    Ugh omg yes, and there some really bad translation ones on some really famous songs like Iiwake Maybe etc lol

    Kimi wa melody - translation:

    AKB48 - You’re a Melody

    The sun’s rays are transformed by the magic of spring
    And the city and its people alike look refreshing in their new clothes
    Invited by the wind, I hum without realising
    Our favourite song that I’d already forgotten
    It draws me towards those memories in the far past
    Why did this song enter my mind so suddenly?

    My affection has always been patiently waiting its turn
    I can hear the white noise of the radio
    Crossing over and through time…

    You’re a melody, a melody
    A nostalgic harmony, a harmony
    Instead of telling you how I felt
    I held back the pain in my chest
    You’re my melody, melody
    But I can only remember the chorus
    Those heartrending, sparkling days of my youth
    Are coming back to me once again

    The two of us would walk down the main street
    Out into the side roads, lost in our youth
    Without realising, we grew up
    And stopped listening to those songs
    I was always looking for something new
    But now, it's as if the music is asking me
    If there was something I forgot all along

    If there’s something that coincidence teaches us
    It’s that even when life doesn't play out as planned
    A hibernating love can always wake again…

    Those sweet memories, memories
    And those dreamt-about glory days, glory days
    That promise for eternity
    Was swallowed up by our goodbye
    Suddenly those memories, memories
    Are turning shadows vivid once more
    Unconsciously, I’m still softly
    Humming that song

    Have you looked back and remembered too, I wonder
    The hit song from those days
    That was always playing

    You’re a melody, a melody
    A nostalgic harmony, a harmony
    Instead of telling you how I felt
    I held back the pain in my chest
    You’re my melody, melody
    But I can only remember the chorus
    Even now, I’m filled
    With those bittersweet feelings

    This melody, melody
    I’m sure somewhere you’ll
    Be humming it too
    Time has been kind to these memories

    One day you’ll be humming it too
    That melody from long ago

    Well it's mostly in the early years of AKB, particularly the b sides. I'd love to know who's who singing the lines , but there are no colour codes for songs like Dakedo, Namida uri no shoujo, virgin love, etc. http://stage48.net/studio48/dakedo_single.html

    I don't know if tsuki no katachi is correct or not, but some of the members are different compared to the DVD, example it shows lavendar coloured lyric "shoujo wa" sung by Kawasaki Nozomi, yet itano tomomi is singing that line in the DVD, same with micchan (Maimai in DVD) Kojiharus colour is bright green yet pale beige in the lyrics, they don't match http://stage48.net/studio48/tsukinokatachi.html

    seifuku ga jama wo suru isn't on the A4 album

    In the dear my teacher (album version) Acchan's lines sound like they're sung by kojiharu, and it's difficult to read what english lyrics match up with the romaji ones http://stage48.net/studio48/dearmyteacher.html

    In A5 "kenkyuusei" can be replaced with nonako misato's name http://stage48.net/studio48/manatsunochristmasrose.html
    Futsuu no anata, cli cli (shouldn't it be kuri kuri!??),ganbarina, best by, has no colour codes http://stage48.net/studio48/futsuunoanata.html http://stage48.net/studio48/clicli.html

    There are no colour codes for the 2nd and 3rd SDN gen. stage songs, haruka kohara should be listed in the the duet unit "I'm sure" and every other stage song ito kana is since she's been in the group longer and is in the DVD



    That's all I can find for now, and I also have a couple suggestions for stage48 wiki who do I talk to about that?

    Many of the people who contributed colorcodes / lyrics translations for the very old AKB stuff are no longer in the fandom, so they can't be contacted about their works. It's possible they colorcoded those based on the members who were normally performing the stage at the time (I know there were substitutions on the DVDs, so you can't always rely on them for an original lineup).

    Yes, there are some pretty questionable translations for a lot of the songs on Studio48. It's the site's policy not to turn down any submission made in good faith (with a few exceptions).
    You are always more than welcome to make an additional translation to add to the site, however. You can submit them here and @haruna_hamasaki will add them when she gets to it :)

    The members of the studio recording are written on the wiki. It was Kohara Haruka, not Nonaka, by the way.

    In the DVD yes, but if you listen to the album it's nonaka.

    Please do not use this as a conversation thread. If you have contributions for Studio48, or want to point out a specific mistake that you feel needs to be corrected, feel free to point them out. If it is an issue on the wiki then please go to the wiki thread where you can do the same.

    As far as I know, the official lyrics for the single are not out until the single is released. Personally, I don't do translations until the single has been released and the lyrics are verified. I imagine translations for it will be rolling in within the next 7 days as the single's official release date is in a few days. If no one else beats me to it, I'll translate the songs from this single.

