Original Theme: Dichromatic Lotus Butterfly ~ Red and White [二色蓮花蝶 ~ Red and White]

Requested by: Kommisar

When you think about it, the ‘dilemma’ in the title could also be about choosing between sin and impurity. 罪穢 itself isn’t really a proper word. Instead, it contains elements of both of the characters that it’s formed from.


私の心を惑わせるのは真紅に染まった唇
憂いの鎖で縛り付けて笑うの
それでもあなたは満足できないの
まるで何も無かったように
言葉の刃をまた突き立てるのね

watashi no kokoro o madowaseru no wa shinkuu ni somatta kuchibiru
urei no kusari de shibari tsukete warau no
sore demo anata wa manzoku dekinai no
marude nani mo nakatta you ni
kotoba no yaiba o mata tsukitateru no ne

Your crimson lips send my heart astray.
You bound me in chains of sadness and laughed.
Still, you weren’t satisfied.
As if they were nothing,
You thrust those words, like blades, into me again.

離れゆく心、散りながら激しく舞い咲き乱れて

hanare yuku kokoro, chiri nagara hageshiku mai saki midarete

Our hearts part, and while scattering, they dance furiously and fiercely bloom.

失うことを怖れては変われないと
哀哭の歌が響いた聖者のいない部屋で穢れながら

ushinau koto o osorete wa kawarenai to
aikoku no uta ga hibiita seija no inai heya de kegare nagara

I was unable to change from fear of loss.
My song of grief echoed in a saintless room. All the while, I was impure.

何故あなたは獣のような瞳で
ねぇ私をパペットのようにまた弄ぶのね
何故あなたは氷のように冷たく
ねぇ私を傷つけてよ
もう何もいらないから

naze anata wa kemono no you na hitomi de
nee watashi o papetto no you ni mata moteasobu no ne
naze anata wa koori no you ni tsumetaku
nee watashi o kizutsukete yo
mou nani mo iranai kara

Hey, why do you look at me with beastly eyes
and play with me again like a puppet?
Why are you as cold as ice?
Hey, hurt me
because I don’t need anything anymore.

離れゆく心、散りながら激しく舞い咲き乱れて

hanare yuku kokoro, chiri nagara hageshiku mai saki midarete

Our hearts part, and while scattering, they dance furiously and fiercely bloom.

失うことを怖れた自分に背を向け
哀哭の歌が響いた聖者のいない部屋で
絡まる赤い糸、解いて呪縛を抜けたとき
私の心は何色に染まっているのでしょう
楽しみね

ushinau koto o osoreta jibun ni se o muke
aikoku no uta ga hibiita seija no inai heya de
karamaru akai ito, hodoite jubaku o nuketa toki
watashi no kokoro wa naniiro ni somatte iru no deshou
tanoshimi ne

I turned my back on myself, who feared loss.
My song of grief echoed in a saintless room.
When I unfasten the red thread binding me and release the curse,
What colour will my heart turn?
I’m looking forward to it…

微睡むなか、私照らす微かな光
穢れた羽、白く照らし自由へと誘うの
全ての答えを求めて全て失くしても
穢れた羽に目を背け同じ寄生木へと

madoromu naka, watashi terasu wazuka na hikari
kegareta hane, shiroku terashi jiyuu e to izanau no
subete no kotae o motomete subete nakushitemo
kegareta hane ni me o somuke onaji yadorigi e to

A faint light illuminates me as I doze.
Impure wings shine white and beckon me to freedom.
I seek answers to everything, even if I’ll lose it all.
I will turn away from those impure wings, and they will become mistletoe.

美しい華のような心のままでと
願いは届かない 尊いものは散ってしまうから
絡まる赤い糸、解いて呪縛を抜けたとき
二人照らすあの場所へ羽ばたくわ何処までも
蝶のように

utsukushii hana no you na kokoro no mama de to
negai wa todokanai toutoi mono wa chitte shimau kara
karamaru akai ito, hodoite jubaku o nuketa toki
futari terasu ano basho e habataku wa doko made mo
chou no you ni

I wished that my heart would remain like a beautiful flower
but my wish won’t be heard. After all, precious things will die.
When I unfasten the red thread binding me and release the curse,
I will fly to the place that illuminates us, no matter how far,
Like a butterfly.

Requested by: 桐生 遷都

Interestingly, there’s both a 僕 (boku – ‘masculine’ I) and a 私 (watashi – ‘feminine’ I) in this song.


瞬くよりも安らかな眠りを求めてる
気づけば僕は知っていたんだ

mabataku yori mo yasuraka na nemuri o motometeru
kidzukeba boku wa shitte ita nda

I seek a slumber more peaceful than blinking.
I realise that I knew it all along.

言葉を交わさないともう 聞こえない
気が付いたら すべてが綺麗事

kotoba o kawasanai to mou kikoenai
ki ga tsuitara subete ga kireigoto

If you don’t speak, it can’t be heard.
When I paid attention, all those words were insincere.

