Rehabilitation, the Organisation for Restoring the Dignity of Demons

Vocals: 柿原徹也 (Tetsuya Kakihara), 山下大輝 (Daiki Yamashita)
Lyrics: タカハシヨウ (Takahashi You)
Composed by: タカハシヨウ (Takahashi You)
Album: 百鬼蛇行 (Meandering of One Hundred Demons) 【Official Site】
Group: manbo-p (家の裏でマンボウが死んでるP)
Release Date: February 3, 2016

Requested by: Anon II
Watch the official video here!

The blue demon’s name is 唯 (Yui), and he’s voiced by Daiki Yamashita. The red demon’s name is 綾 (Aya), and he’s voiced by Tetsuya Kakihara. There’s a bit of a story behind this album – unfortunately I wasn’t able to translate it. It seems to be based on the traditional ‘red demon, blue demon’ archetype. Since WordPress doesn’t let you colour individual blocks, I unfortunately couldn’t reflect the changes in characters…

The album title, pronounced ‘hyakki dakou’ is a play on 百鬼夜行 (‘hyakki yakou’ – Night parade of one hundred demons).


俺はこの鬼の中学で一番強い お前は強いよな
昨日はカマキリと見事引き分けた
袖を噛まれたのによく立ったよ 名誉の負傷だ
血は出てないけど赤くはなった
なのに泣かなかったぜ

ore wa kono oni no chuugaku de ichiban tsuyoi omae wa tsuyoi na
kinou wa kamakiri to migoto hikiwaketa
sode o kamareta noni yoku tatta yo meiyo no fushou da
chi wa detenai kedo akaku wa natta
nanoni nakanakatta ze

I’m the strongest in this middle school for demons! “You’re strong, aren’t you?”
Yesterday I had a spectacular draw with a praying mantis.
Your sleeve was gnawed at but you stood back up. “It was a prestigious injury.”
No blood came out, but the area was red.
Still, I didn’t cry.

僕はこの鬼の中学で一番聡い お前は賢いぜ
昨日は割り算の記号を覚えた
難しくて俺は泣いちゃったのに 僕の知能なら
ケーキすら二等分できる
包丁が怖くて吐くけど

boku wa kono oni no chuugaku de ichiban satoi omae wa kashikoi ze
kinou wa warizan no kigou o oboeta
muzukashikute ore wa naichatta noni boku no chinou nara
keeki sura nitoubun dekiru
houchou ga kowakute haku kedo

I’m the cleverest in this middle school for demons! “You’re so wise.”
Yesterday I learned the division symbol.
It was so tough I burst into tears, though. “With my intellect…”
You can even divide a cake into two.
I’m so scared of knives I vomit, though.

鬼が恐れられたのも今は昔
愚かな人間どもはもう忘れている
もう一度この金棒の錆になりたいか
見せてやろう 我らが種族
鬼のチカラを!

oni ga osorerareta no mo ima wa mukashi
oroka na ningen-domo wa mou wasurete iru
mou ichido kono kanabou no sabi ni naritai ka
misete yarou warera ga shuzoku
oni no chikara o!

The time when demons were feared is long past.
The foolish humans have forgotten all about us.
Do you want your blood to rust my iron club again?
We’ll show you the power of our species,
The power of demons!

たらふくビビれ人間ども
画鋲をたくさん見せてやる
しこたま慄け人間ども
目を見てハキハキ喋ってやる

O humans, be full of fear!
We’ll show you a load of thumb tacks!
O humans, tremble!
We’ll look into your eyes and speak really quickly.
O humans, be full of fear!
We’ll put on some largish sweatpants!
O humans, tremble!
We’ll say “Gah!” really loudly!
Like us, write it on the back of your hand and remember it.
Our name is Rehabilitation, the organisation for restoring the dignity of demons.

我らの日常は いつだって冒険
裏山に見参 大人抜きでだぜ?
うわあ! どうした?
ヨモギでコケた! 虎パン(※「すごく」の意)痛そう!
帰ろう にわかに心細い
おんぶするよ 無理だ あばらが折れる
もうダメだ 腹減った グミ食う?
噛み切れない!

onbu suru yo muri da abara ga oreru
mou dame da hara hetta gumi kuu?
kamikirenai!

Our daily lives are always an adventure.
We’ll go and see the hill round the back without the adults, right?
“Agh!” “What happened?”
“I tripped over a bush!” “It looks so painful!”
(1)
“Let’s head back. I feel hopeless all of a sudden.”
“I’ll carry you back.” “No way! Your ribs will break.”
“I can’t go on.” “I’m hungry!” “Want some gummis?”
I can’t bite through them!

