Coconatsu / tilt-six – Mirai Prism

Leave a comment

Coconatsu (produced by tilt-six), SOUND VOLTEX II -infinite infection- original song

This song is probably the main thing that got me interested in SOUND VOLTEX. The concept always seemed interesting, but after I discovered Mirai Prism from tilt-six’s twitter, seeing the gameplay for this particular song was what hooked me – too bad there don’t seem to be any machines in the States. So, when I got the chance to go to Japan, I naturally spent a good chunk of time just trying to clear this song on the hardest difficulty, which I finally managed on the last day of the trip.

Being preoccupied with the gameplay, I didn’t pay that much attention to the lyrics until I sat down and read the booklet, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoy the picture they paint. It did turn out to be a little difficult for me to translate due to certain instances of sort-of-repetition in the choruses; as such, I might have introduced a few more of my own “packaging words” than usual to make it work. I’m decently satisfied with how it turned out, but as always, I’d like to emphasize how much beauty remains within the form of the original lyrics.

Also, full disclosure: two verses past the second English segment, there’s some ambiguity where I’m not entirely sure if I’ve interpreted it adequately. Part of this is determining quote boundaries and the subject of the sentence. For the other part, I’d like to draw attention to the uses of two types of ‘kawaru’ – it basically always involves change, but the 変わる used for ‘days’ is more about transformation, while the 代わる used for ‘you’ is more about switching / substitution.

This song is actually available on iTunes. I’m not sure if it can be bought from outside Japan, though, since I don’t use iTunes. (I actually bought the physical Coconatsu mini-album because I’m silly)

Future Prism
Vocal: Shinonome Natsuhi (CV: Hinami Yuri), Shinonome Cocona (CV: Ozawa Ari)
Lyrics, Music & Arrangement: tilt

A beginning story.
I sing this wish
To the stars. From this place,
I’ve watched the little worlds,
Unfolded them, collected them,
Searching for you countless times.

One wish.
I dance my hope
For you. In this place,
Look at the great big future;
Dream of it, walk through it.
Find your way
To where the light points.

Can you feel my voice and smile?
Don’t worry, shining ray is guiding your way.
You don’t care the wall of you.
cause you can find your way,
when the story ends.

If you’re unable to see
Any kind of light
To brighten even the ground at your feet,

About to fall down,
On the verge of collapse,
Searching for a sign to show you the way,

It’s just the natural thing for me to do,
But I’ll deliver music to you.
We’re always updating for the latest things.
Your wish will come true. Now,

I’ll sing this melody.
Crossing over seasons,
Here with you, in this place,
Let’s picture the little worlds.
We’ll unfold them; we’ll create them.
It’s alright, here’s the premium seat for you.

One wish.
Jump onto a star;
Search for your path.
Look to the great big future;
Dream of it, catch hold of it.
Find your way
To where the light points.

Can you feel my voice and smile?
Don’t worry, shining ray is guiding your way.
You don’t care the wall of you.
cause you can find your way,
when the story ends.

Stand still for a single moment
And you’ll get mercilessly left behind.

I know that as you change yourself for changing days,
You have no one there for you,

But you can’t keep standing back up forever.
People just aren’t strong enough for that.
But still, you need to hold on to those ideals and hopes –
Without a wish, you won’t get anything. More…

I’ll sing this melody.
The rest is for you and me
To search for, to fill up.
The rainbow line is a
Shining ray, Shining ray
To illuminate you again and again.

I’ll sing this melody.
The rest is for you
To weave, to create.
You’re not hallucinating.
Shining ray, Shining ray…
Find your way
To where the light points.

Lyrics, Music & Arrangement:tilt

始まる物語
願いを星に
歌う ここで
小さなセカイを
広げて 集めて
何度でも君を探した

願いひとつ
希望を君に
踊る ここに
大きなミライを
夢見て 歩いて
Find your way
光が指す方へ

Can you feel my voice and smile?
Don’t worry,shining ray is guiding your way.
You don’t care the wall of you.
cause you can find your way,
when the story ends.

もしも君の
足元さえ
照らす明かりも見えなくて

転びそうで
倒れそうで
道標を探すのなら

当然のことだけど そう
君へ音楽を届けるから
いつも最新をまた更新中
願いは叶うよ今

歌うよメロディ
季節を越えて
君と ここに
小さなセカイを
広げて 作るんだ
大丈夫 特等席さ

願いひとつ
飛び乗れ星に
道を 探せ
大きなミライを
夢見て 掴んで
Find your way
光が指す方へ

Can you feel my voice and smile?
Don’t worry,shining ray is guiding your way.
You don’t care the wall of you.
cause you can find your way,
when the story ends.

一瞬でも立ち止まると
容赦なく置いてかれるんだ

変わる日々に代わる君は
誰もいないと知ってるけど

何回も立ち上がれない
人はあんまり強くはないけど
でも理想だって希望だって
願わなきゃ何も もっと

歌うよメロディ
続きは君と
探そう 満たそう
一筋の虹は
Shining ray Shining ray
何度でも君を照らして

歌うよメロディ
続きは君が
綴ろう 作ろう
絵空事じゃない
Shining ray Shining ray
Find your way
光が指す方へ
