Smile is a character first appearing in pop'n music 4. Moving place to place before joining the Deuil, he is made out to be a ghastly, troublesome spirit using his invisibility to his advantage. Not so lucky is Smile's susceptibility to attacks from birds, one resulting in eye trauma.[3]


Smile represents the invisible man archetype solidified by Griffin from the 1897 horror fiction novel The Invisible Man; transparent and clad only in bandages under a trenchcoat. His livid skin, beady red eyes and untamed, blue hair were recreated with makeup.[3] Some other cover-ups include ear piercings, boots and gloves.

 Ash's getting something to eat at the store,
 and I'm pretty sure Yuli's on a walk.
Hii hii hii...

Hii hii hii.
 The Deuil's bass,
 I'm Smile.

 Thought my transparency'd keep you from sniffin' me out -
 I'm dressed like this so I can be in sight.
 I've been waiting for you.
 Next time we meet, I hope you'll be able
 to see me. Hii hii hii...

 Ooops. Wouldn't you like a hint
 for all your hard work?
 Yuli's in a western-looking house
 and Ash's at the butcher shop.
 You think I'm messin' around? Do you?

Smile 4 Profile ステージ上ではクールだけど『Deuil』のメンバー一ひょうきん者な透明人間さ。


He might look cool on-stage, but he's a jokester invisible man and a member of the "Deuil."

Matter of fact, he's got a habit of humming a strange song to himself while his fans can't see him.

Smile 12 Profile 長い長い夢から覚めたら、あれれ?頭から葉っぱが!


The moment he opened his eyes from a long, long dream... wha? There's leaves comin' outta my head!

Don't look like this potion's turning me back to normal...

『Deuil』の3人目です。最初に聞いたホラーはちゃんとホラーな感じでしたが…出来上がったら180度方向の違う曲になっていて慌てましたよ。とりあえず女の子やヘビーポッパーじゃない人でも簡単に見つけてもらえるようにとお願いして、一番簡単な条件設定にしてもらいました。まだ見ていない方は見て下さいね。 The third member of the "Deuil." The second I heard "horror," I went on to make it in a way that it'd strike people as horror... but freaked out when the song had turned 180 degrees the other way once it was set to go. For the time being I was a girl not really a heavy Popper, but I got what I wanted. I had it down with the simplest setup I got. If you hadn't seen it yet, please take a look.

This was the perfect opportunity to bring him back at last - so I did it in style! I thought up leaves, obake... and all kinds of stuff I could go on about, but this suited him better so we just went with that.

With how popular Halloween's been, I see a kid in a costume here and there - a witch, a princess... little kids' dress-ups are just the cutest things!
How I wish there'd been Halloween when I was little~
I was making animations for a stage that didn't have a song yet - then, having heard what's in the song, a teeny obake ready to burst out seemed just perfect! It was.

After a long time since his last appearance, Smile is here.

Tons of votes in the poll went to his revival - the Pop'n character that made them the happiest. A thousand thanks to you all!

A lot of them demanded for him to "be in a cool costume," so Yuli along with Smile and his bass guitar in their clothing from his Lapistoria animations in a very éclale-like look were all crammed in together. But with everyone throwing me their requests, I was wondering if it'll be cool enough.
And if you're asking what that skeleton's doing on his head - I just had to make Smile go out after all this time in style. I went through hats, caps, accessories and other objects, and the skeleton suited him the best - everything before just looked bad after it...
If I had added it later, I'd have the type down - but Smile would've went on without it, and I put his pace in the animations first and foremost.
The music was a side-by-side production by the much-hyped Akhuta, which I put Smile with while having no idea how the song'll go. What Akhuta put out for Smile was so much different than what I had been rooting for, making me surprised!

I was confused as to why it couldn't come with those big illustrations... we were trying our best - how'd we catch onto Smile right there?
I'd really appreciate if you all got a kick out of the Pop'n animations!
