Par la fenêtre de ta Fiat 500
tu me regardais et je t'ai vu
tes goûts semblaient parfait

On s'est compris tout de suite à fond
et des rendez-vous de la nuit
parfois on s'attend sous la pluie
et tout, c'était miracle

La musique !
les yeux dans les yeux
nos histoires romantiques
on commence tous les deux

près de moi...


By the window of your Fiat 500
You looked at me and I saw you
Your taste seemed perfect

We understood each other right away
More than one rendez-vous at night
Sometimes we hear each other in the rain
And everything, was a miracle

The music!
Our eyes in a gaze
Our romantic stories
That we both start

close to me...

Music Comment

That popular Dance Maniax song appears in pop'n!

Song Production Information

beatmania IIDX


I like girls (laughs), so I tend to write songs which girls seem to like.
For this song, I tried to accumulate the piano line in the intro, quality vocals, bossa-like rhythm and acoustic guitar, and French items that girls would like.
It's so moody, isn't it?!
"Mobo★Moga" is an abbreviation of "Modern Boy・Modern Girl", but this song title is directly taken from a delicious restaurant in Shibuya called Mobo Moga that I used to visit.

Dance Maniax

This cute French pop song starts with piano playing and light percussion. The whispery female vocals perfectly match the polished melody. This fashionable song sounds like it was from a one scene cut of a French movie. By the way, the title "Mobo・Moga" stands for "Modern Boy・Modern Girl". If anything, won't you decide to dance while wearing French-styled fashion?

To commemorate its inclusion in four game series, it's about time to tell the truth.

There's a "~ballroom dance" on the third floor of an old building barely outside the town center, isn't there?
When I was walking around town, for some reason I stared at middle-aged people dancing in grandiose outfits through the glass window, and they seemed to be moving at a high-speed.
It's just like fast-forwarding a video.
"This is it! This is the world!"
While thinking this, I immediately started writing this song the next day.
MOBO★MOGA is a ballroom dance song. The concept is a sped-up ballroom dance.
I created this song while thinking about what middle-aged people are doing in that unique and narrow world. It's passionate. And strong.
The orchestra was more heavy at first. It seemed to interact with the rhythms. It's so moody, isn't it?
Unfortunately, when I added the vocals, it became fashionable... damn it! (laughs)
But, I prefer fashionable girls like Toffee&Tart than middle-aged women, so that's great.

CS Information Data

DanceDanceRevolution EXTREME CS (North America)

"MOBO MOGA" by Orange Lounge is an enjoyable blend of bossa-styled sounds and vocals with drum'n'bass land lounge. "MOBO MOGA" is very fun to dance to and has timeless appeal with its very catchy melodies.

Video Production Information


It was a very cute song, so I made a video using twin girls with a theme of a "POP LIFE-like playing house" (because two things that are symmetrical form a cute image).
... However, during the latter half of production, I realized that the title meant "Modern Boy & Girl".... how disappointing.

Character Information

These twin girls are 19 years old and type B. Tart (blonde hair) is a pâtissier, and Toffee (brown hair) is studying to become a web designer.


These characters are from a certain beatmania IIDX 5thstyle song. Their animations are also based on the IIDX original.
These characters have also appeared in a certain Gitadora game, and before I knew it, they were on four different games including IIDX. Wow.
Best regards to the Orange Lounge festival, and please enjoy the other games too.

Staff Comments


This song is adorable, so I drew a picture of a large eye. (It's a bit scary though..) The song's sequences are relatively difficult! That gap is probably great.

It's fairy tale-like~! I wanted to make the movie like that. A toy airplane is spinning in the background of the Ferris wheel movie. Did you notice it? It's a movie with a spinning person's silhouette dancing. I've never done ballroom dancing, but I tried to create a dance with that image.
