Background[edit | edit source]

The short version (Two minutes length) was uploaded on May 20 and the full version came two months after the short version's upload. It then became one of Lamune-P's biggest hits and his first work to have achieved 100,000 views and enter the Nico Nico Hall of Fame on July 25, 2009.

The song tells about summer; Lamune-P stated that "Dog Days" are the hottest days in summer. The name comes from Sirius (also called Dog Star) as he (the sun) was responsible for the hot weather, while "afternoon," to put it bluntly, is when the day is at the hottest as well. Those two combined, the title means "the hottest days of summer in the hottest time in the day."

This song was in the Supplement Time's visual novel Rin ga Utau, Mirai no Neiro; and this is the song where Lamune-P earned his P name (part of the lyrics said "Lamune")

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
焼け付く夏の陽にこぼれる yaketsuku natsu no hi ni koboreru
君の頬にアサガオの雫 kimi no hou ni asagao no shizuku
ちいさな影に落ちては消えて chiisana kage ni ochite wa kiete
そっとそっと この街潤すよ sotto sotto kono machi uruosu yo

虚ろなコンクリート うなだれた重機 utsuro na konkuriito unadareta juuki
少しずつ 少しずつ sukoshi zutsu sukoshi zutsu
風の向きが変わってゆく kaze no muki ga kawatte yuku
あの場所 覚えてる? ano basho oboeteru?

触れないほど熱くなった鉄骨に座って sawarenai hodo atsuku natta tekkotsu ni suwatte
ラムネで乾杯して 叫んで ramune de kanpai shite sakende
逆立ちで見上げる窮屈はもう sakadachi de miageru kyuukutsu wa mou
いらないよ いらないさ ほら…… iranai yo iranai sa hora...

かすんだビルの先 地平線 kasunda biru no saki chiheisen
閉じる 目にも きらめきは残って tojiru me ni mo kirameki wa nokotte
遠くでざわめく葉擦れの音に tooku de zawameku hazure no oto ni
ずっと ずっと 耳を澄ましていたね zutto zutto mimi o sumashite ita ne

僕の腕引く君の手のひらは boku no ude hiku kimi no tenohira wa
ひんやりと気持ちよくて hin'yari to kimochi yokute
焼けた肌にちょっと痛くて yaketa hada ni chotto itakute
あの道 覚えてる? ano michi oboeteru?

ヒマワリをかきわけ 水たまり飛び越え himawari o kakiwake mizutamari tobikoe
君の背どこまでも追いかけて kimi no se doko made mo oikakete
青空を仰いで影送り aozora o aoide kage okuri
でも いつしか 薄れて demo itsushika usurete

思い出していつでも 光の中の日々 omoidashite itsu demo hikari no naka no hibi
灰色の記憶に色をつけて haiiro no kioku ni iro o tsukete
うつむかないで あのときの涙ならもう utsumukanaide ano toki no namida nara mou
いらないよ いらないさ ほら! iranai yo iranai sa hora!
