About

Jin's third Vocaloid song, as well as the third episode of the Kagerou Project.


The sprinting pace of the melody is surprisingly addictive, and the shocking story revealed in the lyrics was interpreted in various ways, becoming a hot topic. The individualistic worldbuilding captivated many hearts, and within 3 days of being posted, the video had accumulated 100 thousand hits. Four months after, it had broken through one million hits, and served as Jin's breakout hit.


It has been treated as a very popular Vocaloid song on pixiv. Perhaps because it first received attention on this website because of indie singers such as Soraru, at first most illustrations posted here featured those singers. Afterward, the original video gained more attention, and popular illustrators began to post image illustrations, leading to the song gaining attention all over pixiv.


The name of the boy in this song is Hibiya, according to Jin.

Lyrics

8月15日の午後12時半くらいのこと

天気がいい


hachigatsu juugonichi no gogo juunijihan kurai no koto

tenki ga ii


病気になりそうなほど

眩しい日差しの中

することも無いから君と駄弁っていた


byouki ni narisou na hodo

mabushii hizashi no naka

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 君はふてぶてしく呟いた


"demo maa natsu wa kirai ka na"

neko wo nadenagara kimi wa futebuteshiku tsubuyaita


あぁ 逃げ出した猫の

後を追いかけて 飛び込んでしまったのは


aa nigedashita neko no

ato wo oikakete tobikondeshimatta no wa


赤に変わった 信号機


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

血飛沫の色、

君の香りと混ざり合って

むせ返った


ba tto tootta torakku ga

kimi wo hikizutte nakisakebu

chishibuki no iro,

kimi no kaori to mazariatte

musekaetta


嘘みたいな陽炎が

「嘘じゃないぞ」って嗤ってる

夏の水色、かき回すような蝉の音に

すべて眩んだ


uso mitai na kagerou ga

"uso ja nai zo" tte waratteru

natsu no mizuiro, kakimawasu you na semi no oto ni

subete kuranda


目を覚ました 時計の針が鳴り響くベッドで

今は何時?


me wo samashita tokei no hari ga narihibiku beddo de

ima wa nanji?


8月14日の午前12時過ぎ位を指す

やけに煩い蝉の声覚えていた


hachigatsu juuyokka no gozen juuniji sugi kurai wo sasu

yake ni urusai semi no koe oboeteita


でもさぁ 少し不思議だな

同じ公園で昨日見た夢を思い出した


demo saa sukoshi fushigi da na

onaji kouen de kinou mita yume wo omoidashita


「もう今日は帰ろうか」

道を抜けた時周りの人は皆


"mou kyou wa kaerou ka"

michi wo nuketa toki mawari no hito wa mina


上を見上げ 口を開けていた


ue wo miage kuchi wo aketeita


落下してきた鉄柱が

君を貫いて突き刺さる

劈く悲鳴と

風鈴の音が木々の隙間で

空廻り


rakkashitekita tecchuu ga

kimi wo tsuranuite tsukisasaru

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

眩む視界に君の横顔、

笑ってるような気がした


waza to rashii kagerou ga

"yume ja nai zo" tte waratteru

kuramu shikai ni kimi no yokogao,

waratteru you na ki ga shita


何度世界が眩んでも

陽炎が嗤って奪い去る

繰り返して何十年

もうとっくに気が付いていたろ

こんなよくある話なら

結末はきっと1つだけ


nando sekai ga kurande mo

kagerou ga waratte ubaisaru

kurikaeshite nanjuunen

mou tokku ni ki ga tsuiteitaro

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

血飛沫の色、君の瞳と

軋む体に 乱反射して


ba tto oshinoke tobikonda,

syunkan torakku ni

buchiataru

chishibuki no iro, kimi no hitomi to

kishimu karada ni ranhansashite


文句ありげな陽炎に

「ざまぁみろよ」って笑ったら

実によく在る夏の日のこと


monku arige na kagerou ni

"zamaa miro yo" tte warattara

jitsu ni yoku aru natsu no hi no koto


そんな何かがここで終わった


sonna nanka ga koko de owatta


目を覚ました8月14日のベッドの上

少女はただ

「またダメだったよ」と

一人猫を抱きかかえてた


me wo samashita hachigatsu juuyokka no beddo no ue

shoujo wa tada

"mata dame datta yo" to

hitori neko wo dakikakaeteta
