Music titles translation
No. 1 Mysterious Purification Rod


  The title screen theme.

It's the same as usual, but since there's so many up-tempo tracks this time, I intended to make the title screen more subdued.

I wonder if it worked.

No. 2 Mist Lake


  The stage 1 theme.

Since it's the stage 1 theme, I made it a track with a bit of impact to it. Thanks to some principle or other, there's always mist hanging over the lake. No fish seem to live there, but it looks like there's various youkai

living there unexpectedly.

No. 3 Mermaid from the Uncharted Land


  Wakasagihime's theme.

She's a mermaid who's confident in her ability while underwater, but unfortunately there's more land than water in Gensokyo. I made this battle music with a light feeling to it, rather than a serious one.

I do love shrimp tempura.

No. 4 Humans and Youkai Traversing the Canal


  The stage 2 theme.

In sharp contrast to the relaxed feeling of stage 1, the youkai here has a "teenager who thinks she's cooler than everyone" thing going on, which I kept in mind somewhat.

Does the constant beat give a plainly-advancing feeling?

No. 5 Dullahan Under the Willows


  Sekibanki's theme.

I don't really know whether rokurokubi are supposed to stretch their neck or send their head flying off. But when the head comes off, they can move their body around,

so it seems like they can go back to normal, right?

No. 6 Bamboo Forest of the Full Moon


  The stage 3 theme.

It's a full moon in the Bamboo Forest. At some point, the Bamboo Forest of the Lost became a sacred place for youkai who worship the Moon.

I kept that from Imperishable Night in mind for this track, too.

No. 7 Lonesome Werewolf


  Kagerou Imaizumi's theme.

I tried giving it a "middle of the game boss" feeling. Well, it's stage 3 anyway.

By the way, since this full moon is real, she can transform, too.

No. 8 Magical Storm


  The stage 4 theme.

It's not quite "eerie," and not quite "bright." It gives more of a feeling of "floatiness." Even though it's a storm, you float around calmly...

As the word implies, it gives a feeling of your feet not being on the ground.

No. 9 Illusionary Joururi


  Benben Tsukumo's & Yatsuhashi Tsukumo's theme. I had wanted to make it a more clichéd kind of traditional Japanese song, but if you let the songs be too artsy, the atmosphere of the game is ruined. So I resisted. Though I did make it sort of like that, but I didn't have a sample for a biwa,

so I'm a bit depressed about that.

No. 10 The Shining Needle Castle Sinking in the Air


  The stage 5 theme.

I made it a song with no real meaning besides giving a lonely feeling.

It has a lonely melody, but a light-hearted rhythm.

I feel like when this sort of song starts playing, you've entered the final part of the game.

No. 11 Reverse Ideology


  Seija Kijin's theme.

I wrote this while thinking of the image of a little, lazy youkai. The result is pretty mischievous... well, the mood's pretty boss-like, so I'm happy. This is a little boss that would take the initiative in disliking others.

Even so, she's the villain this round.

No. 12 The Exaggerated Castle Keep


  The stage 6 theme.

This song feels like you're being rushed. Together with the last boss after this and the ending themes, there are 3 songs with the same melody.

Since I tried doing that this time around, it gives them all a sense of togetherness.

No. 13 Inchlings of the Shining Needle ~ Little Princess


  Shinmyoumaru Sukuna's theme.

I made it a cool song fit for a small body. It's not very heavy, but since it's a last boss, I gave it a nice expansion, and I think it feels good as a result.

Huh? She's not small? Well, then please beat the game.

No. 14 Thunderclouds of Magical Power


  The extra stage theme.

A straightforward, free-flowing theme for traveling.

Actually, a very Touhou-ish "essence" is scattered here and there,

but there's no deep meaning to it.

No. 15 Primordial Beat ~ Pristine Beat


  Raiko Horikawa's theme. I wanted to make the song feature drums prominently, but in the end I just didn't have the courage. In terms of the game's image. The drums play a main part in a little bit of the song. On a side note, her shoes are probably structured so she can tap her feet

to hit the bass drum.

No. 16 Magical Power of the Mallet


  The ending theme.

I tried adding in parts of the last boss theme to the end.

Doesn't it give a different impression for each ending?

No. 17 Mysterious, Mysterious Tools


  The staff roll theme.

A different version of the title song. To be honest, I was thinking it wouldn't be the title, but a song for the ending.

If you look closely, the credits and the song match up perfectly.
