---------------
A brilliant movie about redemption.

Object placement begins only at the bottom of the screen to emulate Ishida's hesitance in interacting and connecting with people around him. As a result, he only looks down at the ground, and the map begins at the bottom of the screen.

The sliders only move upward, an attempt to climb upward and move forward, but the flow of the map continues to push the player back down.

As the song progresses, especially entering the more upbeat chorus, the map uses more and more of the screen to emulate Ishida opening up to the world around him. Sliders become faster, flows push down harder and sharper, but the player continues to fight their way back up and push forward (or upward in this case!).

First.

hoyyllll thank you for mapping this really.

good movie

honestly, I thought some of your other gimmicky (is this the word to describe them?) maps were a bit cheesy.

this one blew away my expectations--- it's amazing how much impact these simple ideas can have while playing, especially when you've already been hit with the impact from the story. the contrast between the beginning of the map and the chorus is really unlike any other map I've seen; the feeling you get when playing the transition into it is so awesome that I'm really not sure how to describe it.

thanks for creating the extraordinary. osu! needs more of it!

good luck on finishing the set! if you're going for rank, feel free to ask me for a mod whenever~

I think hitsounding would make this even better :^)

Thank you for mapping this Monstrata!


Are you planning on making ]harder difficulties?

I enjoy this map even more after watching the movie. Just as beautiful as this map. :^) There are really not enough words to describe it, go watch the movie.
posted
love this map. the piece is so beautiful. just a thought, maybe you could have the hit sound volume start slow and gradually crescendo to signify how ishida opens himself up and starts hearing others around him.

pls dont abandon this set

I think for a 2.72* map ar9 is a bit over the top but I like the song so it's all okay
posted
i love how as the song pitch got louder the circles on the screen got higher

ps... i think you should make the whole map higher on the editor menu for the last note

Got goosebumps at the high part, a masterful conveying of the film through an osu! map.

00:12:189 (3,2) - blanket maybe

01:12:497 (2,3,1) - if you look at the head of 231, they do not have the same spacing. maybe
01:14:708 (2,1) - stack properly?
01:17:559 (1,2) - blanket better?
01:25:157 (1,2) - 1 pixel

also you might take care because your green lines have different sample sets than red lines

M4M!!

Uplift
Looks really cool using upward-only sliders!!
AR8 maybe? it's much more comfortable to play with imo (same for Hard)

  1. 00:01:903 (3,1) - this jump maybe a little bit too big and looks like a forced blanket. Looking at the latter part with similar rhythm (01:51:628 (3,1) -) the spacing is much smaller there. I understand the music is louder at the beginning but putting such a huge jump feels like overkill to players ;w;

    Same for 00:04:474 (3,1) - , 00:12:189 (3,1) - is better imo mainly because of smoother flow
  2. 00:37:046 (2,3,1) - reduce the spacing here so that the jump at 00:40:474 (2,1) - would stands out more? for now the latter jump doesn't feel good enough to emphasize the high pitch :3
  3. 00:38:760 (1) - overlap it under the tail of 00:37:046 (2) - ?
  4. 00:53:550 (2) - maybe move it a little bit nearer to (3) now the visual spacing between (2),(3) and (1) is uneven
  5. 00:57:340 (2,3) - may slightly increase spacing to maintain consistency with the former part 00:45:340 (1,2) - mainly because the music doesn't seem to support a decrease in spacing here imo
  6. 01:27:041 - unsnapped section
  7. 01:45:979 (1) - this really should be the note located at the top according to your idea lol instead of being placed below 01:44:736 (5,6) -
    but the player continues to fight their way back up and push forward


Hard
it's a torture to mod a map with Normal sampleset in 100% volume hahahaha
same with uplift, AR9 seems pretty unnecessary, i would even recommend AR7.5 on this one

  1. 01:01:445 (3,1) - 01:03:340 (2,1) - removing jumps at these two patterns doesn't make so much sense to me as the melody didn't change much so I don't see a point to break consistency here ;w;
  2. 01:27:041 - same as Uplift, unsnapped section
  3. 01:42:210 (1,2,3,1,2,3,1) - would be nice if you can actually create a upward movement just like what you did in Uplift diff, but idk whether it's possible /w\...


Normal
  1. 00:51:024 (2,3) - You might want to spin this by 10° so that 00:51:655 (3) - is still pointing upward
  2. 01:41:894 (4) - x:166 y:163 looks better imo
  3. 01:55:506 (1) - the tail isn't snapped properly i think?


sorry for terrible mod(i didn't mod for a long time) and good luck!!

