Kimi to, Nami ni Noretara – Ride Your Wave – English Subs [Yamenaideoneesama]

Torrent: Nyaa

Well, this took much longer than I thought. It’s not polished at all, and I’ve already found typos and stuff but I’m too lazy to re-render the whole thing again.
Only tested on MPC, so if it’s not working on another player, try with that.

I feel like I should write an actual blog post about all the stupid things I had to deal with or look up while working on this, but for now I just want to release it.

Doing a whole movie alone is pretty tiring. I forgot to even put in any sort of credits in the sub file! Either way, all the roles were filled by me, so I guess it doesn’t really matter.

The source I used to render this was from the Ohys-Raws BD release, but I actually timed and worked with an earlier Amazon video rip here. I had to offset the subs with the new file by 500ms, but I never checked too closely so it still might be a bit off.
Also I’m no pro at rendering video, so I somehow managed to re-render that 7GB 1080P FLAC release into a file just under 2GB… I highly doubt that’s a good thing, but oh well.

Anyways, this movie was a pretty fun watch, so I hope ya’ll enjoy it!

Edit: v2 is out, and the torrent link has been updated

Brand New Story – GENERATIONS from EXILE TRIBE English Lyrics (Theme from Ride Your Wave/Kimi to, Nami ni Noretara) / 映画「きみと、波にのれたら」主題歌

I’m in the middle of subbing Kimi to, Nami ni Noretara (きみと、波にのれたら/Localised as Ride Your Wave) and thought that since the song features so largely as part of the movie and I had to translate it in the subs, I might as well put up the lyric translation here as well. Overall I’m done about 30 mins out of the 90 minute movie, so it’ll probably take another week or so to finish.

The lyrics are pretty roughly translated, with some slight effort in trying to localise the flow/meaning but it’s still relatively literal. Feel free to take them, use them, improve them, whatever, but just know I did a quick and dirty job here for the sake of my subtitles. I don’t even have proper line to line mapping or punctuation because that’s how it is in my subtitle file and I’m too lazy to make it all nice just for this.

PS: You can listen to the song itself here


As you gaze at the water’s surface
It sparkles like a billion stars
And as the colours change bit by bit
The light shines on and on

Sometimes fate will point us
Towards an arduous path
And we grind to a standstill
But if we could just get through the pain

That’s right, the moment you open your eyes
It’s the start of a Brand New Story
By taking that first step forward
Your path will open right up
All so we can head
To that promised place

The times of tears
Are sure to number
Countless more than laughter or smiles, you know
But you see,
The thing with tears is
They’ll always dry up eventually

The same wave will
Never come washing up again
Let’s hold on tight and face it right
The fact that we are here right now

That’s right
Take your imagination
Make it shine as a Brand New Story
And so as the seasons go on
We’ll take these growing feelings
And hold them inside my heart
Forever and on

The memories from those bygone days
Will never ever disappear
Within our ever glowing
Inner hearts

So let keep on facing forward
And hold a bit of courage

That’s right, the moment you open your eyes
It’s the start of a Brand New Story
By taking that first step forward
Your path will open right up
All so we can head
To that promised place

My Brand New Story

Schizophrenia – Chapter 42

This is probably going to be the last chapter of Haunted Duke’s Daughter until August sometime. The reason being that we’re both going to Japan for roughly the same period of time. There are a few chapters that are about 80% complete, so hopefully we’ll be able to push them out a bit faster when we get back. But for now, this is chapter 42.

After they finished their tea, Alisa came to collect their cups. Lilia stood from her seat, getting Sera’s attention.

“Now then, Sera. Before anything else, there are some things I must have you do.”

Sera was a little surprised, but nodded firmly. The slightly frightened expression on her face bothered Lilia, but she reluctantly ignored it.

“Go and apologise to Tina.”

