Kamikaze

- by Ragnar Brynjúlfsson © 2006

A short comic that takes place in Japan towards the end of the second World War.

Notes!

Originally this story was supposed to be 9 pages, but I quickly found it wasn't really working out the way I wanted to. I should have spent more time on the script. I finished it early, and must admit I'm not really happy with it, except for the drawings of the airplane. :)

runway

A young Japanese is getting ready for take-of in his Zero airplane during WWII.

Pilot

(thinking)

I want to die. I have nothing to live for. I'm ready.

I'm not dying for my emperor and country. We're loosing the war, it would be pointless.

I'm dying for him, so that he may know my love.

The plane takes of, with the pilot shedding a silent tear.

Flashback

Flashback to some time earlier. A young man, Nanahara, is walking away.

Pilot

(shouting)

Nanahara! WAIT!

Nanahara stops, and looks around.

Pilot

Where are you going?

Nanahara

I'm leaving, going up north.

Nanahara keeps walking.

Pilot

Why?

Nanahara

I'm old enough, that's why. They'll want ot recruit me at the "meeting" tomrrow, and I don't want to die!

Pilot

What about me?

Nanahara

You'll be fine. You're too young. They're not recruiting little kids yet!

Pilot

That's not what I meant. I...

Suddenly two soldiers show up on the horizon.

Soldier

HEY! You there!

Nanahara

Delay them for me, please!

Nanahara runs away as fast as he can go.

PILOT

....love you.
