THE FIRST GALE OF SPRING || 暁Records

THE FIRST GALE OF SPRING

original: ラストリモート [Last Remote]
from: 東方地霊殿 ~ Subterranean Animism

arrangement: Stack Bros.
lyrics/vocals: Stack
album: Money Money
circle: 暁Records


“I’ll go on living even if nobody acknowledges it.
Even if I decided to discard this world… It doesn’t matter.

I ride on the first strong waves of the east wind.”

-Stack


“Gale” is another word for “strong wind”. As you may have noticed, this song is about Sanae and not Koishi. I don’t really know why people got that idea anyways.
Oh and by the way: hyururu is a Japanese onomatopoeia for “woosh”. Fitting for wind, isn’t it?

original: おてんば恋娘 [Beloved Tomboyish Girl]

arrangement: Stack Bros.

Please note that the booklet had only the recipes written in it and not the actual lyrics!

Thanks a lot to the person/people responsible for the Touhou-Kashi wiki for this transcription of the actual lyrics! (I corrected a few parts though)
東方同人CDの歌詞@wikiのやつらへありがとうございます!あの音訳は絶好です!


  1. 9★ restaurant is a reference to usual restaurant stars indicating how good they are rated. (The more stars, the better the kitchen.)
  2. 十八番 (juu-hachi-ban) literally translates to 18th, but it also means “speciality”. Thus the pun:
    juu-kyuu… ja nakute, juu-hachi-ban” (“My 19th… no, my 18th (speciality)”)
  3. The “magic box” is a microwave.
  4. Marisa is a drug dealer.
  5. In the last recipe, it says “happa”. This means leaves but also explosives. Another pun.

N.Y.U.D.O. || 暁Records

N.Y.U.D.O.

original: 時代親父とハイカラ少女 [The Traditional Old man and the Stylish Girl]
from: 東方星蓮船 ~ Undefined Fantastic Object

arrangement: Stack Bros.
lyrics/vocals: Stack
album: MONEY MONEY
circle: 暁Records


Lyrics written like this were not given in the booklet.

1) “N.Y.U.D.O” is a play of words. It’s short for “Nyorai, Yourself, Universe, Dharma, Om” as seen in the first stanza of the song but it also refers to a person completely devoted to Buddha’s path.
2) “Nyorai” is the Japanese term for Buddha.
3) “Dharmah” is the eternal law of the cosmos.
4) “Mihotoke” is another term for Buddha (Amida Buddha to be specific).
5) “Namusan” is short for namusanbou which can be translated to “Hail to the three treasures of Buddhism” (Buddha, Dharmah and Sangha).

I’ve been hyped for this song since the C93 announcement, so I’m glad to finally present a translation to you!
Never forget that when you sin hard enough and get sent to hell, O-Rin will eat you ❤


You might notice I’ve written some words in a weird way (like “alnyaight”) because Stack has used the Japanese cat sound “nya” at these parts and I wanted to kind of include them.

Hello?

original: 明日ハレの日,ケの昨日 [Today Will Be Sunny, Yesterday Was Not]
from: 東方風神録 ~ Mountain of Faith

arrangement: Stack Bros.
lyrics/vocals: Stack
album: 例大祭15おまけCD
circle: 暁Records


This song is very soothing and easy to listen to. I really like these kind of calm songs that have a country-vibe to them. They always make me think about summer.

Funnily enough, the song for the new Crest album I’ve written called “Morgen geht die Sonne auf” [Sun will rise again] is a German saying with the same message as the song wants to convey.

I didn’t really build up a connection to Joon or Shion so far, but I kind of relate to both. (If it weren’t for my girlfriend I probably wouldn’t have any money saved up, ahaha) I really enjoy Joon’s carefree attitude though and her kind of frantic desire to cover up the hole in her heart with money and goods is #relatable.

Also I’d like to quote Violet here: “MONEY MONEY IS THE BEST TROLL EVER AND I LOVE IT.”
