Made by You: Burst the Gravity and more

Today's notecharts are all made by Yusri Khairi, in celebration of the release of Taiko no Tatsujin Sorairo Version on March 13. And there are 25 of them (with a special cameo appearance at the end of this feature)!

....no, don't worry we're only picking three out of the 25, but of course, check out the rest as well!

Before we start our view on Burst the Gravity (video above), here are the charts Yusri lined up for us. 25 songs divided into three 'sessions'. We're picking one chart from each of the sessions.

That's a whole lot of songs! The Vocaloid special is concentrated in the middle section, but we'll get to that in a bit. Right now, let's talk about Burst the Gravity.

The song is used as the 2nd opening theme for the anime adaptation of Accel World, which was released in 2012 and based on a light novel series by Reki Kawahara. It has been in publication since 2009 and new books are being written even today! The story revolves around a virtual MMO game, like .hack before it, but this time the MMO is booted up by a program called Brain Burst, which accelerates the human brain's cognitive function and brings them into a world of fighting and games to earn points. The main character is Haruyuki Arita, and he is introduced to Brain Burst by a girl named Kuroyukihime. Through the 24 episodes he tries to find out the true purpose of Brain Burst by finding its creator.

Yusri's Taikojiro chart of the song is the full song lasting 4 and a half minutes long, with streams and clusters typical of a 9* Oni. Lots of 2 and 4 note clusters, and watch out for the long marathon stream at the end!

Next we'll look at one of the songs in the main course. Since it's mainly focused on Vocaloid, we'll pick one from there....*randomly points at the screen* Ah, there we go.

PoPiPo is one of Miku's oldest and shortest songs, which caught on to many fans for its bouncy rhythm and nonsense lyrics. Basically it's Miku talking about vegetable juice. Yep, that's about it. And the 2 minute video you see above is the full song; nothing more! It's actually become a meme among the Vocaloid comunity. PoPiPo is composed by LamazeP.

Since it has such a recognizable rhythm, it's pretty easy to build a Taiko chart out of it and make it sound good, and this is a pretty fun 9* both to play and to listen to.

Now for the ending course!

Wait, this sounds familiar....this is Red Rose Evangel! And the full version, from the 'Cry Out' album by Ayane! Yusri charted this beauty for Taikojiro, and with the 5 minute length of the song it's obviously going to exceed 1000 notes. There are quite areas in the song, and many other places which are just filled with cluster after cluster with no break at all, making this a pretty low-tier 10*. Try it!

You can check out all of Yusri's other charts on his Youtube channel as usual, and download all his Taikojiro charts as well as all previous charts he has made, through his brand-new website set up specially for Taikojiro charts! See it here!

Now, about that special appearance...

A song by Packer! It doesn't have a notechart yet, for good reason; this song is submitted by Packer into the CreoFUGA contest of 2013! Entry number 18 to be exact: you can view the submission here. Apparently the contest allows non-Japanese to enter, so if you've always wanted to see your song in Taiko, now's your chance!

Packer's song is currently one of the most-listened songs among the entries there, and just give it a go; I think it stands quite a good chance of being in the top 5!
