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 ENTERS

Jun Amanomiya EXITS

Tsubakura

あーあ、早く帰ってお風呂入ってご飯食べて
お酒呑んでお布団でおねんねしたい

Ah, geeze. I just want to go home already, have a bath, eat dinner,
have some booze and crawl under the bedsheets.

Tsubakura

・・・布団といえば、お前って洗濯どうすんの?

...Speaking of fabric, how am I supposed to wash you?[1]

Hat

・・・・・

.....

Tsubakura

だんまりかい、独り言になっちゃうじゃない・・・
近くに誰か居るのかしらねぇ~

The silent treatment? Great, now I'm just talking to myself...
I wonder if there's anybody nearby.

???

あんなに空が曇ってちゃ・・・

With the sky around here being so cloudy...

Tsubakura

あぁん?

Wha?

Jun Amanomiya ENTERS

???

洗濯物が乾かなくて難儀だろうに

It'll be difficult to dry your laundry in the rain, you know?

Tsubakura

干し柿も碌なのが作れないだろうに

It'll be tough to make dried persimmons worth a darn, too.

???

しかしこんなところに空飛ぶ人間とは、
時代も変わったもんだな

That aside, there's really a flying human 'round these parts?
Times sure have changed.

Tsubakura

頭に傘、雨降り妖怪に決定

Got an umbrella on your head there. I deem you to be a rain youkai.

進退両難あまがっぱ
天宮 潤

Raincoat Between a Rock and a Hard Place
Jun Amanomiya

Jun

何故おぬしに決定権があるのか知らないが
当たってるからまぁいいや

I really must wonder why you have the right to decide that,
but you're correct, so I s'pose it's fine.

Tsubakura

浄化決定

I also deem you a target for purification.

BGM: カラクレナイ乃ナガグツ

BGM: Crimson Boots

Jun

またもや何~故?

Once again, why??

Tsubakura

早くお風呂でご飯でお酒でお布団で,おねんねなんでね

Bath already, dinner, booze, crawl into bed. Or something.

Jun Amanomiya DEFEATED

Tsubakura

ちょろいね、異変もあっけなく終了~、完っ!

That was way too easy. The incident's over! Fin~!

Jun

それでもわちはやってないんじゃ・・・

But I haven't done anything, though...

Tsubakura

折角だから、人里に寄って
酒でも買ってから帰るか

Well, I'm already out here,
so I may as well buy some saké at the human village before heading back.

Jun

このまま放っとくんかい

You're just going to leave things like this?

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

Tsubakura

そろそろツッコミするけど、
なんで木が動いてんねーん

I don't mean to burst anyone's bubble here, but why are the trees moving?

Tsubakura

迷わせたいのかねぇ、実際迷っちゃいそうだが

Are they trying to make me get lost or something? I mean, it's working, but still.

Tsubakura

ウザったいから、一段落したら
全て伐採してやろうかな~

'S pretty annoying, so maybe I ought to just cut them all down~?

???

お前か! 潤に悪いことをしたのは!

So it's you! You're the one who was really mean to Jun!

Shou Amanomori ENTERS

Tsubakura

ん、邪魔

Hm. Obstacle.

???

おいおい止まれ、止まって

Hey, hey, stop. Stop right there!

Tsubakura

なんだよ、これからお前の相手をするので
忙しいんだから、どけよ

What's your problem? I'm about to fight you, so I'm
real busy right now. Get out of the way.

???

うん、ううん? かまってくれるの?

Uh... huh? So you're paying attention to me?

Tsubakura

あたしゃそんなこと言ってないよん

Ah ain't said nothin' bout that.

歩く潤滑剤
雨杏 宵

Walking Lubricant
Shou Amanomori

Shou

あぁもうっ! 面倒くさいっ!
とにかく止まれ!!

Augh, whatever! You're so annoying!
Just stop already!!

Tsubakura

やめられない止まらない

Can't stop, won't stop.

Shou

あ、そうだ、
それなら問答無用で止まらせてやればいいんだ♪

Oh, all right.
Then I guess I'll just stop you by force♪

Tsubakura

そりゃ良い案だ、健闘を祈る

Great plan you got there. I wish you luck in battle.

