黄金夢想曲/Ougon Musou Kyoku Mini TL Project
In several threads ago, I’ve mentioned my fascination over the Umineko no Naku Koro Ni (Umineko) spinoff called Ougon Musou Kyoku (OMK) for PC. This spinoff is different from the original gameplay, instead of ‘Sound Novel’ OMK is a 2D tag-team side-scroll fighting game featuring the characters from the original game itself.
Recently this game will be ported to Xbox360 (Japan) with the title of 黄金夢想曲X on October 2011. And also the 2nd installment of OMK is currently on its way featuring new characters from the other half-end of the story such as Erika and Dlanor.
First of all I would like to thank the Witch Hunt Translation group for translating the former ‘Sound Novel’, for myself has refrain to read the 7th episode and waited for the release of the 8th episode. But without their help, I wont be able to enjoy myself and read this great series from 07th Expansion and Ryukishi07.
As for my small project, I figured there might not be much of a script that is involved in this OMK, so I decided to try and translate the storyline within this game. The storyline is accessed through the Arcade mode in this game with a certain character combination. There are over 18 combination of characters that will trigger a storyline and I would like to try and work on all of that.
My methods are a bit… raw and rough due to my inability to use a text hooker with this game. Therefore doing it the hard way, I have recorded my gameplay via the livestream service and replayed the video over and over again to find out the script, regardless I have successfully ‘noted’ the first combination characters script. Should there be a better suggestions I am all open.
Before I start with the translations here are some Link and References

Ok with that all said and done, I’ll begin the translations, script are also copied there and I apologize if there are any mistranslations as I have best tried to work on this on my own.
I hope you will enjoy this game as I did. Let us begin the Symphony of the Golden Dream!
*Note: Please note that some part of script i wrote in regular English, that is due to a Katakana reading and I tend to just read it off like that.
*Note: I’ve taken the liberty to shorten the character names ‘Beatrice to Beato’, and ‘Eva Beatrice to Evatrice’
*Note: Side event took place randomly and I’ve only played 2x which gave me 2 different side events. I have translated these and I do reckon there are more. However these are side events and it does hit the spot although it has no relations with the game story, usually just personal remarks and comments of the characters about their partners.
Battler: どういうことだ 黄金の魔女はお前じゃないか。どうしてGAME盤が乗っ取られる？
What are you saying, aren’t you the Golden Witch. How can the Game board being taken away?
That person has solved the epitaph puzzle, the new witch who solved the mystery of the gold, she is now the new master of this Game.
Lets take it back. This is our Game, we don’t need any outsiders!
I agree, this is the story that shall be only written with the ink blood of our struggle.
I wont admit this, but You’re the best and the worst partner!
Kyahahah! What an undeserved honor, that is the best compliment!
Event – ｖｓ。Siesta410/Lucifer （before fight)
Nihihi! after all the trouble of letting you escape. You surely are a fool to return, Sendai-sama.
Lucifer： Beatrice sama、お許しお、そしてお覚悟を。。。！
Beatrice-sama, prepare yourself and please forgive me…!
Very good, my prideful furniture! Rest assured, you’ll call me Master again soon!
For someone who’s running for their life, What a boastful mouth you have Sendai-sama.
You’ll be the one who is running away this time. Lets go Beato, we’re taking them down!
Event – ｖｓ。Siesta410/Lucifer (after fight)
How was it, your flesh and bones even understand it, who’s the Game board master now!
Siesta410: うきゅー、降参にえ さっさと大将戦てそれを決着してほしいにえ
Unyaa, I give up. this battle should be settled as soon as possible
Who was it, Who took the Game Board away from Beato? Who is the new Witch?
It’s someone you know pretty well, she solved the Epitaph puzzle, and that is how the new witch is succeeded.
Battler: 俺のよく知ってる人物。。。？ まさか、親類の誰かだったのか。。。？！
Someone I know? Dont tell me… is it someone from the Family!?
Whoa what a completely no mercy and cold blooded guy!
Hah! I don’t want to hear that from you!
Event – ｖｓ。Eva Beatrice/Ronove （before fight)
Battler: そんな。。。EVAおばさんが 新しい黄金の魔女だったってのか
how can this be… the new Golden Witch is Eva oba-san?
That is correct, such is the title and power is given to whom who has solved the Epitaph puzzle and that is all according the rules…
I’ve solved the Epitaph’s trial and gained all its benefits! Whats to complain!?
I have no objections within the rules, you can keep the gold. as for the complain
Beato: だがGAME盤は譲らぬ 妾とBattlerの戦いには、一切の邪魔お許さめ！そなたはやり過ぎた。返してもらうぞ、妾たちの戦いを！
Return it our Battle! Taking away the Game board and always interfering my battle with Battler is too much.
Is that how you say it when you’re the Witch?
You’ve used up your turn! This is now my world and I am it’s master! Why dont you just give up and die!?
Event – ｖｓ。Eva Beatrice/Ronove（after fight）
Evatrice: そんな。。。どうして魔女が魔女を否決できるのよ！？ 嫌よこんなの？！い、嫌あああ！！
How is a witch able to deny an existence of another witch!? I don’t like this!? I hate iiiit!!
Well done, Beatrice-sama. It is my honor to serve you again.
Hmm… Return all the Game board pieces into it’s place. Prepare for a new another game immediately.
Understood, I shall prepare another stage for your battle with Battler-sama.
I suppose this is the end of our alliance.
Yes. I suppose this is not a bad experience for an entertainment.
We’ve returned here at last
Each time when I confront you, when we are in alliance. why do I feel pity? why do we have to fight each other?
I dont want to hear any dumb comment.
I am doing it to save my family and You are doing it so I can admit you as a Witch. Therefore we deny each other here.
Stop confusing me with strange words.
Beato: そうであったな つまらめことを聞いた。 魔女の気まぐれを許せ
Is that so, You’ve heard a boring words on a Witch’s whim.
Here I come. I’ll explain all your Magic with Trick!
Beato: くくく、良かろう！わが魔法密室殺人、説明できるもなら説明してみよ！さ来い、USHIROMIYA BATTLER!
Kukuku, very well! Then do explain my magically closed room murder if you can! Come! USHIROMIYA BATTLER!
