ヒナタ(Hinata) ー 高橋広樹 (Takahashi Hiroki)
Thank you to Mitsu for the scans and the lyrics!
As a result of something, you decide to poison yourself and visit Hiiragi Mansion. When you do, Hinata who introduces himself as SEVENTH HEAVEN appears. He tells you that even if you take poison, you will most likely suffer but not die. He tells you that he, part of SEVENTH HEAVEN, can use the power of song, and let you die with certainty. You decide to follow him.
You end up passing time with Hinata until the next full moon. Hinata, who has interests in human, takes a liking to you and invites you out for fun. Fun times pass in a blink of an eye. One day, Hinata asks “If I was a human and said that I wanted to die with you, would you have allowed me to double suicide?”
Surprisingly enough, the words used this time are simple. Simple yet hold so much meaning. Hinata doesn’t call you anything weird so all is good. =3
Track 01 – Drama I
*Bell Tolls* *Glass bottle clinks*
[0:12] Hey wait. Don’t move. You can’t drink poison and die. Rethink it. That’s right. Stay still. Give me that bottle, okay? Don’t struggle, please. I don’t want to use force. You’ll listen to me right? Come on, it’s okay.
*Takes bottle of poison*
[0:54] Thank you. Thank god. When you take poison, you can die in your sleep. But that’s only if it succeeds. If usually you just throw up and that’s it. You’ll be in pain but you won’t die. Did you choose poison knowing that? Did you bet on life somewhere in your heart and only wished for death as a joke? I know it’s not true. You definitely do wish for death from the bottom of your heart.
[1:37]Ah~ Your eyes are showing such pain. I understand, you’ve suffered a lot haven’t you? To the point that you’d throw your life away. However, if you really want to die then you can’t use medicine or the like. You have to do it in a way that’s definite. It’s a once in a lifetime event.
[2:10] Hm? *Chuckles* You can see that I have no intention at all of telling you to not die. I respect your decision to die. If it was me, I can let you die beautifully and definitely. Hmm~ You don’t try to run even if I say things like that to you. You really have been enchanted by death. It’s okay, I know it well. Because death is the final hope, no matter what others say.
[2:54] Ah. My apologies, I have yet to introduce myself. I am Hinata. I bring about death to people, to you. That’s right, I’m a shinigami. *Chuckles* I guess it’s hard to believe even if I say I am. I don’t look astounding one at all. I don’t wear a black shinigami robe, nor do I have a scythe to take your life. But you know, whether you choose to believe me or not, I am a shinigami. I am just an existence that only knows how to deliver death. *Chuckles* But I have a power that other shinigami don’t have.
*Moves in closer*
[3:49] You know, my songs have the power of removing the pain and can send you off with a feeling of pleasure. Even within the shinigami, only seven of us, SEVENTH HEAVEN, have this power. But it irks me to no end to be grouped together with those people. Well, whether it’s fortunate or unfortunate, if it’s for your sake, I would love to use this power I’ve been given.
[4:28] Why? Well, you might not realise it but a pure, sweet and loveable scent is coming from your soul. That’s right. You’ve been hurt to no end and wet your cheeks and before anyone knew, you wished for death. You get hurt and tire because you’re kind. You couldn’t heal yourself with anything and like that, you’ve come to the end of your life. I can’t leave someone like that alone. You don’t have to suffer from reality anymore. In the very end, be selfish, be greedy, and wish to be drowned in pleasure.
[5:32] Now, don’t hesitate. I don’t intend to scare you but to have seen me mean that if you die, not accepting the power, then you will become a soul that continues to linger in between this and that world. It could be forever. If that is your wish then I won’t force you. If it isn’t, then please believe me. Thank you for agreeing. I’m happy. I’ll let you pass on immediately. Ah, if there are a few final words you wish to say then please do.
