I thought I’d like to start this season’s music blogs early. This is from an anime I know very little about, but I know the song because I was reading some forums about Nano’s new release and came across it. Looked up the anime a little, but I’m not a fan of bombs, I’m sure you’ve all gathered by now that I’m a fantasy person, so not watching this anime.



Since I don’t know the anime, I’m not quite sure how the song ties with the anime. But I do know that BTOOM is a game about blowing people up, so I get the whole no pain no game part. From that and what else I know, I can relate the parts of the song about being pushed to the limits and facing a new world to the anime. So yeah, a fast paced song, for what is a probably a fast paced action packed anime. That’s all I can say.

I will say one thing about the song, as I’m not fond of the English words popping up now and then in the Japanese verses. Oh and before anyone else asks again, I do know she’s born in America, but again I still couldn’t make out some of the English without looking at the lyrics. Getting back on my point, I appreciate that she’s bilingual and want to put English in her songs, no qualms with that as she pronounces far better than most Japanese artists, for obvious reasons. But if you’re not going to put Japanese words in your English verses, I don’t understand why you’d do it vice versa? It’s just odd… Guess I’ll never understand.

But yeah, apart from that, I love the song, so enjoy.

Lyrics:
Saihate no STORY daite
Atemonaku samayoi tsuzuketa
Mijinda new world
The game has only just begun
Ima hajimari no EYES

This is what tomorrow brings a new game
It’s time to learn that pain is gain ready FIGHT

Lako no shitsubou nuri tsubusu tame ni
Gisei ni shitekita mirai
Boku no raifu ga tsukiru made
Sono sadame uchi kowashite iku no sa

Aa break out and start a revolution
Hitotsu no kotae wo sagashite

Genkai no RACE ni idonde
Ichido kiri no chansu to shitte
Seotta unmei koete ikunda yo
Saihate no STORY daite
Atemonaku samayoi tsuzuketa
Nijinda new world
The game has only just begun
Ima hajimari no EYES

When you feel you’ve reached the last dead end
what will you do to save yourself from fate?
Would you take a knife into your heart
or would you rather break the fall and take defeat?

Aa step out and find your evolution
Hitori no sekai wo utsushite

Eien no CHASE ni idonde
Ichido kiri no sutaato wo kitte
Kurutta tenmei koete ikunda yo
Karehateta imeeji daite
Wake mo naku tatakai tsuzuketa
Kasunda true world
The game has only just begun
Ima hajimari no DAYS

Genjitsu to FAKE no hazama de
Ichido dake risetto yurushite
Sukui wa kitto kokoro no naka ni
Saihate no STORY daite
Atemonaku samayoi tsuzuketa
Nijinda new world
The game has only just begun
Ima hajimari no EYES

Heading out this weekend, and next weekend too actually, so don’t expect anything from me this Saturday or next, apart from that everything is normal.
