図書館で会った人だぜ // Toshokan de Atta Hito DA ZE

I tried to find a picture of Marisa cosplaying as Remilia Scarlet, but to no avail.

This song is a parody of: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMGP9atKrXQ 美術館出会った人だろ – (This band inspired K-ON by the way).

Thrusting a magic book out at me
Saying “Why don’t you just take it and leave already?”

この暗く閉じた世界から、君へ // Kono Kuraku Tojita Sekai Kara, Kimi e

A song from inside a sealed coffin in digital Hijiri at-the-ends-of-the-earth-inside-a-floating-ship-verse. (This explains the auto-tune! 嘘)

Notes:
“Remember you” is also along the lines of “Memorialize you”

カンジョウ ノ マテンロウ 高く高く積み上げてく
まるでそれだけが 君を偲ぶ術であるように

kan’jou no maten’ rou takaku takaku tsumiageteku
maru de sore dake ga kimi wo shinobu sube de aru you ni

I’m raising up an emotional skyscraper higher and higher
As if that were the only way I could remember you…

分かってはいなかった
人も妖も観てた私を
受け入れるほど 彼らは
割り切れてないこと

wakatte wa inakatta
hito mo ayakashi mo miteta watashi wo
ukeireru hodo karera wa
warikiretenai koto

I did not understand how
The people and ayakashi I looked upon could be
So uncleanly divided that
Both would accept me…

そうやって カンジョウ ノ マテンロウ 高く高く積み上げてく
崩れないようにそっと 手を添えてる たった一人で

sou yatte kanjou no maten’rou takaku takaku tsumiageteku
kuzurenai you ni sotto te wo soeteru tatta hitori de

And so, I’m raising up an emotional skyscraper higher and higher
Taking care, all alone to make sure that it will not crumble…

ねえ 聞いて
私 本当は 誰も 愛せてなかったの
君を失って 悲しすぎて 涙に暮れた果て
誰かの心に触れる事に 怖がっていただけなので

nee kiite
watashi hon’tou wa dare mo aisetenakatta no
kimi wo ushinatte kanashisugite namida ni kureta hate
dare ka no kokoro ni fureru koto ni kowagatteita dake nano de

Would you listen?
Actually, I… couldn’t love anyone.
After losing you, I was so depressed and drowned in my tears
That I was afraid to let anyone close to my heart.

つまり誰も彼も
私が無価値にしてた 自ら

tsumari dare mo kare mo
watashi ga mukachi ni shiteta mizukara

In other words, I…
Accepted everyone, equally worthless.

そうやって カンジョウ ノ マテンロウ 高く高く積み上げてく
歴史に名前が残る聖人にでも なったつもりで
砂上の楼閣 言うまでもなく 脆くも崩れ去る
気付いたら 君の顔もしばらく 思い出せなかった

sou yatte kan’jou no maten’rou takaku takaku tsumiageteku
rekishi no namae ga nokoru seijin’ ni demo natta tsumori de
sajou no roukaku iu made mo naku moroku mo kuzuresaru
kidzuitara kimi no kao mo shibaraku omoidasenakatta

And so, I’m raising up an emotional skyscraper higher and higher
With a mind to become a saint whose name would be remembered
But my tower built upon the sand, needless to say, easily crumbled.
Before I knew it, for a while, I couldn’t even remember your face.

ねえ 聞いて
私 本当に 何も 成す事なかったの
やり直せるなら 一人じゃなく 誰かと手を取って
歌を紡いでく そうしてやっと 光が満ちるだろう
もし 面と向かい 笑い合える世界をつくれたら
君のことだから はにかんでは 嫌がるかも
でも 付けさせてよ
君の名前を

nee kiite
watashi hon’tou ni nani mo nasu koto nakatta no
yarinaoseru nara hitori janaku dareka to te wo totte
uta wo tsumuiteku sou shite yatto hikari ga michiru darou
moshi men’ to mukai warai aeru sekai wo tsukuretara
kimi no koto dakara hanikan’de wa iyagaru kamo
demo tsukesasete yo
kimi no namae wo

Would you listen?
Actually, I… wasn’t able to do anything.
If I were able to do it all over again, I wouldn’t have tried alone, but taken someone’s hand
Weaving a melody, if I would have done that, surely then finally, there would have been light.
If I were able one day to make a world were people could face each other, and laugh together
Well… I’m sure you’d be embarrassed, and tell me no, but…
Please let me…
Call it your name.



