BackgroundEdit

Jin's third work and one of the tracks for the Kagerou Project. It is his most notable song; the original Nico Nico upload has over three million views.

The story behind the song revolves around a boy, Hibiya, and a girl, Hiyori. On August 15, Hibiya witnesses Hiyori running out into the street to retrieve a black cat and getting hit by a truck. The heat apparently mocks him in his daze, and he blacks out. He wakes up and it is August 14. He tells Hiyori about his strange dream that took place in the park they were walking in. Just as she steps in front of him, a pole falls from the sky and pierces through her. The heat once again laughs at him, and, before he blacks out, he notices Hiyori seems to be smiling as she dies. This process repeats for decades, the same two days happening again and again. Finally, Hibiya decides to take action and pushes Hiyori out of the way of the truck and is killed himself. In the end, it shows Hiyori was also caught in the loop. It turns out that she had been trying to save Hibiya from death, so the cycle still continues on.

This song is featured on Jin's albums MEKAKUCITY V'S, Mekakucity Actors, and Mekaku City Days. It is also featured on the compilation albums EXIT TUNES PRESENTS Vocalodream feat. 初音ミク, HATSUNE ROCK feat.初音ミク, VOCAROCK collection 3 feat. 初音ミク, ボーカロイド超ベスト-impacts-, Hatsune Miku 5th Anniversary Best ~memories~, Hatsune Miku 5th Anniversary Best ~impacts~, and VOCA NICO☆PARTY.

LyricsEdit

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
8月15日の午後12時半くらいのこと Hachigatsu juugonichi no gogo juunijihan kurai no koto
天気が良い Tenki ga ii
病気になりそうなほど眩しい日差しの中 Byouki ni narisou na hodo mabushii hizashi no naka
することも無いから君と 駄弁 (だべ)っていた Suru koto mo nai kara kimi to dabetteita

「でもまぁ夏は嫌いかな」猫を撫でながら "Demo maa natsu wa kirai kana" neko o nadenagara
君はふてぶてしくつぶやいた Kimi wa futebuteshiku tsubuyaita
あぁ、逃げ出した猫の後を追いかけて Aa, nigedashita neko no ato o oikakete
飛び込んでしまったのは赤に変わった信号機 Tobikonde shimatta no wa aka ni kawatta shingouki

バッと通ったトラックが君を轢きずって鳴き叫ぶ Batto toota TORAKKU (truck) ga kimi o hikizutte nakisakebu
血飛沫の色、君の香りと混ざり合ってむせ返った Chi shibuki no iro, kimi no kaori to mazariatte musekaetta
嘘みたいな 陽炎 (かげろう)が「嘘じゃないぞ」って 嗤 (わら)ってる Uso mitai na kagerou ga "Uso ja nai zo" tte waratteru
夏の水色、かき回すような蝉の 音 (ね)に全て 眩 (くら)んだ Natsu no mizu-iro, kakimawasu you na semi no ne ni subete kuranda

目を覚ました時計の針が鳴り響くベッドで Me o samashita tokei no hari ga narihibiku BEDDO (bed) de
今は何時? Ima wa nanji?
8月14日の午前12時過ぎ位を指す Hachigatsu juuyokka no gozen juuniji sugi kurai o sasu
やけに 煩 (うるさ)い蝉の声覚えていた Yake ni urusai semi no koe oboeteita

でもさぁ、少し不思議だな。 Demo saa, sukoshi fushigi da na.
同じ公園で昨日見た夢を思い出した Onaji kouen de kinou mita yume o omoidashita
「もう今日は帰ろうか」道に抜けた時 "Mou kyou wa kaerou ka" michi ni nuketa toki
周りの人は皆上を見上げ口を開けていた Mawari no hito wa minna ue o miage kuchi o aketeita

落下してきた鉄柱が君を貫いて突き刺さる Rakka shite kita tecchuu ga kimi o tsuranuite tsukisasaru
劈 (つんざ)く悲鳴と風鈴の音が木々の隙間で空廻り Tsunzaku himei to fuurin no oto ga kigi no sukima de karamawari
ワザとらしい陽炎が「夢じゃないぞ」って嗤ってる Wazatorashii kagerou ga "Yume ja nai zo" tte waratteru
眩む視界に君の横顔、笑っているような気がした Kuramu shikai ni kimi no yokogao, waratteiru you na kigashita

何度世界が眩んでも陽炎が嗤って奪い去る。 Nando sekai ga kurande mo kagerou ga waratte ubaisaru.
繰り返して何十\年。もうとっくに気が付いていたろ。 Kurikaeshite nanjuunen. mou tokku ni ki ga tsuiteitaro.
こんなよくある話なら結末はきっと1つだけ。 Konna yoku aru hanashi nara ketsumatsu wa kitto hitotsu dake.
繰り返した夏の日の向こう。 Kurikaeshita natsu no hi no mukou.

バッと押しのけ飛び込んだ、瞬間トラックにぶち当たる Batto oshinoke tobikonda, shunkan TORAKKU (truck) ni buchiataru
血飛沫の色、君の瞳と軋む体に乱反射して Chi shibuki no iro, kimi no hitomi to kishimu karada ni ranhansha shite
文句ありげな陽炎に「ざまぁみろよ」って笑ったら Monku arige na kagerou ni "Zamaa miro yo" tte warattara
実によく在る夏の日のこと。 Jitsu ni yoku aru natsu no hi no koto.
そんな何かがここで終わった。 Sonna nanika ga koko de owatta.

目を覚ました8月14日のベッドの上 Me o samashita hachigatsu juuyokka no BEDDO (bed) no ue
少女はただ Shoujo wa tada
「またダメだったよ」と一人猫を抱きかかえてた "Mata dame datta yo" to hitori neko o dakikakaeteta
