Cover character: Chen (cosplayed by Paprika)


From this album onwards, Paprika will try to include additional instruments besides the piano.

Paprika (from Nekokenban Best): The keyboard alone became unsatisfying, I tried to include rhythm for the first time. At that time I liked simple music with just piano, keyboard, bass, and percussions. I was enchanted by the delay while making “Uchuu”. For some reasons it makes me feel very good. I feel like I’ve increased the spaceness.

Ranko no Ane (from Nekokenban Best): It’s a work with a weird atmosphere so we focused much more on the sound. Frankly, we thought “let’s change the atmosphere” as we made it. I wanted it to look like a portrait, but was I able to do it? This disc aimed to have a record-like design. The catch copy on the reverse side is “cat and peace always in the heart”.
