Stage 1[edit]

Long Shrine Road: The Promised Land

永い参道--約束の土地

Long Shrine Road: The Promised Land

 彼の地をヒトは无現里と呼ぶが、
禁足地であるこの地が
外界に知られることは
まずありえないだろう。

鳥居の少ない参道でも、
力の弱い妖怪を渋らせるには
十分なのだから。
矛盾している結界でも、
力の弱い人間を欺けるのには
十分なのだから。 

Humans call that land "Mugenri",
but because it's a tabooed land,
it's very unlikely for it to
become known in the outside world.

After all, even a shrine road
with few gates is enough to
make weak youkai falter.

After all, even a contradictory
barrier is enough for weak
humans to be deceived.

Jun Amanomiya EXITS

Kuroji

あぁ〜あ、随分とあたりを散策したものだが・・・

Ahh, I've been strolling around the vicinity quite a bit, but...

Kuroji

まったく手がかりが掴めなかった、
かなり遠くに来てしまったし

I couldn't find a single clue.
And I've come out all this way, too.

Kuroji

仕方ない、一度里に行ってみて
聞き込みでもしてくるか

No matter. How about I head to the village
and get some information there?

???

おや、空飛ぶ人間とは

Oh, a flying human?

Kuroji

ん?

Hm?

Jun Amanomiya ENTERS

???

ここらでは珍しいもんだ

That's a rarity 'round these parts.

Kuroji

安心しろ、私達がいた世界でも珍しい

Don't worry. They're rare in the world we came from, too.

???

そうかい
君が最近外から来たっていう連中かい?

Oh, really?
Are you one of those who came in from outside recently?

Kuroji

妖怪の間でも噂になっているとはな、
光栄と捉えるべきなのか?

Seems the rumor's even spread to the youkai.
Should I consider that an honor?

???

わちが妖怪と知りながら逃げ出そうともしない
とは、免疫でもあるのかな?

So you know I'm a youkai, but yer' still not running away.
Do you have some kind of immunity to us?

Kuroji

真っ向しては初見となる。
ただし化け物じみた奴等は見慣れてる

This is the first time I've seen one of you directly.
But I'm quite used to seeing monstrous beings in general.

進退両難あまがっぱ
天宮 潤

Jun Amanomiya

Jun

なるほどね、
雨降り妖怪なんかでは驚かんわけか

Ah, I see.
A little ol' rain youkai would hardly scare you, then.

Kuroji

雨降り妖怪ね・・・うむ

So you're a rain youkai... hm.

Jun

何で攻撃態勢になったんじゃ?

Mind explaining why you're preparing to attack me?

Kuroji

なに、単なる可能性の問題だな

Oh, it's nothing. It's just a simple possibility.

Jun

妖怪退治でも生業にするつもりかい?
それなら、わちとやり合うのはやめた方がいい

Do you plan on making a living by exterminating youkai?
If so, I'd seriously suggest not fightin' me.

Kuroji

それはこちらが決める問題だな

I'll be the one to decide that.

BGM: カラクレナイ乃ナガグツ

BGM: Crimson Boots

Jun

仕方ない、適度に運動しなきゃあかんからな

Well, all right. It's good to get some exercise now and then, anyway.

Jun Amanomiya DEFEATED

Kuroji

弱い者イジメしてるみたいで
余り心地よくなかった

I basically just bullied a weakling.
That didn't feel very nice.

Jun

なっ? やめた方がいいと言ったろう?

Eh? I told you t' back off, didn't I?

Kuroji

なるほどな、老人の忠告は素直に聞くべきか

I see. Perhaps next time I should listen to what my elders tell me.

Jun

誰が老人じゃ

Who are you callin' old?

