Trivia

Quickening's banner.
Quickening's DanceDanceRevolution ULTRAMIX banner.
  • According to dj TAKA, he was requested to write Quickening by NAOKI, who was the sound producer of Dance Maniax 2ndMIX.
    • And according to his comments on the official song page for Quickening on beatmania THE FINAL's website (archived), TAKA was stubbornly against Quickening being transplanted into beatmania at first. He allowed it to be in beatmania THE FINAL to "challenge players", in his own words.
      • TAKA also got requests to put Quickening in beatmania IIDX as early as 6th style. VJ YUZ himself offered to make the video for Quickening when it finally appeared in 9th style, which made TAKA happy.
  • Quickening is the last Dance Maniax song to date to appear in beatmania IIDX.
  • Despite that in the beatmania III THE FINAL, the BPM of Quickening's Double ANOTHER chart is shown as 149-150 on the song selection screen, it actually is a constant 149 BPM.
  • In DanceDanceRevolution ULTRAMIX, Quickening's artist is credited as dj. TAKA.
  • Quickening received a new Single EXPERT chart in DDR FESTIVAL -DanceDanceRevolution-. This chart was used as Quickening's Single CHALLENGE chart in DanceDanceRevolution EXTREME2 and Dancing Stage Max.
    • The DDR FESTIVAL Single EXPERT chart for Quickening is used in the arcade releases of DanceDanceRevolution.
  • Quickening received a unique video in DanceDanceRevolution EXTREME2, different from its beatmania IIDX video. This video was carried to the arcade releases in DanceDanceRevolution SuperNOVA.
    • This video is played full-screen and eliminates any on-screen dancers.
  • Quickening was one of 30 possible picks for songs for REFLEC BEAT groovin'!! Upper's 7th Set (Users' SELECTION) of the BEMANI MUSIC FOCUS unlocking system.
  • Quickening is unlockable in beatmania IIDX INFINITAS from October 4th, 2017, after purchasing its NORMAL, HYPER, and ANOTHER charts with BITs.
