Five CDs I borrowed from Tsutaya this Thursday -- Chara's Dark Candy, Mr. Children's Shifuku no Oto, a Yuzu best hits collection from 1997 to 2007, and Bump of Chicken's remaining discography I hadn't heard in full before. I finished listening to all of them today, and there was one song on the Yuzu CD that was so cute I knew I had to translate it right away.

Youtube link here, for anyone interested in having a listen.



"The Protagonist of My Manga"

"From the time I was small, I was overweight/ I sucked at school and sports/ because I had no confidence, I got easily worked up about stuff/ and was ignored by everyone/ even still, I got stuck on something/ and that was drawing manga

You see, the protagonist of my manga/ always had the qualities I lacked myself/ a hero admired by everyone/ he always, always kept smiling

Even in middle school, I was still overweight/ as always, bad at school and sports/ I liked this cute girl/ but one day, I saw her holding someone else's hand/ everyone was half-asleep, facing their desks/ but even so, I kept on drawing manga once again

You see, the protagonist of my manga/ always had a wonderful love/ a story admired by everyone/ and he always, always kept smiling

I wonder just how/ the me from that time/ is reflected in your eyes/ I couldn't become the hero I admired/ but I'm walking down the path I believed in like this

You see, the protagonist of my manga/ always had the qualities I lacked myself/ a hero admired by everyone/ he always, always kept smiling

A story admired by everyone/ and he always, always kept smiling"
