In Ano Hana's opening theme "Aoi Shiori", the word misanga was mentioned a few times.
Ichipeeji mekuru tenohira kuchibiru de musunda misanga
Nee kyou mo kawaranai kyou de ame fureba denwa mo dekiru yo
Sou yatte ima wa kimi no hou e (itsu no ma ni ka kireta misanga)
Oshitsukeru boku no yasashisa wo (demo nazeka ienai mama da yo)
Hontou douka shiteru mitai
My hand that turns to the next page, and the misanga I fastened with my lips...
Hey, today is today, and that won't change; if it rains, we can still talk on the phone.
In that way, I now push (Before I knew it, the misanga came off,)
My kindness in your direction. (But for some reason, I can't say it.)
There really must be something wrong with me.
The translation didn't give the exact meaning of the word "misanga" so I was wondering what it is.
