Dance Group - Ars Magna by Lat3mur Dance Group - Ars Magna by Lat3mur
I present you the 2.5 dimensional, amazing Japanese dance group, アルスマグナ ARS MAGNA!  :iconinloveplz:

Blond hair - Tatsuki
Purple hair - Sensei Kurou Kento
Green hair - Pak Witt
Silver hair - Izumi Sou
Red hair - Akira
Bunny - Constantine

So what happened is that Akira forgot his necktie in his haste, because of being late for school. So he sees Sou-kun few metres ahead and decides to  'borrow' Sou-kun's neck tie. He runs to Sou-kun, but unfortunately trips at Sensei's feet. Therefore, his weight was put at Sou-kun. Sou-kun falls backwards - somehow being able to keep his stoic face (his trademark) as always - while he continues to read his math book. At the other side Pak-kun put his arm around the shoulders of his best friend Tatsuki. Chatting their way towards the entrance of Chronos High School. When Pak-kun sees the rest of the gang and raised his hand to greet everyone, he felt someone (or something) kicking him from behind. Just then Sou-kun was falling backwards, so he trips at Sou-kun feet, leading to a dramatic fall forward. Sensei has no idea what to do with this bunch.

_____________________


My favourite out of the bunch would be Sou-kun ^0^ (I seem to have a weakness for silver haired anime dudes, haha!) Initially, I wanted to name this drawing: Constantine's kick! Because their pink rabbit Constantine doesn't like Pak-kun to be so close to Tatsuki. Pak was too close, had his arm around the shoulders of Tatsuki and pinched Tatsuki's cheeks! Tatsuki belongs to him alone! :iconpunch1plz: So he kicked Pak-kun away from them. I could already hear Constantine's evil laugh :icononionxdplz: But since not many internationals know them yet, it would be easier for categorization with a clearer title. 

For the details I wanted to stay close to their real life characters, but I couldn't help but to add a little bit of my own in certain parts.

_____________________

A small introduction to them. Ars Magna is a cosplay dancegroup. They call themselves 2.5 dimensional because their anime counterparts were created at the same time as their real life characters. They all have their own unique personality and during interviews they are also in character, which is so cute! They are called 'odorite' (if I remember correctly), because they upload their dance videos on Niconico. I believe this hype started after the Vocaloid community started to expand. 

If you feel interested, here's a Youtube link to their dance in NicoNico Dance Master Final: www.youtube.com/watch?v=YOwlIC…

Please support them by watching their original videos on nicovideo.jp (you have to create an account first, before watching).

I'm so sorry for the late reply! I'm happy to meet another overseas Ars Magna fan! Did you watch their last live Nicoradi recording, ah, I'm going to miss those. And thank you for the sweet comment, it means a lot^^ Happy New Year to you by the way!

Don't worry about it! Yes I did watch it and I'm going to really miss being able to watch them (especially Tatsuki and Sou!). At least they still put up new dances though (finally finished learning smile again and yakimochi no kotae!) That's alright, I really it :) happy new year to you too, hope it's a good year :D

I know right, I'll miss those as well. Their dance vids are truly awesome, but I think I've come to like them even more because of those nicoradi shows. Oh for real? You managed to learn their choreography just by watching their vids? That's amazing, haha! Those two are cute dances, in which Tatsuki kind of takes the spotlight XD Is yours a solo version, or do you have friends who join you in the dance? I personally tried to learn their cover on Lucifer, but in some parts it went way to fast for me to actually comprehend their moves XD My goal is to master, Lucifer, Cloud Rider and Gigantic, haha! I would love to do Higurashi Moratorium, but that one is kind of impossible on your own, haha! Hmm.. Maybe their newest Christmas special, pink luv it (???) will be cool as well. Haha, guess I just want to learn all of them XD

I know, they really are amazing! I'm exactly the same, I feel like I know them even better now because of their nicoradi shows! Yes, it took me between 1-2 weeks to learn both basically and then I've just been adding in all of the extra turns and movements as I've danced them more :) thanks! Mine is just a solo version as I don't know anyone else who would be willing to dance (I wish I knew more people who would!) I love all 3 of those dances, I know part of the chorus for gigantic and little bits of cloud rider (I just can't do the knee turns no matter how hard I try :( !) I was so happy to see the Christmas dance, maybe that will be the next one I try to learn, haha! Hopefully we will both be able to learn all of them! Maybe try electric angel I found that quite easy to learn?

