(0)
Difficulty: 0

Nanbu: DON'T LEAN TOO FAR FORWARD.

NOT TOO FAR BACK, EITHER.

( Aragaki grunting )

Nanbu: SPLIT YOUR WEIGHT EVENLY, 50-50.

THAT'S THE FORM YOU NEED TO PRACTICE UNTIL IT'S NATURAL...

FOR TOMORROW.

WE'RE DOING THIS FOR TOMORROW, ARAGAKI.

( crowd cheering )

- ( Joe gasping ) - Computer: TWO, THREE,

- FOUR, FIVE... - ( Nanbu gasping )

Aragaki: THERE'S A LOT TO MAKE UP FOR, THINGS I'VE LOST,

SO IT'S TIME YOU PAID YOUR PART OF THE DEBT IN FULL.

- ( Nanbu growls ) - Computer: NINE...

Nanbu: HUH?

( crowd cheering )

Sachio: JOE!

Joe: HEY, WHO ARE YOU LOOKING AT?

I'M THE ONE YOU GOTTA BEAT HERE.

DID YOU FORGET?

( singing in Japanese )

( overlapping chatter )

Man: KICK HIS ASS, ARAGAKI!

Man #2: PUT HIM OUT OF HIS MISERY, WILL YOU?

Sachio: POPS, ISN'T THERE SOMETHING JOE CAN DO?

YOU TRAINED ARAGAKI, DIDN'T YOU?

YOU SHOULD KNOW HIS WEAKNESSES LIKE THE BACK OF YOUR HAND.

Nanbu: I FIGURED THIS WOULD HAPPEN.

ARAGAKI'S PUSHED HIS MEGALO-BOXING

UP TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL.

LOOK AT THE SPRING OF HIS PROSTHETICS IN HIS FOOTWORK.

HE MIGHT NOT HAVE A TON OF POWER,

BUT HE CAN SEND COUNTERS FLYING

AS SOON AS HIS OPPONENT'S FINISHED PUNCHING HIM.

JOE, THERE MIGHT BE NO WAY TO WIN THIS.

Man #1: HEY, WE CAME TO SEE A FIGHT!

THIS IS NO TIME FOR A SLOW DANCE!

Man #3: HEY! QUIT SCREWING AROUND,

AND FIGHT LIKE A MAN!

Nanbu: YEAH, THAT'S IT, JOE.

HOLD ON TIGHT, AND DON'T LET HIM GO!

( crowd laughing )

Sachio: I CAN'T WATCH THIS, POPS.

( Joe panting )

- ( Joe gasps ) - ( horn blows )

( crowd cheering )

( Joe panting )

Nanbu: GOOD JOB OUT THERE.

BUT THAT'S ENOUGH.

EVEN IF YOU GO ALL OUT, YOU CAN'T WIN THIS FIGHT.

MAKING SURE HIS BOXER LEAVES THE RING ALIVE

IS PART OF A TRAINER'S JOB.

Sachio: WAIT. YOU WANNA FORFEIT?

Nanbu: LISTEN, JOE, YOU GOTTA TRUST ME.

IF WE DON'T STOP NOW, YOU MIGHT BE HURT TOO BAD

TO COMPETE FOR MEGALONIA AGAIN.

I CAN GET YOU ANOTHER MATCH IN NO TIME.

WHAT? AAH!

LET ME GO.

Joe: I RECALL YOU SAYING THIS TRAIN HASN'T GOT ANY STOPS.

REMEMBER?

Nanbu: YEAH, BUT LISTEN.

Joe: I'M GOING AS FAR AS I CAN. TRY TO STOP ME,

- AND YOU'LL BE GETTING OFF. - ( Nanbu groans )

Joe: AND IF YOU CAN'T DO ANY OF THAT,

THEN JUST SHUT UP, AND WATCH WHAT HAPPENS

( Nanbu groans )

EH? HEY! GIMME THAT!

Sachio: AFTER ALL, WE'RE A TEAM, RIGHT?

Trainer: GREAT WORK. YOU'VE SET THE PACE.

- Nanbu: SUIT YOURSELF. - Trainer: JUST KEEP IT UP.

- ( horn blowing ) - ( Joe grunts )

SPLIT IT EVENLY, 50-50.

Nanbu: HUH? THAT SON OF A...

