—Jin's Song Introduction
The MV starts off with Ayano and Shintaro walking down a bridge and him telling her to leave him alone. Ayano, however, refuses to leave his side, so he calls her annoying, then walks ahead of her.
Following, Shintaro is seen in his room, the time and date being August 15, 12:33. He decides to go outside, bringing Ene along with him. Wishing to die already, he clutches his wrist, and steps in front of a door with the numbers 107 on it. The door is opened and in front of him, the other members of the Mekakushi Dan appear. He greets all of them, shortly after hearing Ayano's voice, which suggests to "play" once more.
The events of Route XX begin with Ene stating she is worried. Shintaro starts to wander all about his room and finally drifts to sleep. He dreams about Ayano and him in their middle school years, until he hears Ene's voice asking if that means he cannot even see tomorrow. Promptly, he opens his eyes and turns to strangle Ene, who disappears from his grip, seemingly having died. Shintaro suffers a nervous breakdown and takes out a pair of scissors.
Another scene from Route XX begins to play, proceeding from when the Snake of Clearing Eyes takes over the body of Konoha, therefore turning into 'Black Konoha', in order to kill the Mekakushi Dan and repeat the tragedy they are part of.
Route XX Shintaro sits on his bed and stabs himself with the red scissors, while in the parallel scene, Black Konoha attempts to shoot himself with a gun. However, Shintaro takes the shot, causing himself to die differently in both scenes.
The next scene shows Route XX Shintaro and the other Shintaro lying on the ground, surrounded by white nothingness. Route XX Shintaro sits down, with Azami looking down at him, until the other Shintaro walks past her, much to the medusa's surprise. Route XX Shintaro and him appear to be in an empty classroom, back to back. Ayano stands in front of Route XX Shintaro and apologizes for dying, whereupon she asks if they should say their farewells to each other. Shintaro runs after her, begging her to stay, again expressing that the Shintaro of this route has not yet accepted her death. The other Shintaro walks forward and smiles at a surprised Ayano, who smiles back at him. She then wraps her scarf around her friend, whose eyes turn red, proving he has accepted Ayano and gained an eye ability.
Lyrics & Translation
踞って 一人 描いていた
カゲボウシ 滲む 姿を思い出して
カゲボウシが そんな僕を 見つめていたんだ

Years may pass but your shadow won't disappear
and my feelings are only getting stronger.
Crouching all alone I drew a picture
Underneath the scorching sun, on a hilly road,
our blurry figures were walking.
The temperature of the summer remained in my eyes.
"Don't mind me,"
"Just leave me alone already!"
I brushed off your hand.
"No, I won't go"
You exclaimed and
grabbed onto my hand.
"Man, you're so annoying!"
I walked a little bit ahead of you
without ever looking back.
"Your real heart is?"
If I'm 'wise' then, I can't face forward;
I have no reason to so, I'll rot away instead
It would be nice if time could be turned back.
Years may pass but I'll never die
I repeat hopeful words to myself,
even though I know I still won't be able to reach you.
"It doesn't matter,
just die already!" I said as I clutched my wrist, simply cursing it.
Unable to do anything, I merely indulged myself in life.
"If summer can show me dreams, then
let's go to before you were taken away"
The days where I hid my embarrassment
are illuminating upon the atmosphere and
burning my mind.
A boy who had turned 18
waited for her again somewhere,
Remembering the figures of blurring silhouettes.
Underneath the blazing sun in the empty schoolyard
Today too, you also said, while smiling
"Let's play together" as you swayed from side to side
"I'm worried," she said with an uneasy face
Someone like a neighbor wouldn't ever understand, so
please don't pretend to be so sad.
Feeling hazy, let's remain unaffected today too
and keep up yesterday's pace
so that I won't ever forget your temperature
If I'm wishing for a dream that can't come true, then
I'll embrace this blurry past and have a dream which I don't wake up from
and naturally seclude myself from the outside world.
"But that means you can't even see tomorrow?"
I don't really care 'bout that, so it's ok
I stained my hands in order to kill these boring days
I'm choosing "solitude" after all
A rotten boy at 18 today too, prayed again
while clinging on to your colored smile
Underneath the blazing sun
Asking "Somehow, please take me away instead of leaving like this!"
and my murmuring breath was quietly stopped
"Can you hear me?" the voice asked and then disappeared.
The reason somehow became clear
I reached out a hand in the summer warmth...
The young boy prayed under the hot, blazing sun
and stood up in "Those days"
The smile of the summerly you doesn't
"I died. I'm sorry"
"Shall we say our 'farewells'?" like these
please don't say them;
don't leave me!¨
The silhouettes were watching
this kind of me.
