Yeah, once again, I have decided to dive deep into the world of anime OSTs. I have a large collection from about a decade ago when I was a hardcore anime otaku (it is a shame that half of those CDs turned out to be Taiwanese bootlegs, and I stopped purchasing those as soon as I realized what was going on).
The crown jewel of my anime OST collection are the individual soundtracks for each and every one of the original Bubblegum Crisis OVAs. Those are ridiculously hard to come by these days, and they are in very high demand, seeing as they've been out-of-print for almost two decades now. And none of those are bootlegs.
I am a huge fan of the Escaflowne soundtracks - and I have the official releases of all of those CDs, as well.
The most rocking anime soundtrack that I have heard in recent years has to be the OST for Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt (now, THAT'S an interesting anime title if there ever was one). I still have not seen that anime, though.
I did pick up Rip Slyme's Galaxy CD single, though, because there is no official OST release for Gantz and that CD single had the opening theme on it.
Does anybody else here enjoy collecting anime soundtracks? Or does this make me too much of an otaku for the likes of ADISC?
I have not been able to purchase any lately because I have been unemployed, but wish me luck, I am hoping that situation will change very soon. I have a couple of job interviews lined up in the next couple of weeks. But I'm going off-topic here.
