Even if I try my hardest, love won't come. Congratulations to the person I used to love. But now, a new love story will begin.

—Youtube Description Quote

Kokuhaku Rival Sengen is the eleventh song in the Confession Executive Committee song series, focusing on Koyuki Ayase and his pursuit of Natsuki Enomoto.




SynopsisEdit

Koyuki starts the story constantly teased for his effeminate looks by both boys and girls alike, with Natsuki as one of the few exceptions to that rule. He finds himself enamored with her as a result, and vows to try and win her over despite having no real chance, as Natsuki is constantly turning her attention to Yu. Declaring Yu his rival, Koyuki finally makes the push to change himself.
He settles on making himself more presentable by cutting his hair and getting rid of his glasses, to the shock of Sota and most of his classmates. Natsuki does show interest in his new appearance, and Yu shows wariness of him, but nothing goes further from that.
Koyuki continues to make efforts in becoming a new person, participating in sports where he would sit out and becoming more confident. However, it's all for naught— he stumbles upon Natsuki confessing to Yu and, heartbroken, silently congratulates her on winning her crush over, calling her "the girl I used to love". He goes home staring into space, but quickly gets himself out of his slump, yelling into the sky.
The PV for the song ends with Hina Setoguchi waiting near the shoe lockers with a letter in her hand, a scene that wouldn't get more elaboration until Ima Suki ni Naru. came out.


LyricsEdit


「恋に落ちたのはあなたのせいです…」
そんなに見つめて
0%が分かった上で宣戦布告

「女の子みたいだね」って自覚はないけど
女の子に負けちゃうような乙女座男の娘
「コミュニケーション苦手だって…」自覚はあるけど
透明人間にもなれちゃうA型男の娘

そんな僕を見つけて名前呼んでくれた
できそこないの呼ばれない正解

恋が満ちたのは まばたきくらい一瞬の事で
こんな出来事はまるで誰かの夢物語だね
未完成ナイトもうちょっと待って
君と君の好きな人に
贈る精一杯「せーのっ!」
僕の宣戦布告

苦手な美容室に行って髪まで切って
7年連れ添ったメガネさん補欠降格
「男の子みたいだね」ってそりゃそうだけど
くすぐったいね初体験悪くはないかな?


そんな僕の勝ち目は相も変わらずしょっぱくて
関係ないね! でもちょっと神頼み

「恋に落ちたのはあなたのせいです…」
そんなに見つめて
0%が分かった上でも仕方ないんです
大事な人想ってるのは君も僕と同じだから
矛盾してるって? きっと全部全部好きなんだ

そんな顔させたくて見守ってきたナイトは
もう必要ないね
「おめでとう好きだった人」

恋が満ちたのは まばたきくらい一瞬の事で
こんな出来事はまるで誰かの夢物語だね
未完成恋愛ありがとう
君と君の好きな人に
贈る精一杯「せーのっ!」
僕は背伸びしてエール
