ヒロインになろうか! (Dance Cover) Trivia

– I actually had this dance almost completely learned (I’d say about 92% done) not too long after it first came out back in 2011. I never got around to filming it because I had so many requests to take care of at that time (“Clover Club,” “DISCOTHEQUE,” “Beginner,” “Bad Apple!!,” “Matryoshka,” and others along with various tutorials). I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I still remembered most of it when I started relearning it~. ^__^

– I really liked my outfit for this one. =D This outfit included the top from “Hadaka no Hadaka no Hadaka no KISS” (I love those sleeeeeves!!! XD), the vest from “Happy Synthesizer” and a handful of other dances, and the black skirt from about a billion of my other dances cover (it’s one of my favorites, okay?! XD). (You can see pictures of this outfit on the Surimuchan Facebook page~.)

– All that being said, my outfit looks closer to Risako’s (or Momo’s or Maasa’s) even though I was following Captain’s part.

– I was rather happy with how the coloring effects turned out in this~. The beginning starts at 25% saturation and then jumps to 125% saturation. When the pitch changes after the dance break, the saturation is upped to 175% (which is why I look rather Oompa Loompa-ish XD). It then drops back to 25% saturation for the last few seconds. I was originally going to do the spotlight effect at the beginning and end, but I decided to make it more like “Heart Beats” with the slight color changes.

– The biggest challenge for me was probably staying in one spot during the parts where I move my heels in and out. I would always end up sliding backwards. XDD

– I had to keep my hair braided for two days to achieve that wavy/crimped look. I actually prefer how a braid looks with this outfit, but I kind of wanted my hair down for this dance (to get some nice movement).

– I had a fairly good take before this one, but my hair kept getting in my face and making me look like Cousin Itt and/or Sadako, plus I had a couple of moves that I wanted to sharpen, so I pinned my hair back, and I refilmed it. XD

– Though this one was also a fairly good take, there were two things in particular that I was upset about. The first is the fact that I accidentally repeated Captain’s movements for the end of the first verse during the second verse, which wasn’t correct because, during the second verse, Miyabi had the line that corresponded with those moves. orz Secondly (and this one really annoyed me), I had always done Captain’s movements for her solo line just after the dance break perfectly. (I overlayed the practice videos, and I matched up to her movements exactly.) But, on this take, I panicked for a moment trying to remember my moves, and I ended up doing it backwards. Noooo…. orz

– Hooray! I can lipsync again~! =D

– This was the first dance voted for in my Berryz Koubou Dance Cover polls last fall. The other two were “Shining Power” and “Rival.” Don’t worry… I’ll get to them!

I think that’s all for this one… Thank you for reading and watching! And ~please~ don’t hesitate to participate in the Berryz Koubou Tribute Project! Even if it’s just a short blog post about your favorite Berryz music video or even if it’s one quick sketch of Momochi’s “Yurushite nyan~,” it’s very much welcome! Remember to share your creations this Saturday on Twitter using #berryz! Thank you~!
