[Photograph Journey] Ame to Amagaeru

The Rain and a Tree Frog
Lyrics & Composition: alulucan
Vocals: Yukizaki Nagi (CV:Nojima Kenji)

I’m a tree frog
Gazing at the river on a paddy field of grass

Keenly listening, once in a while I try to ribbit
I wonder if you could hear it

I really really want to talk with you, but
This whole time I can’t meet you, so here’s a magic spell:

Waku waku waku I’m a tree frog
Waku waku waku make it rain
It is because I met you on a rainy day

I’m a tree frog
I walk on the leaves as I impatiently wait for the rain
With my suction cup toe pads, I’ll climb as far as the summit

The more I get closer to the skies
Surely, I’m certain that I’ll be able to look into your heart

Waku waku waku whenever I ribbit
Waku waku waku I’m calling out happiness
If it rains, then I’ll be able to meet you

Ah, yes, I know
That you want to see me too

Waku waku waku I’m a tree frog
waku waku waku make it rain
It is because I met you on a rainy day
I’ll keep on believing until my wish comes true

[Hamatora] Sen no Tsubasa (TV size version)

A Thousand Wings
Lyrics/Composition/Arrangement: kz
Vocals: livetune adding Takuro Sugawara (from 9mm Parabellum Bullet)

Don’t just use the ideal words
Truth is, you can’t see it, right?
‘Cause no one sees the world the same

Believing in the story that unfolds before my eyes
It’s only with my own wings that I should be able to fly further away

The moment of realization
They say that this present is everything

God, let this voice flutter through the sky
‘Cause I’ll show a dream to someone who has different wings

You can feel these countless wings, right?
Someday, we can reach our destination that is being shine down by the sun

[Hamatora] INNOCENT WORLD

INNOCENT WORLD
Vocals: Moral (CV: Ono Yūki)
Lyrics: Yoshida Shiori
Composition/Arrangement: Yo Keigo

The swarm of people brimming with chaos
drowning in their ugliness and crookedness
I sink in grief as I witness rebellion
If you are seeking salvation, I shall answer to it

Weaklings are not allowed
Acting strong by yourself too, is not allowed

Pressing the blame, the ones who will be judged
gives rise to the disparity of the world itself

I will grant the wish that was sprouted from pain
The ideal figure you have obtained is so radiant
I will c
And then along with the others,
even the komainu, who have been carrying all the loneliness
from the very beginning, I will comfort them too

There is no sense in being weak
and acting strong by yourself too

The time creeps for those who are desired,
they will be regulated and the world will be just

With your unleashed desires, I wish you all the happiness
I will let you run with your high spirits

Weaklings are not allowed
Acting strong by yourself too, is not allowed

The state that is being spoke of
is the very best of the world, free of bias

[Hamatora] Rakugetsu

The Setting Moon
Vocals: Moral (CV: Ono Yūki)
Lyrics: Yoshida Shiori
Arrangement: Harada Nao

Through the strumming rain
the moon is clouded again
The beginning of retribution and the end of sin,
the closed future and the vanished past

Undoubtedly believing in righteousness
With that lovely, sublime, and sagacious figure
the more you are deeply wounded

The butterfly that carries atonement
Ceases to fly
Dies slowly
You, the pure,
unknowingly
end up killing someone

Through that faint voice
the moon is full again
Floundering retribution, falling sin
Frozen memories melt into riddles

You disclosed the truth to protect people
With that splendid, kind, and earnest figure
the more you are trembling frailly

The butterfly that concealed its aspirations
Returns back into a pupa and then
Confesses its sins
You, the pure,
are constricting the unknown path to salvation with someone

You are seeking light
from the
crumbled moon

The butterfly that carries atonement
Ceases to fly
Dies slowly
You, the pure,
unknowingly
end up killing someone

The Rain and a Tree Frog
Vocals: Yukizaki Nagi (CV:Nojima Kenji)

I am a tree frog, gazing at the river
on a paddy field of grass

Keenly listening, once in a while I try to ribbit
I wonder if you could hear it

I really really want to talk with you, but
This whole time I can’t meet you, here’s a magic spell:

Waku waku waku I am a tree frog
Waku waku waku make it rain
It is because I met you on a rainy day

