Yanagi Nagi – Toaru Kaizoku-Ou no Kimagure

April 11, 2014

Toaru Kaizoku-Ou no Kimagure – とある海賊王の気まぐれ – The Whim of a Pirate King

あたしは家族を失った土地を捨て
ひとり海へ
一艘の船を勝手に借りて漕ぎ出した
波が荒れ 死ぬかと思った
気が付けば海賊船の上で
義手をかざす海賊が
「あんな舟じゃ自殺行為だ
海も狂ってきてる
なんなら陸まで送ろう」
嫌だ!あんな忌まわしい場所など
二度と帰るもんか
ここで働からせて
くれませんでしょうか!

atashi wa kazoku o ushinatta tochi o sutete
hitori umi e
issou no fune o katte ni karite kogidashita
nami ga are shinu ka to omotta
ki ga tsukeba kaizokusen no ue de
gishu o kazasu kaizoku ga
“anna fune ja jisatsukoui da
umi mo kurutte kiteru
nannara oka made okurou”
iya da! anna imawashii basho nado
nidoto kaeru mon ka
koko de hatarakarasete
kuremasen deshou ka!

When I lost my family, I left the land behind
And went alone to sea
I borrowed a boat without permission and I started to row
But the waves were wild and I thought I would die
When I came to, I was on a pirate ship
A pirate with a prosthetic arm said,
“Going out on a boat like that is suicide.
The sea can be rough.
If you like, we can take you back to shore.”
“No! I don’t ever want to go back
To that disagreeable place!
Won’t you let me
Stay here and work for you?”

海賊船はどんな波にも負けない
揺るがない
その厨房で食事係を任された
何人居るんだ?
どれだけ作れば連中は
お腹が膨れるのか
義手を愛でる海賊は海賊団の頭で
みんなに慕われていた
海賊なんて名乗って
格好だけつけてる優しい人
あたしもよく可愛がられた

kaizokusen wa donna nami ni mo makenai
yuruganai
sono chuubou de shokuji kakari o makasareta
nannin iru n’da?
dore dake tsukureba renchuu wa
o-naka ga fukureru no ka
gishu o mederu kaizoku wa kaizokudan no kashira de
minna ni shitawarete ita
kaizoku nante nanotte
kakkou dake tsukete’ru yasashii hito
atashi mo yoku kawaigarareta

The pirate ship was equal to any wave
It didn’t so much as sway
They put me in charge of the galley
How many people?
How much do I have to make
To fill everyone’s stomachs?
The pirate with the prosthetic arm was the leader of the band
And was admired by everyone
Though they were pirates
They really seemed like nice people
And always treated me kindly

でも奴らは船を見つけると
容赦なく襲い始めたんだ

demo yatsura wa fune o mitsukeru to
youshanaku osoihajimeta n’da

But when they found a ship
They began a merciless assault

返り血浴びた奴らが
食料抱え戻ってきた
仲間になれたと思ってたのに
泣きながら
操舵室に駆け込み
舵取り船を走らせた
岩壁に向け
義手の冷たい手のひらが
あたしの頬を叩いていた
「生きるための犠牲だ」
でもそれじゃ不公平だ
弱いものいじめだと言うと
「じゃあこれでどうだ」と
服を脱ぎ捨てた
その体の半分はぼろぼろの鉄で
出来てた
「俺も弱い者だ
なあこれからはひとりで
やってこうと思うんだが
この様だ…連れが必要だ
ちょうどいい
おまえがついてきてくれないか」

kaeri chi abita yatsura ga
shokuryou kakaemodotte kita
nakama ni nareta to omotte’ta no ni
nakinagara
soudashitsu ni kakekomi
kaji tori fune o hashiraseta
ganpeki ni muke
gishu no tsumetai tenohira ga
atashi no hoho o tataite ita
“ikiru tame no gisei da”
demo sore ja fukouhei da
yowai mono ijime da to iu to
“jaa kore de dou da” to
fuku o nugisute’ta
sono karada no hanbun wa boroboro no tetsu de
dekite’ta
“ore mo yowai mono da
naa kore kara wa hitori de
yatte kou to omou n’da ga
kono sama da… tsure ga hitsuyou da
choudo ii
omae ga tsuite kite kurenai ka”

They came back soaked in blood
Carrying food with them
Though I thought we’d become friends
Crying,
I ran off to the pilothouse
I took the helm and sent the boat
Sailing straight for a cliff
The cold palm of the prosthetic arm
Slapped me across the cheek
“We have to make these sacrifices to go on living.”
“But that’s unfair!
It’s picking on the weak!”
“Well, then, how about this?” he said
And took off his clothes
Half of his body was made of
Battered iron
“I’m weak, too.
I was thinking of
Striking out on my own from here, but
As it is… I need a companion.
And you’d fit the bill exactly.
Will you come with me?”

ふたりを乗せた小さめの船が
ゆっくり沖へ進んでく
朝の光へと

futari o noseta chiisame no fune ga
yukkuri oki e to susunde’ku
asa no hikari e to

The small boat that carried the two of us
Slowly drifted towards the open sea
Towards the light of the morning

(Original lyrics by Maeda Jun.)
