Composer's Greeting

Nice to probably meet you. I'm ZUN.
I was going for a feeling like that of strange ghosts gathering around when you listen to this CD.
I decided to try combining the songs with the booklet, if you have the time, please read the comments while listening.
By the way, pay all the charge for dispelling the ghosts by yourself, please.


そういえばこれ、誰のお墓かしら? Now that you mention it, I wonder whose grave this is?

夜のデンデラ野を逝く Passing On through the Dendera Fields in the Night


"Yes, I'm sure this is it."
Renko said so, and showed me a notebook with some photos.
We'd be disappointed if we couldn't find anything, because we came all the way here on a chilly autumn night.
Though, honestly, I hoped to avoid acting like a grave-robber.

少女秘封倶楽部 Girls' Sealing Club


"Merry, shall we go and see the entrance in Rendaino?"
It was two days ago that she made the proposition.
The Sealing Club, whose sole members are the two of us, is mere common club for mediums.
Yes, it's a group for mediums, but we are not into ghost summoning or exorcising as the others do.
They just believe we are an incompetent group that does not participate in the usual activities, but the truth is...

東方妖々夢 ~ Ancient Temple Eastern Mystic Dream ~ Ancient Temple

「蓮台野の入り口って、何? 蓮子。」

"What is this entrance in Rendaino, Renko?"
She told me out of the blue, so it was the only thing I could say, having never heard of such a thing before.
"Well, just look."
Renko handed me a photo. It showed an ancient temple like I've never seen before.
"This is the Netherworld."

古の冥界寺 Ancient Temple in the Netherworld


"How come you have a photo of the Netherworld?"
"I have a connection you don't know, Merry."
I have no idea what the connection is, but I guess it's something like a spirit photograph from the dead.
"And in this picture, if you look beyond the temple gate..."

幻視の夜 ~ Ghostly Eyes Illusionary Night ~ Ghostly Eyes


"See, the gate is here. And on the other side of it, doesn't that obviously look like our world?"
She pointed at the darkened field, and there was a single gravestone visible.
It looks like another atmosphere from the one in the picture, definitely our world's...
Also, I hesitated to tell her that the correct term is Sanmon gate and not temple gate.

魔術師メリー Merry, the Magician


The truth of the Sealing Club is that we are a group for exposing the boundaries that surround this world.
It's supposed to be forbidden though, as there is the fear they may become destroyed.
Even so, I can see the borders of these boundaries. Even if I don't do anything I can see them.
It's inevitable, I just see them.

Then I remembered when Renko mentioned "an entrance in Rendaino".
Did she find out where the entrance is from this picture?
"It's easy. We can see where the moon and the stars are pictured, can't we?"
According to Renko, she can tell what time it is by the stars and where she is by the moon.
Renko is always complaining I have unsettling eyes, I think her eyes are more unsettling than mine.

過去の花 ~ Fairy of Flower Flower of Past Days ~ Fairy of Flower


Lycoris is so creepy! I've detested it since I was a child. (note)
"The entrance is a gravestone where lycoris grows the thickest in Rendaino." That phrase escaped from my lips somehow.
Renko believed me entirely, saying that since it's from me, it must be true.
It seems that she has decided our destination by herself.

Finally, the investigating the ghostly field for holes in the boundary has come!
The field is deserted at night, ideal conditions for our activity, so we left for it in the evening.
We set off in high spirits at first, but when we arrived at this place, we quickly calmed down.
Now that I think about it, this ghostly field is a graveyard...

少女幻葬 ~ Necro-Fantasy A Maiden's Illusionary Funeral ~ Necro-Fantasy


I figure this gravestone is the one Renko spoke of, but I can see nothing else.
Renko was urging me. I tried touching the grave, pulling up the inscription plaques, and al sorts of things.
She looked up the sky and murmured "2:27:41". How unsettling...
In the end, it seems I'm the only one acting like a grave-robber.
The gravestone is heavy but I managed to turn it...
"2:30 sharp!" she said just as I turned the stone by a quarter-rotation.
Even though it is autumn now, a panorama of cherry blossoms spread out around us.

幻想の永遠祭 Eternal Festival of Illusions


The autumn leaves had already fallen. Our incompetent club continues with very little activity.
My partner, who has a habit of looking up the night sky and murmuring the time, is running late for our appointment.
"Sorry to keep you waiting!"
"You're 2 minutes and 19 seconds late."
My partner took out a picture and started talking as usual.
"But never mind that, Merry, why don't we go see the entrance at the Hakurei Shrine?"
