Discovering Plastic Love: The J-Pop Tune That Went Viral ...
Posted: (1 months ago) The lyrics of the song point to a regret of superficiality and the disingenuous nature of material culture. “Plastic Love” highlights the inauthenticity of a romantic relationship because of one person’s self-centeredness and the consequences of such a bond breaking apart. A few verses from the song highlight this dilemma:
The Road to Learning Japanese: Dealing with Burnout ...
Posted: (16 days ago) (Cue all the goofing off that ensued.) One evening, though, I started listening to a bunch of Japanese songs that I had discovered when I was younger. Listening to them brought back those old feelings of when I first came across Japanese music. I still loved those songs, and I still wanted to understand the lyrics to them.
Adaptation Analysis: Utada's Hikari vs. Simple And Clean ...
Posted: (1 months ago) Then, she allows time to pass, and while her feelings for him grow, he hasn’t made any progression. I, of course, don’t know what Utada was considering when she translated the lyrics and adapted them into “Simple And Clean,” but it’s definitely an interesting theory.
Remembering Izumi Sakai and Zard (Song Selection) » Yatta ...
Posted: (12 days ago) Remember above when I said Sakai wrote song lyrics for other bands? Field of View was one of them. “DAN DAN Kokoro Hikareteku” usually translates to “Bit by Bit, You’re Charming My Heart.” That Izumi Sakai ended up covering a song that she wrote for another group is an interesting twist.
Ichirou Mizuki Song Selections » Yatta-Tachi
Posted: (12 days ago) Just like Hironobu Kageyama and Isao Sasaki, the artist I am covering today has a long career in Japanese pop culture.Ichirou Mizuki is known affectionately as “Aniki” or “Big-bro” in the anime song community.He is also known as the King of Anime Songs, the counterpart to Mitsuko Horie who holds the title of the Queen of Anime Songs.
Kyuu Sakamoto and Ue o Muite Arukou (Sukiyaki) » Yatta-Tachi
Posted: (10 days ago) The lyrics tell the story of someone who looks up while walking so that tears do not fall. S/he remembers nights of loneliness, perhaps a metaphor for being abandoned by the Japanese government. Or it may simply be Ei’s way of writing love story-like lyrics that are better suited for the masses.
Hironobu Kageyama Song Selections » Yatta-Tachi
Posted: (1 months ago) Some say Hironobu Kageyama is THE anime singer (I did). Why not? He is one of the most illustrious shounen anime, games, and tokusatsu show singers to date. Though I am very sure you have heard of at least one song from him, or his band, JAM Project, I want to introduce you to a few others.
Throwback Thursday: The Rose of Versailles - Bara wa ...
Posted: (12 days ago) The Rose of Versailles was a very influential story in the history of shojo manga.Ryoko Ikeda, the author, took liberties with how historical figures such as Marie Antoinette, Axel von Fersen, and Louis XVI are portrayed in the story. Marie Antoinette seems to have received the biggest change of all as she is depicted to be innocent, flighty, and sweet in contrast to the real historical figure.
Dragon Ball Super: Broly Review [Minor Spoilers] » Yatta-Tachi
Posted: (1 months ago) This movie is really for fans who have followed the series for years. I also found the music to be a bit cheesy at times. There are two songs where the lyrics just scream either Broly’s or Gogeta’s name in a way that’s supposed to hype the fights, but come off as trying too hard.
Starting Over (Again): The Road to Learning Japanese ...
Posted: (17 days ago) Haha, your goals are perfectly fine! I don’t think I always wanted to be a translator. I really got into Japanese culture because of the music, so I just wanted to be able to understand what people were singing about without looking up translated lyrics. Still not quite there yet, but someday…
