Shingeki no Kyojin OP 1 – “Guren no Yumiya”

LYRICS

Romanji:

Seid ihr das Essen?
Nein, wir sind der Jäger!

Fumareta hana no namae mo shirazu ni
Chi ni ochita tori wa kaze o machiwabiru

Inotta tokoro de nani mo kawaranai
Ima o kaeru no wa tatakau kakugo da

Shikabane fumikoete susumu ishi o warau buta yo
Kachiku no annei kyogi no hanei shiseru garou no jiyuu o!

Torawareta kutsujoku wa hangeki no koushi da jouheki no sono kanata emono o hofuru jäger
Hotobashiru shoudou ni sono mi o yakinagara tasogare ni hi o ugatsu

Guren no yumiya

Kanji:

Seid ihr das Essen?
Nein, wir sind der Jäger!

踏まれた花の 名前も知らずに
地に墜ちた落ちた鳥は 風を待ち詫びる

祈ったところで 何も変わらない
《不本意な現状》を変えるのは 戦う覚悟だ…

屍踏み越えて 進む意思を 嗤う豚よ
家畜の安寧… 虚偽の繁栄… 死せる餓狼の『自由』を!

囚われた屈辱は 反撃の嚆だ 城壁の其の彼方 獲物を屠る《狩人》
迸る《殺意》に 其の身を灼きながら 黄昏に緋を穿つ

紅蓮の弓矢

English:

Seid ihr das Essen?
Nein, wir sind der Jäger!

Without knowing the name of the trampled flowers
The birds that fell to the ground are waiting for the wind

Praying won’t change anything
What will change the depressing situation is how ready you are to fight…

Oh, the pigs sneering at our will to advance as we step over corpses
The livestock may be at peace…in their phony prosperity …But let us be “free” like the dying, starving wolves!

The humiliation of being trapped signals our counterattack; you’re a hunter who slaughters the prey beyond the castle walls
While you’re consumed by a raging bloodlust, what pierces the scarlet at dusk is―

the crimson bow and arrow

My Top 5 Anime Series for Spring Season 2013

The series that were aired during Spring season 2013 are incredibly exceptional so I decided to picked my top 5 for it. What a shame that it already came to its closure but it’s a part of the life of every otaku so no choice but to accept it. Anyway, I’ll start with my top 5 which is:

Top 5Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge

Even though, this series didn’t managed to be included in the list of most popular anime series during Spring 2013, I absolutely enjoyed this one. Despite of the fact that most of the characters of this series shows fetishes. Its concept is unique when it comes to objective & weapons. What I like the most in this series are the intense parts embedded in each episodes. It has a lot of violent & sadist battles but enjoyable as well. The ending is kinda satisfying but a second season is not a bad idea.
Overall Rating: 8/10
Top 4Hataraku Maou-Sama!

One of the most sought anime series during Spring 2013, places after Shingeki no Kyojin. This is one of the best Romance-Comedy anime series I’ve seen. The concept is unique and wonderful. Its protagonist is hilarious and he will never fail to deliver amusement to the viewers. On the other hand, its ending is quite dissatisfying so second season is a must.
Overall Rating: 9/10
Top 3Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru.

This series depicts the life of a loner which I really adore. I’m an isolated person like the protagonist do so that’s why he became one of my favorite anime characters. It shows how society acts in many aspects and how loners cope to a certain circumstances. Even though, it has romance genre embedded in its plot, you can’t totally feel it. The romance was only realized visibly for a meantime during the last episode. Nonetheless, I enjoyed watching it and I also hoping for a second season.
Overall Rating: 9/10
 
Top 2Suisei no Gargantia

Didn’t managed to be included in the list of most popular anime for Spring 2013, but this series amused me in many aspects. Well, I don’t know why I became attached with this anime but I just love it. I hope that it can last up to 20+ episodes but it only has 13 episodes. Anyway, the last episode is not yet available so I can’t spout my final conclusion for this series (this part will be edited once I’ve seen the last episode).
Overall Rating: 9.5/10 
Top 1Shingeki no Kyojin

Definitely the best anime for Spring 2013! but I do think that it’s the best anime for 2013 since all of its aspects are so fascinating. I can’t express in words how I really feel about this anime. I recommend this to everyone who haven’t tried it though violence can be seen everywhere within this series, it depends on the young viewers below 13 years old on how will they absorb it. The anime is on its 13th episode and it will last up to 25 so I’ll not be able to leave a conclusion for it hereby. Anyway, I’m looking forward for the next happenings.
