Aw, well... I was really confused to hear this song! I wonder, what made Arakawa-sensei put a Russian song into his anime?
The_Lazy_Alchemist
I thought it was german...I mean, full metal alchemist is basically based on something with Germany if it's got the word "fuhrer" in it. But then I could be mistaken about which language that word came from...

The song is just based on the anime. The anime is set somewhere in Europe be it in Germany or Russia. Of course the option of having a foreign song would be available. And it wasn't a bad idea either. If the anime doesn't exactly use japanese names and they use names like Edward Elric and Roy Mustang, then I would sort of expect a song like this anyway. And by the way, Arakawa-sensei is a woman. wink.gif
Omakase Shimasu
Well, I don't know about Arakawa having much of a say in the FMA anime production <___< And him being a female... I just consider Arakawa a "them". This everlasting debate about sensei being female/male is slowly but surely getting to poor me. wacko.gif
RolfKaese
better question: what made BONES to put a russian song into FMA?
answer: dunno, but the song itself is great :,3
filimonovna
Well, The_lazy_Alchemist, the song IS Russian, believe me happy.gif. If you want, I can translate it. But it is really surprising - I would expect an english or a german song in that anime, because the names came from that languages.

yes, the song is great... And so sad... I'm always about to cry when I hear it in anime - because the words in it are so painful... *cries*
Omakase Shimasu
Ooooh, I'd like a translation~ Me, me, me!!

^__^;; But now that you're mentioning it... what are you guys talking about? Which Russian song where?
RolfKaese
lol? You can hear it at the end of episode 3, Kase... and in the OST, its called "Brothers" by.... forgot it *dropz*
motoh
Michiru Oshima & BEPA for the song. Post translation! Post post post!
ScaR
yea plz post it happy.gif ... it is a really great song... happy.gif

Ah, thanks for the info, Rolf. ^__^ You're such a sweet guy.

*rushes off to watch ep 3 again*

Btw. translations, filminonovna? You're stirring up a crowd here! biggrin.gif
filimonovna
Aw, well... Here is it! There's no author of this song mentioned BTW. And I also wanted to say, that those are not just japanese singing russina, but true russian kids singing good and gramtically right russian song.

Ed:
Excuse me, little brother
It is all my fault -
One can't try to bring back
What earth has taken

The one who knows the law of being
Could help me to find the answer.
I was dreadfully mistaken -
There's no medicine from death.

Both:
Loved mother, gentle,
We loved you so much!
But all our power was wasted.

Ed:
I seduced you
With beautyful hope:
Bring our family back.
Brother, it's all my fault.

Al:
Don't cry, don't be sad, big brother.
It was not only your fault.
We have one way:
Crumble our fault down to bottom.

I have nothing to blame you for,
And I'm not hurt at all.
Our common sin is heavy -
We wanted to be the strongest.

Both:
Loved mother, gentle,
We loved you so much!
But all our power was wasted.

Al:
I seduced myself
With beautyful hope:
Bring our family back.
Brother, it's all MY fault.

Both:
But all we wanted to forget,
We wanted to redo, to forget...
One can't try to bring back
What earth has taken.

Ice
Oh.....I have always thought the song was sad but I never thought the lyrics could be even more sorrowful. Poor Ed and Al......Thanks for the translation though...
Quistis88
Ohhh, what a beautiful translation . . .

This time, I can cry to it while I know the lyrics! Yes!
wolfi1412

Omakase Shimasu

Um, sorry I don't know either. ^__^;; But I would love to have 'em myself too.

Been listening to this song alot, wanted to know if anyone has/knows the russian lyics? Either just in russian of possibly translated in enlish letters so I can read them smile.gif

i found this fan made mv fearuring the song "brother", with chinese translated lyrics as subtitles
my download screwed up but i will give you the first part of the song. It's not direct translation (russian->chinese->English) but hey, better than nothing
it matches the story so well!!

Please forgive me, my little brother
I have sin before your eyes
Lives that are buried by the earth
Can never return

Is there someone who knows the law of life
I hope he can help me find the answer
I realise that I have commited the worst mistake
But cannot find a cure to correct it

Dear Mother, Kind Mother
We loved you so much
But all our efforts
Have gone to waste

Tempting you with the return to our home
and our beautiful memories
My little brother
This is all my fault
---------------------------------------------
Don't cry, Don't be sad﹐ My Brother
The fault is not only yours
We have only one way out
It is to pay the price for our sins

I have nothing to blame you for
I have nothing to complain about
Our sin is that
We thought we could exceed others

Dear Mother, Kind Mother
We loved you so much
But all our efforts,
Have gone to waste

Rebuilding our home
This wonderful hope
Tempting you
This is all my fault
----------------------------------
But what should we do
How to retrieve? How to forget?
Hoping to gain back what the earth has taken away
Is already impossible.
Omakase Shimasu
T~T Beautiful...
Tashi
thanks for the translations.... suddenly that song is more depressing.

zeno
why are there russian songs in anime? O_o...nobody relaly knows, it's teh great mystery. Why was there a portugese song in the wolf's rain ost? why the Gits Saccy OP in russian?

*hums mystery tune*
Gashole
The anime itself takes place in the west. Hohenheim. That sounds so German.
RolfKaese
actually it is german ^^
Quistis88
Really? It's German? But I once input the characters of the song name into some translator for Russian, and it still came out as "Brothers". huh.gif
Kokoro no Hana
RolfKaese is right, Hohenheim is German

Hohenheim Elric
Edward and Alphone's father, gets his name from a town in Germany. It's also the surname of Philippus Aureolus Theophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, more often referred to as Theophrastus von Hohenheim, an alchemist with the penname of Paracelsus. Von Hohenheim, on its own, is the equivalent of calling oneself something like Jack of London. However, it indicates Arakawa spent at least some time digging through introductory alchemical histories or texts, that he would chose such a name for the boys' father.

