TRACK 1 – Paralysis in the Medical Room

 

 

Hey, you can’t tell anybody about one of the Seven Mysteries that has been rumoured about lately. About people being paralysed in the medical room.

You suddenly can’t move your body when you’re resting in the medical room.

And then… you can hear something approaching you.

All students that were paralysed say, shaking with fear, that they don’t remember anything.

 

[0:58]

They should have encountered something terrifying, but they don’t remember anything.

All they can do is relive the terrible fear that has been imprinted on their skin.

That’s how the story usually goes, but I’ve heard a strange rumour recently.

Apparently, there’s a huge underground cave beneath Nanagiri School.

They say that once you’re paralysed, something takes you away to that underground cave and you’ll never be able to get out again.

 

[1:49]

If that’s true, you should watch out too.

I mean, such an adorable girl like you might be kidnapped anytime.

Maybe I should devour you before someone takes you away from me.

 

[2:25]

Hahaha.

You’re so red, you’re not even scared. I’m really going to eat you at this rate.

Haha. I’m joking.

Even if I’m at your home, I won’t do anything rude.

My girlfriend is so cute. There, there.

Don’t worry. There’s a strange rumour going around, but there’s no underground cave beneath the school.

As you know, I’m the one who was paralysing humans and scaring them.

 

[3:13]

I’m also the one who got rid of their memories to get rid of any proof.

The gentle and calm Iriya senpai’s true identity is a Eight-Forked Serpent that lives in the medical room.

Well, you’re the only one who knows this, so it can’t be helped that these rumours become exaggerated.

I won’t attack humans and take them away.

Do you feel relieved?

Ah, but you should still be careful. Rumours sometimes become true.

 

[3:59]

I haven’t seen my yokai friend who lives in the toilet for a while, and there’s this strange atmosphere in the school.

I won’t be surprised if something strange happens.

Hm? Are you worried?

I see. Then… I’ll cheer you up.

 

[4:35]

Don’t worry. It’s just paralysis.

Now you won’t be able to move.

I’ll fill all your sensations… so that you won’t be worried anymore.

I’ve possessed you.

This way, my touch will feel more direct, right?

 

[5:07]

Hey… what do you want me to do?

Should I start by using these snakes?

You can feel it all you want, because they’re my hair transformed into snakes.

Do you want them to snake up your arms… or lightly lick your neck?

If you can’t choose, I’ll start by stroking your whole body gently.

I’m sure you can feel… every single scale.

 

[5:57]

It must be unbearable to not be able to move even one finger.

Should I keep going… until you melt?

Hey, don’t try to escape.

I need to punish bad girls who try to resist me.

 

[6:23]

Which part of your neck has the thinnest skin?

Here…

Should I try biting it?

It’ll hurt only for a moment. After that you’ll just become more and more sensitive.

What should I do with you… once my poison starts working on you?

 

[6:51]

Haha. Stay still.

I’m kidding! Did I scare you?

There you go. You can move now. Hehe.

Your eyes have teared up.

I went over the top. I’m sorry.

You’re just too innocent.

Hey, do you remember how we first met in the medical room?

 

[7:40]

Back then, your reactions were so cute, that I had to possess you.

You were so scared you were almost crying. You were so cute.

At first, I only saw you as something to kill time.

After all, I had lived for too long and was bored of everything.

But you were interesting beyond my expectations.

You used your wish for someone else, and you were so friendly to me.

 

[8:20]

It didn’t take time for me to be attracted to you.

Every time I trap you in my arms and touch you, I realise that I love you more everyday. It almost scares me.

 

[8:46]

I love you too. I love you so much.

So much that I want to devour you…

Sorry. It’s nothing.

More importantly, we’re done talking about the old times for now. Didn’t you tell me you got a new CD?

I want to listen to it with you.

Yea, let’s take this opportunity to stay up till late.

Haha.

That feeling just now, don’t tell me….

 

 

TRACK 2 – Would You Like Some Cold Snakes?

 

 

Welcome to the medical room. You came.

Are you okay?

