But...even though I'm glad that it's there, I kind of wonder what marketing logic/expectations went behind releasing the RoV soundtrack on iTunes- it's a great series, but when "Bara Wa Utsukushiku Chiru" is available and names like "Aya Hirano" and "Maaya Sakamoto" aren't up, I have to wonder a little. Anyway, sorry for veering off-topic. ^^; lol
