STRIPES

I heard it on the most recent xfd, and well, I wanted to do it. RANKO!!!!! (っ≧ω≦)っ

Looks like Toramaru Shou’s gotten over her old boyfriend and is ready to hit the clubs again!!!
SO ♪~ヽ(╹ε╹)ノ DANCE!

I put a more orange tint to my usual red.

By the way this is my 400th lyrics translation. I’d party over it by clubbing, but no, I really don’t want to, unless it’s in Japan to music like this.

STRIPES
虎柄の毘沙門天|東方星蓮船
Arrangement: Maurits”禅”Cornelis+Tim Vegas
Lyrics: 宇田敬子
Voice Samples: HQ_bot
Vocal: ランコ(豚乙女)

Event: C78

LoopされるようなIt’s like a gray days なんだか気分さえないAlways
どんなにMy hurt抱えてもIt’s over それなら今すぐにYou can change
CoolなStyleでWalk in a this way ちょっと寂しい瞳がFaraway
こんなにMy heart揺らすならIt’s OK それなら今すぐにTry again

It’s like these gray days are looping over and over again
 It’s like this always; there’s no feeling
No matter how long I carry my hurt, it’s over
 Well I guess, “If you start now, you can change”
So I’ll walk this way, in cool style
 Though it’s a bit lonely, eyes far away
If my heart only wavers this much, it’s ok
 I’ll just pick myself up and try again

Don’t be afraid My yellow eyes 瞳は嘘をつかないの
 //Jump in the sky Step on the moon//
Don’t have a pain My black side 真実は色を変えてゆく
 //Jump in the sky Step on the moon//

Don’t be afraid of my yellow eyes; they don’t lie
 //Jump in the sky Step on the moon//
Don’t hold on the pain, my black side; truth will change its color
 //Jump in the sky Step on the moon//

I gonna make you Oh toughなfeeling
You gonna make me So sexyなLady
We gonna do You don’t stop the moving
止まらないで Lady Stripe

I’m gonna make you feel, oh so tough a feeling
You’re gonna make me, such a sexy lady
We’re gonna do it; you, don’t stop us moving
Don’t stop my Lady Stripes

//Jump in the sky Step on the moon// ×2

Fakeないい子はI’m graduation ほんとは早くI want to get away
そんなに我慢しなくてもBe alright それなら今すぐにTake my hand

I’m done with this fake “good girl” act
 Really I just want to get away
I don’t need to hold back; I’ll be alright
 If you’re ready then go ahead and take my hand!

Don’t be afraid My yellow eyes 孤独な影を蹴散らして
 //Jump in the sky Step on the moon//
Don’t have a pain My black side 輝く明日をつかみ取れ
 //Jump in the sky Step on the moon//

Don’t be afraid of my yellow eyes; they’ll and shatter the shadows of loneliness
 //Jump in the sky Step on the moon//
Don’t hold on the pain, my black side; grab the shining tomorrow!
 //Jump in the sky Step on the moon//

I gonna make you Oh toughなfeeling
You gonna make me So sexyなLady
We gonna do You don’t stop the moving
止まらないで Lady Stripe

I’m gonna make you feel, oh so tough a feeling
You’re gonna make me, such a sexy lady
We’re gonna do it; you, don’t stop us moving
Don’t stop my Lady Stripes

I gonna make you Oh toughなfeeling
You gonna make me So sexyなLady
We gonna do You don’t stop the moving
止まらないで Lady Stripe

I’m gonna make you feel, oh so tough a feeling
You’re gonna make me, such a sexy lady
We’re gonna do it; you, don’t stop us moving
Don’t stop my Lady Stripes

Anticipating Reitaisai 8 // 博麗神社例大祭8にの期待

^I couldn’t pass up this picture of Akyuu


RESCHEDULED:
Reitaisai 8 has been rescheduled for May 8th.
“例大祭延期日程決定しました。2011年5月8日日曜日になります。詳しくはこちら   http://www.reitaisai.com/”


NOTICE:

Due to the recent Sendai Earthquake (the largest to ever hit Japan in recorded history), and damage to the event hall and surrounding areas, Hakurei Jinja Reitaisai 8 has been cancelled. The committee in charge is in the process of determining what should be done (full cancellation, rescheduling, etc.) I’ll let you all know if there are any more updates on the matter.

