Yarudora – Double Cast, “DOOR” lyrics

Ack! I was MIA again. Sorry about that. Anyway, in case anyone was curious of where I was in the past month, I… actually burned out a little on my projects and life and everything. I asked Esperknight if he had any little projects he would like to see translated, which was when he introduced me to the Yarudora series.The first game in the series is titled “Double Cast”, and I think is most famous in these parts for being one of the few games where Yuki Kajiura did the soundtrack.

Fast forward to the time of posting, and the rough draft translation for the first standalone game in this animated visual novel series is now totally complete. Now to find someone to proofread it and tear it to shreds. : ) In the meantime, I decided to celebrate by translating the song lyrics. I hope to have more updates at a later date.

歌:小畑由香里     作詞:サエキけんぞう     作曲:江見 トモヒロ

Romaji Lyrics here.

潮騒の奥 揺れてる
あの夏の 日の 約束
目をとじて ごらん 夢は
色を消して しまったけど
The promise we made that summer’s day
Sways in the roar of the sea.
The dream that lulls my eyes closed
has lost all color, but-

セツナサ・ノカギハ・ダレモガ・ナクスカラ
Because we all have lost the key of sadness

記憶へと こぎ出そうよ
ふたりだけ の暗号で
キスの力をためそう
ひるんだなら もう会えない
Let’s set off to our memories
Through a code which belongs only to us,
Let us test the power of our kiss.
If we falter, we can’t meet again.

ケシキヲ・タドロウ・ラセンノ・ヤサシサヘ
グウゼン・ミツケタ・テノヒラ・ノビネツヘ
To trace the scenery to your spiraling kindness
To suddenly discover the slight warmth in your hand

開けてごらん 夏のドア
胸に ねむる 想い
めまいのような幻を
探そう
Let us open it: summer’s door.
The desire, sleeping in my chest,
Let us seek this vertigo-like phantom.

忘れないで あの風を
ふたり だけの 夜に
波の彼方 消えた秘密
たぐろう
Don’t forget that wind
that pulled our vanished secret
across the waves of that that night,
which belongs only to us.

鏡のなか 呼んでいる
もうひとつの 季節へと
腕をのばし たどりつこう
夢にジャンプ する時さ
Reaching my arm out towards
The other season which calls
Out through the looking glass
Is when I jump into the dream.

フアンヲ・カンジテ・オボレテ・シマイソウ
ヒトミノ・チカイヲ・ニギリ・ハナサナイデ
Yes, drowining in this feeling of anxiety
Do not release the hold you have on the pupils of my eyes

思い出して 夏のドア
ふりむいたら せつな
隠されてた
光がさしこむから
I remember it: summer’s door.
When I turn around,
The hidden light
Immediately shines through.

飛んでごらん 虹の上
今もできるはずさ
恋はいつも 危険な賭け
求める
Let us leap: Now, we should
Be able to reach the rainbows.
Love is always a perilous gamble
We wish for.

開けてごらん 夏のドア
胸に 残る 痛み
めまいに似た 熱い日々を
抱きよせ
Let us open it: summer’s door.
The remaining ache in my chest
Embraces these hot, vertigo-like days.

忘れないで 蒼い息
ふたり だけの 影が
波の上に ゆれた時の
きらめき
Don’t forget our pale breaths.
The shadows which belongs only to us
Sparkle when quivering
Atop the waves.

開けてごらん 夏のドア
胸に ねむる 想い
めまいのような幻を
探そう
Let us open it: summer’s door.
The desire, sleeping in my chest,
Let us seek this vertigo-like phantom.

忘れないで あの風を
ふたり だけの 夜に
波の彼方 消えた秘密
たぐりよせて
Don’t forget that wind
that pulls in our vanished secret
across the waves of that that night
which belonged only to us.

  1. That is really cool news! I played some of the Yarudora games a few years ago and thought they looked really interesting, although I barely understood what was happening. Are you guys working on the original PSX version or the PSP re-release? I think the later has better video quality but maybe didn’t run as well. Anyway, I wish ya luck on the project and look forward to seeing more!

    • I never heard of them besides maybe seeing some art for Sampaguita (because wow Maria’s way pretty).

      I translated from the psx script (as it had Disc 1 and Disc 2 messages) and I think Esper is using psx to playtest. It depends on whether he would be down to do it.
      AND THANK YOU! : )
