This is a series of blog posts Comp published on the old BUTAOTOME blog. It was something I wanted to translate for years, and well… better later than ever?

Buon COMPleanno!!!11 to my favorite polar bear and composer! It’s time for the final part of my pseudo-analysis of BUTAOTOME’s lyrics… and we end with the one who pretty much wrote 80%* of the entire vocal catalog: Comp! *not actually calculated, I just put a large percentage number. btw, I have 940 files tagged as BUTAOTOME in my music library,… Read more »

An old interview with Comp from the magazines I bought specifically for BUTAOTOME articles. Now it has been finally translated!

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 »
Happy birthday to the best polar bear around! In the last months I wasn’t a big fan of BUTAOTOME’s latest efforts. However, there is one thing I want to remind myself and all of you. Comp is the creative mind behind pretty much all my favourite songs, the singles we all know and love, and basically BUTAOTOME’s entire original catalogue…. Read more »
