In the game, each chapter begins with a mysterious poem written by a person named "Frederica Bernkastel." Her poem summarizes the theme of each chapter. The poem itself is quite meaningful as you play through each chapter.

As these poems by Frederica Bernkastel may hold some interesting things to think about, I will list them here as the anime progresses.


Poems by Frederica Bernkastel
=======================

Onikakushi-hen (game)
----------------------------------------------
Please do not deplore yourself.
Even if the world does not forgive, I will forgive you.

Please do not deplore yourself.
Even if you do not forgive the world, I will forgive you.

So please tell me.
What will it take for you, to forgive me?
=======================
Onikakushi-hen (from the postcard in GanGan Powered Spring 2005 issue)
----------------------------------------------
Do you know what is the sin?
It isn't because you ate the forbidden fruit.

Do you know what is the sin?
It isn't because you listened to the serpent.

You still don't know what is the sin?
Then, that itself is your sin.
=======================
Watanagashi-hen (game)
----------------------------------------------
I cannot quench your thirst
Because even if you yearn for the truth, you refuse to believe in it.

I cannot quench your thirst
Because no such truth exists that you are in anticipation for.

But I still want to quench your thirst.
Because I am the one the that put you into the desert.
========================
Watanagashi-hen (from the postcard in GanGan WING June 2005 issue)
-----------------------------------------------
The most intricate thing to find in this world.
Is it a needle that you lost in the desert?

The most intricate thing to find in this world.
Is it a crow's feather that you lost in the darkness of the night?

The most intricate thing to find in this world is,
Realizing your own erroneous contemplation.
========================
Tatarigoroshi-hen (game)
------------------------------------------------
The frog in the well was happy.
It wasn't interested what was outside the well.

The frog in the well was happy.
It was recluse to anything that happened outside the well.

And you were happy.
Because you didn't know what occurred outside the well
=========================
Tatarigoroshi-hen (from the postcard in G-fantasy June 2005 issue)
--------------------------------------------------
I was the most unfortunate.
I knew that there was no exit out of this maze.

Then, he was the next unfortunate.
He did not know that there was no exit out of this maze.

But all the rest weren't so unfortunate.
They didn't know that they were in the maze in the first place
==========================
Himatsubishi-hen (game)
----------------------------------------------------
So who is the culprit, you ask?
Finding that out is part of the story, right?

So who is the culprit, you ask?
Do you even know what is the culprit in the first place?

So who is the culprit?
Who is the culprit that's gonna kill me?!
===========================
Himatsubushi-hen (from the shitajiki in GanGan March 2006 issue)
------------------------------------------------------
What is it that I seek?
Perhaps it is a knight from a far away land.

What is it that I seek?
Perhaps it is a shore that will save me from this eternal swamp.

There is only one thing that I seek.
What I would obtain will either be the kishi (shore), or shiki (my death).
============================
Message from Frederica Bernkastel (LOL I LIKE THIS ONE)
--------------------------------------------------------
I am who I am; Frederica Bernkastel.
Furude Rika and Frederica are different. Shame on you if you thought so.
My age? I've gotten bored with it, so I've quit counting.

Huh? Are you speculating that the real identity of the Oyashiro-sama is me?
Giggle giggle. You are so insolent.
The Oyashiro-sama is the Oyashiro-sama. You want me to introduce it to you? It's rather shy.
It gets frightened easily so don't scare it, okay? However, it seems that you are the one that's scared.

Giggle giggle giggle...
============================
Meakashi-hen (game)
--------------------------------------------------------
The little girl cried when she lost her marbles in the desert.
She searched the desert for one hundred years.

The little girl cried when she thought she might've lost them in the sea rather than the desert.
She searched the depths of the sea for one hundred years.

The little girl cried when she thought she might've lost them in the mountains than the sea.
How long will it take till she begins to doubt whether or not she actually lost them to begin with?
=============================
Tsumihoroboshi-hen (game)
----------------------------------------------------------
At the first time, I do my best to try again
against the inevitable tragedy.

In the second time, I become disgusted
towards the inevitable tragedy.

The third time, disgust is overwhelmed into painfulness.
But by the seventh time, this all becomes a farce comedy.
=============================
Tsumihoroboshi-hen (what was listed on the production diary @ 07th Expansion)
---------------------------------------------------------
She wasn't discouraged nor did she cry at her fate.
She was beautiful.

She didn't fawn anyone and fought them all by herself.
She was noble.

She shined brightly, like a divine figure.
I needed someone like her.
=============================
Minagoroshi-hen (Prologue)
----------------------------------------------------------
I wanted to know the world that was outside of the well.
So I tried hard to get out from the bottom of the well.

I wanted to know the world that was outside of the well.
So I climbed up numerous of times despite falling down over and over again.

