It’s an almost full moon, but it’s really almost. Basically, it’s the moon that you see on the 14th day of the lunar calendar. The day after is a full moon.

The title sounds the same as 希望の月 (kibou no tsuki), which means ‘The Moon of Hope’. It’s really cool how we see things like that in Japanese. We also see a fairly standard alternative reading for 宇宙 (uchuu – space) – ‘sora’, which is the same as 空 (sky).


朔ついたち 藍 染めてく この星空に
破滅的な暗闇に 私は立ち尽くす
巡り巡るクロニクル この繊月に
アスファルトを踏みしめて 見上げた
宇宙そらへ高く羽を伸ばすよ

tsuitachi ai someteku kono hoshizora ni
hametsuteki na kurayami ni watashi wa tachitsukusu
meguri meguru kuronikuru kono sengetsu ni
asufaruto o fumishimete miageta
sora e takaku hane o nobasu yo

The new moon is dyed indigo in the starry sky above.
I stand still in destructive darkness.
The chronicle travels round and round the crescent moon.
I trod on the asphalt and looked up.
I spread my wings, aiming high in space.

大気の底映す オペラグラス覗く
揺蕩う明かりさ

taiki no soko utsusu operagurasu nozoku
tayutau akari sa

I looked through my opera glasses and, reflected at the bottom of the atmosphere,
was a flickering light.

三日月の風に乗り 宇宙 飛び回るよ
月明かりを切り取る さあ今
一閃の光が 夜 切り裂いてく
flying through the night

mikazuki no kaze ni nori sora tobimawaru yo
tsukiakari o kiritoru saa ima
hitosuji no hikari ga yoru kirisaiteku
flying through the night

I’ll ride the winds of the crescent moon and fly around space.
I’ll tear off a slither of moonlight. Now!
A flash of light tears the night to pieces.
Flying through the night.

上弦の月望む この高台で
僕らの影法師たち 月夜に照らされた
美しいその曲線に 寝そべったりして
うつらうつらと冴えない
意識で終わりの無い夢を見ている

jougen no tsuki nozomu kono takadai de
bokura no kageboushitachi tsukiyo ni terasareta
utsukushii sono kyokusen ni nesobettari shite
utsurautsura to saenai
ishiki de owari no nai yume o mite iru

I see the waxing moon from high ground.
Our silhouettes were illuminated in the moonlit night.
We sprawl in those beautiful curves.
We are drowsy, and we
consciously have an endless dream.

降り注ぐムーンライト 雲間くぐり抜け
宇宙そらを駆けてく

furisosogu muunraito kumoma kugurinuke
sora o kaketeku

Moonlight pours down, passing through the gaps between clouds.
I race through space.

遠かの夜を越え 宇宙そら 飛び回るよ
月明りを切り取る さあ今
真円の刻ときがほら もう 満たされてく
flying through the night

tooka no yoru o koe sora tobimawaru yo
tsuki akari o kiritoru saa ima
shin en no toki ga hora mou mitasareteku
flying through the night

I’ll pass through the distant night and fly about the sky.
I’ll tear off a slither of moonlight. Now!
When the moon is a perfect circle, look—it’s being made whole.
Flying through the night.

光で1秒の 世界を眺めて
輝き結ぶ

hikari de ichibyou no sekai o nagamete
kagayaki musubu

Through light, I gaze upon the world of a single second.
I tie the brightness together.

ツクヨミが時を統べ 闇 両手広げ
月明かりを切り取る さあ今
一閃の光が 夜 切り裂いてく
飛んでゆけ

tsukuyomi ga toki o sube yami ryoute hiroge
tsukiakari o kiritoru saa ima
hitosuji no hikari ga yoru kirisaiteku
tondeyuke

Tsukuyomi controls time. They stretch their arms in the darkness.
I’ll tear off a slither of moonlight. Now!
A flash of light tears the night to pieces.
Fly through the night!

幾望の月に満ち この夜空を抜け
月明かりを切り取る さあ今
永久に続く時間が 星空を照らす
flying through the night

kibou no tsuki ni michi kono yozora o nuke
tsukiakari o kiritoru saa ima
towa ni tsuzuku jikan ga hoshizora o terasu
flying through the night

Infused by an almost full moon, I escape the night sky.
I’ll tear off a slither of moonlight. Now!
Time, continuing for eternity, illuminates the starry sky.
Flying through the night.
