Ranko’s blog post [07/01/2019]

A translation of the second part of Ranko’s newest blog post from the fanclub. She talks about the newest released vocal albums. This time, she commented on all the tracks!

Warning: I tried my best, but I’m aware that some parts don’t sound really good. I want to wait before adding each comment to their respective song page. Special thanks to Jordi, who helped me a lot with the Guerrilla part!!

Tr.1 Kiiroi Hana
I imagined brightness and kindess as I sang it. It’s yellow and I think this song is bright golden yellow-ish.
I think this song is very easy to sing, there is speed and it’s BUTAOTOME-ish/Ranko-ish.
The lyrics are by Comp, but I like the part in the second refrain.

Tr.2 Biroodo
This is a brighter, hotter song than Kiiroi Hana. Uhm, I can imagine myself running to something like a sport’s festival while the refrain is playing (?)
The first verse was fun to sing.
I like the lyrics of the second refrain of this song, too.
“Let me say thank you to the day I can say thank you”

Tr.3 Yokoshima na Honoo
This is my favourite song. When I noticed it, it was playing in my brain and I hummed it.
It’s written and arranged by Paprika. I call it Shabadaba.
I like the original Nuclear Fusion so much that it is in my top 3. It was hard, but fun to sing. I thought about how to sing the first verse, I followed the melody of the second verse.
I like the piano in the verses in the second part~~~
I think Okuu is cute~.

Tr.4 Chitei no Rakuen
I wrote the lyrics. It’s an arrangement of Wataru mono no Todaeta Hashi.
This is about the 3rd time I’ve written lyrics about Parsee, but since the song is bright, I thought about writing from a different viewpoint from the usual, and it became like this.
It’s not like I can just freely force things like characters and variations. It’s that sort of song.

Tr.5 Yumeyuki
I wrote lyrics for this one, too.
Since it’s an arrangement of Chireitachi no Kitaku and Energy Reimei, it’s from the viewpoint of Koishi looking at Reimu and Marisa coming back to their home after the incident resolution.
It has a very lonely feeling, but I wondered if there might be such a world line, and I wrote about it.
When I think about Koishi-chan, I feel like I’m falling into a deep swamp…

Tr.6 Hitotsubu no Kiseki
I like this track too~~~ I think it’s an arrangement with an unusual feeling that somehow sounds like a choral song, but I wonder what you do think about it.
Every time I sing there is a discovery, or better yet I still have a long way to go, so I hope to practice a lot and I can do this one live one day… that’s how I feel.
In the past I was aware of not being good at this type of song, but now I want to explore what I cannot express as I want.
It’s a nice song~

Tr.7 Chinpu Story
It’s an arrange of Chireitachi no Kishou and Kurayami no Fuuketsu. I wrote the lyrics. It’s from Reimu-san’s viewpoint.
This time I was a bit conscious of writing the lyrics for the first and last songs of Subterranean Animism.
In this song the lyrics are as they are, but the story begins. It has speed. The sound of the synth is good.

Tr.8 Atsuki Seikan
Bright! Hot! Refreshing!
I imagined running, jumping, jumping over the wall.
The last part in the refrain has a bit of a high moment, so that was a wall LOL
I like this song, with this title that’s somehow lovely.


Tr.1 Unmei no Wa
Isn’t this arrangement freaking cool?! It has an exciting feeling after the intro, it’s awesome.
With it becoming faster, I sang it with a much stronger sense in mind, while still following the original song and singing style. I want to do it live.

Tr.2 Shi
It has a faster or perhaps stronger feeling over the original song. The refrain of this one is surprisingly easy to sing, and it feels good to sing it. I also love the way I sang the “nwooo” part in the second verse.

Tr.3 Ondeko no Namida
I really like the contrast between the laid-back feeling of the first part, and the “Oof”-feeling of the second part.
I used falsetto in some parts of the refrain, but I’m thinking to myself that I like singing like this. The synth in the outro is lonesome – I like it.

Tr.4 Tsumi to Batsu
This oneeeeeeeeeeeee was the hardest song in Guerrillaaaaaaaa!!!!!!
It’s fast. So fast. Fast-talking. I wrote the lyrics myself, but now I want to ask my past self why I sang the lyrics in such a difficult way.
The bass is cool. I also like the development of the pre-chorus.

Tr.5 Gekokujoujou
I sang it for a long time, but aren’t both this song and this arrangemenent really good? I thought this while singing.
It was especially fun to record while thinking about how to sing the first verses~

Tr.6 Rougetsu
The fast song got even faster!!!! That’s the feel. The speed is amazing.
Since I sang it live many times, I was able to sing it without any fail.

Tr.7 Chuudou Hokou
I like this arrange! It’s good, isn’t it?
I’m satisfied because I properly sang “icchihankai”.
I changed my way of singing a bit here too, but I’m pleased with it.

Tr.8 Utakata
It’s a fast and strong Utakata. This one too was difficult…
Again, the way I sung my own lyrics… LOL
But I want to do it live because it’s cool~
It might be interesting as from the intro you don’t know which version you’re listening to ( ¨̮ )
