I know (MINI Clip) Trivia

April 15, 2018

– This was filmed on April 5th.

– The hardest part of the dance was mostly just trying to figure out exactly what they were doing (because most performances focused on Ayaya, who didn’t do as much dancing).

– Figuring out the outfit was almost more difficult than the dance. XD I wanted to use that blue hair extension, so I tried to base the outfit around that.

– My favorite part of the dance is during the line “ちっちゃく!OH YEAH!”. =D

That’s all for this one! Not much to it… Thank you for watching and reading! ^__^

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

ガキ大将 (MINI Clip) Trivia

March 8, 2018

– This was filmed on February 8th.

– When I decided to start making MINI Clips, this was one of the first dances on my To Do list. Even before that, I had been planning on doing this dance for years because I’ve always loved the song~.

– This had only been performed, what, twice? And the first performance was the only one with the full, more involved dance routine, so I didn’t have much to work with when learning this dance. orz Thankfully, I was able to find a solo shot version of Miyabi for that performance, and that helped with a few moves that couldn’t be seen in the regular performance~.

– I used a slightly schoolgirl-ish look for the outfit and included a wood panel border as a (rather vague, I suppose) reference to their mention of a blackboard in the song.

– That skirt was only worn in one other dance cover (I think): Koi no Vacance (from 2010!).

– The part that took me the longest to do properly was from 0:45 to 0:49; it has a very specific pattern that needs to be done in time with the music, so it took me a few tries to get it right. (^_^”)

– I’m not sure if I’ve worn that vest in anything else besides “Only you”… but I could be wrong.

That’s all for this one~! Thank you for watching and reading~! ^__^

March 7, 2018

– This was filmed on February 17th.

– I always liked this song, but I always hated the dance shot version because they cut to closeups so often. (I’m also not a huuuge fan of the “stand here and pose, now walk over here and pose” parts of dances… and this had a few…) orz

– Because the dance shot had so many closeups, I had to watch various live performances to see all of the dance. Even then, I had to find older performances of the song because they didn’t seem to dance much for later ones.

– I started out wearing the red skirt that I had in my “Renai WARS” video, but decided that outfit looked a little too much like the iconic “Morning Coffee” one, so I changed skirts. My next option was the purple one from “Oujisama to Yuki no Yoru,” which I really liked, but it seemed rather short, so I switched to the floral one (briefly seen in my “Wakatteiru no ni Gomen ne” dance cover). I liked the final outfit~.

– I always loved the settings in the original music video, and I wanted to at least reference that look with the columns and bushes (drawn super-quickly in Paint… XD). I also tried to fade the video a bit for that slightly old-timey look~.

– This dance took me just a couple of days to learn (and it was only that long because I had to hunt for clips to see certain parts). (^_^”)

– As I said in the video description, today is the eleven-year anniversary of this song’s release~! =D

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

~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~! =)
