時空を超え 宇宙を超え (Dance Cover) Trivia

– I loved this song from the first listen~! I found it a refreshing change of pace from their current style, which they’ve been using for the past few years (though I like that, too!)~. ^__^

– I actually learned the dance for the chorus right after the song came out, but other dances ended up taking precedence for one reason or another. (^__^”)

– I wanted to try to learn this dance in time to upload it around Mother’s Day this year (because my mom loves this song and dance, too), but I wasn’t able to finish it in time. orz

– I had originally wanted to buy sheer blue fabric to “make” a dress more similar to theirs, but a lack of money after my operation made it a bit hard to justify buying something that I would probably only use for one dance. (^__^”)

– I did, however, buy the stars on the background just for this dance, though they ended up not serving the purpose that I wanted them for. TT__TT

– The background I have up is two black, plastic table covers (one obviously used, the other, obviously not XD), which I bought on clearance around Halloween last year…? Maybe two years ago…? Anyway, I thought I’d be able to use them for a background some day. Me and my forethought. ^_~ XD

– My original plan for the background was to have the lights off so that you could see the stars glowing, and then I would fade into the brighter dance space before fading out to the starry sky again at the end. Unfortunately, the glow-in-the-dark stars just weren’t bright enough to see on camera. orz

– It seems my lack of money has made me really love my scarves again. XDD This dress is, once again, a scarf wrapped around me. I wish I could have had a darker blue, but this is fine, I guess~.

– I did at least eight full takes (and multiple shorter ones in which I messed up), but I ended up finding errors each time I filmed, so I had to redo it. My elbow was bent too much, my elbows weren’t bent enough, the timing was off, I hit the background, my foot was out too far, et cetera, et cetera… TT__TT There are still some minor things in the final version, but I hope it’s okay~.

– I had wanted to try an effect on this video which kept only the blue of the dress showing when everything else was in black-and-white, but the shadows prevented the effect from picking out all of the blue at any one time, so it had a strange, cut-out or painted sort of look to it. I actually thought it looked kind of neat, but I didn’t know if anyone else would really appreciate it. XD

– I’m wearing the necklace I got from my grandpa, which I used for the “Only you” 2.0 outfit I made on my second channel~.

– It’s been quite some time since you last saw my unstable shoulder in action. XDD

– Sorry about the not-so-nice look on my face most of the time; I was trying desperately not to smile fully because of the empty spaces in my teeth from the surgery. orz

– Speaking of my teeth, my orthodontist started pulling my teeth down last Thursday. OUCH. Though I think a big reason it was so terribly painful was because my regular appointment had gotten pushed back so far; I’m supposed to have an adjustment every month, but it ended up getting pushed back an entire month, so my teeth must have decided to make up for lost time. … They didn’t have readjust so much in one day… *grumble* XD

– While learning this dance, I realized that Daishi made a small mistake in the dance shot version. I had to check live versions, to be sure, but, for the part around 2:02, she doesn’t switch her arm positions on time. I was kind of wondering why she was the only one to not do so until I checked in on it. I think this is the third time I’ve caught an error in a dance shot version. I believe the other two were from Ai-chan in “Naichau Kamo” (though, if I remember correctly, her’s was pretty obivous (^__^”)) and Gaki-san in “Only you.” Hooray! They’re human, too! XD

– When I learn dances, I usually save the video to my computer using KeepVid, but something, I’m still not exactly sure what, messes up the timing and offsets the music and video, which makes getting the timing right a huge pain, especially on precision parts like this one has (when they’re all lined up, etc.). I’m still not 100% sure if it’s KeepVid doing something crazy or my Media Player, but whatever it is… *shakes fist*

– Between bad takes, while I was resting, I was rewatching season 2 of the Japanese drama Gokusen. I’m rewatching season 1 with my sister (whose birthday was on the 4th), but I realized that I haven’t rewatched season 2 since I first saw it about… seven years ago? The same goes for the third season; I don’t remember that one at all. XD The first is still my favorite, though~; no one beats Shin, Uchi, Noda, Minami, and KUUUMMAAAAA! XD ♥

– It’s June, so I’m playing Castlevania: Symphony of the Night again~! This is the sixth year in a row. Ah, traditions~. ♥ I’ll have to listen to “Tokaikko Junjou” when I get to the Colosseum, but this will be the first year I can’t eat Doritos while playing. TT__TT

Now that my trivia has nothing to do with the dance, I should probably stop. XDD Thank you for reading and watching~!
