Release date: 12/08/2013 (Comiket 84)

Cover character: Chen (cosplayed by Paprika)


A fairy-themed album.

Paprika (from Nekokenban Best): The two songs that were picked this time, which are also arrangements of vocal songs, I tried to arrange many times until they became completely different. I completely changed the chord in “Tou!” and I tried to make “Aoi Miren, Aoi Namida” majestic. Since the album theme is fairies, my plan was to make it mysterious.

Ranko no Ane (from Nekokenban Best): A fairy-themed disc. It’s made with the imagery of a fantasy movie for children. In order to shape the concept from here, an attempt was made to change the style with the cooperation between Paprika and I. The way she used the original themes, with fairy-like and clear sounds, is beautiful. This is one of the Nekokenbans I’ve listened to many times.