When Lilia said that, Sera was lost for words, and her face immediately paled. For a noble—especially a high-ranking noble—her reaction was easy to understand. Why should I have to lower my head to my inferior? She was probably thinking something of that nature. Lowering your head to lower-ranking nobles and commoners was thought of as nothing short of humiliation.

“Sera. I’ll say this right now.”


“If I’m going to be responsible for you from now on, stop looking down on lower-ranking nobles, commoners, and the like.”

Likely not expecting those words, Sera gulped and nodded gravely.

—Try your best too, Lilia.

—I know that…

Lilia didn’t realise she’d been looking down on her surroundings that much, but it seemed that those around her saw her differently. It was something she still needed to work on, she supposed.

“Now then, let’s go. I won’t allow you to refuse.”

When Lilia said as much, Sera rose from her chair in resignation.

As usual, the moment Lilia stepped foot on the second floor, the students around her fell completely silent. However, seemingly starting to get used to her presence, they soon went back to their own conversations. This time, Sera was with her, but perhaps because her presence wasn’t as startling as Lilia coming down here, nobody took any further notice of them.

“You just entered the room, Mistress Lilia, and yet nobody has greeted you…!”

“Sera, stop it.”

“Ah…I didn’t…please excuse me.”

Sera meekly lowered her head. Lilia sighed and crossed over the second floor entrance. She could feel a few gazes lingering on her, but that was it.

When they arrived in front of Tina’s room, Lilia immediately knocked on the door.

“M-Mistress Lilianne…!”

“What? It’s not as if you need to prepare yourself. Just acknowledge your mistake and apologise for it.”

“That…might be so, but…”

Sera was chewing the inside of her cheeks, looking as if she wanted to say something, but Lilia took no notice of it. Eventually, the door opened, and Tina came out. When she saw Lilia, Tina smiled, and when she noticed Sera, her expression turned to confusion.

“Lilia, what brings you here? Who is this…?”

“Sera Valdia. She’s from the Earl Valdia family. She’s one of the people who sent you those inane letters.”

When she heard that, Tina’s eyes opened wide, and she fixed her gaze on Sera. Sera awkwardly looked away, so Lilia glared at her slightly. Sera immediately rectified her attitude.

“Um…Miss Tina…”


Tina yelped her reply and straightened her back. Sera aside, Lilia wondered what Tina was so nervous about. Incidentally, Sakura was trying to hold back her laughter inside Lilia’s mind. Was there really something all that amusing happening here?

“A few days ago, I did something very disrespectful. Please accept my deepest apologies.”

Sera lowered her head, and Tina visibly hesitated, wondering how she should respond. Lilia lending a hand to Tina—is something she didn’t do, and she instead quietly watched over the interaction between the two.

“Um… You don’t need to worry about me, so it’s alright…”

“Thank you very much.”

Hearing Tina somehow force those words out, Sera answered her as such with her head lowered. After that, there was an awkward silence that stretched on for some time. Tina looked to Lilia for help, but Lilia pretended not to notice.


Tina thought for a little while, and spoke.

“If you like…please come in.”

The two of them were invited into Tina’s room.

As expected, Tina didn’t have three chairs in her room, so she asked Sera to sit on the bed and Lilia to sit at her study desk. This was probably Tina’s way of being considerate of Lilia, but she ignored her and sat next to Sera. This time, Sera was the one out of sorts, but Lilia paid it no mind.

However, likely feeling sorry for Sera, Tina said this with a wry smile.

“Lilia. I feel sorry for Miss Sera, so sit over here.”

“I suppose it can’t be helped…”

Lilia sat in the chair, and Sera breathed a sigh of relief. Seeing that, Tina smiled.

“I’m surprised, though. I can’t believe you suddenly brought her over here…”

“This is the sort of thing you should apologise personally for, right? I’ll bring along the other five people too, at some point.”

“No, it’s fine. In fact, please don’t. That’s way too much pressure…”

Is that how it is, Lilia thought to herself, finding her reaction strange. But it couldn’t be helped, so Lilia acquiesced.

