  1. Cannonball and Dankagu has proven it needs a serious effort and strategy to run a gacha game with recent situations, i have very little hope for Arcadia
  2. composition? you mean the art theory composition? or you were looking for a setting like gou said? i'd say keep it simple; thirds, triangle, symmetry placement (not perfectly symmetrical, only where the character standing) golden ratio or diagonal thingy or root3 or golden triangle is way too complicated
  3. didnt realize Tenyuhuang made the soundtrack for the disappearing of gensokyo RD really likes Kosuzu theme, iirc there's like 4 arrangements from him??? me like too
  4. when i see this round tracklist 22: Nami Haven - Rough Sea (Blacklolita Remix) Tenyu? Tenyuhuang? been a while since i heard that name, although this is a remix by other person. how do i start this ngl but this feel repetitive for me, the slow part feels really slow relative to the real time. the middle upbeat part is kinda nice though, im not liking the quick pause thing though. and then at the very end, the climax, it feels too crowded eh aint that bad, the infamous me and EDM relationship 6.5/10 23: Diao ye zong - The beautiful world Diao ye zong suffers the same condition as Demetori for me (but slightly worse). although this mostly applies only for instrumentals and merami vocal. if it's nayuta or kushi, i still like them. Diao ye zong mainly focused on the storytelling, some of the lyric might feel a bit forced into the music. while quite a lot of people like the storytelling, i personally prefer stories to be told vague or even purely by instrumental and mood, it leaves the audience to fill in the gap with their own imagination. my favorite part is at the 6:00 7/10 24: Meng Shi - U.N. Owen was Her? a track from 2005!? rare stuff!! who the heck is Meng Shi, "孟世" is read Mōse the string was quite loud in my first listen but then it got better in later replaying, idk what happened. after a lot of listening, i cant find any holes other than my grudges to U.N Owen it's perfect 8.5/10 ...rare? it's still available in bandcamp yes still rare, quite incredible a doujin track from that age to hold that long. hmm sus hat and even peppy liked it holyshit
  5. i havent even had the chance to play the game, i wanted it sooo baadd again, system not supported rhythm game is my thing, and if you know me i listen to music a lot
  6. Beach House - Space Song that is the first one that came to my mind. i'll also slip in SMT3: Nocturne - track 223 Staff roll any music that has ending credit feel in it, they are calm, full of satisfaction and yet sad. "it's all over, i can finally rest". I always find myself vulnerable to existential crisis. it filled me with curiosity and despair. those music is me longing for the suitable end. oh for touhou music, Eternal Shrine Maiden. it's not a staff roll theme, but it has the vibes. this one has determination and acceptance feel in it. curiosity and determination goes along together, so does despair and acceptance. eternity, forever, infinite.. im really scared of those words (back to existential crisis). dedicating your entire life for one goal. it is very plausible, yet also sad, you basically sacrificed yourself. whoa a deep talk
  7. 19: Water Color Melody. - M.E.P.H.I.S.T.O. oh Water Color Melody this is a vocalist only circle, you may recognize her from Cinnamon Cinnamon from the 1st round. the arranger and everything else is a guest. i personally liking the vocal, idk i just imagine this is how Renko sound when singing. she has quite a large vocal range, the character she singing are on spot, it's like she's frustated and doesnt care anymore. i do hear G-Free in the instrumental part, especially the guitar. quite heavily modified. 8.5/10 i really like the singer character. 20: Komeiji Records - Elegant Ice Maiden i didnt expect the kicks, i was expecting piano oriented musik and then! i also didnt expect the FM synth. the main melody sounds like carbon copy, i barely notice any modification other than the added instruments in the back tbh i dont know which one is the good one, the super faithful arrangement or the almost unnoticeable re-arrangement like the previous song. eh 5/10? (i just dont like cirno (and the theme)) why is she so popular i never understand even back when i just started touhou 21: Demetori - Higan Retour ~ View of The River Styx oh have we ever had demetori in the tourney? i feel like they're too famous to be here. although we just had shibayan and diao ye zong previously, but idk, this feels too well known. nowadays i only listen to demetori for my absolute favorite tracks only. everything else they made seems have mushed together into 'demetori music', most likely because my super long exposure with them. it's still a banger though, i can even still recognize all the theme they did. it's just.. my mind goes blank, no think mode. 8/10
  8. aw come on they removed the snare that was the selling point for me this one is softer but the previous one had more impact