[6:30] What’s this? The moon tonight is weird. Why? *Sigh* It’s the works of Kanade, isn’t it? Tch. Ah, I’m sorry. Could you please listen to what I’m about to say? Here, look. Look at the sky. The moonlight is being obstructed by the fog right? It seems that the door to that world has been closed tonight. So, the next time the door will open will be on the night of the next full moon. When that time comes, I’ll let you die gorgeously and without pain with my song. Until then, will you pass time with me in this mansion? *Smiles* I’m glad. I don’t want to see a pure girl like you suffer. I won’t ever hurt you. Let’s make it the best ending. So good, that you want to die. Come on, let’s go.
*Walks towards the mansion*
Track 02 – Drama II
[0:02] Ah! You finally woke up. Sorry for coming in without permission. I did knock though. When I took a look inside, you were tossing and turning so I was worried. That’s why I’m snuggled up to you like this.
*You grab the blanket*
[0:25] Huh? Why are you covering your face with the blanket? I wanted to look at you for longer. Could it be that you’re embarrassed? Am I wrong? *Smiles* Hmm, this is hard. *Chuckles* So, how do you feel waking up? *Chuckle* Did you think that meeting me would just be a dream after a night’s sleep? That’s a pity. Hey, will you give me your hand for a bit?
*Takes your hand*
[1:04] Here, touch my cheek. It doesn’t have the warmth that humans do but this coldness tells you that I am definitely here in front of you right? *Chuckles* You know, I really want to get to know you. I mean, we’re going to live together anyway. It’s not bad idea to stay like this forever but there’s actually a place I want to take you to. *Chuckles* I won’t tell you where. If I tell you then it’ll be boring. Come on, let’s go. Here, get up.
[2:00] Here we are. *Chuckles* You look surprised that there is a Mirror Room in this mansion. But it’s really only a large hall. Apparently in the human world, they hold dance parties in halls like this. *Chuckles* But this room has more interior. You’ll come right? Well, even if you say you don’t want to, I really want to take you there. It’s fine, there’s nothing to be afraid of. Just think of it as a child’s adventure. Now, close your eyes. I’ll pull you along.
[3:00] We’re here. Ah, no. Don’t open your eyes yet. If I say you can’t then you can’t. Not yet. Just a little longer. Even if I let go of your hand, keep your eyes closed. That’s right. Ah! I told you you’re not allowed to open your eyes~. I wanted to look at you…for a little longer. Huh? Did I anger you? But if I didn’t do this, then I didn’t think you’d let me look at you properly.
[3:47] *Sigh* But this is troubling. To think your angry expression is so adorable as well…I really do want to know more…about you. Now, look around the room. No matter where you look it’s just mirrors, mirrors and mirrors. That’s right. This room was made for fun. Why do you look so worried? Are you scared of looking at yourself? It’s true that you can’t hide anything from the you in the mirror. Of course you’d feel like that. I do too. But now, you’re here and I’m surrounded by so many of you, somehow it feels really nice. Hey, let’s hold hands once more. May I have your hand?
*Reaches out but hits a mirror*
[5:00] *Chuckles* What a pity~ The person who you reached out for was the me in the mirror. You fell for it, didn’t you? Ah! Are you angry again? Yup, you really are cute. I want to tease you even more. Alright, I’ve caught you. I won’t let you go for a while. It’s your fault. It’s because you make such a cute expression in front of me. *Chuckles* But don’t worry, I won’t do anything more than this. Now, let’s go back. I actually want to trouble you some more but if I overdo it I’ll be hated. That’s not what I want. Alright.
*Starts walking back*
[6:05] Hey, can I ask something? If, I’m only asking what if, I was a human and said that I wanted to die with you, what would you do? Would you have allowed me to double suicide? Hm? *Sighs* I’ve troubled you again haven’t I? Don’t worry about it. I only asked out of interest. Come on, let’s go back.
