Fushigi Yuugi - Itooshii Hito No Tame Ni



Densetsu ga ugokidashite The legend is beginning
to unfold.
Hontou no watashi ga The real me unfurls.
hirogaru
Tooku hibiku wo ai ni Distant echoes of
"I Love You"
Anata ni michibikarete Lead me to you.
Mezamete-yuku tamashii Awakening spirits
Hikaridasu mou hitotsu Begin to shine to
no sekai another world.

Itooshii hito no tame ni For the sake of my beloved,
Ima nani ga dekiru ka na? Now what can I do?
Kanawanai yume wa nai yo! There aren't any dreams
that won't come true!
Massugu ni shinjite'ru I truly believe.

Ten to chi no aida ni aru I'm absorbed in the
breath-taking adventure
Mekuru meku bouken That lies between Heaven
ni muchuu and Earth.
Egao misete ni hao ma Smile and say "Hello"
Anata ni mimamorarete Watched over and protected
by you
Ai wa hikaru seiza Love is the shining
constellations.
Omoidasu mou hitotsu I remember another miracle.
no kiseki

Isshou ichido no deai A once in a lifetime
encounter.
Tamashii ni kizan de ne Please engrave it on
your soul.
Donna toki datte ai wa Because I think that
love will
Sukui da to omou kara Always be our salvation.

Itooshii hito no tame ni For the sake of my beloved,
Ima nani ga dekiru ka na? Now what can I do?
Kanawanai yume wa nai yo! There aren't any dreams
that won't come true!
Massugu ni shinjite'ru I truly believe.
First off, I want to be perfectly clear that I do not understand the Japanese language one bit. So I did not translate this one on my own… hence, if there are any errors, I wouldn’t have a clue. This translation was not easy to come by as I’m guessing that it’s not a big thing for people to post a lot of info on anime songs.

Anyway, I haven’t listened to this song in ages. This song was the love theme to a fantastic anime, Fushigi Yuugi. (Side note: Fushigi Yuugi is the absolute best anime I’ve ever seen in my life… I remember watching for the first time several years ago and just getting completely absorbed by the story. I think I watched both seasons of it for two and half days straight through… very long anime!) While I never knew the exact translation word for word of the song, I clearly understood the meaning.

For me, the song is both very assuring and very sad. While the lyrics themselves appear to be very uplifting, the melody is quite somber and even sorrowful… in fact, I think it’s played more during tragic parts of the anime than anywhere else. Anyway it reminds me a bit of my life… I feel that there’s a lot I should be happy about, but there’s always an underlying sadness that I typically keep hidden away.

Anyway, great song and wonderful anime. I highly recommend Fushigi Yuugi to anyone, even if you're not into watching animes. It's just not your typical anime... just an absolutely awesome story!

Did you get rid of all of your links?? For some reason, they're not showing up!

Frank said...

No... they're all still there. If you're using Internet Explorer, it sucks and sometimes distorts the blog... you'll find all the side links near the bottom if that's the case.

I recommend you use Firefox... it is a far superior browser and won't fuck stuff up like Internet Explorer.

I don't like Firefox!! It doesn't open up my email page very well!

Frank said...

Hell... even Netscape will work. IE just flat out sucks!

Good old Fushigi ;) I'm absorbed by several anime... I'm getting them in like oxygen.

Frank said...

LOL! I don't have the time for that, but if I did... :-P