If you know anyone in Japan, make sure they’re ok; the quake effected a very large portion of the country. Let’s all hope for the best: for minimal loss of life, and for those fraught with damages to be helped quickly back on their feet again. It appears the United States is preparing to send aid; I hope that other governments will do the same.


Air Reitaisai 8:
エア例大祭まとめ:会場: @airReitaisai8 頒布物公開: #AirReitaiHanpu

If you would like to participate in the Air Reitaisai 8 Event on Twitter, please follow AirReitaisai8 and search for the #AirReitaisai tag. Any time you would normally just post the #AirReitaisai tag, please post as “@AirReitaisai8 [Tweet Content] #AirReitaisai” This is done to prevent information from flooding people who aren’t participating and need Earthquake/Tsunami information.

A few groups have decided to release their music albums online and request that anyone who would normally buy them donate in some way to the relief efforts. I have only noticed two, if this trend spreads I’ll update with more information.

Update:
Twitter Hashtag #AirReitaiHanpu will contain tweets related to product distribution. Many doujinshi circles have begun to upload the full versions of their products on pixiv, some direct to distribution sites that were stocked before the quake. Some of the online distributions appear to have time limit restrictions. AirReitaisai8 will also be retweeting distribution posts that do not have the #AirReitaiHanpu tag, but have the #AirReitaisai8 tag.

I spent a very, very long time listing to every xfd I was interested in commenting a lot, comparing how much I liked this to how much I liked that, and here’s the result.

As a side note: I’m really sad that Demetori isn’t coming out with a new album; there were rumors, but unfounded. He’s one of my favorite guitarists, and he’s amazing. (Look him up if you haven’t heard his work yet.)

Last Updated: [2011/3/12 21:11 US-CST]


The list, with comments.
[xfd-pkg] in my xfd package. (almost everything)
[xfd-snd] hosted on SoundCloud, you can listen at the bottom of the post or via [site].
[xfd-web] hosted via the [site] link, may be hard to find or non-downloadable.
[xfd-link] if it’s not in the pkg in case you have trouble finding it.

The Rating “Interest” System:
☆☆☆☆☆ (50%) ⇒ ★★★★★ (100%)
・☆☆☆☆☆ is not 0% because I’m not going to spend my time listening to everything; if I’m less than half interested in it I won’t be mentioning it. If you think there’s something good I’ve missed (bound to have happened), mention it in the comments and I’ll give it a listen and update the post until the event comes around.

Here’s the Current Star Distribution:
☆☆☆☆☆:**
★☆☆☆☆:**
★★☆☆☆:*****
★★★☆☆:***
★★★★☆:****
★★★★★:***

Liz Triangle:
・Refrain / Shall We Dance? [site] [xfd-web-link]
  ★★★★☆: It’s a single with only two songs, but both are beautiful, especially the first, which seems to be an arrangement mixed with several songs (at least three). It starts with Locked Girl, then Phantom Ensemble, then Border of Life. ^_^

RD-Sounds | Diao Ye Zong (凋叶棕):
・憩 [site] [xfd-web-link]
  Ikoi
  ★★★★☆: Very beautiful instrumentals. I’m very, very excited about the Circus Reverie arrangement, 詐欺師のスケルツォ. Circus Reverie is from 蓬莱人形~Dolls in Pseudo Paradise. and one of my favorite but least arranged melodies, so I’m doing this ヾ(゚O゚* )ツ三ヾ( *゚O゚)ノ and feel like I’ve got to tell everyone XD. Very much like his previous albums, very beautifully arranged, and Merami/MeramiPop does all the vocals as a plus. If Foreground Eclipse is slowing down, at least I can keep listening to her. I’ve taken a special liking to the whispering track Peaceful Distance, a Voile/Bucharesti arrangement.

