Downloaded From www.AllSubs.org The IMGP title match is now
drawing to a close. Koji, hang in there! There, Taguchi! You got him! Sir, what a great match
for the championship! If only we’d filled more seats… And there goes Taguchi’s trump card! He’s got him in a
reverse-inverted full nelson! Hiyama’s in trouble!
Will he break free? Taguchi! Taguchi’s got him! And the referee
stops the fight! Hiyama loses! Taguchi seals it with his finisher,
the reverse-inverted full nelson! He did it! There’s our headline, “Taguchi wins
with reverse-inverted full nelson.” Yes! Long hailed as the future ace
of Super Japan Pro Wrestling, Koji Taguchi is no longer a
mere prospect for the future! Now that he’s conquered the IMGP
battle, he’s the man of the moment, standing at the pinnacle of
Super Japan Pro Wrestling! And now, Commissioner Kamohashi of
the Japan Pro Wrestling Federation… will be presenting Koji Taguchi
with the IMGP championship belt. That was a terrific fight! Thank you, sir. What on earth is this? No matter how you look at it,
it’s a squid! A squid has appeared on the ring and
snatched away Taguchi’s hard-earned belt. A giant squid in the ring! The seconds are now attempting to
drag the monster from the ring. But they’re having trouble
grabbing him! He’s too slippery! They’ve provoked him!
It’s a raging squid! He’s tossing aside the
seconds one by one! It appears that the giant squid
is trying to provoke Taguchi. Don’t do it, Koji! They’re facing off in the ring… Taguchi throws the first strike!
The squid comes back with a blow! Taguchi lunges but the squid
deflects him and swings at him. Taguchi goes for the tackle! He’s going for the kill!
It’s his finishing move! It’s the reverse-inverted full nelson! Taguchi’s got the squid in
the reverse-inverted full nelson! It’s the champ’s signature move. The new champ’s got him in a lock
and he’s tightening his grip! Holy cow! The squid escapes
from the inescapable hold! What’s your analysis? Joint locks don’t work on an
invertebrate! He’s too slippery! And now a head butt! Taguchi’s stunned, he’s dazed!
And he goes down! Now the squid goes for a hold! The squid’s got Taguchi
in a joint lock! That’s an awfully difficult move. The squid’s got him in a firm
arm lock, er… tentacle lock. He stands up Taguchi,
gets under his arm, and… Amazing! He delivers a
Northern Light Suplex! This is a nightmare for Taguchi!
Can this really be happening? Kan-ichi? The Calamari Wrestler Directed by Minoru KawasakiThe Headquarters of
Super Japan Pro WrestlingThose morons! It’s not like the squid
won the championship! It’s truly a regrettable situation, sir. But it’s been a while since we
made it onto the front page. What’s the use in getting Taguchi on
the front page for such a disgrace? Super Japan Pro Wrestling is
nothing but a laughing stock now. The public probably thinks
it’s one of your schemes again. As if I’d do anything like that!
A squid! Why would I put a squid in the ring
just to embarrass our own star? But we have to take advantage of this.
Let’s set up a rematch. Don’t be silly. We could probably double our attendance. Double…? No way. Taguchi goes for revenge against the
monster squid in a fight for the ages. Adults and kids alike
will be glued to theTV. You really think so? Absolutely. And we should move on it quickly. But if Taguchi doesn’t win,
it’d be pointless. Indeed, we’ll need to arrange for that. Kan-ichi Iwata? Never heard of him.
I used to only cover baseball. He used to be the top young
wrestler in the federation. I used to root for him all the time. But just as he was peaking,
a terminal illness forced him to retire, and that was the last the world
heard from this tragic genius. Huh. Must’ve been three years ago. Back then, Taguchi felt like hardly
more than Iwata’s attendant. So what does Iwata have
to do with the squid? Well, that move by the squid yesterday
just reminded me of Iwata. Thinking about it kept me up
all night, actually. Must be around here. Hello. We’re with Teito Sports,
here to interview the Calamari Wrestler. He stands up Taguchi,
gets under his arm, and… Amazing! He delivers a
Northern Light Suplex! What’s wrong? A bad dream? No, it was nothing, just a dream. Cheers. I’ve got high hopes for you, Taguchi. You’re the one who’ll lift
wrestling back to the top. as the king of national pastimes,
like in the glory days of Godozan. Godozan? Daddy, you’re
so old-fashioned! Godozan was a star in the ’50s, right? Miyako, you’re always
making fun of old things. All I’m saying is that pro wrestling
needs another charismatic leader. Daddy… We were supposed to talk
about our wedding plans. That’s right, I’m sorry. About that, sir… We’d agreed to hold the ceremony
after I became the IMGP champion. Well, you’re the champion now. No, my belt was taken away. That wasn’t an official fight. It was cowardly, ambushing
you after your match. That’s why I need to fight him
again in my best condition. Don’t be silly!
