Song Production Information

This song is a crossover from pop'n music 13 Carnival.
It's a song from around one year ago, and somehow it feels nostalgic,,,
By the way, no one believes my "story about how this song was created" on the official pop'n website, but it's true.

It's a memorable song for me, so I may present it in a different form someday! Maybe!

pop'n music


Hoho! It's LOVELY TRANS POP, huh,,,,,
It's lovely trance and pop huh,,,,,
It's lovely that it's a trance and popular song huh,,,,,,,
There's love and sadness in trance and popular songs huh,,,,,,,

But this is too long now and I want to abbreviate it, alright! Let's try to abbreviate it
,,,,,,, Love trap
Yes♪ It's rare that I got it correct on my first try♪ Also, you get "love trap" if you translate it♪
So everyone, instead of "lovely trance pop", let's say "love trap".
Well, let's say "I wanna~" in an English-sounding manner.

Let me tell you the story of how this song was created.

There was a girl in a wheelchair on the roof of the hospital where I was staying.
She was staring into the distance, but there was a middle school ahead of her gaze.
Apparently, the girl was staring at the field where the baseball and track-and-field boys were practicing.
At that time, something within me began welling up inside my chest.
She was there every day.

I didn't say anything else, but I returned to the hospital with an indescribable feeling within me during that time, and began playing the keyboard which the doctor requested for me to not use,,,,,,,

It's a straightforward song which aims for the sky,,, so please listen to,,,,,, "Catch Me".

Let's go!! Everyone, listen to our song, let's~ cheer up♪


When Yoshi-kun entrusted me with "something like this", I was able to create an amazing idol girl. I don't even know what my own hair looks like. I didn't use a three-color brush.

Yoshi-kun was recovering from illness, but he sang really well ahahahaha! He was laughing. He's really amazing!
It's a cute and cool song. Love... trap....

Staff Comments


The genre name is like five fruits on a three-layer cake. Filled with DJ Yoshi-kun's current groove.
HIKARI's 2P color somehow has a rainbow gradation through her whole body. Idols are amazing.


I remember that when I was able to clear it, Yoshi-kun was singing along behind me, so it was very difficult to play. It feels fully packed with delicious sounds!


The song isn't very compatible with Yoshi-kun's notecharts.
Ta tan. Tan tan tan tan tan, it doesn't work.


Nijiiro no~♪ Hey!! It's groovy from the beginning, yeah!!
The nice sound of the trance feeling is also playing in the BACK.
When I recently listened to trance, it was techno! There's many things I want to get into~.
This song makes me feel happy.

Seiya Murai

I heard that he wrote this song on a hospital bed, but it sounds very positive~, right? Was he in a trance from taking painkillers?


Yoshi-kun, this is a great speedy song!
It somehow feels nice to have ○● appear over the rainbow!
Nijiiro, by the way, why's the song title Nijiiro??