Stage 2[edit]

Unlost Woods

迷えずの森

Unlost Woods

 文字通り『蠢く』その森は
外敵からの侵入を阻み、
獲物の収穫だけを望んでいた、

意図して目指しても
森の奥に行けぬことから、
多くの者はここを
"迷えずの森"と呼び、
"迷いの森"を知る者は
現世に少ない、
非力な獲物、極上な獲物なら、
尚の事。

あなたは天敵?
それともご馳走?
まぁどちらにしろ、運が悪い。

That literally "wriggling" forest
prevented invasion from outside enemies,
hoping only to harvest prey.

Since one couldn't reach the depths
of the forest even if they tried,
many people came to call this
the "Unlost Woods".

If the only ones who know of it as
the "Lost Woods" are powerless prey
– the finest prey, scarce in today's world –
then all the better.

Are you a natural enemy?
Or are you the forest's feast?
Well, either way, you have bad luck.

Shou Amanomori ENTERS

Shou Amanomori EXITS

Kuroji

結局、雲が晴れないところを見ると、
さっきのマセ妖怪は元凶ではなかったか

Judging by how the clouds are still there,
I suppose that precocious youkai from before wasn't the cause.

Kuroji

よく考えてみると、
雲の中が一番怪しいんじゃないだろうか?

When I think about it,
wouldn't the inside of those clouds be the most suspicious?

Kuroji

天空の城みたいなものを隠す為に、
雲を発生させて・・・

Someone could have hidden something a castle in the sky
by generating a dense array of clouds...

???

見つけたぞ! 空飛ぶ人間!!

I found you! You flying human!!

Shou Amanomori ENTERS

Kuroji

見つかったようだな、空飛ぶ人間

Looks like the flying human got found.

???

お前の悪行、見過ごすわけにはいかん!

There's no WAY I'm letting your evil deeds slide!

Kuroji

おかしい、確かに売名が目的だったが、
そっちの方向のつもりではなかったのだが・・・

That's strange. I did plan on becoming famous,
but not in that particular sense...

これ以上イケナイコトを積み重ねるつもりなら、
怒るぞ!

If you keep piling on these heinous acts,
I'm gonna be REAL MAD!

Kuroji

おや、可能性が示唆され始めたな

Ah. Now a possibility is being hinted at.

Shou

な、何を言ってるんだ! このー・・・黒人間

E-Excuse me?! I'm being serious, you... you black human!

Kuroji

高まりつつある・・・
こういった手合いとは余り良い思い出がない

Possibility rising...
I don't remember having many good encounters with people like this.

Shou

潤の仇だ! 御成敗式目してやる!

By the Formulary of Adjudications, I will avenge Jun!

Kuroji

露呈しだしたな、確信へ近づいてきた

And now they've revealed their motive. Getting closer to confirmation.

Shou

うぅ、真面目に話を聞け!

Urgh, take what I'm saying seriously!

Kuroji

どうやら扱いやすそうだ、助かった

Looks like you're pretty easy to deal with. That's a relief.

Shou

くそっ! 後悔させてやる!

Damn it! You'll regret this!

Kuroji

向かってくる気か? 無駄な事は止めるんだな

You're gonna fight me? You'd better stop. It won't get you anywhere.

Shou

うるさい! 絶対に許さないんだから!

Shut up! I won't ever forgive you for what you did!

Kuroji

そうか、絶対に許さないのなら仕方ない

Not ever, huh? In that case, I suppose there's not much else to do.

Shou

えっ?

Huh?

BGM: ずるべた海索麺 ~ Act_the_FOOL_HAHAHA

BGM: Slimy Umisoumen ~ Act the FOOL HAHAHA

Kuroji

こちらも全力で反撃しよう

I'll just have to fight back at full power!

Shou

ひぃぃ〜

Hyeeek~

Shou Amanomori DEFEATED

Kuroji

一方的に喰らえる立場でない事を、
その身に染みこませておくんだな

That ought to teach you a lesson.
Don't think for a second that I'll just sit there on an attack's receiving end.

Shou

ぐすん、ひっどい・・・

*Sob*. You're just awful...

