Notes

  • The jacket features a peach, a bamboo shoot, and a grape situated around Maribel and Renko. These three objects are what Izanagi threw at Izanami's demons while fleeing from them in the Yomi-no-kuni (黄泉の国) (the Land of the Dead).

References

1. ^  Izanagi (伊弉諾/伊邪那岐) is a major male god who appears in Japanese myths. He and his spouse are said to have Izanami bore most of the islands of Japan and many gods. He also begot Amaterasu, Tsukuyomi and Susanoo, the three royal gods who take the most important role in Japanese mythology. Some opinion suggests that the "izana" in the name refers to the word "izanau", meaning "to invite", which ties into the name of track 2.
2. ^  The title of this song is taken from a Japanese proverb, which has a similar meaning as the English saying "goslings lead the geese to water". It implies the idea of something fortunate happening to a person due to an unexpected event/coincidence. The origin of the proverb comes from an unfaithful and greedy old lady who lived near the Zenkou temple. Her neighbor's cow took her cloth, and when she chased it, the cow eventually led her to the temple. Once she was there, she became a worshiper and later entered priesthood. Zenkou Temple itself is in the Nagano prefecture. See here for details. (Japanese)
3. ^  Agartha is the name of a mythical city that is located in the center of the earth in certain hollow earth beliefs. It is often suggested to be inhabited by demons, making it possibly related to Hell of Blazing Fires.
