Where does "GUNGRAVE ― オリジナル・サウンドトラック " come from? I don't see it on any of the contents.

At least, adding (通常盤) for a limited edition entry is wrong.

I added it to help people search for the album if they needed to.

Since the origin of this release is Japan, they have a title for it in their own language.

I didn't think it was necessary for a Japanese name to be present on one of the covers, to deserve a place underneath the official English version.

Here are only a few websites that identify it as such:

http://www.amazon.co.jp/GUNGRAVE-%E2.../dp/B000068WE0

The official Victor Eetertainment site lists it simply as GUNGRAVE O.S.T. though (regular edition, but its contents are no different) :

You can add extra titles not present in the album to help searches, but we have reserved line 4+ for that (it still shows underneath in the album page). The second line is meant to be for the original JP title as written in the package.

Though I think ガングレイヴ オリジナル・サウンドトラック would be more useful. Also, 通常盤 is "regular edition" actually, for "limited edition" maybe "限定盤" was it?

I'm not sure we should add ガングレイヴ オリジナル・サウンドトラック even as an alternate, when all of the labeling says O.S.T. I think the websites that identify it as such are technically in error.

Well, it's your call guys.
My 2 cents is that since the title is so widely available in Japanese language than it should be reserved here as an option for the research.
I can't come up with any specific examples from the top of my head, but there are definitely other cases just like this one.

As for limited edition, then yes it should be "限定盤" instead of "通常盤".
For some reason google's toolbar translated in incorrectly.
