Song Production Information

beatmania IIDX


Did I introduce myself? Nice to meet you.
It's Linus, written as ライナス. (Not リヌス)

This song is about the love and regret one feels for something cherished since childhood that cannot be thrown away, like a blanket, which I naturally made this up just now, but the truth is that I was threatened by many people, "If the song title isn't decided in 5 minutes, it will be 'Pa○tograph'", so I thought to myself, "there aren't many people who know what I'm talking about", and I suddenly decided on the title from a lovable object on my desk.

Or rather, after I decided the genre as LOUNGE POP, I wondered if it was beautiful that every "L" initial was unified, with "L" as the "L" in LOVE.

I also like girls, so I decided to write songs that I thought girls would like, but rather, I was told by TAKA, "As expected here, you have to make a ○○-style song".
I'm personally a survivor from the ○○ style. No, I think it's a different person.

Or rather, shiro's movie was decided to be included from the beginning, which gave me huge pressure.
I'm sorry that I couldn't make eye contact with you because of my guilt at the final stages.

There's a rumor that my notecharts are difficult, but I don't think so. That's a lie. I can't do it. They're easy at the end.
Kakaka, I'm sorry. There weren't any bad intentions. Please forgive me.
It's possibly useless even if I say it manly. Hiroshima may get rather angry. I'm suspicious.

By the way, I'm busy with the development of another model at the same time this time. Well, I don't think anyone's interested...

Thank you all for your comments on the crossed over songs from other games.
Before I knew it, as it became my turn, I was impressed that everyone wrote well so I didn't have to rewrite them.
Well, I'll gradually discuss the two game festivals. I don't have anything to write about, but I'll do my best.

I was already asked about how to read the song title previously, so the answer is Linus (ライナス).
The title was going to be "Pantograph", but I'm glad it wasn't.
I'm glad I didn't do the EX score, right? Yes, pop'n 8 has rumors of being filled with ghost charts as well. Soyuko and Suyuko, work on it!
Or rather, at the data deadline, I was conflicted about reducing the notes of this song from pop'n or fixing the 321 notecharts, but I eventually chose 321, so these notecharts became compatible with IIDX. If I had time to recreate them in IIDX, I wanted to approach it from another direction. As always, the work estimate is still very close to the deadline.

Looking back, this song was created after TAKA said, "Something like an instrumental theme song included as a song from a concept album". I first thought about making it more fashionable lounge, but after deciding on the song title first and children became the theme, I twisted it in this direction. So if you listen carefully, there are children making noise from beginning to end.
While I was at it, I impulsively changed my alias, so I was a bit honored and a little sorry to have various names brought up as my identity. Rather, it was enjoyable to create a person like that. It seems there's a feeling that everyone wanted to create many aliases, but I didn't understand it.

By the way, it appears in Sado because it's a tribute to the Niigata Prefecture, where the grandmother of shiroro's creator, shiro, resides.

Ah, I have told all I have to say. I have no regrets about Linus. It's still Linus at the moment.

Video Production Information


It's an energetic song, but anyways, it exploded with power. Hmm, speaking of exploding with power, there's a brief appearance of USAO-kun's friendship in the video.


It co-stars a certain pop-kun from pop'n music.... If you want to know why, it's a secret...

Character Information

It's a white owl which brings happiness. They're always happy.


I was also very happy when I was making the animation. Owls are cute.

The truth is that I planned to ask his creator, shiro, to do this one too, but due to contractual reasons, I had to be in charge of it. I apologize to all of his fans.

As shiroro's design is simple, the small differences in his dark and bright eye positions made it difficult to completely change his facial expressions. It was veeeeery difficult.
