Song Production Information
"Time to Empress" is based on the AC custom BGM in the game. For this, I reconstructed the song based on the motif of the style.
I thought about adding lyrics to the first half of the song, but I felt that the melody of that part was too high for any female vocalist.
In addition to Hoshino, who was a personal fan of the song, I invited wac to help with production of the song.
She later sent me flowers along with a PS2 version of the compilation.
