[translation] “Kuroko no Basuke” Solo Series Vol. 10 (Kiyoshi)

「Strong Heart」+ モノローグ
“Strong Heart” + Monologues

木吉鉄平 (浜田賢二)
Kiyoshi Teppei (Hamada Kenji)

“This heart of mine will never break or yield
It’s strong enough to defend all I hold dear”

First Monologue: “Enjoy the Scenery Along the Way”

My personal motto is “with one’s heart and soul”. (1) It means to devote yourself wholeheartedly to one thing above all else. Right now, for me, that’s basketball. No doubt about it. I mean, when I first formed the basketball club, I swore in front of everyone that I’d make this team number one in Japan. The journey to the summit isn’t an easy one, but let’s enjoy the scenery along the way, too! (2)

Second Monologue: “I’ll Become Strong Enough to Defend This Team”

It was my idea to form the basketball club, but it’s thanks to everyone on the team that I’ve been able to make it this far. Even while I was recovering from my injury, Hyuuga and Riko were there to push and pull the team as its captain and coach. They’re the ones who kept the Seirin basketball club going strong. Those two are really incredible! Some interesting rookies joined the team this year, too, so I definitely can’t lose to them. I’m going to relearn what I’ve forgotten as quickly as possible so I can become strong enough to defend this team!

Translation Notes:
(1) 「一意専心 」= “ichiisenshin”
(2) 「天辺」= “teppei” = “summit”/“peak” is pronounced the same as Kiyoshi’s first name, Teppei

Translation: “Strong Heart”

This heart of mine will never break or yield
It’s strong enough to defend all I hold dear

We’ve put our minds to the task, so let’s enjoy every step of the way
Come on, we’re aiming for the very top
See, it’s not that complicated / If this is something you love
Then why not devote yourself wholeheartedly to it?

On the court and the bench, we’re united as one
And that’s what makes me happy

If you ever lose heart, I want you to rely on me
I’ll hold fast ‘til the end / I’ll give all that I’ve got / I promise
I will support my comrades with all my strength
Because there’s no place I’d rather be

Sometimes it can be tough to keep the faith
But we’re a team, you know?
There’s no need for you to hold back or go it alone
I know you swallow your complaints for the sake of the team

Rather than waste time regretting the day I reach my limit
I’ll face tomorrow with a smile on my face

I’ll clinch victory with these outstretched hands
And feel the joy of winning, surrounded by the smiles of my comrades
This heart of mine will never break or yield
It’s strong enough to defend all I hold dear

Let’s take it one step at a time as we run at full tilt
We’ve only just begun our journey

If you ever lose heart, I want you to rely on me
I’ll hold fast ‘til the end / I’ll give all that I’ve got / I promise
I will support my comrades with all my strength
Because there’s no place I’d rather be
