OP Romaji

Here's the romaji and translation to the opening theme: (done by me)

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
Vocals: Shimamiya Eiko

Furimuita Sono ushiro no (Shoumen daare?)
Kurayami ni Tsume o tatete (Yoru o hikisaita)

Amadare wa chi no shizuku to natte hoho o tsutai ochiru
Mou doko ni mo kaeru basho ga nai nara

Kono yubi tomare Watashi no yubi ni
Sono yubi goto Tsurete tte ageru
Higurashi ga naku Akazu no mori e
Atomodori wa Mou dekinai

Hitori-zutsu Kesarete yuku (Aoi honoo)
Kurayami no Sono mukou ni (Asa wa mou konai)

Kagami no naka de Ugomeki nobashite kuru musuu no te de
Saa Dareka o koko e izanai nasai

Oni-san kochira Te no naru hou e
Donna ni nigete mo Tsukamaete ageru
Higurashi ga naku Kemonomichi kara
Kikoete ita koe wa mou nai

Kono yubi tomare Watashi no yubi ni
Sono yubi goto Tsurete tte ageru
Higurashi ga naku Akazu no mori e
Atomodori wa Mou dekinai

Oni-san kochira Te no naru hou e
Donna ni nigete mo Tsukamaete ageru
Higurashi ga naku Kemonomichi kara
Kikoete ita koe wa mou nai


When Cicadas Cry
Vocals: Shimamiya Eiko

Behind where I looked back; (Who's in the front?)
In the dark, I raised my claws (and slashed apart the night)

The raindrops turn into droplets of blood and travel down my cheeks
If no place for me to return to exists anywhere anymore

Take these fingers, my fingers
I'll take all of your fingers away
To the unopenable forest where cicadas cry
I can't turn back anymore

Being made to disappear one by one; (the blue flames)
On the other side of the dark, (the morning won't come anymore)

Inside the mirror, with countless wriggling and stretching hands
Come on, lure someone here

Oni-san, come here, to where my hands sound
No matter how you'll get away, I'll capture you
From the animal trail where cicadas cry
The voice that I heard is no more

Take these fingers, my fingers
I'll take all of your fingers away
To the unopenable forest where cicadas cry
I can't turn back anymore

Oni-san, come here, to where my hands sound
No matter how you'll get away, I'll capture you
From the animal trail where cicadas cry
The voice that I heard is no more


...Very creepy. Definitely suits the girls of Higurashi. "I'll take all of your fingers away"?! o_O Is finger-chopping gonna occur in the series?

I'm slowly dying... the vocal version of you has me listening to it over and over. The lyrics are so pretty. So I was wondering, who sings it? I'd really like to know, if anyone knows.

Now I'm off to write lyrics. Nyaaa~

The vocal version of "you" (as well as "omoi") is sung by Yuzuki-san.

------------------------
While I'm on the topic, now that Watanagashi-hen is over, I have uploaded the second MAD video of the Nakani Kimi to Nageki no Sekai series:

Nakanai Kimi to Nageki no Sekai -Soshunfu-

Be careful though, since this second video features contents from both Watanagashi-hen and it's answer chapter, Meakashi-hen, so it may be spoiler for some (I watched it myself before I played Meakashi, and I didn't feel all that spoiled, so I guess it's not that big a deal).

I love these videos. Nice song too. What is it called and where can I download it (the song)? And where did you find the vocal version of You? It wasn't on that page listed a few posts back.

It's on one of the music CDs for the answer chapters (Higurashi no Naku Koro ni KAI) Thanks/You. And yeah, the vocals are pretty

*will hold out until Ep8 is subbed before watching the video*

And one of the Thanks/You tracks (10) reeally reminds me of the La Pucelle shop music o.O

What's the songs for the 2 MAD videos SushiY posted? They're really nice, especially the second one.

Well, it's listed in the credits at the end of the clips, but I guess the downsized videos might be too blurry to read.

Anyway,
Nakanai Kimi to Nageki no Sekai (the first MAD, based on Onikakushi-hen)
Featured Song: bewailing
Singer: Shinra Etsuko (新良 エツ子)
Music/Arrange: Hyomoto Yuuji (表本 裕二)

Nakanai Kimi to Nageki no Sekai -Soshunfu- (the second MAD, based on Watanashi and Meakashi-hen)
Featured Song: Tsuki wa Noboru, Watanashi wa Utau (月ハ昇ル, 私ハ詠ウ) (The Moon Rises, I Sing)
Singer: Shinra Etsuko
Music/Arrange: Hyomoto Yuuji

Both Shinra Etsuko and Hyomoto Yuuji belongs to ALTERNAIT, one of the groups who participated in the creation of these MADs. These songs were produced specifically for these videos.

If you looked at my first post, you'll notice that there's a third video, Utage (which happens to be my favorite), based on Tatarigoroshi-hen. But for the sake of not spoiling people too soon, I won't put that one up until the anime finishes airing Tatarigoroshi.

I tried to recompose Higurashi no Naku Koro ni with midi. I tried the best to be as close as possible to the original, however some synth effects are missing. Here is the result:

MP3: Higurashi no Naku Koro ni (Yamaha XG)

Midi: XG Compatible | GS Compatible (MS GS Synthesizer user would prefer this version)

Any thought?

It's funny that no one mentioned the ED yet. Well, I don't want to sound like a party crusher or something, but I find it pretty bad, especially because I'm so fond of the OP and the OST Kawai Kenji wrote so far (Gosh, that guy knows how to freak people out! lmao. Believe it or not, I saw him for the premiere of "Avalon", even asked him a question, and he's a really cool guy with a old-fashioned hairdo. At least, I suppose he still has it).

What do you think? I mean about the lyrics (mm....) the voice ( argh......) and the music (*gone to bed, bored)...

Really?! Kawai Kenji wrote this? I would never have known because his works usually sound alike such as Fate/Stay Night sounds a lot like some of the tracks in Vampire Princess Miyu.

I only like the OP song. The ED song is...just average, no offense. I listened through it once and now I already forgot what it sounded like. I guess it's the lyrics that distract me because I always try to find out what it's supposed to be saying and I get distracted and forget the overall melody of the song.

..

I like the ending theme. The slow melody fits with the show. It suffers from the common problem of indistinguishable English singing, however.

Yup he did. I'm a credit freak.

And lol, that's what I meant by "mmm..." about the lyrics of the ED. But I'm happy you like it, LJ, really.
What you call a common problem is sth I just can't take, even after years of Japanese studies...

Question enough?

You're right, -EV-, but do you think it's enough to make a good ED?

Oni-san kochira Te no naru hou e<< I love this line, so creepy >w<

I don't know much japanese though, but it might sound more poetic(and make more sense) if "Te" here refers to the higurashi's legs.
