Followed by The Lunacy of Duke Venomania
"I have unlimited time anyway."
―Elluka Clockworker[src]

Chrono Story is a song released by Akuno-P on December 22, 2010 in the Evils Kingdom album and later uploaded to youtube with a PV on May 8, 2011 and to Nico Nico Douga the next day. It is the sixth song in the Clockwork Lullaby Series, tying both to the Seven Deadly Sins Series and Original Sin Story together as part of the Evillious Chronicles.

PlotEdit

The song starts in Held's Forest as Hänsel asks Gretel if she can hear birds or see the moonlight. Gretel replies that she actually hears the "cry of the forest" and sees the light from the fire. The twins recount how they killed the woman they called "mother" and found the Original Sin she left behind. They split her Sin into seven pieces: Lust the Flower, Gluttony the Seed, Pride the Gems, Envy the Spring, Sloth the Wind, Greed the Soil, and Wrath the Forest. In the process, they unleash the Seven Deadly Sins into the world and pray that it will keep turning.

In response to this event, the tree of Held asks an old friend, Elluka Clockworker, to retrieve the sins. At this she considers how she was given immortality after destroying "that which was precious," but only feels emptiness as a result. Concluding her thoughts, she agrees to do so as long as it keeps her entertained, stating that her "time is unlimited anyway". The PV then depicts Elluka going on her journey to find the Sins. It shows the four main harem members, Maylis BeelzeniaGumina Glassred, Lukana Octo, and Mikulia Greeonio. At the end of the PV she arrives at Duke Sateriasis Venomania's mansion.

CompositionEdit

The piece utilizes Kagamine Rin and Len Act2 during the beginning in a duet; as well as Megurine Luka later in the song. All vocals are done with the VOCALOID2 engine, and instruments used include piano, viola, electric guitar, drums, French horn, and bass guitar. The sound of a crackling fire is heard in the beginning as well.

The opening instrumental begins at 0.10, with vocals starting at 0.22. The first verse ends at 0.56, followed by the pre-chorus, and the first chorus begins at 1.13, ending to a rollicking introduction by a guitar. The music begins to pick up speed, and the next set of vocals begin at 2.01. The second verse ends at 2.32, followed by a brief instrumental, the next verse beginning at 2.54, with the fourth verse beginning at 3.24. A variation of the opening guitar solo begins afterwards. The distinctive "lu li la" melody accompanied by the opening piano can be heard at 4.33. The song ends at 4.51.

LyricsEdit

聞こえてくるのは鳥の歌?
いいえそれは森の鳴き声
輝いているのは月の光?
いいえそれは燃える炎よ

かつて「母さん」と呼んだ人
暖炉の中で灰へと変わり
後に残った「始まりの罪」
僕らの手で七つに分けた

「色欲」は花
「悪食」は種
「傲慢」は石
「嫉妬」は泉
「怠惰」は風
「強欲」は土
そして
「憤怒」は森

舞い上がれ七つの罪
偽りの母から生まれた穢れ
回れ廻れ世界よ
この悪しき大罪
清めてよ

禁断の果実の手で
世界に放たれた七つの罪
森を守るエルドの樹は
すべての回収を友に頼む

「退屈しのぎになるならそれも構わない」
「どうせ時間は無限にあるし」
嗤う魔道師

愛する人を失い
大事なものを壊したその果てに
与えられた悠久は
彼女にとって空虚でしかない

全てを手に入れ
そして失った魔道師は
何を望む?
何を求める?
時の果てに・・・

一人の女から生まれて育まれ
七つに裂かれた罪のストーリー
時を越える魔女の酔狂な気まぐれ
森から始まる時の物語(クロノ・ストーリー)

Kikoete kuru no wa tori no uta?
Iie sore wa mori no nakigoe
Kagayaiteiru no wa tsuki no hikari?
Iie sore wa moeru honoo yo

Katsute "Kaasan" to yonda hito
Danro no naka de hai e to kawari
Ato ni nokotta "Hajimari no Tsumi"
Bokura no te de nanatsu ni waketa

"Gouman" wa ishi
"Shitto" wa izumi
"Taida" wa kaze
"Gouyoku" wa tsuchi

Maiagare nanatsu no tsumi
Itsuwari no haha kara umareta kegare
Maware maware sekai yo
Kono ashiki taizai

Kindan no kajitsu no te de
Sekai ni hanatareta nanatsu no tsumi
Mori wo mamoru erudo no ki wa
Subete no kaishuu wo tomo ni tanomu

"Taikutsu shinogi ni naru nara sore mo kamawanai"
"Douse jikan wa mugen ni arushi"
Warau madoushi

Ai suru hito wo ushinai
Daiji na mono wo kowashita sono hate ni
Ataerareta yuukyuu wa
Kanojo ni totte kuukyo de shika nai

Subete wo te ni ire
Soshite ushinatta madoushi wa
Nani wo nozomu?
Nani wo motomeru?
Toki no hate ni...

Hitori no onna kara umarete hagukumare
Nanatsu ni sakareta tsumi no sutoorii
Toki wo koeru majo no suikyou na kimagure
Mori kara hajimaru kurono sutoorii

Is that the song of birds that I can hear?
No, that is the cry of the forest
Is that the light of the moon that’s shining?
No, that’s the burning fire

The person we used to call “mother”
Turns to ashes inside the stove
“The Original Sin” that remained afterwards
We divided into seven with our own hands

“Lust”, is the flower
“Gluttony”, is the seed
“Pride”, is the stone
“Envy”, is the spring
“Sloth”, is the wind
“Greed”, is the dirt
And,
“Wrath”, is the forest

Fly away, seven sins
The impurity born from our false mother
Let the world turn and turn
This evil, grave sin
Purify it

By the hands of the forbidden fruit
The seven sins were released into the world

The tree of Held, who protects the forest,
Requests his friend to collect them all

“If it turns into a way to kill time that’s no problem”
“’Cause my time is infinite anyhow”
The sorceress sneers

The eternity she was granted
At the end of having lost the one she loved
And destroyed what was precious
To her was nothing but emptiness

The sorceress who obtained everything
And then lost it
What does she wish for?
What does she seek?
To the end of time…

Born and raised from a lone woman
The story of such a sin cut into seven
The capricious whim of a witch who transcends time
This Chrono Story that begins from the forest

TriviaEdit

Conceptualization and OriginEdit

  • The root word chrono is Greek for "time"; this theme is reinforced by Elluka's remark that her time is limitless as well as the gear that appears at the end of the song PV.
  • The song title's romanization (Kurono Sutori) can be interpreted as meaning "Dark Story" (Kuro no Sutori).

CuriositiesEdit

  • The Evils Court booklet lists the song as a secret exchange between Elluka and Held and that his leaving from the mortal realm was crucial for the creation of Evil's Theater.[1]
  • Later in the booklet, Gammon Octo summarizes the events of the song; humorously, he comments right after that having so many characters complicates the story.[2]
  • In the song, Wrath is represented by the color white; it is later represented by the color green in Judgment of Corruption.
  • Before introducing Elluka, the song PV depicts several of her bodies: her original form, her swap with Lukana Octo, and Ma after her swap with Kayo Sudou.
  • The two words in the Swap Technique's activation phrase (ノロク  リトス, noroku ritosu) use the same characters as the song's title with the characters in each word reversed.
