Original Title: スロウ Surou

Producer: PolyphonicBranch ft.茶太 Chata

From “Luna ac Memoria

Lie, lie, in between mine; a small gap hidden among all of time
When I slowly begin to climb my way to the top of the world

On the wall, flower crowns also withered without any sort of sounds
And the memory doesn’t fade

Stained with loneliness all this time, close your eyes and see through the lie
Overflowing through the thick clouds, light pours out and brightens covered crowds
Seven colors raced above from, watching, reflected in your eyes some
Tracing rainbow’s trajectory, you follow it and you leave me

Lie, lie, in the flowers, smell the aroma and pass the hours
Your outline silence devours, I thought it disappeared for good

On the wall, still the clock will not continue to work; to tick or tock
And the memory will not fade

Stained with sorrow, sadness this time, close your eyes and see through the lie
When you revisited ahead, you turned around only to see
Swimming ’round in waves like the sea, reflected by light was you and me
So as to not let go of you, fingers tied and connected true,

Stained with loneliness all this time, close your eyes and see through the lie
Overflowing through the thick clouds, light pours out and brightens covered crowds
Seven colors raced above from, watching, reflected in your eyes some
Tracing rainbow’s trajectory, you follow it and you leave me

From “Luna ac Memoria

I lost all the names, as I say, I claim
All the proof you need, it’s all here indeed

Destroying the building blocks
Piled high they were locked
A loop just begins to drop
So let it stop

So long, farewell
And you will not even take a notice or care
It’s beautifully rotting like a flower held in the air

A fire is lit, gazing at our wits
All the proof you need, it’s all here indeed

In a pure white ink so clear
Draw on the past here
A loop just begins to drop
So let it stop

So long, farewell
Such that anyone can someday return
To a place where a meteor fell in the atmosphere

As if I had feathery wings
Standing, I’m flying

So long, farewell
Pretending to be peaceful, you see
Slowly rotting like a forest full of trees going down

Heart and mind, I was scared, all throughout that night
Dreaming of tomorrow, my heart balanced out just right
Between the earth and sky, clouds and sea
Unleash everything, show it with all your might

(Ash to ash, dust to dust, but…)

If it’s for you, I won’t hesitate in giving you
Those words that I’m muttering always too

Somehow us two, we can always believe the truth in those words
I can swear it over all we have heard

There are people who could be hurt, ’cause of me
But it can return to ashes, all of this body
If I am to protect you from any ado
I’ll become a dragon and right fly to you

Hidden within the midst of the very passages of time
Even now, enveloped in such a darkness like mine
Only now starting from around the corner
They will all come to us in their prime

Spending thousands of years, spinning a song for only you to hear
That will never be completed
With nothing more I knew, but constant shaking that was never through
Fully aware, I walked out at that moment and flew

Within this colorless world where we exist, we live
Your reflection, clear as glass, that my eyes give
Touches even deep within your heart and mind
Held in a brilliantly gorgeous twilight

Colored black, heart and mind, I was scared, all throughout the night
Carved out in their whole, in the dark evening light
Between the earth and sky, clouds and sea
Unleash everything, show it with all your might (ah)

ash to ash dust to dust
ash to ash dust to dust
my heart is bright
because your love would be enough

Crybaby Pierrot

Original Title: 泣き虫ピエロ Nakimushi Piero

Producer: PolyphonicBranch ft. IA

YT | NND | Karaoke

Only pretending to not notice all the scars
So I threw out this lost piece of ours
I felt a saddness I couldn’t confide to anyone
As I held my heart all alone ’til I was numb

Spinning round, spinning round, just like a circus’s show
Before my eyes, that show had glowed
Surely, that was a blatantly fake smile
I had thought at least this would last awhile

What a crybaby was that pierrot, unhonest in the night, oh what a show
Clutching my knees to my heart tightly, but I was seen, you know
There’s no need for you to cry anymore, we’ll split and share this sadness of yours
Saying so, with those words, so won’t you let me see your smile?

Wound up being hurt by such a casual lie
So I locked the feelings I learned deep inside
If there had been less pain in the end, it would be better
So that is, exactly, what I’ve done forever

Little more, little more, I really wanted to touch
Our fingers together so much
Surely yes, your smile, alone would be
Able to melt the hearts of anyone who saw

What a crybaby was that pierrot, running away in the night, what a show
On that day my tears fell, and who but you was to see them overflow
Out loud, the words of my feelings played, falling out before I could be afraid
On that day, I had found a key to the closed door that was lost

Hating it all, hating it all, sensing that hate I, pushed you away
Standing upright, standing upright, We only could stare, so I turned away
Whenever I was confronted with my emotions, I ran away
I wonder if I can become stronger than this

What a crybaby was that pierrot, speaking words that only hurt you so
Yet I wonder just why, did it all happen by my side

What a crybaby was that pierrot, unhonest in the night, oh what a show
Clutching my knees to my heart tightly, but I was seen, you know
How will I be able to tell you that my feelings for you are true?
I want to deliver, to bare everything to you
But most of all, to overflow these “thank yous”

I want to be conveyed, all of my thanks to you
And to the crybaby pierrot, a so long, farewell

Original Title: 慟哭トリガー Doukoku Turigaa

Producer: PolyphonicBranch ft. Miku, Rin, Len

NND | YT | Karaoke (You need a Piapro account)

Special site: http://polyphonicbranch.com/tokusetsu/doukoku.html

Rough translation of special site (on this blog)

Now come listen, the story’s only beginning
Are you ready yet? With a finger on the trigger
“And a reality just like this lingers”
Even a curse won’t change things any quicker

