Knock knock morning

(1) patsun is a hairstyle with the bangs cut completely straight
(2) in the video it’s a normal clock, but the text says watch
(3) don’t know what that’s supposed to mean, but I doubt it actually refers to music

Big thanks to Johnny for the translation which helps us decipher the mysteries of Japan. :D

  1. The most interesting part is where they say they hate pretending but are a weird metal band of school girls who are singing about applying superficial make-up in the morning themselves.
    They might be totally into make-up, but the presentation in the song is just a bit contradicting. But well, it still imprinted itself in my brain… -.-

  2. I like how it’s total crap really, but it becomes catchy because they obviously have a good production team behind them.

  3. You need to tag this better and place ‘English translation’

  4. *this isn’t anime lyrics*

  5. “(3) don’t know what that’s supposed to mean, but I doubt it actually refers to music” => I think it means “coat”. Question then would be “Which coat to wear today ?”.

    Anyway, I like this mix between metal and j-pop. This is the next step of metal mixed with other music style, after the “fusion-metal” (Dan Reed Network, Living Colour, …), “rap-metal” (Body count, Rage against the machine, …) and “nu-metal” (Korn, Limp Bizkit, …).

Work in progress... not home!
Trying to get all/most of the new code working before I start on the eyecandy.
