PostSubject: Gaiden - Wenkamui   Sun Feb 17, 2013 7:28 am

I thought I will just put my translation attempt of Wenkamui chapter from Masinowa album booklet.
As I am not even close of having the most fluent or great knowledge in Japanese, please forgive the inaccuracy or awkwardness in my attempted translation.

Wenkamui Evil God.

In Masinowa Legend it’s said to be the birth land of an Evil God and treated as forbidden land. However this is the interpretation from Yamaji’s side, while originally Wenkamui’s meaning is ‘The land of origin’

Because of big eruption of Mount Mifushi, people that lived on plain at the southern end was chased away from their residence and migrated even further south. Then the uncivilised wasteland was named “Wenkamui: The land of Origin” and they lived there. The one who named Wenkamui was the one who lead them all that time, Sonigi.
Sonigi is a descendant of people that ‘bathed in mysterious light’ and has a unique ability/skill. However, it’s not the case that all in the lineage of people ‘bathed in mysterious light’ has a unique ability.

Everyone equally has snake like mark on their backs, however the first one who can ‘use’ Kagachi was Sonigi.
Most likely, in human lineage the potential ability is being passed down without being developed. It’s also possible in Sonigi’s generation by some kind of chance it was being activated.
A lot of women are supported by Sonigi, Wenkamui is developed around the descendant of Sonigi. Sonigi’s descendants… in other words the Kagachin.

People ‘bathed in mysterious light’, brought back a crimson gem from ruin in Junaguni island. This gem became the heritage treasure of Kagachi, and for generations carrying the sword embed with this gem became the proof as Wenkamui’s leader.

This crimson gem brings tragedy to Wenkamui.
Around 600 before history, the never seen before giant people came to Wenkamui. People of Wenkamui can’t comprehend what they were talking about, however by instinct they feel danger towards themselves.
Kunigi who was the leader at that time, pick up the crimson gem inserted sword and stand against the giants. The giants open their eyes and view the sword in doubt (?), while whispering something they went away.

Giant kind__Gadena.
They lived at EJIIKU(?)’s most southern border, Dalisian. Fundamentally they are different to Humina.
To begin with they were beast that has no wisdom, however as soon as they discovered the red jewel they evolute into a form of human beast to the point that they posses both strength and wisdom.
Red Jewel___crimson gem___ Ristaccia.
The Gadenas wished for further wonder. That desire was as strong as a hungry beast.

The Gadenas came to Wenkamui once again, and painted the land with blood.
They don’t care whether they resist or not, they forcibly attacked Wenkamui’s people one by one. They persistently chased after the ones ran away, slaughtered them and ate their flesh. Wenkamui was smeared in blood and it didn’t take much time for it to turn into ruins.

At Wenkamui, Kunigi that carried the crimson gem inserted sword fought well against each one of the Giants. However seeing his comrades fallen one by one, he felt a strong crisis towards the Kagachi race. Kunigi gathered the remaining comrades and gave an indication to get out and escape from Wenkamui.
“The Giants are after this sword, I’ll draw them to me and you all can make an escape. Don’t let the Kagachi’s blood to be perished!” was something that Kunigi must have said. Kunigi directed his comrades towards Junabaru plain while he himself went towards the direction of Junaguni island. This way, not a single soul left in Wenkamui.

600 years later___
Over the long time being uninhabited land, once more a man visited Wenkamui.
Grasp tightly on his hand is the crimson gem inserted sword that once belong to Kunigi. That man name is Gijiri___ the descendant of Kagachi.
Thus way Wenkamui belonged to Kagachi once more.

At Wenkamui, Gijiri deeply researched his ancestor, people ‘bathed in mysterious light’ and why Kagachi all has a mark on their backs and have a unique ability. E dispatched lot of people to ancient ruin at Junaguni island, excavated the relics and brought them all back to Wenkamui.

The one that excavated the ancient ruins together alongside Gijiri are called “Sazaragi” and became the infamous thieves (?)
In the middle of excavation and research, Gijiri thought,”The ability that Kagachi posses is against (?) beyond human intellect. And then, this power, in this world no matter how, is sleeping(?)”
Gijiri researched the connection between the relics from ancient ruin and Kagachi’s ability, and find a way to further enhance Kagachi’s enslavement (?) ability.

This way, what is produced/resulted is ‘Majin’.
‘Majin’ is thought by Gijiri, it is said to be the evolute form of Kagachi.
The advance ‘skill’ and illusion that Majin can utilise, is called sorcery and a very strong power. However to utilise a sorcery a lot of mental/spirit strength is needed. As compoesation Majin lifespan was short.
Gijiri produced a lot of Majin, and before time Wenkamui is called ‘Majin’s village’ (Devil’s Lair in other translation). The research at Devil’s Lair was done in secret between Gijiri and Sazaragi’s member. Therefore Kagachi and Yamaji at Junabar’s plain don’t know the existence of Devil’s Lair at all.

Even amongst the Majin that Gijiri produced, a man named Ido is especially has a strong power. Not just the strength of his sorcery, he also has anti-sorcery ability to neutralize the sorcery of all other Majin. As Gijiri’s right hand man, he lead Wenkamui’s Majins together with other Majin, Miyagi and Yakumo.
Without stopping the research on Majin, the problem to push the power of Sorcery to the extreme, causing hinder to Human body, was gradually started to appear.

The manipulation of life is probably a taboo thing after all.
Majins who have lost its humanity have started to rampage. Because of the extreme sorcery of the Majins, the rampage didn’t stop.
Ido used all of his life force to utilise an ultimate anti-sorcery and thus casted a seal on the whole land of Wenkamui.
Gijiri and the Sazaragi got away from Wenkamui and headed north, afterward they work behind the scene at the centre of Masinowa.
Wenkamui has once again became an inhibited land.

This way Wenkamui has disappear from history, but it left a big thing for Kagachi’s descendant.
______ A living body that surpassed time (immortal).

** the part marked with '?' means it is the part I am most unsure of...
