Song Connections / Remixes
- The ANOTHER version of R5 in the beatmania IIDX series has a longer piano roll. This version of R5 is known as R5 (SKA-ANA MIX).
- However, the ANOTHER charts in the beatmania III series do not include this extended piano roll.
- R5, like most other tiger YAMATO rave songs, is named after Reo Nagumo's car projects.
- According to GOLI's comments in the Q&A corner of the beatmania IIDX 4th style official website, the character in R5's overlays is actually based on VJ GYO.
- The character's movements resembled VJ GYO's movements while spinning the turntable, which GOLI incorporated in the animations.
- R5 is one of the first beatmania IIDX songs to have a Level 11 chart in Single Play mode (retroactively, as the 1-12 rating scale wouldn't be introduced until beatmania IIDX 12 HAPPY SKY). The other one is Holic, also debuting in the same game.
- In the beatmania III, DanceDanceRevolution, and beatmania IIDX games prior to beatmania IIDX 7th style, R5's artist was shown as tiger YAMATO with ultrabeatbox.
- R5's overlays were removed from the beatmania IIDX arcade games as of beatmania IIDX 20 tricoro due to technical issues.
- R5 was added to beatmania IIDX INFINITAS on November 9th, 2016 as part of the November 2016 Basic Subscription Monthly Songs.
- From August 2017, it can be purchased with BITs.
- From April 20th, 2022, it is available by default in beatmania IIDX INFINITAS (2020).
Song Production Information
That tiger, who continued to be silent, finally returned.
For fans who waited a long time, I received a comment from him while trembling with fear.
"This song expresses that tragic feeling of when the lowered car suspension kit of my GraTu* broke while driving on the side of a road.
Although it feels more like cyber-tic than RAVE, I heard that tigerYAMATO fans were requesting a sequel to R3, so I prepared this.
Please have fun playing it.

Video Production Information
Gah, didn't know that, tiger...
Excuse me, but it's not possible for me at all...
dj TAKA, it's too late to hear your comment~
Wasn't I assigned to create an acceptable techno-styled movie!
It's completely different~
You're seriously crazy, hey!
(For the time being, tiger went on a wandering journey again, so although both of us were nervous, we completed it without any incidents this time...)
Next time, please let me do it again!
I'll train hard!
