永月夜 ~ UNDEAD CORPORATION

  Requested by Jacob. Notes “永月夜”, “eitsukiyo”, “Imperishable moonlit”. Since UNDEAD CORPORATION usually put tons of references into their songs and the title itself is quite obviously a reference to “東方永夜抄” itself, let’s translate the title in a “Imperishable Night” way. /end of blathering/ Middle/Early Modern/however is it called English probably wasn’t necessary, but I … More 永月夜 ~ UNDEAD CORPORATION

火車の叫ぶ夜に ~ UNDEAD CORPORATION

First C87 translations after more than two months; better late than never I guess. And pkk fits so much. Alternative translation by Shion here. Requested by Entrophy. Notes “火車の叫ぶ夜に”, “kasha no sakebu yoru ni”, “When the Kasha screams at night”. Less liberaly, “The Kasha screams in the night”. For those who missed it, the Kasha … More 火車の叫ぶ夜に ~ UNDEAD CORPORATION

夜ごとの闇の奥底で ~ UNDEAD CORPORATION

Maybe I’ve never said this, but I love the title album. “紅染の鬼が哭く”, “When the Crimson Oni Cries”, truly reminded me of Higurashi’s title –and thus why in my mind I’ve always translated it in that way instead of the more correct “The Crimson Oni Cries”; even if Higurashi’s title is written completely different.

Requested by Wolfkin.

月まで届け、我が怨み ~ UNDEAD CORPORATION

Requested by Sandra Notes “月まで届け、我が怨み”, translated as “Reach for the moon, my grudge”. A pretty obvious “parody” of the original title, “月まで届け、不死の煙”. While transcribing this song I’ve noticed a lot of references to the theme and to Mokou herself, something quite common for UNDEAD CORPORATION. I hope I’ve been able to give back all those … More 月まで届け、我が怨み ~ UNDEAD CORPORATION

からくれなゐ ~ UNDEAD CORPORATION

Not sure if this is the most appropriate illustration, but I didn’t want to take too much time choosing a picture. And anyway, this image is beautiful. Requested by dizzy_c Notes “からくれなゐ | Crimson”; pronounced as “karakurenai”, but written as “karakurenawi”. I still wonder why among all the colors in this world they have chosen … More からくれなゐ ~ UNDEAD CORPORATION