Shou

だから止まれって、宵の仇っ!

So hold it, already! I'm gonna get revenge for Jun!

Tsubakura

あ、やっぱり死んでたんだ、あれ

Oh. They died after all, then.

Shou

死んでてたまるか! 縁起でもない!

Like hell they'd die! Don't jinx them like that!

Tsubakura

確かに演技ではなさそうだな、
やっぱりお前もそういう手合いか・・・

You sure don't seem to be acting.
I guess you're just that sort of person, huh...

BGM: ずるべた海索麺 ~ Act_the_FOOL_HAHAHA

BGM: Slimy Umisoumen ~ Act the FOOL HAHAHA

Shou

いい加減にしろよ! 今から怒るからなっ!

That's enough outta you! I'm really gonna get mad now!

Tsubakura

有限実行、無限実行、
口は動かず体を動かせ、限定された永遠に

"Put your limits where your mouth is"; "actions speak louder than limits."
Move your body and not your mouth, for all of the eternity you're limited to.[2]

Shou

後悔すんよ!

Fine! I'll make you regret ever messing with me!

Shou Amanomori DEFEATED

Shou

後悔したー

I regret ever messing with you~.

Tsubakura

よく考えたら村から正反対の位置だった、
結構遠いなぁ・・・

Now that I think about it, I was headed in completely the
opposite direction from the village. It's gonna be a long way...

Shou

まぁどうでもいっか、
こんなことしてもどうせ雨は降らんし

Well, fine, whatever.
Even if I do this, it's not like it'll rain anyway.

Tsubakura

雲ってはいるんだがなー、
まぁ元凶も取り除いたし、直に晴れるだろう

Although it's still pretty cloudy...
Well, I already took care of the cause, so it ought to be nice and sunny soon.

Shou

晴れちゃダメなんだよー

But I don't want it to be sunny!

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...?

Lumen Celeritas ENTERS

Lumen Celeritas EXITS

Tsubakura

こんなことなら里の近くの雨降り妖怪やら,座敷童やらを適当に弾くんだったな

If I knew this was gonna happen, I ought've shot down that
rain youkai and zashiki-warashi closer to the village.

Tsubakura

けどもうすぐ里だな、
酒の銘柄って外と同じ・・・んな訳ないか

But, welp, the village should be right up here.
Would the saké brands be the same as outside? ...Bah, no way.

???

犯人発見っ!

Culprit spotted!

Tsubakura

なんで俺の周りはこんなのばっかなんだ?

Why am I always surrounded by people like this.

Lumen Celeritas ENTERS

???

類は友を呼ぶ・・・、
嵐の中心は意外と晴天だったりするもんさ

Birds of a feather flock together...
The eye of the storm is often quite calm, after all.

Tsubakura

的を得ているかもな、案外
射的勲章授与!

Huh. Actually, you might've hit the bull's-eye with that.
The shooting gallery medal goes to you!

???

こんなところに空飛ぶ人間・・・怪しい限りねぇ

A human flying around in a place like this... you're definitely suspicious.

Tsubakura

怪しいのはそのとおりだが、
何でここの連中はそう寒そうな格好が好きなんだ?

Well, I'll admit to being suspicious.
But why does everyone here like wearing such chilly clothes?

無頓着に収束する恩光
ケレリタス・ルーメン

Unconcerned Converging Sunlight
Lumen Celeritas

Lumen

ピッカピカッの発光生物は寒さ知らずなのさ!

A sparkly, fluorescent creature such as myself knows no cold!

Tsubakura

発酵、妖怪酒・・・意外とアリかもな

A fermentent creature?[3] Youkai saké... that might actually be pretty good.

Lumen

何か怖いことを想像してないかい?

I feel like you're imagining something terrifying??

Tsubakura

いやいや、気にせず蒸留されてくれ

Oh no, don't mind me. Just lemme distill you a bit.

BGM: プリズミックアクセル

BGM: Prismic Accelerator

Lumen

き、危険思想! 犯人確定!!

D-dangerous idea alert! You're the culprit for sure!!

