When will they be fully released?
Apologies if this sort of thing has already been submitted elsewhere, but I just received my copy of the second soundtrack in the post, this morning--and, if you haven't already, please consider picking up a copy. It's got the cleverest thing going on with its packaging that made me giddy with delight.
The jewel case slides out of the box to reveal an alternative image beneath--and I think that effect is a lovely touch. At first glance, you have the cutesy surface of the show before you try to extract the CD, but once you slide the case out, you get to see the sinister contours of the show beneath the surface. That's a lovely thing to do, I think.
I suppose if anyone downloaded the soundtrack, they probably got to see that anyway--but still, the disk itself has a gorgeous purple sheen and sparkle that I believe is necessary to experience in person. Please support this sort of thing if you have the means to do so, because I'd love to get more of these in the future!
How much is the second soundtrack going for? These days I tend to prefer buying my music digitally (when not downloading), but that casing is really cool so I may have to look into this.
^If you order it off yesasia, it would be around $36.00 and that's including shipping.
Unrelated to the current anime's OST, but one time I was in Glasgow and came across a cool video game shop that also sold some manga/anime related things. The old anime's OST CD was for sale, yet I didn't end up buying it for some reason. Then again I'm one of those people that don't regard the old OST so highly (it's still a good soundtrack though).
Could anyone upload the OST please? =D Or at least the 23 track (As For Those Outlaws, Unrivaled Strength). I cannot find its full version anywhere, only 1:21 cut =(
Got myself a copy too I was delighted!!! I thought I wouldn't find it though because the anime storesare huge in Japan and a lot of advertising over there is for one piece lol but I finally got it =D BTW totally recommend for people to go to Japan!! Great experience

I got it for 2500 yen in an anime store which is like 25 euro or $31
I know it's kind of out of nowhere, but this morning I was thinking about how it would have been nice if Keno had did a song for the new series. I really enjoy the new songs, don't get me wrong, I wouldn't trade them in for anything (especially Galneryus, man I was psyched when I saw they were doing a song for HxH). I just thought maybe a random OST song by Keno would be enjoyable. For me 'Ohayou' is the song that I associate HxH with (it's more memorable to me than the other songs from the 1999 series).
Though it's too late for that imo because I think that music style is too bright, and from Yorknew after, HxH isn't as bright as the beginning.
Heh, maybe for Greed Island, I have no clue what Keno's other music is like, it would at the very least neat to see any nods like that to the older production. I really can't wait to hear more yorknew arc related music, and maybe see if the Spiders get heheh character songs. Shizuku singing about being forgetful and her blinky/Deme-chan
I think the one arc it could work for is if they brought Keno back for the Greed Island arc opening, since on the outside it at least appears as a happy little MMO rpg, but its dark on the inside. Its deceptive like the rest of HxH really.
I agree with you about the beginning of Greed Island. As for Keno's other music, I don't know anything about it. For all I know it could be their one hit wonder.
