April 15, 2018

I’ve been wanting to dance to °C-ute’s “Edo no Temari Uta II” for a long time, but I wanted to have a proper outfit for it. Here’s what I’ll be wearing in my dance cover for this song!

桜チラリ (MINI Clip) Trivia

March 19, 2018

– This was filmed on February 16th.

– This is one of those dances that’s so simple that it’s easy to make it look bad. O_O I actually had to be very mindful of how to move my arms/bend my elbows and how big my steps should be.

– The boots might not fit the outfit, but anything else I tried didn’t allow me to turn as easily. (^_^”)

– I tried to be careful about making the outfit look different from the one I had in “Ooki na Ai de Motenashite,” because that also used pink, white, and little pink and white flowers.

– My favorite part might be the fast, tiny steps that I take just before the first verse. ^__^

– I had debated as to whether or not I should do a full dance cover for this one… but there’s really not much to the dance, so I felt I couldn’t really justify it with so many others left to do. orz

I think that’s it for this one~. Thank you for watching and reading! =D

Here’s the outfit I’ll be wearing in my MINI Clip for °C-ute’s “Sakura Chirari.” A fitting song for the spring, I think!

~Update 65~

February 16, 2018

After going through all of my videos, I found that some dates needed to be added to my “Videos Uploaded on These Days” list (because, if I want to post something right away on a certain date, I have to wait until after 2 AM instead of midnight, and also because YouTube goes by when you made the video public, not when it finished uploading). orz That being said, I went from needing to upload something on 25 different days to needing to upload something on 30 different days. orz THAT being said, here’s what you can expect from me for the next month or so.

February 25th – Surimu Stories #8 [[Not yet filmed]]
February 27th – Reverse Dance Challenge
March 6th – Pira! Otome no Negai (Dance Cover)
March 7th – VERY BEAUTY (MINI Clip)
March 8th – Gaki Taishou (MINI Clip)
March 19th – Sakura Chirari (MINI Clip)

The Surimu Story should be quick to film, and VERY BEAUTY is learned and ready, I just want to try something for it that will take a little time to figure out. (^_^”) [[2/17/18 Edit: That thing that I wanted to try for VERY BEAUTY didn’t work out… orz It is done being filmed, though~.)

That’s all for this update~!

ディスコ クイーン (MINI Clip) Trivia

January 26, 2018

– I filmed this on January 15th.

– I wanted to have a silver outfit for this because, you know… disco ball. XD I was excited when I realized that the silver skirt I had originally gotten for my second attempt at Mikan wasn’t going to go to waste. XD

– You can hardly see them, but I’m wearing large, silver hoop earrings in this video. I think I’ve only worn earrings for two, maybe three other dances. o_O

– I thought my outfit ended up looking a bit like the actual outfits for Morning Musume ’15’s “Oh my wish!” (^_^”)

– I was able to wear my heeled boots because all I had to do was step back and forth. XD

– This was originally going to be a split-screened video, but I thought it would be a waste of time (filming and editing) and space (on my camera and hard drive) because they do almost exactly the same movements (save the one just before the chorus where they face different directions). (^_^”)

– The hair ties around my wrists were going to be used for different hairstyles for the two parts, but, after I decided to make it a solo video, I also decided to leave my hair down to fly around. XD

– I learned this dance fairly quickly because it’s so simple, but I had to practice the hand twirl into arm twist kind of thing (1:22 to 1:25-ish) more.

– My “top” is a silver scarf wrapped around and pinned to a grey tank top. ^__^

– The first few seconds of this song remind me of Final Fantasy VII… at least one of the songs from the game… can’t remember which. XD

That’s all for this one! Thanks for watching and reading~! =)

That’s all for this update~!

~2017 Wrap-Up Post~

December 31, 2017

For this breakdown, “Darenimo Naisho” does not count as a Hello! Project dance cover, but the “Morning Musume 60’s Girls Pop Medley” does.

