Story of Evil

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The Story of Evil (悪ノ物語 Aku no Monogatari), is a series of music videos using Yamaha's Vocaloid vocal synthesizer software. It is a collection of 9 songs that intertwine to create the story. They were all made by MOTHY (Master Of The Heavenly Yard), also known as Akuno-P(悪ノp). There are four main novels that go with the series, as well as three extra fanbooks. It's also of note that the series is focused on "Pride", which is one of the Seven deadly sins. Other, less dark themes in the series include Love (Servant of Evil and Regret Message), Pity (Twiright Prank, Daughter of White, and Thousand Year Wiegenlied), Forgiveness (Regret Message and Daughter of White), and Friendship (Daughter of White and Thousand Year Wiegenlied).

History[edit]

The series was written using the Vocaloid software and references various Vocaloid and Utau mascots. Originally the series only focused more on the Crypton Future Media Vocaloids, however as the storyline progressed, Vocaloids from other studios were introduced from Zero-G Ltd, AH Software and Internet Co., Ltd.. The first song of the series, "Daughter of Evil", did not gain much attention when it was uploaded to Nico Nico Douga on April 6, 2008. It was until a few weeks later when the second song of the series, "Servant of Evil (悪ノ召使 Aku no Meshitsukai)", was uploaded it did gain popularity among the Nico Nico Douga users.

The following month a song sung by Rin, "Regret Message (リグレットメッセージ Riguretto Messeeji)" was released, followed by a song sung by Len, "Re_birthday (Zenmai-Jikake no Komoriuta 3)". The release of the song Daughter of White (白ノ娘 Shiro no Musume) on Jan 6, 2010, made it a widely accepted theory and many fans interpret that the song connects these songs to the series. It's been debated on whether Regret Message and Re_Birthday are part of the series, however Akuno-P has just mentioned that it is up to each fan's interpretation and has not officially taken them in the series. However, according to a promo given out on the official page of the novel "Daughter of Evil, Cloiture of Yellow" (悪ノ娘 黄のクロアテュール Aku no Musume Ki no Kuroatyuuru), which is written by mothy and was released on August 10, 2010, "Regret Message" is in the series.[1]

A Theater Play event, based on the songs and the backstory written by mothy on his blog, was shown in Japan during the month of January. An extra song, "Twiright Prank" (トワイライトプランク Towairaito Puranku), composed by mothy and sung by Shimoda Asami, was used in the play. Shimoda Asami, the voice actress which the voices of Kagamine Rin and Len was borrowed from, did a cover of the first three songs in the series. Later "Twiright Prank" was covered by Rin and Len.

"Daughter of Evil", "Servant of Evil", "Regret Message", "Daughter of White", and "Twiright Prank" are in mothy's album "Evils Kingdom".

Plot overview[edit]

This is a basic plot story which Akuno-P wrote for the songs in the series before he created "Daughter of Evil" and gave out on his blog. He organized the plot into 8 chapters, depicted chapter1, 4, 6, and 7 in "Daughter of Evil" and depicted chapter2, 3, and 5 in "Servant of Evil".[2] Later, he announced he wrote another plot story with more detailed storyline and settings which are based on this.[3]

Chapter 1 -Daughter of Evil-[edit]

"Once upon a time there was a kingdom. A wise king who built the kingdom in his lifetime was taken with illness and a queen of the sweet voice, who was his wife, ruled the land instead of him. She governed for the betterment of people, rather better than him, and the kingdom enjoyed prosperity. Although her reign continued after his death, she suffered from the same affliction and died. The one left behind was her "only daughter", who was brought up in comfort, having great-flamboyant furniture, a beautiful and fine horse and a servant who looked like her and was willing to do whatever she wanted. She took her mother's place and reigned the kingdom. However, she wasn't a valley girl at all and her dominion was far from good. She imposed heavy taxes on the people and purged the ones who did not abide by her orders. Gradually people came to call the country as "the kingdom of evil and cruelty" and the princess as "daughter of evil"."

