- "I don’t have to know anything of the outside world."
- ―Clockworker's Doll[src]
Miniature Garden Girl is a song released by Akuno-P on June 22, 2008 and later uploaded with a PV on July 3 the same year. It is the third song in the Clockwork Lullaby Series, detailing the experiences of the Clockworker's Doll while under the ownership of Gallerian Marlon.
Plot[edit | edit source]
A girl sings about how no one but her and her caretaker are in her little room, and how she will forgo learning about the outside world to sing with him. Being called "daughter" and calling her caretaker "father" in return, the girl relates how she was given multiple treasures to compensate her for not being able to walk, including a red glass, a blue spoon, and two yellow mirrors. While her father is always kind, the girl continues to wonder about the outside world, and observes the objects in her room mocking her, claiming she is the same as them. The girl vows to stay inside and sing for her father regardless. One day, she hears him say the word "war" and wonders why the room is burning. At the song's end, inside the wreckage of a house is the remains of a lonely man and a half burned doll.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
Conceptualization and Origin[edit | edit source]
- A "miniature garden", 箱庭 (hakoniwa), is a small, Japanese garden often dedicated to children for their fun and pleasure.
- While commenting on the song, mothy admitted that, after releasing The Daughter of Evil, The Servant of Evil, and Regret Message, he felt pressured during its creation.
- The song shares a motif with Heartbeat Clocktower.
Curiosities[edit | edit source]
- The spoon, glass and mirrors the Doll mentions are actually the vessels of sin, making their debut before their significance was made known.
- The doll's size and appearance varies throughout the song PV.
- In the Judgment of Corruption song PV, one of the "episodes" is titled "The Miniature Garden Girl and the Vessels of Sin", alluding to the song.
- Similarly, during The Muzzle of Nemesis PV, the text "Doll of the Miniature Garden" appears when the Clockworker's Doll is shown.
- In Deadly Sins of Evil: Gift from the Princess who Brought Sleep, Margarita Blankenheim tells of how her husband has already sold her glasses, spoons and mirror, possibly alluding to the vessels in the song.
- In one illustration, the spoon is mistakenly drawn as a fork.
- In the Clockwork Lullaby album, Kiril Clockworker remarks on the presence of both Irina Clockworker and Adam Moonlit in the song, the latter possibly being a clue for him to go on.
