=== AUSTRALIA + NEW ZEALAND TOUR 2018 ===
I’m going on tour with Theishter in October! We’ll be playing on TWO pianos in SIX cities in Australia and New Zealand. We will play solos, duets and all the classics from anime such as Attack on Titan, Studio Ghibli, Tokyo Ghoul and more. Don’t miss out on the experience of a lifetime.

This is probably the most anticipated piano covers of this anime season, because countless people have requested a piano cover of this song. Now, the time has finally come! Here’s my piano cover of the full version of «This Game» — the opening song to No Game No Life!
Initially I didn’t want to upload a piano cover, because there are countless piano covers on youtube already
(I guess I am really late into the «game», but better too late than never…)
But I realized that none of them has made a proper piano cover of the FULL version of this song (which was released on 21th may, 2014)
So in the end, I decided to make a piano cover after all, but a full version!
A few words about the transcription itself:
This piano cover are among my top 10 most difficult pieces I’ve ever written, because of the very fast speed and numerous two-hand arppegios.
My left hand got extremely tired after I practised this piece for 4 hours straight yesterday, prior to recording.
But I personally had a lot of fun playing this piece, because it has a very intense atmosphere: it’s like you are playing a rock-concert on the piano, especially the intermission part in 3:17.
I omitted the repeat of the chorus at the end, because I thought it was a bit redundant. Instead, I added the «intro-part» at the end to give it a proper closure.
Btw, a few days ago, I released a TV-size piano sheet for this song as well, you can also download it on sheet host, it’s only 1:50 minutes long, essentially an abridged version of the full version sheet.
Download it here:
Alright, this is my final piano cover upload for this spring anime season, I’ll see you in the next anime season again!
PS: You lost the game.
