    Thanks for all the romaji lyrics and the English translations. But can you also add ‘fanfare’?

    Hello could you put the romaji for “Asia” and “Round About ~Kodoku no Shouzou~” please?

  8. January 22, 2012 8:25 am

    Hi Shinkai and Jeff, I will try but no promises. I don’t speak Japanese so I am at the mercy of other translators. May I suggest you check jpopasia or utau-inu to see if the romaji and transliteration are up over there? These are my two primary sources.

    hi! do you have English translation for the song “fastener”?

    • January 23, 2012 12:31 am

      Hi, it’s the song no 40: Fasunaa (Zipper). The word fasunaa is translated as zipper by the translator, if you read the translation you will understand the context it is used. Enjoy.
