A translation of a short and cute dialogue segment on the official website for Digimon Adventure 02‘s first movie (technically a pair of movies), Digimon Hurricane Touchdown!!/Transcendent Evolution! The Golden Digimentals. (Original text can be found here and here.)
The story moves to America, of all places! But…?
Iori: Daisuke-san, it looks like our next adventure is set in America.
Daisuke: Yeah! Whether it’s America or Antartica, I’d go anywhere for Hikari-chan!
Miyako: But how do we get to America? You’re not saying we’re gonna walk there, are you?
Daisuke: We’re gonna have to go with spirit! We’ll pull anything off if we’ve got spirit! Right, Chibimon?
Chibimon: Yeah! I think so too, Daisuke!
Miyako: I’m telling you, you can’t just…(sigh)
Chibimon: Hey, by the way, Daisuke…
Daisuke: Hm? What’s up, Chbimon?
Chibimon: Is New York further than Chiba is?1
Daisuke and his friends, ever so slightly worried about the future…
Please look forward to their fun-filled and eventful journey.
Takeru and Hikari are waiting for everyone in America.
But the all-important group of Daisuke and his friends is…?
Takeru: Hikari-chan, have Daisuke-kun and the others still not arrived?
Hikari: Not yet. They sent me an email a while ago saying they’d arrived in America. But…
Patamon: But what?
Tailmon: Looks like they’re hitchhiking here.
Tailmon: Goodness, this is an emergency, it’s no time for them to be playing around…
Hikari: They can’t do anything else about it, there’s certain things going on. If it all goes well, we’ll be able to meet up soon…Ah! See, look, I got another email!
Patamon: What’s it say?
Hikari: They said…they missed the destination.
Traveling back and forth across the vast country of America…
When…will they finally all be able to meet safely?
- Tokyo and Chiba are around 40 kilometers (25 miles) apart. Needless to say, New York is definitely further.
