Aiao Onban 1 "Sakura" [Soundtrack 1 "Cherry Blossom"]

CD No: Pioneer LDC PICA-1249
Release date: 24 May 2002
Price: Y2913
Total length: 74:15 (36 tracks)

The first CD of the four-season soundtrack series has a lot of beautiful tunes by Masuda Toshio. Obviously many tracks have much Japanese flavour because of Aoi's personality. These tracks tend to be very gentle as well. Other non-Japanese and less serious tracks remind me of his other works such as Hand Maid May and Mahoromatic.
The last track is Aoi's monologue about their day out to enjoy cherry blossoms. As she mentions about Chika, it must be set relatively late in the anime series.
JFYI, the first press comes with a case which can hold all the soundtrack CDs.
