剣と楓 is a many-faceted album that is featured by different elements of electros, traditional folk songs and even enka, not to mention Chihiro's pet tunes. Although she strives for such variety so that she won't get tired, she is confident that she will always come back—in the end—to her original style. She will be glad if her fans spot her original taste that is (and will be) reflected in her songs.
Live broadcast will start at 1 p.m., April 10 (JST) at http://ustre.am/x0u4.