NOW THE KID STARTS DOING WHAT I TOLD HIM TO DO?

( Aragaki gasps )

Joe: SPLIT IT EVENLY, FIFTY-FIFTY.

( Aragaki gasps )

WHATEVER. THAT'S NOT GONNA HELP AGAINST ME.

( Sachio gasps )

Referee: HE'S DOWN!

- Computer: ONE, TWO... - Nanbu: LISTEN!

DON'T WORRY ABOUT HOW IT'S LOOKIN', JOE!

YOU GOTTA STAY CLOSE TO HIM SO HIS SPEED WON'T BE A FACTOR.

IF IT GETS DANGEROUS, GO AHEAD AND CLINCH!

JUST HANG IN THERE!

Joe: YOU'RE THE ONE WHO SAID

STRATEGY WASN'T GONNA HELP, POPS.

( Nanbu growls )

JOE, DAMN IT.

WHAT THE HELL IS HE THINKING?!

Sachio: DON'T YOU SEE?

JOE WANTS TO WIN USING WHAT YOU TAUGHT HIM.

( Nanbu grumbles )

- ( horn blows ) - ( crowd cheering )

( Joe chuckling )

Trainer: DON'T WASTE TIME TOYING WITH HIM.

FINISH HIM IN THE NEXT ROUND.

Nanbu: DON'T LEAN TOO FAR FORWARD.

NOT TOO FAR BACK, EITHER.

50-50. SPLIT YOUR WEIGHT EVENLY.

THAT'S THE FORM YOU NEED TO PRACTICE UNTIL IT'S NATURAL.

Nanbu: SPLIT IT EVENLY, 50-50.

( panting )

( Nanbu laughs )

PRETTY ROUGH, ISN'T IT?

ALMOST MAKES YOU WANNA QUIT MEGALO-BOXING, HUH?

YOU SPLIT YOUR WEIGHT EVENLY, 50-50.

NO MATTER HOW TOUGH THINGS ARE NOW, IF YOU HOLD YOUR FORM,

TOMORROW WILL BE WAITING FOR YOU.

TOMORROW, ARAGAKI. MAKING IT TO TOMORROW IS ALL YOU NEED.

Trainer: HEY, ARAGAKI, ARE YOU LISTENING TO ME?

( Aragaki chuckles ) YEAH, I'M LISTENING.

I PUT HIM DOWN IN THE NEXT ROUND.

( Joe groans )

Nanbu: HE'S GOT YOU COMPLETELY FIGURED OUT, KID.

PLUS, HE'S GOT THE ADVANTAGE IN SPEED AND TECHNIQUE.

YOU CAN'T BEAT HIM.

IT'S OVER. YOU KNOW IT.

AT THIS POINT, ALL HE WANTS TO DO

IS MAKE SURE I WATCH HIM BEAT THE LIVIN' HELL OUT OF YOU,

- SO WHY D-- - Joe: I'M NOT SO SURE.

AT FIRST, I THOUGHT THE SAME THING,

BUT, YOU KNOW...

THAT MIGHT NOT BE IT.

Nanbu: HUH? HMM?

Joe: YEAH, HE'S ON A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT LEVEL

THAN THE OTHER GUYS I'VE FOUGHT,

BUT I THINK HE'S IN THE RING FOR THE SAME REASON I AM,

TO WIN THIS FIGHT.

( horn blowing )

AND IF THAT'S THE CASE,

THERE'S NO WAY IN HELL I'M GONNA RUN AWAY.

( Gear clanks )

Nanbu: ARAGAKI...

IF THIS ISN'T ABOUT REVENGE ON ME,

THEN WHAT THE HELL IS THIS ABOUT?

Aragaki: I'VE DECIDED TO RUIN HIM.

Nanbu: EH?

Aragaki: THIS NEW FIGHTER

THAT YOU'VE BEEN SO CAREFULLY DEVELOPING.

( Nanbu gasps )

Joe: WHAT'S WRONG?

THOSE LEGS LOW ON OIL OR SOMETHING? ( chuckles )

YOU AIN'T GONNA RUIN ME LIKE THIS.

( Aragaki growls )

( Sachio gasps )

Nanbu: JOE, I'M SORRY,

BUT YOU'VE GOT IT WRONG.

