BLEACH 13th Opening Theme – Ranbu no Melody

The Melody of a Wild Dance
Vocals: SID
Lyrics: Mao
Composition: Mimegumi Aki
Arrangement: SID

I quietly, quietly cut the curtains down
There’s a blue flame in the dawn of awakening

Darkness and discord as far as the eye can see, in the days of fumbling
We walked on, embracing a weakness of not knowing defeat

BLEACH the Movie: Fade to Black Theme Song – Koyoi, Tsuki ga Miezu tomo

Dazai refers to works by Dazai Osamu, a Japanese writer known for his brilliant yet pessimistic writing style.

Tonight, Even if You Can’t See the Moon
Vocals: Porno Graffiti
Lyrics: Shindo Haruichi
Composition: Okano Akihito

Tonight, where does the moon shine on? From the sky covered in thick clouds
Tonight, who are you embraced by? Are you going to cry alone in the rain?

If you’re ashamed of yourself for thinking that you can share everything and having anticipated so
Then with a Dazai in your hand, you get onto the roof and show this world that you’re worried
You got yourself when you spat into the sky

Vocals: YUI
Lyrics: YUI

I just can’t stand it anymore
I’ve got to say what I want to say

I say Bye Bye Bye to your sunken back

BLEACH 13th Ending Theme – Tane o Maku Hibi

The Days When I Sow Seeds
Vocals: Atari Kosuke
Lyrics: Kamogawa Yoshiyuki
Composition: Osaka Konosuke
Arrangement: Kono Shin

In the usual scenery of the usual city
The monochrome wind is blowing
In a fragment of hesitation that’s faintly fragrant
I’m wavering somewhere in my heart

Composition: Demon Kogure & T.B.

Even if I disappear, my heart is in tomorrow
To go from zero again- The truth is, it’s impossible
Even if I get controlled, I won’t fall for it
Even though I’m a toy

BLEACH 2nd Movie Theme Song – Hikari no Rock

Rock of Light
Vocals: Sambomaster
Lyrics: Yamaguchi Takashi
Composition: Yamaguchi Takashi

Even if we only unbutton the buttons that are done wrong, nothing changes for us, right?
We’re only always dreaming here, so clumsy that we don’t do anything, aren’t we?

The things I’ve lost up to now and the things you see from this point-
If everything is replaced, can they change? Can they change?

BLEACH 7th Opening Theme – After Dark

Just not as cool as Rewrite… Maybe it was the elevator scene in the OP sequence that made Rewrite better?

After Dark
Vocals: Asian Kung-Fu Generation
Lyrics: Goto Masafumi
Composition: Goto Masafumi & Yamada Takahiro
Arrangement: Asian Kung-Fu Generation

I’ll escape while the shadow behind me finishes growing
Without even realizing that my wings have peeled and fallen off, I fly

I drool over the sweet scent at the street corner
From the far side
There’s a cry that sounds like I’ve heard it elsewhere

BLEACH 1st Movie Theme – Sen no Yoru o Koete

Overcoming Thousands of Nights
Vocals: Aqua Timez

I want to be loved, but I don’t try to love; wandering within that repetition
I found one answer, that even if I’m scared, even if I’m hurt
I can say “I love you” to the one who I love

BLEACH 7th Ending Theme – HANABI

I hope I preserved the meaning of the original lyrics well enough, like how blooms (hana) carries the double meaning of flower and bloom of fireworks.

Vocals: Ikimono-gakari
Lyrics: Mizuno Yoshiki
Composition: Mizuno Yoshiki
Arrangement: Eguchi Ryo

Sparkling and flickering, the pale dreams burst in the air
The blooms burn

In the sky that falls silent, there are two dreamy fireworks
Could you, having departed for a far place, also see the same light?
Even if we get separated, I believe that we’ll be able to meet someday
I’ll sing the feelings tearing apart my heart to you; can you hear my voice?

BLEACH 3rd Ending Theme – Houkiboshi

Vocals: Younha
Lyrics: Sato Ema
Composition: Tanaka Nao
Arrangement: Tanaka Nao

Alone, I looked up at the night sky and saw a comet
It burst out for only a moment and disappeared
But if I think of you, my chest aches
I want to see you now, but since I can’t fly in the sky-

BLEACH 1st Ending Theme – Life is Like a Boat

You guys really love this song, don’t you? I cleaned up off-topic and repeated comments, but some of the remaining comments are really gems in their own right. They bring a smile to my face every time I read them.

Life is Like a Boat
Vocals: Rie fu
Lyrics: Rie fu
Composition: Rie fu

Nobody knows who I really am
I never felt this empty before
And if I ever need someone to come along
Who’s gonna comfort me, and keep me strong

BLEACH 5th Ending Theme – LIFE

Vocals: YUI
Lyrics: YUI
Composition: YUI
Arrangement: northa+

I’m covered in mud, in an unfamiliar city; I can’t smile like usual, I walked with my head down
People pass by at a quick pace; “Did your dream come true?” I’m still struggling

Rather than returning to when I was a kid, I want to try living well now
I was born timid

BLEACH 3rd Opening Theme – Ichirin no Hana

A Single Flower
Composition: HIGH and MIGHTY COLOR
Arrangement: HIGH and MIGHTY COLOR

You are no one else but yourself; there’s no other replacement for you; so please don’t wilt, my single flower

You’re just like the flower that bloomed in the shade where light doesn’t shine directly into
Having taken root at a place you couldn’t have wished for, you’re unable to move
