"Come, let's begin."
―Allen Avadonia[src]

Seven Crimes and Punishments is a song released by Akuno-P on February 13, 2015. It was included in an album of the same name. It is the eighth song in the Clockwork Lullaby Series, depicting the seven main characters from the Seven Deadly Sins Series.


Allen Avadonia announces they shall now begin; Duke Sateriasis Venomania relates that the seven flowers have been released, him drowning in lust while concealing his ugly true face. Banica Conchita then relates that the seven seeds have descended and taken root in the ground. Banica describes her plans to melt everything, even the world, in her stomach. Princess Riliane Lucifen d'Autriche regards that from the gems it was built upon, her evil kingdom is now unstoppable. With the vessels of malice released by the cursed twins, the three proclaim that the story that will be drawn will be of seven crimes and punishments.

As the seven winds violate the world with poison, Sleep Princess, the false sin and the main source of everything, laments that she isn't able to sleep today either. In the seven springs, Kayo Sudou sees the face of the man she loves, however, other people intefere and she wishes they didn't exist. In the court buried in the soil, Gallerian Marlon commands his farce called a trial to be begun. While the three claim everyone wishes for their utopia, they relate the outcome that will be met will be seven crimes and punishments.

Nemesis Sudou then asks if the song of the forest can be heard, but remarks it's only her gunshot of destruction before firing at the screen. After the seven again proclaim that the story drawn from the vessels the cursed twins released will be of seven crimes and punishments, they and Hänsel and Gretel sing the Clockwork Lullaby.


「さあ 始めよう」

七つの花は舞い 罪は今放たれた
醜い素顔 覆い隠したまま

七つの種は降り 大地に根を張るだろう
全てを解かす 胃袋の強酸
そう 世界さえも


いかなる物語を 描くのか


七つの風の中 毒に犯される世界
あらゆる元凶 今日も眠れないと

七つの泉には 愛する人の面影
だけど違う影が いつも写り込むの

さあ始めよう 裁判という名の茶番を






"Saa hajimeyou"

Nanatsu no hana wa mai tsumi wa ima hanatareta
Minikui sugao oui kakushita mama
Obore yuku jouyoku

Nanatsu no tane wa furi daichi ni ne o haru darou
Subete o tokasu ibukuro no kyousan
Sou sekai sae mo

Ishi no ue ni kizukareta
"Aku no oukoku" wa mou tomaranai

Norowareta futago kara
Hanatareta akui no utsuwa
Ikanaru monogatari o egaku no ka

Nanatsu no tsumi to batsu

Nanatsu no kaze no naka doku ni okasareru sekai
Arayuru genkyou kyou mo nemurenai to
Nageku itsuwari no tsumi

Nanatsu no izumi ni wa aisuru hito no omokage
Dakedo chigau kage ga itsumo utsurikomu no
Omaetachi sae inakereba

Tsuchi ni umoreta houtei de
Saa hajimeyou saiban to iu na no chaban o

Dareshimo ga motometeru
Sorezore no YUUTOPIA o
Ikanaru ketsumatsu o mukaeru no ka

Nanatsu no tsumi to batsu

Kikoete kuru no wa mori no uta?
Iie sore wa hametsu no juusei

Norowareta futago kara
Hanatareta akui no utsuwa
Ikanaru monogatari o egaku no ka

Nanatsu no tsumi to batsu

Come, let’s begin

Seven flowers flutter about, the crime is now unleashed
While my unsightly true face is masked
I continue to drown in lust

Seven seeds rain down, roots will stretch through the ground
The acid of my stomach will melt everything
Yes, even the world

This “Evil’s Kingdom” built up on the stone won’t stop anymore

The vessels of malice that were unleashed from the cursed twins
What sort of story do they paint?
Seven crimes and punishments

In seven winds the world is violated by poison
The source of everything, a false sin
That laments how she can’t sleep today either

In seven springs are traces of the one I love
But different images always get in the way
If only you people weren’t around

In the courtroom buried in soil
Come, let’s begin this farce named a trial

Everyone is searching for their respective utopia
What kind of conclusion will they meet?
Seven crimes and punishments

Is it the song of the forest I can hear?
No, that’s the gunshot of destruction

The vessels of malice that were unleashed from the cursed twins
What sort of story do they paint?
Seven crimes and punishments

Conceptualization and OriginEdit

  • The song's title is derived from the Seven Deadly Sins featured in the series.
  • The song was released to commemorate mothy's seventh anniversary of his song career.
  • Despite the anniversary officially being February 28, the song was released on February 13 to coincide with the release of the Seven Crimes and Punishments album crossfade.
  • According to mothy, the song wasn't originally planned for the album and was added at the last minute because he wanted something "flashy";[1] he admitted that it ultimately tied together the entire album rather nicely.[2]
  • The song has a strong association with the number seven; it features the seven main characters from the Seven Deadly Sins Series, was uploaded at 7:00 PM JST, was meant to commemorate mothy's seven-year anniversary, and has been labeled as "Clockwork Lullaby 7" for its English title.
  • During each singer's segment in the song, a unique instrumental is used along with the standard melody, each resembling one of the instruments used in the corresponding character's Seven Deadly Sins song.
  • During the segments for Riliane and Gallerian, the unique sound effects used in their respective Seven Deadly Sins songs can be heard; during Nemesis' segment, the gunshot sound effect from The Last Revolver is used.




  1. @mothy_akuno – 02/24/15 – 実は当初CDにこの曲を入れる予定はなかった。でもやっぱりオープニングは派手にしたいよね、ということで土壇場で入れる事に決定。
  2. @mothy_akuno – 02/24/15 – 結果としてアルバム全体がびしっとまとまったように思う。
