Song Production Information

beatmania maniac-tracks Booklet

Songtress Sana has become a vital part of beatmania, pop'n music, and other music games from KONAMI.
This is the first song to feature her.
I assigned the "Papaya" scat vocals to the buttons, wanting to make a song that was easy for casual players to approach and also pleasant to the ear.
