Today my friend Jeff posted on Shonen Knife, and they are pretty cool, but my heart will always meruto for Hatsune Miku, because she’s my kind of pop star and favorite “anime phenomenon.” She proves that virtual gals have a spot … maybe a spotlight … in the material world. La, la, la, la, la, la, la/ la, la, la, la, la, la, la/ la, la,la, la, la!
MERUTO iki ga tsumarisou
kimi ni fureteru migite ga furueru
takanaru mune hanbun kono kasa
te wo nobaseba todoku kyori doushiyou…!
omoi yo todoke kimi ni
onegai jikan wo tomete nakisou nano
demo ureshikute shinde shimau wa!
Melt – I can hardly breathe
My hand, touching yours, is trembling
My heart is racing under this half of the umbrella
If you should stretch out your hand to close the distance, what’ll I do…?!
My feelings will reach you
It’s time to stop wishing, I feel like I’m gonna cry
And yet, I’m so happy I could die!
