This would not have been possible without the valuable help of the following good people: the Video Girl Ai Mailing List; Andrew J. Currie; Bruce Vo; Takeuchi Shouichi; Steve Dumas; Kelvin Goh of the Video Girl Ai Manga and Anime Resources (and Noel Herradura for hosting it now); and Jim Zubkavich of the Masakazu Katsura Shrine. Special thanks to the anonymous person (who shall remain that way) who helped me with original translations.
Many thanks to the people who have either posted these on their webpages or E-mailed them to me (especially the people on the VGAi Mailing List), and, lest we forget, the people who did the original translations in the first place. If you did any translation work that's not credited here, please E-mail me (include proof) and I'll add your name.

While the American releases of the soundtrack CDs are now out of print due to JVC/JNA dropping out of the anime soundtrack business, ADV Films and The Right Stuf have started a music label dedicated to anime soundtracks called Animetrax. Among other titles, they have released the Akira Symphonic Soundtrack, Macross Plus OSTs 1 and 2 and Macross 2 OST--all titles previously released by JVC. This means a strong possibility that they will re-release the VGAi soundtracks as well. If they (or anybody else) ever officially announce the re-release of the VGAi discs, I'll let you know here as well. In the meanwhile, please don't buy the versions released by the Taiwan labels Son May or Ever Anime (no matter how cheap you find them), as these are basically pirated versions and no one involved in their making gets any royalties from them. If you can't wait, you can try searching for the original Japanese releases among the mail-order shops listed in the Anime Web Turnpike (European mirror). CD Japan is one highly-recommended online store for imported Japanese CDs.
Note that I am trying to list all the Japanese names within as family name-first (at least for this page dB) ), but I might have slipped a few times doing this. If I have, feel free to E-mail me corrections and I'll work them in as soon as possible (and thank you on the page).
