She's a Hot Baby
SFX: rattle (x4)
box 3: Legend has it that the Nemuri family has inherited demonic blood.
sign: Nemuri Taizou
SFX: rattle (x4)
box 4: The entire family is pure evil.
box 5: However...
box 6: There's one member who doesn't fit in with the rest.
1: Himeko! I'm hungry!
2: Okie dokie!
1: The thunder sounds nice tonight.
SFX: crackle (x4)
2: It cleanses the mind.
4: By the way, papa,
SFX: ONE, TWO
5: I heard you're going to make a new company.
7: The Nemuri Corporation keeps making so much profit, I can't stop smiling!
8: And we managed to crush three other similar corporations while we were at it!
9: You do have an evil way of doing business... That's why people call you Taizou the demon.
10: You're one to talk, mama!
1: How many people have you helped for money, you evil lawyer?!
2: How rude! At least I'm actually helping them!
3: Tch! I can't believe how rotten
4: our parents are.
5: And what about you? I heard you beat up nine people at school the other day!
6: School violence!!
7: It was 10!
8: Just be quiet! It's embarrassing to know that I have a low-level bike gang member for a big sister!
9: And what's the name of your gang again? Pin Pan Pan?
10: Hey! Are you taking issue with my naming sense?
11: Boy oh boy...
12: That's enough!
13: If you keep this up, dinner will get cold!
2: Hey, Himeko, how have you been lately?
4: Yeah, did you do anything?
5: Extortion, drugs, or something?
6: Yes! I've finally finished my special menu - foie gras and sweet and sour pork, matched with Himeko style sweet and spicy tofu!
7: Hmm... You really outdid yourself again...
10: I saved a drowning child,
letter: Thank you
letter 2: Award
11: so I got awards. One from the police and one from the principal. Oh, and another from the PTA.
12: And this,
13: and this, and that.
2: I've never seen anything like this...
3: You're really something else! You're a good cook, you help people... How are you able to do all that?!
4: I can only ever do bad things!
6: You're such a good girl, Himeko!
box 3: Himeko is the black sheep of the Nemuri family.
7: I have a question about something, Momotaro.
8: My name is Momota Tarou.
9: That'll be 2,000 yen, paid upfront.
2: Thanks! So? What kind of question is it?
5: Goodbye! I know what happens to people who get involved with the Nemuri family!
6: But I already paid!
8: OK, I'll listen...
9: This is work, this is work...
10: I feel alienated.
11: I've sort of felt this way ever since I was young...
12: Like I'm different from the rest of my family members.
1: M... Meaning?
2: I can't do normal things like they can.
3: For example, cooking, cleaning... saving drowning kids...
4: Oh my. Those are all wonderful things!
5: But people of the Nemuri family can only do bad things!
6: Hey! Momota's talking with Nemuri!
8: Oh no! That means he'll be here soon!
9: I-I've heard the rumors...
10: What a frightening... err, complicated family...
13: He's here!
2: He's here!
3: It's Kiyoshirou!
4: You heard right. That girl is the only good person in the Nemuri family.... which means she's our treasure.
5: A germ like you
6: needs to stay 5 meters away from her at all times!
8: If he goes that far away, I won't be able to talk to him!
9: You shouldn't talk to him!!
10: But I want to!!
11: Use that.
12: A string phone...
2: I'd like to hear a bit more about your problem.
3: Oh, really? Are you sure it's OK, though? My brother might come back...
4: It'll be fine.
5: Honestly, I've gotten a bit intrigued...
6: About what?
8: Am I really that strange?
9: That's not what I meant...
2: We're going home, Himeko.
4: You don't have time to waste on a guy like that. C'mon!
5: Grandpa's supposed to come over tonight.
SFX: rattle x4
6: I'm home! Is grandpa here?
7: W-welcome home! Umm...
8: H-he just left, actually! He was in quite a mood!
SFX: shiver x3
9: Where's papa?!
10: Dad, are you OK?!
4: Th-that mad old fart!
5: When he heard about you, he lost his temper.
6: About me?!
7: Taizou! What kind of an upbringing have you given Himeko?!
8: Are you going to let my precious granddaughter go to waste?!
9: He said that in order to give you a proper upbringing, he was going to take you home with him...
last box: A proper upbringing? What does that mean? Is this to say that I haven't grown up the way he wants me to?
1: That the current me
2: isn't fit to be a member of the Nemuri family?
7: What happened to your clothes and your hair? And your makeup!!
8: What? You got a problem with it?
1: Just kidding! Do I look more evil now?
2: Ahahaha! This is embarrassing!
3: Turn yourself back to normal!
4: Who cares what your grandpa thinks? You're best when you're acting like the real you!
5: Oh, really?
6: Idealistic crap like that isn't gonna work this time!
box 5: I won't let my grandpa get angry at my papa for raising me wrong. And I'm never going to go live with him! Besides...
box 6: I can be bad if I want to be!
11: Please answer the next que--
1: Why the hell should I, jackass?!
2: If you want to know the answer so bad, then do it yourself!
8: N-Nemuri... She used to be such a model student...
9: But just now, she threw her textbook at the teacher and called her a jackass!
10: Aaahhh! Our school's on the verge of collapse!
12: Just kill me now!
13: Oh well.
14: I'll just do the second problem. Here you need to use the second formula...
1: Why don't you just give up now?
2: Not yet! Hmph!
SFX: chatter x2
4: I'm a bit short on cash right now...
5: Oh! Is that you, Himeko?!
7: Yeah! it really is you! You have makeup on, so I didn't recognize you at first!
8: You could use a few makeup lessons. Here, I'll fix it for you.
