Let’s Go! Onmyouji (Japanese: レッツゴー！陰陽師; lit. Let’s Go! Yin-yang Masters) is a song taken from the fighting game Shin Goketsuji Ichizoku: Bonnou Kaihou, which was used for a CG-animated music video made specially for the game. The song and the video has since went on to gain widespread popularity on the Japanese video sharing site Nico Nico Douga (NND), shortly after its relaunch on 2007, inspiring video remixes, musical covers, and dance parodies.
The song was originally used as the background theme for character Thin Nen from the Japanese fighting game Shin Goketsuji Ichzoku: Bonnou Kaihou, released in Japan for the PlayStation 2 on May 25th, 2006. The song would be then featured for a CG-animated music video, which features the song being sung and danced by characters Hikomaro Yabeno and Kotohime, while being accompanied by the Bozu dancers as backup. The video would later be uploaded to Youtube (shown below) by Youtuber bussan00 on May 28th, 2006, three days after the games release.
The oddness of the video managed to gain mild attention with users after it was uploaded, but has since gained over 5.1 million views as of April 2013. One of the earliest known remixes of the song was uploaded to Youtube by Youtuber c0ldcup on February 10th, 2007, which was a mash-up with the Touhou remix “Marisa Stole the Precious Thing.” (shown below)
On Nico Nico Douga
A month later, the original video would be reprinted to Nico Nico Douga on March 6th, during the same time of the official relaunch of the video-sharing. As of now, it is currently the oldest video within the site, amassing over 13.3 million views in just six years. As of April 2013, there are over 695 videos relating to the song on NND. The song has also been included multiple times in the Kumikyoku Nico Nico Douga medleys, and has since been considered as one of the first three major phenomenons to ever hit NND, along side Kishimen and the Prince of Tennis Musical.