“Still, you didn’t need to go this far for me, Lilia.”

“I simply did as I wished to do. It’s not something you need to worry about, Tina.”

“Geez… Lilia, despite everything you’re saying, you really are nice.”

When Tina said that with a wry smile, Sera, who was sitting next to her, raised her head. Probably because she looked up so vigorously, Tina was surprised. Sera looked directly at Tina and said,

“Miss Tina… You, you understand…”

“E-Eh? What do I understand?”

“Mistress Lilianne’s kindness!”

Sera stood up and shouted this. Lilia was dumbfounded, but Tina’s lips curled into a smile.

“Yeah! Lilia is kind, isn’t she? I wonder why other people don’t seem to understand that?”

“It’s exactly as you say! They must all be blind. I misunderstood you, Miss Tina. You see the real Mistress Lilianne. We must talk more!”

“Right you are! Yes, yes! Let’s talk much, much more!”

I wonder why. They started getting overly excited when the topic of Lilia came up. In front of the person herself, no less. Lilia wanted them to think about her feelings a little. At first, Sakura was dumbfounded along with Lilia, but now she was roaring with laughter.

—Hey, Sakura. Hasn’t this become a hassle? Why are these two putting me on a pedestal?

—Ahaha! I think it’s fine! You’re kind, Lilia, so you should overlook these things!

—With just Tina before, it was already a hassle…but now there’s another one…

—Rather, since they’ve begun meshing so well it’s making the situation even worse! The chemical reaction it’s caused will raise the hassle by at least threefold!

It seemed Sakura was really enjoying the current situation. Lilia heaved a heavy sigh, and looked to the heavens.

—Sakura. Do something.

—The fact that you’re loved is a good thing. Hang in there, Lilia. Ah, but if they end up making a fan club, I’m not giving the #1 spot away. That’s mine.

—It’s starting to feel like you stopped joking a while ago…

Feeling a headache coming on, Lilia pressed her finger to her forehead and sighed deeply.

Schizophrenia – Chapter 41

Hey, so this delay is basically due to me as expected. Kudos to the new TL on always getting their work done. In fact, seeing how much less work it is to just spend an hour doing TLC for his chapters, I almost wanna just retire into that position at this point. Hahaha. Anyways, Enjoy!



“Just what… Is going on here?”

Everyone was silent towards Lilia’s question. Even Kris awkwardly averted her gaze and looked elsewhere. When Lilia turned her eyes towards her two followers, they shrunk back, trembling.

“It has nothing to do with you.”

Seemingly unable to endure the silence, Kris spoke. Lilia glanced over at her, and nodded in agreement.

“True. And what I decide to do is none of your business either.”


As Kris was tilting her head at Lilia’s sudden declaration, Lilia made her way over to Sera. She stood in front of her desk and called out.



“Sera Valdia!”

Sera jumped at hearing her full name called and quivered in her seat. She timidly peered at Lilia’s face. Expressionless and calm, Lilia looked down at Sera.

“We need to talk. Come with me.”

“Eh… Umm, to where…?”

Sera asked with fear in her eyes. Lilia felt a tinge of irritation.

“Does it really matter? Just come with me already.”


Sera sprung up from her seat hearing the coldness in Lilia’s words. Lilia began walking, and Sera after her.

“Well then, everyone, have a good day.”

When Lilia said those words with a smile as she bid them farewell, everyone in the classroom couldn’t help but stiffen their expressions in unison.

Lilia brought Sera back to her room at the dorm. They sat down at a table facing each other. Full cups of black tea were set in front of them, which Lilia had tasked Alisa with preparing beforehand.
In the middle of the table was dorayaki bought from the south side. They weren’t exactly the best pairing for black tea, but Sakura kept pestering Lilia about how she wanted to taste them again so Lilia had them brought out here. These were in fact brought over just yesterday by Tina when she’d come to visit.

Lilia picked up a dorayaki and took a bite, indicating with her hand for Sera to help herself as well. Sera, while perplexed by all this, still reached out to take one and put it in her mouth.

