Stage 1[edit]

Shrine Road Where Nothing Piles Up — Snow

堆積せぬ参道---雪

Shrine Road Where Nothing Piles Up — Snow

人肌の温もりが恋しくなる
この季節だが、
无現里は例年よりも凍てつく
雪肌に抱擁されていた。

夏鳥達は疾うの昔に南に去り、
蛇も蛇穴に籠るはずなのだが、
どうやらこの世界には
そんな常識は通用しないらしい。

・・・埴輪はどうかって?
どうしてそんなことを聞く?

Despite being the season of longing for
the warmth of another's skin, Mugenri
was embraced by a skin of snow
even more freezing than usual.

The summer birds should have long since departed
south, and the snakes should be hibernating in
their holes, but it seems that such common sense
doesn't apply in this world.

... "What about the haniwa, though?"
Why are you even asking that?

Saragimaru

はぁ・・・・

*Sigh*...

Kuroji

どうした? 元気がないじゃないか?

What's wrong? Are you feeling down?

Saragimaru

・・・元気があるほうがどうかしてる
と思わないか?

...Don't you think it would be weirder if
I wasn't feeling down right now?

Kuroji

まぁこうも寒いとな・・・

S'pose so. It's quite cold, after all...

Saragimaru

そうじゃない、それもあるけど・・・
それ以上に自分が不憫すぎて...

No, not that— I mean yes, it's cold, but that's
nothing compared to the pity I'm feeling for myself...

Kuroji

脅迫は今回限りにしといてやるよ(大嘘)

Don't worry. You won't hear any more threats from me after this. (big lie)

Saragimaru

1回だけでもイヤなもんはイヤなんだ

Even if it's just this one time, it's still plenty unpleasant!

Kuroji

くどい

Talkative, aren't you.

Saragimaru

まだまだ言い足りないくらいだ

Oh, believe me, I've barely even gotten started.

Kuroji

まっ、言うだけならタダだからな、存分に言ってろ

Well, talk is cheap. So if talking's all you're doing, do it as much as you like.

Saragimaru

うぅ・・・・

Ugh...

???

なんだかさー

Y'know, uh...

Kuroji

あ?

Oh?

Sese Kitsugai ENTERS

???

すごーくギスギスしてるねー、友達じゃないの?

This is a suuuper prickly conversation you're having? Are you, like, not friends?

Saragimaru

・・・なにこいつ?

...What's with this kid?

自分探し中の骸
乞骸 セセ

A Corpse in Search of Themself
Sese Kitsugai

Sese

セセだよー! 骨っ子だよー!!

I'm Sese! A bone youkai!

Kuroji

弾くぞ、生死は問わない

Shoot 'em down. Dead or alive doesn't matter.

Sese

へぇっ!?
まってよ! どうしてどうして問答無用!?

Huh?!
Wait! Can't we talk this over or something?!

Kuroji

問答無用、お前の首には賞金がかかってる

Nope. There's a bounty on your head.

Sese

えーなんで〜

Eeh? Why~?

Kuroji

墓荒しだったかな・・・
やるなら目撃されないようにやるんだな

For grave robbing, I think it was...?
If you're gonna do it, don't leave any witnesses.

Sese

あれは発掘だもん!

I was just doing a little excavation!

Saragimaru

他人の死体を無断で発掘することを
『墓荒し』っていうんじゃないのか?

I'm pretty sure that excavating other people's corpses
without permission is the definition of "grave robbing"?

Kuroji

ところでこの国は土葬なのか?

By the way... they bury their dead in this land, do they?

Saragimaru

さぁな、人間達の暮らしなんて興味ないし

Who knows? I couldn't care less 'bout how the humans live.

Sese

どっどっどっ、どうしよ〜

Wh-wh-wh-what am I gonna do~?

Kuroji

まぁ大した額じゃないがな、
引きずってく手間を考えると赤字かもな

Well, it's not exactly a huge bounty. Considering how much
trouble it'd be to drag you back, it might be a net loss...

Sese

じゃー見逃して♪

Then lemme off the hook! ♪

Kuroji

目の前に落ちてるのがたとえ小銭でも拾うだろう?
誰だってそーする、私もそーする

But if there's money right in front of you, it's only smart to take it, right?
Even for a small amount. Just about anybody would. Same goes for me.

Saragimaru

単に意地汚いだけだろ・・・

Pretty sure you're just greedy...

BGM: ムクロマンサー 〜 抜け殻の夢

BGM: Cadaveromancer ~ Dream of an Empty Husk

Sese

こうなったら、正当防衛だーっ!!

You've left me no choice but to defend myself!!

Kuroji

その言い訳、もらった

Nice excuse. I think I'll take it.

Saragimaru

あーぁ

Aaah...

Sese Kitsugai DEFEATED

Kuroji

そこそこ霊魂もってたな
当人の命より価値がありそうだ

Looks like the bone-kid had some souls on 'em, too.
I bet we'd get more for these than for their life.

Saragimaru

本当にそんなのが金になるのか?

Do you really think we'll get any money for these things?

Kuroji

価値が無くとも、買い取らせる

Even if they're worthless, we'll make sure someone buys 'em.

Saragimaru

また被害者が増えるのか・・・

Looks like there's even more victims on the horizon...

Kuroji

霊魂のほうがコイツの首より軽いから、
死体はそのままにしとくか

Since the souls are more valuable than their head,
should we just leave the corpse there?

Sese

死んでないもん...

I'm not dead yet...!

Kuroji

ほぅ

Oho.

