The Coordinates of our Dream ☆ NEW AMV!☆

Yes, I just had to do another Misaki Kirihara AMV, I couldn't help myself. I just love her too much. Though, I did actually have a couple of other reasons why I wanted to make this AMV of her.

  1. My previous Darker than BLACK AMV of Misaki and Hei was a bit... well, saying it didn't have a happy ending is a good way to put it. I mean the combination is great and really works, but I like these two together and then having it end with Misaki being like "who needs you" left me wanting to make one with a more positive finish, a hopeful one to be exact (Btw, I still don't understand how the Tokyo Nights AMV is viewable on YouTube again now, I swear it was blocked the last time I looked).
  2. I was really dying to make one with a Nana song. Why? Because Misaki is voiced by Nana and I thought it would add something magical to the mix if it really was like Misaki was singing it herself. Kind of makes it more like it really is her feelings, that sort of thing.
  3. After coming up with those two points I mentioned, I happened to be listening to PHANTOM MINDS and it instantly hit me how perfect the song was for my purpose. The mood of the song is hopeful and purposeful, and that sort of thing fits Misaki very well. Not to mention that the theme of stars really fits Darker than Black as a series and even Misaki's feelings for Hei. Success all around! 

... So as a result, it had to be done. The process did take quite long though. >.< I had most of it ready in the first days of this year, but then my enthusiasm suddenly disappeared completely and it got even to the point that I thought that the whole thing was pretty crap and I should just forget it. Luckily last week I was hit by inspiration again unexpectedly, probably boosted by the invitation to the competition and also by my cousin mentioning how her son really was very proud of me being in an AMV-maker and was all showing the ones I had made to his friends before. Awwh. So without further ado, here is the finished product, enjoy~~! Btw, be sure to switch HD on, otherwise the video quality looks crap.

Point of note: I changed my AMV naming convention. I figured it was better if I didn't mention things very directly in the title of my video, like if maybe doing that would give it a longer lifespan on YouTube and help avoid the intruding eye of copyright control.... buuuut, it didn't help. My video was muted the moment I uploaded it. orz Hence I have turned to my new friend Dailymotion.

Also, I admit I made the subtitles and translation of PHANTOM MINDS in a bit of a rush in order to meet the competition deadline, so I am sorry if something is off. I did my best with the time I had. Here's the translation by itself too~



PHANTOM MINDS (translation)
作詞:水樹奈々
作曲:吉木絵里子
編曲:陶山 隼



いつも探してたんだ 本当の笑顔溢れる場所
微かなその温もりに未来を映して動けずいた
見えない明日に希望を重ねて
不安な夜を繰り返すより
今ここにある小さな幸せを守りたい 

I’ve always been searching for the place where I can show my true smile,
but that faint warmth reflected my future and I couldn’t move.
Into this unknown tomorrow I put all my hope
and instead of repeating these nights full of anxiety,
I want to protect this small happiness I have now.



蒼く澄んだ瞳に浮かぶ 名前もない星空に
僕だけが知ってる夢の座標-星座- をそっと記す
例え深い闇の中 消えてしまったとしても
君へと続くこの記憶は 決して失くすことないよ 


Reflected in his blue eyes is the nameless starry sky in which
I gently write a constellation, one that only I know of.
Even if they were to disappear into the darkness,
I won’t ever lose these memories of you.
 


「教えて…?」 君が初めて触れた僕の心の扉
一人で過ごす時間に いつの間にか慣れてしまっていた
胸を刺す痛み 届かない想い
気付かない様に 嘘をついた
寂しさに理由なんてあるはずないと思ってた 


"Tell me...?" you asked the first time you touched the door of my heart.
Before I knew it, I got used to being alone...
This pain piercing my heart and these feelings that won't reach,
I lied about them, so you wouldn't notice.
I was thinking there was no reason for me to feel this loneliness. 


あの日出会った奇跡は
誰にも想像出来ない物語のプロローグに繋がっていく
ありふれた言葉でもいい 真っ直ぐに伝えたいよ
君の元へと羽撃いていく
「行こう…」もう迷わない 


The miracle of our encounter that day
is connecting us to the unimaginable prologue of our story.
Even if they’re trivial words, I want to honestly convey them to you.
I fly towards you,
“Let’s go…” I won’t hesitate anymore.



どこかで終わり望んでいた…?
行く先さえわからなくて
君の声が聞こえる
「始まり」を告げるよ


Did I wish to end it?
I couldn’t even understand where I was headed,
but I heard your voice
saying “It’s just begun.”



蒼く澄んだ瞳に浮かぶ 名前もない星空に
二人だけの秘密の夢の座標-星座-を描くよ


Reflected in his blue eyes is the nameless starry sky in which 
I draw a constellation, one that is our secret alone.


あの日出会った奇跡は
誰にも想像出来ない物語のプロローグに繋がっていく
ありふれた言葉でもいい 真っ直ぐに伝えたいよ
君の元へと羽撃いていく
ずっと傍にいるから…


The miracle of our encounter that day
is connecting us to the unimaginable prologue of our story.
Even if they’re trivial words, I want to honestly convey them to you.
I fly towards you,
because I’ll always be by your side…
 



Lastly! Earlier this summer one of my friends told me that I should make an AMV for every Nana song... so.... that's two down, and a million more to go~!
