Tegomasu – Kimi + Boku = LOVE? Lyrics + Translation!


For the past few months, I’ve been wondering when the heck they’re going to release the single for the Lovely Complex anime OP. Sure, the ED has been out for about a month and a half, but why doesn’t the OP get some love? Then I realized the OP was also on the ED single. Oops.

So I figured I’d transcribe and translate the song, since I really like it. Hey, it’s Japanese ska! This one was kind of easy, since the Japanese lyrics are actually included in the OP on the bottom of the screen. I only had to figure out a few of the lyrics in the extended version.

As usual, my translations might be a loose or wrong, or both, so take these with a grain of salt. If you have any suggestions or comments, please let leave a comment below. Anyway, here we go!

Crystal Kay – Konna ni Chikaku de: Lyrics + Translation (?)


The single for Nodame Cantabile anime ED song, Konna ni Chikaku de, is out! I really enjoyed watching the PV, and before this single came out I was forced to play the PV to listen to it.

Right now I have the titular song, Konna ni Chikaku de running on infinite repeat. It’s really freaking good! Plus Crystal Kay is pretty cute. Apparently she’s bilingual in English and Japanese, though she’s actually African American/Korean. Which means her English lines in her songs turn out pretty smooth and not Engrishy.

I tried writing down all the lyrics and translating them to improve my Japanese listening and translating skills. For lyrics I wasn’t sure about, I got help from either Memento’s post or this other one. The translation itself was totally done by me though. I don’t know if that’s something to brag about…
