Sengoku Night Blood ~ 2nd Game Opening ~

Posted on Updated on

Forgot about this for the longest time until my memory was jogged by the second anniversary, oops. This is the second opening for the game. Color coded again for ease of reference: Oda, Toyotomi, Uesugi, Takeda, Sanada, Date, and Mouri. Everyone is in black. English translation only for meaning so don’t expect it to follow the tune.

Note1: I’m sure they did this on purpose, but in the first part when they all sing “ignite” the verb is pronounced “tenka”. Then it reaches the second part where they all sing and “tenka” is how you pronounce “the world” and basically what they’re all trying to go for (天下統一; tenka touitsu, unifying the country). A nice touch with repeated sounds.

Note2: I really like the line “ひとすじ閃く光; hitosuji hirameku hikari” because not only is it an alliteration, but “hitosuji” gives you the impression of the light being a straight line or like a guiding compass. But also something that is resolute and steadfast.

Note3: I was going to yell at Kenshin for bringing an idiom into the song, but this time it’s Yukimura LOL. The idiom “不即不離; fusokufuri” means neither too close or too far, and so can be applied as like “not too much x, not too much y”.

Note4: Nobunaga brings in the idiom “快刀乱麻; kaitou ranma” which means to act decisively to solve a complicated problem. Very Nobunaga-like LOL.

    Don’t worry I’m still alive, just need to done some stuffs before holiday~

    Ahh, this song… Actually I only listened to the trailer one and never trying to search the full ver, until you mention it, ili… Thank you for sharing this for us~

    Also, this about anniversary gacha. Maybe it’s just me, but I feel tricked by SNB since they put it for purchased jewels only :'(

    Thank you for your hard works…

      I think they only released the full version with their album / and as a single :’)) but, yeah, I forgot all about it until the second anniversary was coming up, haha.

      I’m hoping they’ll release it later with regular gems, like the re-runs of the first gacha. But yeah, hm, it’s a little annoying they locked it being paid gems.

    I love this song especially in the part of Masamune, haaaaaa…… His voice…. 💞💞💞 And in this part (選ぶは自由 君次第で)I thought it’s Masamune who sang this but it’s Motonari, amazing….. It sounds like him.

      I think I might like this song over the other openings too :’D but oh gosh there’s so many lines where it doesn’t sound like the person it says is singing LOL (aka. every time Konishi sings for me). I love the main chorus that they repeat.

      First place to look for these kind of things should always be the official channel, haha. But yes there is one there (and I linked it on my SNB main page).
