That Tetsu actually won…
You did it, Tetsu!!
Boshu… it wasn’t you I lost to… It was this kid, with Heaven’s Hands…
Hey! Your eyes!!
There’s blood! Blood’s pouring out!!
My play style strains my retinas to the extreme… The capillaries around them probably burst.
We have to get you to a hospital, quick!
It’s too late for that.
“Too Late”?! You mean… you’re blind?!
Don’t act so flustered, Ken… You knew this could happen when you asked me to do this.
Asshole… You knew?!
Yeah. I knew his eyes were in bad shape.
He’s the one who taught me how to gamble, after all.
He was your teacher?!
Then this guy made his teacher play even though he knew it’d make him blind?!
KEN: Keh. I can’t be babied by my teacher forever, you naive fucks.
KEN: Losing at gambling is always damaging.
Jinbo lost, so he lost his sight. That’s all.
DANCHI: That’s all?!
JINBO: I was a catholic priest. It’s the deed to my church. Since you won, you get to take it.
TETSUYA: A church…
Then it’s that place those kids were looking after?
Were you playing to protect those kids?
JINBO: Don’t misunderstand.
I played for myself and lost. No one else was involved.
KID: Ah! Father! Where’d you go? We were so worried!
JINBO: Ah… It’s you…
KID: Look, here’s your cross! Can’t forget something as important as this!
JINBO: Ah. Thank you.
Father… What happened to your eyes?
JINBO: Oh, this?
This is what I got for committing the sin of gambling.
Those who sin must be punished.
KID: You can’t see anything, anymore?
JINBO: That’s right.
KID: Don’t worry, Father Jinbo!
We’ll be your eyes!
Take it. Nobody wants a dirty old church like that.
Ken… may the blessing of God…
I don’t need that crap.
Let’s go back, Father Jinbo!
Ahh… It’s so bright…
You were the greatest gambler, for sure… My teacher.
I lost to that kid, went blind, and will probably never play Mahjong again, but… I don’t regret anything.
Even though this happened to me, my battle with Boshu 11 years ago was brought to a close. In fact, I’m grateful.
I have nothing left to give you… Boshu’s and my era has ended.
From here on, it’s your era… And…
Now is the time that the head of this new era will be decided…
