surreal ->
01:37:401 (1,2) - space the slider ends slightly further from the start for maximum symettry and a bit better flow.
02:00:067 (5,6) - Consider turning into 2 notes, not really a held vocal
02:17:734 (2,3) - Fix blanket plssss

deep ->
01:34:067 (3,1) - why does this note not go directly over the slider bodyyyyy
01:37:401 (1) - remove nc

nice map my GUY <3

N = normal/nitpick | B = blanket | Q = questionable

general: u hitsounded but no whistles wtf
also there is more than 20% of song that isn't mapped and while it should be fine logically that's against the RC or whatever because "ugh file size"

Q 00:46:067 (2) - i think this should be a repeat slider and then note but idk
N 01:34:734 (1,2) - needz more CURVE
Q 01:46:734 (2,3) - ugly angle comparison (this might be better)
N 02:22:734 (1,2) - did u not see rrtyui twitter post?? use centered red point or wide S shape it looks less weird
B 02:53:401 (2,3) - again can u not blanket

B 01:08:067 (1,2,3,4) - move down to blanket with 01:10:734 (1)
N 01:19:901 (3,4) - rotate 75 and then see if u can fix distance to next section
Q 01:26:734 (1,2,3) - pattern shape doesn't even complement song smh
N 01:49:734 (2,3,4,1) - there's a small jump in the middle (0.83 to 1.00) and you used literally only 1x for evrything else so you might want to fix that
N 03:17:734 (2,3,4,1) - not even a perfect triangel, isosceles is for nerds
N (general) why didn't you do the dense with the vocals in kiais? circle patterns are cool and all but you could have put a few short sliders in

N 01:32:067 (1) - UGLY
rest of map is cool af for dt probably and i'm not good enough at sleeping to mod

inb4 insane diff

17:57 Arphimigon: DEEP WASNT BELOW 2SR
17:57 Arphimigon: AND THAT MADE ME ANNOYED
17:57 Noffy: 03:18:734 (1) -  hello the last note is at 84.9% and therefore this MP3 IS UNRANKABLE AND MUST B CUT

18:03 Arphimigon: AFTER 1 SLIDR

18:04 Arphimigon: I CAN FIND A CHANGE
18:04 Noffy: it's just the 1/4 density + pause felt AWKWARD
18:04 Noffy: 00:41:067 (6,1,2) -  mayb reuse this rhythm
18:04 Noffy: but ok

18:05 Noffy: aa
18:06 Arphimigon: ye well in all the diffs the rhythm intentionally gets MUCH LESS DENSE

Deep Sleep:

My only concern here is the difficulty when comparing kiai vs other parts of the song.

The Kiai is supposed to be the most intense part of the song, and the mapping should represent that, But during the Kiai in this difficulty, the map is the least dense and therefore, the least difficult. Except for parts like 02:06:734 (1,2) - my statement is completely true ( I think )

I think that you should increase the density of the map during kiai to more accurately represent the intensity of that portion.

For example ( just a suggestion ) you could map to the lyrics during Kiai because the drum noises the map is currently alligned to doesn't make for mapping intense enough to represent the song. The lyrics have lots of 1/4 and 1/2 rhythms that could intensify the kiai that the drums don't provide.

You could still map to the instruments when there arent lyrics of course, for example 01:37:401 (1) - Directly after this object there are some 1/4 drum sounds that you could represent with a slider or maybe even 2 circles, a concept that could be unique to the kiai maybe

This is just my opinion PM me for clarification or anything,

nice map!

Kiais don't need to be the most dense *table flip*

to elaborate a bit, I mean the kiai should be the most memorable part of the map, whether you do this with density, jumps, slider art/velocity, or something it should stand out and be remembered, Similar to how a chorus is the most memorable part of a song

I've done the kiais with just that in mind!
Each individual slider and note has MUCH more punch and meaning, whilst the rest of the map everything is more stringed together as a bunch of sounds.
(also there's lots of cute slider art and stuff in top diff)

I've purposely reduced the density in every difficulty so I could make each hit mean more, with large gaps but more time between each one. I think it follows along nicely with how the song also does the same in the choruses.
