"At the ◯◯◯48 theater..." is a blog dedicated to posting translations of ***48 songs, as well as songs from subunits within each group. SDN song translations (as well as a ton of info about the 48 groups' "older sisters") can be found at my other blog all about SDN48, "Ganbariina!" So check that one out too, OK? :3

But a word of warning - don't expect this blog to have a fair sampling of all the groups. There are some that I don't really care for, and thus don't really want to waste time translating (they've usually got enough fans anyway, though, so it's not like I'm leaving you out in the cold). You'll probably get a general feel for which groups those are fairly shortly. XD

Songs will be tagged with the following:
- Artist
- Single/Album
  - If it's from a single, is it the A-side or a C/W?
- Subject matter (Is it a cheering song? A love song? A funny song? etc)
- Season/Time of the year (if applicable): Does the song mention a specific season/time of the year, or is it set during a specific season/time of the year?

There might be more if I think of them. XD I had considered a "Male POV" vs "Female POV" vs "Neutral POV" tag, but so many of the ***48 songs are from a Male POV the whole thing would have been kind of redundant after a while.

AKB48 (Himawari-gumi) - Kioku no Dilemma

This is one of my favorite songs from Himawari-gumi's 2nd stage (and I swear, it's not just cause one of my favorite members is in it XD). I'm just a sucker for a sad song, I guess, but this is one of those instances where AkiP thought up a scene and just described it down to the last little bit, so that even if you've never been in this situation, you almost feel like you have, or that you're even on that beach right now.

SKE48 - Koi wo Kataru Shijin ni Narenakute

Yeah, can you tell I'm on kind of an SKE kick? =X

Anyway, this is the first song from SKE48's 3rd stage, "Seifuku no Me". One day I decided to sit and watch S3, because, despite having the album, I usually just skipped to "favorite" tracks and kind of ignored the others. Then I thought, "Gee, that's not really fair..." and less than a minute in, I'd already found a new favorite song, lol. Actually, I grew to like all of S3 after that, and would call it one of my favorite stages, so... I might just translate all of it, lol.

Anyway, enough of my rambling. m(_ _)m

SKE48 - Pareo wa Emerald

The first song up is the title track from SKE48's 6th (and latest) single, "Pareo wa Emerald".
