愛しき影法師 | Dear Silhouette

Requested by Joseph, I usually don’t take requests anymore, but this song was simple (for the most part), so I did it. I haven’t translated a kancolle song in many years. I haven’t translated much in general, so I can really feel my skills deteriorating.

Notes: There was one part that through me off: 「一休」. That is the name of a monk, and I can not find any other meanings online. It seems very bizarre and out of place to me, but maybe there’s some sort of hidden meaning behind it.

もう帰れない愛しき故郷
鈍色の空に流れ落ちるあの星たち
片隅に咲く小さな命
時くればやがて争いの香りに

mou kaerenai itoshiki kokyou
nibiiro no sora ni nagare ochiru ano hoshitachi
katasumi ni saku chiisa na inochi
toki kureba yagate arasoi no kaori ni

No longer can I return to my dear hometown
Stars shoot through the gray sky
Small lives bloom in a crevice
When the time comes, they’ll give off the scent of war

大切な人守りぬきたい
自由な腕で抱きしめたい
左の胸が止まる日まで
姿が変わり果てて声枯れても

taisetsu na hito mamori nukitai
jiyuu na ude de daki shimetai
hidari no mune ga tomaru hi made
sugata ga kawari hatete koe karetemo

I want to protect those important to me
I want to embrace them with arms of freedom
Until the day when my heart stops
Even if my form completely changes and my voice withers

今を生きて暖かいわ
あなたを思うそれだけで
この海まで運んできた一休を
抱きしめ眠る

ima o ikite atatakai wa
anata o omou sore dake de
kono umi made hakonde kita ikkyuu o
daki shime nemuru

Right now I’m alive, and I feel warm
just by thinking about you
I embrace the monk who carried me to these seas
and sleep

もう帰れない愛しき故郷
今輝くのは時代経つ祈り

mou kaerenai itoshiki kokyou
ima kagayaku no wa jidai tatsu inori

No longer can I return to my dear hometown
What shines now are prayers passing through the ages

希望の鐘に耳を澄ませ
自由の翼手にしたい
非力嘆いて頼りなくて
このまま消えて嘘になりたくない

kibou no kane ni mimi o sumase
jiyuu no tsubasa te ni shitai
hiriki nageite tayorinakute
kono mama kiete uso ni naritakunai

Open your ears to the bell of miracles
I wish to obtain wings of freedom
I don’t want to disappear
and become a lie while I’m powerless and unreliable

空は人に何をうつす
ふるさとからの影法師
この海まで流れついたわけが
願いになるなら

sora wa hito ni nani o utsusu
furusato kara no kageboushi
kono umi made nagare tsuita wake ga
negai ni naru nara

What does the sky show people?
Silhouette from their hometowns
If my reason for drifting all the way out to this sea
will become a wish,

ゆっくりと眠ろう
愛しき影法師

yukkuri to nemurou
itoshiki kageboushi

then let us sleep in peace
Dear silhouette

Wondering Children

Lyrics stolen from a youtube comment. I originally stumbled into this after wishing the Lotus Land Story extra songs had a better arrangement in -MABORO-. This quickly grew on me, and the lyrics are pretty cool too. This is probably my favourite extra stage in all of Touhou.

Notes: 「歪むMadly執念」、 「渦巻く感情Crazy残虐で」、「常にRusty怨念」、「最凶の極みBadly荒ぶって」、and 「此処はSadly領域」 were all really hard lines to interpret, so I just translated them literally and hoped for the best (except that last quote, which I went super liberal on. I’m pretty sure it’s actually supposed mean “This is a sad territory”).

under the dark
wondering around
together go mad!!

獲物探しの徘徊 それはまるで遊戯
金色に浮かぶ視線 上下左右に動き
挟み撃ちの瞬間を 固唾を呑み狙う
取り憑いては連れ去る 巣窟には嘆き
邪な姉妹達だと人は噂した
border line
超えてはいけない次元に踏み入れたら 終わり
妖魔と化し
狂い散った夢幻の紅い 蠍火四方八方に
歪むMadly執念
渦巻く感情Crazy残虐で
共鳴した二つの鼓動が弾け地獄絵図
酷なBloody魂 抵抗できない
Deadly傷を負い彷徨う
悪魔の落とし子達は 今日も数々のコレクションを並べ
共に自慢し合っては 同じ満面の笑みで嘲笑う

emono sagashi no haikai sore wa maru de yuugi
konjiki ni ukabu shisen jougesayuu ni ugoki
hasami uchi no shunkan o katazu o nomi nerau
tori tsuite wa tsure saru soukutsu ni wa nageki
yokoshima na shimai tachi da to hito wa uwasa shita
border line
koete wa ikenai jigen ni fumi iretara owari
youma to kashi
kurui chitta mugen no akai sasoribi yamou yamou ni
yugamu Madly shuunen
uzumaku kanjou Crazy zangyaku de
kyoumei shita futatsu no kodou ga hajike jigoku ezu
koku na Bloddy tamashii teikou dekinai
Deadly kizu o oi samayou
akuma no otoshigotachi wa kyou mo kazukazu no korekushon o narabe
tomo ni jiman shi atte wa onaji manmen no emi de warau

