... a person's life came to an end.

I'm not going to let you.You can't let that happen!

She holds Sophie down as she raises the Morning Star.
It's dangerous. ...... What's he doing with a straight face?

I'm not sure what to do.I'm not sure what to do.

I'm not sure.
I'm not sure what you mean by 'unconscious'.

The result of that vow is "elimination"?
The sister's power, scary.

'Uh,............, did you say you're a bug?
'Oh, no, it's ...... Fillman.'
'Oh, Mr. Funamushi.'

Get away from the bugs!
And, Filman. Good to know you're my sister. We're having a conversation. ...... is working, huh?

'Do you like Rebecca?

It's a straightforward question.
But then again, he's a filmmaker. It's a good pass in a way.
In a way, it's a good pass. Say it out loud.

'............ Rebecca is the world.

No, no, no!
I don't know what you're talking about!


I'm crushing on you, nine-year-old girl!

'I don't know what ...... you mean?

You're right, sister!
I agree with you.

'I like ............... ............'
I'm sure you'll agree.

I'm sure you'll be able to understand that I'm not the only one.
It was a series of backflips!
And then Bertha gently stopped the spinning!


And Sophie and Filman stared at each other.

'...... What?'

Oh, Sophie. That's a very difficult question to answer.
It's too vague to say 'all', and too annoying to list them one by one.

'Can I talk about it?

However, the man named Filman suddenly got excited at such a troublesome question, his eyes twinkling.
Yeah, there are some people, aren't there? The ones who want to talk about their favorite things. That annoying creature who goes on and on about it regardless of whether you're interested or not.
That's what Filman is.

'First of all, the way he walks is divided into sixty-four major categories: ......'
'Stop, Filman!

There are sixty-four categories of walking alone. ...... And what categories? I don't even want to imagine how many items there are in those categories.
You can't finish this in a day or two.
I can't spend that much time on it. I've got Donnis in the yard. I want to make this quick.

'Right. I should have started with the voice and the way she talks. I think it would have been easier to get into the world. There are seventy-seven categories of voices at .......'
'Stop the Filmmakers!

That's not it.
No, it's not, Fillman.
If you talk any more nonsense, I'm going to have to cover your mouth--with a gusset.

'I understand Sophie's feelings, but let her talk to Rebekah for now.
'But ...... Rebeka is still a child, and ......'.
'Wha... I am!

Rebeka, who had been being cared for by Bertha, stood up easily.
Her face has turned redder than I've ever seen it. She seems to be standing on her own strength.

'I'm an adult now!I've met my sister, I'm an adult!

When Sophie left the factory, she had told Rebekah that she would see her again when she grew up.
That's why she was trying so hard to become an adult. She hated to be treated as a child more than others. She was acting like an adult.
That is why she is unwilling to be treated as a child right now.

As a girl who has been striving to become an adult, her self-esteem of being an adult has grown beyond her age.
That is why she wants to make her own decisions about love. Because she is an adult.

'I'll decide for myself!

She says, staring at Fillman.
When their eyes meet, he slips away and hides behind Bertha. ...... Oh, there's a kid, over there.

'All right. Then I will respect Rebekah's decision. ...... But if Rebekah is grieved, I will not ............ tolerate it. I have a duty to protect her smile.

As an older sister, Sophie asserted that she would respect her sister's wishes.
She is going to fulfill her duty as an older sister, which she has not been able to do until now.

'Also, ...... I will not tolerate any actions that would take Rebeka away from me. If you look at me in an indecent way, I will condemn you. If you touch me with even a finger, I want to impose unspoken sanctions.
'That's beyond my sister's domain!

Sophie is forcibly pulled away from Rebekah, who is putting a lot of pressure on her.
I'll put her between Magda and Loretta and keep her isolated.
Listen, you two, keep your eyes open.

'Last, but not least, let me ask you this!

While Magda and Loretta were restraining her, Sophie leaned forward and appealed.

'What do you like most about Rebeka?

A desperate entertainment reporter. ......
In response to such a question, Filman replies with absolute confidence.

'It's the face!

...... Yeah. That's a rather lousy response, isn't it?
No, I'm sure he's being honest, but ...... face.


Rebecca, re-blast.
Oh, you're excited, then.

'I'm convinced.'

You're convinced?

'She's super cute, isn't she, Rebeka?
'Yes!It's super cute!

The idiot sister and the idiot boyfriend (candidate) seem to be on the same page.
Rebeka, who is sandwiched in between them, is also ...... happy, so that's good.

