Song Production Information
pop'n music 6 song. Because it wasn't in 8, I resurrected it in IIDX.
Actually, this song is among my very favorites.
Though if you listen, you might catch a glimpse of some poor composition at times in the song (laughs), and what I consider mediocre melodies/phases at times to me.
This is a Level 1 song on LIGHT7, so I recommend it to those starting off to be recommended to play this song by their friends.
