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?

Tsubakura

ふぁ・・・寒い・・・
なんだってこんな日に・・・

*Yawn*... 's cold...
Why do we hafta go out on a day like this?

Yabusame

みてみてツバっ!
雪がおいしい!!

Look look, Tsuba!
The snow's really tasty!

Tsubakura

残念な事に俺は視覚じゃ味が分からないんでね

I'm sorry you had to find out this way, but I can't taste things with my eyes.

Yabusame

お弁当もあるよ!
おにぎりだけだけどね〜

There's even lunchboxes, too!
Although they're full of nothing but rice balls.

Tsubakura

そういえば結局今日は何も食べずに
追い出されたからなぁ〜ペコペコだ

Come to think of it, we got booted out without even
having breakfast today... I'm starvin'.

Yabusame

中の具にはアタリとハズレがあるよー!

Some of them even have a surprise filling inside!

Tsubakura

・・・・・遺書でも書き留めておくか

...Maybe we should get started writing our wills.

???

飛び食いする人間か・・・
どこの馬の骨かと思ったら・・・

A couple of humans having a midair meal...?
Who the heck are these spineless layabouts...?[a]

Yabusame

たくあんもあるよー

There's pickled radish in these ones, too~!

Sese Kitsugai ENTERS

???

なんだ、あの神社の奴等だったか・・・

Wait, aren't you the ones from that shrine?

Tsubakura

それって紅生姜って言うんだぜ?
カレーでも入ってるのか?

Pretty sure that's pickled ginger.
What's next, curry-filled ones?

???

少しは骨のあるやつかと思ってたけど・・・

Y'know, I thought you had more of a backbone than this...

Yabusame

へー、赤いやつはそう言うんだー

Ooh, so that's what the red stuff is called~.

???

どうやらとんだ期待ハズレだったようだ・・・
・・・・って、オイぃ!

But it looks like my expectations missed the mark.
....HEY! Hellooo?!

Tsubakura

まぁそういうことにしておこう
お前がそう言うんならな

Well, sure, let's call it that.
If you say so, at least.

自分探し中の骸
乞骸 セセ

A Corpse in Search of Themself
Sese Kitsugai

Sese

かまってよ〜
さびしぃ〜

Pay attention to meee!
I'm so lonely~

Yabusame

おっ、から揚げだった〜
えへへ〜、当ったり〜♪

Oh, this one's got fried chicken!
Eh heh heh~! I got a winner. ♪

Sese

あれ? もしかして本当に聞こえてない?
・・・・お〜ぃ?

Huh? Can you really not hear me?
...Helloooo?

Tsubakura

うーん、余り食べる気になれないが・・・
・・・・ところでそこのお前

Mmm, I don't really feel like eating that...
...Hey, by the way. You over there.

Sese

あ、聞こえてはいたのね・・・
な〜ぁに?

Oh, it looks like they finally heard me...
What's u~p?

Tsubakura

飲み物がないんだが・・・
お茶とか用意してないわけ?

We're kind of low on drinks, here...
You don't happen to have any tea, do you?

BGM: ムクロマンサー 〜 抜け殻の夢

BGM: Cadaveromancer ~ Dream of an Empty Husk

Sese

あるかボケェ!!

OF COURSE NOT!!

Sese Kitsugai DEFEATED

Sese

うぇ〜、お食事中の奴等に負けたぁ〜

Blegh~. I lost to a couple of mid-meal multitaskers...

Tsubakura

ん・・・・これは・・・
・・・・レーズンか・・・

Nnh... this one's got...
...raisins...?

Yabusame

あぁ〜、ハズレだね〜

Ahh~, looks like you drew the short straw on that one!

Tsubakura

悪くない、なかなかいいセンスだ

Not bad. In fact, it's pretty good.

Sese

やっぱり無視なのね

Yep, they're still ignoring me.

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

Yabusame

ふ〜、食後の運動は片腹痛いね!

Whew~. The idea of post-meal exercise is just side-splitting!

Tsubakura

あながち間違ってないから否定はしない

I mean, you're technically not wrong, so I'll let that particular mangled idiom slide.

Yabusame

あっ、すっごいよー!
すべすべ川がつるつるすべるよー!?

Wow, this is so cool!
The river is all smooth and slippery!

Tsubakura

よく素足で滑れるな・・・

I— wow. You're sliding on it in bare feet, huh...?

Yabusame

カンセーがホゾンされるよー!?

It retains the inertia betteeeerrrr!

Tsubakura

アレは風邪を引かないとはよく言うが
寒さも感じないのだろうか?