It's a good thing that you're not the only one who has a problem with this. ......
'......But there are many cases where people fall in love with someone because of their face.
I'm sure you've heard of it.

The three of them are talking to each other.
...... Paula, have you ever been in love with an ugly person? Well, that's the type of girl who falls in love. It's possible.

It's true that there are many cases where people become friends because they like each other's face. ...... Oh, I see. Filman doesn't have any period of 'getting to know each other', so he's stuck at the 'I like her face' point. I get it.

But well, even if it's just a momentum, he could say things like 'I like Rebeka' and 'I like her face'. Now all you have to do is tell her that you like her, and she'll give you the OK, and you'll be lovers.

'Then, go and tell him directly.
'Yes, sir. I'm off.

Perhaps he had made up his mind, or perhaps he had built up his courage, but he said it strongly in a calm voice.
I watched his back with relief.

Now all I have to do is think of a way to get Donnis on the line. ......

I'm not sure what to say.

You bit me, big time!

'Um, um, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah! Ahhhhhhhhhh ......'

It's broken!
It's freezing, that guy!

'Ha, shame on you!

What, you think you're being objective?Yeah, yeah, I'm embarrassed.

'Is there any value in a man who can't even say '...... I love you'?'

Sophie's shadow wavered as she clutched the Morningstar.
'Magda, do everything you can to stop her!

I'm not sure if you've seen this before, but I'm sure you've seen it before. Loretta and even Ginette.
What are you trying to say?
What are you trying to say, guys?

'Prepare yourselves!

Sophie clenched her fists and scolded Firman in a stern voice.
And then, with eyes filled with anxiety, she added these words.

'If you do, I will spare no effort to help you as much as I can.

Sophie chose the future that would please Rebekah the most.
With a little anxiety, a little loneliness, a strong sense of responsibility, and a great deal of love.

I've never had a boyfriend, so I don't think I can give you any advice!

Yeah, I guess that confession was unnecessary.

'If I don't understand something, I'll ask Bertha and deal with it!
'Bertha here has never had a boyfriend, either!

And Bertha, you don't have to make any unnecessary confessions!
And you don't have to give me a meaningful wink afterwards!

''I wish ...... would explode.''

Sophie and Bertha's voices overlap.
''Do you want to cheer me up, or do you want to get in my way?

''Mr. Fillman.''

With her hands folded in front of her chest, Ginette calls out to Filman with a smile reminiscent of Bertina's.
She has a much more sisterly and holy atmosphere than Sophie, who is supposed to be a sister.

'I can understand your embarrassment. I've often been too embarrassed to speak.

Ginette smiled shyly and made a joke of herself.
It seems that she is trying to ease the tension of the filmmakers,......, but I felt that Ginette has such a thing,.......

I think there are times when you need to be brave. For the sake of your life ahead. And for the happiness of those you love.

Unusually for Ginette, there is a glimpse of positivity in her voice as she encourages others to take action.
We can clearly see that Jeannette herself wants and thinks that she should do so.
But she wouldn't just get excited about someone else's love story and irresponsibly incite them to action. ...... She wouldn't do that, so there must be a reason.
There must be a reason that prompts Philman to act. ...... It is ............

I'm sure you've heard of it, but I'm not sure if you've ever heard of it.

Then he gently points ahead.
At the end of the road stood Rebeka, her face dyed red and her eyes filled with tears.
If you read the air, you'll know the answer. I know exactly what I want.
But I can't shake the uneasiness I feel when I'm one step away from it.

Rebekah's tear glands were swelling to the point of collapse.
Whether the reason for her tears is anxiety or joy, there is a world of difference between the two.

Did Jeannette want to save that little girl, who was growing as tall as she could?

'I think you're the only one who can save her, Mr. Filman. I think you're the only one who can save her.'

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to overstep my bounds,' he said, bowing his head.
But there was no hint of regret on Ginette's face.
No, that was a fine sermon. I could be a sister any day. I don't think you will.

Filman's expression changed as he heard Jeannette's words.
My pushing him back and Sophie's threats didn't reach his heart.
But Ginette's words seemed to reach him easily.
No, perhaps Rebeka's tears had touched his heart.


Standing tall and resolute, Filman stood in front of Rebeka.

'I've been staring at you. I've only been looking at you.'
'Hiya .................. yes'.

Rebeka, too, calmed down her excitement and listened intently to the voice of the filmmaker.

'I like you, Rebekah. I want you to marry me.
'.................. Yes. '...... With pleasure, my dear.'

