Background

The song tells different stories of a Len, encountering a girl (Rin) in different "times" and "situations". In most songs, he rarely receives a happy ending with the girl. It's divided into two "chapters". Though it's not stated by Hayakawa-P on why they're separated into two chapters, the significant difference in the two chapters are: the timeline.

The first part seems to have a great theme on "school" or "present time" (e.g. the science girl in the school, the psychic girl in the library) where as the second part focuses more on the 19th century scenes (the detective, also the rich nobleman).

Note: The Girl Series has NO relation whatsoever with the Girl and Boy Series. They are from different composers; the Girl Series is composed by Hayakawa-P, the Girl and Boy Series is composed by MyGOD-P.

Chapter 1

Facts / Pattern

  • Chapter 1's theme is "school" and seems to happen in "present time" unlike Chapter 2 which is the "past". So, the events that happened in Chapter 2 "technically" came first, followed by Chapter 1.
  • Rin doesn't sing in any of the songs in this chapter.
  • Although they're all uploaded at the same day, the "order of upload" is different (Science Girl being uploaded first; though it's the second track to the chapter).
  • In Chapter 2, the Detective Girl is aware of the Canary Girl's existence, and the Noir Girl is aware that the Detective Girl exist; nonetheless this doesn't necessarily mean they "know" for Hayakawa-P could just put it as a "reference" with no relation to the actual plot to the series. It's unsure if any of the characters in Chapter 1 know each other, though none of them are referenced here.
  • In here, both Rin and Len are students. In Chapter 2 they all have different roles. (In this case, Chapter 1 has different "subjects" / "interest")
  • An odd pattern to each Chapter so far is: In the first song, the pattern is always different with the other two songs.
    • Chapter 1's pattern, the interests:
      • Psychic Girl -> No interest (able to have sixth sense when not actually wanting to see; though people have thought she's interested)
      • Science Girl -> Interest in science
      • Literature Girl -> Interest in literature
    • Chapter 2's pattern, Len's role:
      • Canary Girl -> Millionaire (Len) and a singer in a bar (Rin)
      • Detective Girl -> Assistant detective (Len) and a detective (Rin)
      • Noir Girl -> Servant (Len) and a thief (Rin)
  • Len's love towards Rin is somewhat innocent compared to Chapter 2.

This is the most notable song of all in the series; and also the most mylisted. In this song, Len fell in love with a girl (Rin) who is "obsessed" and believes in mythical creatures such as ghosts, spirits, etc.

It all started when Rin gave her a note which reads "You can see them too, can't you?", she was then introduced as "the Psychic Girl", the president of the library club. Rin was quite famous as the "psychic girl", saying, she can see ghosts, and have been invited to TV shows once.

By the end of the song, Rin told him that she secretly doesn't want to see, but can see all the things no one couldn't. Len, who at first didn't care of all the "stories" and "myths" comforted her.

A famous interpretation to this song, is that Len is just a ghost that only Rin can see, as said by him in the line "I can only watch over you", though interpretations are open to this.

Note: Although all the songs in Chapter 1 were uploaded at the same day, "The Longing for Reality of the Science Girl" was uploaded first, then comes "The Rise and Fall of the Psychic Girl". However, Hayakawa-P wrote a note on his mylist saying this if the first track of the chapter.

In here; Len falls in love with the science girl (Rin). Rin is a diligent girl, a smart girl in school, while Len is just a timid boy who watches her from a far. In his head, ideas or conversation topics keeps on popping into his head; even though he has no courage to stand up and say it to her.

Len kept on telling himself that it's "impossible" for her to be with him for an odd reason. He calls himself a "loser" and a "loner". Days pass, and Len still couldn't get himself to talk to the girl. From all the references and things Len have spotted throughout the song; it gives an impression that Len knows the science girl well enough to be somewhat in the same level of "smartness" with her.

In the end, however, Len said he was fine to just watch her from afar, and kept all the words he wants to say in his heart/head. Following the Girl Series' pattern, Len fails to get a happy ending, in this case: with the girl he loves.

