    General CommentMy intial reaction was that it's about someone with a terminal illness going to die soon. Like cancer maybe.
    And their partner went and killed themself for him. I can't tell if either mabe they killed themself to maybe donate their organs to save him (the narrator), or just because s/he wanted to be together in death. I'm leaning towards the first idea though.

    Well, that's what I gathered just by skimming over it. Could be totally wrong :)

    General CommentI agree with you, FilthHigh. When I read the lyric translation, it reminded me of someone with a fatal disease of sorts and the memo certainly sounded like said person's lover had killed himself to offer up his organs (or some other body part) in order to save the one he loved. This is such a sad story :( When I first watched the PV for Zakurogata no Yuuutsu, I couldn't quite tell what was going on since the song was really upbeat, fast-paced, and overall didn't express extreme emotions (like anger, for example). The buoyant tune of the song completely masked the tragic tale it was relating (mainly because I'm an illiterate idiot when it comes to Japanese). Asides from that, I aboslutely LOVE how intense and poetic this song is.

    General CommentI love songs like this one where you have an upbeat feel and vibe to the music but the lyrics are the complete oposite and a total contrast. Even the name is a bit like this. Pomegranite shaped melancholy... You don't really associate pomegranites with melancholy especially not the shape. This is a deeply moving song and yet again another masterpeice from Ruki and the gang. There were even tears in my eyes the first time I saw the english translation to this song. Arigato for posting this ^_^

    General Commenti think there might be a connection between this and Miseinen o.o if you look at the music videos you may notice that they both have the little boy, the tv, and the pomegranate goop