Track 03 – Drama III
*Crockery clinks* *Door opens and closes* *Pan sizzles*
[0:09] Oh, it’s you. What’s wrong? Ah, I’m…it’s like what you’re seeing, I’m cooking. *Flips food in pan* Well, shinigami don’t have senses so if we don’t feel hunger then we obviously don’t have taste. But, how do I put this…even so, I like cooking. Shion laughs at me telling me to stop pretending to be a human. We can just leave that passion-crazy idiot alone. That parasite. *Chuckles* Besides, apparently more than the other shinigami I have something similar to human senses. It’s really only minor but I feel like I know what things taste like. It might be accurate to say that I can…feel…the flavour. I explain it well…This hamburger steak looks burnt but it’s fine. I know that it tastes good.
*Places food on the table*
[1:25] There you go, dig in. Can I watch you eat it? I’m sure you’ll be adorable. Don’t hold back and eat. Go ahead.
[1:42] Go on. Uhm? You’re not continuing to eat at all…is there something wrong? Could it be that you hated it? That’s enough, it’s fine. It’s true that no matter how I can feel it, how I think I can feel it, I can’t know that it’s the same as what you humans taste. But at the very least don’t you think that well-done, burnt, extremely sweet meat sound delicious?
[2:29] You don’t? Eh? What? This is weird. Maybe I didn’t say it well enough. But! Well, don’t worry about it. Um, please forget this completely. Otherwise I will want to die even more even though I can’t die. Huh? What do I mean?
[3:00] Shinigami can’t die. No matter how much we wish to die, we cannot. Embarrassment and sins, everything just increases to the point that it’s terrible. That’s why at the very least, forget what just happened. Please don’t make me say any more. I’ll hate myself even more.
[3:34] If I let the other SEVENTH HEAVEN know, it’ll become something unthinkable. Those people love finding my faults and laughing at them. Akira says that he’s on my side but I don’t want to be grouped with them. Especially with Yuuri! I hate him. He’s repulsive. Just saying his name makes me loathe him.
[4:01] But we all have the same blood flowing in us. All that stuff about songs and what not, in the end shinigami’s, SEVENTH HEAVEN’s blood, can only kill people. *Chuckles* Ah. I’m sorry for talking just about myself. I’m going to go back to my room for a bit. I’m going to cool my head down a little.
*Knocks on door*
[4:42] Yes? Come in.
*Door opens and closes*
[4:55] *Sigh* I just slept for a while on my bed. What’s wrong? You were worried about me so you came? Heeh, I see. Ah, no. That’s not what I mean. I’m really happy. I’m glad but…if I’m happy then the parting will be painful. What should I do? I’m stumped. Well, anyhow, I’ve calmed down a lot just by seeing you. Thank you very much. You’re always so kind. While we’re at it, why don’t we have a talk? Here, sit down.
[5:54] Hey, I want to listen to your voice. Huh? Why do you become quiet? Ah~ What a pity. Then I’ll talk about something. *Sigh* What would be good? Hm? About the shinigami? I see…where should I start? It’s hard to put it into words. To tell you the truth, I probably don’t know much about shinigami yet. But when I look at the rest of SEVENTH HEAVEN I get this thought that they have existed much longer than I have and that wouldn’t they have cursed themselves before. Themselves that can only kill people. But perhaps they’ve existed for so long that they’ve forgotten that as well.
[7:23] *Chuckles* Should we stop there? It’s not a really pleasant topic. Eh? Ah, why did we become shinigami? Well…I don’t know about the other shinigami but I from the extent of my memories, when I became aware of it, I was already a shinigami. Like how you humans are alive when you are aware of it. That’s right. It’s like how you humans are humans without reason, there’s no reason as to why I am a shinigami. There is no reason. Because I m that type of being, because I am born like that without reason that I keep killing people. *Chuckles* Ah, I’m sorry that I can only give you such an answer.
*Clock chimes* *Thunder roars and rain falls*
[8:38] Ah. It’s already this late? I’m okay. Thank you. Ah but um…I have just one favour to ask. Of course I won’t force you to. Will you stay by my side until I fall asleep? *Smiles sadly* You wouldn’t want to right? *Smiles* Thank you.