“…! It’s, really good…”

“Right? This is a confection from the southern district. They’re one of my new favourites.”

Sera looked on in wide-eyed surprise at hearing about the southern district. Though Lilia found it laughable that it could be shocking to such a degree, she herself would probably have had the exact same reaction if she had heard that some other upper class nobles had gone to the southern district.

“Well then, Sera. It’s about time we get to the main topic.”

With Lilia beginning the real conversation, Sera quietly closed her eyes, and nodded. Straightening her back, she went to look straight into Lilia’s eyes in seriousness.

“Sera, what is that you plan to do from here on?”

“I was thinking of returning back home.”

Her answer was just as expected.

“For all the trouble that I have caused you, Miss Lilianne, please accept my deepest apologies.”

Sera deeply lowered her head. Seeing that display, Lilia gave a scornful laugh.

“So basically, you’re going to run away. How disappointing.”

“For you… To be saying that…”

Sera’s eyes narrowed, but she soon came back to herself with a start, and lowered her head once again. Lilia felt there was quite enough of the head lowering already, but she decided to let her do as she pleased.

“I spoke rashly. My humblest apologies.”

Rashly, so she says, but that was probably just her real feelings leaking out. The one who drove Sera to this point was Lilia after all. What’s more, there was that incident where Lilia did in fact run away from the Prince herself, becoming a shut-in. That was probably where her words stemmed from. However, Lilia ignored all of that. Sticking to calling the kettle black, she looked coldly at Sera.

“No matter what anyone says, the fact that you have chosen the option to run away will not change. Or perhaps, are you planning on coming back again afterwards?”

At that question, Sera weakly shook her head, as one would expect. Lilia felt like she could, ever so slightly, understand what Sera was feeling. She herself was someone who had run away, and if not for Sakura, she likely wouldn’t have ever come back to the academy again. Although, according to that ‘story’ of Sakura’s, going back to the academy did indeed happen to her.

“So you don’t intend to remain at this academy?”

“No… Honestly, I cannot endure it. I’ve come to realise that during this one week.”

That was quite understandable. Though Lilia had only seen her situation during lunchtimes, it would definitely take something else to withstand being so thoroughly ignored. It was, in a sense, even harsher than simply getting harassed.

“Well then, Sera. I wonder if you have any intention of taking the third option.”

“The… Third option?”

“Yes, Sera. You, shall become one of my people.”

Not understanding Lilia’s declaration, Sera tilted her head.

“Though it’s not like I’m telling you to become my maid, or anything. In a certain sense, it would be like going back to how we were before all this. Following under me, and abiding by my orders. All the while, you would come under my protection. That’s not such a bad deal, is it?”

“That… Would be quite advantageous for myself, but… How is there anything in this for you, Mistress Lilianne? In any case, I do not see any reason for you to take in someone regarded as an enemy of His Highness. And I am certain that the other two would happily take on this same offer…”

“I have no need for something like that.”

Sera’s expression cramped up upon hearing that. Up until recently, she had been in the exact same boat as the other two, and she never expected to hear that they were actually unnecessary. Putting it that way, it was like her whole school life up until now had been denied at its very core. But of course, it was them who had chosen to cling to Lilia, so they had no right to blame her, either.

“I have no need for someone who could betray me at any point. And regarding that, you no longer have anyone you can rely on other than me. There would be no way for you to betray me. One couldn’t ask for a more convenient chess piece.”

Lilia let out a vulgar laugh. Sera’s face paled in response to this, but she did not deny it.

“However, His Highness has it out for me at the moment.”

“Oh my, is that really a problem? There’s no need to worry about that kind of guy, at all.”

That kind of talk would definitely get you punished for lese majeste outside of the academy. Sera’s eyes went wide, and then, she let out a wry smile.

“I’d been under the impression that all of this might have been a plan to get back with His Highness, but those words just now were your true feelings huh.”