そう、何かの物語に似ていると思えてしまう
のんきな私がいた

sou, nanika no monogatari ni nite iru to omoete shimau
nonki na watashi ga ita

Yes—I wound up thinking it was like some kind of story.
I was so carefree.

どうせすべてがそうなるなら
いいでしょう 唄うように生きたい

douse subete ga sou naru nara
ii deshou utau you ni ikitai

Besides, if everything will end up like that
then it doesn’t matter. I want to live life like a song.

月のようには輝かずに
ひとり夜風に当たって
口ずさみたい ちっぽけな唄

tsuki no you ni kagayakazu ni
hitori yokaze ni atatte
kuchizusa mitai chippoke na uta

Without shining like the moon,
I sing alone in the night wind.
It’s a tiny song, like a hum.

彩られ続けられないと
壊れる幸せは 苦しいだけと
君は言ってたね

irodorare tsudzukarenai to
kowareru shiawase wa kurushii dake to
kimi wa itteta ne

It’s painful to feel happiness
that will fall apart if it isn’t always dressed up.
That’s what you said, right?

新しいモノを好きになることに
卑しさを感じていたあの頃

atarashii mono o suki ni naru koto ni
iyashisa o kanjite ita ano koro

Back then, I felt so mean
falling in love with a new person.

願いは無限にあるクセに遠慮がち
矛盾を隠しながら

negai wa mugen ni aru kuse ni enryogachi
mujin o kakushi nagara

My wishes are unlimited, yet I’m so shy.
All the while, I hide my contradictions.

手を伸ばすより 照らされるくらいの幸せがいい
ありあまらない 微睡みの中
瞬くよりも安らかな眠りを求めてる
夜空を見つめ 君は言ってたね

te o nobasu yori terasareru kurai no shiawase ga ii
ari amaranai madoromi no naka
atataku yori mo yasuraka na nemuri o motometeru
yozora o mitsume kimi wa itteta ne

Rather than stretching further, enough happiness to illuminate me is fine.
There isn’t enough. I’m napping.
I seek a slumber more peaceful than blinking.
We looked at the night sky, and you said those words to me.

月のようには輝かずに
ひとり夜風に当たって
口ずさみたい ちっぽけな唄

tsuki no you ni wa kagayakazu ni
hitori yokaze ni atatte
kuchizusa mitai chippoke na uta

Without shining like the moon,
I sing alone in the night wind.
It’s a tiny song, like a hum.

気付いたよ
君は全然私の中から消えてないんだ
ずっとここにいた

kidzuita yo
kimi wa zenzen watashi no naka kara kietenai nda
zutto koko ni ita

I’ve figured it out—
You never vanished from inside me.
You were here all along.

Requested by: ninreaper

Like a lot of other tracks by this circle, this one seems to be about a hopeless relationship. They go through the motions, but it doesn’t look like anything positive will come from it. Still, IZNA’s voice is great like always, and I like the way NSY approached this theme.

I went with ‘Hopeless Discord’ for 絶望的不協和音, so I went with ‘Hopeless Concerto’ for 絶望的協奏曲.


Radio, please!
I want to listen to music.
お願い、please!
Just give me something new one.

僕は望んでいた あの日見てた世界を
何も変わらないままで
僕は探していた 顔や体(てい)の良い素材
never ending 演じて、そう

boku wa nozonde ita ano hi miteta sekai o
nani mo kawaranai mama de
boku wa sagashite ita kao ya tei no ii sozai
never ending enjite, sou

I hoped that the world I looked upon back then
would never change.
I was searching for good materials for my face and form.
It’s like a never-ending performance.

聴いて初めての音

kiite hajimete no oto

I heard that sound for the first time.

眠らない夜の海を この身一つで泳いでいく
不安とか主体も
受け止めてあげていいんじゃない?

nemuranai yoru no umi o kono mi hitotsu de oyoide iku
fuan toka shutai mo
uketomete agete ii njanai?

I’ll swim through the sea of a sleepless night using my body alone.
Isn’t it okay
if I accept doubt and the core of things?

愛情よりも切なくて、この胸を焦がす
得体の知れない想いをふつふつと湧かせど
最高潮の悦楽で、己を誤魔化す以外の
悪いね 方法が見つからないの

aijou yori mo setsunakute, kono mune o kogasu
etai no shirenai omoi o futsu futsu to wakasedo
saikouchou no etsuraku de, onore o gomakasu igai no
warui ne, houhou ga mitsukaranai no

This feeling is more painful than love. It burns my heart
and makes something unknown bubble and well up inside me.
Still, I deceive you through the pleasure of climax.
Sorry – I can’t find any other way.

君が残していく 色や人の香りは
綺麗でそりゃ鮮やかで
僕は見つめてる 瞳 逸らすことなく
every one-night 終わらない章

kimi ga nokoshite iku iro ya hito no kaori wa
kirei de sorya azayaka de
boku wa mitsumeteru hitomi sorasu koto naku
every one-night owaranai shou

You leave behind colours and a human scent.
They’re so beautiful, so vivid.
I’m staring now, without turning my eyes away.
Every one night is an endless chapter. (1)

二人鏡の中の

futari kagami no naka no

We’re inside the mirror.

