It’s here. It’s finally here in the U.S. The movie that beat out Spirited Away at the box office even before North American release. The masterpiece of an Alternative Rock soundtrack and unfathomable mixes of emotions the movie conveys in vibrant colors. Your Name is finally in theaters across the U.S. and Canada.

Music Monday - Zenzenzense (前前前世)

Happy Monday Quotakus! Today’s feature is Zenzenzense ( 前前前世 ) by RADWIMPS, because I am totally in love with their music. 

They’re an indie rock band, started in 2001, and their band name was formed from two English language slang terms; rad and wimp. They are currently most known for their tunes on Kimi no na wa ( 君の名は )!

Notable songs for the animated film besides Zenzenzense are Sparkle, Dream Lantern and one of my personal favourites, Theme of Mitsuha. They also recently released an album titled Human Bloom, full of amazing songs such as O&O, Weekly Shounen Jump and One Spring Day!

They’re on Spotify & Apple Music so do check their albums out - you won’t regret it, heh!


君の名は。 / Kimi no Na wa. / Your Name.
スパークル / Sparkle by RADWIMPS


愛し方さえも 君の匂いがした

Even the way I love has started to have traces of you

歩き方さえも その笑い声がした

Even the way I way, had the sound of your laughter

いつか消えてなくなる 君のすべてを

Everything about you that will someday fade and disappear


I will burn it all into my eyes

もう権利なんかじゃない 義務だと思うんだ

I don’t think it is my right to do so, but I feel that it is my duty

運命だとか未来とかって 言葉がどれだけ手を

We are falling in love in a place that is so far away that…

伸ばそうと届かない 場所で僕ら恋をする

No matter how much they reach, things like ‘fate’ or ‘future’ will not touch us
