コンニチハ?

Hello?

original: 明日ハレの日,ケの昨日 [Today Will Be Sunny, Yesterday Was Not]

This song is very soothing and easy to listen to. I really like these kind of calm songs that have a country-vibe to them. They always make me think about summer.

Funnily enough, the song for the new Crest album I’ve written called “Morgen geht die Sonne auf” [Sun will rise again] is a German saying with the same message as the song wants to convey.

I didn’t really build up a connection to Joon or Shion so far, but I kind of relate to both. (If it weren’t for my girlfriend I probably wouldn’t have any money saved up, ahaha) I really enjoy Joon’s carefree attitude though and her kind of frantic desire to cover up the hole in her heart with money and goods is #relatable.

Also I’d like to quote Violet here: “MONEY MONEY IS THE BEST TROLL EVER AND I LOVE IT.”

Little Clown, you dance.
Little Clown, you laugh.
The swaying flames flicker.
Although there’s no one else here:

,Hey Tagger, I’m here!
Let’s play together, until you break…’
-Stack


Please note that there might be errors in the romaji due to me currently being unable to listen to the full song.

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!

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.

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!

Aaand another ship emerged!
As you might know, Marisa put a straw hat on a random Jizo statue in Imperishable Night. (Marisa claims it was Alice’s doing, but let’s be serious here.) As far as I know, it wasn’t officially stated Narumi is the Jizo statue from back then, only that Marisa and her know each other. (Most likely because they both live in the Forest of Magic.) It’s a nice headcanon though!
