闡裡神社縁側

At the veranda of the Senri Shrine.

八尾呂智「・・・・寒いぞ、まだまだ」

Yaorochi: "...It's still cold."

 无現里は相変わらず霊魂と寒さに覆われていた。

 神社には過去、例に無いほど大勢の人物が集まっていた、
 突っ立ってる奴、壁を背に座る奴、コタツにもぐってる奴、
 寒さなんてへっちゃらで、外で遊んでる奴
 意地でも部屋に入ろうとせず、寒いのをガマンしながら縁側で座ってる奴などなど、
 それぞれがそれぞれの好きなように立ち振る舞っていた。

Yes, Mugenri was still blanketed in souls and freezing cold.

The shrine was host to a bigger gathering of people than it'd ever seen in the past.
People standing around, sitting against the wall, sinking into the kotatsu,
playing around outside with zero concern for the cold,
stubbornly enduring the cold on the veranda while refusing to actually enter the room, et cetera,
all of them behaving in their own personal ways.

  玄鳥「霊がいなくなってないからな、仕方ない」
八尾呂智「我々の苦労は無意味だったってことか?」
  宿禰「この子を追っ払ってもだめなんだぎゃね」
 シオン「だってボクの所為じゃないしー」

Tsubakura: "Yeah, 'cause the ghosts didn't go anywhere. Nothin' to do about it."
Yaorochi: "Does that mean our struggles were meaningless?"
Sukune: "Even drivin' away this kid didn't fixsh anything, nya."
Shion: "Of course it didn't. It wasn't my fault."

 はぁ・・・っとため息を吐いたのは文門だった。

Fumikado let out a long, exasperated sigh.

  文門「霊魂は結界の穴から漏れ出てるって聞いたよ、
     ・・・こっちはとんだトバッチリだ」
  玄鳥「じゃあやることは簡単だな、その穴を塞ぎゃーいい」
 シオン「だね」
  藪雨「だにゃ~」
  宿禰「だぎゃにゃ~」
八尾呂智「流石にそれはお前らの役割だろう、闡裡神社」
  玄鳥「ヒトを建物の名で呼ぶのが趣味かい? オロチン」
  宿禰「けど新人の神主にココの結界を直せますかにゃ?」
  藪雨「ツバなら何でも出来るでしょー?」
  玄鳥「知らん」
 シオン「霊魂いないとお腹減るし、別に寒くてもいいじゃなーい」
八尾呂智「冗談じゃない、冬眠するハメになる」
 黒巫鳥「そのまま永眠してればいいだろ」

Fumikado: "I heard that the souls are leaking from a hole in the barrier.
    ...You louts made a total scapegoat out of me."
Tsubakura: "That makes things easy, then. All you gotta do is plug up the hole."
Shion: "Yep."
Yabusame: "Yeppers~."
Sukune: "Yip-yip-yippe~rs."
Yaorochi: "If that's not your job, Senri Shrine, I don't know what is."
Tsubakura: "Is calling people by the names of buildings your hobby or something, Orochin?"
Sukune: "But can a coupla' rookie priests really fix Mugenri's barrier, nya?"
Yabusame: "Tsuba can do just about anything! Right, Tsubsa?"
Tsubakura: "Meh. Dunno."
Shion: "Hey, I'll get hungry if there's no souls around. And who cares if it's cold, anyway?"
Yaorochi: "This isn't a joke. I'll wind up hibernating if this goes on much longer."
Kuroji: "Just sleep for eternity."

 各々が勝手気ままに駄弁を弄していると、
 闡裡神社の式神、ジンベイが部屋に気だるそうに入ってきた。

As each of them went on babbling about whatever they felt like,
the shikigami of the Senri Shrine, Jinbei, came sluggishly into the room.

ジンベイ「あー、結界のことでしたら、たぶん大丈夫ですよ」
  玄鳥「おぉ、大先生が何かご存知のようだぞ、皆の衆、心して聞け」
ジンベイ「玄鳥さんの処理は置いといて」

Jinbei: "Oh, um. If you're talking about the barrier, it'll probably be fine."
Tsubakura: "Oh my goodness, it seems that our Great Teacher has knowledge to share with us. Pay close attention, everyone."
Jinbei: "Leaving aside Tsubakura's disposal for the moment..."

 玄鳥に対しての死刑宣告をさらっと言って、ジンベイは続けた。

After casually giving Tsubakura a death sentence, Jinbei continued without missing a beat.

ジンベイ「穴の修繕なら知り合いの結界屋の棟梁に既に頼んでありますから、
     その穴が原因なら、この霊魂も寒さも無くなるでしょう・・・いずれ」
  藪雨「さすがジンベイちゃーん♪ 僕たちの知らないところで手際がいーね!」
  玄鳥「頼りない奴等ばかりだからな、この神社は」

Jinbei: "I already asked a master barrier carpenter who I'm acquainted with to repair the hole.
   If that hole is the cause of the incident, then both the souls and cold will naturally disappear... at some point."
Yabusame: "That's our lil' Jinbe~i! ♪ You're always so efficient with stuff we have no idea about!"
Tsubakura: "Yeah. The shrine's full of layabouts, after all."

 ジンベイの言いように何かひっかかった八尾呂智は白い息を吐きながら口を開いた

Yaorochi, who'd been given pause by something Jinbei said, spoke through the white fog of their breath.

八尾呂智「"既に"っと言ったが、一体どれくらい前に依頼したんだ?」
ジンベイ「えーっと・・・・・結界がアホ偉人に壊されてからすぐに...」
  玄鳥「数ヶ月前か」

Yaorochi: "You said 'already.' Just how long ago did you request this person's help?"
Jinbei: "Um, well... right after the barrier was broken by that moron hero..."
Tsubakura: "So months ago, then?"