Buta-Otome (豚乙女):
・感謝感激雨あられ [site] [xfd-pkg-web]
  Kansha Kangeki Ame Arare
  ★★★☆☆: I’m always happy to hear more from Buta-Otome! This one’s a little short this time around with only three truly new tracks, but I enjoyed them. 契り酒 was probably my favorite off the xfd, which is unusual because I’m not usually a big fan of 華のさかづき大江山, but maybe it’s in part because of that I liked it.

・東の国 (PV-Collection)
  Higashi no Kuni [site]
  ★★☆☆☆: I’ve seen most of these before, but I really do love Ranko’s Sister’s Artwork, and it’ll be fun to revisit those songs.

Sekken-ya (石鹸屋):
・東方マグマー [site] [xfd-pkg-web]
  Touhou Magmaa~
  ★★★★★: Sekkenya’s back!! I’ve missed them! and to my delight, what are the first two tracks on the xfd? Arrangements of Captain Murasa and Fall of Fall, two of my favorite themes. The arrangement of 年中夢中の好奇心 from Fairy Wars is awesome too, but we’ve all learned to expect awesome from Sekkenya and Zekkenya right?

Syrup Comfiture (Syrufit + Poplica*):
・Love=ALL [site] [xfd-pkg-snd]
  ★★★★★: I have a firm belief that every other album Syrufit puts out is absolutely amazing, and the others precariously cling to threads of average over the abyss of awful (`3´). Maybe I’m being too critical (Love Hearts? wasn’t that bad after all… I did really like “true blue”, “and Juliet”; “Myosotis Alpestris” wasn’t bad…), but his good albums are so incredibly good it makes the not so good ones look bad. Just take a look at show me your love, where is love, and this xfd vs. Love Buzz! and Love Hearts?, and you’ll see. Anyway, with my rant out of the way, I loved every track on this xfd, especially: “Listen Up”, “Baby, Baby”, “Desire”, “inner reality”, “Broken puzzle”, “root_A / evenescence”, “root_B / nephilim”, “root_C / =ALL” even Syrufit’s weird “—” interlude? was really cool, and I can’t wait to listen to the talk track at the end. Wait… I just listed 10/12 tracks… #1 anticipated album this event. Hence the top-image, also, the album artwork is beautiful.

TAMAONSEN (魂音泉):
・桃色ディスタンス [site] [xfd-pkg-web]
  Momoiro Distance
  ★★★★☆: I’ve warmed up to this group lately, also hearing loli-chibi voices rapping is utterly priceless. PRICELESS. ことばのあや feat. 桃箱, Witches’ Night, and とある瀟洒な従者の物語 sound great, and Tama’s version of Romonosov:p?’s Bad Apple? is absolutely a must listen.

IOSYS (イオシス):
・東方メレンゲ少女夜行 [site] [xfd-pkg-web]
  Touhou Meringue Shoujo Yakou
  ★★★☆☆: Here’s the Ranko song I’ve been looking for!! Buta-Otome does track #6 (タイジスルモノ) on this, and it’s great :D. I’ve not listened to IOSYS in a while, but I’ve missed its energetic-ness. I like track #3 “あたし色”, there’s another Railgun parody in track #5 “Pandemic of Love” (True Force?). Track #8, “Destination Change” is love, and so is “Burst!!” (#9). ♪~ヽ(╹ε╹)ノ

Yuuhei Satellite (幽閉サテライト):
・手のひらピアニッシモ [site] [xfd-pkg]
  Tenohira Pianissimo
  ★☆☆☆☆: Apparently I missed their release at C79, but I’ll be sure to get this one. 弱虫ナイフ, ひとりぼっちメロディ, and 小悪魔りんご shine brighter than the rest.

Alice’s Emotion:
・overture|KANA [site] [xfd-pkg-snd]
  [REDALiCE Disc]
  ★★★☆☆: “To be Free”, “Caligo”, “From the Vertex”, and “Night of Burning Star” are my favorites, Caligo is particularly exceptional.

・overture|SUWA [site] [xfd-pkg-snd]
  [t+pazolite Disc]
  ★★★★☆: “faith ofthe 540° (REDALiCE Remix)”, “Rave ON, Rage ON!”, “Retropolitans”, “Fly you higher in the Night”, “Psycho-nostalgia”, and “桜華月想” are my favorites. “Retropolitans” and “Fly you higher in the Night” bump this album above KANA, and ever since 12.3 I’ve liked Suwako more anyway ◕‿‿◕, and since his new album, t+pazolite’s been more on my radar.

