Vocaloid Original Song – Aku no Musume

The song by itself is quirky, but it’s best to be heard with the coupling song, Aku no Meshitsukai if you want to know the whole story.

Rating: 7/10. ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

Daughter of Evil
Vocals: Kagamine Rin
Lyrics: mothy (Aku noP)
Composition: mothy (Aku noP)
Arrangement: mothy (Aku noP)

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away
There was a Princess of age fourteen
who reigned from the top
of a cruel and despotic kingdom

Gorgeously and luxuriously furnished
She had a servant with a face very similar to hers
Her pet horse’s name was Joséphine
All and everything belonged to her

‘If I didn’t have enough money
I’d extort it from the foolish people
I’d eliminate
Those who disobeyed me’

“Now, now, you may kneel before me!”

The flower of evil blooms so prettily
with vivid colors
The poor weeds surrounding it
Ah, become its nourishment and wilt away


The tyrant princess fell in love
with a man in blue across the sea
But he only had eyes for a lady in green
from the neighboring kingdom

Mad with jealousy, the Princess
summoned her court members one day
and with a quiet voice, she said,
“You may annihilate the kingdom in green”

Many homes were burnt down
Many lives were lost
The lament of the suffering people
couldn’t reach the princess

“Oh my, it’s snack time”

The flower of evil blooms so prettily
with crazy colors
Even though it’s a very beautiful flower
Ah, it has too many thorns, thus it’s untouchable


To be able to overthrow the evil princess
People finally rose up
A female swordsman in red armor
led the mobs of those folks

The pent-up anger
enclosed the entire kingdom
The soldiers, tired by the years of war,
were no match for it

The palace was finally surrounded
and her vassals fled
The lovely and pretty Princess
was finally captured

“You insolent fools!”

The flower of evil blooms so prettily
with doleful colors
The paradise for her
Ah, crumbles so easily like a house of cards


Once upon a time, in a land far, far away
There was a Princess of age fourteen
who once reigned from the top
of a cruel and despotic kingdom

The time of execution was three o’clock in the afternoon
When the church bells tolled
What did the person who was called a princess
think in her prison cell alone?

Finally the time had come
and the bells tolled, announcing the end
Without any regard for the public crowds
-She- said this:

“Oh my, it’s snack time”

The flower of evil falls apart so prettily
with vivid colors
Afterwards, people said this:
Ah, she was truly a daughter of evil


Aku no Musume
Vocals: Kagamine Rin

Mukashi mukashi aru tokoro ni
Akugyaku hidou no oukoku no
Chouten ni kunrinsuru wa
Yowai juuyon no oujo-sama

Kenran gouka na choudohin
Kao no yoku nita meshitsukai
Aiba no namae wa Josefiinu
Subete ga subete kanojo no mono

O-kane ga tarinaku natta nara
Gumin-domo kara shiboritore
Watashi ni sakarau mono-tachi wa
Shukuseishite shimae

“Saa, hizamazuki nasai!”

Aku no hana   karen ni saku
Azayaka na irodori de
Mawari no aware na zassou wa
Aa   youbun to nari kuchite iku


Boukun oujo ga koisuru wa
Umi no mukou no aoi hito
Dakedo mo kare wa ringoku no
Midori no onna ni hitomebore

Shitto ni kurutta oujo-sama
Aru hi daijin o yobidashite
Shizuka na koe de iimashita
“Midori no kuni o horoboshi nasai”

Ikuta no ie ga yakiharaware
Ikuta no inochi ga kiete iku
Kurushimu hitobito no nageki wa
Oujo ni wa todokanai

“Ara, o-yatsu no jikan da wa”

Aku no hana   karen ni saku
Kuruoshii irodori de
Totemo utsukushii hana na no ni
Aa   toge ga oosugite sawarenai


Aku no oujo o taosu beku
Tsui ni hitobito wa tachiagaru
Ugou no karera o hikiiru wa
Akaki yoroi no onna-kenshi

Tsumori ni tsumotta sono ikari
Kuni zentai o tsutsumikonda
Naganen no ikusa de tsukareta
Heishi-tachi nado teki de wa nai

Tsui ni oukyuu wa kakomarete
Kashin-tachi mo nigedashita
Kawaiku karen na oujo-sama
Tsui ni toraerareta

“Kono   bureimono!”

Aku no hana   karen ni saku
Kanashige na irodori de
Kanojo no tame no rakuen wa
Aa   moroku mo hakanaku kuzureteku


Mukashi mukashi aru tokoro ni
Akugyaku hidou no oukoku no
Chouten ni kunrinshiteta
Yowai juuyon no oujo-sama

Shokei no jikan wa gogo sanji
Kyoukai no kane ga naru jikan
Oujo to yobareta sono hito wa
Hitori rouya de nani o omou

Tsui ni sono toki wa yatte kite
Owari o tsugeru kane ga naru
Minshuu nado ni wa me mo kurezu
-Kanojo- wa kou itta

“Ara, o-yatsu no jikan da wa”

Aku no hana   karen ni chiru
Azayaka na irodori de
Nochi no hitobito wa kou kataru
Aa   kanojo wa masa ni aku no musume

  1. Finally, a translation that’s in comprehensible English…the other ones were kind of hard to understand. The way you translated the lyrics made them seem more poetic; it allowed me to get into the story more than the other lyrics on YouTube. Thank you for your amazing translation!

  2. I think the right phrase is..
    “subete ga subete ga nozo omou”
    But i’m not sure… Your phrase doesn’t match the melody. I think the meaning of my phrase is..
    “wants to own everything”. Check first. I’m not so good in japanese.

  4. There is song for other characters too, but they were wrote by different peoples.
    For Miku it´s Daughter of Green, for Meiko it´s Daughter of Vengeance and Prince of Blue for Kaito.

  5. one more for kaito, it’s called yami no oi, or prince of darkness

  6. http://vocaloid.wikia.com/wiki/Story_of_Evil

    These are the full story, background and parodies of the songs.

  7. A random visitor

    daughter of green has been made fals with the release of Daughter of White, which was made by Mothy/AkunoP.

  8. Thank you for the translation! The most popular translation is rhymed beautifully, but It leaves things out or changes them in order to achieve that