Chapter 2 -A Mighty Famine Strikes-[edit]

Substantially "daughter of evil" was at the position of a queen, however, out of deference to her mother the queen she decided she would rule the kingdom as a princess and would not take over the throne until she came of age. One day, a mighty famine suddenly struck the kingdom and many people lost their lives for hunger except some haves. Some lieges told her how people were impoverished and offered their opinions to provide relief for them, but she just said, "If they don't have bread, they had better eat cake!" (a reference to the apocryphal line supposedly spoken by Marie Antoinette; "Qu'ils mangent de la brioche")[4] sef

Chapter 3 -A Feud Between A Swordswoman And The Princess-[edit]

Since then, there was no one who offered one's opinion to the princess except a loyal subject who had served since her mother's period of rule. He was called "a commander of royal guards who has a name of lion". He was the only man that remonstrated with her and offered counsel to her to help the people. He was also a hero who had saved the kingdom before and still hold on power. Finally he and lieges who supported him unilaterally made a decision to save the people from hunger. The princess got angry because the meals at the royal palace became meager and the things went on behind her back. One night, she had the commander to come to her own room in the palace. On the next morning, there was his dead body at a riverside on the fringe of the kingdom and beside it "the servant who looked like the princess" was standing. He said, "No one can disobey her now". Few hours later, "a girl in red clothes" dissolved in tears by the dead body. She secretly vowed revenge against the princess for her father.[5]

Chapter 4 -Jealousy And A War-[edit]

The fierce princess was in love with "a man of blue", who was a prince of a kingdom across the sea. She sent out her liege to propose marriage, however, he replied "I have the one whom I love in the land of green. So I cannot marry you." The princess got furious with jealousy and thought to kill "the woman of green whom he loved", but she did not know who she was. One day, she called away a minister and ordered in a quiet voice; "If you cannot find out the woman of green, destroy all the land of green". The war between two countries broke out overnight. Many houses were burnt and many people lost their lives. People suffered and mourned, however, the princess would not know it and kept living in the palace with grace as always; "Oh, it's time for a snack"[6]

Chapter 5 -What Happened To Blue And Green-[edit]

Pathetically, the land of green was destroyed. However, the woman of green was still alive because "the servant who looked like the princess" had hidden her in a well, which had protected her from fires. He was also in love with her. He was thinking that since the princess did not know the woman's face, it would be better to take her to where "the man of blue" was after things were settled down and the princess would not try to destroy the kingdom where the one whom she loved lived. One day the princess handed over a small glass bottle to the servant. When the princess wanted to ask something important to him, she always did that way without saying directly and orally. It had become a habit since the servant had told her a legend. And what was written on a parchment which he took out of the bottle was "Liquidate her". "The man of blue" found the one whom he loved had become dead and cold in the well. He secretly vowed revenge against the princess.[7]

Chapter 6 -A Rebellion-[edit]

The people abruptly rose in rebellion against the princess of evil. They were led by "a swordswoman in a red armor" and "a man with a mask and blue hair". The anger of "the woman of red", "the man of blue" and the people covered the entire kingdom and the rebellious troops defeated the royal army which had severalfold men under. Fortunately for the troops that the army was impoverished by the recent war, they surrounded the royal palace, and all the ministers and servants ran away. The one left behind was pretty, lily and cruel "daughter of evil". When she was almost captured, she shouted "You, insolent fellow!". The princess was arrested at last and that was the end of the kingdom.[8]

Chapter 7 -The Last Moment-[edit]

The execution of the princess was decided to be conducted on 3 o'clock in the afternoon when bells of the church would ring. "She" was put in a jail and no one knew what "she" was thinking. People gathered to a square where a guillotine was ready. The bells of the church rang and a blade fell. The last words "she" said was neither words of begging for "her" life nor apologizing to people, but "her" favorite phrase; "Oh, it's time for a snack". The execution was conducted, and everyone thought "the daughter of evil" was dead and everything was over.[9]

Chapter 8 -Epilogue-[edit]

Few days after the execution a rumor circulated, which told that the one who had been killed on that day was a scapegoat and the princess was still alive. In a town, at a harbor, the one who stood, hiding oneself from prying eyes, was the princess disguised as the servant; "I'm sorry…Len". This is a story of once upon a time.[10]

Novel[edit]

A novel titled Daughter of Evil, Closure of Yellow (悪ノ娘 黄のクロアテュール, Aku no Musume Ki no Kuroatyuuru), which was written by Akuno-P(mothy), was released on August 10, 2010.[11][12] On his blog, mothy announced that the novel is based on the songs he wrote and the plot story he offered for the theater play. The storyline is different in several respects and there are some differences in settings.[13] Most of personages' names are the same as those used in the play ("Rillianne", "Allen", etc.) and more characters appear in the novel. The illustrations are drawn by Ichika, Yunomi-P and 憂. A sequel titled Daughter of Evil, Wiegenlied of Green was released on February 24, 2011.[14]

Plot Summary[edit]

Note: the storyline is mostly as same as the basic plot story. More detailed settings and hidden stories are written.
A vast kingdom called Lucifenia, whose popular name was the "Kingdom of Yellow", was ruled by a tyrannical princess named Rillianne, a fourteen-year-old. Under her absolute monarchism, everything was exploited from people and the ones who did not obey her were executed without mercy. Allen, a servant who looked like her, was always beside the princess who was called "Daughter of Evil" by the people. The Servant and Princess were the same age, as they were secretly twins. The princess's selfishness caused a war and many deaths, and their secret gear of fate was going to spin madly. This entire story takes place in EC Year 500.

