It’s Paprika’s birthday! She is no longer part of BUTAOTOME, but I just want to celebrate her birthday anyway. I don’t know what she is doing now, but I hope she is fine and that she is happy with it. This time we have mozzarella in carrozza!

It’s the COMPleanno! Comp is, and will always be my favorite doujin composer and Touhou arranger. I love his recognizable pop-rock style, but also how he is prone to experimenting with sounds. Add Ranko’s wonderful voice into the mix and you have a plethora of amazing tracks, a lot of my favorite songs and Touhou arranges of all time.I wish… Read more »
