His appetite isn't too big, he was in a few POW camps, he was given food, but when Jonathan was in charge, his rations were reduced to 300 calories a day, but, the time he almost starved to death was in some land battle in the Battle of Okinawa, he fainted from hunger, was brought to a military hospital, it was malnutrition, he complained his stomach hurt, daddy told him he was just hungry, the time when he last ate? 3 weeks) ~ Jiao on her uncle

I made friends with a Chinese boy name Zhu, Chan Zhu, he was friendly, he died during an air raid in Chungking, China, he was a cheerful boy, even when I was Taiwanese-Japanese, he was friendly with mommy and daddy) ~ Jiao talking to Eric.
(One time, before daddy was captured and was in that Shanghai h***, my uncle barricaded himself into a room when Sho came over, during those days, he was starving, his room was locked by accident and when Sho was gone, it took him 4 days when I was at the door to notify that the moron was away, I heard loud growling, I thought it was a raging beast attacking him, but actually, it was his stomach, he told me if I could get him some food, I let him out and Sho was away finally, since he's been starving for 1 week, he asked daddy for food, but it was their training the day we done it, and after that, my uncle finally ingested something for the first time in a week, and he overfed himself, he took off the belt because his was pressing on his stomach, he slept for 4 hours, and he ran to get the excess weight off)
(One time, there was this Taiwanese lady, I accidentally shot her daughter in the head when I tried to get Uncle's gun off her, my eyes were filled with fear and I started crying, my uncle and daddy came in, I dropped it, that lady screamed, my daddy said "She's just a child, she didn't mean to do it on purpose, she tried getting the gun off her!", I was outside Unit 731's headquarters, It was 1944, doctors said it wasn't my fault at all and just blamed it on distraction, her brother actually vomited, the reason I was in Unit 731 a lot, even though it was a research facility, my seizures could kill me, and they had doctors checking me a few times in every 2 months)
(I'm, even though I can pass on, I am forever bounded to Unit 731, That means, My connections to it are permanent and no one can undo it)
