Connected Moments

original: 風神少女 [Wind God Girl]
from: 東方風神録 ~ Mountain of Faith

arrangement/lyrics: ACTRock
vocals: cheluce
album: ツナガルセツナ (Tsunagaru Setsuna)
circle: イノライ (Inorai)


I’ve known this circle would come to life since the C94 catalogue was going around and had the hunch it might be a team of ACTRock and cheluce (I was right lol). But I didn’t really know what else to expect! I’ve thought that cheluce’s voice would suit powerful rock-songs well, and my assumption seems to be right ❤
I hope you all enjoy Inorai as much as I do !


A song about Aya-chan carrying people’s memories on to the next generation with her camera.

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!

A Flycatcher Feels Dizzy.

original: 色無き風は妖怪の山に [The Colorless Wind on Youkai Mountain]
from: 東方天空璋 ~ Hidden Star in Four Seasons

arrangement: kaztora/ACTRock
lyrics: ticat
vocals: cheluce
album: Season 4 you
circle: 森羅万象 (Shinra-Bansho)


I don’t think I ever translated a Shinra-Bansho song, although I enjoy most of them. What led me to try my luck on this one? It’s cheluce! I was surprised at how different (in a positive way) she sounds from her appearances in Akatsuki’s albums. This song is very calm and melancholic, which I like a lot. I hope you can enjoy it as well!
