No Way -Gravity-

original: 神さびた古戦場 ~ Suwa Foughten Field
arrangement/lyrics: ACTRock
vocals: Stack
album: No Way -Gravity-
circle: 暁Records


UPDATED June 16th 2017

I was disappointed by the single at first, but I started liking it after all o^^o

On another note, as concluded from Stack’s Twitter spoilers, their C91 album will include an arrangement by Stack! She described it to have a jazzy touch to it and resemble the film music of a certain British Spy’s films…

I’ve always loved this song, but never thought about translating it lol I’ll probably focus on the older Akatsuki songs for some time, because they still have a special place in my heart.

イーハトーヴのまぼろし (Illusion of Ihatov) || 暁Records

イーハトーヴのまぼろし
ihatov no maboroshi
Illusion of Ihatov

original: 遠野幻想物語
arrangement: Stack Bros.
lyrics/vocals: Stack
album: C90会場限定おまけCD
circle: 暁Records

Requested by Tekashi

1) Ihatov is a fictive place where Miyazawa Kenji’s (a Japanese author) stories and poems are set. It’s a very mysterious one. If you want to read up more info about it, take a look at this article!
2) The “untranslated” parts are written in the language of youkai, thus “we humans cannot understand it” (comment by Stack).
3) Mayohiga is a place full of cats. Its name would translate to “Stray House”. As I commented on “Destiny ~ Spring has come at last”: Blame Chen!

CAT HAND || 暁Records

original: 遠野幻想物語
arrangement/lyrics: ACTRock
vocals: Stack
album: 少女救世論
circle: 暁Records


Pop~! Punk! Meow~!! When you want to go all limp when feeling good… or when you feel heavy… I’ll lend you my cat hand so you can go on another journey! (Again… journey… Wandering life of a gambler… *Chew, chew*…)
-Stack


1) About the quote: Mata means “again” and tabi means “journey”, but matatabi means “Wandering life of a gambler”.
2) Watashi ga ne kou might be a pun, since it also sounds like watashi ga neko which means “I’m a cat”.

トレジャーチルノ (Treasure Cirno) || 暁Records

Treasure Cirno

original: おてんば恋娘
arrangement/lyrics: ACTRock
vocals: Stack
album: 少女救世論
circle: 暁Records


Recently, it was confirmed that Cirno won’t melt, and she won’t melt either in our arrangement. She just pretends to do. (Although her brain melts) That is how Cirno is!!! A treasure hunt!?! She’ll do it!?!?
-Stack


1) The spoken parts weren’t given in the booklet, so I transcribed them by ear. They might contain some errors due to that, but I’m almost sure I understood it right.
2) Chiru Chiruno is a pun that can’t be translated into English without loosing its meaning: Chiru means “to fall”, and Cirno is, well, Cirno. “Falling Cirno”. It can also be read as “Chiru chiru no” though, which just means “I’m falling?”.

Destiny ~Spring has come at last

original: 妖々跋扈/少女幻葬 ~ Necro-Fantasy
arrangement: Stack Bros.
lyrics/vocals: Stack
album: 少女救世論
circle: 暁Records


A tale about the time when the cherry blossoms bloom and various things wake up. Destiny. Connections. The melody changes frequently and is completed with “Better than fried tofu!” at the end.

1) “Mayoiga” is a place full of cats. (Blame Chen)
