I know this seems odd, but does anyone know, which of the first 25 releases (N**D-0XX) came with an obi? Or any other extras like registry, sticker etc.? I could find pictures with obis for:

N25D-019
N25D-020
N30D-021

But that's it. So I'm pretty unsure about the rest.

I can confirm the following albums have an obi:

N30D-025: Romancing SaGa 2 Eternal Romance
N25D-022: Romancing SaGa 2 Original Sound Version
N32D-007~8: All Sounds of SaGa

Thanks Myrkul, this already helps a lot. Must have missed N30D-025 as it has an 'Obi'-picture in the database. Didn't know about the other two though.

Missing holes in the discography:
NTCP-5005, NTCP-5007~9, NTCP-5020, NTCP-5025, NTCP-5032, NTCP-5040, NTCP-5042: cancelled/not planned PSCN-50XX reprints?
NTCP5044/5: cancelled Gun Hazard reprint? (it's listed at SEMO)


(the NXXD go from -001 to -025 so they are complete but not sure what the XX stand for)

I always wondered about that myself. My guess would be, that it has something to do with the type of release. For example all of the Single CDs from the early NTT years got N09D-0XX as catalogue number

N09D-004
N09D-012
N09D-016
N09D-023
N09D-024

Also the two Piano Collections got N38D-0XX as only ones

N38D-010
N38D-018

You also find this kind of labeling on other labels, like early Scitron DXXB-XXXX, so I guess there must be some kind of system behind it, though I don't know it yet

Ok I think I got it now.
N09D costs 900Y, N23D = 2300Y, N32D = 3200Y, N38D = 3800Y, and so on...
How dumb is that?

Scitron may be following something similar but doesn't quite match, maybe our album's prices are incorrect/without tax? (ex. D28B-0013 > 2627Y, almost 2800Y)

ROFL, thanks for clarification


EDIT: it's the same with the Scitron releases: the price on the backside of the case matches the "catalogue number price". So I guess some of the prices might be wrong (although I haven't got behind the tax-part yet. Does it depend on the prefectures in Japan?)


EDIT2: the only Scitron release that doesn't quite match is D24B-1003. The Obi states 2.500Y as price. But maybe Scitron gave a wrong catalogue number. The other two releases in this vein (D25B-1001, D25B-1002) also show some strange prices on the pics

And it seems like more labels used this System: at least Meldac and G.M.O.

D28B-0013 + D28B-0001 etc.:

Nice, that makes filling catalogue holes easier.
I think the publisher could change the price after setting the cat# or in 2nd prints so maybe they won't always match.

About tax basically albums should have the price listed in the obi/back, which is the price with tax applied. D28B-0013 listed 2647Y which I guess is the price without taxes. Though our current scans may be from another printing, looking at that album's thread?
