Syrufit

Izayoi Sakuya / show me your love

「お久しぶり」を言っているのは毎回になっているじゃないかと思い始めているが、歴とした理由がこれと言った感じゃないから更に申し訳ないなーと思っている反面、我が身が腐っていくのが感じ取っているわー。物理的も精神的もそうだが、最後に鏡に映ったイメージはゾンビのそれだったが今更何かと訊いてもなー。

頭の中の幻想が足りなくなっているだけの話だよ。

Speaking of the undead. There’s been a saying going along that of which the gist of is this: “If we mourn for Syrufit as if they’re dead, maybe just maybe they’ll jump right back out at us with angry faces and a, ‘We’re not dead yet!’ resuming the manufacturing of music we all love and miss.” – to which I say “Great, let’s be nostalgic and listen to some Syrufit!”

What was the first song I came across those attempting to resurrect Syrufit?

我亲爱傀儡 / Wǒ Qīn’ài Guīlěi / Wa ga Shin’ai naru Kairai

…but of course, that’s Shibayan, not Syrufit.

If Syrufit’s in the grave I think they just pulled the blanket over their heads again.

…now I love 我亲爱傀儡 even though I can’t properly pronounce it, using the kan’bun’ reading (last one) instead of the Chinese. What would be best would be to investigate how it would be said in 霍青娥娘々/Seiga Nyan-Nyan’s time, but right now that’s not so important. Kwairai (我亲爱傀儡) is a guest track on a Syrufit album, just like アモリタチテカミトミユ is.

Syrufit / Studio “Syrup Comfiture” is:
hiro.na – “Syrufit”: Arrange, Guitar, Mixing, Mastering, Lyrics, Project
TAK-sk – “Poplica*”: Arrange, Synthesizer Manipulation
(SHIKI – Vocal, Lyrics, Chorus)

Only the early works name hiro.na/TAK-sk – collectively called “Syrufit” for an album or two, but after C77 they were renamed Syrufit(=hiro.na) and Poplica*(=TAK-sk). SHIKI was last recorded as part of Syrufit/Studio “Syrup Comfiture” as of C79.

Let’s not forget, also, that Syrufit was around before they started publishing their own albums, as Syrufit/Anipix.

If you want to hear hiro.na singing, look no further than Sensitive Moment, 墨染亡我郷.

Anyway, let us put it up for one of the world’s worst DJ’s (referencing a DJ session with REDALiCE and Masayoshi Minoshima), and a group we hope comes back to the Doujin Touhou Arranged Music scene.

Here are a few tracks that I recommend if you haven’t listened to yet.

Unrelated, I promise to be not-dead for RTS.

    Yes… I love you, Kafka-sensei! Not only all these great translations & notes on classical Japanese, but now an appeal for my favourite group to come back… I appreciate so much of what you do here. Thank you.
