KH2 manga: Chapter 3, "Sea-salt Ice Cream"

Disclaimer: The Kingdom Hearts 2 manga belongs to Square-Enix, Gangan Comics, Nomura Tetsuya, Amano Shiro, Tokyopop or whoever, and other assorted persons of great renown.

PAGE 01

ROXAS
Come out! Come out~!
It won't work, I guess...
Keyblade... huh?


ROXAS
What was that all about?


PAGE 02

[Chapter 3: Seasalt Ice Cream]

ROXAS
Ah.
I'm... sorry...
...?


PAGE 03

HAYNER
Oh~ You're laaate, Roxas!

ROXAS
Sorry, sorry!

OLETTE
Here, this one's yours, Roxas.

ROXAS
Thanks.

PENCE
This must be what they call 'the little joys.'

HAYNER
Hn?

PENCE
Everyone eating ice cream together like this.

HAYNER
Any time Pence is eating is a happy time for him, though.

PENCE
I'm trying to have a nice moment here!


PAGE 04

PENCE
If we could stay like this, with everyone together, forever, I think that would be nice... That's what I'm saying.

HAYNER
Not gonna happen.

PENCE
Ehhh!!

HAYNER
'Cause even the situation will change.
When we're grown up, we'll have to give up meeting like this every day.


PAGE 05

PENCE
When you put it that way, it sounds really lonely, doesn't it?
I wouldn't have expected something so cold from Hayner...

HAYNER
No, I was...
OKAY~!
Today we're all going to the beach!!

ROXAS
Eh~

OLETTE
So suddenly?!


PAGE 06

OLETTE
What about our homework?!

HAYNER
That's for after, after!
Are you gonna make us end the summer without ever having been to the beach?!

OLETTE
Oh, really...!

HAYNER
You really wanna go, don't you!
I can see it on your face.

OLETTE
That's not true!!

ROXAS
Haha~
AH.

HAYNER
What's wrong, Roxas?

ROXAS
Sorry, I don't... really have any money.


PAGE 07

ROXAS
The other day I bought a Moai tissue dispenser...
The tissues came out of its nose.
I wonder why I bought that......

OLETTE
There's the traveling expenses it would take too...

HAYNER
That's true...
Train fare to the ocean, and...
Yakisoba when we're there...

PENCE
And then ramen with the thick noodles, and...
Curry rice with nothing on the side, and...
Indian millet, Donel kebab... And some butter...

HAYNER
SHUT UP.
Leave everything to me, we'll be fine!!

PENCE
?


PAGE 08

STRUGGLE GUY
Even if you suddenly come up and say, "Give me a job..."

HAYNER
I'm begging you, sir!
We really need the money!

PENCE
When he said leave everything to me, I thought that was just bluster.

OLETTE
It is Hayner, so probably not.

ROXAS
Yeah...

HAYNER
Hey, guys, we've got a job!!
We've just gotta put up all these posters!

ROXAS
Struggle Battle?

PENCE?
That's right, that's already the day after tomorrow.


PAGE 09

OLETTE
Don't lose to Seifer's gang, you guys!

PENCE
(Isn't that too many?!)

HAYNER
As if we'd lose!!
Right, Roxas!!
The final match will be between the two of us.
And whoever wins it, we'll split the prize between us four!

PENCE
That's great!

OLETTE
Such confidence!

HAYNER
We can do it, right?
Since it's you and me.

ROXAS
Yeah.

HAYNER
All right!
It's a promise!


PAGE 10

HAYNER
How's thiiis!

ROXAS
I think we should put them up in more places...

DiZ
The ocean? Don't be stupid.
They cannot leave the town.
I could widen the area, but the enemy would have more entry points.
Go and prepare.


PAGE 11

DiZ
Don't develop feelings for that.
Keep our objective in sight.

OLETTE
Ta-da! Please bear witness to this!!


