Paprika (from Nekokenban Best): In this first work I wanted to put out sadness with just the piano. “Have a Nice Trip” is a favourite song I made with the sadness I like. It’s Ranko who decides the titles for the Nekokenban series, but I thought “This is perfect!” with “Hakkyou Piano”. Because my intention was to express madness and beauty.

Ranko no Ane (from Nekokenban Best): First Nekokenban. There are a lot of Chens. It’s based on the colors red, black and white being the image colors for the piano and the characters. We originally didn’t expected to continue the series, but I thought it was good to have the first design as something simple and easy to use. By the way the disc surface, the logo and the spine art are the recurring parts.
