Album info: Links to translated interviews and/or articles related to this album collected here. The concept for this album, written by Maaya herself, is as follows: What does one have to do to describe the self well? Gender, age, nationality, race, name, “title.” Symbols to fulfill these criteria, we have many of them. But these symbols, how much can they tell of the whole? For example, just within me, a lone human being: masculine and feminine, child-like and adult-like, strength and weakness, tenderness and coldness, such directly-opposed elements exist together. But if I must mark this disc with one symbol, I think “Shounen Alice [Boy Alice]” will do the job well. Just as all people do, I carry many contradictions and infinities. If I am to express such emotions, then I think these words will do the job well. (Translated by Miyuki)
