No. 1 A Shadow in the Blue Sky

@

  This is the title screen theme.

Well, it's the same feeling as always. I tried to give it a particularly affected air. I want to look up at the sky while I'm walking, but I'm afraid people

will think I'm weird, so I look straight ahead when I walk.

No. 2 At the End of Spring

@

  The stage 1 theme.

I wanted to start with something nice and casual, so this is how it came out. I guess bright songs just aren't that great for shooting games? Or so say people whose likes and tastes change at the time with their moods.

It's so invigorating that it makes me want to fly out the window.

No. 3 A Tiny, Tiny, Clever Commander

@

  This is Nazrin's theme.

Isn't the song boss-like? Never mind how she looks. Once, a long time ago, a mouse climbed into the kotatsu with me. It even bit me. The bleeding wouldn't stop, so I had to stay home from school.

Mice are actually pretty strong, so they're dangerous. Never mind how they look.

No. 4 The Sealed Cloud Route

@

  This is the stage 2 theme.

I tried to bring out a floating feeling the stage 1 theme didn't have. You're swimming thru the clouds, where surely there are youkai. One imagines it must feel good, but it's probably real cold.

Your clothes would probably freeze. I wonder if I'd have the guts to do it.

No. 5 Beware the Umbrella Left There Forever

@

  This is Kogasa Tatara's theme.

Most people probably buy quite a few umbrellas over their lives. You forget them on trains, and you buy vinyl umbrellas when you're caught in sudden rain. Anyway, I wrote this song based on the image of a self-centered karakasa youkai

who gets depressed easily despite her cheery nature.

No. 6 Sky Ruin

@

  This is the stage 3 theme.

I tried to evoke a cryptic atmosphere without losing the airiness. When it comes to floating in the sky, you really do think of Laputa; but I've already made that descent.

So, when it comes to ruins... you still think of Laputa.

No. 7 The Traditional Old Man and the Stylish Girl

@

  This is Ichirin Kumoi & Unzan's theme.

Since they're pretty fun characters, I tried to make it fun and old-fashioned. It's really nice, sometimes silly and sometimes sentimental. Unzan is made out of clouds, so don't worry about it if more than two

of him or four of his arms show up at once. Flash of insight!

No. 8 Interdimensional Voyage of a Ghostly Passenger Ship

@

  This is the stage 4 theme.

Aren't journeys great? I feel the most excited when I'm riding on a vessel. Even if it's the ship of the infamous ghost captain who sinks lots of other ships. I mixed anticipation and anxiety together as much as I could when making this song,

trying to give it a sense of excitement.

No. 9 Captain Murasa

@

  This is Minamitsu Murasa's theme.

Since she sinks lots of ships, she's a well-known ghost captain. I tried to give it a "captain" atmosphere, so it's a little too cool. Everyone calls her Murasa, but "murasa" is the name of a youkai,

so they're not really calling her by name - surprise!

No. 10 Rural Makai City Esoteria

@

  This is the stage 5 theme.

This is a song with irregular rhythms, but it's upbeat. Pretty Makai-ish. It gets pretty intense when you're listening to it with the sound effects from gameplay, so I hope you'll listen closely while playing.

The name comes from the song having both a rural and an urban feel.

No. 11 The Tiger-Patterned Vaiśravaṇa

@

  This is Shou Toramaru's theme.

I gave this song a quiet, but strong feel. The second half is awfully boss-ish. It's a feeling of dignity rather than terror. Still, those lasers coming one after the other are pretty scary.

They're old-man killers you need really good reflexes to dodge.

No. 12 The Fires of Hokkai

@

  This is the stage 6 theme.

A song with too much tension. The stage is short and not too hard, so I had to add to the tension.

The heartbeats make you want to hurry, don't they?

No. 13 Emotional Skyscraper ~ Cosmic Mind

@

  This is Byakuren Hijiri's theme.

From the quiet heartbeat, suddenly it feels like the world's opening up. This is the theme of a last boss who's hard to tire out, probably. It's overall fairly melodiously Japanese, and I tried to make the melody of the

main part like one of those songs where everyone's singing. Human, bare your feelings and GO!

No. 14 UFO Romance in the Night Sky

@

  This is the extra stage theme.

Aren't UFOs cute? The extra is much different than the main stages, and this song is a cute send-off. I went for a pop feel for this song.

UFOs are kind of pop-ish, after all.

No. 15 Heian Alien

@

  This is Nue Houjuu's theme.

A vigorously youkai youkai song. It's a song with an old-fashioned, Japanese sense of terror and sorrow floating about. Isn't it really fitting for an EX boss?

The mostly one-shot recording full of ad-libbing is also pretty EX-ish.

No. 16 Youkai Temple

@

  This is the ending theme.

Usually the ending is for a Shinto shrine, but this time it's for a Buddhist temple.

Temples have a much darker image than shrines.

Well, calling it "dark" is kind of rude. I meant "boring" (just kidding)

No. 17 Returning Home from the Sky ~ Sky Dream

@

  This is the staff roll theme.

It ended up being an arrangement of Emotional Skyscraper.

This song has the feel of the quiet trip home after a journey.

Oh, look up there~, there's a UFO in the night sky.
