A Soul as Red as a Ground Cherry is the theme for Stage 1: "Scroll of the Fantasy Night ~ Mystic Flier". This song is track 2 in the music room of the game.

ZUN's comments about the song in the music room:

Stage 1 theme.

The image of a midnight forest. As it's the first stage, I aimed for something a little energetic, so hopefully people would get into it. But isn't it something a little more comical and hectic?

And in the omake that sits in the game's main directory:

A soul that's as red and round as a hozuki floating in the darkness of dawn.

It's just a common ball of fire. A hozuki is a seasonal flower and its meaning is "trickery". Even though I say seasonal it's going to be sold at the summer comiket so the season is summer. There could be people buying it at the winter comiket too...
