What do you guy's think of "Link" by L`Arc~En~Ciel. This is the opening theme of the Fullmetal Alchemist movie.

I feel that this song fits Fullmetal Alchemist the most. I feel like it was specially crafted for Fullmetal Alchemist. Just listening to the lyrics gives me this genuine feel that only watching the Fullmetal Alchemist can give. I love this song so much and I listen to it a few times a day. It's a good tandem with "Lost Heaven", the FMA movie ending theme. Yes, the brothers are apart and long to see each other again. Yet when they are finally together again they lose everything else.

Anyway, here are the lyrics in romanji.

Oboete iru kai? Osanai goro kara
tsumasaki dachi de
todokanai tobira ga atta yo ne
Jikan wo wasurete
samayoi tsukushita
meiro no michi wa itsumo soko ni iki ataru
Muishiki ni kimi no egao wo
sagasu no wa tomerarenai
Nani hitotsu kawarazu ni ima mo
boku wa kakete yuku

Tatoe haruka tooku hanarebanare
ni natte mo... tsunagari au omoi
Itazura na unmei ga, furikakarou tomo
kowareyashinai

Nozomareru asu ga
sono saki ni aru to
atama no okude dare mo
ga kizuite iru hazu sa
Harewataru hibi ni
arasoi no dogu ga
kiesaru toki wo
itsuka kimi ni misetai na
Kizutsuke au no wo yamenai
ochite yuku sekai dakedo
Kimi ni deaeta koto dakede mou
nani mo kowaku wa nai

Tatoe kono karada ga
itsuka moetsukitemo iisa
kimi ni sasagu nara
Oozora e to boku wa
mashiro ni mai agari
mamotte ageru

-bridge-

Tatoe haruka tooku hanarebanare
ni natte mo... tsunagari au omoi
Itazura na unmei ga, furikakarou tomo
kowareyashinai

Tatoe kono karada ga
itsuka moetsukitemo iisa
kimi ni sasagu nara
Itsuka umare kawaru
sekai ga sono me ni
todoku to iina


Translation in English:

Can you still remember, when we were young?
Even by the use of tip-toe, there was that door that we couldn't reach.
Forgetting about the time, always lost and wandering and ending up there in that path of the maze.
I subconsciously search for your smile and can't stop doing so.
And even now, nothing's changed and I'm still running forward.

No matter how very far apart we are
...there is this feeling that connects us.
Even if an ill fate were to befall us,
that can't be destroyed.

I hoped for a tomorrow wherein everyone thought that
there were no more tools of war and someday show you that on a sunny day.
Everyone can't stop hurting each other and this world is falling.
When I finally meet you I will have nothing more to fear.

No matter how much this body burns, it's ok, I'll offer it all to you.
I will fly up to the blue sky in white to give you protection.

-bridge-

No matter how very far apart we are
...there is this feeling that connects us.
And even if an ill fate were to befall us,
that can't be destroyed.

No matter how much this body burns, it's ok, I'll offer it all to you.
Someday when this world has changed, we'll reach it and it will be all fine.


*I had to make a few changes when it was translated into English. It's weird and vague if it's translated directly without changes. Gah... Japanese and its vagueness.

I hope you like it.

I believe that there was already a thread for "Link", but I can not seem to find it currently. L'Arc en Ciel is a rather versatile band, but I thought Link sounded rather different from some of the darker songs on their last C.D. Awake. It is definetly not my favourite song by the band, but I found it rather upbeat. Personally, I just think that the lyrics are rather inspiring and fit the the general mood of F.M.A. (I really wasn't a fan of Tetsu singing the chorus though.) I liked Link a lot more than the ending "Lost Heaven." The music video still manages to baffle me somehow.
You did a rather nice job with the translation into English; you maintained the meaning of the song and didn't confuse the syntax. It is rather hard to maintain the original meaning of the song without making it sound garbled and vague. I was looking up some of the words in my dictionary, and there are numerous meanings for some of them.

