浮遊黒猫と楽団装置 // Fuyuu Kuroneko to Gakudan Souchi

創傷クロスライン

Sponsored by: SH

Some parts of this translation ended up being an explanation of what’s happening between the lines (at least as far as I interpret it) rather than a translation of those lines. There are several parts that are rather confusing and feel like they should go along with a video to have cues for what the lines are referring to. I did like the shooting stars being the lights in your eyes you get as you’re blacking out or recovering from a black out.

『衝動の儘に、深い考えもしない儘に
 家を飛び出したミリリは、
 激しい疲労と空腹に襲われながら
 それでも足を前へ前へと動かし続けていた。
 雨にうたれ、磨り減っていく心に、
 それでも目的だけは見失わないように。
 薄汚れた格好の少女に、
 声をかける者はいない』

shoudou no mama ni, fukai kan’gae mo shinai mama ni
ie wo tobidashita miriri wa,
hageshii hirou to kuufuku ni osowarenagara
soredemo ashi wo mae e mae e to ugokashi tsudzuketeita.
ame ni utare, surihetteiku kokoro ni,
soredemo mokuteki dake wa miushinawanai you ni.
usuyogoreta kakkou no shoujo ni,
koe wo kakeru mono wa inai


Miriri, who left her home with no plan,
acting on little more than an impulse,
was now overcome with hunger and exhaustion;
still, she made herself travel onward.
As the rain fell upon her and wore her heart thin,
she focused on only her goal, as to not lose sight of it.
As she dragged herself along in her ragged state,
there was no one who called out to her.

「ふふっ、あたし、バカみたいだーーーー」

fufu, atashi, baka mitai da—-

‘Haha… I’m such an idiot…’

緩やかな明滅にセカイは廻って
少女の視界はいつか ブラックアウトを繰り返した

yuruyaka na meimetsu ni sekai wa mawatte
shoujo no shikai wa itsuka blackout wo kurikaeshita

The world spun, its light slowly fading in and out
Soon, Miriri was experiencing blackouts one after the other

朽廃ディテールは嘘 絡む脚笑って笑って
不格好なダンスに黒猫が欠伸する

kyuuhai detail wa uso karamu ashi waratte waratte
fukakkou na dance ni kuroneko ga akubi suru

Decay of detail led to hallucinations and Miriri saw a black cat yawning
In audience to her pathetic dance as she stumbled over herself

虚構の羽はいらない それは物語を生まない
不明確な少女の 軌道は儚くも空を蹴った

kyokou no hane wa iranai sore wa monogatari wo umanai
fumeikaku na shoujo no kidou wa hakanaku mo sora wo ketta

I don’t need fictitious wings — they will not lead me into my story…
In a daze, her path left the ground as she fell, feet flung into the air

意識の葬列に終止符が穿たれて
嗚呼、倒れる手折られる 刹那救い上げた腕は
幻想か現か不明瞭でーーーー

ishiki no souretsu ni shuushifu ga ugatarete
aa, taoreru teorareru setsuna sukuiageta ude wa
gen’sou ka utsutsuka fumeiryou de —-

The funeral march of her consciousness was met with a sudden end
She hardly realized she was falling, so she was not sure whether
The arm that reach for hers was real or just fantasy —

『倒れかけた少女を支えたのは、黒衣を纏った放浪者。
 無言で手渡されたパンに、少女は飛びつく』

taorekaketa shoujo wo sasaeta no wa, kokui wo matotta hourousha.
mugon’ de tewasareta pan’ ni, shoujo wa tobitsuku


The one who had caught Miriri was a vagrant, cloaked in a dark robe.
Wordlessly he held out a loaf of bread, and she leapt upon it.

「あ、ありがと。貴方は……?」

“a, arigato. anata wa……?

‘T-Thank you. But who are you?’

ぼやけていたセカイが息を吹き返し
箒星は流れてく 言い尽くせない願い乗せて

boyaketeita sekai ga iki wo fukikaeshi
houkiboshi wa nagareteku iitsukusenai negai nosete

As her blurred world had life breathed into it again,
Stars shot across her vision, burdened with countless wishes

猫の楽団は空想 置き場所を探して探して
蓄積した者に 無意識に依存した

neko no gakudan’ wa kuusou okibasho wo sagashite sagashite
chikuseki shita mono ni muishiki ni izon’ shita

Miriri’s orchestra of cats was a fantasy, but like other things we collect over time
In the time it takes us to find a place for them, we develop a dependence on them

感情のない喝采 いつか物語を壊す
囃し立てる 散々耳元で鳴いていた言葉
それは終わりへ向けられた その誘うような声音
足を止めて止められて 正気を取り戻す少女
音はもう掻き消えていたーーーー

kan’jou no nai kassai itsuka monogatari wo kowasu
hayashitateru san’zan’ mimimoto de naiteita kotoba
sore wa owari e mukerareta sono sasou you na kowane
ashi wo tomete tomerarete shouki wo torimodosu shoujo
oto wa mou kakikieteita—-

An emotionless applause will one day destroy my story, she thought
Again and again their mewing voices whispered in her ear
As if to lure her into accepting an end that lay ahead
Only when Miriri was forced to stop did she regain her senses
But by then, all the voices had vanished—

「あ、あたしの顔に何かついてますか?」

‘a, atashi no kao ni nanika tsuitemasu ka?’

“I-Is there something on my face?”

