Do you know the Touhou community?
“The Touhou Project (東方Project Tōhō Purojekuto?, lit. Eastern Project), also known as Toho Project or Project Shrine Maiden, is a Japanese dōjin game series focused on bullet hell shooters made by the one-man developer Team Shanghai Alice, whose sole member, known as ZUN, is responsible for all the graphics, music, and programming for the most part. The series was inducted into the Guinness World Records in October 2010 for being the “most prolific fan-made shooter series”.”
Nearly all characters in the games are female (and kind of bad). There is a massive fanbase around touhou drawings (of course). check out deviantart for example.
Part of the community are artists who arrange the soundtracks of the touhou games. And because it’s a big community, there are techno, electronic, schranz, hardcore, hardstyle, metal, orchestral remixes of touhou samples and many more.
Here is a rare gem, a makina arrange:
Very popular are the Satori Maiden themes (the whole video is 2 hours long and shows a lot of arranges. But when you klick it, it will start at 1:12:32, because there is a song i like a lot)
And here is a piano cover of satori maiden:
Another piano cover. I’m not sure which one, I can’t read japanese
Well, ok. There is still more
