—Description quote

Ima Suki ni Naru.-triangle story- is the "-another story-" song of Ima Suki ni Naru., from the perspective of Kotaro Enomoto. It focuses on his pining for Hina Setoguchi while she's busy chasing after Koyuki Ayase. The song first commercially appears on the Haniwa Kyoku Utattemita 5 album, the album it was written for, a day after its internet release.

It appears as an insert song in the second HoneyWorks animated movie Suki ni Naru Sono Shunkan wo. ~Kokuhaku Jikkou Iinkai~.


SynopsisEdit

Being from Kotaro's perspective, we see that he's pined for Hina for quite a while, and is slightly jealous that Hina devotes her time and affection to Koyuki. We also see that he's always trying to be by her side when she needs it, and does want to see her happy, but he cannot bring himself to confess to her just yet. He makes an attempt once while the pair was studying for high school exams, but Hina brushes it off and he makes no other attempts afterwards.
When time returns to the moments after Hina's heart got broken, Kotaro is standing near the school gates, waiting for her so that they can go home together.

LyricsEdit

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
認めても認めちゃっても mitomete mo mitomechatte mo
君のことは諦められない kimi no koto wa akiramerarenai
今も好きです ima mo suki desu

頼りなくって目立たなくって逃げてばかりの tayorinakutte medatanakutte nigete bakari no
先輩なんてどこがいいんだよ senpai nante doko ga ii nda yo
学年なんて関係なくて強がったけど gakunen nante kankei nakute tsuyogatta kedo
出会いなんて見たくなかった deai nante mitaku nakatta

それからはいつも気づいてる sorekara wa itsumo kizuiteru
目が合うと二人笑顔に変わる me ga au to futari egao ni kawaru
困るんだその優しさは komaru nda sono yasashisa wa

いつか好きになる気づいた itsuka suki ni naru kizuita
あと何回?ねえ目が合えば・・・ ato nan-kai? nee me ga aeba...
カウントダウン止まって kauntodaun tomatte
認めても認めちゃっても mitomete mo mitomechatte mo
君のことは諦められない kimi no koto wa akiramerarenai
今も好きです ima mo suki desu

近くになって少しぐらいは認めるけれど chikaku ni natte sukoshi gurai wa mitomeru keredoo
譲るなんてそんな気無くて yuzuru nante son'na ki nakute
前からずっと想ってるって一番だって mae kara zutto omotteru tte ichiban datte
二人きりは見たくないんだ futarikiri wa mitakunai nda

いつからか君は曖昧で itsukara ka kimi wa aimai de
目が合えば先に逸らしてるよね me ga aeba saki ni sorashiteru yo ne
困るんだその恋の表情(かお) komaru nda sono koi no hyoujou (kao)

昨日より“好き”の気持ちが kinou yori “suki” no kimochi ga
あと一歩?ねえ近づくよ ato ippo? nee chikazuku yo
カウントダウン進んで kauntodaun susunde
伝えたら伝えちゃったら tsutaetara tsutaechattara
多分距離ができちゃうかもね tabun kyori ga dekichau kamo ne
ずっと想うよ zutto omou yo

状況は今も最悪で joukyou wa ima mo saiaku de
書き上げた台本(セリフ)言えずに終わる kakiageta daihon (serifu) iezu ni owaru
弱いんだ・・・見つめられると yowai nda... mitsumerareru to

口にした好きの言葉も kuchi ni shita suki no kotoba mo
あと一歩?ねえ近づけば ato ippo? nee chikazukeba
届いたのかな ずっと todoita no kana zutto
変わらずに隣にいるよ kawarazu ni tonari ni iru yo
全部全部わかってるから zenbu zenbu wakatterukara

ねえまた一緒に帰ろう nee mata issho ni kaerou

TriviaEdit

  • This is one of the few named "-another story-" perspective songs with a different name, the others being Kinyoubi no Ohayou -love story- and Watashi ga Koi wo Shiru Hi. Like the latter song, it's also one of the few perspective shifting songs that's slower in tempo than the song it's based off of, and uses different instruments.
  • Although ultimately belonging to the first singer's true love interest like the others, this song is the only "-another story-" that does not come from the original song's other primary focus character.
  • The Vocaloid version of this song was inducted into Niconico's Vocaloid Hall of Fame.
  • The cover of HoneyWorks Utattemita 5 depicts the hallway scene specifically from this song; the difference there is that Hina is depicted with a string clinging around Kotaro's heart in the image.