EastNewSound:
・Definite Energy [site] [xfd-pkg-web]
  ★★☆☆☆: I still love you EastNewSound, but I miss Izumin. I really like the the first track, “Non stop dream” and “Fantastic Sequence”; it’s been a while since they’ve released a non-full-vocal album, but maybe that’s just because it’s Reitaisai. “Miniature Garden ~変わらぬ想い~” stands far above the rest in terms of vocals, and I’m really looking forward to hearing the full version.

C-Clays/K2-Sound:
・FIORITA -フィオリタ- [site] [xfd-pkg-web]
  [C-Clays]
  ★★☆☆☆: A beautiful album. I like their pick of songs (Reincarnation!!) quite a bit this time around, songs ranging from soft like FELT, drifting easily into the SOUND HOLIC range. “TeTracTys”, “Infinite Nightmare”, and “Djedefre” are quite good.

・RUSH! -ラッシュ!- [site] [xfd-pkg-web]
  [K2-Sound]
  ★★☆☆☆: “Reversing Blackout” is a very beautiful instrumental and I like “Calling me” as well, but not much else really jumps out at me… wait the end is redeeming: “Nodule” puts Kotoge Mai’s vocals to use, and the result is very, very beautiful. With both FIORITA and RUSH having three great songs, I’d put them at about equal, between the two of them three great instrumentals and three great vocals.

・AGGRESSIVE EXPLOSION [site] [xfd-pkg-web]
  [C-Clays+tsunamix]
  ☆☆☆☆☆: This is part of a line of tsunamix’s “AGGRESSIVE” albums, and I heartily appreciate tracks like “NIGHT FLIGHT”, “the Last Rites”, “Pretty SHOOTER” for their PC-98 sources, and the 90s-style-electric-sound-emphasized techno (why it sounds very DDR) rides heavy on the nostalgia factor, but it’s definitely not at the top of my list. In addition to the two I mentioned, I thought “ParameTRICK GHOST -Hi-Fi Mix-” was catchy too ^_^.

SOUND HOLIC feat. 709sec.:
・Scarlet Shooter [site] [xfd-pkg-web]
  ★☆☆☆☆: Very like every other SOUND HOLIC+709sec. album, just as great. I’m not in a great hurry to grab it, but he’s guitarist/vocalist with a good reliable sound, and that’s worth something. “Desolation World” and “Wall of Knowledge” are probably my favorites, but that’ll have to do in part with my love of the originals.

FELT:
・Flower Flag [site] [xfd-pkg-snd]
  ★★★★★: Absolutely, absolutely, beautiful (so I’ll forgive you the trouble I had to go through to get that xfd…), “TRULY GLORY” is absolutely amazing, easily my favorite on the album, but there’s not a song on the album I don’t love.

Hatsunetsumiko’s (発熱巫女~ず):
・Coda [site] [xfd-pkg-web]
  ★★☆☆☆: “Marionette” is great and my favorite on the album (TAMAONSEN!!), and “Beautiful Dreams” is a great English song arrangement (we have few of those), but “Pages” is definitely looking to be a star (no pun intended).. I would have to say you’re losing to your spin-off though a though. Tim Vegas’s arrangements win in being more interesting… (especially when they’re remixed right they hit the very top of the scale) but their sound’s losing in “beauty” to FELT, it’s lost its jazzy house beginnings a bit, and the album didn’t have a song that made me fall in love (maybe because there was no 陽子?). STRIPES is great (especially because Ranko’s singing) but I’m not judging your re-mixes, after all I like the originals better for both :x. Well, I’m judging you harshly because I still love you, and 桜花之恋塚 ~ Flower of Life is one of my favorite arrangements of all time.

ふぉれすとぴれお (Forest Pireo Records | FP Records):
・Memory Box [site] [xfd-web]
  ☆☆☆☆☆: I really liked the first two songs, but … not the rest. Sorry FP. Didn’t work out this time. Bring me another Spring★!!!!

