Song Production Information

So Nekomata Master is going into electro house? When I received the request to make a song, they wanted me to make an electro house song but it ended up something far different (laughs).
While I added elements of EDM to the song, I really put a lot of my personality into the song.
Once the track was finished, the song was released in October.
SYNTHESIZED 5 contains the long version of the song, so please check it out.

Video Production Information

Taiyo Yamamoto

Recently, my popularity has exploded like a planet Yara, so I was contacted into doing a 2nd season here.
I feel that I had a few good years for myself, so I decided to make this.

So, when I was working in this song, I noticed that few movies in IIDX that emphasized color.
The word illuminate means lighting up something, so I wanted to show how items would behave when different types of light shined on them.

If you look carefully, the sequences from this movie are linked to the movie in subtractive and some of the sequences can be linked together.
It may make the movie sequences more interesting for you in the beginning.
