Title: Ano Hi Time Machine / あの日タイムマシン / That day, time machine
Artist: Long Shot Party
Zoku Natsume Yuujinchou / 続 夏目友人帳 Opening Theme

hashiri dase mae wo muite
kajikamu te de sora ni egaita
kimi no mirai ni shukufuku no akari tomosu
kiri hirake sono te de
kikoeteru kai? kono koe ga
sunao ni waraeru koto dakishime
ima hashiri dase

Start running, look forward!
With numb hands, I drew in the sky
The light of blessing shines on your future
Cut through it with your hands
Can you hear my voice?
I hold onto the fact I’m able to laugh honestly
Start running now!

sukoshi dake otona no iro ni somaru yubisaki
terekusasou ni sotto kakushite
hoozue tsuita kimi mitsumeteru shisen no saki ni
chiisana tsubomi ga yura yura

My fingertips, dyed a mature colour
Embarrassed, I secretly hid them
You were resting your chin on your hands,
at the end of your glance,
a small bud was shaking

ne boku nante zutto mayoi bakari de
ano hi okutta kotoba ima sara omoi dasu

Hey
I’m always hesitating
I remember those words I said only now

hashiri dase mae wo muite
kajikamu te de sora ni egaita
kimi no mirai ni shukufuku no akari tomosu
kiri hirake sono te de
kikoeteru kai? kono koe ga
sunao ni waraeru koto dakishime
ima hashiri dase

Start running, look forward!
With numb hands, I drew in the sky
The light of blessing shines on your future
Cut through it with your hands
Can you hear my voice?
I hold onto the fact I’m able to laugh honestly
Start running now!

“mukashi wa yokatta” nante iitaku wa nain da keredo
torikaeshitai omoi mo arun da
boku no senaka wo osu minagiru shisen no boku wo
mebuita tsubomi ni kasanete

I don’t want to say things like “The old days were good”,
but there are memories I want to get back too
The myself that pushes me from behind fills my vision,
overlapping with growing buds

toki wo koete mata itsuka
ano hi wo hokoreru you ni
hidari mawari no tokei mou hitotsu motte iku yo
kiri hirake sono te de
waraeteru kai? jibun rashiku
yuzurenai omoi nigiri shimete
ima hashiri dase

I’ll overcome time, so that someday I can
be proud of that day again
I’ll carry an anticlockwise clock too
Cut through it with your hands
Are you laughing? That’s just like you
I hold onto the feelings I can’t give up
Start running now!

ne boku nante ima mo mayoi bakari de
ano hi okutta kotoba ima sara omoi dasu

Hey
Even now I’m always hesitating
I remember those words I said only now

kimi iro ni mirai somete

Dye the future your colour

hashiri dase mae wo muite
kajikamu te de sora ni egaita
kimi no mirai ni shukufuku no akari tomosu
kiri hirake sono te de
kikoeteru kai? kono koe ga
sunao ni waraeru koto dakishime
ima hashiri dase

Start running, look forward!
With numb hands, I drew in the sky
The light of blessing shines on your future
Cut through it with your hands
Can you hear my voice?
I hold onto the fact I’m able to laugh honestly
Start running now!

toki wo koete mata itsuka
ano hi wo hokoreru you ni
hidari mawari no tokei mou hitotsu motte iku yo
kiri hirake sono te de
waraeteru kai? jibun rashiku
yuzurenai omoi nigiri shimete
ima hashiri dase

I’ll overcome time, so that someday I can
be proud of that day again
I’ll carry an anticlockwise clock too
Cut through it with your hands
Are you laughing? That’s just like you
I hold onto the feelings I can’t give up

Title: Aishiteru / 愛してる / I love you
Zoku Natsume Yuujinchou / 続 夏目友人帳 Ending Theme

ne, mou sukoshi dake
mou sukoshi dake, kiiteite hoshii
ne, mou sukoshi dake
mou sukoshi dake wagamama ii desu ka

Hey, just a little longer
Hey, I want you to listen for a little longer
Hey, just a little more
Is it okay to be a little more selfish?

te ni ireta totan ni,
kiete shimai sou kotoba wo kuremasen ka

Will you give me those words
that were about to disappear the moment I heard them?

aishiteiru, aishiteiru
sekai ga owaru made
bakageteru to warai nagara
kuchi ni dashite mite
aishiteiru, sonna koto ga kantan ni wa dekinakute
umaku aiseru you ni to, ano sora ni inotteiru

I love you, I love you
Until the end of the world
I was being silly, while laughing I tried to say it
Loving you, that’s not something I can do so easily
I’m praying to the sky so that I can love you properly

ne, shiratakutemo shiritsukusenai koto bakari de
dakara, hitotsu ni naranai
futatsu no karada wo sei ippai dakishimeta

Hey, there are many things I want to know, but can’t know completely
So, we can’t become one
The two of us embraced closely

anata ga iru, sore dake demo, sekai ga kawatte shimau
monotone no keshiki ga hora, azayaka ni utsuru

Just because you’re here, the world will change
Look, the monotone landscape will become colourful

itsu no ma ni ka
hanareteita te wo tsunaide, aruiteiku
umaku aiseteiru ka na, ano sora ni kiite miru no

I’ll start walking, holding the the hand which I let go of unknowingly
Will I able to be love you properly?
I’ll try asking that sky

itsuka hanare banare ni naru hi ga kitemo,
anata wo omotta hibi ga areba, sore de ii
itsuka hanareta imi wo shiru hi ga kuru you

Even if a day comes when we’re separated,
it’ll be okay if the days when I thought of you remain
Someday, there’ll be a day when I understand the meaning of our separation

yakusoku suru kara
ashita he

I promise
To tomorrow

aishiteiru, aishiteiru
sekai ga owaru made
bakageteru to warai nagara, kuchi ni dashite mite
aishiteiru, sonna koto ga kantan ni wa dekinakute

