かぜのゆくえ // 凋叶棕

Let’s become the wind.

Title: かぜのゆくえ (Whereabouts of the Wind)
Circle: 凋叶棕 (Diao ye zong)
Album: 随 (Compliance)

そっと地撫でる箒の先に
ちいさなちいさなかぜがうまれて
ちいさなかぜははこばれてゆく
このおおきなせかいのどこかへと
sotto chi naderu houki no saki ni
chiisana chiisana kaze ga umarete
chiisana kaze wa hakobarete yuku
kono ookina sekai no doko ka he to

The tiny, tiny wind was born from
Under the broom I’ve been sweeping the ground with
This tiny wind keeps blowing
Somewhere in this big, big world

こぼれることばはこぶあしおと
めにうつるすべてのもののさきに
だれかの意味がなにかの意味が
かぜといっしょにはこばれていく
koboreru kotoba hakobu ashioto
me ni utsuru subete no mono no saki ni
dare ka no imi ga nanika no imi ga
kaze to issho ni hakobarete iku

Overflowing words, moving footsteps.
All of the things reflecting in my eyes:
Someone’s meaning, something’s meaning;
They were all blown together with that wind

ーーー誰かが耳を澄ますとき
ーーー誰かの頬を撫でるように
ーーー誰かの髪を揺らしては
ーーー誰かのむねにふいていく
dare ka ga mimi wo sumasu toki
dare ka no hoo wo naderu you ni
dare ka no kami wo yurashite wa
dare ka no mune ni fuite iku

Times when someone listens carefully,
As if it brushed someone’s cheek gently.
Swaying someone’s hair
And blowing right through someone’s chest

かぜのおと
だれかのおと
なんでもない一日から
どこかからまたふいてくる
だれかがいるからふいてくる
kaze no oto
dare ka no oto
nande mo nai ichi nichi kara
doko ka kara mata fuitekuru
dare ka ga iru kara fuitekuru

The sound of the wind
Sound of someone.
Even though it’s such an ordinary day
That wind keeps blowing somewhere
It keeps blowing because of that someone

そのゆくえ
かぜのまにまに
今日を明日へ向かって
ふしぎを聴くその間に間に
もうどこかへ消えて行く
sono yukue
kaze no manima ni
kyou wo ashita he mukatte
fushigi wo kiku sono manima ni
mou doko ka he kiete iku

Its whereabouts
On the mercy of the wind
Heading from today to tomorrow
While I am listening to the miracles,
It disappeared yet again somewhere.

だれかがいて なにかがいる
そうしてまたうまれるかぜはどこへ
dare ka ga ite nanika ga iru
soushite mata umareru kaze wa doko he

Someone exist. Something exists.
And the wind that was born again, where will it go?

そうして日が落ち夜に沈んで
夢の中をさまようときでさえ
なにかをきいてなにかにふれる
どこからともなくふくかぜによせーーー。
soushite hi ga ochi yoru ni shizunde
yume no naka wo samayou toki de sae
nani ka wo kiite nani ka ni fureru
doko kara tomo naku fuku kaze ni yose

And thus the day sets, so the night can fall.
Even when I’m wandering deep in my dreams
I hear something, I touch something,
Together with the wind blowing from nowhere.

ずっとみていたずっときいていた
つどうもののそのなにひとつさえ
ききもらさぬようみうしなわぬよう
かぜがはこぶそのいみのすべてを
zutto miteita zutto kiiteita
tsudou mono no sono nani hitotsu sae
kikimorasanu you miushinawanu you
kaze ga hakobu sono imi no subete wo

It’s always been watching. It’s always been listening.
And everything it meets
So they wouldn’t fail to hear it, so they wouldn’t lose a sight of it
That wind will carry their meaning as well

ーーー誰かが何かを持っていて。
ーーー誰かが何かに浮かれて。
ーーー誰かが何かを想って。
ーーー誰かが何かを見ていて。
dareka ga nani ka wo motteite.
dareka ga nani ka ni ukarete.
dareka ga nani ka wo omotte.
dareka ga nani ka wo miteite.

Someone keeps waiting for something.
Someone’s cheered up by something.
Someone thinks about something.
Someone keeps looking at something.