Saragimaru

黙ってればよかったのに・・・

You should have just stayed quiet...

Stage 2[edit]

A River Enchained by Ice

堅氷に鎖された川

A River Enchained by Ice

流水は結氷し難い
・・・っと記憶していたが、
どうもそうでもなかったらしい、

霊は水を好む、
ならば水場が他より冷えるのは
当然の帰結だ。
水が集う先である川端は、
もはやセセラキすら発する力も
ないらしい。

寒さとはヒトからもモノからも
力を奪っていく。

はてさて、そうなると
奪われた力は一体どこへ・・・?

Flowing water rarely freezes.
...Or so one recalls, at least,
but it seems that's not the case here.

Spirits like water, so it's a
natural consequence that bodies of
water become colder than other places.
It seems that the riverbank
where the water gathers no longer has
the strength to even trickle along.

Cold drains the strength from
both humans and objects.

Now then, if that's the case, just where
is that drained power headed off to...?

BGM: くぐもる冷気、鎮もる霊気

BGM: A Muffled Chill, a Subsiding Aura

Tsugumi Umatachi EXITS

Saragimaru

う、うぅ〜、ううぅ〜・・・・寒い

Uuughh, uuuhh~... It's so cold.

Kuroji

そうか・・・・
よし、先を急ぐか

Are you now...
Welp, we'd better pick up the pace.

Saragimaru

・・・心配してくれるとは思ってなかったが、
お前はそんな格好でよく平気だな

...I'm hardly surprised by your total lack of concern,
but you do seem weirdly comfortable wearing that getup in this weather.

Kuroji

『心頭滅却すれば火もまた涼し』ってことだ

"Extinguish mundane thoughts from one's mind, and even fire will feel cool," as they say.

Saragimaru

今は火が熱くてもいい

I'd rather have the fire feel hot right about now.

Kuroji

だいたい寒がる奴がする格好じゃないだろ、
お前だって

Well, if you're so sensitive to cold,
why are you dressed like that?

Saragimaru

うるっさいなぁ・・・
ここまで寒いとは思ってなかったんだよ

Shut uuup...
I wasn't expecting it to be so cold.

???

くぅらぁー!

Graaaahhh!

Tsugumi Umatachi ENTERS

Kuroji

見ろよ、バカが出た
これで少しは暖かくなるだろ

Hey look, a moron showed up.
This ought to warm things up a little.

???

うっさいわアホんだら!
お前らさっきから邪魔ばっかしおってー

Shaddup already, ya dolts!
Ah've had enough of you two gettin' in my way!

Saragimaru

何であのナス動いてるんだ?
あんまり美味しそうじゃないが...

Why is that eggplant moving?
I mean, it hardly looks tasty or anything, but...

茄子を綾なす騎手
馬立 ツグミ

Eggplant-Decorating Jockey
Tsugumi Umatachi

Tsugumi

ナスちゃうわ! 馬じゃ!

This ain't an eggplant! This here's a horse!

Kuroji

よく今の季節に手に入ったな
あんなデカいナス

You must've done well to find such a huge eggplant
in this season.

Saragimaru

そういえば意地汚いお前だが、
食べ物には興味ないのか?

Hey, speaking of. I know you're voraciously greedy,
but are you not interested in food?

Kuroji

あのナスなら金になりそうだから興味がある

I'm interested in that eggplant, since I could get a high price for it.

Tsugumi

なんや!? やらんで! これはワシんじゃ!!

What?! Like hell! This here horse is MINE!!

Saragimaru

かわいそうに、もうお前のじゃないんだ・・・

Oh, you poor thing. It's not gonna be yours for much longer...

Kuroji

そういうことだ

That's how it goes.

BGM: ゲットレディー号 〜 to_run_around!

BGM: Get Ready... Go! ~ To Run Around!

Tsugumi

やるっつーんならやったるで! かかってきな!

If you want a fight, ah'll sure give you one!
Come'n get some!

Saragimaru

罪が重なっていく・・・

And so the crimes pile ever upward...

Kuroji

ミルフィーユみたいで魅力的だろ?

Yeah, like mille-feuille. Don't you think it's got a nice appeal to it?

Tsugumi

蹴散らしてやるわい!

I'll trample ya!

Tsugumi Umatachi DEFEATED

Tsugumi

蹴散らされちまったわい

I got trampled...

Kuroji

ナスまでボロカスになっちまった
コレじゃ売れないな

Drat, even the eggplant got all beat up.
Certainly can't sell this.

Saragimaru

大体、持って帰るのが難しかったろ

Carrying it back with us probably woulda been harder, too.

Tsugumi

これじゃ仕事が出来んわい・・・

How am I gonna do my job now...?

Kuroji

どうやら霊魂を集めていたみたいだな
ライバルを早めに処理できてよかった

Looks like our little jockey friend was gathering souls, too.
Glad we dealt with this rival as soon as possible.

Tsugumi

ライバルやて〜? なんのことじゃ?

Rival? What're ya talkin' about?

Saragimaru

なんだか・・・・・
とんでもない手違いをしてそうなんだが・・・

Somehow....
I think you're making a terrible mistake...

Kuroji

気にする程のことじゃない

It's nothing worth dwelling on.

Saragimaru

その自信はなんなんだ・・・

And what makes you so confident...?

Stage 3[edit]

The Giant's Hiding Place

巨人の隠れ穴

The Giant's Burrow

季節はずれの幽霊達は
結界の穴を塞がない限り
無尽蔵に湧き出てくる。

だがその穴とはどこに
あるのだろうか?
果たして目に見えるものなの
だろうか?