IT WAS A MISTAKE TO ACCEPT THIS FIGHT.

( Joe groans )

Nanbu: NO, LETTING HIM SHIP OFF TO THAT WAR

AND NOT BELIEVING HE'D COME BACK ALIVE,

THAT'S THE MISTAKE I MADE.

I WAS WRONG.

I WAS WRONG ABOUT ALL OF IT.

I'VE BEEN RUNNING FROM IT.

JOE...

YOU DON'T NEED TO PAY FOR WHAT I'VE DONE.

( crowd cheering )

Trainer: IT'S OVER.

Referee: DOWN!

Computer: ONE, TWO, THREE,

FOUR, FIVE...

Nanbu: JOE, ENOUGH! STAY DOWN!

Computer: SEVEN, EIGHT, NINE...

Joe: YOU GOT IT ALL WRONG, POPS.

I DON'T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED IN THE PAST.

THIS GUY'S IN MY WAY,

SO I'M GONNA BEAT HIM.

Aragaki: WHY?

STAY DOWN!

Joe: SPLIT IT EVENLY, 50-50.

Aragaki: HUH? ( growls )

Joe: SPLIT IT EVENLY, 50-50.

Aragaki: SHUT YOUR MOUTH!

Joe: 50-50, SPLIT IT EVENLY.

Aragaki: THAT'S ENOUGH!

SHUT THE HELL UP!

( both gasp )

- ( crowd cheering ) - Referee: HE'S DOWN!

( all gasp )

( Joe chuckles )

Computer: ONE, TWO, THREE,

FOUR, FIVE...

( crowd cheering )

Computer: TWO, THREE,

- FOUR... - Sachio: NO WAY. HE DID IT!

- Computer: FIVE... - Trainer: ARAGAKI! GET UP!

Computer: SIX, SEVEN,

EIGHT...

- ( Joe chuckles ) - ( crowd cheering )

( Nanbu chuckles )

I GET IT NOW.

( horn blows )

OKAY, BREATHE DEEP.

( Joe inhales )

Nanbu: YOU'RE OFF BALANCE AND LETTING YOUR GUARD DROP.

IT'S WHEN YOU'RE WORN OUT LIKE THIS,

YOU GOTTA REMEMBER THE BASICS.

Joe: SO I'M GUESSING YOU THINK I'VE GOT A CHANCE NOW?

Nanbu: YEAH. BET YOUR ASS I DO.

Trainer: DON'T LET IT GET TO YOU.

IT WAS A LUCKY PUNCH.

- Aragaki: NO. - Trainer: HMM?

Aragaki: HE WAS WAITING FOR IT,

AND HE DIDN'T LET HIS CHANCE SLIP PAST.

PLUS HE KEPT UP HIS STANCE ON TOP OF IT.

Trainer: MAYBE, BUT HE'S TOO LATE.

STUBBORNNESS IS WHAT KEEPS HIM STANDING.

GO AFTER HIM. CRUSH HIM. BREAK HIS SPIRIT.

( horn blows )

Nanbu: GOTTA SAY, THAT KID'S A REAL PIECE OF WORK.

JOE UNDERSTOOD EVERYTHING.

HE ACTUALLY UNDERSTOOD IT,

ALL THE STUFF HE WAS PRACTICING EVERY DAY,

BUILDING ONTO HIS CORE, WOULD EVENTUALLY

BREAK OUT OF ITS SHELL AND BEAR SOME REAL FRUIT.

Joe: 50-50, SPLIT IT EVENLY.

Trainer: KEEP IT UP! THAT'S IT! YOU'RE WEARIN' HIM DOWN!

Aragaki: WHY?!

Nanbu: JOE'S AS DURABLE AS THEY COME.

HE MANAGED TO SURVIVE FIGHT AFTER FIGHT

IN THE UNDERGROUND RING

WITH GEAR THAT WAS BASICALLY USELESS.

HIS BODY MAY TAKE A BEATING, BUT HIS SPIRIT WON'T BE BROKEN.

RIGHT NOW, THE KID'S LIKE A RED-HOT PIECE OF IRON.

THE MORE HE'S HIT, THE TOUGHER HE GETS.

( clank )

( Aragaki groans )

Sachio: WOW, LOOK AT HIM GO!

