Happy Wednesday! I’ve managed to push out another translation – this marks two in a row! This one’s a song from 『ヲタクに恋は難しい』. It came out over a year ago, but I just finished watching it a few days ago ^^;;; I’d highly recommend it to slice-of-life lovers! It’s super fluffy and cute, and the entire cast of characters are all quirky and lovable in their own individual ways. And this song is just as cute <3 As always, this post is drenched in atrocious grammar, and if you spot any mistakes, please feel free to let me know. Enjoy!

さあ 今日も始めましょうか
so, shall we start today as well?
昨日挟んだ栞の続きから
from the bookmark we left in yesterday
楽あれば苦あり
there’s no pleasure without pain
ストーリーは波の隨に
our stories are at the mercy of the waves

深い海を抜け
fall out of the deep sea
空飛ぶ街に繰り出し
fly through the sky until we reach a town
そこから降りれなくなり
but we’re unable to get down
脈絡のないような展開も
surely, even these disjointed developments
きっとオンリーなストーリー
are unique stories

高鳴る所には忘れず付箋を
don’t forget to label all the exciting moments
時々くるマイナスな面に備えて
to protect you against the moments that get you down
重宝して
they’ll come in handy

ひらりひらり
softly, gently
めくりめくる
turning, turning
ストーリーストーリー
our stories, our stories
忙しない ネバーエンディング
are engaging and neverending

いつになれば終わるんだ
I wonder when it’ll end?
皆目見当もつかない
I have no clue
お生憎、見当もつかない
unfortunately, there’s no way to know

さあ 今日も始めましょうか
so, shall we start today as well?
栞挟んだページ涙の跡
at the page we bookmarked, stained with tears
苦しくて思わず閉じた
hurting, we had closed it without thinking
理由は忘れずに
but we haven’t forgotten the reason

読み進める程
the more we read
白紙のページが
the blank white pages
お気に召すままに
become delightful
起承転結をこしらえて
beginnings, developments, and conclusions

ひらりひらり
softly, gently
めくりめくる
turning, turning
ストーリーストーリー
our stories, our stories
喜怒哀楽忙しい
are busy and full of emotion

のらりくらり
lazily, idly
巡り巡る
turning, turning
ストーリーストーリー
our stories, our stories
自己責任険しい
are difficult to take self-responsibility for

破り捨てたい時は
when you want to tear it up
もう一回
just go back again
付箋の場所を読み返し
and read the labeled places
そこに在ったストーリー
in those stories
彩るキャラは居ましたか
was there a character vibrantly depicted there?
さあ 思い出して
now, remember!

ひらりひらり
softly, gently
めくりめくる

are busy and full of emotion

ひらりひらり
softly, gently