何も無い窓の外を 並んでただ眺めていたの
時報(アラーム)が鳴っても
誰の声すらも届かない

nani mo nai mado no soto o narande tada nagamete ita no
araamu ga nattemo
dare no koe sura mo todokanai

I stood by the window and gazed out at the emptiness.
The alarm rings
but nobody’s voice will reach me now.

最上階の端っこから この背中を押す
世界のIKENAI秘密をひっそりと知るけど
もう後悔の連続で always残らず痛いよ
歩いて 誰かに試されているみたい

saijoukai no hashikko kara kono senaka o osu
sekai no IKENAI himitsu o hissori to shiru kedo
mou koukai no renzoku de always nokorazu itai yo
aruite dareka ni tamasarete iru mitai

You push me from the edge of the top floor
though I quietly know this world’s forbidden secrets.
I keep feeling remorse, and it’s always painful.
I walk. It’s like I’m being tested by someone.

Radio, please!
I want to listen to music.

そう、まるで君はDiva 僕には届かない

seijaku o kirisaku seikaku na high-tone
eikaku na ATARI ni odoroki no amari

sou, marude kimi wa Diva boku ni wa todokanai

Your accurate high tones tore through the silence.
I reached the corner, and to my surprise
you were there on the clear screen.
Yes, you’re like a diva. I won’t reach you.

最上階の端っこから この背中を押す
世界のIKENAI秘密をひっそりと知るけど
言い逃れして今日も街がalways夕日に染まるの
ultimate 誰かに導かれてるみたい

saijoukai no hashikko kara kono senaka o osu
sekai no IKENAI himitsu o hissori to shiru kedo
iinogare shite kyou mo machi ga always yuuhi ni somaru no
ultimate dareka ni michibikareteru mitai

You push me from the edge of the top floor
though I quietly know this world’s forbidden secrets.
I talk myself out of it, but the streets are always stained with dusk’s colours.
Ultimate. It’s like I’m being led by someone.

Radio, please!

Requested by: Eldrin

In the end, I took this request off my list by accident – I rediscovered it when I was cleaning the comments on my request page. Sorry about that!


ようやくやって来たこの微熱 準備はOK?
いつも通りの格好でも 隠せない逸る気持ち
大人しいコで通してたけど もう我慢できない
待ち望んでた季節を 解放しよう

youyaku yatte kita kono binetsu junbi wa OK?
itsumo doori no kakkoo demo kakusenai hayaru kimochi
otonashii ko de tooshiteta kedo mou gaman dekinai
machi nozondeta kisetsu o kaihou shiyo

This fever has arrived at last. Am I ready?
I look the same as always, but I can’t hide my high spirits.
I acted so obedient in the past, but I can’t endure it anymore.
It’s time for me to release the season I’ve been waiting for!

(Summer enjoy. Summer get you)

この夏は焼いて勝負
眩しい太陽 君の体温 どっちで火傷しよう

kono natsu wa yaite shoubu
mabushii taiyou kimi no taion docchi de yakedo shiyou

This summer I’ll get tanned and have a contest—
The radiant sun or your warmth: which will I get burned by?

怖いものなんかないくらいで 無理無茶無謀が大正解
Miracle Blue Sky in Summer Days
神様くれた宝物みたい ふたり占めしたいのに
夢のような時間 凍らせてみても
すぐに溶けちゃう 何故?

kowai mono nanka nai kurai de muri mucha mubou ga taishoukai
Miracle Blue Sky in Summer Days
kamisama kureta takaramono mitai futarijime shitai noni
yume no you na jikan koorasete mitemo
sugu ni toke chau naze?

There’s nothing to be afraid of—doing impossible, absurd, reckless things is the way to go.
Miracle blue sky in summer days.
It’s like a present from the gods. I want it to be ours alone
but though I try to freeze these dream-like hours,
They just thaw away. Why?

どこがどうってわけじゃないけど 大人びた様な
変わらない無邪気なstyle 気のせいだったみたい
ほら 無防備で華奢な笑顔投げつけてくる
何も考えてないの ちょっとズルいね

doko ga dou tte wake janai kedo otonabita you na
kawaranai mujaki na style ki no sei datta mitai
hora muboubi de kyasha na egao nagetsukete kuru
nani mo kangaetenai no chotto zurui ne

It’s not that I don’t get what’s going on. It’s like I’ve grown up.
A constant, innocent style. It’s like it was all in my head.
Look—you throw a defenceless, gorgeous smile my way.
I’m not scheming! That’s a bit sly…

(調子狂う Icicle)
ひと夏の楽園は
君の隣 今感じてる 全身で確かめよう

(choushi kuruu Icicle)
hito natsu no rakuen wa
kimi no tonari ima kanjiteru zenshin de tashikameyou

(Mad icicles…)
Summer paradise
is what I feel next to you. I want to use my body to make sure of it…

砂の城もっと積み上げて 夢中で波乗り込んで
疲れたら大の字転んで 沈んだ陽に沿って
星を数えんだ きっと忘れないから
夢のような時間 君といつまでも
南風吹き止むまで

suna no shiro motto tsumiagete muchuu de nami norikonde
tsukaretara dai no ji koronde shizunda ki ni sotte
hoshi o kazoe nda kitto wasurenai kara
yume no you na jikan kimi to itsu made mo
minami fuki yamu made

We build our sandcastle even taller. We ride the waves in ecstasy.
When we get tired we sprawl out on the ground, parallel with the setting sun.
I count the stars. I’ll never be able to forget,
So I’ll be together with you in these dream-like hours
until the south wind stops blowing.

