Background[edit | edit source]

"Melancholic" is an original song by Junky and is his most notable song. It was uploaded to Niconico on April 19, 2010 and to YouTube on May 22, 2012. It's also one of Rin's most notable songs.

Nine days after the song was uploaded, it quickly became a hit and entered the Hall of Fame. A year after, on July 12, 2011, it became Junky's first work to enter the Hall of Legend. One day later, its "reply" song, "Twinkle", with the same illustrator and composer, was uploaded, explaining more background to the song Melancholic.

The song tells the story of a confused and conflicted tsundere girl (Rin), and her first time having a crush on a boy. Originally thinking all those feelings were "melancholy", the girl later realized it was love she felt, not sadness. Though her experience may have been bittersweet, she recognizes her feelings and moves on by the song's finish.

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
全然つかめないきみのこと zenzen tsukamenai kimi no koto
全然しらないうちに zenzen shiranai uchi ni
ココロ奪われるなんてこと kokoro ubawareru nante koto
あるはずないでしょ aru hazu nai desho

それは無愛想な笑顔だったり sore wa buaisou na egao dattari
それは日曜日の日暮れだったり sore wa nichiyoubi no higure dattari
それはテスト(ばっか)の期間だったり sore wa tesuto bakka no kikan dattari
それはきみとゆう名のメランコリンニスト。 sore wa kimi to yuu na no merankorin'nisuto.

手当たり次第強気でぶつかっても teatari shidai tsuyoki de butsukatte mo
なんにも手には残らないって思い込んでる nannimo te ni wa nokoranaitte omoikonderu
ちょっとぐらいの勇気にだって chotto gurai no yuuki ni datte
ちっちゃくなって塞ぎこんでる chicchaku natte fusagi konderu
わたしだから watashi dakara

全然つかめないきみのこと zenzen tsukamenai kimi no koto
全然しらないうちに zenzen shiranai uchi ni
ココロ奪われるなんてこと kokoro ubawareru nante koto
あるはずないでしょ aru hazu nai desho

全然気づかないきみなんて zenzen kizukanai kimi nante
全然知らない×知らないもん zenzen shiranai shiranai mon
「ねぇねぇ」じゃないわ この笑顔 "nee nee" janai wa kono egao
また眠れないでしょ mata nemurenai desho

明日も おんなじ わたしが いるのかな ashita mo onnaji watashi ga iru no kana
無愛想で無口なままの カワいくないヤツ buaisou de mukuchi na mama no kawaikunai yatsu

あの夢にきみが出てきたときから ano yume ni kimi ga dete kita toki kara
素直じゃないの だって sunao janai no datte

全然つかめないきみのこと zenzen tsukamenai kimi no koto
全然しらないうちに zenzen shiranai uchi ni
こころ奪おうとしてたのは kokoro ubaou to shiteta no wa
わたしのほうだもん××× watashi no hou da mon

そういう時期なの souiu jiki na no
おぼれたいのいとしの oboretai no itoshi no
メランコリー merankorii
