チリヌルヲワカ / Chirinuruwowaka: 陰日向 / Double-Faced

Check out KOH3956's  awesome cover of this song!  _____ Title: 陰日向 / Kagehinata / Double-Faced Band: チリヌルヲワカ / Chirinuruwowaka Album: アヲアヲ / Awoawo Lyrics: ユウ / yuu Composition: ユウ / yuu Japanese lyrics: _____ This song has some really interesting writing. There's a clever use of synonyms that sound similar, but have slightly different meanings all over this song. (隙間/狭間, 衝動/行動/鼓動) The song also uses the expressions 雲行き (Movement of the clouds) and 風向き (Direction of the wind) at different points in the song.

The keyboardist, Taeko, also has a Youtube Channel , with a few other Re:leaf videos. Other than that, it seems certain that this is the final song the band did, written to commemorate their time together. I also really liked the song, so I wanted to gather all I could find about the band here, including a translation of this song. My good friend helped me transcribe the lyrics of the song ♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪

Song Translation Index: 回路-kairo- / 556t

This list includes all songs by 回路-kairo- or 556t that I've been able to find. Some albums on this list have missing tracks. That's either because the song isn't by 回路-kairo- or 556t, or it appears on a different album on this list. Compiling this list, I felt I got a good look at part of the Touhou community, and especially those with an interest in 回路-kairo-. So I thought I'd just give a shoutout to all the Youtube channels and all the other translators I've linked to: Youtube: hamucomcity , ~MariMari~ , Kyara Frost , Crystal Memories , Marisa Nya , BurstDigiSoul , The Little Pagoda , Undefined Fantastic Channel , Music of Gensokyo / 幻想郷の音楽 , RevnaVarea , 0P2C , ParasiteTeromea , hyperone3232 , TheHakurouTengu , PatchyFTW , Shaya Kagi , Eiki Shiki , FantasyGensokyo , Anjuu Miko , iapprovelolis , 茶碗蒸 , 765sakuya , Ammy / エイミー , Monochro Monoe , Gensokyo1106 , GreenwichInTheSky , Patchouli Knowledge , MarlyFlowerXI , HikariNoNanaki , Reimu Hakurei , DoujinMusi
