Hello /mg/. Long time no talk.
I made this mixtape on the occasion for Torahiko's birthday today. It's something I've been planning for months and constantly reworking to get it right, but I'm quite happy with finishing it. I'm pretty out of right now, but here's my foreword included in the file:
"This mixtape is something I had wanted to do since we first collaborated in the /Morenatsu General/s several years ago. The plan was to do the rest of the 7 characters when the routes came out, but unfortunately the Morenatsu Project came to its demise, people dismissed the VN, hype died down, and it never came into fruition.
"The concept of this mixtape was originally to be 31 songs for each day of August, but it was difficult to create a playlist of songs that would keep the entire thing cohesive and, at least, barely, interesting to listen to. I found that digging into my own high school years of songs I listened to was really helpful. The truth is that it’s much easier working with a collection of songs from others than your own. I apologize in advance as I could not find translations for all the songs. Thank you very much to everyone who participated in the four other ones we made.
"Coming up with a mixtape for Torahiko had challenges to consider: 1) people interpret and like/hate him more differently than others. 2) There is little canon to take from his dialogue and interactions with the other characters and MC. More importantly 3) we never got to see him fully develop as a character showing his true colors to love or despise him in the end.
"In a way, it's a mixed blessing to leave the conclusions of Torahiko's canon to his fans that still cling on. I hope this crappy collection of songs brings some answers, spurns creative impulse into more mediums of artworks, and gives closure to the excitement of the Morenatsu Project we talked about not too long ago."
I still owe you guys the other one. I haven't forgot.
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
