Maon Kurosaki, PSP To Aru Majutsu no Index OP, Magic∞world

This song has Touma written all over it.

As with “Magic world”, there are alternate readings, but they were generally easier to work into the translation here.

Notes follow the translation.

ANSWER
Lyrics: Maon Kurosaki
Music & Arrangement: Maiko Iuchi
Vocals: Maon Kurosaki

I continued to wander along
A maze that had no end.
I wonder where the time that was stopped
Will go from here.

The crimson sky I looked up at
Was a new dimension of empty space.
The despair that appeared
Was my own shadow.

If all you do is watch,
You’ll just lose it.
Nothing will begin.
Fighting is necessary.

I’ve got to try to find the ANSWER,
cause I wanna be myself and keep on fighting.
Even any sort of darkness
Holds some meaning,
So everything is fated to happen.

“The answer” is always
Something you create for yourself.
I won’t give up again
So that I won’t lose to my own shadow.

Stepping inside my heart,
Even if I’m eroded,
I have no path to choose
But to “move forward.”

The barrier of excuses
That we use to run away
From the things we don’t want –
Delete and reset them all!

Don’t ever give up and find the ANSWER.
If you lose something, then get another.
I can turn my unwavering feelings
Into power,
Even at Level 0.

If everyone is living
In search of “the answer,”
I won’t run away again
Until this heart of mine finds it.

Even if you create
A false form for yourself,
That is not “strength.”

Don’t ever give up and find the ANSWER.
If you lose something, then get another.
At the place of arrival,
No matter how many times you’ve lost your way,
There is one “answer.”

I’ve got to try to find the ANSWER,
cause I wanna be myself and keep on fighting.
Even any sort of darkness
Holds some meaning,
So everything is fated to happen.

“The answer” is always
Something you create for yourself.
I won’t give up again.
I won’t lose to my own shadow anymore!

ANSWER
Lyrics:黒崎真音
Music&Arrangement:井内舞子
歌:黒崎真音

終わりの無い迷路を
彷徨い続けた
停止した時間は
何処へ向かうのだろう

見上げた紅い空は
空虚な異次元
現れた絶望は
自分自身の影

見ているだけじゃ
失うだけ
何も始まらない
闘いは不可欠

I got to try to find the ANSWER.
cause wanna be myself keep on fighting.
どんな暗闇だって
意味を持っているから
全て必然

「結論」はいつだって
自ら作り上げるモノ
僕は二度と 諦めない
自分の影に負けないように

ココロに入り込んで
侵食されても
選択の行方は
「進む」以外は無い

嫌なモノから
逃れる為の
言い訳の結界
全て抹消して

Don’t ever give up and find the ANSWER.
If lose something then get another.
揺らぐ事無い想い
チカラに変えていける
レベル0でも

「結論」を誰もが
探し求め生きてるなら
僕は二度と 逃げはしない
この胸に解る その時まで

偽りの姿
創り上げても
それは「強さ」じゃない

Don’t ever give up and find the ANSWER.
If lose something then get another.
行き着く先で何度
路に迷ったとしても
「結論」は一つ

I got to try to find the ANSWER.
cause wanna be myself keep on fighting.
どんな暗闇だって
意味を持っているから
全て必然

「結論」はいつだって
自ら作り上げるモノ
僕は二度と 諦めない
自分の影に もう負けない!
