Also, a Nintendo vs. Sega battle in itself hasn't been that big of a deal even since the Mario & Sonic at the Olympics series, but admittedly them both being at Reitaisai is new

I know, that crap is soooo late 90's!

Quote
Also, this being a Nintendo programme, they were actually drinking barley tea from beer bottles throughout.

Do you think Nintendo reps told them "no alcohol on the stream" or was it just a joke that Nintendo seems to have some aversion to alcohol in their games due to their "kid friendly" image?

Memories are coming back to me of when Nintendo censored the blood in Mortal Kombat with sweat drops. Nintendo and censorship, am I right?  :V

As much as I don't trust Sega with any hand in anything Touhou related, I am also uneasy with Nintendo having any hand in it as well. Considering the crap they have been up to lately.

Woah woah woah, are they trying to poison ZUN? Give the man some alcohol!

InB4 mega corps™ buys out ZUN with a lifetime supply of beer! (but nothing too premium of course, their too cheap to do that)  :V

Memories? Nintendo censorship happened very recently and keeps happening.

I wouldn't worry though, it's not like they were going to write a story, they're just using songs.

But was it really barley tea?
At this point, I suspect ZUN to be able to turn any beverage into alcohol when drinking it.

Your right, I mentioned Mortal Kombat because that was probably one of the most famous examples of Nintendo's censorship that pissed off alot of people. I mean, Nintendo has done alot worse since like trying to get a cut of any youtube video's profits that show footage of their games... real underhanded.

... FOR NOW!  :derp:

If Nintendo were to buy out ZUN, then you can kiss your favorite characters drinking alcohol at flower viewing parties goodbye... Nintendo will make them drink cherry blossom tea instead.  :munch:

Licensing a soundtrack to a publisher is nowhere near being bought out. By that logic, music history would've been changed forever when Harmonix bought The Beatles for a video game. Besides, Touhou stuff has been licensed to like eight other arcade games by now, mostly of the rhythm variety. Team Shanghai Alice controls the license and doesn't give up the entire series just when giving the rights to a few songs.

EDIT: Also, I'm pretty dang hyped for September Pumpkin, because despite my "eh" feelings towards the LoLK soundtrack, I did love that one.

And pretty much every case of "censorship" has been on the US side of Nintendo, which had nothing to do with this Band Brothers thing.

Nintendo of Japan cares less about censorship.

It's a 50/50 chance when it gets released that it will take on a life of its own or be dead on arrival.  :V

Or it just never gets released and we won't ever be able to know if it's good or bad.

Edit: What am I saying? This is ZUN we're talking about, of course it's going to be good.

Ooooh, this new CD's release is gonna be super soon, isn't it? Hype be gotten!  :D

I personally have the feeling that "Beyond Planck in an Instant" and "Schrödinger's Bakeneko" will be new leitmotifs for Renko and Merry, respectively. They're even right next to each other on the track list!  :3

Though it should be noted that Nintendo of Japan has, for the most part, no issues with legal aged characters drinking alcohol in their games, as evident of the videos I posted here a while back.

Feel like bringing it up again in case people jump to conclusions...

Well, TV and video games ARE different types of media, they'd have somewhat different rules, really.

Beyond Planck in an Instant is a perfect marriage of Touhou and scifi. It gives me some wild images about visionaries designing the future in a timelapse spanning centuries. Worth getting the album for this track alone.

Pacing-wise, the first track sets you off on the right foot, and the last three tracks are an excellent climax.
The album is really consistent in style, something that's always been ZUN's strong point. You can definitely date this as "2016-sounding" Touhou music. I mean besides the prominence of synth sounds, there's something different about the overall mixing too. It's all noticeably more... fluid than before.

Warmly waiting for the story translation.

Thank you Gilde ;w;

This is definitely an interesting story. Even though it isn't as action packed as some of the previous ones, it gives a lot of insight into the nature of boundaries, youkai, and alternate dimensions like Gensokyo. We can also see Merry getting a better grip on her abilities, and slowy getting closer and closer to becoming....?

This is super exciting >w<

I don't really understand what they mean when they're talking about youkai existing as different types of particles though. Could someone give their intrepertation of it?

I hope ZUN pulls a Trojan Green Asteroid/Neotraditionalism and releases something else this summer. I'm excited to see where things go with the sealing club now.

As for the music, I'm not fond of the remixed tracks, but the new ones are greaaaaaaaat. Especially Membrane Wall of Taboo. I like Schroedinger's bake-neko, but I think I like Membrane Wall best. The style of this cd doesn't appeal to my tastes, but I think it'll grow on me.

The simplest way to think about it is "They're not exactly flesh and blood". Youkai are more of a spiritual thing, so it makes sense that, scientifically, they're made of something... somewhat different than, say, a human or a squirrel. It's been said in ZUN's works that, for example, they're extremely resistant physically, but weak to spiritual attacks; this is because their existence isn't explicitly tied to having a living body like a person, where if our bodily functions are messed with we'll die.

So Merry/Renko are making a scientific justification for youkai existing. Hi, Yumemi!

Kinda late but I just noticed that if you invert 燕石 (Swallowstone) into 石燕 you get "Sekien".
It could be only a coincidence, but considering things, I'd say this is not only a pun, but I can't really tell. Wondering if someone has noticed it already but decided to discard it.
