Gravitation is the first opening theme of the third season of the Toaru Majutsu no Index anime adaptation.

It is the first opening theme for the Toaru series performed by Kurosaki Maon after Kawada Mami's retirement.


Kawada Mami, despite being in retirement, provided lyrics, while music was composed by Nakazawa Tomoyuki. The proper single release of the song will be on November 21, 2018.[1]

The single release features the full version of the opening theme. Furthermore, the Limited First Edition CD and DVD versions will have the music video and "Making of" music video of the single. Finally, the Limited First Edition Anime CD and DVD versions will have the short version of the music video and the creditless version of the Toaru Majutsu no Index III opening.[1]

By order of appearance:


  • The opening foreshadows several events that would occur in the timeline


Japanese English Translation
Susumu time bomb akatsuki de
Chikyuu wa kyou mo mawari Hurry Up!
Hitogoto ni nante dekinai no ni ne.
I'm carrying a ticking time bomb
The Earth keeps on turning, so hurry up!
Doesn't it care about it?
Fui ni yaburareu joushiki
fumei eye misadame to sadame
ikidoori no ame ni nureta.
Suddenly common sense is violated
One fate intertwines with another
And the rain of resentment drenches them all
Guuzen ginen kimagure no naka de amasa wo mashiteku
atsui kodou nagarekomu come now everyone
But why? Doubt and carelessness have grave consequences
A hot pulse signals the incoming cannonball
koko ni ikiyou sei amashi subete
negai no imi mo iro wo kaeta
Tsukuritai kokoro okufukaku a a kanjiru
Ichizu na
toda hitotsu
Ready to hold.
Everything is drawn to this place
It goes beyond the meaning and intent of our desires
My heart wants to stay strong
I feel it deep inside me
With all my soul, this one thing
I'm ready to hold onto
