Is this related to a game somehow? If not, then we should probably deactivate it until some future time when we branch into anime.

This album is related to animation.

The first videogame related to Afro Samurai should be gold this month (or very soon).
The game is developped by Namco Bandai for PS3 and XboX360, titled "Afro Samurai".

Can't say anything about the game, but I liked the first series, even though it was just an action-heavy revenge tale (beautiful animation style and nice hip-hop aesthetics). I'm not too excited about the sequel though, as they just resurrected all the villains with 'black magic' or some BS nonsense. It just doesn't sound like they were being serious.

Regarding anime, would it be better just to create a new database (amdb?) or are VGM and anime soundtracks too closely linked? I think we already have at least one anime soundtrack here because it has remixed game music (Salamander OVA).

In this case, the game would probably be using music from the anime. Could be interesting contextually, but it's not a case like Salamander.

Someday we will branch out into anime; we'll just have to figure out a clever way to compartmentalize things.

Well, there's the chance Howard Drossin might have been involved somehow (he collaborates with The RZA), so that might save it, but this clearly isn't qualifying otherwise. :-D

yeah, they totally are. I really look forward to the day this site databases anime music, but indeed, compartmentalisation... i have some ideas for that, but doubtfully anything you haven't already considered.

one thing's for sure, who worked on this CD shouldn't be a deciding factor. i would vote for deactivating it for now (and this, come to think of it, since it also doesn't have anything to do with games.)

Well, if VGM composers worked on it, then it can be categorized as Works.

Right, I already know that. But where's the evidence he composed for the Afro Samurai Resurrection soundtrack, i.e. the anime? Nothing on his site says he worked on anything in addition to the game.

If anyone's got this album, gimme some knowledge!

I don't think this album fits our site currently. This is the soundtrack for an anime film which is based on a manga series. No VGM composers are known to be associated with this. I'm going to deactivate it until we know otherwise.

I agree. We might as well hold the entry for the future Animedb, but just keep it deactivated.
