It’s another ordinary day in the life of Nitori, the intrepid inventor. Our heroine dreams of understanding the world, and all of its mysteries…
I don’t know why, but I just had an image of the album art as a film poster with ‘Meramipop is… Nitori!’ in big letters at the bottom. Putting that aside, the title of this section is different in the lyrics booklet. In the booklet, it’s かみ合った歯車 (kamiatta haguruma, Enmeshed Gears).
Well now, it’s another ordinary morning. Hello, hello, hello!
The sun’s smiling, too. It’s fine weather for inventing!
Why say things like “what can I do?” – Enjoyment comes from actually doing it!
I’m the kappa’s machinist!
Stimulating things don’t change,
Whether they’re massive machines or just small parts!
Tick-tock – in the blink of an eye, time goes by.
Yes, I can’t leave mysterious things alone!
I’ll end up opening those secret locks.
I peeked through that undone keyhole… and I looked up at the sky.
I’ll take everything apart and understand it! I want to know anything – everything!
Now, I wonder what I’ll invent today? Hah, my worries are everlasting…
I’m the inventor of the century… or something like that!
