September 21, 2016

Seisen to Shinigami Daiyonbu “Kokushou no Shinigami” ~Eiyuu no Kikyou~
聖戦と死神 第4部「黒色の死神」~英雄の帰郷~
The Holy War and the Reaper Part 4 “The Black Reaper” ~The Return of the Hero~

Alvarez亡命の報は 帝国のみならず
Garia全土に強い衝撃を響かせ疾った…

Alvarez boumei no hou wa teikoku nomi narazu
Garia zendo ni tsuyoi shougeki o hibikase hashitta…

The news of Alvarez’s exile sent shockwaves reverberating and racing
Not only through the empire, but through the whole of Garia..

時代は英雄を求め 反撃の狼煙は上げられた
旧Castilla領が 帝国に対し独立宣戦を布告
旧Lombardo領 旧Preuzehn領がそれに続き
帝国内部で高まりつつあった聖戦への反感が遂に爆発

jidai wa eiyuu o motome hangeki no noroshi wa agerareta
kyuu Castilla-ryou ga teikoku ni taishi dokuritsu sensen o fukoku
kyuu Lombardo-ryou kyuu Preuzehn-ryou ga sore ni tsudzuki
teikoku naibu de takamaritsutsuatta seisen e no hankan ga tsui ni bakuhatsu

The age called out for a hero; the signal went up for a counterattack
The former Castilla put up a resistance against the empire and declared a war of independence
The former Lombardo and Prussia followed suit
The antipathy toward the Holy War that had been on the rise within the empire finally exploded

Alvarezを頼り 軍・民・問わず亡命者が殺到
更に熾烈な四正面作戦を強いられた帝国は
次第に領土を削られ 国力を疲弊していった…
そして…戦局の流転は 時代にひとつの決断を投げ掛ける…

Alvarez o tayori gun – min – towazu boumeisha ga sattou
sara ni shiretsu na shijoumen sakusen o shiirareta teikoku wa
shidai ni ryoudo o kezurare kokuryoku o hihei shite itta…
soshite… senkyoku no ruten wa jidai ni hitotsu no ketsudan o nagekakeru…

Following Alvarez’s example, the army and the people alike rushed to flee
Forced into a fierce fight on four fronts,
The empire soon lost territory and exhausted its resources…
And then… the era produced a single conclusion to the vicissitudes of war…

それは…皇帝 聖Childebert六世より
Britannia女王へと宛てられた一通の親書…

sore wa… koutei sei Childebert rokusei yori
Britannia joou e to aterareta ittsuu no shinsho…

That was… a single letter sent by Emperor St. Childebert the Sixth
To the queen of Britannia…

帝国暦四年『Verseine休戦協定会談』
帝国領Yvelines Verseine宮殿
大理石の回廊を進む薔薇の女王
左にはParsifal 右にはAlvarez
柱の陰には招かれざる客…

teikoku reki yon-nen “Verseine kyuusenkyoutei kaidan”
teikoku-ryou Yvelines Verseine kyuuden
dairiseki kairou o susumu bara no joou
hidari ni wa Parsifal, migi ni wa Alvarez
hashira no kage ni wa manekarezaru kyaku…

The fourth year of the Imperial calendar; the “Verseine Peace Talks”
At the Verseine Palace in the imperial territory of Yvelines
The Rose Queen walked the marble halls
With Parsifal on her left and Alvarez on her right
But in the shadow of a pillar was an uninvited guest…

黒の教団より放たれし刺客…
死角より放たれし時の凶弾…
嗚呼…歴史は改竄を赦さない…

kuro no kyoudan yori hanatareshi shikaku…
shikaku yori hanatareshi toki [kuro] no kyoudan…
aa… rekishi wa kaizan o yurusanai…

An assassin sent forth by the Black Church
A bullet of time sent forth from their blind spot…
Ah… history will not permit alterations…

凍りつく時間の中を 崩れ堕ちるAlvarez
Parsifalの雷槍が閃き 崩れ落ちるGefenbauer

kooritsuku toki no naka o kuzureochiru Alvarez
Parsifal no yari ga hirameki kuzureochiru Gefenbauer

In that frozen moment, Alvarez crumpled to the ground
Parsifal’s lance flashed, and Gefenbauer crumpled to the ground

それは…歴史の流れが変わる瞬間だろうか?
それとも最初から全て決められていたのだろうか…

sore wa… rekishi no nagare ga kawaru shunkan darou ka?
soretomo saisho kara subete kimerarete ita no darou ka…

Was that… the moment that the flow of history changed?
Or was it all decided from the start…?

「…先に逝ったのか…Gefenbauer…人間とは全く…哀しい生物だな…」

“… saki ni itta no ka… Gefenbauer… ningen [hito] to wa mattaku… kanashii seibutsu [mono] da na…”

“… So you went first, did you… Gefenbauer… Humans really are… tragic creatures…”

彼を誘う最期の闇 その中にさえ…

kare o izanau saigo no yami sono naka ni sae…

Even within the darkness that beckoned to him in his last moments…

「嗚呼…朱い…何て朱い夕陽なんだ…Charlotte…私は必ず…必ず帰って…」

“aa… akai… nante akai yuuhi nanda… Charlotte… watashi wa kanarazu… kanarazu kaette…”

“Ah… so red… what a red sunset… Charlotte… I swear I will.. I will return to you…”

Britannia暦630年 英雄Albers・Alvarez
Verseine宮殿 にて暗殺者の凶弾に倒れる…
彼の墓碑銘にはLuna Balladが捧げた詩の一節が刻まれた…

Britannia reki 630 nen eiyuu Albers Alvarez
Verseine kyuuden nite ansatsusha no kyoudan ni taoreru…
kare no bohimei ni wa Luna Ballad ga sasageta uta no issetsu ga kizamareta…

So, in the year 630 of the Britannian calendar, the hero Albers Alvarez
Was felled by an assassin’s bullet in Verseine Palace…
On his tombstone was engraved a verse offered up by Luna Ballad…

多くを殺し 多くを生かした 多くを悩み 多くを為した
<Belgaの同胞>ここに眠ると…

ooku o koroshi ooku o ikashita ooku o nayami ooku o nashita
{Belga no douhou} [Arbelge] koko ni nemuru to…

He killed many and kept many alive; he troubled many and helped many
Here lies our comrade of Belga, Arbelge…

Garia全土を巻き込んでなお停まらない大戦
その終結には…更に多くの血と涙 五年の歳月を要するのである…

Garia zendo o makikonde nao tomaranai taisen
sono shuuketsu ni wa… sara ni ooku no chi to namida gonen no saigetsu o yousuru no de aru…

The war that had enveloped all of Garia without stopping
In the end… had demanded a vast quantity of tears and blood, and five years of time…

夕陽に染まる丘 寄り添うように並ぶ二つの墓標
白鴉が凛と羽ばたいて往く 終わらない空の向こうへ…

yuuhi ni somaru oka yorisou you ni narabu futatsu no bohyou
hakua ga rin to habataite yuku owaranai sora no mukou e…

On a hill stained red by the setting sun, two gravestones nestle side by side
The white crow flies with dignity beyond the endless sky…

(Original lyrics by Revo)

From → Chronicle 2nd
