Rinne - "Rondo" Lyrics (Vampire Knight Guilty Op)

Great news! Raserei-hojo from Shoku-Dan informed me that Shoku-Dan translated the Vampire Knight Trailer and made a Karaoke vid out of it! So now you can see the translation not only of the text in the trailer, but also of the song itself. :D

YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SZdFnit9us
Veoh: http://www.veoh.com/videos/v15790359ry7CzaSN

I transcribed the lyrics so I could post them, because it's a very pretty song. Thank you so much to the wonderful translators at Shoku-Dan for putting this out! Please note that this translation is not mine, does not belong to me, and is merely taken from the wonderful video that Shoku-Dan translated. I very possibly screwed up the Japanese version of the lyrics because I have no idea what I'm typing. So any and all errors in either version are likely all mine, not the original translators.

EDIT: Big thank you to shinigamiami for catching and correcting the transcription errors I made! This is the edited/more correct version now. :)

Rinne – "Rondo"
By On/Off
Translation by Shoku-Dan

English:
One by one, the white rose petals open
That day's recollection is fully cast
Like a road crossed by light, time flows into silence
People who become lost on their short paths are born again.

Your smile dissolved the cloudiness in my heart.
How many pieces are woven like that dream?
Even if the setting sun is enough for you,
Our two fading shadows overlap.

Distance without and limitless depth,
It is truly like destiny in our hands
Grasping again and again; Losing again and again
And so by chance we meet.

The sky longs for blood while the flowers wait for rain.
The night makes tomorrow into tonight,
And that two hearts were one
Was this what you wished so hard for?

One by one, the white rose petals scatter over time.
Our love exists for all eternity.

It's a really nice song, I like it even better now that I know the lyrics. I also find it fun to see which clips they stuck at which moments in the song. I can't help but digress a little and grin at the fact that when Kaname and Zero are up against the tub in the vid, it's the Grasping again and again; Losing again and again... verse, which because of the setting and the line makes me inevitably think of Blood Moon. LOL yes, sorry, one track mind.

Like with this pic / verse from the trailer...



Considering Kaname's holding Zero's throat and Zero's kinda grabbing Kaname back... yeah... ;)

Also love this one:



I know Kaname is actually laying on Yuki's chest there, I believe that's probably the scene right after he almost bites her at the vampire party, but... *grins* being the hopeless fanatic that I am, I can't help but notice that really all you see is the coat and the Day Class uniform... which I can appropriate to a different Day Class student in my mind if I want to. ;)

Okay, sorry, will totally stop my deranged rambling now. :)

Labels: , , , , , , , ,

I really, REALLY wish Hino-san would change their mind and turn VK into a yaoi anime. 8D I swear, the innuendo is just too strong for me sometimes! (either that or I'm a REAL fanatic)

I almost feel bad for thinking like this. o_O I mean, Yuuki isn't exactly a Mary Sue and she's nice... BUT I'm too devoted to the angsty, hot and always troubled relationship Kaname and Zero can have. *__* It pains me to see how little fanfiction is being written regarding this! You truly are a life-savior in this fandom. (I'm tired of finding one-shots where Kaname visits Zero at his rooms for some reason (or vice-versa) and then they kiss out of the blue and bam! They're madly in love with each other. My head hurts when I read those fics, I swear).

Lovely pictures from the past post as well! :D And I forgot to say this earlier, but is it just me or Ichiru is looking REALLY different from what he did in the manga when he joined the Day Class? O_o I could swear he didn't try to look like Shizuka's minion, but I have very lousy memory. @_@ I can be wrong.

*would change HER mind.
**VK into a yaoi MANGA (and, therefore, anime)

hahaha I have sooo got to agree with your opinions of those pics XD I paused it for like 10 minutes first time I watched it hehe.

And yeah the song is great -jumps up and down- i can't wait til October now that the trailer is out. *so impatient*

I saw it on Youtube too, and wondered why they changed the title of the song. ^^;
"Rinne" is just the japanese reading for that word, the "wheel of fate/samsara" (basically, the circle of reincarnations in Bouddhism), but it was supposed to be read "Rondo" in the title, as the thingie indicates. (It's the same system than with the episode titles in the anime, there would be a word in japanese, but with a reading not in japanese. (Which is why I listed it as just "Rondo" without the rinne part when I posted about it, as I believe I mentioned back when the PV came out.))


