School Food Punishment

School Food Punishment (formerly school food punishment) is was ;_; a four-member Japanese band. For reasons, I ended up translating just about the entirety of their catalog, and I’ve listed all of their stuff here for convenience, as well as other works by the band’s members.

After the breakup in 2012, Uchimura and Eguchi went on to start a new band, la la larks. Hasuo is a member of a variety of groups, including 385, bonanzas, and Annabel’s current backing band siraph (along with Yamasaki for the last). Hidai seems to mostly perform live for other groups such as OverTheDogs.

  2. Wow, thank you!!! *___*

  3. Your simply great.

  4. thaaaank you a lot! ^___^

  5. Thank you SO SO SO SOOOOO Much T__T!!!!

  6. I’m really, really glad that I found your blog! I’ve been listening to all their songs ever since Futuristic Imagination was released. Could only understood a few lines and really, really wanted to know what their songs were about since some of them really, really touched me (percentage in particular)

    So really, thanks a lot for providing the translations. For ALL their songs. It really means a lot to a fan like me who can’t understand their lyrics even though I love their music to bits and pieces =D

  7. Pingback: Kimi ni Mune Kyun! (plus a mini Winter Anime update!) | manga weekend

    • the hard work’s much appreciated :)
      (a little bummed out that i only discovered the band after they’d already broken up though. ugh.)

  8. Thank you very very much. I really love School Food Punishment. I’m glad all their songs were translated. :)

  9. Haha me again and as I said before, now grammatically correct! You are great. God sent. I love school food punishment more and more because of you.

  10. thank you for working on this!

  11. http://d.hatena.ne.jp/linernotes/20110530 Transient lyrics. Such a beautiful song. Thank you very much!

  12. Thank you so much! been getting to know this band recently, but knowing that it was already disbanded saddened me. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed your translation works and what’s left from the band.

  13. Hey, will you start translating lalalarks lyrics? They have 2 demos out already :D

    • I’ve thought about it, but I’m a bit hesitant to do it before a non-demo release, since I don’t usually feel comfortable with translating by ear. I might just cave and give it a try, though. “Sayonara Waltz” also has some of the lyrics in the video (I still don’t know where they came from), so that helps, at any rate.

  14. Could you please translate ‘nano’ by spangle call lilli line, covered by la la larks? It has Yumi singing in it…

  15. Good band by the way, but now they’re finding the different way(i mean they’re disabnded)………

  16. My best-guess transcription for “Transient”:
    The lust whirled slowly, the night was (a) holy world
    can nap but surely who will not get(up) early high
    he (washed) my (hand), he cared
    he satisfied me
    but not my own
    he’s not my own
    you will find a way until tomorrow oh
    alright, why not ask him? … oh

    The wounds that tiny we forget, just one thing … oh
    like a heaven, like a small race, small society ooh
    the new world inside of me

    he (washed) my (hand), he cared
    he satisfied me
    but not my own
    he’s not my own
    you will find a way until tomorrow oh
    alright, why not ask him?

    I stay alone (weeping), there’s a world without him complete(ly)
    wounded oh oh oh oh

    he (washed) my (hand), he cared
    he (washed) my (hand), he cared
    he (washed) my (hand), he cared
    he satisfied me ooh

  17. You guys should check out Light Prayers AKXMIM Remix: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DN9_gwk-65Y its probably the best instrumental i have ever heard.

  18. Thx for this! I love this band!
    Can I use your translations to pass on to Spanish?

  19. I’ve been a fan of SFP since the release of Eden of the East. Even after getting into Yumi Uchimura’s new band “la la larks”, I’m still very sad that the band had to split up especially since it was the band I followed the most as well as L’arc~en~ciel.

  20. I wholeheartedly appreciate you for translating their music. I’ve been listening to SFP for the first time in awhile and I’m glad that I can finally understand the lyrics. c:
