MV SypnosisEdit

On a rainy day, several students are entering their school. They happily chat and laugh as they leave their umbrellas in the entrance hall of the school. Friends are greeted and gently hugged as the girls move towards their class room. Two girls, Yui and Atsuko greet their friend Rena who arrives right now. Everything is perfect.

Somewhere else, Sayaka and Akari are standing in front of a school. Their school uniforms are hidden by a rain coat. A thunderstorm roars above them. The school in front of them is not recognizable. Only the gym is standing. The majority of the stone is black, and a few parts of the building are still burning. Fire fighters are working and several ambulances and the police are present.
"Impossible…" Sayaka whispers.

Back in school, it's lunch break. Rena, Yuihan, Atsuko, Paruru, Takamina, Sasshi, Ikuchan, Mocchi and Haruppi are sitting in the indoor garden of the school.
Paruru speaks up. "Hey, did you all hear the news?".
"I haven't followed them recently." Haruppi admits.
"You mean the scandal of this politician?" Atsuko asks.
"But didn't that happen a few weeks ago already?" Ikuchan thinks loud.
"It definitely did happen a few weeks ago." Takamina agrees.
"Which one?" Mocchi wonders.
"Our sister school burned down completely tonight! Nothing is left. They have nowhere to learn anymore."
"Oh, really?" Atsuko asks. "That's horrible! Poor students..."
"On the other hand, " Haruppi replies. "they are far below us on the national ranking."
The group, with exception of Rena, is laughing. Ever since Paruru had spoken up, Rena has been looking down.
"But, of course, no one got hurt." Paruru adds.
"It's not like they go to school." Ikuchan jokes.
"Did they find the culprit?" Yui wonders.
"I thought they had been able to restore the security cameras immediately and that the fire just started for no reason?" Takamina tells them.
"Buuh!" Sasshi grins. "A ghost!"
"Well, the real news though…" Paruru starts.
"Oh, come on! Tell us!" Atsuko sighs.
"They will attend our school until the end of the year."
"You aren't serious. We're supposed to learn in the same building as them?" Ikuchan sighs. "That's way below our standard."
"But it does make sense…" Yui admits. "We are their sister school."

On the other side of the indoor garden, Akarin, Sayaka, Honoka, Rairin, Hikarin, Miyaya, Monica, Alisa and Jia are entering the area through the door. Amazed by the beauty of the garden, they're lest speechless for a moment.
"Now I know where all the money goes to." Hikarin comments.
"Exactly…" Monica agrees. "How were the students in your classes?"
"… Not exactly the example of friendly." Miyagya replies.
"Same." Rairin sighs.
"I really wanna' go back. The teachers are so strict!" Honoka complains.
"But, Sayaka?" Akari steps next to her. "Your childhood best friend is a student here, right?"
"She can show us everything!" Jia proposes.
"In which class is she?" Alisa asks.
"… I haven't spoken to Rena in years." Sayaka replies.

The girls meet.
"Sayaka-san… It's been a while." Rena greets Sayaka.
"Yeah, it has been." Sayaka replies.
"You know each other?" Acchan asks.
"I'm surprised. " Takamina agrees.
"They're childhood friends!" Honoka announces.
"It's really a coincidence that they meet again like this…" Miyagi agrees.
"Hey ya'." Akari greets the other girls. "Mind if we join you? We don't really have a plan of anything."
Even though they aren't happy with it, the girls agree with it.

"There must be something to bring us closer together…" Rena whispers.

Over the time, the girls become close friends.
One day, in March, the girls decide to have a sleep over in school. Of course, the teachers wouldn't allow it, but they're able to get into the school either way. In order to do so, they have to get the key from the caretaker. While the music starts planning, they start their plan. While they work on the key, they also start performing in the flower garden inside. The scene cuts between the key chase, the performance and close ups.

Eventually, after the first refrain, they were able to get everything necessary items and meet, still in school uniform, in the evening. The girls hurry inside. Eventually deciding on several places to have a party first, they start having fun, eat and dance. They continue the dance of the verses in the self-made disco. During the refrain, they laugh and joke and several characters have close ups. Rena quickly leaves for a few moments, even though the girls stop her, but she then returns. White-grey-ish smoke/fog fills the room. 

