Kekkai Sensen (BUMP OF CHICKEN) – Hello,world!

BUMP OF CHICKEN, Kekkai Sensen OP

Don’t really know a way to update TV-size posts to full size in exactly the way I want, so I’m just going to make a new post. Also using WordPress’s new editor, just to shake things up.

My favorite anime opening of the season so far.

Hello,world!
Lyrics / Composition: Fujiwara Motoo
Arrangement: BUMP OF CHICKEN & MOR
Performance: BUMP OF CHICKEN

When the gates open, it’s a twisted midday night.
How did I get back yesterday? The only certainty is my body.
Good morning. From here, I’ll go back to being lost,
Going through this this familiar unknown landscape.

Just when I think it’s all over for me, it turns out I can do just fine,
Good enough to keep myself from dying – in a way, it’s kind of embarrassing.
Even if I forget what I have to do, I can figure it out,
Because if I don’t, it gets so painful for me.

Raise your head, you with the eyes of black.
It was because you saw it that the light was born.

Surrounded by a world painted in colors I chose,
Where can I find the meaning of the wounds I cannot choose?
I am my own story’s only hero, here in the center of the world,
Constantly on the stage, every scene until it ends.
What do I do? I can’t even pretend that I’m empty.

Hello, hey there, here I am.
Hello, hey there, here I am.

I’ve grown acquainted with this sensation – not a memory, but a different sort of thing,
Something closer to tears; I always feel its grip around my heart.
I can comprehend it perfectly well – I always have it with me –
Because if I don’t, I can’t see anything.

The strong people who live on, not letting their next breath be the last,
Have dragged motionless hearts along to where they are.

In my covered ears, I heard a melody like a rainbow.
My unbreakable emotions sing from within.
Even if I hide, I’m still the hero; there are things to protect.
I’m afraid because I’m all too aware of that.

When the gates open, it’s a twisted true lie.
Pretending to pretend that I’m empty – the only certainty is my body.

Good morning. Even now, we’re still in the continuation of the end.
Let’s shout from over there: hey there, here I am.

Now, open your eyes – you are strong.
It was because those eyes saw it that everything was born.

Surrounded by a world painted in colors I chose,
Where can I find the meaning of the wounds I cannot choose?
I am my own story’s only hero – there are things that I’ve protected;
I’m afraid because I know the value of that.

In my covered ears, I heard a melody like a rainbow.
My unbreakable emotions sing from within.
The hero let out a scream, there in the center of the world.
Constantly onstage until it ends – I’m watching it myself,
So there’s no point in pretending to be dead anymore.

Hello, hey there, here I am.
Hello, hey there, here I am.
Hello, hey there, here I am.
Hello, hey there, here I am.

Hello,world!
Lyrics / Composition: Fujiwara Motoo

Tobira hirakeba   nejireta hiru no yoru
Kinou dou yatte kaetta   karada dake ga tashika
Ohayou   kore kara mata maigo no tsudzuki
Minareta shiranai   keshiki no naka de

Mou dame tte omotte kara   wari to nandaka yarete iru
Shinikiranai kurai ni joubu   nanka chotto hazukashii
Yaru beki koto wa   wasurete ite mo wakaru
Sou shinai to   totemo kurushii kara

Kao wo agete   kuroi me no hito
Kimi ga mita kara   hikari wa umareta

Eranda iro de nutta   sekai ni kakomarete
Erabenai kizu no imi wa doko darou
Gojibun dake ga hiiroo   sekai no mannaka de
Owaru made dezuppari   suteeji no ue
Dou shiyou   karappo no furi mo dekinai

Hello   doumo   boku wa koko
Hello   doumo   boku wa koko

Oboete shimatta kankaku   omoide to wa chigau tagui
Motto namida no soba ni atte   itsumo shinzou tsukamarete ite
Juubun rikai dekiteru   zutto sore to issho
Sou ja nai to   nani mo mienai kara

Iki wo tsunagu   ikiru tsuyoi hito
Tomaru kokoro wo   hikizutte tsurete kita

Fusaida mimi de kiita   niji no you na merodii
Kudakenai omoi ga uchigawa de utau
Kakure itatte hiiroo   mamoru mono ga aru
Kowai no wa   sore hodo kidzuite iru kara

Tobira hirakeba   nejireta hontou no uso
Karappo no furi no furi   karada dake ga tashika

Ohayou   ima demo mada saigo no tsudzuki
Sakebou   soko kara   doumo   boku wa koko

Saa me wo akete   kimi wa tsuyoi hito
Sono me ga mita kara   subete wa umareta

Eranda iro de nutta   sekai ni kakomarete
Erabenai kizu no imi wa doko darou
Gojibun dake ga hiiroo   mamotta mono ga aru
Kowai no wa   sono kachi wo shitteru kara

Fusaida mimi de kiita   niji no you na merodii
Kudakenai omoi ga uchigawa de utau
Himei wo ageta hiiroo   sekai no mannaka de
Owaru made dezuppari   jibun ga mite iru
Dakara mou   shinda furi mo imi nai

Hello   doumo   boku wa koko
Hello   doumo   boku wa koko
Hello   doumo   boku wa koko
Hello   doumo   boku wa koko

Hello,world!
作詞・作曲:藤原基央
編曲:BUMP OF CHICKEN & MOR
歌:BUMP OF CHICKEN

扉開けば 捻れた昼の夜
昨日どうやって帰った 体だけが確か
おはよう これからまた迷子の続き
見慣れた知らない 景色の中で

もうダメと思ってから わりと何だかやれている
死にきらないくらいに丈夫 何かちょっと恥ずかしい
やるべきことは 忘れていても解る
そうしないと とても苦しいから

顔を上げて 黒い目の人
君が見たから 光は生まれた

選んだ色で塗った 世界に囲まれて
選べない傷の意味はどこだろう
ご自分だけがヒーロー 世界の真ん中で
終わるまで出突っ張り ステージの上
どうしよう 空っぽのふりも出来ない

ハロー どうも 僕はここ

覚えてしまった感覚 思い出とは違う類
もっと涙の側にあって いつも心臓掴まれていて
充分理解出来ている ずっとそれと一緒
そうじゃないと 何も見えないから

息を繋ぐ 生きる強い人
止まる心を 引き摺って連れてきた

塞いだ耳で聴いた 虹の様なメロディー
砕けない思いが内側で歌う
隠れていたってヒーロー 守るものがある
恐いのは それほど気付いているから

扉開けば 捻れた本当の嘘
空っぽのふりのふり 体だけが確か

おはよう 今でもまだ最後の続き
叫ぼう そこから どうも 僕はここ

さあ目を開けて 君は強い人
その目が見たから 全ては生まれた

選んだ色で塗った 世界に囲まれて
選べない傷の意味はどこだろう
ご自分だけがヒーロー 守ったものがある
恐いのは その価値を知っているから

塞いだ耳で聴いた 虹の様なメロディー
砕けない思いが内側で歌う
悲鳴をあげたヒーロー 世界の真ん中で
終わるまで出突っ張り 自分が見ている
だからもう 死んだふりも意味ない

ハロー どうも 僕はここ

  2. These Pingbacks are weird. They are certainly useful, but why do they count as comments?

    • Yeah, I don’t know, it’s just something WordPress does automatically. I guess it makes sense to me, since they’re probably intended for outside sites linking in, which could count as discussion.
