X danced like a Butterfly (Japanese; 蝶のように舞いーニョ, Chou No You Ni Maiinyo), also known as Maiinho Series (舞いーニョシリーズ) on the Japanese web, refers to a series of MAD/hand-drawn animated videos inspired by the sexy Gay Dance by a Brazillian adult model Richardo Milos. In late 2010, he accidentally became a sensation by being featured on Nico Nico Douga’s (NND) Billy Herrington/Wrestling Series meme.


The dance video was originally uploaded to an English gay porn website “Jock Butt”, and inported to NND as one of the wrestling series videos on October 15th, 2010.[1] His groovy dance and smug look frequently shown on the video soon caught much attention among wrestling series fanatics. He soon became one of the popular characters in the series and was nicknamed RonalGiinho (ロナウ自慰ニョ; “自慰” Gii means “masturbation” in Japanese) by NND users because his looks wearing a bandanna evoked the famous Brazillian football player Ronaldinho.[2] In this time, none imagined that his real masturbating video was leaked.[3]


Then, the trigger of this fad was the video reproducing his dance and smug look by hand drawn animation with the Swedish pop duo SMiLE.dk’s popular song “butterfly (UPSWING MIX)” which was famous for being included in Dance Dance Revolution[4] series by KONAMI. This video “Dancing like a Butterfly” was uploaded to NND on July 14th, 2011.[5]

The character performing this crazy dance in this video is Yuyuko Saigyouji from Touhou Project series.


This video got the 1st rank in NND daily ranking, and spreaded the appeal of the dance to the web. Other amatuer creators soon began mimicking the video by their hand drawn animations or 3D characters models by Miku Miku Dance. Moreover, the SMiLE.dk’s song shared the spotlight with the dance, and began being reused a lot in MAD videos.

As of July 2012, the amount of videos related to this series on NND is more than 280.[6]
