東方永夜抄 ~ Imperishable Night
竹取飛翔 ~ Lunatic Princess , Flight of the Bamboo Cutter ~ Lunatic Princess, Kaguya Houraisan’s Theme

Here is the Kishida song i promised. Nothing much to say as always, except that uni is stressing me like hell and ugh, so much work in so little time  -.-
Might take me a while to answer comments or finish requests, sorry about that!

*引き寄せられる: this literally means “to be drawn to sth”, which is probably referring to the water tide/ the crashing waves but “float” (in the water) is shorter so i went with that
*夜光虫: is “yakouchuu”, meaning ~’night light bug’ and officially called noctiluca scintillans (also known as sea sparkle). even though they’re not really bugs, rather some kind of jellyfish that glow in the dark. for a more scientific explanation, please try wikipedia, i’m no expert :D this also means that they are not able to “fly”, but rather drift in the sea


求める先が たとえ暗闇だとしても
明日さえいらない 君がいてくれるなら
motomeru saki ga tatoe kurayami da to shite mo
ashita sae iranai kimi ga ite kureru nara

even if what i’m longing for is complete darkness
i don’t need a tomorrow as long as you’re here with me

夢と呼ぶには 儚いひとしずくだけれど
居場所などいらない 君がいてくれるなら

yume to yobu ni wa hakanai hitoshizuku dakeredo
ibasho nado iranai kimi ga ite kureru nara

if i were to name my dreams, they’re but fleeting droplets
i don’t need a place to belong as long as you’re here with me

転がり堕ちるせめてこの手を
放さないでと願うことも
赦されぬならせめてこの身を
砕かせないで 君の永遠で
korogari ochiru semete kono te wo
hanasanaide to negau koto mo
yurusarenu nara semete kono mi wo
kudakasenaide kimi no towa de

dropping down and falling, at least
please don’t let go of my hand
and if that’s unforgivable, then at least
please don’t let my body break within your eternity

戯れの仕草で 引き寄せられる夜光虫
永遠が欲しいと飛んで
戯れの予感で 引き寄せられる夜光虫
美しき夜空に飛んで
tawamure no shigusa de hikiyoserareru yakouchuu
eien ga hoshii to tonde
tawamure no yokan de hikiyoserareru yakouchuu
utsukushiki yozora ni tonde

with a funny gesture, the noctiluca float up and down
wishing for eternity as they fly
with a funny notion the noctiluca float up and down
drifting into the beautiful night sky

抑圧の先 それが解放だとしても
自由などいらない 君がいてくれるから
yokuatsu no saki sore ga kaihou da to shite mo
jiyuu nado iranai kimi ga ite kurerukara

if the end of oppression means i’ll be liberated
i don’t need freedom as long as you’re here with me

同じ時間を数える日々を
歪んで見てるまぶたの向こう
赦されるならどうかこの身が
朽ち果てるまで ずっと
onaji jikan wo kazoeru hibi wo
yugande miteru mabuta no mukou
yurusareru nara dou ka kono mi ga
kuchihateru made zutto

behind my eyelids, i twistedly see
the days when i counted the same hours over and over
if i can be forgiven then please
stay with me until this body decays

戯れの仕草で 引き寄せられる夜光虫
永遠が欲しいと飛んで
戯れの予感で 引き寄せられる夜光虫

また 夜がはじまる
千年 繰り返し
mata yoru ga hajimaru
sennen kurikaeshi

another night begins
and a thousand years repeat

誓う貴女に 募る想い 捧ぐ貴女に

Took a while, university is flooding me with homeworks, sorry ’bout that! I’ll probably upload two more translations before exams start in July :)
Enjoy ~

*ciranda is a brasilian circle dance, where the dancers (usually children) take each other’s hands and dance around in a circle (much like the japanese kagome)


In den Abgrund herab
Ich stürze, sehe kein Licht
Alles was ich noch hab
reicht meiner Seele doch nicht

down into the abyss
i’m falling, don’t see a glimpse of light
everything that i own
wouldn’t satisfy my soul at all

In dem Schatten der Zeit
Ich lache, weine doch mein Schrei bricht
Doch bald bin ich bereit
Ich zeig mein eigenes Ich, denn

within the shadows of time
i laugh, i cry, but my screams become silent
but soon i will be ready
i’ll show my true self because

Bald ist es vorbei, ich steh wieder auf
Doch noch lachen sie
Nehm all meine Kraft, denn jetzt will ich stärker sein!

soon it’s all over, i’ll pick myself up again
even if they’re still laughing
i gather all my strength because now i want to become stronger!

