Touhou Doujin Music Part 3 – Sunshine Creation 42

Sunshine Creation, an all-around doujin festival that happens four times a year, held its forty-second installment on February 8th. This convention saw more Touhou album releases than last month’s Comic Treasure, so let’s get to it. As always, click the banners above each of the album descriptions to go to the circle’s site for the specific album. A lot of the time, you’ll be able to listen to crossfade demos, or even download sample tracks. As always, the handle names are difficult to translate properly. Humor me on that. Most of the song names were easy enough though.

The participating circles are as follows(click the banner to go to their website):

=NeutraL= released three albums during Sunshine Creation 42, and the first one is a Reimu/Marisa dedicated one, containing metal arrangements of pretty much every single one of their theme songs. Seriously, this is amazing stuff. I think I’m a metal fan now(or at least a KOUICHI fan). I’d never even heard most of these songs(a lot came from the old PC-98 games) but they’re still great.

yumesenya_large

=NeutraL=’s second album, Yumesenya, is a more general arrangement album. They’re not high-speed or anything, but there are pretty nice guitar/techno/rock remixes. Track 6 is really weird though. I personally liked REDxBLACK better, but this one has more variety. So if you’re not into constant metal, here’s your thing.

affectamind_large

Affect a mind is another general arrange album, but it seems to focus on songs from the CDs that ZUN released – like, the songs that were never actually in Touhou – as well as some older songs. Some songs are fast-paced, some are simply jolly, and some are interesting. Track 9 is particularly beautiful. Pianoes + strings = great, usually. There’s a pretty wide assortment of instruments, but some of them just turned me off. :/

Liz Triangle and Like a rabbit teamed up to create an 11-track arrange album of all vocal songs. In general, the songs sound pretty J-Pop-ish, but I didn’t really like it. That’s not to say the album’s not good, but I don’t really like what they did to some of the songs. Or rather, they chose weird songs to put words to, like Cinderella Cage. Anyway, lily-an, Ryou, Tsukasa, and Tattsuu are the vocalists this time around, so if any of those catch your eye, then go for it!

This team I’ve never heard of, calling themselves Reine Musik(or 街角麻婆豆, Machikado Asababamame) released an album that is literally fifty-four little melodies that sound just like the ones they play when the train leaves/arrives at the station. At least, in Japan.

cherryfantasia_large

The Yumeiro Project is a relatively new doujin circle focusing on original and arrange music. In particular, their SC42 release was a Touhou 7 arrange album. It’s got a nice orchestral arrangements, faster guitar-rock songs that caught my attention, and even some techno. Track 12 is almost chiptune. Overall, I was pretty impressed. The tunes themselves stick true to the original.

Most of the arrangers here are from other circles, so this is kind of like a big collaboration. The only problem I have with the album is the repetition of Necrofantasia, Paradise ~ Deep Mountain, and Alice’s theme.

A-HEAD released a four-track album that was pretty good, all in all. The first and fourth songs are slower, and the second and third are rock-metal-ish. (They were sitting next to Silver Forest at SC42, so they were feeling a lot of pressure, but I’d say these are pretty good. ^^)
