Description: “Serenades overflowing with charm and sorrow. A somewhat nostalgic Touhou full vocal album.”

Ranko (from ButaBest 2): It’s summer. It’s traditional. It’s youkai. That sort of CD.
“Towa no Maigo” was the first song which I felt a bit satisfied from 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 melanchonic. 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.

The youkai arts of the album are traced from the “Gazu Hyakki Yagyou” series by Sekien Toriyama.