  9. time flew so fast 16: Touhou Gengaku Kyo - Demoness of the Underworld according to Japanese mythology, Yomotsu-Shikome is a... hag.. of the underworld sent by Izanami to chase Izanagi. im wondering what that name implies to this track. the album is named after Izanami, so that could mean something. after a bit of research, ohmygod the album is quite a deep rabbithole, it even has a sister album from Izanagi perspective. i think this track is meant to be listened together with whole album. i want this album... wdym the booth.pm is out of stock, WHY! definitely tragic song. it's tragic since i cant seem to get my hands on the remaining tracks it's supposedly a simple track, only consisting 3 instruments; piano, violin and a cello. even though, the arranger seems have given a lot of thought into this track, each note and progression tells a story, you can even feel the emotions. they know what to express, i can clearly understand what they trying to convey. i'd say it's a 10/10 according to the info, all 6 tracks of the album is Mary the Magician, can you believe an album made from a single track? even after hearing the crossfade, they all are not the same to each other, each one is unique. the arranger must really love this track, then i understand why this arrangement is so amazing. 17: ssbbmaster - Where is that Bustling Marketplace ~ Immemorial Marketeers i have to increase volume 200% relative to the previous track, is this one muted or the previous is too loud? although the previous is my usual hearing volume. hmm i feel the brass section is a bit muffled, they are not bold enough. i'd say the same for the percussion at the opening, although they have more intensity in later part. i think this a mastering issue, the whole track lacks treble. so yeah i can sense the track wanted an epic boss feel, and it's definitely has acquired it 8/10 the flute never came back. 18: S.S.H. & Aether - Shanghai Scarlet Teahouse hmm i feel this one is a bit more hectic rock synth? i mean they've made rock synth before yeah but i usually listen to S.S.H for their heavier stuff. i think this track is from their first touhou album. the build up is quite amazing and i love the guitar riff. is it me or there's a large amount of Shanghai Teahouse arranges that use synth? im just a bit annoyed with rap, it's so sudden and caught me off guard the vocal itself reminds me of Roughsketch, they probably has connection but i cant seem to find any mentions in their site and wiki. 7.5/10
  10. wait what holyshit there's 2nd page so yeah i wrote that above in 2 nights the first night burnt my head the 2nd night i do proofreading and some extra since you like tanks cyborg? mech? armor? you can get quite quboid with all those 3 also i forgot to say this but you can find me easily in touhou discord, especially moriya.
  11. ok so some explanation has the same content in some area. but i can't just put everything at once. so you will see some repetition in my explanation. 1st batch 2nd batch
  12. CAUTION DENSELY PACKED POST you got a drawing tablet? well yea i know someone skilled enough to use only mouse, but drawing tablet makes a huge difference. not to be confused with graphic tablet, yeah it's better than drawing tablet but only so slightly. ok so to the advices Mindset advices: Basics, construction and theories advices my advice for now copy someone, your favorite artist probably do a breakdown of their drawing i have a video for that. i think this the best way to learn hey give the man a break looking to an undressed woman is taboo back then- even now it's still taboo! that's what happened if you dont have references. keep the hair simple, abandon individual strands, group them together overdetailing is something you want to avoid all the time 5th probably the nicest, smooth and simple, just the highlight too much. also my edit
  13. my excuse is that i forgot 13: Unlucky Morpheus - Feast the Night Away 14: Yukari - Palace of the Earth Spirits 15. A-One - Moondust (DJ Command Remix)
  14. Recently stumbled to this album from Studio Nenem https://en.touhouwiki.net/wiki/靈異伝M01 All 16 of the arrangements are from th01 tracks. It's all instrumental tracks, the genre seems to be mix of Traditional and Modern. Ranging from Modern Orchestra, Swing, Chiptune and DnB, and even mix of Traditional and House. Crossfade for reference: https://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm17621641
  15. sorry for the late reply i've been quite busy in past few days 10: ARA - Area 4 (Capital City of Flowers in the Sky) eyy i've played this game, the soundtracks are actually bops the tempo is faster than what i usually expect from Capital City of Flowers in the Sky, still works, i still feel the ambient in it. 7/10 11: Kommisar - Maple Dream eyy Kommisar, been a while since i heard that name. and an 8-bit arrange, while it still count in chiptune, it has whole different feel yeah? tbh i feel the opening is quite bland, idk why, everything seems in check but i just doesn't feel like it. the main part is amazing tho wait what happened in 3:05? the transition feels a bit sudden. hmm yeah i prefer the earlier parts. 7.5/10 why sudden increase in chiptune 12: Shibayan Records - MyonMyonMyonMyonMyonMyon! the 6 myon sorry but i hafta give you a bit of rarity penalty, i highly doubt any 2hu enthusiast haven't heard about this iconic song. hmmmmm idk what to comment i feel like since everyone knows about this song, everyone share the same feeling. it's also quite obvious. yeah it's a bop 3Love Shibayan but despite how many times i heard this arrange i can't point out where the original is??? is it because me not really liking youmu theme?? 8/10
  16. it's getting hotter time to repost the track i love sooo much