    Hopefully I'm not stepping on anyone's toes, but here are some translations (inc. the Kimi wa Melody one I did from before that I've now cross referenced with the official kanji):

    Kimi wa melody
    AKB48 - You're a Melody

    The sun’s rays are transformed by the magic of spring
    And the city and its people alike look refreshing in their new clothes
    Invited by the wind, I hum without realising
    Our favourite song that I’d already forgotten
    It draws me towards those memories in the far past
    Why did this song enter my mind so suddenly?

    My affection has always been patiently waiting its turn
    I can hear the white noise of the radio
    Crossing over and through time…

    You’re a melody, a melody
    A nostalgic harmony, a harmony
    Instead of telling you how I felt
    I held back the pain in my chest
    You’re my melody, melody
    But I can only remember the chorus
    Those heartrending, sparkling days of my youth
    Are coming back to me once again

    The two of us would walk down the main street
    Out into the side roads, lost in our youth
    Without realising, we grew up
    And stopped listening to those songs
    I was always looking for something new
    But now, it's as if the music is asking me
    If there was something I forgot all along

    If there’s something that coincidence teaches us
    It’s that even when life doesn't play out as planned
    A hibernating love can always wake again…

    Those sweet memories, memories
    And those dreamt-about glory days, glory days
    That promise for eternity
    Was swallowed up by our goodbye
    Suddenly those memories, memories
    Are turning shadows vivid once more
    Unconsciously, I’m still softly
    Humming that song

    Have you looked back and remembered too, I wonder
    The hit song from those days
    That was always playing

    You’re a melody, a melody
    A nostalgic harmony, a harmony
    Instead of telling you how I felt
    I held back the pain in my chest
    You’re my melody, melody
    But I can only remember the chorus
    Even now, I’m filled
    With those bittersweet feelings

    This melody, melody
    I’m sure somewhere you’ll
    Be humming it too
    Time has been kind to these memories

    One day you’ll be humming it too
    That melody from long ago

    LALALA Message
    Next-Gen Senbatsu - LALALA Message

    La la la la la la…
    Let’s sing together
    La la la la la la…
    My friend

    The world may be big
    But you can be heard if you raise your voice
    A wind can cross over
    The borders that separate nations
    When we hear of tragedy
    On the news
    Is there anything that we can do?

    Instead of just crying from far away
    Stand up together

    A message in a lalala
    Let’s sing it together
    Uniting our hearts
    A message in a lalala
    Even if our languages may differ
    We’ll still be able to understand one another’s
    Song of love

    La la la la la la…
    With a smile
    La la la la la la...
    Towards the future

    Silence will only
    Deepen the sadness
    Remember that
    You’re not alone
    Living is not just
    Something done for yourself
    But is instead to help others

    Instead of spreading our your arms when they can’t reach
    Let’s start walking forward from now on

    Lalala is the password
    When we sing it together
    It can bring vigour back to a person
    Lalala is the password
    Just singing it is enough
    To bring warmth to our feelings

    The songs collected
    From all around
    Everyone will realise that
    This great big world carries our hope

    A message in a lalala
    Let’s sing it together
    Uniting all hearts together
    A message in a lalala
    Even if our languages may differ
    We’ll still be able to understand one another’s
    Song of love

    You’re becoming lost in the crowd
    Your affection’s gonna go unnoticed

    So if you’re serious about this
    Jump up right now!
    Use the depth of your love for me
    As the strength in your spring
    Extending your hands towards the blue sky

    NMB48 - The Youth I Clung to

    I visited the grounds of my high school once again
    After a number of years
    An underclassman whose name I didn’t know
    Was sweating through the summer
    I heard that he’d been dropped from the lineup
    Of our hallowed school soccer team
    Fidgety with restlessness
    I took a peek at his soccer practice

    I was surprised by who I saw
    Sitting in the stands
    Wearing a dress that made her look mature
    It was the team manager from those days long past

    That was
    The youth that I clung to
    A glory that was covered in scars
    I’ll probably never get fired up
    The way I did then
    Looking back on that radiance
    The days that we sped through
    I’ll keep going with all my might
    Into tomorrow…

    I stood nearby and watched
    The practice to the end
    Watching the uniforms pass by
    Made me feel nostalgic
    I quietly wondered
    If calling something out
    From where I stood
    Would help them win in the next match

    “I understand your frustration
    But if they don’t find it on their own
    They won’t win the national championships”
    Murmured the beauty

