C – RPG

School Food Punishment, C ED

Note: This was originally posted on March 21, when the short version (not the TV-size cut) was released at School Food Punishment’s website.

I don’t usually do TV size translations, but it’s sfp, so I had to. (Well, I guess it’s SFP now, since they’ve started capitalizing the name? >_>) As always with the TV size TLs, these will most likely be changed when the single comes out. I’m doing this even earlier than usual, so I don’t even know the actual credits for sure, but judging by the strings, Ryou Eguchi is probably in there somewhere.

As for C, I’m looking forward to it. Trapeze director and Gurren Lagann music are mighty appealing.

EDIT 06/05/11:

Full version is now up. An interesting note is that the set of lyrics given in the anime’s ED sequence uses the kanji 未来 (mirai, “future”) for きみ (kimi, “you”) in a few places, even though such a substitution does not appear in the CD booklet.

And so, the School Food Punishment lyrics project is now up to date, and it will stay complete for a little over a month – in case you haven’t heard, their second album, Prog-Roid, is due for release on July 13. I’ll definitely be translating all of those when the time comes.

RPG
Lyrics: Uchimura Yumi, Eguchi Ryou
Composition: School Food Punishment, Eguchi Ryou
Arrangement: Eguchi Ryou

Going through the window, I quietly escape,
And the city in the night turns into a role playing game.
Following the signposts, I was led to a colorful world.
The signal to start is echoing.

Longing fills every bit of my body.
Wanting to meet you, I’ll run on through,
Flying over the darkness.

School Food Punishment – Slide show

School Food Punishment, c/w C ED RPG

Slide show
Lyrics: Uchimura Yumi, Eguchi Ryou
Composition: School Food Punishment, Eguchi Ryou
Arrangement: Eguchi Ryou

From the valleys of your laugh lines,
They spilled out – lies, lies, lies.
Your swimming gaze seems almost like someone else’s.
The inside my throat tightens up.

The color of your brilliant smile
Is fading away.

School Food Punishment – Transition period

School Food Punishment, c/w C ED RPG

That bit after the first chorus kind of weirds me out, but it’s cool. The song is nice listening. Also, the final verse reminds me a LOT of “butterfly swimmer” (they did the same move with slowing the bass/drums for the second half of the last verse, and there’s nice wordplay/rhyming).

Transition period
Lyrics: Uchimura Yumi, Eguchi Ryou
Composition: School Food Punishment, Eguchi Ryou
Arrangement: Eguchi Ryou

When I turn around, I see my desires line up.
They’re crowding up the narrow space in head.
If it goes on like this, the period can’t come to a close.
I’m already unsatisfied by morning.

So that you don’t fade away, entrust yourself to emotion.
Make your way through the mundane signals.
