Analysis

もう二度と晴れなくたっていい

もう (anymore) 二度 (twice) と means “ever again”. It’s used with a verb negative form to show that it’s not going to happen again.

晴れなくたって means “even if the sky doesn’t clear up”. 晴れない is the negative-form of the verb 晴れる meaning “(the sky) clears up”. To make this grammar, you just need to remove the い in the end of the negative-form and attach くたって.

いい means “fine” so もう二度と晴れなくたっていい directly means “it’s fine even if the sky doesn’t clear up ever again” which can be rephrased as “the sky doesn’t have to clear up ever again” or “Who cares if we don’t see the sunshine ever again?”

青空よりも俺は陽菜がいい

AよりもBがいい means “B is better than A”. よりも indicates the object to compare with and いい with the particle が is used to express one’s preference or hope, so it can be translated as “one likes B more than A” or “one wants B more than A”.

The A is 青空 meaning “blue sky”, the B is 陽菜 which is her first name, and the topic is 俺 meaning “I” used by men as the topic particle は is attached.

So 青空よりも俺は陽菜がいい means “I like Hina more than blue sky” or “I want you more than any blue sky”.

天気なんて狂ったままでいいんだ

天気 means “weather”.

なんて means “something like” which is used to express the speaker’s negative feelings towards the preceding word. So it shows the weather is not important for him.

Verb Ta-Form followed by まま is used to express a certain situation remaining the same. 狂った is the ta-form of 狂う meaning “to go crazy”, so 狂ったまま expresses the unchanged situation after going crazy.

Noun でいい means “fine with something”.

んだ is used when persuading someone. It could be used in the end of all these sentences but it would be repetitive so it’s only used in the last sentence.

So 天気なんて狂ったままでいいんだ means “it’s fine with the weather being crazy”, “I don’t care about the crazy weather” or “The weather can go crazy”.

Sentences

Hodaka’s Quote

Who cares if we don’t see the sunshine ever again? I want you more than any blue sky! The weather can go crazy!

〜なくたっていい (don’t have to)

You don’t have to think so seriously. Take it easy.
If you don’t want to study, you don’t have to.
You don’t have to listen to what he says.

NOTE

When you want to say “it’s fine even if one DOES something” (= one can do something), use a verb ta-form and attach っていい which is more colloquial than 〜てもいい.
It’s ok even if it rains.
more colloquial than 雨が降ってもいい

AよりもBがいい (B is better than A)

I want coffee more than tea in the morning.
I prefer living in the countryside over the city.
There is a lot of traffic, so bike commuting is better than car.

NOTE

  • も can be omitted as it’s only used for emphasis.
  • AよりもBの方がいい emphasizes “comparison”.

Verb Ta-Form + まま (expresses a certain situation remaining the same)

The clock remained broken for a long time.
You can leave the door open.
Don’t sleep with the lights on.

NOTE

It can also be used as a conjunction meaning “while doing something” or “in a certain state”.

Noun + でいい (fine with …)

What do you want to drink? Are you fine with water?
Casual fashion for tomorrow’s party is fine.
It’s not urgent so later is fine.
