Song Production Information
About a year and a half ago, a "ParaParaParadise" cabinet was placed next to the IIDX cabinet in the production room. I personally loved "YESTERDAY", which seems to be one of the biggest hits in the SUPER EUROBEAT history.
I never properly listened to Eurobeat until that moment, but this song allowed me to change some of my preconceived stereotypes about the genre. Anyways, the song and synths both are just beautiful.
Video Production Information
This song is quite memorable for HES.
It aired considerably around a year ago on media such as TV, right?
I didn't think deeply about the meaning of the lyrics, but the image of a teenage girl seemed suitable(?).
That's why for the 16-color animation, I intentionally tried to draw something like this pose after taking a photo the previous year. A hot summer day bursting with youth. A photo of memories. That kind of image.
And the movie is a terrifying work completed by YUZ in one day as material for Para Para Paradise (It's not in a movie state, so it was a bit difficult). (Those who've made even one short movie should appreciate that this speed is extraordinary.)
Check this out too!
A normal notechart like this just seems to suit myself as a LIGHT7 advocate, and I enjoy playing it while listening to the song. Of course when playing at a store, there's a large crowd, but I choose LIGHT7 if it's 7 stars or higher. I'll be happy if the song is played at a loud volume and synchronized with LIGHT7 at the arcade.