Well I was really about to mention Ghost In The Shell: StandAlone Complex and their 2 opening songs(Inner Universe and Rise) made by the same Russian woman: Origa. I don't mind for russian songs in the anie since so far they have proved to be beautiful.
Maybe there are quite some Russian in Japan and both countries have long commercial relationships (not that far from Siberia or Vladisvostok). As far as I know, Origa has been quite a while in Japan.

More information gathered on a French website:

Song title: "Bratja"
Performer: "BEPA"
Song writers: "Seija Mizushima and Tatiana Naumova"

And here is the website where you can find the French critic on the OST 1: click here
Senefen
I just googled the song and found this
[<snip> site. Downloaded it after hearing the translation.
What to do.
Put it on CD/MP3 player etc
Put on headphones
Turn it up
Bawl your eyes out.

It sounds so much better on headphones when you can hear anything else (or maybe its because my computer speakers are crappy)
Anyway I love this song. It's so.. >.< I dunno, full of emotion.
Quistis88
I never listen to this song without headphones, because it just sounds so much more beautiful with them. *cries*
Ailuro
Oh yes. I agree wholeheartedly. :,3
Senefen
Try getting Fields of innocence by Evanescence too. You might have to WinMX or Kazaa though, I havent found it direct, it fits in with FMA really well (I saw and AMV with it). That'll make you sad too ;_;, Amy Lee has such a beautiful voice.

"Fields Of Innocence"

I still remember the world
From the eyes of a child
Slowly those feelings
Were clouded by what I know now

*chorus*
Where has my heart gone
An uneven trade for the real world
oh I...
I want to go back to
Believing in everything and knowing nothing at all

I still remember the sun
Always warm on my back
Somehow it seems colder now

*chorus2*
Where has my heart gone
Trapped in the eyes of a stranger
oh why...
I want to go back to
Believing in everything

*chorus1 and 2*

Ne, can anyone post the actual lyrics of Brothers?? ^^"
Raziel
"Братья"

Прости меня, младший брат!
Я так пред тобой виноват.
Пытаться вернуть нельзя
Того, что взяла земля.

Кто знает закон Бытия,
Помог бы и мне найти ответ.
Жестоко ошибся я:
От смерти лекарства нет.

Милая мама! Нежная!
Мы так любили тебя.
Но все наши силы
Потрачены были зря.

Тебя соблазнил я
Прекрасной надеждой
Вернуть наш семейный очаг.
Мой брат, я во всем виноват.

Не плачь, не печалься, старший брат!
Не ты один виноват.
Дорога у нас одна,
Искупим вину до дна.

Мне не в чем тебя упрекнуть,
И я не обижен ничуть.
Тяжек, наш грех
Хотеть быть сильнее всех.

Милая мама! Нежная!
Мы так любили тебя.
Но все наши силы
Потрачены были зря.

Я сам соблазнился
Прекрасной надеждой
Вернуть наш семейный очаг.
Я сам во всем виноват.

Но что же нам делать, как быть?
Как все исправить, забыть?
Пытаться вернуть нельзя,
Того, что взяла земля.

"Brat'ya"

Prosti menya, mladshiy brat!
Ya tak pred toboy vinovat.
Pyitatsya vernut' nyelzya
Togo, chto vzyala zyemlya.

Kto znayet zakon Byitiya,
Pomog byi mne nayti otvet.
Zhestoko oshibsya ya;
Ot smerti lekarstva nyet.

Milaya mama! Nyezhnaya!
Myi tak lyubili tebya.
No vse nashi silyi
Potrachenyi byili zrya.

Tebya soblaznil ya
Prekrasnoy nadezhdoy
Vernut' nash semeynyiy ochag.
Moy brat, ya vo vsem vinovat.


Nye plach', nye pechal'sya, starshiy brat!
Nye tyi odin vinovat.
Doroga u nas odna,
Iskupim vinu do dna.

Mnye nye v chem tebya upreknut'.
I ya nye obihen nichut'.
Tyazhek, nash gryekh
Khotet' byit' silneye vsekh.

Milaya mama! Nyezhnaya!
Myi tak lyubili tebya.
No vse nashi silyi
Potrachenyi byili zrya.

Ya sam soblaznilsya
Prekprasnoy nadezhdoy
Vernut' nash semeinyiy ochag.
Ya sam vo vsem vinovat.

No chto zhe nam delat', kak byit'?
Kak vse ispravit', zyabyit'?
Pyitat'sya vernut' nyel'zhya,
Togo, chto vzyala zyemlya.

Forgive me, younger brother
I am to be blamed
It is impossible to return
that, which has been taken by earth

One that knows the law
would help me find the answer.
I made a terrible mistake,
there is no cure for death.

Dear Mother! So Soft! (soft as in loving)
We loved you so much.
But all our powers
were spent in vain.

I intrigued you
With the perfect hope
To return our family
My brother, the blame is all mine.

Don't cry, don't despair, older brother
You are not the only one to blame
We both have one road
Lets bury the blame to the depth (meaning lets forget whos fault it was)

I can't blame you for anything,
And I hold no hard feelings. (as in Im not mad at you)
Heavy is our cause
The desire to be stronger than all

Dear Mother! So Soft!
We loved you so much.
But all our powers
were spent in vain.

I was intrigued myself
with the wonderful hope
to return our family.
I am the one to blame.

So what do we do now?
How do we correct and forget?
When you can't return
That, which was been taken by earth.

Amazing, Raziel! Thank you so much!
