Song Production Information
Hello, everyone ... it has been a while.
I hope you all remember me ...
I have not done any BEMANI work in a long time, but thanks to dj TAKA I have gotten the chance to write a song for you all again. It is always a lot of fun, and I am really grateful for the chance.
Hmm, well, let's see, the song I have got this time is kind of reflective of instable and muddled current affairs in the world and the way it has reflected into the instability and muddiness of my daily life. That is the sort of thing I wanted to convey (meaning unknown).
Heh, just kidding! I actually had a lot of fun writing this song!
If everyone else likes it too, it will make me HAPPY☆
Video Production Information
The illustrations here are all based on images that stem from the name of this song; I have tried to portray them as accurately as possible ... The setting ... well, it is more Japanese. I tried to give it meaning and style from the Bakumatsu period [at the end of the Tokugawa shogunate ca. 1853-1867]. The people of that time, just like people today, must have had problems that stemmed from misunderstandings. This song is really very refined and cool, so I tried to refine my drawing style to match it.
"Patriotism", politics, love, hatred, ambition, devotion ... what is left at the end is just a little bit of conscience. (This is kind of like the opposite of Setsugekka ... )
