カゲロウ (Heat Haze) || 暁Records

カゲロウ

Heat Haze

original: 童祭 ~ Innocent Treasures [Kid’s Festival ~ Innocent Treasures]
from: 夢違科学世紀 ~ Changeability of Strange Dream

arrangement: ねこ☆まんじゅう (Neko☆Manjuu)
lyrics: ACTRock
vocals: Stack
album: NO SIGNAL
circle: 暁Records


The lyrics of this song are rather cryptic when it comes to clarify the famous w-questions due to the almost complete lack of “watashi/boku” [I/me] and “anata/kimi” [You]. The lyrics work by only using “kore” (this) and “sore” (that), “koko” [here] and “soko” [there] and finally “kono” (this/my) and “sono” (that/your).
Yet, there are nothing but hints about what places or situations the speaker talks about – At least for these uninvolved. The only possibilities given in the lyrics are “memories” or “heart”, but that would make most of the lyrics metaphorical. It could also refer to actual places though, if the speaker moved away or something.
I refrained from adding any kind of interpretation in the translation, so you can make up your own!

葬~Dear knows~ [Burial ~Dear knows~] || C-CLAYS

«I want to convey the delight of having met you again by playing these tunes alongside my comrades……»

葬~Dear knows~
sou
Burial ~Dear knows~

original: ピュアヒューリーズ~心の在処 [Pure Furies ~ Whereabouts of the Heart]
from: 東方紺珠伝 ~ Legacy of Lunatic Kingdom

arrangement: K2
lyrics: 天音未優 (Amane Myu)
vocals: Luna/Rumico
album: 伝奏 -デンソウ-
circle: C-CLAYS/K2 SOUND


Comment from Amane Myu:
For C-CLAYS to be able to keep its activities for over ten years now is all thanks to everyone. “Densou” was created with the feelings of wanting to go through the past ten years of activity and having new encounters together with everyone.

Furthermore, she recommends listeners to not listen to “densou” and “shinai” seperately, but to listen to them together on shuffle, since she was unable to express everything with just one album!


This is not the typical Junko song, because her anger is not a topic at all. This song is about her successful recovery from the events that led to her going insane.

  1. 兎角 (tokaku) [Rabbit Horns] is a metaphora for something that is actually impossible – like a rabbit having horns.
  2. The Lunarians and also Junko have a strong connection to kegare (impurity) and kegarenaki or junsui (not impure/purity). As ZUN stated in her official profile: “She herself is a being purified by her resentment.”
