Nightwish and Avantasia meets Touhou o-o

Yeah, that sounds like a valid use case. That child tag is fine.

Yes, I know that's possible. But I thought, since this is a database focusing on Touhou music, we could somehow highlight the OST by giving it an own song type (like we seperate Touhou related circles from other groups)

Maybe. Those could be children of this tag. Then again, if it's Touhou original, you can already search those by filtering by ZUN as artist, right? Because they're pretty much all ZUN.

Might not be that important at the moment but would it be better if we distinguish between original Touhou ost songs and other original songs not directly related to the Touhou games? It would be clearer for people who who explicitly search for the Touhou soundtrack.

Alright, thank you. I was confused, since the Can't Be with you tight remix came out before the original song.

@Kra The date fits to 4th instance of Autumn Reitaisai - IMO an uploader forgots to add a number to the event's name. The same issue is with Kouroumu 13.

Btw, it very rare to upload crossfades few years after the first release (unless the previous ones were lost/deleted or a circle uploads most of their works at once).

The album was released at many events, the ealiest one was 2017/10/15 at 博麗神社秋季例大祭. But the event date says 2014. Mistake maybe?

On VocaDB producer generally means composer or arranger. Of course composer mostly applies to original songs, and Touhou songs are mostly derivatives, so I guess 90% of the time producer is arranger here. But there might also be situations where the actual composer role is used, for example if the song is just mixing Touhou with an original song. I guess they could still be called arranger in that case, though.

Isn't arranger somehow synonymous with producer here?

A-One's event page and discography page have different credits for this track:
* event one credits: Arrange : Yassie | Remix : DJ Command
* discography one credits Arrange:DJ Command

Discography page was created later and IMO it provides more reliable information... I'm not sure if we have to include Yassie or not. Album scans would work as the best source.

@VOISART_ID It's good that you're providing originals, but the best way is to add them via external links (Edit > Basic info > (scroll down) External links, like in this example)

Could that be replaced by another rankings category for Touhou? Or is it better to be removed?

The original purpose of Vocaloid ranking (where the thing comes from) is to store lists made from fan-made rankings of most poular songs on Nicovideo uploaded each week. I found similar rankings for Touhou videos thanks to reddit wiki. The rankings list songs, MMDs - simply put, all videos related to Touhou - I don't know if all these videos should have entries here.

The rankings you're talking about are partially covered by top rated songs page page and hidden statistics page.

I've only seen this now, wow

Could that be replaced by another rankings category for Touhou? Or is it better to be removed?

No, I don't think a character ranking would make sense. I don't know the original purpose of this category but maybe there could be an arrangement ranking (which song was arranged the most in a month or something like that.)

Aaaand there is a bug that derivative songs from character theme songs (or generally songs, where a character is added to) don't automatically appear in the character's song list. You have to add them extra. Could this be fixed?

@Kra @RedWhiteLampad I finished the entry. It's one of psytrance styles. Songs listed under the tag have other tags related to psytrance and its subgenres.

It was discussed many times before like in this topic. There's a work item on Github where the source code is kept. To keep short, it isn't as simple as it sounds because of fields inheriting (subjects, lyrics), searching issues and stuff that could be easily ommited if not carefully planned.

The best we can do is to use multiple originals tag and keep links to 2nd and other original songs in external links section.

I've been noticing multiple instances among the artists I follow where they combine two or more songs for their own unique arrangements. However, we're only able to add one original song entry, so naturally, I think it'd be best if we could expand that option.

I listened to two songs just now (this one and Connection), and yes, both of them have the same "feeling" (especially first half of FINALES FUNKELN - a softest part), but uses the different arrangement, instruments and focuses on different parts of the theme. While FINALES FUNKELN changes with each minute and is more dissorted in its sound, a Connection's melody is more delicate and steady. It's hard for me to describe it.

Either way, both songs are based on Marisa's theme (and Connection is mixed with Reimu's theme) so they utilizes the same melodies, but it's hard to say this arrangement is the base for a later one. The safe choice is to put originals indicated by creators unless it's obvious that the song references heavily to another one. The example of it is this song by TUMENECO which is made by adding vocal to and existing arrangement with different title.

By the way, アリア=外道丸 arranged U.N. Owen song more than 50 times - it would need much effort to keep track "inspirations" from other songs without help of the creator.

Then is it possible, that CONNECTION is an arrangement of this one? Because these parts sound really similar

So far my favorite Album from FS. I, personally, am not such a big fan of electronic music with German vocals but this really got me. Even though the lyrics are pretty easy (and sometimes a bit cheesy, at least for me, a native speaker) the electro sound make it up. All in all a good Touhou album.

緋子望, I am the one who added this entry.

At first sight the entry looks like it's empty, but if you check "collaborations" (参加したアルバム) and "all songs" (曲全て) tab, you'll find works the entry is connected with. They aren't visible on a main page of the entry because the entry has set "support" role in all works listed in TouhouDB.

The song is described by its maker as 東方っぽい曲 (Touhou-ish song), so I'm not sure which song type I have to put...

One of the albums that got me into Touhou music. Demetori has very energetic style. It's hard to choose a favorite from this album. All of the first 4 tracks are great. Nuclear Fusion is a great song to begin with.

I'm not sure about release date of the album.

  • It was planned to release on March 13th at Reitaisai 8, but the event was postponed to May. I guess this date is written on the CD, and that's why Suruga-ya and VGMdb list it.
  • The blog post linked to the entry announces Toranoana sale in April. Not sure if it was pre-order or not.
  • The actual Reitaisai was held on May 8th, 2013 and the circle wrote a thank-you post on their blog.

@HiganRen you can ask for account verification if you arranged the song.

The entry is okay, but I'm not sure about a state of YouTube upload. It can stay as original PV if it was uploaded with your or Higan Daybreak's permission but a description of the video says it isn't the case. If it's true, the PV type should be "other" - because the audio is the same but not the video.

@Kra I think I found the credits - according to this reprint the song was arranged by Tutti Sound.

The reprint was a second result on YouTube after typing "平安のエイリアン オーケストラ" (en. Heian Alien Orchestra) into a search bar.

I think it doesn't really matter. Maybe it would be ok to add the "simultaneous release" tag, if they were released at the same game.

Okay, it would be difficult to find out which version was "original" so I think it would be reasonable to let know which version "appears" in the game earlier.

In this gameplay (with English patch) a Makai route was listed first after defeating 1st boss. Because of that, I'm for Makai version to be set as original.

There's also some references from text files attached to the game (translations are on Touhou Wiki), but there's no specific order when both places/routes are mentioned:
* in manual backstory section, Hell (Jigoku) was first mentioned,
* in the same manual, in hints section, Makai route walkthrough was first described.

There is a slight difference in pitch between the Makai and Jigoku versions of this song.

If it's a case, shouldn't the song have two entries?

I forgot that I added the tag.

Some illustrators I added (like Jon Suwako) create hentai mangas and a tag like this would be good to warn minors against checking artist's galleries or shops. I think NSFW tag would be used for any +18 content, like explicit lyrics, sounds (moans?) or external links.