Tsubakura

かかってこーい

Come an' get sooome.

Lumen

心も髪の毛も暗黒に染まったお前に、光あれっ!

Your heart is stained as dark as your hair! May light shine upon thee!

Lumen Celeritas DEFEATED

Tsubakura

ん? そういえば向こうの方、全然晴れてないな
・・・・・・雨降り妖怪消したのに

Hm? Now that I look at it, it's still cloudy over that way.
...Even though I got rid of that rain-falling youkai.

Lumen

少なくとも、あの曇り空はそこいらの妖怪の力を
遥かに凌駕しているよ

At the very least, the cloudy sky over there far surpasses
the power of some random youkai.

Tsubakura

へぇ、詳しいじゃん

Huh. You sure know a lot.

Lumen

えっへん

Ehehe.

Tsubakura

じゃあ、そのまま頑張って解脱しろよー

Welp, you just do your thing and ascend to Nirvana already.

Lumen

輪廻から外れた者に、そもそも解脱なんてないさ・・・

Those cast out from the cycle of reincarnation can't ascend in the first place...

Tsubakura

お前は莫迦なのか阿呆なのか、
・・・よく分からないな

Are you an idiot, or are you just plain stupid?
...I honestly can't tell.

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.

Hibaru Kokutenshi EXITS

Tsubakura

だいぶ暗くなってきたな・・・まだ日の暮れでは
ないってのに・・・・まったく

It's gotten real dark, even though it's not
sunset yet or anything... Hmph.

Tsubakura

第一、どこに向かえばいいんだか
なんかここらへん臭いし。

For starters, where should I even go?
This place kind of stinks, too.

Tsubakura

雲の下を適当に行けば何か見つかると思ったが
・・・・・さてはて、どうしたものか

I figured if I just flew beneath the clouds, I'd find something, but...
...Well, well. What to do now?

??? 

ややっ! 迷えるなんとか発見!

My, my! I spy a stray such-and-such!

Hibaru Kokutenshi ENTERS

Tsubakura

ラム肉は余り好きじゃないな、においがね・・・
ラム酒は大好きだけど

I don't really like lamb meat, since it stinks...
Although I do love rum.[4]

??? 

おややのや?
子羊じゃなくて、ただの人間だったか

Oh, what's this, what's this?
Not a stray sheep, but just a human?

Tsubakura

人間だって迷子になるぞ?
人生という名のめいr...

Even humans can wander astray, you know? In this labyrinth we call lif—

??? 

いやしかしこんなところに人間とは珍しい
リトルリトル・・・・

Jokes aside, though, humans are very rare to see around here.
Ri-toru, ri-toru...[5]

Tsubakura

人の台詞を遮るなって、
大日如来から教えてもらわなかったか?

Didn't Mahavairocana ever tell you
not to talk over other people's lines?

陽気な取立て屋
旭天子 ヒバル

Cheerful Debt Collector
Hibaru Kokutenshi

Hibaru 

失礼、なにぶんセッカチが取り柄なもんで

My apologies. Impatience is something I take pride in, after all.

Tsubakura

短所と捉えた方が、長所と成り得るんだがな

I mean, it'd reflect much better on you if you took it as one of your flaws.

Hibaru 

こちとら取立てで忙しい日々なんでね、
リトルリトル・・・

I'm quite busy taking the debts people owe us, you see.
Ri-toru, ri-toru...

Tsubakura

鳥の取立てやねぇ・・・
『一升貸して二斗取る』ってか

A bird taking debt payments, huh...
Because of how your cry sounds like "lend a penny, take a pound"?[6]

Tsubakura

それとも略して鳥取だから?
トリトリ・・・・・

Or, if we condense "tori no toritate", maybe you're from Tottori?
Tori, tori...[7]

Hibaru 

貴方も[8]お金にお困りでしたらどうぞウチの金融会社へ!
利子は月々たったの20倍!

It seems you're having money trouble. By all means, pay our financing company a visit!
Our interest rate is only 20 times greater per month!

