Ignore the incorrect and incomplete Amazon title for this item. The correct title is Fukisusabu Kaze No Naka De Single by WAG. You can find out more information about this music album below

 

The full title of this music album is Saiyuki Reload Ending Theme Song Fukisusabu Kaze No Naka De Single by WAG.

Unfortunately, this full title would have been too long to fit above so it had to be shortened.

This music album would have been commonly known as simply Fukisusabu Kaze No Naka De Single by WAG anyway.

The song "Fukisusabu Kaze No Naka De" is actually the second ending song from the anime Saiyuki Reload.

There is actually a lot of confusion as to the correct name of this music album, which is also the name of one of the songs that appears in this single.

What's the real and proper title of this music album?

While a lot of the sites out there that have information on this music album and the song from which the album title came from, entitle said song and album as "Fukisusabu Kaze No Naka De", there are some sites that do not use this exact title.

It could be a mistake in the labeling and titling of this song and album.

For example, Amazon calls this music album as "Fukisusabu Kazeno Nakade". On the other hand, jpopasia.com calls this album as "Sukisusabu Kaze No Naka De". These mistakes certainly don't make it easy to locate this music album, which is hard enough to find as it is.

You can hear the song Fukisusabu Kaze No Naka De by WAG by watching episodes from the Saiyuki Reload anime. It's actually the second ending theme of said anime.

The cover of this DVD features Genjo Sanzo, the monk and leader of the Sanzo-ikkou

 

Information about this music album by WAG is pretty scarce and part of it may be due to the differences in how the album is entitled.

After all, those who know the music album as "Fukisusabu Kaze No Naka De" might not think of searching for it by any other title.

Another reason for the seeming scarcity of any information about this album could also be because this single isn't all that well-known.

In fact, the only reason people might have heard of this album would probably be because of having heard "Fukisusabu Kaze No Naka De" when watching the Saiyuki Reload anime.

And this is also why there's much more information about this particular song as compared to the other songs in this album.

For some reason, the music album Fukisusabu Kaze No Naka De Single by WAG from Amazon.com refuses to show up, even though there is a price listed. So, instead, here is a link to the item in question:

(leaving the Amazon capsule up though, in case the item shows up. You can see an image of the product above)

This music album contains 4 tracks. But only 3 are songs. The last track is merely the instrumental version of one of the songs.

All the songs in this album were sung by WAG.

Here is the track list for this album:

  1. Fukisusabu Kaze No Naka De (吹きすさぶ風の中で)
  2. Story
  3. Reagan
  4. Fukisusabu Kaze No Naka De (吹きすさぶ風の中で) - this is the instrumental version

The Japanese characters beside "Fukisusabu Kaze No Naka De" are from Amazon Japan. The other 2 songs don't have Japanese characters beside them because they are English titles. The track list from this album was obtained from both nautiljon.com and Amazon Japan.

Fukisusabu Kaze No Naka De by WAG (Full Version)

TV Size Version

1. Fukisusabu Kaze No Naka De

As mentioned above, this song is actually the second ending song from Saiyuki Reload.

The TV size version of this song appears in the music album Saiyuki Reload & Saiyuki Reload Gunlock TV Sound Collection.

This song has a nice beat to it that also sounds rather serious but not entirely so. The tune is catchy and the voice of WAG really fits the song.

Inside the raging wind, will you be able to abandon this pride?

The title of the song is translated by holdthelight.net as "Inside The Raging Wind" while using Google Translate on Amazon Japan translates 吹きすさぶ風の中で (these are the Japanese characters for the romaji song title "Fukisusabu Kaze No Naka De) as "In The Blustery Wind Of".

The former sounds much better though the titles seem similar in terms of including the word "wind".

The translated lyrics of this song has much meaning to it with words and phrases like 'chatting without words or a single word', 'it isn't that we repent no matter which day', 'the color of regret and truth', and 'hiding despair'.

You can't deceive yourself anymore

— Fukisusabu Kaze No Naka De (English translated lyrics)

Saiyuki Reload is the sequel to the anime Gensomaden Saiyuki

The song seems to be speaking of the Sanzo-ikkou and their respective dark and tragic pasts.

Even now, in the present, each of the 4 are still being haunted by the demons of their pasts and their regrets and perceived weaknesses.

For instance, Hakkai's lover, who was abducted by demons, ended up offing herself right in front of him.

Goku used to be imprisoned in a cave for a very long time where he was all alone.

Gojyo was shunned by many people for being a hanyou (half-breed, half-human and half-demon) as they believed that hanyou bring bad luck and are cursed.

Sanzo's mentor and father-figure was destroyed right in front of him when he was but a young child.

When morning comes, time will change

This is how Son Goku looks like. He's one of the main characters in the Saiyuki series. He's very strong and powerful even though he looks so young.

 

However, in spite of all the pain and suffering that the Sanzo-ikkou have endured, they have not given up.

They still continue to move forward, remaining strong and steadfast in the face of whatever obstacle may stand in their way.

Note:

2. Story

This song by WAG doesn't really appear in any of the Saiyuki series.

This is merely a song that is included in this music album. No lyrics for this song could be located.

Part of the difficulty of finding any information on this song might have to do with its title.

It's a pretty common word so doing a search on this is likely to give you many unrelated results.

The name of the artist, WAG, also adds to that difficulty, considering the English word it pertains to.

The song sounds rather solemn and serious and this is reflected in the tone of the song, the voice of WAG and the instrumental music.

There's a bit of an instrumental at the beginning before the song starts and this sets the rather sad tone of the song.

The other song by WAG

No information on the song "Reagan" by WAG could be found whether in terms of lyrics or a sample video.

This song isn't really part of the Saiyuki series.

Just like with the song "Story", this song is also just another song that's part of this music album single by WAG.

The cover of this anime DVD features Cho Hakkai, one of the 4 main characters of the Saiyuki series. He's mild-mannered and kind, but don't piss him off or you'll regret it

 

Aside from the name of the artist, another difficulty in finding anything about this song may also be due to its title.

"Reagan" is most commonly associated with Ronald Reagan, which isn't helping you if you're trying to find information on the song by WAG.