生兵法は大怪我の基、
ヘタに穿鑿すれば
とんだ薮蛇になるかもしれない。
穴の中に籠るモノに限って、
触らぬ神だったりするのだから。

それが大きな洞窟だとしたら、
相応の大いなるモノの
隠れ穴かもしれないよ。

まぁ、そうとも限らないけどね。

Until the hole in the barrier is sealed,
these out-of-season ghosts will continue
to gush forth without end.

But where could that hole
possibly be?
Is it something that can be seen
to begin with?

Scant knowledge is a dangerous thing.
Unskilled scrutiny may only lead to
rattling the cage of something horrible.
Things that lurk in holes tend to be
things better left alone, after all.

And if that hole is a giant cave,
it may be the hiding place
of something equally big.

...Well, not always, though.

BGM: フォーリンゴースト

BGM: Falling Ghost

Fujiwara no Iyozane ENTERS

Fujiwara no Iyozane EXITS

Saragimaru

そういえばさ

Hey, now that I think about it...

Kuroji

ん?

Mm?

Saragimaru

集めた霊魂は誰に渡せばいいんだ?

Who exactly are we gonna hand these souls off to?

Kuroji

看板に書いてあった連絡先は"藤原伊代真"って
書いてあったかな

Well, the contact info on the signboard had
"Fujiwara no Iyozane" written on it?

Saragimaru

藤原・・・なんかイヤな感じ・・・

"Fujiwara"... I've got a bad feeling about this...

???

ヒトを名前だけで判断しないで欲しいなぁ

Could you not judge someone by their name alone, please?

Fujiwara no Iyozane ENTERS

Kuroji

そう言うアンタが伊代真さんか?

Based on that comment, I assume you're Iyozane?

時代錯誤の野心家
藤原 伊代真

Anachronistic Ambitious Person
Fujiwara no Iyozane

Iyozane

ごめーとーぅ
霊魂を集めてきてくれたんだね

Exa~actly right!
Looks like you gathered up a lot of souls for us.

Saragimaru

よかった、これで終わるんだな!

Hooray! Our job here is done!

Kuroji

渡す前に聞きたいんだが、霊魂なんか集めて
どうする気なんだ?

Now, before I hand them over, may I ask
why you're gathering these things?

Iyozane

う〜ん、まぁ折角集めてきてくれたんだし、
教えてあげよう

Mm~m, I guess you did go to the trouble of getting them for us.
Sure, I'll tell you.

Iyozane

詳しい方法はよく知らないけど、
ある御方を復活させるのさ

I'm not quite sure how we're doing it,
but we're gonna use them to revive an exalted personage.

Saragimaru

ある御方?

An "exalted personage?"

Iyozane

その方が復活して无現里の皇となった暁には
私は関白となるのさ〜、偉いだろ〜

When the day comes for them to revive and become the emperor of Mugenri,
I'll become their chief advisor~! Totally awesome, right~?

Kuroji

无現里の頂点は闡裡神社じゃないのか?

I thought Mugenri's summit was the Senri Shrine?

Iyozane

そういう見解もあるかもね、
けど闡裡は頂点のみの存在

I guess you could see it that way.
But Senri exists as just a summit, and nothing beyond that.

Iyozane

麓も中腹もない山なんて、山とは言わないだろ?

A mountain with no foothills or midsection can hardly be called a mountain, right?

Saragimaru

八尾呂智様以外の頂点なんて存在しないがな

Master Yaorochi is the only one at the summit in my book, though.

Kuroji

定説には様々な異説が付き物ってわけだな

Established dogma always comes with dissent, I suppose.

Iyozane

それじゃ、霊魂を頂こうか

A'ight, so how 'bout you gimme those souls?

Kuroji

金が先だ

Payment first.

Iyozane

おやや、信用されてないね

Oh my, it seems you don't trust me.

Saragimaru

ふ〜、これでようやく帰れる・・・

Whe~w. Now I can finally go home...

Kuroji

金はどこだ?

Where's the money?

Iyozane

あ〜、ちょっと今は持ち合わせがなくてね、
後払いってことでどうかな?

Oh, u~m, I sort of don't have it with me right now.
How about we agree to a deferred payment?

Kuroji

交渉決裂ってわけか

So this negotiation is over, then.

Saragimaru

ど、どうしてそうなる・・・・?

W-why's that...?

Kuroji

払う気の無い奴に、後払いも先払いもない

No such thing as "deferred" or "advance" payment if they've got no intention of paying to begin with.

Iyozane

バレたかぁ

So the jig is up, huh...?

Saragimaru

おいぃ〜、話をややこしくしないでくれ〜

He~ey! Don't go making things more complicate~d!

Music stops

Kuroji

騙す相手を間違えたな、
素直に渡せば事なきを得たものを

You tried fooling the wrong person.
If you'd just paid up, you could've gotten off scott-free.

BGM: 幽暗海峡ヨーソロー

BGM: In the Gloomy Straits, Steady as She Goes

Iyozane

愚民共にやる銭などない

I've got no money worthy of you commoners' wallets.

Kuroji

金を払う気がないなら、
それなりの対価を支払ってもらわなくちゃな

If you're not willing to pay with money,
we've just got to make you pay something of the same value.

Saragimaru

もう・・・なんでこうなる?

Geez... why is this happening?

Iyozane

平伏すがいい! 卑しい愚民共めっ!

Prostrate thyselves before me! You pair of lowly commoners!

