Kumafes Report, Part 4
After Hatune Miku, Masahito Hishiki did Japanese dance to the tune of an anime theme song. It brought me a fresh sense combined a Japanese traditional culture and the latest one. I hope he will inspire the Japanese traditional dance field. His dance may have a positive impact on young people who aren’t interested in Japanese dances. I think his dance would have been better if he had sharper movements. I couldn’t help comparing with my mother’s dance, who is learning a Japanese dance for decades. I hope he will be a help to preserve Japanese culture. I hear he is also an actor. I look forward to his activities in the future.
This is the theme song of anime “Gunslinger Girl” sung by Kokia. It has a beautiful sound with sadness. Masahito Hishiki chose good music. Did you dance on the last post? Then, sing a song this time!
Kumafes Report, Part 3
The next performer was “Mito” impersonating Hatune Miku. She mimicked Miku’s dance moves. Hatune Miku is one of the vocaloid characters. Vocaloid is a singing synthesizer program, which can create a natural sounding voice. My daughter likes Hatune Miku very much. She prefers songs by synthetic voice to human voices. Hmmm strange.
I know the feeling that people want to mimic her dance. I used to dance with my daughter, playing a Wii dancing game of Japanese songs. To get a good score, we waved, swung and shook the wii remote control to the beat of the songs. lol Furthermore, I wanted to dance to American music, so I bought “We Cheer”. But the reaction of remote control wasn’t as good as Japanese one. I wonder if the latest We Cheer has improved?
Back to Mito, she was cute dressing up and dancing as Miku. I pasted the nice Miku’s dance video along with Mito’s one. I’m tempted to synchronize these videos. Doesn’t this video make you want to dance? Let’s dance!
