"FREEDOM" by Blue Encount is the second opening theme song of the BANANA FISH anime. Two versions of the single were released: the regular edition, containing only a CD, and an alternate version that includes a DVD. The DVD version also included a PlayPASS code that was good until November 20, 2019, allowing anyone who purchased the physical album to access it digitally and listen to it on their smartphone. First edition copies of both single versions included a limited release sticker.

The studio live footage of "FREEDOM" was included on the DVD of Blue Encount's 2019 album Polaris. The CD track was re-released on their 2020 album Q.E.D, and the music video of FREEDOM was included on the DVD of Q.E.D's alternate version.

"FREEDOM" is the opening theme song from episode 14-24 of the anime.

Rōmaji[edit | edit source]

I've been ignoring everyone
I've been wandering around
I've been deceived by everything, at the time
Then you appeared in front of me
You ignited my pale heart
We've been looking for each other
From now on

Save you

Wow
Saigen nai gisei wo
Wow
Mourou to shita risou wo
Wow
Mou muda ni shinai you ni to
Kanashimi wo kirikiza nda

Get away from me
Get away from dark nightmare
Just now, chip at your heart
We just fight for freedom
Ubaiatte yogoshiatte
Soredemo mamoritakute
I will share your fate 

Iki wo suru tabi hai ni tamatta
Ikiba no nai iradachi
Itomo tayasuku fumi ni jirareru
Doukei no hi wa moe tsuzuketeru

Wow
Kizen to shita honshou de
Wow
Madamada agaku nda

Get away from me
Get away from dark nightmare
Just now, chip at my heart
I hold tight your freedom
Shinogiatte motomeatte
Nuguenai ureitachi to aragau

Hitori ja nai
To kizuketa boku no "kinou" mo
Kizu darake demo tachiagatta kimi no "kyou" mo
Ikitakute mo ikirenakatta dareka no "asu" mo
Nidoto hanasanai you ni arukou

Wow
Saigen nai gisei wo
Mourou to shita risou wo
Mou muda ni shinai you ni to
Kanashimi wo kirikiza nda

Get away from me
Get away from dark nightmare
Just now, chip at your heart
We just fight for freedom
Ubaiatte yogoshiatte
Soredemo mamoritakute
Get away from me
Get away from dark nightmare
Yeah
We don't want to go through that again
Toki wa michita hajimari no kane ga naru
