まだ見ぬ明日へと 突き進む勇気が

(We shine our 7Keys)
生まれ変わってゆく この願いが

Don't be afraid myself


Don't be afraid myself
Don't be afraid yourself


mada minu asu e to tsuki susumu yuuki ga 
areba tsuyoku nareru kara

(We shine our 7Keys)
umare kawatte yuku kono negai ga
itsuka kimi ni todoku you ni

Don't be afraid myself
bokura no asu wa
kagayaki tsuzukeru tame dake ni aru
mirai e to hashiri dase

bokura dake ga
mitsumete ita eien wo koete
ima, tobi tatou
mirai e to hashiri dase

Don't be afraid myself
Don't be afraid yourself
kokoro ni hibiku MELODY wa itsuka
kitto kimi wo terasu hikari


You'll have the courage to carry on to that new tomorrow
It will make you stronger

(We shine our 7keys)
Someday this newly reborn dream
Will reach out to you ...

Don't be afraid myself
The future that we'll share
Exists just so we can let it shine,
So run on into the future

Let's stand up and fly
Crossing over that eternity that
We have sought together;
Let's run into the future

Don't be afraid myself
Don't be afraid yourself
Someday, this melody that echoes in your heart
Will be a light that shines down on you

Song Production Information


platoniX has changed its membership from its original lineup; it's now a two-member unit consisting of myself and the vocalist Junko Hirata.

The title basically means "Don't be afraid of myself". I think there are a lot of problems that can arise, even just in day to day life. You can challenge these problems through work, study ... or a difficult song. Nothing will change through fear. This is the sort of concept Junko Hirata and I arrived at through discussion. You can think of this as platoniX' battle song for everyday life.

Junko Hirata

After talking to Tatsh, we decided to make a song to cheer people on infused with platoniX's own personality.

Life is filled with all sorts of good and bad things, so we all want to be strong and look cool! It's not so much about the sense of achievement from being able to overcome large obstacles ... Yes, I think it's that sparkling figure that is one's real self ... I hope everyone can feel this way by listening to this song.

Finally, I think the dance number looks really great thanks to the work put in by back dancers Natsumi and Yukari. Definitely play this song!

Video Production Information


This is my first contribution to beatmania. When I first heard the song and saw the dance, I was tempted to just use the raw material itself as the finished product. I thought a lot of things like, "Don't we want to show the whole dance!?" and "Isn't it already synched to the music!?" Through a lot of trial and error, I used effects and image shots to try to get back to my original goal of "show the whole thing!" instead of cutting out parts of the routine. I tried to reconstruct as much of the original through editing and processing, but what do you all think?