ヤクプリ // Yakupuri

Congratulations on Hina for making it to Round 2 by the way in Seimoe.

Sekkenya/Zekkenya songs spin me around from time to time…

Anyway, thoughts are welcome :3

I’ve been out for a week because I’ve been studying for the JLPT N1, which I took a few days ago (and I think there’s a good chance I passed \o/) and then right after I got back I had to move to another room…, maybe I’ll take pictures of my new living space when it’s well, functional.

Also, since I have 35+ requests currently outstanding, I will not accept any new requests at least until the new year (except preemptive requests for C81 songs). Depending on how much I can do it might be longer, or I might have to limit requests in some other way ^^; (I can only do so much…)

Oh, if you’re feeling in the holiday giving mood – Donate! >:D (you can do so on this lonely and forgotten page, via paypal) [link]

Notes:
Yakupuri=Yaku+Puri=Misfortune+Print=The print of the Yaku symbol on Hina’s skirt.

Homudawake=品陀和氣命(homudawakenomikoto)=誉田別尊(hontawakenomikoto)=大鞆和気命(ootomowakenomikoto)=応神天皇(oujintennou)=…
Was the 15th Emperor of Japan, first of the Tumulus Period (meaning they made lots of Tombs) and one of the first emperors that historians think actually existed. [ja-wiki]

As for the “that would shock even Homudawake” might refer to the fact that he had dozens of consorts and children, but probably has more to do with the fact that he was later enshrined and worshipped as 八幡神 (Yahata no Kami/Hachiman-Jin) a warrior diety. (Yahata/Hachiman=Eight/Many flags). [ja-wiki]. You could say that a warrior emperor/god who has been around all sorts wouldn’t ordinarily be shocked at the behavior of lower classes or warriors or death or what have you. Anyway, it’s just a guess.

放生会 (Houjoue) is the ceremonial release of wild captive animals (it is meant to show respect for life, not like the European practice of the running of the hounds and whatnot). It is a ceremony that started at the main Hachiman shrine (Usa) – I translated it as “catch and release” which isn’t really sufficient, but I’ve got to keep those lines from getting too long. I can only think that it has something to do with making up for all the death a warrior must cause. Anyway this event originally originated from a tale of one of the Sakyamuni Buddha’s former lives (Rusui) in which he saved the fish from a parched lake and set them adrift in a stream. – It’s a long shot, but you can tie this to 流し雛 (Nagashibina) which is tied to Kagiyama Hina’s origins. Nagashibina (which also shows up in the song translated as “cursed dolls”) is an event that you tie the misfortune, ills, or sins to dolls and set them afloat on a river stream. So, you see the similarities between letting captive animals free to atone for other deaths you’ve caused, and setting your sins on dolls to free yourself. Right?

The sexual references/mild-innuendo, “It may hurt at first”, “look (at me) with clinging eyes”, and the fact that “embrace” 抱く is often used as a synonym for sex, points also to the cult practice of raping young girls to remove ones sins. It’s one of those things that is kind of like oba-sute in that we’re not sure to what extent it might have actually been done, but it’s a hot topic in plots from time to time (see Mirai Nikki, and I’m sure some H-products use that plot). Anyway, it’s related to the above. Sort of.

“Even if we change into Yahata-no-kami, it’s only in part!” Wakemitama is the splitting of a god’s spirit across many shrines. Yahata-no-Kami/Hachiman-Jin is probably the most enshrined Shinto/Buddhist diety in all of Japan, so this makes a lot of sense, sort of. – Anyway, it’s also possible to interpret the line as “even if (something) changes into Yahata no Kami, it’ll only be a part” as in, even if he appears, we don’t need to worry… or something – but right after the spinning/mixing line, there’s not much weight to that interpretation.

“I’m sure I’m the only one who would embrace someone like you
So vulgar that even Homudawake would be shocked
I’m sure I’m the only one who would find someone lost like you
Wonderful and with such an exalted status”
^I hated having to switch the lines on this (1234->2143) but it just wouldn’t work otherwise D: Oh well. I’m sure the “wonderful and with such an exalted status” is supposed to be ironic, but I’m just not exactly sure how… Maybe it’s just poking at “high-class” individuals most often being truly the most lowly of us all.

“with an existence so mean” mean as in: “base, vile, poor, low, stingy, sordid”, but also as in “small”

In Japanese “exiled” is “punishment by flowing”, which is like floating down the river – ie. Nagashibina. Anyway.