 一同が呆然とした静寂の後、一瞬間を置いて八尾呂智が立ち上がった。

After a brief moment of stunned silence from the group, Yaorochi stood up.

八尾呂智「遅い、斬ってくる」
 シオン「真っ先に怒ったオロチンでした」
ジンベイ「いえ、ココは由緒正しき闡裡神社の威厳の為、神主どもに行かせます」
  宿禰「ジンベイも怒ってるぎゃー」
  玄鳥「"ども"って言ったな、この式神」
 黒巫鳥「いやまて、こちとら折角金の稼ぎ場を見つけたんだぞ?
     霊魂を止めてもらっちゃ困るな」
 シオン「真っ黒な腹のクロジでした」
八尾呂智「あの連中からまだ搾り取りたいのか・・・」
 黒巫鳥「霊が尽きるまで、売り飛ばさなけらばならない」
  玄鳥「復活計画に協力者が増えたってわけか・・・資金面の問題がありそうだがな」

Yaorochi: "They're LATE. I'll go cut them."
Shion: "And thus did Orochin get angry in a matter of mere seconds."
Jinbei: "No. This has to do with the dignity of the ancient and honorable Senri Shrine. I'll make the priests deal with it."
Sukune: "Jinbei'sh angry too, gyah~!"
Tsubakura: "What do you mean, 'make'? Lousy little shikigami..."
Kuroji: "No, wait. I've finally gotten my hands on of a source of income thanks to this incident, you know?
    Stopping the flow of souls would leave me up the creek."
Shion: "Thus said the black-hearted Kuroji."
Yaorochi: "You're still trying to squeeze money out of that Taira lot...?"
Kuroji: "I've got to keep selling off souls until there's none left."
Tsubakura: "Looks like the revival plan's got another collaborator on board... although this'll probably lead to financial problems."

 それぞれがまだ見ぬ結界屋に不満を述べていると、
 手を数回叩きながらジンベイが一同を纏めた。

While everyone aired their grievances with the still-unseen barrier carpenter,
Jinbei clapped their hands several times and commanded their attention.

ジンベイ「ともあれ、カチコミに行くなら2人以上でいった方がいいですよ、
     なんせ相手は結界屋『アズマテラス』の誰かですから」
  藪雨「じゃあツバと行くー♪」
  玄鳥「俺は行きたくない」
 シオン「ボクも行くー♪」
  玄鳥「お前は来んな、廃人が量産される」
八尾呂智「こっちも数には問題ない」
  宿禰「勝手に数に加えられたにゃ・・・」
  玄鳥「黒巫鳥は赤いのと青いのがいるな」
 黒巫鳥「いや、もっと"便利な奴"がいる」
八尾呂智「誰か知らんが"不憫な奴"だな・・・」 
ジンベイ「それで、どうするんですか? 皆さんでゾロゾロ行きますか?」
  藪雨「あっ! それ良ぃー...」
  玄鳥「勘弁至極」
八尾呂智「黒と同じ」
  宿禰「蛇と同じ」
 黒巫鳥「土と同じ」
 シオン「みんな仲良いねぇ~」
ジンベイ「それじゃ決めましょうか、どなたが行くかを」
  藪雨「僕たちが行くよー」
  玄鳥「行かなきゃいい加減殺されそうだからな」
八尾呂智「じっと待っているなど、我慢ならん」
  宿禰「ま、そういうことじゃにゃ~」
 黒巫鳥「結界の修理は阻止する、どんな手を使ってもな」

Jinbei: "If you're going to go rough them up, it'd be best to go in groups of at least two.
  The opponent is someone from the Azumaterasu barrier shop, after all."
Yabusame: "Okay, then I'm gonna go with Tsuba! ♪"
Tsubakura: "Don't wanna."
Shion: "I wanna go too! ♪"
Tsubakura: "No, not you. You'd leave a trail of coma victims in our wake."
Yaorochi: "I have enough people on my end already."
Sukune: "Y'added me to the count without even askin', nyah..."
Tsubakura: "Kuroji's got Red an' Blue to back them up, too."
Kuroji: "No, I've got someone who's much more useful."
Yaorochi: "I've hardly any idea who that is, but they certainly sound pitiful."
Jinbei: "So, what are you going to do? Are you going to rush in en masse?"
Yabusame: "Ah, that's a good idea too!"
Tsubakura: "Absolutely anything but that."
Yaorochi: "Ditto what the inkblot said."
Sukune: "Ditto what the snake said."
Kuroji: "Ditto what the dirt clod said."
Shion: "Wow, everyone's getting along~!"
Jinbei: "All right. Shall we decide who gets to go, then?"
Yabusame: "We'll go!"
Tsubakura: "Or rather, we're probably dead meat if we don't."
Yaorochi: "I can't bear to stand around any longer."
Sukune: "Well, you heard the reptile, nyah~."
Kuroji: "I'm going to prevent the barrier from being repaired. I'll stop at nothing."

ジンベイ「ふぅ~、騒がしいですが、みなさんそれぞれ言い分があるようで、
     ではでは・・・・いつもので、よろしいですね?」

Jinbei: "Phe~w. It seems that you all have your own reasons for going, noisy as you may be.
   So... shall we decide with the usual?"

『じゃんけんと殺し合い、どっちがいい?』

"Rock-paper-scissors or a fight to the death. Which do you like better?"

 ―――霊が蔓延る无現里
     異変の根源となる大結界の風穴
      そこに待つのは因縁か、運命か、宿命か
       この世界の全貌を知る者は、無知なる者を軽蔑する―――

---Mugenri, overrun by spirits.
 A windy hole in the Great Barrier, the origin of the incident.
  What awaits them there? Fate, fortune, or destiny?
   Those who know the full picture of this world look down in scorn on the ignorant...
