Second boss, Ringo’s theme. According to the Touhou wiki…

Stage 2 Boss: The Orange Eagle Ravi

Ringo

Species: Moon rabbit
Ability: Capable of becoming stronger by eating dango

Amongst the members of the “Eagle Ravi” Earth investigation corps,
she has the rather leisurely position of information management.
Despite how easy her job is, it’s fairly high-ranking.

Perhaps because she’s been gathering information, she’s taken an interest in the Earth’s surface.
Her only duty is to investigate.
She’s permitted to fight, but it’s said there’s no need for her to actually win.

What an amazing ability.

When I read this song’s name in the screenshots, I was kinda expecting something fairly unmemorable and happy. I… was definitely not expecting something as cool as this. Ringo also surprised me by being more difficult than I expected right off the bat. I wasn’t sure I’d really like her design, but seeing her and Seiran as military partners is kinda rad.

Also, “Eagle Ravi”… I know the Lunarians think of the moon landing like it was a war or an attack… So they named their own expedition force the Eagle so the Eagle would land in reverse? Hmmm.

Yet another amazing track from LoLK.

I like this chill song.

First boss, Seiran’s theme. According to the touhou wiki translation of the accompanying files;

Stage 1 Boss: The Pale Blue Eagle Ravi

Seiran

Species: Moon rabbit
Ability: Capable of firing bullets from other dimensions

A literal cannonball.
Among the members of the “Eagle Ravi” Earth investigation corps,
she has the most dangerous job: covert operations.
Despite how dangerous her job is, it doesn’t pay much.
All the moon rabbits can communicate via telepathy,
but she never holds a serious conversation.
It seems she was attacked by surprise as she was making mochi for her comrades while on break.

The name, of course, is a reference to “The Eagle has landed.” Also, mochi confirmed, no blood today kids.

My friend notes the Imperishable Night style brass has returned! Fitting, no?