Tsubakura

随分と勤労意欲のある営業方法だな、
真性の悪徳だがな。 砂丘にブチ込むぞ

Quite the work-dedicated business method you've got there.
Too bad you're well and truly crooked. I'mma shove you into a sand dune.

Hibaru 

あぁそうだ、そんなことより
君は太陽さんがどこに行ったか知ってるかい?

Oh, that's right. Besides that,
would you happen to know where Mx. Sun has run off to?

Tsubakura

お前の頭の中は随分と良い天気なんだな

The weather in your head must be real nice, huh?

Hibaru 

あの人は昔っからの常連様なんだけど
いまだに一度も返してもらったことないんだよね

They've been a regular patron since a long time ago,
but they've never returned a single loan all this time!

Tsubakura

御天道様なら見ての通り、
雲隠れなさってるじゃないか

If you're looking for the sun, they're hiding
behind the clouds. As one can plainly see?

Hibaru 

なんと! まさか夜逃げするとは・・・
リトルリトル・・・

My word! To think they'd flee under the cover of night...!
Ri-toru, ri-toru...

Tsubakura

なかなかユニークな洒落だとでも思ったのか?

Did you think that was a nice, inspired joke or something?

Hibaru 

それでは、貴方が立て替えるということで

Now, with that, I'll have you pay the debt on their behalf.

Tsubakura

なるほど、つまり誰でもいいってことね

Ah, I see. So any victim is fine.

Tsubakura

脳味噌までリトルな奴だな

Looks like even your brain was "little", in the end.[9]

Hibaru 

ひぇ〜、お強い方でしたか、
失礼いたしました〜

Eeek, you were a tough customer?!
I'm so terribly sorry~!

Tsubakura

お前みたいな奴に取り立てを任せる
金融会社の気が知れない

I can hardly imagine what your company was thinking,
sending someone like you out to collect the debts.

Hibaru 

何を!? こう見えても
踏み倒されには定評があるんですから!

Excuse me?! Despite my appearance,
I have quite a reputation for fraud, you know!

Tsubakura

どこから見ればそう見えないのか、
是非とも教えてもらいたいもんだ

Just what part of you doesn't look like that?
I'd really love it if you could tell me.

Stage 5[edit]

The Road of the Haniwa Leading to the Ritual Chamber

埴輪街道、儀式場前

The Road of the Haniwa Leading to the Ritual Chamber

素焼きの埴輪が
不気味に並ぶ一本道、
折に触れて埴輪の数が
増えるようだが...。

全く持って何の意味もない、
好事家とはどの世界にも
いるものだ。

そうこう言うあなただって、
どうせその一人なんでしょう?

Here on this path with unglazed
haniwa eerily arranged in rows,
it seems like the number of haniwa
increases from time to time...

Hobbyists with no deep meaning
behind their actions can be found
in just about any world.

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

随分と奇抜な建物だなぁ〜、いやはや素焼きとは...
こりゃ巨大な土器だな

What an unconventional building. Unglazed pottery, my my...
Looks like this is a giant clay sculpture.

Tsubakura

この曇り空の中心らへんに位置する・・・な
うーん、匂うな・・・調べるか

And placed right in the center of the clouds... huh.
Mm, smells suspicious... shall I investigate?

??? 

臭くにゃーい!

It doesn't stink, nyah!

Tsubakura

にゃー

Nyaaah.

Sukune Katano ENTERS

??? 

臭くにゃいー!
ちゃんとこの作品だって消毒消臭しとるっちゅーのー!

It DOESN'T stink, nyah!
All my works're properly dis'nfected an' deodorized, yanno!

Tsubakura

いや、そういう意味で言ったんじゃ・・・

Uh, no, that's not quite what I meant...

??? 

臭くにゃーいょ!

It doesn't stiiiink!

Tsubakura

うーん、そっか・・・じゃぁお前が悪臭の原因か?

Err, all right... so are you the source of the foul smell?

??? 

悪どい臭いがするのはおみゃーの方だよー
ここに何しに来た?

Yer the one who smells like foul play!
What'd ya come here to do?

Tsubakura

ちょっくら平和を取り戻しに

Just to do a little peace-restoring.

??? 

