I hope you guys can stop posting lyrics and translation that is not done by you. There's no meaning at all to simply "copy & paste" lyrics from other websites and post them here. Such behaviour is known as plagiarism and is strongly prohibited.

Yes, you might say you can put the website in the credit section, but how about I just removed all the previous lyrics posted here and simply post up a list of site where you can find Ai's lyrics from? There, you see my point now don't you? If you really want to contribute to this section, make your own Japanese, Romaji and translation, and be proud of it because you'll be recognized for your hard work, not just because you copy and paste it from some websites when you can just include a link to that site without posting the lyrics at all. Have a look at nukaru and usopp's lyrics, those are their personal work and I think you can feel it by heart. I thank them for their effort.

I hope you guys get the idea why I open this lyrics forum. Just like the fanart forum, I'm not asking you steal some images from other websites and post it there, (even if you credit the original site) I'm asking you to make your own and be praised about it. Look at Clover's and Meri-chan's drawings, those are the stuff I'm looking for, your own personal work that truely define yourself.

Thanks for understanding.


P.S. those already posted lyrics, translation that are taken from other websites will be updated with new ones when any of you actually came out with your own translation, since most of them already have people replied to them.

eyn is right
we should personalise this forum
by using our own work as what is inside
you can find everything else outside too
but if we made up this part of our forum by ouselves
there will be so much more meaning

it is not easy for a person to do romanji japanese and translation
it do takes time but when you finished it you would be proud of your effort and all the hard work you put on it. it makes alot of differences between copy and paste. and like kikubelle say it will be so much more meaning Nod

not to say im not agree to 星くず. wat i think is this forum is for us to share not only WHAT WE KNOW, but also WHAT WE HAVE or WHAT WE FOUND for this lovely cute fan. of coz, it's more unique if we able to create our own translation for every lyrics. but don forget fan here is searching for information what they need EASILY, instead of searching for UNIQUENESS.

^well, if you want to find some lyrics easily type "otsuka ai lyrics" in google and see what comes up. Sneeze

I agree with eyn. It really doesn't take much effort to copy & paste and might as well just have links to site that produces the lyrics/translations. Besides, who wouldn't want to show off their hard work? Tongue

I thought I made myself quite clear why I made these rules. I'm not looking for uniqueness here but stimulating creativeness instead of plagiarism. We want creation, and we don't want duplicates. This lyrics forum is not about providing convenience, it's about showing what our members are capable of. For example, take a look at enlightened0ne's personal work on Ai's lyrics translation, aren't those the things that you would like to see instead of copy and paste work from other sites? Take a look at news forum and the many news I posted, do I copy and paste them from another site without adding my own soul into them?

Think about it. Wink For me, copy and paste is truely meaningless. As broken::dreams pointed out, using search engine to find lyrics isn't that hard, especially if you can find your way here to Channel-Ai you should be able to do it.

I agree entirely here with posting only your own translations, for a couple of reasons, not the least of which have already been said.
Japanese, especially in songs like Ai-chan's, is full of nuances that just can't be expressed well without putting a lot of thought into them. It's not about the word-for-word, it's about the meaning and feeling behind a sentence; having done a few Japanese-English translations before (of TV animes and such), I know how much work and thought goes into trying to make more than a sterile, word-for-word translation.
Props on the no copy and paste rule. Nod Grin
