Gracenote
http://www.gracenote.com 
	A site for general audio CD track listings for use by playback
	software/hardware.  Some anime CDs are listed here, but other
	production information is very limited.  Gracenote now charges
	royalties to software makers, so it's not clear what will
	happen to it.  Used to be called cddb.com.
	See freedb.org for its free alternative.

FreeDB.org
http://www.freedb.org
	An alternative to gracenote.com (was cddb.com), which is used
	for general audio CD track listings for use by playback
	software/hardware.  Like Gracenote, production information 
	tends to be limited.  It's newer so its database is currently 
	smaller, so anime CD information is even more sparse.  


CD information for specific shows can sometimes be found at
fan web sites.  Check the Anime Web Turnpike, 
   http://www.anipike.com
for lists of sites for specific shows.

o WHERE CAN I FIND MORE INFORMATION ABOUT VOICE ACTORS?

You can try these seiyuu databases or link pages.

Hitoshi Doi's Seiyuu Searchable Database
   http://www.usagi.org/doi/seiyuu/index.html
      Has J-pop CD info as well as seiyuu info.

Voice Actor(ess) links
   http://www.asahi-net.or.jp/~AE5T-KSN/anime/voice-e.html
      A link index to web sites for both official and fan pages.

Anime News Network Encyclopedia
   http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/

      The Anime News Network Encyclopedia holds information for a
      large number of anime titles, for both Japanese and English
      versions, with multiple search categories. It's entries list
      both cast and staff.

Anime Web Turnpike Seiyuu/Voice Actors links
   http://www.anipike.com/

o DO THE ANIME CD COMPANIES HAVE WEB SITES?

Some do.  The sites for the original anime CD companies tend to be
in, well, Japanese, and as such I can't vouch for their usefulness
(some do have English links):

Aniplex (Sony/SPE Visual Works/SME Visual Works)
   http://www.sonymusic.co.jp/Animation/
Avex Mode
   http://avexnet.jp/
   http://www.avexnet.or.jp/
Columbia Japan
   http://columbia.jp/animex/
DefSTAR (see Aniplex/Sony)
Geneon
   http://www.geneon-ent.co.jp/
   [This is site is a bit convoluted.  No dedicated page for CDs.
   I have no idea where the old Pioneer CD info is now.]
King Records
   http://www.kingrecords.co.jp/
Lantis
   http://www.lantis.jp/
   http://www.lantis.co.jp/
Marine Entertainment
   http://marine-e.co.jp/
Marvelous Entertainment
   http://www.mmv.co.jp/
Mellow Head (division of Lantis)
   http://www.mellow-head.jp/
Pony Canyon
   http://www.ponycanyon.co.jp/
Starchild (division of King Records)
   http://www.starchild.co.jp/
Tokuma Japan (note the specific Ghibli link)
   http://www.tkma.co.jp/tjc/
Toshiba-EMI
   http://www.toshiba-emi.co.jp/
VAP
   http://www.vap.co.jp/
Victor (JVC)
   http://www.jvcmusic.co.jp/m-serve/index.html

In North America there is:

   http://www.animetrax.com

Soundtrax (TokyoPop)
   http://www.tokyopop.com/soundtrax

Geneon Anime Music
   http://www.geneonanimemusic.com/
   (note: Geneon USA has apparently partnered with Starchild, a division of 
   King Records)

o WHERE CAN I FIND LYRICS FOR ANIME SONGS?

You can find a good list of web sites that have anime lyrics at the
Anime Web Turnpike at
   http://www.anipike.com/

You can also find official translations of songs from anime
that AnimEigo has released at their web site:
   http://www.animeigo.com/Liner/

If you don't want to navigate AniPike, try:

AnimeLyrics.com
   http://www.animelyrics.com/
     Searchable site.  Also has J-Pop and game lyrics.

AnimeLyrics.tv
   http://www.animelyrics.tv/
     Searchable site.  Also has J-Pop and game lyrics.

