This is from the current Team Rocket Radio drama from Japan.  It’s the opening skit where James is trying to rescue Jessie on a spaceship in a timeline far removed from their own.  It’s the shippiest thing they’ve ever given us!  In the skit, they use their English dub names for some reason.  Here’s a translation to go along with the audio.  (I’m not sure who translated it, but if you do know, please let one of us know)

Kojiro: Ship’s logbook. 5260. Our ship, QQ02 set off on a journey to repair the timeline. However, because of the unknown error of the ship’s system, the ship went off the track.

Musashi: James… James…

Kojiro: Jessie!

Musashi: James!

Kojiro: Ah, are you alright, Jessie? I’ll save you now!…

Musashi: What about other people?

Kojiro: The only people left here are the two of us. *noise of struggling with something*

Musashi: It’s impossible for you alone to move this rubble.

Kojiro: Shit!

Musashi: It’s ok, James…

Kojiro: *panting* I won’t give up… I can’t give up!

Computer voice: Oxygen density decline, oxygen density decline. Limit 30, limit 30.

Kojiro: Hah, what?!

Musashi: Finally… finally it’s only two of us.

Kojiro: Eh?

Musashi: We were both busy and even if we wanted to meet with each other, we couldn’t.

Kojiro: Jessie…

Musashi: But now, when you’re this close to me, holding my hand… I’m happy. I’m very happy…

Kojiro: Jessie…

Musashi: Do you remember? When we first met… ? We both tried to save a little kid from falling and we bumped our foreheads. Even if it hurt, we laughed…

Kojiro: Hahaha, I remember…

Musashi: And later, we were searching for the same book in the bookshop by coincidence…

Kojiro: Ah… Hah *sniffs* yes, we were.

Musashi: From that time on, the coincidences continued to happen somehow. But now that I think of it, it wasn’t just a coincidence, it was inevitable. It was destiny that I met you.

Kojiro: Jessie…

Musashi: So don’t cry… We’ll be able to meet each other again for sure… somewhere for sure… Somehow I have this feeling… That’s why… you… should survive…

Kojiro: Jessie… I can’t leave you!

Musashi: I… can’t move anymore. There’s still some oxygen left for you. You will find a reason to live for for sure… 

Kojiro: NO! Please… I can’t live!

Musashi: Ah… Beautiful! Look! This light is wrapping me up…

*bang*

Kojiro: What was that? That’s… UFO… Shit, they’re trying to break the door! *breathes heavily* I… WILL PROTECT JESSIE!

*more noise*

The Japanese voice actors using the English names… *pinches self* I am still on Earth, right?… (Click through to original post to listen to the audio file.)
