Fukanzen Nenshou

I’ve always wanted to translate this song. It really resonates for me with its resignation and non-emo grimness. The translations that I’ve seen elsewhere are also various shades of bad, which isn’t helped by the daunting complexity of the task. The phrasing of some lines in this song will possibly remain a WIP forever.

Shylpeed

I wrote a couple of waka about World of Warships, but basically every patch since I started playing made the game worse. So fuck that.

I’m not dead!

I’ll make changes to this TL over the next days to improve the phrasing, but I needed this to motivate myself.

bermei.inazawa / feat.霜月はるか – 泰東ノ翠霞

No idea why this uses the modern な instead of なる, and all the adjectives are modern too, so this is a bit of a hodgepodge.

Yukikaze. Man, I feel like the pathos is oozing from my screen.

Souya-kaikyou Fuyu Geshiki

This is Hibiki’s song. The title references Souya Strait between Hokkaido and Sakhalin, north of present-day Japan. The astute will realize which part of Hibiki’s history this is about.

Haruka Tooki

This is the first song on a KanColle doujin album called 陽はまた昇る (The Sun Will Rise Again). It has some big names in the doujin scene on vocals, but most importantly it has a number of songs with excessively grandiose and pompous lyrics that make absolutely no attempt to hide that they are about KanColle and World War II. I think they’re hilarious, and most of them are obviously not meant seriously.

Oh, this is Akagi’s song.
