Event: Comiket 93
Comiket 93 will be held from December 29th to 31st, 2017. The first day is dedicated for Touhou only.
On November 2nd, circles had announced their stalls in the event, which is very early. A Touhou event at the end of the year is always something. There are many surprising elements, let’s get that right. At first, we’ll see the quantities – the number of albums released. I think the quality is there too. It’s exciting, a different excitement from the Summer Comiket (I think it’s because it’s almost time for New Year and the festive season, lol). C92 is not big like this C93, as you can tell based on the number of CDs released this time. But, thanks to C92, I have shaped my music taste clearer gradually changed some.
In this event, you can expect to have many arrangements from Touhou 16 ~ Hidden Stars in Four Seasons. I only played the demo once back then, so I don’t have any particular favorite themes. But over the process of writing this post, some of them have grown on me.
This Roundup post features some albums I’d like to hear and discover so all comments here are my personal thoughts. Everybody has the right to have opinions, doesn’t it? Also, my English still needs refinements and I’ll try to improve. If you found any grammatical mistakes or some lines I haven’t deleted due to my lack of proofreading, please tell me in the comments below. That’d be very helpful!

Event: Reitaisai 14
English Translation: Frozen Starfall
Reitaisai 14 will be held on May 5th,2017
My break didn’t turn out well. I said I want to take a break. Actually, I still worked like a maniac.
Reitaisai has come? Time does fly. It feels like Comiket 91 was just yesterday. For me, Comiket 91 wasn’t as good as I expected. C90 was still better. I like RTS more because it’s an only-Touhou event. We could get more Touhou stuff. My first event with Touhou was RTS13 which is last year. That was the time when I had a clearer look about doujin music circles. Now, it’s already RTS14.
Another Roundup post. A lot of things I’d like to talk and discuss about. This year also celebrates the 10th anniversary of Subterranean Animism. Works related to SA have been announced. SA is my favorite Touhou game. In addition, this event, ZUN will release the demo for Touhou 15.5 AND Touhou 16. I might pay more attention and expectation to RTS14.
I’m adding the “Highlighted track(s)”. The songs are mentioned in this section are just my personal favorite songs in the album and songs I want to translate if I had the chance to get or somehow have the booklets/scans.
