少女煉獄 | Shoujo Rengoku

Life and death, and the space between.

Title: 少女煉獄
Romaji: Shoujo Rengoku
Translation: Girl purgatory
Length: 26:39
Release date: 12/08/2013 (Comiket 84)

Cover character: Hieda no Akyuu


An album centered on youkai/oriental-based characters and Japanese melodies. The youkai arts of the album are traced from the “Gazu Hyakki Yagyou” series by Sekien Toriyama.

Ranko (from ButaBest 2): It’s summer. It’s traditional. It’s youkai. That sort of CD.
“Towa no Maigo” was the first song in which I felt a bit satisfied with its lyrics. Also, “Meguru Gou”. “Hakanaki Mono Ningen” is an exciting song.
Despite being an eerie album, since it ends with Paprika’s arrange “Bajitoufuu no Hate”, I would be glad if you re-listen it from the beginning.

Comment from Touhou Denshi Yuugi – Zusetsu: Released 12th August 2013, a “Touhou” full vocal album. It has a traditional taste, and it includes mainly serenades which make you feel somehow melancholic. It has 8 tracks, including “Hakanaki Mono Ningen”, an arrangement of “Yanagi no Shita no Dullahan”. So far 3 albums of this series have been released [note: the comment was published in 2017, before the release of the fourth album].