Kuroji

私が相手でよかったな、
同じ黒い奴はもっと酷いぞ

Be glad you didn't meet that other black human.
They're even more ruthless than me.

Shou

人間こわい

Humans are scary!

Stage 3[edit]

A Step in the Mud

泥濘への一歩

A Step in the Mud

 参道から人里へと通ずる道、
だが参拝客など最近では
滅多に来ない。
人々の求めるものは
神の冥福などではなく、
得手勝手な功徳なのだから。
そもそも、ここの住人には
一の鳥居をくぐることすら
出来ないのだから、
神徳を得られないのは
仕方の無い事・・・ 

なのかもしれないか・・・?

The path from the shrine road to the human village.
However, worshippers and such hardly ever
come by here as of late.
After all, what people demand isn't
the gods' protection in the afterlife,
but self-serving blessings here and now.
In the first place, the residents of
this land can't even pass through the
shrine road's first gate,
so it's no wonder that they can't
receive any divine virtues...

At least, one would suppose...?

Wait, crap. Hooaka was headed to the Human Village already...
What should I do?

Kuroji

ではやはり雲の中心地の真下まで行ってみるか、
無駄足にならなければいいが・・・

In that case, yes, I'll go directly under the center of the clouds.
Here's hoping it won't be a fool's errand...

Suspicious black-haired human found~! ♪

Kuroji

黒と呼ばれるには値しない、
別の適任者がいるからな

I don't deserve to be called 'the black one'.
There's another candidate for that.

???

そっちは白黒だろ? 噂で知ってるよ

That one's black-and-white, though. I've heard rumors about 'em.

Kuroji

なるほど、その通りだな・・・
じゃあ私が黒か・・・

Yes, I suppose you're right...
So I'm the black one, then...?

???

ハラ黒だったりして♪
あはっ、何か隠してそう♪

And maybe black-hearted, too! ♪

Lumen

あぁ〜、この曇り空の原因を探してたところだけど、
ようやく疑わしい奴に出会えた

Ah, right. I was searching for the cause of this cloudy sky...
and it looks like I finally found someone suspicious!

Kuroji

つまり私がこの雲り空を作り出したと

So you're saying I created this cloud-filled sky.

Lumen

人間のしそうなことだ

I wouldn't put it past a human!

Kuroji

本気で言っているように思えないな

You don't look like you actually believe that, though.

Lumen

実は君の秘密を知りたくなっちゃったんだ♪

Yeah, actually, I just wanted to know your secret. ♪

Kuroji

なるほど、服従が狙いか

I see. You intend to make me submit to you?

Lumen

ここのルールを作った人間は、
それはキレた奴だったねー

Yep! The human who made this place's
rules was really sharp.

Kuroji

随分と詳しいのね、
どうやらお年も随分召されてるようでもあるし

You sure know a lot about this place.
Which figures; you do seem to be getting on in years.

Lumen

うへへ、話をそらしてもだめよー♪

Uheheh. Don't try to change the subject, no~w. ♪

Kuroji

仕方ない、冥途の土産になら教えてあげよう

Fine, I'll tell you. As a parting gift for your trip to Hades, that is.

痛い目に遭うな

I shouldn't judge youkai by their appearance from now on.
It'll land me in trouble for sure.

Lumen

人間がそれを言うな〜

That's rich, coming from a human~

Kuroji

それじゃあ、冥途の土産にいい事教えてあげよう

Well then, as your souvenir for Hades, I'll tell you something good.

Lumen

わっくわくっ♪

Ohhh, I'm excited! ♪

Kuroji

私の名前は『にんげん』じゃなくて『くろじ』だ

Namely: my name isn't "a human". It's "Kuroji".

