It was introduced in the Episode 2 of the anime and was used through Episode 14 (it was also used as ending in Episode 1 when it was released in Blu-Ray) excluding Episode 12 which used the special ending theme SMILE -You & Me-. The song is later featured as an insert song near the final moments of the finale of the anime.

Japanese English Translation
Dear My Friend
Every day & night always be with you
Dear My Friend
Every day & night always be with you
Dear My Friend
Every day & night always be with you
Dear My Friend
Every day & night always be with you
Hanashite mo madamada tarinai mama
Yuuyake ga machi o someteyuku
No matter how much we talk, it’s not enough for me.
The sunset dyes the town in it’s colors.
Omou you ni nakanaka ikanai... tte
kizuitara issho ni naiteita
It doesn’t go as I hope...
before we realize it, we were both crying.
koi mo yume mo hana mo niji mo kaze mo
zenbu tsukamou yo
Love, dreams, flowers, rainbows, and the wind,
let’s seize them all!
daijoubu!
genki dashite watashi ga soba ni iru kara
kyou no misu kuyamu yori ima norikoete
daijoubu!
mayowanaide mada minu mirai e to mukatte
zutto aruiteyukou
Don’t worry!
Cheer up, I’m here with you.
Rather than worrying over today’s mistakes, overcome them.
Don’t worry!
Don’t falter, face towards the unseen future,
let’s always walk forward.
Every day & night always be with you Every day & night always be with you
