It’s the transcriber’s link, not sure if he/she meant for it to be private or not. I updated the post with a working link.
Updated link to the file!
Piano solo version. Using Google Drive now, so clicking on the link gives a preview before you choose to download!
Not for the piano alone, because the original (piano + vocal) sounds too good together! When I try to play solo piano (sheets @ http://snomits.net/sheets.php?x=instrumental):
Right hand -> vocal line
Left hand -> select stuff from the bass or treble clef of the piano staff.
It’s a lot tougher to do that on the fly vs having sheets just for the piano. One could arrange the song for solo piano, but I don’t have one like that.
Oh riight, Sakurane! I know I failed to find any a long time ago when the song first came out. I just did a search again a min ago and didn’t find any sheets for the ballad version. Really? I thought someone would have made sheets for this? If not… I will!?
I had quite a few questions about Karakuri Pierrot, just replying to this one so I don’t have tons of posts about the same thing. I just uploaded sheets for koman’s version at http://snomits2.tumblr.com Hurrah! Thanks for the ask everyone!
This is an old message. But I’m going to respond to it anyway to say: I really ought to spend more time trying to translate again. It kinda comes in waves. Hopefully I can push another one this year. :)
They are fan transcriptions. Most if not all are from a Nico Nico community. One needs to join it to get the download links. For sure his sheets are tough to find!
Googling. Look up the title in English and Japanese. Sometimes throw stuff like “zip” as a keyword in the search. Sometimes I throw a “site:mediafire.com” for example to just search mediafire links. I don’t have any particular site.
My last post here was 6 months ago…? Wow. Dang. Hmm. I’m still alive!
Omigosh. My mail inbox icon again has not lit up to show I have unread messages. Or maybe I checked it once and it stopped lighting up, but I didn’t actually have time to go through it, I don’t know!
m(_ _)m I’ll start responding to some messages.
Battle Cats. For a free Android game, it’s very presentable. A tower defence game of sorts where you send out your weirdass-Cats to raze the enemy’s base. Also, if you get enough of the premium currency (“cat food”), Samurai-, Ninja-, Sumo-Cats. Even God-Cat.
About God-Cat. I just thought, “Eh, what the hell, I want to see what it looks like.” But once you get it (by spending cat food), you can only activate it by using more cat food, so relish its one free use. ‘Cause seeing God-Cat. Worth it.
You get enough crazy cats when they level and evolve. Then things get strange, and you realize that something must be said about you being the leader of all these oddities.
There are a lot of unlockables including a dictionary or “Enemy Picture Book”. Whoever wrote these had a field day. Like apparently it was really, absolutely necessary to mention the hippo is bisexual. The elephant, the moth - even if you don’t play the game, you should look up the dictionary entries.
It’s a simple game but well done. Also, Cow-Cat’s Forever Alone head = perfect match! Yep, visuals are perfect as they are.
I only got Farm Story to get gems on another Team Lava game. Therefore purely aiming for xp while being an antisocial hermit avoiding commitment. Surely for the sake of all my would-be neighbours/followers who would tear their little hearts out once I delete this game.
Newbie thought process:
- Optimize for XP. Strawberries = 1xp/5min? As good as it gets.
- Get a sheep because I’m sure there is some analogy akin to watching paint dry and pots boil that applies to watching plants grow.
- Like any good “power gamer” (I-I’m not! or that apple tree and sheep’d be long gone, definitive proof), must break even a casual game by filling the entire plot of land with strawberries. Sheep doesn’t even move? … Sell that useless fence shit. I’m actually a little disappointed, because even the white pixel sheep blotches in SimFarm 15 years ago moved around.
- Gold building up because a fat total of 0 items in the catalogue gives more xp than strawberries? Buy lanterns for the xp, then sell. Because lanterns only take up 1/3 or 1/4 of a square! More room for crops.
- Bask in the most realistic Ultimate Farming Experience.
It only took a few mins, but I calculated xp/gold for decorations and at my piddly level there are a few top choices, but lanterns take the least space.
I have some corn or whatever growing too for the times I’m not harvesting every 5 freaking mins. I actually looked up this strawberry strat later to see if other people did this, because it “breaks” what should be your beautiful farm. Of course loads of people do it. Of course.
Strawberry Fields Forever ♬
I’ve had a Google Nexus 7 in the house for a while but it’s not mine. Lately, I’ve been commandeering it more often. It’s a great Android tablet for anyone looking for one. Snappy. Just wish it had expandable memory.
So my next slew of random posts is going to be about this foray into Android gaming lewl. Because I’m going to be busy with work for the next while, I won’t be doing much of my regular updates (translations, sheet music posts, transcriptions). I’ve actually put transcribing on the back burner for years now… shoot. I just haven’t been playing the piano as often to get into finding or making more sheets.
But I still wanted to post things, so there.
New manga: Puzzle
Original novel by Yamada Yuusuke and illustrated by Sanbe Kei. I really like Sanbe Kei’s works, even if endings have been kinda weak so far. Lots of survival themes and suspense/mystery. There is also a 2007 Japanese drama adaptation of Puzzle.
Description from d-wiki: When an armed group seizes control of an elite high school, a group of classmates are forced to find 2,000 puzzle pieces hidden throughout the school within 48 hours.
Sound exciting? I hope so! Here’s chapter 1!