Hello, do you need a video? I've got the Koe No Katachi Blu-Ray so I could encode the last scene if you'd like. (though I think it's not really "spoiler free" so just PM me if you want)

thanks for check my map monmon there is few of suggestions from me. i enjoyed your nice hitsound ^^.


  • General

  1. same happen in my seventeen map. i know osu will add AudioLeadIn automatic when this map ranked. but if you have extra time, its fine to put by yourself with what secs you want.
  • Normal

  1. i wrote about make same new combo with hard diff. there is nothing special for write about this diff in my opinion. mm if i can say something, 02:00:548 (1,1) - they are too hard to play for newest players maybe..? if i were you i'll put spinner instead of those 2 notes. but its fine to keep current one. since this diff is not easy diff.
  • Hard

  1. 00:25:903 (2) - new combo for make same as your other diffs? or remove normal difficulty one.
  2. 00:36:189 (2) - ^yay same
  3. 00:47:866 (3) - new combo for make same as other parts? or maybe dont need uptoyuuuu.
  4. 00:56:550 (2) - this one become bit close with 00:55:761 (2) - 's afterimage because of stacking. dam my english is not enough for explain this. maybe better to put some link for show you. >> https://osu.ppy.sh/ss/8927600 basically, just move a bit right side or down grid for separation lol
  • uplift

  1. 00:23:331 (1,1,2,3,4) - will be better to put some greenlines on their tail for less volume around 5%. its bit annoying but will improve your nice hitsound more and more. there is silent part you know. so we can listen well those slider end parts and i feels bit pity for it. if you agree with my suggestion, could you put some greenlines on other diffs also? will be perfect sounds for yuuuur map!
  2. 00:33:617 (1,1,2,3,1) - ^same as above.
  3. 01:13:129 (1) - this one feels too close from previous object. it feels bit weird while i play this part. since you kept over 1.5 distance for other similar parts. was so fit for music but this one only too close.
  4. 01:25:157 (1,2) - perfect stack will help for reading while play.
  5. 01:40:315 (1,2) - same as above

I understand the music is louder at the beginning but putting such a huge jump feels like overkill to players ;w; Kept the last two, but made the first one easier to introduce the players to the rhythm concept

  4. 00:53:550 (2) - maybe move it a little bit nearer to (3) now the visual spacing between (2),(3) and (1) is uneven I think the spacing of the head is fine so i wont worry about the tail.

[General]
  1. What about using lowercase letters to begin Normal and Hard? It would be more coherent since the highest diff is named that way, and I guess you must have a reason for it because you are... you.


[Normal]
  1. 00:36:189 (1) - Here you're reflecting the previous slider; however, I believe you should not use symmetry here because this slider ends with a strong sound while the other ends silent, so I do not think this represents the music accurately. Well, to be more clear, I'm not against the symmetry itself, but to the fact that the slider is being reflected like representing the same value in the music when it is not. My suggestion is just to avoid these sliders to share the same shape; if you want symmetry, you could go for other kind of symmetry that doesn't involve having the same shape for both sliders, like this or whatever other thing that can come up to your mind, you know.
  2. 00:52:603 (5,1) - This blanket can be improved.
  3. 01:19:164 (4,1) - 01:26:726 (4,1) - I like the way these patterns represent the music. There is a circle below, then a slider above, which makes sense with the fact that the sound in the circle is lower than the one where the slider begins, hence why I like the circle below and the slider above. However, there are other places where you can apply this as well, which are 01:34:315 (4,1) - and 01:41:894 (4,1) - . Just to be clear on my point, I pointed out those places because the circle is above the height where the slider begins.
  4. 01:50:397 - This green line appears to be unsnapped.
  5. 01:49:716 (1) - I do not know if you care, but the accuracy meter thing below overlaps with a notable chunk of this slider (in-game).
  6. 01:54:503 (2,1) - Why are you using such big jump here? We are not even supposed to use them at this level


[Hard]
  1. 00:31:046 (1) - At least move it a tiny bit up so it doesn't overlap that much with the accuracy meter thing? I just find it a bit annoying but whatever.
  2. 00:38:331 (3) - Please use some kind of jump to represent the intensity here.
  3. 01:57:519 (3) - Should not you be using new combo due to such slider velocity change?


[uplift]
  1. 00:07:903 (1) - You know what I think of this. Well, last time I mention such thing, you got other many and I do not know if you wish to improve on that matter.


boi the lyrics made me cry
Nice, I like that you described your concept in the map description so everyone understands it. People must know what this piece of art is about.
I like this, feel free to poke me for a bub when you're ready for it if u want~