10: Ooh! This rouge looks so pretty!
11: Doesn't it?
12: It looks so good on you, Himeko!
SFX: squeal x5
13: And if we do your hair up like this...
14: So cute!
15: They opened a new shop in Harajuku. Did you hear about it?
16: And then...
1: Bye now!
2: Let's all go somewhere later!
3: I thought you were trying to get money from them?
4: I was, but then...
SFX: HEE HEE HEE
6: Hey baby... Wanna hang out?
9: What? You have a kid?!
10: No! Wait!!
1: You got lost?
2: And so you carried him around all night
3: until you found his house?!
4: Don't get so down on yourself. You can't be good at everything, you know!
5: If only you knew how painful this was. I don't know what I'm going to do now.
6: I'll never be able to act like my siblings.
7: So what? Why do you have to be like them?
8: Like this
9: Umm, Nemuri, can you hear me?
10: Here's my advice as your counselor.
11: Why don't you try meeting with your grandpa and talking it over?
1: I came with you because I'm the one who gave you the idea, but wow... This is one beat-up temple!
2: Just who is your grandpa?
3: My mother's father. He's the CEO of a conglomerate.
4: Did you know that my family has demonic blood?
6: It's especially apparent with my grandpa, so you'd better prepare yourself.
SFX: rumble x4
5: Don't be afraid! Don't be afraid!
6: I came
7: to ask a favor of you today.
1: Please stop getting angry at my papa, grandpa.
2: It isn't his fault that I'm not acting like a proper member of the Nemuri family.
3: It's all my fault...
5: Hold on a moment!
6: When did I say you weren't acting like a proper member of the family?
7: Out of the lot of them, I think you're the only one
8: who's actually completely inherited our blood!
10: You should also have demonic powers, just like me!
1: All I need to do is puff some smoke, and a sparrow 300 meters high in the sky will come crashing down!
2: And all I need to do is lift a finger to drop a 60-floor building in an instant! I'm pretty good at dropping lightning!
3: I can... make fried rice in 30 seconds.
4: Wrong topic!!
5: It just seemed like he was letting your potential go to waste. That's why I got angry with him.
6: Did I misjudge the situation?
SFX: THUD x2
SFX: wheeze x3
9: Enough, enough! You can go home now. Anyway, just remember that you're a proper member of the family. No one ever said you didn't fit in!
10: Huh? Momotaro?
1: Are you OK?
SFX: pitter patter x3
2: Haa... I-I thought he was going to eat me alive...
3: Thanks, though! I feel so much better now.
4: I was really afraid that I wasn't a proper member of the family.
5: You sure look happy.
6: Tee hee...
box 5: She's so cute. Hard to believe she's the granddaughter of that demonic... (Well, he basically is a demon) grandfather!
7: Hey, Momotaro, how about coming over my house?
9: Let's eat dinner together!
10: I'm surprisingly good at cooking, you know!
11: I'm not trying to brag, but I oversee the entire kitchen at home!
2: Mind if we come too?
3: Wh-who are you people?
4: You're Nemuri Taizou's granddaughter, aren't you?
5: Who are you?
1: What took you so long?
2: Where's Himeko? Why isn't she home yet?!
3: She's never not come home before dinner time!
4: Something must have happened.
5: It's Nemuri. If this is a business call, then you'll have to wait. I'm busy now.
6: Mr. Nemuri?
7: We have your daughter.
8: If you want her back, then you need to pull out immediately from your new business venture.
9: You kidnapped
2: Where are you going?!
3: Isn't it obvious?!
4: To save Himeko!
5: You know where she is?
6: Hmph! Whenever a male gets within 5 meters of her,
7: I can intuitively find her!
SFX: rustle x3
8: Get ready.
SIGN: OX Vault
1: Hey, um, mister, what time is it?
3: 7:30? It's 30 minutes past diner time?!
4: This has never happened before!
5: What should I do? Everyone's probably really hungry...
6: I bet papa's about to starve! And mama and my sister are probably hysterical...
7: Tonight's menu was Shalyapin steak Himeko style!! I spent a week learning how to make it!
8: Nemuri! Calm down!
9: Shut up! We'll let you go once your father meets our demands!
10: Until then, you're gonna have to wait!
11: Can you just let me go for five minutes? My family's waiting for me to serve them dinner...
12: Why I oughtta...
13: I need to get home ASAP...
1: I need to get home!
SFX: rattle x5
3: the snow is getting heavier.
5: I'm going hoooome!
SFX: rattle x4
1: Where's Kiyoshirou? Why hasn't he called yet?
2: I can't wait any longer! I'm going out too!
4: You're safe! Himeko!
6: Umm... I... I don't think she's paying attention to anything... SFX: stagger
7: Who are you?
8: aside from...
1: making dinner...
SFX: slice slice slice
SFX: fwish fiwsh
SFX: wham wham wham
SFX: tok tok tok tok tok
SFX: wham wham wham wham
2: Sorry to keep you waiting.
3: Dinner is served!
5: You should have confidence in yourself! You really do have Nemuri blood in you! No, really, you're amazing!
1: ...Why do you say that?
3: When I started thinking about dinner, I gradually lost track of what was happening, and I don't really remember anything else.
4: A... haha...
box 3: I really got a crush on an unusual girl. Oh boy...
box 4: Maybe that demonic blood that's inside her has finally come up to the surface...
5: Time for the evening news. Tonight, at 7:30, the OX Vault suddenly exploded.
6: Just eat up for now! And thanks for everything, Momotaro!
7: Ahh... Umm... Err...
8: Hey, boss. I thought you said you could intuitively find her?
9: Shuddap. I'm hungry...
