Stage 5 Theme: The Maid and the Pocket Watch of Blood

Stage 5 theme.
A very mysterious song. Its unusual beat toys with
your sense of speed, sometimes seeming to go faster.
I was trying for a rock piece, but as I don't listen
to rock much, it's quite possible that I have no
idea what I'm doing (^^;

5th stage boss. Plays the role of a human maid about 10~20 years old.

That power of hers distances her from the human race. She has given up trying to relate to ordinary people. She does not care about honor or power; she thinks so long as it earns her dinner, being the Scarlet Devil Mansion's maid is fine.

She is the chief of the Scarlet Devil Mansion's maids and cleaning staff, and always takes advantage of her ability to stop time when working.
(If she cleans while time is stopped, she won't raise up more dust.)

Due to the nature of the mistress of the house, it is arguable whether she serves the role of maid or babysitter, but in any case, she is in charge of most of the affairs of the household.

Sakuya Izayoi's Theme: Lunar Clock ~ Luna Dial

Sakuya Izayoi's theme.
You can't have a maid without hard rock (j/k)
It's quite driving, fitting for the second-to-last stage.

...Guess I still don't know much about rock (^^;
Let's just say it's poetic rock, done my way.

There's a slight audio desync you might notice at the end of the "main stage" and the boss dialog; I had some recording issues during the stage, so I re-recorded using the replay. Unfortunately, replays speed through dialog automatically at a pretty fast pace, so I used the original recording's dialog/ boss stuff.