いっぱい君に感謝して
いっぱい君追いかけて
たくさん君にさよならを伝えたい
明日も次の夏も

ippai kimi ni kansha shite
ippai kimi oikakete
takusan kimi ni sayonara o tsutaetai
asu mo tsugi no natsu mo

I’m so grateful to you.
I chase after you so much.
I want to say so many farewells to you
tomorrow, and next summer too.

いつかは思い出に変わるの でも今はそんなん関係ない
Miracle Blue Sky in Summer Days
神様くれた宝物みたい ふたり占めしたいのに
夢のような時間 凍らせてみても
やっぱり溶けちゃう 何故?

itsuka wa omoide ni kawaru no demo ima wa sonna n kankeinai
Miracle Blue Sky in Summer Days
kamisama kureta takaramono mitai futarijime shitainoni
yume no you na jikan koorasete mitemo
yappari toke chau naze?

These times will become memories someday, but that doesn’t matter now.
Miracle blue sky in summer days.
It’s like a present from the gods. I want it to be ours alone
but though I try to freeze these dream-like hours,
They just thaw away. Why?

自由な思考 月の裏側 ゆっくりと瞳閉じて
僕等の知らない幻想が ah広がっていく

jiyuu na shikou tsuki no uragawa yukkuri to hitomi tojite
bokura no shiranai sekai ga ah hirogatte iku

Free thoughts. The moon’s other side. I slowly close my eyes.
A world we don’t know, ah… it spreads out. (1)

lapis lazuliの夜空駆け巡れば 小さなこの胸ときめいて
秘密の欠片に魔法をかけたら ふわふわり飛んでるみたい
透明な虹を渡る まだ見たことない裏側の幻想
ほら呼んでる耳を澄まして 月明かりが僕等を手招いた

lapis lazuli no yozora kake megureba chiisana kono mune tokimeite
himitsu no kakera ni mahou o kaketara fuwa fuwari tonderu mitai
toumei na niji o wataru mada mita koto nai uragawa no sekai
hora yonderu mimi o sumashite tsukiakari ga bokura o temaneita

When I race about the lapis lazuli sky, my small heart throbs.
If I cast a spell on the secret fragments, they look like they’re lightly flying.
We’ll cross over a transparent rainbow, to the unseen world of the other side.
Look, it’s calling. Listen… the moonlight beckons to us.

眠りは深い月を描いた ぼやけた瞳に映る
幻想郷の向こう側 さあ僕等を乗せて

nemuri wa fukai tsuki o egaita boyaketa hitomi ni utsuru
kyoukaisen no mukougawa saa bokura o nosete

In sleep, I drew an intense moon, which is reflected in my dim eyes.
Now, carry us to the boundary’s other side! (2)

カボチャの馬車でどこまでも遠くへ 小さなこの夢詰め込んで
光の彼方へまどろむ幻想へ ゆらゆら心揺らめいては

kabocha no basha de doko made mo tooku e chiisana kono yume tsumekonde
hikari no kanata e madoromu sekai e yura yura kokoro yurameite wa

We’ll go far away, anywhere, aboard a pumpkin carriage. We’ll cram in our small dreams.
We’ll head to that shining place, to a slumbering world. Our hearts tremble.

透明な虹を渡る 僕等の知らない夢の幻想へ
ほら呼んでる耳を澄まして 囁く声が僕等を導く

toumei na niji o wataru bokura no shiranai yume no sekai e
hora yonderu mimi o sumashite sasayaku koe ga bokura o michibiku

We’ll cross an invisible rainbow, heading to a world of dreams we don’t know.
Look, they’re calling. Listen closely. Whispers are guiding us.

ah やがて魔法は解け 鐘が響き

ah yagate mahou wa toke kane ga hibiki

Ah, the spell will break at last and the bell will ring.

夢から覚めても輝いた日々を 何も恐れる事なんてないから
あの日あの場所で失くした欠片を きっと今も追い求めて

yume kara sametemo kagayaita hibi o nani mo osoreru koto nante nai kara
ano hi ano basho de nakushita kakera o kitto ima mo oi motomete

Even if I wake from this dream, there nothing to fear in these sparkling days
so I’ll continue to pursue the fragments I lost that day, at that place.

儚く輝いた sapphireの涙は落ちて
優しく微笑んだ moonlightに照らされて

hakanaku kagayaita sapphire no namida wa ochite
yasashiku hohoenda moonlight ni terasarete

My sapphire tears shone for a moment and fell.
I was illuminated by the moonlight, which smiled tenderly.

