山田 優 – Fly So High

“Fly So High” by Yamada Yui is the ED theme for Blue Dragon. An anime that I wish I could say that I liked, simply because the character designs were by 鳥山 明 (Toriyama Akira). I’ve been a fan of Toriyama since I was really young, when Dr. Slump and Dragon Ball was airing on TV. Unfortunately, Blue Dragon was a bit of a disappointment. Luckily for me, his character designs for the Dragon Quest series still shines, although it can be criticized that the designs are a bit predictable.

While I didn’t think “Fly So High” worked too well as the ED for Blue Dragon, it is still a pretty good song. At the same time, nothing really stands out in the song, but the song is nicely balanced with a good pace and energy, easy melody that is not too cookie-cutter, and singing that’s really not bad. Perhaps the song really is unremarkable, and there is not much that is special about it, but it really doesn’t have much pitfalls either. The only one thing that I thought could improve was Yamada Yui’s singing. Her voice is again, not very special, and it might lack a bit of depth and emotion, but it works quite well in this case.

I guess the word to describe is that it is… well, rather plain. Yet, it is one of its merits. I don’t feel that the song would draw the listener in, but at the same time, it could hardly hurt anyone’s ears. I found that it’s a great song to be playing in the background, giving a bit of its energy to the listener.

歌詞 / Lyrics:

Hey girl そんなに沈んでないで smile
見せてみて U be fine
Hey now まだまだ始まったばかりじゃない
歩き出して here’s your life

悩んでても time goes by (yes time goes by)
仕方ない だから 振り返らないで

夢見る頃過ぎても 忘れないで 願いを
U can fly so high すべては 叶うから
その涙も痛みも あの空に 消えていく
U just try, don’t cry 誰より 輝いて
Fly so high

No way 誰かと同じような style
つまらないわ just be U
Always 自分にウソつかない事が pride
あなたらしく keep it true

なにもかも day by day (yes day by day)
変わってくことを こわがらないで

今 果てしない未来 掴んでみて その手で
U can fly so high すべては 叶うから
その祈りも思いも あの空に 届くよう
U just try, don’t cry 今こそ はばたいて
Fly so high

Oh 一人きり 涙止まらない時は
そばにいてあげる through the night
そう 誰もみな 独りでは いられない
That’s why we’re together

夢見る頃過ぎても 忘れないで 願いを
U can fly so high すべては 叶うから
その涙も痛みも あの空に 消えていく
U just try, don’t cry 誰より輝いて

Close your eyes and make a wish upon a star
Close your eyes and make a wish upon a star
どこまでも fly so high
