細胞キオク // Saibou Kioku

^I might have met one Tokyo girl that looked as cute as Ohana.

Requested by: Hazel

I really do love this show. It’s not “cool” or “crazy” enough for any of my friends, so I’ll just keep this show to myself, but I was going to give this an episode or two chance, and it far exceeded my expectations after I got myself into it. I’m glad to see an anime original doing so spectacularly.

It’s definitely one of those shows you’ve definitely got to show to your kids if you ever have them (I’ll never have them D:<) – but I'll keep it just in case…

Notes:
あの子 usually would refer to a girl (and scars left by fingernails also sort of points that way don't you think?), it can refer to a boy, but I’m just going to go for “you” – it’s possible it’s one of those “male narrated songs” sung by a woman, or that it’s just a “precious friend” sort of thing, or you can drift off into your yuri fantasies if you’d like.

時間が後ろへ流されてく 手を振る間もなく流されてく
あの子の匂いが薄れてゆく 赤い目をこすった まだ眠りたくない

jikan ga ushiro e nagasareteku te wo furu ma mo naku nagasareteku
ano ko no nioi ga usureteyuku akai me wo kosutta mada nemuritakunai

Time is swept behind me, even as I wave my hand it’s already gone
Your scent is weakening; I rub my red eyes – I don’t want to sleep yet

夢を見るたびオトナになる 大事なものから零れてくの?

yume wo miru tabi otona ni naru daiji na mono kara koboreteku no?

Every time I dream I’m an adult –
 I wonder if you’ll overflow from things that are important to me?

もしも明日目が覚める頃すべて忘れてしまうとしても
爪で掻いた傷跡もいつかは消えてしまうとしても

moshi mo ashita me ga sameru koro subete wasureteshimau to shitemo
tsume de kaita kizuato mo itsuka wa kieteshimau to shitemo

Even if tomorrow when I wake up, I’ve forgotten everything…
Even if the scars you’ve left one day disappear…

ぼくの細胞のヒトツがずっと覚えてるから

boku no saibou no hitotsu ga zutto oboeteru kara

At least one of my cells will remember forever

明日は今日より笑えるかな もっと遠くへと抜け出せるかな
あの子は一緒に来てくれるかな 赤い目をこすった もう眠らなくちゃ

ashita wa kyou yori waraeru ka na motto tooku he to nukedaseru kana
ano ko wa issho ni kitekureru kana akai me wo kosutta mou nemuranakucha

I wonder if tomorrow, I’ll be able to smile more than today, I wonder if I’ll be able to go farther?
I wonder if you’ll come with me? I rub my red eyes – I’ve got to sleep

夢の中でもフタリでいよう 大事なものなら零れないよね?

yume no naka demo futari de iyou daiji na mono nara koborenai yo ne?

Even if it’s just in our dreams, let’s be together –
 if you’re so important you won’t be forgotten right?

もしも明日目が覚める頃すべて忘れてしまうとしても
爪で掻いた傷跡もいつかは消えてしまうとしても

moshi mo ashita me ga sameru koro subete wasureteshimau to shitemo
tsume de kaita kizuato mo itsuka wa kieteshimau to shitemo

Even if tomorrow when I wake up, I’ve forgotten everything…
Even if the scars you’ve left one day disappear…

明日目が覚める頃あの子がトナリに居てくれたら
夢の最後になんとなく繋いだ温度がそこにあったら

ashita me ga sameru koro ano ko ga tonari ni itekuretara
yume no saigo ni nantonaku tsunaida ondo ga soko ni attara

If when I wake up, you are there beside me…
If at the end of my dream, your warmth is still there…

ぼくの細胞のヒトツがずっと忘れないから

boku no saibou no hitotsu ga zutto wasurenai kara

At least one of my cells will never forget

ぼくの細胞ヒトツヒトツがきみを覚えてるから

boku no saibou hitotsu hitotsu ga kimi wo oboeteru kara

Since each of my cells remember you

忘れないから

wasurenai kara

I won’t forget you…

^There’s got to be a better place to use this, but well – this was a memorable moment.

    Someone’s on a roll…

    I have to ask -because it’s someone’s work to be annoying about it,- have you planned to work on the OP2 album as well as the special ED/Insert from episode 22 whenever it’s released?

    Thanks for this! Almost forgot to properly thank.

    Are you ever going to translate Remind on Sally’s album? ; w;

    • Since I said I’d do it immediately and then didn’t – I’ll try to get it out today ;w;

    Awesome, two request finished in a day, thank you so much, kafka.

  1. oh man, I am really liking the looks of this. And Ohara looks like Nobuko from LoveCom to me, so another plus for me. I will definitely be checking this out.
