Tsunku♂ - Beautiful One Day
G-Mixer - Timekeeper [Quartz Quadrant JP]


Honorary Mention:
Snarky Puppy - Lingus (Live Ver.)
Oh no, I'm getting torn!



Anyway, my choices are:
  1. Chamy & Chisa Yokoyama - Dream Girl (from Galaxy Fräulein Yuna)
    (It's short and sweet—you'll gotta LOVE it!)
  2. G-Mixer - Timekeeper [Quartz Quadrant JP]
    (OH, COME ON! How many people don't like Sonic remixes?)

And here's an interesting background about the Galaxy Fräulein Yuna series: In the early '90s, Mika Akitaka, an artist known for his mecha designs in anime series (Zeta Gundam, ZZ Gundam, Gundam 0080: War in the Pocket, Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory, and more recently Gundam The Origin), was making a bunch of Gundam designs in the form of cute anime girls wearing power armor, known as "MS Girls". One such design in particular, his rendition of Gundam F91, caught the attention of video game studios Red Company and Hudson Soft, who wanted to turn the character into an original video game IP. Thus the Galaxy Fräulein Yuna franchise was created.

Although what was originally planned as a shooting game for the NEC PC-Engine, Galaxy Fräulein Yuna was ultimately reworked into a visual novel—or what was referred to as a "digicomic". The first entry in the series was released on October 23, 1992 for the NEC PC-Engine Super CD-ROM² add-on. It would then see a re-release in 1995 with a newly included HuVIDEO disc containing an animated commercial and concept art as part of a promotion for the release of Galaxy Fräulein Yuna 2: Princess of Eternity.

OF COURSE, they won't stop Akitaka from luring out of Hudson's 'quarters, they decided produce a shooting game that what could have ever been before: Ginga Fukei Densetsu Sapphire, released in November 24, 1995. With prices fetching well currently above $1,000 on the secondhand market, this game has becoming one of the rarest video games in all time, thus considered to be the crown "jewel" of many a PC-Engine collector.

I know if Westerners really knew about Yuna via the OVA series, which received a somewhat improbable international release through A.D. Vision. There are two OVA series based on the games, comprising a total of five episodes. The second series was notably directed by the same individual that would go on to make the well-regarded Madoka Magica franchise.

And Sakura Wars fans, better get a load of this: Galaxy Fräulein Yuna features the talent of seiyuu Chisa Yokoyama, or might know her as the voice of Sakura Shinguji from the Sakura Wars series (btw, she's also the voice of Sasami from Tenchi Muyo!). Coincidentally, aside from working on Yuna, Red Company also co-developed with SEGA for Sakura Wars, and that's the reason why Chisa Yokoyama is included in the series. (As Amitie from Puyo Puyo said, "You betcha!")

The Yuna series ran strong through the late '90s, eventually culminating in its best-known and best-regarded game: Galaxy Fräulein Yuna 3: Lightning Angel, released in December 4, 1997 for the SEGA Saturn, ported to the PlayStation the following year as Galaxy Fräulein Yuna: Final Edition. The franchise petered out soon after, with little activity since aside from sporadic re-releases of existing material, but it remains a fond memory for many.

FUN FACT: Yuna Kagurazaka actually appears in ONE localized Hudson Soft title, Saturn Bomberman... as an unlockable character in the game's multiplayer mode. Heck, even Bomberman makes a cameo appearance in the first Galaxy Fräulein Yuna game... as a swimsuit judge!



I hope you guys finished my backstory behind it. Either way, stay peachy!

(Also: Rest in peace, Koichi Sugiyama, the guy who composed a bunch of Dragon Quest music. You will be missed, good sir.)

Here are my thoughts about this set :

Chamy & Chisa Yokoyama - Dream Girl (very good but old style anime music)
Tsunku♂ - Beautiful One Day (i actually enjoyed it!)
múm - Green Grass of Tunnel (this song is good but sadly not my type)
Snarky Puppy - Lingus (Live Ver.) (I appreciate all the effort done into this. Very awesome and cool. Sadly again, not my type)
Linea Aspera - Synapse (i'm so sorry but NO!)
Pedro Silva - BREADY STEADY GO (it sounded like a halloween theme music for me. Sadly not the kind that i would enjoy)
Peter Hajba - Scatterbrain (NO again)
G-Mixer - Timekeeper [Quartz Quadrant JP] (i dont play sonic but i enjoyed this)




My pics are clear now:
1- G-Mixer - Timekeeper [Quartz Quadrant JP]
2- Tsunku♂ - Beautiful One Day



Best of luck and stay peachy.
Snarky Puppy - Lingus (Live Ver.)
Pedro Silva - BREADY STEADY GO
Snarky Puppy - Lingus (Live Ver.)
Peter Hajba - Scatterbrain (both of these are good picks, not personal favorites but very listenable)

honorable mention to Beautiful One Day, maybe would've voted sonic if it was the original
Snarky Puppy - Lingus (Live Ver.)

