THE iDOLM@STER Episode 23

Oh man…


Track Title: Aoi Tori (Piano Instrumental Version)

Artist: THE iDOLM@STER

Album: THE iDOLM@STER ANIM@TION MASTER 05

Song: Aoi Tori (Piano Instrumental Version)
Album: THE iDOLM@STER ANIM@TION MASTER 05

I didn’t know which song to upload with my review/thoughts, so I just chose this.

Overall this album is pretty good.

Rereleased Old Songs: Waratte!, START, Furufuru Future, Shocking na Kare,

New Versions of Old Songs: i, Kimi wa Melody, Colorful Days, MEGARE!

Brand New Songs: Jibun REST@RT, Marionette no Kokoro

There are like 3 OST tracks, which is fewer than the other releases, but I guess they’re running low on OST tracks by now or something.

There’s also a medley at the very end, it’s all the songs that they performed in episode 13 during the concert. But don’t get too excited, it’s not a very good medley, things don’t really blend together, it’s just “One song starts, awkwardly stops, then the next song awkwardly begins”, so that was a little disappointing.

I loved the new version of i though, it’s one of my favorite songs. Now it has everyone singing, but…I don’t think the mixing is as good as the old version. The version of MEGARE with everyone singing is great too. And for Colorful Days, I cried tears of joy when they included the 12 color version at the end.

Next ANIM@TION MASTER isn’t looking too great though, only 4 new things. Lot of old tracks, but the new ones will be: the new songs for Hibiki and Makoto, Yakusoku sung by everyone like the anime, and then a solo version of Yakusoku for Chihaya. The CD will be worth it just for Yakusoku though.


"Jibun REST@RT" from THE iDOLM@STER Singable English Lyrics
(I finally get a chance to use this derpy picture I took). This is for the game sized version. The first verse is fast so your tongue might get tied, just practice. I tried to stick close with the original, please credit if you use them etc.
Jibun REST@RT
I’ve been ignoring the way that I’ve lived life, but now all of that stops for todayI’m starting to see the path that leads to my futureI won’t just be some weak and feminine girl, whether I’m moving forward or holding backThe me that I like the most is when I try to act coolI feel like I’m on a journeyI can feel the door openingInside my heart, a little at a timeI feel if I just wait aroundI’ll miss out on this special chanceI won’t just let it pass me by!On the shining stage is where I really wanna standWhen the light’s on me, I feel the greatest feeling of allThat moment where all my hard work is paying offI hope that it will never endIf this is a dream, then don’t you wake me up!And just like a bird that flies across the open skySoaring wide and free, I’ll spread my wings apart and I’ll flyNo matter how far it is, I’ll just keep going, to that world in my fantasyI don’t want this to end up as some forgotten dream

Jibun REST@RT

I’ve been ignoring the way that I’ve lived life, but now all of that stops for today
I’m starting to see the path that leads to my future
I won’t just be some weak and feminine girl, whether I’m moving forward or holding back
The me that I like the most is when I try to act cool

I feel like I’m on a journey
I can feel the door opening
Inside my heart, a little at a time
I feel if I just wait around
I’ll miss out on this special chance
I won’t just let it pass me by!

On the shining stage is where I really wanna stand
When the light’s on me, I feel the greatest feeling of all
That moment where all my hard work is paying off
I hope that it will never end
If this is a dream, then don’t you wake me up!

And just like a bird that flies across the open sky
Soaring wide and free, I’ll spread my wings apart and I’ll fly
No matter how far it is, I’ll just keep going, to that world in my fantasy
I don’t want this to end up as some forgotten dream

The song is finally here. This album also includes Miki’s song, Marionette no Kokoro. I plan to do lyrics for this song soon…possibly both songs. Also will probably include some kind of mini-review/overview thing of the album on my next audio post.


THE iDOLM@STER Episode 22


Even in her own episode, Kotori is always in the background. ;_;


THE iDOLM@STER Episode 21


OMG. Hibiki, Yukiho, and Takane’s seiyuu singing Koi wo Hajimeyou.


"Yakusoku" from THE iDOLM@STER Singable English Lyrics
Yakusoku/Promise, the song used in episode 20 and probably is going to be the highlight of the entire anime. Beautiful song, and I get chills when Chihaya starts to sing. I hope that when the full version is released, it’s the same as in the anime, where all the girls start singing first, and then Chihaya. I also hope they put this as a DLC song in the future.
As for the lyrics, same as all the other ones: no rhyming, stayed close to the original. Credit me if you use them, etc.
Yakusoku
Hey, right now, I’m watching over you, even if we are apartSo please wipe away all your tears and smile for meI want you to know that you are never truly aloneBecause having the power to dream is to liveAnd it’s the power to overcome sorrowLet’s walk down this never-ending pathLet’s sing a song, that reaches the heavensSo that our hearts can reach one anotherLet’s promise to ourselves, to always move forwardThank you for smileLet’s walk down this never-ending pathLet’s sing a song, that reaches the heavensSo that our hearts can reach one anotherLet’s promise to ourselves, to always move forwardThank you for smileHey, you know, whenever I close my eyes, I see you smilingI can hear that voice of yours speaking to me loud and clearYour smile would shine the brightest whenever you told meto “turn all of your pain into courage, someday”"And turn all of your memories into love"Let’s walk down the path of no returnLet’s sing a song, together with our friendsSo that all our prayers will roar out loudI will promise to myself, that our dreams will all come trueThank you for love

Yakusoku

Hey, right now, I’m watching over you, even if we are apart
So please wipe away all your tears and smile for me
I want you to know that you are never truly alone
Because having the power to dream is to live
And it’s the power to overcome sorrow

Let’s walk down this never-ending path
Let’s sing a song, that reaches the heavens
So that our hearts can reach one another
Let’s promise to ourselves, to always move forward
Thank you for smile

Let’s walk down this never-ending path
Let’s sing a song, that reaches the heavens
So that our hearts can reach one another
Let’s promise to ourselves, to always move forward
Thank you for smile

Hey, you know, whenever I close my eyes, I see you smiling
I can hear that voice of yours speaking to me loud and clear
Your smile would shine the brightest whenever you told me
to “turn all of your pain into courage, someday”
"And turn all of your memories into love"

Let’s walk down the path of no return
Let’s sing a song, together with our friends
So that all our prayers will roar out loud
I will promise to myself, that our dreams will all come true
Thank you for love
