Tenchi-Muyo!:
Taihou wa kaze makase
(Leave the arrest to the wind) ~ POLICE MAGIC

Posted By Samuel P Chong (raptor+@andrew.cmu.edu)

doko ni iru no chotto hannin-san
kakuretetara TAIHO dekinai ja nai

   Where did you go? Wait a minute, 
   Mr. Criminal.
   If you hide, I can't arrest you.

iya da wa hazureta MISAIRU de
machijuu anadarake ja nai
o-tsuki-sama ga kaketa no mo
watashi ga utta sei kashira

   Oh dear, because of my missiles 
   that missed, the whole city is 
   full of holes, isn't it. 
   The moon has waned, I wonder if 
   it's also because I shot it.

It's a POLICE MAGIC!
If you wanna see me,
You can whistle whenever you want!

   It's a POLICE MAGIC!
   If you wanna see me,
   You can whistle whenever you want!

shimatsusho ga taihen da wa
anata mo issho ni kaite ne

   A written apology, good heavens!
   Write it with me?

anata donna tsumi o okashita no ka
watashi jitsu wa yoku shiranai n dakedo

   What kind of crime did you commit?
   'Cause I really don't know very 
   well, but...

ii no yo tsumi ni dai mo shou mo
matsu mo take mo ume mo nai wa
o-sakana kuwaeta NEKO mo
issho ni oi-kakechau kara

   It's okay. The crime is not major 
   or minor not pine nor bamboo nor 
   plum [not worst nor worse nor bad]*.
   I'll also chase
   the cat with the fish in its mouth**.

It's a POLICE MAGIC!
If you gonna need me,
You can whistle whenever you want!

   It's a POLICE MAGIC!
   If you gonna need me,
   You can whistle whenever you want!

ara iya da tomaranai wa
oikoshichatta wa mattete ne

   What, oh dear, I can't stop.
   I've been overtaken. Wait up!

ara ara konna toko ni NEJI ga
hitotsu toreteru wa iya da wa
uchuu no heiwa no tame ni
watakushi kinmuchuu na no ni

   Well, well, a screw in a place like this.
   One came off, oh dear.
   Although I am on the job
   for the sake of interstellar peace...

O.K. POLICE MAGIC! If you wanna see me...

   O.K. POLICE MAGIC! If you wanna see me...

mi-ushitchatta wa...
kaze makase sagashi-dasu wa
uchuu ni kaze nado attakke?...

   I've lost sight of him.
   I'll leave it to the wind, to search 
   him out. A wind in space... is there 
   any such thing?...

POLICE MAGIC!
If you wanna see me,
You can whistle whenever you want!

   POLICE MAGIC!
   If you wanna see me,
   You can whistle whenever you want!

makasete ne watashi naraba
sugu kaiketsu yo ne yokatta ne

   If you leave it to me,
   I'll resolve it soon! All right!

* Things like meals in a restaurant are sometimes classified as pine, bamboo, and plum, where pine is the best (and most expensive).

** This is a parody of the first lines of the "Sazae-san" theme, "o-sakana kuwaeta DORA neko wo oi-kakete / HADASHI de kaketeku youki-na SAZAE-san" (Chasing a tiger-striped cat with a fish in its mouth, running barefoot, lively Sazae-san.)