Theater Play[edit]

Daughter of Evil ~Gemini of Charm~[edit]

A Theater Play event, entitled Daughter of Evil ~Gemini of Charm~ (悪ノ娘~凄艶のジェミニ~, Aku no Musume ~Seien no Jiemini~), opened from January 27, 2010 to January 31, 2010 by X-QUEST. Beyond background tracks for the play, it features covers of the velvet mixes of Akuno-P's three songs by Shimoda Asami, the voice actress who had lent her voice for Kagamine Rin and Len, and a new song called "Twiright Prank", composed by mothy and performed by Shimoda Asami. The original soundtrack, which includes instrumental songs used in the play and the four vocal songs, was released on February 3, 2010.[17]

The script was written by Hidekatsu Tokunaga, a host of the play and also a member of X-QUEST, with his own interpretation based on the plot story which Akuno-P offered for the play. Unlike in the songs, in which the characters are not named (fans usually assign the characters names depending on the singer Vocaloid), each character is given a unique name by Akuno-P; for instance, the princess is "Rillianne", the servant is "Allen", Kaito's character is "Kyle", and Miku's character is "Michaela". However, there are many differences between storylines and settings by Akuno-P and those by Hidekatsu Tokunaga. Akuno-P was not involved with the script's writing in any way and the song "Daughter of White" had not been created yet when it was written.[18][19] Also a lot of Hidekatsu Tokunaga's original parodies and episodes are added to the script.[20][21][22][23]

God of Evil[edit]

Another Theater Play event, entitled God of Evil (悪ノ神, Aku no Kami), was held on April 11, 2010 by Drama Group Brioche. Drama Group Brioche was established by fans to make a theater play of the three songs in the series.[24] The Drama Group Brioche made a big success in God of Evil or ' xxx of Evil ' in short. It had been sold to many countries worldwide.

Song List[edit]

