Namco Taiko Blog (March 26 2015) - Livestream Ahoy and April DonChare

Yesterday's surprise blog post was not very surprising considering most were already previewed in a livestream. Today's regular blog post is perhaps not very regular but still also concerns a livestream.

Twitter Snippets (Mar 24 2015) - Huis Ten Bosch Gets Purple Too

So even I have forgotten when exactly this installation started, but the Huis Ten Bosch 3D Projection Mapping Taiko no Tatsujin has no signs of retreating. In fact it is expected to add more songs, some being Murasaki ver. additions, no less!

Day by Day! Lyrics (Unofficial)

Composer: Kazuaki Miyaji (宮路一昭), as TONES Project

Note: This is yet to be a confirmed set of lyrics, only a popular speculation. This will be fixed when the official lyrics have been released.

Kanjani no Shiwake Eight Ends

Notable with us for hosting regular Taiko no Tatsujin battles and tournaments, the rather long running (almost 3 years now) variety show Kanjani no Shiwake Eight (関ジャニの仕分け∞) has aired its final episode on March 21 2015. Specially remarkable is that the show has been using quite a lot of newly charted J-POP songs (with the original recording no less), only seen in the show and the limited exhibition cabinet at the TV Asahi station (already retreated 2013 year-end).

The battles in the last episode uses Kurenai on Muzukashii and the limited Oni notechart of LOVE PHANTOM, reproduced in Taiko Sanjiro as below. Resident challenger Oogura has full combo-ed both attempts and wins over his previous rival.

Namco Taiko Blog (Mar 19 2015) - Tournaments, and What You Want of Them

We are having a slightly different vibe in today's Namco Taiko Blog from Etou, who takes the time to sincerely talk to you, and more importantly hearing from you, about something near and dear to the franchise: Tournaments.

Players: Do you want more tournaments to join? Arcade centers (and staff): Do you want more tournaments to host? Etou and the Taiko Team are here to listen to your fresh opinions, and to help making what you hope a reality.

Write now via Twitter to @taiko_time to express your thoughts and even proposals! The Team is open for opinion from March 19 (in fact now!) until March 31.

For discussion's sake, this time we are not talking about large-scale national tournaments or online events over the Donder Hiroba, but more towards real-life, local arcade tournaments hosted by real-life arcade centers. Be on the lookout when the Team returns to these two in the future!

For the truest sentiments and gratitude from Etou which we are not going to butcher here, please do check out the original post.