なんと! 正義の味方様でちだかー
こりゃーこりゃ・・・

What?! So yer an ally of justice...?
My goodnesh, my goodnesh...

Tsubakura

ってのは冗談だが

Just kidding, though.

??? 

えっ! だ、騙くらかされたぁー!?

What! Y-you trick'd meee?!

Tsubakura

謀ったんじゃなくて冗談だ、
そこのニュアンスの違い大事

I wasn't tricking you, I was telling a joke.
Very important difference in nuance, there.

??? 

ひどいやっちゃー

That was awful of ya...

Tsubakura

まぁ御天道様を取り戻しにきた訳だから
正義の味方ってことでもいいかもな

Well, I am here to restore the sun,
so I guess "ally of justice" could work fine.

??? 

なんだい、やっぱり正義の味方様じゃーないか、
間際らしいにゃー

What? So yer on the side of justice after all!
Real misleadin' of ya...

Tsubakura

お前も単純な奴だな、その他大勢と同じで

You're a simpleton, huh. Much like most others.

??? 

うんにゃ、よく言われるっちゅー、えへっ

Eeyep, I get that a lot! Heheh.

Tsubakura

その単純に免じて
ちょっとそこを通してくれないか?

Mind letting me pass, then,
on account of that simpleness?

??? 

残念ながら単純にダメー
ここから先は正義の味方通行禁止だにゃー

Sorry t'say it, but that's simply not happenin'!
The placebeyond here is off-limits to allies of justice, nyah.

Tsubakura

そんな立て札どこにも見当たらないが?

I don't recall seeing any notice boards to that effect?

??? 

そんなものは今から創るっちゃー

Well, I can craft one up right now!

Tsubakura

出来上がるまで待ってるとでも思うのか?

Do you seriously think I'll wait around until you're done?

??? 

にゃに、ほんの数秒で出来るわいー

Sure do! It'll only take a few secondsh.

Tsubakura

へぇ

Huh.

Th'name's "Sukune Katano"! I can sculpt the earth
into any shape what-so-ever!

Tsubakura

なる~、この建物もお前さんお手製ってわけね、
この土師職め

I see~. So this building is one of your handmade
works, you Haji craftsworker scoundrel.[10]

Sukune 

ご名答、僕があっちゅー間に創ったもんにゃー

Correct indeed! I made the whole thing in only a moment'sh time, nyah!

Tsubakura

そりゃ随分と手抜き工事で

Guess you must've cut a lot of corners while building it, then.

Sukune 

手抜きなんてとんでもにゃい、
懇誠込めて創ったっちゅー

Cut cornersh?! Ya got some nerve!
I put my whole heart an' soul into makin' it!

Tsubakura

確かに、土で家を作るなんて無駄に凄い手間だな、
俺も泥団子なら作ったことあるが・・・

Making a whole house out of dirt is some stupidly impressive
labor. I made mud balls once, but that's about it...

Sukune 

泥団子でも立派な作品、
ただし僕と君では完成度が違うだろうにぇー

Mud balls're yet another example of fine artwork!
Although the onesh I make are far more perfect~.

なんでこんなチャランポランがー?

S-so strong...!
How could someone so slipshod have beaten me...?!

Tsubakura

そうやって表層だけを重視してるからさ・・・
じゃあここは通らせてもらうな

See, that's why. You value surface-level appearances too much...
Well, I'll be heading on through here.

Sukune 

待っちくれ〜、
今は大切な儀式の真っ最中なんだっちゅー

Wait up, wait up~.
We're in the middle of an important ritual right now...!

Tsubakura

儀式か・・・ますます良い響きだ

A ritual...? I like the sound of this more and more.

Sukune 

待つ気なしかい

Yer not gonna wait?

Tsubakura

もちろん。
儀式ってのは邪魔する為にあるんだからな

'Course not.
Rituals exist to be interrupted, after all.

Sukune 

はぁ、こんな品性もセンスもなさそうな奴に
負けるのうてー・・

Haaah. I can't believe such quality lost
t'someone with no sense a' aesthetics...

