Random Kanji Knowledge: Kizuna

Random Kanji Knowledge time!

Today’s kanji is 絆, which is read as kizuna (key-zoo-na). 絆 means “bonds” (as in bonds that are emotional, relationship-driven and otherwise.)

絆 is a word you hear the Japanese say a lot. It’s important to talk about the “bonds” you have with others and what it means to you.

Ambiguous

Nhan-Fiction Note: Kill la Kill is a crazy, but very entertaining anime.

Song: Ambiguous

Artist: GARNiDELiA

By Judee Zee.
Once the threads of fate are severed
Our destinies will change forever

I tried to be someone that I’m not
In a world of fear and distraught
I can’t breathe, I had to leave

As I walked down my own runway 
I put on a mask of disdain
To hide this vile and wicked smile

Even if i fake my uncertainty 
You’re the only one who can see right through me
Once we both felt hatred and pride
but now we’re standing side by side 

No one else can take away what’s meant for the both of us
A fever so Ambiguous
is not even enough to stop these beating hearts

Once the threads of fate are severed
Our destinies will change forever 
So that we can see the dawn of a new day together

You and I will always be connected

Born to Be

“Born to be” by ナノ (nano.)

Translation of Lyrics (Click for Source)
OOH YEAH!!!

They bring me down
All the world is stereotypical
Playing out rules , but act another
Look now , you thought you had me by the upper hand
But I see through the cynical face you’ve covered

Four : Unleash the beast that lies inside of you
Three: Take on the fire that burns in front of you
Two: Let out the fear you feel surrounding you
One: Become the soul that you were born to be

If you lost your strategy dream that you’ve lived up until now with
Break the handle, and continue on with your ra ra-raging dreams
If you’re challenged by this life without any thrill
If you’re going to embrace these reckless emotions
Then surely you have to brace yourself
And break away from yourself

If it’s a destiny that steals everything from you
What should you go on through life believing?
Ask yourself, the way there’s nothing to lose or die for
If you fear your past scars
Are you prepared to throw even your future away?
The choice is yours to make
This is what I choose to live for

Random Kanji Knowledge: Shouri


————————————————————————————————————–
Random Kanji Knowledge: Kanji is a complicated means of conveying language. With literally thousands of symbols that have different readings depending on context, the layers of complexity can prove overwhelming. However, beyond the squiggly lines lies sophistication to those patient and diligent enough to learn. Kanji is really cool in this regard.
