S/mileage 2ch translations

Posted by Lurkette, in Translations, Matome 10 November 2013 · 885 views

So I figured while I have some down time I'll try translating some S/mileage-related 2ch matome threads. The translation would be a bit too much to put into a thread, so it will be here in case anyone wants to read it. I'll be picking topics I think are interesting and maybe combining two if they're short and similar (like I am now), but if anyone else has a thread they want translated I can certainly look into it. Note that I did take some creative liberties with the translation to make it funnier, more natural, etc. Change in background color is because I copy/pasted the thread to cut the time it takes down. Two for now, both related to S/mileage's songs.

I tried breaking up S/mileage's original songs into a ranking

They still haven't passed 50 songs?

10: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/11/04 00:20:41
A Gakkyuu Inchou
D Watashi no Kokoro

I can't

12: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/11/04 00:22:16

13: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/11/04 00:22:57
The strength of their melodies is completely different

22: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/11/04 00:40:45
I think Watashi no Kokoro is a nice song

11: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/11/04 00:21:19
Seems like those who like beautiful melodies can't follow S/mileage lately, huh

14: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/11/04 00:23:21
But I think Choikawa should be up higher, though

16: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/11/04 00:24:19
For me personally Sukijun is godly

17: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/11/04 00:24:54
With the SS and S songs I don't have any room to complain

20: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/11/04 00:26:46
The only one I admired for the lyrics is Chiririn

21: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/11/04 00:39:46
Tenshinranman is S rank

23: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/11/04 00:41:52
I want to hear your reasons for making Tenshinranman D rank

27: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/11/04 00:53:25
Tenshinranman's composition of abundant, interwoven melodies is equal to that of Panyasan or PMPW

29: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/11/04 00:57:42
Godly songs:Yume Miru 15sai UchoutenLOVE PMPW Junjou hankouki
Famous songs:Ganbaranakutemo ee nen de Shortcut Samui ne Ee ka

Godly songs:Urabanchou Nee Senpai
Famous songs:Panyasan no arubaito Gakkyuu Inchou Tenshinranman Yuugure Koi no Jikan 

30: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/11/04 01:06:41
Tenshinranman is all jumbled together and even looking at the parts separately the melody is too sloppy

31: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/11/04 02:29:54
But the melody has a flowing stream of undulations, you know, then progressing to a simple harmony

So being able to sing with that large a feeling of scale is a charm of only the 6 member S/mileage, not found in the original members

I'll be looking for them to rearrange some first-gen songs in the fall tour

32: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/11/04 02:31:58
I've started to like S/mileage because they belt out the A melody or whatever it may be

Because the songs calm me and I can listen to them

33: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/11/04 02:32:39
It's okay to decide that Smile Sensation is the best idol album of 2013, right?



Speaking of S/mileage's amazingness, I don't think they have a single song that's bad

But they aren't selling like MM or C-ute or even J=J
Why is that?

That's all

184: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/09(水) 06:56:42.76 0
Because this isn't the era of selling just songs

That's all

186: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/09(水) 07:07:11.72 0
But normal artists can sell if you can get an ordinary person to listen to them

189: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/09(水) 07:10:04.97 0
If that's the case then it's like all the artists who aren't selling are producing bad music, isn't it

190: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/09(水) 07:10:54.00 0
It's becoming common knowledge that Musume not selling is due to crap music

192: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/09(水) 07:11:46.26 0
Then that would make it strange that AKB who produces only crap songs sells so well

193: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/09(水) 07:12:56.41 0
At least Koi suru Fortune Cookie and Manatsu no Sounds good
were more highly valued than any of today's H!P songs
They don't want to lose to Golden Era Musume.
But it looks like those facing the Golden Era are in admiration of those members

194: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/09(水) 07:13:45.27 0
AKB has 13 consecutive million sellers so does that mean that those 13 songs are good now?

197: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/09(水) 07:14:58.42 0
That's more than all the Golden Era had with Love Machine, Renai 21, Happy Summer and The Peace, though lol

201: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/09(水) 07:21:05.52 0
Well then if H!P sang AKB songs would they become million-sellers?
If AKB sang H!P songs would they not even be able to sell 100,000?
It's really unrelated to the songs
It's about who sings them

205: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/09(水) 07:31:08.19 0
They'd probably sell

216: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/09(水) 09:59:40.83 O
I think they would sell
Conversely even C-ute singing with sudden gloriousness they can't sell 100,000

Suki yo, Junjou Hankouki。
Tabidachi no Haru ga Kita

I think these two are really underrated
They're incredible

10: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:10:23.05 0
I mostly agree, but only
Koi ni Booing Boo!

