争いの系譜 “Jihad of Iberia” ~Sound Horizon~

Well, I did the post on Märchen, and my awsomely cute and cool friend said that she wanted me to do more ^.^ (See what some sucking up can make me call you? If you want some too, please comment XD)

I don’t have time for Roman yet, but I have time for the single that got me interested in Sound Horizon, since Ike speaks english in the middle there, I got some of the story, and I liked what I heard.

So, first thing I did was find a translation, and I loved it more!!! Wah! It is such a beautiful and yet simple story. I love it! (But hey, I love everything where the demon is not the bad guy but humanity sucks XD)

The Genealogy of the Conflict

The world of humans is always in conflict, and it seems to never end. Layla is born from parents with mixed religion, and when a war broke out between the two, her parents were either killed or killed each other. She were able to flee from the war, but fell down into a old cave when she was hit by a stray arrow.

In the cave she meets a demon that has been sealed there for centuries, but she shows no fear, and as she takes his hand, he asks her if she is ready for eternity together with him. (<3 I love good love stories XD)

Then she says something about suicide being a sin for humans, and I don’t know if that is meant with casting her human life away and becoming a demon, or if it refers to the end.

The Scarlet Demon on the Cobblestone Road

It seems Layla and Shaytan watches as time goes by, in hope for the war to end, but it just keeps going, and Shaytan watches as Layla starts to feel more and more powerless. Then he woves to protect her, as she had been the one to release him from his prison, and it was her light that made him remember his own name again.

He tells her that he will destroy that which she hates, if it is one of the two sides of the war, or the war itself.

The Invading and the Invaded

As the wars continue Layla finally finds the answer for her question. Who should the powerless hate? She could not hate any sides, since her parents were from each their. So to unite the humans, a unhuman enemy must make its apperance.

Shaytan and Layla become the true evil of the world, and the humans unite to fight them. And as the demons either leaves or are defeated, there seems to be peace in the land.

T.T I hope they didn’t die!!

I put videos with pictures here, but the second song has a music video, and if you have time, you should check out the live for this, I’ll set the link to them on the song names ^.^. If Sound Horizon songs are great on the album, they are a hundred times more on the concerts!! And I just found the concert translated too! XD Check it out!

Well, I will try and do Roman next XD Believe me, that thing is a mind fuck XD

  1. Really, I LOVE YOU FOR THAT. I really really like Sound Horizon, but it’s sometimes so hard to understand the true meaning/story of their songs, especially if there are links between the different albums… Plus I’m not very good in English, so it’s hard for me to understand the awesome and beautiful and sometimes not very easy lyrics…
    Your guides are helping me a lot! It would be so wonderful if you could do that with 2nd Chronicle, Elysion and Moira, too :’D

    But thank you very very much for your hard work! (And sorry for my bad English)

    • Thank you for the praise ^.^ The reason I did these Sound Horizon analyzations were more for my friend that I wanted to fool into checking out more of them. But it is always fun to find out that more people also get something out of it ^-^!
      I would really want to do the others too, but the problem is that I don’t really have the same relationship to the old ones and Moira. I might go more into it one day, but I have to figure out all about it myself first. I love a lot of the old songs, like Stardust and Ark, and I also love a lot of the songs in Moira, so I might look more into it one day. But before that I more imagine I will do the yami to hikari no douwa single and the single before Roman.
      (And there was no problem with your english =))
