Is this an arrange album or a re-release of the soundtrack? Not familiar with any Okami news aside from the HD release.

If the price of 3150 JPY is accurate, then I don't think that this is a re-release (the OST is five discs and wasn't exactly cheap...)
An arrange album would be very much appreciated. Something along the line of what Basiscape did with Oboromuramasa would be really cool.

The kanji seems to hint "Quartet tone" so I'm also guessing arrange album. Hopefully expanding on what they did with this album http://vgmdb.net/album/19990

This is intriguing. I wasn't expecting any more arrange albums so many years after the release.

It's because they are releasing an HD version on PS3 around the same time.

Is the name of the arranger Tomomichi Takeoka (竹岡智行)? It's the transcription we used for the Vana Con DVD entry. There's also this Facebook profile.

This Okami tweet mentions that the arranger participated in the Monster Hunter 2012 concerts, which Takeoka said he was an orchestrator for on Facebook, so that Facebook account confirming the reading is his. Not sure about the FFXI concert, but probably him there too.

Well, it's the same Japanese name between the Vana Con DVD and this new Okami album.

Looking forward to it, by the way. Really curious to hear how this is going to sound like.

I don't really want to buy a PS3, but man now I'm going to have to consider it...

Man, what is it about Okami music that dooms its arrange albums to be so mediocre and flat? Are they just too conservative?

My YesAsia package had a "slight" delay and didn't arrived before yesterday. Good way to start into the Christmas holidays (or should I say KURISUMASU *g*).

Compared to the piano arrange album this one is very different. And by this I don't mean only in terms of instrumentation. While the piano album is a lot more forceful and expressive, this one is very laid-back and gentle. I'm not really sure if I like it or not, but it definitely has its moments.

Here's my English localization title if this is applicable: "Ōkami: Harmonious Quintet."