Fujiwara no Iyozane DEFEATED

Kuroji

大したことない関白だったな

Didn't put up much of a fight for a "Chief Advisor".

Saragimaru

偉ぶるのが仕事の奴が強いわけないだろ

Of course someone whose whole job is to act high and mighty would be a pushover.

Iyozane

二対一でよく言うよ

Excuse you! It was two on one.

Kuroji

一対一でもう一回いっとくか?

Shall we try again, but with one against one?

Iyozane

遠慮します・・・

I'll have to pass...

Saragimaru

それで、どうすんのさ、これから
打出の小槌は単なる木槌だったようだが?

So like, now what?
Seems like our golden goose laid a bunch of regular ol' eggs.

Kuroji

なんか復活させるつもりだったんだろ?
騙されてムカついたし、邪魔でもするか

They said they were gonna revive someone, right?
I'm in a foul mood from being tricked, so how about we crash the party?

Iyozane

それだけは勘弁してくれよぉー

Spare us that, at least...!

Kuroji

黙れ関白

Shut it, Chief.

Iyozane

すんすん・・・・けどまぁいっか
さっきも二人通しちゃったし

*Sniff*... eh, well, whatever.
I let another couple of people in a while ago anyway.

Kuroji

なんだ、先客がいたのか?

What? We've been preempted?

Iyozane

お前らもさっきの奴等と一緒にあの御方に
やられればいい

You and that other pair can just head on in.
Our exalted ruler will just pulverize all of you at once.

Iyozane

そして私は怒られるんだ、どうせ
それもこっぴどく

Aaaand I'm gonna get scolded anyway, so whatever.
Ugh, I am so in for it this time...

Kuroji

黒幕がまだいるんだな、楽しみだ

Looks like there's still a mastermind in store. I can't wait!

Saragimaru

ところで、
僕はその仕返しにも付き合わなくちゃいかんのか?

By the way,
do I still have to tag along for this revenge scheme of yours?

Kuroji

別に初めっから頼んだ覚えは無い
ただ私の口は随分とおしゃべりなんでね

I don't remember ever really asking you to come along.
It's just that I can be quite the blabbermouth.

Saragimaru

一緒に行けばいいんだろ・・・・・
はぁ・・・・・・

Yeah, yeah, I just gotta come with. I got it...
*Sigh*.....

Kuroji

いやぁ〜、素晴らしく献身的な奴だ、
ウチの連中も見習って欲しい

My~, what wonderful devotion you have.
I wish my other charges could learn from your example.

Saragimaru

ロクな死に方しないからな、お前

You are definitely not gonna have a pleasant death.

Kuroji

死ぬなんて器用なこと、出来るわけないだろ

Oh, no, I could never manage to do something as skillful as dying.

Iyozane

なんか忘れられてない・・・私?

I feel like we're forgetting something here. ...Me, maybe?

Stage 4[edit]

The Cavern From Which Frost is Born

結氷が産みし洞窟

The Cavern From Which Frost is Born

滝壺の奥には大きな洞窟が
アリの巣のように広がっていた。

岩には苔、苔には氷が覆い、
似たような光景が方向の概念を
奪っていく。

もはやどれが辿ってきた川
なのか、
見当がつかなくなっていたが、
行き先に迷う心配はなかった。

何故なら霊魂と冷気が、
目指すべきの目的地を
教えてくれるのだから。

Deep beyond the waterfall basin, a giant
cavern spread out like a nest of ants.

Rocks covered with moss, which were in turn
covered with ice... the repetitive scenery
stole away one's sense of direction.

By now, it had become impossible to tell
which river was the one they'd followed,
but there was no fear of losing sight
of their destination.

Why, you ask? Because, of course, the
flow of spirits and frigid air told them
exactly where to go.

BGM: それぞれの思惑と足跡

BGM: Each of Their Thoughts and Footprints

Saragimaru

なぁなぁ、もう帰らないかぁ?
もうイヤだよ、こんなこと・・・

Look, can't we just go back already?
I'm sick of all this...

Kuroji

直に慣れる
それに騙されたからには報復が必要だろ?

You'll get used to it soon enough.
Plus, you have to get revenge after being deceived, right?

Saragimaru

報いを受けるべきは誰なんだろうな・・・

And just who should be on the receiving end of that revenge, hmm...?

???

あっー!!

Aaah!!

Kuroji

んっ、聞き覚えのある声だ

Mm. That sure is a familiar voice.

Yabusame Houlen ENTERS

Yabusame

黒巫鳥さぁーーん!!

Kuroji-saaaaaaan!!

Saragimaru

神社のバカの方の神主か

One of the shrine's priests? ...The dumb one, specifically.

Kuroji

天才の方はどうした? 留守か?

Where's the smart one? Are they not here?

Tsubakura Enraku ENTERS

Tsubakura

居留守だな

I'm at least pretendin' I'm not here.

Kuroji

そう、その憎たらしい顔だ、
相変わらずだな玄鳥

Yes, now that's the damnable face I know.
You haven't changed at all, Tsubakura.

Saragimaru

神社の奴等が何してんだ?

What are you shrine people up to this time?

Yabusame

あたたかくしに来たのー!

We're here to make it warm aga~in!

Tsubakura

寒さの原因を探してたんだが・・・
何か成り行きでな

Well, we're looking for the source of all this cold...
But we're kind of, ehh, winging it.

Saragimaru

この先に寒さの原因があるのかっ!?

Wait, the source of the cold is up ahead?!

Kuroji

そんなことはどうでもいい

That doesn't matter right now.

Saragimaru

うん、どうでもよくない!

