What's better than a Koakuma? How about a devilishly mischievous one that loves to dance?!
(Also: is it can be new meme time? ⓛ⩊ⓛ)

(quick edit: by request a few Koa dance gif's have been posted here: https://twitter.com/RenardAnimation/s...)
Non-compressed gif loops can be found on my Google Drive:

Pardons the long wait, everyone. It's been three quarters of a year since my last video.
I was called back to a previous video game project to update and create some new graphics for it, since it was moving to a bigger gaming platform than its original format, so I was occupied for a few months there.
I had already done a lot of this, including two other animations before the whole game graphics thing, but when I finally finished those graphics, I came back and realized how much time I had lost on my own stuff, while it was going so well and fell back into full-on depre-mode for a while, losing even more time...
Again, I'm still practicing with TVPaint Animation and I have learned SO much since the Momiji test... which is nearly at 50k views (WTH, people?! lol).
This one here is still a bit sloppy, as many parts were rushed... like Patchouli, despite being large and in the foreground.
I had the idea for this animation for a while, but I wondered what music to use. I figured something like a remix of EoSD Stage 4 - Voile, the Magic Library, since that's where you will find the "star" of this video. But then I saw this:
Drop the bomb (Pug dancing): https://youtu.be/P8Na5jvNELg
Using a similar idea that I was going for, with a very cool, upbeat DDR song so I had to give it a whirl with that! Hope you all like it and have a good laugh! I know I had great fun making it! ⓛ⩊ⓛノ

(SPOILER) I'm actually doing one more, similar to this, along with a bonus animation that I already finished back in April, so look forward to next time! (It won't be as long a wait, I promise!)

Artistic comments (Annotations removed from video):
0:07 "...mukyu (don't diss my beautiful eyes!)" Many artists draw Patchouli with really weird eyes this way. I wanted to try also... didn't turn out as planned! But they are pleasingly weird.
0:24 "BWAHAHAHA! FEAR ME!" Yes. That IS a reference to Koishi Komeiji's Heart throbbing adventure, as well as the old saying, something about demons/dishonest people speaking with two tongues (lies).
0:27 Much ♥ for NND:sm8420135!
0:29 WTF AM I READING?!

Music: Scotty D. - "DROP THE BOMB"
Animation: Daniel Renard (me).

Disclaimer:
I do not own these characters, nor the music in this video. I only did the animation for practice and the love and enjoyment of animating.
Thus; Video isn't monetized.

Additional information:
Many artists, animators, MMD'ers have either allowed to share- (or in some unfortunate cases, had their works taken without permission and re-posted) on YouTube for those without a NicoNico Douga account to watch and enjoy. Many of these works brings a great smile to my face and even warms my heart at times, so I would like to return this favor and permit that my animation MAY be re-posted on NND (though, be sure none haven't already done so beforehand). I only ask that credits and links to original videos are properly stated.
I do not currently own a NicoNico Douga account, although I do plan to at some point. Once/If I do, I do not require existing animations by me, to be taken down to be posted on my Nico account, they can remain on the account(s) where their were originally posted.

Thank you.
