Doll of Hourai

蓬莱人形

Doll of Hourai

満月の下の、草木も眠る丑三つ時。
人間と妖怪の肝試しは、いったい何を恐れる?
最大の大罪の犠牲者は、いったいどこに居る?

Under the full moon, even the plants are asleep in the dead of the night.
Just what is there to be afraid of in this human and youkai's trial of guts? [1]
Just where is the victim of the greatest sin?

BGM: エクステンドアッシュ ~ 蓬莱人

BGM: Extend Ash ~ Person of Hourai

Keine Kamishirasawa ENTERS

Keine

待っていたぞ。

満月の夜にやってくるとはいい度胸だ。

I've been waiting.

You've got some guts, challenging me on the night of the full moon.

Marisa

肝試しだからな

Well, this is a trial of guts.

Keine

あの人間には指一本触れさせない!

I won't let you lay one finger on that human!

Keine Kamishirasawa DEFEATED

Marisa

むしろ何も起きない事が不気味だ。
不条理だな。

It sure is creepy when nothing's happening.
Absurd, too.

???

本当の恐怖は、約束された恐怖の
向こうにある。

居るはずのお化け役が消えたお化け屋敷程、
怖い物は無いのよ。

True terror lies beyond the
fear that you expect.

There's nothing more terrifying than a haunted house
devoid of people acting as ghosts.[2]

Fujiwara no Mokou ENTERS

???

鳴く夜雀も黙る丑三つ時の竹林。
こんな時間にほっつき歩く人間が居るなんて。

Even night sparrows are silent in the bamboo forest in the dead of night.
To think that there'd be humans wandering around in here.

Marisa

何者だ?

Who're you?

Alice

魔理沙、こいつは……。

Marisa, this girl...

蓬莱の人の形
藤原 妹紅

Figure of the Person of Hourai
Fujiwara no Mokou

Mokou

私は昔からここに住む人間。
別に取って喰ったりしないよ。

I'm a human who's lived here for a long time.
Don't worry. I won't kidnap you or eat you.

Marisa

人間だと?
そうは見えないがな。

Human?
Doesn't look like one.

Alice

魔理沙、この人は確かに人間みたいだけど。
気をつけて。

Marisa, she definitely looks human...
but, be careful.

Mokou

で、こんな時間にここに来た目的は何?

So, what are you doing out this late?

Marisa

筍狩り。

Harvesting bamboo shoots.

Alice

肝試し。

A trial of guts.

Mokou

どっち?

Which of those?

Marisa

判れよ……。

Oughta be obvious...

Mokou

満月の下、人間と妖怪の二人で肝試し。

人間は勇気があるというか、馬鹿というか。

そこな人間の肝は、さぞ硬くて歯ごたえが
あるんでしょうね。

Beneath the full moon, a human and youkai are on a trial of guts.

Does the human have guts, or is she a fool?

That human over there ought to have guts that are
pretty stiff and tough to chew.

Marisa

あんた本当に人間か?

これほど肝好きの人間見たこと無いぜ。
しかも生きているし。

Are you really human?

Can't say I've seen any humans who're this fond of guts.
At least, none who're still alive.[3]

Alice

魔理沙には生きている様に見える?

私には死んでいる様に見える。
いや、生きていない様に見える、かな?

Does she look alive to you, Marisa?

She looks dead to me.
Well, maybe she just looks like she's not alive?

Mokou

もう、人を幽霊みたいに扱ってぇ。

でも、殆ど正解だわ。
なかなかの幻視力ね。

Hey, don't treat people like phantoms.

That's almost correct, though.
You can see through illusions pretty well.

Marisa

肝好きってところか?

So I guess yer a gut-eater, then?

Mokou

実はね。

私には死が無いの。

死なないって事は、生きてもいない。

死と生という余計な状態が無くなり、
純粋な人間に近い人間。

ある意味幽霊みたいなものかもね。

Actually...

I can't die.

To be devoid of death is to be devoid of life.

Without the unnecessary states of life and death,
I'm about as close as you can get to a pure human.

