supercell – Giniro Hikousen | Tia – Love Me Gimme

4 Comments

Today—December 19th—is another special day to me, and I believe a couple of my friends might know why.

Giniro Hikousen

Well, the first reason would be because today, supercell finally released the famed music group’s sixth single, “Giniro Hikousen”. The single is also the third one with Koeda filling the vocals, and I’m really happy with the way she has improved. The titular track, Giniro Hikousen, serves as the theme to a new movie called “Nerawareta Gakuen”, with AKB48’s Watanabe “Mayuyu” Mayu performing the other theme song, “Hikaru Monotachi”. In case you didn’t know, Hikaru Monotachi is composed by none other than HachioujiP (8# Prince), a famous Vocaloid producer known for his great works like “electric love”, “Baby Maniacs”, and “Sweet Devil”.

While the A-side track did a great job in bringing the usual quality that has always been supercell’s leading trademark, along with Koeda’s amazing vocals which managed to wholly express ryo’s deep lyrics, the B-side tracks also went out of its way to comply and show another side of the release. Listening to “Little More” made me even more impressed; the acoustic guitar greatly complemented Koeda’s distinct voice. The Nerawareta Gakuen BGM also adds up to the awesomeness of this new single with its sweet and calming tune. Anyway, if anyone of you still want to get the single and haven’t pre-ordered it, you can still do so through CDJapan!

Below, I provided the romanized lyrics of Giniro Hikousen. (^ o ^)

Kono michi noborikireba
Anata wa itsumo
Akubi wo shi nagara
Soko de matteta

Shiokaze niou machi de
Anata mo atashi mo
Otona ni natteku ndatte
Sou omotte ita

Umidori ga naite ita
Ano natsu anata to futari kaetta michi
Oikakete oikakete

Giniro hikousen kagayaku
Umi dake ga kawaranai de
Anata ga waratta kono oka
Mou ichido anata ni aitai

Jitensha kago ni kaban
Futaribun nosete
Monku wo ii nagara
Sakamichi oshita

Kono michi wa massugu de
Machigau hazu nanka nai to omotteta
Dokomademo ikeru tte

Giniro hikousen tondeta
Ano sora wo mitsuketakute
Hoho wo naderu kaze kono oka
Mou koko ni wa daremo inai
Daremo inai

Hi ga ochite nobita kageboushi
Atashi wa anata wo oikaketa
Zutto anata no koto ga suki de
Dakedo atashi wa ienakatta

Giniro hikousen kagayaku
Umi dake ga kawaranai de
Anata ga waratta kono oka
Mou ichido anata ni aitai

Giniro hikousen tondeta
Te wo futte miokutta ano hi
Ano michi nobotte kondo wa
Kono oka de saki ni matteru

Kono oka de saki ni matteru

Okay, so that’s the first. What’s the second? Well, the other reason of me being really happy today also involves ryo, but not supercell: December 19th is also the release date of Tia’s debut single produced by ryo, “Love Me Gimme“! Tia is a singer ryo encountered in Nico Nico Douga, currently being a high school student. The A-side track is the ending theme song for the anime “Wooser no Sono Higurashi“—which despite its cute graphics, is actually a show full of sarcasm and jokes towards otaku culture.

The song really shows ryo’s composition, and even some of its verses are derived from his past works, like “Utakata Hanabi”. Its upbeat melody really makes me want to start jumping and dancing along the tune. The second track, “Pallete”, is more of a ballad to contrast the high tempo and quick pace of Love Me Gimme. If you are interested, you can order the stuff from CDJapan too! (^ o ^)

Love Me Gimme

The romaji for the song is here:

Kimi wo hitorijime shite mitai no desu

Ima korekara atashi ga kimi ni anji wo kakeru
Ii? ja ne karuku me wo tojite mite
Atashi ga ii yo tte iu made sonomama dayo

Yokei na mono wa mienakute ii
Datte datte tsugou ga warui koto datte aru shi
Kuchi ni shicha ikenai koto kurai
Atashi datte chanto mottetari suru ndesu

Kimi wo hitorijime shite mo ii kana
Chotto no aida dake yurushite hoshii
Majimaji mitsumete shimatte iru nau
Ana ga aichau kurai mite iru ndesu

To iu wake de ima kimi wa
Atashi no me no mae ni imasu
Suki kakunin
Shita ato kumori ato hare
Neratte tsutaeru kara
Kakugo shitoite

“Ima ienai no wa makenikushimi?”
Datte datte tsugou ga warui hi datte aru shi
Kyou wa akuma de renshuu nan desu
Kitto chanto umaku ieru you ni naru ndesu

Kimi wo hitorijime shite mo ii kana
Joushiki no hani de sumaseru kara
Masumasu mitsumete shimatte iru nau
Ana ga aichattara gomennasai

Mada me akecha dame dayo
Riyuu nante kikanai de
Datte atashi etto umaku ienai

Kimi wo hitorijime shite mo ii kana
Chotto no aida dake yurushite hoshii
Itsumo mite iru no ni kizukanai kara
Ana ga aichau kurai mite yaru ndesu

Kimi wo hitorijime shite mo ii kana
Chotto no aida dake yurushite hoshii
Majimaji mitsumeru no usume kinshi
Ii desho ima kurai yumemisasete

I love the fact that ryo has been really productive this year. I hope that a third album for supercell will be released next year, as I have been waiting for a new album from the group with a new approach. Keep up the great work, ryo!

  1. Love Me Gimme is really catchy, I can’t get it outta my head😀

  2. I like Love Me Gimme very much, it reminds me some of supercell’s old works
    btw, I seldomly listened Utakata Hanabi in the past so I don’t realize that some of its verses are derived from it
