Stella Glow: Did you know? (Titles of BGM)

It was recently found out by coincidence, but if you go to Jasrac's website
http://www2.jasrac.or.jp/eJwid/main.jsp?trxID=F00100
and type in ステラグロウ (the Japanese title) into the product name box, it will bring out the registered BGM for the game that Jasrac owns(?)
Since there is no soundtrack or in-game music room, this was actually the first time people found out the official names for the titles of the BGM.

That said, there is nothing that indicates what the BGM is for, as the only information is the title. Though some can be guessed. Here they are:\

PS: Sometimes the font goes weird because I copied the text and Blogger did stuff with that font
PPS: I might organize this in a better documented manner tomorrow or so

UPDATE: Added documented version of BGM titles. Please click to enlarge

Monster Hunter Cross: Various Changes of Monsters

One of those "I'm not dead" posts, since I haven't posted in a month. Just busy playing Monster Hunter and not really anything to say. Still waiting for info on Etrian Odyssey 5.
Anyways, I just wanted to write down some changes I've seen for monsters, be it from 4G -> Cross, Low Rank to High Rank, Ferocious.
Feriocious' speed change and changes only in the animation are not included.

Monster Hunter X: Solo Run Finished!

As in, defeating the HR7 boss that unlocks your Hunter Rank. Up until that point, every quest I cleared was cleared by myself, even the ones in the party hall. I prepared quite a bit for the final boss by raising my armor's defense to over 550.
So my armor choices throughout my runthrough...

Monster Hunter X: Well, that was the closest I've gotten to time-out quest failing...

11 seconds left. I didn't see Lagia drag his legs, but I realized there was only like 30 seconds left, so I chanced my last trap that I was saving for this moment and thankfully, he was weakened enough to be captured.
I had a bad feeling about fighting three berserk monsters in one quest, but yeah... Somehow managed to get through.

Toushin Toshi: Extra Talk

NSFW, BTW. Mainly because I'm putting some of the CG in the post.
Comparisons with the original, talk about the CG, about the characters, about how evil the protagonist could be in the original, such

Toushin Toshi: Review

While Stella Glow is the last game Image Epoch created, Toushin Toshi is the last game they released (as Stella Glow ended up being released by Sega).
Now, this game was actually released almost 2 years ago. But after playing Stella Glow and learning about this game, I realized that if I don't take the opportunity to get this game now, it will be forever lost because Image Epoch's bankruptcy means the E-Shop no longer sells this AND there will be no longer any restocks. So I got it.
The Image Epoch president talked about how they spent quite the money creating the game, and after playing, I kind of see why.

BTW, this game is actually the remake of Toushin Toshi 2, by Alice Soft. However, the original is an eroge (R-18) AND was made 20 years ago, so there are quite a number of differences. I'll do some extra talking in a separate post.

New Games!! ( ゚∀゚)

Two exclamation marks because two games. Well, to be exact, I got Toushin Toshi (right) a while back and have already started playing it, but for no particular reason, have not written anything about it. I have completed one route and will write some thoughts later.
Although it is probably hard to find, I definitely would suggest buying the game if you can get your hands on it. JP only, BTW.

And of course, Monster Hunter Cross. Managed to complete 1 route of Toushin Toshi just in time Monster Hunter getting delivered to me.
