Song Production Information


A constant hit-maker over the entirety of IIDX's history, Mr. Ueno shows off his newest composition. Now, IIDX has been given a much more casual feeling.
Despite that Asuka.M is a regular in the IIDX series, I don't think I've ever met her before. Do you think you can tell what kind of person she is from her singing voice?

Video Production Information


Mr. U's DANCE POP songs are not only songs, but also the lyrics themselves are often catchy, and as a movie director, it was my longest wish throughout the series to prepare something that captures that world and gives a sense of drama (for example, like the opening and ending movies of a drama).
This time, I challenged myself to create a 3DCG sissy based on the image of the song.
This sister would later go on to dance at a disco and drive a sports car...
However, although this kind of movie requires a lot of work to create characters and animate, it's fun for the sake of having a lot of freedom, but the biggest obstacle is that once you start making things up, the work plan becomes a bottomless morass.
In fact, I've kept it to the minimum line at the expected level to balance the overall schedule.
For me, I would like to continue to work on these methods as much as I can, but the only reaction I've gotten from my team has been "woo hoo", so it's really up to you all to decide where we go from here...
