Source of Lyrics: http://www.nautiljon.com
Translation: Nonomino

De la mer céladon devant du vent
Je m'oriente tranquillement de nos jours
Dans la terre lapis-lazuli étendue
Je n'oublierais pas sa voix, m'appelant ¨La Corolle¨

La corolle, ma corolle
Notre princesse, petite princesse
Ma corolle petite corolle
La couronne des fleurs, la plus belle

Sur le ciel plat azur derrière du vent (Tôt ou tard)
Je s'imagine, il est dans la foule des gens (Pressés)
J'ai vu son bateau en papier (Sa bravoure)
J'ai touché sa chaussure en soie (Fréquemment)

Lorsque je compte des étoiles
Lorsque je trouve la voile
Lorsque le joyau dormira pacifiquement
Lorsque le Pierre est aux bois
Lorsqu'il récolte une perle
Lorsque la gloire du matin éclot
Au plus tard du printemps

La corolle est toujours mon espoir
Le sol revidi est mon courage
Sur le courant d'air
Je m'ensuivrai
Moi, je m'ensuivrai
Soin au fil de la lumière.

La corolle, Ma corolle
Notre princesse, petite princesse
Ma corolle petite corolle
La couronne des fleurs, la plus belle

Quoi qu'il traversait
Les Sept Merveilles du Monde
Il n'est pas de Passage
Pas de passage dans mon pays
Je suis partie à la chasse aux Arc en Ciel
Avec mon filet, sans rancune

Lorsque je compte des Étoiles
Lorsque je trouve la voile
Lorsque le joyau dormira pacifiquement
Lorsque le Pierre est aux bois
Lorsque il récolte une perle
Lorsque la gloire du matin éclot
Au plus tard du Printemps

Lorsque on offre l'Hortensia
À la Patrie, des fleurs, des fleurs
L'oiseau rouge
Était parti sans que personne
Ne l'ait vu
L'oiseau rouge
Ne reviendra plus

Translation

Of the celadon sea in front of the wind
I peacefully turn away from our days
In the spread lapis-lazuli earth
I will never forget his voice, calling me "The Corolla"

The corolla, my corolla
Our princess, little princess
My corolla little corolla
The flowers' crown, the most beautiful

On the flat azure sky behing the wind (Sooner or later)
I imagine him, he is in the crowd (In a hurry)
I saw his paper boat (His bravery)
I touched his silk shoe (Often)

When I count stars
When I found the sail
When the jewel will peacefully sleep
When Pierre is in the woods
When he harvests a pearl
When the morning's glory blossoms
At the latest of Spring

The corolla is always my hope
The revidi* ground is my bravery
On the airstream
I will follow
Me, I will follow
Care with the flow of light

The corolla, my corolla
Our princess, little princess
My corolla little corolla
The flowers' crown, the most beautiful

Although he went through
The Seven Wonders of the World
He is not passing through
Not passing through my country
I went hunting the rainbows
With my net, with no hard feelings

When I count stars
When I found the sail
When the jewel will peacefully sleep
When Pierre is in the woods
When he harvests a pearl
When the morning's glory blossoms
At the latest of Spring

When we offer the hydrangea
To the homeland, flowers, flowers
The red bird
Was gone without anyone
Saw it
The red bird
Will never comme back

* I have no idea what "revidi" is supposed to mean, it's not a real french word.

The original lyrics are not always in an accurate french, so it was impossible to translate the song without the translation sounding awkward.
(But if anyone finds english mistakes, please tell me!)

EH? What did you get the info from? From what I know, Imoto san is a game composer who worked with Shikata San for a few times. Imoto san's born in 1976, March 14 (different birthdate from Shikata San).

Well. Let's say it's very likely to be the same person... I'm not 100% sure about it, though, but it's very close. To be honest, there are several hints out there that make me believe it's a pseudonym that Shikata uses:

First of all, it's very difficult to find any information and pictures of Tomoko Imoto.

Secondly, she is often credited for the piano recordings. Yet, Shikata can play the piano, and you got to admit she's pretty good at it (besides the fact she did the arrangements, I'm also certain she plays on Kalliope ~piano concert~, unless Imoto is credited, which wouldn't surprise me... if anyone who actually owns a copy of it or scans can confirm...) So if she can play the piano herself, why would she ask someone else to do it? She always provided everything she was able to do for her studio works: composition, vocals, arrangements, production, various instruments (look at the credits on the album booklets: it's specified that any instrument that is not listed is played by her), lyrics more and more often.

And the most blatant of all to me is related to the Shadow Hearts soundtrack. Her works there are simply credited as Tomoko Imoto! I mean it can't get more obvious. Everyone agrees she did these soundtracks, her bio mentions it, and if you listen close it's really her style (listen to "Tirawa" for instance, and dare tell me it wasn't composed by Akiko!) even if the arrangements are more soundtrack-like and quite different from her album songs.

So, what do you say? Obvious isn't it? big smile

It makes sense. I can understand why you are so sure about it.

Next question would be, why would she disguise herself in another name? Don't tell me it's because she's too shy. That's a bit ridiculous for me. ^^"

A lot of artists use pseudonyms, it could be for various reasons. I don't know for sure but maybe she wanted to dissociate her works as a game composer from her solo albums. Who knows?

For the Kalliope piano concert booklet, the credits are written as below (I'll copy word by word~):

Produced & Composed: Shikata Akiko
Piano Arranged: Tomoko Imoto
Directed, Recorded & Mixed: Naoyuki Minani

I've attached a copy of my scan for that page

http://i67.servimg.com/u/f67/15/97/21/03/kallio11.jpg

For the Shadow Hearts Soundtracks, Shikata San is also credited (for the chorus) along with Tomoko san for the songs they've collaborated (e.g. The Earth, The Sea, the Sun etc). It's actually pretty normal for skilled musicians/artists proficient in playing an instrument having others to arrange their songs for them, the reason may vary though. Em~ also both shikata san and Imoto san belongs to different company. As for who Imoto san is, here you go~

Imoto Tomoko

Although it's just the side profile, I personally don't think that they're the same person >_< But that's just my personal view~
