The game takes place at the Bon Festival. The Donpans must clap during the song. The player controls the one on the farthest right. When the song starts, the lyrics show up on the screen and highlight the words as they are sung. The player must clap along with the others when the word "Pan" is sung.
Yone: First, Nintendo created the basis for the song. I wrote the lyrics and music myself, asked a designer girl to sing the song, and had Tsunku♂ listen to it. Then, Tsunku♂ complimented me on my song, saying, "The singer is good". I had faint hopes that they might use the song as it was, but then, after that, Ami Tokito sang it for us. Even though it was just a draft, I put a lot of energy into it (laughs). The designer girl also voices Space Dance's "Turn Right" and "Kokuhaku Machine".
Tsunku♂: I wanted to include the phrase "Ninki Agare ba, Kyūryō agaru" in some way. When I wrote the lyrics, I tried to rhyme it with "Hanabi agare ba~" and thought, "What else will go up?" I thought of things like, "Tempura agetara, Cholesterol agaru" (laughs). Also, for the part "Sore hikkurikaette Dondodonpa-n" I asked Nintendo to re-draw the characters spinning around. I thought the audience would be excited to see them spinning at a live performance.
As mentioned in the commentary above, the song for this game was originally performed in the first draft by a "designer girl" who is known to have voiced Space Dance and Kokuhaku Machine. Based on internal data, this may be Sachiko Ikeo.
Although every other 2P game received a 2P version of their arrange version as well, this one did not. I.e., there is no "Bon Dance 2P".