Wondering in search of prey is just like a game to them
Their floating golden gazes moves up down, left right
They hold their breaths aiming for the moment they can attack from both sides
Once they take you, they’ll kidnap you to their den where only grief awaits
“Those sisters are evil,” everyone spread the rumor
border line
Once you step into the dimension you should never cross into, it’s over
You’ll lose your humanity
The illusionary scarlet flame of the scorpion scatters in all directions
Tenacity twists madly
Whirling emotions, crazy and cruel
The two’s heartbeats resonate and burst, painting a scene from hell
There’s no way to resist their cruel bloody souls
You’ll wander, bearing a deadly injury
The two fallen devil children arrange their numerous collection again today
Upon boasting together, with the same smile across their face, they laugh scornfully

堕天の過去の全てを 隠す為が故に
善を身にまとうのか 飾りだけの翼
滴る心の血潮 情けも涙もない
引きずり込む喜び 根底には魔性
正気の沙汰じゃ出来ないと 皆が狼狽えた
Never touch
触れてはいけない地雷を踏んだならば 末期
悪夢の様に
払い除けたはずの落ちた怒火絡み付き
常にRusty怨念
最凶の極みBadly荒ぶって
暗黒という独房に閉ざされた闇世界
此処はSadly領域
太刀打ちできないCloudy永遠に
流離う

daten no kako no subete o kakusu tame ga yue ni
zen o mi ni matou no ka kazari dake no tsubasa
shitataru kokoro no chishio nasake mo namida mo nai
hiki zuri komu yorokobi kontei ni wa mashou
shouki no sata ja dekinai to mina ga urotaeta
Never touch
furete wa ikenai jirai o funda naraba makki
akumu no you ni
harai noketa hazu no ochita ikaribi karami tsuki
tsune ni Rusty onnen
saikyou no kiwami Badly arabutte
ankoku to iu dokubou ni tozasareta yami sekai
koko wa Sadly ryouiki
tachi uchi dekinai Cloudy eien ni
sasurau

In order to hide everything about their fall from grace,
do they try to look virtuous? Her wings are just for show
When blood is dripping from your heart, they have no pity or tears for you
They pull you in with joy, but deep inside, they’re devilish
“It’s nothing a sane person could do,” the people dismayed
Never touch
Once you step on the landmine you should never touch, you’re finished
It’ll be like a nightmare
The fallen angry flames you should have kept away stick to you
Forever rusty hatred
Extreme of bad luck badly out of control
Locked in a cell called “darkness,” it’s a world of shadow
In this territory, sadly
you have no chance, and will roam in a cloudy
eternity

狂い散った無限の紅い 蠍火四方八方に
歪むMadly執念
渦巻く感情Crazy残虐で
共鳴した二つの鼓動が弾け地獄絵図
酷なBloody魂 抵抗できない
Deadly傷を負い彷徨う
悪魔の迷い子達はいつも 乾いた欲望胸に抱いて
二人より添い合ってはきっと 淋しさ埋めてた
悪魔の落とし子達は今日も 数々のコレクションを並べ
共に自慢し合っては同じ 満面の笑みで
咽び泣いた

kurui chitta mugen no akai sasoribi yamou yamou ni
yugamu Madly shuunen
uzumaku kanjou Crazy zangyaku de
kyoumei shita futatsu no kodou ga hajike jigoku ezu
koku na Bloddy tamashii teikou dekinai
Deadly kizu o oi samayou
akuma no mayoigotachi wa itsu mo kawaita yokubou mune ni daite
futari yori soi atte wa kitto samishisa umeteta
akuma no otoshigotachi wa kyou mo kazukazu no korekushon o narabe
tomo ni jiman shi atte wa onaji manmen no emi de
musebi naita

The illusionary scarlet flame of the scorpion scatters in all directions
Tenacity twists madly
Whirling emotions crazy and cruel
The two’s heartbeats resonate and burst, painting a scene from hell
There’s no way to resist their cruel bloody souls
You’ll wander, bearing a deadly injury
The lost devil children always embrace the parched lust in their heart
After they came close together, they surely buried their loneliness
The two fallen devil children arrange their numerous collection again today
Upon boasting together, with the same smile across their face,
they choked back their tears

so…tears

Love me some AdamKadmon. Can’t wait for their newest album, Train.