You dropped it.

Is it okay?

This appearance?

It’s quite hot today, so it was a struggle to stay in my human form.

That’s why I returned to my yokai form, even though it’s still in the afternoon.

Don’t worry. I’ve made sure people won’t come here, so there won’t be any students coming.

 

[0:43]

You should come in.

That bag… is that some food for me?

You got me donuts! That’s exactly what I wanted!

I wanted to get some, but it’s too hot outside. I wasn’t able to go outside, so I’m really happy to have these.

But… I would be even happier if you got me coke too.

You can’t?

[1:29]

I’m sorry… that coke made me drunk last time, but this time I’ll be fine. I promise to drink carefully.

I definitely can’t? Fine… then…

See? You like it when I’m in this form, right?

 

[2:01]

I’ll do you a favour, so please reconsider!

I’ll wrap around your neck.

A snake’s scales can feel nice once you get used to it.

I should feel nice and cool, because of the air-conditioner, too.

Am I tickling you? You’re so weak at the neck.

I’m not bullying you. I just want you to be happy.

Now… where should I lick?

Hey… I’ll continue to do this until you agree to buy me coke. What do you say?

You’re so stubborn.

 

[3:00]

Then… how about I try a different method?

Don’t be so stiff. I won’t do anything scary to you.

I’ll just hug you.

Your skin is hot. Don’t I feel cool and nice?

Should I entangle my snakes around your body?

 

[3:43]

I’ll comfort your hot skin… on your arms… legs… your whole body.

You must feel so relaxed when you’re embraced like this.

You also like it when I stroke your head, right?

Good girl…

What do you think?

I’m such a dedicated boyfriend. Don’t you want to pamper me a bit?

 

[4:21]

So please… grant my request. Please?

Hehe. Thank you.

I’m so happy I have such a kind girlfriend.

Do you think so?

Nobody’s told me that I’m childish before.

Maybe I’m just excited because you came to visit me.

 

[5:03]

I wanted to come see you, but it’s so hot that I didn’t even feel like going out from this air-conditioned room.

It’s a bit weird for a yokai to be weakened by heat, but it can’t be helped.

True, maybe I’d feel a bit cooler if I tie my hair up.

Huh?

Are you sure?

I can have this pretty hair tie?

 

[5:46]

I see. Thank you. I’ll treasure it.

Of course I’m happy.

It’s something special for us yokais.

As you know, yokais are born from people’s thoughts.

Unless people think about us, we can’t exist.

A gift is like a symbol of acceptance.

 

[6:25]

Hey, since this is special…can you tie my hair for me?

Thanks.

My hair can turn into snakes, so it might be a little difficult.

The snakes can do mischievous… things like this…

Sorry. I just feel a little shy because I’ve never had a human touch my hair like this.

 

[7:11]

Isn’t that obvious? Do you think any human would want to approach a scary snake yokai?

That’s right… But you’re special.

You’re a precious person who I met after many centuries.

That’s why I find you so adorable…

So adorable… that its getting hard for me to control myself.

 

[7:48]

No, it’s nothing!

Thank you.

How does it look on me?

What’s wrong?

I’m fine. The heat’s just getting to me.

That’s right! Why don’t you come at night this time?

I’d be more energetic if it’s cooler.

I’ll be looking forward to it!

Oh, and don’t forget the coke. It’s a promise.

 

[8:36]

Huh? I see some bags…

Could it be…?

I knew it! She came to see me.

She’s sleeping…

I must’ve made her wait.

Hehe. She’s hugging some snacks and… coke?

 

[9:06]

She really bought it for me.

Sorry I’m late.

Did you get tired from waiting?

I’m so close to her, but she wont’ wake up at all.

Are you aware that I’m a terrifying yokai?

 

[9:36]

Well, you’re probably so defenceless because you’re not aware.

And it should stay that way. I can’t let you know, so that we can always be together.

She’s sleeping so well. What a cute sleeping face she has.

It’ll be easy… if I do it now…

 

[10:14]

I would be able to eat her so easily…

I can’t…!

