Description: “Delight, wrath, sorrow, enjoyment as instincts. The cries of the animals resemble a Touhou full vocal album.”

Ranko (from ButaBest 2): An album covered with animals. The contrast between the cover art and the design is really good. Comp arranged 4 songs, and Paprika arranged the other 4, so it’s a relatively calm album. “Ondeko no Namida” has a Japanese Za Butaotome feel.[1]
“Minna no” has a fun feeling when played live.

[1] this part of the comment is mostly likely a reference to Ondekoza (sometimes referred to as “Za Ondekoza”), a Japanese troupe specializing in taiko drumming and founded in the Sado Island.
