    This lighting has colours that emphasise the freshness of raw meat but makes a suspicious and terrifying atmosphere. However, it also seems to attract people who are into scary things.

    This is a Villain. I don't hate the suspicious and scary atmosphere, but I'm afraid I can't tell how fresh the meat is. Fluorescent lamps are still in use today, aiming only at special color rendering effects for meat. Even rotting meat also looks fresh. This is dangerous, isn't it?
