Yes and it’s my favorite as well.


This was going to be my first choice. I'd also throw out a few stage themes from Viewpoint:

Yes, it's all vocal samples, and such, but it's just such a good OST. Same for R-Type LEO. "3, 2, 1, let's go!" at the beginning of each song isn't much, but it's enough for me to try and low-key include it :D

Honorable mention to Otomedius Excellent's "Fly" - great track.

I agree with Otomedius as well. And the Viewpoint music is kinda funny because it contains James Brown samples, especially the boss theme.

Another vote for Fly from me.

My number one is Heading For Tomorrow, the ending theme from Saidaioujo story mode. It fits the scene really well.

I don't really think if them as vocal themes, but Violent Ruler's track from DBCS is the best final boss music I've ever heard.

Also I'll just leave this here:

My favorite vocal scrolling shooter theme is Sex Pervert of a Silence from Karous.

Gonna be honest. That music really makes me emotional inside. I actually broke down after clearing Saidaioujou for the first time.

The song so nice Fujino used it twice! I'm not sure if the full version on the Trizeal soundtrack is entirely in-game, but it is a great version of the song. That version has some extra solos/vocal parts but it might just be a bonus arrangement.

The Exzeal version has a cooler, spacey intro. :D