Tsubakura

そう言うが、俺の作る泥団子は光るし浮くんだ[8]
ピッカピカのフッワフワ

You may say that, but the mud balls I make both glow and hover.
Nice and sparkly, nice and floaty.

Sukune 

そんな泥団子があってたまるかぃー・・・

You call those mud balls...?!

Tsubakura

まぁステレオタイプはそこでしばらく寝てな

Now, now, let's put the stereotypes to rest for the moment.

Sukune 

ぐうぅー・・・

Guuu...

Final Stage[edit]

Inside the Ritual Chamber ~ Clear Evening Sky

儀式場内部~夕晴

Inside the Ritual Chamber ~ Clear Evening Sky

雲下に聳える強大な土器、
一体何を詰め込み、
何を煮詰めていたのだろうか。

太古の遺物が孕むものは、
過去か、現在か、
それとも未来か。

それら全ては只の記憶と記録
になるというのに、
これだから酔狂者は度し難い。

類が自身をそう言うのだから、
間違いないだろう?
友よ。

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?
My friend.

確かに、永眠するにはまだ早いぞ
折角見逃してやったってのに

It's too early for your eternal sleep, true.
Even though I went to so much trouble letting you escape.

Sukune 

今度はこっちが寝させちゃる!!

Yer gonna be the one takin' a dirt nap thish time!!

あれまぁ・・・雲がパックリ割れてるわい

My my... those clouds just split right open, they did.

Tsubakura

天孫降臨ごっこでもしてんのか?
まぁ中々に幻想的風光と言うべきかな・・・

Tryin' to re-enact Ninigi's descent or something?
Well, I suppose it's a pretty fantastic spectacle all the same...

??? 

そいつは良かった

How nice of you to say that.

Tsubakura

お、なんかいる

Whup, someone's here.

Adagumo no Yaorochi ENTERS

??? 

最後に目に焼き付ける光景としては満足か?

Is this view satisfactory as the last thing that will be burned into your eyes?

Tsubakura

物騒な事を言うのが趣味のようだな

Wow. Guess you make a hobby of saying pretty ominous stuff.

??? 

今日は凄く気分がいいからな、だからだ

I am in a supremely good mood today. That is why.

Tsubakura

気分によって趣味が変わると

So your hobbies change according to your mood?

??? 

あぁ、おそらくな

Yes, most likely.

Tsubakura

度し難いな、自分自身の感情でさえ
完全に理解できていないとは

You don't even understand your own emotions perfectly?
You're just incorrigible.

??? 

この世で自分の事以上に理解出来ない事なんて
無いであろう?

There is nothing in this world that's harder to
understand than one's own self, surely?

Tsubakura

理解不能、我思う故に吾亦紅(われもこう)
根はその心の出血にピッタリな止血剤

Inconceivable. "I think; therefore I am burnet."[11]
The roots of which are also a perfect hemostatic for a bleeding heart.

??? 

そう言うお前は自身の事を
きちんと理解しているというのか?

By that, do you mean to say that you understand
yourself perfectly well?

Tsubakura

愚問甚だしい、何せ俺はこの世で最も
俺のことを理解している俺だからな

What a stupid question! After all, out of all the me's
in the world, I'm the one that understands myself most.

??? 

理解し難い言葉の列だな

Quite an incomprehensible string of words.

Tsubakura

俺にはこんな陰気な曇り空が好きなお前の方が
よっぽど理解し難いけどな

If you ask me, though, you and your fondness for these
gloomy clouds are far more incomprehensible.

??? 

あぁ、この曇天か・・・
案ずるな、次期に晴れる

Ah, these clouds...?
Worry not. They will clear away in time.

Tsubakura

あら、そうなの? じゃ、あたしゃ
骨折損の草臥れなんちゅらじゃないの

Oh, will they? So then what did I do all this
hard work for, exactly?

??? 

ご所望ならばこの程度の叢雲、
今すぐにでも薙ぎ払ってみせようか?

If you so desire, I can easily mow down and sweep away
this meager gathering of clouds in an instant.

Tsubakura

薙ぎ払う・・・雲を?
その尻尾で持ってるのは扇子か何かなのかな?

