Cool Pachinko

pachinko

You’ve probably always wondered where the pachinko balls that don’t end up in your basket go to as they disappear down all those little holes. Well, it’s really quite simple. They are routed up to the roof of the building, where they undergo a rigorous cleansing and training program. The large dark grey vat in the photo above is the washing-machine, where they all go first. From there they are filtered according to their abilities and social status. The box on the right, with the rails around it, is the disciplinary area for unruly balls. (The rails have a 1,000,000 volt current running through them.) The very best of the balls end up at the duct on the left that is slightly higher than the others. Under this duct, in the smoke and cacaphony of the pachinko hall itself, is situated the number one winning machine.

At night, the whole duct system tranforms into a Robo-Warrior and roams the backstreets of Tokyo looking for illegally parked bicycles and left over takoyaki to eat for dinner.

皆さんも不思議に思ってることだと思うんですが、かごに入らない、当たらないパチンコの玉はいったいどこへ消えて行くでしょうか。その答えはきわめて簡単です。ビルの屋上へ流動され、そこで厳しい洗浄と訓練を行います。上の写真の真中にある濃いグレー色のものは洗浄機です。全ての玉はそこを通ります。その後、玉の能力や格付けによってフィルターされます。右側の鉄柵に囲まれてる箱はトラブルメーカーのための訓練室です。(鉄柵に電気100万ボルトが通ります。)左側の他とちょっと高く上に上がってるダクトは高級グレードの玉のためです。あのダクトの真下に一番当たる台が位置されてます。

夜になると屋上のダクト全体がロボウォリアーに変身し、東京の裏道をよろよろ歩きながら、夕飯のための駐車違反の自転車や、たこ焼きの食べ残しを探します。
