Kami Anison – Godly Awesome Animation Songs – Part 4 – The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya

The TV animation “The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya” is based on the Light Novel (a category of Japanese subculture novels) written by Nagaru Tanigawa.

Not only the song, but also the story, I think is very attractive. It is about daily life, but with a little bit of Sci-Fi. It’s the story of a girl, Haruhi Suzumiya, and her friends at high school. Its episodes are not in chronological order, so you don’t know everything until you finish the last one.

There is no doubt in mind that you will be caught up in Haruhi’s world as soon as you see it.

Here are both the Japanese and English lyrics and versions of the song.

Japanese:
Boken Desho Desho?
Kotae wa itsumo watashi no mune ni…
Nande daro Anata wo eranda watashi desu
Mou tomaranai Unmei sama kara kimerareta keredo

I believe Manedake ja tsumaranai no


You’ll be right!
Kanjiru mama kanjiru koto dake wo suruyo
Boken desho desho? Honto ga uso ni kawaru sekae de
Yume ga arukara tsuyoku narunoyo Dare no tame ja nai


Issho ni kite kudasai


Dokomademo jiyu na watashi wo mite yone


Ashita kako ni natta kyou no ima ga Kiseki


I believe you…

English:

It’s an Adventure, right? Right?

I’ll always keep the answer safe right here inside my heart…
I don’t understand why is it that I run to you when I have a problem
Could it be that
I can’t help it because it’s been chosen by my destiny
I believe
Acting like everyone else is boring
You’ll be right!
If just can stay true to myself I know I can do Anything

Life is an adventure
Don’t hesitate and take all of your fears and just throw them away
Keep getting stronger follow through with your dreams and not just for anyone else’s sake
Please take my hand we’ll fly away
I won’t let you fall believe in me
If we can survive through the day
I’ll prove to you that there’s really no need for such things as miracles…

Keep reaching towards
A new future
I believe you…

Kami Anison – Godly Awesome Animation Songs – Part 3 – The Neon Genesis Evangelion

It already may be too famous to talk about now, but my third recommendation is a song from “The Neon Genesis Evangelion” (ShinSeiki Evangerion). It won several major animation awards. It was on TV from October 4th 1995 to March 27th of 1996 (Total: 26 episodes).

The story is about children that fight with aliens called Shito. One of the characters, Rei Ayanami, has many fanatical fans.


Japanese title: Zankoku na Tenshi no Te-ze
English title : Thesis of a Cruel Angel

Lyrics:

Young boy, like a cruel angel’s thesis,
Live up to be a legend…

Even though clear blue winds
Beat on the door of my heart,
You just smile, looking straight at me
Too involved in yearning for
Something to hold on
The innocent eyes still no nothing of fate yet.

But someday you will notice
On those shoulders of your
There are strong wings
To guide you to the far future.

A cruel angel’s thesis
Will someday fly high from the window
If memories are betrayed by
The overflowing, burning pathos (emotions).
Young boy, shine like a legend,
Holding the sky in your arms.

The cradle of love that sleeps within me
There will be a morining that
A servant of dreams will come for you.
The moonlight shines on your thin neckline.
I’d stop time in this world
And lock it away for myself, but…

If there is any meaning
In the fate that pulled us together,
Then I am, yes, the Bible
That teaches you of freedom.

A cruel angel’s thesis
And then sorrow comes forth
When the shapes of the dreams you hold in your arms
Come to life within you.
Young boy, who shines brighter than anyone else,
Rise to become a legend.

People weave together love to create history
And so I live on,
Unable to become a goddess…

A cruel angel’s thesis
Will someday fly high from the window
If memories are betrayed by
The overflowing, burning pathos (feelings).
Young boy, shine like a legend,
Holding the sky in your arms.

In Japanese:

Zankoku na tenshi no you ni
Shonen yo, shinwa ni nare…

Aoi kaze ga ima mune no doa wo tataitemo,
Watashi dake wo tada mitsumete
Hohoenderu Anata
Sotto Fureru mono
Motomeru koto ni muchuu de,
Unmei sae mada shiranai itaikena hitom

Dakedo itsuka kizuku deshou
Sono senaka ni wa
Haruka mirai mezasu tame no
Hane ga aru koto…

Zankoku na tenshi no te-ze
Madobe kara yagate tobitatsu
Hotobashiru atsui patosu de
Omoide wo uragiru nara
O-zora wo daite kagayaku
Shonen yo, shinwa ni nare

Zutto nemutteru watashi no ai no yurikago
Anata dake ga yume no shisha ni
Yobareru asa ga kuru
Hosoi kubisuji wo tsukiakari ga utsushiteru
Sekai-ju- no toki wo tomete
Tojikometai kedo…

Moshi mo futari aeta koto ni imi ga aru nara,
Watashi wa, sou, jiyu- wo shiru
Tame no Baiburu

Zankoku na tenshi no te-ze
Kanashimi ga soshite hajimaru
Dakishimeta inochi no katachi
Sono yume ni mezameta toki
Dare yori mo hikari wo hanatsu
Shonen yo, shinwa ni nare

Hito wa ai wo tsumugi nagara rekishi wo tsukuru
Megami nante narenai mama
Watashi wa ikiru…

Zankoku na tenshi no te-ze
Madobe kara yagate tobitatsu
Hotobashiru atsui patosu de
Omoide wo uragiru nara
O-zora wo daite kagayaku
Shonen yo, shinwa ni nare

Kami Anison – Godly Awesome Animation Songs – Part 2 – Sakura Wars

I still remember when this song caught my ears as it left me with a strong impression during a TV commercial.

Sakura War was first released as a video game for Sega Saturn. Then, it became an animation for TV and musical because of its charming characters and well thought-out stories.

The character’s costumes and names are like Japanese ones from around the end of the samurai period, but they live in a very technologically advanced nation with advanced weaponry. The main characters are such pure ladies, though they have strong wills and fight. I guess these mismatches of traditional looks with dramatic action are what make this animation so intriguing.

Sakura War Opening
Hikisaita Yami ga Hoe Furueru Teito ni (At Teito where the torn darkness roars and shakes )

Ai no Uta Takaraka ni Odorideru Senshitachi (The soldiers burst out singing a love song from the rooftops)

Kokoro made Koutetsu ni Busousuru Otome (The ladies arm even their hearts with steel)

Aku wo Kechirashite Seigi wo Shimesunoda (Blow up evil and show justice)

Hashire Kousoku no Teikoku Kagekidan (Run at light speed Teikoku Kagekidan)

Unare Shougeki no Teikoku Kagekidan (Howl electrifyingly Teikoku Kagekidan)

Kami Anison – Godly Awesome Animation Songs- Part 1 – Sosei no Aquarian

Here, I will publish Kami Anisons (Godly Awesome Animation Songs).

The memorable first one is Sosei no Aquarian. It is from a Science Fiction animation, which broadcasted in 2005. The story is about the war between humans and their enemies, Datenshi (Fallen Angels). They were beaten 12,000 years ago, but came back due to cataclysmic weather changes. Global Warming, anyone?

The catch phrase “I want to unite with you” aroused criticism because it contains a kind of sexual meaning.

This song got a JASRAC Award (Japan Society for Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers) in 2008, because of its specific melody which gets stuck in your head and Akino’s beautiful voice.

I hope you enjoy it!
