This is the usual solid Tomimi Retreat work.

A full soundscape of slightly understated sounds of ambience and direct ASMR. Waterfall, birds, night insects, ear cleaning, towel brushing, bubble frizzing and tapping/soft hit sounds.

And as usual, this is accompanied by an almost non-stop voice performance, with calm and quiet talk, breathing sounds, close up whispering. With Byaku's older, less excited voice, this is a bit more relaxing than the usual works.


Possible spoiler:


Notable though is that in track 8 Ten shows up and gets upset, quiet loud and a little abusive towards Byaku. If you're intending to listen to this for relaxation it's a good idea to cut that track out.

I've listened to a lot of different ear cleanings, and each which their own variations. What you like may be different from what I like, so definitely check out the preview to hear the kind of ear cleaning. The tracklist is also accurate.

The cleaning in this case is a soft kind of "scratching" which is very comfortable and not rough. There are sprinkles of the voice actor's dialogue during the cleanings which break up the monotony. He speaks softly though so it's not disruptive but actually adds to the scene. He does speak a bit quickly, but it doesn't detract from the overall experience.

There is one track where he breathes in rhythm with the ear cleaning. I've never heard this done before and thought it was quite unique.

I enjoyed the work and would recommend if you're looking for a solid ear cleaning scenario or for sleeping.

This product has both a nice voice actor and some nice hair washing sounds. You can listen to the preview which is a pretty accurate representation of what to expect.

I usually don't like bgm in these kinds of works, but the bgm in the first track is cute and relaxing, sort of like a music box style.

The hairwashing/shampooing sounds good.

The main attraction then would be the voice actor who has a midrange voice and speaks calmly but warmly. It fits perfectly with the theme.

The scenario is a bit short though and very simplistic. If you have extra money to spend and want a nice product to listen to for sleeping or after a long day, this would be one to check out.

It's interesting to call this file minimalist, since technically it has more post-production than 99% of audio on here - a slight echo and hum in the background. But the addition of these elements draws attention to the general textural sparseness of it all - and I mention all this, of course, to lead into the point that it massively increases its efficacy as hypnosis. Besides the general platitudes about it being well-produced, I'll just add that I find the cover art quietly beautiful in a way I appreciate.

I bought this a while ago but only got around to using (and hence reviewing). All I can say is that I wish I'd done it sooner - I played the game, as it were, and listened to it before sleeping. The result was an enviably deep calmness... the voice actress is very skilled at moving from topic to topic without disturbing her rhythm of speech or the pace of track, so it's hard not to get lulled in by her voice. It comes with three separate versions of the files, which is always appreciated.

Keywords the reviewer selected :

Uzanee-chan, not really a gentle, mature, dependable big sister, with lively, noisy and annoying behavior (her name uza means annoying) she's more like a close childhood friend. There is a part where instead of "kimochineee" she keeps saying "Oh! Yes" in English and we all know hearing Japanese speaking in English is weird af. When she calls her mom to accuse us of what we didn't do because we don't play "salop shop" with her, Uza is indeed a cheeky little brat.

First 2 parts can be used to relax with really nice ASMR sound (around half an hour).

Very simple and sweet scenario like the description states.

The voice actor's voice is soothing and soft, so it helps lull you to sleep.

I've listened to a lot of different ear cleanings before. Your mileage may vary, but personally I liked how the ear cleaning sounded in this. It was gentle but enough that I could hear and feel the vibrations. Speed was good too (not too fast or rough) and again helped me feel more relaxed and sleepy. You can listen to the trial to see if you like the ear cleaning in this CD, since that is the main focus.

Overall, I enjoyed it and would listen again. It's not expensive at all, so might as well give it a try if you want something relaxing!

Keywords the reviewer selected :

An nice little arcade racing game, packing quite a lot of content; there's a very large selection of cars, including a duck of all things, two handfuls of tracks going through mountain passes, and multiple game modes. Each of the cars also have their own customizations and records, so if you're the type who likes to try out different builds, then this adds up to the already huge replay value.

My only gripes are that the drifting's a bit wonky and the environments, despite having a generous amount of details put into them, they sometimes feel repetitive, mostly in Arcade mode, but needless to say that they're still all right, for an indie game of this scope.

Overall, I really enjoy this. I didn't had to spend time grasping complicated mechanics, which is all fine by me.

Well, if you don't here's a really good pick for you. If you do and you liked it, here's... a really good pick for you!

We're looking at roughly 90 minutes (not counting duplicates) of nice asmr sounds such as haircut, well the description tells the rest.

But of course, it's by the best aka Yui Asami. And the sfx is top notch as well.

This is top tier product. Not even the price is an excuse to skip this.

I already expressed how I liked the first game for its unique mechanics; much like last time, you'll be handling many colorful particles, each with their own attributes, to create chemical compounds and fill beakers to clear the levels. You'll be drawing onto the field to lead the particles around, handling them carefully so to not waste any of them. It's still a great and fun mechanic that gives the game an edge over many other puzzle games, but the sequel here expands further upon the pre-existing formula.

There are new additions such as fans and vacuums that blow/suck away the particles, and are actually affected by your drawings, magnets that pull in the red-wine kind, and even a machine that reverts back compounds, such as dividing cyan particles back into red and pink. The levels are much more involving than before, and there are twice as many, it's such great fun.

I had previously noted how there wasn't a time limit, keeping the experience from being frantic, but I take that back; the game has you take careful steps in order to complete the levels, so it makes sense for it to give you all the time you need. I'd still say that sometimes it takes quite a while to push around individual particles into the beakers, especially towards the end, but that's not a major issue.

Overall, this is such a huge upgrade that the first game almost pales in comparison, it's exactly what I was looking forward to. If you're in need for a fresh and unique puzzle game, this is for you. Again, it felt like I was a scientist creating concoctions in a small lab filled with weird gadgets, it's very fun.
