Front Breaking Full Version

•February 21, 2009 • Leave a Comment

The OP single of Slayers Evolution-R by Hayashibara Megumi. Lyric translation will be added latter, but you might want to check the lyric translation of the TV version on my previous post. Lyric translation added.

Front Breaking

Lyric : MEGUMI/Composition : 佐藤英敏/Arrangement : 五島 翔

ゆるぎのない その瞳
見据えている先で
あきれるほどの憤り
渦巻いていても

何度だって何度でも
人は立ち上がれる
生き与えられた命
とことん使って

手のひらで燃える熱い炎は
心の奥の奥で
誰もが持ってる 力

遠い未来への迷いよりも
今、目の前にある現実
一つ一つ砕いたなら
ただの砂に変わる
なりふりかまっちゃいられない
正面突破で行こう

眠る間もなくいきづく
傾いた世界で
心の使い方すら
戸惑う日もある

Song : Slayers Evolution-R OP TV-ver

•January 12, 2009 • Leave a Comment

It’s been a while since I post here. This time it’s an Opening of the new Slayers series, Slayers Evolution-R aired today ( Jan 12th ’09). Not really impressed the first time I listened to this song, but after a few times, it’s actually quite good.  Here’s the lyric :

Front Breaking

揺るぎのないその瞳 見据えている先で
呆れるほどの憤り 渦巻いていても
何度だって何度でも人は立ち上がれる
行き与えられた命 とことん使って
手の平で燃える熱い炎は
心の奥の奥で 誰もが持ってる力
遠い未来への迷いよりも 今目の前に有る現実
一つ一つ砕いたなら ただの砂に変わる
形振り構っちゃいられない
正面突破で行こう
Front Breaking
遠い未来への迷いよりも
今目の前に有る現実
一つ一つ砕いたなら

Song : Fly Away

•August 8, 2008 • Leave a Comment

The opening theme song of Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsuna Koto : Natsu no Sora
I’ve tried to write down the lyrics a couple of weeks ago, but there were too many parts which is rather confusing so I didn’t publish it on the blog. This is the lyrics written in the CD booklet.
Edit : I added the English translation of this song

Fly Away

Lyrics : thyme
Composition & Arrangements : 清水哲平

Kanji lyrics
good night Days, good old Days
帰らないと誓った日から 眠らせた記憶
ah knock on the Days, good old Days
会いたくなるなんて 悔しかった 強がってたのね
続いてくUp and Down ここでそっと寄り道 see you again

あの坂を登ったら見える景色 夏のdrive好きだった
風の匂いもBGMも 全てが 今も記憶の中

駆け出した坂道で 錆びた[closed]越えfly away

good night Days, good old Days
帰らないと誓った日から 眠らせた記憶
ah knock on the Days, good old Days
会いたくなるなんて 悔しかった 強がってたのね
ここに立てば見える 夢描いた青いキャンバス see you again

憧れの場所 戦場という真実 コワイ顔ばかりなの
オブジェみたいに高層ビル囲も木が [仕方ない]って笑った

飛び出したあの街は あったかい記憶のままかなぁ?

good night Days, good old Days
帰らないと誓った日から 眠らせた記憶
ah knock on the Days, good old Days
会いたくなるなんて 悔しかった 強がってたのね
続いてくUp and Down ここでそっと寄り道

たったひとつ 希望だけ詰み込んできたバッグ
それだけじゃ足りないってこと知ったの
重たくなって倒れたって
離さないのは あの日。。。

good night Days, good old Days
飛びたいと願った日から 強くなる約束

good night Days, good old Days
帰らないと誓った日から 眠らせた記憶
ah knock on the Days, good old Days
会いたくなるなんて 悔しかった 強がってたけど
また坂を登り 夢描かこう青いキャンバス see you again
続いてくUp and Down ここでそっと寄り道 see you again

Summer Vacation

•August 5, 2008 • Leave a Comment

Summer vacation time has come :)). I’ll seldom be online, probably just 1-2 hours a week.

For the Shakugan no Shana 2 audio drama, I’ve decided the next title that I will translate. It’s the first audio drama on the 3rd CD, Hirai-ke tate komori jiken (Hirai house hostage situation). Imagine what will happen if a normal human criminal (a rather stupid one) is hostaging 3 flamehaze and a mystes.

Oh, one more thing. Tomorrow, Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsuna Koto : Natsu no Sora OST Opening Single by THYME will be released, I think I’ll go and buy it…:D

Song : Plenty of grit

•July 31, 2008 • Leave a Comment

The OST of Slayers Revolution, the continuation of the Slayers series which is aired this summer. I was planning to translate this song, but some part of this song made me confused. Some notes, 現実 (genjitsu : reality) is read as shinkirou (mirage), 魂 (tamashii) is read as inochi, 理想 (risou) is read as omoi, 未来 (mirai) is read as ashita, and 根性 (konjyou) is read as chikara)

Song : SEKIREI

•July 24, 2008 • Leave a Comment

The opening OST of Sekirei, a manga based anime that is aired starting Summer 2008. Some notes on the lyrics, 未来 (mirai) is read as ashita, and 閃光 (senkou) is read as hikari. I can’t say anything about the anime since I haven’t watch it, yet. I’ve saw the trailer, and it seems good. Although I’m a little bit worried about the ending, because, as far as I know, the manga is still ongoing. This anime is of course a little bit ecchi since it’s based on a rather ecchi manga. Some keywords of this anime : Megane-ko, Rori, Tsundere, harem, action, comedy, ecchi, etc. Some fansubbers are already taking this anime as their project, Titanium, … (dotdotdot), musubi, chihiro, and genjou I think. I don’t know much about the new fansubbers (Titanium, …, and Musubi), but Genjou have no finished project (all their old project are stalled), while Chihiro at least have DC II finished.

Summer 2008 Anime

•July 23, 2008 • Leave a Comment

Hmm, there are some good serials of anime that is starting to be aired this summer. Three serials that I was anticipating are Zero no Tsukaima 3, Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto : Natsu no Sora, and Blade of The Immortal.
Zero no Tsukaima 3’s story starts as slow as the previous season’s, I hope it gets better. For those waiting for the subbed version, rejoice, it seems that SS-Eclipse is taking this serial as their new project. They already released 2 episodes this week, with two version, the HQ (x264 1280×720) and the SD one (I remember there was a time when 640×480 is considered as HQ…).
Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto : Natsu no Sora, the opening OST is nice, some of the BGM are also good, I guess that’s expected of Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto. I got the same feeling as watching Someday’s Dreamer when watching Natsu no Sora. Although I feel that there’s something a little bit different. I just watched one episode so there’s not much I can say about the story, all I can say is that the main character is Sora and the story is not clear yet ( I think I need to find the manga…). The group fansubbing this anime, as far as I know, are Rumi and AnY-Conclave.
Blade of the Immortal, the manga is a must read, you’ll get a different feeling reading this manga compared to other manga. Although the anime is little bit of a let down (at least from the first episode), it is still nice to have one of my favorite manga to be adapted to anime. The group fansubbing is KSN, this group also fansubbing Kateikyoushi Hitman Reborn. Although, for KHR I think the SHS-FoSu version is more popular.
