Last Destiny was the first Akatsuki song I listened to and it still gives me the chills. Listening to it now, I can’t believe how far I’ve come. Also listening to Supernatural Border, I can’t believe how far Stack has come! I’ve always thought she is an amazing singer, but her voice has become far more stronger and powerful over the years.


“Negawaku wa hana no shita nite haru shinamu/sono kisaragi no mochizuki no koro” is a poem by Saigyou Hoshi. Thus, “If I’m granted one wish: ‘To die under the flowers in spring.'” is a reference to that.
Several possible translations for the poem can be found online, but to add mine to the party:

I pray I may die under the flowers in spring
During the full moon of February.


Someone is crying.
The memories resting upon a carpet of blood-stained cherry blossoms are as peaceful, and yet sorrowful, as a pair of lovers that ended their lives together.
‘I hope to die under the flowers in spring.’
──Who is the one ending it with this noble song?

-Stack