( Nanbu gasps )

( Joe chuckles )

Nanbu: WE'RE DOING THIS FOR TOMORROW, ARAGAKI.

Trainer: THIS MATCH IS JUST SO YOU CAN MOVE UP.

YOU UNDERSTAND ME?

- ARAGAKI! - ( Aragaki gasps )

- ( clanks ) - ( groans )

Man: GO! GET HIM!

( Joe sighs )

- ( horn blowing ) - ( crowd cheering )

( Joe sighs )

( Aragaki sighs )

Nanbu: DOES IT HURT?

( Joe winces ) NOT ENOUGH TO BOTHER ME.

Man #2: FIGHT ALREADY! COME ON!

Aragaki: FOR TOMORROW...

- Trainer: HUH? - Aragaki: RIGHT?

( sighs )

COACH MIYAGI...

- ( horn blowing ) - Nanbu: OKAY.

( all gasp )

( crowd murmuring )

Man #3: COME ON. I GOT MONEY ON THIS.

Man #4: LET'S GO. FIGHT.

Nanbu: HUH?

Woman: GET UP, ALREADY. COME ON! LET'S FIGHT!

( horn blowing )

Referee: ARAGAKI HAS FORFEITED THE MATCH.

WINNER BY TKO AT THE CONCLUSION OF THE FOURTH ROUND IS...

"GEARLESS" JOE!

( crowd cheering )

Sachio: DID WE WIN?

Nanbu: YEAH.

Sachio: JOE!

WE WON! WE WON!

JOE, WE WON THE FIGHT!

- Joe: WE WON? - Sachio: WHOO-HOO!

- ( Joe chuckles ) - Sachio: YOU'RE AMAZING, JOE!

- Joe: WE DID IT. - Man #5: "GEARLESS" JOE!

- Nanbu: AHH! - Man #6: "GEARLESS" JOE!

ARAGAKI, WAY TO GO!

( leg scraping )

Aragaki: I'M SORRY, COACH.

- Miyagi: NO NEED TO APOLOGIZE. - Aragaki: HUH?

Miyagi: DID YOU THINK I HADN'T NOTICED?

IF YOU HADN'T SPOKEN UP,

THEN I WAS GONNA STOP THE FIGHT MYSELF.

LISTEN. I'M YOUR TRAINER.

THE LAST THING I WANT

IS FOR MY FIGHTER NEVER TO BE ABLE TO WALK AGAIN.

THERE'S NOTHING TO BE ASHAMED OF.

THAT WAS A HELL OF A FIGHT TO GO OUT ON.

( door opens )

Aragaki: YOU CAME.

EVERYBODY, CLEAR OUT.

Nanbu: I APPRECIATE IT.

Aragaki: NO PROBLEM.

Nanbu: SO YOU WERE INJURED.

Aragaki: YEAH. THE DOCTORS SAID I RISKED BEING BEDRIDDEN

FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE BY PUSHING IT SO HARD OUT THERE,

BUT I HAD A DIFFICULT TIME LETTING GO.

WHEN I HEARD ABOUT WHAT YOU AND JOE WERE DOING,

I THOUGHT IT'D BE A GOOD WAY TO GO OUT

FOR ALL OF IT, AN END TO EVERYTHING.

BUT THEN, WHEN I ACTUALLY SAW YOU AGAIN

AFTER ALL THOSE YEARS APART,

I WASN'T SURE WHAT I WANTED TO DO.

I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO FIGURE THAT ALL OUT

SINCE THAT DAY WE SPOKE IN THE PARK.

Nanbu: AND DID YOU?

( Aragaki chuckles )

JOE TOLD ME SOMETHING.

"BLAME WHOEVER YOU WANT,

BUT IN THE END, A MAN MAKES HIS OWN CALLS."

I CHOSE THE PATH THAT LED ME HERE.

I CAN'T RESENT ANYONE FOR THAT.

THAT INCLUDES YOU.

I HOLD NO ILL WILL.

I'M GONNA MOVE ON.

FOR ME, TOMORROW STARTS TODAY.

I MADE IT THIS FAR ON THESE LEGS...

AND THAT'S-- THAT SHOULD BE FAR ENOUGH,

SHOULDN'T IT, COACH?

Nanbu: YEAH.