『汚れているのだろうか、
 と不安に襲われた少女が口元をゴシゴシと擦っていると彼は微笑み、
 自分の探している女の子のことを思い出したのだと優しく語る。
 年の頃も同じで、思わず手を差し伸べてしまったのだと。
 多くは語らなかったけれど、
 人として誤った道を選んでしまったらしいその子を止めようと
 旅をしていることはわかった』

yogoreteiru no darou ka
to fuan’ ni osowareta shoujo ga kuchimoto wo goshi goshi to kosutteiru to kare wa hohoemi,
jibun’ no sagashiteiru on’na no ko no koto wo omoidashita no da to yasashiku kataru.
toshi no koro mo onaji de, omowazu te wo sashinobeteshimatta no da to.
ooku wa kataranakatta keredo,
hito to shite ayamatta michi wo eran’deshimattarashii sono ko wo tomeyou to
tabi wo shiteiru koto wa wakatta


I wonder if I have dirt on my face, she thought,
and rubbed her face with her sleeve, but the man just looked on with a smile.
When I saw you, I was reminded of the girl I am looking for, he said.
You are about the same age, and so without thinking, I reached out to you.
The man did not talk much,
but Miriri learned he was on a journey to stop a certain girl
who had decided to abandon a path befitting of humanity.

鮮やかな感情に呼吸を整えて

azayaka na kan’jou ni kokyuu wo totonoete

With the brilliant emotions before her, she caught her breath

虚構の羽はいらない それは物語を生まない
羽はなくとも 少女の足取りはその意思を取り戻した

kyokou no hane wa iranai sore wa monogatari wo umanai
hane wa nakutomo shoujo no ashitori wa sono ishi wo torimodoshita

I don’t need fictitious wings — they will not lead me into my story…
Even without wings, Miriri had regained a sense of determination in her step

飛ぶようにだなんて言えないけれど確かに
嗚呼、噛み締めて踏みしめて 着実にその地を蹴る
少女のいるべき方角へーーーー

tobu you ni da nan’te ienai keredo tashika ni
aa, kamishimete fumishimete chakujitsu ni sono chi wo keru
shoujo no irubeki hougaku e—-

Though far from the flight those fictitious wings promised
As Miriri bit down and put one foot in front of the other again
She was again off to where she needed to go—

「キミの旅の終着点はどこ?決して道を間違ってはいけない。
 戻れなくなるから」

kimi no tabi no shuuchakuten’ wa doko? kesshite michi wo machigatte wa ikenai.
modorenakunaru kara


Where are you headed? You must not lose your way,
 or else you may never find your way back.

『ぶっきらぼうに、けれど誠実に語る彼に少女は頷き、再び歩き始める。
 二人の目指す場所が同一であることには、最後まで気付かないままに』

bukkirabou ni, keredo seijitsu ni kataru kare ni shoujo wa unazuki, futatabi arukihajimeru.
futari no mezasu basho ga douitsu de aru koto ni wa, saigo made kidzukanai mama ni


The man was blunt, but he there was conviction behind his words,
 and Miriri nodded as they began walking again.
Little did they know that their destinations were one and the same.

「もうすぐ行くから……だから。生きてーーーー待ってて」

mou sugu iku kara…… dakara. ikite —- mattete

“I’ll be there soon, so please wait a little longer… Please stay alive.”

Event: C82

『五年間の記憶をなくしてしまったカナリアは、
 その幼さも五年前戻っていて……。
 そのころはシグとも出会っていない、記憶の巻き戻し現象。
 もちろん淡い恋心もはじめから
 存在しなかったかのようにリセットされていて』

gonen’kan’ no kioku wo nakushiteshimatta canaria wa,
sono osanasa mo gonen’mae modotteite…….
sono koro wa sig to mo deatteinai, kioku no makimodoshi gen’shou.
mochiron’ awai koigokoro mo hajimekara
son’zai shinakatta ka no you ni reset sareteite


Canaria, having lost her memories of the past five years,
Returned to the mental state of a girl five years younger…
With her memories rewound to a time before she had even met Sig,
Her love for him was gone in a complete reset,
As if it had never existed at all.

「ねぇ、何か悲しいことがあったの?お兄ちゃん」

nee, nanika kanashii koto ga atta no? oniichan’

‘Did something happen? Why do you look so sad, big brother?’

『戸惑うばかりの少年を無邪気に兄扱いして笑うその姿は、
 紛れもないカナリアなのに』

tomadou bakari no shounen’ wo mujaki ni ani atsukai shite warau sono sugata wa,
magire mo nai canaria na no ni


Sig was shocked by the way she approached him with an innocent smile as if he were her brother,
Even more so because he could not deny she really was Canaria

あどけない少女は 屈託なく笑って
愛しく思っても 上手く甘く抱きしめられない

adokenai shoujo wa kuttakunaku waratte
itoshiku omottemo umaku amaku dakishimerarenai

Sig watched as Canaria laughed free of worry or care
Though he still loved her, he could not bring himself to embrace her

隠すように零した溜息に
彼女は悲しそうにして
「キミのせいじゃない」
かける声も ただ虚しく響いた

kakusu you ni koboshita tameiki ni
kanojo wa kanashisou ni shite
“kimi no sei ja nai”
kakeru koe mo tada munashiku hibiita

Though Sig tried to hide his feelings
He would catch her looking worriedly at him
“It’s not your fault,” he’d say,
But he knew those words were empty

覚えているかな?
背中合わせで気持ちの答え合わせをしたね
忘れてるかな 一方的な感情のリセットか
いつだってキミはズルいよーーーー

oboeteiru ka na?
senaka awase de kimochi no kotaeawase wo shita ne
wasureteru kana ippouteki na kan’jou no reset ka
itsudatte kimi wa zurui yo—-

