oh tohou goodness. What’s funny is that I can actually fall asleep to all of these songs. I wish I had the knowledge to make this into a real clock
I keep forgetting to search for this circle when I’m looking for music. And when I somehow land on them, it’s always amazing. check it out.
Oh yea, Aghart101, I love you for posting up touhou songs with the both japanese lyrics and the english translation. Please keep up the good work.
So as I was looking around for some touhou music, I landed on this vocalist. At first I was actually a bit skeptical about this but after hearing more and more. I kept getting drawn into it. So I had to go find more songs from Afterglow. I just love how she can switch from low to high really quick. I would love to hear her sing more ambient trance like beats. I think that’s where her strong points are.
A friend of mine actually asked me this. Of course to most people, this question is pretty tough since they might not like what they want. As for myself, I think I know the answer to this. Even though I’m not a big fan of the character as much but hey… I’m like her. So who is this character you ask? Why it’s none other than Flandre Scarlet.
Who is Flandre Scarlet?
Well according to Zun’s profile on her…
Sister of the Devil
Ability: Destruction of anything and everything
The Extra Boss. Also the Mistress’s younger sister.
She is a vampiric magical girl and has been the Scarlet Devil’s younger sister for about 495 years.
She’s kind of nuts and isn’t usually allowed out of the mansion, but she usually doesn’t try to let herself out.
She really respects her older sister Remilia, but her raw destructive power far exceeds that of her sister’s. Although she is usually docile, her insanity makes it difficult for others to understand her.
When vampires attack humans, they generally try to take their prey alive so that they can suck its blood afterward, but Flandre has always been fed with cooked dishes, so she doesn’t know how to properly attack a human. Whenever she tries to attack a human, she can’t control herself and blows them away without leaving a spot of blood.
Perhaps she can’t tell that her daily meals are made from living humans.
Her meals look like such harmless foodstuffs as cake and tea, after all…”
So Why Flandre?
Well even though she is a bit psychotic and insane, but she does have a calm and quiet side too. (Well as what most doujin circles made her out to be.) But also if you read what Zun wrote on her profile, (hinting at “Although she is usually docile, her insanity makes it difficult for others to understand her”) So I am assuming that she can be normal at most times, but when she goes into her insane mode, then you’re kinda screwed. I ended up choosing her because I can relate to her more easily than any other video game characters.
And why is that?
Lets take a look at some of her profile in Perfect Memento
- Flandre doesn’t have many friends, and even her older sister Remilia is hardly ever with her.
This is true for me as well. I don’t really have that much friends at all. Well I do have friends, but I’m not the popular type. Hell most of my friends are just new people that I have met. I haven’t really had the time to know more about them.
- She apparently rarely, if ever, attends the parties at the mansion.
Same here! I don’t go out and party as much as I should. Even if I do get invited, I just don’t go for some reason.
- Normally she’s locked up in the mansion, but it seems she might actually be a shut-in who stays there willingly.
Maybe I am a shut in? I’m not really locked up in my house, but my parents try to make stay at home at all times when I was younger… I guess it worked. Damn…
- Because she is rarely seen by visitors, there are many mysteries about her.
There are plenty of mysteries about me. If you want to know, why not just ask me up front. If you don’t think I’m being honest, present the Magatama to me and try to break my psyche-locks. (hahaha! Phoenix Wright reference!)
- She also has extreme physical strength.
- Unsurprisingly, all the toys she plays with get broken.
Yep… when I was younger, I would destroy my toys… Oh those poor old TMNT, Power rangers, Gundam… (the list goes on…) toys that I have ever owned…
So I’m going to end this as a question for you (the reader). What Video Game Character Would You Line Yourself Up With? Feel free to leave an answer in the comments.
One more thing… I am not a vampire freak.
FOR YOU TOUHOU MUSIC FANS!
So I been looking for touhou music recently and I happened to land on this artist named Levo Lution. So far it seems like he/she has done more than just touhou music. I saw some Final Fantasy remixes as well. I still need to listen to those too.
Anyways, I have listen to some of his songs and well they actually sound… how do I put this? Well lets just say it’s something more fresh, calming, and a bit relaxing. Unlike Alstroemeria Records (which is also one of my personal favorites circles) Levo Lution seems to put out more of a calmness. I guess it’s just something different from the usual circles I listen to.
Check out Levo Lution
Here’s a list of the other circles that I do follow.
- Alstroemeria Records (How can you not love them?)
- Iosys (Yay for crazy music)
- Sound Online (They can bring out the “vibrant” of their remixes)
- East New Sound (A new group that I just started listening to as well.
- Innocent Key (They don’t always do perverted songs do they?)
- =Netural= (I think they changed their name recently if I’m not mistaken)
I know that there’s a bit more. I’ll list them later.
I know I’m not a good Touhou player, and I did post this a long time ago on my old computer. But I thought I would share it with you all. Laugh at my failure!