自由な思考月の裏側 ゆっくりと瞳閉じて
幻想郷の向こう側 さあ僕等を乗せて
ah 僕等はかわる

jiyuu na shikou tsuki no uragawa yukkuri to hitomi tojite
gensoukyou no mukougawa saa bokura o nosete
ah bokura wa kawaru

Free thoughts. The moon’s other side. I slowly close my eyes.
Now, carry us to the boundary’s other side!
Ah… we’re changing.

1,2!
過ぎていった時間を悔やんでちゃ駄目だよ
二度と返らないから
3,4!
リズムに乗っちゃえば「そのうちいいことある」なんて
そのくらいが 丁度いいんじゃない?

1, 2!
You can’t regret times that have passed by
since you can’t go back.
3, 4!
When you ride the rhythm, “something good will happen before long.”
That’s just right, isn’t it?

前のめったり もたったりして 上手く歩けない今日が
いつまでも続く そんな気がしてるの?
そんな絶望に 全てが嫌になっちゃうなら
ちょっと 私に合わせてみない?

mae nomettari motattari shite umaku arukenai kyou ga
itsu made mo tsudzuku sonna ki ga shiteru no?
sonna zetsubou ni subete ga iya ni nacchau nara
chotto watashi ni awasete minai?

You fall forward and into a heap. You can’t walk well today…
Do you feel like these days will last forever?
If you get fed up with everything in such despair,
Won’t you play some music with me?

さぁ その腕を振り上げろ その脚で飛んでみて
誰の真似もしなくていい それがキミのリズムだ
もう返らない過去なんて 置いてけぼりにしちゃったらいい
次に振り返るときは 笑って話してる
それまで今日を鳴らそう 私たちの音で

saa sono ude o furi agero sono ashi de tonde mite
dare no mane mo shinakute ii sore ga kimi no rizumu da
mou kaeranai kako nante oite kebori ni shichattara ii
tsugi ni furi kaeru toki wa waratte hanashiteru
sore made kyou o narasou watashi-tachi no oto de

Now, raise your hands and leap off with your legs.
You don’t need to pretend to be someone else—it’s your rhythm!
You’ll be fine if you just throw away the past. It won’t come back.
Next time you look back, you’ll be laughing and talking about it.
Until then, let’s ring out these days with our sounds.

どれ? 難しくキミのことを考えさせるのは
どんな選択肢なの
ミ・ファ!ずっと下向いてても 答えなんて落ちてない
だから 少しだけ私を見て

dore? muzukashiku kimi no koto o kangaesaseru no wa
donna sentakushi nano
mi fa! zutto shita muitetemo kotae nante ochitenai
dakara sukoshi dake watashi o mite

Which one? Which path makes you think
so seriously?
Mi, fa! You always look down, but the answer isn’t dropped anywhere,
So look at me for a bit…

高すぎても低すぎても いつも苦しくなるから
「等身大」探す それも難しくて
それなら私に合わせて 歌うたってみない?
きっと 見つかる 二人なら

takasugitemo hikusugitemo itsumo kurushiku naru kara
“toushindai” sagasu sore mo muzukashikute
sore nara watashi ni awasete utau tatte minai?
kitto mitsukaru futari nara

If it’s too tall or too short it always gets painful,
so you search for something ‘life-sized.’ Still, it’s difficult.
If that’s the case, won’t you sing with me?
If we’re together, we’ll definitely find it.

さぁ その声を張り上げろ 君から聴かせてみて
誰の共感もなくていい それがキミの声なら
もう変わらない数字なんて 後回しにしてやったらいい
何を選んでしまっても 後悔は必ずあるから
さぁ 歌おう キミだけのメロディ

saa sono koe o hari agero kimi kara kikasete mite
dare no kyoukan mo nakute ii sore ga kimi no koe nara
mou kawaranai suuji nante atomawashi ni shite yattara ii
nani o erande shimattemo koukai wa kanarazu aru kara
saa utaou kimi dake no merodi

Now, raise your voice! Let me hear it from you!
You don’t need anyone’s sympathy. If it’s your voice…
Put off numbers that won’t change anymore!
No matter what you choose, you’ll have regrets
so let’s sing a melody now, one that’s yours alone!

記号だらけの五線譜で 躓いて立ち止まって
誰の拍手も鳴らずに ステージは変わらずに
そんな冴えない過去には 構わずさよならしたらいい
新しい音描こう さぁ二人で

kigou darake no yononaka de tsumazuite tachidomatte
dare no hakushu mo narazu ni suteeji wa kawarazu ni
sonna saenai kako niwa kamawazu sayonara shitara ii
atarashii oto egakou saa futari de

You stumble to a halt when faced with the world, like staves covered with codes.
The stage remains unchanged, and nobody applauds.
You should just say farewell to such a dull past.
Let’s make some new sounds together!

