An album with an aesthetic inspired by scary stories and games. The cover art is based on cover arts for PSP games.

Paprika (from Nekokenban Best): I think I significantly changed my way of arrangements from Nekokenban 5. Until now I wasn’t interested in the sounds of synthesizers, but then I started and I wanted to use them. “Neon tetra no yume” is a song full of memories in the whole Nekokenban series. I had a lot of fun with finding out what’s coming up from the huge synth sounds.

Ranko no Ane (from Nekokenban Best): Horror! I chose to give it a taste of the now non-existent “scary stories that actually happened”. Did you get it? The theme is like “Summer Oumagatoki”. It gave me the impression that from this moment the width of sounds became larger. But the monster cats are not very scary. Paprika said that the one with the kitchen knife was her favorite.
