One of these...
One of these babies (out of which one is the always adorable/cranky Baby Sunshine), one is more likely to end up as a mid-level management corporate drone in one of the less significant subsidiaries of one of the huge Japanese "Zaibatsu" conglomerates, keep working late nights, marrying, having children but being a constantly absent parent until at the age of 55 he/she will be fired during a reorganization when the company decides that new blood will be needed and with the experience limited to one company he/she fill find her-/himself unable to land a decent job. Eventually he/she will land a low-level sales job spending the nights away from home in ~5,000 yen ($50) cheap ass business hotels in the outskirts of the Kanto area with the spouse at home since long engaged in numerous extra martial affairs and not even bothering to hide it anymore. A not unlikely end is suicide by hanging in the closet of a particularly crappy business hotel after a critical deal got messed up and the shame of reporting this to the abusive supervisor proved too much.
One of these babies will likely find her-/himself getting mostly along on her/his looks as aptitude for studies is lacking and a particularly cranky behaviour makes it difficult to get along with the people around him/her. Eventually he/she might land a job in the "water business" in a cabaret/host club, earning plenty of money but wasting it all away on brand goods and drugs to try and fill the void inside due to the meaninglessness of it all. As he/she is approaching the 30's and the market value is dropping, things will be harder to sustain and a large number of short term loans will make it harder and harder to maintain the lifestyle. A not unlikely end is ending up dead by an overdose of MDMA provided by a handsome (but sociopathic) actor that pretended to be able to help provide a better brighter life but in reality just using him/her as a diversion from the overbearing family life at home.
Our children are the future!
