Song Production Information
Biting into something with beautiful crimson lips and teeth, could you find the words to describe such beauty?
Vermillion was originally written for SIRIUS, but following in recent IIDX endings tradition, the song was returned as a playable song in Resort Anthem.
Upon hearing that this would be playable, I asked HES to prepare and make the movie for this song.
Even after many viewings of it, the movie still makes my heart excited.
This song is a fusion of melodic elements and psychedelic sounds from the good old days of games.
I hope that you enjoy the synths and the charge notes.
Video Production Information
When I first heard the ending song for SIRIUS, I thought that it was a great song, so when I was invited to make the movie for the song, I agreed.
I remember seeing the list of staff responsible for the movies for the 18th at one time or another, and they wanted someone with a lot of experience working for the SIRIUS ending song, so I volunteered to make it.
It ended up being the first movie finished for the 18th.
While GOLI and WAVE focused on the 3-D polygon models and design of the background interface, I decided to cut out parts of the original movie and emphasizing crisp editing.
If you look carefully enough, you might be able to see dog ears every 5th frame.
