Upupupu…upupupu…upupupu…
AAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Kanji English
Hyahahahahahaha! Enoshima Junko-chan!

We have been waiting for you, humans like you
Hope nurtures the seed of despair
Two sides of a coin, that’s what hope and despair are like

Man, like I thought, hope is so dang boring
I just want everyone to be in despair, ya know?
Huh? I hate people who talk back!

Overwhelming despair, battling against hope
This situation gets my heart pounding and me all excited!
Upupupu…not yet, I want to see more
More of your face dyed in despair…upupupupu…
Upupupu! Upupupupu! This is the best, ain’t it?
All I’m looking for is simple despair.
I don’t have any other reason.
Cause I’m Super High School Level Despair!

We have been waiting for you, humans like you
Hope nurtures the seed of despair
Two sides of a coin, that’s what hope and despair are like

Yes, yes, that’s right, I’m already tired of all of this
of this world filled to the brim with hope
Can’t I just end it already?

Allow me to explain the plan this time
the full story of the plan to put all of humanity into despair
This school life is the climax of it

Anyway! I’m cuttin’ this shit out after all! Sick to fuckin’ death of it!
Come up with the fuckin’ answer your own damn self
YES!
Just pretend whatever shit you make up is the truth!

You’re not the only ones in despair
This despair, this punishment, is for all of humanity
Upupupupu…not yet, lemme have my fun, seeing you despair even more

Nice…those are really great faces… so tantalizing…
What a super super super super super super super super super despairingly…pleasant feeling…this is…

I haven’t ever felt hope once in my lifetime?
I’m always in despair, so that’s why I can throw life around like it’s nothing!

Overwhelming despair, battling against hope
This situation gets my heart pounding and me all excited!
Upupupu…let’s wrap this up soon, shall we?
Despair! Despair! Hope?
Upupupupu…EXTREME!

Aaaah, no more!
I’m tired of this…I’m tired of despairingly singing!
Sick of this song, of changing my personality, all of it
It’s all just so despairingly hopeless!

Hey, it is okay? Is it okay if I end this now?
I mean…this kinda song is outta fashion these days to begin with, right?
Cause it’s dull. It’s lame. It’s gross. It’s annoying.

…Ah, well then.
Alrighty, let’s hurry up and end this, kay?
I’ve got a perfectly fitting punishment for the end!

So then, let’s go all-out!
It’s Punishment Time!

Upupupu…upupupu…upupupu…