They say that morons can't catch colds,
but do they straight-up not feel cold, too?

???

ひひーん

Neighhh!

Tsugumi Umatachi ENTERS

Tsubakura

やる気が感じられない、もう一回

I'm not hearin' any motivation in that neigh. Try again.

???

うるさいわい!
さっきから霊を集めとるのはお前らか!?

Aw, shut it!
Are you the ones who've been scoopin' up all them spirits for a while now?!

Yabusame

あ、さっきユーレイ追っかけてた人だー

Ah, it's the person who was chasing the spirits a minute ago.

???

お前らさっきから仕事のじゃますんな!
こちとら師走なんじゃ!

You two've been gettin' in the way of my work!
I've been real busy this month, y'know![b]

Tsubakura

いろいろツッコミどころの多い奴だな
面倒くさい・・・

There's so much bizarre stuff to point out here, I don't even know where to begin.
What a pain...

茄子を綾なす騎手
馬立 ツグミ

Eggplant-Decorating Jockey
Tsugumi Umatachi

Tsugumi

メンドイのはお前さんらや、
興味本位でしょーもないことしおって!

You're the ones bein' a pain!
Goin' around an' sabotagin' people's work just for the fun of it!

Yabusame

こっちも仕事なんだけどね〜

But we're just doing our job, too.

Tsugumi

ほんなら縄張り争いっちゅーこっちゃ
覚悟しぃー!

Oh. Then I reckon we've got a territory dispute on our hands.
Prepare yer'seeelves!

Tsubakura

まぁこっちは二人、あっちは一人と一皿
丁度いいんじゃないか?

Well, we've got two people, and they've got one person and one side dish.
Works out nice and evenly, no?

Yabusame

どっちがナス食べる?

Which one of us is eating the eggplant?

BGM: ゲットレディー号 〜 to_run_around!

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

Tsugumi

どっちもボケナスじゃ!

You've both got eggplant fer' brains!

Tsugumi Umatachi DEFEATED

Yabusame

やっぱりツバと僕が組めばサイキョーね!

Woohoo! If Tsuba and I work together, we really are the strongest!

Tsubakura

お前は大して働いてないだろ?

You're not working that much, though?

Tsugumi

うぅ〜、今夜のおかずがボロボロや・・・

Uugh, tonight's side dish is ruined now...

Yabusame

おいしかったね♪

It was delicious~. ♪

Tsubakura

大きくても味は大して変わらないんだな

The taste doesn't change much, even if it's large.

Tsugumi

馬喰いドロボー!!

Horse-eatin' burglars!!

Tsubakura

・・・・それ牛だろ?

...Isn't it supposed to be a cow?[c]

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

Tsubakura

どうも霊を操ってる奴がいそうだな・・・

Seems like someone around here is manipulating the spirits...

Yabusame

おぉー! それじゃ、僕たちの仕事が減るね〜

Oh! That means less work for us!

Tsubakura

やっこさんもお前みたいに能天気だと
いいんだがね・・・

Sure would be nice if our little friend
were as carefree as you...

???

さっきから霊の集まりが悪いと思ったら・・・

Aha. I thought there hadn't been as many spirits gathering for a while now...

Tsubakura

おいでなすったか

You again, huh?

Fujiwara no Iyozane ENTERS

???

お前らの仕業か・・・?
霊なんか集めてどうするつもりだ?

So you two were to blame...?
What are you even planning to do with all those spirits you're hoarding?

Yabusame

え〜と、霊を集めて、元の場所に返してあげれば
ポカポカになるかな〜って

Umm, well, we were thinking maybe if we put all the ghosts
back where they came from, it'd make everything warm and fuzzy?

???

元の場所って・・・
外の世界にかい? そりゃ難儀な・・・

Where they came from...
You mean the outside world? You'll have a long road ahead of you with that...

Tsubakura

だろうな、ここの結界はコイツの能力でも
条件が厳しいからな

Yeah, sure would. Even with this airhead's ability,
the requirements on the barrier here are real strict.

???

? よく分からんが、それならさっさと諦めて
家でコタツにでも入ってな

...? Not sure I follow, but in that case, why not just give up
and go curl up in the kotatsu back home?

Yabusame

本当ならそうしたいけどね〜
・・・あなたはなんで霊を集めてるの?

I mean, I sure would like to...
...By the way, why are you collecting these spirits?

時代錯誤の野心家
藤原 伊代真

Anachronistic Ambitious Person
Fujiwara no Iyozane

Iyozane

そりゃ、最重要機密さ

'Fraid that's top secret.

