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. A
fter studying this stuff for three years I’m not in the mood for political discussions anymore lol
