Music List

Title Screen
Niji no Kakaru Gensoukyou
A Rainbow Spanning Gensokyo



This is the title screen theme.

A track that's refreshing, but still leaves a slightly lazy feeling. The rain may have lifted, but that doesn't make it any easier to get up and start being active, does it?

Stage 1 Theme
Youi-tachi no Toori Ame
A Shower of Strange Occurrences



This is the Stage 1 theme.

A track for flying over a forest in a downpour. When it comes to rainy music, the impression it gives flips by 180 degrees based on whether you make it feel damp, or give it a sense of speed. This track is in the latter category, befitting of Stage 1.

Stage 1 Boss - Mike Goutokuji's Theme
Daikichi Kitun
Kitten of Great Fortune

豪徳寺 ミケ(ごうとくじ みけ)のテーマです。


This is Mike Goutokuji's theme.

When you think of floods of customers and prosperous business, you think of the maneki-neko. I think this track's melody feels sort of Japanese, or sort of Chinese-- it's got an Oriental vibe of sorts. A bouncing, cat-like track. Cute, don't you think?

Stage 2 Theme
Shinryoku ni Kakusareta Dangai
The Cliff Hidden in Deep Green



This is the Stage 2 theme.

A track with a strong otherworldly feel to it right off the bat. The far reaches of a mountain are an Otherworld from a human's perspective, you know? Even with satellite photography showing us the whole world nowadays, mountain crags covered in deep forest are as alien as ever.

Stage 2 Boss - Takane Yamashiro's Theme
Bandettorī Tekunorojī
Banditry Technology

山城 たかね(やましろ たかね)のテーマです。


This is Takane Yamashiro's theme.

She's one of the yamawaro, the mountain youkai that serve as counterparts to the kappa. As befits an intellectually-leaning youkai(?), this track came out with the feeling that she's fighting you as if playing a game. It's an interesting track, with a nostalgic mood to it somewhere.

Stage 3 Theme
Komakusa Saku Pāpechuaru Sunō
The Perpetual Snow of Komakusa Blossoms



This is the Stage 3 theme.

I pictured a high, just slightly broad plateau atop a mountain. Since these kinds of flat plateaus are hard to reach, people long ago often called them hidden villages for the Taira or ninjas, didn't they? I don't think there's any truth to it, of course, but it's certainly romantic.

Stage 3 Boss - Sannyo Komakusa's Theme
Sumōkingu Doragon
Smoking Dragon

駒草 山如(こまくさ さんにょ)のテーマです。


This is Sannyo Komakusa's theme.

She's called Komakusa-dayuu thanks to how she dresses, and the pipe she holds in one hand. I composed a track with a strong, straightforward sense of individuality to it. I did try to make something more yakuza-ish, though. What's up with this "midboss" feeling...? Well, she is just serving as the gatekeeper; she's a midboss through and through.

Stage 4 Theme
Sutareyuku Sangyou Ikou
The Obsolescent Industrial Remains


かつては鉱山というと周辺に街が出来るくらいの一大産業でした。運搬のために道や鉄道も発達し、日本の産業を支えていました。しかし、現在は殆ど閉山しています。 この曲は鉱山跡にノスタルジアを感じてこんな感じになりました。

This is the Stage 4 theme.

In the past, mining was such a big industry that towns were built around it. Roads and railroads were developed to transport ores, and they supported Japanese industries. However, most of the mines have now been closed. This theme was inspired by nostalgia for the mine ruins.

Stage 4 Boss - Misumaru Tamatsukuri's Theme
Jindai Kouseki
Ore from the Age of the Gods

玉造 魅須丸(たまつくり みすまる)のテーマです。

ダンジョンの奥で敵か味方か判らない謎の人物と対峙するイメージで作曲しました。そのまんまですね(笑) さて、突如現れた伊弉諾物質ですが、僕が作った同名の音楽CDに出てきますのでそちらも是非。結局、謎の物質です。

This is Misumaru Tamatsukuri's theme.

I composed this theme with the image of confronting a mysterious person deep in a dungeon, who you can't identify as an enemy or ally. And that's exactly what happens (haha). Now, the Izanagi Objects that suddenly appeared also appear in the music CD of the same name that I made, so be sure to check that out as well. At the end of the day, they're still mysterious objects.

Stage 5 Theme
Machiwabita Oumagatoki
The Long-Awaited Oumagatoki



This is the Stage 5 theme.

The initial image is that of a fantastic view from the mountains, followed by the world suddenly becoming more familiar once a tengu appears. As the world becomes narrower, your heart becomes lighter... that's the sort of feeling this track has. As a nice contrast to the suffocating feeling of Stage 4's Rainbow Dragon Cave, this stage is lighthearted and fun, with a boss who's easy to understand.

Stage 5 Boss - Megumu Iizunamaru's Theme
Hoshifuru Tenma no Yama
Starry Mountain of Tenma

飯綱丸 龍(いいずなまる めぐむ)のテーマです。


This is Megumu Iizunamaru's theme.

As befits an important tengu, this theme is melancholic while still retaining a jokey feel. The main phrase of the theme is nostalgic for me personally, and for some reason it makes my eyes tear up. I wonder if it's because we rarely see themes with game-like phrases like this anymore.

Stage 6 Theme
Runa Reinbō
Lunar Rainbow



This is the Final Stage theme.

I set a light rhythm to the fantastical night sky. Come to think of it, when I was a child, I used to see my shadow cast clearly onto the ground by moonlight. Have I stopped seeing it because everything around you is so bright nowadays? Or had it been a youkai's doing?

Stage 6 Boss - Chimata Tenkyuu's Theme
あの賑やかな市場は今どこに ~ Immemorial Marketeers
Ano Nigiyaka na Shijou wa Ima Doko ni ~ Immemorial Marketeers
Where Is That Bustling Marketplace Now ~ Immemorial Marketeers

天弓 千亦(てんきゅう ちまた)のテーマです。


This is Chimata Tenkyuu's theme.

She's a market god. A rainbow is a place where Otherworlds intersect with ours. Those very places where different things cross paths are her territory. Her theme likewise became one where two sections intersect: a fun and lively section with a light rhythm to it, and a powerful section that might somehow sound like wailing.

Extra Stage Theme
Gensou no Chika Daisenromou
The Great Fantastic Underground Railway Network



This is the Extra Stage theme.

I envisioned Reimu and co. heading out on their mine-exploring journey with no reservations, thanks to the magatama (oxygen tank) they've obtained. They've been yanked back and forth all over the place up until now, but now their counterattack begins... or at least, it was supposed to. Who would've thought that they'd get yanked around even more?

Extra Boss - Momoyo Himemushi's Theme
Ryuuou-goroshi no Purinsesu
The Princess Who Slays Dragon Kings

姫虫 百々世(ひめむし ももよ)のテーマです。


This is Momoyo Himemushi's theme.

She's a centipede princess. Y'know, no matter how much I like insects, centipedes are... yikes. They're hideous, poisonous, fairly familiar, and low-rarity. They're packed with nothing but detestable qualities, and yet, I still hate them. Her theme, however, turned out to be supremely fun, and just as cool as centipedes are. Maybe I do like them after all.

Ending Theme
Arashi no Ato no Nichiyoubi
The Sunday After the Storm



This is the ending theme.

I long for Sundays where I can relax and do nothing with a beer in my hand.

Staff Roll Theme
Niji-iro no Sekai
A Rainbow-Colored World



This is the staff roll theme.

I dream of the day when the world's markets will be smiling and bustling again.
