“I’ve been wanting to create a volume dedicated to battle music for quite some time,” notes Scarlet Moon Records producer Jayson Napolitano. “I’ve been trying to increase the challenge factor with each installment of the series, and what better way to challenge Hibino-san and AYAKI than by taking some of the most intense music from videogames and having them transformed into lullabies? I thought it would be a unique way to celebrate the Halloween season. We hope you enjoy it!”
