BACK-ON – ニブンノイチ Nibun no Ichi | Lyrics and English Translation

ニブンノイチ (Nibun no Ichi) is the OP (opening theme) for the anime Gundam Build Fighters for which the band recorded a full music video (watch the PV clip on Youtube) with lots of CGI effects.  KENJI03‘s vocals prominently in the song with TEEDA rapping in between choruses and also at the end of the song.

An upbeat release with the lyrics to match: ニブンノイチ translates as “One Half” or perhaps more closely, one of two halves; the key message being that you and I are not alone and together we can complement each other as one.

It is perfectly suited to the new Gundam series, as the key protagonists are two boys who team up with their sights set on winning the Gunpla Battle World Championships.

We have LittleOslo to thank for the Kanji lyrics and ShadowChao94 for the romaji.

We would also like to give a warm thank you to Saito for the English translation!

Kanji BACK-ON – ニブンノイチ

『ひとりじゃない』僕ら繋がってるから
未来(あす)へと踏み出したくなったんだ
それぞれの夢の色をつないで この空に鮮やかな虹をかけよう!

これといって取り柄もない
劣等感と歩いて自信だってない
『ってゆーかそれで楽しいの?』って キミは笑って僕を追い越してく…

ココロの中で一人になるとFlash back! ならシンクロさせてMash up!
キミとなら出来そうさRight now! Ready set go!!

『ひとりじゃない』って思えた瞬間(とき)から
叶えられそうな気がしたんだ

変わらないいつもの笑顔のままで キミは僕の手を掴んで 歩き出すよ
自分だって信じられないくらい 期待感でもっと未来がみたい
『ってゆーかこれマジやばくない?』って 僕は笑ってキミと歩いてる…

今解き放て無限の可能性 自分で閉じ込めるのはNo way!
後はココロが示す方へ! Ready set go!!

『ふたりなら』不可能なんてないさ そう思えたのはキミがいたから
僕にない強さとキミが持ってない チカラを重ねて 飛び立つよ…

『ひとりじゃない』って思えた瞬間(とき)から
叶えられそうな気がしたんだ
変わらないいつもの笑顔のままで キミは僕の手を掴んで 歩き出すよ

『ふたりなら』不可能なんてないさ そう思えたのはキミがいたから
僕にない強さとキミが持ってない チカラを重ねて 飛び立つよ…

立ち止まるな Don’t stop!
そばにいるから Don’t cry!
キミはもう一人じゃない!
Everything’s gonna be alright!!

進みだせ 今 Go now!
二人だったら No doubt!
キミはもう一人じゃない!
Everything’s gonna be alright!!

English Translation BACK-ON – ニブンノイチ

Translated by Saito

I’m not alone, because our hearts are connected.
Just that makes me want to take a step towards tomorrow
Let’s connect all the colors of our dreams
and create a rainbow that shines with brilliance on this sky above us

Saying this won’t make any difference, but…
I don’t have the spirit nor confidence to keep walking
‘What’s so fun about that?’
You smiled and went ahead of me

When I feel lonely from the bottom of my heart FLASHBACK
I synchronize with you MASH UP
Together it feels like when can do it RIGHT NOW, READY SET GO!

I’m not alone, ever since I’ve known that
Everything seems possible
Along with that everlasting smile,
You’ll grab my hand and we’ll
walk on~!

Not being able to believe in myself enough
there’s only a feeling of hope that looks forward to tomorrow
‘Isn’t that a bit dangerous?’
I smiled and walked along with you

Now open up the limitless possibilities
Don’t imprison yourself NO WAY
Go in the direction that your heart points at READY SET GO!

If we’re together, there’s no such thing as impossible
I feel that way because you’re there
You make up for the strength that I lack
With our strengths overlapping we’ll
Take off~!

I’m not alone, ever since I’ve known that
Everything seems possible
Along with that everlasting smile,
you’ll grab my hand and we’ll
walk on~!

If we’re together, there’s no such thing as impossible
I feel that way because you’re there
You make up for the strength that I lack
With our strengths overlapping we’ll
Take off~!

Don’t stand still DON’T STOP
Because I’m by your side DON’T CRY
You’re not alone anymore
EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE ALRIGHT
Proceed now GO NOW
Because we’re together NO DOUBT
You’re not alone anymore
EVERYTHING’S GONNA BE ALRIGHT
