"My Most Precious Treasure" (一番の宝物, Ichiban no Takaramono) is a song by various artists from the Angel Beats! franchise. Three separate renditions of this song exist: Yui's version, the original version, and Yui's final version. Yui's version was used as an ending theme for Episode 10 of the anime series. It was released as an album track for the album "Keep the Beats" and is sung by Girls Dead Monster feat. LiSA. The original version was played in the final episode and is sung by karuta. The song was released in the Angel Beats! Original Sound Track. A third version of this song, "Yui's final version," was released as a separate single at the termination of the GDM project and was again sung by LiSA.

BackgroundEdit

Episode 10 and 13 each uses "My Most Precious Treasure" as the ending theme, but the lyrics in each version are made to sound slightly different so that they would closely match the theme of each episode. The Episode 10 version (Yui's ver.) is a love song that tells of a girl who must be separated from a loved one (most likely a boyfriend). Even though the girl (i.e., the singer) is saddened by the potential loneliness of this parting, she nevertheless makes up her mind to depart out of her own will, carrying with her only the memories from past experiences, which she will retain as her "most precious treasure." While this song plays in the background at the end of Episode 10, we see on the screen a few stills of Hinata, Yui and Yui's mother in a hypothetical scenario (perhaps depicting their next lives). In this imagined scenario, we see that Hinata becomes friends with Yui and eventually begins to care for her.

The Episode 13 version (the original version) seems to focus on similar themes but places stronger emphasis on the general aspects of life, in all a positive one that seems to be the central unifying theme of the series. This version is again told from the perspective of someone who must part ways with his/her past experiences and move onto a new path. Likewise, the singer decides that he/she will only move forward, despite the potential losses that might accompany this decision. Compared with the Episode 10 version, the song focuses on a broader range of themes including friendship and strife. For instance, at the end the singer decides that no matter how terrible life might seem, he/she must make an effort to stay alive, and that memories of past love/friendships will always stay with him/her as the "most precious treasure." The themes explored in this song are reminiscent of what the scenario writers had intended to depict as the "Rebels Against God," a signature alias of the SSS. While the song plays in the ending credits of the Final Episode, the SSS cast members gradually disappear one by one, suggesting that they have at last fulfilled their purposes in life and that their fight against god has at last come to an end.

English TranslationEdit

Kao wo awashitara kenkashite bakari
Sore mo ii omoide datta

If we see each other’s faces, we always fight.
That’s a good memory too.

Kimi ga oshietekuretanda mou kowakunai
Donna fujiyuu demo shiawase wa tsukameru dakara

You taught me so much; I'm not scared anymore.
I have to let go of these hands that were holding me.

Hitori demo yuku yo tatoe tsurakute mo
Kimi to mita yume wa kanarazu motteku yo
Kimi to ga yokatta hoka no dare demo nai

Demo mezameta asa kimi wa inainda ne

Even if I’m alone, I’ll go, even if it’s difficult.
I’ll definitely bring the dream I had with you.
I’m glad it was with you, and nobody else.
But when I woke up in the morning, you weren’t there.

Zutto asondereru sonna ki ga shiteta
Ki ga shiteita dake wakatteru
Umaretekita koto mou koukai wa shinai
Matsuri no ato mitai samishii kedo sorosoro ikou

We’d be able to play forever; that’s the feeling I got.
That was just a feeling I got, that was it, I know.
I don’t regret that I was born anymore.
Like the end of a festival, it’s lonely, but we’ve got to go pretty soon.

Doko made mo yuku yo koko de shitta koto
Shiawase to iu yume o kanaete miseru yo
Kimi to hanarete mo donna ni tookunatte mo
Atarashii asa ni atashi wa ikiru yo

I’ll go anywhere with the things I learned here.
I’ll show you that I can make the dream called happiness come true.
Even if I’m separated from you, no matter how far away we go.
I’m going to live in a new morning.

Hitori demo yuku yo shi ni takunatte mo
Koe ga kikoeru yo shinde wa ikenai to
Tatoe tsurakute mo samishisa ni naite mo
Kokoro no oku ni wa nukumori o kanjiru yo

Even if I’m alone, I’ll go, even if I want to die.
I can hear your voice, saying I mustn’t die.
Even if it’s difficult, even if I cry from loneliness
I can feel warmth from deep inside my heart.

Megutte nagarete toki wa utsuroida
Mou nani ga atta ka omoidasenai kedo
Me o tojitemireba dare ka no warai koe
Naze ka sore ga ima ichiban no takaramono
Going around and flowing, time is ever-changing.
I can’t remember what happened anymore, but
If I try and close my eyes, I can hear someone’s laughing voice
For some reason, now, that is my most precious treasure

Lyrics: Episode 13 VersionEdit

English TranslationEdit

Suso ga nureta nara
Kawaku no mateba ii
Mizuoto wo tatete haneta

Whenever the tips of my clothes got wet,
I was alright just waiting for them to dry.
I jumped wholeheartedly to the sound of the water.

Kimi ga oshiete kureta n da Mou kowaku nai
Nigitte ite kureta kono te wo hanasanakya dame da

You taught me that; I’m not afraid anymore.
No matter how fettered I am, I can grasp happiness. That’s why…

Hitori demo yuku yo Tatoe tsurakute mo
Minna de mita yume wa Kanarazu motteku yo
Minna to ga ii na Minna to ga yokatta
Demo mezameta asa Dare mo inai n da ne

I'll go by myself, even if it looks painful,
I'll always carry on the dream I had with everyone.
Being with everyone is so nice; Being with everyone was so wonderful.
But when I woke up in the morning, no one was there.

Mou furikaette mo dare no kage mo nai

Mizutamari dake ga hikatta
Ikiteku koto sore wa tachimukatte iku koto
Sore ga wakatta nara ato wa fumidasu yuuki dake

Even if I don't turn around anymore, I know I won't see anyone's reflections.
Only the puddles were shining.
Living is the same thing as fighting.
If I understood that, I would have only the courage to advance onward.

Doko made mo yuku yo Koko de shitta koto
Shiawase to iu yume wo kanaete miseru yo
Minna to hanarete mo Donna ni tooku natte mo
Atarashii asa ni Kono Boku wa ikiru yo

I'll go anywhere, you all know that.
I'll show you all that I can grant your dreams of happiness.
Even if I'm separated from everyone, no matter how far,
I'll be born with the new morning.

Hitori demo yuku yo Shinitaku natte mo
Koe ga kikoeru yo Shinde wa ikenai to
Tatoe tsurakute mo Yami ni tozasarete mo
Kokoro no oku ni wa Akari ga tomotteru yo

I'll go by myself, even if I'm on the verge of dying,
I can hear your voices; I mustn't die.
Even if it looks painful, even if I'm locked in darkness,
Deep in my heart the light is burning.

Megutte nagarete Toki wa utsuroida
Mou nani ga atta ka Omoidasenai kedo
Me wo tojite mireba Minna no waraigoe
Naze ka sore ga ima ichiban no takaramono

Time changed as it ebbed and flowed.
I can't remember what happened anymore but,
If I try and close my eyes I can hear everyone's laughter.
Somehow that's now my most precious treasure.
