The song's buildup is wonderful and sounds inspirational, as if gaining a second wind or the courage to stand up for a friend who's been hurt badly by some isekai villain.

The main tune sounds alright. The drums at 1:06 seem a little out of place to me. If it had been a harder hitting drum piece with heavy reverb, probably would have sounded pretty nice there. Around 2:00, the sudden build back into the beat is rather sudden but not something that really puts one off from the beat too much.

The sudden overall change in tempo at 3:49 is also entirely strange and doesn't fit very well, if anything it clashes with the beat as it comes out of nowhere and the rest of the song never does anything like that again.

Overall, the tune is decent but there are definitely parts that could have been changed up or improved. Outside of the few spots I noted, I think this was a rather decent melody in and of itself.

duly noted, ty!

My words might be meaningless to you as I don't listen to House or any other EDM, but I wanted to offer some encouragement from someone that is curious about genres that I don't like. I think you have some interesting ideas here though they're not completely fleshed out as they could be. The mixing is fine: there aren't any issues that distract, but there isn't much there that sticks out in a unique way either. I think you have a lot of potential and with your age, if you keep writing music while having fun, I'm sure you'll find a spark that more listeners will be drawn to. I do appreciate you transposing the music at the end.

Semicedevine responds:

yeah, admittedly I did end up succumbing to time pressure a lot during this piece, there were some ideas that were technically forced to begin with which made it hard to flesh them out later on; regardless though, ty!

This is Not bad! good melody! Cheer up ;D
buuuut, i don't like 03:47 part...

Semicedevine responds:

probably a blunder to go in that direction OOF
