Fifth Pierrot is a song released by Akuno-P on June 3, 2011. It follows the story of Fifth Pierrot, an assassin of Père Noël, who stalks the city streets of Rolled by night.

PlotEdit

At 2 AM in the city of Rolled, Lemy Abelard seeks his next victim. He explains what First Santa Claus taught him about the world being a place full of mistakes, making it his job to punish the bad children as Fifth Pierrot. The boy then stabs a pig with his knife and later plays his flute beneath the moon in an empty circus, "turning the black to red". The Pierrot's cage is opened and he goes out into the streets. After Seventh Magician asks Pierrot to escape with her, the boy informs Santa and Magician disappears from Père Noël the next day.

Later, at night, Pierrot awaits his new prey, only to feel a pain in his chest and panic as he begins to die. Looking up, he sees his assailant, Eighth Sniper. The boy begins to grow sleepy and sees his real parents smiling at him; in his last moments, he hears Seventh Magician say that he should have escaped with her, laughing at him. Afterwards, a message is sent from First Santa Claus to her "beloved sister-in-law", saying she will wait for her at Merrigod Plateau; she signs it from "Irina Clockworker." 

CompositionEdit

Kagamine Len's vocals are utilized for the duration of the song, with Megurine Luka and GUMI added for the Evils Court release. Electric guitar, drums, bass guitar, synth piano, and piano are used for instrumentals, and a radio filter is used for the bridge as well.

The song opens up with an instrumental, followed by the first verse at 0.23, while the first pre-chorus begins at 0.48, with the chorus succeeding it by 1.01. An instrumental break begins at 1.25, introducing a guitar solo, and ends at 1.50. The second verse begins immediately afterwards, followed by a second pre-chorus at 2.15, with an instrumental break at 2.31. The instrumental break changes the key of the song, but it later regains its original key at 2.42, when the bridge begins. At 3.08, the final chorus begins, and ends at 3.40. A variation of the opening instrumental plays at 3.46 and rapidly gains tempo until the song's end.

LyricsEdit

もしも 生まれ変わらなければ

午前二時 暗闇の街 
今宵の犠牲者は誰?
悪い子にはお仕置き 
それがピエロの仕事

サンタさんから学んだ事 
世界は間違いだらけ
五番目の道化師は 
今日も闇夜に踊る

白塗りの顔 
おどけた少年が
太った豚に
銀のナイフを
突き立てる

今宵乱れしピエピエロ 
観客のない夜のサーカス
あの月の為に笛を吹け 
そして黒から赤へ
 
今日も踊り狂いしピエピエロ 
魔性の檻はもう開かれた
火の輪をくぐった猛獣は
街をさまよい歩くよ

優しくて暗い目をした 
七番目の手品師が
ここから逃げ出そうと
甘い誘いをかける

サンタさんに教えてあげた 
裏切り者がいますと
次の日に手品師は
行方知れずとなった

ピエロの頭 
優しく撫でる
サンタさんの手 
それはまるで・・・

今日も仕事だピエピエロ 
裏路地の陰 獲物を待った
不意に響き渡る破裂音 
そして黒から赤へ

胸が痛いよピエピエロ 
死にたくないよ 死にたくないよ
無言で目の前に立っている 
八番目の狙撃手

今宵乱れしピエピエロ 
とても眠いと目を閉じたんだ
夢の中で微笑んでいる
本当の父と母

もう踊ることのないピエピエロ 
「だから逃げようって言ったのに」
そう呟いて嗤ったのは 
七番目の手品師だった…

If only I wasn’t reborn

At 2 AM in a dark town, who will be the victim tonight?
Punishing bad children, that’s Pierrot’s job
From Ms. Santa he learned that the world is full of mistakes
Fifth Clown will dance in the dark night today too

The boy who played fool with a painted white face
Thrusts a silver knife in a fat pig

Tonight the chaotic Pie-Pierrot, in a circus of night without an audience
Plays on a flute for that moon, and the black goes to red
Today too, madly dancing Pie-Pierrot’s devilish cage has already been opened
The beast of prey that jumped through hoops of fire will make a wandering walk through town

With kind and dark eyes, Seventh Magician
Sweetly tempted him to escape from here
He explained to Ms. Santa that there’s a traitor
The next day the Magician’s whereabouts became unknown.

Gently stroking Pierrot’s head,
Ms. Santa’s hands, they were like…

Today is work too, Pie-Pierrot waited for prey in a shadowy back alley
Suddenly there’s a plosive sound, and the black goes to red
His chest really hurts, Pie-Pierrot doesn’t want to die! He doesn’t want to die!
Silently standing before his eyes is Eighth, Sniper

Tonight the chaotic Pie-Pierrot very tiredly closed his eyes
Smiling inside the dream are his real mother and father
He won’t be dancing anymore, Pie-Pierrot, “That’s why I told you to escape.”
Yes, sneering so, quietly, was Seventh, Magician…

TriviaEdit

Conceptualization and OriginEdit

  • The Pierrot is a stock character in French pantomime, usually described as a naive or foolish character that becomes a victim of the other people's pranks, reflecting how Lemy was manipulated by Julia to be her personal tool; the Pierrot is also often portrayed as a clown or jester, matching Lemy's attire.
  • The Lucifenian Republic, where Rolled is located, is inspired by the French Republic, tying to Fifth Pierrot's influences. 
  • The song's English title, "The end of Hänsel", refers to Lemy's being a reincarnation of Hänsel as well as his demise.
  • While commenting on the song, mothy expressed his belief that the clown profession is packed with romance and therefore had fun creating the piece.[1]

CuriositiesEdit

  • The Evils Court booklet lists the court as not touching upon Lemy's case in the future, stating that Julia being the leader of Père Noël proved Lemy was also a member.[2]
  • Later in the booklet, Gammon Octo comments about the differences between Lemy and other reincarnations of Hänsel and Gretel; he then notes that the Servants were only copies of them and questions what happened to the originals.[3]
  • The song was remastered and included in Evils Court, utilizing the vocals of Luka and GUMI for small portions of the song dealing with Seventh Magician and Eighth Sniper.
