LOVE TRIP is the coupling song to the peggies‘ double A-side single back in 2016 that also featured スプートニク (read as “Sputnik”, song translation for which can be found here).

I mean what else can you say about this sugary sweet song about an awkward budding love? A “love trip” of emotions, as one might experience, as they go through their first bout with confessing that they like someone with the intent of spending the rest of their life with them (haha, ikr). It’s mushy, youthfully innocent, and all-around fun — which about sums up ‘the peggies’ in as few words as possible.

They lean more towards the pop variety of girl bands as far as their sound is concerned, but don’t let that disuade you. What the peggies do; which is flood your ears with their quirky balance of girls rock and cute vocals; they do really well. the peggies have been finding their stride as of late (provding the first ED for Boruto, if any of you are familiar) so they’re definitely one to look out for.

Another translation request this week, this time from Abdul who reached out to me via the e-mail form found under my “Contact” tab up there in my home menu.

So yes, if you guys have songs you want translated (JP -> EN) you could either drop a line in my “Song Translations” page OR you can do what Abdul did and just send me an e-mail via the form in my “Contact” page — the only requirements being that the song doesn’t yet have an existing TL out in the web and that the lyrics in kanji are accessible somewhere.

Odds are I’ll get to working on it right away. Whether or not I finish right away is a different story, lol (reminder that I still have a standing list of TL suggestions from reader maskofsin, don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten man). It all depends on how hard I find the song is.

To echo off this sentiment I’d also like to point out that I’m still learning the language myself so these might not be the most accurate translations out there, so do take them with a grain of salt — and if you do know your stuff, please don’t hesitate to comment about what can be improved and worked on. I consider all my TLs a “live translation” in that they can always be fixed if need be.

Till I see ya next! 😀

  1. Plus Yuuho the singer tripped while filming the last chorus in the mv (which they covered up pretty well on the bottom right with the art thingies) and they were all laughing 😀 thanks for the translation and interpretation as well!

  2. Wait I didn’t read the start I’m dumb, anyways, still glad to see they’re being appreciated more than ever with Centimeter