[9:19] Can I…hold your hand? Hey, tell me. What does it feel like to be able to die? To be able to choose your death, to be able to choose your own end…Is this the first time you’ve been asked something like that? I guess so. Humans who can die probably won’t even think about it. But I’m different. I’m not human. I’m sick of being a shinigami. I’ve just kept on killing. Hey, please, when the night of the full moon comes, take me with you. In truth, I want to go to that place where sins won’t build up, immediately. Is it wrong to wish for that? Even if there is no future, if I’m with you…laughing…
*Falls asleep* *Thunder rolls*
Track 04 – Drama IV
*Painful breathing* *Hurried footsteps echo*
[0:11] I’m sorry, I’m just felt dizzy and fell over. I’m okay. I’ll get better…soon. Ah, what happened? I have just a little human senses left in me so I gave it a try. The poison that I had taken away from you. Why? I’m happy that I can be with you but you will disappear. It’s distressing. I will never be able to end this sadness. If that’s the case, then I’d rather die. Am I weird? I know, that I can’t die. I know that more than anyone else, I can’t die. That’s right, it’s as I expected. I can’t die. *Grabs you* You wouldn’t understand. You, who can end all by just dying won’t understand!
[1:35] *Gasps* I’m sorry. *Releases you* This is embarrassing, to let you see me in such a miserable state. I want to die. *Sigh* I’m okay now, as you can see. Please don’t worry about me and go on your way. Aren’t you going to go? Why? You’ll stay by my side until I’m feeling well again? Ahh, geez. You really are good-natured. Thank you very much. But even then, you’ll leave me behind and die. I’m sorry. I was joking.
[2:44] *Sigh* Really, if only my meaning of life was you…That’s right, how good would it be if I existed to protect you? I don’t need anything else. I’d live with you, to sprout the life I live and then in the end we’ll both…If I can’t have that then at the very least I wish I had to power to save you. Why am I a shinigami? Why? Why do you think so?
[3:30] Hey, I have something I want to ask of you. Please…kill me. Of course, I won’t die but more than the other shinigami I still have some human senses. Even if it’s just a little, I want experience being on the edge of dying while I still have those senses. That’s the only thing I have to cleanse me of my sins. So *grabs hands* please…kill me. With those hands of yours. Even if I ask you to stop, don’t.
*Struggles with you*
[4:22] Come on, please hold my body down. Please. Please!
*You press him down*
[4:35] That’s right, thank you. I’m happy. I’m sorry for asking you to do something so terrible but you’re the one…I want to be killed…by your hands, by your beautiful hands. I swear I’ll forget about this when tomorrow comes. So please!
*Moves your hands*
[5:10] Go on, please choke me. Please, I make me at ease. *Squeezes* More. I can’t die with that. Do it like you mean to kill me. Kill me…Kill me! I’m a shinigami! That’s not enough… *Chokes* That’s right, yes. *Chokes* But…more…more…more…more! I want to stay like this…for a whole night. *Chokes* I feel like I could die…Why did you loosen your grip? To think that you wouldn’t understand my wish to die. *Chokes* Ah. I’m…sorry. Sorry.
*Thunder rumbles and rain falls*
Track 05 – Drama V
*Birds twitter* *Footsteps echo*
[0:04] Ah, you were here! If you’re going to go somewhere, tell me or else I’ll end up look for you. So what are you doing it? Ahh, the weather’s good so you went on a walk. I see. Hey, I have a special suggestion…I can’t say it out loud. Lend me your ear.
[0:38] Hey, why we get out of this estate? Of course, we’re not supposed to leave the mansion but it’s okay. It’ll be fine if you’re with me. I’ll make sure that the other shinigami won’t realise. I want to go to various places and look at a range of things with you. I won’t let anyone complain. Come on, let’s go!
*Takes you out of the mansion*
[1:15] Here, this way. Let’s hide over there, inside. Come on.
