Toradora! 1st Opening Theme – Pre-Parade

Pre-Parade
Vocals: Kugimiya Rie, Horie Yui, Kitamura Eri as Aisaka Taiga, Kushieda Minori, Kawashima Ami
Lyrics: Watanabe Akiko
Composition: Okubo Kaoru
Arrangement: Suzuki Mitsuto

Pre! Preparation!
I’m not strong
But pre! Pre-parade!
I’ll catch you someday!

P-re-prepare, p-re-prepare, p-re-prepare, cracking apart
P-re-prepare, p-re-prepare, p-re-prepare

If you’re not paying attention, be prepared for a poking attack from my fingers
I might be little, but I’ll squish you; you’re as tiny as a flea to me

What I want is a plastic heart (plus, plus, but it’s a minus)
But that’s boring; those who realize it are the winners

Love is something that’s bittersweet
Simple and clear yet complex and strange stuff
I’m only worrying about things that don’t matter
How does it feel? That’s how it feels
You’re gentle and sincere yet eccentric
I pretend to be strong all over and compete against you
Just by being honest, it’s so stimulating and I feel dizzy
I get hurt, I hurt you, in a preparation of pure feelings

P-re-prepare, p-re-prepare, p-re-prepare, cracking apart
P-re-prepare, p-re-prepare, p-re-prepare

If I polish myself, I’ll still shine; limits don’t exist
Even if I’m little, there’s something that I can’t lose to anyone at

Endure it until I get closer to you (endure it, endure it, patience is important)
If you get any closer to me, I’ll crack

People are kind and stimulating
Refreshing fellows who suffer hardships
Even when they want to cry, they grin from ear to ear
How does it feel? It feels like a loss
You’re brilliant and totally active
I mount surprise attacks on you with a bold attitude to get my revenge
Just by going straight ahead, I’m driven by anxiety and I feel nervous
In my head, there’s always a pre-parade of pure feelings all by myself

Love is something that’s bittersweet
Simple and clear yet complex and strange stuff
I’m only worrying about things that don’t matter
How does it feel? That’s how it feels
You’re gentle and sincere yet eccentric
I pretend to be strong all over and compete against you
Just by being honest, it’s so stimulating and I feel dizzy
I get hurt, I hurt you, in a preparation of pure feelings
In my head, there’s always a pre-parade of pure feelings all by myself


Pure-Pareedo

Pure!   Pureparaato!
Tsuyoku nanka nai kedo
Pure!   Pure-pareedo!
Itsuka kimi o tsukamaeru!

Pu-re-purepa   pu-re-purepa   pu-re-purepa   warete baribari
Pu-re-purepa   pu-re-purepa   pu-re-purepa

Yudanshitara   sono yubi   chikuchiku atakku   kakugoshite
Chiisai kedo   hasamu no   mijinko mitai na anata

Hoshii no wa   purasuchikku na haato (purasu   purasu   dakedo mainasu)
Demo sore ja tsumaranai   soko ni kizuita mono kachi

Koi wa amakute   nigai mono
Tanjun meikai   fukuzatsu kaiki na shiromono
Dou de mo ii koto bakkari ki ni shitari suru no
Donna kanji? Sonna kanji
Onkou tokujitsu   ekisentorikku na anata
Tsuyogaru soburi o zenshin matotte tachiuchi
Sunao na dake da to shigeki ga tsuyokute   kurakura
Kizutsuichau no   kizutsukechau no   junjou pureparaato

Pu-re-purepa   pu-re-purepa   pu-re-purepa   warete baribari
Pu-re-purepa   pu-re-purepa   pu-re-purepa

Migakeba mada   kagayaku   genkai nante   arienai
Chiisakute mo   dare ni mo   makenai nanika ga aru no

Watashi kara   chikazuku made taete yo (taete   taete   konki ga daiji)
Anata kara   sore ijou chikazukaretara warechau

Hito wa yasashiku   shigekiteki
Kibun soukai   nangyou kugyou no shiromono
Nakitai toki ni mo nikoniko warattari suru no
Donna kanji? Son na kanji
Saiki kanpatsu   akutibu zenkai na anata
Tsuyoki na taido de kishuu o shikakete katakiuchi
Chokushin dake da to fuan ni kararete   sowasowa
Atama no naka wa   itsumo hitori no   junjou pure-pareedo

Koi wa amakute   nigai mono
Tanjun meikai   fukuzatsu kaiki na shiromono
Dou de mo ii koto bakkari ki ni shitari suru no
Donna kanji? Sonna kanji
Onkou tokujitsu   ekisentorikku na anata
Tsuyogaru soburi o zenshin matotte tachiuchi
Sunao na dake da to shigeki ga tsuyokute   kurakura
Kizutsuichau no   kizutsukechau no   junjou pureparaato
Atama no naka wa   itsumo hitori no   junjou pure-pareedo