During the bridge after the second refrain, Rena stands in front of the director's office alongside a woman, presumably her mother. They are called in, and the woman pushes her into the room. Rena's face isn't shown. She wears casual clothes.

Now, the girls stand in a beautiful rose garden, wearing white dresses and their signature flowers. They perform the song, and once again, the girls have close-ups.

During the final refrain, a short shot of the girls laying on the ground presumably asleep in the grey smoke/fog is shown. A flash illuminates the room for a second. The video then cuts back to the girls' performance on the flower field in white dresses. They almost finish the song, until the sung lines end.

The next scene is accompanied by the outro. The graduation ceremony is happening in a gym. The school director is calling all students to come and gives them their certificate. He calls all fifteen girls with the exception being Rena. When he calls her, no one stands up and gloomy silence falls over the room.

The bells ring and a single, rainbow-coloured rose petal flies through the room. Cursive white writing appears on the screen saying "Rose no Hibi".

The credits roll.

Do you still remember the time,
When we used to be little but?
Wondering what would
Become of us in the future?

Slowly, the light of the sun
Embraced us with its warmth
And buts turned into blossoms
Growing towards the endless sky

The days of the rose (will never end)
Dreams are (still alive)
Facing forward
Instead of looking back
And someday,
The rose will bloom

When we awoke
Glaring at those leaves
Close to us, yet far away
How could ever reach them?

Somehow, it seemed like a dream
Deep in our heart, we knew
That if we just asked you
You would lead us a hand

The dreams of the rose (I can't believe)
Are in full bloom (As I thought)
Ever since I know you
Life has changed a lot
And someday,
The rose will bloom

Sometimes
Even the strongest flowers
Fall down and cry

Sometimes
Clouds darken the sun's light
And we freeze without its warmth

Sometimes
I look towards the sky
And wonder what's beyond

Sometimes
I have to realize
That we aren't in the same Earth

Even if light years
Are the distance between us
Even if it would take years
To meet you again

Surely,
I know that
When we look towards the sky
We can be sure that
We are under the same sky
And we grow towards it!

The days of the rose (will never end)
Dreams are (still alive)
Facing forward
Instead of looking back
And someday,
The rose will bloom

Later on, buts
Bloomed into beautiful flowers

小さな蕾の時…
まだ 思い出す?
未来の僕らは
誰になるを望むか?

ゆっくりと、木漏れ日が
暖かのそばに僕らを擁する
蕾が花になる
無限の空へ咲く

Roseの日々(終わらない)
夢はまだ(生きているんだ)
あおむけ代わりに
前を見る
そして いつか
Roseが咲く

僕らの覚醒の時
葉を見上げる
近くに、まだ遠くに
どのように達する?

何とか 夢みたい
心の中に深く、知っていた
ちょうど君に尋ねた
君は助けて

Roseの夢(信じられない)
満開だよ(予想通り)
君を知って以来ずっと 
人生は大きく変わった
そして いつか
Roseが咲く

時々
最古の花も
泣いてるや落ちる

時々
雲は太陽の光を暗く
暖がいないと凍り

時々
空を見上げる
向こうは何か

時々
僕は気づいた
同じ地球じゃないんだ

光年が僕の間の
距離であっても
君にもう一度会うのに
何年もかかることがあっても

Roseの日々(終わらない)
夢はまだ(生きているんだ)
あおむけ代わりに
前を見る
そして いつか
Roseが咲く

あとで 蕾が
美しい花に咲いた

    • Yokoyama Yui - Red Spider Lily - Lost memories
  • The MV can be interpreted in many ways; a relation to the centre's assigned flower whose meaning is "Infinite possibilities".
    • A possible way to explain Rena missing in the end is that she had to transfer schools (the scene in the office).
    • Another possibility is that the school burned down in the night of the "party" as well since all girls are laying on the ground in grey smoke. The scene freaturing Sayaka and Akarin in the beginning could be taken set after their party and the police cars could be present due the existance of casualities. Rena might didn't survive the fire.
    • In order to make the girls "equal", Rena set a fire in the night of the party (her leaving for a short moment). This was found out later on, explaining her absence, the office scene and the presence of the police.