Don’t, we have to be quiet. Ahh…alright! *Runs* *Laughs* Ahh~ So funny. I was told I wasn’t allowed to leave the mansion so I did as I was told, but to think going out was this easy. *Chuckles* My heart’s still beating quickly. Yours is too? Ahh, this is no good. It’s just too funny.
[2:10] *Sighs* To think the human world had so many interesting things. Movies, amusement parks and night parades…Time really does past quickly. The sun has already set. But I don’t want to go back yet. You too? *Chuckles* I see. You don’t laugh much at the mansion but you are actually a really cheerful woman. I should have take you out earlier. *Smiles*
[3:05] *Walks* The stars are beautiful tonight. The moon is almost full too……Hey, let’s kiss. Why are you surprised? Didn’t you think about these things even a little? I want to kiss you. Now, prepare yourself. *Moves closer* No matter what, I will wish for you happiness, forever. Until death do us apart. No, even if death does us apart, I swear my love for you.
[4:00] *Kiss* Thank you. So being satisfied feels like this. Does it feel like this when you’re full? I wonder…I can’t recall. I don’t care how, or in any way, I want to make you happy right now. What should I do? Tell me. If I laugh, you’re happy? Wait, but you can tell me whatever you want, whatever. If it’s now, I can grant you any wish you make. I will do anything. So, what do you want? You don’t want anything? I see, I understand. Then…I’ll stay smiling forever. Even after I see you off…forever. Forever. I promise. *Kiss*
Track 06 – Drama VI
*Bell tolls* *Wind howls*
[0:06] Look. The moon…the full moon is beautiful isn’t it? It’s time to part. Time passed so quickly. It was fun, the time I had with you and everything else. Why are worried about me? I experienced the most happiness in my life during my time with you. I was able to get the happiness that I thought I would never have as long as I was me. What more could I ask for? Thank you. It’s okay.
*Soul is released*
[1:00] Ahh, this is…your soul? It’s beautiful. So much more than I had imagined. It’s stunning. Hey, do you mind if I touch it? It’s warm…why? Why can I feel it? Ahh, to hell with it. *Hugs* I see…even though I was always with you I didn’t know anything about your warmth. Hey, I want to kiss you in this last moment. Mm, even your lips are warm. *Kiss*
[2:04] Hey, let me hear your voice more. *Kiss* No, more. *Kiss* Your voice is comforting. If it was possible I want to listen to it forever. *Kiss* Hey, say my name *Kiss* Go on, say Hinata. Ahh. *Kiss* *Kiss*
[2:40] No, I can’t. Now, let’s part. I have to let you feel at ease, right? It’s okay, I told you when we met. With my power I can let you die without pain. If I can use this power for you, I can be glad that I was a shinigami. *Kiss* Hey, why do you look so sad? What a fool. You don’t have to worry about anything and be at ease and die…
[3:28] But…but just a little longer…let’s stay like this. *Kiss* That’s right, just a little longer. *Kisses* *Sighs* I didn’t know. Death is a heartbreaking thing isn’t it? I wanted to die for so long but I didn’t know. You are a horrible person. You’re going to leave now that you’ve taught me so. So I won’t forget you. I’ll remember…forever. *Kisses* Hey, show me your face, properly. Ahhhh, geez. *Kiss* I…
[4:49] Forgive me. Ahh, please forgive me. I know. I know I shouldn’t do this. But to not be able to meet you ever again…that’s…No! I don’t want you to die. *Kiss* No…no, no, no, no! I don’t want to sing! *Kiss* I want to be with you forever. I want to be with you forever and ever. *Kiss* That’s all I want. It’s okay if I can’t die, anything’s okay. As long as *Kiss* you to stay laughing in my arms, then that’s enough. *Kiss* Hey, what do I have to sacrifice to be able to stay with you? *Kisses* Someone…tell me. Someone…save me.
*Bell tolls continuously*
[6:11] I have to sing…I have to sing…But…But…I don’t want to. But…I will sing. I’ll sing…I’ll sing for you…I’ll sing only for you. I can’t allow your soul to linger in this world. You can be at rest. You can’t stay in a world like this.