Tsubakura

そんじゃ、いっちょ聞き出しますかな
ようやく詳しそうな奴に会えたことだし

A'ight, let's start with the questioning.
We've finally run into someone who seems to know something, after all.

BGM: 幽暗海峡ヨーソロー

BGM: In the Gloomy Straits, Steady as She Goes

Iyozane

手荒な奴だね〜
キライじゃないけど

How rough of you...
Not that I'm complaining.

Yabusame

ツバ〜、あの笛欲しい〜・・・

Tsubaaaa, I want that flute too...!

Tsubakura

じゃあ二回弾かなくちゃな

Guess we'll have to shoot them down twice, then.

Iyozane

そりゃ勘弁してほし〜ねぇ〜

I'd really appreciate if you didn't do that...

Fujiwara no Iyozane DEFEATED

Iyozane

2対1は流石に卑怯じゃないか?

Two against one is pretty cowardly, don't you think?

Tsubakura

よく言うだろ?
『勝てばよかろうなのだ』って

You know what they say, right?
"Victory is all that matters!"[d]

Yabusame

帰りに笛もらうから、
それまでに元気になっててね〜

We'll be taking that flute on the way back,
so rest well until then, okay~?

Iyozane

メチャクチャな奴らだな〜

You two are just unbelievable...

Tsubakura

さて、それはさておき
この先に何があるのか教えてもらおうか?

Well, leaving that aside.
Mind telling us what's waiting up ahead?

Iyozane

復活の儀式場さ、まぁもう不要だろうけどね

A ritual ground for someone's revival. Not that we really need it any more, though...

Yabusame

またギシキなのかー

A ritual aga~in?

Iyozane

本当は通すわけにはいかないんだが・・・
まぁさっきも二人通しちゃったしね・・・

Normally, there's no way I'd let you pass, but...
Well, I did already let those other two through...

Tsubakura

・・・・・先客がいるようだな

...Seems like we've already got company.

Yabusame

たのしみだね〜

Sounds like fun~!

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

Yabusame

ツバツバ〜、氷がいっぱいあるよ?

Tsuba, Tsuba~! This place is full of ice, see?

Tsubakura

カキ氷でもつくるか? シロップ探さないとな

You gonna make shaved ice with it? Guess we better find some syrup.

Yabusame

ブルーハワイあるよ♪

I've got some Blue Hawaii. ♪

Tsubakura

また超次元ポケットから出したな?
俺は墨をかけるからいらんぞ

Pulled that out of your hammerspace pocket again, did you?
I don't need any, though. I'll just put ink on mine.

???

訳のわからん話をしてるのは
どこの阿呆共かと思ったら・・・

I hear some idiots having an incomprehensible
conversation, and just who do I find...

Tsubakura

おーぅ?

Oh?

Adagumo no Yaorochi ENTERS

Yaorochi

闡裡の阿呆共か

...But the fools from Senri?

Sukune Katano ENTERS

Sukune

アホだぎゃにゃ〜

They're fools, nyah~!

Yabusame

あーっ! 蛇さんと埴輪ちゃん!

Ah! It's the snake and the little haniwa!

Tsubakura

なんだ、やっぱりお前らも来てたのか

What, so you two decided to come along after all?

Yaorochi

どっかの神主さん達は頼りないからな

Yes, since it seems that some head priests can't be relied upon.

Yabusame

あはは〜、もしかして誉められてるの? ツバ?

Ahaha~! Are they complimenting us? Tsuba?

Tsubakura

そういうことにしておこう

Let's call it that.

Sukune

けど、結局おみゃーさんらが行くんだったら
僕らは無駄足だっちゅーわけだわ

But if you'se twose are here after all,
I guess all our work was for nothin', huh?

Yaorochi

それもシャクだな

It's quite irritating, yes.

Tsubakura

そうかい、だったら手を取り合って一緒に
異変解決しましょう、ってか?

My, really? So do you want to join up with us all friendly-like
and resolve the incident together, then?

Yabusame

あっ! いいねー!!
みんなで行けばラクだし楽しいね♪

Oh! Yeah, yeah!!
It'll be way easier and more fun if the four of us could go together! ♪

Yaorochi

・・・・・

....

Sukune

・・・・

...

Tsubakura

・・・

...

Yabusame

・・・・・あれ?

...Huh?

Yaorochi

阿呆が

What a fool.

Sukune

バカだにゃ

Total dummy, nyah!

Tsubakura

(無視)こちとら遠路はるばるここまできたんでねぇ
とっとと帰ってくれないか?

