Lyrics

Japanese

大さじすり切り分の
嘘も愛もやたら壮大に綴ったストーリー
御都合展開分かっていても
悪も善も声も恋も
活字になって彩る
 
憧れの
トキメキの2コマ
貴方が叶えて欲しいの
 
このカタテに恋のお手本
再現不可能な気がした
空いたカタテに卑怯なほどに
不意に重なるその手が
本当、ずっと単純なシナリオでも
ときめいてしまうわ
 
 
このカタテの恋のお手本
再現したような1コマ
握るカタテに刻むような
脈が響いている
それだけ
 
 
もっと、ずっと素敵なシナリオ
期待してるわ

Congratulations!
Ever since I nominated this song for the second screening, the team told me "it's wac-ish" and "I thought wac liked it".
I didn't think it's me-ish as they said, but I certainly like it, huh, it's different to what I like!
When I heard the drums in this song's intro, I almost decided to send it to the second screening. You can understand very well that it's important to so-called grasp songs. I listened to all the songs in this public contest from beginning to end, but when there are over thousands of competition applications, I've heard they can be selected within the first few seconds. Please be careful of this when you apply for various public contests in the future!

PON

This super maiden song starts with fierce drums.
The key points in its selection is the well polished song composition and modern-styled melody.
Even though this song's arrangement is standard and feels analog, the phrases considered technical elements & button placement, and is firmly game-like.
That fusion extent is perfectly BEMANI!! With that feeling, it felt like it had strength which rivals existing songs.

Originally, singing software was in charge of the lead vocals, but we replaced it for this recording.
Nevertheless, the singing takes advantage of its original nuances, so NU-KO's individuality appears, and I'm addicted to this great feeling.

Harunaba

Nice to meet you, and hello pop'n music, KONAMI, and BEMANI fans!
My name is "Harunaba".

Congratulations to "pop'n music Sunny Park" for opening!'

This time, I'm sincerely happy that "Katate dokusho" will be included!
As for pop'n music, I'm really honored to be included in the same game as the lovely BEMANI artists and my favorite anime theme songs.
I'm really grateful to those who supported and voted for me!

Excuse me for talking a bit about my memories, but I had an old friend who played pop'n at the arcade, and the song he played was very pop, sparkling, and cute, and as a boy who loved heavy metal music back then, I had quite shocking memories of it!

So, when I found out about this contest, I created this song by expressing the vague memories I had of the shocking, sparkling pop feeling I felt back then in my own way!
(When I recently searched for it, it turned out to be Parquets' "Tsubomi" [AC15])
Although pop'n has songs from various genres, that song's image was strong.

This time, NU-KO sang this song, and as you heard, her voice's texture, expression, and articulation is wonderfully very satisfying!!
Finally, when I heard wac say "do you want to include NU-KO in it?", I also thought NU-KO matched this song, so it was a completely perfect decision!
I'm really grateful that she sang it!!

When I entered this contest, I didn't know anything about the BEMANI community, but they're wonderful and overflowing with the BEMANI fans' warmth, that I'm now ashamed!
And I was able to meet and get along with various people through this project! I'm really happy.

Since there are many band members around me who don't know anything about BEMANI, I personally want to spread this to them!

Finally, I'd be more than happy if you enjoy it in the game!
Thank you very much!

NU-KO

Hello poppers! I'm NU-KO, who loves BPM188 songs.
Some people probably noticed this, but actually, both Renaikansoku and Katate dokusho's BPM is somehow the same. It's amazing, I also noticed this after PON told me. So, there's absolutely no doubt I'm surely loved by the BPM188 god.

This time, I'm the vocalist in charge of Katate dokusho, written by Harunaba. It was initially sung by speech synthesis software, but I sang as its replacement.

Katate dokusho is also a cute love song with romantic lyrics. In other words, Harunaba is a romanticist!
I also paid attention to the detailed vocal nuances and sang with all my might to faithfully recreate it.
I hope you can feel the unique expressions and vocal quality unique to human voices.

This is a song Harunaba made with all his heart, and I also received Harunaba's feelings in this song and sang it with all my heart.
By all means, please listen to it in the cabinet!
Also, the notecharts are fun to play.

eimy

This very cute song feels like starting to run, but it's fully energetic that you can see the notes!

