Tipsy Takes — Songs from Anime that Make Me Feel Stuff

Caution: As you might have guessed, this is the second installment of Tipsy Takes. I’m tipsy. My hair is still pink. Read the first post on Karnaval here. I love spell check. Haha.

Sober notice: All comments written after I’ve regained my composure look like, well… this!

Song #1:

Let’s be honest; if you’ve watched Banana Fish and you can get through this OP without low-key sobbing, I don’t even know who you are. Someone more emotionally stalwart than I am, that’s for sure. “Then you appeared in front of me. You ignited my pale heart.” HE IGNITED HIS PALE HEART. I’m wounded!!

I took a break to cuddle with Husband on my office pink and white fuzzy soft rug. I said “I love you,” and he said, “Hi,” because he knew it would bother me. Time for the next song!

Song #2:

He’s SCREAMING. He’s SCREAMING, guys. This song made me SOB. I could not contain it. I became so obsessed that I REWROTE it in ENGLISH with a winter/spring/summer motif. I’m serious. I’m so freaking proud of it. But anyway, the original gave me such heartbreak that I had to translate it into something more accessible for me. Now when I hear it, my lyrics run in my head, but that doesn’t mean I don’t ADORE THE ORIGINAL. Gosh. I’m just so freaking emotional even just typing about it. “YOUR LIFE WAS LOST TO WINTER’S EDGE, AND YOU’VE NO MORE TOMORROWS!!!” “WITHOUT GOODBYE, MY CLOSURE PLUCKED, HOW CAN I STILL EXPECT TO GROW??”

“THERE’S BEEN A DROUGHT LEFT LINGERING HERE SINCE THE DAY YOU WENT AWAAAAYYYYY~~~~”

…you guys wanna read it?

Okay, so typing is getting more difficult. I’m serious. But that’s fine. I’m being very careful. 😉

SONG #3:

I write to this music anytime I need to focus on feelings, because it gives me feelings. I’m a person who has a lot of (read: maybe too many) feelings, so I don’t presume to speak for everyone, but you should close your eyes, listen to this song, and then go watch Hakuouki. Seriously. Give it a few episodes. Season 2 is amazing. Dang it, I’m on the Hakuouki soap box again.

I had to retype like every third word in that last paragraph and this isn’t going much better, because there isn’t a “t” in “paragraph,” fingers, and there IS an “n” in “fingers” which is also not written as “ingers.” *shrug*

Hehe. I’m being such a careful typist.

SONG #4:

Here’s another one just because everyone in that show [redacted because spoiler], and I need a minute. I also write to this one.

Song #5

Do you need to cry? Because I can help you with that. “Rebirth, reincarnation, love and hate remains vague.” AND IT HAS AN ENGLISH VERSION THAT HURTS ME EVEN MORE. YES.

“BENEATH THE SUN, DO HEARTS ENDURE?? THEIR RHYTHM, THEIR BEATING, UNSURE. TO WANT, TO FOLLOW. SELFLESS STRUMS ARE HEARD. IN THE SILENCE, A DREAM COMES UNDONE.”

I’m broken, for sure.

No, I mean beacaus of the music. I know what you’r ethingkning.

Let me try to retype that. I was doing to so good. “No, I mean, because of the music. I know what you’re thinking.” Not because I’m me. *insert Wei Ying grin here*

Sober notice: I’ll insert it myself now, lol.

Before I do the next song, I wanna say that I also translated this one and worked really hard on it and loved every second of it, but not a whole lot of people cared but that’s OKAY. And also Tumblr liked it more?

Oh no, I’ve reached the point I’m ADHD shaking my arms. Crap. *shrug again*

Sober notice: I ended up going with a song unrelated to the above rant. Oops. Lol. I didn’t even realize… well, it’s Tipsy Takes for a reason.

Song # Hold on I have to ocheck, 6:

So I was getting really sad and decided to go another direction, because PUMPED is a feeling, too. I bop every time I hear this song. I fail every one of those “try not to sing/dance” challenges that includes this because it is a JAM. It’s so energizing. AND

AND

It has an English version. Well, a few of them. Here are some of my favorites. Jonathan Young bops, too.

Fun fact, once Amalee said we were soul sisters. I kid you not. AX2017 was a TRIP. I wanna go back. When we’re not all risking death. You know. 🙂

“PIERCING THE SKY WITH SILENT VENGEANCE!”

Song #7:

I don’t care what you say, it’s NOT freaking overdone. Tokyo Ghoul is one of those titles that brought me away from exclusively “girly” shows, and I cried over it and was also disgusted and had FEELINGS I need to get back t oabout it. I’m trying really hard to type and do this justice.

Also, I love to sing this in Engish, and also again, I saw some like 12 year old girl KILL THIS SONG in JAPANESE at AX2017. It was something else. Props to her, honestly. Tht was so impressive.

Also, here is English:

“OUR BROKEN PARTS THEY INTERTWINE FROM ONCE WAS YOURS AND ONCE WAS MINE”

Seven seems like a good place to stop, and it’s getting hard to type, so oI’ll leave it here ,

Thanks for reading. ❤

Comment if you want and i will reply because I’m a brave girl! 😀

Sober notice: I should probably regret publishing this, but I don’t. It’s harmless writer’s block canceling/shelter-in-place fun. However, I will add, please drink responsibly. ❤

  1. I love Johathan and AmaLee!
    I haven’t seen the anime you mentioned earlier but I did like the vocal songs!
    A song that always makes me feel stuff.. though technically not anime music is Hatsune Miku’s Hello/How are You. It has some pretty solid English covers or subbed versions and if you know what is being said it can hit you straight in the Kokoro.. it felt really relatable to me.. on certain days!

    It sounds so sweet an innocent but deep down it’s kinda depressing and gloomy which is quite a good metaphor for the text itself.
