Original song of POPS comes from "Ugoke! Purimucho"
(translated from part of this page http://592.jp/3541)
by LEAFYON (April 29, 2008)
The song from the first pop'n music game "I REALLY WANT TO HURT YOU (Theme: POPS)", with "Perfect bokura wa~" as the starting phrase adopted in the commercial of the CS version of pop'n music, and has been the song considered to be the face of pop'n, was based on an original song, and the recorded version in pop'n was an arrangement of the original song with lyrics. The original song had been used on the key chain prize machine called "Ugoke! Purimucho!". What kind of game machine really is this "Ugoke! Purimucho!"? The details from the following.
http://www.konami.co.jp/press/1997/r.9.12.9.html (Lenticular image key chain making machine "Ugoke! Purimucho!" released）
According to the KONAMI press release, which was published December 9, 1997, "Ugoke! Purimucho!" started running that late December of the same year. By taking two different poses, the object of the game is to create a key chain with an image that appears to move when viewed in different angles. It was found that the "original song" can be heard in the background during the photoshoot, and was also the background music during demonstration. Although I can't find an operational machine of it, I'd like to do one play and listen. Also, in 1998, a [Yomiuri] Giants version of Ugoke! Purimucho! was released. In this version, character frames with Giabbit-kun and the Giants logo were provided.
Dami-yan, Donna Q&A (PL 14)
Aya: Welcome to this week's Popper's Lounge!
Mary: This time, the Popper as requested a lot from all the fans, Donna!
Judy: And also supported by the core fans, the appearance of powerful Dami-yan!
Dami-yan: Hi, gentlemen! Are you fine?
Donna: I'm fine~!
Aya: -you were not supposed to answer there.
Donna: I mean, when Dami-yan-sama takes the effort to call, it's not rude not to answer to his call.
Judy: Donna is really a huge fan of Dami-yan, don't you think? I'll start the question right away. "What do you like about Dami-yan?" There's really a lot of questions.
Donna: There's no reason! I lose my mind in the soul put in the song.
Dami-yan: When my soul is felt, it's very likely to be with a young girl.
Donna: Nooo~, I've complimented Dami-yan-sama <3
Mary: That's nice, Donna. So, next question. "How old are you?" This question was from many men in the runaway.
Donna: I'm just a child... *mumbling*
Aya: "What are the occupation of your parents?"
Donna: My Papa is a trading merchant. My Mama is a cellist in Austria's top orchestra. She also teaches at the University of Music during the day. Both of them are busy all year round, the house is open.
Dami-yan: That's a pity.
Donna: No it's not! I... am not myself, because we're together always.
Dami-yan: As usual, my manner of talking is good?
Donna: Oooh, Dami-yan-sama is friendly <3
(Translation to be continued. What's Jiiya?)
Nothing else to see here, thank you!
Hello, I'm DJ suryong. I'm a kinda lethargic wiki editor who gets banned everytime I edit using a wifi connection...
I like playing pop'n music 1,2,3,4,5,6. i used to play 16 party. i also own pop'n music gb, gb animelo, portable and portable 2. Currently I've reached a Lv. 37 wall on arcades (Pop'n Music 16 PARTY), and a Lv. 40 wall on the portable version (I got rusty though and currently I cannot clear any Lv. 40 song). I am currently playing portable 2.
My favorite characters are Sanae-chan, Sholl Kee, and Hiroshi Jingu. btw did you know that Sanae was named "Jacqui" in the American version of pop'n music? And Sholl Kee is "Ken"?
I was also obsessed with PARQUETS. I have listened to pop'n music artist collection - Parquets, hummingbird, parquet circle, and parabola.
I was also obsessed with dormir as well. I also admire TOMOSUKE for his versatile musical genius. When I was a kid, I had no idea that the majority of the songs I play on various BEMANI games were his. I only knew he composed What is Love? on beatmania 7thMIX...
What do I contribute you might ask? Well... mostly screenshots of characters from the PS1 games and the djmain trilogy of arcade versions (PM1-3), and if I discover something new about these old versions that nobody seems to know, I post them right away. I also like to translate information when I have the time, but I have barely any knowledge about the Japanese language and sometimes I need OJ Tsuyoshi's help, or from the Philippine Pop'n Music Players Group (yes, there exists one).
I decided to make a gallery for miscellaneous screenshots which I cannot add into the pages themselves, or I don't know which page to put into.
Filament Circus Lyrics
English (in parentheses = Google Translate)
"Are you ready?"
I would dream about tweeting on the eggshell
(And was cracked and black ground hex reliquary before you found)
It seems, everyone is always seemingly broken naive mind
You can acrobat to the other side of the tightrope swinging by the wind
Don't panic My Humpty Dumpty
It's okay to cry after failure
The show must go on
Marine snow ori tsumoru yamiyo no kanata Mada minu hikari no kuni mezashi teru Subete no mirai wa koko kara hajimaru Goran yo Deep under the sea Natsukashii furusato Tadoritsuku hi ga kuru made Far over the waves Aoi umi o koete Bokura no tabi wa tsudzuku yo Yura yura yurara Mizu no kagami de michiru yume terasu yo Kibou no akari fuki kesu arashi ga kite mo Tachimukau yuuki wa sute tari shinai Tebanashita hohoemi meguriau tame ni Futatabi Deep under the sea Natsukashii furusato Tadoritsuku hi ga kuru made Far over the waves Aoi umi o koete Bokura no tabi wa tsudzuku yo Yura yura yurara Hitoikigoto ni Kirameku kokyuu kanaderu waltz Yura yura yurara Mizu no kagami de michiru yume terasu yo Deep under the sea Deep under the sea
Marine snow piles down beyond the dark night Aiming for the unseen light of the land All of the future begins here See Deep under the sea A nostalgic hometown Until the day that will come Far over the waves Beyond the blue sea Our journey continues Yula-yula-yulala Filling the reflection of water with bright dreams The hope of light that will put out the storm comes Our courage to pull through cannot be casted off Let out a smile at every encounter Again Deep under the sea A nostalgic hometown Until the day that will come Far over the waves Beyond the blue sea Our journey continues Yula-yula-yulala Every breath Plays a shining harmonic waltz Yula-yula-yulala Filling the reflection of water with bright dreams Deep under the sea Deep under the sea
Popper's Lounge 10 (ice, Bamboo?, P-1&P-2)
Mary: This time is gonna be the 10th Popper's Lounge!
