    Do we know if the Season 1 OST is ever going to get it’s own release (like Madoka’s did)?

    I want to buy as many Kajiura works as I can but atm the SAO score is only available via the BDs and I don’t want to fork out extra money for that godawful show.

    There is nothing announced so I cant promise anything either. SAO isnt even as nearly as popular as Madoka is so even though there’s is a possibility season 1 might get standalone, I personally think its unlikely 🙁

  3. Alex W says:

    It’s a shame if that’s the case, but I’m told the score for SAO isn’t that great bar a few main themes anyway. But I’ll hold out (maybe I’ll also check out YJA every so often to see if someone is getting rid of their volumes that have the OSTs for cheap or something, though I still don’t really want SAO BD sets taking up my shelf tbh…), who knows- it could take years but still happen, or just never happen ever. Only time will tell.

    You can check the score for yourself since there are videos with the music on youtube and other sites. Its indeed inferior to some previous works or some future ones, but its not that bad as you have heard 😉

    SAO season 2 soundtrack is coming out in December 24th, not the 12th..

  6. george1234 says:

    It was 12th at first but then changed it to 24th. If you noticed I have fixed the date everywhere (calendar, discography , future events, except here
