To commemorate the 10th year anniversary of their debut, the group took a leap to produce a song the embodies all the emotions such as love, helplessness and motivation. Beautiful Days is a relaxing pop song that goes well with the style of Arashi's wholesome image and the new drama, Ryuusei no Kizuna, that they are singing for.

The hit drama stars one of the band's member, Ninomiya Kazunari in a leading role. Adapted from a best selling mystery novel by Tohno Keigo about three siblings who have lost their parents when they were children, the drama features family love, overcoming hardship and the riddles behind the parent's murder. All in all, the song sums up the dramatic elements of this drama in a soothing way.

Inspired by Norse mythology, Valkyrie Profile: Toga o Seoumono stars the tragic hero Wilfred who seeks to avenge his fallen family against Lenneth, the Valkyrie.

With dark dungeons and perpetual winter as a backdrop, hunger, poverty and hatred as plot devices, the game and its OSTs portrays an atmosphere that reminds the listeners of tarnished grandeur and mystery.

Aside from Odin's forces, the more dubious gods such as Loki and his children make their appearances, their participation in the plot of the game both complicated things and completes the world of Valkyrie profile, giving it more depth and potential.

To go with the European theme, Sakuraba Motoi unleashes his talent as a composer who could combine all elements of an orchestra to paint a bleak, continental landscape.

Valkyrie Profile: Toga o Seoumono Original Soundtrack and Arrange Album are available for US$ 26.90 and US$ 29.90 respectively only.



Given Tite Kubo, the author's fixation on Spanish (he named many of the entities in the Bleach universe in the language, i.e. Arrancar, Espada, etc) the 3rd OST of this hit anime series consists of many upbeat Latin and Spanish styled tracks.

The passionate pieces are especially suitable for the Arrancar arc as they heighten the tension in the fast paced action in the anime, make the desperate camaraderie between the characters more vivid and energizes you when you are listening to the CD.

Bleach Original Soundtrack 3 is available for US$ 29.90 only.