かぜのおと
なにかのおと
すがたもみえないなにかさえ
このかぜはあなたのかぜ
そんな予感だけふいてくる
kaze no oto
nani ka no oto
sugata mo mienai nani ka sae
kono kaze wa anata no kaze
sonna yokan dake fuitekuru

The sound of the wind
Sound of someone.
Even the shape of something I can’t clearly see
“That wind is the wind of you”
That thought became like a blowing wind

そのゆくえ
ひとのまにまに。
今日も明日があるなら
うまれるひとの間に間に
そしてまたどこかへと
sono yukue
hito no manima ni.
kyou mo ashita ga aru nara
umareru hito no manima ni
soshite mata doko ka he to

Its whereabouts
On the mercy of people
If there is a tomorrow after today
Those winds are born among people
And they keep blowing toward somewhere…

遥か届かぬ時間へ
遠く見えない場所へ
haruka todokanu toki he
tooku mienai basho he

Towards a far away time…
Towards a far, unseen place…

だれかからまただれかへ
なにかからまたなにかへ
全てがつながりゆくように
dare ka kara mata dare ka he
nanika kara mata nani ka he
subete ga tsunagariyuku you ni

From one person to another,
From one thing to another,
Binding everything together

そのゆくえ
かぜのまにまに
今日も明日もこえて
それでもかくも真に真に
たしかにいま吹いている
sono yukue
kaze no manima ni
kyou mo ashita mo koete
soredemo kaku mo manima ni
tashika ni ima fuite iru

Its whereabouts
On the mercy of the wind
Crossing over today and tomorrow.
But really, more than anything
I’m sure that it blows somewhere!

今日も始まる
ーーーかぜよはこんで。わたしがまだ知らない何かのこと。
kyou mo hajimaru
kaze yo hakonde. watashi ga mada shiranai nani ka no koto.

Today begins.
Oh, please, may the wind blow! May it carry something I don’t know yet about.

静寂、突き刺す
嵩張る感傷
私と血の色
裸足の約束
seijaku, tsukisasu
kasabaru kanshou
watashi to chi no iro
hadashi no yakusoku

Silence, stabbing me.
My sentiment growing.
Me and the color of blood.
A barefoot promise.

見て知って
mite shitte

Look and know!

綺麗な花束
緑の信号
私の血の色
醜く光る
kirei na hanataba
midori no shingou
watashi no chi no iro
minikuku hikaru

A beautiful bouquet.
Green light.
Color of my blood.
Shone with an awful color.

叶わない願いだけ
夜の中で交差する
変わらない想いさえ
甘い水を求めてる
kanawanai negai dake
yoru no naka de kousasuru
kawaranai omoi sae
amai mizu wo motometeru

Only unfulfilled wishes
Intersect in the middle of the night.
Even my unchanged feelings
Yearn for sweet water.

不安が貴方を殺しはしないよ
眼で見て手で触れて愛して壊して
fuan ga anata wo koroshi wa shinai yo
me de mite te de furete aishite kowashite

You cannot be killed by anxiety
Look at me with your eyes, touch me with your hands, love me and break me.

叶わない願いだけ
空に溶けて弧を描く
変わらない想いさえ
ゆりかごの中で朽ちた
kanawanai negai dake
sora ni tokete ko wo egaku
kawaranai omoi sae
yurikago no naka de kuchita

Only unfulfilled wishes
Draw an arc on the sky.
Even my unchanged feelings
Decay inside a crib.

安らぎも憎しみも
一層
渦を巻くその中で
羽音が頭に響く
yasuragi mo nikushimi mo
issou
uzu wo maku sono naka de
haoto ga atama ni hibiku

Both serenity and hatred are
Whipping up
A maelstorm.
In my head echoes the sound of flapping wings.

Reitaisai 14 – Review

I was so lazy with doing this review, but finally it’s here!
Reitaisai doesn’t seem to be as good as C91 (which was godly, most money I spent on any event before), but we’ve got a few gems here and there.

