Sengoku Night Blood ~ Blacken ~

Posted on Updated on

Lastly Nobunaga’s song!

Note1: Racked my brain over the song title because the verb is in the imperative form so it’s a command to stain something black. But “Stain it Black” just sounds so… lame LOL. Dye it Black? Taint it Black? Ebonize? I don’t know if Blacken is any better but I TRIED.

Note2: Are any of these even making sense anymore? My translations are either getting worse or Masamune and Nobunaga have difficult songs LOL. The line about banding together in the favorable wind was ??? but I think what he’s getting at metaphorically is that he’s gonna be the ruler of the world so basically everything will be going in his favor (including the wind) so swear loyalty and band together underneath him.

クロソマレ
Blacken

燦(きら)めきが置いていった過去にはもう一切興味はない
The radiance no longer has any interest in the left behind past
天を知り 地を見下ろす野望(ゆめ)をみた なら勝ち獲るまで
Knowing the heavens, I saw an ambition (a dream) overlooking the earth, all that’s left is securing victory

先見の明 動向不明 未来を描け
Foresight // Unknown trends // Draw the future

何千何回 戦って 一心不乱 身削って
Fight thousands of battles, with heart and soul, undergoing hardships
当然 想定範囲内の勝利判定 敵はナシ
Naturally victory has been decided within the range of expectations // There are no rivals
臨機応変 柔軟に 一点突破 冷静に
Adapting to requirements of the moment, being flexible, breaking through points calmly
全力で全面に展開を
Expanding all-out at full force
静寂を包むように漆黒染まれ
Dye it jet-black as if engulfing it in silence

生きている間だけ名を残す好機がやってくる
The opportunity will come to leave your name behind, only during the time you’re alive
冷酷の裏の焦熱荒れ 狂う嵐もたじろぐ
A wild scorching heat runs underneath ruthlessness // Even the chaotic storm falters

天啓の命 新革命 未来を掴め
A life of divine revelation // A new revolution // Grasp the future

三千世界 手にとって 一意専心 名誉として
The whole universe will be single-mindedly obtained as a distinction
尋常じゃない情抱いた存在に 忠誠を
Give your loyalty to this presence harboring feelings out of the ordinary
浮いた雲蹴散らして 一致団結 追い風に
Scatter the drifting clouds // Band together for a common cause in the favorable wind
天下統一する日は近い
The day to unification is close
進撃を阻むなら漆黒となれ
If the advance is thwarted, become jet-black

何千何回 戦って 一心不乱 身削って
Fight thousands of battles, with heart and soul, undergoing hardships
当然 想定範囲内の勝利判定 敵はナシ
Naturally victory has been decided within the range of expectations // There are no rivals
臨機応変 柔軟に 一点突破 冷静に
Adapting to requirements of the moment, being flexible, breaking through points calmly
全力で全面に展開を
Expanding all-out at full force

天下統一する日は近い
The day to unification is close
静寂を包むようにクロソマレ
Blacken it as if engulfing it in silence

      Erk, I actually don’t remember the BGM during parts of the anime (only the endings and stuff) but if you’re looking for just the instrumental version of this song then if you buy the album on iTunes or wherever it comes with the song, the instrumental version, and the opening of the anime but sung by the leader of the army only, aka. in this case Nobunaga alone singing the opening.

    It might’ve been better (and maybe a little cheesy) if it were named “Stain the World Black” or something. “Dye the Blackened World”? Oh well. I think the song as a whole is meh? I mean, Hideyoshi and Masamune are top spots for me, but everyone else is some jumbled mess for ranking. Kenshin and Yukimura are definitely at the bottom (sorry Kenshin), but then Nobunaga and Shingen are in this awkward middle/last place area. Anyway, the song’s style reminds me of “Outer Science” which is from the Kagerou Project. I personally love this cover, but there is screeching involved so you might not like that part of it, haha (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lC3f2wycBYo). I think the songs themselves are difficult. I guess lyrical wise, “Blacken” sort of reminds me of something Uverworld would write. “Boku no Kotoba de wa nai Kore wa Bokutachi no Kotoba” and “Colors of the Heart” are some examples. Abingdon Boys School could also work because some of those lyrics are also ???? sometimes LMAO. “HOWLING” and “STRENGTH” are songs to check out for them pfft.

      I’m pretty sure that was the implication but I didn’t want to add another word in that wasn’t actually there >< dammit Nobunaga why do you have to try and be so enigmatic. Haha, fair enough, for me Hideyoshi and Masamune are top too in terms of singing and song but I think Nobunaga's is third for me for song composition because that choir part!! And then Shingen, Yukimura, and Kenshin… although these last three are like really really low, woops.

      Ooh, I can totally see why this song reminds you of those songs |D they all share that rock-ish style. Hahaha, yeah I was tilting my head at a lot of his lyrics though to be honest they were easier than Masamune's with all its strange free-floating particles but Nobunaga has all these idioms that every time i see my ten word explanations for the 4 kanji word I can't help but wince.

    O ロ O ))) …this…THIS IS MY FAV SO FAR. I love the guitar, and those epic riffs, and the faint chorus of a choir in the background during the bridge. AND his voice sounds great! Uuu my heart ;; 7 ;; )) ~ This just have too many of my fav things in here xD. Thanks for this! I think they make sense~ dw too much about them, since they’re still cohesive.

    Btw, I keep mishearing the lyrics at 1:40 as “drink gatorade~”

      *GASP* TRAITOR TO MASAMUNE’S SONG!! Just kidding, just kidding |D;; yeah I was surprised to like this as much as I did because I didn’t think much about the preview (though I did like the visuals at the end of the anime) but I was instantly caught by the choir chorus and epic guitar. I was dying at all the kanji and idioms he was using!! He just kept using those 4 kanji idioms that made me have to write out huge sentences to explain them, haha. I always crack up hearing these lyrics though because you can hear the natural arrogance in them.

      L O L I’M NEVER GONNA UNHEAR THAT.
