Romaji: Hakaokuri no Uta
English: Grave-Sending Song
|Uploaded January 16, 2010|
|Singer(s): Kagamine Rin and Kagamine Len|
|mayuko (music, lyrics, illstu)|
Rin's Hakamairi was uploaded first on January 17th while Len's "answer/reply song" to Hakamairi was uploaded not too long after on January 21st. A day after Len's Riimakaha was uploaded, the song Hakaokuri no Uta was uploaded, which is the combination of the two songs.
There are two point of views in the songs (Rin and Len's point of views), they're against each other, though they speak of only one topic; sending "you" to the grave. Although there are some parts where the lyrics are the same, most of the lyrics are against each other. Even so there's only 1 plot in the song. Rin's version uses many metaphors while Len's version is down to earth, "straight forward" with no metaphors what so ever.
This is Mayuko's most notable work; and her first work to have reached Nico Hall of Fame (exceeding 100,000 views). Most of Mayuko's works involves Japanese folk stories; Hakamairi and Riimakaha are no exception.
送墓唄 (Hakaokuri no Uta)
- "Hakamairi" written backwards is "Ri(i)makaha"
- When earphones/headphones are used, Rin's Hakamairi can be heard on the right and Len's Riimakaha can be heard on the left. No effects are used whatsoever; only two songs played at the same time.
- In the original videos, Rin could be seen standing on the left in Hakamairi; while Len could be seen standing on the right in Riimakaha. In Hakaokuri no Uta, Rin stands on the right while Len on the left. This may have a connection on how Rin's voice can be heard from the right and Len's voice can be heard from the left.
- On February 15th this Hakaokuri no Uta reached 100,000 views; making it Mayuko's first work to reach Nico Hall of Fame.
