BACK-ON – wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY) | Lyrics, Romaji, LRC

To celebrate today’s release of BACK-ON‘s new single “wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY)“, which reached #1 and #2 respectively in digital download charts Mora.jp and iTunes Japan Top 10 Rock Songs even before the physical release, we are delighted to be able to share the lyrics of the title track “wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY)” with you!

As many will know, it is the second OP for the anime “Gundam Build Fighters” – the first, ニブンノイチ (Nibun no Ichi) also by BACK-ON, reached #12 in the Oricon charts and was always going to be a tough act to follow. However, the band have outdone themselves; the icing on the cake is Lil’ Fang, who brings strong female vocals into the mix, as it really adds another dimension to the song. The highlight for me personally are the rap parts by TEEDA that are interspersed with Lil’ Fang‘s singing: I got tingles when I heard these for the first time!

And as an even better surprise, BACK-ON actually released the full music video of wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY) on Youtube instead of just including it on their DVD special, so you can listen to/watch the full song below:

Whilst waiting for the CD to arrive, we have LittleOslo to thank for the Kanji lyrics and once we have an English translation, we will post it here.

Points of interest during our transcription process to Romaji:

  • An alternative pronunciation of 百 (hyaku) is used: ‘byaku’
  • A synonym of 運命 (unmei) or ‘Fate’ is used in the rap: 定め (sadame) is what TEEDA actually says
  • 瞳(め), usually pronounced ‘hitomi’, is replaced with ‘me’ as denoted in the brackets
  • 空 is pronounced ‘kara’ instead of the frequently used ‘sora’

Don’t forget you can always listen to all of BACK-ON‘s releases on our radio, which is found above the comments on the Music page.

Our standard disclaimer is as follows:

The usual kanji, romaji, karaoke and .lrc versions of the lyrics can be found below (after the cut-off) and we will always do our best to bring you the most accurate lyrics possible, so we do occasionally amend the spelling of the original English lyrics if we believe it to be appropriate. But as always, if you spot any mistakes, please let us know either by commenting below or via the contact form.

Finally, if you would like to post these lyrics elsewhere, please kindly link back to this page. :)

Today marks the beginning of the 7-day countdown to the forthcoming release of wimp ft. Lil’ Fang (from FAKY) [single] on March 12th 2014.  In the build up, BACK-ON released a teaser music video in February, giving fans their first opportunity to listen to the full version of the Gundam Build Fighters OP, featuring clips of band and Lil’ Fang filming the full MV.

You can now watch the full music video below or by clicking on the following link:

In a marked departure from their previous releases, this is one of the first times in recent years that BACK-ON has made the full music video available online (they were often included as ‘special’ extras on DVD versions of their album/single releases – Icecream and ニブンノイチ (Nibun no Ichi) are both examples)  and has been completely filmed in the studio without exterior scenes.

I really like the new approach and its really great to be able to watch the band perform with Lil’ Fang without ‘moody’ shots or fancy CGI distractions (aside from the colour-shape loops at the start)