So I may be like a phantom, in a certain sense.

Alice

死なないですって!
煮ても焼いても。

So she won't die!
Even if we roast or bake her, too.[4]

Marisa

蒸しても揚げてもなんて言ったか?

How about if we boil or fry her?

Alice

人間が不老不死になったって事は……。

例の伝説の薬が存在するって事よ。
やっぱり嘘じゃなかったんだ。

If a human could reach a state of immortality...

That legendary medicine must really exist.
It wasn't a lie, after all.

Marisa

何の話か判らんな。

一体、誰に嘘の様な本当の話を
吹き込まれたと言うんだ?

I dunno what you're talking about.

Who the heck would tell you a true story
and make it sound like a lie?

Mokou

例の薬?
蓬莱の事?

そんなもの、とうの昔に全て使って
しまったよ。

確かに私はその薬を奪って、不老不死となり
今に至る。

輝夜はいまだ私を亡き者にしようとするが、
それも無理な話ね。

もう千年以上も続く馬鹿な争いよ。

That medicine?
You mean the Hourai Elixir?

That old thing. I used it all up
a long, long time ago.

Certainly, I stole that medicine,
and am immortal even now.

Kaguya still tries to kill me,
but it's impossible to do that.

This stupid fight of ours has dragged on for over a thousand years now.

Marisa

判ったぜ。
全て判った。

やっぱり、今回の肝試しのお化け役はお前だ。

輝夜に肝試しの話を持ちかけられた時から
おかしいと思ったんだ。

輝夜を倒した私なら、お前を始末できると
踏んだんだろうな。

I get it now.
All of it.

So, you're playing the role of the ghost in this haunted house.

I did think that this whole "trial of guts" thing
sounded weird when Kaguya brought it up.

I defeated Kaguya, so it follows that I
could put an end to you.

Alice

ちょっと! 輝夜を倒したのは魔理沙一人の
力じゃないでしょ?

それに、人間を倒すのは妖怪の仕事。
目の前の貴方は、私に倒されるべきなの。

Hey! You're not trying to steal all
the credit for yourself, are you?

Besides, defeating a human is a job for a youkai.
The person before us is obviously mine to defeat.

Mokou

なんと、輝夜を倒した?
目の前のこんな二人が?

なんと言うことかしら。あのにっくき月人が
こんな人妖にやられるなんて。

これは久しぶりに歯応えのある刺客に
なりそうね。

いや、歯応えがあるのは肝かしら?

What, Kaguya was defeated?
By these two in front of me?

How do I say this? To think that such a troublesome
Lunarian would be done in by a team like this.

It's been a long time since I've had to
confront such tough assassins.

Or maybe it's just your guts that are tough?

Alice

残念だわ、蓬莱の薬。
是非とも手に入れてみたかったわね。

It's too bad about that Hourai Elixir.
I wanted to get my hands on it no matter what.

Marisa

私の肝は健康だ。硬くは無い。
したがって私には薬は不要だよ。

My guts are totally healthy. Not stiff at all.
Thus, I don't need any medicine.

Mokou

蓬莱の薬、人間は決して口にしては
ならぬ禁忌の薬。

一度手をだしゃ、大人になれぬ。
二度手をだしゃ、病苦も忘れる。

The Hourai Elixir is a forbidden medicine
that should never be consumed by humans.

With a single touch, you will never become an adult.
With a second touch, you will forget all disease and illness.

BGM: 月まで届け、不死の煙

BGM: Reach for the Moon, Immortal Smoke

Mokou

三度手をだしゃ……、
お前達も永遠の苦輪に悩むがいい!

With a third touch...
Your souls will forever churn in torment!

Fujiwara no Mokou DEFEATED

Mokou

あーれー。
歯応え在りすぎるぅ。

Aw, maaan.
That was way too tough for me...

Marisa

まだやるか?
死なない、ってのは本当の様だな。

Wanna go again?
Looks like you really can't die.

Alice

死ななくても、そろそろ動ける限界が来てる
んじゃないかしら?