Do you remember when
We confirmed our feelings for each other, as we stood back to back?
Have you forgotten? Or is this some kind of one-sided emotional reset?
You’re always like this, it’s not fair…

離れずいるのに 置いていかれたみたいで
戸惑いは晴れない 最低到底受け入れられない

hanarezu iru no ni oiteikareta mitai de
tomadoi wa harenai saiteitoutei ukeirerarenai

Though Canaria was always with him, it felt as if he had been left behind
His mess of feelings would never untangle, he could not accept this reality

共有してきたもの何もかも ぽっかりと失われてた
でも時々見せる仕草やクセは 間違いなくキミでさ

kyouyuu shitekita mono nani mo ka mo pokkari to ushinawareteta
demo tokidoki miseru shigusa ya kuse wa machigainaku kimi de sa

Everything they had shared together was lost, leaving only a void inside of him
Even so, every now and then Canaria would show signs she had not changed as a person

二人の立場がもしも逆なら
キミなら ねぇ、どうしているだろう?
脳裏に浮かぶキミは笑ってごまかしてばっかりだ
いつだってそれじゃん ズルいよーーーー

futari no tachiba ga moshimo gyaku nara
kimi nara nee, doushiteiru darou?
nouri ni ukabu kimi wa waratte gomakashite bakkari da
itsu datte sore jan’ zurui yo—-

What if our roles were reversed?
What would you have done in my place?
I imagine you’d smile, brushing off your pain
You’re always like this, it’s not fair…

肝心なとこで弱気だ いい加減怒られそうだな
リセットされたならまたやり直したらいい
きっとそう言うんだろう?

kan’jin’ na toko de yowaki da ii kagen’ okoraresou da na
reset sareta nara mata yarinaoshitara ii
kitto sou iun’ darou?

You’re always weak when it comes to these things — and I’ve had it.
“If we’ve been reset, all we have to do is start over.”
I bet that’s what you’d say.

覚えているかな?
背中合わせで気持ちの答え合わせをした日
キミは後出しばかりで僕を ただ待って確かめて
いつだってキミはズルかった ーーーーそうだろう?

oboeteiru ka na?
senakaawase de kimochi no kotaeawase wo shita hi
kimi wa atodashi bakari de boku wo tada matte tashikamete
itsudatte kimi wa zurukatta —- sou darou?

Do you remember when
We confirmed our feelings for each other, as we stood back to back?
You always waited for me before you made your own move
You were always like that, it’s not fair, is it?

『カナリアに起きた不思議な現象は記憶のことだけではなかった。
 いつまでも眠気がこないといい、
 その日から一切の睡眠を取らなくなっていて……。
 たとえ記憶を失っても、彼女は彼女。
 思い出また作っていけばいい、と少年は自らに言い聞かせる。
 最初は兄でもいい。それでも近くにいられるなら。
 そしてーーーいつかはまた、恋人同士のようになれたなら……』

canaria ni okita fushigi na gen’shou wa kioku no koto dake de wa nakatta.
itsumade mo nemuke ga konai to ii,
sono hi kara issai no suimin’ wo toranakunatteite…….
tatoekioku wo ushinattemo, kanojo wa kanojo.
omoide mata tsukutteikebaii, to shounen’ wa mizukara ni iikikaseru.
saisho wa ani demo ii. soredemo chikaku ni irareru nara.
soshite — itsuka wa mata, koibito doushi no you ni nareta nara……


Canaria’s strange memory loss was not the only change that came over her.
Saying she didn’t feel sleepy,
Canaria had not slept once since that fateful day…
Though she had lost her memories, Canaria was still the same person.
Sig kept telling himself that all they needed was to make new memories.
Even if he had to play the role of her brother in the beginning, as long as he could be close to her…
Then one day, perhaps they could become lovers again…

「もう、また何か考え事?眠れるまで……遊んでほしいな?」

“mou, mata nani ka kan’gaegoto? nemureru made…… ason’de hoshii na?”

“What are you doing, lost in thought again? I wish you’d play with me… at least until you fall asleep.”

眠り姫と夢の空想儀 // Nemurihime to Yume no Kuusougi

創傷クロスライン

Sponsored by: SH

Sorry for the long pause between this post and the previous one. I’m getting there.

Notes:
I used ‘kaleidoscope (fantasia)’ to explain the system of fantasy (in respect to the dreams) ruled by rules unknown to the speaker, which is the more literal version of what the term used by the song means.

遠く離れた別の場所。
5年もの長さに渡って意識不明の”ミリリ”という少女がいた。
眠り姫と呼ばれ、病名もわからず家族さえもあきらめかけていたある日、
彼女にとっての朝がその瞬間に
訪れたとでもいうように突然に目も覚ました

tooku hanareta betsu no basho.
gonen’ mo no nagasa ni watatte ishikifumei no “miriri” to iu shoujo ga ita.
nemurihime to yobare, byoumei mo wakarazu kazoku sae mo akiramekaketeita aru hi,
kanojo ni totte no asa ga sono shun’kan’ ni
otozureta to demo iu you ni totsuzen’ ni me mo samashita


Far away—
—a girl, “Miriri”, lay unconscious as she had for the past five years.
They called her “Sleeping Beauty”, and no one knew what illness plagued her.
But on this day, just as her family had begun to lose hope—she opened her eyes.
It was as if, after having eluded her for so long, morning had finally come for her…