[7:10] I love you. I love you. Did you know? That I loved you this much? I wanted to tell you more. More…*Kiss*
[7:33] Goodbye. I’m sure…somewhere else…you’ll be smiling again. Goodbye.

The colour of your soul is extremely beautiful as it is extinguished
You lose your light within the depths of darkness and leave far away.
Let us escape this world together, that is what I wished for.
……I want to be with you forever.
……I want to die already.
My broken, scornful smile doesn’t reach you. The cruel and sharp theory pierces deeply.
The bloodstained contradiction is comforting. Now, I send you off to oblivion.
Even if I scoop, it continues to drip, the fruit of this sinful, forbidden love.
Kiss me strongly. The one that perseveres is my ego.
……Time should just stop.
……I won’t dream.
You rip the promise I dreamt of apart when you leave. The forcefully opened boundary is far away.
If I could close my eyes and hold her, I don’t need this painful reality anymore.
I want to see an expression no one else knows.
The pain is only for a split second.
Don’t be embarrassed.
Nn……You don’t have to be afraid.
You’ll be at ease soon……
Hey, will you say my name?
I love you.
I’ll pierce it deeply.
You understand right?
Ahh, you’re beautiful, very.
Endure it for a while, just a little more……
I want to go with you.
My broken, scornful smile doesn’t reach you. The cruel and sharp theory pierces deeply.
The bloodstained contradiction is comforting. Now, I send you off to oblivion. To eternity.
Track 08 – Extra Track～Last Message～
*Bell tolls* *Wind howls*
[0:20] Hey, look. I’m laughing as I promised you. *Sighs* I love you. I miss you. Even if you’re dead you’re adorable. So adorable. But…but I…hate…I hate and miss the you that left me behind! I hate you. I hate you. I hate you. I hate you. I hate you so much! I want to die. Let me go to where you are.
I swear I heard Kikumaru Eiji’s voice in the song… ;w; Well, it’s the same voice actor so it’s to be expected but wow. It’s been a while Hiroki 0A0 And your voice is still so good as ever… That aside…
HIIIIINAAAAAAAAAATTAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! (ノ ゜Д゜)ノ ==== ┻━━┻ WHYYYYYYYY (；Д；)<怒悲愛怒悲愛!!! When I saw his character design I thought I wouldn’t like you. Then they said you were an M and a yandere. That just confirmed my thoughts that I probably wouldn’t like you. Then…the CD came out. AHAHAHA WHY DO I LIKE YOU NOW?! I don’t like Hinata as much as Akira but OMG Hinata’s such a dear. He’s so nice.
Unlike Kou-chan’s, Hinata’s nice feels real. He really does wish you to be happy. He’s only a masochist because he’s been suffering for so long, being a shinigami. He wants to die and that’s why he feels pleasure from being hurt. Feeling the pain lets him know that he’s a little closer to death. But that never lasts long.
He’s a yandere in the sense that he loves you so much he wants to keep you to himself. But he’s not extreme. He loves you so he lets you rest in peace, escape this poor excuse of a world. By doing that means that he’ll lose what he loves and he’ll be alone again. That’s why he hates you. He loves you to the point he hates you because you left him, even though he’s the one who sent you off. YEAH IT MAKES SENSE BUT IT DOESN’T
Ahaha GDI Rejet just let Hinata die with me please. Please. I BEG YOU. End his suffering because it really does hurt. I hated tracks 5 and onwards. My heart felt really tight going through it. I mean if I can feel that pain just by listening imagine how much Hinata would be in. PLEASE JUST RELEASE HIM FROM THIS SUFFERING!!! (;人;) ｵ･ﾈ･ｶﾞ･ｲ
I really didn’t expect to like Hinata, and I do. I really do. He’s a wonderful character and it’s nice to have a character who seems to pure yet suffers at the same time. If the rest of the series is going to exceed my expectations like this, I’m not sure I will survive.