This is…. bad…!

 

 

TRACK 3 – His True Self Revealed

 

 

You woke up?

It would’ve been better if you hadn’t.

It’s too dark for human eyes to see, right?

Don’t worry. The things you were holding onto so preciously… are over there.

They’re meaningless now.

We’re under the school, inside the underground cave that is being rumoured about.

 

[0:53]

An underground cave seems impossible, but rumours sometimes become true.

There’s no need to panic.

I’m the one who brought you here.

The other yokais would have noticed if we stayed in the medical room for too long.

Here, I can take my time… to taste you.

Hahahahaha!

 

[1:37]

You look so scared. That’s the correct reaction, but it’s too late.

Stay still, and be devoured by me.

This isn’t a joke.

First, I’ll make sure you can’t move.

After that, I’ll take my time to taste you.

Your arms… legs…. neck… innards…

 

[2:22]

I’ll devour everything.

Hahaha.

You finally realised that I’m serious, but you won’t be able to escape.

There’s no point resisting.

The more you resist, the more tightly the snakes will wrap around you.

Or do you want me to squeeze you tightly?

 

[3:00]

My scales sliding on your skin, and my breath on your neck…

You won’t be able to hold yourself in.

Your breathing… is becoming rapid…

Your collar bone is your weak spot, right?

Every time a snake slithers on top of it, you react so well. How adorable.

 

[3:33]

I’ll pour my poison into you.

I’ll sink my fangs into your neck, and your body will be attacked with sweet numbness.

Don’t worry, you won’t die.

I want to torture you slowly.

I want to torture you… until you can’t move and you’re melting all over.

And then I’ll slowly swallow you.

I’ll start then…

 

[4:27]

Hahaha. How is it?

Are you feeling warmer?

After a while, you won’t be able to move.

Where do you plan to go?

You should give up.

You can look through your things, but there aren’t any weapons in there.

 

[5:07]

Should I bite again?

Hm? That’s…?

This taste…. it’s coke?

I feel dizzy…

 

[5:45]

It’s not bad…

I like this feeling…

Huh?

What are you saying…?

Return back to normal?

But I am who I am.

I’m always like this. I just can’t help wanting to eat you.

Hahahaha!

 

[6:24]

Hey, where are you going?

Don’t leave me…

You belong here… Caught you!

If you insist on escaping, I’ll possess you and teach you a lesson, so that you’ll know that you won’t be able to escape.

What a bad girl.

You tried to defeat me with coke.

 

[7:13]

I should… give you some special service.

I’ll use my snakes to… caress your whole body.

Every part of your body is so soft and warm… it feels great to wrap around you.

Hm? Where is your weak spot?

Well, I already know even if you don’t tell me.

It’s over here, right?

 

[8:03]

A snake’s tongue is long and narrow, so it’s very convenient…

I can tease you all i want.

I may as well… tease your whole body.

There… your legs… arms… and neck… are all wrapped in me.

What do you think will happen to you, if I lick you all at once?

 

[8:44]

Your body’s already extra sensitive because of my poison.

I wonder if you’ll be able to endure this.

No, I won’t stop.

You’re…. feeling it too, right?

The areas of my body… which are touching you… feel nice… and warm.

 

[9:24]

I love you. I love you. I love you so much.

So please… be devoured by me.

Hahahaha.

How did it feel for your whole body to be teased?

Huh? Did she lose consciousness?

Oh, she fell asleep.

 

[10:10]

That’s fine. I don’t want you to feel pain, so stay asleep.

But… I’m… also at my limit…

 

[11:04]

Where am… I?

I feel like I’ve been sleeping for a very long time.

Hm?

Huh? You’re…

Yea, I’m fine.

Um… who… are you?

 

 

TRACK 4 – Lost Memories

 

 

I see. Now that you’ve explained everything, I understand what’s going on.

It seems like a part of my memories has gone.

I know what kind of yokai I am, and I have old memories.

I remember being freed and awoken from my seal under the school.

But… I don’t remember anything else.

I don’t remember you either.

