Obake no Sakurazome – review

      No Comments on Obake no Sakurazome – review

“Every day is like a continuation of a dreamIf I can have a bit of fun, that’s all that matters” Yeeee, welcome back to the review corner!!! I have to say, when this book was first announced, I wasn’t particularly excited. A Yuyuko-centered story reminded me of Epitaph, an album I really don’t hold in high regard. The statement of… Read more »

Acoustic Gakkyokushuu (1 and 2) – review

This article was originally meant to be a celebration for the 10th anniversary of a certain thing. However, as I was writing it, I decided to put some things in a separated post that I will publish next week. So, for today, you are going to get a pure and simple review, that rescues some old notes and drafts I… Read more »

      Comments Off on September 2023 doujin packages pseudo-review

Ooooh, welcome back to this relaxed review corner! This time we have the stuff I ordered during C102 and the Kyoto Hifuu event… For the Kyoto Hifuu stuff, I asked an extremely good and honest soul (the same one I asked last year for that same event) to buy things for me. So, let’s start with the Buta stuff! First… Read more »

“Was ignorance my sin? Is this my punishment?Everything goes according to the heart of godsIt’s a childlike play” After a whole month of waiting, I finally have my copy of Oshira Asobi, BUTAOTOME’s C102 release! This time we have a book with a song. Ane mentioned that they wanted to do something like that at least once… and it was… Read more »

August 2023 doujin package pseudo-review

      Comments Off on August 2023 doujin package pseudo-review

I originally wanted to write this one along with the C102 package review. However, it still hasn’t arrived, so here we have this new post. Please send positive thoughts, so maybe it will be recovered from the abyss. Or maybe I should do a FELT reference that is not Lost in the Abyss. So, the contents of this package come… Read more »

Billiards – 10th anniversary review

      Comments Off on Billiards – 10th anniversary review

Hey, it’s time for a new review! While Billiards is not an album in the same, ultimate tier as Chess or Kyou ga Saigo no Ichinichi, I decided to write this review because a particular song deserves something for its 10th anniversary. Colorfully striking. BUTAOTOME’s third original album. Since this is an original album (and it’s not as meaningful as… Read more »

Majotachi no Ongakushitsu – re-review

      Comments Off on Majotachi no Ongakushitsu – re-review

So, I was in the mood of writing something, but didn’t have any idea. Then I checked my drafts and recalled that I wanted to re-review this album after Itanshinmon, so here we are. The Kikeijuu trilogy re-reviews are coming next, and hopefully one of them will be released before Comiket lol Although maybe I should write a Billiards review… Read more »

May-June 2023 doujin packages pseudo-review

      Comments Off on May-June 2023 doujin packages pseudo-review

Decided to make this an irregular series, because why not. As usual, being a BUTAOTOME website, I’ll only talk about the Pig-related content, but I’ll dedicate a couple of extra paragraphs to other stuff. I got most of the stuff thanks to my friend Jaefine from Japan. She also handled some stuff from last year that was never shipped before… Read more »

BUTABEST 5 – review

      Comments Off on BUTABEST 5 – review

Oh, welcome back to the review corner! It’s earlier than usual because, for Reitaisai 20, BUTAOTOME won’t bring anything that’s actually new. Another Best of? For real? I started writing this review on April 14, as soon as I spotted the album in the shops. It’s a best of with no new content*. I can easily review it now, before… Read more »

Best – review

      Comments Off on Best – review

Better late than never, I guess! This review will have a format similar to the one I used for my scrapped Ura Best review. Beyond Touhou Touhou is not everything that revolves around the doujin world. Or the world in general. We are all humans, and our interests shift over time. Of course, sometimes they just remain the same. In… Read more »
