Touhou/Kishida Kyoudan & The Akeboshi Rockets – YU-MU

I have to agree with one of the comments for this video – “HOLY SHIT… It felt like my brain was being hit by a fucking sledgehammer made of win”.  The video’s title is 東方花神楽【Kinema Kan~2nd~】or Touhou Hana Kagura (Anime Motion Picture 2nd Curtain #2) or something along those lines.  But what I really want to point out is the song used.  YU-MU by 岸田教団&The明星ロケッツ (Kishida Kyoudan & The Akeboshi Rockets) from 幻想事変 CD.  This song and the rest from KishiKyou & Akeboshi are just a bloody joy for me to listen too.

Full length version of YU-MU after the break…

      Yep,I don’t know if they are super hilarious but 知ってる?魔道書は鈍器にもなるのよ | “Did you know? The magic book doubles as a blunt weapon” is pretty funny track title.

      (a little bit lengthy history)

      Kishida Kyoudan & the Akeboshi Rockets started as a Touhou doujin music circle originally under the name Studio K2 (also labeled as 岸田教団 | Kishida Kyoudan). Their first CD is SUPER NOVA (2005) which is mostly non-vocal arrangements of Touhou music with the exception of track 9 “Midnightmagic” featuring ichigo. The next two releases, 明星ロケット (05/06) and SuperSonicSpeedStar (12/06), where just re-arrangements of more Touhou music but you’ll see some the songs return on the next Touhou arranged CD with vocals. Also along with SuperSonicSpeedStar they also released 星空ロジック〜Starry Sky Logic〜 (12/06) at the same time which is mostly a non-Touhou CD (as far as I know anyways, it isn’t listed on Touhou wiki) with vocals by ichigo for all the tracks. For their next release (retuning to Touhou arrangements), 幻想事変 (2007), they changed there name to 岸田教団&The明星ロケッツ | Kishida Kyoudan & the Akiboshi Rockets and also feature ichigo (now a permanent member it looks like for everything since 星空ロジック〜Starry Sky Logic〜) doing vocals. In 2008 they released Electric blue (Touhou) and Literal World (non-Touhou). Their next release is ROLLING★STAR in early 2010 as well as HIGHSCHOOL OF THE DEAD OP single. Other then a few contributions to some compilation CDs that should be all of their discography.