Und sie tanzen mit mir Kreis,
lachen lauter um meinen Schrei,
doch ich weiß…
Gelächter wird ihnen schon bald vergehn!
Ihren Tanz den brech ich
mit ‘nem Lachen auf dem Gesicht
denn ich weiß…
Diesen Ciranda übernehme schließlich ich!

and they’re dancing in circles with me
laughing at my screams
but i know…
that soon their laughter will cease!
I’ll break off their dance
with a smile on my face
because i know…
I’m the one who will take over this ciranda!

Breche auf in den Kampf,
den mein Schatten immer gewann,
doch es reicht…
Denn auch sein Lächeln wird als letztes gehn!
Zieh mein Schwert aus dem Herz,
das mir jede Hoffnung verwehrt
Ja, es reicht! Ich bin bereit!

i’ll set off for the battle
that my shadow has always won
but it’ s enough now…
because even its smile will fade last of all
pull my sword out of the heart
that denied me all hope
yes, it’s enough! i’m ready!

Steig die Treppen hinab
Die Welt über mir, sie bricht nieder
Doch es nimmt seinen Lauf
Zurückgehn werde ich nie wieder

i descend the stairs
while the world above me is crumbling
but everything takes its course
and i will never go back again

Sooo this is the first time i translated a german song into english, i hope i didn’t mess it up completely … I’m open for complaints from fellow german translators! :)
If the composer want this to be taken down, i will do so of course.

* Träume sehen mein Herz in der Einsamkeit: slighty ambiguous word order, but i think i got this right


Träume sehen mein Herz in der Einsamkeit
Wo bist du hin? Ich suche nur nach einer Spur

my heart is dreaming in this loneliness
where did you go? I’m only looking for a trace

Bücher zeigen das Bild dieses Wunderlands
Was ist geschehn? Ich sehne mich nach deinem Licht

books show me the picture of this wonderland
what happened? I’m longing for your light

Wohin soll ich gehn?
Und was wünsch ich mir?
Wo ist der Weg hin, hin zu dir?
Nur der eine Pfad ohne Wiederkehr
Doch ich suche noch weiter, für dich

where should i go?
what am i yearning for?
where is the trail that will lead me to you?
a path with no return is all there is
but i keep searching, for your sake

Tage, Wochen und Jahre gehn mit der Zeit
War es denn das, hast du das so immer gewollt?

Days, weeks and years elapse
is that it? Is that what you always wanted?

Lächle, doch bricht mein Herz an der Einsamkeit
Ich wollt es auch, doch war dieser Weg doch nur dein

smiling, and yet this loneliness breaks down my heart
i wanted it too, but this path was yours alone

Was soll ich jetzt tun?
Wonach suche ich?
Denn kein Buch dieser Welt führt zurück zu dir
Und ich frage mich, siehst dus’ auch wie ich?
Ich sing mein Lied nur für dich…

what should i do now?
what am i searching for?
in this world there is no book that could ever lead me back to you
and i ask myself,  ‘do you think the same?’
i’m singing my song for you only

Ich schau auf zu dir
Suchst du auch nach mir?
Ich warte für alle Zeit

i look up to you
are you looking for me too?
i’ll wait for all eternity

Haven’t posted anything lately, i know, i apologize about that.
But the good news is i passed my university exams. Yay me! Anyways, enjoy this Syrufit song, i’ll try to work on another translation next week ^-^

*想い: actually “omoi” is “memories”, but i just thought that “emotions” would fit better
*凛々しく: i had to look this up in my dictionary but i only got 凛々(“rinrin”), however i think Mei sings “rinshiku”, not “rinrinshiku”
*あの郷: this is supposed to be read as “gou” or “kyo” (lit. ‘homeland, place of birth’, i shortened it to ‘place’), if i’m not mistaken it’s sung as(“kuni” – homeland) though
*何処: written as “izuko”


雲ひとつない星空 想い馳せる
いつかの小さな手は この手を離れ
今宵は月が綺麗で 想い過る
もし他の運命を 選んだのな
kumo hitotsu nai hoshizora omoi haseru
itsuka no chiisana te wa kono te wo hanare
koyoi wa tsuki ga kirei de omoi yogiru
moshi hoka no unmei wo eranda no nara

Under this cloudless starry sky, my emotions race
the small hand from back then let go of mine
it crosses my mind that the moon is truly pretty tonight
oh perhaps, if only i had chosen another fate…

止まる時間 止まらない四季
また 巡る
戻れないなら 道の続く限りに
歩みを止めない 祈りを止めな
tomaru jikan tomaranai shiki
mata meguru
modorenai nara michi no tsudzuku kagiri ni
ayumi wo tomenai inori wo yamenai

time stands still but the seasons are unstoppable
they’ll recur again
if i can’t go back, as long as my path continues
i won’t stop walking, i won’t stop praying