(*ignores*) We've come quite the long way to get here too, you know.
Would you mind getting lost?

Yaorochi

俺をオウムにするつもりか?

Are you just parroting me?

Yabusame

コケェー!?

Buh-GAAAAWK!

Sukune

ニワトリだぎゃ!?

That's a chicken, y'know?!

Tsubakura

つまり帰る気はないと・・・

So I guess you're not willing to go back...

Yaorochi

もちろん協力する気もない

But of course. We won't cooperate with you, either.

Yabusame

もー!! 面倒くさいなー、もー!!

Rrgh! You guys are so annoying! Rrrrrrghhh!!

Sukune

こんどはウシだぎゃー!!

This time you're doin' a dog impersonation!

Tsubakura

わかったわかった、
これ以上この場に居たらIQが下がりそうだ

Got it, got it.
Also, my IQ will decrease if I stay in this place much longer.

Yaorochi

だな、致死量にならないうちに始めよう

Yes, quite. Let's get started before we lose a fatal amount.

Sukune

おっ、やるんじょね!

Ooh, then let's go!

Yabusame

やるんだねー!!

Yeah, let's go!

Tsubakura

随分と賑やかになりそうだ・・・

Seems like we're in for a pretty lively time...

BGM: ただ空五倍子に、ただ一筋に

BGM: Only in Beige, Only in Earnest

Yaorochi

手加減はせん、借りもあるしな

I shan't go easy on you. This is payback too, after all.

Sukune

んだにゃ、借りは返すぎゃー

Nyeah! Time for some back payment, gyah!

Tsubakura

延滞料でもたっぷり搾り取ってやるか

How 'bout I squeeze some late rent fees out of you?

Yabusame

取っちゃえー!

Squeeeeeze!

Adagumo no Yaorochi AND Sukune Katano DEFEATED

Yaorochi

一度ならず、二度までも・・・・

Not just once, but twice...?

Sukune

不甲斐ないにゃ〜...

How shamelessh, nya...

Tsubakura

あーぁ、やっぱり勝っちゃったよ
もうちょい手加減すればよかった

Ahh, great. We went an' won.
I knew I shoulda gone easier on you.

Yabusame

? 勝っちゃダメだったの?

Hm? Was us winning a bad thing?

Tsubakura

ここで負ければコイツらに任せて帰れたじゃん

If we'd lost here, we could've left the rest up to them and gone home.

Yaorochi

なら勝負する前に大人しく帰ればいいだろ・・・

Why not just behave yourself and leave before fighting, then...?

Tsubakura

逃げるみたいでなんかイヤじゃん?

Naw, then we'd practically be running away. Wouldn't feel right, y'know?

Sukune

じゃあ何がしたかったんじゃよ〜

What did'ja even want t' do, then~?

Tsubakura

さぁ・・・・? 俺が知るかよ

Who knows...? Not me, that's for sure.

Yabusame

さーて、先に進むよー!

Alright, let's keep going!

Sukune

僕らは何しにここに来たんにゃか・・・

Why did we even come here...?

Yaorochi

どうも我々は無駄骨が多いな・・・

It seems that "breaking pointless bones" is quite a common occurrence for us...

Tsubakura

骨が多い分、食べ難かったぜ

Yeah, you're just full of pointless bones. 'S why you're hard to eat.

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.

BGM: 夢に忘れた尊き蛍火

BGM: Sacred Fireflies, Forgotten in Dreams

Fujiwara no Iyozane ENTERS

Iyozane

うっ、追いつかれたか・・・

Ergh, they caught up to me...?

Yabusame

あ〜! 笛を届けに来てくれたのかな?

Oh~! Did you come to deliver my flute, by any chance?

Tsubakura

随分と親切なこった

How very gracious of them.

Iyozane

どうやら予定が狂ってるようだから、
少し時間を稼がせてもらう!

It looks like our plan's gone a little off-kilter,
so I'm gonna buy some time now!

Fujiwara no Iyozane DEFEATED

Tsubakura

なんか忙しそうだったな、あの笛吹き

That flute-player sure seemed busy.

Yabusame

みんないろいろあるんだね〜

Everyone's got their own problems~.

???

!? ちっ、こんな時に邪魔者か!

...?! Tch. Interlopers, at a time like this...?!

Tsubakura

また忙しそうな奴が出たな

Looks like we've got another busybody.

Taira no Fumikado ENTERS

???

今はそれどころじゃないってのにっ!!

This is REALLY not the time, you know!!

