博霊神社 The Hakurei Shrine.
異変は解決したが、勿論参拝客が増えたりはしない。 The incident was resolved, but as always, the shrine saw no resulting increase in visitors.
霊夢「って! なんでよ! なんでいつもそうなのよ!」 Reimu: "HEY! Why's that, huh?! Why is that always what happens?!"
フーマ「当たり前だ。妖怪が出入りする君の神社は、
 麓の人里でも有名なオカルトスポットだよ」
Fuma: "It's only natural. Your youkai-filled shrine is famously known as an occult spot by everyone in the village down below."
霊夢「そして何勝手に上り込んでる!?」 Reimu: "And what are YOU doing in my shrine?!"
フーマ「本は魔力の源であり、知識の泉である。
 現代の幻想郷のしきたりは調べておいたよ。
 異変の後は巫女の神社へ行き酒を飲む」
Fuma: "Books are a source of magic, and a font of wisdom. I've made sure to read up on modern Gensokyo traditions. After an incident, you visit the shrine maiden's abode and drink sake."
霊夢「無い無い! そんなしきたり無い!」 Reimu: "Nope! Nuh-uh! There's no such tradition!"
フーマ「それからフーマのオカルトはミシャンドラ。
 新時代を象徴するネット都市伝説でオカルトボールは
 頂くよ」
Fuma: "Also, Fuma's urban legend is Mishandra. With this online urban legend that symbolizes our new era, I shall hereby take your Occult Ball."
霊夢「それももう終わってるから!」 Reimu: "That was ages ago!"
フーマが名乗るミシャンドラの名。
それはソロモン72柱の悪魔の、知られざる73番目。
"Mishandra," the name that Fuma had adopted, was the name of the unknown 73rd demon of Solomon's 72.
いかなる記録も文献も残されていないが、
それは召喚者に自らを記録・記憶させない呪いをかける為。
Their existence isn't mentioned in records or documents of any kind, but that's because they curse their summoner to be unable to remember them or write anything down.
…という設定で、インターネットを介し都市伝説となった架空の悪魔。
つまりどこかの誰かのオリジナルキャラクターなのだ。
...That's their "backstory," as it were. They're actually an imaginary demon that became an urban legend via the Internet. In other words, they're somebody's OC.
フーマ「だが構わん。元はと言えばサタンもベリアルも
 似たような物だ。
 主と目的を失いフーマは自分が何者なのかを忘れた」
Fuma: "But that matters not. Even Satan, Belial and so on could be described as having originated in a similar way. I lost my master and my goal, and forgot what sort of being I was originally meant to be."
フーマ「だがフーマがその名を名乗る事で、
 73番目の悪魔はここに確かに顕現する」
Fuma: "But by assuming its name, I, Fuma, can definitively manifest here as that 73rd demon."
時代と共に姿は変われども、誰かの記憶の中に残り続け、
語り継がれる限り、魂は不滅。
Though someone's form may change from era to era, as long as they remain in someone's memory-- as long as their tale continues to be handed down-- their soul is immortal.
かつて霊夢たちが用いた、怪異伝承を武器として身に付ける発想。
フーマはこれが、自分のような名も無き存在に光明をもたらす秘策であると確信した。
The idea to arm oneself with weaponized oral folklore, which Reimu and co. had made use of in the past.
In Fuma's eyes, this was a secret method by which one could shine light upon nameless beings like herself.
彼女は本ならではの豊富な知識と、風魔ならではの名付けの特技を活かし幻想郷各地の消え行く妖怪や神様を、新しい存在として昇華させて回る。 With the bountiful knowledge she held as a book, and the special name-granting techniques she held as one of the Fuuma, she proceeded to go on a journey around Gensokyo, elevating fading youkai and gods from every corner of the land into new beings.
かくして人里は新たな都市伝説で溢れ、以前の異変で見た事の無い新種のオカルトボールまで幻想郷中に出現。
またまた霊夢は解決に奔走する事になるのだが、それはまた別の話である。
The Human Village thus became filled with new urban legends, and all-new varieties of Occult Ball unlike those of the previous incident began to appear throughout Gensokyo.
Reimu would have her hands full with incident-resolution duties yet again, but that's a story for another time.

< Reimu's Scenario   Story   Reimu's Extra >

  1. A play on the Japanese translation of "I've Been Working on the Railroad" (線路は続くよどこまでも, lit. "The Railroad Goes On, However Long"), in the same vein as the first stage title of Reimu's final scenario in Urban Legend in Limbo.