About the screencaps, *LOL* I had the same idea when I saw Kaname laying his head on Yuuki! I both moe'ed Kaname x Yuuki and Zero with Kaname, because of the day class uniform. XDDDD ♥

mari-chan: LOL I know, I totally wouldn't mind that either. *grins and high-fives fellow fanatic*

*giggles* thanks so much! Glad to be of service writing hot Zero and Kaname angst! LOL

Yeah, Ichijo does look really different in the anime previews from how he did in the manga, which is a bit of a pity IMO, but oh well. No, you're not imagining it though, you're right. :)


hebe_horses: mwahaha I know, when watching it's like: Play and Pause. And play... and pause. And pause again... and rewind and pause again... and again... LOL


Sagakure: LOL well I'm clueless when it comes to all words Japanese, so I just put up as many as are given and figure one of them will have to be right! *chuckles at herself* Pathetic... so pathetic... ;) So cool on what it means though! :D

hah! That's so fun that you thought the same thing about that screencap / moment. XD So handy that they both wear the same uniform... ;)

Wow, thanks for the link :D I always wanted to know what the lyrics were after I heard the beautiful song ^.^
"Rondo" and "Two Beats and Red Sins" are two very, very different songs, but I like the both SO MUCH...I wish TV Tokyo will air a THIRD season (I mean, 26 episodes is too short T.T), so the opening song can be something like "Eternal Moment" (really pretty song, have you hear it yet?) xDD

Anyways, arigatou for the pics and extra stuff. That'll keep my mind off of October for now. As always, you're the best!<3333

ahh.. i took the liberty of spell checking your lyrics using Shoku-dan's video and i found a few mistakes. (hope you don't mind!) >.<

in this line "Hikau toota doori you ni toki wa Shizuka ni nagarete" "shizuka" doesn't need to be capitalized because it isn't Shizuka's name.. in this it means "quiet" or, how they translated it it "silence" & its "Hikaru" not "Hikau"

in this "Like a road crossed by fight, time flows into silence" it's "light" not "fight"

in this "Anata no hohoemi wa mane wo tokasuru kumori" its "mune" not "mane"

"Ranko kagetea ano yume no yo" its "kagareta"

"Hateshinaku to wo ka kagiri wa fukaku" its "ku"

"Maji w ate unmei no you ni" its "wa te"

"Yara to meguri ai tattoo" its "tatoto"

"Futatsu no kokoro ga hitotsu data koto" its "datta"

"Shiroi bara no hanabira hitotsuzutsa chira toki" its "chiru"

so altogether the two are
"One by one, the white rose petals open
That day's recollection is fully cast
Like a road crossed by light, time flows into silence
People who become lost on their short paths are born again.

Your smile dissolved the cloudiness in my heart.
How many pieces are woven like that dream?
Even if the setting sun is enough for you,
Our two fading shadows overlap.

Distance without and limitless depth,
It is truly like destiny in our hands
Grasping again and again; Losing again and again
And so by chance we meet.

The sky longs for blood while the flowers wait for rain.
The night makes tomorrow into tonight,
And that two hearts were one
Was this what you wished so hard for?

One by one, the white rose petals scatter over time.
Our love exists for all eternity.

but the font was sorta weird so i can't blame you for messing up the "a"s with the "u"s :)

lol, this post is about your comments "I can't help but digress a little and grin at the fact that when Kaname and Zero are up against the tub in the vid, it's the Grasping again and again; Losing again and again..." wow.. "grasping" brings a... naughty... image to mind =P

ahh your comment on the "It is truly like destiny in our hands" is funny too... XD

hee! the last comment about Kaname laying on "someone" is interesting too..i thought it looked like Zero's coat that one time he tried to run away in episode 4 but its different and it isn't Ichiru's coat either...

Beautiful lyrics! :D Thank you all for the translation, posting, fangirling and corrections. I for one appreciate all very much!

Needless to say, I would like that to be Zero's manly chest as well, that Kaname is lying on... :D

Ooooo! It's so awesome to see the lyrics and know what's being said at each part. *grins* They totally set that up for all us wild fans, I swear. ^.-

Vani, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that one track mind of yours. Deranged rambling? Pah! Never! Heheh. I have to admit, I agree on the part with Kaname lying on Yuuki's chest like that; it could most certainly be Zero.

