LUNA SEA : THE ONE – crash to create – (lyrics)

Standard

This is Luna Sea’s amazing new single. I thought about trying to put the lyrics in romaji, so this is the result ^_^

Took the lyrics in Kanji from here

Oh 降りしきる光 So 高鳴る鼓動

今 頬伝う痛み So 伝えきれない想いを

その光は 消えては灯された

その新たな 時に命かけた…

その小さな 魂は知ってた

月光の輪が 海原をおさめた

Moonlight 託して…

呼び起こして Moonlight

壊して…

メザメテ…

さぁ 囁いて今 優しい声で 全てを差し出すから

心に深く 沈めていたよ 真実の姿を

小さな魂は 漆黒の闇夜に

新しい月が生まれるのを知る

膨れ上がる様に 弾け飛んだ夢の

欠片を集めてくれた君がいた

さぁ 囁いて今

小さな魂は 新しい姿を 手に入れた

月が満ちてゆく中で

荒れ狂う海原 その声は 掻き消されて…

空の彼方に 舞う

小さな魂は 漆黒の闇夜に

絶望の唄を歌っていたんだ

空の彼方まで 月の鏡に映して 翳して

君が見つけた僕は あの日の夜の風に

失いかけていたんだ 絶望の淵で

降りしきる この雨に 時は迷走して

ささやかな真実は 闇に包まれたまま…

降りしきる この雨に 君が凍えてたら

この胸に 抱き寄せて 守ってあげたい 今夜は

空の彼方へ 君の翼で 空の彼方へ

空の彼方に舞う 真実の欠片を…

空の彼方に舞う 真実の姿を…

君の瞳は

君の誓いは

君の瞳は

君が見つけた あの日の僕は

恐れていたよ 壊れる夜の唄

So 今答えよう So 高鳴る鼓動

今 闇を切り裂け 今 刻み込まれた想いよ

五つの魂は 引き寄せられるままに

光に溶け出して 時を変えてゆくよ

ねえ聞こえているのか ねえ見詰めているのか

月の言霊 あの夜

君が見つけた僕は あの日の風に散って

失いかけていたんだ この想いさえ

記憶の風が夜空を 染めてゆくから 今

新しい時が ほら 輝き始める

切り裂け翼よ はてなき空 答えよう

高鳴る想いのまま

切り裂け翼よ はてなき空

もう二度と 止む事はない 想いを

Episode.0

Standard

I’m so loving this song and image that GACKT chose to promote the song that I had to make a post about it ^^;

His image is based on Gakupo, the vocaloid that GACKT lent his voice to, back in 2007. But it’s more Gakupo Visual Kei and I absolutely love his clothes and that purple wig. The song was the winner of a Nico Nico Douga contest and GACKT is singing this song and also the runner up Paranoid doll.

Though my favorite performance so far was on Music Japan, I found a Youtube clip of the Happy Music Store performance which features HIZAKI from Versailles ^_^v

Last song…

Standard

My motivation for learning Japanese was widely influenced by Japanese music. I’ve always wanted to be able to understand the lyrics, to me that’s very important.

Last song by GACKT has been one of the songs that has accompanied me trough the learning process and always reminds me of when I started learning Japanese.

I just love this live version, so beautiful..

And here is a translation by Amaiakuyume at moon-struck.net

 

Learned Kanji 2

Standard

I gave up following the NihongoUp lessons order, because since I got some flashcards that have different Kanji than the lessons and I’m actually able to study more that way, I’ll just post the Kanji I learn in a random order… 😉

Here are some more that I recently learned:

父 chichi (father)

母 haha (mother)

友 tomo (friend)

男 otoko (male)

女 onna (female)

本 hon (book, counter for long objects)

金 kane/kin (money/gold)

木 ki (tree)

水 mizu (water)

人 hito (person)

子 ko (child)

火 ka/bi(fire)

月 gatsu/tsuki (month/moon)

日 nichi (sun/day)

I always thought I wouldn’t enjoy learning Kanji, but it isn’t half bad after all!

Also I know I’m not putting up all the possible readings for these Kanji, I’m focusing more on their meanings and recognizing the characters.

Study update & Versailles II

Standard

Recently I acquired some good books that will surely help me in my Japanese studying, they’re very practical so I’m excited ^.^ I hope to make more progresses!

So Versailles again…xD I’ve been listening to a lot of their music and I must say that I really enjoy it, I already knew them but only recently I’ve really started to “listen” to them, good music.

I’ve been watching their mini dorama Onegai kanaete Versailles and I’m able to understand some tidbits of it which makes me happy ^____^

I’ll end with this song Amorphous, it’s just so beautiful…

 

Study update & Versailles

Standard

I guess I hit a saturation point in all the Japanese grammar studying, I need to give my brain a rest…meanwhile I’m reading a conversational Japanese book which is very useful. I still keep practicing my vocabulary  and understanding everyday ^_^

And

Lately I can’t get enough of the Japanese band  Versailles… they’re really great, love their music and visuals, honestly they’re the first visual kei band that I’m really into. Today I woke up with this song on my mind:

Their new single Philia is also very good ^^

Study…

Standard

I feel sleepy now so…. no more studying for me today.

I feel like I have to do it in the morning, otherwise my mind can’t really absorb anything, when it gets late, I’m too tired and can’t retain  anything….

Tomorrow I’ll be studying  particles, found a text that has the information laid out in a simple way, so I’m expecting to make some progresses ^^v

Well, I still have time for a bit more of music, this song Glowing Butterfly by Versailles, the more I listen to it, the more I like it. Versailles is an awesome band!

Study & Music

Standard

I’ve always studied while listening to music, the silence really bothers me and I can’t seem to concentrate without music.

Japanese music was what got me into studying the Japanese languange so everything is connected! ^_^

I enjoy practicing my understanding of the Japanese language by listening to music, it’s cool to see the progress you make trough it.

Some examples:

L’ Arc ~en ~Ciel – READY STEADY GO!

Hikaru Utada – Goodbye happiness

Aya Kamiki – Mou kaeranai

Study Update II

Standard

Recently I’ve been focusing more in the speaking part of the language rather than the written part (meaning kanji), it’s cool because now I can make simple sentences and my understanding of the language is also growing. I can listen to music, podcasts and watch tv shows and understand many things ^_^

Meanwhile I keep on continuously working on my vocabulary.

This song has been on my mind a lot lately, the more I listen to it the more I like it.

It’s future by GACKT (of course)

Music

Standard

I love music ^_^ And it was Japanese music that lead me to want to learn Japanese, for some reason I just wanted to understand what it’s sung!

This song HEAVEN, was one of the first japanese songs I’ve ever heard and I immediately fell in love with it

Other one, that really got me into japanese music was this song:

Well pretty much I can say that I love anything GACKT and his songs have been a good vocabulary source for me. Not only his of course, I think searching vocabulary though our favorite j-songs is a good and fun way to study! Just search the lyrics in romaji and then you can use the wakan dictionary feature to look up the meaning of the words ^_^v
