Alright, let us get back on track. For those who didn't know, MaiMai is a flashy arcade rhythm game unit by SEGA, the same company that brought you the SONIC and Project Diva series. The machine kind of resemble a washing machine, with a round touch screen mixed with eight lighted buttons around it. The game mechanic is pretty simple. You choose up to 2 or 3 song and difficulty level, hits the marker or touch a certain spot in the circle when the song is played. Pretty simple, until they speed it up till Touhou level that is. Here, watch a vid of cute girls from Danceroid playing MaiMai to get a better understanding.

Of course the game always have updates, therefore in the future more VOCALOIDS songs can be introduced. The game however did not showed original PVs for the songs but instead a dance cover video uploaded in NicoNico Douga. More information regarding other songs can be viewed at their official website.
