東方猫鍵盤10 | Touhou Nekokenban 10

Title: 東方猫鍵盤10

Cover character: Chen (cosplayed by Paprika)


The album’s theme is “cooking”, and each track after the first one is named like a dish. All together they make a restaurant menu, from the aperitif to the digestif and even including a takeout food.

Paprika (from Nekokenban Best): Since the concept was a restaurant, I was having trouble with making cooking sounds. “Ushi fillet niku to foie gras no tsumi to batsu” is the main dish, so it has a bit of Latin gaudy feeling. It’s meat. In “Mayohiga Restaurant no theme”, you go round and round in the forest and suddenly a restaurant appeared in the opened area! That’s what I tried to express.

Ranko no Ane (from Nekokenban Best): The theme is “Touhou x Cooking”.
We thought about the menu with the other members, we cooked it, served it and then it was delicious. It was based on a course in French cooking. By the way, the dish of the last track, “Hoshi wo miageru pie” (stargazy pie), actually exists, but I didn’t include a picture of it because it doesn’t look good. If you are interested in it, please search for an image.
