'Hikikomori no Uta' by Jun Maeda - English Subtitles


Earlier this week on the 10th of March, VisualArt’s published a video with no prior warning, featuring a new song written, composed and even SUNG by Jun Maeda himself! It’s been known for a long time that he’s wanted to try his hand at singing his own songs, and now he is finally able to share his voice with the world. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to share this with your fans, Maeda! The song is called ‘Hikikomori no Uta’, roughly translated as “The Shut-In’s Song” or “Song of Withdrawal”. Below, you can view an English subtitled version of the original video produced by me, Aspirety, with the help of @SANchipinchi’s translations of the lyrics.
