Leaving "Hit Song(s) Collection" in the titles therefore remains the best thing to do, with the most keywords to help the user through the search engine.
Between "Hit Song Collection" and "Hit Songs" I prefer "Hit Songs" according with those 2 albums and the contents that they represents.

I accept both ... but at this point the role of the "Display line" in the title box becomes an "English translation line" and we should need also to replace the tons of "Ongakuhen" and so on ..., in order to give uniformity and a meaning to the first line.

I thought that above all on VGMdb we favored first what was marked on the front jacket above all for the display title. Because if we also have to consider the obi, the sides and the disc label of the album, that's a lot...
Unfortunately, often, the full title is not fully reported in the front cover.

Yes it's easy to recognize at least for me, I don't hide it

If there are several lines for title on VGMdb it is for it to be useful, no? Personally I prefer to see "Takarajima Original Soundtrack” in 1st line than "Columbia Sound Treasure Series Takarajima Original Soundtrack”, I find it heavy.

And here too I guess you don't like as it is currently presented? :
I think the name of the series gives to the title the correct and precise location, both temporal and content.

For example if I read ANIMEX 1200,
I can immediately say that it is a remaster of a past edition

If I read "EVER GREEN SERIES" or "FOR EVER SERIES" I can immediately say that it is a compilation that has a song collection + bgm collection.

About Takarajima, let's take this title:
It makes little sense without "FOR EVER SERIES".

I have the impression that you don’t have the same opinion as me on the subject...

However, you didn't either when you submitted the albums, you didn't put the Animex 1200 in the first line, nor the Time Capsule... And you didn't mind ...

And personally I haven’t put any of these series names in display title.
Why Yes on the other lines and Not in the first line?

Groups of 30 or 20 albums were released simultaneously also for the "ANIMEX 1200" series.

So, the number of albums in a series need to discern whether to add the series name in the title?

I think and hope that a new possibility offered by the system in the management of the "series" can satisfy everyone
