咲き誇れ 花華と 儚く散る 紅牡丹
今宵はお祭り 浴衣姿が 嬉しくて
手と手をつないで 太鼓轟く 盆踊り

踊りゃんせ 踊りゃんせ 賑やかに 雅に
見やしゃんせ 見やしゃんせ 夜空 彩る華

咲き乱れ 花華と 響く菊先 鮮やか
咲き誇れ 花華と 儚く散る 紅牡丹

静寂が 包み込む 黒煙だけ残されて
見えないよ キミの手が 遠い夢の夏景色

咲き乱れ 花華と 響く菊先 鮮やか
咲き誇れ 花華と 儚く散る 紅牡丹


sakihokore hanabana to hakanaku chiru benibotan
koyoi wa omatsuri yukata sugata ga ureshikute
te to te wo tsunai de taiko todoroku bonodori

odoryanse odoryanse nigiyaka ni miyabi ni
miyashanse miyashanse yozora irodoru hana

sakimidare hanabana to hibiku kikusaki azayaka
sakihokore hanabana to hakanaku chiru benibotan

seijaku ga tsutsumikomu kokuen dake nokosarete
mienai yo kimi no te ga tooi yume no natsu keshiki

sakimidare hanabana to hibiku kikusaki azayaka
sakihokore hanabana to hakanaku chiru benibotan

Song Production Information


So when I was deciding to make a song, it took me about an hour having to decide what to make, before deciding to make a joyful song with a festival feeling.
I cleared myself up from some pent-up anger with this song since I haven't been to a festival for the past few years.
I remember always buying a candy apple when I went to a festival.
But I eventually developed some cavities that became fully evident when I ate a pizza, and thinking about it now still gives me a toothache.
Everyone be careful of cavities!


Hello, a☆ru here, I was the one chosen to sing Benibotan!
In the previous game beatmania IIDX 21 SPADA, I sang the song Close the World feat. a☆ru, and the staff were very pleased, so they let me sing another song!

Benibotan, one of my favorite songs, which I like to sing to myself!
This song has a different atmosphere, more happy and cute, unlike Close the World, so I put my best effort to make it as cute as possible.
The movie is also very cute, so cute that you may lose your combo if you look to the side...
Foxy-chan is so cute, I want to keep her.

Since I sang so hard with great feeling, I hope that you all like it.
Please come and play!!

Video Production Information


Nice to meet all you IIDX fans, my name is motoco.
I've always wanted to make anime... so when I got a call to make something for IIDX, I was so glad.
I was fired up, and produced it happily.

From the moment that I first listened to this music, I was caught up by the melody and the beautiful voice of aru.
"Let me make the movie for this song," I asked.
I felt that using a miko-chan and fox for the character would convey the theme and harmony of the song.
The fox's tail looks really fluffy because it's used as the pillow for the miko-chan.
From being a pillow to caring for others! She's very good at it.
