終わりを知るサヴァン || The Savant Who Knows the End

Shinra終わりを知るサヴァン
owari wo shiru savan
The Savant Who Knows the End

Vocals: Mie (みぃ)
Lyrics: Azuki + Kaztora
Musical (‘screenplay’?) author: Joyful (ジョイフル)
Arranged by: Kaztora (カズトラ)
Album: On That Day, I Looked Up at the Sky (その日私は空を見上げた)
Circle: Shinra-Bansho (森羅万象)
Event: Reitaisai 12 (RTS12)

Yes, it’s only two lines. But it’s the introduction, so it deserves its own page! Shinra-Bansho delivers once again, providing us with a new musical, in line with their second and fourth albums. The star this time is Nitori, and over the next few weeks, we’ll be following her on her journey. What adventures, and what surprises await our brave kappa?

About the title: The version I went with is the version presented on the official website. The lyrics booklet goes with the (slightly plainer) “終わりを知る者” (‘owari wo shiru mono’ – The One Who Knows the End). Also, as I go through the musical, I might go back and change some things. Just putting that out there.

I spend my days telling this tale, for eternity.
It is the tale of a youkai, who continued to love humans and fantasies. (1)

(1) The word 幻想 (gensou – ‘fantasy’) reappears several times throughout the musical. It is most likely a reference to Gensokyo (幻想郷)

    Oh boy! Thanks a bunch for translating this new musical!

    I really wanna know what happens in the end. This got really dark at times.