 

A Song for you

Vocals: Mashiki Kojirou (CV: Hino Satoshi)

The gentle wind that keeps on patting my tanned body, is that you?
Clouds stream far far away, just like eternity

The blue sea and the summer I spent with you
At the beach, your merry smiles comes to mind

You are not here, yet you’re not that far away
My far off feelings will cross space-time

Let the sea breeze waver this song and deliver it to you
The disappearing writings in the sand, but when it does not
My heart, washed by thousands of waves, clearly yearns for you

 

diamond dust
Vocals: Himori Kei (CV:Hatano Wataru)

This year, how many times did the snow piled up on
the couples’ footprints in the morning?

You, who peeked into my heart with your innocent eyes
I thought that I would to protect you
The time period in which we separated and parted ways
if this moment could go in a flash
See, the world is responding!

The present is covered with diamond dust
I want to see you
I have always been under your spell
Injured angels start to spread their wings once again
I won’t part with you, let’s stay under the miracle

 

 

Kagerou (Mayfly)
Vocals: Tatara Ryouhei (CV: Kakihara Tetsuya)

TN: I chose mayfly because it feels like the Ryouhei’s interaction with the Heroine is short-lived and mayflies are known for their ephemerality.

In this town’s whirl of lust, have you lose sight of love?
have you lost your mind?

Within the clouded consciousness, are you over there?
your silhoutte, I can see [it]

I have always been chasing after
your figure that keeps going far away
to my heart’s content

Surely, you will waver when I touch you
I will grasp the sky with these hands and leave nothing behind

Still, I don’t want to lose the you, the one I love, so
[I’ll] run after you

[Hamatora] Tadoritsuku no wa

TN: To be honest, it was hard to choose what kind of expression to use in English. I mainly relied on the contents of the monologue.  However, the title itself – thank goodness it has an equivalent in English!

What I arrived at is….

Speaker: Art (CV: Kamiya Hiroshi)
Music: Sakou Kenichi
Words: Yoshida Shiori
Arrangement: Kuge Maon

Disturbing the order: an interference. Playing with people’s feelings.
“Guiding the people,” that’s just being frivolous.
Your plotted scenario is a nonsense desire.
You have no room for compassion at all.

Bestowing shackled wings
Is immersing yourself in pleasure
Everything shattered: justice and benevolence

Searching for the proof that was completely hidden in the darkness
Yes, I figured it out, it’s me, isn’t?
As if you were intoxicated with being a savior
Yes, I will now show you how I will end it with my own hands
Being pushed by the sound of my trembling pulse
I will go on embracing the pain

[KuroBasu] Do the Best

Vocals: Kuroko Tetsuya (CV: Ono Kensho) & Midorima SHintarou (Cv: Ono Daisuke)
Lyrics: Kodama Saori
Music: Masuda Takeshi
Do the best
We all have our own ways
Let’s Do the best

I can’t tell what you are thinking just by looking at your eyes
He’s unpleasant as ever
To be honest, I don’t get along with him way back then but
I can’t shoot passionately

I’m prepared that Aquarians won’t lose today
But even Oha Asa could be wrong
“That’s impossible”

I say such things like that, you say such things like that
We argue over the differences of our views
Either side have a sound argument, either one is overstretching it too
When we insist on each other’s view, we use all our strength
We’ll continue this on the next game
I won’t lose
We’ll see
Let’s play fair and square
While believing in our own principles

Always Do the best

In the first place, going to that nameless school itself
Is not remarkable at all
Excuse me, but Seirin is not a weakling
Apart from that, I’m looking forward to a good game

Decision-making should be done with all your effort, it’s a given
That is why this team is good
“I am Seirin’s shadow”

As exactly I have said, you are really like that
Not being two-faced, as I have thought
That is your good point, it’s something I don’t detest
You haven’t changed since then
You’re eccentric
You’re stubborn
Always at your own pace
And so forth
Accommodating each other doesn’t work
Let’s face each other fair and square

I say such things like that, you say such things like that
We argue over the differences of our views
Either side have a sound argument, either one is overstretching it too
When we insist on each other’s view, we use all our strength
We’ll continue this on the next game
I won’t lose
We’ll see
Let’s play fair and square
While believing in our own principles
