And yet another change of plans on today’s OST focus: Since the latest episode of that series was just released, we have a look at the first of the original tunes made for Fragmented Memories, yet another animated series created by VanishingSVST, although it’s in Walfas-style for a change. We look at the theme of Geniece Moriana, sadistic psychopath and the series’ main antagonist, With Evil Intentions.
The song appeared in the 4th episode of Fragmented Memories. The video features the battle scene from the episode along with some artwork for Geniece:
The tune is supposed to sound evil and powerful, but it’s also quite catchy I think. It’s actually one of the few original songs I made by now. If you like it, there’s a bit more like that on the OST page!
Next time on OST focus, we should finally switch to Luigi’s Terrific Quest, I’m actually working on a more interesting Main Theme at the moment. As for the next upload, I decided to work on the winner of the Touhou voting, Suwa Foughten Field. After that we’ll likely have some Legend of Zelda, I have quite a few ideas for that.
Today on OST focus we have something awesome: the Encounter, Battle and the Danger (last Pokémon) theme of my avatar, Joe Ximer, as he appears in the animated series created by VanishingSVST, The Masters of Pokémon. Have you tried reading Joe’s last name backwards?
Like the important trainers of this series, Joe has an Encounter theme, a Battle theme (both made with primarily Pokémon B2/W2 instruments) and a Danger theme for his last Pokémon, his trusted Pinsir “Prince”. And the Danger theme starts with the cry of that signature Pokémon.
That Pinsir is actually quite nostalgic. Since back in the days of Pokémon Red and Blue I had a Pinsir I called Prince. Admittedly, it wasn’t very competitive back then, but I’m very happy that it got a much better moveset (and even a Mega Evolution!) in recent versions. All the other Pokémon of Joe’s team have a nickname related to music. I even built a team based on that in Pokémon X, it consists of
Although I put a lot of effort into that team, it’s not very competitive~ (much like Joe himself…)
Joe’s design was heavily inspired by Shikieiki and Okuu from the Touhou series. In a similar fashion, his themes were inspired by Shikieiki’s theme Fate of 60 Years (Touhou 9: Phantasmagoria of Flower View), Miko’s theme True Administrator (Touhou 13: Ten Desires) and most importantly Miror B.’s theme (Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness).
Encounter! Joe Ximer only has Miror B.’s theme and a cool beat. You’ll instantly know, Joe is in da house:
Battle! Joe Ximer already includes all of the aforementioned tunes and sounds like Joe’s ready to rock:
Danger! Joe Ximer is a full-scale remix of his Battle theme. It focuses more on True Administrator than the Battle theme and Fate of Sixty Years is included more subtly. As a present, I’ll even add an exclusive download this time:
The video features the Pokémon battle from episode 5 along with some awesome artwork. Did Joe win the battle? You’ll need to find out by watching the full battle (and while you’re there, the whole episode) I’m afraid X3
As usual, if you like it, I’d advise you to check out the OST page for more. Did you know that I’m actually responsible for what Joe says in the series? Just so he behaves like he should. Except for the battles, though; I only give some ideas there X3
Next time on OST focus, I’ll show you….I can’t tell yet! I’ve already started working on the next song though, you know, this year’s Halloween mix! It might include some familiar and some not so familiar tunes. And while I call it Night of the Werewolf (which is a reference to last year’s Halloween mix Night of the Dullahan), there actually won’t be that much (were)wolf-related tunes…
Today on OST focus we switch to another series: The Masters of Pokémon, another animated series created by VanishingSVST. This time we look at the Encounter and the Battle theme of a mysterious character who calls himself Lane.
Usually the important trainers of this series will have an Encounter theme, a Battle theme (both made with primarily Pokémon B2/W2 instruments) and a Danger theme for their last Pokémon (basically a remix of the Battle theme). This one is a bit different though. He only uses one Pokémon to test Kayla, the series’ main protagonist. So there was no need for a Danger theme. However, due to the importance of the character, his themes are not made with Pokémon B2/W2 instruments.
The video features the Pokémon battle from episode 2 along with some artwork. Maybe you’ll even notice a subtle change in the artwork during the video:
I tried to make the song sound very epic and for that purpose included Oath to Order from The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask and Brahman from Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 2. It certainly stands out. As usual, if you like it, I’d advise you to check out the OST page for more. Although that would be spoilers for future OST Focus posts~
Next time on OST focus, I’ll show you one of my favorites so far, Battle! Joe Ximer. That’s right. Looks like my avatar has made it into this series…and as a comical character no less! I hope to be able to finish the final crossover until next Sunday, although time’s a bit short, because…you know, Smash Bros. and such~
