ZUN's Comments

Track 1
メイガスナイト Magus Night


The final volume has quite a collection of tempestuous songs. This is the theme of the confrontation between Cirno and Marisa, so while it has nothing to do with the Three Fairies, if you were to replace them with Cirno, then that shouldn't be a problem, as far as the song goes. This song was composed with the image of a not serious, but clearly formidable foe. I particularly like how it feels like your field of vision suddenly opens up as the hook charges in.

Track 2
いたずらに命をかけて Staking Your Life on a Prank


The theme for the Three Fairies this time around. Different from the other one, I made this with the image of a not serious, but clearly unformidable foe. Even if they're a boss, if they aren't that strong, the difference is like night and day (lol). The original song was very short, so I rearranged it, adding a bit more of a melodious feel to it. Where the "Staking Your Life" in the title comes from is like how kids will just throw out "I bet my life on it." or "A promise until I die." Kids or adults wouldn't stake their lives on the things they say.

Track 3
古きユアンシェン Old Yuanxian


This was originally the hermit's theme, fast, furious and kind of Chinese, but surprisingly this kind of song fits the Three Fairies to a T so I included it. They're just hermits who like to play pranks and fool around. I guess they might have more in common than I thought. Actually, I tried to make this one in common with the other songs, giving it a serious intro and a light hook. I love that style of flow.
