Kousuke Atari – Natsu Yuuzora

Posted by Saki on January 25, 2009

Title: Natsu Yuuzora / 夏夕空
Artist: Kousuke Atari / 中孝介

Natsume Yuujinchou / 夏目友人帳 Ending Theme

I love this song, the words are really beautiful. It goes so well with Natsume Yuujinchou too~

irozuku nishizora ni
sashikomu hitosuji no hi
yuudachi no ame agari ni
kizuku natsu no nioi

The western sky, changing in colour
A single beam of sunlight shines in
After the evening rain
I recognise the fragrance of summer

hishimeku hikari ga terasu
omoi ni mimi wo sumaseba
kikoeshi tomo no omokage

The colliding beams of light shine
If I listen carefully to my thoughts,
I can hear the traces of my friend

natsu yuuzora kaori datsu
azayaka na sugisarishi hibi
kokoro no mama warai atta
ano natsu no omoide yo

The summer evening sun gives off a fragrant scent
The vivid days that have gone by
Guided by our hearts, we laughed together
The memories of that summer

irozuku hoozuki ni
nigiwaishi natsu matsuri
nari hibiku suzu no ne ni
mune no oku ga yureru

The winter cherry, changing in colour
A crowded summer festival
At the sound of the echoing wind chimes,
my heart sways

sazameku higurashi ga naku
kodachi wo hitori arukeba
yomigaeshi hi no omokage

The noisy cicadas cry
When I walk through the trees alone,
I can recall the traces of those days

sotto boku no
mimi moto de sasayaita
natsukashii hibi
ano no koro mama kawarazu
ima mo kokoro no naka de

They whispered softly
close to my ears
Those nostalgic days
Unchanging from that time,
even now, within my heart

hito toshite mamoru mono
hito toshite manabu koto
naki sofu ga tsumugu
taisetsu na kotoba wa kono mune ni

Something I protect as a person
Something I learn as a person
My late grandfather imprinted
these important words in my heart

natsu yuuzora kaori datsu
azayaka na sugisarishi hibi
ano koro no mama kawaranu
shimi wataru nukumori yo

The summer evening sun gives off a fragrant scent
The vivid days that have gone by
Unchanged from that time
The spreading warmth

ano natsu no omoide yo

The memories of that summer

stella quintet – Crescendo

Posted by Saki on January 20, 2009

Title: Crescendo
Artist: stella quintet (Kishou Taniyama, Kentarou Itou, Jun Fukuyama, Masakazu Morita, Daisuke Kishio)

La Corda d’Oro~primo passo~ Ending Theme

ichi byou goto ni kimi ga itoshii
zutto mune no kodou ga hibiiteiru

You’re dear to me every second
My heartbeat is continually resounding

futari de aruku kaerimichi futo damarikomu
bukiyou de tsutaerarenai omoi

On the way home together, I suddenly fell silent
Clumsy and unable to express my feelings

ashibaya ni yuku shiki no naka
donna shiin demo sugu soba de kimi wo miteitanda

In the quickly passing seasons,
whatever the scene, I watched you by my side

futo kuchizusamu suki na furezu
moshimo kimi nara donna neiro wo kanaderu darou

I suddenly started to sing my favourite phrase
If it’s you, then you can play any tone

ichi byou goto ni yakitsuketai kimi wo
suneta shigusa mo warai gao mo
kimi wo irodoru subete ga ima, kaze ni mai nagara
yasashiku tsutsumu

Every second, I want to burn you onto my memory
Your sulky gesture, and your smiling face too
Everything that colours you, now flutters in the wind,
gently enveloping me

kimi ga hitomi wo kagayakase hanashite kureta
hateshinai yume egaku sutori

You spoke to me, your eyes lit up
A never ending story which depicts a dream

ano toki kimi wa mayotteta boku no senaka wo
sarigenaku oshiteitanda ne

That time, you casually supported me
when I was lost

hyaku paasento ima wo ikiteru
kimi wa dare yori kirameteiru taiyou no you ni

I’m living 100% for now
You’re brighter than anyone else, like the sun

tatta hitori ni deaeta kiseki fukaku
kimi wo shiritai kizutsuite demo

The only miracle that I’ve encountered
I want to know you better, even if I get hurt

ichi byou goto ni kimi ga itoshii
zutto mune no kodou ga hibiiteiru
itsuka wa kitto tsuyosa to iu tsubasa wo hirogete
mamori tsuzukeru dare yori kimi wo

