Koi no Yokushiryoku

From Metal Gear Wiki
(Redirected from Love Deterrence)
Koi no Yokushiryoku cover (Paz's schoolgirl dress is fused with the cover, while the coversheet has her in her underwear).

"Koi no Yokushiryoku" (English: "Love Deterrence"; also transcribed as "Koi no Yokushi-ryoku") is a character image song for Paz Ortega Andrade. This is the first image song produced for the Metal Gear series, and was also done in a manner similar to songs from the J-POP genre of music. The song was written by Akihiro Honda, with words by Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker Sound Team, vocals by Nana Mizuki. The maxi single was released on April 7, 2010 in Japan. The single will also include a karaoke version and a "Guy's Special Version" arranged by Sōsaku Sasaki. On March 23, a promotional video (PV) for the song was released onto Kojima Production's YouTube. An album version Koi no Yokushiryoku -type EXCITER- will be included in Nana Mizuki's 8th album IMPACT EXCITER, arranged by Daisuke Kikuta.[1] Koi no Yokushiryoku/Love Deterrence is also the song that plays during the final battle between Big Boss and Pacifica Ocean/Metal Gear ZEKE.

A demo version was also found in the files of the game, which is similar, however, the lyrics are different most notably at the start and the middle of the verses, as well as the singer being different (not Nana Mizuki), due to it being probably a test version before the final version was recorded, additionally the vocals are slightly deeper and more echoed and there are long segments that are music only with different instruments as well.[2]

It is shown in the "Paz's Diary" Briefing files that it was actually Kazuhira Miller who wrote the song; Militaires Sans Frontières had organized a "Peace Day" in which the two would perform the song. Paz revealed she was in fact looking forward to performing it and had been practicing, but had to activate her plan three days before the performance.

"Koi no Yokushiryoku" can also be gotten from the PlayStation Network account on Peace Walker via a DLC content, in which it is included in the first set of DLC content. In addition to the regular composition, an acoustic guitar duet arrangement, titled "Koi no Yokushiryoku (Acoustic Guitar Duo)" was also put to DLC, also being the final one. It also had formerly been used for two DLC VOCALOID, one being for the song intro, and the other being the song's chorus. The acoustic guitar duo is played as part of the Peace Walker medley in the Metal Gear 25th Anniversary music collection.

The song also appears in Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, where parts of it can be heard on Chico's tapes, and is also one of the Mother Base medleys on the iDroid. A more somber, lyricless version can also be found as a cassette tape in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, specifically in the room right before Miller's holding area in Episode 1.

English translation (PV version)[edit]

<poem>I love you; I hope these thoughts reach you I'm sure one day it'll come true Such feelings are too painful

I don't understand things such as beginnings It seems like you could have an ordinary name and be anywhere But no matter how many people there are I'm sure to find you

I don't like the me who locked up these quiet feelings And confined herself in a shell Each time that I halfheartedly hold myself back The pain merely grows

What do you wish for? I want to be close to you Forever, forever that's all I want and yet…

(Thump thump…)

Love deterrence Look! It's the beginning of the game Look at these straightforward thoughts Now I'm overflowing and I start to run

I don't want to be alone any longer! Look at me!

Everything leads to you No matter the past or the future, forever And ever….

This encounter will change the world After school in the classroom Now just the two of us This is a chance given by God Time merely passes by

I'm sure that if this goes on We'll pass each other by With our backs facing each other We move apart

I love you; I hope these thoughts reach you I'm sure one day it'll come true Such feelings are too painful

Please stop… Love deterrence</poem>

<poem>I love you 届いてこの想い きっといつかは 叶うよね こんな気持ち せつなすぎるの

始まりなんてわからないの 名前も平凡で どこにでもいそう でも何万人いても私 きっとキミを見つけるよ

素直な キモチとじこめ 殻にこもった自分がイヤで 気のないフリするそのたびに ただ痛みが増えてく

キミは何を願うの? そばにいてほしい ずっと ずっとそれだけなのに (ドキドキ・・・)

恋の抑止力 ほらGameがはじまる 見つめあえばわかるでしょ? はじまりのベルが鳴る

Listen To My Heart 声にならないこの声 とめて 恋の抑止力 伝えたい 私のすべて

なにげに髪を切ったけれど 本当はキミのせいだなんて言えない 嘘ついて逃げてばかりで もう このままじゃだめだよ

ほかのひと わざと見ている そんな強がり 知らないままで すぐそばをすぎてく背中が 痛いほど遠く感じた

キミは誰を想うの? 教えてふたりは いつまで このまま続いてゆくの? (キュンキュン・・・)

恋の抑止力 ほらGameのはじまり 絡み合う想いはもう ほどけない 動き始めた

Listen To My Heart もっと素直になれたら とめて 恋の抑止力 心だけ そばにいるの

いつか言うの 「大好きだよ」 夢で言うの 「いつもごめん」 いつか言って ずっと一緒だって 離さないって ぎゅっとぎゅっとしてよ (ズキズキ・・・)

恋の抑止力 ほらGAMEのはじまり まっすぐな想いがほら いまあふれ走りだす ひとりなんてもうやだよ 見てよ私のこと 全部キミへとつながるの どんな過去も未来もずっと ずっと....

この出会いが 世界を変える 放課後クラスに 今はふたり 神様がくれたチャンスよ 時間はただ過ぎてゆく きっとこのまま ふたりは素通り 背中あわせで 離れていく・・・・

I love you 届いてこの想い きっといつかは叶うよね こんな気持ち 切なすぎるの お願いとめて・・・恋の抑止力</poem>
