    [comments and information by Pascal Janin]

    This CD contains the most prominent and famous OP/ED and early BGM.

    25 tracks : 2 vocals/10 instrumentals/3 mini-drama, 45:22

    All tracks seem to have been mostly performed on synthesizers, yet very well done, with lots of violins, piano and other classical instruments. This creates a very good and very lively mood, just like Hime-chan herself.

    Since all BGM tracks have been composed and arranged by Kawai Kenji himself (Maison Ikkoku, Ranma 1/2 + DoCo, Kyuuketsuki Miyu..), no wonder why this CD is waaay enjoyable!