貴女を導く
柔らかく照らす光に
なれるのだろうか
今は 過去
全てを受け入れ
凛々しく振り返るあなた
笑顔でいて いつまでも
いつまでも
anata wo michibiku
yawarakaku terasu hikari ni
nareru no darou ka
ima wa kako
subete wo ukeire
rinshiku furikaeru anata
egao de ite itsumade mo
itsumade mo

you are guided
by a faintly shining light
you’ll surely get used to it
that is past now
I will accept everything
you courageously turn back
please just keep on smiling forever
for evermore

儚く浮かぶあの郷 想い馳せる
遠く手を伸ばしても 離れるばかり
この火は消えることなく 想い過る
幸せに思う罪 噛み締めながら
hakanaku ukabu ano kuni omoi haseru
tooku te wo nobashite mo hanareru bakari
kono hi wa kieru koto naku omoi yogiru
shiawase ni omou tsumi kamishime nagara

fleeting transiently, that place makes my emotions race
no matter how far i extend my hand, you would only let go
it crosses my thoughts that this day won’t ever fade
while thinking of happiness, i deliberate about my sins

連れぬ未来 貫くこの身
また 何処
伸びていくのは 永遠の帰り道
歩みを止めない 祈りを止めない
tsurenu mirai tsuranuku kono mi
mata izuko
nobite iku no wa eien no kaerimichi

the future that i hold pierces my body
and yet somewhere
my eternal way home stretches in front of me
i won’t stop walking, i won’t stop praying

貴女を導く柔らかく

なれるのだろうか
今は 過去
あの花のように
優しく咲き誇るあなた

you are guided
by a faintly shining light
you’ll surely get used to it
that is past now
just like that flower
you will bloom so beautifully
unchanging, just like that

I didn’t know this song before, but so far i really like it! although i am not sure whether i understand its meaning…
Please note that the stanzas connect to each other.

*その名前を呼んでくれよ: actually “scream out that name (for me)”. Doesn’t sound good in my opinion.
*輝いてた気がしてた: “it had been shining” -> i don’t know what “it” refers to in this case, maybe some undefined object sparkling in the dark?
* 気づけば: “if you noticed”-> i think it refers to the shining (see above)
*地べた這いつくばって: also “i crawl on my knees”, “i sink to the ground”
*日は暮れてしまう: means that the day will soon be over, so it’s too late for the speaker to start again
*過去に置いていくよ: “leave it in the past”

I fixed some minor mistakes in the kanji lyrics. However, thanks for writing them down.

*最後に見せた笑顔  もう会えないの: to keep the translated phrases short i had to leave out a few words (which were not written in the lyrics, but they might be important for understanding). Basically it goes like “the smile you showed me in the end, (does it mean) we can’t meet anymore?”
*繰り返す: lit. “repeat”, this refers to the stanza above it
*Scarlet sky あの空の果て: it hurts my heart that i have to repeat the word “sky” in this phrase.
*
救われていた: lit. “i have been saved”
*
気づいた言葉: “those words” -> “we cannot meet again?”
* Left out the last refrain because too long.

kono mama tada nagarete itai

so i let go of everything
i just want to be swept away like this

嘘見たいな答えが
目の前に降り積り
uso mitai na kotae ga
me no mae ni furitsumori

the answers that look like lies
pile up right in front of me

夢も見れないままで
ただ眠ってた
yume mo mirenai mama de
tada nemutteta

and i cannot even dream anymore
i just sleep

波間を揺らした 光に
奪われていた
namima wo yurashita hikari ni
ubawareteita

the light swaying between the waves
has been taken from me

何度も何度も 強く手を伸ばした
nando mo nando mo tsuyoku te wo nobashita

over and over again i strongly reached out my hand

Scarlet sky あの空を越え
君を求めて
Scarlet sky ano sora wo koe
kimi wo motomete

scarlet sky, i cut across that sky
longing for you

声を枯らし叫んだ
もう行かないで
koe wo karashi sakenda
mou ikanaide

i scream at the top of my lungs
‘don’t go anymore‘

遠く消えてそれでも
また繰り返す
tooku kiete sore demo
mata kurikaesu

far away, it disappears, but
it will echo again

何もないこの海で
生きていくの
nani mo nai kono umi de
ikiteiku no

with nothing but this ocean
i’ll keep living

何もかも夢にして
出逢う前に戻れるなら
nani mo kamo yume ni shite
deau mae ni modoreru nara

i can do everything in my dream
if i can go back before we meet

一人きりこの場所で
すべてを失っても
hitorikiri kono basho de
subete ushinatte mo

I’m all alone in this place
even if i lose everything

面影たぐり寄せて
歩き出すから
Omokage taguri yosete
aruki dasu kara

as your vestige hauls me off
i start to walk again

(…Refrain 1)