[Maintainer's Note: the above two are somewhat related as of late
2006.  The maintainers of the original site have split, each taking
the original content and going their separate ways.  I don't know
how this is going to settle out, but it's somewhat emotionally
charged, so I'm just going to list them both.]


o ARE THERE ANY ANIME INTERNET RADIO STATIONS?
[editor's note: I'm open to recommendations]

Anime in the Limelight
   http://www.limepub.com/radio.html
     Licensed anime music radio site, about 1 hour content.

Adventures in Anime Music
   http://www.adventuresinanimemusic.com/
     Licensed anime music radio live broadcast and site, about 1 hour 
     content per broadcast, archive of previous broadcasts.

Anime Hardcore Radio
   http://www.animehardcoreradio.net/
     Live365.com station, but also broadcasts on other streaming
     formats like mp3 and realaudio.

Interactive Anime OST
   http://ftp.jav.net/
   [Dead link]
     A Shoutcast station with an online request system.  Uses streaming
     mp3 at 128kbps so you need a reasonably fast network connection.

Japan-A-Radio
   http://www.japanaradio.com/

ToonRadio.net
   http://www.toonradio.net/
     Broadcasts "Anime in the Limelight" and "Adventures in Anime
     Music" in scheduled time slots.

You might try some of the streaming media vendors, like Real.com and
live365.com, shoutcast.com or check the site database at the Anime 
Web Turnpike (http://www.anipike.com/index.php?cat=92).

o WHERE CAN I FIND AN ANIME MUSIC SAMPLER SITE?

Many people say they use MP3s to get an idea of what's on a CD before
they decide to buy it.  There is a school of though that says the more
ethical way of providing this is by provding exerpts from any given
track rather than the whole track (for example, see WHAT'S THE 
RECOMMENDED WAY OF PRESENTING MUSIC SAMPLERS ON MY WEB SITE?).  The
following provide that service to anime music fans.
[maintainer's note: this REALLY needs more entries]

CDJapan:
   The audio/video retailer in Japan has samples for some of the CDs 
   they sell.  They usually have a link on the CD's details page.
      http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/

For Yoko Kanno's works:
   The Yoko Kanno Project
      http://jameswong.com/ykproject/
      http://jameswong.com/ykproject/disc/music.php

Some of the soundtrack companies have music samples, too.  So
if your favourite music store displays company info and catalog
numbers, you could try the company site and dig around a little.

o WHERE CAN I BUY LEGAL DOWNLOADABLE ANIME MUSIC?

The following is a list of sites that may have some downloadable
anime music for sale and seem to be licensed.  Not all are confirmed
to have anime music.  Some sites have pages dedicated to anime,
others don't seem to.  Look for the "JASRAC" or similar licensor
symbol, which indicates the site is licensed to sell music.  

Be aware that most of the sites are in Japanese (with maybe a
sprinkling of English).  If there is a menubar in Japanese, sometimes
you can find the anime link by moving over the menubar and watching
your statusbar (the word "anime" often shows up in english in the
URL).  Beyond that, web translation sites can be your friend.

Listen Japan Music Store
   http://listen.jp/ - click on "Anime"
   - Windows Media Audio
   - can't find the JASRAC or similar licensing info, but Columbia
      Japan does link to this store.
MaXMuse
   http://www.maxmuse.com/ - click on "Anime"
   - Windows Media Audio
   - linked from Columbia Japan
Mora
   http://mora.jp/
   - ATRAC3
   - can't find the JASRAC or similar licensing info, but Columbia
      Japan, King Records, Tokuma do link to this store.
Oricon Style
   http://www.oricondd.com/
   http://www.oricon.co.jp/anime/
   - ATRAC and Windows Media
   - can't find the JASRAC or similar licensing info, but Columbia
      Japan and VAP do link to this store.

