Many of the songs begin with Chii saying cute phrases. There’s also a mix version of Let Me Be With You by Round Table. It’s a shame Pioneer Music went out of business here in the U.S. I wish I would have started my collection earlier. I bought this CD used. I buy my CDs used if they’re cheaper.
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.
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.
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.