The list is a bit shorter than the one I wrote for C91, but because I was lazying for the whole time I’ve got only 2 days for writing it, sorry about that, I’ll try and make the C92 more detailed

1)  凋叶棕 (Diao ye zong) – 随
manimabig
Crossfade

Theme of this album is daily life. Main star of the album is Kosuzu(chansu) with 3(!) arrangements of her newly released theme. So far, I like both the theme as well as arrangments more than ones in tsutae, but I’ll be able to properly judge them when the full version is released.
Favorite tracks: かぜのねいろ, 『仲良し村の八人の仲間たち』, 千夜一夜, かぜのゆくえ

2) FELT – Increase Beat

Crossfade

AAAA BEST ALBUM SINCE WORLD TRICK SOMEONE HOLD MEEEEEE!!
…With that outta the way (ww), yeah, a huge surprise. I was almost giving up on FELT after Fluster Escape, which ended up being not as nice as I expected it to be, this just simply cannot let me down. Moreover, we’ve finally got a new original vocal track! And the remix of New World…. *drool*.
Favorite tracks:  pulse, New World [Eris’s Full of Stars mix], Stellar Flower,  The Ray of Light

3) 豚乙女 – 疑似家族入門
nouzui_big_bannerr
Crossfade

Alright, we had some hype, now some complaining. This is one of the plainest, least interesting albums I’ve ever heard BUTAOTOME produce. Quite contrary to sachlich, released this year on March, or even their C91 release. On the other hand, it’s RTS album (BUTAOTOME often releases pretty boring albums on those events), so let’s pray for something better on C92 (m-maybe next vol. of Shoujo Rengoku?? plssss)
Favorite tracks: つぶれるりゆう, 空色リボン, 春愁

4) 8686m – TAKE TOO, TAKE TWO
tumblr_static_dclb46q2c54wgo44k448oow4w
Crossfade

And I almost thought we won’t see a new album this event, thankfully, we will! If you don’t know yet, 8686m is slowly becoming one of my favorite circles. If you haven’t listened to them yet, please do, they’re a soft rock circle with a wonderful vocalist named Fujiko, I find them very hard to dislike. I dare even say they’re becoming the new kairo. This is their second album, which features themes only from EoSD. Crossfade doesn’t include 5th and 8th track!
Favorite tracks: 退屈, marshmallow, tangent

5) ZYTOKINE – 4Q8Q/NEWBORN CRYING

37
Crossfade

Since the 10th anniversary of C/ZYTOKINE is over, the remixed albums are over too. 4Q8Q is a completely new and original album featuring arrangements of some newer tracks (P U R E  F U R I E S). It’s not very good, but not bad either. Even the nachi-only albums is quite… okay… t-though it’s still not like I like nachi or anyting, hmph!

Favorite tracks: evanescence, fain meteors, pure insanity
Favorite tracks: NEWBORN CRYING, Night dream in the cage, curtain call

6) 死際サテライト – PURGE EP/FRESH EP

7) _erhm – ハレ日紡ぎ

A circle of Sakiko, featuring arrangements done by various artist (mainly ones with whom Sakiko already worked before in their respective circles). If you’re wondering why the name of her circle looks like that, I recommend checking her twitter username (ww)
Favorite tracks: Misyaguji magic to you!, memorandum

8) 暁Records – 少女救世論

Woo, finally a nice Akatsuki album! Previous one had like one good song, this one is much better ♥ It’s a full-Stack album as well.
Favorite tracks: 少女救世論, トレジャーチルノ, Supernova

9) 東方事変 – ヤサシイウタ

10) 魂音泉 (TAMAONSESN) – She Saw

Album artwork is so perfect! Probably not better than STILLING, still good though!
Favorite tracks: She Saw the Future, Changes, Touch

11) Yonder Voice – 桜風の誓い

YV is going back to their normal style, unfortunately we don’t have any more notable tracks, just the average.
Favorite tracks: 桜風の誓い, No grave

12) Hasenpfeffer – shamrock

New awesome circle! Discovered them through 8686m. The leader of this circle is so nice he said he’ll send me the CD, since it’s a RTS limited release!
Favorite tracks: 川流不息随意小酌, 君は恵みの海を照らす, 厄流し

13) AdamKadmon – アダム
AK-012-Jacket-Obiar400
Crossfade

Not as good as Moon from last RTS, still it’s alright. Wani is actually releasing a bundle featuring this CD, new monochrome-coat and a few of his minor albums. If you want to buy it, you can find the bundle on Melonbooks for about 4500 JPY.
Featured tracks:

14) Alstroemeria Records – STRUCTURED DANCEHALL/10th Anniversary Bad Apple!!/lumière ambrée:
Crossfade/Crossfade/Crossfade

Standard Dancehall album, a few remixes of Bad Apple and an ayame only album (mostly hyped for that)