He’s not even human. That doesn’t matter. He denied me my championship. This time, I won’t lose.Any relationship with Kan-ichi lwata?Thanks for taking the time. Well, let’s see now,
where should I start? You see, it’s my first
time talking to a squid. Ask anything you’d like. He’ll speak the same
language you all speak. Ah, is that right? Well, then… Mr. Calamari, what foods do you like? There’s nothing I won’t eat. I like everything. That’s wonderful. Red bean rice cakes. You like red bean rice cakes? The ones from Okamotoya with
citrus dumplings, especially.Red bean rice cakes with citrus
dumplings from Okamotoya!Those were Kan-ichi’s favorites…Mr. Calamari, you mentioned you’re
from Hunza Valley in Pakistan, but isn’t that a mountainous region
far from any inhabitable ocean? It’s a preconception by mediocre minds
that squids can only live in water. Even in Japan, an octopus was
once spotted on Shirane Mountain. A world that transcends the
imagination of men… That’s Hunza. You must be hoping to
fight an official match. Without question. I came here specifically
to get in that ring. On a different topic, have you heard of a wrestler
by the name of Kan-ichi Iwata? I’m sorry but we’re out of time.
We’ve got more training to do. But wait, sir, you haven’t
answered my question! Yes? Open up! Open the door! Taguchi’s not here. I’m not here for Taguchi! Open the door! Let me in! Then why? Why did you come? I don’t have any squid friends!
What do you want? What…? Why…? Please go home! I’m sorry… Kan-ichi? Kan-ichi, is it you? Kan-ichi Iwata… is dead. What’s the matter? He was here. The squid was here, wasn’t he? That bastard! Hold me! Hold me tighter! If the Calamari Wrestler
is really Iwata, maybe he’s unhappy about Taguchi
taking what should’ve been his. Will he accept our condition? We’ll give him no choice. If it’s really Iwata, I’m sure
he’ll understand my grand vision. Maybe I’m developing some
hearing difficulties… What did you just say? I must decline.
I’m incapable of fighting to lose. Look, Calamari… Pro wrestling isn’t a sport.
It’s a show. Just look back at the history
of pro wrestling and you’ll see. In the postwar period, our nation
was in a frenzy over Godozan’s success. The people wanted to see a Japanese
wrestler crush the hated Americans. That’s the blueprint. During the high economic growth period, pro wrestling was the fair wind
behind the Japanese spirit. Surely you’d remember. Godozan? Sure, that sounds familiar… He was stabbed to death by
some thug in a cabaret, right? Godozan is the god of pro wrestling!
How dare you disrespect him! Calm down, Furuma. Listen, Calamari… No one embodies the utter chaos
in today’s Japan better than you. The threat of nuclear attacks,
of terrorism, the rise of violent crime,
mysterious viruses, the anxieties over an aging society,
the economy, the politics… You’re perfect for this
current atmosphere, you and your monstrous self. Seeing a Japanese wrestler defeat
you will invigorate their spirits. By seeing a mysterious creature
defeated, anxiety will turn into hope. No matter what, you mustn’t win. You’ll torment the Japanese wrestler, but in the end, the people want to
see you ultimately lose to him. Behind the scenes, of course,
you’re the star. In fact, it’s so brilliant
that you’ve become a squid. Assuming you’re actually
Kan-ichi Iwata, that is. Well? I want to be loved. People will love me if I win. For them, a hero is a winner. Like hell you’ll be loved,
you monster! Look in the mirror! You’re no hero! You’re just an ugly,
disgusting, giant squid! Just let me fight! Let me get in the ring,
and you’ll see! I want everyone to see me fight! The discussion’s over. I’ll make sure you never
enter a Japanese ring. Get out. Get your filthy hands off me! Let go! That’s enough, now! What happened here? Stop it! You’re not allowed in here! Will there be a rematch between
Taguchi and the Calamari Wrestler? The Calamari Wrestler?
