エエジャナイカ ニンジャナイカ (Dance Cover) Trivia

June 15, 2018

– This was filmed on May 7th.

– This is my 200th H!P dance cover~! ❤ (When counting my H!P dance covers, I did not include redone versions, tributes/medleys, collaborations of dances that I also uploaded a solo version of, other UP FRONT artists (UP UP GIRLS, Bitter & Sweet), or my dance cover of “Otakebi Boy WAO!” (due to its unavailability).

– I was worried that my outfit would look too much like the ones I had for my dance cover of “SAMURAI GIRLS,” so I tried to add a few things that those outfits didn’t have (namely the one sleeve and the headband).

– The sleeve and headband were made from the same cut of material that I used to make my “Iroppoi Jirettai” skirt’s ruffles.

– The arm accessories are actually 1) mesh, though you can’t tell in the video and 2) socks that I cut up to turn into arm accessories. XD Yes, mesh socks. I never wore them as socks; I bought them (on clearance) specifically to use as a dance accessory some day (I bought them at least three years ago). XD

– I loved this song right away~. It also reminded me very much of something Kanjani8 would sing (the musical style at least). =)

– This dance marks the last time I wore what I referred to as my “wakey wakey” socks (they were olive green with eggs and bacon on them XDD); after I finished filming the dance, I noticed a hole in one of them. orz … XD

That might actually be it for this one~. Thanks for watching and reading~! ^__^

~Update 66~

April 27, 2018

Here’s a quick update on what I’ve been working on (or what I will be working on).

May 13th – Namida no Iro [Completed]
May 21st – Surimuchan’s Dance Bloopers 4 [Completed]
May 23rd – Sou ja nai [Learned, not filmed]
June 15th – Ee ja nai ka Ninja nai ka [Started learning]

There may be a MINI Clip or a Surimu Story thrown in there somewhere (since those are some pretty big gaps between uploads), but I don’t currently have any ready. (^_^”) As always, videos listed in these posts that are not completed could be pushed back or dropped completely.

That’s all~. ^_^

~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~! ♥

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~!

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
