Hello, everyone! Yoroshiki onegaishimasu!
« on: January 04, 2014, 12:57:17 am »
Hey there, people of the forums! Pleased to meet you. :D
It looks like there's something you're supposed to do when introducing yourself, so here I go!

Personal info:
Name: Call me Grace, but my real name is private. ;)
Sex: Female
Country of origin: USA
Age (upon joining): Somewhere between 13 and 18. Unfortunately, I'm not fully comfortable giving out my exact age.
Hobbies: Reading, playing iM@S, watching iM@S, watching other anime, playing other video games, reading manga (like the iM@S mangas), writing...oh yes, I love to write. And going online. :3

~Q&A~

Q: How did you come across this site?
A: I looked up "idolm@ster" on Google and it showed up. Hey, more iM@S fans! Cool!

Q: Why did you join this site?
A: To join up with other fans. Actually, to be perfectly honest, it's because I heard this song Chihaya sang, and I can't find it anywhere, so I joined the site to ask if anyone here new what it was. XD

Q: Do you play iDOLM@STER?
A: I currently only have Perfect Sun for my PSP and I play it often, even though it frustrates me beyond belief. I'm saving up for the Shiny Festa apps, and I really want a PS3 so I can play One for All! when it comes out.

Q: Who is your fave idol?
A: MAKOTO. WITHOUT A DOUBT. I'M SORRY YOU GUYS BUT I JUST LOVE HER TO DEATH. <3 Miki and Hibiki are second and third.

Q: Why is your username "Amazing_Grace"?
A: Why NOT?

Q: What are you into right now?
A: Honestly, you guys, Idolmaster: Xenoglossia is at the top of my list. Like, I love it so much. I know everyone thinks it's stupid, but I can't help it! It made me laugh! It made me cry! It made me scream at my computer screen for hours without end! IT MADE ME WISH FOR A SEASON TWO. HONESTLY.
Aside from that, I love a lot of other obscure animes, and writing fanfics.

Q: What is your motto?
A: ...motto...?
I don't think I have a motto, actually. But if I did, it would be, "THIS IS A MOTTO!!"


Q: Who's your favorite singer(s) right now?
A: In order from favorite to least favorite, my top five: Nagi Yanagi, Hiromi Hirata (honestly you guys I love her voice so much), Eri Kitamura, Asami Imai, and Yui Horie.

Q: Do you have any expectations from this site?
A: That I'll FINALLY FIND THE LYRICS TO THAT CHIHAYA SONG.

Now! I'd love it if any of you wanted to ask me what the song was. I will gladly tell you everything I've learned about it. I really want to know what it is, I think it's a cover song but...I just don't know. ;-;


ONWARDS, AOSHIMA!!!

Welcome! I like your motto. ;D

I'm surprised that we don't have a thread titled "What's that song?" or something. I'd love to help you identify the Chihaya song. I've heard a lot of her songs, but not all of them.

Thank you for the welcome! :D

OK, here's everything I know about the song. Its English title is Deep Blue (granted, we got that from Google Translate, soo...). My little sister found it on Youtube one day. It's a fast-paced song, heavy on guitar and violins. It has various instrumental breaks which focus on violin. The pattern of the song goes like...well, it's one unrelated thing at the beginning, then an instrumental break, verse 1, chorus, instrumental, verse 2, chorus, instrumental, bridge, chorus. Like that.

And it's kinda...kinda rock-ish? It sorta reminds me of something Angela would write, if you know who she is. Does that ring any bells?
(If I knew the lyrics, I wouldn't be asking. XD Sorry.)
And you read this already, but it was sung by Chihaya. I didn't find it listed under her Recorded Solos list.

(P.S. Sorry for the delay. ^^)


ONWARDS, AOSHIMA!!!

Only thing that pops into mind with what you've said. Did Imai cover this?

EDIT: Rereading your post, maybe not. Meh, sorry.

My first guesses are arcadia from Master Special 03, la festa sotto la luna from THE iDOLM@STER Radio: Utahime Rakuen, and possibly Nemuri Hime from Master Artist 2 First Season 05. Your description is from memory, right? I don't think that any of my guesses fit the pattern exactly.

Hmm...I took a look at the lyrics of the songs, and after listening to the song again (I have it on my iPod), from what I heard the lyrics of the songs you suggested didn't seem to match up to the song I'm thinking of.. ):

I once went through and listened to the lyrics, then wrote down what I heard. Obviously, these lyrics are wrong, especially since I'm not a native Japanese speaker so I don't know which words are actually words or not (not to mention Chihaya's English isn't the best, so some of the words may well be English), but if you guys think it would help, I could post what I heard here, and you could try to think of what matches up to that.

I do that with songs often. I call it "deciphering". I'm always way off once I find the real lyrics, though. XD


ONWARDS, AOSHIMA!!!

I will try. I think I can find it again, but no guarantees since my sister found it originally and videos I want seem to magically disappear from Youtube.

Also, Youtube is under parental block on my laptop. T_T Sigh. Tomorrow morning I get the block lifted, so I'll try to link you guys the song then. Until then, thanks for trying, I really appreciate it!

It's possible that the YouTube link is still in your browser's history, on the computer your sister found the video on. Also, I guess it couldn't hurt to post the results of your deciphering. :) I'm not a Japanese speaker, so I usually don't know the lyrics, but I'm familiar with the themes of some idolmaster songs.

... Shinsou?

Blazblue: Continuum Shift II Opening, sung by Asami Imai. Closer hit than my last one - sung by Chihaya's voice actress and actually means Deep Blue.

Grace, you could try SoundHound. I just tested it on three Chihaya songs, and it successfully identified two of them. I'm assuming that you have an iOS device with a microphone, because you're saving up for the Shiny Festa apps.

WAIT A MINUTE!

THAT'S IT!
THAT'S IT THAT'S IT!

SHINSOU! YES!
*does a happy dance* OH MY GOSH THANK YOU.

So it's not Chihaya, it's just Asami Imai! Got it!  ;D

I actually don't yet have an iOS device...which means that before I start saving for the apps, I need an iPad. :I I'm really just saving up a huge sum of money and hoping to buy everything I want at once.
But as you can see above, thanks to Cael, I've found it!

This is why you should never trust Google Translate, you guys. Because when I put the words "deep blue" into the English section and had it translated to Japanese, the ONE word it didn't give me was "Shinsou". If I had found that, I might have been able to find the song on my own. Oh well.

It's not actually a dictionary word, so to get any meaning out of it, you have to go by what each of its kanji mean.

深蒼 (しん・そう) - The first is the one for deep, the second is the elaborate version of blue (there's a simpler, more common version).

So now that's out of the way, welcome to the forums!
