Kimi no Shiranai Monogatari (君の知らない物語, The Story You Don't Know) is the closing theme song of the Bakemonogatari anime. Performed by Supercell, it is featured from Episode 1 to Episode 15.

BackgroundEdit

Ryo of Supercell was the one who composed the song's lyrics and arrangement of the track. [1] Originally, vocaloid Hatsune Miku was chosen as the vocalist for the closing theme as part of Supercell's self-titled debut album in March 2009. [2] Instead, Nagi Yanagi took over her place making their first release to not use a singing synthesizer.

Yanagi was chosen as the vocalist due to Ryo being a fan of her voice before uploading his songs to Nico Nico Douga in late 2007. Ryo's first song, "Melt", was covered by Yanagi roughly one day after the song's release on the platform. She herself was also a fan of Ryo's music and contacted him in collaborating songs together in the future.[3]

LyricsEdit

Original Japanese Japanese Rōmaji English Translation
いつもどおりのある日の事

君は突然立ち上がり言った
「今夜星を見に行こう」

itsumo-dōri no aru hi no koto

kimi wa totsuzen tachiagari itta
"kon'ya hoshi o mi ni yukō"

On a day just like any other,

you suddenly stood up and said,
"Let's go stargazing tonight!"

「たまには良いこと言うんだね」

なんてみんなして言って笑った
明かりもない道を
バカみたいにはしゃいで歩いた
抱え込んだ孤独や不安に
押しつぶされないように

"tama ni wa ii koto yuun da ne"

nante minna shite itte waratta
akari mo nai michi o
baka mitai ni hashaide aruita
kakaekonda kodoku ya fuan ni
oshitsubusarenai yō ni

"I guess even you get a good idea sometimes,"

everyone said as they laughed.
On a road not even light,
We frolicked about as we walked like fools
To avoid being crushed
by the loneliness and uneasiness we carried.

真っ暗な世界から見上げた

夜空は星が降るようで

makkura na sekai kara miageta

yozora wa hoshi ga furu yō de

As we gazed up from this pitch-black world,

the stars looked like they were falling from the night sky.

いつからだろう 君の事を

追いかける私がいた
どうかお願い
驚かないで聞いてよ
私のこの想いを

itsu kara darō, kimi no koto o

oikakeru watashi ga ita
dōka onegai
odorokanaide kiite yo
watashi no kono omoi o

Since when, I wonder,

have I been chasing after you?
Please, please
don't be startled and listen
to these feelings of mine.

「あれがデネブ、アルタイル、ベガ」

君は指さす夏の大三角
覚えて空を見る
やっと見つけた織姫様
だけどどこだろう彦星様
これじゃひとりぼっち

"are ga DENEBU ARUTAIRU BEGA"

kimi wa yubisasu Natsu no Daisankaku
oboete sora o miru
yatto mitsuketa Orihime-sama
dakedo doko darō Hikoboshi-sama
kore ja hitoribotchi

"That's Deneb, Altair, and Vega,"

you say as you point at the Summer Triangle.
I remember as I look at the sky.
I finally found Vega,
but where is Altair?
I feel as if I were all alone.

楽しげなひとつ隣の君

私は何も言えなくて

tanoshige na hitotsu tonari no kimi

watashi wa nani mo ienakute

You are by my side, enjoying yourself,

and I, am unable to say anything.

本当はずっと君の事を

どこかでわかっていた
見つかったって
届きはしない
だめだよ 泣かないで
そう言い聞かせた

hontō wa zutto kimi no koto o

dokoka de wakatte ita
mitsukattatte
todoki wa shinai
dame da yo, nakanaide
sō iikikaseta

The truth is, I've always

known somewhere inside, my feelings for you.
But just finding them
won't make them reach you.
Don't. Don't cry
is what I told myself.

強がる私は臆病で

興味がないようなふりをしてた
だけど
胸を刺す痛みは増してく
ああそうか 好きになるって
こういう事なんだね

tsuyogaru watashi wa okubyō de

kyōmi ga nai yōna furi o shiteta
dakedo
mune o sasu itami wa mashiteku
ā sō ka, suki ni naru tte
kō yuu koto nan da ne

I pretend to be strong but am cowardly

I pretended not to care.
And yet,
the stabbing pain in my heart increases,
Ah, I see, so that's what it means
to fall in love.

どうしたい? 言ってごらん

心の声がする
君の隣がいい
真実は残酷だ

dō shitai? itte goran

kokoro no koe ga suru
kimi no tonari ga ii
shinjitsu wa zankoku da

"What would you like to do? Tell me."

I hear the voice of my heart.
I want to be by your side.
But the truth is cruel.

言わなかった

言えなかった
二度と戻れない

iwanakatta

ienakatta
nido to modorenai

I didn't say it,

I couldn't say it,
I can never go back.

あの夏の日

きらめく星
今でも思い出せるよ
笑った顔も
怒った顔も
大好きでした
おかしいよね
わかってたのに
君の知らない
私だけの秘密
夜を越えて
遠い思い出の君が
指をさす
無邪気な声で

ano natsu no hi

kirameku hoshi
ima demo omoidaseru yo
waratta kao mo
okotta kao mo
daisuki deshita
okashii yo ne
wakatteta noni
kimi no shiranai
watashi dake no himitsu
yoru o koete
tōi omoide no kimi ga
yubi o sasu
mujaki na koe de

That summer day

those twinkling stars
I still remember even now.
Your face when you laughed,
your face when you were angry,
I loved it so much.
Isn't it funny?
Even though I always understood,
you never knew
my personal secret.
The night rolls on
In a distant memory, you
point with your finger
in an innocent voice.

TriviaEdit
