"Hey you, brat with the good voice."

"…what do you want?"

"You seem…familiar. Have we met at another rock band battle before?"

"Heh. Looks like Armin was right…you really don’t remember."

"Remember what exactly?"

"You don’t even know the reason why you named your entry song ‘Wings of Freedom?"

"…not really? It just…came to me when we were writing."

"Think about it - hard - maybe something will actually ring a bell. And oh…one more thing."


"I’m the same age as you this time around, so enough with the ‘brat’ already."

There are about a billion arrangements of “Bad Apple!!” but this one, performed with traditional Japanese instruments, is one of the best and most unique that I’ve seen. 

It’s the complete opposite of the bouncy techno remixes (which, don’t get me wrong, I enjoy) that make up a lot of Touhou Project fan music, and actually feels a lot truer to the nature of Gensokyo.
