Yesterday's story about a girl who couldn't be honest.

—Jin's Song Introduction

Yuukei Yesterday (夕景イエスタデイ Yūkei Iesutadei) is the thirteenth song of the series, featured on the last album. It is also known as "The story of glaring eyes". It describes Takane's feelings towards Haruka.

Jin's Comment

"This song isn't out yet, but to tell you about it, it's sort of a love song. But this isn't the kind of song that'll clearly say "I love you" or "I like you". Because this is more like a story of recalling the past tragedy, so it's actually quite saddening. The main character of the story will be Enomoto Takane, who later became Ene, and also (?) Konoha and Kenjirou-sensei. You'll have to wait for a while for the song to release. According to the plan, it'll be the 1st PV to meet you guys in the 2nd album."[1]
“Even though I’m not sure what these feelings even are,
Maybe he already knows about them.
Agh! This is so annoying!”
There are times when I become very irritated at couples that walk through the streets. “Why would they do that when I’m all alone here?” I feel this kind of self-centered hatred.
The girl in this song also furrows her brow in disgust like that in her everyday life, and her constant glares start to become evident.
But, what if she had an unexpected realization?
Things that she hates also being things that she likes.
That strange, mixed feeling, would surely be something very irritating for her.
I aimed to make this a cheerful, impatient, and bittersweet song.
I’d like it to be listened to with the feelings of being in love.[2]


This song is about a day Haruka and Takane spent together, which revolves around Takane's point of view. As she and Haruka were placed in a special needs class together, she began to harbor feelings for him, but, instead of confessing, put it aside since she "wasn't interested in that."
The more the days went, the more her feelings grew. She decides to confess to Haruka one day, but tries to not to look nervous in front of him while listening to the radio. She then made a careless mistake while getting up, by Haruka seeing that the headphones she always wore were disconnected. Even though he was confused, Takane freaked out while finding trying to find the right words to say to Haruka, but was unsuccessful. "You seem to be in a very good mood today!" he says "Can't you see I'm in a bad mood!?" she exclaimed.
As she was getting nervous about the day ending, she wanted to tell him before her feelings would explode. "God, please, just let me make it!!"

Lyrics & Translation

注ぐ太陽浴びて 楽しげに
Sosogu taiyou abite tanoshige ni
Hashagu hito no kao o
睨みながらに 横切っていく
Nirami nagara ni yokogitte iku
Tetsuya ake no asa de

腹が立って 憮然な私の目を
Hara ga tatte buzen na watashi no me o
Saketa hito no saki ni
「おはよう」って言って 伸びをする
"Ohayou" tte itte nobi o suru
寝癖立ってる あいつが立ってた
Neguse tatteru aitsu ga tatteta

気がついたら 目が合う様な
Ki ga tsuitara me ga au you na
淡い恋だなんて 興味も湧かないな
Awai koi da nante kyoumi mo wakanai na

だけど なんでだろう
Dakedo nande darou
Kao o mirenai

"Kankei nai yo, datte... aa, hara ga tatsu!"

見つけた太陽 睨みつけて
Mitsuketa taiyou niramitsukete
高鳴った胸に 蓋したって
Takanatta mune ni futashitatte

この感情抑えられないな 気持ち悪くって
Kono kanjou osaerarenai na kimochi waruku tte
なんだろう 変な気持ちだ
Nandarou hen na kimochi da

wow wow wow
Wow wow wow
Taido ga kao ni dechatte
謎に緊張しちゃって 声が裏返った
Nazo ni kinchou shichatte koe ga uragaetta

"Kono joukyou mou wakannai yo! Atama ni kuru!" tte
なんだか 馬鹿な私だ
Nandaka baka na watashi da

Kyoushitsu wa kyou mo heibon de akubi ga deru
Futari kiri no madobe

気にしちゃうんだよ 暇な態度で
Ki ni shichaun da yo hima na taido de
Rajio o nagashite mo

立ち上がった私は 油断していて
Tachiagatta watashi wa yudan shiteite
Rokotsu ni barete shimau

Kiita furi shiteita
Heddofon ga
Zutto doko ni mo tsunagattenai koto

「時が経てば 忘れる様な
"Toki ga tateba wasureru you na
そんなもんでしょ」って どこかで強情で
Sonna mon desho" tte doko ka de goujou de

だけど なんでかな
Dakedo nande ka na
Kuchi ni dasenai
Haratatteita tte, kotoba mo denai

Shinchou ni "taido de tsutaeyou" tte
Kotoba o fuujikonde kyou mo karamawatta
"Kono kanji, tsuzuku no nara waruku mo nai?" tte
なんだか 随分弱気ね
Nandaka zuibun yowaki ne

wow wow wow
Wow wow wow
"Nanka gokigen da ne" tte
"Haratatteru no wakannai no?" tte hoho o tsunetta

鈍感なその態度 気に食わないんだ
Donkan na sono taido ki ni kuwanainda
どうしよう 今日がもう終わっちゃう
Doushiyou kyou ga mou owacchau

もう一回 太陽睨みつけて
Mou ikkai taiyou niramitsukete
"Shizumu no chotto matte yo" tte iki suikonda

Takanatta mune ga kurushikutte
Nandaka toppi na kimochi da

「伝えたいよ」って 走りだした
"Tsutaetai yo" tte hashiridashita
この感情もう解らないよ 爆発しそうだ
Kono kanjou mou wakaranai yo bakuhatsu shisou da

太陽が 沈む前に
Taiyou ga shizumu mae ni
なんとか 伝えたいから
Nantoka tsutaetai kara

どうにかしてよ 神様
Douni ka shite yo kamisama

(Unofficial Translation)

The sun shines, and full of laughs,
People show their high spirits;
I glare their way, and traverse the crowd,
The morning after a long night

For my anger and discouraging eyes,
People avoid me; but past them,
He says "Morning!", does a stretch,
And with his bedhead, there he stood...

As if suddenly we find our eyes meet;
Is it a faint love? Nope, not interested
But then how do I explain it? I can't look you in the eye...
"That has nothing to do with... Argh, he pisses me off!"

Find the s-s-s-sun and glare into it,
C-C-C-Cover up my heart beating fast
I can't keep my emotions in check, it's disgusting...
What the hell, it's such a weird feeling!

My a-a-a-attitude showed on my face;
Mysteriously nervous, my voice went squeaky
"I don't understand this! I'm goin' nuts!"
Agh, I'm just such a moron!

The classroom is ordinary as always, so I yawn,
Together by the window
It won't leave my mind, even when I act bored
And let the radio play...

When I stood up, I was careless,
And so I was utterly busted;
I'd been pretending to listen to my headphones,
But they weren't plugged into anywhere...

"Time will pass, and soon enough,
It'll just be forgotten," I insisted to myself
But then why? Why can't I speak?
I can't even say a word about how he annoys me...

Choosing to t-t-t-tell him with my attitude,
I sealed up my words and idled another day
"It's not so bad to keep going like this, is it?"
I'm just too faint of heart...

"You l-l-l-look like you're in a good mood!"
"Don't you get that you tick me off?" I pinched his cheek
I can't stomach that thickheaded attitude!
What to do? Today is already ending...

Once more, I g-g-g-glare into the sun
"Hold on a sec before you set!" I took a deep breath
My f-f-f-fast-beating heart hurts;
It's such an extraordinary feeling...

"I want to t-t-t-tell you" - I took off running;
I don't understand my emotions anymore, I'm gonna blow
Before the s-s-s-sun sets,
I want to tell you somehow...

Do something, god, please!!