さぁ その腕を振り上げろ その脚で飛んでみて
誰の真似もしなくていい それがキミのリズムだ
もう返らない過去なんて 置いてけぼりにしちゃったらいい
次に振り返るときは 笑って話してる
それまで今日を鳴らそう 私たちのメロディ

saa sono ude o furi agero sono ashi de tonde mite
dare no mane mo shinakute ii sore ga kimi no rizumu da
mou kaeranai kako nante oite kebori ni shichattara ii
tsugi ni furi kaeru toki wa waratte hanashiteru
sore made kyou o narasou watashi-tachi no merodi

Now, raise your hands and leap off with your legs.
You don’t need to pretend to be someone else—it’s your rhythm!
You’ll be fine if you just throw away the past. It won’t come back.
Next time you look back, you’ll be laughing and talking about it.
Let’s ring out the times from the past with our melody.

A… unn! This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a song reference both Aunn’s name and the meditative A-un…


外は花乱れ 散って明日は我が身なれど花見酒
感じるのは暖かみだけ

soto wa hana midare chitte asu wa waga mi naredo hanamizake
kanjiru no wa atatakami dake

Outside, the flowers are in disarray, and they fall. I, too, may fall tomorrow, but I will drink while watching them.
All I feel is warmth.

遠くの方で僕を呼ぶ声がした
大きくなって虹と混ざって弧を描いた

tooku no hou de boku o yobu koe ga shita
ookiku natte niji to mazatte ko o egaita

A voice called for me in the distance.
It grew larger, then it blended with a rainbow and drew an arc.

君がいれば 騒がしさに相乗
寄れば二身一対 交わります

kimi ga ireba sawagashisa ni soujou
yoreba nishin ittsui majiwarimasu

When you’re here, things get noisier.
When we get closer, our paired bodies mix together.

上等じゃん 相手は色とりどりの 時々勝利よりも私情
世にも奇妙 うらら桜花爛漫
満開!AH と言えばUN 静寂ごと飲み込む薄紅の怒涛
春の嵐 一切合切も敵じゃない!

joutou jan aite wa iro toridori no tokidoki shouri yori mo shijou
yo ni mo kimyou urara ouka roman
mankai! AH to ieba UN seijaku goto nomikomu usubeni no dotou
haru no arashi issai gassai mo teki janai!

Bring it on! My opponents vary. Sometimes they act in self-interest rather than seeking victory.
How curious. This is a beautiful flurry of cherry blossoms.
Full bloom! When you say ‘AH,’ you follow it with ‘UN!’ Waves of light pink swallow all the silence up.
The spring storm rages. Nothing will stand against me!

右から左へと矢継ぎ早に
そっち退けで鳴り響く祭り囃子

migi kara hidari e to yatsugibaya ni
socchi noke de nari hibiku matsuri bayashi

From right to left in rapid succession,
The festival band plays while ignoring what’s around.

いつの間にか 馴染んじゃった居候
呼べば 古今東西駆け付けます

itsu no ma ni ka najinjatta isourou
yobeba kokon touzai kaketsukemasu

You became used to me, a freeloader, before you knew it.
When you call, I’ll come running no matter the time or place.

相当じゃん 掻き鳴らせ口三味線 それじゃ見せてあげましょうか
小さな異変 ちゃっちゃと解決円満
万歳!AH と言えばUN 大切な かけがえないこの刹那
泣くのはナシ 失敗ばっかも上出来じゃない?

soutou jan kaki narase kuchi jamisen sore ja misete agemashouka
chiisana ihen chaccha to kaiketsu enman
banzai! AH to ieba UN taisetsu na kakegaenai kono setsuna
naku no wa nashi shippai bakka mo joudeki ja nai?

How suitable. Strum a tune on the shamisen!
Now, shall I show you?
I’ll quickly solve a small incident, then there will be harmony.
Cheers! When you say ‘AH,’ you follow it with ‘UN!’ This moment is irreplaceable.
Don’t cry—if you just fail, it’s a good performance too, right?

君の傍で 護りたい理想郷
お互い以心伝心 間違いない

kimi no soba de mamoritai risoukyou
otagai ishin denshin machigai nai

I want to protect this utopia by your side.
We can read each other’s thoughts. That’s for certain!

上等じゃん 伊達酔狂 だって最強 勝手な起承転結が至上
いつでもそう これが弾幕浪漫
もっかい!AHと言えばUN 静寂ごと飲み込む薄紅の怒涛
春の嵐はまだ終わんないしさ
春のOne Night Scene Inside Outside, 寄ってきなさい!!

joutou jan date suikyou datte saikyou katte na kishou tenketsu ga shijou
itsu demo sou kore ga danmaku roman
mokkai! AH to ieba UN seijaku goto nomikomu usubeni no dotou
haru no arashi wa mada owannai shi sa
haru no One Night Scene Inside Outside, yotte kinasai!!

Bring it on! I act drunk because I’m the strongest. Arbitrary plot developments are supreme. (1)
It’s like this all the time. It’s adventurous danmaku.
Once more! When you say ‘AH!’ you follow with ‘UN.’ Waves of light pink swallow all the silence up.
The spring storm hasn’t ended yet, either.
This is one night scene in spring. Inside, outside, come closer!


