Aka no Kakera is one of the two pieces of theme music used for the 07-Ghost series since its anime adaption by Studio DEEN. It is used for all 25 episodes of season 1, and is sung by artist Yuki Suzuki, being used as the opening piece. Its ending counterpart is Hitomi no Kotae by Noria.
Whenever you chose your final answer, You'd ended up hurting someone, Without knowing what the truth was, But in order to regain your brilliance, You will go on, crossing thousands of years.
Clenching in my hands these never to return, Fragments of scarlet I will continue to wander about, Until I find that eye which can give me a reflection of you.
I even came to harbor some empty idle thoughts, Not even finding in me the power to simply redeem my sins.
Forever losing my way around I've been fearing, Something invisible, Though the chains binding me are yet to be torn off, I struggled in my search, To crawl my way out of this unending cruel age.
The crumbling memory of the snow, Seems like it's about to melt away as I pull it close, But I will go on until I've become strong enough not to hurt anyone.
We get hurt and we hurt others in this world full of deceits, If allowed to I will open the door where you wait for me.
Holding close my memory, I will set forth on a never-ending journey.
The fragments of blue I've been searching for, Are welling up in my chest, Holding close my memory, I will set forth on a never-ending journey.
Kawaita sakebigoe ga kikoeta, "Kioku no naka no yami o hodoite!"
Itsumo saigo no kotae erande wa, Dareka o kizutsuketeta, Sou nani ga shinjitsu ka wakaranai mama ni, Kagayaki modosu tame, Kimi wa ikusen no toki o koeteiku.
Modoranai aka no kakera, Nigirishimete sa mayoitsuzuketeku, Kimi o utsushideseru sono hitomi o sagashidasu made.
Utsuro na zatsunen sae umareta, Tsugunau dake no tsuyosa mo nakute.
Itsumo arika ni mayoi sugata naki, Nanika ni obieteita, Mada karamu kusari sura chigirenai mama de, Agaite sagashiteta, Tsuzuku zankoku na toki o haiagaru.
Kuzureteku yuki no kioku, Taguriyosete toketeshimau sou de, Dare mo kizutsukenai sono tsuyosa o te ni ireru made.
Kizutsuki kizutsuketeta itsuwari dake no sekai, Yurusareru no nara kimi no matsu tobira o hiraku.
Kioku o dakishimete Owaru koto no nai tabi e to
Sagashiteta ao no kakera Mune ni afureteiku Kioku o dakishimete Owaru koto no nai tabi e to
Nanatsu no tamashii to sono hitomi o sagashidasu made.
