"Because on this kind of dark night, a frightful bear comes out."
―Eve Moonlit[src]

Moonlit Bear is a song released by Akuno-P on June 22, 2009. It is the fourth song of the Original Sin Story and the sequel to Escape of Salmhofer the Witch.

PlotEdit

One night in the forest, a young woman discovers two "apples" lying on the ground during her walk. Overjoyed, she picks them up to take home to her husband, noting she must hurry because bears liked to come out at night. Suddenly, the woman is pursued by a "bear" and she begins to run, although knowing deep down that the two fruits were the bear's beloved treasures. She stumbles through the forest, lost, and begins to cry along with the bear and the fruits. Finally, however, she arrives home safely.

Upon arrival, the woman shows the apples to her husband. Horrified by the sight, he reminds her that their own children are already dead, instructing her to return these ones to their real mother. Realizing that she'd kidnapped a baby boy and girl, the woman screams in horror at her "unforgivable sin." As her husband insists that she can still fix it, the woman admits that it is already too late; outside the house is the dead "bear," in reality the children's now dead mother. Beside the corpse is a glass bottle filled with milk.

CompositionEdit

Hatsune Miku's VOCALOID2 voicebank is used for the original song, along with KAITO's VOCALOID voicebank at the climax of the song. The original utilizes piano, as well as synthesizers, drums, bass guitar, violin, acoustic guitar and a music box effect. The song also features background noises, such as crows, muffled screams, and a door being slammed. For the new version of the song, Hatsune Miku Append is used. The synths are not used as prolifically, contrary to the original. Synth drums and claps are added, however. 

The song opens up with the caws of crows, then the instrumental picks up. At 0.45, the first verse begins, followed by the pre-chorus beginning at 1.18, shifting to the first chorus at 1.50. At 2.39, the song enters a bridge. The bridge ends (emphasized by the slammed door) and the second verse begins at 3.19. At 4.24, a long instrumental begins, and the singer's screams can be heard. At 4.36, the second chorus begins and ends at 5.30. A coda begins immediately after, and the song ends with the opening instrumental, when crows can be heard again. At 6.28, the instrumental chorus of Tale of Abandonment on a Moonlit Night can be heard.

LyricsEdit

暗い クライ 森の片隅
赤い アカイ 果実を拾った

これは キット 神様からの
素敵なステキナプレゼント

持って帰れば喜ぶかしら?
嬉しすぎて泣いちゃうかもね

今日は 月がとてもきれいね
早く ハヤク お家へ帰ろ

こんな暗い夜には コワイ熊が出るから

せっかく見つけたのよ ようやく見つけたのよ
誰にも ダレニモ 決して渡したりしたくない

花咲く森の道 私は駆け抜ける
赤い果実を抱えながら
このまま帰れば 私もあの人も
きっと幸せになれるはず

ところが後から 怖い顔をした
熊が私を追いかける
お願い 許してください
見逃してください

わかっていたの 本当はこの果実が
あの熊の宝物だと

私は走る さまよい走る
この幸せは渡さない
熊の姿は 月に照らされ
黒い影が私に迫る

正しい道は すでに失い
それでも走る ただただ走る
私は泣いて 熊も泣いてた
二つの果実も泣いていた

やっとたどり着いた 愛しの我が家
彼は優しく微笑んだけど
私の抱えた 果実を見て
とても悲しい顔をしたのです

「いいかい 僕たちの子供はもうすでに
この世にはいないんだよ
この子たちは本当の
お母さんの元へ返してあげなさい」

いつか真実が その牙と爪で
私自身を引き裂いても
その暖かい やさしい果実を
どうしても欲しかったの

神様私は 許されぬ罪を
この手で犯してしまいました
「今ならやり直せる」と
あの人は言うけど

「無理よ だってもう…」

家の外で横たわるは 一匹の熊の亡骸(一人の女の亡骸)
傍らには ミルクの満ちた 小さなガラスの小瓶…

In a dark dark corner of the forest
I picked up red red fruits
These are surely wonderful, wonderful
Presents from God

If I carry them home will we be delighted, I wonder?
Maybe so happy we’ll cry
The moon is very pretty today, isn’t it?
Let’s hurry, hurry to return home

For on a dark night such as this
A scary bear comes out

At long last I’ve found them
Finally I’ve found them
I certain don’t want
To do something like hand them over to anyone, to anyone

I run through a forest path where flowers bloom
While I’m carrying with me red fruits
If I return like this, he and I
Surely can become happy
Later on however, a bear that
Made a scary face chases me
Please, forgive me
Please overlook me

I knew that in truth, these fruits
Are that bear’s treasures

I run, a wandering run
I won’t hand over my happiness
The bear’s form is illuminated by the moon
Its dark shadow draws closer to me

The correct path is already lost
But still I run, I only run
I cry, the bear was crying too
The two fruits were also crying

At last I finally arrived, at my beloved home
He was kindly smiling, but
He saw the fruit I held
And made a very sad face

“Listen, our children are already
Not in this world
Return these children
To their true mother’s side”

Even if reality tore me apart someday
With its fangs and claws
Those warm, kind fruits
I wanted them at any cost

God, with my own hands
I committed an unforgivable sin
“If you do it now you can start over”
He said that, but

“That’s impossible! Because I already…”

Lying down outside the house is the corpse of a lone woman

Nearby, full of milk
Was a small glass bottle…

TriviaEdit

Conceptualization and OriginEdit

  • The song's title, "Moonlit Bear", refers to the "bear" that chased the song's central character, Eve Moonlit; the word "bear" also means "to carry", referring to the consequences Eve would bear for her sin.
  • Like Tale of Abandonment on a Moonlit Night, Full Moon Laboratory, and Escape of Salmhofer the Witch, the story takes place on a moonlit night; the moon is often associated with madness and is the origin of the word "lunacy".
  • The song's English title, "First Episode", refers to its depiction of the creation of the Original Sin, the origin of the vessels of sin.

CuriositiesEdit

  • A short story elaborating on the events in the song is included in Waltz of Evil: The Deadly Sins of Evil Guidebook.
  • The glass bottle present in the song seems to be the same one seen in Tale of Abandonment on a Moonlit Night; a similar glass bottle appears in Regret Message.
  • Eve's belief that the "right path" had already been lost parallels Tale of Abandonment on a Moonlit Night, where Hänsel and Gretel express uncertainty on whether or not they travel along the "right path"; both situations involved outward lunacy on a moonlit night through Held's Forest
  • Toward the beginning of the original song PV, before the first lyrics are heard, the questions "What do you hope to the moon" and "Do you wish it for the person who loves" are seen.
  • Both songs also share the same melody during that part, although at a different pace.
  • The opening melody of Tale of Abandonment on a Moonlit Night is heard at the end of Moonlit Bear, during the credits; similarly the song's opening caws of crows is heard at the end of Escape of Salmhofer the Witch. 
  • The song was rearranged by mothy using Hatsune Miku Append Solid, titled "Moonlit Bear (new version)", a track included in Original Sin Story -Act 1-