Why did this happen…?

Don’t be so upset.

I might return to normal once I get out of here.

 

[0:52]

According to what you’ve told me, this is an underground cave which shouldn’t exist, but still exists under the school, right?

So the rumours have become true and created a space in another dimension.

I don’t know how this cave came into existence, but something strange must be happening.

It must have something to do with my amnesia, too.

I don’t really remember, but…

It might also have affected me when I tried to attack you.

 

[1:39]

That’s right. We should hurry and find the exit, but…

Hey… aren’t you scared of me?

I’m a yokai… as you can see.

And… I attacked you, right?

Are you sure you’re okay being with me?

You’re really fine with it…

I should feel happy, but my heart feels heavy…

 

[2:21]

No, this isn’t the time to be saying these things. We need to get out from here.

Can you walk?

Your eyes are probably quite used to the dark now, but be careful.

The path keeps going straight, no matter how much we walk.

The imagination of humans can’t be underestimated, if it can create an underground cave this big.

 

[3:03]

The air feels heavy. We shouldn’t stay here for long.

What’s wrong? Do you feel cold?

I see, then you’re shaking for a different reason?

I can tell, even if it’s dark. You look pale too.

Well, I’m not surprised you’re scared, given our condition.

Have you ever been possessed by me?

 

[3:44]

I see. Then I don’t need to be polite then.

I’m sorry if I’m heavy.

I thought you’d feel at ease if I hug you from behind.

I don’t dislike your scared face, but since we’re in this situation…

I want to take away your fear.

I’m sorry if I’m making you even more scared.

 

[4:21]

I see. You’re welcome.

Let’s stay this way if it makes you worry less.

I have a feeling… something like this happened before.

There was a cute girl… shaking with fear… and I hugged her.

I enveloped her small body gently… and whispered to her ear that it’d be alright.

 

[4:58]

I was so happy that she’d depend on me like that, and I was filled with an emotion I can’t describe.

No, it’s not like my memories have come back, but the sensations have stayed with me.

It’s a strange feeling. I’m finding the warmth of a human nostalgic, even though I don’t recall ever touching a human like this.

 

[5:45]

Your warmth is so kind. I want to remember, but I don’t know why… I also have this feeling I’m shouldn’t remember.

Wait. In front of us. I can see something.

This is…

Why is this here?

It’s a shrine. It’s small, but it’s for worshipping the snake god.

 

[6:37]

It’s like my yorishiro so I hid it under the school with sorcery.

Maybe the two spaces became connected, when this cave was created.

That’s right. When I was still worshipped as a snake god, this shrine was my home.

That was a long time ago though.

I spent my days listening to people’s wishes and granting them.

 

[7:14]

But… that didn’t last long.

Humans like to exclude things that are different to them.

One day, they started a rumour, saying things like, “The serpent inside the shrine must be a monster. There used to be a monster called Yamata-No-Orochi a long time ago. It must be that.”

Yokais are created from human thoughts, so rumours one day become reality.

I turned from a god to a monster.

 

[8:09]

The humans started offering sacrifices. I came to be called a blood-thirsty monster, and was exorcised.

They sealed me up together with this shrine, and I fell into a long sleep.

By then, I had given up on everything.

I gave up on everything, and didn’t long for anything.

I was sick of selfish humans, and my life, which was so strongly influenced by these humans.

 

[9:01]

Hm?

You’re crying?

Even your tears are warm. You’re a kind girl.

There’s no need to cry for me, and yet…

I wonder why… I have a feeling… I had these emotions before too.

 

[9:44]

I think there was a time… I wished for you not to be sad.

My head….

That’s right.

I remember now, even though I shouldn’t have!

 

[10:34]

You shouldn’t stay…. near me!

Run away from… me!

I didn’t lose my memories…. I sealed them, with my own sorcery.

If I don’t… I’ll…

 

[11:08]

Don’t… come here.

The Seven Mysteries isn’t causing this…

It’s my fault… I lost it…

I was sealed up as a monster, and slept deep inside the earth for many years.

