I was curious to where the translations were found for this album. I came across another translation on wikipedia and was just kinda curious if one of or the other was more accurate, or if one was official. Thanks!

Wonder if anyone notices this (Edit: Oh yay, necro bump!) but I have a question that's been bugging me for ages.

Is there some solid proof for the first track being romanized as "Ensei"? In the show, the HiME star is referred to as "Himeboshi" so I'm genuinely wondering.

I would assume Himeboshi is correct since it's the reading on JASRAC, and there's a confirmation by Yuki Kajiura herself: https://twitter.com/Fion0806/status/143553068548620288

Changed in the other albums too.

Transliterating as MY-HIME is incorrect. If and when they use English letters officially, it can be MY, but if they use Kanji, database representation of the said Kanji should follow language transliteration rules. Otherwise figuring out each and every "non standard" transliteration for various titles is a significant hit to consistency. Dunno what the actual VNDB stance on this is but imo it should be:
- they use English? - keep English
- they use Katakana? - use English
- they use Kanji? - transliterate accordingly to standard
