View Full Version : Lyrics with kanji AND Russian...???

12-15-2011, 11:48 PM
The song in question is "зима", or "Winter" in Russian. As may be obvious by now, it's one of Russia's character songs from the anime "Hetalia: Axis Powers". I want to submit both of his songs, but I'm unsure how. Do I post the original Russian lyrics with the rest of the Japanese kanji, along with the romaji and the Russian pronunciations in caps like I would if it were in English?

Here's a small excerpt of the original:



In the "Main or Romaji lyrics" section, I assume I would put:

Fubuku sanaka
Mushibamu LUNA
Obiedasu kaze

Sarasu hon'nou
Boku wa ugokidasu…!

...and so on. Would this be correct? Or is there a different format for songs that include languages other than English? Thanks.

I don't think you need to capitalize them. You could if you want, though. It's your choice.

Alright, thanks. I was just wondering what format would be the easiest to understand. Plus I've never really seen a song with a language that didn't use either Japanese or English lyrics, so I was a bit confused. Thanks again though. ^^

Actually, I think Rizuchan said she wanted to do this song.
I'd better leave this song to her if she confirms her intention to translate this song.

I had intended on doing this song for the challenge. Normally I wouldn't care and I'd say go for it but my list is still so short, I won't have anything to do... :sweatdrop Thank you for leaving it for me!

Ah, I don't know if you'd want to do Pechka Kokoro Tomoshite, but if you do, be my guest. Otherwise I may or may not do that one too...

For now I shall leave both of them alone :)
