遥か遠くの 青い空を目掛けて疾るよ
どんな時も笑い合える 君に逢うため

haruka tooku no aoi sora wo megakete hashiru yo
donna toki mo warai aeru kimi ni au tame

I aim somewhere far away in the blue sky and race off
So I can meet you again. We could smile at each other whenever…

通り雨にずぶ濡れた帰り道
雨宿り 水溜りぬかるんでる
たとえ辛い事が起きた後でも
一足飛びで 飛び越えて前を向こう

tooriame ni zubunureta kaerimichi
amayadori mizutamari nukarunderu
tatoe tsurai koto ga okita ato demo
issokutobi de tobikoete mae wo mukou

The way back home was drenched by a passing shower.
I took shelter from the rain, slushing through the puddles.
Even after something painful has happened,
I’ll jump over it with a single bound and face forwards!

抜けるような空色も のしかかる鈍色も
眩しい茜色も 君と僕手を繋ぎ眺めていたい

nukeru you na sorairo mo noshikakaru nibiiro mo
mabushii akaneiro mo kimi to boku te wo tsunagi nagamete itai

Whether the sky is a clear blue, a gloomy grey,
Or the brilliant colour of sunset… I want to look up at it, holding hands with you.

大空翔る 鳥のように自由な心で
進んでくよ 青き彼方 僕の翼で
遥か遠くに 見える虹を目指して疾るよ
風を超えて雲を越えて 君と一緒に さあ

oozora kakeru tori no you ni jiyuu na kokoro de
susundeku yo aoki kanata boku no tsubasa de
haruka tooku ni mieru niji wo mezashite hashiru yo
kaze wo koete kumo wo koete kimi to issho ni saa

I fly through the sky with a heart free like a bird.
I’m gonna keep going, heading into the blue distance on my own wings.
I’m gonna race off to the rainbow I can see in the distance.
I’ll surpass the wind and pass over the clouds, together with you. Come!

夜の灯り星屑が照らし出す
箒星 瞬いてすぐに消えた
たとえ君が闇に立ち尽くしても
恐れないで 僕が手を引いてくから

yoru no akari hoshikuzu ga terashidasu
houkiboshi matataite sugu ni kieta
tatoe kimi ga yami ni tachitsukushitemo
osorenaide boku ga te wo hiiteku kara

Stardust lit up the night.
Comets twinkled, then disappeared.
Even if you’re standing still in the darkness,
Don’t worry! I’ll lead you along.

輝ける一等星も 煌めいてる星座も
くすんだ六等星も 全力で手を広げ掴んでみたい
君と

kagayakeru ittousei mo kirameiteru seiza mo
kusunda rokutousei mo zenryoku de te wo hiroge tsukande mitai

Shining first-magnitude stars, sparkling constellations,
And dull sixth-magnitude stars… I’ll stretch my hands out and grab at them with all my might!
With you…

大空翔る 鳥のように自由な心で
進んでくよ 青き彼方 僕の翼で
遥か遠くに 見える虹を目指して疾るよ
風を超えて雲を越えて 君と一緒に

今日が終わっても 明日は再びやってくるから
空を仰ぎ待っているよ 昇る朝日を

Even if today comes to an end, tomorrow will come along once more
So I’ll look up at the sky and wait for the sun to rise.
I aim somewhere far away in the blue sky and race off
So I can meet you again. We could smile at each other whenever…

Original Theme: Cinderella Cage ~ Kagome-Kagome [シンデレラケージ ~ Kagome-Kagome]

Requested by: Marisa~Nya

It’s awesome when arrangements of Kagome-Kagome quote the original song! This one adds a few sections in. I interpreted them as referring to the speaker, but they could also refer to the bird in its cage (which could also be a metaphor for the speaker). It’s complicated…

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

吹き荒ぶ 終末の空風
皹に傷んだ掌
聞こえてきたのは 誰の足音
嘲るように 反響するいつかの唄

fukisusabu shuumatsu no karakaze
akagire ni kizunda tenohira
kikoete kita no wa dare no ashioto
azakeru you ni hankyou suru itsuka no uta

The dry wind of the end blows fiercely.
The cracks in my palms hurt.
I heard someone’s footsteps
And that song of someday echoed, as if mocking me.

