On corrections

Re: My re-translation of Kitto Sora wa Kitto Aoi In fact, I don’t think I’ve ever really mentioned it, but I make little corrections to lyrics all the time, even to really old stuff of mine. Even stuff that is so cringey, I can’t believe I wrote it like that… but I get a lot of …

What is this

Holy crap guys I’ve been translating lyrics for 9 years now. That almost seemed impressive until I realized that after nearly a decade my Japanese still sucks.

Love Live Lyrics

Sorry for the giant surge of old Love Live lyrics. I did some translations for videos for a friend and figured I might as well post them here too… Promise there will be some new not Love Live stuff soon.

Oh gosh…

I’ve been using Adblock for a long time so I didn’t realize how bad the ads on got. Guess that means I gotta get better about actually posting stuff here. ._.

In case anyone is interested in what I watch…

My Anime-Planet username is Rizu01. I also have a My Anime List here, since that seems to be more popular for whatever reason. I still prefer Anime-Planet, though, so I’m better about updating it. It doesn’t have my manga yet, either.

7 Years…?

This website is going to be 7 years old in September. It started as a summer project translating Pokemon themes on youtube for practice learning Japanese, and I think I started submitting School Rumble lyrics to around then too.

Animal Crossing Outfits

Hey, everyone. Just a heads up that I will be participating in the NaAniTaMo challenge, which means I will be doing roughly one translation a day each day for the month of November. This also means… I’m going to be mostly lazy about doing translations for October. :p

In the meantime, I wanted to do something I’ve been meaning to do since I converted this site to a blog format… post my Animal Crossing outfits! If you play Animal Crossing: New Leaf, you can import the following “cosplay” outfits into your game to use for your character. Right now, they are mostly (all?) dresses. I may do some shirts and male outfits in the future… but I couldn’t think of any particularly interesting male anime costumes that I could duplicate in Animal Crossing very well.

New WordPress design!

Welcome to the new Rizu’s Anime Lyrics! (And now, blog!!) I’ve been intending on a redesign for a couple of years now, but, as my less frequent updating may have suggested, I simply haven’t had the time to do so. WordPress was my solution. Aside from the simplicity of maintaining this site, using WordPress should allow …
