This is a (overdue) judge review from NGADM Round 3.
So the things that you have for ideas in this piece really are good. The melodies are there and the piece definitely does evolve and build upon itself, and it keeps changing a bit more than in other works you have done, which is a good thing to do. I can also hear the Touhou inspiration that you mentioned having here, and I think you do a good job putting it in your style.
My main criticism here is with production and sound design. Your bass is really loud here, and I think that it's too loud to the point where it overpowers the other elements a bit, especially at 0:31. It's a rare instance, but something you need to watch for in your mastering. I also am on the fence about how that bass sounds, primarily because I think there's too much treble in it. There are other sounds that I think fit okay but not much otherwise, like the violin at 1:01, that also make me wonder about the sound design.
Overall, not bad! I think there's definitely improvements that can be made, but with your style I think you have a good grip on how to make things that inspire you into your own words.
