To Aru Majutsu no Index II 1st Opening Theme – No buts!

No buts!
Vocals: Kawada Mami
Lyrics: Kawada Mami
Composition: Nakazawa Tomoyuki
Arrangement: Nakazawa Tomoyuki & Ozaki Takeshi

I stared at the coin I flipped with my fingers
If it’s heads, I’ll GO, tails, I’ll STAY. First off, let me know the answer

“Please, won’t you tell me?”
Angels will ascertain it with a smile

Get lost! There’s no one to pull your hand along
The answer God gave was misfortune
Yeah, that indeed is the gift from God
If you overcome it, you can see it, so go right away
[Look for it by oneself, no buts about it.]
No buts!

I picked up the arranged card
The smiling Joker won’t speak of the end

“Is this the ticket to Heaven?”
The jester acted funny, pretending that he didn’t hear me

Shout! That this is the only road to go down now
Your chest is unreliable, so strike your heart
Ah, misfortune made you realize happiness
If you don’t overcome it, you can’t see it, so go right away

No buts!

[Get it over oneself, no buts about it.]
[Look for it by oneself, no buts about it.]
[When getting it over, you understand it.]
[Look for it by oneself, no buts about it.]


Get lost! There’s no one to pull your hand along
The answer God gave was misfortune
Yeah, God is always singing behind your back
‘If you overcome it, you can see it,’ so go right away
[Look for it by oneself, no buts about it.]
No buts!


No buts!
Vocals: Kawada Mami

Yubi de hajiku koin mitsumeta
Omote nara GO, ura wa STAY. Mazu kotae o kikasete

“Douka oshiete kuremasen ka?”
Tenshi wa misadameru   egao no mama

Mayoe! Sono te o hiku mono nado inai
Kami ga kudasu   sono kotae wa fukou datta
Sou   sore koso Kami kara no okurimono
Norikoetara miete kuru sa   dakara ima sugu
[Look for it by oneself,no buts about it.]
No buts!

Naraberareta kaado mekutta
Hohoenderu sono jookaa   ketsumatsu o kataranai

“Kore wa tengoku-yuki no chiketto?”
Doukeshi wa kikanu furi de odoketa

Sakebe! Ima yuku kono michi shika nai to
Tayorinai mune   sono kokoro o naguritsukete
Aa   fukou ni kizukasareta shiawase
Norikoenakya miete konai   dakara ima sugu

No buts!

[Get it over oneself,no buts about it.]
[Look for it by oneself,no buts about it.]
[When getting it over, you understand it.]
[Look for it by oneself,no buts about it.]


Mayoe! Sono te o hiku mono nado inai
Kami ga kudasu   sono kotae wa fukou datta
Sou   itsu datte Kami wa hai de utau
‘Norikoetara miete kuru sa’   dakara ima sugu
[Look for it by oneself,no buts about it.]
No buts!
