Default Anime Games Albums submission RULES.

VGMdb is a 'Video Game Music' database, but we can also contribute in 'Anime Game' related soundtrack example : Xanadu ~The Legend of Dragon Slayer~ Original Motion Picture Sound Track [K32X-7107]

[K32X-7107] is the soundtrack of the anime 'Xanadu Dragon Slayer Densetsu', this anime is based on the game made by the 'Nihon Falcom Corporation'.

But what about others Animes-Games, for example 'Street Fighter II' : There is an Animated Movie called ストリートファイターII (Street Fighter II), the soundtrack of the animated movie was released : [SRCL-2937] [SRCL-3047] [ESDB-3495], This anime is based on the game by 'Capcom'.

And what about 'Hokuto No Ken' , 'Dragon Ball Z' etc... albums, there are many games based on these animes and offcourse, soundtracks were released example for Hokuto No Ken [DMCA-30378], example for Dragon Ball Z [COCC-13661]. These games are based on popular animes. But what about animes soundtracks for example : [COCC-13257] Dragon Ball Z Hit Collection 18 ½ etc...

We can submit games albums info, i think we can submit Animes albums wich are games related (Xanadu Movie), we can submit games albums wich is anime related, i don't know if we can submit Animes albums.

I am sorry for my poor english perhaps it is a bit unclear but i really want to know what exactly are the rules for this matter.

Thanks for reading this

For now you can submit those albums as "Game Animation and Film". We plan to have an additional "category" field later to properly differentiate between game, anime and radio albums (and possibly, in the future, extend VGMdb to include pure anime albums).

Well, even though VGMdb is focussed primarily on VGM, we've made a few categories that allow some anime albums to be posted, and you've described them mostly already:
  • Anime based on already-established games
  • Anime albums that were composed by a composer who is predominately known for composing game music
This allows the inclusion of some albums that are of interest to VGM fans, or are heavily associated with gaming and VGM. There's a lot of leeway here.

The Street Fighter anime albums you mentioned are all valid entries for VGMdb.

The Dragonball Z and Hokuto no Ken albums are not eligible, because they come from animes that really aren't based on games.

I hope this helps to explain things.

That's nice to hear. There's so much excellent anime music. Kenji Kawai, Yuki Kajiura, Taku Iwasaki, Takumi Masanori, Ko Otani... I'm looking forward to this feature.
