everyone is saying how ran and yukina should have switched parts in kakumei dualism, but listen. in terms of the characters, ran probably picked the higher part because she knows yukina's range is Ridiculous and wanted to prove a point
Returns joins the League Of Songs That Reliably Make Me Cry among such classics as Happiness Happy Magical, Bokutachi wa Hitotsu no Hikari, and Kimi no Mizu ga Warau Kara. congratulations, Returns, not many songs can do that!
the Tae version was already emotional enough but the added line at the end of the Kasumi version is just ... too much ... how dare they ...
Event Song: Galactic! Mysterious Waltz | Galactic! 神秘的円舞 | Galactic! Shinpi-teki Enbu (original by Hello Happy World, featuring major Hina vocal parts)
Challenge Songs: Galactic! Mysterious Waltz, Goka! Gokai?! Phantom Thief!, Zettai Sengen Recital, GO! GO! Maniac, Romeo and Cinderella
TL:DR; Kokoro's family is throwing a masquerade ball and she gets to invite four people. Since everyone in Harohapi is busy, she invites Hina, who invites Lisa, and then they all search to invite Tomoe, and then Lisa convinces Arisa to join them. They choose fancy costumes and Kokoro pays a hog-ton of money for them. They practice dancing at the Tsurumaki Mansion but Kokoro slips on a soapy slippery staircase because she's having too much fun dancing with Hina, and she breaks her ankle. Hina is sad. Kokohina fluff. Kokoro recovers thanks to rest and high-tech doctor procedures. Everyone has fun at the ball. Hina sleeps over at Kokoro's house.
That was a very watered down version of the story; if you'd like to read a much more detailed version (which I HIGHLY recommend you do), please check out this Google Doc containing the WHOLE STORY. please look at it im cryibg :(((
“An Okey-Dokey Day!” Kokoro Tsurumaki 4★
Gacha Phrase: “Let’s have the most fun, no matter what! Se, no~!”
Untrained: Kokoro is outside of the mansion with everyone else, smiling and putting her hand in as if to do a Popipa-pipopa-popipapopipopa cheer with everyone. She also is grabbing Hina’s hand, as if she had ran outside and dragged Hina with her. Everyone’s wearing their costume, but only Kokoro and Lisa have their masks on right then and there.
Trained: Kokoro and Hina are holding hands and laughing, dancing together. Hina is facing Kokoro, so you only see half her face, but Kokoro’s face and hair and body are entirely visible. The background is galaxy-themed with aspects of roses and fanciness. Kokoro is wearing a modified version of her dress, where some of the ruffles have been extended and dotted with glittering “stars”. The torso is starry-galaxy-colored, and she has white silk gloves and she has diamond bracelets. She wears half-mask that’s galaxy-colored and her hair is done in a Chisato-esque hair style, and her fringe is braided. Her costume is also fancier in other ways, but I don’t know how to explain things. She has a silky ruffly thing on the side of her skirt-section of the dress. Kokoro’s mask is the other half to Hina’s.
”Boppin’ Starry Friendship” Hina Hikawa 4★
Gacha Phrase: “Kokoro-chan, I’m always here for you!”
Untrained: She’s helping Kokoro up on the staircase, and Kokoro is on her butt, a bit scraped up from the fall. They’re in their costumes still, and Hina is taking Kokoro’s hand. Hina’s face is filled with pure concern and she has an ice pack in her other hand. Kokoro’s face is smiling, but it’s weak and slightly strained.
Trained: BG Kokoro down a stair banister, wearing her trained costume, sitting near the bottom. Hina is sitting on the bottom staircase, holding a golden rose and pastel blue rose in one hand and holding Kokoro’s hand with the other. She’s winking + grinning, her guitar pick between her lips the way all Bandori guitarists and bassists do. Her guitar is laid out next to her on the staircase. Hina’s rose-hand is extended out in a peace sign that’s tilted to the side. Kokoro is enjoying herself in a pure way. Hina’s costume consists of a blue-ish galaxy half-mask and a much flowier version of her dress, the torso colored galaxy and the lower part speckled with glitter and stars. Fancier in other ways but I don’t know how to explain™. Background is galaxy-themes but more on the fancy ballroom side of the spectrum. Hina wears white silk fingerless gloves. Her mask is the other half of Kokoro’s.
”How I Dance~” Lisa Imai 3★
Gacha Phrase: “Step left, step right, dip down, and twiiiirllll~!”
Untrained: Lisa is doing a :3c face while tango-ing with Arisa, whose back is turned towards us, but we can see the tsundere’s flustered face. Lisa is in her costume but Arisa is in her normal clothes. You can see Tomoe dancing in the background with the Suits, and Kokoro and Hina are doing the Orange Justice.
Trained: Lisa is in her mermaid-esque dress, which is fluttering in the background like a tail. Her costume isn’t much modified except for the tail is blue-er and the neckline of her torso is in a V-shape, showing her cleavage, but the border of the neckline is a violet galaxy-color. The lighting is very glowy and mysterious, illuminating her pink galaxy mask that she holds out towards us. Her pick is between her top and bottom teeth, and she’s doing a ;3 face. She wears black lace fingerless gloves, and her hair is down and curled. She has a mini braid on the side of her fringe. Her bass is held with both her hands.
”Delivery For Tsurumaki-san” Arisa Ichigaya 3★
Untrained: She looks like she’s fussing over Kokoro, all while handing her a dancing fancy-costume Michelle felt plush-charm thing. Kokoro is beaming. Arisa wears her school uniform, and Kokoro is wearing her casual.
Trained: Arisa is rocking a purple keytar while sitting on a fancy navy blue futon in a fancy ballroom. Her hair is curly and done down normally, her bangs pinned to the side with a star clip. Her pose is similar to Lisa’s VDay 4★, but Arisa is facing forward and doing a [n~o] expression. Her keytar is lying on her, the handle grasped by her hand. Her costume is modified in which the petal-skirt is now galaxy-colored but the torso is much more rufflier with chiffon. Her mask is on the top of her head, and it’s a lavender-starry-theme.
”Fun To Attend” Tomoe Udagawa 2★
Tomoe is holding her drumsticks in one hand, her hand on her hips as she stands leaning on a staircase banister. In the other hand, she holds her red starry full mask. Her costume is a smooth, silky phoenix-themed dress, and she has a nebula-themed veil covering the skirt-section of her dress. A starry jewel necklace is around her neck.
welp i put way too much thought into this but……….. kokohina amirite
amita was so good in geki teikoku kagekidan i almost cried,,, her voice would get deep at random parts and idk i really liked it??
anyways it makes me think that pasupare should do more songs thats traditional sounding like senbonzakura (i know its been done im just giving an example) since I think aya/amita's voice would be great at it
Yoooooooo I'm so happy I finally did it!! This is my second lv. 27 FC (after Redo) and was a super fun beatmap to play. It's also probably the closest I'll ever come to getting an EX goals title hahhah ....
remember when I said I really wanted, no, needed to sing PASSIONATE ANTHEM?
Yukina makes it sound so easy ...
but here's a first WIP that might actually turn into the full thing at one point, though there's some things I definitely need to retake and the mix is also pretty damn makeshift ... and no I didn't give up before the second chorus I was simply. uhm. taking a break. a long break. yes, a break
also sorry for the quality, exporting to mp3 positively murdered it
