[update] Posting Format: Now With Romaji!

I’ve received a few requests for the romaji of various songs, so I’m going to start posting transliterations alongside my translations. I just updated Kamiya Hiroshi and Ono Daisuke’s “Smiley Time” and “30minutes Shootin’ Star“, and I’m planning to work through the other translations I’ve posted and update each with romaji. (I received a request for the romaji of “Ashite he no Baton”, so I’ll probably update that song next.) Thanks for the feedback, guys!

Romaji. It’s like vitamin D for translations.

[translation] “30minutes Shootin’ Star” by Kamiya Hiroshi and Ono Daisuke

Let me start with the disclaimer that this song makes very little sense in Japanese and therefore probably even less sense in English. About half of it is written either in katakana or romaji in the original lyrics. Still, that’s not really the point. XD It’s a fun, upbeat song for the ending segment of the radio show; HiroC and OnoD invite the listener to take part in the show as their “co-star” and promise to keep DGS going forever. Plus, you get to hear them sing, “It’s a show time~!” multiple times, so what’s not to like?
