pikaby asks: Best 'boss' song?

Starting from Meccha! Taiko no Tatsujin on Nintendo DS, there has been a rhythm based combat-driven story mode in almost every subsequent console Taiko, and each of the bosses have their own theme songs which you can play to.

Taiko 3DS adds another awesome final boss Namco Original song to the list of already awesome boss songs, but how do you think it matches up with the previous ones? Which of these Story Mode songs do you think is the best, in terms of song quality, or notechart, or even just the general boss character design and theme?

Warera Muteki no Dokon Dan (Taiko DS2)
Yami no Tamashii (Taiko DS2)
Jigoku no Daiou (Taiko DS3)
Hikari no Kanata e (Taiko Wii 2) <- link is short version
Waruru-sama no Uta o Kike! (Taiko Wii 2)
Cycle of Rebirth (Taiko PSP DX)
Maou no Showtime (Taiko 3DS)

I have to say, Maou no Showtime is a real earworm and very hard to get rid of once it's stuck in your head, mainly because it's just so powerful sounding, and the notechart is epic too. Hikari no Kanata e had the same effect on me back in 2009. And the best stream too. Yeah, best deathstream in a boss song ever.


  1. Boss songs? Then forever it's hikari no kanata e <3

  2. Cycle of Rebirth is the more easy, but it's my favorite!

  3. I have not heard Maou no Showtime yet, someone fetch me a link

    Cycle of Rebirth, Warera Muteki no Dokon Dan, and Hikari no Kanata He for me. To some extent Waruru-sama no Uta O Kike! is stuck on my head for some god damn reason


    1. Notechart and grainy music is on this blog entry, HQ music is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHdz8hCzgYk

  4. Hikari no Kanata He,because ALL DAT HOT-BLOODEDNESS.

    And totally not because there's that kickass mashup between it and Scripted Connection=>,nope.
