Every couple of years since 2008 I’ve challenged myself to write a post with the basic premise of assembling a list of characters to be in my fictional family. If you have ever watched or read Kyouran Kazoku Nikki then the idea is essentially the same. I usually try to get others to join me in my insanity and results vary anywhere between families which would be actually great to live with and be functional to random amalgamations of strangeness and hilarity. The last time I did this it was more or less a refined version of the first list. I pretty much consider the second version to be near perfect on all fronts so I wouldn’t have changed too much about it if I had to tweak it even further. Not wanting to rehash the post and just say the same things again I decided this time to start completely from scratch and not use any characters I’ve already featured previously. As such this took quite a bit longer than expected and is a couple days late but I hope you enjoy the delusional rambling I have created.

Even though the anime hasn’t aired yet I decided to translate this godly song early after seeing the fantastic PV for it. Since I’m basing these lyrics on the PV and not the booklet, there are a couple spots where I am a little uncertain. As such lyrics will be updated after the single is released next week. Until then please enjoy.

Once again another year has passed so it’s time to reflect on the past and to think about goals for the future. It seems there have been a lot of ups and downs in the past year so the review section is quite long. With that in mind the goals section is of similar length but please do stay around until the end of this wall of text.

The Smile Precure websites were updated recently so I felt like translating the official character and story materials. It pretty much reconfirms the rumors and leaked info we’ve already seen but it also has some nice new tidbits. First up are translations of information from Asahi’s Smile Precure site. Pictures are omitted since the other site has better versions.

At long last it is the final entry in Twelve Days of Amagami. I’ve saved stories for last since it features the 6 main heroines singing together. With this all currently released Amagami anime songs have now been translated by me. I really hope everyone found my song translations to be helpful. It took me a while but I truly did enjoy working on these. For anyone curious, yes, I will be translating the Amagami SS+ plus songs as well when they are released. I’m also thinking of translating the Amagami game songs too so if anyone is interested please ask me! Anyway Merry Christmas to all and please look forward to more Amagami next year!

[Lyrics] Amagami SS Character Image Songs For You… – Sweet Message [Sakurai Rihoko (CV: Shintani Ryouko)]
Christmas Eve brings Rihoko’s For You song. I actually had to rewatch her arc because I was unsure if there was a secondary meaning behind “love” and “charm” which I had forgotten. Turns out it had to do with the made up story the older tea club members told Rihoko concerning choux crème. Anyway I hope she has better luck in Amagami SS+ plus. Please enjoy this nice song.
