Surimu Chance! Contest #3 Information and Rules

October 21, 2017

It’s time for the third Surimu Chance! Contest (aka Surimuchan’s H!P Appreciation Contests)! This will be an Assortment Contest (including Name That H!P Song, H!P Trivia, and H!P Mystery Pictures). (Credit for the Mystery Pictures idea goes to Celestia of Bikkuri Project, which was a Hello! Project blog I read a lot when I first found H!P; she hasn’t updated for a while, but I really liked this idea).

Contest Information and Rules

The contest begins at 12:00 AM on Monday, October 23rd.

– The contest post will include the following:
1) Ten short audio clips of H!P songs to name (artist and song; any H!P artist past or present is an option)
2) Ten H!P Trivia questions to answer
3) Ten H!P Mystery Pictures; these are small pieces taken from H!P music videos (artists this time include: Smileage/ANGERME, Juice=Juice, Country Girls, Kobushi Factory, and Tsubaki Factory); name the music video each picture was taken from

That means there are a total of thirty “questions.” The person who gets the most right is the winner~!

– Submit your answers in a numbered list in a comment on the contest post. Answers 1 through 10 are for Name That H!P Song; answers 11 through 20 are for H!P Trivia; and answers 21 through 30 are for H!P Mystery Pictures.

Comments will only show up if I approve them, so, as long as I don’t approve them, no one will see your answers except for me~.

Answers are due by 11:59 PM Central Standard Time (US) on Friday, October 27th. The person with the most correct answers will win the Prize Box! If there is a tie, I will use a random number generator to determine the Prize Box winner.

– This contest is open to everyone worldwide~!

Please Note: Winners will need to provide a mailing address to receive the Prize Box; after all, I need to be able to ship it to you! [[Addresses will ONLY be shared in a private message/e-mail; they will NOT be made public.]]

Please Note: The winners for the previous contests are not be eligible to win. I’d like others to have a chance to get prizes, too!

The Prize Box will contain:
– 1 regular edition H!P single CD of the winner’s choice
– Set of eight Ivybourn Workshop buttons of the winner’s choice
– Various bonus prizes (The winner will be sent pictures of the bonus prizes to choose from; there are some new ones since the last contest!)

Remember, it’s the person who gets the most right, NOT the first person to send in their answers who wins~. =)

Good luck to those participating~!

急がば回れ (Dance Cover) Trivia

January 19, 2017

– I was originally going to do this dance for New Year’s Day, because I wasn’t sure if I’d get “THE FUTURE” done in time.

– This is my first Kobushi Factory dance cover~.

– As much as I love this song, there’s not much to this dance, so I wanted to have some other “something” for it, which is why I filmed outside~. It was nicer than it’s been in a while, so I figured it would work out.

– I was concentrating too hard on remembering the moves, which always makes me mess up more, so I had to do quite a few takes. orz

– I started out not wearing gloves, but after so many takes, my fingers started to get cold even though the rest of me was fine, so I put on some gloves. (^_^”) I chose blue because I didn’t want white (they would blend in with the snow), red (they would blend in with my sweatshirt), or black (they would blend in with my pants).

– My hat says “BAYMAX” and has a picture of him on it~. ♥

– The camera was going to be facing the end of the road (down the driveway, like it was for “Kia Ora Gracias Arigato” or “Heart Beats”), but I didn’t want all of the cars that were passing by in my video. (^_^”)

– I have a blooper in which, just as I’m starting the dance, I noticed the UPS truck turning into our driveway, so I have to move my camera and the stool that my iPod is on. XD

– One take made me so mad; the camera shut off with SIX SECONDS of the song left. Grrrr….

– The tiny steps I took at the end of the dance look absolutely ridiculous, because I didn’t want to risk going out of frame. XD It might have been better if I had just stayed in one spot… but I didn’t want to do another take. orz

– The take that I used was done with an almost dead battery. The low battery symbol showed up just before I pressed record, and the camera shut off immediately after I finished watching the playback.

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