 

[11:40]

I was bored of everything, and I gave up on everything.

But… when they built this school, they dug up the ground, and I woke up.

After I woke up, I intended to disappear in this school eventually, while I killed time somehow.

But… I came here, and you appeared before me.

 

[12:22]

It was my first time… wanting something so badly.

I want all of you.

I want to make you belong only to me.

As my feelings grew stronger, I…!

… Started to want to devour you.

This is my true self.

 

[13:03]

I don’t think I can hold myself in anymore.

Be devoured by me, my adorable sacrifice.

 

 

TRACK 5 – The One Thing That Can Be Erased

 

 

Yamata-No-Orochi is a terrifying yokai that eats young women.

That’s what the humans started to say, and I started to deform.

I just hadn’t realised until now, because I never wanted something so badly from the bottom of my heart.

I never knew that I would want to taste and devour something I love and adore.

I took you underground on my own will.

 

[0:57]

I brought you here so I could taste you without anyone getting in my way.

That’s right… I’m the one who created this underground cave.

I made it with sorcery, after I got the idea from the humans’ rumours.

So no matter how much you struggle, you won’t be able to get out of here.

That is… unless you defeat me.

Just now, I became drunk from the getting covered in coke, right?

 

[1:41]

When I was sober again, I realised that I won’t be able to endure it anymore.

That’s why I sealed up my memories of you, while you were asleep.

It was my miscalculation that I regained my memories.

There’s nothing we can do about it now.

Feel my scales… crawling up your skin.

 

[2:33]

You’ve tasted this many times before, right?

There’s no way you could stay conscious… with my snakes doing as they like to your body.

I’ll swallow you up once your’e unconscious.

Let’s see…. how long will you endure this for?

Hmm…seeing how long your stubbornness will last for will be interesting.

 

[3:20]

If you move even a bit, all the snakes around your body will bite you.

If they release their poison into your body at once, what would happen to you?

Hahahaha. You can’t move… even when I trace your spine… like this.

It’s unexpected that cornering my prey like this is so fun.

 

[4:00]

I want to drag this on for longer… but I want to devour you so badly… I don’t think I can hold myself in anymore…

It’s my first time… feeling such a strong hunger.

I’ve never felt this desire… no matter what kind of sacrifice they offered to me.

Even when the humans offered young women to me, I didn’t have any desire to devour them.

 

[4:35]

I would let them escape to another land, without the humans finding out.

But… you’re different.

I can’t help… wanting to make you mine.

 

[4:59]

Do you feel… my fangs touching your neck?

I’ll pour my poison into your body… slowly… from your neck.

I won’t be… soft on you.

No matter how much you struggle, there’s no way a human can be stronger than a yokai.

See… the poison is spreading through your body. You should give up… and let it take control.

One more time…

Hahaha

 

[6:07]

You can’t bear it any longer, right?

There’s no need to resist it…

You should just let it make you… fall asleep.

She finally became unconscious.

 

[6:39]

Poor girl.

This is the result… of being loved by a yokai.

But… I wonder which one of us is the pitiful one.

Me, who has become a monster because of the humans, and has no choice other than to devour the one he loves. Which one of us is it?

 

[7:23]

I was probably never supposed to fall in love with a human.

And yet… I couldn’t let you go.

I wanted to stay by your side, no matter what.

Why…

How could you be moving?

 

[8:13]

There’s nothing I can do now.

This is my… real self.

I don’t want to lose you, but I can’t help wanting to devour you.

As long as I love you, my desire won’t disappear.

There’s no way we can be together happily.

 

[8:54]

Why…

Why… can you say such things?

You know… what kind of yokai I am.

Why aren’t you scared?

You should cry, scream, and hate me.

Please…

Let go of my arm…

Otherwise… I’ll rip you apart.

 

[9:43]

You’re too… kind. There’s no guarantee that I won’t hurt you.

Why aren’t you even shaking now… when you’re usually so weak?

Hey… even if this is my true self… even if I’m a monster… will you still love me?

 

[10:44]

Thank you.

