It never fails. Two minutes after I upload the video, I find something wrong. D:
'The people who walk pass by are laughing, are they making fun of me?' should be 'The people who pass are smiling, are they laughing at me?'

Notes from the producers page (paraphrased a bit): [TRANSLATED BY hokorichan]
Written with my own past in mind, this is a message to my friends and young people.
To the people in the modern world who have come to depend on the online community, dont we all feel a bit dissatisfied and lonely?
In order to cover the loneliness, we depend even more heavily on the net.
But in the end, we still feel unsatisfied, but its troublesome to deal with people, so we go back to the net
We are trapped in this loop.
The dimly lit digital garden = PC and mobile phone connected to the internet.
There are a lot of teenagers that feel lonely and uneasy if they are not always sending and receiving mails on their cell phone.
Could their heart be fulfilled this way?
In order to escape from this loneliness, there is no other way but to make changes yourself.
Although you might fear other people, but other people are afraid also
There is no one who want to approach someone who isnt smiling
Around you, arent there people who
Easily become irritated, and are always suspicious of other people?
These kinds of people doesnt have much friends, right?
In other peoples mind, are you smiling?
Please be smiling.
This is such a song.
Sorry if I sound pompous.
The first part of this song is [myself], and the second part is the [other self] who cry out the true feeling born from loneliness.
As one move forward, the loneliness fades away, [the other self] will probably also vanish.
But [the other self] would still watch over you, so please move forward by yourself.
And may [the other self] never have to appear again.
