オウマガノミコ / 逢魔巫女 / Disastrous Twilight Shrine Maiden

Woo, this song has beautiful lyrics. :D

Notes:
“Tasogare” 黄昏 (twilight) comes from 誰そ彼 “tasogare” – “Who are you?”
“Oumaga” 逢ウ魔ガ (traditionally spelled aumaga) comes from 逢う魔が時=逢魔時 “oumagatoki” – “The time one encounters evil/magic/disasters” or “twilight”
I’m using plural for a genderless pronoun (which is common practice)
I was going to go with Calamitous Twilight Shrine Maiden, but well, that doesn’t flow very well.

My interpretation is that most of the song is narrated by devils and spirits. ^_^ Other than the first, which is by Reimu. But well, that’s only one way to look at it.

Notes:
Fractal has brought to my attention that 六報 means “retribution” in Chinese, and thus “六つの報せ” would mean the same thing. Thus, an alternative reading for the first line is “Retribution comes to disturb my peace,”

六つの報せが平穏を侵す
そこに立つは誰そ彼や 視えぬ
ふいに声を掛けるか 否か
神域からの迷いビトなのか

Now six reports have come in to disturb my peace,
But who is that standing there in the distance? I cannot see
Should I call out to them? No, perhaps not.
I wonder, did they wander in from the sacred grounds?

逢魔時 繋ぐ
伸ばした手を掴む
手繰り寄せた 小さな
その手はもう 見えない

The time of great calamities is come,
Now we’ll link our arms together, grasping tightly
Even though your small hand I’ve taken
I can no longer see

端境 隔て
蠢く気配 辿る
やがて常世 蔭りて
茜は蒼へと成る

Separate the bordering boundary
And reach towards that writhing presence
Now finally casting shadows upon the eternal world
Red madder fades into blue

酉の声が幾度も震え
木霊と成して魔と逢う時よ
長く美しい髪な程
其れは麗しい血を求めて

The voice of the west shakes again and again
In the hour the spirits come out to see
She with such long and lovely hair
That seeks for beautiful blood

微笑む艶の 紅さと似た月は
瞳反らす事すら
出来ぬ程に魅入られ

The moon like her glossy crimson smile,
Though you may avert your eyes
You will still be unable to resist

端境 隔て
蠢く気配 騒ぐ
やがて常夜 深まり
蒼は闇へ堕ち行く

Separate the bordering boundary
Where that writhing presence clamors
Now the eternal night deepens
And blue descends into darkness

逢魔時 繋ぐ
伸ばした手を掴む
手繰り寄せた 小さな
その手はもう 見えない

The time of great calamities is come,
Now we’ll link our arms together, grasping tightly
Even though your small hand I’ve taken
I can no longer see

黄昏色に 染まり流れる雲は
一期一会 現世
ささめく声 聴いてよ

Clouds flowing, stained in the twilight,
Are like this apparent world, where no one time will come again
So listen to the rusting voices, listen.

  2. Hi kafka-fuura
    After I’ve search about the lyric,
    六つの報 , In chinese,六報, it should be mean : retribution,which is the punishment for what you have done in your life…
    So… the sentence should be
    Now ‘six retribution’ have come in to disturb my peace

    PS:六報 is a term in Buddhism,I don’t know the exact spelling,but I think retribution is better