しかしこのパイ生地でできた金棒が
我らの豪腕でも折れないように
どんなピンチも我らの心を折れない
見せてやろう 我らが種族
鬼のチカラを!

shikashi kono pai kiji de dekita kanabou ga
warera no gouwan demo orenai you ni
donna pinchi mo warera no kokoro o orenai
misete yarou warera ga shuzoku
oni no chikara o!

Still, our hearts won’t break. They’re like our clubs
that are made from pie dough
and can’t be broken by even our strong arms.
We’ll show you the power of our species,
The power of demons!

たらふくビビれ人間ども
「あっ」て言った後黙ってやる

辛めの大根を食わせてやる
たらふくビビれ人間ども

しこたま慄け人間ども
堂々とタンクトップ着てやる
念のために母さんにも覚えてもらえ
我らの名は「鬼の尊厳復権組織りはびり」

warera no na wa “oni no songen fukken soshiki rihabiri”

O humans, be full of fear!
We’ll fall silent after saying “ah.”
O humans, tremble!
We’ll feed you salty daikon.
O humans, be full of fear!
We’ll read “Gongitsune” aloud.
(2)
O humans, tremble!
We’ll wear tank tops majestically.
Just in case, we’ll make our mums remember it too.
Our name is Rehabilitation, the organisation for restoring the dignity of demons.

ある日噂を聞いた ある人間の高校が
人間以外の生徒を 40名募るらしい
バカめ 自ら脅威を引き入れるとは
見せてやろう 我らが種族
鬼のチカラを!

aru hi uwasa o kiita aru ningen no koukou ga
ningen igai no seito o 40-mei tsunoru rashii
baka me mizukara kyoui o hikiireru to wa
misete yarou warera ga shuzoku
oni no chikara o!

I hear a rumour that day that said a certain human high school
was searching for 40 students who aren’t human.
How foolish—to think they themselves would invite the threats in.
We’ll show you the power of our species,
The power of demons!

たらふくビビれ人間ども
尊厳を取り戻す日が来た
しこたま慄け人間ども
他の受験生を邪魔してでも
たらふくビビれ人間ども
聡明な我らは合格する
しこたま慄け人間ども

shikotama ononoke ningen-domo
kukkyou na warera wa shihai suru

O humans, be full of fear!
The day has come for us to take back our dignity.
O humans, tremble!
Even if we’re a nuisance to the other test-takers…
O humans, be full of fear!
We, the wise ones, will pass.
O humans, tremble!
We, the muscular ones, will rule.

たらふくビビれ人間ども
席替えにドキドキしないでやる
しこたま慄け人間ども
パ行も強めに言ってやる
たらふくビビれ人間ども
バディーなのに裏切ってやる
しこたま慄け人間ども
卓球部のくせに恋してやる
黄虎パン(※「最高に」の意)やべぇ高校生活の幕開け
関節を労わりながら立ち上がるぜ!りはびり!

tarafuku bibire ningen-domo

shikotama ononoke ningen-domo
takkyuubu no kuse ni koi shite yaru
kitorapan yabee koukousei no maku ake
kansetsu o itawari nagara tachiagaru ze! rihabiri!

O humans, be full of fear!
We won’t get anxious when changing seats.
O humans, tremble!
We’ll emphasise words starting with ‘p’.
(3)
O humans, be full of fear!
We’re buddies, but we’ll double-cross you.
O humans, tremble!
We’ll fall in love with you, even though you’re in the ping-pong club.
It’s totally awesome! The curtain rises on high school life.
(4)
We’ll stand up while nursing our joints! Rehabilitation!

(3) The word used is パ行 (pa-gyou), which refers to the sounds that appear in the ‘pa’ row of hiragana (i.e. pa, pi, pu, pe, po).
(4) 黄虎パン (kitorapan – yellow tiger-striped pants) is written and sung, with the explanation that it’s a demon word meaning 最高に (saikou ni – totally/the best).

      That’s so true! They seem like the sort of pair who can do absolutely anything if they want to…

        It’d be great if his stuff got its own adaptation (well one of the vocaloid songs got a manga but a full on anime short would be cool too owo)

          Not sure if that counts, but I think the this song’s album has some tracks that are sort of mini radio dramas (in that there’s no music, just voices). I’m guessing that’s why Manbou got some real actors for the characters instead of using Vocaloids.

          Honestly, the crossfade alone seems super fun and I’m sad that it’ll probably never be translated.

            Ah, that’s cool. Them having a ‘storyline’ in an album/CD is pretty cool :’D

        Also, for their slight convo like “Agh!” “What happened?” maybe put it in quotes so it’s easier to tell it’s a conversational exchange lol

          Thanks for the suggestion! I went through and added in a few quotation marks, hopefully it makes it a bit easier to split the dialogue up.
