実際そうはいかんよ? 君を前にしちゃきっと固まってる

一歩前に踏み出せずに情けないぜ 何してんだ!
カッコなんか気にしなくていいや この想いを止めるな!


saikin taichou wa waruka nai ga shinzou ga taka natte maitte iru
entenka no atooshi demo tte boku no TENSION wa kyuujoushou furutenda
yuuki shidai de mou sa, kyori nanka jiyuujizai datte moete iru
KISS shitai kuchibiru neratte TARGET shibotte kyuu sekkinshite yarunda!

"you wa yuugenjikkou"... dekiru nara kurou wa shinee
jissai sou wa ikan yo? kimi wo mae ni shicha kitto katamatteru

kanjin na toko de itsudatte okubyou no mushi ga nakidashite
ippomae ni fumidasezu ni nasake naize nani shitenda!
"tsutawan nai sa, douse muri da" tte kimetsukete iru sono mae ni
kakko nanka ki ni shinakute ii ya kono omoi wo tomeru na!

Song Production Information


Doesn't this song get more exciting just before the chorus and then it goes in a bright direction!?
The way this song gets slightly melancholic is irresistible.
You can get the feeling that love is not that simple.
Love is difficult, isn't it? Really... but what about the excitement in your heart??? I can't help about this heartwrenching feeling.

Video Production Information

This time, I was in charge of the song "Guarana" by Sukima Switch.
Isn't it perfect for the current hot season of powerful, refreshing, and heartwarming songs.

The first question that happened when I started working on it was, what the heck is a "guarana" anyway?
Since it was an important keyword, I immediately began researching and found that it's a carbonated drink (cola color) originally produced in Brazil.
And although I was impressed, I thought that it would be difficult to use it as the image for the illustrations.

The lyrics also have a strong romantic tone, so I decided to GO with the image of "sweet and sour soda-like love", and my usual original worldview.

A self-sufficient life on a peaceful ranch.
Jake is a young man who loves to fly in his beloved plane, GUARANA, which he inherited from his late father.
He can fly through the sky better than anyone else, yet he is too shy to say what he wants to say in front of the woman he loves.
She is Claire, the beautiful daughter of a landowner.
She has bred many thoroughbreds with pedigrees, and they have won many awards.
Jake always thinks about her when he is flying in the sky with his feelings for her.
What will happen to the distance between these two people who are in such different positions to love?

And so on.

This song had a clearer tone than usual, and the lyrics were very well told.
The number of cuts increased as I was drawing.
If the final climax of the song makes the player feel as if the music and video are one, it will be a success!

I hope that the song will be enjoyed by many players because of the effort that went into it.
