Monday in Music – Climber by Galileo Galilei

Series: Haikyuu
Artist: Galileo Galilei
Type: Ending

“Climber” performed by the Japanese rock band Galileo Galilei, was used as the first ending for the 2nd season of the sport anime Haikyuu!!. The single released in 2015 can be found on the last album the group produced before disbanding in 2016, Sea and the Darkness.

This ending is my favorite anime ending song, I love everything about it the bass riff in the beginning combined with the drum sound so great, but most of all, I love how the song build up to the chorus.
And the lyric are full of hope.

We were climbing our mountain,
And more than just time was getting worn down.
But once we learn of freedom, we’ll wish to fly,
And take notice of this overflowing feeling.

I feel like I’ll reach it any second – it shines brightly as the realization comes,
Spreading out before our eyes: A scenery meant for us alone!

My lungs can keep breathing,
For as long as it takes to get up and back down;
Even if I finally arrive, I’ll say, “One more time!”
Just keep aiming for the top!

Forgetting all doubt and stepping on in,
We fly straight ahead,
Toward that moment grasped by our hands,
As they swam fitfully through open air! That moment…

This emotion builds every hundred double-timed steps we take;
We try to keep it from dying out… from crumbling away…
If we became aware of ourselves, we’ll lose our ability to fly
And that overflowing feeling will get tied up inside.

Toward a sun too bright, inviting our glares,
And an increasingly strict scenery meant for us alone…

My lungs keep breathing,
For as long as it takes to reach the sky;
Facing the sunrise, I’ll say, “One more time!”
Just keeping aiming for the top!

Even if I halt my progress, I’ll keep marking time,
Waiting for a chance to fly straight through.
Thrusting out my demanding fingertips,
As they scrape away at that moment! That moment…

Right now, we gotta be climbers!

Give me that moment!

Give me that moment!

Give me that moment!

Before my eyes,

Are opened,

Give me,

The kind of moment,

That will,

Open my eyes!
