I have a quandary. I've purchased a fair amount of anime soundtracks from CD Japan and Amazon Japan over the years. However, the rumor's of audio cd's being discontinued bother's me.

When ever I've tried to shop for anime soundtracks (I'm in the United States) from itunes, google play, amazon USA, napster, etc. there not available for purchase (or even show up as an option).

If audio cd's manufacturing stops, how am I suppose to be able to legally purchase them in the future?

(Edit) I miss Geneon, they did get the audio rights and made OST's for the series they released over here.

If that ever happens... I'm sure they'll make the audio downloadable.

And support legal downloading. Thanks!
