Sorry, I was too busy playing Touhou CB :upside_down:
Anyways, I noticed that this album is far more polarized than most other recent Buta albums – the tracks are either extremely positive or extremely negative. I don’t know if this is intentional or not, but I found it interesting at least! I feel like this song would be perfect to listen to after Odabutsu, because it seems to try to get across the message “We all make mistakes that bring us grief! It doesn’t make you a bad person forever though!” But then again, looking at the songs like that would weaken the impact of Odabutsu’s message.
I’m curious to hear what kind of interpretations you have about the lyrics and the album in general so far!

This song was quite challenging, because I don’t know much about Tewi and I felt there are many references to her and her backstory in here. So to understand this song correctly, I read up lots about Tewi and “The White Hare of Inaba” and found some similarities. I can’t say I’m 100% positive about all the interpretations of “me” and “you” in the translation. :shrug:

circle: 豚乙女 (Butaotome)

Ranko plays with some imagery that has to do with Eiki, but the song isn’t really about her.
There seems to be so much anger and hatred in this song. But it’s not a song blaming people in general, it’s also including oneself in the judgment. So in short: We’re all horrible people 🙂

I thought it was fitting to translate Yoakegoe right after Muryoku na Uta, since the long and hopeless night ends in this song here. I hope Buta will play it live one day!
When I first listened to it, I immediately felt this resembles an anime ending song or something (lol) And I can’t help but imagine Kutaka sitting on a fence and literally scream at the sky once the sun goes up in the refrain. You’re welcome 😉
