Hi there, M4M here via your queue.
My map https://osu.ppy.sh/s/297170
all of them here are just suggestion^^
|1|2|3|4
sorry for my bad english ><"
* Delete Julian, Smith from tags because it already on the title.
* Delete " , " from your tags, because it is unnecessary. Use space is enough.
* If you just make a 4K mapset, please delete 4K from your difficulties name.
* Your BG resolution should be 1366 x 768 or 1024 x 768
* I suggest to change the diff name to Children's Book [EZ] , Comic Book [NM] , etc.
* * Also i suggest to put your kiai time (it is for reff) on 00:34:500 until 00:53:100 - if you don't know how to do it, just pm or poke me in game^^
* 00:07:500 (7500|0) - i suggest to change this pattern into note and follows the drum and piano sound :3 i think it would better. hihi.
* 00:07:800 - if you accept that ^, please add note here for piano
* 00:08:400 - ^
* 00:09:000 - ^
* 00:09:600 - ^
* 00:08:100 - ^ for drum
* 00:08:700 - ^
* 00:09:300 - ^
* 00:31:500 (31500|1) - same here with ^
imo, this isn't that hard for easy :3 also they would improve their mania skill with this. hihi
* 00:41:700 (41700|1) - i think this LN should start from 00:42:300 until 00:43:500 - if you applied it, please add note 00:41:700 - with 'clap'
* 00:43:500 - i suggest to add note here^^
* 00:51:300 (51300|2) - this LN too~ i think it should start from 00:52:500 ~ 00:53:100 - try to playback it around 50%
* 00:51:300 - if you applied that, please add note here and 00:51:900 -
* 00:56:700 (56700|0) - i suggest move on 3
* 00:58:500 - ^ on 1 or 2 since it has different beat with 00:57:900 - no need to one line it.
* 01:06:300 (66300|2,66900|2,67500|1,68100|1) - same with^ move them so to other column so it would not in one line. since it has different beat.
suggestion above^ is also apply to all of one line pattern
* 01:14:700 (74700|3) - same with first point^^
* 01:24:900 (84900|3) - i think it should start on 01:26:100 - if also, please add note on 01:24:900 and 01:25:500
* 01:34:500 (94500|0) - i suggest to delete this ln and follow the drum beat (place note on the red line, same with your pattern before)
* 01:41:100 (101100|3) - i just playback it, and i think it should stop at white line 01:45:000 -
* 01:45:300 (105300|0,105300|3) - if you accept that, please move this to 2 and 3
* 02:02:700 (122700|1) - i suggest to change this to note. because i don't hear anything fit to this LN. If you want make a LN, i suggest to change this note 02:04:500 (124500|2) - and finish it on blue line 02:04:950 -
* 00:07:200 - I suggest to double this, 3 noters is too hard for NM imo. Eventhough it has louder instrument sound
* 00:10:500 - same here^ 2 notes are enough.
* 00:12:900 (12900|2) - delete this please ><"
* 00:15:300 - delete one of them too please ><" 3 notes for kick sound is too hard for NM seriously. You could check the other mania map at NM difficulty xD
suggestion above^ apply to all of 3 noters kick sound
* 00:18:600 (18600|3,18900|3) - i suggest to move them on 1 since it has different pitch with 00:19:200 (19200|3) -
* 00:23:400 (23400|0,23700|0) - ^ on 4
* 00:26:100 (26100|3) - ^ on 1
* 00:27:000 (27000|3,27300|1) - i suggest to CTRL +G
* 00:29:250 (29250|2,29550|0,29850|2,30150|0) - Please delete them, i think they just ghost notes. I heard no instrument sound here.
* 00:33:900 - please >< i highly recommended to double this. no need to be 4 notes.
* 00:38:400 (38400|1,38400|2) - if they're for vocal, i think it should stop at 00:38:700 -
* 00:39:600 (39600|1,39600|2) - ^ at 00:39:900 -
* 00:40:800 (40800|1,40800|2) - ^ at 00:41:100 -
* 00:41:400 - i suggest to add LNs for following your pattern^^
* 00:42:000 (42000|1,42000|2) - i think it should stop at 00:43:500 -
suggestion above also apply on 00:48:000 ~ 00:53:100 -
* 00:51:000 - if you want to put LN here, it should stop at 00:51:300 -
* 00:54:600 (54600|2,54900|2) - move on 1 or 4
i think the rest just same as before, so it has a same mod too~
* 01:40:800 (100800|3) - move on 2

I think thats all for me^^ i hope it could helpful. Also sorry i can't mod HD, im afraid i would ruin them if i do u.u

00:50:100 (50100|3,50100|1) - inconsistent, clapping is mapped to triples, not doubles.

Above 4 moves I moved around for better flow with pitch but didn't quite do exactly those moves.

Good luck with getting this ranked. =]
Thank you for the mod! Caught some things I didn't notice until you mentioned them. Thanks!

Okay, did lots of changes, NM should be WAY more consistent and a couple errors should be gone from HD.

Hopefully I can get this map further along the ranking process.

