Innocent Midnight Legend

Original title: 純情Midnight伝説 (Junjou Midnight Densetsu)
Composer: Takamitsu Ono
Lyricist: Yoshie Isogai
Arranger: Chihiro Tamaki

From Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls, for Enjin. (wiki page)

Don’t need any of your half-assed feelings, baby
‘Cause my style is to go all out the whole way
I’ll make you eat my dust, Yeah!
That’s how we’ll settle this, yeah
C’mon! C’mon! Alright
I’ll ride close to ya tonight

In the dark, left their mark, my tail lamps trail
With a shaky backdrop of the coast as I sail
This ain’t much like me, hey? A sudden pain floats by
On the sea breeze that follows me as I fly

If you’re talking resolve, don’t ya know?
I already prepared myself long ago
Women have guts! In my own clumsy way, I’ll show you
My own innocent and pure feelings I hold true

The sea that glitters with stardust tonight
And my lonely heart, only night
Blow them all away
This feeling inside me sharpened to a point
I’m gonna let it loose, are you OK?

Midnight, fighting spirit at its peak!
Dream’s special blow, let’s go
Choose your technique
So, outride your former limits, baby
And let’s see our future that can cut through even the wind

Morals, justice, and what is true
Are what every flower silently goes through
It ain’t like me to laugh about it any day though, ’cause
This is my way of life, not some TV show

Should a kitten be searching for shelter
On a cold night that anyone could suffer
No doubt I’d warm it up on my chest and say, softly
“No need to worry”, just leave it all to me

It’s a big gamble with stakes high as the sky
More so Dreaming on, Shining on
With every step
If I cashed out all my pride right now
I’ll grab and claim all the brilliance as mine

Midnight, with all of our burning bonds
We’ll show you our will, our fill
Of crazy power
So shake off your limitations, baby!
And let’s move straight into an attack without blinking

The lonely hearted angels that surround me
Are at it again today
Nonstop attacks on a dangerous line
Take the fire of life and burn that flame

Baby we’ve got mutual love running
Don’t look down on pure hearts for a pretty feeling
If you give it your all, your heart’s a festival
So go ahead and enjoy it to your heart’s content

Midnight, fighting spirit at its peak!
Dream’s special blow, let’s go
Choose your technique
So, outride your former limits, baby
And let’s see our future that can cut through even the wind

Oi Oi Oi that’s right, tonight’s the night
Ai Ai Ai, love starting of you and I
Boom Boom Boom, hear the engine of my heart roar
It will be, the legend of us, baby

Composer: Takamitsu Ono
Lyricist: Yuriko Mori
Arranger: Chihiro Tamaki

With everyone gathered round
Let’s make this a merry party night
With you and you and you, tonight, we’ll
Da-da-da-da-dance♪
And seize the light

Lift your head and stop making such a gloomy face
Move on out and gather up your dreams in your arms no matter your pace
This song and dance will surely resonate with magic
So jump high and fly away on the wings of your rhythm

Empty your mind, nothing inside, no more crap can even hide
Then brand new energy will seep in in its place tonight

Everyone, now gather round
Come with me on this fever night
Hand in hand in hand, tonight and
Da-da-da-da-dance♪
Gathered in a circle round
Nice to meet you for the very first time
Along with my precious friends tonight
Let’s have fun and enjoy this delight!

Come together, and let’s dance around the world tonight
It turns around endlessly everyday, isn’t that right?
Once the clock strikes twelve, the magic will be broken
Is it okay if I dance without my makeup and barefoot?

From your hair, through the air, let’s spread enjoyment everywhere
Until everyone’s worries flutter away elsewhere

With everyone gathered round
On this wonderful, lovely night
Eye contact with everyone, let’s
Da-da-da-da-dance♪
Gathered in a circle round
Even a kitten came to play tonight
Anyone can jump in too, alright?
The party will never end tonight

In just a little bit, now
Until the clock stops somehow
I wanna dance more and more
With all my friends galore
And especially with you…

Everyone, now gather round
Come with me on this fever night
Hand in hand in hand, tonight and
Da-da-da-da-dance♪

Gathered in a circle round
Nice to meet you for the first time
Along with my precious friends tonight
Let’s have fun and enjoy this delight!