But then I realized it.
The higher and higher I climb, the pain increases when I fall down again.

When my interest in the world outside of the well began to equal the amount of pain,
That was when I finally realized the meaning of the story to Der Froschkönig.
================================
Minagoroshi-hen (After Watanagashi)
----------------------------------------------------------------
Please tell me what happened in this night.
It's like the cat inside the box.

Please tell me what happened in this night.
You don't know if the cat in the box is dead or alive.

Please tell me what happened in this night.
The cat in the box was dead.
================================
Minagoroshi-hen (Ending Credit Roll)
----------------------------------------------------------------
What kind of world lies outside of the well?
Is it something that is worth struggling for?

What kind of world lies outside of the well?
Is it something so attractive enough to fall and try over and over again?

What kind of world lies outside of the well?
Let's enjoy taking the pains of finding that out.

If I reach the world that yearn for, it must be a spectacular world.
Even if that world was another pit inside a well.

The key to the new world is the resolve to get out of the well.
Being able to get out or not,
A new world awaits...
================================
Matsuribayashi-hen (Prologue & Ending Credit Roll Part A)
---------------------------------------------------------------
Everyone has a right to pursue a happy life.
The difficult part is to be given that right.

Everyone has a right to pursue a happy life.
The difficult part is to fulfill that right.

I too have a right to pursue a happy life.
The difficult part is to work out a compromise for that right.
================================
Matsuribayashi-hen (Ending Credit Roll Part
---------------------------------------------------------------
That's because
I'm gonna become much much more happy from now on.

I'm not gonna compromise with just this.
We are gonna take back all of our happiness that we lost.

For me, that's about a hundred year's worth.
For you, a thousand year's worth.

While we're on the topic of Frederica, here's a translation of Piece 52 from the game, which is the epilogue scene from episode 24. So for all of those that thought that that woman at the end was Rika, think again, it was Frederica.

============================================================================

「I'm going out to play---!!!」

The energetic voice of the girl resounds all over the house. 

It is a poor tenement, so the walls are thin. 

That energetic voice resounded even to the next door but, no one would be an inelegant person to complain about the pleasant and energetic voice of a child.


「Miyoko.
I think we'll go to the department store but...」


That voice doesn't reach the girl who created a new secret base in the field and wants a lot to play there with everyone as soon as possible.

The father making the girl going to the department store with the family turns out to be enjoyable and he knew that if he goes out only with his wife, she would be sulky, so he called out to her. 
 
... And the girl has a hobby of collecting the flags of the child lunch and it seems with 1 more flag, she will have 20 flags.

The girl made wishes of happiness to the flags of the child lunch.  

If she gathers 20 flags, she is sure that some miracle will happen and she can be happy,

...She believed that.

It can't be helped.

He'll get the flags of the child lunch back as souvenirs to her.

It's no big deal.

If she asks to the people of the restaurant she'll get even more flags.
 
That day, ......the schedule of the railroad was a chaos because of a trifling semaphore trouble.

In order make up for the delay and gain time, the driver stepped a bit slowly in the place you usually brake and a bit more quickly than in the place you usually accelerate, .... he was making those moves.

The Tanashi family does not have a private automobile.

They'll go to the department store by electric train.

A woman alone with whom she's not familiar call the girl to a halt,........ the girl who looks at the house of a friend while skipping.

With a glance, the girl thought that was not a person from this neighborhood. 

This neighborhood is made of very poor tenements of acquaintances of the neighborhood.

Everyone knows the faces f the neighbours. 

So, if people they don't know were here, ... they'd be or a new mailman.... or a stranger who wrong guessed his shortcut and lost his way.

The woman said to the girl.

「......Do you want to live?

.........Or do you want to die?」


Having asked just that, a normal person would suspect she is a strange person. 

However, the girl still had the innocence to take that seriously.  

So, the girl immediately replies.

「I want to live!」

「I see. Then go.

At any rate, even if you go, your friends won't be there but, even so, go.」

「............Won't be there?」

The girl strangely thought why would this strange woman know such a thing.

She calls the woman who tries to leave to a halt.

If this is the answer she gave to her "I want to live",... it is a bit strange but, with her childish innocence, she was curious to know what would be the answer she would get if her answer was the other option.


「Then, what if I'd like to die?」

「You'd get one more flag of the child lunch.」
 
「.....Eh!!

Aah, not fair, that's my reason to go the department store!!

Not fair, not fair!」


The girl is already at full speed.

Now, she tries to run back the way she came.


「Nice isn't it....?

........You don't regret it,....right...?」


The strange woman says that to call her attention.


「Why should I regret?」

「.........I won't tell you. ...Because it'd be unkind.」

「.....Huum....」

The girl thinks she is being tested with some enigma and ponders about that but, .... but she is clueless.

And then, ....what is that, she clapped her hands indifferent to it and said.