星色夜空 // Hoshiiro Yozora

Requested by: YSen
Here’s the Touhou M-1 that the song apparently relates to: [YT-link] (Used as the theme after the 3rd M-1) Kiri-chan!!

Here’s the PV that accompanies the song (released sometime after the CD): [YT-Link]

A story about Alice and Marisa.

Sorry for the wait again ^_^;;

Notes:
“Ursa major, by your side..” Implying that Marisa is somewhere up north?
Ursa major – the “Great Bear” constellation that includes Polaris, the north star; also known as the “Big Dipper”.

The song can work either way; Marisa narrator or Alice narrator. The PV makes it Alice-narrator, but lines in the song itself like “your name is hard to remember” (Margatroid) and “the doll you gave me” makes more sense as Marisa-narrator. I think it’s fine either way though (*・▽・*)

星が拡がる 空 一人立ち止まって
伝えられずにいる この想い 見上げて
目に見えるものは 全部 愛おしくて
耳に届く音は 何もかも 美しい

I stood alone under a sky filled with stars
Unable to convey my feelings, I looked to the sky
Everything I saw was lovely
Every sound I heard was beautiful

星を 線で結んで 君を描いて
瞳の中に 映した
いつも 強がる 私は突っぱねて
本当は 君が居ないと 駄目なのに

Crossing lines over the stars I drew a picture of you,
Letting your image drift before my eyes
I always rejected you, trying to act tough
But the truth is, I’m useless without you

遠く 遠く 続いてる 空
その向こうで 君は 何想う
いつか消える あの星の下
永遠を願い 想い見上げ

Distant, distant far-reaching sky
Beyond it I wonder, what are you thinking of?
Under that star that will sometime disappear
I wish for eternity, thinking of you, looking to the sky

強く 弱く 光を放つ
君の近くに 北斗七星
そんな 輝きであるように
君を想い 願い掛けて

Strongly, now weakly shining
Ursa major, by your side..
In the same way that it sparkles
I think of you, wishing…

夜が明けていく 君を想えなくなる
朝が来る頃には また強がってしまう
微かな光は もっと 愛おしくて
朝へ向かう 音に 耳を固く塞ぐ

When dawn breaks, I am unable to think of you
For when morning comes, I put on my act again
The fainter lights are much more lovely..
Facing dawn, I plug my ears against the sound..

時を止めて 夜が続いてく魔法が
この手に あればいいのに
本当は 君と居るときも 同じように
ずっと 思っているのに

I wish I had the power to
Stop time, and keep this night going forever
The truth is, when I’m with you,
It’s always on my mind

長く 永く 続いてる 夜
この闇の中で 君を想う
いつも 隠して持ち歩いた
君がくれた人形見つめ

Ever long-lasting night
In the darkness I think of you,
Staring at the doll you gave me
Secretly, I’ve always kept it with me

弱く 強く 何度も 君の
名前を 繰り返し 呼んでいる
よく間違えては 怒られた
覚え難くい 愛おしい名前

Weakly, now strongly countless times
I call your name, again and again
When I’d get it wrong, you always got mad at me
Your lovely, hard to remember name

遠く 遠く 続いてる 空
その向こうで 君は 何想う
いつか消える この星の下
永遠を願い 想い見上げ

Distant, distant far-reaching sky
Beyond it I wonder, what are you thinking of?
Under that star that will sometime disappear
I wish for eternity, thinking of you, looking to the sky

強く 弱く 光を放つ
君の近くに 北斗七星
そんな 輝きであるように
君を想い 願い掛けて

Strongly, now weakly shining
Ursa major, by your side..
In the same way that it sparkles
I think of you, wishing…

I’m The Seeker (Maybe Each Your Word Calls For it) || Truths, Ironies, The Secret Lyrics

If you haven’t heard, Suzuori’s leaving *sadface* (◕︵◕)….

