K-ON!! – Girls in Wonderland

2 Comments

HO-KAGO TEATIME, c/w K-ON!! ED2 NO,Thank You!

I’m getting serious “final episode theme song” vibes here.

Girls in Wonderland
Lyrics: Oomori Shouko
Composition: Maezawa Hiroyuki
Arrangement: Komori Shigeo
Performance: Houkago Teatime
[Hirasawa Yui, Akiyama Mio, Tainaka Ritsu, Kotobuki Tsumugi, Nakano Azusa]

All works of fiction are outdone by this Wonderland.
When the five of us drop by, it’s just out of this world.
I wrote down how things were in my diary.
There’s no way I could have read the words, “Calm down”!

It wasn’t supposed to be like this!?
These high school days are flying too high.
Such a Fantastic World!
I’ll give in to happy miscalculation because it’s fun.

What will happen…!? I wonder what’s written down
On the pages of tomorrow.
Today’s heart and today’s beat are already maxed out.
I’ve come to think that way every day.
The updates of miracles scare me a little bit, but I can’t stop.
I believe that
Our Luck Will Go On!!

No piece of art can depict these Funny Faces.
The five senses of five girls are honest through life’s many phases.
We’re gathered in the photo like we’re in a conversation,
Even if there are so many peace signs!

That’s exactly how it was!!
Even if we cried, everything was fine.
Such a Peaceful World!
We had such warm music and such warm friends!

What will happen…!? In the finder of the future,
I wonder what kinds of faces and scenes will show up.
If the hard reality comes and hits me,
I’ll just hum my favorite phrases.
All we sing about is courage and love. We’re just like that,
So we’ll be fine.
Our Dreams Will Come True!!

I can’t see anything but what’s ahead, and there’s no room to turn around.
I’ll live in the present to the fullest, just filling it with what I “love”!

What will happen to us tomorrow!?
No one knows,
But we’ll always sing, “Oh yeah,” “Take it easy!”

What will happen…!? I wonder what’s written down
On the pages of tomorrow.
Today’s heart and today’s beat are already maxed out.
I’ll think that way every day.
The updates of miracles scare me a little bit, but I can’t stop.
I believe that
Our Luck Will Go On!!

どんなフィクションさえも凌ぐWonderland
五人が寄れば奇想天外
ありのままを書き留めた日記帳
落ち着いてなんか 読めたもんじゃない

こんなはずじゃなかった!?
ハイ過ぎるハイスクールデイズ
So very Fantastic World
嬉しい誤算 楽しいに降参

What will happen…!? 明日のページには
何が書かれているんだろう
今日のハート 今日のビートがもうMAX
毎日そう思ってきたよ
奇跡の更新 少し怖い でも止まれない
信じるよ
Our Lucky Goes On!!

どんなアートにも描けないFunny Faces
五人の五感 感情素直 百面相
会話みたいに撮り合い溜まった写真
にしても多いな みんなピースサイン

その通りだった!!
泣いても平気だった
So very Peaceful World
あったかい音楽と仲間だった

What will happen…!? 未来のファインダーは
どういう顔、景色を映すんだろう
もしもハードな現実ぶつかったら
お気にのフレ-ズ口ずさむよ
勇気や愛ばっか歌ってる 私達なんだし
大丈夫
Our Dreams Come True!!

前しか見えない 振り向く余裕ない
今で精一杯 ただ「好き」でいっぱい

What will happen to us tomorrow!?
No one knows
But we always sing “Oh yeah” “Take it easy”

What will happen…!? 明日のページには
何が書かれているんだろう
今日のハート 今日のビートがもうMAX
毎日そう思ってゆくよ
奇跡の更新 少し怖い でも止まれない
信じるよ
Our Lucky Goes On!!

  1. Thanks so much for translating this! This is so different than “NO, Thank You!” and yet so similar. Both are about living in the present, but each song just depicts it with different moods…

    And really? A final episode theme song? I was actually hoping that either “Utauyo!!Miracle” or “Cagayake! GIRLS” would be featured at some kind of “final concert”…Yui’s the main character after all…

    I’m assuming that a translation of “Kira Kira Days”, the song that came with “Utauyo!!Miracle”, is coming up since you translated this? Though, I must confess that I’m not really a fan of Kira Kira Days…

    • The thing that gives me the feeling that this might be a final ED is the way the lyrics seem to come from the point of view of the girls at a turning point – the song reflects on what life has been like and then turns to the future.

      I actually don’t like “Kira Kira Days” all that much either. I might translate it sometime, but it’s not really a priority for me.
