Lyrics

Japanese

塔の上から見下ろす世界
制する度胸はあんのかい?
空前絶後 その占いは
始まりを照らす太陽か?

正義振りかざす天よりの使者
罪と罰を受け止めるぞ愚者
迫り来る夜叉 選択は取捨
最期は己だぜ?

そう世界は こんな未来を待ってたんだろう
全てを今 死神に捧げよう

小さな紙切れは 僕に何を望んでたの?

月を追い越して 君は消えてゆく
メビウスが僕を嘲笑う

神に刻まれた 闇の鎮魂歌
愚かな僕の末路

...君には未来が見えてたの?

星に吊るされた 僕の心には
永遠だけが憑き纏う

神に刻まれた 闇の鎮魂歌
愚かな僕の末路

Romaji

Tou no ue kara miorosu sekai
Seisuru dokyou wa an no kai?
Kuuzenzetsugo sono uranai wa
Hajimari wo terasu taiyou ka?

Seigi furikazasu ten yori no shisha
Tsumi to batsu wo uketomeruzo gusha
Semari kuru yasha sentaku wa shusha
Saigo wa onore da ze?

Sou sekai wa konna mirai wo mattetandarou 
Subete wo ima shinigami ni sasageyou

Chiisana kamikire wa boku ni nani wo nozondeta no? 
 
Tsuki wo oikoshite kimi wa kieteyuku 
Mebiusu ga boku wo warau 

Kami ni kizamareta yami no rekuiemu 
Oroka na boku no matsuro

...Kimi wa mirai ga mieteta no? 

Hoshi ni tsurusareta boku no kokoro ni wa 
Eien dake ga tsukimatou

Kami ni kizamareta yami no rekuiemu
Oroka na boku no matsuro

English

Looking down on The World from atop a Tower
Do you have the courage to control it?
Is this unprecedented fortune telling 
The Sun that illuminates the beginning?

A messenger from heaven who wields Justice
The Fool who accepts sin and punishment
A yaksha approaches as you weigh your options
Are you the final one?

Right, wasn't The World waiting for such a future?
Now, offer everything up to Death

What was it that that little piece of paper wished for me?

Overtaking The Moon, you disappear
Möbius makes a mockery of me

A requiem of darkness engraved upon God
This is the final fate of The Foolish me

...Were you able to see the future?

Hung upon The Star
Eternity is the only thing that haunts my heart

A requiem of darkness engraved upon God
This is the final fate of The Foolish me

Music Comments

​Konya

Tarots are good!

There are quite a variety of designs, and as you watch it, the hands will rise and you will be at home about 5 sets.

Among them, a naughty nuisance will appear or not.

​Chihhi

The rabbit and the cat going around is cute! I feel like I'm generating electricity that I'll be doing my be~st!

Loof looked simple, with a very dark, fancy design, but éclale's colorfulness was ecological to remember very impressively.

It's very cool as an illustration, but in animations, I've felt a funny feeling that it'll be relaxed after play, as it has a mischievous atmosphere that was in the posted text, with a brief taste and Pop'n characteristic feelings of a bad news.

​ Oya

I have a good voice. If Loof is talking, I'm probably a paranoid where I'll surely chat like this in a voice.

​TAMA

Always my gentle seniors are cool and cool... Akinari and PON.

As long as PON was looking forward to making Akinari's songs when he suddenly heard his songs, "What? It is Akinari to compose!"

It is a good memory to misunderstood about 10 seconds.

Akinari has songs with a completely different direction from Mr. Murai, Yuji and PON, I mean, the composer wants to have their own interpretations, so I think it's a vocalist who has a voice to do this.

The song title is also nice. Because number 23 is a number to get a better career.

It was quite difficult to select characters on the premise of combining PON with Akinari.

At the end, he decided that Loof was able to send a good character that was not likely to ever be in one character also expressed in the two sides of the vocalist!

Mr. Konbe, congratulations on the adoption!

Song Production Information[1]

​PON

The collaboration with Akinari-kun has been implemented.
Furthermore, so there would be a good balance with the open recruitment from pixiv,
and to make the most of Akinari-kun's potential, I aimed to make a song in a genre I hadn't done before.

From the beginning I had hoped to make something dark and fantastic, and then I was sent the open recruitment character "Loof"!
I was really torn between all the candidates that were sent to me, but I was drawn to the dark feeling he had so I chose him in the end.
The idea of a character who uses tarot is also reflected in the lyrics. I used several keywords related to the designs of the major arcana.
On one hand, when you connect those keywords, the contents can be summarized as being dark and fantastic, with an air of grim resolve.
But because the song's hook is bright and invigorating, I think it creates a pleasant feeling of discomfort.
Actually, because I've already sung it, I dream about the day the two of us can be up on stage together in a live performance.

Now then, about the number 23 in the title. Why on earth is it "23"?
For one thing, the numbers on the major arcana tarot cards end at 22.
I wondered... What would the feeling of "the sad fate of the nonexistent 23rd card" be like?
23 is said to be an enigmatic number with many mysteries.
If the games were still being numbered, this installment would have been Pop'n 23. There were various reasons.
Isn't it nice? Isn't it meaningful? Isn't it effective?

...Well, I only noticed the game numbering thing when the designer told me about it, though!!

​ Akinari

It's been a year and a half since "Power Of Nature"'s thorough analysis.
I became a member of PON's family that I had so wished for! Yayy!!

This time, the motif is tarot and the atmosphere is dark.
The theme was clear, but when it came to singing, It was difficult…
At that time, the keywords "duality of light and darkness"
led to the creation of twin vocals.
Since the intro is so cool that I get goosebumps when I hear it,
I'm glad if you play it and listen to it a lot!

Also, to everyone who participated in the contest,
thank you very much.
With each and every entry being so full of love and hard effort, I'm sure the staff members
had an awful lot of trouble making their selections.
I personally saw so many works, but I couldn't have chosen!
