This is partially my own curiosity but I'm partially hoping someone sees this who can make it a reality.

I've noticed that there is quite a bit of music that comes out of Japanese anime that I really dig. When I find songs such as the ED to Iron Blooded Orphans (STEEL -Tekketsu no Kizuna- by TRUE) or the OP to Hai to Gensou no Grimgar ("Knew day" by NoW_NAME) as examples from last season, I enjoy trying to find someone who's posted it on Youtube so I can listen to it in a playlist! It's even better when the artist will release the full version of the song! That being said though, I find that my experience with these songs usually stop at Youtube if I don't rip the audio from the videos. Very often if I like the song enough to purchase them, they aren't anywhere for me to be found. Particularly I like to use Google's Play Store to purchase most of my songs, but most searches will reveal that the artist doesn't sell them there.

As a Canadian, if there's anyway for me to purchase my favourite anime tracks from the artists I would love to support their work and add their songs to my playlist. If there isn't, I wonder how many people would be interested in it and hope that in the future someone looks to bridge that gap like Crunchyroll has for anime!

I consider buying any music that I consider good. However... When it comes to anime and soundtracks it's usually easier said than done:

On top of that I always buy lossless if possible. Lossy AAC/MP3's are last resort and even that seems to be out of the question. Thus über pricey CD imports are the only option... and that kinda kills the mood.

I've moved this thread to the Polls forum since that's where all Poll Topics belong.

I don't buy that much music from Anime, but occasionally do. I'd rather buy downloads, but mostly, due to availability, I end up buying CDs and ripping from there. CDJapan is a good source for that.

I'd rather hear the full version of the songs and would gladly buy it.

There are few anime song on iTunes, but If you have a Jp iTunes, you can buy from Jap Apple Store, which have a lot more. Of course, you need to buy Jap iTunes account/ itunes card too. Setting up Jap iTunes acct is kinda complicated but you can search online on how to do it.
