Diorama (ディオラマ) is the ending for the Higurashi no Naku Koro ni 2008 live action movie adaptation. It was performed by Eiko Shimamiya and was written by Shimamiya herself. A single including the full version was released on 16th April, 2008; alongside the opening credits song for the same movie.

Diorama fades in after a reprise of the opening theme in the ending credits.


Lyrics

Kanji Romaji Translation

高速の
エレベーターで
街並みを
見下ろしながら

昇っていきます
屋上まで

Kousoku no
Erebētā de
Machinami wo
Mioroshi nagara

Nobotte ikimasu
Okujou made

Sailing within
A speeding elevator,
Whilst gazing down
Upon the townscape

I rise all the way
Up to the rooftop

高層の
ビルの上には
強い風
吹き抜けてても

金網越しにある
その情景は

Kousou no
Biru no ue ni wa
Tsuyoi kaze
Fukinuketete mo

Kanaamigoshi ni aru
Sono joukei wa

Resting upon
The skyscraper's heights...
Even as violent gusts
Of wind blow by

Beyond the wire mesh,
The spectacle that awaits is...

ラ・ディオラマ
ひとつも
リアリティの無い
おもちゃの街

ラ・ディオラマ
ココロが
流れださないように
閉じ込めた街

Wo・

Ra diorama
Hitotsu mo
Riariti no nai
Omocha no machi

Ra diorama
Kokoro ga
Nagaredasanai you ni
Tojikometa machi

Wo・

La Diorama
Without even
A shred of reality;
It's just a mere toy city

La Diorama
So that your heart
May not drift off,
This city has caged it away

Oh...

ラ・ディオラマ
あなたへの
リアリティ
時間が消してゆく

ラ・ディオラマ
ココロが
二度と求めないように
過去を

ラ・ディオラマ
呼吸の
リアリティ
今はどこにも無い

でもきっと
ココロは
息を吹き返してく
この街ごと・・・

Ra diorama
Anata e no
Riariti
Jikan ga keshite yuku

Ra diorama
Kokoro ga nidoto
Motomenai you ni
Kako wo

Ra diorama
Kokyuu no
Riariti
Ima wa doko ni mo nai

Demo kitto
Kokoro wa
Iki wo fukikaeshiteku
Kono machi goto...

La Diorama
Connecting to you,
That reality—
Is being wiped away by time

La Diorama
So that your heart
May never again yearn for
What is past

La Diorama
There isn't even a breath
Of reality
Anywhere to be found now

But I'm sure
Your heart will keep on
Breathing life steadily
Into this city and all...
