First of all, MY C96 ALBUMS FINALLY ARRIVED!!! Wohoooo!! I’ve already updated all the pages, and all the lyrics from Goku are up, as well as the Black Sunflower lyrics. I’ve also slightly revised Ranko’s and Paprika’s reviews, and Ranko’s comments have been added on each song’s page. I’m now working on the review, but I will leave a small spoiler here: I’m very happy for these albums. Look forward to it!
Now to a good bunch of news from the World of BUTAOTOME!
Autumnal Reitaisai 6 release
BUTAOTOME will bring a new release at Autumnal Reitaisai 6, on October 6th. It hasn’t been officially announced, but it’s already up on some doujin shops like Toranoana and Akiba-Hobby. It’s the fourth album of the ButaBest series! This time it covers all the vocal albums from FREAKS to Shoujo Rengoku 4/Daifugou, including sachlich.

Autumnal Reitaisai 6 guest stuff
BUTAOTOME will also have a guest appearance in another album to be released on Autumnal Reitaisai: the chapter number ??? of the “albums with 30 covers and remixes of the same song” saga. This time it’s the turn of Cirno’s Perfect Math Class by IOSYS! Here is the official website, with a Youtube XFD and also separated samples for each cover/remix. The Pig’s take on the famous Cirno meme is the 8th track of the album.
We have two new lives being added into the BUTAOTOME schedule! They are both festival-like events with a bunch of other artists.
The first is a very surprising one: Flowering Night 2020. One of the historical Touhou live events will come back next year! July 4th at Kawasaki Club Citta.
The second one is much closer in time, and it’s called “THE★WORLD ~Oshi ga toutokute shindoi Halloween partyyy~” (long name is long). October 21 at Veats Shibuya. It’s the first live unrelated to Touhou of the year
(unless they cancel this one too)! Tickets will start being sold from September 30 on livepocket!
Touhou Freaks 2 setlist
1. Gensou no Satellite
2. Hakanaki Mono Ningen
4. Momoiro Fivestar
6. Fuwari Kakusei
8. Haru no Yuki
10. Kakoinaki yo wa Ichigo no Tsukikage
If you are interested on the setlist of the other circles, you can read them on THBWiki (this is where I usually put extra Touhou stuff that doesn’t have a place here). And yeah, Makkachin Kikaku played a couple of original songs. I’m not sure if they should be considered geniuses or deserve hate for this.
Touhou Station livestream
There will be a Touhou Station livestream on Friday, and Comp will be a guest! This streaming will be dedicated to the Chinese Touhou scene, so I recommend to check it out because there is some good stuff!
Aaaaand that’s all for this week!
