Chapter 5: Night tales of the Mountain


あっしは手の目だ 色々あって夜の山中で米俵の上に乗っかるハメになったんだが
Tenome: I am the Hand's eye. A lot of things have happened, and now I'm stuck in the mountains in the middle of the night sitting on a bag of rice.
If I were to tell the story, it'd be pretty long, so please don't ask why.
Although you look like you have a story too, young master.
It's okay if you don't say anything.

Tenome: I can see right through you anyway.
You were walking around in the mountains and now you must be tired.
Come sit by the fire.
That's right.
There's good.
THEY've already come...

Tenome: They're children who were abandoned on this mountain long ago to reduce the number of mouths to feed in their village.

That's all in the past, but it was really only a few years ago.

No, I suppose even now, if a village is poor enough they still expose children and old women.

Tenome: Here!
こいつら飢えて死んだから 生米をやると喜んで食うのさ
They died starving, so if you give them even uncooked rice, they'll gladly eat it.
怖がるな 何も悪さはしねえよ。
Don't be scared. They won't do anything bad.
Hey, you kids!
さっきもいったろう 物をもらったら礼をしな
You were here earlier, right? When you get something, you ought to say thanks!

Tenome: Show the young master your performance too!

Tenome: Haha, that's right. Very good!

ん? ああ。。。この若旦那かい?
Tenome: Hm? Ah... This young gentleman?
このお人はな 心中の片割れ死にそびれさ
That honorable young man botched his attempt to die in a lover's suicide.

おまえら海何ぞ 見たこともねえだろうによくできたじゃねえか
Tenome: Oh, you guys, it's the ocean! You did a good job for never having seen it.
The dragon is handsomely done too.
どうした若旦那 餓鬼どものせっかくの余興だ拍車のひとつもしてやんな
What's wrong, young master? These brats have worked really hard at this show. At least give a little applause.
親に反対結婚 ふたりあのよで果たそうと愛しい人と道行き心中
The marriage that your parents refused... you two thought you could succeed in the other world. You would elope with your beloved in a double suicide.

”美しく死のうね” ”はいあなた”
"Let us die in beauty" "Yes, my darling"

Tenome: Out of idle curiousity, you pressed into the heart of the mountains.
The two of you, happy together, jumped off a cliff, and that was that, but...
運がいいのか悪いのか 若旦那だけが生き残り
For better or for worse, the young master alone was left alive.

Tenome: His beloved was in a terrible state.
Finally coming to your senses after a hundred years of love, you fled.
You wandered in the mountains

Tenome: And after a long struggle, you finally made it to this performance.
So, kids, why don't you try something that better suits the young master's mood?
Hey, guys!

Tenome: What kind of shape are you making?
Don't play sick jokes!

Wakadanna: WAH! WAAAAAAHH!!!

わあ! わあ! わあああ!!
Wakadanna: WAAAAAAAAH!!

Tenome: Hey, wait up, young master!
That's not the real thing!
It's just the kids' practical joke.
There's nothing to be afraid of!

Wakadanna: Wah!

Tenome: Aww...
It was just the illusion of a woman. Even though there was nothing to fear...
I guess he was afraid of women when he was alive.
ああ もう夜も明けやがる
Aah, the night's already getting a little brighter.
