“Our answer traces our fates and links them. A steady rythm links red threads; it’s sentimental rock!

We hear Renko and Merry again in this song, although most of the lyrics are from Renko’s point of view.
Only two songs from the album left now! Track 6 causes me some problems because I’m unable to understand the intro completely. It might not be included in the translation.

C-CLAYS has always been one of my favorite circles and even though Mai Kotoge now has her own circle, I feel kind of happy about it (because that means a full Mai album plus a C-CLAYS album with other vocalists equals double exitement). I don’t know if Luna and Rumico will be the lead singers of C-CLAYS now or if the next album will bring other vocalists, but these two did an awesome job this event! I feel as if I’d like to translate everything.

I’d like to add to some discourse as well (wether or not to upload songs of certain circles to YouTube etc.) and 舞音KAGURA stated on their website in their FAQ that they are okay with uploads if asked for permission beforehand. I know most uploaders don’t care about what circles thing about this topic (although they really should), but please stop thinking that only because circles don’t block and report uploads they are fine with their music being accesible like this. It’s kind of ridiculous that uploaders get mad at circles for doing so. If you want to share something with other people, make sure it is okay to do so. Their music does not belong to you. And you cannot justify it by saying “it gives them exposure” – a no is a no.

Croak… croak, croak-croak! (Loss of human language) This is Suwakoooooo! There are things like a super long shout in the outro (After the image of a frog’s tongue). After that is croak!
-Stack


Suwako wants to be taking serious, but well… she is still a frog. (Try writing “croak” that often without mistyping. I wrote “corak” at least ten times lol)
The long shout at the end really is impressing.