The other mostly English post is relatively popular, so I figured I’d do it as part of finishing up Foreground Eclipse’s discography. Technically a translation post, because I’m the Seeker has lines in Japanese. :P

If anyone wants I can post the English lyrics to Missing Loving… and Suffering, but neither of those have any Japanese in them, so I can’t fake a translation post with them :P

With this I’ve posted every song (forgot about THE DISTANT JOURNEY TO YOU… thought I’d done that already…) for both of Foreground Eclipse’s full albums. I might do 恋詠 a little later. But I do have two requests I haven’t done yet… hahahaha….. ^_^;;;;;;;; (Planning on doing those this weekend at the latest).

Last night
I saw one of them in my dream
Last night
I chased one of them in my dream

They say “We speak in different voices
when fighting with the ones we’ve loved”
I know we also speak that way
when looking after our own

I like to play hide and seek
But before you count 50
I’m sure I will get tired
I think I’d rather seek

I know that you speak in different voices
Don’t be afraid show me who you are

ここに無いものを求めて
回り廻る私に
言の葉を紡ぐあなたへ
この歌を

Searching for things not here
From me, spinning ’round
To you, weaving words
I give this song

Last night
I saw one of them in my dream
Last night
I chased one of them in my dream

Last night
I saw one of them in my dream
Last night
I chased one of them in my dream

They say “we speak in different voices
when fighting with the ones we’ve loved”
I think we always speak that way
but on the edge of life

I like to play hide and seek
But when you count 100
I realize at last
I’d like to go away

形つけては並べて
積み上げては崩して
目に映るものはすべて
幻で

I give them shape and line them up
I stack them then knock them down
Everything I see with my eyes
I take for an illusion

言葉はどこにでもあるの (Show me)
そこには心はあるの (Who you are)
すべて失ったあと
見えるでしょう

Words are everywhere. (Show me)
And there lies a heart. (Who you are)
When you’ve lost everything,
Then, you’ll be able to see it.

it’s far better to skip right now
I’m sure that next one’s not too loud
like this one so don’t worry

Oh your stereo or iPod is
running on their random-play
It’s so funny
if I’m The Seeker comes after skip

Now my throat burns from screaming
Let’s dance to the music

One more day before you go
One more night everybody dance it all away
Swinging arms, jumping bodies
Don’t stop even if lights out

This song is a cover of the
famous “Is She U.N. Owen?”
I was strongly impressed
when I listen to the covers by
COOL&CREATE, Silver Forest,
SYNC.ART’S or the SOUND HOLIC
But it’s hard to rearrange
cause its melody’s so complex

One more day before you go
One more night everybody dance it away
Don’t stop even if lights out

I wrote this song in hurry
I know this lyric is funny
I wish at least one of you like this song
That’s all


Forget Me Not

Today, Suzuori reported that he would be leaving Foreground Eclipse. (ノд・。) [link(jpn)] (I have this really weird habit of remembering him as Suzunori, that I can’t explain…)

(´;ω;`) I’ll never be able to see the original group live like I wanted to…

Anyway as a farewell, here’s a translation of the song he wrote: “Forget Me Not”, which of course, is oddly appropriate.

I always have to be careful with the translations for these songs, because I love this band ^_^;

I’m always there by your side
Cause I know you’re always here by my side

乾いた風の匂い
追いかけた冬の空へ
夢はここにあるの?
過ぎた時は戻らないから

Scents of a dry wind
Off in the winter sky I chased after
But are there dreams here?
For time gone by will not return

I will keep these beautiful memories
inside the center part of my heart
I can’t say enough Thank-You’s

Let’s make a promise now
That we will meet again someday
So it’s not our farewell

小さな花の種を
浮かべよう心の海へ

Let’s set this small flower’s seed
Afloat upon the heart’s sea

君はどこへ行くの?
忘れないでここにいるから

Where are you going?
Forget me not, for I will be here.

Remember I’m always by your side
Even if you get lost on your way

降り止まぬ白い空へ
打ち付ける窓の雨
眠れなくて
静かな夜に鳴り響く鐘の音
覚えてるよ

Off in a white sky where it just won’t stop pouring
The rain beats on the windows
I can’t sleep
I remember, the bells ringing
That silent night

Hope doing well somewhere
And I’m still here looking at the sky
From my room on my own

You’re not here by my side
But your smile is still in my mind
I won’t say I miss you
