Hidden Symbolism, Faust and Medieval Art
Yep, so we all know Faust is the ur-Devil story that everyone has picked up from pop culture. So it's only natural they picked the text from the opening credits from the Goethe version.
Can anyone place any other siginificant things from this? Like the medieval scene of a city burning that seems to hang over the council office that I feel we're supposed to recognize.
Also: the lyrics on Funimation translate the bit at the beginning of the ED as this
wonth gir sliv edhi wecnad wonth gir
Is this something in particular we should know?
Is there something more to this symbolism which I'm missing?
I don't know if you are still looking for an answer to this. The actual translation is "Wonth gir sliv edhti wecnad" if you flip it, it reads "Dancew ithde vils rig htnow" And with proper rearranging, it reads "Dance with devils right now"
Thank you! I'm always looking for answers! This helps clear up something right proper!