Yeah! It definitely DOES matter!

Tsubakura

お前らこそ何やってんだよ
っていうか二人はどういう関係なんだ?

Well, what are you doing here?
In fact, what are the two of you even doing around each other?

Yabusame

また悪いこと考えてるでしょー?

I bet you're up to something re~al nasty again, aren'tcha?

Saragimaru

・・・やっぱり有名なのか、そっちの方面で

...So you really are famous around these parts.

Kuroji

心外だな、昔からの友を中傷するなんて

Really? Slandering an old friend like that? Unbelievable, honestly.

Tsubakura

脅迫して友を増やしてる奴が言うことじゃないな

That's rich, comin' from someone who makes new friends by threatening 'em.

Saragimaru

そのとおり!

YES! EXACTLY!

Kuroji

お前は黙ってろ

Quiet, you.

Saragimaru

はい

Yes'm.

Yabusame

やっぱりいじめてたのね、可哀相なオロチンさん

Aww. Poor little Orochin is totally getting bullied...

Saragimaru

・・・・・

....

Tsubakura

訂正すらしないとはな・・・・・
忠実な"友"を得たな、黒巫鳥

Not even a word of objection, huh...
You sure found yourself a faithful "friend" there, Kuroji.

Kuroji

まぁな、・・・だが厄介な事になった

Eh, well. ...However, it looks like we've got another nuisance on our hands.

Tsubakura

だろうな、お前にとっては

Eeeyup. From your perspective, at least.

Saragimaru

・・・・・(嫌な予感)

....(I have a bad feeling about this.)

Kuroji

お前らに先を越されては、私の気が済まない

I'll hardly be satisfied if I let you two get ahead of us.

Yabusame

気が済まないって・・・?

What do you mean, hardly satisfied...?

Tsubakura

つまり俺達に"帰れ"ってことだな

In other words, they're telling us to scram.

Kuroji

流石だな玄鳥、話が早くて助かる

As quick on the uptake as ever, Tsubakura! You're such a big help.

Saragimaru

・・・・・(なんでこうなるんだか...)

....(Why on earth is this happening...?)

Music stops

Tsubakura

けどこっちも仕事だからな〜、面目もあるし
いっちょやるしかないか

But y'kno~ow, we still have a job to do here. Plus a reputation to keep.
No choice but to give it a go, right?

BGM: ダブルキーパー 〜 魄い盧のつがひ鳥

BGM: Double Keeper ~ White & Black Twin Birds

Yabusame

やるのーっ!

Let's do iiiiit!

Kuroji

たまにはお前の思惑を打ち砕いてやるさ

I ought to break your expectations at least once in a while.

Saragimaru

・・・・・はぁ、やるしかないのね

....*Sigh*. I guess I have no choice, huh.

Yabusame Houlen AND Tsubakura Enraku DEFEATED

Yabusame

やられた〜♪

We got be~eat! ♪

Tsubakura

ヤラレター

We got beeeeat.

Saragimaru

なんだ、結構あっさり勝っちゃったな
こんなんで大丈夫か、あの神社?

Y'know, it feels like we won pretty easily there.
Is that shrine gonna be all right with people like you?

Kuroji

燕楽玄鳥を舐めないほうがいい

A word of advice: don't underestimate Tsubakura Enraku.

Saragimaru

ほ? どゆこと?

Huh? What's that mean?

Kuroji

この戦いで誰が一番得をしたか、ってことだ

Think for a second. Who benefited the most from this fight?

Tsubakura

これで帰ってダラダラできるな

Now we can head back home an' laze around to our hearts' content.

Yabusame

だね〜

We sure can~!

Saragimaru

・・・嵌められたのか、僕達は

...Did we just get taken for a ride?

Kuroji

そもそも、私が燕楽玄鳥に勝てるはずがないだろ

In the first place, there's no way that I could win against Tsubakura Enraku.

Saragimaru

恥ずかしくないのか、それで?

You're not embarrassed to be saying that?

Kuroji

自分より有能な者を称えることは、
恥じる事では無いからな

Nope. There's no shame in praising those
who are more capable than you, after all.

Saragimaru

だからって、何で誇らしげなんだか・・・

I mean, sure, but why're you saying it like you're boasting about it...?

Tsubakura

そんじゃー後は任せたよ〜、俺達は帰って寝るから

A'i~ght, you two can deal with the rest. Since we're going home t' sleep an' all.

Yabusame

その前にご飯食べるの♪
今晩は暗黒物質ラーメンだよ〜

But first, we're gonna have supper! ♪
Tonight's menu is... dark matter ramen~!

Kuroji

ま、これでコチラもやりやすくなったことには
変わりない

Well, this still means that we'll have
an easier time from here on out.

Saragimaru

・・・協力するって選択肢は初めっからないのか...

...Was cooperating never an option to begin with...?

Stage 5[edit]

Road of Misogi ~ Spirits' Crossing

禊道〜魂の通り

Road of Misogi ~ Spirits' Crossing

洞窟を進んでいると、
いつの間にか地上に出ていた。

辿り続けていた川に流れている
ものは水でも氷でもなく、
もっとずっと
禍々しいモノだった。

あたりを漂う霊魂も、
いつのまにかその数を減らし、
僅かに残っているものも
蛍火の様に弱々しい光を
放つだけだった。

ただ、霊が発していた不気味な
歌声だけは消えず、
禍々しい川そのものが代わりに
謳い続けていた。

血管の脈動のようにうねる川と、
時偶過ぎ去っていく強い存在感
は、
ありとあらゆるモノの
身と声を震わせた。

After proceeding through the cave, the
path suddenly emerged back above ground.