  1. "Daughter of Evil", the first song of the series, was released on April 6, 2008. It uses the voice of Kagamine Rin and details the basic story of a cruel princess (Rilianne) ruling in a corrupt manner, using her servant (Allen) to order the fall of the green kingdom after the man she loves is found to be in love with a woman from there, and subsequently "being executed". Labeled as one of the Freesis Fables.
  2. "Servant of Evil", the second song of the series, released on April 29, 2008. It mainly uses the voice of Kagamine Len, though a small portion near the end of the song includes Rin's voice. It details the story of how the twins were separated when they were very small and how the only thing of Rin Len could ever see was her soft, kind side, and of how he met Michaela and fell in love with her, and eventually traded places with the princess to be executed. Before dying, he wishes they could be reborn and play together again. Labeled as one of the Freesis Fables.
  3. "Regret Message", the third of the series to be released (uploaded May 25, 2008), tells of Riliane's feelings a year after "Servant of Evil", related to the plot story which Akuno-P posted on his blog. Rilianne realizes that it had been her own selfishness that had killed her brother, and the wish she made was for her and Allen to be reborn as twins again.
  4. "Re_birthday" is the third song in the "Zenmai-Jikake no Komoriuta " series. It was released on Dec 27, 2008. In this song, the servant is alone in a dark room not being able to see. He hears a voice and starts to remember the evil that he has done. Then his arms are in red handcuffs (representing blood shed) and his ankles are in blue chains (representing the tears spilled). Suddenly he hears a melody of someone's voice coming from somewhere ('Lu li la, lu li la,' sung by the Clockworker's Doll in the song Master of the Court and Capriccio Farce). He is forgiven for his actions in the past and was reborn. It's known as the answer song to Regret message, both containing [Re] for this reason.[25] However, officially, it is part of the Clockwork Lullaby series.
  5. "Daughter of White", the fourth song of the series, released on January 6, 2010. The official English title of the song by Akuno-P is "Bystander".[26] Unlike the previous songs sung by Rin and Len, this is sung by Yowane Haku using Hatsune Miku, detailing the events of the series from the viewpoint of a new character, which had never been mentioned before in the previous songs. The song details a viewpoint of a civilian of the country of green before, during, and after the war via scenes being shown. It's mothy's longest song, over eight minutes in length.
  6. "Twiright Prank" was originally composed by mothy for the Theater Play event. It was performed by Shimoda Asami. The song shows a small snapshot of the princess and servant's lives as small children, avoiding a mysterious "demon" in the twilight. The demon says she is hungry, and the two, having buried a chest in the sea, are running from her. The two decide to "split" day and night between each other, Riliane being "day" and Alexiel being "night". Alexiel eventually realizes the demon will be always hungry no matter what and decides to share his snack with the demon. In return, the demon tells Alexiel a secret about the ocean (an incomplete version of the legend of the glass bottle). Alexiel promises to later share this secret with Rilianne. Though he has already released its cover with Rin and Len on his "EVILS FOREST" album, he uploaded it on Nicovideo on August 3, 2010. The official English title of the song by Akuno-P is "Day and night".[26] He commented, on his blog, that he purposefully changed the spelling of "Twilight" to "Twiright" in the video he uploaded. Also he explained he did that because "right" means "correct" and "normal", "twi" carries the meaning of "twist", the ones who are performing it are "R"in and "L"en, and the prince gave a sweet to a "demon" while the princess did not in the song.[27]
  7. "The Wooden Girl ~Millennium of Wiegenlied~", the seventh song in the series. It's from the view of Michaela, the girl that Clarith finds unconscious in Daughter of White. It details more events and is second longest in the series. Michaela, who was a spirit, was transformed into a human by Elluka Clockworker. She is taken in by Clarith, and the two run away to a new village where they become servants. At a banquet, Michaela meets the "king from the country over the sea"(Kyle Marlon) This meeting sparks the fated war mentioned in the other songs, and ends with Michaela dying at the bottom of a well and wishing that she could be reborn, but she doesn't get to finish her sentence. It tells the truth of the lullaby that is heard throughout the chronicles(Lu li la/La lu li la la la/Lu li la lu li- la lu li lu li la) and how it's really a lullaby of destruction.
  8. "Handbeat Clocktower", This song happen 5 years after the events in Daughter of Evil in EC Year 505. It's sung by KAITO and Kaai Yuki. The song is from the view of Kyle Marlon, the king of the Kingdom of Marlon. In this song, it's revealed that the one who planned all the bad things in the Daughter of Evil is his mother, the Dowager Queen of Marlon, Prim Marlon. She is waiting in the Clocktower of the Castle of Hedgehog in the Kingdom of Marlon and laughing over everyone's sadness. Kyle considers her as a devil because of her cruelty. It also reveals Michaela's killer as Ney Futapie or Ney Marlon, Kyle's younger sister. She is mentioned as the 'Handbeat Clocktower' and Gretel's reincarnation. In the end of the song, it is seen that she killed Prim and holds possession of the Vessel of Gluttony (The Glass of Conchita). Kyle (along with Yukina) end this song by singing "In the top of the clocktower, you sit on a chair, decaying. Are you a devil or someone who I once called 'mother'?"
  9. "Kept Waiting for a Response", In this song, Rilliane (now known as Rin) is now an old nun who is always smiling. She adopted and takes care of the orphans in the chapel near the sea. Even if they all live in poverty, they're all happy. One of the orphans strongly resemble len. Rin, at this point, is sick and knew that the end is nearing. All the kids she adopted come to the side of her bed and say that they will do whatever Rin's wish, no matter how difficult it is. Rin smiled and answer that she wants a response for her letter that she wrote when she was young and wanted to know if it reached the receiver and if her sins were forgiven. All the orphans separated and looked all over Evillious Region. The orphan that resembled Allen found an old painter who told him the truth of Rin and that the one whom Rin sent the letter to isn't alive anymore. Right before her death, the orphan passed a letter to her. She glanced at it and said 'thank you.' The truth of her sins were only realized once the true end had taken place. It is "proof" that one of the orphans is len, because that it is Len who sang the song. However, this song is not official canon, rather a vague conclusion to the series.

Re-releases[edit]

There has been a number of new releases of the songs. One of them is the ACT2 version of the first two songs, which supposedly features an improved version of the Kagamine Rin and Len VOCALOID2 program (however, mothy believes these mixes to be inferior).

Another version includes the "velvet mixes" of "Daughter of Evil", which were released on December 27, 2009, in celebration of Rin and Len's birthday. The two songs feature artwork from artists put together by mothy, which confirm certain elements in the plot. A "velvet mix" of "Regret Message" was released on mothy's album "prelude to forest".

38 keywords are hidden in the original videos of "Daughter of Evil ~velvet mix~". Also the same number of lines are shown in that of "Servant of Evil ~velvet mix~". Each keyword and line can be a pair and if they are put together, there will be 38 dialogues of characters in the story, including characters who do not appear in the songs of the series. Those can be clue to interpret the story of "Daughter of Evil" series deeper.
Some examples (note that they are not in chronological order in the story): keywords hidden in Daughter of Evil ~velvet mix~ / "a line hidden in Servant of Evil~velvet mix~"