「ここは?あれ?あたしは、レジスタンスにいて……戦ってーーーー」

koko wa? are? atashi wa, resistance ni ite…… tatakatte—-

“Where…am I? Huh? Wasn’t I with the resistance? We were fighting…”


自分の名前も憶えている。周囲で涙する家族のことも間違いなく記憶している。
けれど、眠っていたはずの空白の5年間の記憶は、ミリリではなく、カナリアのものとして存在して……

jibun’ no namae mo oboeteiru. shuui de namida suru kazoku no koto mo machigainaku kioku shiteiru.
keredo, nemutteita hazu no kuuhaku no gonen’kan’ no kioku wa, miriri de wa naku, canaria no mono to shite son’zai shite……


She knew her name was Miriri. She recognized her family as she watched them cry tears of joy.
However, her memories of the past five years—those years she was sleeping—were of another girl, Canaria…

「シグーーーー!」

sig—-!

“Sig!!”

記憶の混濁に 酷い眩暈と共感覚
長すぎる眠りに視たのは非現実?

kioku no kon’daku ni hidoi memai to kyoukan’kaku
nagasugiru nemuri ni mita no wa higen’jitsu?

The inconsistencies in her memory induced in her vertigo and synaesthesia
Was what she experienced in her overlong slumber really a fabrication?

歓喜する家族に その物語の事を話しても
「夢を見ていたの」と優しく諭されるだけで

kan’ki suru kazoku ni sono monogatari no koto wo kanashitemo
“yume wo miteita no” to yasashiku satosareru dake de

Though she told her family of the tales in her memory,
Their response was the same: “You were only dreaming.”

そうは思えない 言いようもないリアリティ
彼に触れた腕その体温が ねぇ、まだ今も残っているのに

sou wa omoenai iiyou mo nai reality
kare ni fureta ude sono taion’ ga nee, mada ima mo nokotteiru no ni

But she could not believe them—it felt too real
She could still feel the warmth from when Sig’s arm touched hers

空想儀上で乱反射した揺蕩う二つの視点
バラバラ切り刻まれてただ摩耗するなら嫌だ
向こう側でまた眠っていたい

kuusougijou de ran’han’sha shita tayutau futatsu no shiten’
barabara kirikizamarete tada mamou suru nara iya da
mukougawa de mata nemutteitai

Two perspectives disperse and intertwine in this kaleidoscope fantasia:
Why must I endure this, wasting away as I am cut into pieces!?
I would rather sleep again, and return to the other side!


薄靄は晴れぬまま、この自分に慣れようと日々を過ごしていると、人づてに聖女様が率いる
レジスタンスのことを耳にしてしまう

usumoya wa harenu mama, kono jibun’ ni nareyou to hibi wo sugoshiteiru to, hitodzute ni seijo sama ga hikiiru
resistance no koto wo mimi ni shiteshimau


While she tried to find herself under an unyielding veil of fog, Miriri heard by word of mouth
of a resistance formed under the banner of a holy virgin.

「やっぱりただの夢なんかじゃなかった。あれは、みんな現実だったんだ……!」

“yappari tada no yume nan’ka janakatta. are wa, min’na gen’jitsu dattan’da……!”

“I knew it was not only a dream. All of it, all of it was real!”

駆け出したくなる衝動抑えて深呼吸ひとつ
平静装った 気付かれないように

kakedashitaku naru shoudou osaete shin’kokyuu hitotsu
heisei yosotta kidzukarenai you ni

Resisting the urge to run away that very moment,
She calmed herself, so that no one would know.

過保護な母親と父を愛していないわけはない
けれど同じくらい大切な場所ができたんだ

kahogo na hahaoya to chichi wo aishiteinai wake wa nai
keredo onaji kurai taisetsu na basho ga dekitan’da

It wasn’t as if she did not love her mother and father
But she had a place now just as important to her

とても言い出せない 真っ直ぐに目も見れない
ここにいるべきとわかってる でも、今すぐみんな会いたくて

totemo iidasenai massugu ni me mo mirenai
koko ni iru beki to wakatteru demo, ima sugu min’na aitakute

She could not tell her parents, nor could she look them in the eye
She knew she should stay, but she desperately wanted to see everyone again

空想儀上の物語を忘れてしまうことはできない
半身をその地に置いてきた感覚が消えないから
セカイのどこかで今この時も戦っているだろう彼らは
悲しいけど少しずつ命を落としていく 決断は今しかできない

kuusougijou no monogatari wo wasureteshimau koto wa dekinai
han’shin’ wo sono ta ni oitekita kan’kaku ga kienai kara
sekai no dokoka de ima kono toki mo tatakatteiru darou karera wa
kanashii kedo sukoshizutsu inochi wo otoshiteiku ketsudan’ wa ima shika dekinai

She could not forget the story inside her kaleidoscope memories
She could not help but feel she had left half of herself with them
Sadly but surely, they who were still fighting, off somewhere in the world
Did not have long to live, day by day death would stalk them — She had no time to waste

試しに弓を射ていても カナリアと違い上手くは飛ばない
思考に体がついてこない これじゃ彼の背中は守れないーーーー?

tameshi ni yume wo iteitemo canaria to chigai umaku wa tobanai
shikou ni karada ga tsuitekonai kore ja kare no senaka wa mamorenai—-?

Miriri tried her hand at archery, but unlike Canaria, her arrows would not soar
Her body could not keep up with her mind — How could she protect Sig like this?