That which now flowed through
the river they'd followed was not
water, nor ice, but something
much, much more ominous.

The spirits drifting around, too,
had dwindled in number,
and the scant few that remained
only emitted weak light
like that of fireflies.

The ghosts' eerie voices alone,
though, had not vanished,
and the ominous river itself
now sang in their place.

The river pulsing like a blood vessel,
and the strong sense of presence that
swept through from time to time,
caused the body and voice of every
single thing there to tremble.

Fujiwara no Iyozane ENTERS

Iyozane

来たね! ここで足止めをさせてもらうよ!

So you came! I'm gonna have to put a stop to you here!

Kuroji

いつの間にか先回りされてたみたいだね

Looks like they got ahead of us at some point.

Saragimaru

あんだけ遊んでればなぁ

Well, we did spend a while playing around back there...

Iyozane

少し予定が狂ってるみたいだが、
関白になりたいから邪魔はさせない!

It looks like our plan's gone a little off-kilter,
but I want to be chief advisor, so I won't let you get in our way!

Fujiwara no Iyozane DEFEATED

Kuroji

さっ、てっ、とぅ・・・
どうやら終点も近そうだな

We-ll the-n...
It seems like we're closing in on our destination.

Saragimaru

はぁ〜、ほんとーにようやく終わるのか〜

Haa~aah, really? Is it fi~nally gonna be over...?

Kuroji

残念そうだな、
まぁ短いようで長い旅だったからな...

Too bad, huh?
It may have felt short, but this really was a long journey...

Saragimaru

お前の自信過剰っぷりに慣らされるほどな

Long enough for me to get used to your overconfidence, yeah.

Kuroji

なんだ、寂しいな

Aw. That makes me feel kind of lonely.

Saragimaru

虚言癖にもな

Also your habitual lying.

???

なっ、なんだお前らは!?

W-Who are you two?!

Kuroji

おや、どうやらお出ましのようだ

Oh, it looks like someone's made their big entrance.

Taira no Fumikado ENTERS

???

怪しい奴らめ・・・・
なるほど、"アレ"は貴様等の仕業か!

You suspicious-looking louts...!
Ah-hah. That thing must have been your doing, huh?!

Saragimaru

アレ? お前、既にもう何かやったのか?

"That thing?" Did you do something awful again already?

Kuroji

免罪まで許容するほど私は寛大ではないぞ

Excuse you. I'm not so generous that I'll let false accusations slide.

???

いや、アレは他人が成せる事ではなかったか・・・
原因があるとするなら、それは私自身・・・・

No, on second thought, that wasn't something someone else could pull off...
If there even was a root cause, it'd have to have been me...

Saragimaru

なんか勝手に落ち込んでるぞ・・・

Uh, they went and calmed down on their own...

Kuroji

・・・お前が霊を集めてた黒幕か?

...Are you the mastermind who wanted all those spirits?

???

あぁ? なんなんだアンタらは?

Eh? And who're you?

Saragimaru

この方こそ、泣く子も騙す悪逆無道の鬼畜皇帝、
鵐 黒巫鳥さまだ!!

Behold! The most evil, unreasonable, and treacherous person you'll ever meet,
who deceives even crying children: the Brute Emperor, Lord Kuroji Shitodoooo!!

Kuroji

ノリノリだな、気でも触れたか?

Wow, someone's excited. Did you lose a screw or two back there?

Saragimaru

吹っ切れることにした

Deceided t' blow off some steam.

???

っで、そのクロジ様が私に何のようかな?

So, what do you want from me, Lord Kuroji?

Kuroji

霊魂を集めたんだが、
そちらさんで買い取ってもらえなくてねぇ

We collected the souls for you,
but somebody doesn't want to buy them all of a sudden.

???

霊魂集め?
そりゃ伊代真に全て任せてるんだけどなぁ・・・・

Soul collecting?
Well, ehh, I sort of let Iyozane take care of that whole business...

Saragimaru

そのイヨザネさんが払えないって
言ってるんだよぉ!?

And what we're tryin' to tell you is that
this Iyozane of yours isn't paying up, see?!

???

そんなこと言われてもなぁ〜
私ぁ知らんよ

Well, y'know, even if you come complainin' to me...
It ain't really my business?

Kuroji

部下の失態の責任は上司がとるもんだろ?

It's the boss's job to take responsibility for their underlings' mistakes, yes?

Saragimaru

たっぷりと搾り取ってやろう

We're gonna wring every last cent outta ya.

???

まぁ話はどうあれ、親皇の復活を邪魔するとあらば
容赦はしないがね

Well, whatever the case, if you plan on interfering with the
True Emperor's resurrection, I won't show you any mercy.

Kuroji

親皇、か・・・・
さっきの奴も言ってたが、一体何者なんだ?

The True Emperor, huh...?
Your cohort said something similar a while ago. Just what does that mean?

新帝の盃
平 文門

The Vessel for the New Emperor
Taira no Fumikado

Fumikado

将門公・・・我等の唯一の皇なり

Master Masakado... the one and only emperor fit to rule us.

Saragimaru

なっ! 平将門だとっ!!?

What?! Do you seriously mean Taira no Masakado?!

Kuroji

ワカサギ釣りのつもりが、
どうやらこいつぁカジキマグロだったようだな

Oh my. We went out to catch some pond smelt,
but it looks like we've reeled in a marlin.

