Song Connections / RemixesEdit

  • A rock remix by TAG, named VANESSA -轉生篇-, is on GuitarFreaks V5 & DrumMania V5.

TriviaEdit

  • VANESSA is the EXTRA STAGE song for beatmaniaIIDX 14 GOLD. Clearing it will allow the player to access Fascination MAXX as the ONE MORE EXTRA STAGE.
  • 朱雀 is the Chinese/Japanese name for the Vermilion bird, one of the Four Symbols of the Chinese constellations.
    • In the North American and European versions of the DanceDanceRevolution series, 朱雀 is romanized as SUZAKU. It is also romanized this way in the background video.
  • Throughout the entire video of this song, a portrait of "Vanessa" is displayed. While the portrait displays certain facial expressions based on the player's performance in beatmaniaIIDX, the DDR version does not move at all.
    • VANESSA's genre, DECEPTIVE GABBA, is also featured in the background video.
  • VANESSA features 朱雀's signature loud guitar sound, which has been used on every DJ Yoshitaka song under his Suzaku alias so far.
  • Unlike the other songs in the Boss Rush X2 course, VANESSA uses the strong style method for its charts.
  • VANESSA's beatmaniaIIDX movie is shown on a stage, thus retaining all on-screen dancers.
    • VANESSA's background video was removed from DDR (2013) due to crashing issues, similar to how the song also lost its background video in beatmaniaIIDX 20 tricoro due to the game's new interface. However, the old video can still be found in the tricoro HDD.
      • VANESSA's background video was later readded to DDR 2013 in an update.

Song Production InformationEdit

There is enough separation between "mental anguish" and normality.

The melody is divided between left and right as if to echo his thoughts full of hypocrisy.

He was seen as a "moralist" but suffered as a "hypocrite." His ultimate fate will be welcome to him!

...Or not!

Video Production InformationEdit

Vanessa de Verdet

1794-1844

Earl Vanessa de Verde.

He was so obsessed with the idea of noble life that he suffered sadly for it.
A portrait called Earl Vanessa portrays the grief that dwells with him.

In 1845, the painting, which had the bottom half burnt during the war, was restored.

Currently, the painting is kept at a particular museum.

There seems to be a strange event, where a burnt ash pile gathers under his portrait.

... or maybe not.
