higurashi-rei-op-back

Finally the opening single I have been waiting for the most has come out! Super scription of data is a brilliant song and the lyrics match so well with Rika’s story that I obviously HAD to transliterate and translate it. I also included two translator’s notes at the end.

I don’t know the exact details but a 45 second cut of Umineko no Naku Koro ni’s anime opening song was leaked on Nico Nico Douga recently.
