Default Fix the Stupid Search Feature

"EGOIST- Eiyu Fate’s Song" brought up no results.

"Eiyu Fate’s Song" brought up no results.

"Fate’s Song" brought up no results.

Is searching the artist's name the only practical way of finding a specific album? I don't think it should be.

because it's "Fate's Song" not "Fate’s Song"
you should try without any quotations, "eiyu fate" or "fate song"

Yep you need to use the ASCII-compatible straight apostrophe: '
’ is not advised.

Our search is less than ideal but it does the job adequately. Yes, it would be nice if ' and ’ were interchangeable. It would also be nice if spelling one word incorrectly didn't spoil the entire search.

However, these things take time and we don't exactly have the resources to make changes on the fly. If you really don't want to be bothered with changing your searches, then you could use Google with a site search modifier (i.e. site:vgmdb.net)
