sugar sweet nightmare is the fifth opening theme of the Bakemonogatari anime. It was performed by Yui Horie, who voices Tsubasa Hanekawa. Although originally planned for the TV broadcast, it could only be featured on the home media release of Tsubasa Cat: Part 1, Part 3, Part 4 & Part 5.

BackgroundEdit

"sugar sweet nightmare" has a tempo of 166 BPM, and has a 4/4 time signature.

The song reflects Tsubasa's feelings towards a certain person, which she describes as unstoppable, yet restrained deep inside. It also points out that most people's impressions of her are not true, and that she is willing to wait for her "dearest person" despite not being able to say her true feelings to that person directly.

Unlike the more upbeat and lively songs used in the anime series, "sugar sweet nightmare" has a more dramatic mood, with its quick percussion beats combined with the piano and violin.

Opening CreditsEdit

The opening credits used to accompany the song reflects Tsubasa's wish to "go on a trip when she graduates" and, unlike the other theme songs used in the anime series, features a live-action version of Tsubasa posing in a number of locations that resemble that of key settings in the series. Throughout the credits, names of countries are shown in a split second (United Arab Emirates, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, Argentina, Romania, and Portugal), mixed within the live action actress' appearances.

At the chorus, a particular road map is drawn over parts of the female anatomy, particularly the hands, feet and torso, followed with still shots of a woman's lower torso.

Throughout the credits, the triangular pyramid is a consistent theme, and is often used to depict Tsubasa's "cat ears", which manifest when she transforms into Black Hanekawa.

恋しくて
愛しくて
止まらない
せめて この心は
君のもとへ..

君が思うほど
天使じゃないから

きらめく気持ちは
魑魅魍魎

いっそのこと もぅ
悪魔になれたら

つぶやく言葉は
意味朦朧

あの日のままで ずっと待ってる
あきらめたまま 今も待ってるの

云いたくて
云えなくて
届かない
こんな そばにいても
ねぇ どうすればいいの?

恋しくて
愛しくて
止まらない
せめて この心は
君のもとへ..



Koishiku te itoshiku te, tomara nai
Semete kono kokoro wa kimi no moto he...

Kimi ga omou hodo tenshi ja nai kara
Kirameku kimochi wa chimi mouryou

Issouno koto mou akuma ni nare tara
Tsubuyaku kotoba wa imi mourou

Ano hi no mama de zutto matteru
Akiramete mama ima no matteruno

Iitakute, ienakute
Todoka nai, konna soba ni itemo
Nee dou sureba iino?

Koishikute, itoshikute, tomaranai
Semete kono kokoro wa Kimi no moto he...



Missing you, loving you, I'll never stop.
At least my heart will go to you...

Since I'm not quite the angel that you think I am
My shimmering feeling are evil spirits

If I could just end up turning into a demon
The words I utter would be cryptic

Just as I was that day, I've been waiting
Still without hope, I'm still waiting now

Wanting to tell you but not able to tell you
Unable to reach you even though you're so near
Tell me, what I should do?

Missing you, loving you, I'll never stop.
At least my heart will go to you...