Of course, a web search may find more.  If you are finding that
results in too many false hits, try company web sites.  The companies
that produce the music typically have web sites and some of them also
link to online download stores, so check the sites for the anime music
companies (maybe even the anime production companies) listed elsewhere
in this FAQ.

o WHERE CAN I FIND SHEET MUSIC FOR ANIME?

It isn't clear there is much around to begin with.  Also if there is 
something published in book form, you might be able to get it from
Japanese stores, like www.amazon.co.jp.

A general sheet music site like the following might have something.

Doremi Music Publishing Co., Ltd.
3-36-4 Takada Toshima-ku
Tokyo
171-0033
Japan
phone: 03-5950-8220
fax  : 03-5950-8246
http://www.doremi.co.jp
   Site is in Japanese.

AnimeNation (see Mail Order Business section for store info)
   http://www.animenation.com/books-import-sheet-music.html

Some fan transcriptions can be found at:
Ichigo's Sheet Music
   http://ichigos.com/

Also check web link sites, like the Anime Web Turnpike.

Cowboy Bebop
   This was posted 9 Nov, 2001:

   While looking for an "impish" picture of YK, I found this at James
   McCawley's site:

      Cowboy Bebop Sheet Music
   
      At last, sheet music for a Kanno score has been officially published.
      The "Cowboy Bebop Bandscore", containing Kanno's band arrangements for
      the tracks Tank, Rush, Space Lion, Cats on Mars, Memory, and Real Folk
      Blues, is available from Movic, ISBN #4896014138, retailing for 2000 yen.
   
   It turns out there was an earlier sighting by Lynn Tse in Sept 1999:

      Cowboy Bebop Band Score
      Movic
      ISBN: 4-89601-413-8
      2000 yen (tax not included)
      released 1999.1.15

      The 80 pages book is black A4 size, with Spike on the front cover 
      and the Swordfish in the back cover.
      Please note that this book is a Band Score, not piano sheet music, 
      meaning that if you want to reproduce any of the songs in the book, 
      you will need a Jazz band.  Some of the songs uses something like 
      15 instruments.

      The songs are:
      1. Tank!
      2. RUSH
      3. SPACE LION
      4. Cats on Mars
      5. Memories
      6. The Real Folk Blues

   Sorry about missing that, Lynn.

   Note, I think this book is now out of print.

For Maaya Sakamoto and Yoko Kanno fans, this was posted on 29 Aug, 2003:

   Title: Yasashiku hikeru Sakamoto Maaya Piano Solo Album,
   Single Collection + "Nikopachi & Hotchpotch"
   Publisher: kmp
   ISBN: 4-7732-2097-X
   Price: 2000 yen
   Description: Piano scores for all 31 tracks from Sakamoto Maaya's two
   single collection albums
   (http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/anime/topics/maaya_sakamoto/index.html). All
   tracks are composed by Kanno Yoko.
   Level: beginner
   Website: http://www.kmp.co.jp/Shinkan/shinkan0309.html#a

In the same posting:
   Title: Piano de hiku Juunikokuki Yasou Tsuki no Shizuku ~Piano
   Memories~
   Publisher: Yamaha Music Media
   ISBN: 4-6362-5817-7
   Price: 1500 yen
   Description: Piano scores from all 11 tracks of the mini-album of the
   same title (http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=VICL-61146). 
   The album is a collection of piano pieces (some have been rearranged
   for piano as well) from the "Juunikokuki" soundtrack. The score book
   is apparently supervised by the Ryo Kunihiko, the composer and pianist
   for the "Juunikokuki" soundtrack.
   Level: intermediate to high

o ARE THERE ONLINE JAPANESE DICTIONARIES?

