Original ★ ラクトガール ~ 少女密室 / Locked Girl ~ The Girl’s Secret Room ★ ヴワル魔法図書館 / Voile, the Magic Library

I finally got around to finishing the other vocal track from Scarlet furor. You know, the album I bought for the sole purpose of translating the song “Scarlet furor.” Anyway, I sat on this for months because I said “fuck it” over two lines. I then proceeded to get them done under 10 minutes. Thanks, past me. Also, yes, I’ve been doing fuck all for the past few months. Whoops! Ahaha.       Ha.

As usual, furigana is put in parentheses ’cause I hate wordpress. No TL notes, other than No, “shunt” is not a typo. It’s written like that in the booklet. (Oh, and I am literally too exhausted to explain why I wrote “rots the outsider” instead of whatever the fuck else but trust me when I say I thought about it for longer than I should have and I have a multitude of reasons and it makes sense please understand. please. thank you)

(Vocaloid) TeddyLoid feat. galaco – Brain – English Lyrics Translation

Title ★ Brain
Artist ★ TeddyLoid
Lyrics ★ TeddyLoid
Vocals ★ ギャラ子 / galaco
Album ★ galaco SUPER BEST
Record Label ★ Stardust Records
Release Date ★ December 18th, 2013

god i wish i didnt have to do this

Not Touhou, this time! Sorry!

But guess which bastard bought another album just to translate 1 (one) song? Actually, it was a Christmas gift. I used up a Christmas gift for an album just to translate one song on it. An album from 4 years ago. Why wasn’t this even translated? It’s TeddyLoid. Why wouldn’t people translate TeddyLoid. Is it cause it’s galaco? She’s not even bad. What the fuck? I don’t know. Actually, I don’t even like galaco. I don’t even want this album. I just needed to translate this song. What the fuck. I hate my life. Fuck this.

Anyway. As per usual, there were a few liberties taken. Don’t yell at me. At this point, I even don’t care.  I’m just tryin’ my best to not lose subtext in translation. Pulling my hair out in the process, too. Please. Spare me.

But, enough. WordPress doesn’t have furigana, so again, furigana is put in parentheses.

There are no further TL’s notes. Please enjoy.

(C80)(東方) ALiCE’S EMOTION – 君想フ故ニ我亡シ – English Lyrics Translation

Title ★ 君想フ故ニ我亡シ / i am notHING whEN i thiNK of you
Artist ★ t+pazolite
Lyrics ★ t+pazolite
Vocals ★ リズナ / Rizna
Circle ★ ALiCE’S EMOTION
Album ★ RADIATA
Event ★ C80

Original ★ 神さびた古戦場 ~ Suwa Foughten Field / The Venerable Ancient Battlefield ~ Suwa Foughten Field

I highly suggest reading up on your Kanako and Suwako lore for this song. It’s clearly sung from Suwako’s point of view despite being to Kanako’s theme and it pisses me off ’cause every upload on youtube uses a picture of Kanako. Fuckl you.

Anyway, the hardest part of this translation was the title. Fuck that. But I had a fun time translating this song. The lyrics are very nice. I hope I was able to capture them well. tHat’s all I have to say thanks

As usual, all furigana is placed in parentheses because wordpress sucks. No further TL’s notes.

OH, AND BY THE WAY, THE SONG JUST COMPLETELY CUTTING OFF IS PART OF THE SONG. NOT THE UPLOAD. I HATE IT

(C85)(東方) ALiCE’S EMOTION – Resonance to heavens – English Lyrics Translation

Title ★ Resonance to heavens
Artist ★ 源屋 / Minamotoya
Lyrics ★ 源屋 / Minamotoya
Vocals ★ Kuroa*
Circle ★ ALiCE’S EMOTION
Album ★ STILL LOVE
Event ★ C85

Original ★ 夢殿大祀廟 / Dream Palace of the Great Mausoleum

I took a few (quite a few (a little more than a few)) liberties for some lines, but nothing too major, so it shouldn’t be a problem.

It was both a blessing and a curse that pretty much all the verses are just super long compound sentences; it was easier to get them done as a whole, but caused for some challenges with getting them to fit the lines properly, as well as having to pretty much “invert” the order of every single line.

Nonetheless, I’m happy with how it turned out, so I hope you all enjoy this song as much as I enjoyed translating it! (I can’t tell if it’s a happy song or a sad song…)

One final note: WordPress does not allow furigana, so any kana in parentheses you see is meant to be furigana.

Please give me some sort of medal for getting this translation to fit the syllables. I tried so hard. I tried so, so hard.

I don’t have any TL’s notes other than I am dead inside but that is entirely irrelevant to this translation. No, scratch that. It is relevant to this translation because this song made me feel more dead inside than I already was. Anyway.

Does this circle even exist anymore? I don’t even think this circle exists anymore. If you ever manage to stumble upon this, please enjoy. This song made me feel dead inside.