Peter Hajba - Scatterbrain
I couldn't find anything to write :| By the way my Youtube channel
Snarky Puppy - Lingus (Live Ver.)
Peter Hajba - Scatterbrain

Timekeeper was also pretty good, and Beautiful One Day was pretty solid.
múm - Green Grass of Tunnel
Snarky Puppy - Lingus (Live Ver.)
My picks for this go round are...
  • Snarky Puppy - Lingus (Live Ver.)
  • Pedro Silva - BREADY STEADY GO
Tsunku♂ - Beautiful One Day
Someday, you'll find yourself and realize that you're beautiful.
Chamy & Chisa Yokoyama - Dream Girl
Very cute!! The vocals are kind of slightly off-key in parts, but that gives it a nice vintage charm.


Linea Aspera - Synapse
I love synths. This sounds very nice and 80s. (Honorable mention to this one.)
G-Mixer - Timekeeper [Quartz Quadrant JP]
Original Quartz Quadrant JP easily would've been at the top for me, but I feel like this remix tries too hard, and loses a lot of the charm the original has. Still good in its own right I guess.
Pedro Silva - BREADY STEADY GO
Circus music.
múm - Green Grass of Tunnel
Cute, but takes a while to get started, and is also a bit unsettling in parts. Good for a steady background song.
Snarky Puppy - Lingus (Live Ver.)
Not to be confused with Bingus. Not sure what to say about this one, it just kind of... is. The song has some generally nice parts, though I'm kind of whatever about the general vibe.
Peter Hajba - Scatterbrain
Definitely has some vibes, but feels a bit empty in the end. Not a fan of the vocal samples.
Peter Hajba - Scatterbrain
Snarky Puppy - Lingus (Live Ver.)
múm - Green Grass of Tunnel | múm are iconic and i'm happy to see them here. good song.
Linea Aspera - Synapse | admittedly kind of a sucker for lady vocaled minimal synth music actually so this is all sorts of up my alley.


Chamy & Chisa Yokoyama - Dream Girl | it's fine. i mean i don't really like it, but it it's here and it's a thing.
Tsunku♂ - Beautiful One Day | (hears two j-pop songs in a row) wow is it j-pop hour of what haha
Snarky Puppy - Lingus (Live Ver.) | this is kinda like cute dream theater. reading the title i was hoping it was skinny puppy though.
Pedro Silva - BREADY STEADY GO | well composed, not interesting to me.
Peter Hajba - Scatterbrain | good and no other comments.
G-Mixer - Timekeeper [Quartz Quadrant JP] | got bored :x

The handomest people in the world are ones who follow my Twitch
1. Snarky Puppy - Lingus (Live Ver.) (my nomination. god I love this so much btw, especially the keyboard solo in particular; like, the entire thing is amazing, but that solo man... it's so good that it's almost criminal, can't help but laugh out loud every time it comes by while listening to it, cuz it's so ridiculously good haha)

2. Peter Hajba - Scatterbrain (honestly, I love Skaven's music and have a ton of nostalgia for it since Bejeweled Twist in particular is a game I played a lot as a child and is the source to a lot of fond memories for me, so I miiiiiiight be a little biased here... but I really couldn't give a damn LOL; plus, it's pretty cool ambient music, and I'm especially a sucker for this kind in particular, so meh, whatever lmao)




3. múm - Green Grass of Tunnel (nice and sweet song, and honestly I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected, but yeah, you know what I'm going to say lol)

4. Linea Aspera - Synapse (welp, I'm a sucker for 80s synths and anything that resembles synthwave, so this is right up my alley, but yeah, something something not good enough or something)

5. G-Mixer - Timekeeper [Quartz Quadrant JP] (cool, but not good enough. next)

6. Pedro Silva - BREADY STEADY GO (hmm, well this is interesting frantic sounding french bakery robbery oh-no-someone-took-all-the-bread type of chase music lol; but yeah,)

7. Chamy & Chisa Yokoyama - Dream Girl (it's fine)

8. Tsunku♂ - Beautiful One Day (it's fine)

1. Snarky Puppy - Lingus (Live Ver.): This was a great performance. Since I'm interested in audio engineering so I was really enthralled by the entire room and how they set things up. I'm a sucker for horns so they were definitely my favorite part of the track. That keyboard solo though...

2. Chamy & Chisa Yokoyama - Dream Girl: Fun little tune. Can't go wrong with an anime song. I found myself listening to it a few times, haha.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Tsunku♂ - Beautiful One Day: Upbeat and poppy. Made me wanna do some dancing.

múm - Green Grass of Tunnel: This makes me wish I lived out in the woods where I could hike and live in peace and quiet for all time. Just listening to this song.

Linea Aspera - Synapse: This song sounds large thanks to the reverb. But there isn't much happening with instruments or sounds. It's good for what it is, but I could have done with more keyboard, to be honest.

Pedro Silva - BREADY STEADY GO: Fast paced and energetic. The strings really tie this song together. However the distorted drums near the end was a bit of a turn off for me, personally.

Peter Hajba - Scatterbrain: Deep and pensive. I enjoyed it for what it was. Definitely the kind of music I'd fall asleep to, or study to.

G-Mixer - Timekeeper [Quartz Quadrant JP]: The kind of electronic music that I've been into since I was in high school. Really like the synth and keyboard.