I wonder if you would call this a tragedy or a comedy –
That it was I who met you, outcast in this lukewarm world?
Come closer.. look here with your clinging eyes and come to me~
It may hurt at first, but I won’t let anything bad happen – Alright?

不撓不屈のモーメント // Futoufukutsu no Moment

God I love the energy in this song! Also, the lyrics remind me The Legend of Hakurei-Chang.

Here is my groundless “bungaku shoujo” type imagination drive: The captain of this ship admired if not loved Murasa while she was alive (or if this is years later, admired and loved her through stories about her). Ashamed of himself he is ready to make up for it by releasing her, even if he is only releasing a demon, even if he must die to do it.

Notes:
“quick to anger” is more like “prone to irrational bursts of anger” in this case.

輝き続ける 記憶を頼りに
波の音に消えてゆく声を 辿る
おい 膝 笑うな そんな場合じゃない
嘘でもいい 下向く暇すら 与えないで

Relying on my still glimmering memories
We reach her voice fading in the sound of the waves
No! This is no time for my knees to give way!
I don’t care what you say, just don’t give me a moment to look down!!

八つ当たりと言われてしまえば それまでの話だ
自らの恐れを 他人にも味わわせ続けた

They may call me quick to anger, but there’s nothing I can say back
All I’ve been doing is let others know my fears!

きっと彼女は気付いていた
その痛みに
閉ざされていた この扉の鍵に
いとも容易く運命というなの錨に縛られた
私の醜さに

I’m sure she has realized
That pain,
The keys to these gates where she’s locked away,
And the ugliness of me, so easily tied
To the anchor of fate

不条の理 貼り付けられては
藻掻く事も許されなかった 身体を
涙も枯れ果て 渇いた心で
暴れだした 灼熱マグマな 血潮を
さあ 解き放て 宜候!

They may say I’ve lost all sense of reason
But I cannot let myself falter
My tears have dried up and my heart as well
But now a scorching hot magma rushes through my veins
Now!! This is it! Keep her steady!!!

抜け出したかのように見えても
回り込まれては
罰であるかのように 私を溺れさせ続ける

Even if it looks like we’ve made it through
We’re surrounded
Like a sentence of guilt, it keeps trying to drown me

私は悟る
理不尽さの荒波に 苦しみ喘ぐ事が運命ならば
覚悟を決めて 敢えて行こう
闇の中を
彼女のもと この船と共に

I suddenly realized
If it is my fate to gasp in anguish in those irrational waves
I’ll fix my determination, and keep moving forward
Into the darkness
With this ship, to where she lies

輝き続ける 記憶を頼りに
波の音に消えてゆく声を 辿る
おい 膝 笑うな そんな場合じゃない
嘘でもいい 下向く暇すら 与えず
さあ 踏み出させろ 宜候!

Relying on my still glimmering memories
We reach her voice fading in the sound of the waves
No! This is no time for my knees to give way!
I don’t care what you say, just don’t give me a moment to look down!!

不条の理 貼り付けられては
藻掻く事も許されなかった 身体を
涙も枯れ果て 渇いた心で

But I cannot let myself falter

古ぼけた時計 絶え間なく 時を刻み続け
変わる事の無い 一枚絵 まだ眺め続けている

Without interruption an old clock keeps track of time
Staring at a single unchanging picture page

時間だけが流れてゆく 景色だけを置き去りに
朽ち果ててゆくものだけが 物語を終わらせる
誰の目にも触れないように 読まれない本のように
閉じ込めた絵画の中で またページがめくられる

Only time keeps flowing, leaving the landscape behind
Only those that decay can bring an end to the story
So that no one’s eyes might see, like a book never read
Within this locked image, another page is turned

日々を繰り返して どれほどの月日を通りすぎて
重ねた年月を 降り積もる 塵だけが伝えている

Days keep repeating as uncountable days and months go by
The months and years pile upon one another, leaving only their dust behind

「いままで」と「これから」だけの 「今」の空いた1ページ
また一枚 また一枚 繰り返しめくり続け
ただ進み繰り返される 切り抜かれた絵の中で

There is only one page, “now” blank, made from “up until now” and “starting from now”
As another page and now another page keeps turning
Repeating on and on again inside this cut out image

いままでずっと これからずっと
繰り返すだけの景色
いままでずっと これからずっと
切り抜いた時間の中

Up until now, forever – From now on, forever

Ever repeating landscape
Up until now, forever – From now on, forever

Up until now, forever – From now on, forever
