Two things to note:
1. Emma speaks some sort of Hokkaido dialect. I have tried to change my translation to portray this. If you don't like it, feel free to change it back.
2. I don't know if the sfx translations are correct.
Feel free to use. Comments and corrections are welcome. Credits not necessary, but if you want to credit me, you can do so under the name Akari.
The meeting between the boy and girl raises the curtain to a new type of magical fantasy!!
‘Rings’, ‘rituals’, and ‘power’, this is the story about ‘magic’.
 Art thou
 in sickness // or in health
 Or walking on a thorny path with thy life on the line…
A new type of magical fantasy
The two meet, at a certain place.
The two live, in this world
Chapter 1: The duo’s ritual
 The magical town of Hawkeye.
Sfx: pop pop, pop
 In this place,
 Destiny begins to move…
“What’s this, what’s this?
“Is this some sort of celebration?
“What’s happening, // I wonder?
Sfx: chatter chatter chatter
“The King is!!?
“This is surprising. Apparently he fell in love with her at first sight in the street just a moment ago.
“A flash marriage!
Sfx: papapapan papapapan
“But it’s true that looking at that girl makes your heart flutter~
“Oh… // oooh…
Sfx: twitch twitch
“My beloved bride…!
 How did it turn out like this…?
 Since when…
 Since when did it turn out so strangely, I wonder…?
Sfx: chatter chatter
“Here, sorry for the wait.
“We have a flying carpet tour that flies once around the capital city.
“How about doing some sightseeing?
“Woah… // As expected of da city… (Note: she speaks some kind of Hokkaido dialect or something, which is shown through a certain degree of Hagrid-speak.)
“There’s so much magic…!!!
 Emma (16) A girl arriving in the capital
 …I’m gonna begin my new life in this town…!!
 I’ve already… // I’ve already left ‘that place’…!
“Hey, miss… How about having some tea in the Sky Garden?
“Umm, someone’s callin’ ya.
“Ah ha ha ha!
“That’s a doll. // I’m talking to you, miss! I’m inviting you!!
“Woah!!? (Note: she actually says hoeee, a very cutesy way of speaking, just watch CCS.)
“Y-y-y // Ya callin’ me!?
“I-i-i-i-it’s unthinkable for da likes of me ta have tea with you!!! // I…I’m a country bumpkin who just arrived at da capital…
“I-i-i … If ya gonna invite someone fer tea, there are plenty of people prettier than I am…
“No, I’m fine with you!
“It’s mysterious… // I can’t take my eyes off you. // Looking at you makes my heart flutter…
“Hey wait!!! // I saw that girl first!!!
“What the hell are you talking about, your bastard!!? It was me!!
“No, it’s me!!!
Sfx: chatter chatter chatter
“Please go out with me!!!
 Could this be what it means ta be popular…!?
 In da countryside, I was well-liked by frogs and crows, but… // Does that mean I have a face that’s appealin’ ta those in da city…?
 And thus
“Well then, the kiss of oath…
Sfx: pant pant
“Nooo…! Stop it…!!!
“…I found her… // but
“This somehow became really terrible…
“Hmph… This girl…
“It’s been 10 years since, correct?
“Do you think she remembers you, Shion?
“Doesn’t matter to me.
“P…p…Please let go of me…
“Being married is unthinkable ta me.
“Since yer a king, there must be countless of more beautiful women ya could marry… why did ya choose someone like me…?
“Fufu… I don’t know why, either…
“But… // for some reason, I was charmed by you…!!!
Sfx: pant pant
“I can’t help but feel my heart flutter!!!
Sfx: ba-thump ba-thump
“…!!! // King… Please wait!!! Could that girl possibly be…?
“…? // Wha…what’s this noise…
“Wha…what the hell is this!!? // A dragon!!?
“King!!! // Are you okay!!?
“Ah… // woah…
“Get the troops ready for battle!
 I’m gonna be eaten…!!! !!!
Sfx: bares teeth
“I came for you.
“Quit making it hard for me.
“From its mouth… a person appeared from its mouth…
“Ehwah!!? // Hey! What… Nooooooo!!!
“What!? // Hey, she got eaten, you know!!?
“It’s a kidnapping!!!
“The King’s bride got abducted!!!
“It’s a bride kidnapping! (Note: also read ‘marriage by abduction’.)
“It’s a day dragon!
“What in the world was… I thinking…
“Eh…? // King…
“What do you mean…?
“…Why did I ask for that country bumpkin’s hand in marriage…!?
“What in the world overcame me…!!?
“You were captivated by that girl’s ‘magical power’…
“Magical power… you say!?
“You must have known, King… // about the Ekidona…!!
“The tale of the Ekidona has been told all over the world, and it is true…!!!
“Once every 500 years… // a girl will be born with a crystal of this world’s magic residing in her heart.