Mow and sweep away... the clouds?
Is that thing you're holding in your tail a fan or something?

大蛇の末裔
徒雲 八尾呂智

Descendant of Orochi
Adagumo no Yaorochi

Yaorochi

我が名は『徒雲 八尾呂智』、
今日は記念日なんだ

My name is "Adagumo no Yaorochi,"
and today is a commemorative day.

Tsubakura

あぁどーも、『燕楽 玄鳥』
しがない薬屋ですよ(嘘) ・・・記念日って?

Er, yes, hello, I'm Tsubakura Enraku,
a humble medicine peddler. (lying) ...Commemorating what?

Yaorochi

そう、この劔との再会の記念日なんだ

Why, none other than my reunion with this sword.

Tsubakura

その劔、只の剣じゃないな?

That's not just any regular sword, huh?

Yaorochi

ほぉ、この霊力が分かるのか?
この劔は・・・

Oh, can you sense its spiritual power?
This sword, you see...

Tsubakura

『天叢雲劔』か・・・・厄介だな(勘)

Is the "Ame no Murakumo no Tsurugi"...? That ain't good. (just a hunch)

Yaorochi

っ!
・・・・・何故、貴様がそれを知っている?

...!
...And how, exactly, do you know that fact?

Tsubakura

さて、なんでだろうな・・・?
(当たっちゃったよ)

Hm, I wonder. How indeed...?
(Hey, lucky guess!)

Yaorochi

この劔のことを知ってるということは・・・
・・・さては貴様、奴らの手先だな?

If you know about this sword's true nature...
...You're one of their agents, aren't you, you whelp?

Tsubakura

どっかで聞いた事ありそうな台詞だな・・・・・
なに、単なる当てずっぽだ、余り深読みするな

I feel like I've heard a line like that somewhere before...
C'mon, it was just a lucky guess. You're reading too much into it.

Yaorochi

再び我々からこの劔を奪うつもりか?

Do you intend to steal this sword away from us once again?

Tsubakura

おーい、聞けよばーか

Helloooo? You listening, dummy? Anyone home?

Yaorochi

いいだろう、ならば丁度良い・・・
貴様をこの劔の最初の試し斬りとしよう

Very well. This works out perfectly...
You shall be the first thing I test this sword out on.

Tsubakura

そんな霊験灼たかな剣の操、
俺の血で穢したくねぇな

Y'know, I'd hate for my blood to sully the honor
of such a miraculous sword...

Yaorochi

神器の淵源『蛇叢剣(たそうけん)』、
その霊験をその身体と記憶に刻むといい!

Behold the origin of the imperial regalia, "Tasouken"!
Carve its miraculous power into thy body and memory!

Tsubakura

あーぁ、戦う気はもうないんだけどな〜、
とんだ大物狩りになったなぁ・・・

Ahhh, god, I really don't feel like fighting any more, though~.
This sure turned into a big game hunt...

Yaorochi

覚悟はいいか? ゆくぞ

Are you ready? Here I come.

Tsubakura

自分の[8]話に夢中になると周りの言葉が全く[8]聞こえなく
なるタイプだな、仕方ない・・・やるかぁ

Looks like you're the kind of person who gets so into their own spiel that they
ignore what everyone else is saying. Not much choice, I guess... here we go.

BGM: 深い徒雲の下で 〜 Mow_Down!

I'll turn you into a saké side-dish, you reptile!

  3. Pun on hakkou (発光, "light-emitting") and hakkou (発酵, "fermentation")
  4. Pun on "lamb" and "rum", both pronounced ramu (ラム) in Japanese.
  5. Meant to be the sound of a skylark's cry. Can also be read as ri toru (利取る, "take debt"), in line with folklore about the sun owing debt to a skylark, which Hibaru is based on.
  6. Ichi-shō kashite ni-to toru (一升貸して二斗取る) literally means "lend one shou, take two to" (shou () and to () being archaic units of volume). The cry of a skylark was likened to this phrase in ancient Japan.

  12. "Spiders of dawn" (朝蜘蛛 asa kumo, sounds like "Adagumo") are said to be a good omen, which one shouldn't kill.
