BackgroundEdit

"ray" is a song by Japanese rock band BUMP OF CHICKEN. It was released in two versions; the first, solely featuring the band, was uploaded to YouTube on March 6, 2014. The band had used new approaches when developing the song's lyrics, melody and arrangement, and in an effort to present the song in a more unconventional and progressive way than usual; thus, six days later, an alternate version of the song featuring Hatsune Miku was released. It reached one million views within three days.

Crypton Future Media, Inc. created the system for filming and recording the song PV, and also built a new 3D model of Miku, titled the 14 Model. The music video was filmed in real time, without any CG added during post-production. Prior to the release of the song and PV, Crypton uploaded a making-of video to its HatsuneMiku channel. A second behind-the-scenes video was released on March 13.

Atsunori Toshi (A4A), the video director, had previously worked on Miku's footage for the VOCALOID opera "The End", in addition to a collaboration between Hatsune Miku and Louis Vuitton. Miku's tuning was carried out by kz, a veteran Vocaloid producer. kz has become infamous among some fan circles because of his heavy reliance on autotune and his general lack of tuning skills, but he was likely chosen for the project because he and Bump of Chicken are signed to the same label, Toy's Factory.

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
お別れしたのはもっと owakare shita nowa motto
前の事だったような maeno koto datta youna
新しい光は封じ込めて kanashii hikari wa fuuji komete
踵磨り減らしたんだ kakato suri herashitan da

uwo-oh

君といた時は見えた kimi to ita tokiwa mieta
今は見えなくなった imawa mienaku natta
透明な彗星をボンヤリと toomeina suisei wo bon'yari to
でもそれだけ探している demo sore dake sagashite iru

しょっちゅう唄を歌ったよ shocchu uta wo utatta yo
その時だけのメロディーを sono toki dake no merodii wo
寂しくなんか無かったよ sabishiku nanka katta yo
ちゃんと寂しくなれたから chanto sabishiku nareta kara

yeah

いつまでどこまでなんて itsumade dokomade nante
正常か異常かなんて seijo ka ijo ka nante
考える暇も無いほど kangaeru hima mo nai hodo
歩くのは大変だ arukuno wa taihen da

悲しいほうがずっと良いよ kanashii houga zutto iiyo
誤魔化して笑ってくよ gomakashite waratteku yo
大丈夫だあの痛みは daijobu da ano itami wa
忘れたって消えやしない wasuretatte kie ya shinai

理想で作った道を risou de tsukutta michi o
現実が塗り替えてくよ genjitsu ga nuri kaeteku yo
思い出はその奇跡の上で omoide wa sono kiseki no ue de
輝きになって残ってる kagayaki ni natte nokotteru

uwo-oh

お別れしたのはなんで owakare shita no wa nande
何の為だったんだろな nan no tame dattan darou na
悲しい光が僕の影を kanashii hikari ga boku no kage o
前に長く伸ばしてる mae ni nagaku no bashiteru

時々熱が出るよ tokidoki netsu ga deru yo
時間あるとき眠るよ jikan ga aru toki nemuru yo
夢だと分かるその中で yume da to wakaru sono naka de
君と会ってからまた行こう kimi to atte kara matta ikou

yeah

晴天とは程遠い seiten to wa hodo tooi
終わらない暗闇にも owaranai kurayami ni mo
星を思い浮かべたなら hoshi o omoi yukabeta nara
すぐ銀河の中だ sugu ginga no naka da

あまり泣かなくなっても amari naka naku natte mo
靴を新しくしても kutsu o atariku shite mo
大丈夫だあの痛みは daijoubu da ano itami wa
忘れたって消えやしない wasuretatte kie ya shinai

伝えたかったことがきっと tsutaetakatta koto ga kitto
あったんだろうな attan darou na
恐らくありきたりなんだろうけど osoraku arikitari nandarou kedo
こんなにも… konna nimo

お別れした事は owakare shita koto wa
出会った事と繋がっている deatta koto to tsunagatte iru
あの透明な彗星は ano toumeina suisei wa
透明だから無くならない toumei dakara nakunaranai

丸バツ三角どれかなんて maru batsu sankaku doreka nante
皆と比べてどうかなんて minna to kurabete douka nante
確かめる間もないほど tashikameru ma mo nai hodo
生きるのは最高だ ikiru no wa saikou da

あまり泣かなくなっても amari nakanaku natte mo
誤魔化して笑ってくよ gowakashite waratteku yo
大丈夫だあの痛みは daijoubu da ano itami wa
忘れたって消えやしない wasuretatte kie ya shinai

大丈夫だこの光の daijoubu da kono hikari no
始まりには… hajimari ni wa…
君がいる kimi ga iru