それぞれ道は別れ 乱暴に引き離されて
それでも自分の意思で 戻る道があるなら……

sorezore michi wa wakare ran’bou ni hikihanasarete
soredemo jibun’ no ishi de modoru michi ga aru nara……

Their paths had been violently torn apart
But if there was some way she could return to him…

「彼は、シグはーーーー今も確かに存在する。じゃあカナリアは……?」

“kare wa, sig wa —- ima mo tashika ni son’zai suru. ja canaria wa……?”

“Sig — he is still out there, somewhere. But what about Canaria…?”


少女は、大切な家族に手紙を書き残し、
必ず戻ることを記して誰にも見つからないようにこっそりと村を出る。
どれだけ旅をすればそこに辿りつくかもわからないまま。
一秒でも早くその場所に戻りたいと願って

shoujo wa, taisetsu na kazoku ni tegami wo kakinokoshi,
hanarazu modoru koto wo shirushite dare ni mo mitsukaranai you ni kossori to mura wo deru.
doredake tabi wo sureba soko ni tadoritsuku ka mo wakaranai mama.
ichibyou demo hayaku sono basho ni modoritai to negatte


“One day I will return,” Miriri wrote to her beloved family,
Before she crept silently out of the village, so that no one would find her.
She did not know how long it might take to find the resistance, or even if she could find them,
But she was driven by the desire to be back with them as soon as possible.


あたしの居場所は、きっとあの背中の裏側。
例えもう戦えないとしても……やっぱりそこにいたいんだ

atashi no ibasho wa, kitto ano senaka no uragawa.
tatoe mou tatakaenai to shitemo…… yappari soko ni itain’da


I belong there beside him, standing with my back to his.
Even if I can now longer fight… still I long to be with him.

Notes:
The translation of the 3rd stanza deviates from the original text to take account of the setting depicted in the lyrics booklet. (It would be confusing without that context.)

I added some line breaks in so they wouldn’t break so awkwardly.

決して慣れることのない緊張感を伴うレジスタンスでの生活。
行動を共にする機会の多いシグとカナリアの間には、いつしか小さな恋心が
芽生えはじめて……。
二人に降り注ぐ不思議な浮遊感。それは、初めての恋

kesshite nareru koto no nai kin’choukan’ wo tomonau resistance de no seikatsu.
koudou wo tomo ni suru kikai no ooi sig to canaria no aida ni wa,
 itsushika chiisa na koigokoro ga
mebaehajimete…….
futari ni furisosogu fushigi na fuyuukan’. sore wa, hajimete no koi

As members of the resistance, anxious fear never strayed far from Sig or Canaria’s minds,
But as they continued to work side by side, a small flower had begun to bud between them…
The strange feeling they felt welling up inside of them — why, it was first love.

『好き、って言葉は強いね。頑張れる力になる!そう思わない?』

suki, tte kotoba wa tsuyoi ne. gan’bareru chikara ni naru! sou omowanai?

The word, ‘love’ really is powerful isn’t it? It gives you the strength to keep fighting!
 Don’t you think so?

水面は澄んで気持ちが上がる 一歩進んで二歩下がる
絶妙な距離感で傍からはどう見ても 二人の想いわかっちゃうのにさ

minamo wa sun’de kimochi ga agaru ippo susun’de niho sagaru
zetsumyou na kyorikan’ de hata kara wa dou mitemo futari no omoi wakacchau no ni sa

The surface of the water was clear, and their spirits rose as the two
 frolicked in the stream one day
While they kept a distance between them, everyone could see
 how they felt about about each other

眼を奪われているのがバレて からかわれちゃって遊ばれて
悲壮感が薄れて爽やかな風が吹く 笑顔の花が咲いた

me wo ubawareteiru no ga barete karakawarechatte asobarete
hisoukan’ ga usurete sawayaka na kaze ga fuku egao no hana ga saita

The others caught them stealing glances at each other, and teased them for it
As a gentle breeze blew by for a moment the despair they faced thinned
 and their smiles blossomed

「空から降り注ぐのが、この瞬間みたいに優しい光ばかりだったらいいのにね」

sora kara furisosogu no ga, kono shun’kan’ mitai ni yasashii hikari bakari dattara ii no ni ne

If only all that fell from the sky were beams of soft and gentle light
 as they are this very moment…

その幻想の蕾は羽化しない事を知りながら

sono gen’sou no tsubomi wa uka shinai koto wo shirinagara

But they knew the dreams of love between them could never fully blossom and take flight

明日会えなくなるかもしれない 命を落とすかもしれない
感傷を消すように ここにいる誰もがさ どこか壁を張ってた

ashita aenaku naru ka mo shirenai inochi wo otosu ka mo shirenai
kan’shou wo kesu you ni koko ni iru dare mo ga sa doko ka kabe wo hatteta

This moment could be their last — the next day, either of them could lose their lives
That was why everyone in the resistance had put up walls to protect their fragile hearts

失うことの怖さを知るからこそ 今この場所に立ってるんだ
それでもその壁を壊す強さを 二人は淡いキスで示してみせた

ushinau koto no kowasa wo shiru kara koso ima kono basho ni tatterun’ da
soredemo sono kabe wo kowasu tsuyosa wo futari wa awai kiss de shimeshitemiseta

They knew how frightening it was to lose someone, that was why they took their stand
However, with a light kiss, they showed that the power between them
 could break those walls down

その幸せは真雪のようにあっけなく溶けてしまった
きっかけさえなく少女は 原因不明の高熱に倒れて 生死の境へ

sono shiawase wa mayuki no you ni akkenaku toketeshimatta
kikkake sae naku shoujo wa gen’in’fumei no kounetsu ni taorete seishi no sakai e

But their happiness was like a feathery first snow, melting away in an instant
For without warning, Canaria collapsed with a high fever, and was soon on the verge of death

「ーーーーどうして!!?」

—-doushite!!?

