“Azusa Nigou”

This song was used as Yuuichiro’s (Chad’s) plaintive image song in Sailor Moon S Episode 99Azusa Nigou was performed by a 1970’s J-idol duo called “Kariudo”. Originally released on as an EP record single, an updated version was released years later as a http://www.otokichi.com/cgi-bin/en/detail.cgi?artist_id=1459&original_id=4814&target=%5bj%2dartist%5dk&start=0CD single. The MP3 sounds a little different from the version in the episode (notably the chorus). The updated version of the song may be the one used in Sailor Moon. Credits: information, links to the singles, and lyrics romanization provided by Izak. I don’t know any more about it, as someone sent me the MP3 long ago.

Voice Actress Releases

Megumi Ogata

Haruka/Uranus’ voice actress released two unofficial Sailor Uranus songs which both sound very “Haruka”. Kaze ni Naru is a sound-alike to Initial U, the Sailor Stars single for Sailor Uranus performed by another singer. The other is Shiokaze ni Nosete, a softer love ballad. Megumi said this song is dedicated to a “green-haired girl”. She wrote the lyrics to both songs herself. Kaze ni Naru is available on the album MO. Shiokaze ni Nosete is available on both MO and Aitai (which also has Kaze ni Naritai). A live version of Shiokaze ni Nosete is on the album Live [em:ou] Concert Tour 1998. Credits: tracks and background information provided by Karen.
