Song Description

Song Analysis

glory day took influences from J-rock music. Perhaps the song is designed to mimic anime opening songs, from the theme to its structure. Guitar riffs headlined the song and its key point. Moreover, the song is symbolic in itself from the fact that BEXTER and Mycin.T, representing the old and new generation of DJMAX composers, collaborated and made a great synergy.

K-indie musician DyoN Joo provided vocals for glory day. Her strong voice gave this song a very emotional feeling as it tried to build up the listener's spirit.

Theme songs for DJMAX games are considered to be challenging or some sort of anything except being too easy for players. glory day is no exception to this notion.

Background Animation

glory day involves symbolic themes like death and rebirth, which is comparable to the circumstances regarding the DJMAX franchise for the past years. Moreover, the BGA also has a plethora of cameos and references to previous DJMAX games, in which the visual remixer DumpingLIFE challenged gamers to spot them all.

It tells the story of a girl named Play, who visited a place called Game Graveyard where various DJMAX games and staffs are dead and buried. On the tombstone of L (the character from Ask to wind Live Mix and the mascot for DJMAX Portable), Play prays and placed some offerings; a bunch of DJMAX memorabilia.

From the tombstone, the corpse of L is resurrected as a zombie, along with other DJMAX characters. Play tries to run away but eventually falls. As Play awaits for her doomed fate, her PSP suddenly shines and summoned a large crown which smashes the zombies flat. L's zombified corpse undergoes a transformation and she turns into El Clear, while other characters also turned into their original self. El Clear then gives Play her blessing because she still believes in DJMAX.

SHIHYUN's character design blends in western and eastern influences. Gamers familiar with anime series Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt might find some similarities between glory day and the aforementioned anime series' aesthetics, which in turn was heavily inspired by western cartoons such as Powerpuff Girls.
