    Default Friend Shitai

    https://www.animelyrics.com/anime/ga...iendshitai.htm

    Spoilers for the anime Gakkou Gurashi.

     

    Gakkou Gurashi is an anime that starts by pretending to be a cutesy school-life anime. Then, at the end of the first episode, it drops the twist that they're living in the school because the school is barricaded against a zombie apocalypse outside it.

    Up until that point, it drops a lot of hints that it's actually a zombie apocalypse anime, and this includes its opening song, Friend Shitai.

    The title and first stanza take advantage of "shitai" meaning both "want to" and "corpse":

    ふ・れ・ん・ど・し・た・い

    シタイから!
    シタイなら!
    シタイとき!
    シタイでしょ!?
    いっしょに!
    Can be interpreted innocently:

    I Want a Friend

    I want it!
    If you want it!
    It's time to want it!
    Don't you want it?
    All together now!
    But it can also be interpreted:

    Friend Corpse

    It's a corpse!
    If it's a corpse!
    It's corpse time!
    Isn't it a corpse?
    All together now!
    This should be mentioned in the translation notes.

    If you can write a concise (a few lines) explaination of exactly what you want written in the comments, I can put it in.


    I just personally worry that as you say, it's a spoiler, so it should be omitted as you can't mark spoilers in the notes. Maybe we can just add a link to this post in the comments with a note "further/alternative analysis of lyrics in context of the anime here". @EJTranslations , please could you advise?