“She is called the ‘Ekidona’.
“An Ekidona’s magical power takes 16 years to develop…
“At age 16, // when the matured magical power bursts from her heart and is released, // you will be able to obtain
“An overwhelming power…
“Capable of destroying this world…!!!
 Why… How did it come ta this… // Just when I’d just arrived in da city… and started the life I’d always dreamed of… yet… yet…
 Ta think that I’d go ta heaven just ’cause I got bitten by a dragon…
Sfx: flow flow…
 … // …Eh?
“Oh my god…!!?
“This…this is amazin’…!! There’s a house inside da dragon!!
Sfx: wow wow
“…Not really, something like this is normal.
“Eh? // Wawawawa // Wha wha wha what?
“Since it was all fluttery, and moving in it would be a hindrance.
Sfx: turn turn turn
“Umm… // Thank ya very much! Thank ya very much!!!
Sfx: bow bow bow
“Thanks fer allowing me ta wear such nice clothes…
“Da…da cat talked… // I saw it in a book… If I’m not wrong, this is also due ta magic…
Sfx: ba-thump ba-thump ba-thump ba-thump
“I’m not sure who ya are but… // Ya helped me out…!!! Thank ya very much!
“My name is Emma.
“Umm, ya name is…?
 At that moment,
 For some reason, it seemed as if he had a somewhat sad expression on his face.
Sfx: blub blub blub
Sfx: glug glug glug
“Slurp slurp slurp…
“Want a drink? It’ll calm you down.
“…Umm… I think I’ll pass…
“Or would you prefer this?
“My name is Shion…
“I think you already know, but…
“I’m a magician.
“Even if he says he’s a magician, he’s not just any magician…
“Shion is one of the ‘Three Sages of the West’,
“Said to be the strongest magicians in Eagleas!
“It’s…it’s not really such a big deal. // They just started calling me that on their own…
“…She’s completely not listening.
Sfx: chomp chomp
ST: Haaaa… So delicious…
“I don’t have any money, // so I’ve been drinkin’ only water for many days since comin’ here… umm…
“Um…umm… Still, what was that about…?
“Why did da King and everyone in town act like that ta someone like me…?
“Is it ’cause country bumpkins are popular in the city…?
“… // That’s because…
“You’re an ‘Ekidona’.
“…I’ll tell you…
“About what exactly you are.
“There’s magical power… strong enough ta destroy da world… // in my heart…!?
“I’m an Ekidona born every 500 years, ya say…!!?
Sfx: glow glow
“In accordance to the told legends… the crystal’s abnormal response,
“The phenomenon of having people captivated by the magical power hidden in their hearts…
“And lastly, it’s said that they have a heart-shaped birthmark on their chest… well?
“… // ‘I can’t believe that’.
“…What I’d really love ta say… but…
“The truth is,
“I was held captive.
 In da forest… I was surrounded by thorns…
 An armored man always guarded me… and brought me my food.
 He was also da one who taught me how ta read. No one else was there…
 That was ever since I knew what was going on… // I don’t know if I had parents, or where they were…
 Ever since then…
 One day, I want ta go out into da world
 I have never seen before, beyond the thorns…
“That was… // my dream.
“Da other day… My wish was finally granted…!!!
“…When I awoke in da mornin’, the thorns had burned and crumbled. // Da armoured man was nowhere ta be seen…
“I didn’t know why… but I felt that this was my only chance, and I dashed out…!!!
“I’m sure that I was shut in that place ‘cause I was an Ekidona…
“Till the day I turned 16…!!!
“…What should I do… // from now on…?
“Run, // or hide.
“An Ekidona… // A power strong enough to destroy the world…
“Haha… // hahaha…
“If I obtain that… I could become the ruler of this world!!!
“Find that girl at once!!! // Bring her back!!!
“I won’t hand her… I won’t hand her over to anyone!!!
 Eventually, rumours of you will spread across the world…!!! // When that happens, there will be countless magicians and armies who will be targeting you…
 To gouge out your heart…!!!
“I don’t want that ta happen…!!!
“Just when… just when I’d finally gained freedom… // I have so many things I want ta do…
“…Want to wager on it?
“You could become normal…
“There’s a ritual for it…!
 Magic is
 A power which intervenes and controls the world’s laws pertaining to all things in nature, // making the impossible possible.
 To obtain that power, // a ‘ritual’ has to be carried out.
 If one wants to control fire, a stake-burning ritual is performed. // If one desires to serve food based on his will, a fasting ritual is performed!
 A ritual is a ‘compiler’ // which was produced to allow people to obtain the power of the world!!!
“While there are people who desire the Ekidona’s power, there are also people who fear it…
“According to the archives, people all over the world who fear power struggles and massacres // have researched a ritual to seal the Ekidona…
“And have perfected that ‘certain ritual’…!!!
