Abingdon Boys School – Kimi no Uta (Tokyo 8.0 Magnitude OP)

It’s been quite some time since my last Japanese song review..I think it’s good that I put up a song from a not so new Japanese anime..

Abingdon Boys School, formed in 2005, named after the British independent school Abingdon School, in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, where the rock band Radiohead is established..

Led by Takanori Nishikawa, the vocal behind T.M Revolution, together with Sunao (guitar), Hitoshi Shibasaki (ex Wands guitarist), Toshiyuki Kishi (keyboard), Ikuo (bass), and Kozy Hasegawa (drums)..

I should have known by listening to their earlier tracks like “Innocent Sorrow” (D.Gray Man OP1), “Strength” (Soul Eater ED4), and few others, the voice is definitely very familiar..

T.M Revolution, best-known for their many tracks in some of the Gundam series especially Gundam SEED, the voice of Nishikawa is no stranger to me..

Now move back to the song Kimi no Uta by Abingdon Boys School, an opening song (OP) for Tokyo 8.0 Magnitude, an anime with lots of good reviews..

It’s about Tokyo fall into a chaotic situation where a 8.0 magnitude earthquake hit it and the story goes on from there..

It’s thrilling and touching and whatever it is..

I have the whole season but have yet to watch a single episode..

Anyhow, here’s the MTV and lyrics for Kimi no Uta by Abingdon Boys School..

Abingdon Boys School – Kimi no Uta

kimi no tame ni ima subete o sasage you
tsunaida te o hanasanaide

shimeta ASUFARUTO sabita ame no nioi ni
suikomarete ikisou de
zutto obie nagara chiisaku hiza o kakaete
hikui kumo o nagameteita

ano hi kimi ga kureta yasashisa sae
nakushite shimau hodo yuganda kono sekai de
utsumuku sono toki wa
itsudemo boku ga soba ni iru kara

kimi no tame ni ima subete o sasage you
kanau no nara
motometa no wa tashika na nukumori dake
tsunaida te o hanasanaide

zawameku machinami ni moreta kimi no himei ga
kaki kesarete yuku you ni
doushite bokutachi wa onaji hoshi ni umarete
chigau basho e tadoritsuku no

futari mita keshiki ga iroasete mo
kowarete shimau kurai ibitsu na kono sekai no
wazuka na kagayaki de
hagureta kimi o boku wa sagasu yo

doko made demo kono omoi o todoke you
afureta mama
haruka tooku kimi o tsurete yuku kara
sono hitomi o sorasanai de

kimi no tame ni kono inochi o sasage you
deaeta kara
sugita hibi wa nido to modoranai kedo
tsunaida te o hanasanaide

  1. I just discovered SatelliteTV on my PC! Ultra cheap at only $50 once off to get the software and an account on the Internet. I get more channels(in HD I might ad) than I get on cable so tomorrow I reckon I’m going to cancel my cable subscription. Thought I’d share this with you guys, worth to check out.