―かごめかごめ かごのなかのとりは―
羽をもがれて 落ちていくだけ
―よあけのばんに つるとかめがすべった―
心砕けて 膝を付くだけ

-kagome kagome kago no naka no tori wa-
hane wo mogarete ochite iku dake
-yoake no ban ni tsuru to kame ga subetta-
kokoro kudakete hiza wo tsuku dake

—Kagome kagome, the bird in its cage—
I pluck my feathers, and they begin to fall.
—In the night of dawn, the crane and turtle slipped—
My heart crumbles, and I fall to my knees.

見上げた明日は 儚くとも
見下ろす今日は 虚しくとも
足を止めては 生きられない
愚かで醜い生き物と

miageta asu wa hakanaku to mo
miorosu kyou wa munashiku to mo
ashi wo tomete wa ikirarenai
oroka de minikui ikimono to

Though tomorrow, which I gazed up at, is transient,
Though today, which I look down upon, is in vain,
I cannot live if I stop moving,
Together with those foolish, ugly animals.

暮れていく 終末の夕焼け
燃えるように 消えてく幻想
閉ざしていくだけ 誰の希望も
叶わずに 反響するいつかの唄

kurete iku shuumatsu no yuuyake
moeru you ni kieteku gensou
tozashite iku dake dare no kibou mo
kanawazu ni hankyou suru itsuka no uta

The sunset of the end begins to fall.
The illusion begins to fade, as if burning away.
Someone’s hope just begins to be plunged into grief, too.
That song of someday echoed, unheard…

―かごめかごめ かごのなかのとりは―
喉を枯らして 口紡ぐだけ
―よあけのばんに つるとかめがすべった―
行き場なくして 眼を閉じるだけ

-kagome kagome kago no naka no tori wa-
nodo wo karashite kuchi tsumugu dake
-yoake no ban ni tsuru to kame ga subetta-
ikiba nakushite me wo tojiru dake

—Kagome kagome, the bird in its cage—
I let my throat dry, holding my tongue.
—In the night of dawn, the crane and turtle slipped—
Losing my destination, I just shut my eyes.

見上げた明日は 儚くとも
見下ろす今日は 虚しくとも
足を止めては 生きられない
愚かで愛しい僕らは

Though tomorrow, which we gazed up at, is transient,
Though today, which we look down upon, is in vain,
We cannot live if we stop moving –
We, the foolish, the beloved.

静かな部屋で コトバも無く
緩やかな時を君と 過ごしていたい

shizuka na heya de kotoba mo naku
yuruyaka na toki wo kimi to sugoshite itai

I want to spend the time slowly with you
In this silent room, without words.

いつから互いの心は丸まった?
突き刺す言葉は 先端削らせて
意味も無くからかう冗談がわずかに
減ったのは毒舌な君には 残念

itsu kara tagai no kokoro wa marumatta?
tsukisasu kotoba wa sentan kezurasete
imi mo naku karakau joudan ga wazuka ni
hetta no wa dokuzetsu na kimi ni wa zannen

When did our hearts become one?
The words thrust, whittling away a pointed tip.
Gradually, I began to aim less meaningless jokes at you –
You, with your wicked tongue. How unfortunate.

じゃれ合うコトバ 無意識から
二人は繋がってたい 裏付けをした

jareau kotoba muishiki kara
futari wa tsunagattetai uradzuke wo shita

The words frolic from my unconsciousness.
I took it as proof that we wanted to be together.

イタズラな愛 いじめ合うよ
丸まったトゲで撫でて 確かめ合おう

itazura na ai ijimeau yo
marumatta toge de nadete tashikameaou

Our love is mischievous. We just tease each other!
Let’s stroke each other with balled-up thorns and make sure of each other…

イラつく仕草も あばたもえくぼで
燻る気持ちも 解決出来そう
強がりも まるで隠せない
二人でひとつだね
ちっとも恥ずかしくないから

iratsuku shigusa mo abata mo ekubo de
kusuburu kimochi mo kaiketsu dekisou
tsuyogari mo maru de kakusenai
futari de hitotsu da ne
chittomo hazukashikunai kara

In love, I am blind to your annoying behaviours, too.
It looks like I’ll be able to settle my smouldering feelings as well…
I can’t hide my bluff completely.
Together, we are one
Because it isn’t embarrassing at all.

手と手で味わう 静かな退屈
握った温もり 嬉しい退屈
後悔が無いと言い切れる退屈
優しくて自慢の満たされた退屈

te to te de ajiwau shizuka na taikutsu
nigitta nukumori ureshii taikutsu
koukai ga nai to iikireru taikutsu
yasashikute jiman no mitasareta taikutsu

Hand in hand, we savour it. Silent boredom.
We held warmth in our hands. Pleasant boredom.
Boredom, declaring that it has no regrets.
Tender boredom satisfied my pride.

