Kannagi OP lyrics

(Japanese/日本語)



Opening theme:
"Motto Hadenine" (TV Size)
by Haruka Tomatsu


Romaji:
Wakatte iru wa yo, deai no shunkan ni
Ase ga nijin da Babyface

Osaerarenai kodou, yase gaman de kakusu
Speed ihan no Driving

Datte, te wo nigire mo shinai kuse ni
Tsugatte "tsuitekoi"
Nande senobi darake no, anata ga suki

Madamada ji-mi-da-ne!
Kiss mo ji-mi-da-ne! (Fuwa-Fuwa)
Haki furushi no zubon nuide tobi konde kitara?

Sorede mo ji-mi-da-ne!
Honto no ko-i-da-ne! kizuite
Anata dake ni atsui Un-Deux-Trois misete ageru, sotto
Hard day's night game
Doroke sou......

Wakatte kita no yo, issho ni ita mono
Sunao ni narenai Shy boy

"Otoko rashiku" nande kuchiguse ni iu kedo
Drift tsuzukeru Lonliness

Datte, ano ko ni kimonai kuse ni
Omowasete burina mejakuse
Chotto koko ni iru janai, watashi wo mite

Madamada ji-mi-da-ne!
Nakami mo ji-mi-da-ne! (hara-hara)
Jibun dake no yume wo miru yori, issho ni odorou yo

Yappari ji-mi-da-ne!
Heart wa Crazy for me! Itsuka wa
Mune no oku de, amai haru ichiban fukiareruno, kitto
Magic nightmare
Shibire chau......

Gogo no kyoushitsu, daradara jigyou
Taikutsu na jumon, kokoro ga sawagu
Shoubu wa houkago, itsumono ano basho
Onegai, matteite, watashi no subete
Anata ni sasageruwa
Kami-sama mimamotte, For you

Madamada ji-mi-da-ne!
Kiss mo ji-mi-da-ne! (Fuwa-Fuwa)
Hakifurushino zubon nuide tobikonde kitara?

Soredemo ji-mi-da-ne!
Honto no ko-i-da-ne! Kizuite
Konya dake wa, futari Un-Deux-Trois kasanari au, motto
Ha-de-ni-ne!
Dakishimete......

English:
I already knew, ever since the moment we met
I had a sweat filled Babyface.

While hiding my uncontrollable heartbeat and my wild endurance,
I break the speed limit while Driving.

Well, it’s because I can’t even grip your hand and yet
I’m able to strongly say “Come here!”
How is it that I love your growing figure?

It’s still too plain!
My kiss too is plain! (Light and Airy)
What if I took off my worn of shoes and pants and jumped in?

Bet even so it’s still too plain!
It’s true love right? I realized...
Just to you, I’ll gently show my hot 1 2 3...
Hard day’s night game
I’m mesmerized...


I’ve come to understand the person with me
can’t be honest...such a Shy boy

Although your favorite phrase is “Like a Man!”,
you continue to drift into Loneliness.

I shouldn’t pay attention to that girl but
she gives you suggestive winks...
Hey, I’m right here aren’t I? Look at me.

It’s still too plain!
My interior is still to plain! (Heart beats)
Rather than just seeing my own dreams...lets dance together!

I knew it, it’s still too plain!
Your heart is Crazy for me! Someday,
I’m sure the sweet spring deep in my heart will blow away my
Magic nightmare
I’m getting numb...

The afternoon classroom and the long lecture,
this boring charm makes a riot out of my heart.
The match will be after school at the usual spot.
Please wait for me, me and my everything.
To you, I’ll offer
a god watching over you...just for you.

It’s still too plain!
My kiss too is plain! (Light and Airy)
What if I took off my worn of shoes and pants and jumped in?

Bet even so it’s still too plain!
It’s true love right? I realized…
Just for this night, our 1 2 3 will overlap each other…
It’s too gaudy right!
Hold me...

Toradora! OP/ED lyrics

(Japanese/日本語)

Opening theme:
"Pre-Parade" (プレパレード)
by Rie Kugimiya, Yui Horie, Eri Okamura

Romaji:
pure purepara-to tsuyoku nanka nai
pure purepare-do itsuka kimi wo tsukamaeru

yudan shitara sono yubi chiku chiku atakku kakugo shite
chiisai kedo hasamuno mijinnko mitai na anata

English:
Pre-Preparation. Even though I'm not strong at all.
Pre-Pre parade. Some day I will catch you.