– I did a total of thirty-six dances in 2017.
One of these dances was an original choreography.
Eleven of these dances were MINI Clips.
Three of these dances were non-Hello! Project dances.
One of these dances was part of my “Agent 36” series.
– Of the thirty-three H!P dances, eleven were either album or coupling tracks.
Two dances were medleys, one of which was my longest video ever.
Three dances were ones that had already been done previously.
Seven dances were split-screened or had a split-screened section.
– For each H!P group, I had the following number of dances – Morning Musume (any year) = 10 (including both medleys); Berryz Koubou = 2; C-ute = 5; S/mileage/ANGERME = 1; Juice=Juice = 1; Country Girls = 1; Buono! = 3; Kobushi Factory = 1; Tsubaki Factory = 1; misc. H!P (Minimoni., 3nin Matsuri, CAT’S EYE 7, Matsuura Aya, High-King, Douyou Pops) = 8

Just like last year, I really enjoyed the MINI Clips~. ^__^ Some of my favorite outfits include “Mukidashi de Mukiatte,” “Ran Ra Run ~Anata ni Muchuu~,” “Minimoni。 Jankenpyon!” (just for its accuracy), “Iroppoi Jirettai,” “I NEED YOU,” “Sexy Cat no Enzetsu,” and “Kioku no Meiro.”

Favorite dances? Hmm… I’m really proud of putting that massive medley together~. =) My original choreography for this year wasn’t bad, but I can’t help but wonder if I’ll never like any of my choreographies more than the one I did for “RENAI WARS” back in 2015. XD orz

It was SO satisfying to finally dance to “Iroppoi Jirettai,” “Happy Summer Wedding,” and “Ne~e?” I’ve wanted to do them forever (especially the last two). Next year, I hope to get a few more long awaited dance covers off my list~. ^_~

As far as non-dance videos… to be honest, I’m not a huge fan of vlogging. (^_^”) The thing I like most about my vlogs is actually the blooper videos that they end up giving me. XD I’ll probably keep doing Surimu Stories, but I won’t be vlogging as much as I have over the past couple of years. I have a couple hundred dances to get done after all~.

It almost seems silly to ask, but how about all of you? Which of my 2017 dances were your favorites? Favorite outfits? How about your favorite of my non-dance videos in 2017?

2017… I got to do fun things like go to wrestling shows for the first time, but various incidents throughout the year made this a very tough year for me. Let’s see if 2018 is a little brighter~. ^__^ Happy New Year~! ♥

Surimuchan [Now] #25 – November 2017

November 30, 2017

Entertainment
– I saw Thor: Ragnarok and Justice League in theaters. I really liked Thor (I’ve really liked all of the Thor movies) and Justice League wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be (not a glowing endorsement, I know XD).
– Even though I didn’t really care about it much when the songs first came out, Morning Musume ’17’s “Jama Shinaide Here We Go!” has been stuck in my head a lot over the past month. I think it has something to do with how much I like the part I did for that song in my giant Momusu dance medley. XD

Purchases
– I got tons of H!P CDs (and the giant Blu-ray box sets of °C-ute and Buono!‘s final concerts)! I’m trying to get hard copies of all of the H!P album releases as well as significant singles (as well as singles from miscellaneous groups). =)
– I didn’t get nearly as much from the WWE Shop for this year’s Black Friday/Cyber Monday sales, though I did get signed photos of some wrestlers (including AJ Styles, my favorite!). Besides that, I got a Shield T-shirt (way before Black Friday), and I pre-ordered a framed plaque commemorating the Finn Bálor/AJ Styles match at TLC; it has a piece of the ring canvas! =D
– For non-H!P, non-WWE stuff, I bought Wonder Woman, Spider-Man Homecoming, and Kong: Skull Island on Blu-ray (on super-sale). I also bought a little LEGO Beast and a Belle/Gaston/Mrs. Potts Tsum Tsum Stackables set to add to my Beauty and the Beast collection~. ♥

Happenings
– Work, and lots of it. O__O I haven’t had a ton of time to work on dances (I didn’t even have time to do that second redo dance I had been planning orz). It will be nice when work slows down a bit after the holidays.

Plans
– I have another Vlog Blooper video ready, and an auto-caption video is done being filmed but not quite done being edited. I plan on doing my usual Christmas dance video on December 22nd, like always~. I’d like to do more, but I don’t know what kind of time I’ll have, so I’ll probably end up uploading mostly miscellaneous videos for December. (^__^”)

Recommendation
The songs from ANGERME’s upcoming single, especially “Kimi Dake ja nai sa…friends“~! The first time I heard it, I immediately loved it and almost started tearing up during the chorus (and then the instrumental break, and then the layered vocals at the end…). TT_TT ♥♥♥

Thanks for reading~!