“The multitude of rituals required makes it very difficult.
“It wasn’t recorded if it ever succeeded…
“…Please tell me… // about that ritual…!!!
“Ta change my destiny…!!!
“…I guess we’ll try struggling, then…
“Y…yes!! I’ll da anythin’!!!
“You’re getting married.
“That’s a radish.
“Yah… Wait… Eh… Wha…
Sfx: flail flail
Sfx: clatter clatter
“L…let me tell you that this is different from that wedding you had with that perverted King just now!!!
“A marriage to perform a multitude of marriage rituals!!! // It’s a ritual to strengthen and connect two souls to seal the Ekidona’s power!!!
Sfx: bite bite…
“B…but I haven’t even gone out with a boy…
“And besides… Why would ya go so far fer me, Shion-san…
“I don’t have anythin' ta da with ya, but // ya helped me… and yer even willin’ ta marry someone like me…
“You helped me in the past.
“Well, besides, I’m the only amazing person // who could help you through that amazing ritual.
“I’m a super good person, and due to my integrity, I’m returning the favour many fold.
“I’m sorry… I don’t remember…
“What in the world… did I do…?
“You gave me // bread.
 He…he’d go so far just ’cause he received some bread…!?!?
 I mean, marriage…!!! // What should I da… marriage… ma… bread… age… bread…
“…She doesn’t remember. // Were her memories erased?
“Did you hear? // Apparently someone got abandoned at Corpse Mountain again.
“They said that this time, he’s a child.
“How many people does that make… // It makes me sick. I don’t ever want to get close to that place…!!
Sfx: caw caw
“I’m no longer needed.
“Well, // it can’t be helped…
“It can’t be helped…
Sfx: sway sway
“For the time being, I need to find food… // food…
 …I’m hungry…
“Excuse me…? // Excuse meee?
“Do you want ta have // some bread…?
Sfx: grumble gurgle rumble growl
“It’s been makin’ really loud noises since a while ago.
“I’m a little weird…
“This is the first time I’ve met someone… Is everyone like this too?
Sfx: ba-thump ba-thump ba-thump
“… // N…not really…
“Wawah! // Shh!
“The guard will notice. // He’s sleepin’ right now.
“I’m held captive, // ya know.
“Here, bread! Hurry!
Sfx: creak creak creak
Sfx: stab stab
“W…what’s this!? // Hey!!! Stop it!!!
“You don’t have to, for something like bread!!! // Hey… your hand… // There’s blood!!!
Sfx: stab stab stab
“That's cause ya'll were cryin'... // while lyin' on da ground.
“Eat this bread and cheer up.
“…But it’s lonely, isn’t it? To help your first love, // you worked hard to become a magician…
“And took 5 whole years to study ‘Magico’…!
“Wha… She’s not my first love, idiot!!!
“It’s convenient that she doesn’t have memories of me. Hmph!!!
ST: Ah, yes, yes.
“…As if I could say that I remember… // It’s embarrassing…
 Da thorns are coming…
 No… // …Da King?
 A marriage.
 That’s right.
 But can it be done?
 What happens if it can’t be done?
 I’m scared…
 There’s something
 Within me.
 The truth is
 Why me?
“This is bad…!!! // The instability of her mind and body caused the Ekidona’s power to run out of control!!!
“At this rate, she’ll…
“Emma!!! // Put on this ring!!!
“It’s the first ritual!!! The wedding ring will suppress the magical power!!! // Hurry!!!
 The power leaking out of her is this powerful…!!!
 It’s a good match for my broom magic… // no, even beyond that…
Sfx: rustle rustle rustle
Sfx: drip drip drip…
“Stop… it… // Shion…san…
“…I was such an idiot… // I had such stupid hopes…!!! // I’m… sorry…
“I’m… sorry… // I caused ya so much trouble… Ya don’t have ta bother… with someone like me…
“Stop talking nonsense.
“I’ll get angry,
 It doesn’t matter if you don’t remember.
 At that time… you were the one crying, weren’t you?
 At that time, I decided…
 That I’d make you
 The happiest woman on earth!!!
“Don’t give up!!!
 I’ve always liked you
 Since that time…
“Looks like the ritual worked…
“Umm… are you hurt…?
“Ufufu. // That’s right, you still haven’t proposed.
“There, Shion. Tell her ‘I love you’
“Or ‘You’re beautiful’…
Sfx: giggle giggle
“I’ll work hard. // Fer all those rituals… No matter what happens, I won’t give up.
“Because ya told me not to give up, Shion-san.
“Please take care of me!
 Art thou
“L-l-l-l-leave it to me!!!
“Will you stop that nosebleed already?
 In sickness // or in health…
And thus, the duo’s ritual begins!!
