Wakuteka Take a Chance Profile Q/A (part 1/5)

Q1. What point are you careful about when singing “Wakuteka Take a chance”?

Michishige Sayumi: Pitch!!!!!
Tanaka Reina: Power and rhythm!!!
Fukumura Mizuki: Sing with a feeling of riding the previous singer’s wave.There’s a falsetto part, and when I move to the front and sing with a 16-beat rhythm, I always sing carefully, but right now, my challenge is to sing normally while dancing without worrying.
Ikuta Erina: Making sure I sing properly into the microphone
Sayashi Riho: I try not to let my voice be overpowered by the song (・ω・)ノ
Suzuki Kanon: Since it has a cool melody, I’m careful that my voice isn’t too light you can’t hear it.
Iikubo Haruna: “Shake it up!” and “Shake it out!” have similar pronunciations, so I’m careful about that.
Ishida Ayumi: Since especially the hook has a firm tone, I sing it with strength
Sato Masaki: That I don’t deviate from the rhythm
Kudo Haruka: Don’t forget the robot-like feeling!

Q2. What point are you careful about when dancing to “Wakuteka Take a chance”?

Michishige Sayumi: The diagonal shape that everyone makes with their hands during the chorus. Mine is at a difficult height, so I concentrate and do my best!!
Tanaka Reina: The formation and timing!!!
Fukumura Mizuki
- The part in the lyrics that go “Kaze wo kanjiteru” [Feeling the wind] and “Chikyuu ga mawatteru” [The earth spins] and everyone does the wave. Holding hands and doing the wave is hard, but it represents “chikyuu” [earth], so I want to dance it more cleanly.
- I definitely don’t forget the 16-beat rhythm!
- I’m doing my best to make the part when we’re meandering during “Shirigaru-chan~” “Shockx8″ and when the 10 of us make a diagonal line look cleaner.
Ikuta Erina: Making sure I look like a robot, that part
Sayashi Riho: There are lots of different parts, so I’m careful about a variety of things, such as the tense parts, the accents, the smooth parts, etc
Suzuki Kanon: Since doing it more seriously is cooler, I’m working hard so that its sharpness comes out.
Iikubo Haruna: During the part in the chorus when we hold our hands out at an angle, I’m careful not to be out of alignment.
Ishida Ayumi: Picking the right accent to match the sounds
Sato Masaki: Matching everyone’s timing and count
Kudo Haruka: Don’t forget the detailed rhythm, be careful with the angles…

Q3. What was hard about the dance to “Wakuteka Take a chance”?

Michishige Sayumi: The diagonal formation that everyone makes during the chorus.We couldn’t quite do it cleanly, so we had trouble with it.
Tanaka Reina: The formation and dance genre…probably???
Fukumura Mizuki
- The part when the lyrics go “Seishun wo muda ni sunjanai” [Don't waste youth]
- The part when our feet take turns going in and out.
Ikuta Erina: The rhythm
Sayashi Riho: Getting everyone to match in terms of angles and stuff!
Suzuki Kanon: The hook >< When everyone’s bodies turn toward each other it gets difficult.
Iikubo Haruna: The snappy movement when we’re moving around
Ishida Ayumi: Having the perfect hand height when we raise our hands in order during the hook.
Sato Masaki: The choreography of “Hora daichi ka~ra no me~guumi~” was rough.
Kudo Haruka: Rhythm! The small details are hard.

Michishige Sayumi: Whoa~ So cool~~(*>_<*)
Tanaka Reina: “Another cool one!!! Woohoo~ ↑↑”
Fukumura Mizuki
- I thought, “It’s so cool!”
- The A melody has 5 patterns and the 4th line in the 5th pattern that goes “Dore ga honki de~” [Which one is serious~] could only sound like the “Oshiri ○○○ mushi” line from a children’s song (^^;
Ikuta Erina: One, Two, Three. Part 2
Sayashi Riho: I thought, “It’s such a cool song, as if a robot is coming to life”