He’s banned from Japan pro wrestling! We said get out!The Banishment of the Calamari WrestlerWho’s the fool in this picture? Practice, practice! Sir, one match is all I need! Please, just give me one
chance against Calamari! The company will decide your opponents. But no one will ever see
me as a true champion! The people will soon forget
about the Calamari Wrestler. How can you prevent a talent
from taking the stage? Look, wrestling is a business,
a perfromance! You know that! Just play your role! Quit talking like a greenhorn! Nice coloration on this squid… Can I help you? Sardines, please. Um, sure. 350 yen, right? Can I get change? Thanks. Hey. You gave me too much. You’ve been obsessed
with Calamari lately. You know nothing about me. This is the real me. This was me before
we started dating. Now, I have a sense
of purpose again. But Calamari was banned from wrestling. So you won’t have to
fight him any more, right? We’ll fight. I’ll rip him to pieces
right before your eyes. You’re still in love
with him, aren’t you? With Kan-ichi Iwata, I mean. Stop it! The Calamari Wrestler is
Kan-ichi Iwata, you know. That giant squid isn’t Kan-ichi! Kan-ichi, Kan-ichi…
I had to put up with it for so long. I was always in his goddamn shadow! As long as he was around,
I always came second. “Taguchi, the promising talent
second only to Iwata” they’d say. Even for you, I was the second guy. But you’re number one now. Yeah right! Not even close! You even listening to me? How bad it feels when it’s like
I’m just sitting in his spot. Like if he ever came back, I’d have
to give up my seat again… You even know what that feels like? This time, I’m putting an end to this. You’re thinking too much. I’m leaving. You said you were staying tonight. I’m not seeing you until I beat him. Why are you doing this?
Calamari has nothing to do with us! Maybe I only wanted you because
you belonged to Iwata… I used to covet everything he had. Don’t say that! So who’s better in bed, me or Iwata? Q-1 is now the second
martial fighting organization. to recruit the Calamari Wrestler
Let’s see how the negotiations went. Director Ishiyama!
Please, just one comment! We couldn’t get anywhere. His passion for pro wrestling
is just too strong. Will you give up signing him? He’s an exceptional talent,
so we intend to keep trying. Do me a favor? Sir? Scrub my back for me. Kan-ichi, this country’s
filled with temptations. Be careful. Yes. Think back to the feeling
when you were revived. That state of selflessness. And don’t forget it. If you relapse into desires,
ailments will return to your body. I understand, master. Looking for Calamari? Um, no, well… There’s a little park
straight ahead on the left. That’s where he always trains. Thank you. Sis! We’ve been dating a while, but I guess I really
didn’t know much about Koji. He probably took that
attitude with you. because Kan-ichi showed up. You say Kan-ichi,
but he’s a squid! But he’s Kan-ichi, right? I saw Kan-ichi today. Miyako… Well, I only saw him from a distance. But he hasn’t changed a bit. It’s like I feel all warm
just by looking at him. I guess your heart’s already decided. What’re you talking about? You’ve always been like that. You want advice, but deep down
you already know the answer. My job is just to listen. I haven’t decided anything. No, you already know the answer, so don’t be taking any detours. You’re saying I should
go out with a squid? That’s your answer? Sis! I didn’t say anything. But that’s unthinkable. Calamari was banned
from wrestling. How would he be
able to support me? Besides, Koji is the
Super Japan champion. So you want me to play
the devil’s advocate? Come on, I just want
your sincere opinion. Some people say marriage and
love are two separate things, but I don’t think that’s true. There’s nothing more natural than
to be with the person you love. It’s when we start getting swayed
by things other than our true feeling. That we start descending into despair. Speaking from personal
experience, anyway. You know, Miyako… Whether he’s a human or a squid,
he’s still Kan-ichi…The Building of
the Japan Pro Wrestling FederationImpressive. I’m talking about this building. Pardon, are you a visitor? Kamohashi, that’s an awfully cold way to
greet an old friend, don’t you think? Wow, you’re going shopping!
