Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Best 21
Release Date: 4/2/14
Price: 1905 yen

The first SATB release of 2014 is coming out in a few weeks, and the announcement that it’ll only have 15 tracks is like an admission that the series is on its last legs. Cutting the number of tracks is a frequent cost-saving measure when sales slow down. Dancemania went from ~25 down to 18, Super Eurobeat went from 18 to 15, and even the original Exit Trance series went from 48 to 24 to 20 before they stopped completely.

MK gets the most tracks with 4, with Dizzi Mystica not far behind with 3. Icon, plazma, and Hommarju get 2 each, while the remaining tracks are split between Flash back dominant and kinoto. Acid=Stone Valley, who only made his return to the series a couple of albums ago, makes no appearance here. The Exit Tunes website is still advertising the CD as a non-stop mix, though the edits are quite long given the number of tracks.

Bonus items include a strap, bath poster, and postcard. They can’t even afford the clear files anymore ;_;

I’ve updated the sales charts with sales of SATB 20. The first number is the top position the album reached, while the second number indicates how many weeks the album stayed on the charts. The third number, where available, is total units sold. Total sales are sourced from a Japanese blog that keeps track of anime/vocaloid sales on Oricon charts, and are the latest totals available. Total sales are most likely a bit higher that the last reported number.

SATB 19 sold 929 copies its first week out, so by week two it only sold another 288 copies. If SATB 20 followed that pattern, I wonder if it even sold 1,500 copies total.

SATB 19: 111 2 (>1,217)

    I still think it’s because the arrangers themselves are drifting away to doujin works.
    Hommarju and MK are both main examples.

    No airportexpress? I enjoyed their tracks on 20. 🙁