You’re dear to me every second
My heartbeat is continually resounding
Someday surely, I’ll spread the wings called strength
and protect you more than anyone else

Dragonaut – The Resonance / ドラゴノーツ -ザ・レゾナンス Jin Kamishina Character Song

Venus! ano hi koi ni ochite
Venus! sekai juu ga mawari dashita
dakedo sore wa onaji darou?
futari koi ni ochite

Venus! I fell in love that day
Venus! The world began to turn
But those two things are the same, right?
The two of us fell in love

amaku tokimeku nanika ga karada no naka wo kake nuketa

Something gently beating runs through my body

sou sa ore no koi wa kimi dake ni
dakedo sore ga shiawase sa
horeta onna hitori dake ireba ikite yukeru

That’s right, my love is only for you,
but I’m happy with that
I can live with just having one girl that I love

futari hajimete deatta ano hi nanika hajimatta

The day we first met, something began

mou kono yo ni wa ai wa nai
kore ijou no ai wa nai
zenbu towa ni ubawarete nani mo nai kimi wo
mou hanasanai oikakete
nozomu dake ja tsukamenai
zenbu towa ni ubawareta
Happiness? It’s you! You’re my Venus!

There’s no love in this world anymore
There’s no love greater than this
Everything has been taken away by eternity, there’s nothing
I won’t let go of you again, I’ll chase you
The only thing I can’t get, is what I want
Everything has been taken away by eternity
Happiness? It’s you! you’re my Venus!

It’s you! ore no ikiru imi
It’s you! ore no sagasu mono
It’s you! ore wo motomeru no
It’s you! futari dake no sekai

It’s you! My reason for living
It’s you! What I’m looking for
It’s you! The one who wants me
It’s you! A world just for us

tatta ichido no jinsei kono koi dake ni kakete yaru

In this lifetime, the only thing I’m sure of is this love

konna ore wa sukoshi chippoke de
sukoshi yowai toko mo aru
dakedo fuan nante nai
ore wa tsuyoku nareru

I’m insignificant,
and I have my weak points,
but I’m not afraid
I can become strong

ai ni iki nuku tame nara otoko wa minna tsuyoku nareru

If it’s to survive love, then all men will become strong

mou hitori de wa ikirarenai
romansu shika hoshikunai
towa no natsu wo oikakete nanimo nai kimi wo
dakishimetai yume wo mite
nemuru dake ja mitasenai
aishiteru to tsutaetai
Happiness? It’s you! You’re my Venus!

I can’t live alone anymore
All I want is romance
I chase the eternal summer, there’s nothing
I want to hold you close
I dream, but I’m not satisfied by just sleeping
I want to tell you “I love you”
Happiness? It’s you! You’re my Venus!

futari hajimete deatta ano hi nanika ga hajimatta

The day we first met, something began

mou kono yo ni wa ai wa nai
kore ijou no ai wa nai
zenbu towa ni ubawarete nani mo nai kimi wo
mou hanasanai oikakete
nozomu dake ja tsukamenai
zenbu towa ni ubawareta
Happiness? It’s you! You’re my Venus!

There’s no love in this world anymore
There’s no love greater than this
Everything has been taken away by eternity, there’s nothing
I won’t let go of you again, I’ll chase you
The only thing I can’t get, is what I want
Everything has been taken away by eternity
Happiness? It’s you! you’re my Venus!

Shuuhei Kita – Issei no Sei

Posted by Saki on January 16, 2009

Title: Issei no Sei / 一斉の声
Artist: Kita Shuuhei / 喜多修平

Natsume Yuujinchou / 夏目友人帳 Opening Theme

mata sonna kao shite kuchibiru kami shimete yowasa wo kakushiteru kedo
sono hitomi no oku uzukumaru kimi ga hontou no kokoro nara

You’re making that face again, you bite your lip, hiding your weakness but
if the you that cowers within these eyes is your real heart, then…

omotte naite hitori de fuan de nande itai no mottenda
boku ni sotto azukete yo

Thinking, crying, alone, worried, why are you carrying this pain?
Give some of it to me in secret

sugu ja muri to omou no naraba sukoshi zutsu de ii
tsubasa no nai bokura kitto tobenai to kime tsuketeru dake
koe no kagiri kimi wo yobu yo mayowanai you ni
fuwari kokoro mai agare ano kaze ni nosete issei no se

