This might be one of the cutest songs I’ve ever heard. *squeals*
From what I can gather, Sayonara Ponytail is a three-member acoustic pop group that seems to exist only in drawings. Yep. Members Miina, Nacchan, and Ayumin, along with their cat Kuroneko, are the black-and-white creations of illustrator Yuritan. It’s not too clear to me how much of this group is real and how much of it is fiction or what exactly is the role of the illustrator in the production of the music. Regardless, the group manages to remain firmly rooted in Sayo-Pony World, a fantasy that’s easy to uphold because the group doesn’t give live performances and prefers to connect with their fans only via MySpace and Twitter.
Most of Sayo-Pony’s MVs are adorably animated (see above) and feature the three “singers” (though apparently the members can be “erased” for bad behavior) – and this is one of my favorite songs by them. I remember looking up ～たり… ～たりする after listening to this song because it was repeated over and over again in the chorus.
- ～たり… ～たりする: VST+거나; 예로 들고 그 밖에도 비슷한 일이 있을 때 씀. Used to express multiple actions or states of similar nature.
Actually, that’s why I feel using a song to learn grammar is so great because a lot of songs tend to use parallel sentence constructions in order to sound more lyrical. It’s a good way to pick up vocabulary too, obviously.
