Collection of Music Resources
« on: July 03, 2014, 08:07:33 am »
Hello, starting this thread to pool together a list of resources where you can obtain anime music from. Please feel free to comment below to suggest new/missing sites that you use!

  • Nipponsei - A website that is regularly updated with anime music. Available to download through their tracker or by XDCC. [MP3]
  • Anime-MP3 - A website that has a very large collection of anime music. Available to download through DDLs. [MP3]
  • Anime-Sharing Lossless - Website specialising in lossless music but also has MP3 files in the same post. [FLAC] [MP3]
  • Jpopsuki - A private tracker (invite only) specialising in East Asian music. May contain some anime music due to overlap with Japanese music. [FLAC][MP3]
  • Animeost(.info) - Website with a large collection of anime music. Available to download through DDLs.  [MP3]
  • Animeosts(.net) - Website with a large collection of anime music. Available to download through DDLs.  [MP3]
  • ffshrine forums - A forum with a subforum for anime music downloads. Need to register to see links.[FLAC] [MP3]
  • KHInsider (Video game music section) - Video game music may also contain anime music.[MP3]
  • AsiaTorrents - Private tracker (invite only) that specialises in all things asian. Mostly movies but may contain some OSTs as well. [FLAC] [MP3]
  • ASTOST (梦幻旋律论坛) - a chinese forum for anime/game/doujin/mixed music  (focusing on japanese music, but not limited to). Need to register to access forum. A good source for new releases, drama CDs and also some old stuff, mostly in lossless format (WAV/FLAC). Open for registration on saturdays (this was months ago when I registered, looks like it is open even today).  There are boards and guides for english speaking community. The system is very different, and can be quite confusing for someone new. [MP3] [FLAC]
  • The Hylia - only MP3s. Some materials are actually from Nipponsei, but can be useful for old stuff that are low on/have no seeds on Nipponsei tracker. [MP3]
  • rutracker/PirateBay/KickAssTorrents - Multi-purpose large-scale trackers that may contain anime music.[FLAC] [MP3]

Anymore sites that are more game based?

I'd also like to suggest ffshrine.
Though there's a LOT of different stuff on the site.

From movie scores to anime to video game to TV stuff.

tenshi.ru/anime-ost/ - Outdated, but still somewhat useful. [MP3]
rutracker - As usual, everything without any system.

Don't forget google. That's the biggest source (?)

Anime-Planet.com - anime | manga |

tenshi.ru seems to only be an index of anime-ost? In which case, it's already on the list.

I'm looking for specific resources. Google is a search engine, it is not a 'resource'.

AsianDVDClub (dot org) - hosts blacklisted content - cannot link, private tracker, and AnimeBytes (.tv / animebyt.es) - same as previous, both have frequent audio disc uploads. Maybe not as focused on Anime OST's as other media forms, but still worth mentioning as a viable source.

some other sites I've previously used (No idea on how reputable these are)

animeost.info/
animeosts.net
gendou.com/amusic/
downloads.khinsider.com/ < decent mp3 resource

It's actually a DDL site.

asiatorrents.me also has some anime and drama OSTs.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Krudda, I'm not including Gendou as they provide single songs. They do not provide full singles/albums for download and hence isn't very useful for BBT.

And speaking of Ultimate, Nyaa.se, of course. It is particularly useful when searching for lossless versions of the bonus CDs that accompany DVDs/BDs. Some release groups will release the ape+cue of the bonus CD along with the "raw" video files (as each volume is released and/or as a batch). The already mentioned groups like Nipponsei, ASL, and animeost.info also post torrents of their releases there, too.

Also:

hikarinoakariost.info (I think just MP3; updated frequently)
blog.shinnoden.net (Shinnoden, also goes by Shin-S. Mainly MP3, but occasionally FLAC, too).

Other resources, not necessarily places/sources where you can obtain music from, vgmdb.net and cdjapan.co.jp can help you obtain track lists, release dates, album catalog numbers, etc.

TSDM (.net) ( 天使动漫论坛) - Chinese forum with a points based system. Has just about everything including lossless music for ddl (though many seem to be reuploaded from ASTOST/share). Newer releases usually attract a higher "cost". There doesn't seem to be much of an English speaking community there but you can manage with online translators.

With regards to Googling or searches in general, it may be worth noting that searching for the Japanese title can give more useful results, especially when looking for lossless releases and scans (don't forget scans).

The kanji/Mandarin word for lossless is 无损.

Useful for looking to lossless stuff.

Search by catalog number + EAC may also provide good results.

Animebytes (Private Tracker) has a decent amount of stuff.

What.cd (Also Private tracker) has some stuff I'm sure but I would only really look there if nowhere else has it.. and that is very unlikely.

More multi-purpose tracker sites that I've found to contain a good amount of anime music.
In order (sorta) of most likely to have relevant content
www.tokyotosho.info
torrentproject.se
www.acgsou.com
monova.org (but I must warn, they like their very annoying spam ads, have to close the website it directs you to quickly... but hey, it's still a good resource otherwise)
www.btsone.cc
yourbittorrent.com
