瞳を閉じて 思う先は 未来だけさ 見つけられたら そのまなざしは 心解き放てそう 言葉の壁をブチ破って イメージの世界に飛び乗って 行方知れずの心を 輝ける明日へ 飛ぶんだ Let's get start！ 1,2,3で飛ぶんだ！ お好みの羽を手に入れ 淡い風に乗って Dreamin' sunで光った 虹色に身を任せたら 飛びたてるさ 空の彼方までも行こう 呼ぶ声が聞こえる 瞳を閉じた そのまなざしで 瞳を閉じて そう輝いた日々

Song Production Information
This is was a pure musical song. The tune was completely done with Programming, "Gt", and Bass, other than the parts that I sang.
I tried to use a method that balanced the combination of raw "Gt", Bass, Rhythm, and "Synth" that intensifies as the constant beat increases.
Even though I was able to write the lyrics, I arranged the tune first while I created the image. The abstract space left in between can make the final image even better if you make it up along the way. Since it was part of the image, something with such emptiness makes it a little harder, but when the effectiveness of it increases, you can find out the whole picture of creating it if you do it piece-by-piece, and when you eventually finish something after writing, hearing, and seeing what the final outcome of the entire thing becomes, it's something that can turn out great.
Video Production Information
The image I get when I hear this song was in the middle of summer. Beautiful weather. And gathering with your buddies in the early morning. And driving there by car there and back on the same day! The BPM of this song was very high and upbeat! With such a cheerful and energetic feeling, what do you think?
In one perspective, you see the visualization and the song. In the other, the gentle breeze blows, and you are at a high level where you get the most beautiful view. When you lie down, you close your eyes to see something enchanting. It's like going on a journey to the other world where you don't have a care in the world! Then, you doze off into a lazy feeling.
You have to cover both of this fields, so drawing something that connects to the song, and the "otherworldly paradise" that you can only see in a dream is the straightforward way to go, but I really regret that because of the time restrictions, I only took the method that connected to the song, not the image I imagined.
I was expected to do a video based on "closing your eyes, and doing what you think." by everyone and Yu Takami, and the characters that appear in the video are similar in that it was expected by everyone with complete agreement, not the direction which you personally go.
But because it's that way, when you image various types of people, you can...truly see the cute and upbeat charm of this tune even when it's going at full speed.
Oh, and it was GOLI's idea to make the girls drive in a new, open car.
Because of the movie's environment, a rental car with the upper area exposed was an alteration to the girls' typical sports car.
For them, the time of a student is precious, and going for a drive in a car while you're accompanied by your best friends while you go to the sea and back is a lot of fun! Going the distance made it all the more experience better, but doing this meant being placed in more danger because of a far more exposed car (like a suicide seat).
I kinda became dazed from the weird impression that the car was like a motorcycle (because of no attached roof), and it's also different from a bicycle, but the outrageous design ideas were fun! It was definitely a great memory for me...at the top of your thoughts means to get to your destination, that only the driver and the passengers can feel because the interior of the car is also more exposed, letting you feel the outside air, which I could portray the girls feeling with the best expressions on their face.
The car's model wasn't owned by me, but this was the first time I ever made one like this! Is this being said with the correct kanji? But either way, it was a dream come true getting to draw and model something like this.
Although I kinda aimed for a stylization from the "Kaaba toor" movie which was placed in a former European beat and display, but the considering of the little kinds of things like that can remain in people's memories, or long enough at least, is generally known, so the difficulty of portraying this and that the movie was to be made in a casual everyday feel in my own style was a bit painful!
