’90s Video Game Songs Added to “Lyrics”
Published by 20 May 2012, 9:19 PM EDT

Well, it may be a week later than intended, but all video game songs from the 1990s (for the Super Famicom through the PlayStation and Sega Saturn) have been added to the “Lyrics” section. It may seem strange that even a 16-bit system would have had vocal music, but the majority of these (except for those from Final Bout) are arranged versions taken from the official soundtracks, which we feel is enough to justify their inclusion here. But at any rate, for those of you keeping score, this now means we now have the lyrics to all songs from the TV shows, films, specials, and video games (except for that one from the crossover title Battle Stadium D.O.N), in the original Japanese text, Romanized Japanese, and English translation.

That said, we’re nowhere near done. In the coming weeks and months, you can expect more English themes (from both international dubs and alternate versions by the original artists), plus some of the more popular image songs, and even some non-franchise songs that take their inspiration from the Dragon Ball franchise. But please be patient. After two-and-a-half months and over 70 translations (plus the transcription of the original Japanese text and the reformatting necessary for the new site), I need a little break. My daughter’s second birthday is coming up next week, after all. That said, these things will happen, and probably sooner rather than later. In the meantime, you can check out the good work Hujio’s been doing in getting the individual chapter pages of the Manga Guide back up. In short, more content, old and new, is on the way! Eventually…!

UPDATE: After having it pointed out in the comments that we were still missing one video game song, I’ve transcribed, romanized, translated, annotated, and uploaded the lyrics to the opening of the arcade game Dragon Ball Heroes. This time, I’m taking a break for real.
