Shounen Jump Song

I am legit weak for RADWIMPS songs with just the piano and vocals. (Especially Breath, my goodness, that song should be illegal.) Anyway, here’s the Shounen Jump Song from the Ningen Kaika album. I got the kanji from Lyrical Nonsense!


Weekly Shounen Jump by RADWIMPS

週刊少年ジャンプ
的な未来を
夢みていたよ
君のピンチも
僕のチャンスと
待ち構えていたよ

shuukan shounen janpu
teki na mirai wo
yumemiteita yo
kimi no pinchi mo
boku no chansu to
machikamaeteita yo

I’ve always dreamt about a future situation
That would totally be just like
A Weekly Shounen Jump issue
Where I’d be looking out for you
And the moment you’d get in trouble
That would finally be my chance to rescue you

毎晩少年ジャンプ
的な夢で忙しくてさ
汗まみれで朝起きるたび
命カラガラでママに「おはよう」

maiban shounen janpu
teki na yume de isogashikute sa
ase mamire de asa okiru tabi
inochi karagara de mama ni ‘ohayou’

Every night, that Shounen Jump dream
Would keep me really busy to the point that
I’d be drenched in sweat when I wake up in the morning
Barely alive after hearing my mom’s “Good morning!”

机は窓際君のとなり
遅刻と罰掃除と居眠り
だってヒーローはそうじゃなくちゃって

tsukue wa madogiwa kimi no tonari
chikoku to bachi souji to inemuri
datte hiiroo wa sou ja naku chatte

A desk by the window, just beside yours
Owned by someone always punished for being late
Always made to clean after class for sleeping
That’s just something heroes do, ya know?

キザでキラキラした台詞も
使う予定なんかはないけど
ちゃんと毎晩お風呂で
こっそり唱えるよ

kiza de kirakira shita serifu mo
tsukau yotei nanka wa nai kedo
chanto maiban ofuro de kossori
tonaeru yo

I don’t really plan to use
All those smug lines to show off
But I still secretly practice them
In the shower every night anyway

未来のヒロインに
いつか渡すために
誰一人内緒で
育てるんだよ

mirai no hiroin ni
itsuka watasu tame ni
dare hitori ni naisho de
sodaterun da yo

When the right time comes,
I can finally entrust my future heroine
Something that I’ve been taking care of
That I’ve been keeping to myself for so long

週刊少年ジャンプ
的な未来を
夢みていたよ
君のピンチも
僕のチャンスと
待ち構えていたよ

shuukan shounen janpu
teki na mirai wo
yumemiteita yo
kimi no pinchi mo
boku no chansu to
machikamaeteita yo

I’ve always dreamt about a future situation
That would totally be just like
A Weekly Shounen Jump issue
Where I’d be looking out for you
And the moment you’d get in trouble
That would finally be my chance to rescue you

きっとどんでん返し
的な未来が僕を待っている
血まみれからの方がさ
勝つ時にはかっこいいだろう

kitto dondengaeshi
teki na mirai ga boku wo matteiru
chimamire kara no hou ga sa
katsu toki ni wa kakkoii darou

I’ve always been waiting
For a sudden plot twist in the future
After all it looks so much cooler when you win
After getting all bloodied and beaten up, right?

だから今はボロボロの
心にくるまって夢をみる

dakara ima wa boroboro no
kokoro ni kurumatte yume wo miru

So right now, let me see this dream
Where my worn out heart is my only blanket

縮んだ心に
なんとか釣り合うように
丸めてた猫背も
もうやめてよ

chijinda kokoro ni
nantoka tsuriau you ni
marumeteta nekoze mo
mou yamete yo

You should stop doing that
Curled up stooping stance
As if you’re trying to show off
That you’ve lost the will to go on

下を向いてもあの頃の僕はいないよ
「ほら僕は ねぇ僕はここだよ」

shita wo muitemo ano koro no boku wa inai yo
‘hora boku wa ne? boku wa koko da yo’

Because I won’t be there when you look down, you know?
“Hey, I’m over here, you know? I’m right here!”

どこの何者でもない君も
あの時の少年は
最前列で君のことを

doko no nanimono de mo nai kimi mo
ano toki no shounen wa
saizenretsu de kimi no koto wo

The boy from that time is now at the front row
Not looking at just anyone or anything or anywhere
Only at you

君だけを見ているよ
君だけのヒーロー
君だけを見ているよ

kimi dake wo miteiru yo
kimi dake no hiiroo
kimi dake wo miteiru yo

Has eyes only for you
A hero only for you
A hero whose eyes are only for you

ナレーションをつけてさ
瞬きひとつせずに見てるよ

nareeshon wo tsukete sa
mabataki hitotsu sezu ni miteru yo

If there was a narration,
I would look on without even blinking once!

「やっとこっから勇者は
栄光に向かい立ち上がるのです
血まみれになったプライドも
さらに強く、強く握りしめ
仇を取りにいくのです
自分を捕まえにいくのです」

‘yatto kokkara yuusha wa
eikou ni mukaitachiagaru no desu
chimamire ni natta puraido mo
sara ni tsuyoku, tsuyoku nigirishime
kataki wo tori ni iku no desu
jibun wo tsukamae ni iku no desu’

“Finally! From here on out, the hero
Is standing with dignity, facing his glory.
Holding ever so tightly onto his beaten up pride,
if not even tighter than before.
He has come to reap the resentment he has sown.
He has come to take himself back.”

そして少年も立ち上がるのです
その声の限り振り絞るのです
ついにドアは光を放って開かれる

soshite shounen mo tachiagaru no desu
sono koe no kagiri furishiboru no desu
tsui ni doa wa hikari wo hanatte hirakareru

And so, the boy charges into action,
Straining his voice as he mustered his strength
Finally, the door shoots open with a beam of light!

週刊少年ジャンプ
的な未来を

僕のピンチは
僕のチャンスと
待ち構えていただろう?

shuukan shounen janpu
teki na mirai wo
yumemiteita yo
boku no pinchi wa
boku no chansu to
machikamaeteita darou?

I’ve always dreamt about a future situation
That would totally be just like
A Weekly Shounen Jump issue
Where I’d get driven up against a wall
And it would finally be my chance fight back
I’ve been waiting for that to happen, after all

I’ve always been waiting
For a sudden plot twist in the future
After all it looks so much cooler when you win
After getting all bloodied and beaten up, right?

だから今はボロボロの
心を隠さないで
泣けばいい

dakara ima wa boroboro no
kokoro wo kakusanaide
nakeba ii

So right now, I won’t hide my worn out heart
Because it’s definitely all right to cry
