Houkago Kappa full ver. – Translation

In the classroom with no one left
All alone squatting down
(Kappa)
Today’s incomprehensible events
Troubled all alone
(Kappa)

When I arrived at school
On top of the desk ahh~
Flowers had been placed

When I try to speak to anyone there is no reply
They don’t see me
I’m not caught in anyone’s line of sight
They simply don’t see me

When I try to speak to anyone there is no reply
They don’t see me
I’m not caught in anyone’s line of sight
They simply don’t see me

After school with everyone gone
Asking myself
(Kappa)
After school with only the remaining evening sun
Constructing all alone
(Kappa)

That is Nana-chome’s (district 7′s)
Large railroad crossing
Where I said farewell to this world

I can’t talk to anyone and it can’t be helped
I’m not alive anymore
I’m not caught in anyone’s line of sight
There’s no way they can see me

I can’t talk to anyone and it can’t be helped
I’m not alive anymore
However you who are my closest friend
Don’t forget about me

We are friends right?

Houkago Kappa

With the reveal of Teiko in the role of Sara, her band Shoujoshiki Elise is also featuring with a song called 放課後カッパー (Houkago Kappa / Afterschool Kappa) that’ll be used as an insert in the series. Here’s a lyrics music video of it! 

I’ve translated the song below

“Afterschool Kappa” by Azuku Sara with Shoujoshiki Elise

In the classroom with no one left
Squatting down alone
A kappa
Today’s incomprehensible events
Troubled alone
A kappa

When I arrived at school
On top of the desk ah
There had been placed flowers

When I speak to someone there is no reply
They do not see me
I’m not caught in anyone’s line of sight
They just do not see me

When I speak to someone there is no reply
They do not see me
I’m not caught in anyone’s line of sight
They just do not see me


Note that placing flowers on top of someone’s desk is a form of bullying in Japan. If a student dies there’s a tradition of placing flowers on top of their desk. Doing it to someone living is a very nasty way of saying you’re wishing them dead.

In case the rest of the lyrics didn’t make it clear this song is about bullying.
