The Story of Evil,[1] also called The Daughter of Evil[2] series or simply as the Evil series, is a multimedia series conceptualized and developed by Akuno-P. It belongs to mothy's larger Evillious Chronicles. First developing as a series of songs in 2008, the story has since received numerous spin-offs and adaptations, including as books, plays, and manga. Although a separate series entirely, its story is part of the Seven Deadly Sins Series, detailing the events surrounding Princess Riliane Lucifen d'Autriche and the Sin of Pride.

SettingEdit

Story of Evil is set on Bolganio, a fictional continent in the series' world, with all of its major actions taking place in its western region, Evillious. The main storyline occurs throughout EC 499-505, although numerous events before and after are depicted or referenced in subsequent material. Many of the characters travel to and from numerous countries throughout the plot and their politics plays a large role in the events taking place.

CountriesEdit

Kingdom of LucifeniaEdit

Lucifenia map
A large and powerful nation within the Evillious region. It was also known as the "Yellow Country". After rapidly expanding through conquest during the reign of King Arth I, Lucifenia became the largest and most prosperous nation of its time and was unrivaled in military strength. Although maintaining peace and prosperity for nearly a decade during Queen Anne's reign, the nation has begun to decline due to the tyranny of Princess Riliane.[3]

Kingdom of ElphegortEdit

Elphegortmap2
A peaceful nation bordering Lucifenia. It was also known as the "Green Country". Due to the Millennium Tree Forest lying between both nations, Elphegort was protected from Lucifenia's conquests. Its people were characterized by their green hair; implementing strong nationalist policies, the natives heavily discriminated against foreigners, although its ruler, King Thorny Elphen, is a pacifist. Their sacred god Held is said to reside in its forest as the "Millennium Tree".[4]

Kingdom of MarlonEdit

Marlon kingdom
A powerful island nation on the Hark Sea west of the Evillious mainland. It was also known as the "Blue Country". Armed with the strongest navy of the region, Marlon is allies with Lucifenia. Its king, Kyle Marlon, was betrothed to Princess Riliane by the will of their mothers and set to be married when Riliane turned fifteen.[5] Although Kyle is the country's king, he is regarded as a puppet controlled by Queen Dowager Prim.[6] The nation once competed with the Lioness country over the island, but has since gained hegemony over it.[7] Many men from Marlon are said to be avid collectors.[8]

Beelzenian EmpireEdit

Beelzeniamap
An empire south of Lucifenia. It was also known as the "Red Country" or the "country born under the new moon". Once controlling two-thirds of Evillious, it encompassed both Lucifenia and Asmodean before both states declared independence and Beelzenia swiftly declined. It was later attacked by the Kingdom of Lucifenia during King Arth's rule and lost much of its territory. As a result, friction continues to develop between the Empire and Lucifenia.[9] It is the nation of origin for the Gula plague across the region.[10]

Divine LeviantaEdit

A large nation north of Elphegort and the religious capital of the Levin church. Rebuilt from the centuries-old ruins of the Magic Kingdom Levianta, the new nation is a shadow of its former glory. It held an alliance with the Kingdom of Elphegort.[11]

AsmodeanEdit

A nation east of Lucifenia and Elphegort. It was once part of the Beelzenian Empire before declaring its independence.[12] It was attacked by the Kingdom of Lucifenia during King Arth's rule and suffered greatly due to the war. It has poor relations with Elphegort and Lucifenia.[13] Numerous mercenaries are exported from the state.[14]

SongsEdit

Since its first Vocaloid song was posted on Nico Nico Douga, the series exploded in popularity among fans. With both of its original two songs reaching a million views on NND by the next year,[15] the "Evil" series was later looped into the Seven Deadly Sins Series and connected to the Clockwork Lullaby Series via Re_birthday. Many of its early songs have received several renditions by the author and both mothy and other producers have made songs referencing the series. In celebration of its final light novel, an album was released with several songs and instrumental pieces dedicated to the series.[16]

BooksEdit

In the wake of the original song series' success, mothy announced on his blog that The Daughter of Evil would receive a light novel adaptation, published by the PHP Institute.[17] The book series has since spawned three successive light novels and two databooks along with numerous short stories. Although following the events present in the original songs, the light novels expanded upon the existing characters that had appeared or were mentioned in the song PVs, as well as adding new characters and plot details. As of 2014, The Daughter of Evil series has sold over a million copies.[18] In promotion for the last light novel, an album was released with songs and instrumental pieces dedicated to the series.[19]

MangaEdit

Although not consistent with the established continuity, mothy advertised a spin-off manga for the series a month after the first light novel was released.[20] After The Daughter of Evil novel series finished, mothy announced on twitter that two new serial manga based on the series would appear in the March 27, 2013 issue of Blitz G's Comics.[21] A month since mothy's announcement, PHP made another announcement that they would publish a manga adaptation of The Daughter of Evil series, illustrated by Ichika.[22] The manga adaptation was later confirmed to release its first volume on February 17, 2014.[23]

Promotional image for the show

A play adaptation of the songs titled The Daughter of Evil ~Gemini of Charm~,[24] opened on January 27, 2010 and lasted until January 31, 2010.[25] The script was written by Hidekatsu Tokunaga, a member of X-QUEST, who adapted the story based on his own interpretation of the songs. Mothy was not involved in the script's creation and many events and settings in the play differ from their portrayal in the later light novels; they contain many of Tokunaga's original parodies and episodes added to the script. The character names were provided by mothy, albeit the character of "Michaela" from the light novels had been named "Maria" in the play adaptation.

The play featured numerous instrumental tracks as well as covers for the velvet mix variants of The Daughter of Evil, The Servant of Evil, Regret Message, and the first rendition of Twiright Prank. The covers were sung by Shimoda Asami, the voice actress who lent her voice for Kagamine Rin and Len's vocals. The original soundtrack was released on February 3, 2010 as an album.[26]

××× of Evil Edit

Another event called God of Evil,[27] was held on April 11, 2010 by Drama Group Brioche. The group was established by fans of the series to make a theater play of The Daughter of Evil, The Servant of Evil, and Regret Message. The Drama Group Brioche made a big success in God of Evil or "xxx of Evil" for short.[28]

VideogamesEdit

The Daughter of Evil as she appears in the game

The Daughter of Evil and The Servant of Evil made an appearance in the game Hatsune Miku and Future Stars Project Mirai for the Nintendo 3DS on March 8, 2012.[29] Two Modules designed by Ichika were created exclusively for the songs; the designs were similar to the original designs used in the light novel series but were melded with influences from the Evils Kingdom incarnations Ichika also designed. The song PVs in the game loosely follow the plot of the light novels, including cameos by various characters seen in the light novels. However, due to the nature of the medium and its liberties, several inconsistencies exist between the official continuity and the game's story, including the portrayal of the setting, characters, and events in their minute details.

ConcertsEdit

Daughter of Evil and Servant of Evil were featured at Hatsune Miku Live Party 2011 in Tokyo on March 9th, 2011. Projected on a screen, Rin debuted on stage with Riliane's classic laugh and performed a sole ensemble to an abbreviated version of The Daughter of Evil. Directly afterward, Len debuted and performed a similarly shortened version of The Servant of Evil. They repeated the performance in Sapporo and Singapore that same year and returned the following year in Tokyo at Hatsune Miku Live Party 2012.
