Yozakura Ryouran Kanshasai


The January 2015 DLC pack for Taiko 3DS2, containing the final Extra Story chapter, is just full of surprises. First we get Sacred Ruin Ura, an unannounced modification to an existing song on the 3DS songlist which is playable on normal mode, and one which Etou uses to challenge you in the story. Then there's the unannounced appearance of Kat-chan to Mariko no Ekaki Uta in the Story Mode, not playable in the regular songlist but appears with a Full Combo requirement in the story chapter so you can still technically play it all the way to the end.

Both are repeatable, which is a welcome addition.

AND THEN THERE'S THIS THING. THE BOSS SONG OF THE STORY CHAPTER.

Look at that title! On first glance, the kanji-heavy title's first and last letters make you think that it's just Yozakura Shanikusai, but it's not.

It's "Yozakura Ryouran Kanshasai" (夜桜繚乱感謝祭), a mishmash of two different songs, one of which it itself a fusion of two songs! Yozakura and Hyakka Ryouran interleave with one another to create a really, really annoying boss song with all of Timedyne's sadistic obstacles and tricks. And he has like 20,000 HP; the number only starts dropping from 9999 once the meter is drained to roughly  half.



As expected, this thing is like Time to dine II, in that it's exclusively played as the boss battle song and cannot be found on the regular songlist. It's a crazy challenge and most likely you could play through the whole thing without beating Timedyne EX even if your team is fully Lv50; he's that tough.

Another thing to note is the phrase 'kansha' (感謝) in the title, it means 'to give thanks'.

SO THIS IS THE TAIKO TEAM'S IDEA OF HOW TO SAY 'THANK YOU FOR PLAYING'. GOOD JOB GUYS, YOU'VE TOTALLY BOWLED ME OVER.

  1. It's a ploy to make us buy DLC Chapter 1 for the dopes! At least it is accurate that the recommended level is 50.
