I think one of the fondest BUTAOTOME-related memories I have from this year is the whole live stats making. This year I tried to build them as soon as a new setlist was published. I saw how the original/major songs were above the Touhou songs during the first part of the year. And more importantly, I saw how Mesen, a simple song from a newly released album, managed to rise above everything else, challenging the 2010 hits that will never be abandoned and even getting the first place, sometimes even above the undroppable Gensou no Satellite. The Mesen VS GenSate duel almost became a topic in my community. I even made a couple of memes about it… I was not really fond of the Aun song earlier in the year, but now I admit it has a special spot thanks to my wonderful Scott and these live stats. I thought it would have been cool to see a different song in the number one spot, and even if it ended with a draw I’m still happy!

Special thanks to all the people who posted BUTAOTOME setlists on Twitter, in particular to Ark Lucifead (for being faster than the Butaotome members for posting them) and Comp (who kindly posted one of the non-Japanese setlists when I asked him). Now, to another year full of lives!
