hey guys!!!

Thanks masa, as always

However,

in the first verse of the romaji you are missing part of the last line!!!! :O

I was listening and following the lyrics, and you missed some out, which also helps explain why the japanese is 5 lines and the english is 6.

Obviously my japanese is not great but the bit you're missing may sound something like this:

Quote:
Suki na tokoro narabedashita ra
[ikura jikan ga ano te no] kiri ga nai yo
can someone (masa?) please confirm how the romaji for the missing bit should be written? and also confirm the english translation is still complete?

Please? lyrics are very important to me >.< !!!

Thanks so much!


[EDIT]

Sorry I was in such a rush to find the 'missing bit' I didn;t properly check the whole thread. I see someone already suggested it should be:

Quote:
Suki na tokoro narabedashita ra
[ikura jikan ga anata mo] kiri ga nai yo
is that right?

the word you're looking for is SCRUNCH (or scrunch up)

Hm, smiling with a crumpled face sounds like that would fit, but a "crumpled face" doesn't sound right to me for some reason. Maybe we could use the word wrinkle here? oji-i-san, we need you~ Haha.
scrunched is used more for faces than crumpled.

still think scrunched may be better for a smiling face.

Kodomo mitai ni kyuu ni futekusare tari toka
Namidamoroi toko toka
Suki na tokoro narabedashita ra ikura jikan ga anata mo kiri ga nai yo
Thanks, can we get confirmation on this bit please?

It's so bad. It shows that "slanted eyes" has the opposite meaning to the original lyrics. I change the part again like this.

You smile broadly and innocently
Happily with down-slanting eyes
sorry but both these don't sound right to me :/

slant eyed, or even down slanting, just gives me the impression of slanting. ie: like this \ or this /
so slant eyed is pointing out she's asian? lol.

i think if the lyric is describing that when they smile their cheeks raise, and their eyes do that manga style smiley eyes ^^, then you're closest bet may be simply to use SQUINT.

squint means narrowing the eyes, like when you strain to see something, but it also is used to describe this kind of smile.

so a line like "squinty-eyed smile", captures the expression quite well i think.

although how you phrase it may need some more thought.

but yeah.

scrunched is the best word for scrunching up your face, but may more often be used for unhappy faces or disgust, or disapproval,

squint definitely captures the squinty eyed smile, and gives a better idea of the expression than scrunched (or the other words considered).

I vote squint! ^^

(sorry for long post)

I agree that slanted eyes / down-slanting eyes are not good here.
haha, maybe i should've said it very clearly in my #39 post.

as for the missing romaji, I believe the line I wrote in my #37 post is correct. I'm happy if you could kindly give me any comments to my translation. I guess I'm on the side of a little liberal/free translation for this time. thank you!

To: creoh & jon the d

Suki na tokoro narabedashita ra
Ikura jikan ga atte mo kiri ga nai yo

This is the complete lyrics. Actually, I failed to write the phrase and that I didn't notice it. Sorry. I corrected the part. The translation doesn't change.

As for the translation of the first stanza, I'm rather confused. I need some thinking time.

"Mejiri o sageru" --- / \

Thanks masa!

I'll try to think about the best way to phrase the first stanza too...

is this: / \ the representation of the eyes and the expression that ayu is describing?

Yes, so.

mejiri = the outer corner of the eye
sageru = make it down

SPANISH VERSION BY JAOMARU @ayuchile.com

ESPAÑOL

Tu amplia e inocente sonrisa,
alegremente, con la vista caída,
súbitamente, te disgustas como un niño,
fácilmente eres llevado a las lágrimas,
si enumero lo que me gusta de tí
la lista sigue y sigue, por todo el tiempo que pueda tener...

* Se tu mismo siempre, no cambies,
Se natural, quédate como eres,
Aaaah, quiere todo lo que tienes,
Porque tu eres el único.
Supongo que este sentimiento es,
Sin duda, lo que la gente llama amor...

Hubo un incidente
Que puedo hacer ahora en una historia divertida
Hubo un incidente
que me rompe el corazón, incluso ahora, si sólo recuerdo un poco

Cada uno de mi sin número de recuerdos
Me enseña gentilmente

** No necesito palabras, sólo quédate a mi lado
Si estás cerca mío, estaré muy bien
Aaaah, seguro lo que siento ahora
es difuso, pero
Supongo que este sentimiento es,
Sin duda, lo que la gente llama amor...

Cada uno de mi sin número de recuerdos
Me enseña gentilmente

* Se tu mismo siempre, no cambies,
Sé natural, quédate como eres,
Aaaah, quiere todo lo que posees,
Porque eres el único y uno
Supongo que este sentimiento es,
Sin duda lo que la gente llama amor

** No necesito palabras, sólo quédate a mi lado
Si estás cerca mío, estaré muy bien
Aaaah, seguro lo que siento ahora
es difuso, pero
Supongo que este sentimiento es
Sin duda lo que la gente llama amor
