[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 …

[Lyrics] To Heart 2 ad ED – Kimi ga Nokoshita Mono [Uehara Rena]

Here’s the latest song for my To Heart 2 mini project. This time it is the ending for ad and ad plus. In English the title translates into What You Left Behind. Unlike the OP the two TV-size versions use the same few verses. Unfortunately this will be the last To Heart song for the …

[Lyrics] To Heart 2 ad OP – Niji no Kakehashi [Uehara Rena]

to-heart-2-ad-op-ed

So I decided to do a second song for today. This time it’s the opening theme for the OVAs To Heart 2 ad and To Heart 2 ad plus; ad uses the first part of the song while ad plus uses the second. I wonder if ad next will use the same songs? Anyway the …

[Lyrics] To Heart 2 ED – Tomoshibi [Suara]

Here’s today’s To Heart 2song translation post. This time it’s the original series’ ending theme which means Lamp or Light though I’ve chosen to go with light whenever it is mentioned in the song. It’s pretty much about the singer overcoming her troubles herself with a light burning in her heart. It’s a really nice …

[Lyrics] To Heart 2 OVA OP – Ichibanboshi [Suara]

maaryan-hug-sasara

Here’s the second song in my mini To Heart 2 translation project. The title means First Evening Star. It’s a nice song but the arrangement of the original lines makes for some interesting English. I realize I’ve skipped a song but I’ll get to that tomorrow. Until then enjoy!

[Lyrics] To Heart 2 OP – Hello [Ikeda Haruna]

to-heart-2-op-ed

As I mentioned in a previous post I want to start working on translating older songs that have been neglected. Since the first episode of To Heart 2 adnext is being released this week I decided to start off with the opening of the original To Heart 2 anime. Looking over the lyrics it really …

[Lyrics] Amagami SS ED3 – Anata Shika Mienai [Nakata Sae]

amagami-ss-ed3

Here’s Sae’s ending song performed by her voice actress Konno Hiromi. The title translates to You’re the Only One I Can See. This song’s pretty much cuteness overload so I can only listen to a few times in any given stretch of time. This arc was pretty goofy as always so I’m curious as to …

[Lyrics] K-ON!! Insert song – Gohan wa Okazu [HO-KAGO TEA TIME]

gohan-wa-okazu

Gohan wa Okazu or Rice as a Side Dish was an insert song during episode 20 of K-ON second season. It was played as part of their cultural festival concert though Yui came up with the lyrics back in episode 17. It’s really quirky as one can imagine a rice song can be but that’s …

[Lyrics] K-ON!! Insert song – U&I [HO-KAGO TEA TIME]

htt

U&I is from episode 17 of K-ON second season. Yui writes it to Ui when she realizes how important she is to her. The lyrics are simple and at times a little cheesy but it does a great job of conveying Yui’s honest feelings. It’s definitely one of my favorite songs from the series thus …
