About

Platinum Disco” (Japanese: 白金ディスコ, Purachina Disco) is a popular song in a Japanese TV anime Nisemonogatari, the 4th season of Monogatari Series. This song is a popular musical resource for mashups and MAD videos on the Japanese video sharing service Nico Nico Douga (NND).

Origin

“Platinum Disco” is the opening theme song for the “Tsukihi Phoenix” arc that aired 4 episodes from February 25th to March 17th of 2012. This song was written by Satoru Kōsaki[1] and sung by Yuka Iguchi[2], the voice actor for the heroine in this arc Tsukihi Araragi. The composer is also famous for his many works in The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, Lucky Star and The IDOLM@STER series, and also wrote "Renai Circulation" and "Hello Soybeans Song".



Spread

This disco track which is reminiscent of Japanese Bon Festival[3] music soon caught a much attention among viewers due to its cuteness. This opening movie soon reuploaded to NND in the following day of the first airing[4] and introduced into fan works and parodies as a musical resource.[5] In particular, NND users created several mashup songs of this “Platinum Disco” and "I'll Go to Tokyo" by IKZO since both of them has the same Japannish mood and BPMs. Among those instances, this IKZO mashup succeeded to reach to a large amount of audiences, and had earned over 1 million page views in its first 5 months.
