[Lyrics] Kuroko no Basuke OP2 & ED2

As promised, the opening of ending of the second season of Kuroko no Basuke. Well, not really a “second season”, but it went on for longer than one season, hence why I give it such a name. Do you like basketball? I actually don’t, since it’s so tiring and my physique doesn’t really help here. Regarding sports anime…Well, nesides Slam Dunk (remember those other songs I translated), you also have this more moe version called Ro-Kyu-Bu. I’d watch that instead, since I’m not that much of a serious guy when it comes to sports in general. I mean, I’m a professional bowler, but where do you find an anime of that “sport”?

Also, that guy in the picture looks kinda like me. Kinda.

But if I’m stuck despite going beyond the walls and reaching the checkpoints,

1人じゃない自覚を 届け

I have to make myself aware that I’m not alone.

We have to make a RIMFIRE

I don’t need your pitiful excuses!

Gotta dream 限界と war

Gotta dream to the limits and war.

立ちはだかるのは理解しすぎた常識と孤独の埋没
tachihadakaru no wa rikaishi sugita joushiki to kodoku no maibotsu
Confronted by this well known implantation called common sense and loneliness.

bring back the Catalyst “a simple way to best”

sometimes your voice reached to me
because I don’t want to face the fate

My heart is resonating to the past you gave up on.

錆びたスコアボードみたいに//君もここで震えてんだろう?
sabita SUKOABOODO mitai ni // kimi mo koko de furuetendarou?
Just like a rusty scoreboard. You’re shivering here as well, aren’t you?

とりあえずは迷いのない未来へ

For now, let us proceed to the future without hesitation.