“Get back with His Highness? Me? Please don’t say that even as a joke, it’s quite disgusting.”

“Mistress Lilia, perhaps that might be a bit much.”

Alisa, who was standing at the ready behind Lilia, finally felt she couldn’t look on anymore and chided her lady to mind her words bit more. Lilia simply shrugged, and responded that she’ll be more careful. Sera looked on at this exchange with great interest.

“You seem quite close even though she is your maid.”

“Well, it’s not as if there’s a rule against being close with your servants or anything.”

“Yes, I suppose so.”

Sera let out a relaxed laugh, but very quickly returned to a serious expression. She looked directly into Lilia’s eyes, as Lilia returned her gaze. Without a trace of mirth, she asked seriously.

“Mistress Lilianne, is it really alright? It may be strange coming from me, but as I am now, I believe I am no more than a liability.”

“Well, I certainly don’t think so. Right now, I am asking you to come under my command. Make a decision already and give me your answer.”

As Lilia began to feel a tinge of irritation and strengthened her tone, Sera immediately bowed before her. It was to apologise, as well as,

“I shall be under your care, Mistress Lilianne.”

“Very well. Best regards.”

Hearing Sera’s words, a satisfied smile rose up on Lilia’s face.



Author’s note:
We shall see about that all-out confrontation with Kris.





<Previous Chapter | JAONNN! | Next Chapter>

Schizophrenia – Chapter 40

A reminder that statuses for upcoming chapters are updated here every week.

“Before I came here, I overheard several people talking about it. There was talk of His Highness The Prince breaking off his engagement before, but now it seems to be confirmed.”

“S-So it would seem…”

—Lilia, calm down! Yer voice ish trembling!

—You’re the one talking strangely. So what, did this boy actually know who I am?

—I-I don’t think so. No, I don’t think he does. He was probably just bringing up something to talk about, I think.

Lilia peered at Ray’s expression indiscreetly. He was glaring at the textbook at front of him, and then he let out a moan.

“Ray, why…why are you bringing up this Lilianne person all of a sudden?”

“Huh? No real reason. For her to be able to get into a quarrel with the prince, I was simply wondering just what kind of person she was. Come to think of it, you’re also part of the upper-class nobility, aren’t you, Mistress Lilia? Have you met Mistress Lilianne before?”

—Sakura. Which one is it? Has he realised who I am? Or has he not?

—Nn…He probably…hasn’t realised.

—Alright. I’ll trust your judgement, Sakura.

Lilia took a deep breath, and reciprocated Ray’s gaze. Ray’s smile was carefree as always. Seeing that, Lilia couldn’t believe that he was deceiving her.

“I do know of her. However, I haven’t talked with her personally.”

—Yup. That’s not a lie.

“Ah, that makes sense. Just based off the fact that she was quarrelling with His Highness The Prince, she sure seems like quite the self-important person, huh?”

“Y-You could be right there…”

Lilia’s expression stiffened. Knowing nothing about her, it would be easy to see her that way. As Lilia was thinking to herself, perhaps I should think more carefully about the way I conduct myself, Sakura said:

—Umm, Lilia. People who do know you well also think you’re self-important.

—That’s… I’ll take more care from now on…

“I’m sure I’ll have the chance to talk to her eventually.”

Before she could say something tactless or unnecessary, Lilia tried to bring the topic to a close. Whether he realised what she was doing or not, Ray said,

“Oh, really? I’ll look forward to it.”

He said so with a smile. Lilia returned a vague smile of her own, and brought her gaze back to her book.


After that, Lilia’s normal everyday life continued for some time. From the next day onward, Sera no longer followed Lilia around. However, it wasn’t as if she’d stopped coming to class altogether. She simply remained at her own desk quietly.

Of course, when Lilia entered the room, at first Sera tried to start a conversation with her. However, when Lilia ignored her, she gave up and returned to her own seat. After that, every time someone she knew came in, Sera tried to talk to them, too—but nobody wanted to speak with her.