She can't die, sure, but doesn't it look like
she's running out of stamina?

Mokou

もうとっくに限界よ。いい加減にしないと、
明日筋肉痛で動けなくなっちゃうわ。

I already have. I'd better give it a rest
before my muscle pain tomorrow keeps me from moving.

Alice

筋肉痛で済むの?

Muscle pain? That's all?

Marisa

いつも思うんだが、不老不死の体を丁度
半分に割ると、どっちが本体になるんだ?

Y'know, I've always wondered. If you divide an immortal
right down the middle, which half still counts as their body?

Alice

いつも思わないでよそんなこと。

不老不死は、肉体を捨てる事。

魂のみが本体となり、新しい肉体を生める
ようになる事よ。

魂は大きさを持たないから、好きな所に
新しい肉体を造る。

逆に魂を失った肉体はすぐに滅ぶでしょう?

Why would you always wonder something like that?

Immortality is like casting away the physical body.

Your soul alone is what you actually are,
and it's able to produce a new body.

Souls don't have a particular size, so they can
create a new body wherever they like.

Conversely, a body without a soul would perish rather quickly, right?

Mokou

やけに詳しいわね。

蓬莱の薬を欲しがっていたみたいだし、
不老不死にでもなろうとでも思ったの?

You sure know an awful lot.

It looked like you really wanted the Hourai Elixir.
Did you want to become immortal too, or something?

Alice

別に。魂に興味があっただけよ。
人形を自立させられないかと思ってね。

それに妖怪には効かないんでしょう?
その薬。

Not really. I'm just interested in souls.
I thought I could use them to make independent dolls.

Besides, that elixir wouldn't even work
on youkai, would it?

Marisa

なぁ、気になるんだが。

魂が大きさを持たないなら、妖夢にくっつい
ているアレはなんなんだ?

Hey, I got another question.

If souls don't have a particular size, then what's that thing
that's always stickin' around Youmu?

Alice

アレは幽霊でしょ? 別物よ。
そんなところを気にしないの。

It's a phantom, isn't it? Totally different thing.
Never mind that, anyway.

Mokou

私が不死なら幽霊は不生。

肝と形が異なるだけで、似たようなものかもね。

As I am undying, phantoms are unliving.

Maybe all that's different is our form. Or guts.

Marisa

そうだった。
どうだ? 私の肝試しは。

Huh, I see.
So, how did my trial of guts go?

Mokou

そうねぇ。硬くて黒くて……。
肝硬変?

Oh, well. They're hard and blackish...
Perhaps it's liver cirrhosis?

Marisa

げげ、そんなにお酒飲んでたっけ?

Aw, no, have I been drinking that much?

Alice

魔理沙、肝臓が悪い時は肝臓を食べるのよ。
それに不老不死の肝はね……。

Marisa, to cure your guts, you should eat someone else's.
Plus, an immortal's guts are...

Marisa

不老不死とはいえ、人間の肝はちょっと。

A human's guts would be a bit much, immortality aside.

Mokou

不老不死の体は、病には冒されないから、
中まで奇麗よ。

食べさせないけど。

An immortal's body is immune to all disease,
so my innards are totally clean.

But don't go eating them.

Marisa

食べないよぅ……。
不老不死は魅力だがな。

I'm not gonna...
Although the whole immortality thing is pretty appealing.

Notes[edit]

  1. "肝試し" is a Japanese tradition of going out to somewhere scary, such as a forest at night or an abandoned house, in order to "test your guts", or see just what it takes to scare you(and other people). You can watch it on chapter 4 of Oriental Sacred Place. The translation "trial of guts" works well for the puns that the characters later make.
  2. This line would show Mokou's mind as an immortal. Read the "terror" and "ghost" as "death".
  3. Marisa might be thinking about zombies or other kinds of undead that feed on the flesh of living humans.
  4. A Japanese idiom "too obstinate", lit. "inedible even if boiled or grilled" (煮ても焼いても食えない nitemo yaitemo kuenai).
