MusicStation Monday: “Synchrogazer” by Nana Mizuki


Hey folks~!

Sorry for the late posting and the dearth of posts last Wednesday/Thursday, but I had some things to attend to. Anyways, to get back to S & D’s regular posting schedule, I’ve got this week’s MusicStation Monday feature for you guys!

This week, we have “Synchrogazer” by Nana Mizuki, and it’s the OP of the new Winter 2012 anime, Senhime Zesshou Symphogear. While I haven’t watched the anime, I’ve heard some rave reviews and I know a couple of colleagues who are smitten with this show. I’ll get into why I’m not watching this show later on, but first, I must explain my awesome reason for featuring this song.

So on a calm Saturday afternoon, le me and my mom were watching some Japanese TV, and all of a sudden, the new billboard for Japanese songs came up. After listening to some of the featured songs on the rankings, along came #6, which was none other than “Synchrogazer”. While I was busy tweeting….

Mom: “Hey, this sounds like it’s from an anime.”

Sabishii: “Oh? Hmmm…perchance.”

Mom: “Aren’t you like some anime blogger? You should know where it’s from.”

Sabishii: “DA FUQ?! That’s not a legitimate reason for why I should know…but if I had to guess…probably Senhime Zesshou Symphogear.”

Mom: “What’s it about?”

Sabishii: “Girls fighting in mechas, skin-tight suits, and something to do with music?”

Mom: “Bet you $10 it’s that show.”

Sabishii: “You’re on~!”

…and there goes my $10. Have to say, my mom is too legit.

Anyways, as for the reason why I haven’t watched the show, it’s because I simply can’t get past the premise. No matter how good it is, it’s going to be at the end of my backlog. Hopefully I’ll get to see it before it gets too stale though…

Lyrics:

Listen to my song…

僕の声は聴こえていますか? please tell me…
答えのない構\の指し fly far away

葉じゃ足りないから 僕のすべて受け止めて
来ない…したくないよ
初めて知る
君に歌うよ 遠の始まりを

「だから笑って…」
誰よりも熱く 誰よりも強く 抱き締めるよ
震える心 揺さぶればいい何かが動き出す
等きっと、生まれた日から会える日をずっと探してたんだ
風の鳴く夜は思い出して
共に奏でた跡 天に舞うよ

僕の想いは届いていますか? true or false
触れ合うたび もどかしさが募る crying more crying

いつも避けてばかりいた 日を失いそうで
付けないように 付かないように
嘘だけが増えていく

「だけど笑って…」
痛いくらいに 苦しい程に そう…愛しいから
求める持ち抑えきれない分が怖かった
やっと、巡る能\のRHYTHMに付いたんだ
もう度と君を離さないよ
幾つもの日がね、来を照らす

この朽ち果てても伝えたいものがある
響け 命(いのち)の唱(うた)方 羽ばたいて

「だから笑って…」
誰よりも熱く 誰よりも強く 抱き締めたい
震える心 揺さぶればいい何かが動き出す
等きっと、生まれた日から会える日をずっと探してたんだ
風の鳴く夜は思い出して
共に紡いだ跡 天を描くよ
