Posted 16 Apr 2013Okay, if you say so. But haven't you heard of the phrase "fighting for peace is like having sex for virginity"?
That's a morbid comparison, I haven't heard that phrase before. I'd like to point out that being a not-virgin and being in a state of having sex are not the same thing. And if Miku's grown up with a war, then the issue isn't exactly whether or not we should start fighting. If we fight with all our might, maybe it'll be over sooner. I think that this song's meant to be upbeat to some degree, so I think that it could be an analogy for a fight against depression, isolation, sickness. It'd be uplifting that way.
That's the way I'd see it, but if you find that unsatisfying, then there's a reason there's never a One True Interpretation. If the real thing was a text summary, then that's the form the story should have come in in the first place. But text summaries aren't very satisfying - so the point isn't digging out the real moral, a story isn't a law-book. It's your life, and what the bits of music and lyric and video end up saying to you. It's only a successful story when you're automatically investing bits of your values and your life in it.
QuoteThis blog post says that "Senbonzakura isn't an anti-western anthem or call to arms, it's an introspective look at the individual pieces of the Japanese cultural identity and one that resonates well in modern, post-Tsunami Japan." But what does it mean by "introspective look at the individual pieces of the Japanese cultural identity"?
Looking at Japan as a Japanese person and seeing that what Japanese culture means is a combination of Western and Traditional Japanese bits, which have found coexistence in a single identity.
Posted 16 Apr 2013Themes of hectic-ness, separation, eh. Well, it could be, she's stuck in Japan, while the person she's calling out to stuck overseas - either a westerner or a japanese person. If the war hurries up and finishes then she can see that person again. She believes in fighting for peace.
It'd be romantic if we were talking about romans or european knights or something.
Posted 16 Apr 2013Speaking of Ring, who were these other two girls in this art?
I'm thinking Yukari, and the one on the far left is Teto. That's my guess.
The english in the article's fine. I wonder if there's any Luka stuff? Or Gumi? Haha, octopus and carrot drinks just don't sound good : P Maybe a carrot cake or something..
Also does anyone know where I can find wonderful opportunity lyrics? I'm trying to find the lyrics to "clear sky is always behind" but I've had no luck >:\ b-sidessss *shakes fist*
Posted 16 Apr 2013I haven't been keeping up with the thread and now I gotta see everyone's designs. I have a hot chocolate prepared for the occasion, wish me luck : D
Against the odds I did manage to get something in, and here it isssss:
And yes Mirlune do not feel ashamed for crying, this stuff gets into your head. Just don't let it keep you down, next time will be better. Mirlune fighting! ( *o*)9
