FAQ

Haven’t most of these been translated already?
I started setting this up primarily for the sake of the Kizuna releases, but because the Kizuna Best Partner series is technically considered a part of the same series as the old Adventure 02 one, I felt it would be good reference to have translations by one person (i.e. using the same translation style) for all of them in one place, so I decided to go back and do all of the original albums too, both for practice with these characters and for completion’s sake.

Are you going to do the other songs?
Despite everything, I’m a working adult who unfortunately doesn’t have all the time in the world, and this franchise has a lot of songs, so while I might take up something if I feel in the mood for it, my answer is going to be “don’t count on it.”

Will you romanize/transcribe the songs?
Unfortunately, no, because it’s too much work and I’m lazy I don’t want to have to deal with making a full romanization style guide, among other things. Sorry. That said, note that my policy on reposting allows for posting my lyric translations to wikis or other editable lyric aggregate sites as long as I’m credited and a proper link back is there, so please feel free to migrate these translations to someplace with transcriptions/transliterations if it helps.
