Prologue to "GimiChoko"   in Legend "1997"

On the holy night, at "Uki Uki * Midnight", too much glittering bright!
did YUIMETAL & MOAMETAL,
and SU-METAL.
But they should have been careful not to romp too much. YUIMETAL & MOAMETAL
once again, though the Fox God had taught them "Never eat it! Absolutely not!",
ate the "check-it-out chocolate".
"Can I have a bit of choco, too?" thought SU-METAL,
but, keeping her hand in the fox sign, she restrained herself.
"Would you have a bit of choco?" The two do the devil's temptation.
SU-METAL can't resist it and stretches her hand to the chocolate,
but, for some reason, the chocolate escapes from her.
"Why!? Wait a while! Wait! Wait!"
SU-METAL asks the Fox God for it.
"Give me chocolate, please!"

Notes

  1. Since there is a sign "U K I U K I" on the house in the picture, here "Uki Uki * Midnight" (which is the name of one tune of BABYMETAL) may be the name of a house, a party, or something.
  2. The BGM is the one often used for the prologue to "Onedari DaiSakusen", so many of the audience expected SU-METAL would sing "Onedari DaiSakusen" with MOAMETAL & YUIMETAL, and they shouted "wow".
  3. Grammatically these three lines mean "[YUIMETAL & MOAMETAL] ate once again the 'check-it-out chocolate' which they had been taught 'you must not eat, absolutely not' ".
  4. The notation "チョコっと" (chokotto) is the word play of "ちょこっと" (chokotto; a bit) and "チョコ" (choko; chocolate).
  5. The narrator says "osasoi o suru", but the middle "o" is missing on the screen. I don't know which is wrong, but the former is better (though still not natural Japanese).
  6. I add a pair of quotation marks which are missing on the screen.