    Yes, they will
    Cling to their youth
    They’ll understand after tasting hardship
    And learn how to get back up
    After their tears have flowed
    The rivals they’ll want to overcome,
    The defeat they will experience
    And the ensuing bitterness will become their strength
    Break through with your recklessness
    Towards your dreams…

    One day the underclassmen
    Will watch over a new generation
    And teach them
    The important of seizing the day

    That was
    The youth that I clung to
    A glory that was covered in scars
    I’ll probably never get fired up
    The way I did then
    Looking back on that radiance
    The days that we sped through
    I’ll keep going with all my might
    Into tomorrow…

    Make noise
    HKT48 - Make Noise

    Whoa whoa whoa whoa
    Whoa whoa whoa whoa

    Like a jet-black doberman
    Baring its fangs
    He appeared suddenly
    Intimidating me

    I don’t remember ever being loved
    Living through life alone
    I know only how to distrust
    With the dark glance I send others

    What expression should I wear when I cry?
    I was always waiting for someone
    Having never been taught
    How to depend on another
    Too scared to place my trust in people
    I chained myself up
    Unable to move from where i was
    Tamed like an animal

    Whoa whoa whoa whoa
    Whoa whoa whoa whoa

    My breathing becomes ragged
    When I look up at the pale moon
    The beautiful things in this world
    Are all out of my reach

    Dreams are merely fleeting
    Disappearing just like that
    You’re better off not bothering with them
    From the very start…

    I began growing stronger
    From the moment I gave up
    On everything in this world

    I don’t care how it sounds
    I’ll never have anyone to love
    ”I don’t need anyone”
    Your words cause me to put up a front
    Even if I grit my teeth and bear through

    The tears fall on their own
    One day I’ll escape somewhere
    As long as it’s anywhere but here

    What expression should I wear when I cry?
    I was always waiting for someone
    Having never been taught
    How to depend on another
    Too scared to place my trust in people
    I chained myself up
    Unable to move from where i was
    Tamed like an animal

    Max toki 315-gou
    NGT48 - The Max Toki No. 315 Bullet Train

    Once we exit that last tunnel
    We’ll begin the approach to a beautiful town
    Where I’d always believed that hope resided
    I was born here and I grew up here
    And I want to show you everything about it

    The night we met
    I promised
    That I’d bring to my hometown
    The most important person in my life

    What the future holds
    Is always kinder than what we expect
    The scenery suddenly begins to blur
    My dreams are coming true
    And as my affections for you spills over
    I feel like telling you from the pupils of my eyes
    That I want to walk by your side

    The changing of the seasons
    Is similar to how we grow and mature
    As the flowers around us bloom
    The worries that preoccupy us from time to time
    Are bringing us to adulthood

    Underneath that far away sky
    I was being watched over
    That presence
    Had become my rock

    We wait for what the future holds
    Without knowing what shape it will take
    To avoid spitting out our discontent
    Love means being able to
    Shed tears for others
    I’m mulling over my happiness

    Even the thickest of snows will melt
    New buds will sprout from the ground
    Sadness and pain will change
    Into joy and smiles
    And tomorrow will come no matter what

    What the future holds
    Is always kinder than what we expect
    The scenery suddenly begins to blur
    My dreams are coming true
    And as my affections for you spills over
    I feel like telling you from the pupils of my eyes
    That I want to walk by your side

    NogizakaAKB - A Mixture

    No matter how beautiful separate colours may be
    They become tainted once mixed together
    I obstinately turned my back
    And put up a barrier, saying I didn’t need friends

    “I can live through life alone
    I want to become a stronger person”
    Breathing these words, I looked out through the window
    Before long I stopped hearing anyone else’s voice
    And just as I had found a world meant only for me…

    Why is it
    That you appeared so suddenly?
    Blending in with my heart just by existing
    I can finally accept the colours of another
    That I had refused until now
    You and I are a mixture
    That I have never seen or felt before

    I’d gotten used to strangers
    Secretly whispering and pointing at me
    Those colours weren’t mine
    They all blended into a single mass that I rejected

    What exactly does it mean to be a friend?
    Does it mean mimicking similar colours
    And flocking together in a calculated manner?
    If you can only make friends by smoothing over the bumps
    Than I’d rather live in solitude

    Even so, why is it
    That you started talking to me?
    I had forgotten how to speak to others
    But you made me remember what love is
    Casually creeping into my heart
    Like a wind impervious to resistance
    The two of us are a single mixture

    Why is it
    That you appeared so suddenly?
    Blending in with my heart just by existing
    I can finally accept the colours of another
    That I had refused until now
    You and I are a mixture
    That I have never seen or felt before
