Alright, here’s the skinny. You want game/anime music, and you want it from Japan. You want to legally own it, but you don’t want to pay absurd shipping fees that are inherent with importing. So your best bet is digital distribution.

We have to sites for you to check out. The first is Japan Files. This company has been in business for awhile, legally distributing soundtracks for anime, as well as plenty of J-Pop. They recently acquired rights to soundtracks from developer NITROPLUS. They are the developers behind the popular graphic adventure games Phantom of Inferno, Deus Machina Demonbane, Song of Saya, and many more. A total of 15 game music soundtracks were recently added to their service. Personally, I’m pumped about it, and I’m going to take the opportunity to check out some of what they’ve recently released.

The other site is EGG MUSIC. You’ve seen their name before, as Jayson has covered a few of their releases in the past. They’ve released an absurd amount of oldschool VGM, but up until recently, it was extremely difficult for English-speaking consumers to get in on the action. Not anymore!

That’s all the news for now. Check out these sites, you might find something new and fun to add to your collection.