Absolute NIne

From Idolmaster Cinderella Girls. (wiki page)

I don’t know why the title is “Absolute NIne” as opposed to “Absolute Nine” – it’s not a typo.

Echoing loud
To the future ahead
With my own voice, I’ll
Win with this song, and no doubt
I’ll grab the starry star

Don’t say that your limits are set in stone
With my hand higher, I can reach higher, than anyone on their own
Even if there are hardships along the way
A god so kindly, gave a chance to me
So I won’t be afraid

With the spotlight trained onto me, I hide my tears so I can still see
Because I cannot let this dream end as just a dream
I’ll raise my own flag high, let it fly, I’ll run by, and so I
Will keep moving, I won’t lose!

Even if
My feet tremble and I start to bleed out,
because I’m so lonely I can’t even shout
I promise myself, on that distant day
With my own hands, I’ll, hold onto that promise, no doubt

Even if freedom begins to be dreary
Soaring in this song, away from me
Echoing loud to the future ahead
With my own voice, I’ll, win with this song, and no doubt
[I’ll grab the starry star!] *
*(If using the long version, use this line and ignore the next bracketed stanza. If the short version, ignore this line and use the next stanza (and end after that stanza))

[Even if my words will become distorted
And my image accelerates until I’m important
Echoing loud across the whole world
With my own voice, I’ll, win with this song, and no doubt
Shine like the starry star!]*

Taking an awkward detour to avoid the pain
Is like bitter juice, sweetened with excuses, don’t let them in your brain
Like a confusing maze, even with many dead ends
I’ll tear through and break free, make a path that suits me
As I map out the bends

Returning to this terrorism, that is emotional biorhythm
My heart won’t stop beating loud, but I will shake it off
I’ll raise my own flag high, let it fly, I’ll run by, until I
Can grab and pick it back up

Even if
My body wears out and starts to ache
because I’m so lonely with all this heartache
All the strength I had seen before now
Will carry me ahead, step by step, I tread, no doubt

Even if my words will become distorted
And my image accelerates ’til I’m important
Echoing loud across the whole world
With my own voice, I’ll, win with this song, and no doubt
Shine like the starry star!

A dream so fragile like a bubble
Grows larger and expands
Sending lots of feelings to everyone
And takes its leave
To wherever it once came, to far away

Even if my feet tremble and bleed out,
because I’m so lonely I can’t even shout
That future I yearned so dearly for
With my own hands, I’ll, grab it and make it true, no doubt

Even if my body wears out and aches
because I’m so lonely with all this heartache
All the strength I had seen before now
Will carry me ahead, one step at a time, no doubt

Even if my words will become distorted
And my image accelerates ’til I’m important
Echoing loud across the whole world
With my own voice, I’ll, win with this song, and no doubt
Shine like the starry star!

Original Title: ススメ☆オトメ ~jewel parade~ (Susume☆Otome ~jewel parade~)

Composer: Tanaka Hidekazu
Lyricist: Yuriko Mori
Arranger: Tanaka Hidekazu

From Idolmaster Cinderella Girls for C5, Tropical☆Stars, and Aoino Orchestra. (wiki page)

A dream is, made up in, a jewel, that everyone has and holds close in their hearts
I aim for, all my goals, ’cause I want, to shine the brightest out of anyone

But today, reality, is tough as, I had expected, but even when it gets this hard
I’ll never, just give up, ’cause I’ve got, all my friends cheering me on ’til I’m done

Everyone gathered round, joining our auras together as one
Our bonds form a rainbow necklace, dazzling everyone

Keep on moving☆young girl, (as) far as you can try
Let’s aim toward the stage of our dreams in the sky
Joy is understanding you and me, that’s the source of my bravery

Keep on moving☆young girl, forever moving through
A falling star with your chance will come down to you
Don your dazzling shining light and let it spread
Now, in a parade, let’s march ahead

