Description

Their musical style is very diverse, ranging from silly-sounding songs to powerful badass ones.

It's is mainly formed of people living in Hokkaidō, and a few based in Kantō. It occasionally hosts guest participants, such as LUV2 (CTBR) or 溝口ゆうま (大江戸宅急便). Members of Innocent Key have been frequent guests in recent albums.

Flash Videos

Marisa stole the precious thing - the most known IOSYS flash.

IOSYS is famous for its flash videos they release once in a while.

IOSYS made a lot of flash videos in collaboration with various studios like TETLA-POT. It's not only that they're very popular and spawned a lot of memes inside Touhou community. They became known to people outside the community, thus contributing to Touhou popularity.

The most notable one is Marisa stole the precious thing.

Rozen Maiden reference

According to the one-hundred-fifth-second version of IOSYS's web radio "Nurupo Housoukyoku", the titles of CD include several jokes of letter. Each title of the first to the eighth CD includes a kanji from one of the Rozen Maidens' names. So, at least, the titles are parodies like below.

  • 東方風宴 (Main Character 田ジュン) (Jun Sakurada)
  • 東方乙女囃子 (Another name of Rozen Maiden 薔薇乙女)
  • 東方月籠 (1st Doll 水銀) (Suigintou)
  • 東方永峰 (2nd Doll 金糸) (Kanaria)
  • 東方萃酒酔 (3rd Doll 星石) (Suiseiseki)
  • 東方河想狗池 (4th Doll 星石) (Souseiseki)
  • 東方華神祭 (5th Doll 紅) (Shinku)
  • 東方想幽森 (6th Doll 苺) (Hinaichigo)
  • 東方氷歌集 (7th Doll 華綺晶) (Kirakishou)
  • 東方泡沫天 (OP song of Rozen Maiden: Ouvertüre 薔薇乙女)
  • 東方超都転 (Villain Character ラプラスの) (Laplace's Demon)

Other jokes are about four-character idiom:

  • 東方櫻宴 (風)
  • 東方乙女囃子 (the sound of 囃子, "hayashi", is the same as 林)
  • 東方月籠 (the left side radical of 燈 is 火)
  • 東方永雀 (the left side radical of 峰 is 山)

They are compounded to be read as 風林火山.

  • 東方萃翠酔 (酒)
  • 東方河想狗蒼 (池)
  • 東方真華神 (the upper-left side is nikuduki, 月, or meat, 肉)
  • 東方想幽雛 (森 includes 林)

They are compounded to be read as 酒池肉林 (extremely luxurious and bestial. literally, alcohol in pond and meats among trees).
