Toradora! – Ore ni Dekiru Koto

Takasu Ryuuji (CV: Majima Junji), Toradora! Character Song Album

Regardless of what anyone else might say, I personally thought that Toradora was good. I came to like all of the characters, which made this album very enjoyable for me.

I think this is my favorite character song on the album, along with Ami’s. (Out of all songs, I actually like the “Orange” remix the most.)

What I Can Do
Lyrics: Watanabe Akiko
Composition: SIMONSAYZ
Arrangement: KOHEI by SIMONSAYZ
Vocals: Takasu Ryuuji (CV: Majima Junji)

I want to do what I can –
What I can, for the sake of the ones I want to protect.

All people worry
And get tired as they live through their lives.

For example, if I’m told that it’s my youth, that’s unrelated.
Simply being a man, I want to be strong – ah…

More than the father I never met did,
I want to keep on supporting the people close to me.

As well as I can,
I don’t want to hurt anyone.

For example, if I’m told that I’m a hypocrite, that’s fine.
I want the strength to just go on through.

I buy only what I need
For this daily life with my friends.
I can’t decide the future –
Isn’t that right?

If I’m told that it’s my youth, that’s unrelated – yes.
Simply being a man, I want to be strong – ah…
If I’m told that I’m a hypocrite, that’s fine.
I want the strength to just go on through.

The things I can do
For the people I want to protect…

Ore ni Dekiru Koto
Lyrics: Watanabe Akiko
Composition: SIMONSAYZ

Dekiru koto wo shitai nda
Mamoritai hito no tame ni . . . dekiru koto wo

Sorezore daremo ga   nayandari
Tsukaretari shite ikite   iru naka de

Tatoe   wakasa da to   iwareyou to kankei nai
Shinpuru ni otoko toshite   chikara ga hoshii   ah

Au koto mo nai hito yori
Soba ni iru hito wo sasae   tsudzuketai

Narubeku dareka wo   ore kara wa
Kizutsuketari shitaku   nai ndayo

Tatoe   gizen da to   iwareyou to soredemo ii
Tsuranuite yukeru dake no   tsuyosa ga hoshii

Hitsuyou na mono dake wo kau
Seikatsu no you ni   tomodachi ya
Mirai wo kimetari dekinai
Sou daro?

Wakasa da to   iwareyou to kankei nai   yes
Shinpuru ni otoko toshite   chikara ga hoshii   ah
Gizen da to   iwareyou to soredemo ii
Tsuranuite yukeru dake no   tsuyosa ga hoshii

Ore ni dekiru koto wo
Mamoritai hito no tame ni

出来る事をしたいんだ
守りたい人の為に・・・出来る事を

それぞれ誰もが 悩んだり
疲れたりして生きて いる中で

例え 若さだと 言われようと関係ない
シンプルに男として 力が欲しい ah

会う事もない親父より
そばにいる人を支え 続けたい

なるべく誰かを 俺からは
傷つけたりしたく ないんだよ

例え 偽善だと 言われようとそれでもいい
貫いて行けるだけの 強さが欲しい

必要な物だけを買う
生活のように 友達や
未来を決めたり出来ない
そうだろ?

若さだと 言われようと関係ない yes
シンプルに男として 力が欲しい ah
偽善だと 言われようとそれでもいい
貫いて行けるだけの 強さが欲しい

俺に出来る事を
守りたい人の為に