The song title "Katate dokusho" feels very nice, like daily reading, right?
That's why only this girl is in the song! Micchan reappears here thanks to your requests.
I was also happy to be able to create her animations after a long time♪
Since I also similarly read girls' manga everywhere, I tried to express this excitement by overexaggerating her.
It's enjoyable after all to carefully read these cute lyrics and think about them here and there.

pop'n music Sunny Park

It's finally useful to study about love through girls' manga!?
Micchan's exciting daily life has arrived♪

eimy

There's no doubt Micchan's clothes were bought here! She started as a middle school student discussing clothing (alone), selfishly growing her hair while saying "I'm growing up as a maiden~", and doing whatever she wanted.
Actually, since Micchan's eyes behind her glasses were officially sparkling at the beginning of April, although I didn't hesitate to make them sparkle, my eyes apparently also look like that, and I have fond memories of how tokky was seriously worried.
I exaggerated the girls' manga-tone with my touch, and Micchan clearly stepped up. She doesn't just read manga, but also studies and cooks. Since she can't exercise, she probably admires that child in the soccer club~ (this is a long delusion, so I removed it)
When I listened to the "completed version", I was very surprised that NU-KO's voice was included, as expected! She suits it~. And sounds very cute.
Thank you very much for this exciting song!

Staff Comments

KC

The speedy piano intro was cool and cute.

masaru

The piano section in the beginning is nice.
Something's starting! It feels exciting!

PON

The crunchy guitar cutting is pleasant.
Surrender yourself to this speedy song, and please comfortably press to the drum barrage and brass.
I'm in charge of the gameplay and NU-KO's voice editing.
I enjoy editing other people's voices than my own, since there's no worldly thoughts.

TAMA

The cute song and NU-KO's vocals suit each other and have a lovely result, right?

Ga~su~

I thought eimy was drawing a manga, but it was Micchan's animations.
It's exciting like reading a girls' manga.

tokky

Mi, Micchan's amazing, the manga's amazing! Furthermore, it came from a book! There were continuous wow, wow surprises.
Ever since NAOTO came here, I never thought the day would come when a girl would appear in pop'n,,! Although I was surprised, I also thought it was amazing this time. Girls' imaginations are terrific!
I'm looking forward to seeing how shiny Micchan is when she next appears!

Chihi

Micchan was the first character to be decided among the 2nd Mintsuku public song contest songs.
Although the lyrics feel positive for Micchan, I wonder~ if she's just thinking about it and not actually saying anything, which makes this child cuter!
Is she imagining a girl falling in love following kaorin? Or delusional? I once again felt that power is important.
I clearly see eimy's growth (in delusional power) through Micchan's animations, which easily surpasses Micchan's previous heart-pounding manga FEVER action!
I've been slightly worried for eimy before, but when I saw the animations, I seriously became worried for tokky.
Nevertheless, I think there are slightly eccentric people who make interesting things, so I'd like them to quickly grow as they are without causing trouble in real life.
I wonder how the vocals will sound in the end~? When I was thinking about this, my, my NU-KO came! She sounds cute! Thank you~

shio

From the intro, I can feel the sparkling and moving power of a maiden's heart. The power of really falling in love is amazing..!
It's wonderful that Micchan has a quick power up in delusions. I extremely want to see eimy like this. I still won't forget the saying "life is somewhat of a delusion".
Before I knew it, I was surprised that the vocals changed to NU-KO. PON's satisfied face came to my mind. I cunningly~ wanted to meet NU-KO! But good job, PON!

Mameshiba

Since I was confused about the genre name, I thought of various things as an amateur, and it was better to have a gap after all, so I thought of the genre name OTOME DRUM'N'BASS!
When I forgot to tell PON and wac about this, it became GIRLS ROMANCE POP, and I'm glad I forgot to tell them.

This song makes me want to sing it.
Especially the "ki ga shita" part.
I wish I was at karaoke~.

If Nagareboshi sonic is the ending theme, this is the opening theme.
I was deluded that Micchan and CHINATSU were friends~, but are their uniforms different?

wac

Anyways, since it says dokusho, I initially thought the genre was called GIRLS NOVEL.
But when you carefully listen to the lyrics, they say "one panel".
When I realized that this person is seriously reading manga, I rethought the genre in a panic, and among the various candidates, Harunaba chose this genre. GirlRoPop.
The other candidates included "SHOUJO MANGA", "GIRLS COMIC", "1 page of love", and "MANGA HEROINE". I can't help it.

We wanted the vocals to match the song's image and further combine with the public contest applicants, so we requested for the public vocal audition winner NU-KO.
They are a young duo with an average age which is rarely seen in pop'n, no, BEMANI's history. They're shining!

Harunaba also has loud songs included in VOLTEX.
I'd like him to take advantage of BEMANI's entire scope and spread his name, and I think he's a musician who can do just that.