I love you, I love you
Until the end of the world
I was being silly, while laughing I tried to say it
Loving you, that’s not something I can do so easily

umaku aiseru you ni to, ano sora ni inotteiru
ano sora ni inotteiru

I’m praying to the sky so that I can love you properly
I’m praying to the sky

Kousuke Atari – Natsu Yuuzora

Posted by Saki on January 25, 2009

Title: Natsu Yuuzora / 夏夕空
Artist: Kousuke Atari / 中孝介

Natsume Yuujinchou / 夏目友人帳 Ending Theme

I love this song, the words are really beautiful. It goes so well with Natsume Yuujinchou too~

irozuku nishizora ni
sashikomu hitosuji no hi
yuudachi no ame agari ni
kizuku natsu no nioi

The western sky, changing in colour
A single beam of sunlight shines in
After the evening rain
I recognise the fragrance of summer

hishimeku hikari ga terasu
omoi ni mimi wo sumaseba
kikoeshi tomo no omokage

The colliding beams of light shine
If I listen carefully to my thoughts,
I can hear the traces of my friend

natsu yuuzora kaori datsu
azayaka na sugisarishi hibi
kokoro no mama warai atta
ano natsu no omoide yo

The summer evening sun gives off a fragrant scent
The vivid days that have gone by
Guided by our hearts, we laughed together
The memories of that summer

irozuku hoozuki ni
nigiwaishi natsu matsuri
nari hibiku suzu no ne ni
mune no oku ga yureru

The winter cherry, changing in colour
A crowded summer festival
At the sound of the echoing wind chimes,
my heart sways

sazameku higurashi ga naku
kodachi wo hitori arukeba
yomigaeshi hi no omokage

The noisy cicadas cry
When I walk through the trees alone,
I can recall the traces of those days

sotto boku no
mimi moto de sasayaita
natsukashii hibi
ano no koro mama kawarazu
ima mo kokoro no naka de

They whispered softly
close to my ears
Those nostalgic days
Unchanging from that time,
even now, within my heart

hito toshite mamoru mono
hito toshite manabu koto
naki sofu ga tsumugu
taisetsu na kotoba wa kono mune ni

Something I protect as a person
Something I learn as a person
My late grandfather imprinted
these important words in my heart

natsu yuuzora kaori datsu
azayaka na sugisarishi hibi
ano koro no mama kawaranu
shimi wataru nukumori yo

The summer evening sun gives off a fragrant scent
The vivid days that have gone by
Unchanged from that time
The spreading warmth

ano natsu no omoide yo

The memories of that summer

Shuuhei Kita – Issei no Sei

Posted by Saki on January 16, 2009

Title: Issei no Sei / 一斉の声
Artist: Kita Shuuhei / 喜多修平

Natsume Yuujinchou / 夏目友人帳 Opening Theme

mata sonna kao shite kuchibiru kami shimete yowasa wo kakushiteru kedo
sono hitomi no oku uzukumaru kimi ga hontou no kokoro nara

You’re making that face again, you bite your lip, hiding your weakness but
if the you that cowers within these eyes is your real heart, then…

omotte naite hitori de fuan de nande itai no mottenda
boku ni sotto azukete yo

Thinking, crying, alone, worried, why are you carrying this pain?
Give some of it to me in secret

sugu ja muri to omou no naraba sukoshi zutsu de ii
tsubasa no nai bokura kitto tobenai to kime tsuketeru dake
koe no kagiri kimi wo yobu yo mayowanai you ni
fuwari kokoro mai agare ano kaze ni nosete issei no se

If you think doing something right away is impossible, then little by little is okay
The reason we don’t have wings is only because we’ve decided we can’t fly
I’ll call you as loud as as I can, so that you don’t lose your way
Your heart gently soars, ride on that wind, simultaneous voice

todokanai nante kime tsukeru koto de kizutsuku koto kara nigetemo
sono nigiri shimeta te no hira no naka de yuragu omoi kakusenai

Deciding that you can’t reach, even if you run from what hurts you,
you can’t hide those swaying feelings in your clenched fist

nagetenai de hitori de inai de sonde itai no tonde ike
ima yori chotto asu he ikou yo

Don’t lament, you’re not alone, that pain will disappear
Let’s get closer to tomorrow than we are now

hitori ja muri na koto mo tabun sa kaerareru ka na
tsubasa no nai kawari ni bokura doko mademo omoi tobaseru yo
koe no kagiri kimi ni utau yo wasurenai you ni
tatoe tooku hanaretemo ano sora ni mukete issei no se

There are probably things that are impossible alone, can this change?
Although we have no wings, we can reach anywhere just by thinking
I sing to you as loud as I can, so you won’t forget
Even if we’re far apart, there’s a simultaneous voice aimed towards the sky

mayotte eranda no michi no saki de mata mayou no nara
mi agereba mabushii sora ni ikusen no koe ga hibiteru yo

If, at the end of the path you chose when you were lost, you become lost again,
look up at the dazzling sky and thousands of voices will resound

sugu ja muri to omou no naraba sukoshi zutsu de ii
tsubasa no nai bokura wa kitto tobenai to kime tsuketeru dake
koe no kagiri kimi wo yobu yo mayowanai you ni
fuwari kokoro mai agare ano kaze ni nosete issei no se

If you think doing something right away is impossible, then little by little is okay
The reason we don’t have wings is only because we’ve decided we can’t fly
I’ll call you as loud as as I can, so that you don’t lose your way
Your heart gently soars, ride on that wind, simultaneous voice
