    Default Higurashi no Naku Koro ni - Higurashi no Naku Koro ni

    http://www.animelyrics.com/anime/hig...urashinnkn.htm

    A couple lines of the translation bug me -

    この指止まれ 私の指に
    その指ごと 連れてってあげる
    Take these fingers, my fingers
    I'll take all your fingers away
    "この指止まれ" as I understand it is a phrase children use in games to mean "follow me!" or "Come here [and play with me]!" I think it's an important distinction in the context of this series and this song... I would probably translate these lines as more like:

    Follow my finger
    And I'll take you by the fingers

    ...but I wonder if that really conveys that expression? The translator caught the reference to kids games in the second chorus, so this one should match. Plus these lines are just so creepy I'd like to see them done right.

    Not another one of these "famous songs that got done by one-hit wonder translators"... The other day I was trying to think of ways to address this problem.

    Since they don't check back anyways, let's just replace the translation.

    祝! 『禁断の病棟』 アニメ化!

    Yes, I seem to have a talent for finding songs like this... how's this? I'll keep their footnote and add my own to the other line.

    What was behind me when I turned around (Who's in front?)
    I raised my nails to the darkness (And slashed the night)

    Raindrops become drops of blood
    And stream down my cheeks
    If there's no place anywhere that you can return to now...

    Follow my finger [1]
    And I'll take you by the fingers
    To the forbidden forest where cicadas cry
    You can no longer turn back

    One by one, they disappear (the blue flames)
    Beyond the darkness (the morning no longer comes)

    Countless hands squirm and reach out from the mirror
    Come, lure someone here

    Ogre-san, come here, where I clap my hands [2]
    No matter how you escape, I will catch you
    From the animal tracks where cicadas cry
    The voice I heard is no longer there

    Follow my finger [1]
    And I'll take you by the fingers
    To the forbidden forest where cicadas cry
    You can no longer turn back

    Ogre-san, come here, where I clap my hands [2]
    No matter how you escape, I will catch you
    From the animal tracks where cicadas cry
    The voice I heard is no longer there

    [1] Literally "stop at my finger", this expression is used by children to gather others for a game (i.e. tag)
    [2] In one of the traditional Japanese children's play, the "Oni" covers his or her eyes with a blindfold, and tries to catch the other players just by the sound of their hands clapping. This line is repeatedly said by the other players to encourage the "Oni" to come and try to get them.