Samui ne。
Tabidachi no Haru ga kita
are not very good

15: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:14:27.16 0
I think Tabidachi no Haru ga Kita is overflowing with feelings of euphoria
Do you not understand how good it is?
I deem it worthy of top ranks

46: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:32:06.92 0
It's a song of separation but it's really positive
No one but S/mileage could sing a song like that

103: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:51:09.93 0
A long time ago Candies sang like that, you know

13: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:12:29.10 0
I'm not an H!P wota so I don't really know S/mileage's stuff、
but Onaji Jikyuu de Hataraku Tomodachi no Bijin Mama really catches my attention

14: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:12:57.05 0
It's an H!P thing
The lyrics just fall into place

21: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:19:38.83 0
Is Tabidachi no Haru that unpopular with S/m wota?
I'm a Musume wota and I love it
By the way I'm the one who started the thread

24: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:22:43.16 0
S/mileage's songs are precious

65: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:38:29.82 0
No matter which the lyrics are too wrapped up in the glorification of youth and it makes me want to die...
Like Kiiroi Jitensha and Uchouten, especially

76: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:41:32.07 0
But I love Kiiroi Jitensha to Sandwich
I wonder if they won't do it live

32: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:26:04.74 0
I thought this was the same thread
I think they have a lot of good songs but that's just Tsunku's amazingness
Isn't just awesomeness patronized by Tsunku?

36: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:27:43.93 0
It's up to your opinion if it's good music or not
For me all of S/mileage's recent stuff is only at 70-80 points

37: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:28:26.55 0
Because Tsunku must be a genius if he can make such cute songs
I think it's because cute songs suit S/mileage so only they receive all good music
Any one of MobekiJ has a lot cool-type songs, too

40: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:29:29.29 0
So did Berryz and C have a lot of good songs in their early days?

41: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:29:38.84 0
Well it's about the members who activate his inspiration, right?

43: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:30:50.93 0
Boo is the only song I'll acknowledge as crap
It falls under the world's worst 2 songs along with that particular legendary shit song

44: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:31:35.32 0
I really like Boo

45: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:31:54.34 0
For me as well only Boo is impossible

I like Tabidachi but opinions of it really are divided, aren't they?

54: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:34:15.10 0
I don't hate it too much
It just doesn't have any punch to it

58: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:36:12.99 0
Sadly everything after Tachiagirl has been pretty mediocre

60: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:37:17.50 0
PMPW and Choto Mate Kudasai are pretty good songs, though

63: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:37:48.91 0
The coupling songs are also all good

64: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:38:00.19 0
I like Tabidachi, but
SukiJun and Kanashiki Amefuri sound way too much alike

77: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:41:44.22 0
Were they both Ookubo's?
Because there isn't much he's not involved in

68: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:39:10.93 0
To think that their skill is top in H!P is very conceited

71: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:39:53.11 0
Well when it's seen from the eyes of a wota it has to be forgiven

83: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:44:19.51 0
Good songs or bad songs, it's all good, so they should do a solo live
I was watching last year's fall tour video and even though I was thinking I would go to the next one
There was no next one

86: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:45:23.97 0
First of all they need to make lots of release events
If they don't then they won't be able to keep up with planning for a tour

93: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:47:29.42 0
Go to a release event
They sing like ten songs

91: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:47:14.79 0
Really? So I should go to a release event?
But CDs haven't really come out lately
Right now is Naruchika? Was there a presentation or something of a new song?

98: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/08(火) 23:48:34.23 0
A new song is coming out
Probably in December or January
That's what I'm hoping

Before Akimoto said "Tsunku has a Middle School 2nd year little girl living inside of him

Only Tsunku can write those feelings of a pubescent middle school girl

You can say that Shortcut was the quintessential idol song of the 2010s
Using a simple rotation of chords and covering it with the skill of the 7th and 9th with riffs became a real breakthrough for Tsunku

I wonder if you could say its failure to sell out was also his first major stumble

123: 名無し募集中。。。 2013/10/09(水) 00:04:21.27 0
Junjou Hankouki is perfectly composed of a middle school girl's feelings lol
He really can write things like that lol

If you're talking about defects I wonder if it would be about the shabby state of the MVs
If they had gone to film on location around Saipan I wouldn't have thought it strange for them to get their big break

I think Bijin Mama is a shit song but it's just so good live. It mows down any challenge act.

If you're talking about taking the route of a noontime B-rate drama then Sexy Boy has nothing to do with S/m
But if it's C-ute then there's Kiss Me

Then I would recommend you listen to Berryz from 05 to 07 lol
The composition is pretty close to S/m's so I think you'll like it lol

Some good, mostly civil discussions, although I'm with numbers 10 and 23 in the first thread. I'd be interested to see other people's ranks, whether by the SS-F rank or by using the circle symbols.

That entire list was so wrong but not seeing Smile Blues as SS rank irks me beyond belief.