Judy: Thanks to all the fans who keep sending us questions every time.
Aya: This time, 4 poppers appeared. In order please.
Bamboo?: Hi, I'm Bamboo!
Aya: ...and your real name is?
Aya: WHOA!!! I won't listen to you until you take away your make up!
Mary: Well well, Aya calm down. His name's absolutely a secret for work reasons. For now, let Bamboo have the decision.
P-1: Aw, you're fighting? What a difficult situation.
P-1: Ha? What are you trying to say? Comedy show performer talk is also coming?
Judy: Yeah. Aren't you P-1 and P-2 gonna introduce yourselves?
P-1: Thanks. It is I, P-1.
P-1: He says "I am his partner, P-2".
Mary: Interesting way of talking.
P-1: We have gained a Japanese translation software made in Russia today. My partner normally talks like that.
Ice: I'm Ice. Thank you despite what happened earlier.
Aya: There had been a lot of fans sending us mail saying, "We want you to talk more!".
Ice: I'm not good at talking. But I'll try.
Judy: Well, first, Bamboo? Lemme ask you this question. "Why are you like Bamboo?"
Bamboo?: Since the size of my afro was funky after all. But now, girls are good. In fact, I'm a beautiful girl.
Mary: A girl?! No way.
Bamboo? Won't you show the mail from 1000 people who wanted to see my real face? Hey, Aya-chan.
Aya: Right, next is for P-1 and P-2. "Since both of you are comedians, won't you tell a conte?"
P-1: What are you saying? Telling funny skits is the life! Conte is also good. Conte is also good because, I thought in order to master the way of the arts, you have to be able to tell a funny story.
P-1: Ha? What are you trying to say? Comedy show performer talk is also coming? ...I can't hear you!! It would be a big deal after seeing the sponsor.
Judy: "What does P-1&P-2 stand for?"
P-1: Do you know Russian things? In Russian cuisine we have "Pirozhki" which can be eaten for snacks. We're called "Pirozhki No. 1" and "Pirozhki No. 2". Oh, we were given the name pirozkhi because they're affordable, and to cut costs our dimensions were messed with during production.
Mary: "What do you think of "KRAFT?"?"
P-1: Wow, do I look like Kraft. What kind of oil does he use? I want to be friends.
Aya: Alright, "What power source do you run on?"
P-1: Oil, of course.
Judy: Next is Ice, nice to meet you. A lot of your fan calls are coming from girls, and also support from guys are very best. A lot of questions were also coming! And interesting that they're centralized much on the same question!
Ice: Is that so? But it could be any question. I'm nervous.
Judy: Ok, question. "How did you make a production with Timer?"
Ice: Originally I have my own musical work. I decided to provide music and also sing a song since I'm an acquaintance of Timer's and my sense is good.
Timer: Once you got this voice in the ears, anybody would listen.
Mary: Oh, Timer. Aren't you making a live appearance next to the studio?

あの娘に あげるのね 私じゃなくて あなたの 胸の奥に光る 紅いルビィを 横取りしたいほど 悪い娘で いい 本当の気持ちは もう こんなに罪深いの 神様 教えて 夢の中では 今も 何故なの 優しい 私だけの男の子だわ あの娘に あげたのね 私はひとり 今夜も繰り返すの 眠れぬ 恋のシャレード 哀しき 恋のシャレード 愚かな 過ちと 人は言うけど 誰かを 傷つける 幼い愛は熱病 くちづけ されたくて 瞳をとじた 何度も ねだったのに 振り向いてくれないの 神様 助けて 明日の朝には きっと 知らない所へ 行ってしまう 彼を返して 涙が 奏でてる 小さなメロディ あなたに届かないの 永遠に響くシャンソン 神様 教えて 夢の中では 今も 何故なの 優しい 私だけの男の子だわ あの娘に あげたのね 私はひとり 今夜も繰り返すの 眠れぬ 恋のシャレード 哀しき 恋のシャレード

That girl who grows up is not me Shining behind your chest is a red ruby I want to snatch it. Can I be a bad girl? True feelings are becoming so sinful. God, tell me now even in a dream Why is my only boy not friendly? That girl who grew up, I am alone Tonight repeats the sleepless charade of love Sorrowful charade of love Stupid mistakes I say to people Young love is a sickness that hurts someone Because I want to be kissed, I close my eyes I'd be begging many times not to turn around God, help me tomorrow morning without fail He went somewhere i don't know, return him Tears are playing a tiny melody that will not reach to you, forever resonating chanson God, tell me now even in a dream Why is my only boy not friendly? That girl who grew up, I am alone Tonight repeats the sleepless charade of love Sorrowful charade of love