Yabusame

おーおー、すご−いニオイ

Woaaaah, that is SOME smell they've got!

Tsubakura

随分と切羽詰まってるみたいだな

They seem to be under a lot of pressure.

???

まさか・・・"アレ"も貴様等の仕業か!?

Don't tell me... that thing was your doing, too?!

Tsubakura

ほーらきた、濡れ衣だ、いつもそうだ

See? Now we're being framed. This always happens.

???

いや、違う、そんなわけなかった・・・
しかし、あんなものに邪魔されるなんて・・・

No, wait, it can't have been them...
Still, though, I can't believe something like that would mess things up...

Yabusame

アンナモノ? ドンナモノ?

Something like that? Something like what?

Tsubakura

なんだ、また俺達の出番無くして
異変解決したってのか?

What? Don't tell me the incident's resolved itself
without us doing anything again?

???

・・・まぁいい、まだ失敗と決まったわけじゃない
ようは"アレ"を利用すればいいんだしな

...Well, whatever. This still isn't a guaranteed failure.
All that matters is how we can make use of that thing.

Yabusame

なんか落ち着いたみたい

I think they calmed down?

Tsubakura

一人で勝手に忙しいやつだ

Must be real tiring, getting riled up an' calmed down all by themself.

???

さて、それでお前らは侵入者なのかな?

So, are you two the intruders, or what?

Tsubakura

さっきは邪魔者扱いだったけどな

You were calling us interlopers just a second ago, but yes.

Yabusame

異変を解決しにきましたー

We're here to resolve the incident~!

???

皇の復活の邪魔をしに来たのか
けど敵じゃない・・・お前ら神社の者だろ?

You're here to obstruct the emperor's resurrection?
But you're not enemies of mine... you're from the shrine, aren't you?

Tsubakura

やっぱりご存知なのね、まぁそういうこった

Oh, so you've heard of us. Yeah, basically.

Tsubakura

『異変解決にご協力お願い致します』
ってなわけで藪雨

"We'd appreciate your cooperation with resolving the incident."
Go for it, Yabusame.

Yabusame

うん、えーっと、それではおききします
まず『お名前とご職業は?』

Okay. Um, well, let's start with
"What's your name and occupation?"

新帝の盃
平 文門

The Vessel for the New Emperor
Taira no Fumikado

Fumikado

『平 文門(たいらのふみかど)』
昔は霊媒師を、今はただの『器』ってとこだ

My name is Taira no Fumikado.
I used to be a spirit medium, but I'm currently just a "vessel".

Tsubakura

『器』・・・ねぇ

A "vessel"... huh.

Yabusame

えー、それでは、
『どうして、異変をおこしたんですか?』

Uhh, okay, moving on.
"Why did you cause this incident?"

Fumikado

霊が蔓延っているのは私の所為じゃないぞ?

It's not my fault that there's spirits wandering all over, you know?

Tsubakura

あぁー、やっぱりそうだったか・・・
それじゃあ何で霊魂を集めてる?

Ahh, I knew it. Oh well...
Well, why are you collecting them?

Fumikado

霊魂の力を利用して、我が血に眠る『皇』を
現世に蘇らせるってとこかな

By using the power of those souls, the "Emperor" that sleeps in my blood
will be revived in the world of the living.

Tsubakura

へぇ〜、平氏で皇ってことは『平親皇』とかかな?
随分と立派で大物だこと

Hm~m. Considering you're from the Taira clan, I assume this emperor is the New Emperor of Taira?
Quite the spectacular big-shot, he is.

Fumikado

そう思わん奴等もいるんだな、困ったことに

Well, not everyone thinks of him that way. Unfortunately.

Yabusame

んーっと、では『在住の・・・』

Mmmm-kay, so next is "where is your current place of..."

Tsubakura

いや、もういい 茶番に付き合ってくれる
イイ奴だってことは良く分かった

No, that's enough. The fact that they're good-natured enough
to play along with that farce is quite evident by now.

Fumikado

皇は器量を問われるからな、『器』なだけに

The emperor must have a vast and spacious heart! As a "vessel" for royalty, after all.

Tsubakura

(無視)要するに、平親皇をお前に憑依させる
・・・ってことか?

(*ignores*) So, basically, you're gonna get the New Emperor to possess you...
...More or less?

Fumikado

正確には、霊魂の集合体で親皇の魂を形作り
私の血に眠る親皇を呼び起こし、復活させるのだ

Specifically, we will use a conglomerate of spirits to form the shape of the New Emperor's soul,
which will then awaken the Emperor sleeping within my blood, and revive him.