If you think doing something right away is impossible, then little by little is okay
The reason we don’t have wings is only because we’ve decided we can’t fly
I’ll call you as loud as as I can, so that you don’t lose your way
Your heart gently soars, ride on that wind, simultaneous voice

todokanai nante kime tsukeru koto de kizutsuku koto kara nigetemo
sono nigiri shimeta te no hira no naka de yuragu omoi kakusenai

Deciding that you can’t reach, even if you run from what hurts you,
you can’t hide those swaying feelings in your clenched fist

nagetenai de hitori de inai de sonde itai no tonde ike
ima yori chotto asu he ikou yo

Don’t lament, you’re not alone, that pain will disappear
Let’s get closer to tomorrow than we are now

hitori ja muri na koto mo tabun sa kaerareru ka na
tsubasa no nai kawari ni bokura doko mademo omoi tobaseru yo
koe no kagiri kimi ni utau yo wasurenai you ni
tatoe tooku hanaretemo ano sora ni mukete issei no se

There are probably things that are impossible alone, can this change?
Although we have no wings, we can reach anywhere just by thinking
I sing to you as loud as I can, so you won’t forget
Even if we’re far apart, there’s a simultaneous voice aimed towards the sky

mayotte eranda no michi no saki de mata mayou no nara
mi agereba mabushii sora ni ikusen no koe ga hibiteru yo

If, at the end of the path you chose when you were lost, you become lost again,
look up at the dazzling sky and thousands of voices will resound

sugu ja muri to omou no naraba sukoshi zutsu de ii
tsubasa no nai bokura wa kitto tobenai to kime tsuketeru dake
koe no kagiri kimi wo yobu yo mayowanai you ni
fuwari kokoro mai agare ano kaze ni nosete issei no se

If you think doing something right away is impossible, then little by little is okay
The reason we don’t have wings is only because we’ve decided we can’t fly
I’ll call you as loud as as I can, so that you don’t lose your way
Your heart gently soars, ride on that wind, simultaneous voice

Title: Shissou / 疾走 /Dash
Artist: Last Alliance

Ouran High School Host Club / 桜蘭高校ホスト部 Ending Theme

go sen mairu hashitte iki wo kirashite
adorenarin hyaku ritoru go tai subete furu kadou

Running 5000 miles, I’m out of breath
100 litres of adrenalin, the power of 5 people, full operation

koko made kureba ii darou? doko made ga OK?
machi wo irodoru kigi wa moyougae kurikaeshiteru

It’s alright if I’ve come this far, isn’t it? How far is okay?
The pattern of the trees colouring the city is repeatedly changing

kawari hateta shirosa kawaranai yowasa
ima koko ni iru jibun wo shinjitai

The white has completely changed, the unchanging weakness
I want to believe in the me that’s here now

migite hidarite furi kazashite yami wo kirisaite GO!
itsuwari wa naize kakugo kimeteruze
sutaato kitta sono shunkan kara sekai wa hirogaru sa

I raise both my hands and cut through the darkness, GO!
There are no lies, I’ve decided my resolve
From the instant that the start begins, the world will expand

mabataki wo kurikaesu furuku iroaseta gaitou ni michibikare
itsumo no kaerimichi wo yuku

Guided by the old, faded street lamp which twinkles repeatedly,
I walk my usual route home

sabireta machi ni natsukashii kaze ga fuki
oikaze ni natte senaka osunda

A nostalgic wind blows over the rusty town
It becomes a tailwind, pushing me from behind

namida kareru made sono akirame mune ni shimatte STOP!
gooru wa naize orikaeshi mo naize
kaze wo kitte kaki nukeru kagirinai shissou

Until my tears dry up, I’ll put away that resignation in my heart, STOP!
There’s no goal, there’s no repetition either
A never ending dash runs past, cutting through the wind

Let’s return those bitter days akete minai ka?
yume toji kometa pandora no hako wo

Let’s return those bitter days, will you try to open it?
The Pandora’s box which has trapped our dreams

sente gote dochira tote koma susumerya banji OK!
yasunde mo iize ore wa shitteruze
koko made no purosesu sore wa kimi no akashi sa

Black or white, which is the pawn? If you advance, everything will be OK!
It’s okay to relax, I know that the process up until now is proof of you

migite hidarite furikazashite yami wo kirisaite GO!