I’m sorry. I’m so sorry for making you go through this.

I love you. I want to treasure you, because you’re precious to me.

I don’t want to be devoured by my instincts.

I don’t want to hurt you.

 

[11:19]

I’ve come up with one method.

It’s the last method… we can try, in order to protect you.

This shrine is a yorishiro that has been filled with human thoughts of the snake god and yamata-no-orochi.

 

[11:49]

If this is destroyed, I’m sure I will disappear.

No. You have to stay there.

Don’t worry.

The paralysis will go away once I’m gone.

This underground cave, which was made by my sorcery, should also disappear.

When you wake you, you’ll be back in the medical room.

 

[12:32]

I was so happy…

I loved you, because you always smiled beside me.

You made me realise how happy it can be to have someone beside me.

 

[13:03]

Thank you for… the gentle moments.

I’ll end this once and for all!

 

[13:38]

My powers… are leaving me.

They are beautifully… sparkling.

If I can disappear as these bubbles of light, then I guess it’s not bad…

 

[14:10]

I’m sorry. I want to comfort you, but…

See…? I can’t even touch you anymore.

It’s a shame… I wanted to feel your warmth… before I go.

 

[14:50]

Thank you for saying you love me, no matter what kind of yokai I am.

Hey, you can’t tell anybody about one of the Seven Mysteries that has been rumoured about lately. About people being paralysed in the medical room.

The lord of the distorted mystery… has disappeared.

Peace returned to the school, and everyone went back to their ordinary lives.

Even the Seven Mysteries itself will be forgotten eventually.

But no matter how much time passes by, I won’t forget you.

 

 

Track 6 – Call My Name and Beckon Me to You

 

 

Welcome to the medical room. You came.

Are you okay?

You dropped it.

Is it okay?

You even got me coke!

Hm? What’s wrong? You look confused.

Haha. I’m back.

 

[0:40]

It looks like I didn’t need to disappear.

I’m sorry for worrying you.

When I woke up, I was here.

I thought I’d completely disappear, but…

Look at this.

The hair-tie (kami-dome) you gave me. It’s a sign which binds (tomeru) god (kami).

 

[1:22]

When everything seemed to be disappearing, I touched this.

Your voice, smile, and warmth came back to me all at once.

Yokais are born from people’s thoughts, so your feelings for me kept me here. I knew I couldn’t just disappear.

You even came to the medical room with coke, believing that I would come back.

 

[2:07]

Because you called me and beckoned me to you, I could come back from the depths of hell.

Thank you.

I made you cry again.

Come on, show me your face.

 

[2:41]

You’re so warm.

Your crying face is cute, but I want you to smile.

I can be by your side again.

The distorted thoughts of humans disappeared together with the shrine.

So…

See? I can even do this.

 

[3:18]

I won’t be controlled by dark desires anymore.

I can hug you.

I can continue to be with you.

Yes, I promise.

I’ll make up for making you so worried.

 

[3:49]

From now, I won’t need to hold back anymore.

I’ll adore you all I want.

It seems like wanting to tease the girl I love isn’t a yokai’s instinct, but my personality.

I want to adore you, just like I used to.

I held myself in because I didn’t want to overdo it, but there’s no need for that anymore.

Hahaha.

 

[4:32]

But for now, please let me hug you.

I won’t… let you go ever again.

 

 

TRACK 7 – Paralysis in the Medical Room (altered version)

 

 

Hey, you can’t tell anybody about how one of the Seven Mysteries that has been rumoured about lately, continues. The rumour about people getting paralysed in the medical room.

I was just thinking about getting a new CD.

I like the one I’m listening to right now to, but I want a new one now.

When I was worshipped as a snake god, they used to perform kagura music for me.

Maybe it’s because of that, I really like music.

Come to think of it, don’t you think our tastes for music are becoming similar?

Maybe it’s true that two people who are dating become more alike.

 

[1:05]

Hm? Did I surprise you by suddenly whispering to you?

You’re so cute! You make me want to eat you. Hahahaha!

I’m joking. I’m okay now.

