Senkou no Brave

The Radiant Brave

Romaji Lyrics English Translation

Toki ni mayoi nayaminagara
Tadoritsuita gendai
Yami wo akasu honmono no brave
Sagashitsuzuke aruita

Zawameku kono mune
Mihisome ikizuku
Mabushii hodo kagayaku brave

Fukai yami wo uchiyaburi mezameru
Ichiokunen no nemuri saku senkou
Nige wa shinai shinjiru mono no tame
Shin no tsuyosa yowasa sura ukeire
Gin no hikari hanate, Brave of Braves!

Kako wo seoi nao tatakau
Makoto tsuyoki monotachi
Mayoi suteta tashikana brave
Zutto kono me wa miteita

Katarikakeru mune
Kizuiteitan darou
Kono mi koso ga saigo no brave

Hikari matoi sakuretsu suru seigi
Ichiokunen wo machiwabita senkou
Nige wa shinai kono hoshi sukuu tame
Toki wo koete umarekawaru inochi
Gin no hikari mitase, Brave of Braves!

Inishie ni toraware hitei shi nigeteita
Onore wo koutei shi shinjita nakama
Mou osore nado nai kako mo ima mo subete
Ukeireta sono toki umareru honto no brave!

Hikari matoi sakuretsu suru seigi
Ichiokunen wo machiwabita senkou
Nige wa shinai kono hoshi sukuu tame
Toki wo koete umarekawaru inochi
Gin no hikari mitase, Brave of Braves!

Throughout the years I’ve wondered and worried
To reach where I am today
Searching for those with true bravery
To bring light to the darkness

But now I know this pang in my heart
Was hiding all along
A bright and shining soul of bravery!

Cleaving through the deepest darkness, I awaken
A radiant light dormant for millions of years
I shall hide no longer, and fight for those that trust me
For true strength is in accepting your weaknesses
In a flash of silver light, I am the Brave of Braves!

Over the years I’ve seen many warriors
Who fight despite the burdens they bear
The truly great warriors who cast aside their fears
And became braves worthy of that name

My heart had been telling me
This whole time
That my very being is the final form of bravery!

Clad in shining light, bursting with righteous fury
Comes a radiant light waiting for millions of years
I shall hide no longer, to protect this planet I love
After all this time, I have been born anew
In a flood of silver light, I am the Brave of Braves!

I hated what I was, and tried so hard to deny it
But my allies taught me to believe in myself
I will fear my past no longer, and accept who I was
Is part of who I am, and become truly brave!

Clad in shining light, bursting with righteous fury
Comes a radiant light waiting for millions of years
I shall hide no longer, to protect this planet I love
After all this time, I have been born anew
In a flood of silver light, I am the Brave of Braves!

This song, by the way, is a fantastic example of why translating Japanese song lyrics can be a pain: It contains a grand total of zero pronouns anywhere in the Japanese lyrics, because Japanese as a language doesn’t specifically need to use them. Luckily in this case it’s all obviously first-person because it’s Torin’s character theme, but, you know. Language.

Fuck it.
