Akane Sasu (茜さす, "Crimson Painted") by Aimer is the ending song for Natsume Yuujinchou Go, the fifth season of the series.

It was released on November 16, 2016.

Bold text are the lines used in the short ED version of the song.

As fallen leaves dance around the road-bend together with the chasing dry winds
The shadows that grow tall, the rows of ginkgo trees, I wanted to see such a season

This shout with no reply eventually was erased away
To a place where no one is, far away, through the crowd, on this major street

Even though I had already noticed, I acted like I didn't know
Because I am all alone, I couldn't do anything

Saying goodbye to the mirage I had met under this crimson painted sky
The spilling weakness, from the palm of my hands, are just like a single bouquet of arranged flowers
With my wish fulfilled, I understand the pain

Even the cry of the migrating birds disappear into the clouds dyed in red
As I stand at a place where there is noone, all alone right now, far away from my road home

Even if I were to touch the colour of this scenery I noticed
Because I am all alone, I couldn't say a word

Kissing the mirage I loved so much under this sky caped in twilight
The evening stars still haven't shone yet, thus I feel quite foolish for waiting; where is the moon?
Feeling so torn, I understand the pain

What I was looking for in my repeating daily life
was a wish that would let me keep walking forward

Saying goodbye to the mirage I had met under this sky I yearn for
Placing the flow of time in the palm of my hands, just like a single petal
Our pain overlap, and I understand our encounter

Our encounters overlap, and I understand my wish

kareha mau machikado wo kakenuketeku kawaita kaze
nobita kage to ichou namiki kisetsu wo mitetakatta

henji no nai yobukoe wa attoiuma kakikesarete shimau
menuki doori hitonaminukete dokoka tooku daremo inai basho e

kidzuiteita noni nanimo shiranai furi
hitorikiri de ha nanimo dekinakatta

deaeta maboroshii ni sayonara wo akane sasu kono sora ni
koboreta yowasa ni te no hira wo ichirin no adabana sonna fuu ni
negai kanae itami wo shiru

wataridori no naku koe mo akaku somaru kumo ni kiete shimau
kaerimichi mo tooku hanarete ima wa hitori daremo inai basho de

kidzuita keshiki no iro ni fureta to shitemo
hitorikiri de ha koe mo dasenakatta

aishita maboroshi ni kuchidzuke wo tasogareta kono sora ni
mada yuube no hoshi tomoranai machi yoi mo oboroge tsuki wa doko ni
hikisakarete itami wo shiru

kurikaesu hibi no naka de sagashiteta no ha
aruki tsudzukeru tame no negai

deaeta moboroshii ni sayonara wo akogare wa kono sora ni
nagareta tsukihi wo te no hira ni hitohira no hanabira sonna fuu ni
itami kasane deai wo shiru

deai kasane negai wo shiru

枯れ葉舞う町角を 駆け抜けてく乾いた風
伸びた影とイチョウ並木 季節を見てたかった

返事のない呼ぶ声は あっという間 かき消されてしまう
目抜き通り 人波抜けて どこか遠く 誰もいない場所へ

気付いていたのに 何も知らないふり
一人きりでは 何もできなかった

出会えた幻にさよならを 茜さす この空に
零れた弱さに手のひらを 一輪の徒花 そんなふうに
願い叶え 痛みを知る

渡り鳥の鳴く声も 赤く染まる雲に消えてしまう
帰り道も遠く離れて 今は一人 誰もいない場所で

気付いた景色の色にふれたとしても
一人きりでは 声も出せなかった

愛した幻に口づけを 黄昏れた この空に
まだ夕べの星灯らない 待ち宵も朧げ 月は何処に
引き裂かれて 痛みを知る

くり返す日々の中で探してたのは
歩き続けるための願い

出会えた幻にさよならを 憧れは この空に
流れた月日を手のひらに 一片の花弁 そんなふうに
痛み重ね 出会いを知る

出会い重ね 願いを知る