That’s wonderful! Hey, look! We got all these petitions signed
to get ’em to let you fight. I appreciate it. We’re all on your side, you know. Hey! Have some sardines to fuel up! Thank you so much. These are fresh. I’ll get some more for you, too. Why did you disappear like that? You never bothered to call me! Why’d you leave me all alone? I said I’d always be by your side. Sorry… You’re such a jerk! We’ve gotten petitions from all over,
demanding we let Calamari fight. Not to mention over200 calls a day. My, my… He’s been turning down offers
from martial arts organizations, saying he’s dedicating his
life to pro wrestling. We look like the bad guys now. I want Calamari to fight
as much as the nextperson. But he won’t agree to our condition. You’re talking about getting
Calamari to throw the fight? It’s not as if we’re still in
an era of good guys and bad guys. Besides, Taguchi wants
to fight him, too. We’ve got a legacy to protect. I have no intention of selling
a farce of a show where a man loses to some giant squid. You don’t know that Taguchi will lose. His chances aren’t good. He may look like a squid now, but they say he used
to be Kan-ichi Iwata. It might be a good match. As long as they’re pro wrestlers,
they must commit to the show. There’s one thing I vowed
when I became the president. Godozan’s legacy, right? Indeed. It was Godozan’s wrestling that lifted the spirits of the struggling
Japanese people after the war. His karate punches were the fair wind
behind Japan’s rapid economic growth. Yet today there’s no life in Japan,
no life in pro wrestling. The threat of nuclear weapons
and terrorism, and all the chaos in today’s society
can be embodied by Calamari. By showing our own ace
defeating that giant squid, we can help alleviate
the people’s anxiety. It’s a cause worth working for. I’ll see to it that
pro wrestling will blossom into the king of popular culture,
like it was during Godozan’s time. Godozan wouldn’t have wanted
that brand of pro wrestling. Huh? If he were alive today, he wouldn’t
have wanted it to be that way. It’s a matter of interpretation… Listen to me. Be they men or squid,
they’re still professional wrestlers. So long as the man and the squid
give their absolute best in the ring, the viewers will respond, and there’ll be an exchange of energy
between the fighters and the fans. They cease to be human or squid. What Godozan would want isn’t some
substitute for the evil West, but rather, world peace and
a society without prejudice.Calamari a Reincarnation
of Kan-ichi lwata!Calamari and Taguchi
to Square Off On Oct. 22In the town where the Calamari
Wrestler resides at a temple, they’re celebrating as if
Calamari has already won. To celebrate the fight, our
squid’s on sale for 100 yen each! Calamari ate our radish to get stronger. Come get ’em! Looks like this match will have an
unexpected economic impact here. The Calamari’s just cool.
I’d love a figurine. They should come as prizes,
like when you buy seafood sausages. We’re in Tokyo at Super Japan’s
training facility. Champion Koji Taguchi is training for
his match with the Calamari Wrestler. We’re going to try to get
a few comments from him. Let’s find out how he’s feeling. No press are allowed inside. No, he won’t be doing interviews! Please, just let us get a
few moments to talk to him! Sorry, I don’t make the decisions. There appears to be some
covert training going on inside. C’mon, get serious! A squid’s got ten arms, man! Use your hands and feet and
gimme everything you got! Ow, ow…! Who the hell are you? None of your business. Hey, this is Calamari’s promoter! Hey, hey! Awake now? Who’re you? Sir, he’s Calamari’s promoter.
He’s here to spy on us. I’m your trainer now. Huh? At this rate you’ll
never beat Calamari. What the hell did you say? Come with me to Hunza.
Then you can win. What’re you talking about? Better hurry.
Only three hours ’til departure. I’m not going!Calamari- Taguchi
Fight is BlasphemousSoiling the Game of Pro WrestlingThis is just an insult
to the public, to the fans. Squid should be fighting other squid. Even if he’s an ex-human,
I mean, he’s a squid… right? Can this get any more ridiculous? It’s like a cartoon! This stuff isn’t supposed
to fly in the real world! This is just… squalid! There’s been some controversy
about this upcoming match. As a wrestler, how do you feel? Some fighters even gained fame
after battling bulls and bears, so why not squid? I’ll be cheering them on
Looking forward to it, really. Who do you think will win? That’s a tough one. I mean, a squid! I don’t think punches or
joint locks are gonna work. Maybe just slam him to the ground. One thing I can say for sure is, it’s gonna be an amazing fight
like you’ve never seen.Takayama Supports
Calamari- Taguchi FightI’m so glad Takayama said that! He’s never been a man to judge
based on prejudices or preconceptions. Anyway, here, look at this. Ready? Here we go. Yay, congratulations! You’re amazing. Your dream about beating the
illness and fighting again, you made it come true. Wish I could’ve been more help to you. Not at all! You’re the one that I, um… if it weren’t for you… I’ll go make some salad. Naughty boy! Hey, cut it out, hey… Still falling off the bed
after all these years? What happened? I’ll call the ambulance! What’re you doing? I don’t want to put
antibiotics in my body. But we have to stop the pain! The temple! Call the temple… So you’ve succumbed to temptation. It’s my fault. You did nothing wrong.
