Namikimichi no Koi

Namikimichi no Koi (並木道の恋) Love on the Tree-Lined Road, is a song that only appears in “Summer 1993 – Gaiden Dark Kingdom Fukkatsu Hen” and its revised edition.  It likely appeared in the “Super Spring Festival”. Minako sings this to explain the story of her first love, it seems to reference to the eighth chapter of Codename: Sailor V, “Namikimichi no Koi – Taabo Zenkai Baribari! Hen”

Japanese

若葉の春 並木道で
初めて あのひとを見た時は
胸の奥が キュンと鳴って
思わず立ちすくみ 見送ったわ
小麦色に 焼けた夏に
月面宙返り 見せてくれ
思い出の 並木道で
秋の日あびながら 見つめ合った
それでも それでも あのひとは
なんにも 言っては くれなかった
こんなに こんなに 好きなのに
卒業してった わたしの初恋

Romaji

Wakaba no haru namikimichi de
Hajimete ano hito wo mita toki wa
Mune no oku ga kyun to natte
Omowazu tachisukumi miokutta wa
Komugiiro ni yaketa natsu ni
Getsumen chuugaeri misetekure
Omoide no namikimichi de
Aki no hi abinagara mitsumeatta
Soredemo soredemo ano hito wa
Nannimo itte wa kurenakatta
Konna ni konna ni suki nano ni
Sotsugyou shitetta watashi no hatsukoi

English

The fresh verdure of spring, on the tree-lined road
It was the first time I saw him…
My heart suddenly tightened for a moment
Instinctively, I froze and watched him pass by
In that summer that shone gold
I saw him perform a moonsault
On that tree-lined road of memories
We gazed at each other as we basked in the autumn sun
But still, but still, that person…
Never said a single thing to me
Even still, even still, I love him
Then he graduated… my first love…