My dream is, made up in, a diamond, so even if I fall I won’t shatter and break
If you keep, your will strong, then even, if there’s trouble you will be able to rise above it

But should you, find yourself, crying out, tears colored like pearls with a heavy heartache
I will be, by your side, until you, can slowly walk forward on your own feet again

If you take my hand in yours, in your own palms you can feel it, right?
The passion exchanged between our palms, is a gentle bond tonight

Keep on moving☆young girl, let’s move together
To the unknown world that’s calling us forward
Strengthen your girl power and foundations, and keep aiming for your aspirations

Keep on moving☆young girl, to the other side
Where a miracle waits for us, unknown to you or I*
With only one road in front of us, it’s so widespread
In a parade, let’s march ahead

That small amount of strength you have when you’re alone, however,
Will burn the brightest when we’re together
So that’s why we should believe
Even if we sometimes fight and disagree
If we can smile together again
If we can dream together again
If we sing again, we can make it to
tomorrow

Keep on moving☆young girl, (as) far as you can try
Let’s aim toward the stage of our dreams in the sky
Joy is understanding you and me, that’s the source of my bravery

Keep on moving☆young girl, forever moving through
A falling star with your chance will come down to you
Don your dazzling shining light and let it spread
Now, in a parade, let’s march ahead

S(mile)ING!

Composer: Yoshi
Lyricist: Yuuta Yashiro
Arranger: Yoshi

From Idolmaster Cinderella Girls, for Shimamura Uzuki. (wiki page)

The stage I admired everyday
I only ever saw it from far away

All the people next to me, day and night
They’re shining bright
In dazzling light
Like diamonds

Dive in spotlight!
I’ll shine with my own voice!
Because I want to you to hear
The dreams I held so dear’s
melody!

So now, no more moping around
Farewell to the old me!

Go! I won’t hesitate anymore!
I’ll shine even brighter than before
I promise to my self and future

Fly! No such thing as “Why now?”
Always Smiling! Singing! Dancing!
All my love!

It’s fine to take it slow now and then
As long as I can keep moving forward again

I’m colorless right now, but I want everyone
Looking at me
Knowing about me
I want to shine

Pose when there’s a flash!
To shine as I am is my own choice!
I want everyone to know
I’m a bit obsessed with the glow
of love

Look here, I say hello to
The new colorful me

Shoot! I have to make up my mind
I’ll take this leading role of mine!
I wink when my chance aligns

Move! No such thing as “too much”
Even more Dreaming! Hoping! For my future!
I can’t let it stop at simple admiration
I’ll get closer a single step at a time!

So, now

Bye! I don’t need tears anymore
I want to smile tomorrow and more
I give a kiss to all of my effort!

Hey! No such thing as “impossible”
I’ll be Dreaming! Hoping! For my future!

Rise! I won’t give up anymore!
I promise myself of yesterday
Who was down in the dumps all day

Live! No such thing as “the end”
Always Smiling! Singing! Dancing!
All my…!

I’ll pour all my love into this song and sing forever!

Shooting Star Miracle

Original title: 流れ星キセキ Nagareboshi Kiseki

Composer: Cher Watanabe
Lyricist: Tsukumo Koganei
Arranger: Cher Watanabe

From Idolmaster Cinderella Girls, for new generations (wiki page)

Look for the shooting stars, up in the night sky
Before day break comes tonight
This is the story of the miracle encounter between the stars shining bright
Once in a lifetime

“What do you want to do?” and things like that
“What can you even do?” was always asked
How would I even know?
But, whatever it is, I want to shine!

When my temper is bad, you will scold me
When I’m really sad, you cry with me
Thank you! Thank you!
All my dear friends

And after the rain clears up
Jump over the puddles and run
Are you ready?
1, 2, 3, and go!

Look for the shooting stars, up in the night sky
Take my hand if you fall and cry
Two stars connect, drawing a line
Creating magic tonight

Look for the shooting stars, when I find them all
Just what should I wish for?
This thought only came to my mind just now
But I want to smile with everybody tonight somehow

Wish upon a star…

Something in my heart begins to spread
All of a sudden, I’m feeling excited
This feeling over and over again
I want to shine even brighter!

