What are your thoughts, aiya? (other than 'sodagreen cleaned up,' of course.)
As ever, let me know if there's anything I missed/got wrong or if there's anything else you'd like to see. I haven't watched the full so I'm pretty sure I missed some performances.
edit: sigh, it wouldn't be a golden melody post if I didn't screw up the formatting
