The Yuki Kajiura Anime & Game Music Guide

So unfortunately I've not touched Hokuto no Ken in 2 months so the Bluray audio re-do of that is still far from done.

Here's some random stuff for completionists or anyone interested: OP/ED short versions never released on CD and some other released tracks.
I know .hack//Liminality 2-3 short size OPs are missing but AFAIK those never had lossless audio and are crossfaded with the episode audio. Tough luck.

All the files have a heavy ReplayGain setting (so they peak at -0.1dB) as they are very quiet on their sources. If they are all super quiet to you, that's probably your player not applying ReplayGain.

El Melloi; BDrip with FLAC, technically hi-rez, 24bit
OP&ED pretty heavily compressed; OP from non-credit OP; ED from one of the episodes (non-credit ED cut out early and also was slightly lower volume); ED#00 from episode#00;

ERASED; BDrip with FLAC, technically hi-rez, 24bit
ED from non-credit ED - RIDICULOUSLY compressed in this and in episodes I checked (in addition to being crossfaded with episode audio), this is the only one that does not have max ReplayGain set as it was already obnoxiously packed; only I am missing (alt. ending ver.) from the BD menu;

SAO WoU; BD source PCM, technically hi-rez, 24bit
on the counterattack - same version as on OST1 but less compressed, from the menu; (Alicization sadly had an incomplete "find your sword in this land")

Shonen Onmyouji; DVDrip with FLAC
From an episode.

Tsubasa; American BD source Dolby TrueHD; fake 24bit stripped to 16bit
So these are the most tricky I guess. The Blu-ray does come with standalone Non-credit OP/ED videos but they are cut out from the first episodes of each OAD, audio included and that is an issue for several reasons. For synchronicity - it is mixed/mastered differently in every episode; I was thinking about including all 3 versions but then the 3rd one was crossfaded with episode audio and the first feels like it skips at one point in the chorus (Re:non-credit) so I only included the version from episode 2. Kioku no Mori is sadly crossfaded with episode audio both times - episode 1 was easier to cut out so I went with that one; it also has a prominent buzz/hum in addition to some noise, I tried making a filtered version but it felt too destructive so I just left it as is.

Velveteen Rabbit
Just in case you didn't keep all of the first disc from the release. Also has noise that is present on the original release.

Edit: I guess there's also short versions of Lacrimosa and Distance, I'll have them up soon.
Kinda turned into a Lacrimosa & GSEED Remaster pack.
A note: (I've not checked every episode but) AFAIK the GundamED songs start during actual episodes so I used the non-credit versions. Unlike the episode versions though, the non-credit versions never start at the actual beginning so... Yea... For the curious collectors.
Lacrimosa comes from the BD rather than single DVD edition.

Sorry for the spam, I replaced Lacrimosa tvsize with the BD version from some encode rather than the DVD single. It has a few more miliseconds at the start, which I thought was more important.

If you already got the curiosities2 pack (no rev) here's just the new Lacrimosa:
If you're getting the rev archive from the post above, this Lacrimosa is already there.
Same pass.
