  1. hi, I know you’re probably busy with all the school work and such. But if you can work on an arrangement for Hare Hare Yukai (Koizumi Ver.) for Alto Sax that would be great! I would try to do it for myself but sadly I still cant. Any help would be appreciated!

    • Well Christmas break is coming up soon, so I should be able to work on more sheet music and videos then. I have a list put together of songs I would like to work on, but it shouldn’t take too long to finish those up. After that I’ll definitely look into possibly working on that song! Thank you so much for your interest!

  2. Thank you so much for providing transcriptions for saxophone! Awesome! :D

    May I recommend paradiso from wolf’s rain? I’ve tried to nail that one myself, but I do not yet have the skill to play by ear very well.

    Thank you again for sharing your work!!

  3. Hey. Do you know if you have the piano part or mp3 that goes with the Merry Go Round of Life piece? Or if you know any piano pieces on YouTube that go really well with it. I plan on playing it, buy I can’t find a piano part with it. I saw you play it and it was perfect! If you can help me out that would be great! Thanks and love your music

  4. Saxophone, huh? I’d like to recommend to you a certain series of Vocaloid songs created by Jin (Shizen no Teki-P), the Kagerou Project! It’s an originally music series that has spawned light novels, manga, and an upcoming anime (which will air on April this year!)! I wonder if you’ll like it…?

  6. Firstly, Thank You For Posting This Incredible Music. As A Fellow Otaku/Saxophonist (Definitly Not As Good As You :’D) I Was Wondering If You Could Just Give Me The Notes For Both The AOT Openings Without All The Bonus Add-On Saxophone Notes. Just The Melody Would Be Great. By The Way, I Recommend For You To Cover The OP For No Game No Life. It’s So Freaking Amazing. =D

  7. Hi! I love all the music you make :D I play alto saxophone, and I’ve been thinking about a professional mouthpiece than just the standard one I’ve been using since 5th grade. Do you have any recommendations? Thanks! Keep up the awesome work!

    • I use a Selmer S80 C*
      I’m going to make either a video or a blog post some time about my setup, because that is the most common question I receive!
      Thanks for listening :)

  8. Hi, I have used your alto and soprano sheets for a while, and love them. I was wondering if you could make a sheet for Sora no Otoshimono’s “Ring my Bell” and “Heart no Kakuritsu”, and Fairy Tail’s “Snow Fairy.” I looked all three up, and found hardly anything, certainly nothing with the same quality of your sheets. Snow Fairy wasn’t even in the right range. Btw, keep up the good work. looking forward to more great sheets.

  9. Hi! I’ve been reading some of your posts, along with those of others on Beneath the Tangles, and have been very encouraged by them. It’s really exciting to me that there is a community of Otaku believers out there. I began searching for other Christian Otaku a little while ago because my wife and I are raising support to move to Japan as missionaries. A pastor at a church we have been speaking with encouraged us to seek out people who are already passionate about reaching the lost in Japan, so I began to pray that God would lead us to people who are. It occurred to me that there may be some Christian Otaku out there who would feel called to partner with us in ministering to the Japanese for the sake of Christ.

    I would love to use manga as a ministry tool and have already started exploring this as an option with some Christian publishers in the country. Would you be willing to help us get to Japan? This could be in a number of ways and we don’t want anyone to feel obligated to do so, unless God himself is prompting them. I would really appreciate the opportunity to talk to you about this though.

    You should have my email address since I have to leave it with my comment, but just in case, and for anyone else who may want it, it is stephenbrock@teamjapan.org.

    Thanks so much!

    Love in Christ.

  10. Hi. I’m a student at TASTAFE in Australia. As part of my assessment I have to create a mobile app of my choosing and functionality. I was planning on making a tablet exclusive app which will have Alto Saxophone Sheet music available. I was wondering if I could have permission to use your sheet music on this app for users to enjoy.

    Looking forward to hearing from you

  12. do you plan on releasing anything new to youtube or combing back to making new stuff for us to listen to once you get out of collage i know it must be hard, we can wait patiently considering how much you’ve done and how well you’ve done it all my friends use your music and they don’t even play saxophone!

    • Thank you so much! This comment really made my day!

      I’m currently in the midst of an overseas move for full time employment, so life has gotten a bit crazy. I know it feels like excuse after excuse, but over the past two years I’ve just not been able to update my channel as I’ve wanted to.

      That doesn’t mean it’s dead, though! I’m still hoping that once my job settles down and I have my saxophone shipped, I may be able to pick it up again.

  13. Hi Japes, I found your blog through beneath the tangles. I’m going to Tokyo this week and I was wondering if you have things of interest to recommend a Christian otaku or just a Christian in general to check out in Tokyo. Thanks for any suggestions =)!

    • Really depends on your interests and your tolerance. I am a huge fan of Ikebukuro, as it has plenty of otaku-related points of interest in addition many unrelated things. Oh, and Japan’s biggest Pokemon Center, if you like Pokemon. Just a fun place, and not as popular a vacation spot for anime fans as say, Akihabara.

      • I’m planning to explore ikebukuro today. I spent the past couple of days in akihabara, and it seemed like everything is quite expensive and goods from series that are more than a year old are hard to find.
