The original Haruhi series did it but I don't know if that was the start. What surprises me here is that Kajiura's management agreed to this - I'd expect the OST to be a strong seller on its own, and presumably they get more revenue from a separate CD than from taking a small cut of the BD sales. I guess there must be other factors at work.

Personally I like the Haibane Renmei approach, where they released a normal standalone OST but also bundled a second bonus one with the DVD first pressing. Nice way of saying thank you to the hard-core supporters while still making the main soundtrack available to a wider audience.

Could the fact that Kajiura also got to write the ED be one of the "other factors"?

We cannot get OST without buying 2nd BD/DVD?
I would like to get it independently

Wow. Again and again new notable pieces - I think that Madoka may be Kajiura's best work since Noir. There are so many music pieces I'm looking forward to, much more than usual.

The latest one is a piece I even overlooked during the first watch - the slow, sad, and almost tragic music starting at 15:20 in ep9, when Kyoko and Madoka walk to the showdown with Sayaka. Because damn, the show offers the sad content to go with the music...

Haaaah... *sniffle*

Beautiful.

Many people speculated that the OP lyrics were Madoka's POV and the ED lyrics were Homura's POV,episode 10 makes me wonder if it's not the inverse.

I can't help but think the same. It's interesting how just reversing the use of them can change one's viewpoint.

Hmm hmm hmm the lyrics of Snow Falling (Magia coupling song) has never been so relevant to the anime before. "The world is a box", indeed. Now I mentally picture Homura and Madoka walking side-by-side, free from the QBeans hellish scheme, in a cooling universe...

That song was used for Kara no Kyoukai's Epilogue so I don't think it's connected to Madoka.

Same here as of episode 10. But, Madoka's wish is still a mystery, and we know her wish can't be the same as "before" anymore, otherwise this story will just become a non-story. I have a feeling that her wish could turn the OP/ED around again.

Not actually. Nanoha A's did it prior to Haruhi.

Spoiler for awesome BGM:
I believe everyone remembers this beautiful BGM from the show:
Spoiler for actual show footage:


Here it is, without the lines said by the characters (mostly), lovingly recreated, then re-rendered into MAD form by a fan:



I prefer to have the tune only here, as when the official version comes up with Kaida's/Kalafina's (I'm not sure who's doing it, would love to be enlightened on this) awesome vocals embedded into it I most certainly wouldn't be underwhelmed then. As a footnote, I have yet to decide whether this, or Kara no Kyoukai comes up tops as Kajiura's best score for me, so darn hard to decide.

Remix version of Connect that was featured in episode 6 when Kyoko played some DDR.
