Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 3rei!! – cuddle

ChouCho, Prisma Illya 3rei!! ending theme (episode 9)

A bit of a confession: I actually started Prisma Illya with the anime, starting from a few episodes into 3rei, having only experienced Grand Order and the DEEN stay night anime from the Fate fanchise prior. I’d just moved into a new apartment with some friends, and on the PC we hooked up to the TV, we ended up changing the settings to autoplay through entire folders, which led to marathonning of many things. We watched something like episodes 3 through 7 of 3rei in one sitting, and I was hooked so hard that I ended up starting back at the first season, catching up completely in three or four sittings on my own.

I am surely very excited for movie. のヮの

cuddle
Lyrics: Matsui Youhei
Composition / Arrangement: Ishikawa Tomohisa
Vocals: ChouCho

The feelings inside me that don’t appear in any mirror
Were the same thing as the loneliness you’ve always carried.

Having the people important to you be there by your side
Is so much more special that any miracle.
I’ve finally realized that… I’m sure it’s a wish
That every person has. (We believe without fail.)

Fate/Grand Order (Sakamoto Maaya / la la larks) – Shikisai

【Lyrics Translation】 Sakamoto Maaya, Fate/Grand Order OP (First Order ED); Shiawase ni Tsuite Watashi ga Shitte iru Itsutsu no Houhou / Shikisai

This translation is part of the School Food Punishment lyrics project, under the la la larks branch.

Sound produced and performed by la la larks! It’s nice to hear another collaboration between Sakamoto and Eguchi, though it’s considerably different in tone from Buddy.

Colors
Lyrics: Sakamoto Maaya
Composition / Arrangement: la la larks
Strings Arrangement: Eguchi Ryou / Ishitsuka Tooru

When I’m alone, I can hear the words – “If it’s painful, feel free to stop” –
Deep, almost like a black hole; from a sweet voice, frightening and tempting.

I’ll try mimicking the words you so often speak, and say that it’s nothing.
It doesn’t matter if that’s a lie – if it gives me a motive to continue to stand…

Fate/stay night – Kumo no Kakera

Tainaka Sachi feat. Jyukai, Fate/stay night TV Reproduction (Fate/stay night OVA) ED, disillusion-2010-

Saber… ;_;

Fragments of Clouds
Lyrics: Haga Keita
Music: Yamamoto Yuusuke
Arrangement: Dewa Yoshiaki
Vocals: Tainaka Sachi feat. Jyukai

The gentle morning sun rains down, dyeing the world in white.
We walk out, feeling our way along, as though sweeping away our fleeting dreams.

Even if we were to go on loving each other like this,
We both know that it wouldn’t go on after the end,
So now, now, with our hands clasped together,
I just gazed into your eyes.

Jyukai – SAKURA difference

Jyukai, c/w Fate/stay night ED Anata ga Ita Mori

Begun: May 9, 2009. Total time: 493 days.

SAKURA difference
Lyrics: Manami Watanabe
Music: Yoshiaki Dewa
Arranged by Yoshiaki Dewa, Zentaro Watanabe

I can still vividly remember
That day the flower petals fluttered.
Who, in what place, made cherry blossom pink
The color of meeting and parting?

“Don’t go,” I said until I could have cried.
I couldn’t even be clever and use those upturned eyes.
That is how I was, so I hugged you with all I had.

Fate/stay night – Toki no Uzu

Rider (CV: Asakawa Yuu), Fate/stay night Character Image Song VI: Rider

The title is “Toki no Uzu”, rather than “Shunji no Uzu” – in the title and chorus, 瞬時 (shunji, “moment”) is pronounced とき (toki, “time”).

Vortex of Moments
Lyrics: Kosaka Naomi
Composition / Arrangement: Ookubo Kaoru
Vocals: Rider (CV: Asakawa Yuu)

Even if these hands are stained,
A single certain light remains white.

Slashing within the deepening darkness,
I held my blades proudly.
