Michael Stanford (マイケル・スタンフォード Maikeru Sutanfodo), also known as Mastaka Toji (田路マサタカ Masataka Toji) or MSLabo102 is a ditzy strange person who has been working as a translator. His most known works as a translator are: most of the English captions of Rei-kun videos (so he is The Man Who Behind "AIEEEEEE!? IT TAAAAAALKS!"), considerable amount of the unofficial English patch for Touhou Puppet Dance Performance: Shards of Dreams, or Japanese translation for LAME Dimension Games, such as Super Ledgehop: Double Laser or The Quarter Game.
His first exposition to Len'en was Tabakata (or was it Sokuhou? IDK) Ren'en Senki , a somewhat of an announcement of Brilliant Pagoda or Haze Castle, disugised as a fake/mockup Touhou game video. Ever since he have seen some bits like the basis (e.g. main casts having no set gender or being extremely inspired by Touhou) of Len'en, or a bit of some songs from the series, but the interest never became a full bloom, until March 2018.
Starting from the middle of March 2018, JynX started uploading the entire soundtrack of the series, from 1 to 3 of them each day. Michael took some look at them (mostly boss themes), eventually he liked them, despite feeling something is lacking. Some of his early favorites are: Empire Power ~ Eternal Force, Necromaster or Broken Eternal Dance Engine.