Why!?

「空から降り注ぐのが この瞬間みたいに優しい光ばかりだったらいいのにね」

sora kara furisosogu no ga kono shun’kan’ mitai ni yasashii hikari bakari dattara ii no ni ne

If only all that fell from the sky were beams of soft and gentle light
 like they did in that moment then…

その幻想の蕾はほら案の定 彼らのためには花開くことなく
壊れたみたいな枯れた笑いだけ残されてーーーー

sono gen’sou no tsubomi wa hora an’ no jou karera no tame ni wa hana hiraku koto naku
kowareta mitai na kareta warai dake nokosarete—-

See, their budding dreams — they were not meant to be, not for them
What remains are only withered and broken smiles…


シグの献身的な看病のおかげもあってか、意識を取り戻したカナリア。
けれど目を覚ました少女は、この5年間の記憶を完全に喪失していてーーーー

sig no ken’shin’ teki na kan’byou no okage mo atte ka, ishiki wo torimodoshita canaria.
keredo me wo samashita shoujo wa, kono gonen’kan’ no kioku wo
 kan’zen’ ni soushitsu shiteite—-

Perhaps Sig’s devoted care for her made a difference, for finally
 Canaria regained her consciousness
But by the time she had opened her eyes, all her memories of the past five years were gone…

「んー?あなたは、誰……?」

n-? anata wa, dare……?

Who… Who are you?

『遠くで、鴉が鳴いていた。笑うように、蔑むようにーーーー』

tooku de, karasu ga naiteita. warau you ni, sakesumu you ni—-

Off in the distance a crow was cawing, as if cackling at their misfortune…

Lyrics: 少女病
Album: 創傷クロスライン Sousyou Crossline
Circle: 少女病
Event: C82

片方の眼を失くした鴉が 夕闇に処方箋を銜えて願望を攫った
溶け込んだ死に寄り添う少女は 魔女の使命を受けて
ほら魔法みたいな嘘を吐く

katahou no me wo nakushita karasu ga yuuyami ni shohousen’ wo kuwaete gan’bou wo saratta
tokekon’da shi ni yorisou shoujo wa majo no shimei wo ukete
hora mahou mitai na uso wo tsuku

A one-eyed raven with a prescription in its beak, stole hope away as it flew by in the twilight
A young woman, fawning over the death in its message under orders from the witch
Spun lies as if they were magic spells…

灰と苦悩燻るこのセカイに
反旗を翻し聖女の名の下に立ち上がれ

hai to kunou kusuburu kono sekai ni
han’ki wo hirugaeshi seijo no na no moto ni tachiagare

Rise against this ashen world smoldering in anguish
Stand with the holy virgin leading the charge of our resistance!

はじまりはほんの小さな火種に過ぎなくて
でも肩寄せ合った炎は無限大に燃え上がる!

hajimari wa hon’no chiisa na hidane ni suginakute
demo kata yoseatta honoo wa mugen’dai ni moeagaru!

Only a small spark was needed to ignite the flames
With each small fire coming together in an infinite conflagration!

あとどれだけの血が流れたら この仄暗い夜が終わるだろう?
不安に折れそうになっても 背中預けるキミがいる
今探しているのが”理想”なら それを”空想”では終わらせない
誰も泣かなくてもすむように このセカイを変えてやる

ato dore dake no chi ga nagaretara kono honokurai yoru ga owaru darou?
fuan’ ni oresou ni nattemo senaka adzukeru kimi ga iru
ima sagashiteiru no ga “risou” nara sore wo “kuusou” de wa owarasenai
dare mo nakanakutemo sumu you ni kono sekai wo kaeteyaru

How much more blood must be spilt for this dim night to end?
I feel I might break from the stress but for you I can depend on
It may be ideals we seek, but I will not let our dream end in fantasy
We’ll change this world so no one is forced to shed their tears

”背徳”と糾弾されて
救う対象であるはずの人々に飛礫投げられても

“haitoku” to kyuudan’ sarete
sukuu taishou de aru hazu no hitobito ni tsubute nageraretemo

Though those we aim to save
May throw stones, accusing us of falling from grace —

僕らの行動が正義だ善だなんて言わない
けれど命を弄ぶ魔女は このセカイの敵だ!

bokura no koudou ga seigi da zen’ da nan’te iwanai
keredo inochi wo moteasobu majo wa kono sekai no teki da!

Though I will not make claim our efforts reflect virtue or justice —
Those witches who make mortal life their playthings are enemies of this world!

