matarah || 舞音KAGURA



original: 秘神マターラ ~ Hidden Star in All Seasons. [Hidden God Matara]
from: 東方天空璋 ~ Hidden Star in Four Seasons

arrangement: けぇぽん (K-Pon)
lyrics/vocals: 小峠 舞 (Mai Kotohge)
album: 花氷 -Hanagoori-
circle: 舞音KAGURA (Muon KAGURA)

This is one of my favorite tracks from Hanagoori. I’d really like to work on the other songs too, but I probably won’t get the lyrics (anytime soon…)

  1. 創世 (sousei) [the creation of the world] is sung as 全て (subete) [everything].

スクリーミング・タイラント [Screaming Tyrant] || 幽閉サテライト

Screaming Tyrant

original: 始原のビート ~ Pristine Beat [Primordial Beat ~ Pristine Beat]
from: 東方輝針城 ~ Double Dealing Character

arrangement: SeiuChi
lyrics: かませ虎 (kamase-tora)
vocals: senya
album: 零れずの願いゴト [Wishes That Won’t Spill Out]
circle: 幽閉サテライト (Yuuhei Satellite)


You can now buy all of Yuuhei’s albums as digital copies on This way, you can support the circle without having to pay expensive fees because of shipping and taxes if you live overseas! You pay the same price as a physical copy would cost. The shop is also available in English. They offer downloads from quite a few circles, so be sure to check it out! You don’t have any excuse to not buy albums anymore now! lol

I’m kinda hyped to work on the other songs of the “Screaming”-series as well, so expect them soon! They don’t follow the same storyline though.

ボクの色になる [Become My Color] || 幽閉サテライト

boku no iro ni naru
Become My Color

music: 神奈森ユウ (Kanamori Yuu)/HiZuMi
lyrics: かませ虎 (kamase-tora)
vocals: 兎明 (Toa)
album: 零れずの願いゴト [Wishes That Won’t Spill Out]
circle: 幽閉サテライト (Yuuhei Satellite)

Sorry for the delay of this translation, but the current week was crazy! There were too many deadlines to hit and too much things to do…
Also, this blog recently had its third birthday! Time sure flies by past, huh? There won’t be anything fancy because of this occasion, but I’ll promise to improve more and more over the years, okay? (haha)

Coming to “boku no iro ni naru”, it’s my favorite track of Yuuhei’s new album and also a Yuuhei-original, although the whole album is great overall. I feel Yuuhei slowly turns back to their roots (I’m referring to スクリーミング・タイラント (Screaming Tyrant) which follows the same concept as スクリーミング・テンペスト (Screaming Tempest) and スクリーミング・インフェルノ (Screaming Inferno) as well as Iceon’s comeback) although there are so many new members now. I’m glad they finally found some great people now though, since they once said they’d be searching for them!
Toa is a really great vocalist and I adore her strong, deep voice. I’m glad she coveres so many old Yuuhei songs as well as delivering several splendid new ones!

鶲、眩う。 (A Flycatcher Feels Dizzy.) || 森羅万象

hitaki, mau.
A Flycatcher Feels Dizzy.

original: 色無き風は妖怪の山に [The Colorless Wind on Youkai Mountain]
from: 東方天空璋 ~ Hidden Star in Four Seasons

arrangement: kaztora/ACTRock
lyrics: ticat
vocals: cheluce
album: Season 4 you
circle: 森羅万象 (Shinra-Bansho)

I don’t think I ever translated a Shinra-Bansho song, although I enjoy most of them. What led me to try my luck on this one? It’s cheluce! I was surprised at how different (in a positive way) she sounds from her appearances in Akatsuki’s albums. This song is very calm and melancholic, which I like a lot. I hope you can enjoy it as well!

天色の四季 (Sky-Colored Four Seasons) || 暁Records

ama-iro no shiki
Sky-Colored Four Seasons

original: 魔法の笠地蔵/一対の神獣/秘匿されたフォーシーズンズ [The Magic Straw-Hat Jizo/A Pair of Divine Beasts/The Concealed Four Seasons]
from: 東方天空璋 ~ Hidden Star in Four Seasons

arrangement: ねこ☆まんじゅう
lyrics/vocals: Stack
album: Metamorphosis
circle: 暁Records

Somehow I’d say the song plays at the end of summer, although there’s no specific season connected with it. Thinking about it, it suits all seasons some way or another. There always comes a warm feeling with it though.

album: コマノエール -全力貢献中!!
circle: 暁Records

My favorite track on “Komano Eeru” (despite the Engrish)! I’m not sure what else to translate from this album (maybe DARK NEXT?), but I’ll make a poll on my Twitter!

ノクチルカの夜 (Night of the Noctiluca) || majiko

bass: 久保寺豊 (Kubodera Yutaka)
piano: 吉野慶太郎 (Yoshino Keitaro)
drums: 中畑大樹 (Nakahata Daiki)
album: CLOUD 7
artist: majiko

Somehow depressed people have their own sense of humour.
I use to listen to this song when walking home in the evening (the lyrics might be pretty dark, but it suits the atmosphere well.)

A noctiluca, as given in the oxford dictionaries, is defined as: “A roughly spherical marine dinoflagellate which is strongly phosphorescent, especially when disturbed.” [source]