But I still think you’re so cute, I want to devour you.

Apparently, if you accidentally oversleep in the medical room until night, you will become paralysed.

They say that both your freedom and memories will be taken away from you.

 

[1:55]

The truth is, I didn’t want to take away your memories.

I just wanted to hide…

Because I thought that you wouldn’t want to be with me if you knew my true self.

But… There’s no need for that anymore.

I’ll show you everything… and love you with my all.

 

[2:32]

I want you to prepare yourself tonight…

I’ll indulge you… until you’ll want to scream.

Let’s melt our hearts, bodies and souls together… so that we won’t be separated, even if we go to the depths of hell.

 

[3:08]

If you nod so innocently like that, I can’t be mean to you.

I won’t ever let you go.

I’ll grant your wish.

Let’s be happy together.

 

 

TRACK 8 – Free Talk

 

 

Hello everyone. I’m Shinnosuke Tachibana, the lover of your ears (omimi-no-koibito).

I’m Shinnosuke, acting as Iriya, and we’re starting the end of episode free-talk for Yuugen Romantica Uchouten.

So, what I thought of the recording!

Well… let’s see…

How should I put it?

I think Iriya is on the frivolous side, but the story was unexpectedly moving!

What? You haven’t listened to the story yet?

Are you an idiot? Stop the CD immediately! Listen to this part later! There are going to be many spoilers!

Well, not really, but anyway… it was a very good story, so those who are listening to this first, please stop the CD and listen to the story!

And then listen to this free-talk afterwards, still teary-eyed.

Oh, that was almost a spoiler! Hahaha.

It was a very well-balanced story.

When I reading the script at home, I was like, “So they’re going to try to make us cry here?”

 

[1:18]

When I was at home, I practised many ways so that the story would be more moving.

Please listen to it many times if you enjoyed it.

Anyway…

Are there any moments where you suddenly change character?

Nope! Haha…

Iriya will possess you for a day. What would you do?

I refuse his offer! I’ve never once wanted to be possessed by Iriya.

 

[1:40]

Although I’m the one acting him out. Hahaha.

I mean, if I were a girl, maybe it would be nice, but… there’s no story about Iriya possessing a man, right?

I can’t imagine that happening at all.

Well, I guess I should add something more.

Regarding snakes, there are a lot of stories about Yamata-no-orochi, but when I got this script, I did some research about whether there are scary stories regarding snakes.

 

[2:10]

Well, there are some superstitious beliefs like putting snake skin inside your wallet will make you rich, but when it comes to yokais, I found out that there aren’t many snake

yokais.

There was one which I never knew about before.

There’s a yokai called Shichihoda.

It’s name in kanji is written as: nanatsu (seven), aruku (walk), and hebi (snake).

I thought at first that it might be a snake with seven legs, but I realised that it wouldn’t be a snake anymore. Haha. Not to mention it’s an odd number!

So I got curious and researched about it.

 

[2:59]

Apparently it’s a yokai that has existed for very long time, and it looks like a dragon. It’s a four-legged snake with a dragon face.

Then it’s not a snake! I mean, it says it has a dragon face. Haha! Wouldn’t that mean it’s a dragon? But its name is Shichihoda.

So I was like, why does its name say “seven” and “walk” when it only has four legs?

This snake is only about 10cm. It’s very small.

Apparently it bites you if you get too close to it because you find it cute.

 

[3:42]

So it bites like… yes! Like Iriya’s small snakes.

So when it bites you, its venom is really poisonous, so the victim dies before he walks seven steps.

Hahahahahaha!

That’s why it’s called Shichihoda. It’s a snake that kills its victim within seven steps!

Well, wasn’t that educational?

Anyway, I’m the fourth one, so there are still four left!

If you had fun listening to this, please also listen to the rest!

If you started here, there have been three characters before me, so please enjoy those too!

Maybe you can even enjoy it with your friends!

I hope you continue to support us.

 

[4:34]

That was Shinnosuke Tachibana, acting as Iriya, for the free-talk!

Let’s meet again! Bye!
