About the front-cover : From the theme of the album; dark, samurai and yokai, I drew a yokai-samurai/shogun who has body created by many hitodama(human soul). And making the face of the shogun oni-like was a request from the band (it was a cool idea).
About other pages : They're basically what the band requested. For the songs themed on Kappa and Yukionna who are very famous yokai in Japan, I drew them of course. The ghost geisha artwork for the back-cover was also used for the front cover of a digital single "Jikininki".
About CD-label : I drew the oni-like face of the yokai-shogun for the CD-label as a face-disk series from the Wanyudo one of the band's first album "Thousand Swords".

Whispered-Style GINGA: NAGAREBOSHI GIN
For the cover of the anime "Ginga: Nagareboshi Gin
(aka. Hopeanuoli / Silver Fang)" theme song "Nagareboshi Gin".
The band's request was "Gin with W-helmet", so I did it with its enemy.
And I customized the official Ginga logo look the official Whispered logo I designed.
Whispered-Style FINAL FANTASY VII
For the cover of FFVII fighting song "Let the Battles Begin!".
The band's request was "Chocobo with W-helmet", so I did it.
And I customized the meteor of the official FFVII logo look the oni face.
