―Narration[src]

Ending Boy Hänsel is a song released by Akuno-P on March 19, 2015 as a bonus track for the purchase of the Seven Crimes and Punishments album and Deadly Sins of Evil: Fifth Pierrot from Animate. The song follows the life of Hänsel and his reincarnations up until the end of the world.

PlotEdit

The narration tells of how a seed of "malice" inside a beaker birthed Hänsel, a boy able to reincarnate; he lives as a woodcutter's son who defeats a witch, a slow-witted servant of Gluttony, Fifth Pierrot under the command of Santa Claus, and now an apostle of the eventual true end. The narration states how he appears on the full moon with either a silver knife or glass bottle depending on the person.

It then explains how the gods created the world as a millennial kingdom that was supposed to have eliminated malice, with four endings according to its rules: The endings of the Masters of the Graveyard, Court, Hellish Yard, and Heavenly Yard, the final ending possibly leading to utopia. As each ending is unavoidable, ultimately no matter the conclusion, punishment is mete equally to all. It notes that Hänsel's destiny beyond the millennium is yet unknown, being either an angel or mad familiar depending on the person.

CompositionEdit

The song primarly uses drums, electric and bass guitars, a viola, and a piano. The song opens immediately with the main instrumental, and by 0.13, a riff from the viola begins. The riff ends by 0.36, and heads back into the main instrumental. The first verse begins at 0.41, and ascends into a pre-chorus at 1.03 The chorus begins at 1.26, raised into a new key. The tune descends back into the main instrumental at 1.48, with added instrumentation.

The second verse begins at 2.05, followed by the second pre-chorus at 2.28. The second chorus succeeds the pre-chorus at 2.51, later ending at 3.13. The instrumental does not go back into its main counterpart afterwards, rather maintaining the chorus instrumental for the bridge. The third and final chorus begins at 3.48, ending at 4.08. The song ends in a variation of the main instrumental, ending at 4.22.

LyricsEdit

ビーカーの中で蠢いた
ちっちゃなちっちゃな悪意の種
生まれた片割れの一つ
その名も「ヘンゼル」

たとえその身が朽ちようと
何度でも繰り返す転生
それは神の所業
そして悪魔の悪戯

ある時は森にすむ木こりの子
悪い魔女をかまどに放り込め
ある時は悪食の召使
頭の悪い家畜世話係
またある時は五番目のピエロ
偉大なサンタクロースの息子
そしてその正体は
正統なる終末の使徒

満月の輝く夜
ヘンゼルは現れる
光帯びた凶器をその手に持ち

それが銀のナイフか
あるいはガラスの小瓶かは
彼の目の前に立つあなた次第


四柱の神に創られた
ちっちゃなちっちゃなこの世界
悪意を排除したはずの
千年王国

ルールの中で用意された
四つの異なるエンディング
少年を手にした者が
それを選ぶだろう


墓場の主は死をもたらす
全ての者は主の胃袋に
法廷の主は審判をもたらす
全ての者は裁きを受ける
冥界の主は地獄をもたらす
全ての者は永遠(とわ)に許されない
天界の主は贖罪をもたらし
ユートピアへと導くだろう

いずれかの終末が
世界に訪れる
それを避けることはけしてできない

定められた結末か
歪められたイレギュラーか
「罰」は等しく皆に下される


千年の時を越え
ヘンゼルは現れる
自らの宿命も知らぬままに

彼を天使にするか
狂気の使い魔にするかは
彼の目の前に立つあなた次第

A tiny, tiny seed of malice that wriggled inside the beaker
One of the fragments that it gave birth to, his name is Hansel
If his body should rot away, he’ll be reborn any number of times
That was the doing of gods, as a prank of demons

Once the child of a woodcutter living in the forest, he tossed the evil witch into the stove
Once the servant of gluttony, he was a dim-wit in charge of livestock
Once more the Fifth Pierrot, he was the son of the great Santa Claus
And his true colors are as an apostle of the ending that will become canon

On a night when the full moon shines, Hansel will appear
Holding a deadly weapon tinged with light in his hands,
Whether that’s a silver knife, or a glass bottle
That depends on you standing before his eyes

This tiny, tiny world created by the four pillar gods
This millennial kingdom that should have eliminated malice
Four different endings were prepared in the rules,
What the boy holds in his hands may just decide them

The Master of the Graveyard brings death, everything goes to her stomach
The Master of the Court brings the trial, everything receives judgment
The Master of the Hellish Yard brings hell, no one will ever be able to be forgiven
The Master of the Heavenly Yard brings atonement; they may show the way to Utopia

Any of the endings may come to the world
That certainly can’t be avoided
The established conclusion, or the distorted Irregular
Punishment will be given to all equally

Crossing the time span of a millennium, Hansel will appear
While not knowing his own destiny
Whether he’ll become an angel, or an insane familiar
That depends on you standing before his eyes
