This is too beautiful to be real.

1 CD will be for LORD. That's for sure.
I'm pretty lost with NHK dramas but, they could complete 1 CD?
And how many unreleased pieces for RHH4 did you count?

Wonder if TTR and Gaia themes will be included...
And, of course, nothing for Hokuto movies...

Edit: OK, it's Sony, no TTR lol

I mean, yes, it is absolutely unlikely to happen... but at the same time Victor's Early Best for Soundtrack also features Lantis stuff from My-HiME/ZHiME so where there's a will (and money)...
LORD, Kitchen Revolution, and Historia 4, noice. Shame there's nothing pre-Kara no Kyoukai, but I'll take it.
Mmm, it also says "other".
this is so cool. I love it. I hope "Other" includes unreleased Xenosaga and Hokuto (though the collection would be huge)... it could be completely unreleased music too who knows
When I finally have my hands on those Eri Ito songs from LORD and Tsubasa Tokyo Revelations, my life will finally be complete.

Not even kidding, I was just cleaning out my music collection and saw the ripped file of the Eri Ito song from Tokyo Revelations, and it made me fantasize about it finally being released on a Works for Soundtrack 2. Then I thought, "Weird that there hasn't been any recent news about an upcoming YK release.... when's the last time I checked canta-per-me?" and I opened the site and BAM. Dreams can come true.
Actually, if the TTR theme could be released, it would have already happened and be included on TWFS1. I think this album is for works from 2011-2023 and, of course, the label issues: Tsubasa is Flying Dog and Hokuto is Universal.

For 30th anniversary album, she could have add an extra CD with unreleased tracks...

Better be surprised than disappointed. :)

I don't know why but I kind of doubt there will be much, if any, anime here but well, there's always Madoka Magica Concept Movie & Sagitta luminis 1st Anniversary Version (but I'd rather get the standalone movie music collection with those bonus tracks, lol). Maybe ERASED main theme violin version from the first promos would be nice? Frankly, any and all unreleased music is welcome in my book, including SAO. :p

Outside of animu, as it was mentioned earlier - GAIA Great Nature. Yes. Maybe there's still some Hanako to An left?
Preordered my copies and holy f... I am now poor. Can't wait to spend more money I don't have on the hirez digital WfS2 when Dec 6 midnight hits...
They are specifically singling out Joelle's theme songs in the WfS2 announcement so I think her kajiurago versions of LORD's theme songs are a guarantee.

(Chinese versions: and respectively. If you wanted these particular versions on CD, then no - I don't believe one bit these will be included. 人間沙 was available internationally for digital purchase for some time, but I think they pulled it back. 霊犀一動 I never noticed internationally.)
