It's a bit light to trust a translation of only 2 albums by the Japanese... So you admit that your translation of "Hit Collection” is not a good translation for "ヒット曲集" finally?

Regarding the translations "Music Collection" and "Hit Song Collection" in first line, I did as indicated in the guidelines and as the staff indicated to me at the start of my submissions.

About Takarajima, let's take this title:
It makes little sense without "FOR EVER SERIES".
For this title, I admit that it bothers me less. First because the display title is kept short, but also because "For Ever Series" is written on the front cover; but mainly because this album contains new BGM compared to the 1st album released (CQ-7038).

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.

Because the most important thing remains for me to indicate and favor the name of the anime in the first line.

I'm not the only one who submitted the albums this way, and before you edit the display titles, apparently it doesn't bother staff and other users.

The other lines are also used to put keywords (just like the series names) that can be found with the search engine by users.

Maybe you also prefer to have the name of the series in the first line because you classify your albums by series in your collection? And so finally it remains only a question of personal taste?

Given the large number of Animex 1200 CDs, I'm just saying that you have to think carefully before adding or not the name of the series in the display title, and editing all.
