あの泪もそっと 薄れていった

いつもそうだった 何があっても信じてた
まっすぐに 見つめてた


どれも大切なキオク・・・だ ・ か ・ ら

かけがえのない そんな日々を・・・
それぞれの未来 歩むとしても

まっすぐに いつかの遠い未来まで・・・

あの泪もそっと 薄れていった

いつもそうだった 何があっても信じてた
まっすぐに 見つめてた

知らず知らずに 助けられてた

何故か不思議なほど 隠れてゆくの

いつもそう在りたい これらずっと 信じたい
まっすぐに 見つめてる



どれも大切なキオク・・・だ ・ か ・ ら

かけがえのない そんな日々を・・・
それぞれの未来 歩むとしても

まっすぐに いつかの遠い未来まで・・・

Music Comment

Let's walk towards our respective futures with precious memories in our hearts. This sweet and sad graduation song is from DDR.

Song Production Information

DanceDanceRevolution EXTREME Original Soundtrack


DanceDanceRevolution EXTREME Weekly Journal


This is BeForU's first dramatic mid-tempo number.

People repeatedly experience meetings and partings, and live their lives with various overlapping thoughts. If there's a beginning, there's an end. But if there's an end, there's something that begins.

This song, named graduation, is not just about looking back at the past and ending a drama, but also about graduating from something and the future that starts tomorrow.

pop'n music


There are 4 versions of GRADUATION, and the version used this time in pop'n 12 is the game-sized short version used in DDR.

During the time when I was making this song, it coincided with the time when the main vocalist, Kosaka, graduated from high school.
Her real feelings were seemingly reflected in this song's lyrics.

Several times in life when people repeatedly "graduate", what do they gain and lose?

A "graduation" may be there to guide us to the path we should advance, for the sake of our future.

Character Information

In this season when cherry blossoms bloom... I'm graduating!
After all, a new world awaits me!


She was in a frog color last time, so this time I've selected white for spring.
Her ears look like cute kamaboko, don't they?
Graduation... speaking of graduation, in my case, I didn't really feel sad about the second button. My mood was more like "Yay~! I'm graduating~!", even if there were a lot of people unsure of what to do next.

Staff Comments



During the movie scene where she's running down a slope, I initially thought of including EMI's family-run electronics store on a telephone pole sign, but the idea was rejected with the risk it used another company's name. With the "Shiba" connection, it became "Biker Mikoshiba" (note: pop'n team designer).

I thought about telling him, but forgot to do so, so I vigorously got consent after video production concluded. I'm sorry Mikoshiba.

PS: Congratulations to everyone who graduated this year!

Graduation, that sounds nostalgic. Let's start walking forwards! It makes me feel like this.


It's been a long time~ since I graduated from school.
It's nostalgic, or rather it's fading from my memory.


It's been a long time since I graduated while weighing 60 kilograms.
I'll do my best to enroll again.


I wanted to have a graduation ceremony event, and thought about creating an original pop'n song for it, but there was already a signature graduation song in the BEMANI series, so I just crossed it over. At the end when Riyu's voice whispers "I'll never forget", it makes you feel more excited about graduation, but if it were a pop'n original song, I'll definitely assign this as a hidden button. But as I was thinking "I'll do it someday, I'll do it someday", I forgot to do this. So it might be assigned as a hidden button in the next game, so please search for Riyu's voice then. But it seems I'll somehow forget again. I'll never forget... to myself.