The plot to Literature Girl is somewhat similar to Science Girl; with the main cause of him failing is the fact that he couldn't bring the courage to talk to her. As the name suggest, Literature Girl loves to read books; her obsession is much like Science Girl with her experiments (science).

There was a hint of the fact that the boy here wanted to be an author, (thus the type of girl he was attracted to was a "Literature Girl") but days passed and he couldn't bring himself to make a move.

Chapter 2

Facts / Pattern

  • Chapter 2 focuses more on the late 19th century or so. Technically, the events in this Chapter happens before Chapter 1.
  • The Detective Girl mentioned "a rich man and a fire case", which is a reference to Canary Girl. The Noir girl mentioned a "detective" and a "singer in a bar", which is a reference to Detective Girl and Canary Girl. It may mean they "know" each other, nonetheless this doesn't necessarily mean they "know" for Hayakawa-P could just put it as a "reference" with no relation to the actual plot to the series.
  • In Chapter 2, Rin has more parts singing in the song than Chapter 1 where she doesn't get a part to sing. (So far, Noir Girl has the most lines for Rin overall, though she sang nothing in Detective Girl)
  • Rin and Len have different roles in Chapter 2; unlike Chapter 1 where their roles are just "students"
  • An odd pattern to each Chapter so far is: In the first song, the pattern is always different with the other two songs.
    • Chapter 1's pattern, the interests:
      • Psychic Girl -> No interest (able to have sixth sense when not actually wanting to see; though people have thought she's interested)
      • Science Girl -> Interest in science
      • Literature Girl -> Interest in literature
    • Chapter 2's pattern, Len's role:
      • Canary Girl -> Millionaire (Len) and a singer in a bar (Rin)
      • Detective Girl -> Assistant detective (Len) and a detective (Rin)
      • Noir Girl -> Servant (Len) and a thief (Rin)
  • Unlike Chapter 1, Len's love towards Rin is somewhat psychotic and odd; such as Detective Girl's obsession or Len from Canary Girl's suicide.

In the Purgatory and the Canary Girl; Len is a rich nobleman who could buy anything, and lives with the fact, assuming you can buy everything with money. He later met a singer (Rin) who loves to sing. To Len, she was wearing a cheap dress and perfume, however many loves her singing voice.

Later he asked her to sing for him, for everyone, for the money. Eventually, for an odd reason, "everyone" abandoned Len, except Rin. She never eats anymore, she never sings anymore, even though as stated in the beginning "anything can be bought with money".

The girl noticed him crying and she smiled, however it "disgust" Len to see that. He whispered "I love you" to her, and set the (presumably) mansion on fire, showing him how he was in rage (hell in my heart) the whole time.

And in the end, from the very beginning, he is alone.

In this song, Rin is introduced as the "Red-eyed girl detective", and Len, according to Hayakawa-P's description of the video on his mylist, is the assistant. This is the only song on Chapter 2 to not feature Rin in the song as one of the vocals.

Len noticed how she grins around cases, around shrieks or cries, treating it as some sort of challenge and not as a "life". Len thinks that the sight of everything is sad, however Rin seemed "happy" being around corpses and cases, which he seems to be not fond off.

"To the tragedy of the rich boy", and also "the tricked girl" may be a reference to the other songs in the series, it's as if they live in the same timeline. (Purgatory and the Canary Girl; died in the fire).

In the end Len said "all I do is write strange file cases for you" hinting, that he may somehow be culprits of several cases. Following the Girl Series' pattern where Len "falls in love" (though not stated in this song) with all the "girls" in the stories, the reason to his killings (assuming he did) is to make her happy.

In the Noir Girl, Len plays the role of a servant, with Rin being a master thief. The French words sung by Len throughout the song, and also their roles (phantom thief; technically) may be a reference to Maurice Leblanc's Arsene Lupin, which is a detective most notable for his crimes and thefts.
