始まりを綴るサヴァン || The Savant Who Writes the Beginning

Shinra始まりを綴るサヴァン
hajimari wo tsudzuru savan
The Savant Who Writes the Beginning

Vocals: Mie (みぃ), Chippo (ちっぽ)
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)

And so, our narrator closes the book, and looks up at the sky, feeling nostalgia she had not felt in a long time. Where is Nitori now? And what is she doing?

This actually raises an important question – who is the narrator? According to a supplementary image provided with the CD, Akyuu is meant to feature somewhere, so I assumed that she was the narrator. Even though Mie voices Marisa as well, her ‘narration’ voice is different to her ‘Marisa’ voice, which lends further weight to this theory. The co-narrator is (probably) Sanae, since Chippo voices Sanae.

(Also, like the first part, this part is called ‘The One Who Writes the Beginning’ [始まりを綴る者 – ‘hajimari wo tsudzuru mono’] in the booklet.)

Key: Akyuu, Co-Narrator, Both

And like that, the world was covered in darkness. Whilst all were bewildered,
That girl only believed in tomorrow. She sowed the seeds of flowers.

If the Second Sun that engulfed the world
Had not been born…
Even if she had not created it, mankind would have someday
Ended up struggling towards this future.

It was not chance. It was not inevitable.
Rather, it was only that girl, who just believed in the world…

I wonder, where is she now, and what she is doing?
Still, one thing is for certain: flowers are blooming throughout the world!

The land, as it bursts into leaf, is endless, and distant…
The babbling riverside has become clear.
The world spread out before us, as it was in the days of yore,
In a form that everyone would know.
What are you looking at now? [Smiles suit her so well.]
You are tormented by your sins. [This world is a little unkind…]
“The world and this fantasy are okay.” [Is your heart already okay?]
Because I want you, too, to know this… [I want you to tell me, as well.]
Because I want only you to know this,
I will keep telling this tale, forever…

    Hi! I was wondering what is up with the buzzing and noise at the end or beginning of certain tracks in this musical. Do they signify anything?

      Hello! The buzzing noise… I personally think it signifies the end of a ‘scene.’ If it was a real musical, it would signify the points where the curtain would be lowered, and the actors would shuffle around backstage, moving props around and stuff like that. It’s like… ‘incidental music,’ to borrow a music theatre term!

      That’s one interpretation. It could also signify a projector or something like that creaking and making noises as the sound and images are being projected. Or maybe I’m just overthinking it all >_<
