The summer I spent with you, is like a faraway dream
the fireworks display that disappeared into the sky
That’s pretty much the perfect refrain for ReLIFE, which ends with Hishiro likening Kaizaki to those vanishing fireworks, in addition to decribing similar moments between Kariu and Oga. I can see why the producers dusted off a sixteen-year-old single to bridge the gap between the 12th and 13th episodes.
Also, Whiteberry is singing about a Summer festival, so of course they’re donning yukata while playing. How badass is that?

Here’s a more contemporary version of the song, covered by the vocaloid Hatsune Miku (based on the voice of Fujita Saki, AKA Inami from Working!!).
This version was used in the ED of Watamote Episode 6, but I never watched that show:
I like both, but I think the original has more charm.