Texting you and idea or two
Coming up with plans between me and you
My chance! Your chance!
Growing larger

A rainbow in the morning sun
‘Cause I’m sure it’ll wait for us
So just believe
Ready, set, and go!

Look for the shooting stars, up in the night sky
If a fork in the road lays before your eyes
Then I choose to ascend instead
And aim straight for the sky

Look for the shooting stars, when I find them all
I feel like something will change
Though I must admit, that I’m a bit scared
But if my friends are by my side, I’ll be with them forever

The three of us together
In meteor shower weather
So for always and forever…

So don’t go and just give up
Smile, sing and show your stuff
So now aim, for the highest of stars!!

C’mon, face forward now
C’mon, with all our love now
Let’s go find the source of those voices

Up in the night time sky, they’re intertwining
the stars are advancing
Counting the colorful lights up above us,
there’s one, another, and a third…

Look for the shooting stars, up in the night sky
Take both my hands tonight
And let’s look up at the same sky today
(I’ll) throw my hesitation away!

Look for the shooting stars, when I find them all
I know for sure, I’ll wish
In the future, to shine so brightly
And to always, forever smile with everybody

With everyone together
It’s meteor shower weather
So for always and forever
Smile, it’s a miracle

From Idolmaster Cinderella Girls, sung by LiPPS (Wiki Page)

(M@STER VERSION)

Though raining today, forgot on my way, to bring my umbrella, of course
So why don’t we stand, close together and, walk in the rain sharing yours?
The park is in bloom, grown like a balloon, tulips color the rainy scene
If I miss my chance, I cannot advance, ’cause there won’t be another probably

The two lips on my face, can do more than just talking
They’re blooming just for you
They’re smiling just for you
And for kissing you

(So) Kiss me
Smooch chu chu chu chu tu♡lip
Kiss me
Smooch chu chu chu chu tu♡lip
Our beginning was so soft, like-kiss like-kiss like-kiss (LiKiss, sounds sort of like “Like this”)
(So) Kiss me
Smooch chu chu chu chu tu♡lip
Kiss me
Smooch chu chu chu chu tu♡lip
And after this, there will be more, skipping, skipping, skipping (Kiss-skip would also work, KisSkip)
…I’m just kidding

You know that girls hold, more than can be told, secrets made so casually
I want to show you, my decollete in view, one such secret for you to see
While just pretending, to sleep innocently, letting my shoulders tempt you
I guess you could say, I’m a devil today, though I look angelic through and through

One by one, they bloom, flowers that stain the entire scene
Delicate and lovely
But they’re thick and yummy
With the taste of honey

(So) Kiss me
Smooch chu chu chu chu tu♡lip
Kiss me
Smooch chu chu chu chu tu♡lip
I’ll make you excited so quickly, like-kiss like-kiss like-kiss (LiKiss, sounds sort of like “Like this”)
(So) Kiss me
Smooch chu chu chu chu tu♡lip
Kiss me
Smooch chu chu chu chu tu♡lip
Allow me to make your whole throb, skipping, skipping, skipping (Kiss-skip would also work, KisSkip)
…One more time

‘Cause our love starts right now, here
I’ll cast my charm on you now, dear
‘Cause you’re starting right now, here
Now tonight

The two lips on my face, can do more than just talking
They’re blooming just for you
They’re smiling just for you
And for kissing you

(So) Kiss me
Smooch chu chu chu chu tu♡lip
Kiss me
Smooch chu chu chu chu tu♡lip
Our beginning was so soft, like-kiss like-kiss like-kiss (LiKiss, sounds sort of like “Like this”)
(So) Kiss me
Smooch chu chu chu chu tu♡lip
Kiss me
Smooch chu chu chu chu tu♡lip
And after this, there will be more, skipping, skipping, skipping (Kiss-skip would also work, KisSkip)
