Well, back to music. Here I listen to several cute themes
"Flandre Scarlet's theme. I liked this one the best out of the whole game. It depicts a devilish girl in an Oriental and mysterious way."

Flan is creepy and cute at the same time, I like it.
"Sakuya Izayoi's theme. You can't have a maid without hard rock. It's quite driving, fitting for the second-to-last stage.
...Guess I still don't know much about rock (^^;
Let's just say it's poetic rock, done my way."

Meh. Sakuya must be Maid for battle.
"Rumia's theme. Not just this, but all the music this time is meant to be light. This comes from an image of youkai in night... or, at least, I hope so. It's fairly relaxed and a little silly."

Rumia is always happy, sad to see her cry.
"Cirno's theme. I actually did think of a dim-witted girl for this. However, I don't know if what came out can be considered bright or dark. The tempo is pretty fast, but... Well, it's stage 2."

Cirno isn't much of an idiot though, she's Cool.
"Patchouli Knowledge's theme. Again with this sick feeling... It's a dark song, without any light or bright moments, despite its quite fast-paced nature. It could stand to be a little less heavy, as listening to this piece could drag someone down."

Patchy is always there in the library, kinda like me, anti-social at times.
"Iku Nagae's theme. This is a pretty old story, but I saw an oarfish mummy in an aquarium once. I'd seen pictures before, but seeing it in person leaves a totally different impact. It's a flat and unusually long fish. It's hard to believe it's something from this world. This is the theme song for that sort of Iku."

Sometimes Iku is annoying with that spell card..
"Aya Shameimaru's theme. This is the short version of the theme to Bohemian Archive in Japanese Red. The original piece was a long six minutes, but such long battles in this game cannot happen, so I took the main section and looped it. I imagined a wind god girl looking good playing the trumpet when I made this. A world where feelings fly on the winds. This is the image I had in mind for Phantasmagoria of Flower View."

Aya's Such a Bae at :3
"Tenshi Hinanawi's theme. The key image is of a very willful and self-centered character. She's as self-centered as Remilia is. Heaven is really full of enlightened persons of character, but even among them there are inferior ones like her. Still, that gives her an almost human feel. Turning it around, you might say she's an oasis within Heaven. Not that this has anything to do with the song, really."

Tenshi is great with the sword and shield, but with rocks, ugh. She's too much with those.
"The three Prismriver Sisters' theme. I rearranged this piece to exude a lighter atmosphere than the original. Some time later, I want to make a piece that showcases the sisters performing solo. Lunasa on violin, Merlin on trumpet, piano and accordion for Lyrica makes sense in this piece, but if you think about it, who's playing the drums and keeping beat?"
ZUN- Ghostly Band ~ Phantom EnsembleYouTube Video
Three ghosts with instruments, nice. They make a great band.
"Reisen Udongein Inaba's theme. I made a few tweaks to the original to make it a little more nostalgic. I had my reasons for the original, but for this game, it may have been a little too much. Almost like "why's it so serious?" Well, Imperishable Night's pieces were all just a little too much. Because it was about night and time... Well, maybe that doesn't make any sense. Could you say this one's about flowers and idiots..."

I thought Reisen was helpless, until I knew she had magic finger guns and laser eyes. She creeps me out.
