pop'n music Animelo 2gou is the second of two anime-focused releases of the rhythm game franchise. It is infamous for having a triple note modifier, in which some songs become near impossible with it toggled on. Ever heard of sheer button-pressing torture?

Unused Graphics

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: REV_H.GCZ and HEROINES.GCZ. Which one of these is used?

Mockup Image

Files BOWLING.GCZ and BOWLING.XCZ contain a slightly cut-off mockup screenshot of the Bowling mode introduced in this game. Notice how the graphics are of Tiger Mask while the lyrics are of Combattler V no theme (the latter of which is not even in the final game!)


Placeholder Image?

Files NON_4.GCZ and NON_4.XCZ contain a placeholder image consisting of the background of the song Tongari boushi no Memole, but with the word "おつかれさま" (Thank you) crudely drawn on top of it.


Development Text

Security Strings

The game's security strings, present in offset 0x8B0BC of a decompressed FIREBEAT.EXE all consist of lyrics of anime songs present in the game.

String Song
Kyou mo dokoka de Devilman
Honoo no Kinnikuman
Great Mazinger
Ijigen story