  17. 7. dBu Music - Unhuman Variations there's a lot of variations yeah it sounds ok, the mixing and arrangement is nice, it's just i have mixed feeling with combining 8-bit and hi-res(?) sounds, it feels out of place i usually prefer 8-bits or it's variations to be faithful to it's own genre. eh it's decent, still enjoyable 6.9/10 8. Komeji Records - Youmu at the End this one has quite a few to comment about proof DAW cant do everything, at least not as easy as everyone thinks. it does sound digital lmao, unlike electro or any digital based genre, orchestral is supposed to be realistic. there's a saying in digital art community; "Imperfections is digital perfection" there's not enough dynamism happening with the orchestration, everything sounds perfectly arranged, the instrument velocity is constant in repeating melodies and so on, you get what i mean. 2:55 i thought it was ended, that transition ant feel right. the pacing totaally suggest it's ending, i don't understand what it's trying to convey with bringing it back up. 5:16 wait again, that's definitely another track. does submitting a whole album in tourney counts as one song? 4/10? i feel that's too low but then also didnt enjoy this track as much, 4.5/10 i hope she (komeiji records) doesn't smite me or anything, i've seen her in few discord servers. eh 2013 track, she definitely gotten better overtime 9. ZYTOKINE - The Illness Approaching You - Edelritter Remix why sussy came twice in the first three rounds 2:05 everyone seems having issue with that part, yeah, me neither don't understand what's that for. everything else sounds nice except whatever that thing was. if only the remixer had slightly more self control. 6/10
  18. are you perhaps sharing the same discord servers as me? or even spying on me? ? ive been sharing this thing around everywhere, well... except here... i was about to post but then Nocti released her album, and then someone also submitted automata girl in the tourney, so i keep it in case they also submitted this one. unrelated but one of my youtube sub started to upload Reset All Controlles out of nowhere when i just learned about that circle, now I feel like the world revolves around me. anywaay i'll share what ive been listening to so yeah i've been hunting down Hisouten arranges by Hisouten i mean is Heaven of Scarlet Perception, SWR recurring themes, not Hisoutensoku theme they are different. that basically include everything in SWR except Iku and Tenshi theme. i made a playlist for that https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBobLKXql6t_Xb4bXgYhcfFH_pPoJQRF1 and another playlist for Dancing Water Spray family since they quite different but still the same https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBobLKXql6t8sNxiyrWx-nvv-Fpj4WizF so yeah here's my highlight from those playlist here's not a music discovery but a circle discovery another packed post
  19. this a hard round 1. Rolling Contact - Lunatic Vengeance For some reason i quite liking this, the Touhou also surprisingly thick for Amane in this one. sadly there's just a bit too many samples for my liking, and some of those sudden breaks feels a bit forced in. 7/10 yeah seems ok 2.Ottori Sound Works - Myon Rag Fever Ohshit ragtime uh.. the instrument choice is kinda buggin me. while everything else is nice, the brass?guitar? sounds clipped and rough, i guess they were trying to get a retro feel but yeah no. the cowbell is definitely the savior in this one. 7/10 3. Nostalgic Blood of the East ~ Old World that percussion is definitely something, probably the star of this track the mixing and stuff is pretty nice, everything sounds neat, it doesn't feel too complicated while maintaining the upbeat feel. also 7/10 idk why they all the same rating they all aint bad but also not great
  20. 1. PHOENIX Project - The Young Descendant of Tepes oh nice Phoenix Project, i dont understand why they are so underrated. Dark Phoenix is popular but why not Phoenix Project? they literally the same person (and extra). it does feel "foreboding" with the percussion and such even more with stage 6 themes always had those kind of feelings in them i do like the slow part also giving small breaks from the intensity 8/10 2. Akatsuki Records - Infinite ...Graduation? Gradation? Gradation makes more sense since Japanese often associate gradation with sky gradation, y'know.. Chimata. unless this song is about keine lmao. i finally found the word to describe akatsuki records, and that is: crowded. sometimes i feel there's too much going on. that's why i only liked their ballad. after much listening, some part of it actually grew into me but then another part come in and yeah maybe no 7/10 ? FUCK NOW MY RECOMMENDATION IS FILLED WITH STACK HELP bring baack my rare aarranges 3. Automata Girl - Cinnamon, Cinnamon!! ohman i was very very close to submitting this one, or at least another song from Automata Girl. glad someone else did it, or it was me all along? (i totally forgot what i submitted) Electro Swing is truly this decade genre, sweet evolution from it's popularity century ago. the voice is quite fitting for city girl vibe. talk about city vibe, that is mostly what the circle's style is. sad how this album never released, only this song managed to get out. the circle is quite short lived, the arranger died out due to burnout. guess he cant handle the exponentially increasing quality and demand of his work. 9/10
  21. NEW NOCTI ALBUM JUST DROPPED i have to abandon the things i wanted to share and post this instead my favs are Ghost Next Door, All Nighter and Food Court Menace