Even so, the fact that Sera didn’t attempt to flee from the classroom was something Lilia could honestly praise her for. Lilia didn’t know whether that was because Sera had reflected on her actions or not, but for the moment, it seemed she wasn’t going to make a move.

By way of a rumour, Lilia had heard that Sera was summoned by the prince after school had ended. The prince likely pushed her relentlessly for answers. Lilia hoped Sera and the prince would both take something away from the incident, but Sakura thought that would be expecting too much.

Incidentally, Tina was quite troubled when she heard about this. However, in front of Lilia, she simply gave her a strained smile and thanked her.

By the weekend, nothing had changed. Sera sat at her own seat, and cast her gaze down in silence.

—Hey, Lllia.

Sakura’s voice echoed in her head, and Lilia turned her thoughts to that.

—Is it okay to leave those five people aside from Sera alone?

Sakura was referring to the remaining five people who had sent those notes to Tina. From her agents’ investigation, Lilia knew who the culprits were. Yet, Lilia had not laid a hand on any of those five people.

—There’s no need. By making an example of Sera, I don’t think there’s anyone left stupid enough to pester Tina any further. Well, it’ll likely only serve as a temporary measure, though.

—Hmmm…that’s fine, then.

At that moment in their conversation, the teacher, followed by the prince, entered the classroom. Just as usual, the teacher sat at his desk, the prince at his, and class began. And of course, Lilia…

—Today’s lesson isーscience!

—Yes, yes.

In order to listen to Sakura’s lecture, Lilia tuned everything else out.


The morning classes were over, as was lunch, and so Lilia spent the afternoon at the library. After this completely ordinary day came to an end, Lilia didn’t head back to her room, but rather, headed towards the classroom.

Just as class ended, the teacher came out of the classroom. When he saw Lilia, his eyes opened wide.

“Sir, aren’t you being a bit disrespectful?”

“A-ahh…Sorry about that. I didn’t think you’d be coming back… But, Aldis–and I realise I’m being a bit rude–but I don’t want to be told that by someone who doesn’t even pay attention in class.”

“Oh my, so you did realise. My deepest apologies.”

“It’s obvious you have no intention of changing your attitude. Well, while your grades are still good, I won’t say anything more.”

The teacher ended the conversation there, and without saying anything else, disappeared down the hallway. Lilia watched him until he was out of sight, and a slight sense of admiration showed on her face.

—That teacher, he realised, huh. That you weren’t paying any attention to his class.

—I didn’t think that he’d realised…surprisingly, he saw straight through me. I need to be more careful.

If that class was at least a little more meaningful, Lilia started thinking, but comparing it to Sakura’s lectures was perhaps too harsh. Lilia sighed slightly, and then opened the door to the classroom.

The classroom was full of students making idle chatter, but as soon as Lilia stepped in, the room fell quiet. They really didn’t need to be so mindful of me, thought Lilia as she looked from one end of the classroom to the other. Nobody would meet her eyes.

Though she felt that something was off, Lilia started looking for the person she’d come here to see; Sera. And she found her instantly.

Sera was still sat in her own seat. Because she was looking down, Lilia couldn’t see the expression on her face. And surrounding Sera were Kris and her entourage. Lilia could also see her other two followers hanging around the same place. Just by seeing that, Lilia could imagine what these girls were up to.

—Just what is that Idiot Prince doing?

—He’s nowhere around, huh. Well, he’s an unpredictable guy that can disappear at any moment, so I guess it can’t be helped.

—Well, he is still a prince, even if he doesn’t act like it. It’s possible he has been summoned to the castle. More importantly…

When Lilia looked at Kris and everyone standing around her, they all averted their eyes. My, my, Lilia thought as she started walking over to them.

—Lilia. Help her out, okay?

—I know.

Lilia kept her reply short, and moved to stand in front of Kris and her entourage.


Author’s Note:
Mr. Teacher is surprisingly perceptive.
