    Default Konoyubitomare - LAST ALLIANCE

    Hi everyone, I'm new. I've been learning the Japanese language for the past few months and feel like I might be at the point where I can start translating lyrics...

    So first up is a LAST ALLIANCE song that I always really liked, but could never find a translation for.

    I definitely took some liberties with the english translation in trying to make sense of the Japanese words and my grammar is definitely not up to snuff, so let me know if you think I've deviated too much from the original meaning...

    Konoyubitomare (Follow Me) - LAST ALLIANCE

    I think you have a very good knowledge of Japanese. Just need more practice with translating. A major problem I'm seeing is that you tend to translate each line individually while overlooking the main idea of the whole stanza. This so-called line-by-line translation is not really the best way to go.

    Btw, you should take the Japanese test on the site (and hopefully pass) and put up the translation for this song. =)



    うざったそうにこちらを見ていた
    先客の三毛猫に挨拶してそこに座る
    As if I was too noisy, the cat already sitting on the bench glared at me,
    so I greeted it, and then sat down right next to it.


    さらに大きく笑い声響く
    同じ空、同じ雲に
    And then, loud laughter echoed
    across the same sky, same clouds.


    昼休みのチャイムが止み
    街の雑音ではいまだ続く
    The noon recess's bell chime stops,
    but the town's noise continues on


    「はい、一抜けた」
    "Okay, peace out, guys."


    先客の寝息は続く
    The breathing of the sleeping cat continues on
    * 先客 refers back to the cat from the beginning of the song


    夢や希望、不安や絶望の種類は千差万別
    でも見上げりゃ同じ空、同じ雲
    There are countless types of dreams, hopes, anxieties, and despairs,
    but when we look up, we see the same sky and same clouds



    争いで得た優越感に居場所見つけてれば
    稲中読んでも笑えない
    If you can only climb to the top and achieve a sense of superiority by means of fighting,
    then not even reading the Inechuu manga can make you laugh heartily.


    追い抜かれたら拍手で見送ろう
    きっとそいつは僕より少し
    歯を食いしばってきたんだろう
    If I should be overtaken by someone else, I would happily see him off with applause,
    for surely, he was only able to do so
    because he clenched his teeth harder than me and with more determination.


    いつまでも舌打ちして不平不満を重ねても
    不公平は一つもない
    No matter how long you keep complaining about unfairness,
    nothing is ever truly unfair in this world.


    赤と青が混じっていた頃
    無邪気にしていた追いかけっこなら
    奪い合い、傷つけ合うような
    くだらない世界は変わるんだ
    When the red and blue have gathered together,
    and innocently play a game of tag,
    then even this stupid world,
    where people steal from and hurt each other, will start to change.


    公園灯の形の影が西の空に消えかけてゆく
    The street light's shadow in the park slowly vanishes into the western sky


    突き上げた人差し指に少年達の声が重なった
    The boys' voices stacked up onto that raised index finger


    雑音はこの冴えない歌、シンガロングでもして掻き消そう
    Let's erase the noises by making them the chorus of this dull song


    もし踏み外せない理由あるのなら先急げばいいさ
    If you can't stop for a game, then feel free to run ahead.


    だから「KONOYUBITOMARE」
    So "THOSE WHO WANT TO PLAY, ASSEMBLE!"

    Whoah, thanks for the input (and total revamp of my translation, haha)...I'll give the test a shot.
