Bloodivores – Yu Wo Gong Ming -NENTEN- (Japanese)

【Lyrics Translation】 Mili, Bloodivores OP (Japanese version)

As far as I know, a full version of the Japanese version has never been released. I transcribed the lyrics by ear [=耳コピ]; as such, accuracy is not 100% guaranteed. I did, however, cross-reference with the Chinese translation found in the show’s official subs, so there’s that.

Resonate With Me -TORSION-
Performed by Mili
Lyrics: Yamato Kasai
Composition: Mili

Shining in pale white,
The light trickled down
And cycled through my brain

On the twisted
Smile on your lips,

Tenkyou no Alderamin – Tenkyou no Alderamin

【Lyrics Translation】 KISIDA KYODAN & THE AKEBOSI ROCKETS, Nejimaki Seirei Senki: Tenkyou no Alderamin OP

Alderamin on the Sky
Lyrics / Composition: Kishida
Arrangement: Kishida Kyoudan & THE Akeboshi Rockets

There’s no meaning in idealized theory that ignores phenomena.
Fortunately, we seem to have had a need for the ability to think.

If I’m gonna become a hero, the cause of my death won’t be anything decent.
I’d like to yield it to you, but I don’t have the right to choose.

Angel Beats! -1st beat- – Million Star

【Lyrics Translation】 Girls Dead Monster, Angel Beats! -1st beat- bonus song

Million Star
Vocals: marina
Lyrics / Composition: Maeda Jun
Arrangement: Hikarisyuyo

There’s no way my dreams will come true, there are so many things I don’t want to do,
With so many depressing days, I’m getting sick of this
I thought I had talent for something only I could do
There are more skilled people out there than I’d expected, it really gets me

Now then, for tomorrow’s sake, what will I do?
