This article focuses on the short Pop'n Music information of Tran.
dj TAKAのホームグラウンドであるビートマニアIIDXでは既に大人気となっているトランス。 二年前、IIDXにトランスが初登場した際に、一緒にやってきたのが謎の宇宙人少女、トラン。
今度はポップンにトランスが初登場になると聞いて、dj TAKAにくっついてきてしまったようです。 見た目はちょっとコワいかもしれないけど、実はとっても友好的な宇宙人。仲良くしてあげてね。
A trance song that was already becoming very popular in beatmania IIDX, appearing in dj TAKA's home ground. Two years ago, when trance in IIDX made its debut, Tran, a mysterious alien girl came along.
This time, listen to the trance in Pop'n Music on its first appearance, it seems it has been stuck for dj TAKA. Though she might look a little bit scary, she is actually a kind and friendly alien. She has got along with them.
Other than knowing that she is a lonely alien girl, her existence is a mystery.
Tran is a tan-skinned alien girl with light blue eyes and very short white hair in a curved perm. She wears a baby blue minidress and bracelets that match her white boots. Her original color palette is confirmed in another Trance song, from ee'MALL 2nd Avenue in Pop'n Music 15 ADVENTURE.
Tran's 2P color palette simply gives her a marshmallow pink color scheme, and her eye color was kept intact. It was later confirmed in Trance from ee'MALL in Pop'n Music 9.
Tran's redesign is automatically drawn in 3D graphics, and her skin and hair are shaded into a gray tint. Her attire is identical to her debut, but she wields a red, arrow-shaped guitar.
Tran gains a winter attire: a light cream-colored coat with walnut-colored sections, and dark velvet mittens, scarf, and pants. Tran's eyes are recolored cyan.
TRAN's sprite is a slightly modified version of her pop'n music 9 sprite - her gray color scheme changes to pink with red eyes.
