Shimedore 2000



First video of Shimedore 2000, the post-final 2000 song released on Taiko 14! Some mind-shattering facts if you read on~
Hear anything familiar in that song up there? Yeah, the quirky letter at the beginning of the title (〆) may be pronounced as 'shime' but it looks exactly like katakana 'me' (メ), which makes it 'Medley 2000'. And that's exactly what it is- no new song was actually made. All the most memorable (and toughest) bits from all 14 (counting Haya Saitama, not counting Joubutsu) 2000 songs in one place! And that's not the most exciting thing about this song, no, there's something even bigger than that.

Brace yourselves.


Shimedore 2000 has 1414 notes.

I am not kidding. No. I'll repeat that again too.

Shimedore 2000 has 1414 notes.

The first ever Taiko song to break the 999 note limit has this many notes. I'm as shocked as you are! It's true!

  7. @Living Jelly: Joubutsu is still harder than this.

    Anyway, aqua, if I may add to the references to the number '14' (IDK if this is worth adding in the 2000 article):

    -Muzukashii full combo is 1004. If you remove the 0's in the middle, it becomes '14'.
    -Futsuu full combo is 498. Add the digits together and you get 21. 21 is 14 x 1.5.
    -Unfortunately, Kantan had 375 combo, in which when the digits are added it becomes '15' :/

  8. Aw, Kantan kinda ruins it :(

  9. Just wait before thinkin'that. If you all make calculations around the digits, the 375 notes of Kantan can be arranged like this:

    7*(5-3)=14

    I insist it's a sick way to find another '14' with those methods, the two '14' of Oni mode are enough v.v

  10. lol Let's try find in the music time: Shimedore has exactly 2minutes and 57 seconds then:
    2.57= 114

  11. I think those are already too far-fetched to be actually intentional, hahaha :|

  12. That's kinda pushing it too far. But so was Kita 200 :3

    ReplyDelete
  13. Maybe I push it too far, but actually if we add the digits 2:57 we get 14, it was more simple than I though... And this time is not so far-fetched, at least makes more sense than the Kantan one.

  14. And in tone with Shimedore, here's the 14th comment xD

    By the way, has anyone noticed that a perfect play of the song will offer a 876 combo counter right on the end of the Soroban section? Thrilling...
