奇跡の海 // Kiseki no Umi

Deedlit (alcd)

So apparently, The Record of the Lodoss War was originally based on transcripts of a group of people’s Dungeons and Dragons campaigns. That’s just too awesome.

Another anime I know nothing about but have heard the name of – before my time I guess ^^;

奇跡の海
 Kiseki no Umi
 Sea of Miracles
ロードス島戦記/The Record of the Lodoss War Opening Theme
Maaya Sakamoto, Yoko Kanno

闇の夜空が 二人分かつのは
呼び合う心 裸にするため

yami no yozora ga futari wakatsu no wa
yobiau kokoro hadaka ni suru tame

A night sky filled with darkness separates us
To strip bear our hearts calling out for each other

飾り脱ぎ捨て すべて失くす時
何かが見える

kazari nugisute subete nakusu toki
nanika ga mieru

Only when you let go of adornments, lose everything
Can some things be seen

風よ 私は立ち向かう
行こう 苦しみの海へと

kaze yo watashi wa tachimukau
yukou kurushimi no umi e to

O wind, I will face you!
Let us go, to the seas of suffering!

絆 この胸に刻んで
砕ける 波は果てなくとも

kizuna kono mune ni kizan’de
kudakeru nami wa hatenakutomo

Inscribing our bond into my heart
It matters not if the breaking waves are endless

何を求めて 誰も争うの?
流した血潮 花を咲かせるの?

nani wo motomete dare mo arasou no?
nagashita chishio hana wo sakaseru no?

What do you seek, making everyone your enemy?
Can a flower blossom from all this bloodshed?

尊き明日 この手にするまで
出会える日まで

michibiki ashita kono te ni suru made
deaeru hi made

Leading on, until I grasp a tomorrow
Until the day we meet again

風よ 私は立ち向かう
行こう 輝きを目指して

kaze yo watashi wa tachimukau
yukou kagayaki wo mezashite

O wind, I will face you!
Let us go, towards the shining light!

祈り この胸に抱きしめ
彷徨う 闇のような未来

inori kono mune ni dakishime
samayou yami no you na mirai

Embracing prayers in my heart
I wander, the future filled with darkness

風よ 私はおそれない
愛こそ見つけだした奇跡よ

kaze yo watashi wa osorenai
ai koso mitsukedashita kiseki yo

O wind, I will not fear you!
For I have found the miracle of love!

君を 信じてる歓び
嵐は 愛に気づくために吹いてる

kimi wo shin’jiteru yorokobi
arashi wa ai ni kidzuku tame ni fuiteru

What joy I feel, believing in you
This storm is blowing to realize love

    You can tell it has that d&d feel (or old school fantasy if you prefer), however they have native RPGs in Asia and I know of one anime based on novels based on such P&P RPG – it was published as “Rune Soldier” in USA, it’s quite funny. Record of Lodoss War was okay (if you watched OVAs first as little to no introduction is made for characters and their history in TV), but this song is peculiar. Maaya Sakamoto had a real good start working with Youko Kanno. Those vocals here are some of my favourite ^.^