Requested by: Marisa~Nya

The ‘dead man’ is Yoshika. Let’s just ignore the fact that she’s actually a woman… >_> There’s one part in there where きみたち [‘kimitachi’ – ‘you (plural)] is written, but Ranko sings the singular form instead. I noted it down in brackets rather than in a translation note since she sings it as it’s written later on.

I don’t know if I mentioned this anywhere, but Butaotome has an official Youtube channel now! Make sure you subscribe to it!

So somehow I managed to not get around to this for almost 2 months. Whoops >_< Anyway, the lyrics are cute. I wonder who Kogasa’s walking with…?

水たまりを蹴り上げて ふと

My umbrella stops the rain
As it spills from the cloudy sky.
Without thinking, I smile.
Suddenly, I kick up a puddle.

振り向き 駆け寄り
手を取り 君が言う
「明日も雨ならいいよね」
楽しげなその笑顔に 心奪われてく

I look over my shoulder and race to you.
I take your hand, and you say:
“I’ll be good if it rains tomorrow, too.”
My heart was snatched away by your cheerful smile.

傘に弾けた雫が

We walked together,
Following the rhythm of the raindrops
Beating against my umbrella.
“I want it to rain again tomorrow…”
Whilst playing around,
I tried to pray to the sky.
It was that sort of umbrella weather forecast.

晴れた空から そそいだ

My umbrella stops the sunlight
As it pours from the clear sky.
Without thinking, I smile.
I look down on the frogs by the road.
I look over my shoulder, and race to you.
I pick one of them up, and you say:
“You like the rain as well, don’t you?”
I was surprised by your childish words.

That’s one long title! It sounds like the title of a light novel that’s been popular lately… Anyway, I translated this believing that the speaker is Nazrin – she seems to be talking about her lazy master for the most part [who may or may not be Shou]. It’s light on pronouns, but some parts didn’t seem to fit Nazrin, which led me to my interpretation.

You’re somewhat unreliable, and you’re idle every day.
Still, I won’t give up!
My heart yearned for you as you walked away.
You live without wavering!
It’s unique,
And that shooting star innocently races off!

Requested by: Maki

This was my first Liz Triangle album, so it’s really nostalgic for me :’)

_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

I think that the way I live my life
And the way you live your life are similar,
So is it okay for me to ask you about it?
Basically, I believe that though my reason for living
And your reason for being here have not been arbitrarily decided,
This is what they call ‘fate.’

Look – the wind blows.
Now, even in this world,
I preach almost everything and bewilder others.
You are crying – only I am with you,
Softly speaking at your side…

This world, full of nothing but trouble,
Snatches your vision away…
I am certain that there are times
When you tilt your head to the side in confusion, right?
Come!

Though the path you will follow from here stretches onward,
If somebody were to direct you down a back lane, saying “here, by all means…”
Would you not be a bit uneasy?
The place I am in, and the place you must travel through…
Surely there are no misunderstandings between them!
Yes, this is fate.
Now, I shall go to sleep right away.
When I wake up,
Let us speak once more.

In this world of misunderstandings, bloom! O, flower coloured the same as myself.
Bloom, because you will show that perceptive smile, always.

Yes, I shall astonish you with wicked words.
Yes, I shall delight you with blessings.
Someday, the words that stand before you shall stand against you.
Everything, everything, has already been decided.

La! Spin, spin, spin, spin!
I shall smile, whilst spinning here and there.
La! The path I moved forwards on was the path backwards…
Sometimes, I feel like I have mistaken them.
I think that my reason for being here
And the reason why you came here are similar.
This is my fate from here:
The life I have chosen, and the life you progress through…

夢現 || Half-Awake and Half-Asleep

Half-Awake and Half-Asleep

Vocals: ichigo
Arranged by: Liq
Lyrics: TAKEGON
Album: Crazy Berry (くるいちご)
Circle: Crazy Berry
Event: C81
Original Theme: Sakura Sakura ~ Japanize Dream… [さくらさくら ~ Japanize Dream…]

Requested by: That DoujinGoro

So, if Rainbow Palette [虹色パレット] was created to showcase Ranko, this album was created to showcase ichigo – basically, a bunch of arrangers got together and decided to write songs for her to sing.

