Producer(s)
mayuko (music, lyrics, illstu)

BackgroundEdit

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.

Both Rin and Len are "grave guarders". Rin tells how "nobody" takes care of the dead bodies in the grave there. Unlike Len, Rin is the person who will take "you" to the grave yard first, and Len will "take you there" half way there; after halfway through the graveyard, Rin will only lead thou (represents "good" people/souls) you (represents "normal" people/souls) and Len will lead the bastard (represents "bad" people/souls").

However, Rin tells that some souls still seek their bodies and wander around the graveyard. Rin told "you" that "your" family graveyard is near a swampy place where cries of frogs (gero) can be heard. Gero (frog noise) is somehow pronounced similar with "kaeru" "come back / go back". While Rin say "frogs", Len's reply simply say it straight forwardly. And so, Rin asks whether "you" want to go back to the "entrance".

As explained in Hakamairi; both Rin and Len are "grave guarders". While Rin's version tells how "nobody" takes care of the dead bodies in the grave; Len only speaks the truth with no "metaphors" at all. All the bodies are said to be forgotten in the graveyard. Len will "take you there" to your "resting place", though only bad souls considering the fact how Len calls "you" a bastard and not as formal as Rin who say "thou".

Len tells the story of the "offerings", which is a "festive night"; as disasteres start when the sun sets. Being the straight to the point version, Len told "you" that "your" family graveyard is filled with cries of "I want to go back (to their bodies)" can be heard. Len added a dark threatening voice fills that place saying "You can never go back (to your bodies)". And so, Len asks whether "you" want to move on.

Hakaokuri no Uta is a combination of two folk songs; Hakamairi (sung by Kagamine Rin) and Riimakaha (sung by Kagamine Len. 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.

TriviaEdit

  • "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.
