I saw this on national television the other night.
"Oshirikajirimushi" means "butt-biting bug."

Edit 2007-09-13: Dumb NHK had it pulled. (-_-)*

Edit 2008-02-02: I took down the ugly non-functional YouTube screen. To hear the song, you can visit the website for the upcoming Nintendo DS game.

Edit 2009-02-03: Dailymotion is hosting the video now:
Hooray for subtitles!

What I can't tell you

I wanted to tell you that when I came here, I was on a large ship full of strangers in the middle of the ocean. But over time I realized they were my family, and it had just taken me some time to recognize them.

And then the people I loved held a small ceremony, disowned me, set me on a raft and pushed me away, out to the empty sea, where the dark, hungry waters stretched beyond my comprehension. I wished I'd gone to heaven with the rest of them, and I wished they'd go to hell for leaving me.

I made a horrible mistake in thinking that you were my sister.

But I can't tell you that.
