Review is actually extremely good. The central thesis is strong and really portrays this album well. Pos'd.

It's not very long, only two volumes are out and only the first has been translated (although it is a year old now at this point so maybe not)

You should check out two of her other works too, Oyasumi Punpun and Solanin

Checked out 海辺の女の子. Really good, but like you said - short. I'm in the process of reading おやすみプンプン right now and it's freaking weird, but I like it.

one pregunta, though - why's the interlude the second to last track? i mean it fits stylistically between the two tracks, but seems out of place at the end

i put it there because it's a bit of a breather between the ending of Empress' onslaught and the beginning of the title track, which is, for me, the most emotional part of the album. it's less an interlude than it is kind of a preparation piece for the final ride of the record. also, i included the [interlude]'s sample on the record in the first place because it's a highly emotionally affecting piece to me and I wanted to give it a bit of a highlight near the end of the record. and thematically, it mirrors the other FFVI sample that starts the record (in [Quickening]) so the FFVI samples act as bookends of sorts

aaaaah okay i can dig it. i didn't know that was a ffvi sample but hearing it again i can hear the FF
signature sound. i'll admit i didn't pick up on the chaotic end of empress since my listening style
tends to be more "whole" rather than "specific section", so maybe that's why it didn't quite click for
me. so far i am digging the lonely city / heartbreak / grime-y vibe of Forgotten You the most of the
the record (or at least that's what i hear in it)

i've actually heard it described in a very similar manner before multiple times, that's very interesting

idk how to describe/explain it exactly but i definitely picture something like a rainy, dark night in a dystopian city and sorta just let the thought go from there when i hear it
