This song is probably the easiest BABYMETAL song I’ve translated so far. It has a simple narrative, which is easy to follow, so there are no aspects of it that I am majorly unsure about. Well, there is one, actually: The line “We will be reborn” I initially had as “You will be reborn“. I changed it because I decided the song is not about Meta Taro as such, but rather the inspiration he brings out in others.
Just as a matter of interest, I only realized today that the first verse (which begins with Long ago) is obviously inspired by the opening text of the Star Wars movies. If you’ve seen BABYMETAL’s LIVE IN LONDON concerts, you’ll be aware that BABYMETAL have drawn inspiration from Star Wars before. Even the idea of having METAL RESISTANCE episodes (with Roman numerals, no less) comes from Star Wars, I think.
