Ca: “Fr… from now on, I’m gonna be brave…” Ca: “And go all out showing you my hard work as a gunpowder specialist, this I swear!”
Gunpowder Apprentice -> Cucuroux: “Ooh! Well said, Ms. Cammy!”
Cu: “Well then, me too! From now on, I’m gonna go all out…” Cu: “Showing you how much work I can get as a gunsmith, this I swear!”
Silva: “Well then, I too…” Si: “Will go all out showing you my battle prowess as a sniper, this I swear!”
Sniper -> Cu: “…hm?! Big Sis Silva?!” Cu: “Isn’t a sniper someone who fights while hidden though…?”
[After this… at least for a little while…] Si: “CHARGE ATTACK: FUNERAL KICK!!!”

Cu: “Big Sis Silva, you’re sticking out too much!!” [Silva moved to the front lines as an Assault Sniper so she could better show off.]

Champ de Fleurs Jaunes
He had noticed her from afar. She strolled from painting to painting, each illustration regarded attentively with a warm gaze within the gallery until she ceased her pace and admired one in particular. It portrayed a meadow—vivid hues of yellow blossoms, streaks of grey as the contrasting overcast; yet, sun rays illuminated through fractures of the clouds, creating a natural spotlight.
“Solitude,” A voice had said behind her, velvety deep before it paused as the gentleman stood next to her, sipping on a glass of champagne. Proudly did he stand, an unused hand tucked into a pocket whilst he began to commend the piece of art. “Simplistic, brilliant. I think the artist is trying to display hope and enlightenment, wouldn’t you agree?” He turned towards the woman, who studied his presence as though he was, indeed, artwork and shrugged.
The flute of champagne twirled in her grasp, “What makes you believe that?” is inquired past tinted lips and from the corner of her eyes, she made note of the playful smirk in response. He clicked his tongue and took a few steps towards the painting prior to announcing: “I should know. I painted it.”

“Nisemono” 「二世者」. Wow, I just love the clever use of the kanji! The title can be translated as “the second generation” with the way it’s written like that, but I believe it’s also in reference to “nisemono” written like this 「偽者」 which means fake/imposter/pretender. It sure does give more meaning, doesn’t it? Hmm…I wonder who will be this “imposter”?

“Hello, I used to work at the broadcast station for a short time. Kind of like part-time job? I’m not good at talking so this will just be my rambling post. I barely have interest in idols so I don’t know the members’ names… Please excuse me… ㅎㅅㅎ
Anyway, BTS’ personalities? There was a controversy about that. The other fandoms roasted them for it… That thing is ridiculous so I’m writing this to tell you about the BTS I met. I helped with some chores at the broadcast station for a short time, and BTS was there. But you can’t say anything about their personalities. They’re too kind. Other celebrities mentioned this too, but they really are too kind. And except for one person, the rest are all shy…? They only stayed in the waiting room. They weren’t too quiet but weren’t too noisy either. I think they just huddle together and play among themselves. The waiting rooms’ soundproofing system isn’t that good so I could hear almost everything. I was passing by the hallway and I heard a little bit of this, but it’s too cute so I’m writing it here ㅋㅋㅋ There was a sudden loud laughing sound coming from BTS’ waiting room so I halted and was like, “Hmh? What was that?”. Seems like they were telling weird jokes to each other and cackling like high school girls, and played some kind of weird game? I think they’re a 4D squad. Kind of like a bunch of high school girls…
Originally, they don’t allow filming with personal cameras while recording, but sometimes there are thoughtless fans who film by themselves. At times like that, the PD will scold the artists. That time BTS was slightly scolded by the PD. It was an unfair situation, but they just quietly stood and kept apologizing to the PD. I feel somewhat sad for them too…
Oh, and among BTS members, the one with blond hair and tanned skin is different from others, he’s outgoing, right? He greeted other idols and fooled around with them when passing by the hallway. He was really cute…
Anyway, what I want to say is, unlike celebrities nowadays, I think they’re the rare ones who are kind and polite.
Thank you for reading this rambling post… ㅎ Please don’t curse at me too harsh for not writing this properly, I’ll be hurt ㅠㅠ
I didn’t have a Melon account before but I made one to write this.”
↳ (comment) I worked at the broadcast station for some time too. It was back in 2014 and I wasn’t interested in BTS at that time so I didn’t know, but I remember that they always greeted everyone first :) So I became their fan and always think back of that time…
Here’s the previews for the upcoming character songs, volume 2 :) My faves: Kuro, Mahiru and Mikuni (I like Mikuni’s quite a lot ^_^ The title translates as “Setting of on a journey from 0″) (Probably saying that he is starting anew since he left his home) Tetsu’s’ song title can be translated as “Completely different power (strength)”
(That is according to how it is pronounced there, but I read that the same word
真逆 (read as masaka or magyaku as in the song, can also be an archaism of “truly” (hontouni) which kind of fits given that it relates to Tetsu’s Japanese roots and also in a way to the old usage of words that Hugh uses. So we can also call it “True Power”? That’s just my observation until I get to hear the rest of the lyrics) All of them sound great! Let’s look forward to the whole songs ♥