Hi Hibiki o/, mod requested (personally) on the modding queue:

1|2|3|4

[General]
This is only a suggestion, but maybe change the diff names to "Child's Book", "Short Story" and "Novel". It's easily distinguishable between one another, and wouldn't require the diff clasification in the name (EZ, NM and HD). Nothing wrong with the current names tho, just giving an idea :P.
Add Kiai Time from 01:17:700 - up to 01:36:300 -

[EZ]
00:09:900 (9900|2,9900|0) - Why a double here, there's no strong sound to emphasize, so delete one of the notes
00:18:300 (18300|3) - Move to column 1, no need to repeat note in the same column (also beacause column 1 is too empty in that section)
00:23:100 (23100|1) - Move to column 3, column is too empty
00:25:500 (25500|0) - Move to column 2, ^same reason
00:30:900 (30900|3) - Move to column 3, ^same reason
00:36:900 (36900|2) - Move to column 4, ^same reason
00:42:900 (42900|0) - This LN should start on 00:42:600 -, end in same place (that is if you are following the rising sound on that part, if not, then oops)
01:03:300 (63300|0) - Move to column 2
01:07:500 (67500|2,68100|1) - Move this one column to the left

[NM]
The SV on 01:36:300 - is too slow, make it at least 0.65-0.75 (increase the speed at least, too slow). Tho my reccomendation would be to leave SVs only for the HD diff, but if you want to leave the SV, increase the speed.
00:07:200 (7200|0,7200|2) - Delete this double, there's no sound here, meaning that it's a ghost note
00:15:300 (15300|3,15300|2) - Add note, you later use chords to represent this sound, so this should be a chord too
00:12:900 (12900|0,12900|1) - ^^^
Avoid this type of things, suggest you change the note placement to avoid that
01:17:100 (77100|0,77100|1,77100|2,77100|3) - Delete one note, a 3-note chord should be better

[HD]
00:09:900 (9900|1,9900|0,9900|3) - Delete one LN, the other 2 LNs should end on 00:10:200 - and add a double where the LNs end, there's a beat there.
Not much I can point out here without going too in-depth, just that you ignore a clear sound through most part of the song (The sound you represent with this pattern 00:54:600 (54600|3,54600|0,54750|1,54750|2,54900|3,54900|0,55050|1,55050|2,55200|0,55200|3) -). Is a pretty clear and hearable sound, which makes it uncomfortable when you hear such clear sound, and don't follow it while playing.


Map is good (song is hilarious XD), but be careful about mapping both vocals and instruments, it can get sort of confusing and make map quality worse (not saying map is like that). Ask me anytime for any help you need, and I'll see what I can do :)Just don't interrupt me while I'm reading a book!

Good Luck with your beatmap :D

It's easily distinguishable between one another, and wouldn't require the diff clasification in the name (EZ, NM and HD). Nothing wrong with the current names tho, just giving an idea :P. - I was kind of on the fence on this matter. I was initially going off of one mod saying to add them but I think the star rating does a decent enough job of displaying the difficulty curve. I'll remove the EZ, NM, and HD from the difficulty names. However, I will be keeping the current names since I like them more. :)
Add Kiai Time from 01:17:700 - up to 01:36:300 -Kiai starts from 01:17:100 instead of 01:17:700, but added!

[EZ]
00:09:900 (9900|2,9900|0) - Why a double here, there's no strong sound to emphasize, so delete one of the notes - Fixed
00:18:300 (18300|3) - Move to column 1, no need to repeat note in the same column (also beacause column 1 is too empty in that section) - ^
00:23:100 (23100|1) - Move to column 3, column is too empty - ^
00:25:500 (25500|0) - Move to column 2, ^same reason - ^
00:30:900 (30900|3) - Move to column 3, ^same reason - ^
00:36:900 (36900|2) - Move to column 4, ^same reason - ^
00:42:900 (42900|0) - This LN should start on 00:42:600 -, end in same place (that is if you are following the rising sound on that part, if not, then oops) - It is following the rising sound, fixed.
01:03:300 (63300|0) - Move to column 2 - Fixed
01:07:500 (67500|2,68100|1) - Move this one column to the left - I think these notes are okay with the song's sound, I adjusted the notes after it to keep it spread out.

The SV on 01:36:300 - is too slow, make it at least 0.65-0.75 (increase the speed at least, too slow). Tho my reccomendation would be to leave SVs only for the HD diff, but if you want to leave the SV, increase the speed. - Adjusted the SV to be smoother. It's now .70 instead of .50 as well.
00:07:200 (7200|0,7200|2) - Delete this double, there's no sound here, meaning that it's a ghost note - While not really a ghost note, I did adjust it. I removed one of the two notes and moved the single to column 4 to match pitch.
00:15:300 (15300|3,15300|2) - Add note, you later use chords to represent this sound, so this should be a chord too - Fixed
00:12:900 (12900|0,12900|1) - ^^^ - ^
Avoid this type of things, suggest you change the note placement to avoid that - Found what you were referencing, I have now changed that.
01:17:100 (77100|0,77100|1,77100|2,77100|3) - Delete one note, a 3-note chord should be better - Fixed

00:09:900 (9900|1,9900|0,9900|3) - Delete one LN, the other 2 LNs should end on 00:10:200 - and add a double where the LNs end, there's a beat there. - Partially disagree. I removed one LN and extended them to 00:10:500 since it's one continuous lyrical sound until the hit of the beat in the song.
Not much I can point out here without going too in-depth, just that you ignore a clear sound through most part of the song (The sound you represent with this pattern 00:54:600 (54600|3,54600|0,54750|1,54750|2,54900|3,54900|0,55050|1,55050|2,55200|0,55200|3) -). Is a pretty clear and hearable sound, which makes it uncomfortable when you hear such clear sound, and don't follow it while playing. - Not exactly sure how to fix this one, I feel as if the sound is shoehorned in if I add it in with the notes following the lyrics. I'll keep it where it is at right now and if someone has a good solution that maps those notes during the verses, I am all ears.

LOL this Kiai time error. Oopsies, I'll go ahead and fix up the Kiai and SVs in HD while I am at it.


Map is good (song is hilarious XD), but be careful about mapping both vocals and instruments, it can get sort of confusing and make map quality worse (not saying map is like that). Ask me anytime for any help you need, and I'll see what I can do :)Just don't interrupt me while I'm reading a book!

Good Luck with your beatmap :D