Kuroji

しかし、彼の大怨霊を蘇らせるとは、
とんだ狂者だな

But reviving a vengeful spirit as great as his?
You must really be insane.

Fumikado

怨霊か.....まったく・・・
やはり貴様も"見ぬ者"か...

"Vengeful spirit"...? Tch, the nerve...
Looks like you're just as blind as the rest...

Kuroji

盲目なのはお前の方じゃないのか?
それとも将門に憑かれてるのか?

Aren't you the one who's blind, here?
Or are you just that obsessed with Masakado?

Fumikado

しかし見たところ、
貴様等は"都"からの使者では無いようだな・・・

Far as I can tell, though, you two aren't messengers
from the capital city or anything...

Saragimaru

・・・少しヤバイ奴を相手にしてるかもな

...I get the feeling we're up against someone who's really bad news.

Kuroji

さっきの二人ほどヤバイ奴等はいないさ

Don't worry. Nobody could be worse than those two from earlier.

Fumikado

平民どもめ、そっちにも言い分があるみたいだし
少し遊んでやろうか?

Well, it seems that you peasants have some complaints against us too,
so how about we have a little fun?

Saragimaru

撤退の許可を願います

I hereby request permission to withdraw.

Kuroji

断固として却下

Firmly overruled.

Fumikado

どうせ逃げられっこない・・・・
そうだ! 霊魂でダメなら、生霊で試してみるか

Not like I'd let you run at this point anyway...
Wait, got it! If using dead souls didn't work, why don't I try again with your live ones?

Saragimaru

聞いてる感じでは、どうも上手くいってないようだ
復活計画

From what I've heard so far, things don't seem to be going well
with your resurrection plan.

Fumikado

ちょっとしたアクシデントがあってね・・・復活計画

Well, there was a little accident. ...With the resurrection plan.

Kuroji

失敗したのか、復活計画

So you screwed up? With the resurrection plan.

Music stops

Fumikado

ま、貴様等に話したところで何にもならない

Well, explaining it to the likes of you wouldn't accomplish much anyway.

BGM: ムーンチャイルド 〜 Homunculus Dream

BGM: Moon Child ~ Homunculus Dream

Fumikado

しゃーないから、さっさと蹴散らして
儀式に戻らせてもらおう

Ain't got much choice, here. I'll trample the both of you
and get back to the ritual nice and quick.

Saragimaru

気を引き締める必要がありそうだぞ

I think we ought to brace ourselves for this one.

Kuroji

差し出口を挟むな、私より弱いくせに出しゃばるな

Can it with the needless comments. Someone weaker than me shouldn't be so uppity.

Saragimaru

意見具申も許されないのか・・・

What, I can't even offer an opinion...?

Fumikado

安心しな、きちんと手加減してやるって
お前らは大事な最初の供物なんだからな!

Don't worry, I'll make sure to go easy on you.
You've got a very important job, after all; as our first sacrifice!

Taira no Fumikado DEFEATED

Saragimaru

なんとか勝てたか

Whew. We won, somehow?

Kuroji

威勢に見合った力量だったか

So they had the skills to match their energetic attitude...

Fumikado

せめて片方だけでも落としたかったなぁ〜
出来れば黒いほう

Bah. I wish I could've at least beaten one of you~...
Preferably the one in black.

Kuroji

嫌われ者の黒いほうは儀式の邪魔がしたいのだが
どうすればいい?

The oh-so-hated one in black would like to mess up your ritual.
Any advice on that topic?

Fumikado

この先を進めばいいんじゃないか?
もうどうでもいいさ

Like, just keep going forward, I guess?
Not like it matters any more, anyway.

Saragimaru

なんか投げやりになってるな・・・

It feels like they're just dropping the whole thing...

Fumikado

お前らもメチャクチャにされればいい
私達の計画をメチャクチャにした奴に

I'm looking forward to seeing you get trashed too.
By that thing that trashed our plan.

Kuroji

・・・まだ何かいるのか、厄介だな...

...Still something else around, hm? Sounds bad...

Saragimaru

閣下、どうしますか?

What now, Your Excellency?

Kuroji

進むしかないだろ 玄鳥達は帰ったみたいだし
我々で何とかしないとな

No way to go but forward. Yabusame and Tsubakura already left,
so it's up to us to do something about this.

Saragimaru

ははぁ〜、御意に従います〜

Ah hah ha~ah! As you wish, sire~!

Kuroji

・・・バカにしてるのか?

...Are you mocking me?

Final Stage[edit]

Withered Grove ~Place of Arrival~

木枯れの園 〜往き着く場所〜

Withered Grove ~Place of Arrival~

色を失った花。
子供が白いキャンバスに
墨で塗りたくったような
落書きの花。

それは不気味で、
不恰好で、
歪で、
怪しく、
冷たく、
儚く、

そして、純粋だった。

A flower that lost its color.
A flower that looked like
a child's scribble, like ink
painted over a white canvas.

It was uncanny,
unshapely,
distorted,
suspicious,
frigid,
fleeting...

and pure.

BGM: アフターオール

BGM: After All

Kuroji

随分と気味の悪い花だな、
妙な色と形をしてやがる

What a creepy-looking flower.
Got a real strange color and shape...

Saragimaru

オマケにデカいな

Huge, too.

Kuroji

それで、そこで寝てる奴が
さっきの奴の計画を崩した奴かな

And I imagine that kid sleeping down there
is the one who ruined our Taira friend's plans?

Saragimaru

寝てる間に闇討ちでも喰らわせてやりましょうか
閣下?

Shall we hit 'em with a sneak attack while they're asleep,
Your Excellency?

