Busy busy week for FMA news

HEY KIRSTEN, LOOKS LIKE WE DON'T HAVE TO FANSUB IT ANYMORE! Way to go, FUNimation! :Db

Now I want to squee shamelessly about the OP theme for a moment. (You can find the full version for download over here.)

The more I listen to it, the more I am convinced that this is going to be one epic OP. It basically blows "Melissa" out of the water for me (I know, it's an unfair comparison, times being different and all, but "Melissa" has never made me feel as much as I do when I listen to "again"). In terms of theme, I think it fits perfectly. The lyrics make me envision numerous specific scenes and dialogue from the manga. YUI puts a lot of feeling into it, like she's really singing from her heart.

I love how it starts out soft and reflective, then builds up to a feverish, frantic rock sound, with the lyrics going at lightning speed and almost stream-of-consciousness in how they sometimes don't even bother to finish a thought before moving on to the next. It properly sets the tone of being both regretful and forward-looking.

Transliterating it was a lot easier than I expected, though I probably got a few things wrong anyway. But I wanted to at least try getting across the feel of the song because I...I just really love it. XD;


Again

yume no tsuzuki oikaketeita hazu na no ni

ano koro mitai nitte modoritai wake janai no
nakushite kita sora wo sagashiteru
wakatte kuremasu youni gisei ni natta youna kanashii kao wa yamete yo

Again

Though I ought to have been chasing the continuation of a dream
I stumble across people on the turning winding thin path
It's not that I want to return to what the old days were like
I'm searching for the sky we've been losing
I hope you'll understand stop making a sad face like you've sacrificed yourself

Sin isn't merely tears at the end
you always keep carrying it on painfully
Can't see the exit who are you waiting for in a maze of your feelings

Like spelling a different note
I want to spit it out more honestly
What should I escape from
Is this what you call reality

I feel like I'm forgetting the reason I am living in the middle of the night
No matter what it is I can't be bothered
I don't even have a place to return to
Life is still too long to erase these feelings, right
I'll welcome even this nostalgic pain

Guess I have to apologize ahh I'm sorry
I couldn't say it very well I've just been making you worry
I'll change everything that day or I'll change everything tomorrow
I won't do it in order
I hope you'll understand I close my eyes gently because I can see things I don't even want to see

Of rumors that can't be said I'm a little
A statement I hear for the first time which
If we understand each other even friends can just stop the lies all right

Like how a deep heart becomes irritated
the inside of my body is burning up
Are you really expecting things from me
Is this what you call reality

I want to shout what's the reason I am living can you hear me
No matter what it is I can't be bothered
I don't even have a place to return to
I'm always thankful for your kindness so I want to become strong
To move forward I'll welcome even enemies and allies

How will I open the next door I'm thinking about it
I can't turn back now the story has begun
Wake up
Wake up

Life is still too long to erase these feelings, right
Things I've left off doing I want to try doing them over again
So let's go one more time

I want to shout what's the reason I am living can you hear me
No matter what it is I can't be bothered
I don't even have a place to return to
I'm always thankful for your kindness so I want to become strong
I'll welcome even this nostalgic pain





EDIT: This is totally random, but whenever I see someone abbreviate Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (FMA:B), I always see it as "FMA" followed by an emoticon sticking its tongue out. I...think I'm just gonna continue calling it plain FMA.

...Dammit now I can't sleep I'm too excited.

EDIT 2: HOLY SHIT. New official art. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. \O_O/
