Kino no Tabi:Volume5 Prologue
“Amidst the Setting Sun ･ b” — Will ･ b —
Despite what everybody says, I find this place truly beautiful.
While everybody says this place is tedious, I always thought this place refreshing.
I remember not being able to even think when I first saw this place, so captivated by its beauty.
No matter how many times I observe it I can’t even fathom its incredible beauty.
I wish nothing but to be able to watch this place every day.
It seems that I am the only one who thinks this way.
Is there something wrong with me?
Am I insane?
This world is shining with a lovely light.
It calms me down, it consoles me. It helps me with forgetting my sorrows.
Whether it’s evidence of my insanity, my madness or my lunacy, I am filled with bliss over the mere fact that I can see beauty in this world.
I am ecstatic of the fact that I can think like this, in this moment.
I will always observe this world.
Even if everybody else curses this world’s ugliness.
As long as I find this world beautiful, even if the mere fact of my finding beauty in this world is a sin, I will always be looking at it.
“Come on Will, let’s get some grub.”
“Yeah, I’m coming.”
I can’t let my precious comrades wait any longer.
I descended through the ladder after saluting to the beautiful world once more.
