Original Soundtrack 2

CD No: Victor Entertainment VICL-60458
Release date: 6 Oct 1999
Price: Y2900
Total length: 78:25 (29 tracks)

The second and last of the Betterman soundtrack contains another 78min of wonderful music. Obviously much of the BGms are those used in the later episodes. The CD is as good as Vol.1 but, if I must chose, I'd go for Vol.1 as it is closer to what one expect for Betterman.
As in Vol.1 and actual anime, the track titles consists of one kanji, followed by a word written in romaji. But far more liberty is taken for the interpretation of the kanji and I added some information (in italics) in some case.
