Hello and welcome to Robot and Lyrics, a website for translations of song lyrics by Metronome, FLOPPY and other Japanese angura-kei and techno pop bands.
My name is Kimhren or Aka, and all translations marked as “Translated by Aka” (i.e. all translations in blue) are done by me. Please send me a message and ask if you wish to take/use any of them. You can also find me on Last.fm or Twitter.
All translations in other colors are by other people, after I’ve checked over them. i.e. I don’t just copy and paste.
A huge thank you to Ayyu, Lyme and cherrytetsu for letting me post their translations here. I really appreciated their efforts back when I had practically no knowledge of Japanese. Thanks!
Please note: No translation is perfect. There will always be little errors or meanings that don’t quite match because, after all, Japanese is a totally different language and culture. Also, some people are better at translating than others. My own translations leave a lot to be desired, but the reason I do it is as a fun way to slowly improve my Japanese. If you have any comments or corrections please do comment in the relevant post/page.
Aka, August 2011
UPDATE August 2016:
UPDATE February 2013:
Big changes! I gave RAL a new theme in order for it to be wider. Each translation page will now have a table format which makes it easier to follow. You can now find my translations on JpopAsia, although I didn’t put them there and I’m still waiting for a thank you/apology…
