That translation project: Rakuen Project

Wow, it’s been more than a year since my last song translation. Decided to do this on a whim.

Ray’s vocals are amazing, I almost thought it was Mami Kawada doing the song ww

Title: Rakuen Project
Artist: Ray

Believe in me
I’ll give you paradise now
Dive into the garden of love
Let’s have the best dream together

Unstoppable impulse and love, you know? Seriously, let’s go
Go on a quick attack, the project is important
The method and order is really trivial, just love me instinctively

Hey, it’s all right even if I can’t be your only one.
Let’s be happy with everyone
This love which I’ve accepted is the strongest scandal in the galaxy

I’m not a princess who simply waits
So boldly, freely, do it now!
Look, the door to the future has opened

Yes, you’re my only target
Be my side, smiling like that forever
Believe in me
I’ll give you paradise now
Dive into the garden of love
Let’s have the best dream together

That reaction of yours is rather subtle? Might be a shock
There’s adversity but, continue with the project
The thought process has been interrupted, try your best to somehow resist it

Being just a friend is always painful
The hopes and anxieties which I want to hold tightly onto sweetly wells up in my chest
In a heartbreaking spiral

I want to protect your everything at any moment
So get up now with all your might after crying
Because I’ll tell you “I love you” no matter how many times

Directly delivering this first and last love
The resonance of destiny begins here
Feel it with me

The paradise unfolding before your eyes
Bring forth your courage, take a step forward
Don’t give up before the final judge

Being that gentle is unfair
These feelings will never change, even though it’s in a roundabout way
May you one day somehow get used to your special presence

Hey, it’s all right even if I can’t be your only one.
Let’s be happy with everyone
This love which I’ve accepted is the strongest scandal in the galaxy

I’m not a princess who simply waits
So boldly, freely, do it now!
Look, the door to the future has opened

Yes, you’re my only target
Be my side, smiling like that forever
Believe in me
I’ll give you paradise now
Dive into the garden of love
Let’s have the best dream together

Yeah, here’s the song (on Youtube):

Was quite a challenge to translate this time. The song had some English parts, which didn’t really make it easier since I had to figure out how to fit those parts in. Also, quite some slang was used, with the phrases being detached rather than in full sentences, so I had to make a more literal translation.

Yeah, the translation might be wrong, I really suck at literal translations.

But meh, it was quite a fun experience. Took me almost 4 hours to translate though. I really got to improve those timings, orz.

Maybe I’ll try translating another song within the week, idk. =w=

For now, enjoy the translation. Hopefully it’s not filled with too many errors. Any feedback on translations is welcome! :D

    Awesome translation, it’s nice to see how the words of the song fit so perfectly with Momo’s thoughts and her role in the TLR series. This song is one of my favorite openings so it’s nice to be able to give the words to the full song a read. I don’t really have any knowledge of Japanese so I appreciate your translating work and I look forward to any other translations you might make in the future.

      Thanks, it’s great to see someone appreciate my translation works! I’m quite busy at the moment, so I won’t be translating much, but do stay tuned~