(1) ‘Plot developments’ (起承転結 – ‘kishou tenketsu’) is a specific reference to the structure of a type of Chinese poetry. It consists of an introduction, development, turn and conclusion.

Watch the official PV here!

It goes without saying, but the meaning of this song changes a lot depending on your interpretation. We’ve got one あなた (anata – ‘you’) and one あたし (atashi – ‘I’ [feminine]), but everything else is a blank slate. It’s good practice to assume that unattributed lines are spoken by the speaker, but this song felt… different. Is the speaker a god-like figure, issuing commands to someone beneath them?


おんなじだけ夢を見てる狡猾さに
違う言葉を今ただ待ち続けている
今しがた終わるはずだった想像に
延命処置を続けてまだ息を注ぐ

onnaji dake yume o miteru koukatsusa ni
chigau kotoba o ima tada machi tsudzukete iru
ima shigata owaru hazu datta souzou ni
enmei shochi o tsudzukete mada iki o tsugu

Faced with the slyness of having the same dreams
I’m still waiting for different words, even now.
My imagination should have ended just now
but I continue life support and keep pouring breath into it.

代わりの利く感動を 焼き増しのドラマチックを
あなたへ
あなたへ
語り得ぬさいはての奥を無理矢理繋ぎ
奪わないで 無くさないで それから

kawari no kiku kandou o yakimashi no doramachikku o
anata e
anata e
katari enu saihate no oku o muri yari tsunagi
ubawanaide nakusanaide sore kara

I’ll give replaceable passion and the photo of a dramatic scene
to you…
to you.

I attempt in vain to fill the depths of the unspoken ends.
Don’t take it away. Don’t get rid of it. After that…

どうか!
もっと嫌って 際限なんか奪って
衝動なんかもうどうなってもいい
崇める意味が溢れる前に
オリジナルの地獄に落ちて

douka!
motto kiratte saigen nanka ubatte

Please!
Hate even more and steal away the limits.
Impulses don’t matter anymore.
Before the meaning you worship overflows,
Fall into original hell.

どうか
もっと祈って 這い蹲って祈って
偶像なんか追い縋っていて
失っていろ 蹴落としていろ
作り上げた虚無に胡座をかいていろ

douka
motto inotte hai tsukubatte inotte

Please,
Pray even more. Grovel and pray!
Idol-like things are hot on your heels.
Part with them. Kick them down.
Sit cross-legged upon the nihility you constructed.

カラカラの脳味噌を絞り続けている
踊らされることをまだ自覚している

kara kara no noumiso o shibori tsudzukete iru
odorasareru koto o mada jikaku shite iru

You continue to rack your empty brain.
You’re still aware that you’re being manipulated.

安全な街の中で君が見据えているものは
あたしだ
あたしだ
吐き出し捨てていくことさえ咎められなくて
笑わないで 厭わないで 歪んで

anzen na machi no naka de kimi ga misuete iru mono wa
atashi da
atashi da
haki dashi sutete iku koto sae togamerarenakute
warawanaide itowanaide yugande

In a safe street, your eyes are fixed
on me…
on me.

You can’t even be blamed for spitting me out and throwing me away.
Don’t laugh. Don’t avoid it. Be twisted…

どうか!
もっと惑って キャッチーを奪って
救援なんかもう来なくてもいい
忘れるなんて出来ないくらい
脳髄にちゃんと擦り込んで

douka!
motto madotte kyacchii o ubatte

Please!
Be more bewildered and steal catchiness away.
It doesn’t matter if help is on its way anymore.
Rub things into your brain so much
you can’t forget about them.

どうか
もっと描いて 空想なんて拭って
盲信ばっかもう窮屈なの
油を差して 火を灯して
錆びついている言語に血を通してみて

douka
motto egaite kuusou nante nugutte

Please
draw more and rub away daydreams.
Just believing blindly in things is so uncomfortable now.
Put the oil in, light the lamp,
And let blood flow through rusty words.

明快な回答は無く
こんな歌だって陳腐なんだ
再来の審議ばっかで
まだ踊り足りないの!

meikai na kaitou wa naku
konna uta datte chinpu nanda
sairai no shingi bakka de
mada odori tarinai no!

There are no clear answers.
This song is so cliched, too.
I’m just thinking about coming back…
I haven’t danced enough yet!

どうか
もっと嫌って 際限なんか奪って
衝動なんかもうどうなってもいい
崇める意味が溢れる前に
オリジナルの地獄に落ちて

douka!

Please!
Hate even more and steal away the limits.
Your impulses don’t matter anymore.
Before the meaning you worship overflows,
Fall into original hell.

どうか
もっと描いて 後悔なんてしないで
雑音なんて消えてしまえ
浪費してる言葉で呼んで
終わりのない温度で焼き尽くして

douka
motto egaite koukai nante shinaide
zatsuon nante kiete shimae
rouhi shiteru kotoba de yonde
owari no nai ondo de yaki tsukushite

Please!
Draw even more. Don’t regret it…
All that noise should just disappear.
I call using wasted words
and burn things to nothing with an endless heat.

