Touhou Goes Jazz!

Sort of a follow up to the Gurren Lagann Goes Jazz post, now it’s Touhou that goes jazz this time around. Sent to me by Moritheil over at Anime Diet and The Mortheil Review. This Touhou jazz/swing song and animation is done by the masters of flash animation and doujin music themselves IOSYS. It’s quite amusing and the song will get stuck in your head after awhile. >_< People get drunk and there is dancing and singing and that’s about all I understand about the crazy animation. I don’t know much about Touhou though only that I played one of the games before and that’s about it. Click Here to see the high quality original flash animation in all it’s high res glory!

Are you a fan of Touhou and if so why?



    I love that song. “Touhou Chotto Matte!” is a very solid “IOSYS covers Touhou” record.

    And, why do I like it? I have *no idea*. I must be insane, because I’m not really good at shooters, and yet I enjoy these games immensely.

    And there’s the whole concept of these weirdly dressed girls flying in the sky shooting stuff at other weirdly dressed girls who shoot nigh-impossible-to-dodge bullet patterns.

    No clear reason. It’s just *a thing*.

  2. That was completely adorable and totally awesome. Video was <3

  3. If you’re looking for a solid set of Touhou jazz albums, I’d definitely consider looking into the albums by the doujin group Azure & Sands since they practically specialize in Touhou arrangements of that particular genre. And of course, I still think the best jazz piece by IOSYS is still Dead Girls Be Bop which can be found on their Suisuisuusuu album. Or you can just preview it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCCp6HSMEBU

  4. Fun times! There is now a subtitled version out as well.
