This song... actually has a very interesting back story. At the end of the title it says 日本鬼子イメージソング, "Nippon Onigo's image song." "Nippon Onigo" is a racist anti-Japanese slur that sort of means Japanese devil child. It was coined by Chinese propaganda people back in WWII and has been used ever since. Nowadays it's often used online.
However, 2ch (Japanese image board) decided to counter this by creating a moe girl that is the embodiment of Nippon Onigo in order to illustrate the point that they aren't insulted by it. This moe anthropomorphism has been a huge trend lately and I've seen tons of fan art of her on pixiv. This song is basically supposed to be her theme song. It would be interesting to know what the lyrics are. I could give a shot at translating them when I have more time, though I'm really not a very experienced translator. Maybe I'll at least be able to get the gist of the lyrics.
I got some of this info here and some from my personal experience on pixiv.

Well there's your interesting tidbit of info for the day. It's a sweet song too.

Oh, nice. Thanks for that. I should save it for future use but I'm lazy. :U

It makes me more interested in this song. Mizki sounds nice here.

That's gotta be the coolest way to brush off a racial slur I've ever seen. Props to 2ch, and I dearly hope you'll take a crack at a translation; knowing even just the gist would be lovely.

I took a crack at translating it but as I had thought it's beyond my ability to translate it line-by-line. Fortunately somebody else translated it: http://www.animelyri...oid/hakumei.htm
C&P lyrics:

Quote

"JUST WHY?" These words hurt me so,
as I stand in disbelief at the rain felt on my cheeks.
How can it be raining when the sky is this blue?

"I REALLY DON'T UNDERSTAND."
Why was I born a demon, different from the humans?
Just where should I search for the answer?
I keep on asking, while my voice resounds emptily.

Since the crows are already screeching,
people start to head for their homes. I grow envious,
and am now searching for a place that I can return.

Even the twinklings of the stars of the whole sky
will become blurry from the waking light of the day.
Although I am still imprisoned in darkness right now,
morning will surely come to shine upon me.

"I WILL BECOME STRONG,"
not for myself, but for the exorcism;
I will exorcise all the demons lurking
in people's hearts, as the people live on.

I feel some sentiment, having lived through this flowing era.
The scattering flowers are so lovely,
that, unable to forget them, I now search for them.

Twilight's radiance will shine
and color me whiter than anyone else.
The illusions floating within
the dark clouds' gaps will become exposed.

Even the entire group of flowers
scattered in the brief moment as I looked down.
Tomorrow, too, I will live gasping in pain,
while believing that my effort will be answered.

Even the twinklings of the stars of the whole sky
will become blurry from the waking light of the day.
Although I am still imprisoned in darkness right now,
morning will surely come to shine upon me.


It is quite touching...

You know what would be great is if VY1 became the fan-official voice of Nippon Onigo. They've already come to an agreement on Nippon Onigo's character design and VY1 is in want of a character design so it works perfectly.
