Each track of this album is an arrangement of a final boss theme (from Touhou Koumakyou ~ the Embodiment of Scarlet Devil to Touhou Shinreibyou ~ Ten Desires) and is a duet between Ranko and a different vocalist of the Touhou fan music scene.

Ranko (from ButaBest 2): I sung together with various vocalists in this CD.
We tried to gather together all the people we like the most. How extravagant! Making the best use of everyone’s talents, deciding on the original themes, and writing lyrics, too… it was lots of fun.
Singing with other people, particularly with males (which was my first time), was difficult in a lot of different areas… but I learned lots from it.
