ふんわり恋人一年生 (Dance Cover) Trivia

February 16, 2018

– This was filmed on January 19th.

– I rather liked these outfits even though they were somewhat plain (compared to other outfits I’ve worn for dances). ^_^

– The steps in the beginning of the dance were one of the things that made me really want to dance to this. XD

– This song was only performed a few times (and always a shorter version), so it took me forever to figure out what they were doing for some parts (like during the raps).

– I was actually doing the move around 1:37 (stepping back while swinging arms out) wrong for a while; I would jump back on one foot and swing my arms in instead. (^_^”)

– The “part two” line at the beginning of the second verse was one of the reasons I wanted to do the full dance. XD I also kind of liked the move I added at 2:10-2:11~. =D

– My hat says “WEIRD.” XD

– I was originally going to wear my Hardy Boyz tank top for the rap side, but I decided to go with a plain white tank top instead.

– The sleeves I’m wearing have kiwis on them. =)

– I used my newer video editing software to split screen this, which has a nice soft split line so that it’s not so obvious… but it seems to slow the video down a little at random points, so I don’t know. O_O My mom said it’s not noticeable, but I always notice eeeeeverything. XD orz

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

~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~! ♥

Morning Musume 60’s Girls Pop Medley [2017 Vers.] (Dance Cover) Trivia

December 22, 2017

– I filmed this December 15th. (Can I just say, I can’t believe it’s been eight years since I first did this dance. O__O)

– At first, I tried to match the original outfit, but I wanted to use a colored skirt instead of a black one, and I had donated that sweater, and the bow did not want to stay on my head. XD

– I tried dancing in the same heels as the first one again, but, boy, do they kill my feet. orz Sooo much easier dancing in the boots~.

– I heard two of the songs in this medley playing at work on two different days and both times I got one move in before I realized that I had started dancing at work. XD Thankfully, no one saw me. XD

– My mom and I refer to this medley as “The Mo-premes” because we always thought that was kind of funny. XD =)

– I couldn’t find a lot of the decorations that I’ve been putting on that little tree in the past, but I had some extra bulbs and a couple of ornaments, so I was still able to decorate it~.

– It drove me insane that my left sleeve would not stay up. orz

– I actually have a blooper that’s just like the blooper I had for my original dance cover for this song: when I’m spinning my arms, the scarf gets caught. XD (^_^”)

– I wanted to use the same sign as the original, but I couldn’t find it (I have all of the signs I’ve made for videos saved, but a couple of them have gone missing TT_TT), so I tried to make one that looked like the original.

I think that’s all for this one… I hope everyone enjoyed it! Thank you for watching and reading~. Merry (early) Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Outfit for Upcoming Morning Musume 60’s Girls Pop Medley [2017 Vers.] Dance Cover

December 22, 2017

What an odd dance cover to redo! … What an odd dance cover to do in the first place! XD For those who don’t remember, this was my first Christmas dance cover (and my fourth YouTube video). It featured the members of Morning Musume (6th gen. was new at that time) singing American pop songs from the 60s (with a little something extra~). Here’s the new outfit…

Surimuchan [Now] #25 – November 2017

November 30, 2017

– 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

– 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~. ♥

– 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.

– 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. (^__^”)

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~!
