Rokugen Alice is so grand, I love it. ‘Resurrection Butterfly’ is the name of one of Yuyuko’s spell cards. Where ‘maware’ (spin/revolve/turn) is sung, it’s written with an additional kanji, turning it into 輪廻, ‘the repeating cycle of life, death and rebirth’.

Original:
東方妖々夢 ~ Perfect Cherry Blossom
幽雅に咲かせ、墨染の桜 ~ Border of Life
(Bloom Nobly, Ink-Black Cherry Blossom ~ Border of Life)


数多運命、、、繰り返すは愚かなりし人の常

amata sadame,,, kurikaesu wa orokanarishi hito no tsune

A multitude of destinies – what repeats is humans’ foolishness

飽く事無く繰り返すは終わりへの序曲
嘆く運命、、、失う事恐れ歩み止めてまた
在らぬ才を求め其の身を血に染めたり

oku koto naku kurikaesu wa owari he no uta
nageku sadame,,, ushinau koto osore ayumi tomete mata
aranu sai wo motome sono mi wo chi ni sometari

Repeating without ever tiring is the prelude heading for the end
Destined to lament – dreading loss, they stop advancing again
Pursuing groundless aptitude, their beings are dyed with blood

全ては運命の下に在り 巡る世の理

subete wa sadame no moto ni ari meguru yo no kotowari

Everything exists beneath destiny, it’s the turning world’s principle

輪廻れ輪廻れ世の運命 尽きぬ願い血と共に
輪廻れ輪廻れ世の運命 重ね合わせ掌の平に眠れ

maware maware yo no sadame tsukinu negai chi to tomo ni
maware maware yo no sadame kasaneawase te no hira ni nemure

Spin, spin, destiny of the world – inexhaustible wishes, along with the blood
Spin, spin, destiny of the world – overlap and sleep in the palms of my hands

数多夢は救いの声、其れは争いの先に
手を招くは滅びの現実と知らずに
嘆く運命、、、失われし夢に溺れ歩み止め
奇跡求め動かざるは死も同じなり

amata yume wa sukui no koe, sore wa tatakai no saki ni
te wo maneku wa horobi no genjitsu to shirazu ni
nageku sadame,,, ushinawareshi yume ni obore ayumi tome
kiseki motome ugoku kazaru wa shi mo onaji nari

The many dreams are the voice of salvation, which lies beyond dispute
Not knowing that the reality of  destruction is beckoning
Destined to lament – drowing in lost dreams, they stop advancing
Put into motion by their seeking of a miracle, death, too, is equal

全ては運命の下に在り 巡る世の理

subete wa sadame no moto ni ari meguru yo no kotowari

Everything exists beneath destiny, it’s the turning world’s principle

輪廻れ輪廻れ世の運命 尽きぬ夢は血と共に
輪廻れ輪廻れ世の運命 重ね合わせ掌の平に還れ

maware maware yo no sadame tsukinu yume wa chi to tomo ni
maware maware yo no sadame kasaneawase te no hira ni kaere

Spin, spin, destiny of the world – inexhaustible dreams, along with the blood
Spin, spin, destiny of the world – overlap and return to the palms of my hands

人が生みし世の習いならば 全ては運命なり

hito ga umishi yo no narai naraba subete wa sadame nari

If it’s the way of the world brought forth by humans, all will be left to destiny

輪廻れ輪廻れ世の運命 尽きぬ願い死と共に
輪廻れ輪廻れ世の運命 重ね合わせ掌の平で眠れ

maware maware yo no sadame tsukinu negai shi to tomo ni
maware maware yo no sadame kasaneawase te no hira de nemure

Spin, spin, destiny of the world – inexhaustible wishes, along with death
Spin, spin, destiny of the world – overlap and sleep in the palms of my hands

    I don’t know why, this is just my opinion: Everything in rokugen in alice it’s great, for real… except their vocal. I mean, what the hell, I think is kinda terrible and doesn’t make justice to their instrumental and lyrics level. Anyway, good job. Thoses Lyrics are rly beautiful!

      More people seem to have this opinion, but I can’t say I’m one of them. In fact, I like the vocals – it’s a nice change from vocalists I hear often, I love the feeling in it and her pronunciation. Gotta agree about everything else though, their lyrics really drew me in!
