BackgroundEdit

This song seems to be about westernization in Japan, which happened during the Meiji Restoration. Despite having an upbeat, oriental track, the song contains rather dark themes, mentioning guillotines and ICBMs. In addition, the lyrics state things such as "Not even a lamenting song is available" (嘆ク唄モ聞コエナイヨ) and "This is a banquet inside a steel jail cell" (此処は宴 鋼の檻).

To celebrate the song's anniversary, it was re-released along with 8 different arranges in the album 1st ANNIVERSARY! ALL THAT "Senbonzakura" on September 12, 2012.

"Senbonzakura" was released as a single under the label KarenT. This song is also featured in the albums 5th ANNIVERSARY BEST, EXIT TUNES PRESENTS Vocalodream feat. 初音ミク, HATSUNE ROCK feat.初音ミク, Kurousa Works feat.初音ミク -黒うさP作品集-, V love 25~Brave Heart~, ボーカロイド超ベスト-impacts-, ボカロ超ミックス feat. 初音ミク, Hatsune Miku 5th Anniversary Best ~impacts~, 初音ミク-Project DIVA-F Complete Collection, 創造Endless, VOCA NICO☆PARTY, and Yoen Waso Emaki. Multiple covers and remixes have been included in additional albums.

This song has entered the Hall of Legend and is notable for having stayed in the VOCALOID ranking consistently for a long time.

LyricsEdit

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
大胆不敵にハイカラ革命 Daitan-futeki ni haikara kakumei
磊々落々(らいらいらくらく)反戦国家 Rairai-rakuraku hansen kokka
日の丸印の二輪車転がし Hinomaru-jirushi no nirinsha korogashi
悪霊退散 ICBM Akuryou-taisan I C B M

環状線を走り抜けて 東奔西走なんのその Kanjousen o hashirinukete touhon-seisou nan no sono
少年少女戦国無双 浮世の随(まにま)に Shounen shoujo sengoku-musou ukiyo no manima ni

千本桜 夜ニ紛レ 君ノ声モ届カナイヨ Senbonzakura, yoru ni magire, kimi no koe mo todokanai yo
此処は宴 鋼の檻 その断頭台で見下ろして Koko wa utage hagane no ori sono dantoudai de mioroshite

三千世界 常世之闇(とこよのやみ) 嘆ク唄モ聞コエナイヨ Sanzen sekai, tokoyo no yami, nageku uta mo kikoenai yo
青藍(せいらん)の空 遥か彼方 その光線銃で打ち抜いて Seiran no sora haruka kanata sono kousenjuu de uchinuite

百戦錬磨の見た目は将校 Hyakusen-renma no mitame wa shoukou
いったりきたりの花魁(おいらん)道中 Ittari-kitari no oiran douchuu
アイツもコイツも皆で集まれ Aitsu mo koitsu mo minna de atsumare
聖者の行進 わんっ つー さん しっ Seija no koushin wan tsuu san shi

禅定門(ぜんじょうもん)を潜り抜けて 安楽浄土厄払い Zenjoumon o kugurinukete anraku-joudo yakubarai
きっと終幕(さいご)は大団円 拍手の合間に Kitto saigo wa daidan’en hakushu no aima ni

千本桜 夜ニ紛レ 君ノ声モ届カナイヨ Senbonzakura, yoru ni magire, kimi no koe mo todokanai yo
此処は宴 鋼の檻 その断頭台で見下ろして Koko wa utage hagane no ori sono dantoudai de mioroshite

三千世界 常世之闇(とこよのやみ) 嘆ク唄モ聞コエナイヨ Sanzen sekai, tokoyo no yami, nageku uta mo kikoenai yo
希望の丘 遥か彼方 その閃光弾を打ち上げろ Kibou no oka haruka kanata sono senkoudan o uchiagero

環状線を走り抜けて 東奔西走なんのその Kanjousen o hashirinukete touhon-seisou nan no sono
少年少女戦国無双 浮世の随(まにま)に Shounen shoujo sengoku-musou ukiyo no manima ni

千本桜 夜ニ紛レ 君ノ声モ届カナイヨ Senbonzakura, yoru ni magire, kimi no koe mo todokanai yo
此処は宴 鋼の檻 その断頭台を飛び降りて Koko wa utage hagane no ori sono dantoudai o tobiorite

千本桜 夜ニ紛レ 君が歌い僕は踊る Senbonzakura, yoru ni magire, kimi ga utai, boku wa odoru
此処は宴 鋼の檻 さあ光線銃を撃ちまくれ Koko wa utage hagane no ori saa kousenjuu o uchimakure
