Touhou Anime Project Opening Theme – Soko ni Aru Mono

I’m in a Touhou mood, so if there are lyrics to some Touhou song you’d like, go straight to the Request tab and ask away. I’ll probably put up the lyrics in a day.

I admit that I’m very taken by the Touhou series, just because it’s ZUN. My favorite character is (excuse my lack of originality) Reimu since she looks the best. Of course, I suck horribly at the game. I can barely get past the first few levels on Easy mode and fare much worse on the harder modes.

The Things There
Vocals: Tokine
Production: Maikaze

I can’t hear the voices or even illusions
That may touch your heart… That’s how I feel

The moment when a faint figure goes across them, only the corners of dreams
Seem to be composed soundlessly

Existing in what shape can it be told?
The image that flickers for an instant is always…
Your hands stubbornly gripped
The feelings that just kept flowing

Even though the days are passing by naturally
Because you gave me the feelings to be able to think of now
I feel that I can go walk on the road continuing endlessly


My hands reflected in your eyes can’t feel
Love or even warmth… That’s how I feel

Spoken in what words can it be told?
Even now, the image that grows hazy for an instant…

Even like this, your hands surround
The feelings that just keep overflowing

Even if I repeat the same time over and over again
This moment now is certainly my promise with you
I feel that I can go look at the sky continuing endlessly


At the place where dreams and reality intersect, that’s right, are the lost fragments of hearts
The crowds of people that don’t know to halt, the all-too-fleeting existence known as ‘yourself’
There… The reverberation of the things there, the destination of the limitless time
But I know that my certain thoughts only exist here and nowhere else


Even if I repeat the same time over and over again
This moment now is certainly my truth with you
No matter how we’re separated, it can be felt

Even though the days are passing by naturally
Because you gave me the feelings to be able to think of now
I feel that I can go walk on the road continuing endlessly


Soko ni Aru Mono
Vocals: Tokine

Kimi no kokoro ni furete shimau hodo   koe mo   maboroshi sae mo
Kikoenai…   Sonna ki ga shite shimau

Awai sugata ga yokogiru shunkan   yume no katasumi dake ga
Oto mo naku tsuzurarete yuku mitai

Donna katachi de ireba tsutaerareta darou?
Setsuna ni yureru imeeji wa itsumo…
Tada nagaretsuzukeru kimochi o kimi no te wa
Katakuna ni nigitte kureta

Atarimae ni sugite yuku hibi na no ni
Ima o omoeru kimochi o anata ga kureta kara
Doko made mo tsuzuku michi o aruite yukeru ki ga suru


Kimi no hitomi ni   utsuru boku no te wa   ai mo   nukumori sae mo
Kanjinai…   Sonna ki ga shite shimau

Donna kotoba de ieba tsutaerareta no darou?
Setsuna ni kasumu imeeji wa ima mo…

Tada afuretsuzukeru omoi o kimi no te wa
Konna ni mo tsutsunde yuku

Onaji toki o nando kurikaeshite mo
Ima no kono toki ga kitto anata to no yakusoku
Doko made mo tsuzuku sora o mitsumete yukeru ki ga suru


Yume to genjitsu ga kousasuru basho   sou   mayoikonda kokoro no danpen
Todomaru koto o shiranai hito no mure   hakanasugiru jibun to iu sonzai
Soko ni…   Soko ni aru mono-tachi no zankyou   hateshinai jikan no yukisaki
Demo wakaru   koko ni shika nai tashika na omoi


Onaji toki o nando kurikaeshite mo
Ima no kono toki ga kitto anata to no shinjitsu
Donna ni hanarete ite mo kanjite irareru

Atarimae ni sugite yuku hibi na no ni
Ima o omoeru kimochi o anata ga kureta kara
Doko made mo tsuzuku michi o aruite yukeru ki ga suruI