全てを守る力はなくて 全てを捨て去れる勇気もない
ならこの手の届く限りに 今日を戦うしかないだろう?
今小さく引かれてた線が 幾重にも重なり交差して
いつの日か大きな本流に 流れは変わってゆく

subete wo mamoru chikara wa nakute subete wo sutesareru yuuki mo nai
nara kono te no todoku kagiri ni kyou wo tatakau shika nai darou?
ima chiisaku hikareteta sen’ ga ikue ni mo kasanari kousa shite
itsu no hi ka ooki na hon’ryuu ni nagare wa kawatteyuku

We have not the power to save all nor do we have the courage to leave all behind
So what choice have we but to fight each day for all within reach, as if is our last?
Though each of our fates be like a thread, together we continue on intertwined
So that one day we become like a roaring stream of change

いつか集うみんなが 家族のような気になっちゃって
本当にただの錯覚って わかっていても嬉しかったんだ

itsuka tsudou min’na ga kazoku no you na ki ni nacchatte
hon’tou ni tada no sakkaku tte wakatteitemo ureshikattan’da

In time, all of us that gathered together became like family
Though I knew it was but an illusion, I could not help but be happy

ーー

あとどれだけの血が流れたら この仄暗い夜が終わるのだろう?
不安に折れそうになっても 背中預けるキミがいれば

ato dore dake no chi ga nagaretara kono honokurai yoru ga owaru no darou?
fuan’ ni oresou ni nattemo senaka adzukeru kimi ga ireba

How much more blood must be spilt for this dim night to end?
I feel I might break from the stress but for you I depend on

例えそれぞれが小さな歯車だとしても
揃えば大きな力を生み出す原動力になる
このセカイだって変えてやる

tatoe sorezore ga chiisa na haguruma da to shitemo
soroeba ooki na chikara wo umidasu gen’douryoku ni naru
kono sekai datte kaeteyaru

Even though each of us is but a tiny gear
Locked together we can drive a great power
Enough to force this world to change


聖女が旗を掲げ、立ち上がった対魔女戦線。
そのレジスタンスは戦災孤児を中心に、
徐々に勢力を拡大させて……。
集団の中核を担うのは、体格に見合わぬ大剣を振るう少年”シグ”と、
弓の名手である少女”カナリア”。
幾つもの運命線が交差して、やがて物語が形成されてゆく

seijo ga kata wo kakage, tachiagatta taimajosen’sen’.
sono resistance wa sen’saikoji wo chuushin’ ni,
jojo ni seiryoku wo kakudai sasete…….
shuudan’ no chuukaku wo ninau no wa, taikaku ni miawanu daiken’ wo furuu shounen’ “sig” to,
yumi no meishu de aru “canaria”.
ikutsu mo no un’meisen’ ga kousa shite, yagate monogatari ga keisei sareteyuku

The holy virgin raised her flag, and her company stood against the witches.
While most members of the resistance were war orphans,
Their power grew day by day……
At the center stood two: a boy named “Sig” who wielded a sword which looked too big for him,
And a talented archer named, “Canaria”
As the many threads of fate crossed each other, a story begun to take form.

『例え傷だらけになっても、いつかーー!』

tatoe kizudarake ni nattemo, itsuka–!

Though they be covered in scrapes and wounds, their eyes lie on the future!

Dark Night Memories

Sponsored by: ?

C82, coming up on 6 years ago.

This song is a little puzzling, not just because of the wording, but depending on whether you think the memories are of Rumia becoming Rumia or memories of those being eaten by her or memories of her eating people, which she seems to be both aware and unaware of, and ambivalent.

That said, the metaphor/imagery of memories beckoning to someone from their container you’ve presumably crushed is pretty cool.

I’ll just think about Rumia munching on brains because that’s best.

I am taking requests/commissions on a case-by-case basis only. While I occasionally skim the comments, the best way to get a hold of me is to send me an e-mail; I will try to get back to you within a few days. You can find my e-mail on the “About” page.

流れるようにこの身は空を泳いで
何もいらない 意味など無くても良いの

nagareru you ni kono mi wa sora wo oyoide
nani mo iranai imi nado nakutemo ii no

I swim through the sky as if it were a flowing stream
I want for nothing — I don’t care if life has any meaning

迷える甘い魂さえ熱くなれない
泡のように儚く霞んで眠りたい

mayoeru amai tamashii sae atsuku narenai
awa no you ni hakanaku kasun’de nemuritai

Not even sweet wandering spirits kindle my soul
I wish to fade out into slumber, like foam on the water

誰も見ないで私の事を月に隠れ
震えながら立ちすくんだこの身体
闇を纏って泣いているのは朽ちた記憶
塗りつぶした箱の中でまだ手招きしている

dare mo minaide watashi no koto wo tsuki ni kakure
furuenagara tachisukun’da kono karada
yami wo matotte naiteiru no wa kuchita kioku
nuritsubushita hako no naka de mada temaneki shiteiru

Don’t look at me! May I be hidden in the moon’s light
But for trembling, my body’s frozen stiff
Clocked in darkness, my rot ridden memories cry
Beckoning to me still, from within their crushed container

好奇心など持てば もう戻れないの
真っ暗闇で呼吸も出来なくなるわ

koukishin’ nado moteba mou modorenai no
makkurayami de kokyuu mo dekinaku naru wa

If you have any curiosity there’s no hope left for you
In the pitch black darkness you’ll be unable to breathe

ざわめく胸の奥の声に耳を塞いで
泡のように儚く霞んで眠りたい

zawameku mune no oku no koe ni mimi wo fusaide
awa no you ni hakanaku kasun’de nemuritai

Trying to ignore the restless voices deep in my chest
I wish to fade out into slumber, like foam on the water

作られていた殻の世界は月に隠れ
頭の中駆け巡って動けない
闇を纏って泣いているのは朽ちた記憶
塗りつぶした箱の中でまだ手招きしている

tsukurareteita kara no sekai wa tsuki ni kakure
atama no naka kakemegutte ugokenai
yami wo matotte naiteiru no wa kuchita kioku
nuritsubushita hako no naka de mata temaneki shiteiru

