Hello everyone! I'm still alive. Just been busy with schoolwork on weekdays and more schoolwork to come this weekend. I don't think I'll be able to get a full review of this album out any time soon but I'll be putting out some songs that I've been listening to lately, just like what I've done with this post and my previous post. Now onto my album preview and my favorite song from the album:
Sakura Ame Kinematograph ~Taishou Ippyakunen Kitan~ is an album by Automata Girl, featuring the arrangers from Aftergrow: Mano and Hiratake as well as vocalists from various circles. For some reason, they decided to use "Orca Ameno" as the arranger names for this album. Mano and Hiratake both make some really interesting and unique arrangements and this album really lives up to their reputation and style.
然様ならば (Sayou naraba) is an arrangement of Sakuya Izayoi's theme, Lunar Clock ~ Luna Dial. It is a very short song but I feel that it does an amazing job at capturing the essence of Sakuya! In it, we get a glimpse of Sakuya's daily life as the head maid of the Scarlet Devil Mansion. I can't praise Tsubaki Ichimatsu enough as she once again does a fantastic job on the vocals in this song; Both her japanese and English are just so enchanting to listen to in this song (her english has improved since her syrufit/poplica days!). The instrument featured here is an accordian or concertina. I'm not really sure since these kinds of instruments are rarely used in Touhou music. Though being a foreign instrument, it really adds a nice and unique touch to the lovely vocals of Tsubaki. Among all the various arrangements of Luna Dial, 然様ならば (Sayou naraba) is truely a special one.
Lastly, the translation of the lyrics for this song can be found here or by turning on the CC in the youtube video,
