Otsuka Ai – Kingyo Hanabi Karaoke Version

Otsuka Ai – Kingyo Hanabi (Goldfish, Fireworks) Karaoke Fansub:

In an attempt to learn the Japanese language, and to have a better understanding of what one of my favorite Japanese Singers is saying in her songs, I broke out my Japanese translation dictionary and dusted it off. I had translated it using the Rōmaji translations of the lyrics found anywhere online. It took me a good week getting the hang of things before a had my rough draft of the translated lyrics. If you ever watched Star Wars(who hasn’t?!), Jedi Yoda (the small green guy) speaks in this broken English that doesn’t make much sense to some. Well, that’s exactly how it looked when I completed the translation. From there, I reworded it in the sense that would sound right to anyone that speaks English fluently (with a lot of help from someone that didn’t want to be named =P). Then, I imported both the Rōmaji and English translations into Aegisub to time the lyrics to the music video, and then I loaded the video into After Effects and imported the timed subs using pt_SSA Karaoke Animator. I added a bit of animation to the Rōmaji lyrics and exported the file to a .mp4 container. What you see below is the end product. Enjoy!


English Translation
The Goldfish That Swims Around In My Heart
Gathers Thoughts Of Love
Knowing That My Love Is Ripening, Turning Crimson
But Still, I Wish To Be At Your Side
The Scent Of Summer In The Rain
Raining Down, They Fall, The Goldfish Fireworks
Dazzled By The Light
For A Moment I See It, Your Gentle Face
The Goldfish That Swims Around In My Heart
Is Not Wrapped In Ugliness
Its Life, Decided In Just One Summer
But For Just A Little While, I Wish For Your Happiness
The Scent Of Summer, Blanketed In The Night
Raining Down, They Fall, The Goldfish Fireworks
I Can’t Seem To Put These Feelings Into Words
For A Moment I See It, Your Gentle Face
The Scent Of Summer In The Rain
The Scent Of Summer In The Rain
The Scent Of Summer In The Rain
Raining Down, They Fall, The Goldfish Fireworks
Dazzled By The Light
For A Moment I See It, Your Gentle Face
The Scent Of Summer, Blanketed In The Night
Raining Down, They Fall, The Goldfish Fireworks
I Can’t Seem To Put These Feelings Into Words
For A Moment I See It, Your Gentle Face