If you let your guard down, there'll be a tickling attack. Prepare yourself.
You're small, but fit in, you who are as small as a water flea.

What we wanted was a plastic heart. (Plus! Plus! But then, minus!)
But there were those that noticed it was too boring!

Love is a sweet and bitter thing.
It's plain and simple, complicated and mysterious.
If you keep worrying about useless things, how will it feel? It'll feel like that!

You who are gentle and sincere, yet eccentric,
put up a fight by pretending like you're tough with your whole being.

The impact from being honestly excited will send you dizzy spells.
You hurt someone, you've been hurt.
In your head (Always on your own)
A naive pre-parade.

Ending Theme:
"Vanilla Salt" (バニラソルト)
by Yui Horie

Romaji:

amai vanilla ni salt kakeru youni

English:
A salty vanilla... Vanilla...
Let's put salt on it if it's too sweet.

I expose myself to anyone since I want you to understand me more and more.
But that doesn't work since I have no experience. This is just too irritating!

But a love that's only sweet is a bit different from what I'm looking for.

When you tell me white I reply with black.
I just can't be honest, and I'm always contradicting myself.

When you tell me that you love me, I shout I hate you!
I'm happy, yet what am I saying?

It's like putting salt on sweet vanilla.

Clannad: After (Episode 1)

Was changing the "Meg Mell" theme was to change how it would look like? I thought the conclusion was to worry about it. New series based on their own staff to provide me with a lot. Opening Galgle style did not change.

The school chapter, appeared only for a while. (When will Ushiho make an appearence?) In this section, Tomoya walks in a Flower garden in someone else's dream scenes recollections from the past. It is Tomoya's baseball that he and Nagisa became lovers that starts being acknowledged by their family and friends. It is a life quality in autumn. Tsute of the academy relies on Nagisa to find baseball players.

Matome Nakere have a story to say there may be, but Restraints on the original Kurabe guys to really be simply meet members of amateur baseball. However, Fuko did not participate. Nobody was favored by the minute, after almost no chance of it.

The part where Sunohara sexually harasses Tomoyo has a nice combo attack (lol). Sandlot baseball game, were injured back in autumn to the beach or go to the mound, no good Toco, Sunohara or superbrain pitches, and calculates the course and hit a Kotomi, the sadness of Tomoyo and the various ingredients for me to pick up Enjoyed it, but, after starting with Yusuke, Yusuke has hit all go to the theater feeling. Last time, two-out bases-loaded at-bats are coming around to the shoulder injury for Tomoya in a small way, but Nagina acheived a full swing. As Tomoya tries to hit the ball, he saw a light from another world that depicted ball of light and shadow, signifying the future development in the air.

In the following episode Sunohara tries to find someone to marry (lol).

Clannad: Tomoyo chapter (episode 24)

日本語

7 June 2008:


This episode is an alternate world of CLANNAD, where Tomoya and Tomoyo are going out with each other. The setting is the voting day for the student council election, where president candidate Tomoyo is set out on protecting the school greenery. As with each morning, Tomoya is woken up by Tomoyo, where the usual opening sequence starts.

At school, the results of the vote is announced over the PA system, where Tomoyo has been officially named president elect. With her responsibilities ahead of her, Tomoyo can no longer find time to spend her lunch break with Tomoya and Sunohara in their classroom, although she continues to make their lunch box.
However, Tomoyo inadvertently abuses her new-found authority over the PA system, telling Tomoya not to wait for her, setting off a controversy. One of Tomoyo's immediate duties is to prepare for the School Festival, as she is bombarded with work over the course of several days, where she is unable to make time to meet Tomoya. She attempts a secret rendevous by masquerading in her bear outfit, but she is found by a second year student council officer, who later gets into a skirmish with Tomoya, demanding him to break up with Tomoyo, for the sake of keeping her credibility as a president.

One day, one of the school alumnus who agreed to cooperative on preserving the cherry trees, witnessed Tomoyo coming out of Tomoya's house on the morning of a school day, and notifies the student council. The faculty express dismay over such actions, and compounded with the two's history for misbehavior, pressure Tomoya into distancing himself from Tomoyo.

Tomoya decides to break up with Tomoyo, but she doesn't buy his story, saying she's fine with the situation. Tomoyo finally gives in to Tomoya's persuasion, where they break up and head their own ways. Tomoyo not only goes about executing her duties as president, she excels in her academics, placing fourth in the school, prompting talks of overseas study as an exchange student. She's even depicted showcasing her skills at an English speech contest.

