I feel like "Bootleg" might not be the best name for an official, non-bootleg CD...

Also, I assume that's supposed to say "December 11, 2017," not 2016?

Extremely depressing list. It's a shame sales are driven so much by their attached anime(s) and not by actual quality of the music. At least LiSA and EGOIST CDs were solid, though they were like 90% old stuff since they were "Best" albums.

Peace sign was is such an amazing song, super glad it did so well. One of last year's best easily.

Hopefully Odd future is as much of a success. My fav MHA opening.

Insert Bart Simpson writing in chalk dozens of times:

"Soundtrack" is not the artist for a soundtrack.


If it is by a particular composer or composers, list them.

If it by a particular artist, list who it is.

piling onto what @omiya said


Source: video game music data base

https://vgmdb.net/album/73896


Fate/Grand Order Original Soundtrack II composers are:

Keita Haga, James Harris, DELiGHTWORKS Sound Team (Shuntaro Shirayama), Katsutoshi Kitagawa, Takafumi "CO-K" Koukei, Kazuya Nishioka, kegani, Masaki Iehara

https://vgmdb.net/album/75831
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Original Soundtrack composers are:

Manaka Kataoka, Yasuaki Iwata, Hajime Wakai, Takuro Yasuda, Riyu Tamura, Soshi Abe, Koji Kondo, Kenta Nagata, Toru Minegishi, Takeshi Hama, Mahito Yokota



"various artists" would be more respectful than "soundtrack", given there's a lot of people involved in these specific soundtracks.

That's true, but "Soundtrack" is what Oricon itself lists in the "Artist" field of its data charts. Similarly, Oricon lists all anime Blu-ray Discs and DVDs under the "Artist" field as "Animation."
