LION – May’n and Megumi Nakajima [Sheryl and Ranka]

I will be out for a while since I will be attending our retreat… It’ll be actually really fun, imagine the mountains… (actually, I have no idea if there’s anything near our retreat house); the fresh air (actually, we will be confined inside so I wonder how we would breathe…); and lastly, enjoying the free time that’ll be given to us(they will make us cry, pray then FORCE us to sleep on 10:30 pm only…)…

I am a huge fan for the Macross Frontier soundtracks because they really do pick the good songs on the series. The current OP theme is entitled Lion, sung by the two beautiful maidens of Macross Frontier: Sheryl (May’n) and Ranka (Megumi Nakajima). I love them both but personally, I’m surprised on Megumi Nakajima’s performance as Ranka here because I didn’t knew that she could pull off a powerful song along with May’n. This is truly one of the best OP songs I’ve seen and heard for a while. For a trivia, Megumi Nakajima is half-Japanese and half-Filipina.

Lion (Japanese) Lyrics:

Hoshi o mawase sekai no mannaka de
Kushamisureba dokoka no mori de chou ga ranbu
Kimi ga mamoru doa no kagi detarame
Hazukashii monogatari nameatte mo raion wa tsuyoi’

Ikinokoritai ikinokoritai mada ikitetaku naru
Seiza no michibiki de ima mitsumeatta

Ikinokoritai tohou ni kurete kirari karete yuku
Honki no karada misetsukeru made watashi nemuranai

Kaze ga yagate higashi e mukau darou
Koukiatsu kono hoshi no doa o osou
Sasoi mizu ga nonda mune ga tsurai
Toomaki na monogatari majiriau hone no oku made

Ikinokoritai ikinokoritai mada ikitetaku naru
Seiza no michibiki de ima mitsumeatta

Ikinokoritai tohou ni kurete kirari karete yuku
Honki no karada misetsukeru made watashi nemuranai

Nani shi ni umareta no
Nani shi ni koko ni iru

Ikinokoritai umaranai kizu hikari osoreteta
Yurusareta inochi ga ima hikareatta

Samayoi hatete kimi no tonari de hoteri shizumetai
Honki no karada misetsukeru made watashi nemuranai

Ikinokoritai gakeppuchi de ii kimi o aishiteru
Mezametai kimochi ga ima hikareatta

Kyouki ni kaete inorisasagu yo kimi o aishiteru
Seiza no michibiki de

Ikinokoritai mada ikitetai kimi o aishiteru
Honki no kokoro misetsukeru made watashi nemuranai

English Translation:

Go around the stars, right in the middle of the world
When you sneeze, butterflies flutter wildly in a forest somewhere
It’s not certain for you to protect the key to the door
Even if it tastes an embarrassing story, the lion is strong

I want to survive, I want to survive, I feel like I still want to live
By the guidance of the constellations, we gazed at each other just now

I want to survive, I become lost at what to do
and wither away in a sparkle
Until I show off my serious self, I won’t sleep

The wind will head toward the East before long, right?
The high atmospheric pressure attacks the door to this planet
My chest that drank the priming water feels painful
I mix together with a story that surrounds me from afar,
deep into my bones

I want to survive, I want to survive, I feel like I still want to live
By the guidance of the constellations, we gazed at each other just now

I want to survive, I become lost at what to do
and wither away in a sparkle
Until I show off my serious self, I won’t sleep

What was I born to do?
What am I to do here?

I want to survive, my unburied wound feared the light
Our permitted lives attracted each other just now

My wandering is over and I’m next to you, I want to quell my blushing
Until I show off my serious self, I won’t sleep

I want to survive, I’m fine with being on the edge of a cliff, I love you
Our feelings of wishing to wake up attracted each other just now

I fall into rapture and offer a prayer, I love you
By the guidance of the constellations-

I want to survive, I still want to live, I love you
Until I show off my serious heart, I won’t sleep

    I love the song but what annoys me is the video which is very flashy and busy. But anyways… It suits the energetic song.
