Stays in the lawn get on the hot air balloon
Take the wings with me fly into the sky
When you want (find) a best way out, don't be scare, don't feel lost
Let's take away these blinding lights, let's go somewhere nowhere.
(Stay in the blue sky with me. To get down. To get high.)
La la la la la la la get on the hot air balloon
La la la la la la la get on the hot air balloon
Sing with me and laugh with me.
Get on the hot air balloon.

The Wikians say...[]

FGO's QuickRun:

  • A song that shouldn't be mentioned by me...OH BOY. This song has crazy crazy off beats that make me cringe. TP wouldn't be your one to focus if you are a newbie. Instead, focus on the screen. The beat can wait. Once you are ready for the TP journey, study the chart. Beware, this song may be so cute, it kills. Killed me.

The tune and the Mandoras are so kawaii (I just had to say that lol)! The vocals fit nicely, and otherwise, Mandoras are my lucky symbol 'cause on my first try, I got 88.88TP for it. Rayark will do better in future! :D


When I first looked at this song, I wondered what the heck were those creatures in the illustrations. I later found out those were mandoras from another game from Rayark called Mandora...


Note that I installed Mandora before I installed Deemo. Mom loved this game. The chart in hard mode was harder than Spectrum until I MMed it.

かわいい!! I never expected Mandora to have their own theme song. Easy-to-Master.


The speed still hates me. The 8-grouped notes hate me. AND I HATE THIS CHART!


Truffly Tips:

  • Ugh. With this song in particular, you'll have to trust your eyes more than your ears. Don't think your TP will be magnificent if you play off of instinct, since the sluggish scan line along with the various off-sync moments won't take you lightly.
  • Yes, eight-note groups exist within this song. Don't go full "John Rambo" on them when they appear, because, again, the slow scan line will hurt your TP if you do so. Control your speed.
  • Aside from the aforementioned TP complaints, getting an MM on this piece is actually quite easy. I'd call this piece the perfect beginner's start, more than Chemical Star or Retrospective.
