[Lyrics] Fortune Arterial: Akai Yakusoku ED – I miss you [Veil]

fortune-arterial-akai-yakusoku-ed

I miss you is a fairly simply song that heavily repeats the phrase “I miss you.” Verses 2 and 3 also have some interesting structural parallels with 5 and 6 but there really isn’t much else to say about the lyrics. It’s pleasant to listen to at least. The CD itself has multiple versions of …

[Lyrics] K-ON!! Insert Song – Tenshi ni Fureta yo! [HO-KAGO TEA TIME]

ho-kago-tea-time-second

So I didn’t realize this song was already out until late last night since I thought it would be released as a single first. Anyway this is the song that Yui and the original members sing to Azusa before leaving school for the last time. It’s a really touching song that sums up the wonderful …

[Lyrics] Amagami SS ED4 – Koi wa Mizuiro [Nanasaki Ai]

amagami-ss-ed4

Finally here’s my favorite of the Amagami EDs thus far. It helps that Ai is my favorite girl. The lyrics are a bit “choppy” at parts and has a good deal of repetition of sound so I tried to preserve those qualities in the translation. Trying to string together the words was an interesting experience …

[Lyrics] Otome Youkai Zakuro OP – MOON SIGNAL [sphere]

otome-zakuro-op

I’ve been following Sphere since it was formed but I’ve recently become a bigger fan with Asobi ni Iku yo!‘s fantastically addicting OP. In contrast with the future pop of that song this one takes us back in time. The lyrics sound very classical so I tried to keep the English similar and a little …

[Lyrics] Motto To LOVE-Ru OP – Loop-the-Loop [KOTOKO]

motto-to-love-ru-op

Although Loop-the-Loop isn’t as catchy as the original anime’s opening it still has it’s own charm. It’s use of quirky space and “science” imagery is very in tune with the tone of the show. It’s a little hard to sing but that’s not that surprising for a KOTOKO song. Anyway I hope you enjoy this. …

[Lyrics] Amagami SS OP2 – Kimi no Mama de [azusa]

amagami-ss-op2

Amagami’s new OP like the first is extremely catchy. Between the words that evoke the winter season, the reciprocal love that moves from the past into the future and the ability to be oneself around one’s lover, the song produces a really wonderful image. Of course it’s wrapped up in a nice rhythm that’s fun …

[Lyrics] Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai OP – irony [ClariS]

oreimo-op

Considering that OreImo is my favorite show of the season, it’s no surprise that it managed to take me out of my translation slump. The OP is a wonderful song that expresses Kirino’s honest feelings very well. I don’t want to take up too much space raving about how much I love Kirino so I’ll …

ika-index-musume

The season thus far has been packed with so much great potential akin to that of the fall 2008 season. As such it looks as if keeping up with all the shows will be an enjoyably hectic ride. Continuing our joint activities (Honya [Lyrical Spark] and Aorii [Major Arcana]), here are our fall 2010 impressions!
