回想ノスタルジア ~ monochrome-coat

sample-632a6eed279d694bc0cc055a4b771053

A song I’ve loved in the past, and I still love a lot. Maybe because it’s sung by Merami, maybe because the arranger is Pine Tree, maybe because I will always consider it as if it was done by UNDEAD CORPORATION, maybe because the part at 3:13 gives me always chills, but whenever I listen to it, I’m always amazed by its awesomeness.

Pine Tree is able to make little gems each time, no matter which is the original theme, and this song is no exception. Among all the Retrospective Kyoto arrangements I’ve listened to, this one, together with “Whisper Supremacy” by Riverside are for sure my favorites.

I don’t know if I’m the only one, but I really miss Pine Tree being a guest arranger in monochrome-coat’s CDs; if I started to follow them it’s actually thanks to him. I wonder if there will be surprises in the future; I’d really like to see him working again with monochrome-coat.

Notes

回想ノスタルジア |  Riminiscent nostalgia”; or if you prefer romaji, “kaisou nostalgia”.

無限に広がる視界 | It’s endless”; a more literal translation is “My field of vision reaches the infinite”. I’ve rewritten it both to fit better the phrase structure and to giving a somehow nicer English translation, since the one I wrote before bugged me a lot.
僅かに触れる | Slightly makes me”; I’ve decided to keep “Nostalgie”, even if maybe translating this phrase as “Slightly I feel nostalgic” would have been better. A random fact; I’ve always thought the lyrics were written as “ノスタルジア” or “ノスタルジ”, since Merami says “nosutaruji” and not as “Nostalgie”. This really surprised me. Anyway, I hope you won’t mind my choice too much~
碧の香りは | The youth scent”; random fact, “碧の香り” is also the title of a song by Yui Makino (Amrita <3). Why do I write this? Because I’ve always found “ao no kaori” written as “青の香り”, except than here and in Yui Makino’s song –anyway, click here if you want to listen to it. It’s a really good song, even if it’s a completely different genre; now I’m really wondering if they did this on purpose or if it’s just a coincidence.

回想ノスタルジア

茜に染まる夕日眺めて
疾風を纏う黒の陽炎

akane ni somaru yuuhi nagamete
hayate wo matou kuro no kagerou

Engulfed into madness, I’m gazing the sunset
I wrap into the wind in this black heat haze

懐かしい風景
護るべき者の為に

natsukashii fuukei
mamoru beki mono no tame ni

Ah, this dear scenery
I have to protect it for people

無限に広がる視界
美しい世界ただ見つめて
かすれた記憶を辿る
僅かに触れるNostalgie

mugen ni hirogaru shikai
utsukushii sekai tada mitsumete
kasureta kioku wo tadoru
wazukani fureru Nostalgie

It’s endless my field of vision
But I’m looking at this beautiful world
The blurred memories I follow
Slightly make me feel this nostalgie

碧の香りはどこか儚く
疾風を誘う空の旅人

ao no kaori wa dokoka hakanaku
hayate wo sasou sora no tabibito

The youth scent is anywhere transient
I ask for a strong wind as a sky’s traveler

穢れなき情景
受け継がれゆく魂

kegarenaki  joukei
uketsugare yuku tamashii

This pure sight
Is taking away my soul

無限に広がる未来
眩い境界ただ描いて
望んだ意識を繋ぐ
明日を紡ぐNostalgie

mugen ni hirogaru mirai
mabayui kyoukai tada egaite
nozonda ishiki wo tsunagu
ashita wo tsumugu Nostalgie

It’s endless this future
However I’m drawing a beautiful boundary
What I desired is tied to me
I reach tomorrow with nostalgie

果て無き光は幻想

hatenaki hikari wa gensou

This endless light is just an illusion

無限に広がる視界
美しい世界ただ見つめて
かすれた記憶を辿る
僅かに触れるNostalgie

mugen ni hirogaru shikai
utsukushii sekai tada mitsumete
kasureta kioku wo tadoru
wazukani fureru Nostalgie

It’s endless my field of vision
But I’m looking at this beautiful world
The blurred memories I follow
Slightly make me feel this nostalgie
