■ You may use a strip up to 5 colors

At the beginning of the second song "Tanabata-like", I think you have lyrics of "strip of five colors". This is derived from the fact that his team was using a strip of five colors blue (green), red, yellow, white, purple (black) in the Tanabata China. It is a symbol of the five elements that composition heaven and earth, the five colors represent the universe itself. Specifically,

Blue: wood, east Hull Hitoshi
Red: fire, south, summer, Rei
· Yellow: Sat, center, midsummer Singh
White: gold, west, autumn, righteousness
Purple: water, north, winter, Satoshi

And it is with. Orange and pink is all well and good, colorful, but when know why neat you have these, and use the other colors I will be closed mind.
