supercell 2nd single: Sayonara MEMORIES (さよならメモリーズ)

January 9, 2010

illus. by redjuice.

So there’s a new supercell single coming out, and naturally I’ll be fanboying over it for the next few months.

So about the lyrics – ryo seems to be writing a set of season-themed songs, with hajimete no koi ga owaru toki representing winter, and kimi no shiranai monogatari alluding summer. And sayonara memories here captures the image of spring quite well. All with a single recurring theme: unrequited love.

But enough of my speculation; let’s get to the lyrics already. (You can listen to the song at this link. (Or the niconico video link with the full song!)

Darker than Black Ryuusei no Gemini OP1 – Tsukiakari no Michishirube

November 13, 2009

Tsukiakari no Michishirube

Here it is. Tsukiakari no Michishirube (Guidepost of the Moonlight) is Darker than Black -Ryuusei no Gemini- first opening and Stereopony’s 5th single.

If you remember how good is ‘Namida no Mukou’ of Gundam 00 Season 2’s ED2 is, they are the ones who did it. The song is really amazing and they are totally cute. So yeah, forgive Bones that they picked Stereopony as opening instead of Abingdon Boys School. It is worth it.

So, keeping my promise, I have translated (and romanji-ified) the lyrics to the ending theme of Bakemonogatari – Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari. I have had strong feelings for this song ever since I first heard it: the beautiful lyrics, the harmonious melody, and the sweet soothing vocals were all so amazing. And, well, here we go. (Again.)

This links to ryos blog.

This links to ryo's blog.

In response to my relatively low post ratio, and to accommodate his new animation project,  I decided to write up a slightly irrelevant article on one of my favourite internet artists: ryo of supercell, an aspiring lyricist/composer/arranger from the famed Japanese video streaming website, niconico douga (ニコニコ動画)
