Highschool of the Dead (2010) s01e04 Episode Script

Running in the Dead

1 I was up late the night before the world as I knew it came crashing down.
Yureta Genjitsukan Nakushita mama de As I lose my already shaken touch with reality, Gareki no Youni Tsumikasanaru my emotions pile up like fallen debris Kono Kanshou wa Doko e Yuku Where do they think they're going? With my crushed hope in tow, Tsuieta Kibou Kakae Akai Ame o Harai Hashitta Muchuu ni I ran straight through the bloody rain Kuzureta Kanjou no Hate ni After my emotions come spilling out, Nani o Miru what will I see? Nani ga Aru What will I have? I still don't know Mada Shiranai Hakanai Subete no Minori wa But in this silence, Tada Muon ni Me no Mae ni all of the shallow things I could gain Hirogari Tsudzuketa lie endlessly before me Are you stupid? Takagi You always run off to the same spot whenever you have a problem.
It's like you're a little kid.
Yeah Until then, everything had been normal.
It's only the beginning of the semester.
There I was out in the sunshine having a great time telling myself that out of all of the 2nd year students in the world, I was the 4th most miserable one.
But at that time, everything was more or less over.
Woah, Tejima-sensei! Don't resort to violence Looking back on it, we should've just made our way outside.
Instead, we scrambled to the observatory.
Back then, it seemed like the best thing to do.
Re-- Rei! Why Why is this happening? There must be a reason.
If we knew the reason, we could figure out what to do.
Hisashi is always right.
I wanted to believe that too.
But I had this gut feeling that our world had already fallen apart.
So I Gotcha! Eat this! Yeah During that time, it was too risky for us to think that the world was still normal.
Go away! Then it hit me.
We were walking through our school hallway carrying weapons and expecting to face danger.
It wasn't a hallway anymore.
I'm sick of these things! I want my mom! Yeah This is the country of the dead.
Do you think someone will come and help us? No.
But why? How can you say that? Remember the helicopters we saw from the school rooftop this afternoon? It's the same deal.
No one can be bothered to help us.
In fact, we might never Never? We might never get any help? Then how are we going to make it through this?! We just have to do what we can.
That's just the situation we're in.
You're always like this You always say the wrong thing at the wrong time.
You've been like this since kindergarten I was just stating the truth! So?! You could say it different-- We should go.
Yeah Should we act only in our own self-interest, we stand not a chance.
Let us act as a team.
Let's go! Our actions at the time meant that we were ready to take on the real problem and fight these animated pieces of flesh.
We ran through our school that was filled with noises, screams, life and death.
They're not humans.
They're not humans anymore! It's dangerous outside! Don't get out of your car under any circumstances! I repeat! Don't get out of your car under any circumstances! We progress at roughly one kilometer an hour.
I wonder if we can even make it over the bridge before morning at this rate? Oh shut up! Put a lid on it! Put a lid on it? But I'm hungry There there.
We're safe in here.
We'll be okay.
Sensei There's nothing to worry about.
We'll be oka~ay.
Well that's that.
I've become the leader based on a majority vote.
Rei! Screw it! No way in hell am I going to be anywhere near him! Wait! You just have to put up with him until we get to the city.
Didn't I tell you that you'd regret this?! Look, now's not Dr.
Marikawa! In other words, I didn't know yet that this world had already ended.
Komuro-kun! Are the two of you unharmed? The police station! We'll meet at the East Police Station.
At what time? 7 PM! If it doesn't work out today, then we'll try again tomorrow! There's no one here.
Either they ran away, or they died.
If they died, they'd be walking around! Then they went to chase after living people Look, Takashi! License? Nope.
Helmets? Nope.
Bike? Stolen.
He's gonna arrest us.
Don't tell me you're afraid of a police car after beating up so many of them.
Of course I'm not.
Are you serious? Rei! There's gas leaking from the car.
Don't get close! We might find something useful.
What are you staring at? You should help too! Do you know how to use a gun? I've seen some cop shows.
You only put your finger on the trigger when you want to shoot, right? Is something wrong? It feels kinda heavy.
