Original theme: Beware the Umbrella Left There Forever [万年置き傘にご注意を]

Requested by: katsuragirin

It’s Automata Girl, so of course the lyrics are complicated…

But anyway, here’s what I make of this song: Kogasa is an artisan trading during the Edo period. She makes a living selling intricate Japanese parasols (和簦, wagasa, these things are made to keep the sun off you, not the rain). However, there’s a boom in Western-style things, which means that Western umbrellas (蝙蝠, koumori) are now the craze. As a result, Kogasa has to either try making these new cheap umbrellas or change her old parasols to be more ‘fashionable’ (basically, make ‘Western parasols’). She’s not happy about it. In the end, it seems like she’s swept up into a rebellion against Western-styled stuff and the rich elite.

And if that isn’t enough, the word for ‘Western/bat umbrella’ (蝙蝠, koumori) also means ‘traitor.’ So Kogasa is waging war on two fronts – war against Western umbrellas, and war against the ‘traitors’ present in society.

That’s some deep stuff right there.


ひとつ 和簦を粮にして
其處な花屋の御嬢さん 過ぎたる日差は毒さ

然れど皆目向かず 丁稚書生は呆れ顔
売れども立たぬ生計よ あゝ
骨を折つても畳めぬ物 ふたつ

朦朧雲が揺蕩ふ夜には 喰へもせぬ矜持など
棄去つて襟立てちまへれば 樂になれるのかな
情と勇気と和簦が在れば 他に要らなひでせう
打倒西洋気触れ 遣つてやるのさ!

みっつ 舌先で渡れや歩けや
世は畢竟無情さ 掛け金参昧
なれば新生とびだす和簦 蝙蝠和簦も附けりゃ

洋即斬 洋即斬 洋即斬
洋食は 商敵だ 空腹だ

斯くなる上は佰貨店迄 撲込みだ!

破落戸共が氣取りやがつて サアサア御覧じろ
打倒西洋気触れ 遣つてやるのさ
何奴も此奴もてんで雑魚さ 矢張最強和簦チャン
浪漫背負つて壹閃 遣つてやるのさ!

I have a single parasol by my side for encouragement.
Nothing will come from those Western umbrellas, though I guess they’re charming…
Sunlight is poison for the lady selling flowers over there.
Oh, thank you for your patronage.

This one’s entirely unsuitable for that apprentice houseboy. He’s stunned.
Though I sell them, they’re useless. I make a living. Ah…
I’ve sold two of those things, which can’t be folded up once their frame is broken.

The hazy clouds drift by in the night. Perhaps it’s time
For me to throw that pride of mine away and straighten up. If I do, will I be happy?
As long as I have love, courage, and my parasol, I need nothing else.
Knocking down the West-a-holics? I’m gonna do it!
Perfection is so distant…

Three! The word crosses over, walks over my tongue.
In the end, this world’s just cruel. I have three bills to pay.
The parasol leaps out, reborn. If I add a Western parasol, too…
Hah, I’ll get rich quick with this!

Out with the West! Out with the West! Out with the West!
Western-style food is a rival – it’s starvation!

I want to be on top, even if it’s just for a little while.
Since it’s come to this, I’ll send you flying to the department store!

The rogues are so pretentious! Come, come, take a look.
Knocking down the West-a-holics? I’m gonna do it!
It’s a rebellion against the social hierarchy.
They’re all just commoners. I, the strongest little parasol girl, am as well!
Bearing an adventurous spirit, we shine. We’re gonna do it!
No matter what you say to us.
