Junko Ohashi – Telephone Number

Title:  大橋純子 – テレフォン・ナンバー
Album: Tea for Tears
Release Date: Jun 2010

I heard this “Awoo 56709” song while browsing through silly memes.  I didn’t expect it to have Japanese lyrics in the beginning, but just the sense of longing in the first verse was enough to spark my curiosity in this old classic.  After finding the lyrics, I felt the song really connected with my mood, so I had to share it.

I’ve played Granblue with the sound off ever since I started (to save data).  Drum Master was released recently and the boards were filled with Soiya jokes. I finally turned the sound on and the sleeping man within me was awakened…

The term 三羽烏 means a triumvirate, lit. Three Crows.  It describes any three people who excel in any field, commonly used in sports. These three characters are the triumvirate of Granblue’s men!

Kinema106 – 蜻蛉羽

Title:  蜻蛉羽 (Dragonfly Wings)
Circle: Kinema106
Vocal: kalon.
Arrangement: Tom
Release Date: Aug 15, 2014
Requested By: VocalC Google

An old way to say dragonfly is 蜻蛉 “Akitsu”.  This is not officially the Akitsu in Akitsumaru, but Tom makes it seem appropriate.  The song is about Akitsumaru’s final raid and sinking as she reminiscences about childhood songs.   En route to the Phillipines on November 1944, Akitsumaru is sunk by USS Queenfish’s torpedoes striking her depth charges.  Over the next 24 hours, 310 of Akitsumaru’s 2,300 men are saved by the other ships in her convoy.   Coincidentally, rescuing survivors is also known as dragonfly fishing in Japanese.

“If there was a Japanese ship I could feel sorry for at all, it would be the Kumano.” – Fleet Admiral William Frederick Halsey Jr.

Kumano and Suzuya took part in Leyte Gulf, the biggest naval battle in history. While Suzuya was sunk there, Kumano managed to survive and began her retreat. She was beset by and survived 8 different attacks on her long and painful journey home before finally sinking on the 9th attack.

Final note: the romaji of the title is “Juubaku”. The main line of this song is “ai ni juubaku”, pronounced like “I need you back”, means “a gunblast for love”.

Kumano’s story in English, basically what the interlude text is about: http://www.combinedfleet.com/atully04.htm
