Default New Cho Aniki Albums + Interview and EAC Kanji Display Question

Was in Japan and found a flyer for a new Cho Aniki album coming out for the new PSP game.

www.e-xtreme.co.jp/aniki
www.gunghoworks.jp/game/choaniki

Looks pretty cool, but $70 for game + album seems kinda steep.

I'll have scans of the flyer later, but the music is done by Koji Hayama (with an awesome pic of him on the back). Speaking of him, there was an interview with him on Go! Game! Music! This guy's got quite the personality!

www.gogamemusic.com/interviews_koji_hayama.shtml

Additionally, I found a previously unlisted Aniki album that came with the Cho Aniki fighting game (Cho Aniki: Bakuretsu Rantouden). The Album is called Okusan Komeya Desu (Cho Aniki - My Wife the Rice Dealer [o_O]). Serial number is SHVC-AANJ-JPN.

EAC pulls up info from the disc, but won't display it because the information is in kanji. Anyone know how to display that information so I can get an accurate tracklist for the database?

Thanks for letting us know about that album. I was wondering whether there'd be something published. Do you know any more details?

That interview was really controversial back in the day, but apparently it was just him projecting an image. He's not really that arrogant.

I see you've gotten a tracklist, but just for reference, EAC displays garbled tracklists because regular freedb doesn't handle unicode properly. In earlier versions of EAC you could change the server to point to the unicode-friendly version of freedb (freedbtest) but now EAC doesn't allow that for some reason. So you'd have to search for tracklists through the web interface:
http://freedbtest.dyndns.org/~cddb/estseek.cgi

As for the tracktitles, in track 3 the ○ (maru) obfuscates or "censors" the word so it isn't meant to be literally translated.
Track 4 should be "Yuushi", not "Yoshi".

Thanks, Giga. I am still getting scans for the minidisc, but on the disc, it has the furigana 'maru' above the circle, so I'm pretty sure that's how it would be pronounced. Not 100% sure that the title is accurate either, but we'll have a better idea once I upload the disc image... (still waiting on a scan...).

I did upload the flyer and added disc information for Rei Cho Aniki (Cho Aniki Zero). Not sure if I should add the price of the game (I think 7140y for the game with album).
