READY!! (Dance Cover) Trivia

January 1, 2018

– I filmed this on Christmas Eve, so this was technically my last dance of 2017 even though it wasn’t uploaded then.

– This is my seventh iDOLM@STER dance cover, and it’s the sixth time I’ve used one for a New Year’s Day video.

– The long vest thing I’m wearing was originally a men’s dress shirt. I bought it on clearance because it had a grid pattern and I wanted to decorate it with a video game sprite. XD As you can see, I used the Fighter sprite from the first Final Fantasy~. =) My whole outfit was based around matching up with this vest.

– The background and menu screens for the intro and outro were also inspired by FFI (the original; not any of the ones with the fancy graphical upgrades).

– My socks say “READY SET GO” on them. … I thought it was fitting. XD

– I actually used my new video editor to put this together, but there was a bit of a lag in a couple parts of the video, so I went back to my old editor for this video. (^_^”)

– The sound effects for the menu (the pop and the whistle) were originally from my third blooper video back in 2011 (before blooper videos were a semi-regular thing and before they were split into dance and vlog bloopers).

I suppose that’s about it. Thanks for watching and reading~! Happy New Year~! ^__^

~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~! ♥

ラブチーノ (Dance Cover) Trivia

October 23, 2017

– This was filmed on October 13th (Friday the 13th~!).

– I had absolutely no idea what to wear for this dance. The only thing I knew I had to wear was sleeves, because, after a particularly bad bout of anxiety, my left arm was scratched to oblivion (you can see part of it above the sleeve). TT_TT

– The sleeves I eventually decided on have ice cream scoops on one side and a Ferris wheel on the other side. … Like most of my sleeves/arm accessories, they used to be socks. XD

– I was originally going to wear the sweatshirt I have tied around my waist, but I thought white looked better with the pastel colors of the sleeves, shorts, and hair clips. I still wanted to use the sweatshirt because of the cute doughnut picture, though~.

– One of the necklaces I’m wearing is a green hobbit hole door, which was a gift from a friend (either last year or the year before).

– I added the “Thank you~!” end screen to block out most of the shot just a couple days ago because I thought my face looked particularly creepy in the lighting/angle at the end there. orz

– I tried to be a little more animated with some of my facial expressions in this. (^_^”)

– This marks the fifth year in a row that I’ve danced to a Fine and Tsurutei choreography for my birthday dance~.

I think that’s all for this one… I can’t quite remember. (I’m rather tired because I just came back from WWE TLC about an hour and a half ago; what a show!) Thanks for watching and reading~! ^__^

夜もすがら君想ふ (Dance Cover) Trivia

October 15, 2017

– I filmed this on September 22nd.

– This was the first dance that I filmed after getting my braces off (though it wasn’t the first one I uploaded; that would be “Morning Misoshiru”).

– As seems to be the case with a lot of Nico Nico dances, this one didn’t take me too long to learn. o_O

– I had no idea what to wear for this, so I found a random top that I had never worn and some socks that had one color that matched the top, and then I just built the rest of the outfit around that.

– My lips would dry out and stick to my retainers like crazy when I tried to lipsync, which is partially why I didn’t bother lipsyncing the second verse. XD (^__^”)

– My favorite move is probably the heel tapping after turning around (around 1:05). I think my mom liked the sort of running in place move near the beginning of the chorus. =D

– I had my nails painted for this dance, too. I believe they were dark green, but they might have been dark blue.

– I added the little snap-point before the clapping near the end of the dance~. I also changed the end move slightly because I wanted it to go with the music a little more.

I think that’s it for this one~. Thanks for watching and reading~.

Happy Birthday, Mom~!! ♥

Surimuchan [Now] #23 – September 2017

September 30, 2017

– I started watching Heartland on Netflix. It’s pretty good! I will also admit to watching LEGO Elves on Netflix. … It’s not quite as good. XD It kind of reminds me of Totally Spies (which I liked to watch way back in the day).
– I got ten books from Thrift Books and have read four (and a half) of them. I’m really getting back into reading after not reading much for quite a while.
– I’ve had snippets of the most random songs stuck in my head (especially at work) including the following: Minimoni’s “Chiccha na Chiccha na Onna no Ko,” KAT-TUN’s “WILDS OF MY HEART,” “Let Me Be Your Wings” (from Thumbelina), Morning Musume’s “Aishuu Romantic” (Sayu and Fuku-chan) (only the “TEKE TEKKE TEKE TE” line), “Step in Time” (from Mary Poppins), and part of one line from Morning Musume’s “Motto Aishite Hoshii no” (just “dakiyosete choudai” … that’s it XD), Reel Big Fish’s “Sell Out,” and Cherry Poppin’ Daddies’ “Stay, Don’t Just Stay,” and “Irish Whiskey.” Quite a variety, huh?
– I’ve been playing Rhythm Heaven on my 3DS and doing much better than I did before~! =D

– More H!P CDs (and a couple of NEWS CDs that I was missing), a bunch of nail polish (not sure why I’ve gotten back into painting my nails, but I have) and… mostly just food, I think, since I can finally eat more stuff! XD Ooh, I also got some snail cream from Amazon because I wanted to try it.

I got my braces off~~~~!! =D I bought trail mix right away; it’s the thing I’ve been missing the most. ♥

I have (what will hopefully be my last) surgery on the 3rd of October to get the post for my implant put in, so I took all of next week off. I have quite a few plans for videos, but I’m not sure how many I can get done. O_O I already have the dance for my Mom’s birthday done (not edited), and the MINI Tutorial for “Just Try!” done (almost done being edited). I wanted to get a couple of Surimu Stories filmed on my vacation, and maybe a dance, and the “Oh my wish!” MINI Tutorial… but I don’t know. (^_^”) Also, I know I still need to do the final contest; life’s just been a bit hectic lately. orz I’ll do it before the end of the year!

Marx Brothers movies~! My favorite is “A Night at the Opera,” but most of their movies are really funny. =D

Thanks for reading~!
