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. A
fter studying this stuff for three years I’m not in the mood for political discussions anymore lol
限界突破EGOIST genkai toppa Limit-Breaking EGOIST original: 偶像に世界を委ねて ～ Idoratrize World/聖徳太子のペガサス ～ Dark Pegasus from: 東方鬼形獣 ～ Wily Beast and Weakest Creature arrangement/lyrics: ACTRock vocals: cheluce/謎の人物K (Nazo no Jinbutsu K) album: DESTINE ASH/Love Love Scarlet circle: イノライ (Inorai)
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˘)

«The Whereabouts of Distant You»
album: 神様Stories -to the beginning 06-
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!
This one was quite tricky.
