Sengoku Night Blood ~ Anime Opening ~

Posted on Updated on

Translated upon request. I’ve also color coded the armies for your leisure: Oda, Toyotomi, Uesugi, Takeda, Sanada, and Date. Everyone is in black. Since this is just a translation please don’t expect the English to actually fit the tune of the song.

Note1: Kenshin’s line about the evening moon is strange. From what I can see a “matsuyoi (待宵)” is a night where one waits for someone who is supposed to come. And then a “yoitsuki (宵月)” is an evening moon only seen in the early hours of the night. The only together phrase I can find is “matsuyoi no tsuki (待宵の月)” essentially meaning waiting the night before for the full moon on the 15th day of the lunar calendar, aka. waiting on August 14th. LOL I think he’s just being hella poetic?

Note2: Everyone’s line about destiny dwelling in their body. The kanji there is specifically “enishi (縁)” which refers more to connections and bonds. It’s talking about destiny as the mysterious force that binds two people together.

Note3: Not really a note I just wanted to point out how cool it is that the rapping part has all the guys saying the keywords in their character songs.

      Sometimes it feels like Kenshin is too cultured for me LOL he composes poetry, he plays the biwa, he’s so steady and secure in who he is and where he’s going, and he meditates to purify his mind and body. What the heckie! He’s super prince charming, ahaha.

      Haha, this is the full version of the song :D but yeah the rap part has the name of their character song in it, basically. Oda’s about “staining the world black”, Sanada’s about “moonlit something something”, Uesugi has “justice” in it, Date has “kakuran (disturbance) romanticist”, Takeda is all about “victory” and “battle”, and Toyotomi’s “hen-gen-ji-zai” is literally “ever-changing appearance”.
