"Yougaku" refers to a type of music that is in danger of disappearing from today's world, FM synthesis.
Many years ago in Gensokyo, there was a band known as the Yougakudan which dearly loved FM synthesis.

Here I shall record the history of the music the Yougakudan has left us that it forever remain in the Gensokyo Chronicle.

Maiden Are the Ninth - Akyu


This is a history of Yougakudan from the collection of Hieda no Akyu.
This final volume is the soundtrack of Highly Responsive to Prayers. For me, this is the absolute starting point. There are a lot of really good songs in here, if I do say so myself.

However, there aren't a lot of songs, so I decided to add something as a bonus track. It really is just an extra, but... by leaving it to the end, it becomes another sort of starting point.

It's been 13 years since I wrote these songs...
To be frank, those 13 years have passed just like that. You can't let your days pass by with regrets. Before you know it, your strength of will and body are taken away from you, and all that's left over are lead dreams - a heavy-metal spirit that won't even cross over the Sanzu River.

Somebody said that death is the great equalizer; I wonder who it was?
I get the feeling that a few humans live out their lives in their own way and become something else entirely.
