Exit Trance presents Speed Anime Trance Best The Final
Release Date: 1/7/15
Price: 2000 yen

Well, here we are at the end of an era. The writing has been on the wall for a while now, but it’s still sad that the Speed Anime Trance Best series will be ending after 8 years and 23 main entries. Sales have been quite low since SATB 20, and it seems that the new management at Exit Tunes can no longer justify the expense of keeping the series going.

Amazon’s description seems to imply that there’ll be repeats of the best tracks from throughout the series, but there’ll also be new songs. Hopefully they’ll bring back even more classic artists to give the series a proper send-off.

01. Skyreach
02. heavenly blue
03. Mirai Fanfare
04. Hana wa Odore ya Iroha ni Ho

For those interested, I’ve listed sales data for the series. 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 than the last reported number.

    I guess it makes sense to end on a Complete Best album. I just hope there’s more than just 4 new songs like CB 2.

    If it’s a complete best album I wonder if they’ll find some way to incorporate all the characters they’ve conceived throughout the years into the cover art…

  3. Doc-S says:

    That’d be… 16 characters? Since 14 and 20 had 2 girls on the cover.
    Guess it’d be do-able but I kinda doubt it’ll be the case.

    …The cover art makes SATB 7’s look normal. D:

  5. Doc-S says:

    The tracklist is terrible. Honestly the repeats they used makes no sense to man.
