The Characters In Order of Appearance

Artist Comments

Basketball does not make excuses for the short height of the main character, Sora Kurumatani. I was impressed there. Each person has more or less complex abilities and shortcomings. At the same time, there must be promises and vows that you do not want to lose to yourself.

I also thought that it was the feeling that everybody had to carry on their back and live like a cross that could not be separated.

"Don't worry about your bad self! Never mind! Take only you who you can tomorrow." "Let's lose to yourself." This lifelong task is tens of thousands more difficult than saying in words. I think that the courage of Sora Kurumatani will guide many people.

We would like to convey this song while feeling the happiness that flumpool's “Never Mind” can play a part. (By Ryuta Yamamura)

Lyrics

Kanji

鏡に背中向けて 歩むほどに遠ざかる夢よ

まっすぐ君と向き合いたい

できない自分へと 「ネバーマインド」

流れ作業で分別(わけ)てゆく夢

(向き?不向き?いわば論外?)

声もなく消えてった本音(こえ)

(ため息すら出ない)

他人(ひと)のせいにしたって終われない

目の前に切り立った 今

「越えたい」と心が叫んでる

できない理由(わけ)を探すなら 誰でもできるさ

あがき走ったその先 まだ知らない自分と出逢う

壁に刻み込んだ落書きと 「ネバーマインド」

いま 明日へと弾め

Kanji (full)

鏡に背中向けて 歩むほどに遠ざかる夢よ

まっすぐ君と向き合いたい

できない自分へと 「ネバーマインド」

流れ作業で分別(わけ)てゆく夢 (向き?不向き?いわば論外?)

声もなく消えてった本音(こえ)

(ため息すら出ない)

他人(ひと)のせいにしたって終われない

目の前に切り立った 今

「越えたい」と心が叫んでる

できない理由(わけ)を探すなら 誰でもできるさ

あがき走ったその先 まだ知らない自分と出逢う

壁に刻み込んだ落書きと 「ネバーマインド」

いま 明日へと弾め

不甲斐ない今日が無意味に捨てられる

(結果至上主義の社会)

ゼロに潜在(ひそ)んだ無限の伸びしろ

(忍ばせてる期待)

自分というストーリー 終わらせない

けなされて苦笑(わら)うだけの

「らしさ」なんて誇りたくはない

目をそむけ理想並べても 遠ざかってく現実(リアル)

長い暗闇の先 灯る光信じて

散り散りになった 約束の切れ端

さぁ 繋ぎあわせて

鏡の前の君よ 無理に笑顔作らなくていい

その素顔と向き合うとき 瞳に宿る熱

目の前に切り立った 今

「超えたい」と心が叫んでる

できない理由(わけ)に埋もれてる 微かな可能性

あがき走ったその先 まだ知らない自分と出逢う

壁に刻み込んだ落書きと 「ネバーマインド」

いま 明日へと弾め

Romaji

Kagami ni senaka mukete ayumu hodo ni tōzakaru yume yo

Massugu kimi to mukiaitai

Dekinai jibun e to "nebā maindo"

Nagare sagyō de wake te yuku yume

(muki? fumuki? iwaba rongai?)

Koe mo naku kietetta koe

(tameiki sura denai)

Hito no sei ni shi tatte owarenai

Me no mae ni kiritatta ima

"koetai" to kokoro ga sakenderu

Dekinai wake o sagasunara dare de mo dekiru sa

Agaki hashitta sono saki mada shiranai jibun to deau

Kabe ni kizamikonda rakugaki to "nebā maindo"

Ima asu e to hazume

English

Turning my back to the mirror- a dream disappears as I walk away

I want to confront you

"never mind" to the me who can't

Dreams that are taken apart by the assembly-line.

(Suitable or not? Is it out of the question?)

My true opinion disappeared without a chance to express my voice

(not even a sigh)

I can't finish even by blaming on others

Now is standing before my eyes

My heart shouts, "I want to get over it."

If you are looking for an excuse why you can't, well anyone can do it

If you make every effort to get beyond that hill

You will meet your new self

"Never mind" to the carvings engraved on the wall

Now let's bounce to tomorrow

Now let's bounce to tomorrow

The disappointing today is thrown away and wasted

(the result oriented society)

Within zero, there is infinite growth

(hidden expectation)

I won't let my story end

You endure it and only give a strained laugh and a fake smile.

I don't want to be proud of myself for that.

Even if you look away and list what's ideal, you become out of touch from reality.

Believe in the light that shines before the long darkness.

Pieces of our promises are scattered

Gather and connect them

You, in front of the mirror, don't have to smile

When you face your true nature, you'll see your passion in your eyes

Now is standing before my eyes

My heart shouts, "I want to get over it"

If you are looking for an excuse why you can't, well anyone can do it

If you make every effort to get beyond that hill

You will meet your new self

"Never mind" to the carvings engraved on the wall

Now let's bounce to tomorrow
