革命宣戦ファシズム [Revolutionary War Fascism] || イノライ

革命宣戦ファシズム
kakumei sensen fashizumu
Revolutionary War Fascism

original: 恋色マスタースパーク/少女綺想曲 ~ Dream Battle
from: 東方永夜抄 ~ Imperishable Night

arrangement/lyrics: ACTRock
vocals: 謎の人物K (Nazo no Jinbutsu K)
album: 月華蝶/革命宣戦ファシズム (Gekkachou/Kakumei Sensen Fascism)
circle: イノライ (Inorai)


The title translation is the official one!
The most common definition of fascism would be “a political system based on a very powerful leader, state control, and being extremely proud of country and race, and in which political opposition is not allowed”.
Well, if we take into consideration that it’s kind of Reimu’s and Marisa’s job to exterminate youkai and maintain the balance in Gensokyo to remain as it currently is, I guess it kind of fits. Also they both shoot before they talk to the troublemakers, so you can’t really argue with that either lol
There’s no political meaning in the song, so please don’t try to read anything into it. I believe the term doesn’t have that much of a negative connotation in Japan as it does in the west. It’s more valid to criticize a certain song about communism whose PV had to be edited : P
If you still wish to discuss this song or translation, please don’t do it in the comments and don’t do it with me. After studying this stuff for three years I’m not in the mood for political discussions anymore lol

arrangement/lyrics: ACTRock
vocals: cheluce/謎の人物K (Nazo no Jinbutsu K)
album: DESTINE ASH/Love Love Scarlet

This is a song about Keiki’s and Saki’s battle for strength.
I marked the parts where cheluce is singing red and the ones where K is singing blue. Normal color is for both. You can figure out for yourself who plays which character (˘ω˘)

遠いキミの行方 (The Whereabouts of Distant You) || 暁Records

遠いキミの行方

tooi kimi no yukue
«The Whereabouts of Distant You»

original: 向こう側の月/月面ツアーにようこそ
arrangement/lyrics: ACTRock
vocals: 謎の人物K
album: 神様Stories -to the beginning 06-
circle: 暁Records

This is one of my favourite Akatsuki songs because it’s a masterpiece arrangement-, lyrics- and vocal-wise. The story is similair to “Black Mirror on the Wall”, but with less despair and more loneliness.

I cried when listening to this song after translating it. It was my favourite before, but just then I noticed how much pain is in the lyrics and K’s vocals… And then Sagume became my favourite LoLK character :’D

It was a pain in the ass transcribing this song because K is singing very indistinct in here. But after all I managed to do it. One more song to go!
