LyricsEdit

I’ll be reborn right here, right now
I’ll go beyond the sky I looked up at
I had hopes held tightly in the palm of my hand

I realized that all the scenery expanding before my eyes
Was really quite small

For example, if I were to meet you by chance,
The world would be turned upside-down so easily

It’s full of things I don’t understand, and it makes me laugh
It’s proof that I can still keep going further

And I’ll bring these feelings with me that can’t be surrendered -
The ones I chased after in the far-off distance
I’ll aim for a peak that nobody knows and put everything on the line

So I won’t overlook the kind of special thing
That’s hidden in what’s commonplace

For example, if I were to try changing my point of view,
I’d be like a different animal altogether

I don’t have to exaggerate it. On that day, at that place,
I’ll put out the best thing I can without putting on airs

I cut through without far,
Seeking new scenery
I don’t need to give it meaning or some kind of logic - I’ll just do as I please

While basking in sweet days and bitter days,
We’re coming to realized and learn
There are things that only we can do

And I’ll bring these feelings with me that can’t be surrendered -
The ones I chased after in the far-off distance
I’ll stumble upon a peak that nobody knows now

I’ll be reborn countless times
I’ll go beyond the sky I looked up at
I had hopes held tightly in the palm of my hand

umarekawaru ima koko de
aoideita sora koeteiku
nigirishimeta te no hira no sono naka ni kibou ga attan da

me no mae ni hirogaru keshiki zenbu ga

nigirishimeta te no hira no sono naka ni kibou ga attan da

生まれ変わる 今ここで
仰いでいた 空越えていく
握り締めた掌のその中に希望があったんだ

目の前に広がる景色全部が
実はちっぽけだったと気付いた

例えば君と出会えば簡単に
世界はひっくり返る

知らないことだらけで 笑えてくるな
まだまだ先に行ける証だ

追いかけてた 遥か遠く
ゆずれない思いも連れて
誰も知らない頂を目指していく 全て懸けて

ありふれたものに隠れてるような
特別を見逃さないように

例えば見る角度を変えてみれば
違う生き物みたい

大層でなくていいよ 見栄は張らずに
その日その場で出せる最高を

切り開いた 恐れずに
新しい景色求めて
意味付けとか理屈なんか要らないんだ 思うままに

甘い日を苦い日を浴びながら
僕ら 気付いていく 学んでいく
僕らしかできないことを

追いかけてた 遥か遠く
ゆずれない思いも連れて
誰も知らない頂につまずいて 今

生まれ変わる 何度でも
仰いでいた 空越えていく
握り締めた掌のその中に希望があったんだ

  • In Episode 2: A bowl of rice with chicken curry served on a festive red plate. The plate is rotating clockwise.
  • In Episode 3: White rice with squid pieces and squid ink served on a beige plate with a yellow rim. The plate is rotating counter-clockwise.
  • In Episode 4: White rice with meat, potatoes and carrot stew served on a dark brown plate. The plate is rotating counter-clockwise.
  • In Episode 5: White rice with pork and beans served on a white plate. The plate is rotating counter-clockwise.
  • In Episode 6: Buttered rice with mixed vegetables and gravy served on a light blue plate. The plate is rotating counter-clockwise
  • In Episode 7: White rice with mabo tofu served on a black plate. The plate is rotating counter-clockwise.
  • In Episode 8: The dishes from episodes 3, 2, and 1 are shown rotating while the camera pans from right to left. The middle dish is rotating clockwise, while the dishes next to it are rotating counter-clockwise.
  • In Episode 9: The dishes from episodes 1, 4, and 5 are shown rotating while the camera pans from left to right. The middle dish is rotating clockwise, while the dishes next to it are rotating counter-clockwise.

  • In Episode 11: The dish from episode 1 is rotating counter-clockwise, while the dishes from episodes 2 through 7 are arranged in a counter-clockwise around it. While these dishes are not rotating, they spin around the first dish while the camera zooms out.
  • In Episode 12: The layout from Episode 11 is repeated, although there are much more than seven dishes. Each dish is each spinning in a random direction while the camera zooms out.
  • In Episode 13: An empty white dish, with residual brown sauce and a golden spoon on it, is rotating counter-clockwise.
  • In Episode 14: A bread bowl with stew and eggs served on a white plate. The plate is rotating counter-clockwise.

TriviaEdit

  • Sōma Yukihira sings a version of the opening theme during the welcome party in Episode 4.
  • A slow, melancholic instrumental version of the chorus plays in Episode 11, when Megumi Tadokoro berates Soma for risking his expulsion on her behalf.
  • The full song plays in Episode 24, starting with Erina Nakiri's recollection of the fragrance of Sōma's curry and lasting for the rest of the episode. At some point, Fumio Daimidō is also depicted as humming to the song.
