My mind is going pretty crazy trying to think of a remix that I heard about a year ago.  It was a silly little remix where the vast majority of the music were random sound effects like whistles, Vaccuums (I think), meows (?). Not quite sure.  I'm pretty sure it was also a part of a compilation like the house sets, but I've already double checked all song in the house sets...

Help!  :V

You're probably thinking of this. I think a couple of other house set tracks use a similar sound (Phantom Ensemble and Futatsuiwa From Sado, I think?), so you could check those out as well.
I made a PADHerder. It's probably out of date though.

I love that arrange so much. I always do a double-take on the far-away-door-shutting sound.

No... That's not it.  It's a lot more goofier and made up of more random sounds (Like 95% of it).  I really appreciate you for helping though. :3 I'll search for it when I get back from work as well.  I'll post it if I ever find it, too.  :ohdear:

Then it's almost certainly this remix of Phantom Ensemble, from the Perfect Cherry Blossom house set.

I did confirm earlier that Phantom Ensemble and Futatsuiwa From Sado were in fact the other two I was thinking of, although from half-listening to them at work it seemed like they were much lighter on sound effects than Lunate Elf. Wouldn't hurt to give both of them a listen, anyway.

On a related note, who should I be attributing those house sets to in my MP3 player? That's been an ongoing problem with my music library. They're not well labelled on Youtube unfortunately.

Subjective choice of music remains subjective. Pick the one which you think makes you perform better.

So, do kappa really kill people in the touhouverse? The print media seems to point at this but the manga make them seem so cute, and from what i have heard, the subject is brought up even in 13.5, so, i am really confused and concerned.

Kappa in folklore are said to love eating shirikodamas, a mythical organ located inside a human's anus that is said to contain their soul. Removing it klls the person.

Nitori has danmaku that references shirikodamas in Double Spoiler, and SPOILER FOR 13.5
Spoiler:
when encountering the whole village frozen with Kokoro's masks in 13.5
she comments on how easy it'd be to collect everyone's shirikodamas, but that's all there is to it.

Akyuu states in her monologue in PmISS that nobody really gets killed by youkai in Gensokyou nowadays; therefore I"d assume that kappa are not colecting this delicacy for consumption anymore... at least not from the Human Village. Yukari does makes some ominous comments about youkai getting their stomachs filled with a supply from somewhere in WaHH.

Kappa invent a lot of useless things, like mist capturing nets and steam powered robot ballons that can achieve nirvana. Just because they made it doesn't really mean that they use it. 'Sides, it's part of their nature to crave for the balls; maybe it's a way to remember people what kappa will do to you. Youkai in general need to remind people that they should be feared, after all.

And who knows. Maybe they are using it. Just not on the Human Village humans.

Despite what fandom would make one believe, Marisa doesn't lie about everything all the time. Unless there's a specific reason to believe that she's lying (some canon source stating clearly that the shirikodama-extracting thingy doesn't exist, for example), there's no reason to not take the statement at face value.

'Sides, the Shiriko Device is described as "unnecessary" by Akyuu, which could mean that they don't really use it (or that they are naturally good enough at extracting them balls, so the device is redundant).

In Wild And Horned Hermit Reimu seems to be desperately searching for an excuse to go ape on the Kappa, but she doesn't come up with anything and has to leave them alone
Spoiler:
or not, based on Kasen's farcical web of lies
. If they were regularly ass-killing random humans she probably wouldn't have had to find another reason to exterminate them.

Agreed. If we're going to reason that we have no reason to assume Marisa is lying about any given thing she says that should count triple for Shikieki,

I'll just return a bit to the kappa device to say, it's coul be that the Akyuu learned about it during on of the kappa bazars that she mentions. We don't really know the extent of Marisa's influence in the writting of the book, after all.

Back to Marisa's lying... like Akyuu's mistakes, misinformations and exaggerations, it's pretty much obvious when it happens. When I made my "Marisa doesn't lie all the time", it was more in response to Setsakura implying that SoPM is unreliable solely because of its authors; Marisa isn't really show to lie about descriptions of danmaku and spell cards, for instance, so why would she lie about a list of items that the kappa have? Doesn't make sense, and nothing points towards that.

Sounds like standard embellishment to me. She potentially exaggerates the danger some of the tamer creatures pose so that they, and by extension she and her book, seem more exciting. There's nothing to suggest that she's definitely lying, but that doesn't seem terribly unlikely for a lie given that she is known to do so sometimes.

That isn't to say Kappa are totally harmless, given that
Spoiler:
they could have easily hurt someone with their landslide shenanigans in Wild And Horned Hermit unless they took some safety precautions we didn't hear about
, but I don't think modern Gensokyo Kappa seem to be so much malicious as sometimes careless.

Either that or Kanako is bossing them into rushing designs out without doing safety testing. :V

The kappa should form a worker's union. :getdown:

I don't believe it is standard embellishment, as Kappa are known to do it. Hopeless Masquerade pretty much confirms this, if the other works and games wasn't enough proof.

There may be slight exaggerations, but I would not say by much. The threat chart is listed for normal humans. That book is not even publicly available until PMiSS, so it is not about making the book more exciting. It is about warning humans the dangers that they could face.
As for giving theories and the like, you know when she does it, since she pretty much tells you so.

Maliciousness and carelessness are no different when it comes to endangering humans. The end result is the same, threat to humans. That is mainly what the threat level chart is about. It isn't that some characters are malicious, if they were, the said human would be dead. It is that being around them poses danger.

The main issue with the threat charts are that it's Akyuu's analysis from her knowledge. It seems mostly accurate for sure, but when you get to the Chireiden group in particular, Akyuu rates at least the Komeiji sisters a bit higher than she should, because nobody has been in contact with them for very long. Her descriptions of Satori and Koishi are based on previous knowledge of former hell, the satori, and how they were hated. It's the uninformed narrator thing going on, even if for the most part it's accurate.

Satori, I am unsure why it is very high, but Koishi's threat is unknown. Satori's threat level may be related to her location.