Well duh.
It's not a toy.
I only have five shots? Here, Takashi.
It's from the other officer.
His gun wasn't in working condition, but you can still use the bullets.
Wow, I'm amazed.
I've seen the one my dad uses.
And do you think I'd be afraid of blood after what we've gone through? Wanna throw these away? Guns aren't exactly reliable if you don't know how to aim.
But you feel a bit safer now, don't you? Self-Serve I wonder if they still have some gas.
Every gas station has at least enough gas to fill up 1,000 cars.
I'm sure they do.
Shit.
What is it? This is a self-serve station.
We need to slide a card or put in some cash.
Then do it.
I bought a juice earlier I only have 30 yen left.
You suck.
Well excuse me for not being Hisashi! What the hell's your problem? When did I ever compare you with Hisashi? You told me that I suck.
That would mean there's someone awesome to compare me against! You're obviously thinking of Hisashi! You suck so much.
What do you want? Cash! Can I borrow some? Well, my purse is back in my bag.
What, and you just told me that I suck? Wait right here.
Just scream if something happens.
Is anyone here? Like that would open it Well, I've always wanted to try this.
What was that? Wow, sounds like someone's having fun I should probably quit giving him a hard time Rei? Hey! Stop moving! Rei, what's wrong? Hey bro! Your girl is pretty cute! Let her go! You dumb? Like hell I'd do that.
If I want to survive in this monster filled world, I need a woman.
Are you insane? Am I insane? Damn right I am! My family all turned into those things right in front of me! I I had to smash every single one of their heads! My father, my mother, my grandmother, my little brother Even my sister, who's still in grade school! How the fuck could I stay sane? Takashi! Rei! Her tits and her voice are mighty fine! And these are p-pretty big.
Hey You fuck her, right? Every night, don't you? Or wait You don't? Are you an idiot?! Takashi! Hey, toss me that bat! If you don't, she's dead.
And I'm taking your bike.
It's out of gas.
You busted the cash register! You've got tons of money! Refill the damn thing! Please place your hand on a resistive seat before you begin.
Hey Can you let us go? We're on our way to see if our parents are safe.
Weren't you listening to a thing I said?! If they're in town, then your parents met the same fate as mine! Done.
Then go! Just go! Hey, can you— Shut up! Do you want me to kill you too?! Hey, please— Shut up! Or I'll seriously fucking kill you! I've never fired a gun before, but I can't miss at point-blank range.
Wh-What if it ignites the gasoline? It's a lot better than giving you my girl.
FUCK! Bl-Blood BLOOD! How dare you Don't do it, Rei.
But! We don't have time to deal with him.
After all That noise we made was loud.
Hey! You're just gonna leave? You're gonna leave me here? Come on! Help me! Please, help me! Hey! Hey Kuyami ga Owaru to Once the sorrow dissipates, buds sprout out of the darkness and begin to grow Kuraku Yodomu Ki no Me ga Tsubuyaku Tada Kuzureta Sekai I'm in a world that has fallen to ruins Ashita e no Ikiba Sura Nakushita Kedo I had lost my way toward tomorrow, Mamorubeki Hito Koe ga Michibiku but the voice of the one I must protect guides me When I swore to never see her cry again, Namida o Mou Minai to Kimeta Toki Kokoro no Kase Kowashite I freed my heart of its shackles Ima Todaeru Kodou o and grasped a burning blade Honoo e Tokasu Ha o Nigirishime A blade that would melt my heart into fire Ima Fureru Yubi o As my fingers tremble, I firmly place them on my heavy, black trigger Hikigane no Kuro ni Tsuyoku Ategau Kono Inochi o Tada Kuuki no Tama ni Kaete and turn my life into a shot of air Is something wrong, Takashi? You haven't said anything.
As we keep moving, we'll probably see that same thing happen over and over.
Really? Yeah You're right.
Forget about it.
Let's hurry.
Of course, I never forgot about it.
The first day after the world came to an end, I was responsible for someone's death.
I couldn't possibly forget that.
Crazy.
This is worse than a war Boom! You are a man, Hirano-kun.