The ending credits appear as both Tomoya and Tomoyo receive their diplomas during graduation convocation. Tomoya finds employment at a local company while Tomoyo seeks higher education at the big city. Time flies, where it is already winter. With Lia's "Ana" in the background, Tomoya and Tomoyo meet each other on a snowy day. Tomoya confesses that he's a nobody who's stuck in town for the rest of his life, and doesn't deserve someone like Tomoyo, who can be successful anywhere in the world. Tomoyo digresses, saying only that if Tomoya wants her to stay, she'll be more than happy to oblige. Tomoyo cries in Tomoya's arms, where the story comes to and end.

True Tears episode 1

[日本語 (Japanese)]

Nakagami Shinichirou, who wants to be a picture book author, is working on a story with the theme of tears. He’s frustrated because he wants to draw gentler pictures than he has done. When he heads downstairs, he finds Yuasa Hiromi working at a computer. Shinichirou has feelings for her. After dinner, he returns to his story and writes about collecting a person’s tears to make a necklace and decorate a tree. In his mind, Shinichirou develops an image of a girl standing under a giant tree. He then starts drawing. At school the next day, he watches Hiromi during gym class and gets teased by his friend Nobuse about it. After changing, Shinichirou hears a girl singing and traces the sound to a girl standing atop a tree branch by the school courtyard. As he stands there stunned by the view of her against the sunlight, the girl notices him and angers him by telling him not to look at her without asking. However, when he turns to walk away, she stops him and jumps on top of him.

As it turns out, the girl was there to get berries to feed the school’s two chickens. She feels that the chickens want to fly, and since they’re caged up, she wanted to give them a meal from a high place. The girl then compares how one of the chickens doesn’t try to fly to what she thinks are Shinichirou’s own problems flying, and he responds by ridiculing her flying analogy by saying that her head is light with air. This causes the girl to get angry, and she walks off after wishing unhappiness onto him. Shinichirou learns from Nobuse later that the girl is Isurugi Noe. Returning home, Shinichirou pays a visit to the family brewery where his father is too busy at work to talk with him. He remembers how Hiromi came to live with them after her father - who was his own father’s acquaintance - had died. Shinichirou had been in the same class as her since elementary school, and since she was always cheerful, he had been worried about her smile. As Shinichirou is thinking about this, Hiromi comes home, and the way she simply greets him before heading inside reminds him of the unhappiness that Noe had wished onto him.

That night, Shinichirou heads to his friend Andou Aiko’s home to practice a traditional dance before heading to her family’s imagawayaki store, and when he voices his frustration through a loud sigh, Aiko warns him that sighing will lead to unhappiness. She is concerned about him, but Shinichirou leaves as soon as Nobuse stops by the store. Back at home, Shinichirou notices that he smells bad, so he decides to take a bath. As he enters the bathroom, he found that Hiromi is already in the bathroom as she was changing. He rushes back out when he sees her, but to his surprise, it’s Hiromi who apologizes to him. Shinichirou thinks to himself that the normal reaction would have been screaming and calling him a pervert, and he’s frustrated at how she apologized. He ends up channeling this energy into making a chicken out of a box of tissues. The next morning, Shinichirou is sitting down to eat breakfast with Hiromi and his father when his mother walks in with a letter from a Tokyo publisher. She wants to know what he’s been hiding, but Shinichirou storms out without answering after grabbing the letter. Despite his mother’s protests, his father thinks that Shinichirou is his own person and doesn’t have to follow the family business.

The letter from the publisher turns out to be a rejection, and it once again reminds Shinichirou of the unhappiness Noe wished onto him. To get rid of this curse, he finds Noe, who is again up in the tree, and offers her a gift to take back what she said. She loves the chicken-shaped tissue box that he gives her and thinks that he can fly now. Afterwards, they head to the chicken pen. When they get there, they find the front of it broken open from what appears to have been a tanuki attack. Only the white chicken who can’t fly remains alive, and there’s blood on the ground, yet Noe feels that the black chicken flew away. Shinichirou thinks that she’s going to cry, but to his surprise, she doesn’t shed any tears despite how sad she sounds. As they walk together past the waterfront, Shinichirou comments on how strong she is, so Noe admits that she’s really sad, and the truth is that she’s unable to cry.

What is this?

[日本語 (Japanese)]



(Anime: H2O: Footprints in the Sand Episode 3)

I have no idea...