Stage 4[edit]

The Sodden Decaying Garden Beneath the Clouds

雲下、潤う腐る庭

The Sodden Decaying Garden Beneath the Clouds

日の光が当たらぬこの事態は、
夜の住民達が跋扈するのに
格好の空間となっていた。

しかし、
人間にも見られるように
秩序に縋る集団は
一つの社会を築く。
腐敗した世界に住む妖怪達も、
その例外ではなかった。

尤も、刹那的な構成の社会は
逆に世の秩序を乱すだろう。

With no sunlight shining down, this situation
made a perfect place for the denizens
of the night to run rampant.

However,
as one can also observe in humans,
groups that cling to order will soon
construct a central society.
Even the youkai living in this
decaying world were no exception.

Of course, ironically enough, this hastily-constructed
society will surely threaten the world's order.

It's gotten pretty dark... but not because of
the time of day. It's because of these clouds.

Kuroji

このまま進んで、結局また無駄足だったら
今夜の晩飯は抜きだな・・・

If I keep going this way and don't find anything,
there won't be any dinner tonight...

Kuroji

頬赤と蒿雀のな

For Hooaka and Aoji, that is.

???

おや、そこのあなた・・・
もしかしてお金にお悩み?

My, my! You there...
Are you perhaps experiencing money trouble?

Hibaru Kokutenshi ENTERS

Kuroji

凄いな、どうして分かった?

Wow, that's surprising. How did you know?

???

オーラが出てましたから、金欲っぽい色の

You're emitting an aura with a very avaricious color, you see.

Kuroji

そんなオカルトなものが見えるのカネ・・・[a]

You can see that? Occult stuff like that is a dime a dozen...

???

ほら、無意識の内に金オーラだしてるもん

You see? "Dime a dozen!" You're unconsciously emitting a money aura.

Kuroji

まぁオカルトなんてもう飽き飽きだったな・・・

Well, I'm pretty sick of occult stuff anyway...

Surprised that there's one in a retro-style country like this...

Kuroji

モノローグが大音量で漏れてるぞ

You've got the volume on your internal monologue cranked up too high.

Hibaru

いえ[b]いえ、ここでは『ご利用ありがとうございます』

Oh, no, I do apologize. In this country, that means
"thank you ever so much for your patronage". (big lie)

Kuroji

ならそう言えばいいだろ・・・・っということは、
私が外の人間というのはバレてるのか

Just say that in the first place, then...
Based on that comment, I assume you've figured out that I'm a human from outside.

Ri-toru, ri-toru. You want to rake in money that badly, hm?
How very vulgar...

Hobbyists with no deep meaning
behind their actions can be found

You may say otherwise, but chances are
you're one such hobbyist yourself, you know?

A giant clay container, rising beneath the clouds.
Just what was crammed in there,
and what was being refined within?

What will this ancient relic bear?
Something of the past? The present?
Or, perhaps, the future.

And all this, in spite of the fact that it'll
all just become mere memories and records.
This sort of thing is why eccentrics are hard to deal with.

Others of my kind say the same,
so it must be true, no?

I should've gathered up the others before this happened...
Three people could get this done faster.

???

こんなところまでくるとは・・・・・
とても人間の力とは思えないな

To think that you'd come all this way.....
I can hardly believe that your power is that of a human.

Adagumo no Yaorochi ENTERS

Kuroji

見るからに人間じゃない奴に言われたくないね

I'd rather not have that said to me by someone obviously inhuman.

???

この尾だけでそう判断してるのか? 軽薄だな

You'd decide whether I'm human just by seeing these tails? How flippant.

Kuroji

すまないね、尻尾の無い私には分からないもんで

I'm ever so sorry. It's hard for a tail-lacker like me to understand.

???

そうか、それは不憫なことだな・・・
情けとして貴様には名乗りの機会を与えよう

Is that so? How unfortunate for you...
As an act of sympathy, whelp, I shall give you an opportunity to tell me your name.

Kuroji

漬物候補に名乗るほど酔狂じゃないんでね、

I'm not crazy enough to tell my name to someone I'm about to pickle,

Yaorochi

なるほど、余程俺が気に喰わぬようだが、
何故だ?

