Title: 東方猫鍵盤4
Romaji: Touhou Nekokenban 4
Length: 56:13
Release date: 30/12/2011 (Comiket 81)

Cover character: Chen (cosplayed by Paprika)


The album motif is “solitary journey”. There are lots of Hifuu songs and tracks from Oriental Yumekikou.

Paprika (from Nekokenban Best): An album made with the image of a solitary journey. I want to listen to those tunes during a journey. I thought I gotta have a bright song, so I made “Tabidori no Melancholy”. Now that I’m listening to it, it’s not so. For the first time we went afar, and we took the pictures at the Harbor View Park (Yokohama), but I can’t forget the suspicious looks of a couple that was dating.

Ranko no Ane (from Nekokenban Best): Chen’s solitary journey. Did she run away? The catch copy has also a bit of a flight feeling. The jacket is chic in monochrome, but the inside arts have somewhat of American comic-style. This album has lots of Hifuu songs, I think I could have given the journey feeling with just them. Please listen to it while traveling.
