アンプリファイア (Amplifier) ⏐ 幽閉サテライト

Title: アンプリファイア (Amplifier)
Circle: 幽閉サテライト (Yuuhei Satellite)
Vocals: senya
Lyrics: かませ虎
Arrangement: 奥山ナマリ
Album: 東方PARTYBOX 03 | Web
Publisher: Melonbooks Records
Original: 妖怪寺へようこそ (Welcome to Youkai Temple)

I had this song on repeat like crazy for the last few weeks. Is it possible for your ears to get exhausted? It’s almost as if Choujuu Gigaku themselves were at it… Well, one could imagine. Btw, I took a more ‘lyrical’ approach to the translation. I think it worked, somewhat. ‘Almost singable’, I reckon…? 😛

Cornelia ⏐ Halozy

Title: Cornelia
Circle: Halozy
Arrange: Crouka
Vocal: 長尾ちえみ (Nagao Chiemi)
Lyrics: sumijun
Album: Grand Slam | Web
Release: Comiket 91
Original: Pierrot of the Star-Spangled Banner (星条旗のピエロ)

As I’ve mentioned earlier, here is the second Grand Slam translation I’ve promised you. For a good time after I got the CD, I was singing along to the lyrics of this song, which was kinda funny, since I had honestly bought the CD for ‘Stadium of Love’ (I ended up loving the whole album).

Yes, I’m a strange person.

恋のスタジアム (Stadium of Love) ⏐ Halozy

Title: 恋のスタジアム (Stadium of Love)
Circle: Halozy
Vocal: 水瀬ましろ (Minase Mashiro)
Lyrics: sumijun
Album: Grand Slam | Web
Event: Comiket 91
Original: The Primal Scene of Japan the Girl Saw (少女が見た日本の原風景)

I first heard this song from the event-exclusive “Extra Ver.” CD that Halozy released during Comiket 90, and I knew that I just had to have the full CD when it comes out. I was not disappointed. Expect to see at least one more translation of a song from this album 😉

レオニダスとレクイエム ⏐ 月蝕燈

Title: レオニダスとレクイエム 「Leonidas and Requiem」
Circle: 月蝕燈 | BOOTH Shop
Arrangement: corico    (erum.)
Vocal/Lyrics: 左右田 左    (Souda Hidari)
Aerial Lyrics: NeNe
Mix/Mastering: L75-3

Album: レオニダスとレクイエム | BOOTH | Web | Soundcloud preview
Release: Apollo A-05 (18 Nov 2016)
: The Maid and the Pocket Watch of Blood (メイドと血の懐中時計)

First off, I’d like to mention that this song is a web-only single that you can purchase from BOOTH (link above). You can a debit card there by the way, provided that it’s permitted for overseas spending. The price is really cheap, considering the quality of music. Seriously, listen to that preview I linked above. You won’t regret it.

You might have noticed that I have excluded the romanisation for the ‘aerial lyrics’ (the ones in brackets). It’s actually a made up language being sung, that seems to be somewhat based on Latin. The Japanese lyrics are the ‘translation’ of what is being sung. So, in an odd odd way, I have written a translation of a ‘translation’ (lol).

Regardless, this is a song of love and loss: Remilia’s requiem for Sakuya, her Leonidas.

20 March Edit:
Since there are apparently people around who didn’t bother to check and so forth, it seems that I have to explicitly mention that the circle prohibits the act of people uploading their songs online. So guys, in short, no going around uploading videos, with or without my translation ‘subbed’ on it, okay?

So, as an act of deterrence, I have decided to remove the original Japanese kanji lyrics on this post. If you want to read the aforementioned, you can find them in the BOOTH link above. For those unable to read Japanese, I’ve kept the romanisation around for reference.

Event Re-Release: Comiket 91

‘Like a dog and a cat?’
— album booklet

I guess you could call this another ‘Dog and Cat-like’ post, so soon after the last one (How did that happen?). It’s a bit of an eye-opener when you realise that C77 was way back in 2009. Halozy is old, lol.

I’ve only tangentially translated the lines coloured light green. Those are … well, the robo-speak lines. They’re largely nonsensical in my opinion, so I left them like that. This is a rather unique song, I can say.

Event Re-Release: Comiket 91
Original: Catastrophe in Bhavaagra 〜 Wonderful Heaven (有頂天変 〜 Wonderful Heaven)

“Like a dog and a cat?”
— album booklet

As I write this, I found out that Releska had already translated this… months ago. Opps, I forgot that this album is a compilation album in my fun. Though, comparing Releska’s and mine together, I interpreted and translated mine a bit differently (mine’s kinda like Beige Prose in some parts, in comparison), so I posted it. Go figure. It’s worth an hour of my life.

In the end, this is kinda a ‘dog and cat-like’ post, isn’t it? Ara, ara…

This probably should have been posted like 6 months ago. I am an incredible person, am I not? I remember I picked this one up on a whim. After forgetting about it for so long, I finished it in less than an hour. Huh? Well, then…

純み切った孤独の在処, by IOSYS | Translation

Title: 純み切った孤独の在処  (A Pure and Serene Isolated Hiding Place)
Circle: IOSYS
Arrange: kanone
Vocal: せんざい
Lyrics: 夕野ヨシミ (IOSYS)
Event: 東方名華祭10 (Meikaisai 10)
Original: Pure Furies ~ Whereabouts of the Heart (ピュアヒューリーズ ~ 心の在処)

Sumikitta Kodoku no Arika. This one’s a little tricky, but fortunately, it’s not the first time I encountered that little switcheroo. On the title, I put it as ‘Pure and Serene’ to reflect the kanji switch, and in the lyrics, I put it as just ‘serene’. Thus, each time you see the word ‘serene’, note that it has the added connotations of ‘being pure’.Read More »
