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.

A song about Seaport Hime.   She is sad and would rather you not come.  This is a transcription, so the lyrics are not reliable.  However, the chorus is accurate since it is taken from the Crossfade Demo.

“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
