Could it be that we're missing a DOT after the "Ltd"??

Seems like some of their digital releases have their own catalog numbers (SQEX-5*****) and I think the numbers are basically included in the URL of mora, as suggested by today's 4 Gamer.net article. Currently, there are many holes.

SQEX-50000~2
SQEX-50005~11
SQEX-50013~14
SQEX-50019
SQEX-50021
SQEX-50022
SQEX-50025
SQEX-50026

While we're supposed not to add a digital reprint entry unless there is something different or exclusive (a couple of my past submissions didn't meet this condition), I think their digital releases would be exceptions, now that they turn out to have more legitimacy for having its own entry.


EDIT: There seems to be another catalog number (SEMO-*****). Maybe we would have to wait until this stem is actually confirmed to serve as the catalog number?

SEMO cats from mora, for later reference (just in case). So far these are used only in mora, but I doubt mora made them up.
I believe all the albums listed are in iTunes.

Seems all digital albums that didn't get a SQEX print before the SQEX-5X existed were added as SEMO. Some (all?) have new covers.
It'd be probably a good idea to add them since they seem to be different enough.

I have a problem and not sure how to solve it

I noticed with saga anniversary that there is a logo I don't think I ever noticed before
this logo is SQUARE ENIX MUSIC

intrigued by this logo, I started by searching traces of it on recent releases
and apparently this logo appears on several releases around june 2014 or before

so what's my problem?
it's simple, I think that SEM logo is a label created by square enix for their recent music releases
if I think that it's because some releases have that "Produced by SEM" that is generally proof of music label (when it looks like a label name)

my problem being
-- whether that label must be created as an "imprint" of square enix
-- or as a "successor" of square enix (knowing that SE is mainly used as label whereas it's the company name that appears --I've already spoken about the fact that a company shouldn't be used as label i.e. company name showed in "publisher" pages but label used in album pages)

if it's used as "imprint", that could give something ugly in album pages "Square Enix Music (imprint) / Square Enix (publisher)"
but I guess just SEM would be enough tho

personally, I'd choose the "imprint" solution (since I have no proof that SEM really succeeded the current square enix label)
since I'm too lazy for changing the current square enix publisher page into 2 distinct pages (company+"label used for SQEX releases") ;p

I've noticed the thing is there for FFX Chips from '12 ("more images", case back scan), then here and here, even as a double SEM/SE for example... Not the same looks as it is now, but it starts with the mentioning of SEM.

Discogs has this solved as an imprint/sublabel of SE (just as "music division" in the database description).

actually, it's possible at first, that SEM label was used for some bonus cds or particular material and then they maybe decided to generalize it to all releases

I removed the katakana titles from the SQ albums because they're all just pronunciation guides and not actually Japanese titles for the albums; the albums are all referred to by the English titles even in Japanese.

I had added them because searching for "エスキュー" would easily bring up every SQ title in the series. I didn't see a way in the system to catalog albums with each other based on a more abstract series concept, so it was for the sake of convenience. Searching for 'SQ' is too short to produce a result.

You can search for "SQ " and it works.
