Touhou Danmaku Kagura – an honest review

      Comments Off on Touhou Danmaku Kagura – an honest review

…by someone who is playing the game! This is a review I started writing yesterday. I just felt like talking more in-depth about this long-awaited Touhou game on Tiramisu Cowboy! Touhou Danmaku Kagura (in short, DanKagu) is a mobile rhythm game developed and published by Unknown X (a supergroup consisting of AQUASTYLE, DeNA, and xeen). Like a lot of other… Read more »

Kochuuten – pre-release commentary

      Comments Off on Kochuuten – pre-release commentary

Before starting, I want to tell you that this post is divided into two parts. The first one is a rant about how I am disappointed that a certain theme is not in the album, and you are free to skip it (I admit myself it’s pretty stupid), the second one is the proper analysis. Prepare yourself, because it’s a… Read more »

How I do evaluate BUTAOTOME albums + upcoming reviews

      Comments Off on How I do evaluate BUTAOTOME albums + upcoming reviews

After losing my soul on Touhou Cannonball’s latest event (there is a new Pig instrumental, woohoo!), and dissing on the newly released Touhou Lost Word because it doesn’t work on my phone as well as 50 android emulators and most of its music is not new/made for the game (the BUTAOTOME tracks are basically random Nekokenban songs), I finally have… Read more »

My feelings about Paprika’s goodbye and a pre-release commentary of Shoujo Rengoku 5

So, my original plan was a plain Shoujo Rengoku 5 commentary in the similar vein of the one I wrote for Ese Souretsu Shinan. But a piece of sad news overshadowed the new albums. Paprika will leave BUTAOTOME this year. You can read her translated message about this here. It’s news that greatly shocked me, and I’m still shocked now…. Read more »

Ese Souretsu Shinan: pre-release comments

      Comments Off on Ese Souretsu Shinan: pre-release comments

A post I just wanted to write. I’m very hyped about this album, and I think the last time I was genuinely excited about a BUTAOTOME vocal release was with Trauma Recorder. Or Daihinmin. Anyway! So, why am I so excited about Ese Souretsu Shinan? Well, because BUTAOTOME VIOLET DETECTOR IS REAL, the curse has ended, yahoo!!!!11 Okay, there are… Read more »

Romaji pickiness – trying to fix mistakes

      Comments Off on Romaji pickiness – trying to fix mistakes

I’m back from my holiday! I bring you Munmun Manman’s full lyrics page thanks to Jordi and now I can finally work on some stuff I missed! Today I want to talk about romanized titles on non-Japanese shops. Now that BUTAOTOME’s Touhou discography is on iTunes and Google Play, we can read some “official” romanizations for their music. I always… Read more »

[Discussion/rant?] The Music Game Best and compilation contributions

      Comments Off on [Discussion/rant?] The Music Game Best and compilation contributions

A random post I got the idea some nights ago while sleeping. The C93 releases are officially out! This time I ordered my copies through the usual proxy service and I’ll publish lyrics/other info once they arrive at my house. You won’t have to wait too much for the review. But here we are talking about the least important of… Read more »

2016/2017 live stats

      Comments Off on 2016/2017 live stats

Why people are interested on setlists? I think they are a way for hardcore fans to keep an eye to the activity of their favourite artists, outside of the usual “listen the music, analyze it, discuss it, find something to do with their work while still respecting it”. Or for simple curious people, who want to know what to expect… Read more »
