Somehow I’d say the song plays at the end of summer, although there’s no specific season connected with it. Thinking about it, it suits all seasons some way or another. There always comes a warm feeling with it though.

My favorite track on “Komano Eeru” (despite the Engrish)! I’m not sure what else to translate from this album (maybe DARK NEXT?), but I’ll make a poll on my Twitter!

Aaand another ship emerged!
As you might know, Marisa put a straw hat on a random Jizo statue in Imperishable Night. (Marisa claims it was Alice’s doing, but let’s be serious here.) As far as I know, it wasn’t officially stated Narumi is the Jizo statue from back then, only that Marisa and her know each other. (Most likely because they both live in the Forest of Magic.) It’s a nice headcanon though!

1) “ハ子ヲトリ ケニヤサハナム” (hane odori keniyasahanamu)

Keniyasahanam” is a spell used during the “tengu frightening” ceremony at the Jogyo-do on Mt. Hiei where Matara-jin is enshrined. At the front door of the shrine, understandable sutras are read. But at the backdoor, the sutras read are complete nonsense.
During that ceremony, they also perform the “Hane Odori” at the backdoor. The literal translation would be Leap Dance, but it is much more than that – Satono and Mai dance it. (So you could say it’s a completely madness driven dance.)
As I mentioned previously, the ceremony serves the purpose to scare off tengu. Since they are said to steal wisdom, this is to protect the shrine.
Fun fact: “ハ子ヲトリ” can also be read as “hane o tori” [Plucking feathers]. Tengu are mightless without them!
2) “om namas (insert god here)” is the most popular Hindu Mantra. It basically means: “Adoration to (insert god here)”.
3) You probably know Okina Matara is based off of Matari-jin by now. There is not much information about this God (it’s close to impossible to find a good source on English), so he’s also referred to as “secret god”. Fitting for Okina!