Interestingly enough, the title of the album (くるいちご – ‘kuruichigo’) is a portmanteau of the words 狂い (‘kurui’ – crazy) and いちご (‘ichigo’ – strawberry). Based on this, it can be seen that the album title is actually the same as the circle’s name, minus the ‘straw’ of strawberry. And, since the main vocalist is ichigo… I’m sure lots of people figured it out already, but I just worked it out, and I thought it was really clever… >_>

この先には 何が待ってる
傷つくことが怖くて…
雪降る 冬を終わらせて
お願いだから 早く…
この距離では 離れすぎてて
時には声を聴かせて
夢では すぐに会えるのに
今日も独り 眠る…

kono saki ni wa nani ga matteru
kizutsuku koto ga kowakute…
yuki furu fuyu wo owarasete
o-negai dakara hayaku…
kono kyori de wa hanare sugitete
toki ni wa koe wo kikasete
yume de wa sugu ni aeru no ni
kyou mo hitori nemuru…

Beyond this point, something is waiting.
I’m afraid of being wounded…
The snow falls. Please, make this winter end!
I’m begging you! Hurry…
At this distance, we’re too far apart.
Sometimes, though, you let me hear your voice.
In dreams, I can see you instantly.
In spite of this, I am alone today as well. I sleep…

真夏の日差しの知利知利が
二人を繋ぐ 季節は
何時の間にやら 過ぎて消え去った
段々と 崩れてく月の雫が ほら
足元に吸い込まれて行った

manatsu no hizashi no chirichiri ga
futari wo tsunagu kisetsu wa
itsu no ma ni yara sugite kiesatta
dandan to kuzureteku tsuki no shizuku ga hora
ashimoto ni suikomarete itta

Bits and pieces of the rays of the midsummer sun
Tie us together. The seasons,
Before you know it, have passed by and vanished.
Gradually, a drop from the crumbling moon – look! –
Was soaked up at my feet.

何処からか舞い落ちた花びら
桜色 ひらひらと漂ふ
ふわふわと揺れている 想いの欠片が
きらきらと 輝いている小雪に
ひらひらと ひらひらと漂ふ
ふと…手を伸ばして

doko kara ka maiochita hanabira
sakurairo hirahira to tadayou
fuwafuwa to yureteiru omoi no kakera ga
kirakira to kagayaiteiru koyuki ni
hirahira to hirahira to tadayou
futo… te wo nobashite

Petals, which floated down from somewhere.
They are the colour of cherry blossoms. They drift flutteringly …
The fragments of my thoughts, which lightly sway
Upon the glittering, sparkling light snow,
Drift flutteringly.
Suddenly… I reach out my hand.

この先には 何が待ってる
傷つくことが怖くて…
雪降る 冬を終わらせて
お願いだから 早く…
この距離では 離れすぎてて
時には声を聴かせて
夢では すぐに会えるのに
今日も独り 眠る…

kono saki ni wa nani ga matteru

yuki furu fuyu wo owarasete
o-negai dakara hayaku…

toki ni wa koe wo kikasete

Beyond this point, something is waiting.
I’m afraid of being wounded…
The snow falls. Please, make this winter end!
I’m begging you! Hurry…
At this distance, we’re too far apart.
Sometimes, though, you let me hear your voice.
In dreams, I can see you instantly.

水面の鏡に揺らめいた
二つの影が 今でも
胸に焼きついているのが痛くて
段々と 広がっていく波紋が全て
曖昧にしていく 次第にと…

minamo no kagami ni yurameita
futatsu no kage ga ima demo
mune ni yakitsuiteiru no ga itakute
dandan to hirogatteiku hamon ga subete
aimai ni shiteiku jidai ni to…

Upon the mirror of the water’s surface
Swayed two silhouettes. Even now,
They are seared into my chest, which is painful,
And gradually, I make the ripples that spread out
All become vague, in turn…

秋が過ぎ 白銀の世界に
包まれて 薄れてく記憶
温もりに抱かれて 想ひ出の海に
ちらちらと 閉じている瞼に
浮かんでるその姿追いかけ
ふと…手を伸ばして

aki ga sugi hakugin no sekai ni
tsutsumarete usureteku kioku
nukumori ni idakarete omoide no umi ni
chirachira to tojiteiru mabuta ni
ukanderu sono sugata oikake
futo… te wo nobashite

Autumn passes in this silver world,
And I am wrapped up in my fading remembrances.
In the sea of my memories, I am embraced by warmth.
I pursue the figure suspended
Within my lightly closed eyelids.
Suddenly… I reach out my hand.