Kuroji

おいおい、何をそんな卑怯な事を...

Hey, come on now. Why would we do something so cowardly...?

Saragimaru

よかった、流石にそこまで墜ちてなかったか

Phew, that's good to hear. I guess even you haven't fallen that low.

Kuroji

だが化け物相手に卑怯もクソもなかったな
・・・・・ヤれ

But there's no such thing as "cowardly" when dealing with a monster.
....Get 'em.

Saragimaru

墜ちる以前に、こいつは生粋の悪魔だった・・・

Welp, so much for falling. They were a demon from the moment they were born...

???

う〜ん・・・

Mm~mm...

Kuroji

ちっ、起きたか

Tch. They woke up?

Shion ENTERS

???

寝てないよ〜、話は聞こえてたよ
ボクに非道い事するつもりだったんでしょ?

I wasn't sleeping~! I heard the whole thing.
You were gonna do something really awful to me, weren't you?

Saragimaru

むこうの方が上手だったようだな、悪魔閣下

Looks like you've been outsmarted, Your Demonicness.

Kuroji

呼び方をそう頻繁に変えられると
返事していいものか迷うだろ

If you keep changing your terms of address so often,
I'm not gonna know whether I should even respond or not.

Saragimaru

安心しろ、ここらで悪い奴は閣下しかいないから

Don't worry, Your Excellency. You're the only demon for miles around.

???

うは〜、生まれたばっかりの赤ん坊に非道いこと
する悪党、コレはボクと相性ばっちりだね!

Waha~h, so you were going to attack a newborn baby?
What a scoundrel. I bet you and I would get along great!

Kuroji

そりゃありがたいが・・・・
それより、後ろの花はなんなんだ?

Well, thanks for the compliment...
But more importantly, what's that flower behind you?

???

『ハルジオン』も知らないの〜?
バカじゃ〜ん

What, you don't know about the "Harujion"?
What a duu~uummy!

Kuroji

・・・・・

.....

Saragimaru

あれが『ハルジオン』なのか・・・初めて見た

So that's the "Harujion"...? First time I've seen it.

Kuroji

『ハルジオン』・・・・・聞いたことがある
无現里に一輪しかないとか

"Harujion"... yeah, I've heard about it.
Like how there's only one in all of Mugenri.

???

らしーぃね、今回はここに咲いたみたい

Apparently! And this year, it happened to bloom here.

Kuroji

高く売れそうだ

Bet it'd sell for a high price.

Saragimaru

そればっかだな、お前は

Is there anything else you even think about?

Kuroji

死者を蘇らせる力があるんだろ? アレには

That plant's got the power to resurrect the dead, doesn't it?

総体から産まれし個体
シオン

An Individual Born from the Aggregate
Shion

Shion

そーだよ、ボクはあの花から生まれたんだ

Bingo~! I was born from that flower.

Shion

ボクは生き返ったわけじゃないから
まだ花の力は残ってるはずだよ

But since I didn't exactly come back to life,
the flower should still have some juice left in it.

Saragimaru

さっきの奴らもこの花の力を使えばよかったのにな

Those two from before should've just used the flower for their plan, really.

Kuroji

刈るか

Shall we chop it down?

Saragimaru

そうくると思った、やるかぁ

Yep, saw that one coming. We gonna go for it...?

Shion

いは〜、キミ"達"はキモチいいほど悪党だね♪

Ehaha~h, you two really are scoundrels! You feel awesomely bad. ♪

Saragimaru

あれ、おかしい・・・・僕もカウントされてる・・・
こんなはずじゃ・・・

Huh? That's odd... I'm included in the count...
That's not right...

Kuroji

朱に交わって赤くなったな

One rotten apple spoils the barrel, eh?

Shion

あは〜、キミ達もさっきのヒトと同じで、
中々変わったニオイがするね〜

Aha~h. You both have some pretty unusual smells,
just like the person who was here before.

Saragimaru

何を言ってるんだ? この子は?

Uh, what is this kid talking about?

Shion

ミドリのキミは自己犠牲
誰かの下で働くことでその真価を発揮する

You there, the green one. You smell of self-sacrifice.
Your true value is shown by working under someone else.

Shion

悪くないねぇ、いいニオイだぁよ

Not bad at all. I like that kind of smell!

Saragimaru

う、ニオイを嗅がれたのか・・・

Ugh, they smelled me...?

Kuroji

私の知り合いにもニオイに敏感な奴がいたな
アイツと同じタイプか

One of my acquaintances is pretty sensitive to smell, too.
Guess this kid's the same type as them?

Shion

黒いほうのキミは、生きることも
死ぬこともやめたみたいだね

And you, in the black... it looks like you've
given up on both living and dying.

Shion

ゲテモノはエンガチョー、
遠慮しとこっと

Blech, I'm not touching any gross food like that.
Gonna have to pass.

Kuroji

他人からはよくそう言われる

Yes, I get that a lot.

Music stops

Saragimaru

何を言ってるんだか

Okay, what are we even talking about?

BGM: 縁から外れた名前

BGM: A Name Cast Off from the Edge

Shion

この花はボクにとって大切なもの
刈らせるわけにはいかないよ

This flower is very important to me.
There's no way I'll let you cut it down!

Kuroji

別に許可を必要としては、いない

I mean, it's not like we need your permission.

Saragimaru

そうだろうな

Figured as much.

Shion

君らのその性根、全部吸い取ってあげるよ!!

I'll absorb every last bit of those natures of yours!!

Shion DEFEATED