Still, that's so cool. I can't wait until October rolls around. *jumps up and down*

I also have to agree with Mari-chan. If only there were even more brilliantly written yaoi fanfiction 'tween Kaname and Zero around these days. But thankfully we have the wonderful few authors here who give us the hot, goodness we have. ^.^ I'd try my hand at writing something but God knows I wouldn't be half as good. LOL.

Still, thanks for posting this up, Vani!!

@ Mari & Rikali:

;) Got any links to your own fics that are good examples of Kaname x Zero? I always feel the best way to get better fiction is to add to the fandom yourself! :3

tsuki-moon: You're welcome! Yes, they are two very different songs, but both so lovely. I could definitely go for a third season too! Surely they could get Ms. Hino to come up with more plot for them... maybe if we begged... LOL Thanks!!


shinigamiami: Thanks so much for checking that over and posting the corrections! LOL I didn't even notice that MS Word had auto-capitalized Shizuka when I typed it in *snickers* probably because I have it, and all the other VK names added to my custom dictionary. ;) Thanks so much for catching my other typos too! I shall go back and fix them. LOL can't believe I mis-typed "light"... the Japanese ones I knew I'd probably garbled though, I appreciate the corrections!

*chuckles* it certainly does bring a naughty image to mind... hehe or maybe i just have a naughty mind... ;)


Yengirl: LOL yes, we'll just have our happy little world where that *is* Zero's chest... ;)


Rikali: I know, I think they did! It's awesome! LOL well thanks, I'm glad you don't mind my one-track mind. ;) I can't wait until October either! Thanks so much!!!


Anon: Oh, yes, anyone who has K x Z fanfics to recommend or that they've written, or whatever, always please feel free to share links! Or send them to me for the massive fanfic Recs page I intend to create one of these days... hopefully before the moon turns purple... ;)

:3 Good fanfics are made of win, I'm quite surprised at how many OC fics there are on FFnet these days! I used to go on FFnet in the early 00's and it wasn't so bad for OC / OOC stuff (there was a bit, but people were still more interested in writing about characters from their fandoms)...
Or maybe it was just the fandoms I frequented that were relatively OC free?
Either way I'm really surprised at how hard it is to find people writing either good OC stories (where an OC is believable) or just pure character stuff. So suggestions are even more important in these OC-filled times. I'm not really too big on OC stories, I sort of feel those stories are almost like private fantasies I guess? Maybe I'm being a bit too harsh about it all, I just like reading about actual fandom characters doing interesting things outside of the official works. :3

I have to agree, OC's in fanfics have to be carefully handled in order for me to enjoy them. I've nothing against them when they further the plot and their 'screen time' remains fairly minimal. But when they start becoming main characters in a story I usually do tend to lose interest. Unless they're bad guys anyway. For some reason I don't tend to mind that so much... as long as the focus is still on the pain/angst/whatever that they're causing my favorite main character LOL!

I've nothing against OC stories or people who like to write them, not at all. As long as they're having fun writing what they want to write then hey, that's what fanfic is all about, having fun! :D The neat thing with the web is that no matter what you like to read or write, there's usually someone out there somewhere who enjoys the same thing. It's just that for me personally, I prefer to read stories that focus on my favorite characters, or as you put it, are character based. :)

Hey how do u get that bg?

I'm not sure I know what you mean... but if you mean the background for this page, I made it in photoshop out of several other images (the rose and the chain came from different places). How they are put in the page has to do with the way I have the template for my blog laid out. :)

I know that Shoku-Dan did the lyrics/translation and you are just posting it, but I just thought I'd share a few corrections with Vampire Knight fans reading this! :) (I am in Advanced Japanese in university)

shiroi bara no hanabira "hitotsazutsa" hirakeba?

I'm assuming it should be 'hitotsuzutsu'. However, I don't think those are the lyrics sung. It actually sounds like he is saying

hitotsu futatsu hirakeba

I verified this on a Japanese site, which changes the translation a little bit. Hitotsu futatsu is counting 'one, two'. So it's fairly similar, but it'd be more like "One, two, the white rose petals open"

Also...

ano hi no kioku irodzu miteiku

This is actually

ano hi no kioku irodzuiteiku

It means something more like "That day's memories change colour", makes sense.

