Happy February 29th, everyone…

Let us celebrate this special day that only swings around once every 4 years! (Wow, when the next one arrives, I’ll be getting ready to go to graduate school…yipes.) Let’s dance, drink loads of (root) beer, and sing J-Pop all night long! (I wish.)

Speaking of singing, I can’t get Reverse by Saiga Mitsuki out of my head – her “manly” voice never ceases to amaze me. I found out it was used as an insert in Nurse Witch Komugi-chan Magikarte episode 2.5. Saiga Mitsuki voices an singer named Kyosuke and there’s a music video shown of the song (it comes in 1/4 into the episode…I think).


I didn’t take any screenshots while watching, so I’ll have to make do with this pic of Kyosuke from SoulTaker, of which Komugi was a spin-off. He looks less fierce in Komugi, though.

I’ve been aching to learn to sing it but figuring out lyrics by ear is a pain, and a Google search yields no results either, so I finally watched the video and copied them down. The meaning of the song is surprisingly depressing in comparison to what you hear.

Romaji lyrics + fansubbers’ translation after the jump.

I’m too lazy to tweak it for better English…so just enjoy the song and follow/sing along! Here’s a YouTube video with the song if you don’t feel like downloading it.

Reverse
Saiga Mitsuki as Kyosuke

Romaji:
Nisenjuuinen no Toukyou wa
Onsoku na NIHIRIZUMU ni afurete
Kanzen no bousou ga
Chi mo namida mo haikyo to kashiteitta

Nisenninen no yoru bokura wa
Subete wo sono mirai ni chikatte
Dakishimeta mune no naka
Namida tsukau kyou to onaji you ni

Sekai wo tomeru ai de aru koto
Toki no uzu ni nomareteitemo
Hikari ga itsumo kimi de aru koto
Shinjitai sa nani mo kamo ga eien ni nemuttemo

Sabi tsuita machi wa shitsubo ni kyoumei
Gikyoku kashita PARUSU ni yoru seigyo
Owari wa kurikaesu
Taemanaku furi tsuzuki ame no you ni

Nisen nijuuninen no futari wa
Kimi no hitomi dake ni utsutta
Gensou no rakuen to aoi sora wo
Mezashite tabi data

Sekai wo tomeru ai de aru koto
Toki no uzu ni nomareteitemo
Hikari ga itsumo kimi de aru koto
Shinjitai sa nani mo kamo ga eien ni nemuttemo

Sekai wo tomeru ai de aru koto
Toki no uzu ni nomareteitemo
Hikari ga itsumo kimi de aru koto
Shinjitai sa nani mo kamo ga eien ni nemuttemo

Translation:
Tokyo in the year 2012
Overwhelmed with unbridled anarchy.
Driving around wrecklessly…
I sunk into destitution, leaving blood and tears.

In the nights of 2002 we
Pledged everything towards that future
Within our embraced hearts.
Let the tears run, just like today.

If there’s love that can stop this world
Even if it’s swallowed in the swirling sea of time
It always shines brightly when you’re near
I want to believe in it, even if everything perishes away.

A rusted city resonates of humidity
Controlling my dramatically changing pulse.
There is no end to this
Like the relentless rains that fall continuously

The vision of the two of us in the year 2022
Only reflects in your eyes
In search for a deluded paradise and a blue sky
I went on a journey.

If there’s love that can stop this world
Even if it’s swallowed in the swirling sea of time
It always shines brightly when you’re near
I want to believe in it, even if everything perishes away.

If there’s love that can stop this world
Even if it’s swallowed in the swirling sea of time
It always shines brightly when you’re near
I want to believe in it, even if everything perishes away.