震わせてみてよ

furuwasete mite yo

I’ll make you tremble!

すごい偶然だよね こんな所で会うなんて
誤魔化してから気付く 頭に雪積もらせてた
別に期待してない 気まぐれな言葉とか
凍て空に手を伸ばしたら 星が掴めたりとか

sugoi guuzen da yo ne konna toko de au nante
gomakashite kara kidzuku atama ni yuki tsumoraseteta
betsu ni kitai shitenai kimagure na kotoba toka
itezora ni te wo nobashitara hoshi ga tsukametari toka

It’s such a coincidence. To think we’d meet here…
After lying to you, I realised that snow covered my head.
I don’t expect much: no whimsical words,
Or seizing the stars if I reach out to the frozen sky…

ひらりら 白い季節
ふわふわ 無口な木々
今年も 風が冷たくなる頃ね

hira rira shiroi kisetsu
fuwa fuwa mukuchi na kigi
kotoshi mo kaze ga tsumetaku naru koro ne

Lightly… This is a white season.
Softly… The trees are reticent.
The time when the wind grows cold has come again this year.

泣いてる背中に そっと触れて
あなたがかけてくれた魔法
まだ上手くないけど 私だって
使えるようになったよ

naiteru senaka ni sotto furete
anata ga kakete kureta mahou
mada umakunai kedo watashi datte
tsukaeru you ni natta yo

The magic you cast on me
touched me gently on the back as I cried…
I’m not very good yet
but even I can use it now!

恥ずかしいね あなたがとても大事にしてた
可愛い手作りの人形にまで 妬けちゃう自分が
いつも側で見てる 名前のない孤独は
ひとりでになんかやって来ない 私が招いてたんだ

hazukashii ne anata ga totemo daiji ni shiteta
kawai tezukuri no ningyou ni made yake chau jibun ga
itsumo soba de miteru namae no nai kodoku wa
hitori de ni nanka yatte konai watashi ga maneitanda

I’m so shameful. I’m even jealous of the cute doll
that you made yourself and took such good care of.
Nameless loneliness, always looking on from my side,
Doesn’t come to me automatically—I invite it.

きらりら 夢の結晶
ゆらゆら 粧した街
白い息 明日は寒くなるみたいね

kira rira yume no kesshou
yura yura mekashita machi
shiroi iki ashita wa samuku naru mitai ne

Flashing… The crystallisation of dreams.
Flickering… Decorated streets.
My breaths are white. It looks like tomorrow will get cold.

世界を染めてく心模様
あなたと 逢ってから何故かな
雪の踊る日が 特別に
感じるようになったよ

sekai wo someteku kokoro moyou
anata to atte kara naze kana
yuki no odoru hi ga tokubetsu ni
kanjiru you ni natta yo

The feelings in my heart dye the world.
It’s been this way since I met you. I wonder why…
Now, I feel special
on days when the snow dances.

私の扉は 鍵を切って
あなたが勝手に開けちゃった
独りが好きだって あなた以外
誰にも言ってないんだよ

watashi no tobira wa kagi wo kitte
anata ga katte ni akechatta
hitori ga suki datte anata igai
dare nimo itte nai nda yo

You cut the lock on my door
and opened it of your own will.
I like being alone. You’re the only exception.
I haven’t told anyone else yet!

私を私にしてくれた
あなたが一番得意だった魔法
まだ上手くないけど 私だって
使えるようになったよ

watashi wo watashi ni shite kureta
anata ga ichiban tokui datta mahou
mada umakunai kedo watashi datte
tsukaeru you ni natta yo

The magic you were the best at
made me who I am now.
I’m not very good yet
but even I can use it now!

Lily-an always writes such moving, powerful lyrics. There are some powerful images in here…


Petals danced during those radiant days.
I don’t want to forget this fleeting, faint dream.
I destroy it with trembling fingers.
Fragilely, cruelly, it loses its contours.

Who do I join hands with? Who do I laugh with?
Such warmth doesn’t suit me.

I am just me. I’m just an ugly beast.
I’ll wind up destroying your kindness, too.
No matter how much I want to hug you with my cracked arms,
I’ll just end up hurt.

Glittering snowflakes dance.
When they pile up, they colour the landscape. Such a world is so beautiful.
After all, the footprints I leave on the path I walk alone
will be erased right away.

Those unpleasant voices, cruelly whispering,
Seem to coil around me.
Though I cut them, though I shake them off, do they still scorn me?

I hate myself. I‘m still an ugly beast.
I’ll wind up destroying even your heart.
You’ll hate me…

You know, you’re beautiful. I’m repulsive.
Even if I touch you gently, I’ll destroy you.
Wanting to seal myself away, I suppress my feelings.
They fade away like snow.

I stabbed with my cold blade. I’m just an ugly beast.
I’ll wind up destroying even you, too.
A flower, blooming madly and jealously… That’s me. I’m such a coward. Ah…
Be smashed up like glass and disappear!
The jealous soul resting in my green eyes
will clamp against you, tighter and tighter,
With cracked fingers.