Yabusame

よく分かんないけど手が込んでますねー

I don't really follow, but it sure sounds complicated!

Tsubakura

わざわざそんな面倒な事して、何をするつもりだ?
ねぶた祭りでもすんのか? わっしょいわっしょい

What d'you intend to accomplish by doin' something so bothersome?
You gonna hold a Nebuta festival or somethin'? Wasshoi, wasshoi~.

Fumikado

親皇と共に"都"を落とそっかなってね

I'm thinkin' maybe I'll go and destroy the capital city with the New Emperor's help.

Tsubakura

わぁーお

Woaaaah.

Yabusame

わーお! ・・・・み、や、こ?

Woaaaah! ...What's a cap-ittle?

Fumikado

君らだってウンザリしてるだろ?
最近のお偉いさんのやり方には

You two must be fed up with things too, right?
With the way all the bigwigs are doing things lately...

Tsubakura

・・・見たことも聞いたこともないからなぁ、なんとも

...Uh, I've never seen or heard of this place, so, y'know, not really.

Yabusame

ウチの神社が一番偉いんじゃなかったんだ

I guess our shrine wasn't the biggest wig in town after all.

Fumikado

ここには私の味方をしに来たんじゃなく、
異変解決とかいう大層な仕事のためだったな

So you're here for that oh-so-important "incident resolution"
job of yours, and not to ally with me or anything.

Yabusame

けどみんな友達だよ〜、中立、中立〜

We're friends with everyone, though! Neutrality, neutrality~.

Tsubakura

それってみんな敵ってことだけどな

"Enemies with everyone" would be more accurate, but yeah.

Fumikado

お前らが"都"と手を組むと、ひじょ〜うに厄介だ
今の内に各個撃破しておくか

It would be extree~emely dangerous for you two to join forces with the capital.
Perhaps I should pick you off here and now?

Tsubakura

結局、相手を黙らせるのに最も有効的な手段は
暴力だからな、哀しいかの〜

Violence is the most effective method for shutting your
opponent up, after all. What a shame, what a shame~.

Yabusame

どーやら話の展開に
滑車がかかってきたみたいだね!

Looks like this conversation has
really started to spin its wheels!

Tsubakura

確かにコロコロすれば速そうだからなー、
間違いとは言わん

I suppose things do go faster if the wheels are spinning,
so I'd say you're more or less correct this time.

Fumikado

敵数はこちらの二倍か・・・
ハンデにしちゃ、ちょっとヌルイかな?

Twice as many on the enemy side compared to mine...
That's pretty light for a handicap, if you ask me?

Yabusame

どうしようツバ! すっごく甘く見られてるよ!?

Tsuba, what do we do?! They're looking at us like this'll be easier than taking candy from a baby!

Tsubakura

こちとら糖分控えめの低カロリーだぜぃ

We'll have you know that we're low on sugar and calories.

BGM: ムーンチャイルド 〜 Homunculus Dream

BGM: Moon Child ~ Homunculus Dream

Fumikado

そんじゃ、そのお手並みを拝見させてもらうかな

All right. Let's see what the two of you are made of, hm?

Tsubakura

おっと藪雨、シメのアレ

Oh, Yabusame, quick. The closing line.

Yabusame

あ! うん、えっとえっと・・・そーれでは
『異変解決に協力してくれますか?』

Ah! Right, um, err... sooo with all that said,
"will you cooperate with resolving the incident?"

Fumikado

答えはノー、親皇の為に磨き上げたこの体
御賞味あれ、ってな!!

My answer is NO! Now, behold this body that I've
honed to perfection for the New Emperor's sake!!

Taira no Fumikado DEFEATED

Fumikado

うーん、二対一じゃなければなぁ・・・

Nnnnh, if only it hadn't been two on one...

Tsubakura

前言撤回するわりには、頑張ったほうだろう

Despite how quick they retracted that statement, they did put up a good fight.

Yabusame

これで異変も解決ってことだね!

Looks like we can call this incident officially resolved!

Tsubakura

お前は何も聞いてなかったんだな

You weren't listening to a word they said, were you.

Fumikado

ハハッ、まぁお前らも見てくるがいいさ
そして思う存分楽しませてやれ、"アレ"を

Hah hah! Well, you two run along and see for yourselves.
Then you can have all the fun you like with that thing.

Yabusame

アレレー?

That thing-ing-i~ng?

Tsubakura

最初っから気になってたが、なんかあったのか?

I've been wondering this since we started talking, but did something bad happen?

