LYRICS::

enbi zaka no katasumi ni aru shitate ya no wakaki onna shujin

ENGLISH::

Sitting on a corner of Enbizaka is
A young woman and her little tailor shop.
A sweet girl with great skill in her discipline,
She’s well known throughout the neighborhood.

However, something has troubled her as of late,
And that would be how unfaithful her lover was.
“Even though he has someone special like me,
He never comes home; how untrue can he be?”

Even so, I must devote myself to the task at hand.
I grip my sewing scissors fiercely.
These scissors of my mother’s may be quite old, but
The more you sharpen them, the better they cut.

Today the town is serene and peaceful,
It’s calm and pleasant just like usual.
I spotted him at the main street on this fine day,
But that woman beside him; Exactly who is she?

She looked gorgeous in that red kimono,
And he seemed pleased with the woman’s company.
The sight of those two walking together sickened me,
So my response was to turn on the spot and flee.

Even so, I must devote myself to the task at hand.
I grip my sewing scissors fiercely.
Heartbroken with cheeks soaked by tears of sorrow,
I tailor the kimono diligently.

Today the atmosphere is strangely tense
It seems a murder has put the town on edge
This time I saw him idling nearby the bridge
But that woman beside him; Exactly who is she?

I wanted to ease that depressed look off his face,
But the angelic haired girl was there, consoling him.
That green sash looks truly stunning on her.
Ah, I guess that’s the type he has a preference for.

Even so, I must devote myself to the task at hand.
I grip my sewing scissors fiercely.
Eyes red and swollen from all the tears that were shed,
I tailor the sash laid out in front of me.

The town has become even more restless overnight,
For another crime seems to have broken out.
Today I recognized him at the hairpin shop.
Whoever might that girl standing next to him be?

He bought a yellow hairpin for that darling girl,
That girl who was too young to be suitable.
What in the world was going through his head?
He really has no decency, how shameless!

Even so, I must devote myself to the task at hand.
I grip my sewing scissors furiously.
Strange, did my scissors used to look this way?
Like always, I’ve worked hard again today.

At long last I’ve finished work
If you still refuse to return
To my loving side where you belong,
Then I suppose I’ll have to come searching for you.

A scarlet kimono with an emerald sash
Aureate hairpin, delicately worn
With these, I’m now the type of girl you like
What do you think? Aren’t I beautiful?

Today the whole town is in a panic;
This time, it was a man that had fell victim.
It looks like a whole family of four was killed,
All in the past couple days, how very sad.

Besides that, he was acting so dreadful.
“Good afternoon, it’s a pleasure to meet you.”
He spoke as if he were talking to someone new,
Like I was a complete stranger.

Even so, I must devote myself to the task at hand.
I grip my sewing scissors shakily.
These scissors of mine are now dyed crimson red.
The more you sharpen them, the better they cut.

5 Vocaloid Cosplays That WILL Make You Jealous!

Vocaloid cosplay is fun, beautiful, and oh so broad. There are so many characters, each with tons of variations. I’m not saying these are the best to ever grace the internet, but they are damn good!

(In no particular order)

1. Hatsune Miku – Love is War by Kirana

From Cosplay.com

This entire photoshoot is gorgeous. From the setting, to the cosplayer, to the cosplay itself. The wig is fantastic. The cosplay itself is really well done. It seems to me that the cosplays that I love the most are all done by people in Eastern Europe. ^_^

2. Kagamine Rin – Meltdown (Hard Rock  Version) by K_i_t_a_n_a

From cosplay.com

Another cosplayer from Eastern Europe! 🙂 The first thing I thought was “Holy Crap!” This is so incredibly detailed. The guitar is beautiful, the boots, the wig, everything! I also adore the photography and the setting for the photoshoot. Completely makes the cosplay.

3. Megurine Luka by akari1864

From cosplay.com

This cosplay is very nicely detailed and is accurate to the original. She even has a face that fits Luka perfectly! I love how well the cosplay fits her. All in all, this is just extremely well done. For the entire shoot, click here.

4. Meiko – Hagane Version by jingggg

From cosplay.com

Even though there are limited photos for this cosplay, this is such an awesome cosplay. Myself, I am a huge fan of the Hagane version of Meiko. However, I had seen a couple pictures of cosplays for the Hagane version, and they never seemed to get the corset just right. This cosplay, though, got it spot-on perfect. I also love the picture that is pose is based off, and it just blows my mind that she got the entire cosplay perfect. You should also look at the shot of the entire Hagane Vocaloid group she was with (Found here), it is FANTASTIC.

5. Kaito by chancake

From cosplay.com

This is a really cute cosplay! I love the wig a lot and everything is perfectly accurate! 🙂 The photoshoot has a lot of other great shots as well so check that out! 🙂

LYRICS::

hai to kasu eikō mai oriru yami ni
somari ochiru sekijaku no karuma
urei o dai te mata tachi agaru no
sōkoku no hate ni nanimo mie naku temo

I am always alone…

taihai no furawā chimamire no memorīzu
eien ni meguri meguru yōni
dōkoku no furawā kiza mareta mizarī
nido towa kaera nai seijaku

kuri kaesu haisō saigo ni mita yume wa
owari no nai monokuro no bijon
kotae mo naku usure yuku chikai
risei saemo saihate ni shizumu

shikkoku no furawā bōkyaku no memorīzu
sai tewa chiru mizō no hana
konton no furawā kuri kaesu mizarī
hikari no kieta kono niwa de

taihai no furawā chimamire no memorīzu
eien ni meguri meguru yōni
dōkoku no furawā kiza mareta mizarī
nido towa kaera nai seijaku

owa rase te kono fuhai shita sekai no ayamachi o
Before this world is over now…
kono te ni nokotta mono wa Ash of flower…

ENGLISH::

Glory has turned to ash that swoops down into darkness
Straining everything into a deep crimson karma
I’m lost in sadness, still trying to pick myself up
Though the war ended, you cannot see a single thing

I am always alone

The decaying flowers and the blood-filled memories
Just like a cycle, they keep going round and round
Lamenting of flowers and the graven miseries
It is the point of no return of our silence

Paths keep repeating, the last dream that I had was this:
A never ending monochrome dark vision
There are no answers to these fading vows of ours
Reason is sinking into the deep oblivion

The darkness of the flowers and forgotten memories
Unprecedented flowers bloom and they die
The chaotic flowers and repeating miseries
The light has turned into darkness in this garden

The decaying flowers and the blood-filled memories
Just like a cycle, they keep going round and round
Lamenting of flowers and the graven miseries
It is the point of no return of our silence

Please end the wrongs of this rotten world we’re in,
Lead us to the light once again
Before this world is over now
In my hand now, the thing that’s left is ash of a flower