I raise both my hands and cut through the darkness, GO!

Ah, I can become strong just by
you being near
Even if the storm tests me
I’ll overcome it for you

gently touched
The miracle that I found
in these hands

A warmth that can’t be
expressed in words
I thought that I’d say
I’m not alone anymore

yuuki ni naru ne for you

You’re smiling beside me
I want to protect that smile
The feeling of wanting to protect someone
gives me courage for you

When I saw you
I felt as if a rainbow had been born
in the depths of my heart

I journeyed in the rain,
the light that I finally found now
I want to stay just like this

kono te no hira de for you

Hey, what can I do?
There’s not much I can do, right?
Even so, I’ll wipe away your tears
with my hands for you

Ah, I can become strong just by
you being near
Even if the storm tests me

Veltpunch – Banana to Butterfly

Posted by Saki on January 12, 2009

Artist: Veltpunch
Title: Banana to Butterfly / Banana and Butterfly

Tell me why you leave
toki wa sugite shinjitsu wa naze yami ni somaru
sakenda!
I do want to be with you
kanchigai to kuukyo ni yureru

Tell me why you leave
Time has passed by, why is the truth dyed by darkness?
I shouted!
I do want to be with you
Shaken by misunderstandings and emptiness

itsuka kimi no machi no hazure de kizuita
kureru sora no iro wa chi no you da
I do want to be with you
hajimete nara

One day, on the outskirts of your city
I noticed the colour of the darkening sky was like blood
I do want to be with you
If it’s the beginning…

Standing just alone kusunda mirai ni nageku
Crying by myself nijinda na mo naki iro
I do want to be with you
mimi ni yomigaeru “tonight tonight”

Standing just alone, I lament the darkened future
Crying by myself, the blurred colour without a name
I do want to be with you
“tonight tonight” resounds in my ears

Tell me why you leave
netsu wa samete shuu ni ichido yoku wo mitasu…kurutta!
I want the bullets “the blue sky”
koukishin de chouchou mo nureru

Tell me why you leave
My fever cools, once a week I satisfy my desires…I’ve gone crazy!
I want the bullets “the blue sky”
Out of curiosity, the butterfly gets wet

zutto yuka ni koboreta mama de
kurozunda banana no kawa wo muite
dousun no?
I want the bullets “the blue sky”
kotoba mo naku

Continuously falling onto the ground,
the blackened banana’s skin is peeled away
What will you do?
I want the bullets “the blue sky”
I don’t have any words…

Standing just alone kusunda mirai ni nageku
Crying by myself nijinda na mo naki iro
I do want to be with you
mimi ni yomigaeru “tonight tonight”
tonight

Standing just alone, I lament the darkened future
Crying by myself, the blurred colour without a name
I do want to be with you
“tonight tonight” resounds in my ears
tonight…

Days or nights?
Tell me why you leave
toki wa sugite itsuka banana mo kuchite shimau
tonight…

Days or nights?
Tell me why you leave
Time passes by, someday the banana will rot too

sakenda!
I do want to be with you…

I shouted out!
I do want to be with you…

Kita Shuuhei – Rain of Mind

Posted by Saki on January 11, 2009

Artist: Kita Shuuhei / 喜多修平

Title: Rain of Mind

dore dake tsuyoku dakishimetara
bokura no ima ga kawaru no
sashi nobeta kie iru you na omoi
kizukenai mama de

How closely will we have to embrace each together
before the present changes?
Unaware of the disappearing feelings
that we held out

ima mo mado wo tataku oto wa yami sou ni nai kedo
kodoku na yoru magireru no nara ii
noizu majiri no ai sonna yogoreta kanjou ni
nomi komarete shimai sou da yo
tada itsumademo soba ni itte sou negatta hazu na no ni
doushite kimi wa koko ni inai

Now, it doesn’t seem like the knocking sound at the window is going to stop, but
if it diverts the lonely night, then that’s okay
The noise mixed in with love is about to be swallowed
by those stained emotions

dore dake namida wo nagashitara nara
bokura no itami kieru no
iikaketa ano hi no kotoba ima
kikasete hoshii yo