Instantly, a cheer went up.
The girls at the sunlit pavilion and Bertha shouted with delight.

Libeka and Firman look at each other shyly. However, the anxiety on their faces has disappeared and relief and happiness have colored their smiles.
What a new couple just born, how fresh and new ....... I don't know why I have to be there .......


Magda and Loretta were cheering, but Sophie ran up to Rebeka and hugged her.
She hugged her, slumped down, and sat down on the ground. ......

'Congratulations, oh, oh, oh, oh!

She began to cry.
Sophie clung to Riveka and sobbed.
Oh well. When you see her face, you can't object. Seeing her smile so honestly, like she's at the peak of happiness.

'You did it, Filman.
'Ouch!...... It hurts, Yashiro-san.'

I punch him in the shoulder as hard as I can.
You should take this with a grain of salt. If you don't, the repercussions could be extremely unfortunate. Life is equal parts good and bad. There's good and there's bad in life. When real life is full, it explodes. That's the way it is.


Bertha's voice echoed in the suddenly noisy chapel.
We all looked at Bertha in silence as her voice, though quiet, reached our ears and drew our attention.
As we watched, Bertha put her knees on the floor and bowed her head with her hands.

'Please promise me that you will not refer what you have just seen to the judgment of the spirits.

It was an unexpected action.
In the first place, the Judgment of the Spirits is only effective between the parties concerned.
So even if something were to happen to these two and their marriage were to be annulled, we would not be able to bring it to the judgment of the spirits.
Nevertheless, Bertha is daring us to say the words here.
Why is that?

'It's called parental love.

Perhaps it was the confusion on her face, but Ginette explained it to me.

'No matter how trivial it may seem, in order to ensure that there is no obstacle in the path of your cute little one, you take out multiple layers of insurance ......, which is a very normal emotion because you love your child.
'Is that how it is?
'Yes. That's what the sisters used to say.

That's what they call parental love.

'And ......'

Ginette leans in close and gives me an earful.

'They say that showing affection like that can be a check on the other person. I'm sure you'll be glad to hear that.

I see.
It's true that it's hard to say 'I'm done with this marriage' when you're shown a scene like this. Bertha even got down on her knees and got me and the unrelated Jeannette involved.
If you break the engagement, you don't know what ...... they'll do to you later. Especially me.

'All right. I won't be using the Judgment of the Spirits on this one.
'I won't use it either.'
'...... as well.'
'Same here!

All the members of the Sunlit Pavilion agreed without objection.
You don't have to explicitly say ......?

'I have no objections either. I believe you two.'

Sophie also said clearly with swollen eyes.
You've got quite a heavy load on your shoulders, Filman.

'Thank you, gentlemen.

Standing up, Bertha bows her head once more.
At the same time, Filman crumples to the floor with a thud.

'Whaaaa ........................, I'm so nervous... ...I'm nervous. ......'

He looks as if he's run out of energy.
Well, what can you do?
The next step after 'staring at her from afar' is 'proposing', which is too much of an order.

We'll have to wait until after we're together before we can really talk.
I mean, aren't they having any real conversations right now?
You know, talking about the weather, their favorite foods, normal stuff like that.
I don't even know if they have the same hobbies, but how can they go that far just because they like each other? In this town where the Judgment of the Spirits is held. It's a good thing that you're not the only one who has a problem with this.

The two of you don't even realize how reckless you are,......, so you're in for a rough ride.
I'm sure you're aware of that. The next step is the hard part.

We've confirmed their intentions.
There are two main problems that stand in the way of that.

The problem of the successor to the koji factory and the problem of Donnis' old values-- his attitude toward subhumans.
Both of these problems are already in place. ......

If the word "subhuman" were to come out of Donis's mouth, it could lead to an instant breakup.
Old people might know about the tragedy of the swallowtail butterfly people who married noblemen.
They might be sensitive to the marriage of nobles and subhumans. --I wonder how effective Mahrul's letter will be ....... Well, the odds are against it.

But first, you know.
We've got work to do.

I'm sorry to interrupt your congratulations, but I have a few things to say.

It was Bertha who started the conversation.
The problem that the Koji factory will face with Rebeka's marriage. We need to solve it, or at least come up with a way to minimize the damage.

I just got the item.
The notebook and pen that Poemer Fillman was going to write his stupid poem with.
With that at the ready, I'll face the koji factory guys.

This time. You've done well for yourself, Philman.
I'll take it from here.
I'll control you, you dance well.

And so the second round in the chapel began quietly.
