Hanamaru Youchien – Boku no Wasuremono

1 Comment

Tsuchida-sensei (Cv. Hino Satoshi), Hanamaru Youchien ED10, childhood memories

Oh my god… This song… ;_;

I should note that the original Japanese doesn’t explicitly refer to a girl – it simply uses “child” with no other pronouns to establish gender. The English simply sounds better when I assign a gender.

The Thing That I Forgot
Lyrics: Tadano Natsumi
Composition: NARASAKI
Arrangement: NARASAKI
Vocals: Tsuchida-sensei (Cv. Hino Satoshi)

I ride my bicycle along the side of the river
To deliver what that girl left behind.
While I was on my way over the hill, I turned around and noticed
The thing that I, myself, had forgotten.

I was supposed to run so far into the distance.
It’s not really a big thing; I’ll just try even harder.

That girl always treasured that thing so much.
I wonder if she feels downhearted.
It’s a heavy responsibility, even though its form is so small.
I’m in charge of an important thing.

I very much want to see her joyful face,
But she didn’t come back. I’ll hand it to her family.

Even though I’ve become an adult, I can’t graduate.
From now on, one more time, I’ll search for it at a run –
For the thing that I forgot.

Boku no Wasuremono
Lyrics: Tadano Natsumi
Composition: NARASAKI
Arrangement: NARASAKI
Vocals: Tsuchida-sensei (Cv. Hino Satoshi)

Kawa no hotori wo  jitensha de todokeru
Ano ko no  otoshimono
Saka no tochuu de  furimuki ki ga tsuita
Jibun ga  wasureta mono

Zuibun tooku made  hashitte ita hazu
Taishita koto nai  motto ganbarou

Itsumo ano ko ga  daiji ni shiteru mono
Shonbori shiteru kana
Sekinin juudai  chiisa na katachi demo
Omotai  azukarimono

Yorokobu hyoujou ga  tottemo mitai kedo
Kaettenakatta  kazoku ni watasou

Otona ni natta no ni   sotsugyou dekitenai
Kore kara mou ichido  sagashite hashirou
Boku no  wasuremono

僕の忘れもの
作詞:只野菜摘
作曲:NARASAKI
編曲:NARASAKI
歌:土田先生(Cv. 日野聡)

川のほとりを 自転車で届ける
あの子の 落しもの
坂の途中で ふりむき気がついた
自分が 忘れたもの

ずいぶん遠くまで 走っていたはず
たいしたことない もっとがんばろう

いつもあの子が だいじにしてるもの
しょんぼりしてるかな
責任重大 小さなかたちでも
おもたい あずかりもの

よろこぶ表情が とっても見たいけど
帰ってなかった 家族にわたそう

大人になったのに 卒業できてない
これからもう一度 さがして走ろう
僕の 忘れもの
