I recently received a pack of the Parapara trump cards with help from a lovely friend and decided to scan them up into gifs. This chibi style by Kyoani is probably one of my favourites they’ve ever put out for the boys ever since they released the shimejis last year and I’m going to be treasuring these for a long time (I’m still treating them like glass right now I’m even too scared to shuffle them).

official full version of Yamazaki Sousuke’s 2nd character song, Just Wanna Know, sung by Hosoya Yoshimasa. 

lyrics: 

その目に映るもの おまえを動かす理由

閉ざしかけた世界の先

こじ開けた希望に 続いてく道の途中

Please tell me what you see 同じ夏へ帰ろう

Just wanna know the reason 繋いたリレーに

まだ知らない感情が きっとある

驚いた顔は隠せたかな

いつでも 周りなんて構いもしないで

走ってく背 送り出してやることで 俺は何を飲み込んでた?

考え方までを干渉するなんて

俺たちにはない選択だったんだ(そうだったよな?)

その目に映るもの おまえを動かす理由

それはいつも明確なんだろう

いつか分かってみたい “仲間”が指してる意味

そこにしかない本物になる瞬間

アイツらが見せてくれた景色に

どれだけ その心救われたんだろう

空っぽだった俺にも問いかけてきた ちっぽけだって、新しい夢

絆とかもう充分なハズで

だけど、まだ何かありそうなんだ

あの頃とは違う今、見つけたい何か まっすぐ水を蹴って

その光の向こうへ あと数メートル 飛び込む

Just wanna know the reason 繋いたリレーが

教えてるれるさ

その目に映るもの おまえを動かす理由

閉ざしかけた世界の先

こじ開けた希望に 続いてく道の途中

Please tell me what you see きっと同じ景色だ

その目に映る夏

Translation:

What your eyes are reflecting

is the motive that moves you.

When my world was about to close

hope was pried open. 

While you are on that road that goes on and on

please tell me what you see.

Let’s return to the same summer together.

-

Just wanna know the reason.

In the relay that connects us,

there is an emotion I don’t understand yet.

-

Was I able to hide my surprised expression?

Seeing your backside running ahead

always, without regard to others

what did I have to swallow inside?

To disturb the way the other thinks

was not an option for us then. (It was like that, wasn’t it?)

-

What your eyes are reflecting

is the motive that moves you.

It’s always been clear to you, hasn’t it?

I want to know one day what it means to be your friend.

It’s the only way to become true.

-

How much was your heart saved by

the sight those guys showed you?

In my empty heart I also started to yearn

a small but new dream.

Our bond should have been enough,

but still, something is lacking…

-

Now, different from before,

there is something I want to find.

I kick straight forward through the water

towards the other side of the light, 

just a few more meters, I dive ahead…

-

Just wanna know the reason.

The relay that connects us will tell me for sure.

-

What your eyes are reflecting

is the motive that moves you.

When my world was about to close

hope was pried open.

While you are on that road that goes on and on

please tell me what you see.

For sure, it is the same sight,

the summer that is reflected in these eyes.

I think joannaestep's commentary pretty much sums it up for me: “why don't you just sing “I love Rin, I am so in love with Rin” over and over like twenty times, it'll be ABOUT THE SAME.”

For real.
