Anime music coming to iTunes

Anime News Network reports that Bandai Namco is preparing to release anime songs onto Apple's popular iTunes music store with songs from Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu and Lucky Star, as well as JAM Project and other artists.  While not a new thing, it certainly marks an interesting precedent for Anime moving along into the mainstream conscious.  Perhaps it has a bit to do with Hollywood's latest movement into anime re-adaptations?

Anime can already be found on iTunes — a few searches through the podcast section and you can find tons of people willing to share their favorite songs and playlists. 

In related news, Exit Trance recently released their newest album SPEED アニメトランス BEST 7 on iTunes and Amazon.com.  I'm not particularly a fan of trance music, but they do have a variety of music from popular animes such as Zamd and (my personal favorite OP track) Rideback.  Here's a sample:

It's…loud.  I can't say if it's better than the original ED theme, but hey, maybe someone out there will love it.