PAGE 12

OLETTE
The heft and weight of this munny pouch!
For our part-time job, we have been granted 5,000 munny!

HAYNER
YES~!

ROXAS & PENCE
*clapclap*

HAYNER
Just for a moment, let me touch this heft and weight, get a taste of it...

OLETTE
Roxas, look after it.
Don't let Hayner have it!

HAYNER
Hey!! Don't be like that!!

PENCE?
Ah~ Looks like the train will be coming any minute now.

HAYNER?
All right, let's hurry!!


PAGE 13

ROXAS
Uwa?!
! ~ow...
What the hell... A stick...?
?!
Y~...


PAGE 14

???
Can you feel Sora?

ROXAS
...eh?

HAYNER
Heeey!
Roxas, you okay?!

ROXAS
! Huh...

HAYNER & OLETTE
??

ROXAS
What~?


PAGE 15

HAYNER
Tickets for four boys and girls!
Roxas, the money.

ROXAS
Mm... Ah? What? It's gone!

Others
Eh?!?

HAYNER
You're kidding, right?

OLETTE
What happened?

ROXAS
......it was that guy...!!
I'll go find him!
I don't think he can have gotten very far yet!


PAGE 17

HAYNER
That guy?
You were alone when you tripped, right...?

PENCE
Ah... the train left.

HAYNER
Today's no good then.

ROXAS
......
...no way.


PAGE 18

HAYNER?
Maybe... when Roxas tripped, someone came by and picked it up.

ROXAS
Um~ Sorry.

OLETTE
We said it's okay.
With the posters, if you hadn't helped us fix them, we wouldn't have gotten the money anyway, Roxas...

PENCE
Right, right.
Right now, we're just tasting another of the little joys, aren't we?


PAGE 18

HAYNER
In a way, we've made an awesome memory.
We'll make lots of them like this. Memories!
Because even if we can't wish things would stay this way forever,
it's like we can remember this whenever we want.


PAGE 19

PENCE
Meh, this doesn't suit you.

HAYNER
Shut it!!

Flashback: ???
Can you feel Sora?


PAGE 20

ROXAS
Sora...
It's like since I've been having these dreams of you,
only weird things keep happening to me.
Who are you...?


PAGE 21

???
Since you said we can't let them go to the beach...
Did we really have to go this far?

DiZ
Delete that and get ready.

???
What about the movements of those Organization bastards?

DiZ
They are quiet things.
Searching for his image, perhaps...
In any case, Namine had better hurry up.


PAGE 22

NAMINE
...Sora.


PAGE 23

Note
Today we're going to the beach, so meet us at the station!!
--Hayner and the rest

OLETTE
Ah, Roxas!


PAGE 24

OLETTE
Hayner got 5,000 munny from one of his uncles!
So today we're going to the beach!

ROXAS
Really?! That's grea~...
?
What's up...
?!


PAGE 25

GIRL?
Good afternoon, Roxas.
Come to the haunted mansion.


PAGE 26

GIRL?
And I'll tell you.
All the things you want to know...




Page 07: In case anyone is wondering, Roxas's ridiculous Moai tissue dispenser is the KH equivalent of 3,000 yen -- or, roughly, thirty American dollars. Even Roxas can't imagine why he'd spend that much money on that thing.

Page 08: Donel kebabs are in fact a real food, in case anyone was wondering. It's a food that the Japanese are fond of, what seems at first glance to be some kind of meat slathered in the sauce of your choice and grilled, apparently big at festivals. If you don't believe us, Google it! Or enjoy this random link: Donel Kebab!

Page 11: Yes, DiZ really does say "that," as if Roxas is a piece of furniture. He frequently refers to Nobodies as furniture, in fact!

Page 21: See page 11 for the note on "They are quiet things."

Page 21: DiZ's line, translated as "Delete that and get ready," specifically implies that the deletion itself is a preparation for something, but what exactly is being prepared for is not mentioned.
