Though the japanese title says "cinema", the few times I encountered this drama CD with a romanized title it said "Radio" instead.

Dunno if I should follow the japanese title or if there's a catch...

Duly noted, pal.

I don't exactly remember all the sites where I've seen it romanized like this, not many, but again, data's scarce for this stuff.

But I know at least one, and it's indeed a fansite :

http://www.witch-hunter.net/miyu/cds/

But, yeah, what do I know, I don't speak jap, I can manage a wee bit of a romanization here and there with the help of Google Trad (not the best, I know, but better than nothing at all), that's about all.

I know the jap title translated as "cinema" but it wouldn't have been the first time that the romanized title ain't exactly the sameas the kana / kanji title.

So, I was questionning myself 'bout what to do, decided to go with what I knew and ask eventually the local version of great old ones if I was doin' it right.

Seems not. Won't make the same mistake again.

Still learning the ropes

you should romanize album titles etc according to the japanese original words
afterwards, if there is a real reading / official title (with some proof) so you can use it as default

Do you have a source for the performers? The only one I found is Wikipedia and it just mentions a few of them: http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E5%90%...83.A9.E3.83.9E

Nevermind, found one: http://tenshi.net/vp/VpPerfectWorks/...io_drama1.html
I'm not familiar at all with the franchise so if anyone is, feel free to fill in the character names.

The site also has info about the Shin drama series by pony canyon, so be sure to take a look if you want to submit them http://tenshi.net/vp/VpPerfectWorks/...in_drama1.html

For the characters I checked Anime News Network. Most of the performers aren't mentionned. Seiyuu or not? Dunno. And the seiyu mentionned have had very little to do with the series. There was one who did 4 or 5 characters, but they were unimportant, appearing in one episode and that's all, like "foreigner woman" or such.

They may have "original" roles just for the drama CD. THe anime entry on anime webistes isn't of much help, then.

Also, your site features only some kind alien characters. Like that : ƒLƒƒƒXƒeƒBƒ“ƒOƒNƒŒƒWƒbƒg

So I can't really use it... Sorry. Will try to post the other Miyu drama CD later today. Was kinda busy unexpectedly.

You can try switching character encoding to JP Shift JIS (in your respective browser options). It should show up correctly then (works for me).
