Reitaisai 5 Releases

It’s that time of year again— Reitaisai Season.

Seems everyone’s releasing something this year; it’s the first time Reitaisai is going to be at the Big Sight. A much larger venue than last year’s means an overwhelming increase in participation.


First off, we have the two biggies:

Twilight Frontier has announced the release of Touhou 10.5: Scarlet Weather Rhapsody. You can read more about the release announcement here.

Team Shanghai Alice has announced plans to release a demo of Touhou Chireiten~ Subterranean Animism, the 11th game in the Touhou canon. You can read more about this here.

Finally, on the doujin game front, the final version of Marisa & Alice (Mariari) will be released by Desunoya.

Read on to see what else we’ve learned.


There’s so many doujin planned for release, it’s hard to count all of them. Here’s what we have so far in no particular order.

  • Personal Color is releasing a doujin starring Yukari, Youmu and Yuyuko. It appears to be the first half a longer doujin.


  • Winter Scenery plans to release a doujin featuring the Scarlet Devil Mansion crew.

Winter Scenery

  • Hole of Yago will be selling a new doujin titled Metapo!!, featuring Alice and Marisa.



Many different groups are releasing a slew of new music, ranging from orchestral works to techno to any other genre you can possibly think of:

  • Alstroemeria Records is releasing a “Best Of” album featuring some of their best songs to date, including Bad Apple!!, Alice Maestra, Dreaming, and more, entitled “Exserens – A selection of Alstroemeria Records.” In addition, they will also be taking part in “Gossun-Remix 1”, a Marisa Stole the Precious Thing remix album produced by IOSYS. A demo of Exserens can be found on their website.
  • sisimai-brothers is releasing a new album entitled 東方冬風雪灯.
  • UI-70 is releasing a new CD, titled Riddles Covered in Flowers.
  • ~xi-on~ is releasing an MoF only album, previously released at M3 2008 Spring.
  • TAMUSIC is releasing a new CD entitled Touhou Nocturnes for Pianoforte [Spirit].
  • Lime-Green is releasing three albums: an MoF Piano solo, MoF electro and EoSD electro.
  • Vn’dyk is releasing a new album entitled Ein Klang Multidimentional.
  • Masamitei is releasing a new album.
  • Style.S is selling a new CD; crossfade can be heard by clicking on the link.
  • Chocoa is releasing an album entitled ~Toho the First~
  • SJV-SC is releasing an album entitled Divit, first released at M3 2008 Spring.
  • Hobby Atelier Carrotwine is releasing an album titled —Rei— Gettenyahime.
  • mistbell is releasing a new album.
  • Silver Forest is also selling a new CD.
  • SOUND HOLIC is releasing two new CDs. You can hear samples of them here. (SOUND HOLIC is after Alstroemeria Records.)
  • SYNC.ART’s is coming out with a new CD as well.
  • IOSYS has three new CDs, a new original CD and two “Marisa Stole the Precious Thing” remixes that other circles are participating in.

Finally, a bit of sad news: Spiral Music will no longer be participating in Reitaisai 5. According to their blog, all data was lost or corrupted during a computer crash. The one track that was undamaged is available for free download on their site. They will, however, be participating in Comiket 74. We here at Gensokyo wish them the best of luck.

That is all we have for now. If you would like to be constantly updated, please feel free to check the forums.

    IOSYS is doing some stuff with Locker Room Studios among a bunch of other known flash and music artists. It seems to be a collection of mini-games and music videos.

    Kishida Kyoudan & the Venus Rockets is releasing a new CD: “Electric Blue”

    Innocent Key is releasing a new album too, in which the famous “meido niso paddo chou” song is on. and for the song in question.

    Yellow Zebra is releasing 2 albums: “Touhou Kensaika -Touch of Air-” continuing their usual stuff, and “Touhou Association” which seems to have new vocalists? (Didn’t heard it a lot though.)

    That’s all I remember for now…

    Typo above:
    “Akatsuki Dou” should be “Asatsuki Dou”

    > “any other genre you can possibly think of”
    Afrobeat, trip hop, tango, baroque, raï, gamelan, minimalism, and more? Hooray!

    Flowering Night 2008 DVD is being released too. Look forward to it.

    CROW’S CLAW are releasing a new album called “Crossfire Barrage”. Hooray!

    IRON ATTACK and Kissing the Mirror are doing a double release: “BLADE OF ANCIENT TEMPLE” and “Scythe for the Guilty Riversides”.

    REDALiCE and DJ-Technetium are also doing a double release, “Fanatic Hardcore” red label and black label.

    MyonMyon releasing “蓬莱姫譚”…a lot of rock arrangements coming this time now, which is awesome.

    More rock with pizuya releasing “SYMMETRY BURZUM”. This circle was behind “Eternal Circle 9” so if you heard it you should know what to expect.

    AZURE&SANDS big releases are “TOHO JAZZ 2008” and “マサミカウトガリア” (Masamikautogaria?). Good news for jazz fans at least.

    RED-SIGHT commented that they don’t have anything new to release in this Reitaisai. Too bad. :(

    >>”Asatsuki Dou will be releasing a doujin entitled Happy End, about Koakuma and Patchouli”

    boo to the MoF bombs. I want unique bombs for each character!

    I’ve got news on my blog as well (just check the website link for more info since SWR infos come in by the day)

    Touhou Dai Udoukai is also present. Looks like a party fight game as Tenka Seiha says. Touhou Chinkara Hou!, a game that seems to be about shooting up Marisa’s skirt. What? Bloomer fanservice game? THIS IS GREAT! Lion Heart (of Touhou Rekkaden fame) is up with Mystical Chain: 体験版2, a 2-way 4-way royal rumble game, using a horizontal interface. And last for now is Weaving the Blue Orient, a horizontal shmup by ELField.

    As for SWR, new playable characters are currently Sakuya, Youmu and Patchouli

    Looks like a really good line up so far, looking forward to ~xi-on~, Tako and Hawian’s Store stuff… and of course SWR and TH11.

    This doujin line up looks good very promising. I’m especially wanting to see Happy End.