Now leave the rest to us. Let’s take him to the bell. We can’t get in touch
with Master Senzan! We’ll conduct the treatment ourselves. Yes. Hurry, hurry! We will now begin
the rite to expel desire from the 365 points
of Kan-ichi Iwata’s body. Begin! One! Two! Three! Four! Kan-ichi! Will you perish as a mere
desire-ridden terrestrial, or will you endure the
rite of 365 points and sublimate yourself
as a creature of the ocean? I’ll do it. It’s impossible! Go home, Miyako! I want to become a squid again. and enter the ring one more time! Please! From the beginning, then. One! Two! Three! Sir, the tickets sold out
in just 15 minutes! This is the fastest ever. The premium ringside seats are
going for 800,000 in auctions! Taguchi better be coming back. Um, of course. He told his team he’ll be back
for the match no matter what. So you came running back? I’d just be in the way
if I stayed over there. Even as we speak,
Kan-ichi’s battling over there. You can’t be turning your eyes away. This is when you have to be
by his side, right to the end. Sis… Hang in there. Thanks.232!233! Sir, we can’t continue this! At this rate, he’ll die! Is this it, Calamari Wrestler? Is this as high as you can climb? Everything that is alive
must die at some point. Death visits everyone, equally. I’ve already died once. But even when the body expires,
the spirit lives on forever. That’s why I want to live once more. I don’t mind dying again. I’m now free from all thoughts,
no regrets whatsoever. Oh God, please turn Kan-ichi
into a squid again.I see it!Miyako!Kanagawa Ultra ArenaSir, Calamari just
got in the locker room. A bit late. It stunk so bad in there. I’d bet. Not the squid, it’s the sweaty
monks that came with him! What in hell were they doing? It’s the driver picking up Taguchi. Hello… So he got in? Step on it and rush him here. Let me speak to Taguchi
…He can’t? Why not? Whatever, just hurry over! How’s Taguchi? Apparently he’s fine, but he’s not able to take the phone. What does that mean? Good evening, everyone. We’re at the Kanagawa Ultra Arena
for the IMGP championship match where the champion Koji Taguchi
will face the Calamari Wrestler. Our commentator is Tarzan Yamamoto, and our guest is Toradan Nanbu
from the Dengeki Network. Thank you for coming. – Oh, yeah!
– Yo! So Tarzan, we should be
seeing a fight for the ages. It’s a historical event.
It really should be something. Toradan, what do you
expect out of this match? It may turn out to be… a squid. Thank you, very enlightening. We’ll be hearing more from
them later on, but now let’s check out
the third match of the card, where Satsuma is taking on Maeno. It seems the rumor was true. Calamari, you mustn’t lose your poise when
you see Senzan in Taguchi’s corner. Yes, sir. Do not blame him, for surely
Senzan had his own reasons. Excuse me. We need you on standby. Did Taguchi arrive? Yes, just now. However… It’s now time for the official
IMGP championship match! First, the challenger,
the Calamari Wrestler! Your complexion’s looking pretty good! Quit crying, it hasn’t even started! And now, the IMGP champion,
Koji Taguchi! Keep your poise. We’ve just been notified that Taguchi has just completed
training in Hunza, Pakistan and was reborn as an octopus. So what you see before your eyes
is, in fact, Koji Taguchi. No mistake, this is Taguchi! Just call him the Octopus Wrestler. You think so? Octopus Wrestler? The fight for the IMGP
championship has begun. Octopus throws Calamari to the ground. Calamari comes back with
some kicks to the knee. Octopus is reeling a bit. They grapple, and
Calamari wraps behind. He takes Octopus down! Was Octopus knocked unconscious? Looks like he’s fine.
Octopus gets up. Calamari with a rolling kick. He lands the rolling kick! Calamari’s in his first official match. They grapple once again. It’s a test of strength.
Calamari gets the upper hand! Calamari’s got him on the ground.
