It's on youtube but I cannot find any translations.

Full lyrics? Anybody?

We can proceed to discuss them.

Thank you!

Seems like I searched all the lyrics sites but the one that ended up having it.

TBH it could've packed a bit more oomph both lyrically & musically compared to the other musical entries.

The overall emphasis is not entirely what I'd predicted though I must say there's something very touching about this emphasis on treasuring precious memories.

I hope to get a second opinion/in depht on the end of the second verse.

Now I really wanna see that one 'unofficial image song' by Ogata and the new beautiful world version if it wasn't just a rumor.

The EP is already available to stream in my area (Indonesia). Here's my impressions:

The new Beautiful World is indeed real and it's a completely new arrange than a remix, in fact it's the EP's second track and the transition from OLK to Shin BW is so seamless they're essentially a medley!

Both songs are great and I liked OLK a hell lot more than I expected. I once said it sounds like an Ed Sheeran song in a bad way but having listened to it from start to finish, I can say I genuinely liked it. Hell, I LOVED it even. Utada never misses.

OLK, especially the second chorus, reminded me of Face My Fears, the song she made with Skrillex for Kingdom Hearts III. It doesn't go "club" as hard, but the influences are there in terms of production.

Yeah, the second half definitely has that strong EDM feel but in a way that really immersed me than taking me out of it. Curious on how I'll feel about it once I've seen the film but, those who've seen it think the song really fits so that's encouraging.

Encouraging Indeed. If that's gonna be the mood... 'bittersweet but validating/appreciating'

I just wanna see the bloody film darnit

The songs fading perfectly into each other makes me wonder if there's EoE style mid film credits

Damn the new version of BW is really special. I imagine the moment it plays must be REALLY powerful.

EDIT: reflecting a bit on it, you can see a direct line connecting Sakura Nagashi and One Last Kiss. Beautiful work Hikki.

Just heard it.(it's on youtube now)

It's surprisingly different and super duper ethereal/ emotional
Gets all the feels going again just like the 2.0 version did.

It reminds me a bit of NiN's "All the love in the world" in the way that the energy and mood drastically changes throughout from miserable to energized.


Not having seen the film, I can only speculate what might merit this.
The two main theories for whose PoV Beautiful World is supposed to be from (if it's anyone at all) were Rei and Misato, so if I had to speculate what might merit that...

- Misato Reconcilliation (maybe she hugs Shinji the exact moment the strings start up)
- Misato pulls a heroic Sacrifice
- Rei II returns with some visual spectacle
- She doesn't physically return but there's some 'spiritual' farewell scene - like the "hand grasping" scene at the end of FF7. Maybe here the transition goes from acceptance of parting to some confident resolution to solve the plot
- something else entirely that will blindside us all

The book ends effect alone is bound to get the feels going. It will probably represent some sort of return or circle, but a circle of what? (maybe the same camusian acceptance of EoE conveyed different) We were told to look at the "story that repeats" quote again before this so yeah.

To think that some lucky bastards already know the answer.

I love this one!

I actually imagined playing when Shinji gets inside Unit 01 for some reason. There is just a sense of finality to it that made me feel like I could see Unit 01 slowly walking in a distorted, hurt world but yet still full of hope. The juxtaposition of the most feared being in the universe moving towards a future of peace.

I'm sure I'm totally wrong but that's the beauty of speculating. ^_^

That would also go with the change in energy here. EVA in general is very good with drawing the subtle changes in expression

...actually makes more sense come to think of it they'll prolly not play his when you can't hear it over the dialogue.

Here's another link?

It's coming to all digital platforms at your local 00:00 of the 9th. You'll just have to wait a bit more it seems.

There is an explanation on Evangelion's official website why this version was created, by the way.
Edit: I'm listening right now using a VPN. I really liked! ^_^

Thanks for the link, I don't follow anything Eva related anymore so I didn't know they talked openly about it.

I assure you that half those views are Me.

Still makes you see how many of us there are worldwide

You could probably fill a small country with just all the eva fans

at least were not the only ones waiting