I see. You certainly seem to dislike me.
Why is that?

Kuroji

名が体を表してないからだ、
七不思議の化身かお前は

It's 'cause your "eight-tailed" name doesn't match your body.
What are you, actually? An embodiment of seven mysteries, or something?

Yaorochi

結局表層のみにこだわるか、下らん人間だ

You're quite particular about surface appearances, it seems. What a miserable human.

Kuroji

人が物事を判断するにあたって、表層以上に
影響能力のあるものはないからな

If people want to determine what things are, there's nothing
more effective than surface appearances, after all.

Yaorochi

それは目が曇りし者の判断、
穢れなき瞳で深層を訪ねるがいい

That is a judgement made by those whose eyes are clouded.
It would do you well to look, with unsullied eyes, upon what lies beneath the surface.

Kuroji

八岐大蛇もどきに忠告されるような義理はないね

I'm not exactly obligated to listen to some Yamata-no-Orochi wannabe's advice.

Yaorochi

そこまで分かっておきながら、俺に歯向かうとは・・・
その粋だけは良し

You understand that much of my nature, and you still bare your fangs at me...?
Your wherewithal is admirable, if nothing else.

Kuroji

お前を倒せばさぞ有名になれそうだ、
売名売名〜♪

If I defeat you, I bet I'll get really famous.
Big publicity, here I come~♪

Yaorochi

名声がお望みか・・・
やはり器の小さき者よ

You desire fame...?
You certainly are small-hearted.

Kuroji

今欲しいのは名声じゃなくて、
明日の朝ごはんってところかな

It's not fame that I want right now.
I'd say I'm more concerned with getting tomorrow's breakfast?

Yaorochi

貴様の明日など、斬り裂いてくれる

With this sword, I'll tear that tomorrow of yours to shreds.

Kuroji

さっきから無視してたんだが、
その剣・・・何なんだ?

I've been ignoring it for a little while now,
but... what is that sword?

Yaorochi

我が命よりも尊き劔
『蛇叢剣(たそうけん)』

A sword more precious than my own life.
"Tasouken," it's called. The "Snake Thicket Sword".

Kuroji

まるで神器のような禍々しさだな

It sure does look ominous. About on par with the Imperial regalia, I'd say.

Yaorochi

神器を見たこともないくせによく言うが・・・
いかにも、是は神器なり

How bold of you to say that, when you've never seen the regalia yourself...
Indeed, this is one of those three treasures.

Kuroji

ほぅ、天叢雲劔がそんな形だったとは知ら[b]かった[b]
おとなしく熱田に返してこい

Oho. I didn't know the Ame no Murakumo no Tsurugi was shaped like that.
Be a good snake, now, and go put it back in Atsuta.

Yaorochi

流石にその名ぐらいは知ってるようだが、
果たして貴様の知る劔と同じものかな?

I suppose you would at least know that particular name.
But is this really the same sword that you're familiar with, I wonder?

Kuroji

バカにされるのはキライだ、
バカにするのが大好きだ

Y'know, I don't like being made a fool of.
I much prefer making fools of other people.

Yaorochi

歪んだその精神、剪定してやる

I shall take it upon myself to prune that distorted spirit of yours.

Kuroji

そりゃありがたい、
丁度伸びてきたところなんだ

Oh, gee, thanks.
I had been thinking about going and getting a trim soon.

Yaorochi

下らん・・・・・
そろそろ無意味な問答にも飽きたな・・・

How foolish.....
I've begun to tire of these meaningless questions and answers.

BGM: 深い徒雲の下で 〜 Mow_Down!

BGM: Below a Deep Vanishing Cloud ~ Mow Down!

Yaorochi
Kuroji

果てるがいい! 黒き鳥よ!
悔やむがいい! 欠陥品め!

You shall meet your end, black bird!
You're gonna regret this, you defective product!
