where does that 1976 date come from?
wiki says 1981 and I agree with this info

for example, gundam 1979 (between 1976 and 1981)
music releases from that period could have the starchild logo if the date was correct, but actually the op single (K08S-3003) has none whereas the 2006 release (KICM-3128) have one

edit: after some searches, I can say starchild was created around july 1981 (EPs have the logo, but LPs got the logo later -circa 1982)

Yeah, perhaps 1981 is right. About the month, I find a blog entry stating it was October, with the citation of the source. Not sure why some sites say it was 1976.

以下はスターチャイルドハンドブックからの引用である。
「やっと来ました、昭和56年、“スターチャイルド”誕生の年です。
 アニメや特撮、漫画などの映像作品に関するレコードの専門レーベルを作ろうと考え始めたのは、この年の初め 頃でした。まず、“スターチャイルド”という名前を決め、デザインスタジオにシンボルマークを発注。出来上 がってきた何種類かのマークの中から、おなじみの“星の子マーク”に決定。そして、7月5日発売の「哀戦士 」のシングル盤から、キングの“ライオンマーク”と並んで“星の子マーク”がジャケットなどに付くようにな りました。しかし、この頃はまだ正式なレーベルではありません。そして、10月21日発売の「交響曲イデオ ン」にて遂に正式発足! 昭和57年の目玉となる作品のシングル盤を従え、“スターチャイルド”はこの日から歩み始めたわけです。

after some searches with a lot of scans, I thought the logo was the name of the label
but recently, I found out a lot of starchild sites have "starchild records" written in staff at music production

since the king records label logo just has "king" written but is known as "king records"
so the "star child" logo must be for "starchild records" (with the confirmation of starchild sites, see above)

also, it's not the only logo to not have "records" (5pb. for instance)
that's why I reverted my previous edit (edit: dag had changed because I had spoken about it on irc)

5pb.Records' logo does have "Records" in it: http://5pb.jp/
"5pb. / The five powered and Records." That's the logo that appears on the CD labels.

ah never noticed they used the main company logo on obi and back cover
the records logo is probably too big to fit obi and back cover since it looks bigger on obi (front cover side)

if you want better examples, there are antinos records, canyon records or alfa records (without gmo) tho
other companies don't put their whole name in their logo (e.g. nippon columbia, nihon falcom, etc.)

Nice find nextday. I've moved the June album over to the new label but I've left the rest with Starchild, not really sure if some of them will be released under the new one. Maybe the Ajin ost?