「It's alright, Onee-chan.」

「Why is it alright?」

「Whatever happens, my father and my mother will be with me.」

「...............................」


Hearing that, the woman makes her way.

The girl quickly nodded and ran back to her family.

Right after the doors unlock, there were her parents trying to depart.

The girl jumps at that and they hurried her to go

...... The girl managed to go to the department store with her family.

And the three people of the family went to the station, ... took the train,... and boarded on it.

The driver was in a hurry for falling behind the schedule that he couldn't recover and, ...it seemed that it was implictly transmitted even to the passengers by the way he drives.

Today it is shaking.

The girl says that while kneeled in the seat looking outside. 

Her mother warns her to seat down properly because it is dangerous.

But the girl puts out her tongue.

..........And then, ......the train, .......approaches a very very big,.... and ver very steep,...curve.

Inside the train, they incline to that direction and many people are pushed to the other side and pressed into a manjuu.

In that narrow space, moans can be heard....

And then, ... everyone in the train is pressed tightly again.........

...................

The girl and her parents returned home under a whole starry sky holding with both hands full paper bags they bought.

They open the lock and turn on the lights inside the completely dark house,... after the girl placed the load in the entrance, she rushed to her room.

And then, ...... she opens the drawer of the writing desk, .... and takes what she had put inside her pocket.

......She opens the closed drawer a bit more and spreads all those flags,.... on top of the folded clothes.

Those were flags of the child lunch, .... that were copies of flags of many countries.

The Japanese flag, America, England, and, eerh, where is this one from...

This three coloured flag is hard to identify...

After that, she lines them up in order to count them.

And then, she placed them while counting with her mouth. 

And then, the girl begins to dance happily. 

Because she gathered 20 flags like she desired. 

How much time did it take for her to gather these? 

The girl had big hardships to surmount that and for a short while she jumped in delight for her great achievement.

Since she had lots of trouble to gather these, certainly, there might be something good in it. 

If you gather 20 flags, you will certainly be able to be happy, so said the prayer.

So, she is sure that from now on something wonderful will happen...

The girl waits excited but,... the magical light doesn't appear and it's not that any devil appeared and granted her something. 

Maybe it won't be tonight and something good will happen tomorrow.

The girl patiently waits. 
 
She accomplished a great achievement of gathering 20 flags anyway.

Surely, a wonderful good fortune will come. 

Surely, a wonderful miracle will come. 

Or maybe it will become an amulet to chase away sad misfortunes. 

The girl puts the 20 flags back again in the drawer.

And then, upon hearing her mother's voice telling her to to brush her teeth and go to sleep, she rushed to the bathroom....

Nice, isn't it?

To say it like this.

That she received an advance of the miracle. 

Very well, I wonder what will I play next.

Because there are as many fragments as I want that I can play with. 

What ?

You wanna play too?

*giggle*, it's interesting.

It gives you the feeling you became god. 

Like a world where Satoshi is together with them or a world where the Sonozaki twins don't change places 

I wonder how would be a world where Satoko's parents and Rika's parents are well. 
 
Aah, how would it be?

If Akasaka was seduced by Takano and went to the enemy side.

Ahaha, it seems interesting. 

Personally, I have interest in seeing a world where that Takano is madly in love with Tomitake. 

It seems to be interesting to try and play pairing Keiichi with many girls.

I love fighting scenes.

*Giggle*

Well, I wonder what will I play next. There are as many pieces as I want.

Hey, do you have some more?

What do you want to play?

thanks for the post illuminous that clears things up slightly


am who I am; Frederica Bernkastel.
Furude Rika and Frederica are different. Shame on you if you thought so.
My age? I've gotten bored with it, so I've quit counting.

Huh? Are you speculating that the real identity of the Oyashiro-sama is me?
Giggle giggle. You are so insolent.
The Oyashiro-sama is the Oyashiro-sama. You want me to introduce it to you? It's rather shy.
It gets frightened easily so don't scare it, okay? However, it seems that you are the one that's scared.

Giggle giggle giggle...


Any one find it strange that she refers to Oyashiro-sama as an it.
surley if she's refering to Hanyuu she would'nt

I'm realy looking forward to season 3 now seems like there's plenty of mysterys left

She's probably referring to Oyashiro-sama, or Hanyuu, as an "it" just to keep her real identity shrouded in mystery. Its more thought provoking calling Oyashiro-sama an "it" rather than a "she", don't you think? Well, that's just my thoughts on it.

Posted 12/24/07
she doesn't seem to hold any person in very high regard, maybe she doesn't hold Oyashiro any higher? referring to Hanyuu as an it would just support that she feels superior.

the new naku koro ni series seems to suggest otherwise. the way she talks makes it sound like she has full control of where she's going, which puts her at a level above Rika.