I also don't know if I would translate 'hirakeba' as just 'open', ~ba form usually is more of a... conditional thing. So I would say that put together, you have something more like...

"One, two, if the white rose petals open, that day's memories will change colour"

I'm sure there might be better way to construct that sentence, but I think this is much more accurate!

Also, at the end,

futari no ai wa eien ni aru

I listened to the song, and he DEFINITELY says

futari no ai wa eien ni naru

So rather than "our love exists for all eternity", it would be "our love becomes eternal" :)

The last lines,

shiroi bara no hanabira
hitotsu futatsu chiru toki
futari no ai wa eien ni naru

'chiru toki' has not been translated properly. 'toki' is time, but... in this construction, it changes the grammar and is like 'at the time of [Verb]'. It is not 'scatter over time', but rather 'at the time [the white rose petals] scatter'.

So you could put that together to say something like:

"One, two, when the white rose petals scatter, our love will become eternal"

(Note that I changed the word order for the 'one, two' throughout and inserted it at the beginning, as sometimes you have to do when translating... because "When the white rose petals scatter one, two, our love will become eternal" just sounds weird.)

Hopefully someone found this little rant useful or interesting! Maybe I'll translate the whole song later for fun.

Cool!! Thank you so much for sharing! :D

hehehe...one last thing... in this sentense : Yora ga ashita wo kon you ni

its not yora, its yoru! ^.^ thx for posting the lyrics!! awesome song!! cant wait to see the subbed version of vampire knight guilty...hope we will have some zeroxkaname slash! mwhahaha

here are the good lyrics :

Shiroi bara no hanabira
hitotsu futatsu hirakeba
Ano hi no kioku irodzu miteiku
Hikaru toota doori you ni toki wa shizuka ni nagarete
Michi hikui de ni sou nagara hito wa umare kawaru

Anata no hohoemi wa mune wo tokasuru kumori
Ranko kagareta ano yume no yo
Shizuma yuuhi mi ima no kimi tararete mo
Futari no kage wa kasanatte iku

Hateshinaku to wo ku kagiri wa fukaku
Maji wa te unmei no you ni
Nando mo tsukande nandomo ushinatte
Yara to meguri ai tatoto

Sora ga chi wo motome hana ga ame wo machi
Yoru ga ashita wo kon you ni
Futatsu no kokoro ga hitotsu datta koto
Kon nani momo to me te ta no

Shiroi bara no hanabira hitotsu futatsu chiru toki
Futari no ai wa eien ni naru.

Hi people! I'm not japanese and not good at japanese at all...but i,m sure when they say :
Shizuma yuuhi mi ima no kimi tararete mo

between shizuma and ima, theres a word with a "k" like if they said something like :
Shizuma yuu kimi ima no kimi tararete mo.

anyways, something that sounds that way...but cant tell you exactly, sinc im not good at japanese...but there's definitly a "k"...!

ZERO AND AIDO R MYN GRRRRRR SO HANDS OFF FAN GRILS

I have been waiting for VK season 3 for 2 years! And it's not out yet! I keep hearing rumours aboutit, and I just wanted to ask anyone here if there'll be a season 3? VK songs are AWESOME. Can't stop loving them even after 3 years!! Btw, when I first saw the MV in youtube, I replayed it for more than 10 times cos they were just SO sweet!! There's also another scene when Yuuki walks away from Kaname, and I LOVE THE WAY KANAME LOOKED AT HER! It was UNFORGETTABLE! Thanks for the lyrics!!! They're wonderful!!!! VAMPIRE KNIGHT RWACKS!

Alicia: It does rock! :D Yeah, I would love for there to be another season made as well. *sigh* Unfortunately at this point as far as I know there are no official plans for any further seasons. Although VIZ is subbing them and bringing them to the US so that shows they're still popular.

I don't know if they'll ever make more of the anime, but who knows? We can always keep hoping. :)

I just love vampire knight the way it isXD and i love season 2 episodes 7&8 Omg Yuki cross = Yuki Kuran = Pureblood princess of the Kuran family= true daughtr of juri and haruka = Kaname's sister
