Hinotori has a great soundtrack including a great orchestral opening. BTW, the opening has the second movement of Beethoven’s Pathétique Sonata as background melody. The CD artwork is beautiful. I thought this came with Mika Nakamisha’s Hi no Tori (the anime’s ED) but I guess not. That’s okay as I have it on her Music CD.
I finally received my Momoe Shimano CD which I ordered March 15th. Her music sounds like jazzy R&B. Rurouni Kenshin – The Best Theme Collection arrived as well. I bought it used and came in great shape. I’m pretty sure it has all the openings and endings. My favorite songs are “1/2” and Heart of the Sword. Infinite Stratos came too from RightStuf. I’m hoping it’ll be funny.

Most of the time I’m listening to my songs on my Dell which has a tiny speaker attached below the monitor. I use the JBL speaker dock mostly at work. I also use my Droid Charge to watch Crunchyroll when I’m not home. I al
so have a stereo system with Bose 901s but I don’t even use that anymore. My wife complains when I play music too loud. She even complains when I’m listening to music on my Dell.
I was surprised to see music from Gunbuster on the U.S. version on iTunes. You won’t find much anime music on U.S. iTunes.
I had 3 CDs arrive from Japan yesterday which is unusual. One was my Gunbuster CD which came by DHL. Two others came by mail. I haven’t had time to listen to them yet. I’m wondering if my You’re Under Arrest Original Soundtrack is the same as You’re Under Arrest 1 1/2? They both seem to have the same tracks. Both CDs pictured were purchased used but in good condition.
Happy Happy! Joy Joy! It took a while to arrive. I ordered it March 20th from Amazon Japan. I was worried it wouldn’t ship. The booklet has lots of artwork I’ll check out.
