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 kanashi hikari wasuuji komete
踵磨り減らしたんだ kakato suri herashitanda

uwo-oh

君といた時は見えた kimi to itazokiwa mieta
今は見えなくなった Himawa mienaku natta
透明な彗星をボンヤリと toomenasui seiwa bonyarito
でもそれだけ探してる memosore dake sagashiteru

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 wo darojio
寂しくなんか無かったよ sabishikuna kana katta yo
ちゃんと寂しくなれたから chanto sabishi kumare takara

yeah

いつまでどこまでなんて itsumade to konatte nante
正常か異常かなんて seijoka ijo kanante
考える暇も無いほど kangaeru himawo naiwoto
歩くのは大変だ haruku no mattai henda

悲しいほうがずっと良いよ kanashimi o kazutto ii yo
誤魔化して笑ってくよ kowagashite o matte ku 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 kiteyashinai

理想で作った道を uso o tte tsukutta michi o
現実が塗り替えてくよ kenjitsuga nuri kaeteku yo
思い出はその奇跡の上で omoi tte wa sono kiseki no uede
輝きになって残ってる kagayakini natte no kotteru

uwo-oh

お別れしたのはなんで owakareshita no wa nande
何の為だったんだろな nano tame tatta ndarouna
みがましい光が僕の影を kanashi hikari ga boku no kage o
前に長く伸ばしてる maeni nagaku no bashiteru

時々熱が出るよ doki doki ne tsugatteru yo
時間あるとき眠るよ jikan ga aruto kime muku yo
夢だと分かるその中で yumeta to baka aru so naka de
君と会ってからまた行こう kimi to atte kara matta ikobo

yeah

晴天とは程遠い kessen to mahou totoo ii
終わらない暗闇にも kowagana hikura yamini mo
星を思い浮かべたなら oshio omo yukabeta nara
すぐ銀河の中だ tsugukin gano nakada

あまり泣かなくなっても amahi naka naku natte mo
靴を新しくしても utsu o matta rashi shitemo
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 kite ashinai

伝えたかったことがきっと tsutaetaka kanto toga kitto
あったんだろうな hatta ndarou na
恐らくありきたりなんだろうけど osonakuwari kitta ni nandarou
こんなにも… kedo konnanimo

お別れした事は owakareshi kakoto wa
出会った事と繋がっている deatta kototo tsunagatteru
あの透明な彗星は ano toumei dasugi seiwa
透明だから無くならない toumei dakara nakunoranai

丸バツ三角どれかなんて maru batsu saa kaku dore karante
皆と比べてどうかなんて minna toku ndabete to karande
確かめる間もないほど tashikameru mahou naiwoto
生きるのは最高だ ikirunowa sai koba

あまり泣かなくなっても anmari naka naku natte 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 kiteyashinai

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

Aaaaahhhh…