How many tears do we have to cry
before our pain disappears?
I want to hear those words that you
tried to say that day now

hohaba wo awasete aruku futari kasha na te ga sukoshi fure
sono tabi ni egao wo miseta kimi ga chisaku natte yuku

The couple walking at the same pace, their delicate hands touch slightly
The you that showed me a smile that time fades away

nioi mo nukumori mo naze ni konna ni yakitsuite
ima sara mata kaki mushiru you ni
tada kimi dake wo motometeta modorenai toki no naka de
doushite boku wa koko ni iru

Your fragrance and your warmth, why do they burn so much?
Now, as if they are tearing at me
All I wanted was you
Why am I here in the midst of time which cannot be turned back?

dore dake tsuyoku dakishimetara
bokura no ima ga kawaru no
sashi nobeta kie iru you na omoi
kizukenai mama de

How closely will we have to embrace each together
before the present changes?
Unaware of the disappearing feelings
that we held out

ame ga kono netsu wo ibai satte kureru nara sore mo ii
kodou kizamu hodo kurushiku naru kimi ni ima aitai

If the rain could cool this fever, then that’d be okay
I want to be with you so much that
my heart beats painfully

dore dake namida wo nagashitara nara
bokura no itami kieru no
iikaketa ano hi no kotoba ima
kikasete hoshii yo

How many tears do we have to cry
before our pain disappears?
I want to hear those words that you
tried to say that day now

kasa wo sasu hito no aida wo nui boku wa ima hashiri dasu
sono saki de kimi ni aeru naraba nidoto hanasanai

I run through the crowd opening up their umbrellas
If I meet you on the other side, I won’t let go again

Veltpunch – Crawl

Posted by Saki on January 11, 2009

Title: Crawl
Artist: Veltpunch

Nabari no Ou / 隠の王 Opening Theme

chi wo hau you ni susunde wa
heibon na joushou kurikaesu
kizamareta unmei datte tada shin kokyuu
tarinai no wa wakatteita
gouon ni tsubaresou na hibi
hari no you na ame mo yande kimi ga kita

Advancing as if crawling along the ground,
an ordinary ascent repeats
The engraved destiny, I just take a deep breath
I know that it’s not enough
The days broken by a thunderous roar
The needle-like rain stopped and you arrived

Sha la I sing for you
Sha la
iroaseta eien wa taikutsu no shouchou imi mo naku
umi no soko ni tsukurareta puuru mitai da
uzu wo egaku suimen ni taka sugiru sora ga utsuru
joudan nara wakaru you na toki ni shite

Sha la I sing for you
Sha la
The faded eternity is a symbol of boredom, it has no meaning either
Like a pool made at the bottom of the ocean
The high sky is reflected on the water’s swirling surface
If it’s a joke, then make it a time when I can understand

Sha la I sing for you
Sha la fight for myself
Sha la I sing for you
Sha la

taikutsu wa mou genkai desu

I’m at the limit of my boredom

tachi tsukushita suteji de naguri kaesu yuuki
I don’t care I don’t care
sonzai sae mo kimi wa warau ka na
hashiri dashita pesu de nagaretetta fuukei
I don’t care I don’t care I don’t care
tadashii kadouka wo tashikame ni yuku no desu ka?

On the still stage, the repeatedly punching courage
I don’t care I don’t care
Will you even laugh at existence?
The pace at which I began running, the flowing scenery
I don’t care I don’t care I don’t care
Are you going to check whether it’s right?

tadori tsuita gooru de hajimete shitta shinjitsu
I don’t care I don’t care
ashita ni nareba kimi mo kizuku ka na
hagare ochita sangatsu no igami kitta kuuki mo
I don’t care I don’t care
Going up the 13 steps
They’ll be waiting for your hands
itami wo shitta kyou kara atarashii sutaato nara
I’ll be there I’ll be there I’ll be there

The first truth I knew when I arrived at the goal
I don’t care I don’t care
Will you notice when tomorrow comes?
March’s distorted atmosphere which has fallen
I don’t care I don’t care
Going up the 13 steps
They’ll be waiting for your hands
Now that I know what pain is like, it’s a new start from today
I’ll be there I’ll be there I’ll be there

tsubuyaita goukai wa kimi no te ni kobiri tsuku
togi sumashita yaiba wo dare no tame ni furu no desu ka?

The murmured regrets cling to your hands
Who is it that you’re swinging the sharpened sword for?
