This album is all about pairings between Touhou characters. Each track is an arrangement of two or three themes.

Ranko (from ButaBest 2): For the first time, we made a CD based on shipping. There were too many pairs I wanted to sing about, so even thinking about which ones to include was a challenge. “Y” is an answer song to “Fujimi no girlfriend” by Shoudouteki no hito.
It was satisfying to write lyrics about pairings I normally don’t think about (of my own free will), including YuyuYuka and KoiFlan.
