“Cyanotype is a photographic printing process that produces a cyan-blue print. Engineers used the process well into the 20th century as a simple and low-cost process to produce copies of drawings, referred to as blueprints.”¹
This is a memory from long, long ago. A small kappa inventor created her first ship. Then, she took her beloved human friend with her on the ship’s maiden voyage. The memories of that day are our last. They are the first blueprint.
I don’t really have a favorite track in „Money Money”, because they’re all too awesome! I was a bit disappointed there’s only one track arranged by ACTRock (I really enjoy his works), but Stack and her brother really know how to create quality music! I’m glad that I own all of Akatsuki’s latest works and will focus on translating all (or at least most) of them. But since I’ve got many exams coming up, translations might be a bit slow. I’m very sorry about that!
Anyways, I’ll work on a review of some Akatsuki albums in the near future to promote a reason why-to-buy their works, so please look forward to it!