Fumikado

霊魂は十分に集まっていた・・・
いや、集まりすぎていた

We collected more than enough souls...
"More than enough" being the operative word.

Fumikado

どこで間違ったんだか・・・・・いや
私が単に浅学だっただけか・・・

Where did we go wrong...?
No, perhaps I just didn't have enough knowledge to begin with...

Tsubakura

・・・いやな予感ビンビン

...Got a reeeal bad feeling 'bout this one.

Fumikado

過ぎたるは猶及ばざるが如し、ってやつだ
ありゃ生命でも死霊でもないね

One drop too many, and the whole cup runneth over!
That thing's not alive or dead at this point.

Yabusame

なんか面白くなってきたねー♪
異変も解決して身も軽くなったし♪

This is starting to sound interesting!
I feel way breezier with the incident resolved, too. ♪

Tsubakura

俺は気が重いぜ・・・

I just feel weighed-down...

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

Tsubakura

さて、いかにもな場所だな

Welp, this sure seems like the place.

Yabusame

誰かいるの〜?

Is anybody the~re?

Tsubakura

・・・・・・・・・・よしっ!
返事も無いことだし、帰るか

..........Alright!
Nobody answered. Let's just go home.

???

ん〜・・・・目の前で寝てたのに無視しないでよ〜

Nnh.... Don't ignore me. I was sleeping in front of you~.

Tsubakura

白々しいものは無視する習性なんでね

I have a tendency to ignore the blindingly obvious.

Yabusame

う〜ん、イイニオイ〜

Hm~mm, what a nice smell~!

Shion ENTERS

???

ふぁ〜あ・・・・・寝込みを襲わないなんて
面白いヒトだね、キミ達は

Yaaaaaawn... You're an interesting couple of humans,
not attacking me in my sleep.

Tsubakura

珍しい動物を発見したみたいに言わんでくれ

Don't talk about me like I'm some new animal you just discovered.

???

あれれ〜? おかしいね
黒いキミはボクと同じニオイがする

Huh? That's weird.
You there, in the black... you smell just like me.

Tsubakura

いきなり体臭の話題とはな、デリカシーのない奴だ

What's with the sudden body odor discussion? Quite the tactless one, you are.

Yabusame

ツバはすっごくイイニオイだよー

Tsuba smells really good!

Tsubakura

デリカシーのない奴"ら"だった...

Correction. Quite the tactless pair you are...

???

灰色のキミは・・・・
そもそもニオイなんか無いみたいだね

And you, in the grey...
You don't have any smell to begin with, it seems.

Yabusame

無味無臭よ〜♪

I'm tasteless and odorless~. ♪

Tsubakura

味見はまだのようだがな

Not like anybody's ever tasted you to make sure, though.

???

あはー、すごいね〜、君たちといると
心地良いニオイに満たされていくよ・・・

Aha~, this is wonderfu~l. With you two here,
the whole place is filled with a pleasant smell...

Tsubakura

ニオイの話はもう勘弁してくれ

Can we please give the smell chat a rest.

Yabusame

っで、きーみーは、誰なの?

By the way, who~oo aa~re yo~ou?

???

誰でもないよ、いまのところは

I'm not anybody. For now, at least.

Tsubakura

どっかの病人が言ってそうな台詞だ

Sounds like a line from everyone's favorite sicko, if y'ask me.

Yabusame

しっかしおっきな花だね〜、かふーん

That sure is a huge flower, though~. Ker-pollennnn!

Tsubakura

・・・もしかしてアレが『ハルジオン』か? 
无現里に一輪しかないっていう

...Could this be the "Harujion"?
It's said that only one of them exists in Mugenri.

???

そーだよー、僕はこれから産まれたんだ

That's ri~ight! I was born from this flower.

Tsubakura

外のものとはえらく形が違うな
ついでに色と大きさも

'S got a way different shape compared to the ones outside.
Not to mention the color and size.

???

この花については少しだけちょっと色々詳しく
なんでも知ってるよ〜

If you wanna know about this flower, I might happen to know maybe just a little
teensy-weensy bit of all sorts of super-detailed info about any and every aspect~.

Tsubakura

なんだか良く分からないけど知ってるってことだな

Didn't quite catch all of that, but okay, you know about the thing.

Yabusame

ハルジオン、ってことはシオンちゃんだねー

If you were born from this Harujion, then from now on your name is Shion!

Tsubakura

名前が決まったな、勝手に

Looks like that's your name now. Not that we asked you.

