Background[edit | edit source]

"Innocence" is a song featuring Hatsune Miku by KazuP. The song is easily interpreted as this: "Let Me Sing". The narrative could be interpreted as the following: "a song was given to Miku by the creators, in order to show their love to her, hence she was born through song. The song may someday die and be forgotten, it may be buried in the past, but for now let the song be alive and known, let the song be sung by Hatsune Miku." The lyrics won the sympathy of many and for a while it became a signature song of Miku.

Rise to Popularity[edit | edit source]

The song was made in order to quell Dwango, Crypton Media Future and Ika's controversy.

Dwango Music Publishing Inc., a company related to Niconico, registered "Miku Miku ni Shite Ageru" on JASRAC without full agreement of its creator Ika and Crypton Future Media, Inc. Furthermore, Dwango used the name "Hatsune Miku" without permission of Crypton. This third party's conduct and the following dishonest steps brought the ire and confusion of many fans and other creators. This problem has since been settled by both parties (Crypton & Dwango).

While the song was made to give a message to both parties, it also got the attention of many confused users.

The phrase "Another Innocence?" later became a joke, coming about whenever a major controversy occurred between Crypton and any other party.

Lyrics[edit | edit source]

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
仮想(ヴァーチャル)と現実の狭間で vaacharu to genjitsu no hazama de
私は生まれ 愛されてきた watashi wa umare aisaretekita
今だけ お願い 夢をみさせて ima dake onegai yume o misasete

夏の終わりに私は生まれた natsu no owari ni watashi wa umareta
暑い日が続くこの場所で atsui hi ga tsuzuku kono basho de
待ち望んでた皆は私に machinozondeta minna wa watashi ni
素敵な歌を贈ってくれた suteki na uta o okuttekureta

理想(ヴァーチャル)と現実の狭間で vaacharu to genjitsu no hazama de
私は生まれ 愛されてきた watashi wa umare aisaretekita
リアルな世界は 複雑すぎて 疲れちゃう riaru na sekai wa fukuzatsusugite tsukarechau
ただ素敵な歌が聞きたくて tada suteki na uta ga kikitakute
みんな私を 育ててくれた minna watashi o sodatetekureta
今だけ お願い 夢をみさせて ima dake onegai yume o misasete

楽しい日々も 何時かは終わると tanoshii hibi mo itsuka wa owaru to
解っているけど 今だけは wakatteiru kedo ima dake wa
あなたがくれた 素敵な歌を anata ga kureta suteki na uta o
歌っていたい ねぇ いいでしょ・・? utatteitai nee ii desho..?

Innocence.... Innocence....

理想(ヴァーチャル)と現実の狭間で vaacharu to genjitsu no hazama de
