DOG DAYS” – Stay With Me

【Lyrics Translation】Horie Yui, DOG DAYS” (season 3) ED

Honestly not super happy with how this TL turned out – need to relearn how to handle this style of song.

Stay With Me
Vocals: Horie Yui
Lyrics: Itou Ken
Composition: Itou Ken
Arrangement: Ookawa Shigenobu

Walking, never standing still, it’s like I’m counting stars
Seeing all these everlasting bonds shine

The dream is leading the way as we begin to run
To the world we imagine, all our wishes in mind

Miss Monochrome – Poker Face

Miss Monochrome ED

ヽ(≧∇≦)ノ

Poker Face
Lyrics / Composition / Arrangement: Kondou Keiichi
Vocals: Miss Monochrome (CV: Horie Yui)

I wonder what you’re thinking about.
I have no idea at all.
What is the meaning of this hand that clutches mine?

You always stay cool with that poker face on,
And I just can’t read what’s inside.
My heart has never pounded hard like this before.
I’m in love with you…

A double-A connects me to you.
So much connects me to you.

Papa no Iu Koto wo Kikinasai! – Coloring

Yui Horie, Papa no Iu Koto wo Kikinasai! ED

I really like this song. One of my favorite anime themes now.

Coloring
Lyrics: Minamoto.K & shu
Composition: Minamoto.K
Arrangement: Minamoto.K & Mashimo Masaki
Vocals: Horie Yui

Gleaming and shining,
Mine alone, Sweet Love.
I wonder if this love will come true.
What color do you think
This brimming passion is?
I guess I’ll show you for just a little.

The little moments that circle with my pulse
Well up with color.
They heal this little, swaying world
Softy, so softly.

Yui Horie – Monochrome

Yui Horie, c/w Papa no Iu Koto wo Kikinasai! ED Coloring

EDIT: Apparently this song has appeared at Miss Monochrome live. I think I still prefer the original version, but it’s an interesting take.

Monochrome
Lyrics: Ruka Kawada
Composition / Arrangement: Ruka Kawada
Vocals: Yui Horie

Within my consciousness, when I close my eyes,
I can remember even now the world with no light or sound.

In my dream, the little white birds
Flapped their wings before the eyes of my younger self, taking off in unison,
High above, high above, far away.

Yui Horie – Endless Star

Yui Horie, c/w DOG DAYS ED PRESENTER

Endless Star
Lyrics: Yui Horie
Composition: Masato Nakayama (Elements Garden)
Arrangement: Masato Nakayama (Elements Garden)
Vocals: Yui Horie

I looked up into the freezing rain and searched for the end of the clouds,
Wanting to send you a light.

The softly falling tears of “Why?” and “How?” spill from my eyes.
The flowers and the wind take them away, and they disappear.

Dragon Crisis! – Everlasting Flower -Taisetsu na Omoi-

Kisaragi Ryuuji (Cv. Shimono Hiro),  Rose (Cv. Kugimiya Rie), Nanao Eriko (Cv. Yukana), Marga (Cv. Horie Yui), Ai (Cv. Inokuchi Yuka), Onyx (Cv. Kamiya Hiroshi); The Scene of DRAGON CRISIS!

And with this epic finale, we conclude the Dragon Crisis! Character Symphony. I like how they slipped a little bit of the “World” BGM track in at the end.

Everlasting Flower -Precious Feelings-
Lyrics / Composition / Arrangement: Miyazaki Makoto
Vocals: Kisaragi Ryuuji (Cv. Shimono Hiro), Rose (Cv. Kugimiya Rie), Nanao Eriko (Cv. Yukana), Marga (Cv. Horie Yui), Ai (Cv. Inokuchi Yuka), Onyx (Cv. Kamiya Hiroshi)

The path I’ve been walking down up until now
Pulled us to itself.
A new future is right there
Waiting for us. Things will be fine.

The day I decided to be stronger,
I actually wanted to cry,
But because you were there for me,
I could fly through the sky.

Dragon Crisis! – curtain call

Kisaragi Ryuuji (Cv. Shimono Hiro),  Rose (Cv. Kugimiya Rie), Nanao Eriko (Cv. Yukana), Marga (Cv. Horie Yui), Ai (Cv. Inokuchi Yuka), Onyx (Cv. Kamiya Hiroshi); The Scene of DRAGON CRISIS!

This song is derived from one of my favorite pieces of BGM from the show. I kind of like the BGM version better in terms of general feel, but this still works quite nicely as part of a musical.

curtain call
Lyrics / Composition / Arrangement: Miyazaki Makoto
Vocals: Kisaragi Ryuuji (Cv. Shimono Hiro), Rose (Cv. Kugimiya Rie), Nanao Eriko (Cv. Yukana), Marga (Cv. Horie Yui), Ai (Cv. Inokuchi Yuka), Onyx (Cv. Kamiya Hiroshi)

Passing every day in monotony is too boring.
Some kind of excitement is always necessary.
I knew the answer from the beginning,
But taking the long way isn’t such a bad thing.

I’ve come to think of your dazzling smile
As something dear to me.
I’ve made my wish for things to continue like this,
From now on and forever.