Octopus reaches for the ropes. It’s like Calamari’s inherited
the fighting spirit of Inoki. Good point, Inoki
was squid-like, wasn’t he? But really, this is going
to be a fight to the death. Calamari unleashes a flurry of
knuckle punches to the temple. Octopus is taking some
serious damage here. Is Calamari going for
the kill already? He follows up with
some kicks to the knee. Octopus is cornered in. Calamari’s got this
match under control. He knocks him down.
What’ll he do next? Calamari wraps up Octopus in
an octopus hold and squeezes! Octopus goes into spasms! A Calamari and Octopus double-decker.
What a gourmet seafood special! Oh, but Octopus counters! Wow, he’s got Calamari in
a reverse mackerel hold! What gamesmanship from Octopus,
formerly known as Koji Taguchi! Calamari gets up, throws him on
the ropes and takes him down! Octopus is in pain. They’re grappling,
and Calamari’s got his arm. He’s working on that arm. The crowd’s getting fired up. Now it’s the Octopus’ turn.
He’s delivering vicious chops. Three in a row! He’s being very careful here. Octopus has Calamari in a tight grip!
He’s clamping down like a vice! An amazing display of strength! And now Calamari’s complexion is
turning from white to skin color. Will this be it for Calamari?
Can he take this any longer? Will this decide it? Stop it or you won’t taste any good. Will this bring a sudden
end to this classic battle? Throw in the towel! Kan-chi! You’ve done enough!
Please, that’s enough! Kan-ichi, you’ve already worked hard
enough! Please, just rest now! Calamari manages to break free! He delivers a backdrop with a twist! He follows that with
a double underhook suplex! And from the second rope, he connects on a body slam,
right to the head! Calamari’s just merciless right now! Now he’s grabbing his legs,
and… oh my goodness! Calamari has Octopus in
a giant swing! Unbelievable! What a move, the giant swing! How many times will he spin? Ladies and gentleman, we are not
underwater! This is really happening! Ink! Now he’s inking him! He connects on the
Medulla Oblongata Cutter! Does an octopus have
a medulla oblongata? One, two, three! Hooray! Yessss! Miyako! Miyako! What were your thoughts
when you saw the Octopus? Miyako! Miyako! How did it feel to finally
fight an official match? Miyako! Miyako! Kan-ichi! I love you, Kan-ichi! Pro wrestling… It’s back!“Calamari vs. Octopus” NoodleThis thing’s going to be a hit. Squid ink soup and
plenty of octopus meat. Twice the taste in each bowl! Say, our latest commercial’s
about to air. Is that right? A refreshing drink for
the luscious cephalopod! Sorry I’m late. Some teenage girls
were hounding me. Not easy being popular. They were taking pictures of me. How’d they see through my disguise? Am I that obvious? Hello there. Can I get you something to drink? I’ll have some Dom Perignon. Sure, I’ll be right back. After shopping, can you come
to the realtor with me? The realtor? I want my mother to move in. I want to find her a
place with an ocean view. She makes dried fish, remember? Figured she’d be feel more
comfortable near the ocean. Say, when did your father pass away? Mother told me he died
when I was about one. Don’t even know his face, his name. Mother used to be a geisha when she
was young, and he was a regular. I see. I’m sure he would’ve been
proud of you right now. Who knows? All I’ve known is
growing up with my mother. I can’t even imagine what
it’s like to have a father. I guess some people have
really similar fates… What? Um… We’re fine.
Our order’s all here. You’re the Calamari Wrestler, right? Well, yes. May I have an autograph? I’d be happy to, if you
really want my scribbling. Thank you so much! I want an autograph, too! Please! Where should we go next? Man, give me a break. Oh no, not yet.
I’m going to hog you all to myself. Don’t get too full of yourself,
Calamari Wrestler. The strongest fighter in the world
is me, the Squilla Boxer! Kan-ichi! Are you OK?– Calamari Wrestler Ambushed
– Calamari CrushedMighty Squilla Boxer Makes a SplashSquilla Signs With Q-1World’s First Inter-species
Animal Championship MatchI was really surprised by
the last match, frankly. Human or squid, I guess amazing
fights have a way of speaking to us. They transcend nations,
they transcend race. Well, I think Calamari might
be the underdog this time but I’m expecting an even
better fight than the last. Calamari and Octopus,
aren’t these just great? And of course you’d want to
see the Squilla too, right? So I had my buddy
make me a sample. Can’t wait ’til this hits the market! Frankly, I’m really a fan of Calamari. See, I grew up near the coast
where the squid was excellent. So naturally I’m drawn to Calamari. I just can’t help it, you know. But one thing is, this is his first
match against a Crustacean, right? I think he might have a pretty
hard time with Squilla’s punches. In any case, I’m sure it’ll be a…
tasty fight! No doubt in my mind. Man, I’m getting excited
just thinking about it! I said no! I won’t repeat it! Like I said, today’s a private session.
