Song of the Week! 6 July 2013


Well, guys... it finally happened. After so many consecutive months of successful Group challenges in the DonChare, June 2013's collective trial ultimately resulted in a failure, with 8,730 plays for the chosen songs against the required 10,000.

In order to ease this disappointing result, today I'm going to cover one of the two Namco Originals involved for last June's Group challenge. And since we already covered the other song last month, there's just one more to go.

 Omoi o Te ni Negai o Komete (想いを手に願いを込めて)
Version
Taiko 0x4 (157)x5 (250)x6 (333)x7 (581)
Taiko 0.5, Taiko Wii 5x4 (157)x5 (250)x5 (333)x7 (581)
 Taiko 0, Taiko Wii 5
 180
 none
 quant


Sharing the exact same difficulty stars with Phoenix (at least until a certain update for Katsu-Don), Omoi o Te ni Negai o Komete comes from the HD Taiko cab, joining many other new songs in the first batch of Don Point unlockables (which incidentally is still unmatched in terms of volume in the later firmware upgrades).

This Namco Original song features another recurrent couple of singer/composer: the vocals are provided by Kaori Aihara (愛原圭織), known for her squeaky, high-pitched voice in other songs like SORA-IV Bunpasong and Total Eclipse 2035, while the song is made by mirawi (みらゐ), who is also the co-composer of all the Chata songs in Taiko games with Satou-gin (佐藤銀). After two songs related to space, Kaori Aihara's topic for the third song is a bit different, telling about how a cold and formal vision of the world dictated by formulas and physical particles may change into a more emotional and lively existence when you meet someone special (well she's definitely no stranger to weird lyrics).

Saitama 2000's downgrade to 7* made it the benchmark for charts of this difficulty, and Omoi o Te tries to live up to the standard with high BPM and clusters. There is a panic-inducing segment in the middle with crazy, confusing segments of 2 and 6 note clusters changing between red and blue (one of the hardest 7* chart patterns to sightread, ever). The rest of the chart is more standard 7* Oni, albeit at quite a fast speed.