この先には 何が待ってる
信じる事が怖くて…
風吹く 春に身を焦がし
移ろえ 季節よ早く…
想うほどに 心苦しく
時には堪え切れなくて
あなたの声に導かれ
今日も独り 眠る…

kono saki ni wa nani ga matteru
shinjiru koto ga kowakute
kaze fuku haru ni mi wo kogashi
utsuroe toki yo hayaku…
omou hodo ni kokorogurushiku
toki ni wa korae kirenakute
anata no koe ni michibikare
kyou mo hitori nemuru…

Beyond this point, something is waiting.
I’m afraid of believing …
The wind blows. I am consumed in passion for the spring.
Change, o seasons! Hurry…
It is as painful as I thought.
Sometimes, though, I can no longer bear it,
And I am guided by your voice.
I am alone today as well. I sleep…

この先には 何が待ってる
傷つくことが怖くて…
雪降る 冬を終わらせて
お願いだから 早く…
この距離では 離れすぎてて
時には声を聴かせて
夢では すぐに会えるのに
今日も独り 眠る…

kono saki ni wa nani ga matteru
kizutsuku koto ga kowakute…
yuki furu fuyu wo owarasete
o-negai dakara hayaku…
kono kyori de wa hanare sugitete
toki ni wa koe wo kikasete
yume de wa sugu ni aeru no ni
kyou mo hitori nemuru…

Beyond this point, something is waiting.
I’m afraid of being wounded…
The snow falls. Please, make this winter end!
I’m begging you! Hurry…
At this distance, we’re too far apart.

現世に未練を残し 去ってゆくのはつまらないから

utsushiyo ni miren wo nokoshi satteyuku no wa tsumaranai kara

Leaving behind regrets in the present world and leaving is boring, so…

短い余生に怯えつつ 逃げ惑うよりも
恐れを死を越え永久に 愉しんだ方が正解

mijikai yosei ni obietsutsu nigemadou yori mo
osore wo shi wo koe tokoshie ni tanoshinda hou ga seikai

Rather than running about fearing my limited lifespan,
The correct path lies in rejoicing in crossing over fear – over death – and achieving immortality.

ひらひらり舞う花弁のよう ウラオモテに
くるくるかわる回る返る分かつ
刮目せよその力艶やかに 広がる景色は摩訶不思議

hirahirari mau hanabira no you uraomote ni
kurukuru kawaru mawaru kaeru wakatsu
katsumoku seyo sono chikara adeyaka ni hirogaru keshiki wa makafushigi

Like the flower petals that flutter and dance,
I whirl, change, spin around, return, and divide on both sides.
Pay attention to this glamorous power! The spread-out landscape is mysterious…

現世で存在が消え 無くなってくのはつまらないから

utsushiyo de sonzai ga kie nakunatteku no wa tsumaranai kara

Having one’s existence erased from the present world and dying is boring, so…

つまらぬ不安に嘆きつつ 気を落とすよりも
弱きを無を越え永久に 笑っているのが正解

tsumaranu fuan ni nagekitsutsu ki wo otosu yori mo
yowaki wo mu wo koe tonishie ni waratteiru no ga seikai

Rather than being discouraged whilst lamenting dull insecurities,
The correct path lies in smiling after crossing over weakness – over nothingness – and achieving immortality.

シャラランと鳴る銀鈴のよう ケンランたる
きらきらまたたく輝く羽ばたく
実感せよその力麗しく 定まる視界は摩訶不思議

shararan to naru ginsuzu no you kenran taru
kira kira matataku kagayaku habataku
jikkan seyo sono chikara uruwashiku sadamaru shikai wa makafushigi

A brilliance worthy of the ringing of that silver bell.
I flap my sparkling, twinkling, shining wings.
Feel this beautiful power! My field of vision, as it settles, is mysterious.

現世に未練を残し 去ってゆくのはつまらないよね?

utsushiyo ni miren wo nokoshi satteyuku no wa tsumaranai yo ne?

Leaving behind regrets in the present world and leaving is boring, isn’t it?

ひらひらり舞う花弁(はなびら)のよう ウラオモテに
くるくるかわる回る返る分かつ
刮目せよその力艶やかに 広がる景色は摩訶不思議

hirahirari mau hanabira no you uraomote ni
kurukuru kawaru mawaru kaeru wakatsu
katsumoku seyo sono chikara adeyaka ni hirogaru keshiki wa makafushigi

Like the flower petals that flutter and dance,
I whirl, change, spin around, return, and divide on both sides.
Pay attention to this glamorous power! The spread-out landscape is mysterious…
