Reminds me much of Gabriel Yared's work in City of Angels.

Whenever Kajiura makes heavy use of tubular bells and chorals, things are serious.
The cluster mention of Kajiura and tubular bells always stirs me up... given that she's a Mike Oldfield fan (and me too, for that matter). Too bad she doesn't use them all that often. "Interval" from Double Cast OST and a couple of Madlax tracks remain most packed examples.

Meanwhile, there are reports/rumours that BD version of ep 1 features a slightly different rendition of Mami's theme. Not only in terms of speed, but with some lyrics and vocal tweaks. Yuki Kajiura pulled into the vortex of SHAFTness?

Anyone know what the animation for the song is like as the ending? I'm absolutely dying to know!
It's just one single still image. Pretty underwhelming, really.

It's definitely different from the first TV-airing, that I can say for sure. Whether it's an actual new rendition though, I can't tell.

I guess if it weren't for Siny selling these CDs bundled, there would be no point in splitting the OST in the first place.
Which doesn't prevent me from considering this one of Kajiura's best works.
The bundling was just stupid, they could have made Oricon history and a killing with stand alone release. I know this decision was probably made way back when the popularity was still uncertain, they still could have made a cover, booklet and released it. As it is they are missing out on a sizable chunk of income.

You hire Yuki Kajiura and you're uncertain about how the OST will sell? True, her albums don't always get as much hype as .hack/SIGN and the Gundam Seed ED once did (all of Tsubasa Chronicle OSTs hung around Top 30 which redefines underrated, if you ask me), but you can expect some profit regardless of any factors. Kajiura is Kajiura, her music tends to settle down in playlists for quite longer than the period of the show-related hype.

Then again, Sony pulled off some nice trolling with Kara no Kyoukai, first simply bundling the complete soundtracks "as is" with DVDs (and giving us tracklists full of M##s), then compiling the creams into a stand-alone CD. People who cared for the OST alone and had been faithfully buying all DVDs for the sake of it, were less than happy.

Indeed. I won't buy the BDs-- Just buying KamiNomi is already driving me to near bankrupcy, and while Madoka is by far a better show, it's also selling approximately 20 times as well already... However, I would have picked up the soundtrack in the blink of an eye had they only released it separately. I already have both the OP- and ED-singles, and I did in fact try to find the soundtrack and buy that too, until I learned that it was a BluRay-exclusive bonus...

Aniplex or whomever made this decision, I am not amused.

At least, Sony, you would redeem yourself by giving us OST Vol 3 as well, with some bonuses, inspired music and rearrangements on par with Noir Blanc Dance. Hint taken?

Aha! I wasn't just imagining it then that it was different. The theme is different and the timing is changed a bit. It shifts key right after Mami completes her transformation. Nothing significant really but interesting that it was done.

thanks dude. i just finished listening the drama cd. and after listening to madoka's character song, i wonder if the song is from homu-chan's perspective as well.
homu said "mata ashita" before parting ways with madoka and seemed to fit in the lyrics 100%

Erm, do we have to suspect every song of Homura's perspective present? If Mata Ashita is from her perspective, I don't see how it can be called MADOKA's character song in the first place...
Anyway, thanks a lot for the translation! Being able to know everything said in a cd drama is an incredible luxury for me. Actually, that's the first time I read such a translation.

Not only that, but someone took Nagumo's translation and subbed the drama CD already. If you've been torrenting the series, you'll know where to find it...

that's the fun part i don't know if i'll call this series an expert in trolling or misdirection. whatever the case maybe, the staff had pulled out some "pranks" in the expense of the audience in the past. another one will definitely not hurt

now, i'll eagerly await homu-chan's character song. i'm sure it's full of (romantic) love for madoka. but i expect that as unbroadcasted ep 10/11 ed song. mami's, saya's, and kyouko's char songs will be a lot sooner

regarding the drama cd, a couple of folks uploaded already in youtube for those who don't want to use torrent files. maybe someone will make a custom animation as well
