Another translation for a project! Plus, it is summer here, so there won't be another appropriate time to post it. : )

Song: Natsu Dive (Summer Dive)

Eh, this song...I guess you either love it or hate it. I like it mostly for the video where you see flumpool showing off their dance moves. :^__^
The song itself is pretty easy-going, and for the life of me, I really don't understand what it is actually about...even after translating it. I'll take a guess and say that it is about throwing away all of the troubles in life, and just enjoy the happiness of summer. So I suppose only people who love summer will like this song.

Anyway, please enjoy my humble translation, and let me know if there are any mistakes!!!

summer love with flumpoolCollapse )

Ryuta has an obsession with using stars as a focal point in the songs he writes: Hoshi ni Negai wo (Wish to the stars), Nagareboshi (Shooting Star), and the song I have translated in this belated post, Vega (a name of a star).

I always relate stars to dreams. I am not sure why...perhaps it is the whole "wish upon a star" thing we were engraved with by Disney movies. Either way, Vega is totally a Ryuta-esque song, not that I am complaining. I love his lyrics...even if they frustrate me when trying to decipher them.

I will admit I was a little disappointed with Fantasia of Life Stripe. The songs really didn't jump out at me like the others had, but then, I don't think we will have another song like Labo or Dear Mr. & Ms. Picturesque. I totally appreciate flumpool continuing to make more music, because after all, they are pretty amazing at it; however I suppose I expected a little bit more.

...but! I still enjoy the album overall. Vega, in particular, is one of my most played from the album. Mostly because it reminds me of when I went to study abroad in Japan. I had a boyfriend at home, but I wanted to follow my dream of living in Japan. So, we were in different places, but yet, under the same sky. Ultimately it didn't work out, just like in the song, but you just have to be hopeful for the future, even if you still feel attached to the past.

Wow. a lot of rambling. Anyway, on with the song! :D

PS As always, if you spot a mistake, please let me know!

I'd pull down the stars for youCollapse )

Wow this song was difficult to translate! Or maybe it is just Ryuta's word usage that confuses me?

Anyway, thanks to turtle-yurippe for helping me with the lyrics I was stuck on. : )

This was translated for a project, so enjoy!!

I still have some school stuff to do, but I was sidetracked. : )

I know this song came out a while ago, but it's one of my favorite songs from flumpool. I think because it sounds pretty similar to their Hoshi ni Negai wo, which is my favorite. And I thought I should take a stab at translating it. ^__^

流れ星(Nagare Boshi) in English is translated as "Shooting Star."

It is a very sweet song by Ryuta. <3 <3 So, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

As usual, if anyone spots a mistake, please let me know!

I don't care where you post the translation, whether it be on a forum or on a concrete wall, but all I ask if for you to credit me. Arigatou~!

let's make a promise on a shooting starCollapse )