総体から産まれし個体
シオン

An Individual Born from the Aggregate
Shion

Shion

まぁ別にそれでいいよ、
名前ってのは先人が付けるもんだからね

Well, I don't really mind.
Names are given by one's predecessors, after all.

Yabusame

ところでハルジオンってなにーーっ?

By the way, what iiii~is the Harujion?

Tsubakura

聞いた話じゃ『死者を蘇らせる力』を持つらしいが

From what I've heard, it's got "the power to revive the dead".

Shion

へー、そうなんだ

Huh~, is that so?

Tsubakura

当人がああ言ってるから、マユツバだがな

With the flower-child giving a response like that, though, it's probably bunk.

Yabusame

シオンちゃんはここで何をやってるの?

So what are you doing around here, lil' Shion?

Shion

別に・・・・・ただ退屈だったから遊んでただけ
さっきのヒトは逃げちゃったけど

Eh, not much... I was bored, so I've just been playing around.
The person who was here a while ago ran away real quick, though.

Tsubakura

さっきの奴が集めてた霊魂がハルジオンを
媒介にして、一つの個体が誕生したってとこか?

So all the souls gathered by that Taira what's-their-name
produced a single individual, using the Harujion as a medium?

Yabusame

流石ツバ、全然なにを言ってるのか分からない!

That's the Tsuba I know! I don't understand a single thing you just said!

Shion

ふ〜ん、なるほどねぇ
どーりで頭の中でいろんな"声"が聞こえるわけだ

H~mm, I see.
I guess that explains why I can hear so many "voices" in my head.

Tsubakura

馬鹿げた量の自我やら意思やらを持ってるんだな

Must have a stupid amount of minds and egos rattlin' around in there.

Shion

キミも似たようなもんなんじゃないのかな〜?

Isn't it a similar sort of thing with you, too~?

Tsubakura

残念ながら俺はお前みたいに
なんか色々飛び出てないっつーの

Sorry, but unlike you, I don't have a bunch of
weird stuff poppin' outta me.

Yabusame

たまに黒いのが飛び出てるけどねー

Sometimes black stuff comes flying out, though~.

Shion

けどボクと違ってキミは楽しそう・・・

You seem to be enjoying yourself, though... unlike me.

Tsubakura

最近なにかとラクでねぇ〜

Yeah, things've been more or less enjoyable lately~.

Yabusame

昔に比べればね

Compared to the old days, yep!

Shion

羨ましぃ〜な〜、恨めしぃ〜な〜
あはー、ぶち壊したい

That suuure makes me jealous~. Suuuure makes me mad~.
Hahaa~, I wanna smash you into a billion pieces.

Tsubakura

おっと、流れが変わったな・・・

Woah, okay, this sure escalated quickly....

Shion

キミたちも、遊んでくれるの?

You'll play with me too, won't you?

Yabusame

遊ぶよー!

Let's play~!

Tsubakura

そんじゃお前ら二人で勝手に遊んでてくれ
俺は帰る

Okay then, you two go on and play with each other.
I'm going home.

Shion

黒い方がいないんじゃ意味ないよー

Playing with you is the whole point! It'll be meaningless otherwise.

Yabusame

意味無いねー

Meeeeaningless!

Tsubakura

藪雨、いつだってお前は俺の敵だったよな

Ah, Yabusame. You always have been my worst enemy, haven't you.

Yabusame

てへへっ♪

Teehee♪

Shion

キミも輪廻の頚木から解き放ってあげるよ

Allow me to release you, too, from the yoke of reincarnation.

Tsubakura

ようはお前に吸収されるってことか・・・

Which basically means getting absorbed by you, right...?

Tsubakura

吸収する前には消化をする
・・・・ってのが世の常だが?

Digesting food properly before absorbing it...
...is how the world's s'posed to work, you know?

BGM: 縁から外れた名前

BGM: A Name Cast Off from the Edge

Shion

それじゃあお望み通り、まずは消化してあげる♪

Well, since you asked for it, I'll digest you first. ♪

Yabusame

ツバ〜、
ちょっと本気でいったほうがいいんじゃない?

Tsuba~.
I think going a little bit all-out would be a good idea here?

Tsubakura

お前は本気出さなくていいからな

You don't have to go all-out, though.

Shion

よどみに浮かぶ水泡の一つごときが
このボクを満足させられるかな?

Now, can a single bubble floating in stagnant water
such as yourself really satisfy me?

Shion DEFEATED

If player has continued

Bad Ending

If player has not continued and defeated Shion

Good Ending A

If player has not continued and lost all souls while fighting Shion

Good Ending B
