Play the way you want to play, with your own music, and share your creations with others.


Announcing a brand new Monthly Beatmapping Contest - with a twist! All restrictions are gone, bar an essential few. Do anything you like, however you like, with one exception - it must be playable at the end of it all! We call it: Aspire!

The Ranking Charts for June 2014 have just been released and can be found here! Along with that, we want to introduce you some changes to make the Monthly Ranking Charts more attractive for everyone!

The judging is finally complete - and a clear winner has been chosen. With the another perfect score awarded and one of the largest number of entries yet, MBC #5 has been utterly full of surprises!

Hello again! The results are finally in for the second official osu! fanart contest! It was very interesting seeing people take this fairly open-ended theme in different directions, and even more interesting to see how those different directions were reflected in the voting results.
