Song Production Information
Here's another all-out happy happy hardcore song. The image is of Ageha dancing about in a really cheerful setting. ... well, that's what I thought, but I wonder what everyone else's impressions are? As a music composer, I think about that a lot. Let's find out.
DAISUKE, who you will probably remember from the dance routines, said "Ryu☆ songs have this incredible feeling of daytime to them." — I see ... that may be!
My assistant, H, said "It feels like Ageha dancing around in a swirl of macho." — I see ... I don't know about that one ;_;
