Default Summer Lights (AIR)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this song called "Natsu Kage"?

If that's the case, shouldn't it actually be called "Summer Shade" or "Summer Shadows"?

I've never been a fan of the 'officially' translated title either, but I guess they're allowed to call it what they want.

For another example, 虹 is called "prism", not "rainbow".

I think it just comes down to Jun Maeda and co. trying to make english sound poetic and evocative without actually understanding the language properly.

I read somewhere that they changed the name somewhere along the lines. It was Natsu Kage first and then changed to Summer Lights someplace else....can't remember >.<

AIR songs tend to have two names.

In the sound test of the PS2 version of Air, 夏影 is called Summer Lights.
