Perfect Mission

Romaji Lyrics English Translation

Nerawareta kono machi ni wa nani ga hitsuyou?
Seigi to iu na no shield wo matteiru
Hikari sasu basho no ura ni tensou saretekuru
Shihaiteki yokubou ni esa nante yaranai

(OK!) Tatakau imi wa itsudatte
(Go Straight!) Sorezore no unmei wo
Tsunagitomete arubeki basho
Moto ni modosu tame ni

(It’s Time for Buster!) Lockon shitara
(Guaranteed Shutdown!) Nigasanai no sa
Countdown hajimaru
Aratana teki ga mata arawareru
(It’s Time for Buster!) Mission itsumo
(Guaranteed Shutdown!) Kanpeki ni kimeru
Kono sekai kara nani mo ubawasenai!
Perfect Mission

Tatakai no chijou ni itsumo gareki no ame ga
Furu nara bokura ga kasa ni naru to chikau yo
Katsu tame ja naku minna wo mamoritai kara
Chiisana himei hitotsu kikinogashitakunai

(OK!) Dareka no oshitsuke ja nakute
(Go Straight!) Jibun de kimeta michi wo
Aruite yuku sa onaji mirai
Miteru nakama tachi to

(It’s Time for Buster!) Lockon shitara
(Guaranteed Shutdown!) Hazusanai no sa
Sora mo riku mo
Buddy to tomo ni mamorinuku kakugo
(It’s Time for Buster!) Mission itsumo
(Guaranteed Shutdown!) Kanpeki ni kimeru
Bokura no kibou nido to ubawasenai!
Perfect Mission

Ashita ga kyou yori mo kitto
Ii hi to shinjirareru
Sonna futsuu kanaeru tame bokura wa hashiridasu

(It’s Time for Buster!) Lockon shitara
(Guaranteed Shutdown!) Nigasanai no sa
Countdown hajimaru
Aratana teki ga mata arawareru
(It’s Time for Buster!) Mission itsumo
(Guaranteed Shutdown!) Kanpeki ni kimeru
Kono sekai kara nani mo ubawasenai!
Perfect Mission

What does this city need to keep itself safe?
It’s waiting for the shield of justice to protect it
In the shadows of its sunlit streets, evil transports in
But we’ll stop their desires of control taking root

(OK!) What any warrior fights for
(Go Straight!) Is to protect the place
They belong, a place they can call home
And bring it some semblance of peace

(It’s Time for Buster!) Once we lock onto you
(Guaranteed Shutdown!) There’ll be no escape
The countdown’s begun
Until a new enemy arrives!
(It’s Time for Buster!) Finishing every mission
(Guaranteed Shutdown!) With perfect precision
We won’t let you rob our world of anything more!
Perfect Mission

If the scars of battle are going to rain upon us
Then we shall be the shield that protects from them
It’s our resolve to protect, not merely to win the fight
That means that no scream will ever go unheard

(OK!) We’ve made this decision
(Go Straight!) To follow our own path
Knowing that together
We all strive for the same future

(It’s Time for Buster!) Once we lock onto you
(Guaranteed Shutdown!) We’re not gonna miss
We’ll protect the skies and streets
Buddies and Busters with unfaltering resolve
(It’s Time for Buster!) Finishing every mission
(Guaranteed Shutdown!) With perfect precision
This time, our hope is here to stay!
Perfect Mission

We have faith that tomorrow
Will be a better day
So let’s move out, and realize that simple wish!

(It’s Time for Buster!) Once we lock onto you
(Guaranteed Shutdown!) There’ll be no escape
The countdown’s begun
Until a new enemy arrives!
(It’s Time for Buster!) Finishing every mission
(Guaranteed Shutdown!) With perfect precision
We won’t let you rob our world of anything more!
Perfect Mission

This is the catchiest fucking song. You know, Japanese as a language doesn’t lend itself well to rhymes, but if I can spot a really good excuse to slip one into a translation, I’m not going to be against it – after all, making songs rhyme is pretty much engrained so hard into the culture of the English language as to make not doing it be really weird. Hence, “Finishing every mission / with perfect precision” just seemed so fucking perfect. Now if only I’d bothered to make it actually scan to the syllable count. V:
