  • Comments: I know I was supposed to do a Hiei profile next, but I *adore* this song. And I wanted something that focused on the Makai arc, specifically Yomi. This video should contain some spoilers and probably some confusing references for those who don't know about the Makai arc. Most of it is general enough to enjoy without knowing, though. Also, this video is slow. I mean, don't expect my usual action sync with this one - I was purposely trying to slow most of it down enough to really catch Kurama's expression. I haven't seen many vids that show his darker side, and I think this one brings it out nicely. I put this in mpg format - the size was reasonable, I'll try to make sure my future yyh vids are in an easier format for those who have trouble with the avis.

    Lyric Sync:
    Yes, I did do lyric sync with this video. It isn't word-for-word like my 'Eye to Eye,' but there should be a general match between the stanzas, a little non-literal sync towards the end. If you read over the english lyrics you should be able to follow well enough. I don't know how to add subtitles, and don't really want to change the format, so if you don't like japanese music without subtitled lyric translation, you probably shouldn't watch this.

    Editing:
    Windows Movie Maker 2.0 (editing), Showbiz (conversion), BeSweet (conversion), TMPGEnc (compression).

    English Lyrics:

    Dark sky that stretches out limitlessly
    The sound of distant, cracking thunder.
    Whenever I stand, my steps
    sway.

    Borrowing the words of a warm person
    Borrowing the form of nostalgic days
    Bad dreams step ever closer.
    Nightmare!

    A strange voice, a cold hand...
    From out of the darkness, they call me. Again and again, they call me.

    What in the world is right?
    What in the world is wrong?
    Memories! Please,
    illuminate this darkness immediately!

    If it's to protect someone precious to me,
    it's OK if this body of mine is wounded
    it's OK if this heart of mine burns.

    Dark sky that stretches out limitlessly
    The sound of distant, cracking thunder
    Don't be fooled
    by what you see.

    My heart is uncertain if it should
    track down the wounded future
    or tread on the broken tomorrow.
    Love

    Even when struck by the fierce rain
    Even when blown by cold winds
    Seeking the light
    I think of that tree's strength

    Dark sky that stretches out limitlessly
    The sound of distant, cracking thunder.
    Whenever I stand, my steps
    sway.

    If it's to protect someone precious to me,
    I'll become much more extraordinary than anyone,
    I'll become much stronger than anyone.