May this hollow creation of a world hide in the moon’s light
I’m frozen as thoughts race through my mind
Cloaked in darkness, my rot ridden memories cry
Beckoning to me still, from within their crushed container

誰も見ないで誰も来ないで一人で良い
震えながら立ちすくんだこの身体
作られていた殻の世界は月に隠れ
頭の中駆け巡って動けない
闇を纏って泣いているのは朽ちた記憶
塗りつぶした箱の中でまだ手招きしている

dare mo minaide dare mo konaide hitori de ii
furuenagara tachisukun’da kono karada
tsukurareteita kara no sekai wa tsuki ni kakure

Don’t look at me! Leave me be! I want to be alone!
But for trembling, my body’s frozen stiff
May this hollow creation of a world hide in the moon’s light
I’m frozen as thoughts race through my mind
Cloaked in darkness, my rot ridden memories cry
Beckoning to me still, from within their crushed container

それはどこかに繋がるトンネル
覗いた先に光はなくて
ただ闇雲に手探りのまま
ここは何処かと思考をめぐらせ

sore wa dokoka ni tsunagaru tunnel
nozoita saki ni hikari wa nakute
tada yamikumo ni tesaguri no mama
koko wa dokoka to shikou wo megurase

Down a tunnel that leads some place or another
With no light as far as I can see
Through the darkness I search with my hands
Wondering just where it is I’ve gone

螺旋階段くるくる上って
向こうに見えた私の背中
鏡に映る自分は全て
ありのままでそこにいる

rasen’kaidan’ kurukuru nobotte
mukou ni mieta watashi no senaka
kagami ni utsuru jibun’ wa subete
ari no mama de soko ni iru

I climb a spiral staircase round and round
And see my see my own back ahead of me
Myselves I see in the mirror are all
There just as they always are –

それなのに何故いつも見失ってしまうのだろう
目の前に虚像だけに縋り生きているの
透明な感情にこそ真実が宿っていると
分かってる 分からない でたらめに空つかんだ

sore nano ni naze itsumo miushinatteshimau no darou
me no mae ni kyozou dake ni sugari ikiteiru no
toumei na kan’jou ni koso shin’jitsu ga yadotteiru to
wakatteru wakaranai detarame ni sora tsukan’da

But then why is it I’m always losing sight of myself?
I only live clinging to empty images before my eyes.
“It is in transparent emotions that the truth is found.”
Yes, I know – But no, I don’t! I swipe the air in front of me.

ほら さかさまに 落ちる
上昇して地に辿り着いた
まだ鏡像の中で 利き腕を見失っている
ほら さかさまに 落ちる
苦しいのに 涙を忘れた
鮮烈な衝動を かくさないで なくさないで

hora sakasama ni ochiru
joushou shite chi ni tadoritsuita
mada kyouzou no naka de kikiude wo miushinatteiru
hora sakasama ni ochiru
kurushii no ni namida wo wasureta
sen’retsu na shoudou wo kakusanaide nakusanaide

And now I’m falling upside down
By rising, I reach up to the ground
My good arm still lost inside a mirror image
And now I’m falling upside down
It’s painful, but I’ve forgotten my tears
Don’t hide my brilliant impulses, don’t lose them!

それはどこかに繋がるトンネル
ずいぶん先に進んだけれど
白と黒との間はきっと
段階的な無限の明暗

sore wa dokoka ni tsunagaru tunnel
zuibun’ saki ni susun’dakeredo
shiro to kuro to no aida wa kitto
dan’kaiteki na mugen’ no meian’

Down a tunnel that leads some place or another
I’ve wandered on for quite some time but
In the gap between white and black is surely
A levelled but endless contrast

螺旋階段くるくる下って
最後の段で追いつく背中
押して落としてしまえるのなら
そのまま死ぬのだろうね

rasen’kaidan’ kurukuru kudatte
saigo no dan’ de oitsuku senaka
oshite otoshiteshimaeru no nara
sono mama shinu no darou ne

I descend a spiral staircase round and round
And at the final step having caught up
I wonder if I go ahead and shove my own back
I’ll fall down and die just like that –

それなのに何故いつか叶うと夢みるのだろう
顧みることもせずに憧れ募らせて
本当の自分のこともっと見えなくなってくの
分かってる 分からない でたらめに空つかんだ

sore nano ni naze itsuka kanau to yumemiru no darou
kaerimiru koto mo sezu ni akogare tsunorasete
hon’tou no jibun’ no koto motto mienakunatteku no
wakatteru wakaranai detarame ni sora tsukan’da

But then why is it I dream that my wishes might come true?
I never look back, but am filled with aspirations
And so lose sight even more of who I really am
Yes, I know – But no, I don’t! I swipe the air in front of me.

ほら さかさまに 落ちる
飛び込んで宙に投げ出された
まだ鏡像の中で 思うように動けないから
ほら さかさまに 落ちる
苦しくても 笑顔を作った
劇的な衝動を ころさないで こわさない

hora sakasama ni ochiru
tobikon’de chuu ni nagedasareta
mada kyouzou no naka de omouyou ni ugokenai kara
hora sakasama ni ochiru
kurushikutemo egao wo tsukutta
gekiteki na shoudou wo korosanaide kowasanai

And now I’m falling upside down
I leapt and was thrown into midair
Since I still cannot move freely, inside a mirror image
And now I’m falling upside down
It’s painful, but I make myself smile
Don’t kill my dramatic impulses, don’t break them!
