Not sure about the number of CDs - I'm setting it at 3 based on the price. I'd assume 2 CDs for the TV anime soundtrack + 1 CD for the movie soundtracks.

While the music for the movies was recorded in Russia, Oshima recorded the music for the TV anime in Boston, Paris, and Tokyo.

Edit: 4 CD(!) confirmed.

will that ugly fugliness about album title cease one day?
seriously LWA ost, sounds like music you could hear in some lowcost airplane

forced to check the page to see it's Little Witch Academia
it's like some other albums that use that sort of *censored*, forced to check everytimes from a search result page, it's annoying

I mean, it's printed that way on the booklet front, discs, spine, and back. It is how it is.

I'd be curious to see one only shop on internet using LWA ost

you didn't get my point man, that shit about using what is mainly used on stuff really pisses me off
you can't guess from LWA or other titles used in other albums what it is, logic would want that something more visible and sensical should be used as display instead of that idiocy (but common sense and vgmdb staff = 2)

I get your point but VGMdb is a database, not a shop. The title may not be pretty, but it is the title.

Talking about that, how come those pretty scans you got there aren't in the site?

And if it's a database how come sometimes when someone wants to add better quality scans, they don't let him? Good quality scans are also for archival and database reasons o:

Scans are used to provide and verify metadata. If some 300dpi scans already do this, there is no need to replace them with 600dpi scans.

As for the first question - these are privately shared scans so I unfortunately do not have permission to upload them here.

I personally LOVE scans and think they're perfect for archival, too. But I guess I can't do anything about it. Perhaps in a far away future, my idea with scans will become a thing. :P

I think you misunderstand something here. VGMdb doesn't provide archival, we just collect and index metadata here.

Touched up the tracklist a tiny, tiny bit. Didn't see it was from any official source.

Disc 1, M5 --> Changed to "An Ordinary Day at" instead of "The Usual".
Disc 1, M9 --> Changed to "Pinch!" to match the katakana, even though there's nothing really wrong with Crisis (same meaning).
Disc 1, M11 --> Everyday changed to "Every Day". Everyday is not the same meaning as Every Day, and leaving it Everyday means it's the same meaning as M5
Disc 1, M27 --> Changed "Tension" to "Nervousness", this particular kanji is a Tension of the mind/emotion.
Disc 1, M37 --> Changed formatting
Disc 2, M13 --> Changed "Imminence" to "Tension", this particular kanji is as physical kind of tension.
Disc 3, M8 --> Fixed formatting

Yeah, it's not official. My translation.

For ピンチ, if you'd prefer to stay closer to the kana then I'd use "In a Pinch!". Just "Pinch" doesn't really work in English because it has numerous meanings. That's why I just used "Crisis" instead.

Everything else is fine. Thanks for checking over it.

That works. I usually try to keep katakana the same but it's really the same meaning either way. Just preference.

Here are the Tokyo credits. I will need someone to review these because I think I transcribed them correctly but I could not find quite a few of them.

Chorus: Reina Suzuki (鈴木玲奈), Erika Konno (今野絵理香), Saya Morimura (森村紗礼), Yuuri Hidaka (日高悠里),
興石まりあ (Maria Koshiishi), Sakura To (涂 櫻), 坂口真由, Mari Ota (大田茉里), Ayako Oomori (大森彩加),
Yuka Miyoshi (三好優夏), Yuri Yamagishi (山岸裕梨), Manami Goto (後藤真菜美), Shizuka Arai (荒居静香),
Rei Iwata (岩田れい), Azumi Izuka (飯塚杏実), Akiko or Shoko Yokoyama (横山祥子), Kazuko Kato (加藤和子),
奧 綾香 or 奥 綾香 (I can't make out the first kanji), Mayuko Kimura (吉良茉由子)

Drums: Shuntaro Kado
Electric Bass: TABOKUN
Electric & Acoustic Guitar: Tomoki Ihira
Violin: Koichiro Muroya
Flute: Rie Akagi
Mandolin, Bouzouki, Electric Upright Bass, Viola Caipira: Hitoshi Watanabe
Percussion: Ikuo Kakehashi
Tin Whistle: Akio Noguchi

坂口真由 = Mayu Sakaguchi
横山祥子 = Sachiko Yokoyama
奥綾香 = Ayaka Oku
飯塚杏実 = Azumi Iizuka (yours is missing an i)
