One Piece openings 5 & 6 full translations

The fifth and sixth opening songs for One Piece were the first anime songs I translated myself ^^ I love pretty much all the One Piece songs, especially the openings, so that’s what motivated me to put my Japanese skills to work and translate them. After that, they were sitting idly on my computer for a while, but now that I have my own blog site, I figured why not post them here, along with other anime/j-pop songs I decide to translate. So here they are =) I plan to translate more of my favorite anime songs in the future, so keep a lookout!

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni: Revelations of the last episodes

Back when I watched the first episode of Higurashi, I never thought I would enjoy the series as much as I did. With the exception of the hinting at a horror/mystery element, the first episode made it seem like the series was going to be fairly predictable, with a cast of pretty stereotypical characters. But now that I’ve watched all of it, I have a totally different view of it. Sure, it has its share of flaws, but for the most part, its great blend of suspense, drama, horror, and mystery, all conveyed through a series of story arcs, each acting as a slightly different reality of the same story, while also revealing more of the main and complex mystery of the series as whole, really makes Higurashi a very unique show.
