The Kagerou Project / Kagerou Daze (カゲロウプロジェクト/カゲロウデイズ Kagerou Purojekuto / deizu) is a series of songs by the Vocaloid song producer Shizen no Teki-P (Jin). The songs tell the story about Mekakushi Dan (メカクシ団), a group of teenagers with unusual powers, called "Eye Abilities".

Most songs are sung by Vocaloid IA, while the earlier songs were sung by Vocaloid Miku Hatsune. The project started at February 17, 2011 when the first song Artificial Enemy was uploaded to Nico Nico Douga.
