More CDs in the mail and Tenso

Mio (MIQ) Perfect Best arrived from Yesasia.com.  I love her deep silky voice and her songs.  She’s been around since the 80′s.  Having the OP to Aura Battler Dunbine was reason enough for this CD.

I purchased The Vision of Escaflowne~lovers only for Mystic Eyes.  I had forgotten how gorgeous the soundtrack was.  I had trouble finding the artist information.  Actually, it was there on the CD but I couldn’t read it in Japanese.  I found a site called ocrgrid.com that can read Japanese from scans.  It did a fair job which helped me find the artists.  It also helps if you search the CD title in Japanese on Google.  Some Japanese sites will list track information.  Just copy and paste the page to Google Translate. Did you know Ikue Ohtani on track 16 is the voice of Pikachu?

I also purchased the CD single version of YOU GET TO BURNING. It’s probably one of the best OPs of all time.

My First Consolidated Tenso Package

I wasn’t expecting an Amazon package but they cleverly repackaged an Amazon box with my CDs.  My CDs arrived in good condition.  I was surprised in the excellent condition of my CDs.  A rating of “Used – Good” on Amazon Japan is closer to “Used – Like New.”

Kirameki Project: Theme Songs order cancelled by Amazon

I had high hopes of receiving Kirameki Project: Theme Songs for a good price ($21.99). Amazon sent me a notice my order was cancelled due to lack of availability. I can’t get it cheaply now. I can’t even buy it from Amazon Japan because it’s OOP. I made a tough choice a ordered the soundtrack instead ($36.25). Those songs are TV size which I’m bummed about.

What sucks about Amazon Japan is you can’t purchase from 3rd parties. I’ve tried and I get a notice saying they can’t ship it out of Japan. Also, you can’t by Japanese iTunes cards or MP3s from their site.
