    Lyrics for this song:
    shizuka ni shizuka ni maku wa kiri otoshi
    kakusei no yoake ni aoi honoo

    Quietly, quietly, night's curtain is being scythed,
    as a sapphire flare appears in the dawn sky of awakening.

    miwatasu kagiri no yami to kattou tesaguri no hibi
    bokura wa make wo shiranai yowasa wo dakishime aruita

    Through these days with nothing but darkness and conflict in view,
    we walked, holding tightly onto our weakness that refused to give in.

    atarashii kiba de jidai wo kizame

    With those brand-new fangs, leave your marks on this era!

    shizuka ni shizuka ni maku wa kiri otoshi
    kakusei no yoake ni aoi honoo
    "Mamoritai anata" ni deaeru sono hi made wa
    yuushuu no bi yori me no mae no teki wo

    Quietly, quietly, night's curtain is being scythed,
    as a sapphire flare appears in the dawn sky of awakening.
    Until the day when I finally meet you, whom I wish to protect,
    rather than wait for that wonderful finale, I'll have to crush my current enemy.

    kokoro nai kotoba hokosaki subete wo nomikomi aruita

    Swallowing down all the sharp thoughtless words, I kept walking,

    tsukareta fushin wa jishin ni neji mage

    bending forcefully my effete mistrust into self-confidence.

    kurushikute nigetakute ma ga sashita mirai wa
    yume egaita bokura to tooi tokoro de
    jikan nante yoso nante kechirashite hohoenda
    ano koro nani mo kowaku nakattaro?

    The runaway future, having succumbed to the pains,
    is now at a place faraway from us, who are still sketching our dreams.
    We used to not care about time or place, and laugh wholeheartedly;
    back then, there was nothing for us to fear, right?

    shizuka ni shizuka ni maku wa kiri otoshi
    kakusei no yoake ni aoi honoo
    "Mamoritai anata" ni deaeru sono hi made wa
    yuushuu no bi yori me no mae no teki wo

    Quietly, quietly, night's curtain is being scythed,
    as a sapphire flare appears in the dawn sky of awakening.
    Until the day when I finally meet you, whom I wish to protect,
    rather than wait for that wonderful finale, I'll have to crush my current enemy.

    itoshikute itoshikute hoka ni wa nani mo nakute
    koko kara miwatashita keshiki zenbu
    matomete tsureteitte ageru sa hanasanai de
    zutto nari yamanu ranbu no merodi

    I love you, I love you, and that's all there is.
    I will collect and pack together everything I see here,
    and bring it all to you, so please do not leave me.
    The melody of the wild dance resounds endlessly.

Black History Month with Anime

Today is the last day of February, one of the shortest months of the year, and one that is filled with two holidays. Since I've already addressed Valentine's Day, I thought I'd take the time to talk a little bit about Black History Month. As you may or may not know, Black History Month is a holiday that is present in North America. It's a way to remember, celebrate, and appreciate the history of African-Americans. Instead of doing the normal way of celebrating, I thought I'd combine anime with this holiday as a way to bring awareness, and to share a few of my thoughts as well. I've done a post on diversity in anime  before, and discussed a few of my thoughts on race and physical differences when it comes to characters. Since anime doesn't necessarily list off the races of their characters, it's a little hard to celebrate a certain ethnic group using anime. Although others have found ways to do that, one featuring African-American themed cosplay , I

Learning Japanese Using Anime! Words of Advice

Learning Japanese isn't really an easy feat. The language has a lot of vocab, there's three forms of writing, and not to mention grammar. So while being an otaku, it's easy to turn to anime as a form of education. Since we watch it all the time, why not pick up a few things from it? However, there's a few things you need to watch out for. Watch Out for "Personalized" Forms of Speaking In the Japanese language, there are many ways to address yourself and others. The common word for talking about ourselves is Watashi. However, there are different ways to do this. Another word commonly heard in anime is Boku. We can use this word when we are male speakers. If we are female speakers, we would use the word atashi. While this isn't limited to these set gender roles, saying boku as a female would give a tomboyish image; atashi as a male would seem feminine. We've also experienced other types of this speech. If you're familiar with Narut

Maybe you're running a Tumblr blog and want to keep it active, but you can't be bothered to find and download pictures by searching all the boorus?
