Why is it called White Day again?

SENPAI NOTICED ME!! SENPAI RABUUU~ ♡

So there's this day when boys return the feelings from the Valentine chocolate last month, and it's called White Day. Apparently it's not really celebrated anywhere but east Asia. Well, yeah, because in other countries boys DO give chocolate and gifts on Valentine too! Which means... yeah, Valentine is a little bit different in Japan. Wonder why.

Also, do you really need 1 f*cking month to reply? Seriously? Why must you wait that long, I mean... GIRLS WANT CHOCOLATE TOO. Oh wait, actually girls in Japan DO give chocolate to each other on Valentine too. Something like friendship choco instead of the usual obligatory choco or love choco if it's not Yuri choco.

But unlike Valentine -which is really chocolate related-, White Day has various gifts (though mostly white). Perhaps something like white chocolate and white pantsu and marshmallow. Funny that my father bought us a big pack of marshmallow out of nowhere today despite of not knowing what the hell White Day is.


By the way, South Koreans are rather creative to emphasize that feeling of singleness. For those people who are single, they got some celebration called Black Day. Those single people gather and eat some kind of black noodle to celebrate their singledom. Which is quite happy, but actually really... really sad.

闇の中の真実が光り輝くように
鍵の無い希望を解き放とう

何故 手のひらの瑕を抱いて
生まれ堕ちた意味
1000年過去でも未来でもなく
選ばれた現在

善悪はかる天秤は脆弱
満ち欠ける月が誘う
犠牲の地に咲いた
血の色の花

たったひとつ叶うなら
すべてを捧げよう
Post nubila phoebus
魂 風に放て

漆黒のカーテン引き千切り
違う空を見てみたい
錆びた運命のひび割れ
想いをねじ込んで

どんなに争い続けても
時間(とき)は呼吸をやめない
壊して、積んで、壊して
何が遺るだろう

そう、70億もの迷い星
その配置図は書き換えられる
燃え尽きても輝ける場所へ
いつか辿り着ける

存在 100人100通りの
背骨を持つように
それぞれの生き様を掲げ
日々を彷徨う

天罰下す指先は残虐
寄せ返す波は
幾千の涙の捨て場所
太古からずっと

そっと手と手繋いだら
もうひとつのストーリー
Per aspera ad astra
届く 祈りはきっと…

紺碧の大地駆け抜けて
ここにいると叫びたい
足跡紡いだ果てに
本当の夜明け

壮大な迷路に迷い込み
絶望に抱かれても
信じて、強く願って
それが道しるべ

今、60兆個の細胞
ひとつひとつを奮い立たせる
確かな光を掴むために
瞳そらさないで

わたしの声がいつの日か
誰かの笑顔を呼び醒ませたらいいな
花には水を 鳥に歌を
荒野に息吹を 罪悪に裁きを

漆黒のカーテン引き千切り
違う空を見てみたい
錆びた運命のひび割れ
想いをねじ込んで

どんなに争い続けても
時間は呼吸をやめない
壊して、積んで、壊して
何が遺るだろう

そう、70億もの迷い星
その配置図は書き換えられる
燃え尽きても輝ける場所へ
いつか辿り着ける
