Song Production Information
An overwhelming sensation of freshness, Hiroshi's third song is a track I don't think we've seen in beatmania until now. Not trying to sound mean here, but I think this track separates the real Hiroshi Watanabe fans from the rest.
If his schedule allows it, I'll ask him to appear next time.
Video Production Information
When I first heard this song, I got a "steam train" feel to it.
It feels like it's rolling up smoke and running strong.
And what's more impressive is the "pop~" sound.
I saw the sound as a "whistle".
I made Mari-chan, who as I said on the 2nd style website, "maybe I'll bring her back next time".
I remembered the time when I was in charge of the beatmania animations back in the day (3rdMIX), and I tried to draw it with a slightly depressed look.
