LyricsEdit

"Cras numquam scire" Full lyrics
Kanji Rōmaji English translation
Lune oqui cr pos tatumn.  Lune oqui cr pos tatumn.  The moon speaks faintly.
Homu aude cr dis Soenan.  Homu aude cr dis Soenan.  In a voice audible to no one. 
Cure Tint le vid siesta.  Cure Tint le vid siesta.  The repeating rising and falling of the tides.
Mimo scap ler nox grad.  Mimo scap ler nox grad. Are the scene of the moon's vanishing memory.
Astr scrib cr pos arcan.  Astr scrib cr pos arcan.  The stars record arcanely.
Homu scire cr dis Abesn.  Homu scire cr dis Abesn.  In a script decipherable to no one. 
Infor Sintac le tabu vern.  Infor Sintac le tabu vern.  From the swirls of infinite words.
Gigan Leinau le nascour.  Gigan Leinau le nascour. Billions of books are born.
Cae lie imam plati nor main.  Cae lie imam plati nor main.  To me, the sky is too vast.
Tempo le imam celer or mint.  Tempo le imam celer or mint.  And time is too swift. 
Nihil dis scio Igo rina nis.  Nihil dis scio Igo rina nis.  Without knowing anything.
Colle Sintac mi  Colle Sintac mi  I'm gathering words in vain
Sina cader plutien.  Sina cader plutien. which only end up rotting in the earth.
Igo clama re nihil minus.  Igo clama re nihil minus.  Yet still, I will clamor. 
Dis sciren ex Soenan.  Dis sciren ex Soenan.  Not even knowing why, I raise my voice. 
Conti affir mia Celest.  Conti affir mia Celest.  May my echo continue up into the celestial space. 
Nova Sol ie rad four.  Nova Sol ie rad four. Then, a new sun will eventually rise as well.
月は静かに語る  tsuki wa shizuka ni kataru  The moon speaks faintly.
だれにも聴こえぬ声で  dare ni mo kikoenu koe de  In a voice audible to no one. 
繰り返す潮の満ち引き  kurikaesu shio no michihiki  The repeating rising and falling of the tides.
消えゆく記憶の情景  kieyuku kioku no joukei Are the scene of the moon's vanishing memory.
星は密かに記す  hoshi wa hisoka ni shirusu  The stars record arcanely.
だれにも解らぬ文字で  dare ni mo wakaranu moji de  In a script decipherable to no one. 
無限の言葉が渦巻き  mugen no kotoba ga uzumaki  From the swirls of infinite words.
千億の本が産まれた  sen'oku no hon ga umareta Billions of books are born.
僕には空が広すぎて  boku ni wa sora ga hirosugite  To me, the sky is too vast.
時の刻みは速すぎて  toki no kizami wa hayasugite  And time is too swift. 
何も知らぬまま虚しく  nani mo shiranu mama munashiku  Without knowing anything.
集めた言葉も  atsumeta kotoba mo  I'm gathering words in vain, 
土の中に朽ちるだけ  tsuchi no naka ni kuchiru dake which only end up rotting in the earth.
それでも僕は叫ぶ  sore de mo boku wa sakebu  Yet still, I will clamor. 
わけも解らず声を上げる  wake mo wakarazu koe o ageru  Not even knowing why, I raise my voice. 
せめて響きは天にとどけ  semete hibiki wa ten ni todoke  May my echo continue up into the celestial space. 
日もやがて昇るだろう  hi mo yagate noboru darou Then, a new sun will eventually rise as well.
卑屈な闇が答えた  hikutsu na yami ga kotaeta  The despicable darkness answered me
未来を見た者はいないと  mirai o mita mono wa inai to  saying that no one has ever seen the future.
僕は虚空に手をのばし  boku wa kokuu ni te o nobashi  I reach my hands into the empty sky
冷たい風をつかむ  tsumetai kaze o tsukamu and grasp the cold wind.
絶望よ吹き抜けろ!  zetsubou yo fukinukero!  Oh, despair, blow through me! 
夢も苦悩もすべて過去へ  yume mo kunou mo subete kako e  All dreams and agonies will become the past
地上はまどろむ薄明の中  chijou wa madoromu hakumei no naka  in the faint twilight above the snoozing earth.
僕は前に進む  boku wa mae ni susumu  I walk forward 
まだ見ぬ明日へ mada minu ashita e towards the tomorrow that's not yet visible.

Dantalian no Shoka Opening - HD


The opening shows London, Hugh's home from his childhood and his time when we was a World War I pilot. His golden key appears next to his gloves, before a book telling Hugh and Dalian's adventures. After that, Hugh is having a break from driving. He's next to his car, holding Dalian's parasol. She is happily eating a sweet. Camilla is in front of a mirror, trying some clothes. Armand is blushing while walking with a bouquet in his hands, possibly going on a date. Then, Hugh is shown carrying Dalian and shooting the Golem. Flamberge and Hal appear, then Rasiel and her key-keeper soon after. Dalian reveals the keyhole on her chest and the girl within the Labyrinth Library sends a Phantom Book to the outside world. The latter hold hands with Hugh, who oscillates between his adult and child form. Finally, Hugh arrives at his grandfather's mansion and meets Dalian for the first time. The book about Hugh and Dalian's adventures is closed. Some Phantom Books are shown.

TriviaEdit

  • The opening isn't shown in episodes 1 and 12. Nevertheless, the song is used in both cases.