Cyber Brainwashed Synergistic Reaction
To the sweet trap around where you’re at, please be sure to pay attention
It’s a hidden all-wire wrapped contraption
“A pretty good one in my own abstraction”

Just what are you trying to get by causing pain to someone else instead?
I see that look of grief while gazing at the moon up ahead
And what is breaking these strong bonds, even thicker than my own crimson blood?
It’s even better for you to lose what you want to protect once you’ve already begun

1.2.3 soaring, running on out, so as to not be eroded away in the world
Believing in only my own heartbeat, I have to keep running on through
Still, there are feelings that remain within me, and they all ran back and combined in a whirl
Fears, impatience, and hiding all the scars too
Seeking the target where this little bullet’ll be fired away

Following the thin little line of light, I wonder if praying will tell me anything?
Someone, tell me the meaning behind making the sign of a cross, won’t you please
Or what exactly is it that the birds swimming in the sky are to symbolize
I still find myself standing here, with such muddy hands, wiping all my tears away

It’s just the boundary line of evening, closer than you would think
Because the light shone ever so gently, didn’t even notice (yeah)
Birds all locked up in a cage would never, ever forget the dream that flying was
An echo of that voice doesn’t disappear, and now my chest tightens around the buzz

1.2.3 soaring, running on out, with the proof of someone’s existence in hand
Dragging out what was created from fate, the meaning of why we were born
Who was it that wound the spiral of the clock, that had remained stopped for so long? I don’t understand
Cruelty, inferiority, sorrow-worn
Take aim, shooting to kill, this little bullet was fired away

When the seed of loneliness sprouts in time
Memories of nostalgia arise
A baby’s hand traces these lingering shadows of mine
Like breaking a building block, it shatters, this past of mine

3.2.1 soaring, running on out, while being eroded away little by little
Moonlight pours down on this very night, as my tears welled and spilled out away
It’s those heavy chains named fate that keep all these feelings tethered together in triple
Still I find it’s a pretty sort of array
And all to protect you, this little bullet was fired away

Also, the original video description says “For you, I hope the world is interesting/exciting.”

Translyrics for PolyphonicBranch’s new Tokyo Cyber Detective Brigade song “Shrieking Trigger” are here (on this blog).

Special site: http://polyphonicbranch.com/tokusetsu/doukoku.html

As per usual, keep in mind this is a really rough translation. If anything’s majorly incorrect, let me know so I can fix it right away.


Here is the fictional town [Tokyo].

On the 24th Bay Area city block sits one of the few hospitals
A four story brick building
One can climb up to the roof and the built in penthouse from the outside stairs.

Three people huddle together, alive and living
It was their refuge as there was no other orphanage

Len was impatient
He wanted to become their full-fledged support of life early

One day, Len began the pretending basis of a detective industry, and recieved a

“I want to find a man”

-Two people’s shadows behind the scenes
-Corporation “Pandemonics”
-They were looking for
-The traitor who took the important organization data

When speculation and thought intersect, the story begins to move

Hatsune Miku
Weapon: Colt-M1911A1 Government Model

Lives in a penthouse on the roof while working as a clerk in the hospital
Not good at smiling/doesn’t smile easily because she’s been suppressing emotions from a young age
Special skills include typing at super speed, and concentration
Usually since her hate is noticable, she slows down as much as possible
Has the strong feeling of wanting to protect Rin and Len

Kagamine Len
Weapon: Walther-MPK

Just a child, but feels frustration in his helplessness
Began the detective business, with the idea of wanting to be useful for Miku in mind
Goofy, but with a strong sense of responsibility
Twin brother of Rin, but no matter how you look at it, is the older one.

Kagamine Rin
Weapon: Mono-monecular wire

Twin sister of Len
Loves sweets, spends every day doing nothing(?)
Somewhat of a bad mouth, but seems to feel a strong bond with Len and Miku in fact
The type to not drag too much emotion along

If you haven’t heard yet, Tokyo Cyber Detective Brigade is being turned into a novel, due for release on the 30th this month! It’s being written by 石沢克宜, who also wrote two Kokoro novels and a Secret Police novel. If you order from Animate, some bonus post cards/art cards illustrated by MONQ are included (I don’t believe Amazon offers the same goodies, unfortunately (I might be wrong about this)).

Here’s a rough, rough translation of the summary and characters. If anything’s incorrect, let me know and I’ll fix it asap.

“I, for the people who love, continue to live”
Here is the fictional town [Tokyo] — Three years ago, in an area devastated by the earthquake and tsunami, the corner of 24th Bay Area, Miku lived with and mutually supported twins Rin and Len while poor. To try to make life easier, Len started detective work. Be certain to elaborate some of your requests with him. And then, behind the scenes, there are two shadows… It’ll engulf the fate of them all, and the stage’s curtain will rise!

The male twin of Rin, born in the orphanage. Plays the role of older than Miku(?), he will stand up and take action to this and that, but will be idle as well.

The female twin of Len, born in the orphanage. Met Miku in the orphanage, felt to have strong ties with her. Loves sweets.

Lost her parents at an early age, grew up in the orphanage. From certain circumstances, she made it a rule to not put too much emotion on the table.

Executive of the mysterious organization “Pandemonics”. Personality is cool and cruel. Calculates everything, doesn’t love people.

Executive at the same organization as KAITO, the armed presence. Strong in all aspects. Sometimes can get deep/important information from just a side glance.

Devastated by the earthquake and tsunami, a landfill vigilante bundled woman. Looks cool with deep humanity, a cat lover.
