Namco Taiko Blog (16 June 2011) - 10 years of Taiko/2nd poll results


...do you remember the 2nd survey for the 10th Taiko anniversary, aired right after the song sequel poll? The survey, named "Taiko Memories - With laughter, with tears and iron drumsticks", asked to Taiko fans to decide the most memorable songs of the entire Taiko history. Wanna hear the winners?

1) Saitama 2000 (さいたま2000)

...seriously, have you ever had doubts about this? The eldest member of the extinct (?) Nisen series has reached the higher place in Taiko fans's hearts. Even after years since its release, Saitama 2000 has still the same magnetic fashion, with its reversed messages and the famous Don-Katsu Chitai, the Go-Go Time part of the song.

2) The Carnivorous Carnival

Another Namco Original hits the podium, and for the 2nd time, it's beause of a techno song! As the "demonic" version of Angel Dream, The Carnivorous Carnival achieved soon high popularity!

3) Angel Dream (エンジェル ドリーム)

Speaking of the Angel series, it's kinda funny to state that Angel Dream has an high rank also on this survey! After winning the previous "Namco Original sequel" poll, the masterpiece of the MONACA no Okabedesu duo has earned a bronze medal in ths survey!

We also have the names of the positions from 4th to 10th:

  4. Agree with Zekira. How can Caramelldansen NOT be in the top 3... (Yawaraka Densha totally deserves first though.)

    None of my favourites in Game Music, Anime or Classic (except Kare Kano Kanon).

  5. What I most disagree is the Classic one, Hakuchou no Mizuumi ~still a duckling~ is one of the worst classic songs of taiko no tatsujin. =/
