Some dances I definitely want to do and why…

Morning Musume – Resonant Blue
– This was the first Morning Musume song that came out after I became a knowledgeable fan. That is, “Mikan” came out shortly after I found the group and their music, but I didn’t know who anyone was, and I didn’t know most of the songs. “Resonant Blue” was the first single I got to look forward to; I even burned a radio rip (including intro and outro from… I believe Gaki-san and Kamei) onto a CD! XD

Berryz Koubou – Munasawagi Scarlet
– I usually credit this song (and Matsuura Aya’s “Ne~e?”) with pulling me into the rest of Hello! Project. I really loved the original, but there was also a remix someone had made (I think it was called the APX KlubMix… and I believe it’s still on YouTube!) that I also really loved. ♥ Plus, I love the dance break! I re~~~ally want to dance to this! I’ve even been gathering items to make a somewhat accurate outfit~! =D

°C-ute – Sekaiichi HAPPY na Onna no Ko
– Though this one came out after I started dancing, I still haven’t learned it… (^_^”)> The music video is one of my favorites from °C-ute (anyone who knows me knows that I like bright colors). Besides that, I always found the song to be a lot of fun~. =)

S/mileage – Eighteen Emotion
– This is probably one of my favorite singles from S/mileage (or ANGERME for that matter)~! I’m not sure what it is about it that I like so much; I don’t even remember the music video… just the dance shot. (^_^”)> It’s high-energy with a catchy sound, so I’d really like to dance to it~.

Minimoni. – Lucky Cha Cha Cha!
– So nostalgic! This was one of my absolute favorites early on as a Hello! Project fan, and I still really love it. The video, the song, the dance… love it~! ♥ Fun fact: this was supposed to be part of the “Minimoni Madness! Dance Set” from last year, but I didn’t have time to finish it by the deadline. orz

Morning Musume ’16 – The Vision
– I’ve thought for a long time about what dance I want to do for my “graduation” from dancing (when the time comes), and this one has always been in the top three (along with a redo of “ALL FOR ONE & ONE FOR ALL!” and various other songs rotating in and out for the third option). The song is beautiful; it makes me cry, but it also makes me smile. The dance is unique (and the music video was absolutely gorgeous). I really want to dance to it when the time comes… though, who knows? Maybe something else will come out before I’m done, and I’ll choose that instead. What I mean is, don’t freak out whenever I do upload this dance. XD (… Not sure who I’m talking to… I think people mostly come here for my dance tutorial downloads anymore… orz)

Anyway, I just wanted to make it known that those six dances are ones that I’m particularly looking forward to doing~. ^_^ ♥

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! ^__^

I’ll be uploading this MINI Clip on April 15th. Please look forward to it~! ^__^

ピラッ! 乙女の願い (Dance Cover) Trivia

March 6, 2018

– This was filmed on February 8th.

– I tried to match the outfits from the performance with Nakky and Erina instead of the performance with all three of them because I thought the 80’s-ish look was kind of fun~. =D

– Brightly-colored fabric chains return~! XD It’s kind of hard to tell, but the one on my hip on the blue/pink side is a fluorescent green. Also, the one on my hip on the other side is made of the same fabric that was used for my “CAT’S EYE” dance cover.

– This is one of the few dances that I can remember not getting super-mad at if I messed up because I love the song so much~.

– I was going to do this as a solo dance, but I liked the face smack move after the dance break so much that I wanted to use it in the dance and include the other side’s reaction. XD

– I love lip-syncing/singing along with the “PARAPIRAPORAPORAPPO” etc. parts~. ^__^

– I pretty much just had the two performances available to use to learn this dance… but I think it turned out okay~.

– I was rather proud of the fact that I was able to “fall” at the same speed just before the first verse, and, for the second verse, my timing made it look like the purple/green side was pushing the other side forward a bit (just before the “WHOA AH OH” parts). XD

– As I mentioned in the video description, I made this for “Surimu Day” (3/6 from my Agent 36/Surimu series) because I’ve always really loved this song, and those are the kind of dances I want to upload on Surimu Day. XD

That’s all for this one~. Thanks very much 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~!

~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~! ♥

ゆき (Dance Cover) Trivia

December 12, 2017

– I filmed this on December 4th.

– This is the first Douyou Pops dance I’ve done since 2011, and it’s the last of the Douyou Pops that had a video/dance (that I know of, at least).

– I had multiple ideas for this video: split screen, triple split, solo in the snow (but we didn’t get snow until just a couple of days ago ahaha… orz), but I finally settled on a solo inside with cheesy effects similar to the ones I had in my other Douyou Pops videos. XD

– I had to look all over for mittens (because we usually use gloves), but my mom finally found some of my sister’s mittens from when she was little.

– I actually bought those earmuffs for last year’s Christmas dance (“Kira Kira Fuyu no Shiny G”), but decided against using them for that outfit. I think they work better with this one anyway~.

– Since the members in the video had puffy white dresses that made them look like snowballs/snowmen, I put a few black circles on my shirt to look a little more like a snowman. XD

– My original edit for the song took out the two parts without singing (when they just kind of shout randomly XD). I actually find those parts a bit grating, especially the first one (with the “WAAAAI! WAAAI! YUKI DA!” (-_-“)). However, I decided to use the whole song and just add my own little choreography to those parts of the song.

– On one take, I fell right at the end when I was trying to sit down. Yes… I saved it for a blooper video. XD

– I tried to make the “snow banks” on the border match up with the white walls that were showing. XD

– I thought the cheesy snowing effect would not only be cute in a simple sort of way but it was also kind of a call-back to the end of my “Aka Hana no Tonakai” dance cover (which also had a cheesy snowing effect)~. =D

That’s all for this one~. Thanks for watching and reading~! ^__^

Outfit for Upcoming ゆき Dance Cover

December 8, 2017

I’m dancing to another Douyou Pops song for the first time since… 2011! =O This is what I’ll be wearing in my dance cover for the song “Yuki” from the Christmas/Winter Douyou Pops album~.


Yuki Outfit

I’ll be dancing to the full song, but the song is less than two minutes long, so it’s pretty much a MINI Clip. XD I’ll be uploading this on December 12th. Please look forward to it~! ^__^
