Paprika (from Nekokenban Best): From this time, I became quite aware and set up a story element throughout the album. This eighth work is like a soundtrack, so I made it with the feeling of watching a movie. I want you to listen to it while imagining various scenes. The pictures of Paprika’s family were taken in an old house in Kamakura, and I was unusually excited.

Ranko no Ane (from Nekokenban Best): A disc made with the image of a soundtrack for a Japanese movie. The theme is “the Showa era has passed into fantasy”. We asked Ranko for titles that make think about a story. The shooting was made in Kamakura. I never lived in a house like that, but for some reason it felt nostalgic. I hope it was possible to share such a imaginary nostalgia.
