line 1: Display Name
This is the name that will appear as the title when the album is displayed.
Generally, the name for an album comes from the title on the Front or the Spine.
If the game has an official english name, you may use it instead of the romanized Japanese name (Art of Fighting instead of Ryouko no Ken).
Why is "Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward Soundtrack" apparently not acceptable for the display name? It's the official English name, and many many times more likely to be searched for than the romanized name.

In this case, the official English name is not a translation of the album title but instead a separate name.

Nonetheless, I think you may have a valid case here eschotron. It may be good to have as the display name. Even so, having it in ANY of the lines makes it such that if someone types "zero escape" into the search, this album listing will come up. They'd just have to have the know-how to realize this is the soundtrack for it.

If there's no english title available on the covers/scans, then we should always go romaji for non romanized titles. (that's for the display line)
I am following this guideline, most of us are i think, even though it's not 100%.

I think this is one of the better soundtracks to come out this year so far.

Then the instructions on what appears on which line need to be revised, ne?

I love this game's artwork.

Thus, I've added packaging scans. Love them. Tuck them in at night.

I like the Tray illustration (or Jap's front cover for the game, it's the same pic).



It is more anime-ish style than the rest of the artwork but I especially like how the girl with the flower was drawn.
