Because my best friend Saki wanted me to translate “Minna no Tamago” into Mandarin for her XP

So I figured, well, I’m translating it, and I have to check out if the timing and everything works anyways, might as well record myself attempting to sing it!!! So okay, the singing kind of sucks… my voice is tired from recording asf;kjadk;j groupdub lines, most of which were overdue T.T And I chose to one-shot this because that’s just easier for editing purposes. This is the second attempt XD

But I’m proud of my translation ^.^ I think I kept the spirit of the original lyrics in both meaning and poetic elements (aka kiddie onomatopeias for the “pyon pyon fumu fumu” sort of stuff, and also the repeating “blahblabhblah no koto” things in my translation).

Then again, my Mandarin is getting kind of rusty, and I have the vocabulary of about a middle-schooler, so… maybe they actually really suck and I just can’t tell XD

I also apologize for any mispronunciations, but I don’t usually take care of all my rhotic consonants when I talk, so it was really confusing trying to make sure they were all there when I sang this (since I don’t want to be teaching Saki bad Mandarin…)

Anyways… here ’tis:

WHEEEEE!!! Makes me want to translate more things (not necessarily into Mandarin) XD