There’s nothing here to see. Just go home.
No, please just go home! Hey, hey, ever done it with an octopus? It’s awesome value, I’m tellin’ you.
We’re talking eight hands! With suction cups sucking on you, too. Pervert! Hey, c’mon!
Let’s do some sucky sucky… What the hell you lookin’ at? You look pathetic for a star. I ain’t no star anymore. I’ll never beat Iwata. I’ll be second fiddle
for the rest of my life. Is that how you really feel?
You don’t want revenge? No way an octopus can beat a squid. I’m short two tentacles to begin with. Then turn into a crab
or sea urchin or something. Wasn’t your dream to defeat Iwata? I saw the Squilla Boxer sparring today. How was it? Iwata’s probably taking this lightly,
figuring that ambush was a lucky shot. But that punch is lethal. Iwata’s going to go in complacent
and get murdered in there. Is that what you want? To see him killed before you
get a chance to beat him? How could you decide that
without consulting me? Look, I understand that’s
the only date available. But the feng shui’s
horrible at Tokyo Dome. Let’s do it at the
Ultra Super Deluxe Arena. At least give me that. Otherwise I’m not fighting. Are you really fighting him? It’s the “Squid vs. Squilla in the
New Year’s Eve Seafood Smackdown” He’s no different than humans,
getting spoiled by fame. But I wonder if merchandising sales
might go down if Calamari loses… The Octopus is still selling fine. That’s true. Good morning, sir! Who’s that? You want some? The Squilla’s punch is
twice as fast as that egg. That blow you took from him
wasn’t even half his strength. You won’t last a second in the ring. You finished? Wanna see? He took down three guys in two seconds. Look, no distance is safe. His reach is long and he’s
faster than a blink, he can cover any ground. There’s no contest. His punch is like a gun.
As destructive as a shotgun, really. How do you intend to fight
an opponent with a shotgun? Difficult, indeed. Get behind his back.
That’s his blind spot. He’ll knock me out before I get there. There’s one possible way. Working hard? I brought some sandwiches.
Come and get them! Thanks! C’mon, a little more! Good! Gimme one more, hang in there! Thanks as always! Man, I’m starving. Koji, thanks for everything. Kan-ichi didn’t have anyone
to talk to about wrestling, so it’s comforting just
having you around. Don’t get me wrong. I’m just making sure he stays
healthy so I can beat him. Hey. Looks like you’ve gotten
better at curbing your desires. I’ve been in this condition long enough. So what brings you here? You need money or something? Quite the opposite. I figure you won’t
survive New Year’s Eve, so I thought I’d bring an obituary gift.
Sad to see your end so soon. Cut the crap! Honey! So the Squilla’s your idea, huh? Remember this. He’ll be the one that’s going
to face an early end! Oh? Faster, faster! This takes me back. Training with you
were my favorite times. I hated it. Every time we’d spar, you’d
be stronger than the last. Since I hated to lose,
you were a pain in the ass. Oh yeah? Well, thanks to you,
I’m a better fighter for it. Don’t you lose, Kan-ichi Iwata. Of course not.
Didn’t make this comeback for nothing. Here at the Ultra Super Deluxe Arena,
fans have already started gathering. in anticipation of tomorrow’s
match between Calamari and Squilla. Who’re you rooting for tomorrow? Calamari Wrestler, all the way! And you? Go Calamari, kill the Squilla! Calamari! Calamari! All they want to see is blood. They want to see bones shattering,
hear us scream… They just want to see someone die.
Each and every one of them! Maybe some are like that,
but it’s not everyone. It’s strange. If the fans expect it, I almost feel
like I have to give it to them. Don’t be stupid. All I want is for you to
come back to me safely. We still have so many
places to go together. I love you. I want to have your children. Miyako…The Ultra Super Deluxe ArenaWho will be standing at the end?
