There are several definitions of 天神 (tenjin), but it’s likely that the one used here is the more generic one that refers to heavenly gods, in contrast with earthly gods. It can also be pronounced ‘tenshin’, and the official site’s URL suggests that this is how we should interpret it. This is further supported by the album’s Google Play listing.

I’m pedantic so I put ‘the’ in front of the title, but you can take it out if you’d like.


You can’t steal this world
by playing hard to get.
The weak and the strong co-exist and prosper.
In that case, it’s only natural:
Fight (fight) fight (fight) fighting for me.
I shall lead the way. You don’t mind, do you?
(Shivering in fear…)
Do you have any questions, lovely soldier of mine?
(Shivering in fear…)

There’s no need to worry.
Naturally, you will
face forward and charge single-mindedly. Fight, fight, fight, fight!

Notice, notice, notice, notice. Dance
till your bones ache.
Notice, notice, notice, notice. Dance
and offer flowers.
Notice, notice, notice, notice. Warrior,
tie yourself to me.
Notice, notice, no.
(I don’t mind useful tools.)

Ah, what a maddening talent.
(Notice, notice, notice, notice, notice, notice, no.)
Please…

The illustrious purgatory goddess, <goddess>
her history of mercy is plain to see. <mercy>
<Woh, woh> I’ll hold you close in Hell <Hell!>

The illustrious purgatory goddess, <goddess>
her tenacity is plain to see. <tenacity>
<Woh, woh> (I won’t let you go!) <Hey!>

More (and more) and more (and more). Please,
finish drinking up my charisma, with its clean aftertaste.
Don’t leave any behind! Is it good?

Burn, dragon! This is a demon’s snare.
<Burn, dragon! This is a demon’s snare.>
Dance, dragon! Become intoxicated.
<Dance, dragon!>
Become intoxicated and dyed with the colours of Hell.

Notice, notice, notice, notice. Dance
till your bones ache.
Notice, notice, notice, notice. Dance
and offer flowers.
Notice, notice, notice, notice. Warrior,
tie yourself to me.
Notice, notice, no.
You’re my slave.

Now, I shall grant you existence. Ah.
Notice, notice, notice, notice. Dance,
o vulgar people!
Ah, this love gone mad,
Notice, notice, notice, notice, notice, notice it. Well,
I want it…!

The illustrious purgatory goddess, <goddess>
her history of mercy is plain to see. <mercy>
<Woh, woh> I’ll hold you close in Hell <Hell!>

The illustrious purgatory goddess, <goddess>
her tenacity is plain to see. <tenacity>
<Woh, woh> (I won’t let you go!) <Hey!>

Not yet, not yet, not yet, not yet. You’re not
the vessel to receive the clean aftertaste
of my charisma. Will you serve me?

I’m the strongest, wisest, and best soul in the Animal Realm. My intelligence network is the envy of all.
I’ll launch a strike at the encamped troops, even at the weak point on their backs. Nobody will notice them marching from the mound.
There aren’t enough provisions for the battle that’s starting. Humans are valued for their utility. It doesn’t matter who, I want them all!
From the bottom of your heart, won’t you love me?

The illustrious purgatory goddess, <goddess>
her history of mercy is plain to see. <mercy>
<Woh, woh> I’ll hold you close in Hell <Hell!>

The illustrious purgatory goddess, <goddess>
her tenacity is plain to see. <tenacity>
<Woh, woh> I won’t let you go! <Hey!>

Ready, set, go! I’ll bewitch human nature.
<Woh, woh> (Offer me your love) <Love!>

The illustrious purgatory goddess <goddess>
with all her human sprits. <human spirits>
<Woh woh> I’m throbbing now! <Hey!>

Not yet (not yet) not yet (not yet). Please,
(More) and more (and more) and more. (Please,)
finish drinking up my charisma, with its clean aftertaste.
Don’t leave any behind!
Please love me.

    Thank you so much for translating this so quickly!! The song and the PV are so good!!! I did not think much of Yachie till now lol

    By the way, I think some of the credit might be wrong?
    Its both Ayo and Ayaponzu* singing I believe (although I don’t know that it affects the lyrics much since I think they’re both just alternating for Yachie).
    Also the lyricist is credited as みゅい, but I don’t know if that’s perhaps an alias for/new name of Caral? (Like how I believe Chie Fukami became milka)
    Also also… a small thing, but the second half of the (bridge? after chorus?), the line is different from the first I think – – 舞えよ、ドラゴン as opposed to 燃えよ.

    Anyway sorry about that thank you so much!!! This is maybe one of my favorite Shinra-Bansho tracks ever (quite possibly because it sounds so different from most of Kaztora’s usual stuff) , I’ve been listening to it on loop since yesterday~

      Thanks for your comment! You never need to apologise for noticing incorrect credits or areas where I’ve missed things in the translation. Since I don’t have an editor I really appreciate the help (^_^)

      In this case the credits were wrong because I copied them from a previous translation and updated everything except for those parts, lol. I’ve fixed them now though, thanks again.

      It turns out that Myui is Caral’s new name, too – she tweets about it here: https://twitter.com/mayuminomoto/status/1255420437800116225?s=20

      I’ve updated the translation of 舞えよ、ドラゴン, it should be correct now. The copy paste demon has struck again!
