Just seems like a waste of money... $10 for like, three songs? I can usually get the mp3's online and the lyrics on uta-net, so it's not a big loss. I also don't want to be clogging up my physical CD collection with singles... it seems so weird to have a whole plastic CD case, a whole CD just for ONE SINGLE. Just as a rule, I only collect albums.

Though I do miss being able to scan in the covers myself and look at the liner booklet pictures. Which is why I might have to break my own rule in SR's case...

Oh, I know what you mean. >_< I still don't understand why Japan makes singles, but I guess I'm used to it now. I also think it's a waste of money, but I can't help buying them especially Ringo's. >_< (...I guess that's their plan, anyway. o_o)

Wait...are you saying that the art is crappy? Or that it's an H-Doujinshi...? Cause if it's the latter, I want nothing to do with it. I have nothing against hentai, but I'd rather keep my current image of SR intact.

Yup official bandscores exist. I think there's one for every album. They're not very expensive either. If you're in Japan you can find them in bookstores. I know there's a Kinokuniya that specialises in selling music/bandscores only. Your local Kino might have them too. If they don't, you can always ask them to order it in, for no extra charge.

Thank you!! If I'm not at work now I would run to Kino right this moment, although my last encounter with a Kinokuniya staff was far from pleasant, I'm not sure if they are nice enough to order stuff for me if I don't speak Japanese

Wait hang on, the staff at your local Kino speak Japanese only? That is strange... I've never had bad encounters with them but you could always lodge a complaint and try to haggle for a discount.

They do speak English, just that they do seem a little more enthusiastic if the customer speaks Japanese; The last time I ask for some help looking for a certain item, the staff asked me to wait and after half an hour and watching him serve another 5-6 customers (all of whom speaks Japanese), I just gave up.

Maybe if I get a "unicorn" style hair do and talk like a yakuza, I could "haggle" my Kyoiku score book for free
