「Challenger Spirit」

日向順平 (細谷佳正) & 伊月俊 (野島裕史)
Hyuuga Junpei (Hosoya Yoshimasa) & Izuki Shun (Nojima Hirofumi)

“Our regrets? We’ve overcome them / That’s our will as senpai…”

Key:
Hyuuga
Izuki
Unison

Translation:

Everyone who’s standing here has honed his skills to make it this far
But we’re still aiming ever higher
If we step back and look at the big picture
It’s clear we’ve made progress

We’re surrounded by teammates we can count on

Our regrets? We’ve overcome them / That’s our will as senpai
They’ve exceeded our expectations and risen to the challenge
For our sake

We are the challengers / Let’s never forget that
Remembering that fact has helped us grow stronger
Just like a dream, it seemed so distant
But somehow, we could believe
In the future we see with this team

Facing off and bringing out the best in my team
And understanding my own unique skills
Taking advantage of the entirety of the court
To run the right plays and ensure I don’t break the flow
I put my heart on the line with every shot I take

We shook off the mood of surrender / After embarking on this journey
We gained strength greater than we had ever imagined
Ain’t that right?

To this day, we’re still the challengers
Because our real debut starts now
Since we’ve grown stronger, we can try that much harder
Today seemed so far away / Still, we know we’ve got a long way to go
And that’s thanks to our teammates

Izuki: Hyuuga! [passes the ball]
Hyuuga: Alright! [makes a basket]
Izuki: Nice shot! Looks like you upped your game again.
Hyuuga: Hm? Yeah, I guess.
Izuki: Huh?
Hyuuga: Nothing. I just thought you were gonna say something stupid again.
Izuki: Maybe along the lines of: A shunted pass from Izuki Shun that shunned that ball right to the basket! That’s a great one!
Hyuuga: Yep, that’s so damn annoying! C’mon, pass!
Izuki: What the heck? You’re the one who brought it up. Banning banter, are you?! Oh, this is it!
Hyuuga: Shut it!

We are the challengers / Let’s never forget that
Remembering that fact has helped us grow stronger
Just like a dream, it seemed so distant
But somehow, we could believe
In the future we see with this team
In the future we swore on the roof

Romaji:

Koko ni iru yatsura minna / hitori zutsu ga migaite kita jibun de
Mada sono saki wo mezashiteru
Nanigenaku miwataseba mou / ano koro yori kakujitsu ni
Tayoreru nakama no kao ga aru

Kuyashisa nara norikoeta / senpai no iji darou
Shimeshita ijou ni kurai tsuite kureta yo na
Aitsura

Oretachi ha chousensha datte / nando demo omoishirou
Sonotabi tsuyoku natte kita kara
Yume mitaku tookatta yo na / demo naze ka shinjirareta n da
Kono chiimu de miru mirai wo

Mukiatte hikidashi atte / jibun dake no buki ga wakaru
Kooto zentai no naka de koso no
Ikasu beki sono purei wo / ore de togiresasetakunai
Hanatsu shuuto ni kakeru omoi

Akirame no muudo wo nugutte / fumidashita hibi ha
Souzou ijou no oretachi ni chikazuketa
Sou daro?

Ima datte chousensha nan da / korekara ga honban dakara
Fueta chikara no bun mo ganbareru
Anna ni mo tookatta kyou ga / madamada to omoeru no ha
Kitto minna no okage da

Oretachi ha chousensha datte / nando demo omoishirou
Sonotabi tsuyoku natte kita kara
Yume mitaku tookatta yo na / demo naze ka shinjirareta n da
Kono chiimu de miru mirai wo
Okujou de chikatta mirai wo