Calamari Wrestler or Squilla Boxer? Calamari and Squilla will face off
in this Inter-Species Championship, just moments from now to determine
the best fighter on the planet. Our commentator today is Go Yoshida,
and I’m Kaido for your play-by-play. How about the last match? That fight with the Octopus has to
go down in history as a classic. Yes, it was really something. But today’s match is the first
inter-species fight for animals. It’s going to be an
unpredictable battle. It’s got the electricity of
that Inoki vs. Ali match. You can feel the thirst
for blood in the air. It’s completely packed! Not only in here, theTVratings should be
off the charts tonight. This is going to get wild! Let’s check in with the
Calamari and the Squilla. and see how both sides
are doing in the locker room. First, for the Calamari side,
Ms. Torigoe? Yes. How does the Calamari Wrestler
look in there right now? I’m here in front of the
Calamari Wrestler’s locker room. Excuse me. Looks like he’s finished warm ups
and is meditating right now. I see, so he’s preparing by
raising his concentration level. Meanwhile, how is the Squilla.
Boxer preparing, Mr. Fukui? Yes, Fukui here. I’m in front of the Squilla
Boxer’s locker room now. Apparently he’s warming up
inside at the moment. Let’s take a look inside
and see how he’s doing. Excuse me. Mr. Squilla, do you have a moment? Mr. Fukui! Excuse me. A telegram from Monhon Temple, sir. It’s starting! It’s starting! Be quiet, now. Sorry, sir.We’re unable to attend due
to New Year’s duties here.All of us here have faith
that you will triumph today.Now, live in the moment.Don’t worry, I’ll take care
of your widowed wife after this. Go to hell! Squilla takes a quick shot,
already showing his ferocity. That’s illegal, though. But Calamari didn’t dodge it.
Did he see it? I don’t think he did.
Squilla’s giving him a warning. Right. Wait, there’s blood emerging from
where Squilla grazed his head! You alright? Squilla’s showing off
his nimble footwork. Very reminiscent of Muhammad Ali. And what the…? Strange, Calamari’s just disappeared. I wonder where he went. What a bizarre development. He emerges from underneath
and gets rear position! But Squilla connects on a right
hook and then another! A flurry of punches!
And he isn’t stopping! This is just utterly one-sided! He’s a total goner. Squilla’s just toying with
him like he’s a plaything! It’s a Calamari pinball! Hey, break it up! C’mon, dance!
Dance for me! I’m scared, I’m scared! Iwata… Kan-Ichi! What happened? His fear of Squilla made
him degenerate into a human. Stop! This match is already over! Out of the way! Taguchi… Stop the fight!
It’s too dangerous! Wait, the real fight’s about to begin. I have no use for losers. You’re not even Calamari now.
You’re nothing but sashimi! Kan-ichi, please don’t! Let’s do it. Hit your head in the wrong spot? I love pro wrestling, man!
I just love it. I love that I get to fight
someone like you. Kan-ichi, don’t do it, please! And now the fight between
Iwata and Squilla begins! He blocks the punch, wraps
and goes for the cobra twist! Squilla counters with a throw! Iwata comes back with some kicks. Oh, and he’s got him
in an ankle twist hold! Once, twice, three times in a row! Squilla looks to be in a lot of pain. Is it a counter? There it goes, a beautiful headstand!
A complete recovery by Iwata! A vicious uppercut from Squilla!
Iwata goes down! Kan-ichi! Iwata! Iwata! Iwata! Iwata! Iwata gets up! He rises as if possessed
by the crowd’s spirit! One more blow and he’s gone. He rips his arm out! He tosses it aside!
He’s cooking up something! Now he grabs the left arm. What astounding strength! Holy cow! He connects on a
megaton meteor kick! That man looks awfully familiar… It can’t be… Godozan! It’s difficult to rationalize, but a man that appears to be Godozan
has emerged out of the Squilla! But Godozan should have died 40 years
ago with an intestinal obstruction! Isn’t that Senzan, that guy
who used to be Calamari’s promoter? Hey! Excuse us. “Godozan, real name Mitsuteru Senzan” Godozan’s real name is Senzan! What? Kan-ichi, Koji… I am your real father! The crowd here at the Ultra
Super Deluxe Arena is stunned, as it comes to terms with this
bizarre Bermuda Triangle scenario, in which squid, octopus and squilla
in fact all belong to one family! Listen to the crowd cheering! This is possibly the greatest match
in the 50 years of pro wrestling! We’re standing at the threshold
of a new era in pro wrestling! With Iwata and Taguchi inheriting
Godozan’s blood, pro wrestling in Japan will
live on forever! Directed by Minoru Kawasaki Downloaded From www.AllSubs.org