Lyrics from Xiami, so I don’t know how reliable they are. I took 霞める as 掠める.

to…her…

懐かしい青い空へと
ふと帰りたくなるよ
君の笑う声で起きて
ふと空を見上げたよ

natsukashii aoi sora e to
futo kaeritaku naru yo
kimi no warau koe de okite
futo sora o mi ageta yo

Suddenly I find myself wanting to
return to the nostalgic blue sky
Waking up to your laugh,
I looked up to the sky without thinking

風は優しく 頬を霞めて
さよならの時 流した涙
隠し続けてる…

kaze wa yasashiku hoho o kasumete
sayonara no toki nagashita namida
kakushi tsudzuketeru…

The wind gently rubs my cheeks
It’s time for goodbye, and I continue
to hide my tears…

wanna still be love…彼方へ
wanna still be love この両手広げて
もう空へ 出かけに行こうよ

wanna still be love… kanata e
wanna still be love kono ryoute hirogete
mou sora e dekake ni yukou yo

wanna still be love… into the distance
wanna still be love, I raise out both my hands
Let’s take off to the sky already

wanna still be love…いつでも
wanna still be love…果てしない
涙を超えてね 出かけに行こうよ

wanna still be love… itsu demo
wanna still be love… hate shinai
namida o koete ne dekake ni yukou yo

wanna still be love… forever
wanna still be love… without an end
Let’s beat the tears and go out

to…her…her

懐かしい青い空から
この歌が流れ出す
君と会う度 聴かせたい
すぐに涙を止めて

natsukashii aoi sora kara
kono uta ga nagare dasu
kimi to au tabi kikasetai
sugu ni namida o tomete

This song flows down from
the nostalgic blue sky
I want to make you listen to it every time we meet
Hurry up and stop the tears

風は優しく 頬を霞める
さよならの時 笑顔でまたねって
泣いていたの true…

kaze wa yasashiku hoho o kasumeru
sayonara no toki egao de mata ne tte
naiteita no true…

The wind gently rubs my cheeks
It was time for goodbye, and I said “see you later”
with a smile, crying, it’s true…

wanna still be love…彼方へ
wanna still be love…傍にいてあげたい
いつでも どんな時だって

wanna still be love… kanata e
wanna still be love… soba ni ite agetai
itsu demo donna toki datte

wanna still be love… into the distance
wanna still be love… I want to be there for you
forever, all the time

あの空へ もう一度
あの空へ 帰りたくなったら
この空 見上げて二人で…

ano sora e mou ichido
ano sora e kaeritaku nattara
kono sora mi agete futari de…

To that sky, once more
To that sky, when I begin wanting to return
I look up at this sky with you…

to…her…
lalala…

Warning: This song has been entirely transcribed and translated by ear. There could be mistakes.

You may have seen this one in my 15 song list. AdamKadmon is good, and this song has been a favourite of mine for a while, plus it’s rather short, so I decided to do this.

夢から醒めても 暗闇の世界
真実は闇の渦 飲み込まれ
現実と恐怖 支配するものよ
暗黒の中へ その手翳して

yume kara sametemo kurayami no sekai
shinjitsu wa yami no uzu nomi komare
genjitsu to kyoufu shihai suru mono yo
ankoku no naka e sono te kazashite

Though I wake from my dream, the world’s in darkness
Truth is swallowed by a vortex of the dark
Those who rule over reality and fear,
raise your hands towards the center of the darkness!

Fall into falling kiss, in darkness, in the way
時を刻む闇と理想
もう届かない

Fall into falling kiss, in darkness, in the way
toki o kizamu yami to risou
mou todokanai

Fall into falling kiss, in darkness, in the way
Ideals and darkness ticking time away
No longer can I reach…

眠れない夜の真ん中で数え切れない悪夢が舞う
闇へと誘う天使は悪魔の心を持った支配者

nemurenai yoru no mannaka de kazoe kirenai akumu ga mau
yami e to izanau tenshi wa akuma no kokoro o motta shihaisha

In the middle of a sleepless night, countless nightmares dance
The angel who beckoned me to the dark was tyrant wielding the heart of a devil

夢から醒めても 奏で合う魂
真実は闇へ解き放たれた
現実と恐怖 支配するものよ
暗黒の音を そう響かせて

yume kara sametemo kanade au tamashii
shinjitsu wa yami e toki hanatareta
genjitsu to kyoufu shihai suru mono yo
ankoku no oto o sou hibikasete

Though I wake from my dream, my soul is in harmony
Truth is set free to the darkness
Those who rule over reality and fear,
let the sound of darkness ring so!

Fall into falling kiss, in darkness, in the way
時を巡る闇と恐怖
もう戻れない

Fall into falling kiss, in darkness, in the way
toki o meguru yami to kyoufu
mou modorenai

Fall into falling kiss, in darkness, in the way
Traveling through time, darkness and fear
No longer can I return…

眠れない夜の真ん中で数え切れない悪魔が裁く
闇へと誘う私を引き止めるものは誰もいないの?

nemurenai yoru no mannaka de kazoe kirenai akuma ga sabaku
yami e to izanau watashi o hiki tomeru mono wa dare mo inai no?

In the middle of a sleepless night, countless demons judge me
Is there no one to hold me back from luring you to the darkness?