I know right, especially Akira. I didnt particularly liked him, but ever since the Nicoradi shows, I just feel he's such a good guy, he's like the big brother in the group, taking care of the others. Sensei is just so funny and fuzzy, certainly didnt expect that from their dance videos haha!! At least we kind of know more of them except for their passion and skills for dancing haha! I've been fan of Sou, but his Nicoradi shows kind of made me like him less. Still like his way of dancing, so alluring, but less as a person :P

I'm the same, I wish I knew ppl who would do the dances with me haha! The kneeturns, oh, those are so hard, I've no clue how they do that, neither could I ever do that part at Sou's solo part, in which everyone gets up from the ground haha!

You definitely should try the christmas special, that one is so cute. I totally went awww when I saw Sou playing with his Santa hat XD that reminds me of his collar-incident haha! They were talking about it on Nicoradi XD Sou said it was a christmas present, and Akira went on asking 'where' it will be next year? Haha!!!

Electric Angel? I can't really recall what song/dance that was, the name doesn't ring a bell XD I will have to look that up some time haha!

He was always my least favourite as well but now I feel so much respect for him! I agree, he is just like an older brother for the others! Sensei is hilarious, he always seems so happy and full of energy, I can't believe that he is the oldest in the group, haha! I know what you mean, he seemed quite quiet and didn't really seem to take part when everyone else was joking around. But I do still think he is an excellent dancer :)

Why can't anyone else enjoy dancing like we do?!?! I truly hate those knee turns, I just done know how they do it (I think it must be some sort of magic!). I can't figure out how they can sink to the floor and then get up so easily at Sou's solo, it's annoying me so much yet I still can't stop watching it and trying to do it, haha!

I've decided that I'm going to try and do it so I will let you know how it goes! The collar-incident! I think of that on the Nicoradi show every time I watch that video now :D I think that was a pretty good Christmas present for us from Sou! I can't help but wonder 'where' it could be next year!!!!

Electric angel is the one where it is just Tatsuki dancing with the maids (I think they are called BoopBoopBeDoop?) but if you look up electric angel on YouTube it is the one with Tatsuki in a Ciel Phantomhive cosplay (from the anime Black Butler/Kuroshitsuji in case you haven't seen it!). Definitely check it out though as I found it really easy to learn, haha!!! :D

I know right, it totally changed my view of Akira. He's always backing the others up, so cute. Even though Sou keeps making fun of him, especially if he mispronounced stuff haha! I felt he was the only one who actually took Nicoradi serious, the others were usually just screwing around haha, but it was really fun to watch nonetheless.

Haha, I feel the same way about sensei. Is he really the oldest from the group? I thought Akira might be the oldest and Bak the youngest. I've no clue though haha!

Yeah, Sou is usually quiet and whenever he talks he has to stay in the 'cool' character. But he was always posing before the camera, making all the fangirls go 'kyaaa!!!' Haha!! Out of them all I think Sou is the best dancer, it's just a certain way he moves which makes everything so smooth and elegant. But yeah, I might be biased, since I like him from the start and my eyes are usually glued on him during the dances, so I pay less attention to the others I guess haha!!

How's the dance progressing? Did you manage to master a few of them? I havent been practicing tho, haha! Oh the kneeturns are like their trademark, so is the getting up part in Sou's solo in Cloudrider, you can actually find the same moves in other dances. I dont think I can ever master those two moves haha!!

Ah I see! That was a cute dance haha, but Tatsuki is cute in general haha, so everything he does counts as cute XDXD I'm more into their group dances than the others. I guess Haiboku no shounen is an exeption. But that one has Sou in it, so that was to be expected haha!!

I didnt know he was cosplaying ciel phantomhive in the video haha, but now you mentioned it, his outfit indeed looks like ciel. Haha the idea just never crossed my mind haha, I thought it was his normal attire when he wasnt at school, since his house was really rich and stuff XD

Oh btw! Happy new year to you, all the best wishes!!

This is so cute, honey! I definitely want to check them out now! :giggle: I'd have to say my favorite is Izumi. Darn you silver-haired anime dudes! :heart: You've really come a long way and this picture shows it. Not only is the fact that it's a group picture amazing, because groups are hard to do, but the coloring and shading...it's lovely. :iconmonkeyloveplz: It's gorgeous! You did so well with the poses, too. Seriously...an amazing job! :iconsweethugplz:
