BUTAOTOME’s summer release is done, and the CDs have been sent to print! Please remember that it’s gonna be a Best of album focused on tracks from 2010-2011, so don’t expect anything new or really exciting! Cover and tracklist will be revealed very soon (perhaps a shop will publish them early).
Announce the tracklist already, I need to know if there is Kagerenbo.
On an unrelated note, Ane has been posting some art on Twitter/Pixiv, including some of the new Touhou girls introduced in Unconnected Marketeers (Tsukasa, Momoyo) and an amazing illustration for the song Nawatobi. This one was a commission she received on her skeb. The previous post here was a commentary about that!

BEMANI 2021 Manatsu no Utagassen 5ban Shoubu
This new event is going from July 29 to September 30 in the BEMANI series of arcade rhythm games, and features an impressive lineup of vocalists who did works for those games, including our Ranko. They are split in two teams. (Ranko is Team Blue), and every week, there is a match between two new original songs with vocalists of the respective teams. By playing the supported Bemanis, you get “yell points”. You use the yell points for the songs, and by spending enough of them, you can unlock it on its respective games. The team who will win the overall competition will have a new song.
Luckily for us, this week’s Team Blue song is the one with Ranko! Itetsu no Pride (鋳鉄の檻, don’t ask me why it reads in this way) is composed by Yyva of the BEMANI Sound Team and features Ranko, Kanako Kotera and SARAH! This song is playable on GITADORA, DanceDanceRevolution, NOSTALGIA and pop’n music, and can be unlocked only for the duration of the event.
