Notes

  1. The BGM is an arrangement of Edward Elgar's "Pomp and Circumstance #1" a.k.a. "Land of Hope and Glory". It was playbacked also in Legend "D" & "1999" for SU-METAL's & YUIMETAL's Birthday Celebration.
  2. The "Second Impact" is the fictional meteorite impact happening on 2000 Sep. 13 in the anime "Neon Genesis EVANGELION". SU-METAL's birth may have made an impact equal to it.
  3. This "kotowari" means "logos" of the ancient philosophies rather than mere "physical laws" of the world. I dropped "kono yo no" (= of this world) since "the law of nature of this world" seems redundant.
  4. "--- to hikikae ni" is equivalent to "in exchange for ---", but both sound strange here. Probably 'he' wanted to mean "--- o gisei ni shite" which is equivalent to "by the sacrifice of ---" or something.