Some of us are brave enough to attempt to transliterate (convert one
kind of characters to another) and translate the track listings and
other information from our anime CDs.  However, it is not as simple
as grabbing a dictionary and plugging in the English equivalents.
You need to know some grammar, to know what the form changes are,
what is a name and what isn't, where one word ends and another
begins, for example.  This subject is beyond the scope of this FAQ, 
but once you have learned some Japanese, it's possible to get quite 
far.  But you need to deal with 3 different character sets: the 
simplified katakana and hiragana, and the pictographic (and 
extremely numerous) Kanji.  That makes sifting through dictionaries 
more of a job in cryptography than straight translation.  Online 
dictionaries can be a lot of help, both to get you started and to 
get words that aren't in those J<->E and Kanji dictionaries spread 
over your desk.

tranliteration and translation problems.

For translating Japanese web pages, try

      Be aware that names get mangled with this as it doesn't 
      distinguish names from ordinary words.

or

      Same warnings as above.

o MAILING LISTS

Before joining a ML or participating in one, it is highly
recommended that you read the Mailing List Etiquette FAQ 
written by Brian Edmonds. The latest edition of which can be 
found on the web at:
   http://www.gweep.ca/~edmonds/usenet/ml-etiquette.html

  - Seiyuu Mailing List
        http://www.win.ne.jp/doi-bin/ml-admin.pl?ML_NAME=seiyuu
  - Megumi Hayashibara: a mailing list for and about Megumi
	Hayashibara. The list has been developed to discuss and debate
	anime, TV Shows, Radio programs, CD's, and video games that
	feature the Seiyuu Hayashibara Megumi in it.
	  Megumi-san is one of the most popular Seiyuu not only in Japan,
	but in North America as well. Her roles include Lina Inverse in
	Slayers, Nuku Nuku in Cat Girl Nuku Nuku, Ayanami Rei in
	Evangelion, and Saotome Ranma(Girl) in Ranma 1/2. She also has
	had many great supporting roles too, including Christina
	MacKenzie in Gundam 0080 and Sakurayama Momoko in Patlabor.
	  If you are interested in discussing these series and Megumi's
	work in them, or any of her CD and TV appearances please send
	e-mail to: megumi-request@anime.usacomputers.net
	with "subscribe (your e-mail address)" in the body of the 
	message.

o ARE THERE ANY ANIME MUSIC VIDEO SITES?
   http://www.animemusicvideos.org

----------------------------------------------------------------------
2. Anime Mail Order Businesses

The following companies sell imported anime music through mail order,
either by phone, fax, e-mail, web, or snail-mail.  Be sure to do
your homework beforehand if you are concerned about things like
bootlegs.

Keep in mind that special orders, or out-of-stock items, from stores 
outside of Japan may take a month or more to ship because their 
ordering frequency is limited.

Amazon.co.jp
http://www.amazon.co.jp/
[In Japanese.  The Japanese branch of amazon.com.  You might find 
music books here, if you can read or translate Japanese, or Babelfish
(http:babelfish.altavista.com/) works well enough.  Viable alternative 
to CD Japan (see below), carries some items CD Japan does not, and 
shipping charges can be lower.  For CDs, try finding the catalog number 
elsewhere and then using that in Amazon.co.jp's keyword search.]

would pay higher charges from stores outside of Japan anyways.  It is 
also worth it if availability and delivery time are an issue, too.

[There have been confirmed reports of bootlegs coming from this store,

You can also find used CDs at online auctions sites like E-Bay, but,
since many are bootlegs, be sure to do your homework.  One recommended
auction site is Yahoo! Japan's auctions (http://auctions.yahoo.co.jp/),
particularly through an intermediary service like Rinkya.com 
(http://rinkya.com/) or perhaps a translation site like Babelfish
(http://babelfish.altavista.com/ - be aware that names get mangled 
with this as it doesn't distinguish names from ordinary words).

If there is a store that you have found to be reliable for 
mail-orders, please let me know so I can add them to this list.  
However, given the tone of this FAQ regarding bootlegs, it is 
probably best to recommend only stores that do not sell bootleg
CDs.