I do agree that L'Arc~En~Ciel is a very versatile band, that's why I consider them my favorite J-Rock band, or Japanese artist for that matter. I didn't really like the music video of "Link" much. I'd rather watch the FMA movie opening instead. I wish that there is an official "Link" music video only featuring FMA. When my video editing skills reach a certain level wherein I can recreate some things that are present in the FMA movie opening, I'll make a music video for "Link" in the same style as the FMA movie opening, but using the full 4:48 song. But that's probably a few years from now.

Regarding the translation, thanks! I tried to keep the translation as close to the original as possible but there are just so many connotations for some of the lines. I've checked some of the translations made by other people and it seems that they altered many parts of the song to make it sound better when said. But so far that's the closest I can go without making it sound really awkward. The translation was easy... but choosing the right meanings for the lines was hard.

BTW, did I hear you right? Tetsu was the one singing the chorus? I'm positive that Hyde was the only one that sang during the entire song.

Kenji: Wow, you are right. I have no idea why he sounds vaguely like Testu though. Hyde sounds more nasal than usual. His voice has a much warmer and deeper quality on the Awake C.D. Perhaps I am so used to their earlier songs where Hyde and Tetsu sang together.

The chorus requires a lower pitch of voice, thus the sound produced will be a little different...
Whenever I utter out

"Tatoe haruka tooku hanarebanare ni natte mo... tsunagari au omoi
Itazura na unmei ga, furikakarou to mo koware yashinai"

and the other part that starts with "tatoe..." my voice can't be same when I sang out both part of:

"Oboete iru kai? Osanai goro kara tsumasaki dachi de
todokanai tobira ga atta yo ne
Jikan wo wasurete samayoi tsukushita
meiro no michi wa itsumo soko ni iki ataru
Muishiki ni kimi no egao wo sagasu no wa tomerarenai
Nani hitotsu kawarazu ni ima mo boku wa kakete yuku"

and

"Nozomareru asu ga sono saki ni aru to
atama no okude dare mo ga kizuite iru hazusa
Harewataru hibi ni arasoi no dogu ga
kiesaru toki wo itsuka kimi ni misetai na
Kizutsuke au no wo yamenai ochite yuku sekai dakedo
Kimi ni deaeta koto dakede mou nani mo kowaku wa nai"

I LOVE the song! Yeah, the music video isn't very fancy. It looked a bit cheap and anyway the FMA movie opening is far more better than the original vid. It's a shame that they didn't use that long version in the opening, but I understand. It would' ve been too long.

GAAAHHH! Chiisana PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE change your avatar to something non-Yaoi! That Ed x Al yaoi kissing thing is sickening me... No offense but it's because I'm a guy. Having something like that wouldn't be so nice if it's paired up with the song "Link"... its like... defiling the meaning of the song. Please... take it off.

Well, I think you missed the point. "Link", due to lack of better words, is like telling the listener the wish of the brothers. They want to be together in a family and brotherly way. But her avatar screams Ed x Al yaoiness. OMG! That's incest already.

BTW, Kenji... I did just notice now due to your sig that the Mr. Pringles logo, if the mustache is inverted, looks like the new Mazda emblem. LOL.

Hahaha... real brothers will not commit incest...
So I am pretty sure Ed and Al won't commit it... XDXD
Whats wrong with L'arc~En~Ciel?
I mean...this song will be too high pitched if Romi paku sing it... Her singing voice and acting voice are completely different... While her speaking voice bears assembles to an average teen boy [14-16 yr olds], her women voice will be unleashed when she sings... wink.gif

-------
Actually thats the Mazda logo...and if both of the strokes are inverted...it will look like Mr. Pringles

My avatar isn't yaoi T-T It's shounen ai~ (Haha okay I won't argue in this one xD)

but one thing is clear; I don't interpret the song with Elricest at all. I interpret is as normal brotherly, family love.
My Elricest fandom is something else, so please don't get me wrong xD

About my avatar. Can I stick with this? T-T There isn't any rules bout having shounen ai avatar here, right? >.< Why can't I have Elricest avatar when other have RoyxEd? T___T

Ok...ok...you can have it...
That yaoi/shonen-ai/hentai avatar discussion ends here, right now...
This is a tread dedicate for the song Link by L'Arc~En~Ciel


Thanks for your understanding, co-operation etc etc...