IT WAS GOOD TO SEE YOUR MEGALO-BOXING.

YOU WERE AMAZING.

( Aragaki shudders )

WOULD YOU MIND...

GIVING THIS TO JOE FOR ME?

Nanbu: YOU--YOU HELD ON TO THIS?

( Aragaki sighs )

I, UH--I SHIP OUT TOMORROW.

Nanbu: I SEE.

HERE.

Aragaki: WHAT IS THIS?

Nanbu: ARAGAKI, I WAS HOPING TO TREAT YOU

TO A NICE DINNER BEFORE YOU SHIPPED OUT,

SO I BET ALL THE CASH I HAD, HOPING FOR AN UPSET.

BUT GUESS WHAT. I LOST IT ALL.

THINK OF IT AS A GOOD-LUCK CHARM.

HOPEFULLY IT'LL KEEP YOU FROM GETTING SHOT.

LEAVE YOUR LOCKER THE WAY IT IS.

THIS IS YOUR HOME.

REMEMBER THAT, OKAY?

I'LL BE WAITING FOR YOU.

Aragaki: RIGHT.

THAT TICKET...

HONESTLY, IT SAVED MY LIFE.

( sobbing )

( wailing )

YOU'LL MAKE IT TO MEGALONIA, RIGHT?

Nanbu: EH?

YEAH.

Aragaki: TELL JOE SOMETHING FOR ME.

TELL HIM I BELIEVE IN HIM, TOO.

( Joe inhales )

( sighs )

( crowd cheering )

( fanfare playing )

Yukiko: TONIGHT WE'LL BE ANNOUNCING THE THIRD COMPETITOR

TO GAIN ENTRY INTO THE MEGALONIA TOURNAMENT.

YURI, PEPE IGLESIAS, AND NOW...

( lion roars )

Announcer: WITH THE KILLER BOMB CREW...

GLEN BURROUGHS!

( audience murmuring )

Yukiko: MR. BURROUGHS'S THUNDEROUS FIGHTING STYLE

IS A SIGHT TO BEHOLD, AND IT'S EARNED HIM

THE INFAMOUS NICKNAME OF "BLOODY LION."

THIS POWERFUL HEAVYWEIGHT FIGHTER

HAS MANAGED TO DISTINGUISH HIMSELF IN MEGALO-BOXING,

WHERE MIDDLEWEIGHT FIGHTERS TYPICALLY HAVE THE ADVANTAGE.

Announcer: LET'S GIVE IT UP FOR GLEN BURROUGHS!

( applause )

Reporter: THERE'S LESS THAN A MONTH UNTIL MEGALONIA BEGINS.

WHEN WILL THE LAST FIGHTER BE ANNOUNCED,

AND WHAT WILL THE CRITERIA BE?

Yukiko: AFTER A COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW,

WE'LL PUBLICLY ANNOUNCE THAT COMPETITOR.

Reporter #2: WHAT ARE THE CHANCES

OF "GEARLESS" JOE ENTERING?

HE RECENTLY DEFEATED ARAGAKI,

A FAVORITE TO CLAIM THE LAST SLOT.

Yukiko: WELL...

AS I'VE SAID BEFORE, MEGALONIA IS OPEN TO ALL.

I ASSURE YOU, ONCE THE LAST FIGHTER HAS BEEN SELECTED,

YOU WILL ALL BE INFORMED.

Mikio: YOU LOOK BORED OUT HERE, YURI.

Yuri: MIKIO.

Mikio: TOUGH LUCK FOR MR. BURROUGHS.

INSTEAD OF GETTING HIS MOMENT IN THE SPOTLIGHT,

THE MEDIA FOCUSED ON SOMEONE ELSE.

Yuri: HMM?

HE'S DOING IT.

Mikio: YUKIKO TOLD ME ALL ABOUT IT.

IT SEEMS LIKE YOU TWO HAVE SOME UNFINISHED BUSINESS,

THE MYSTERY FIGHTER WHO MEGALOBOXES

WITHOUT ANY ENHANCEMENTS, "GEARLESS" JOE.

HE'S QUITE POPULAR.

Yuri: JOE.

Mikio: BUT THAT WILL SOON COME TO AN END.

MEGALONIA IS NO PLACE FOR STRAY DOGS LIKE HIM.
