27 tracks: 5 vocal/22 instrumental, 49:41
Kawai Kenji composed the instrumentals. Has the most famous vocals and BGM, with some wonderful "long BGM" tracks (1, 7, 13, 27...) that could not be heard wholly in TV series. Remember the most beautiful "kiss" love scene between Godai and Kyoko, just when the snow starts falling, 3 episodes before the final one? That BGM is from track 1, "bells ring in the dawn", a masterpiece... and the CD starts with it... The CD is split into 4 symphony movements, Ikkoku-kan's seasons.

Maison Ikkoku Koi suru Kimochi

Kitty H30K-20088 (1987.9.25), Y3008
15 tracks: 8 vocal/7 drama, 39:31
"A feeling of love". All these songs are performed by Shimamoto Sumi, the "real" voice of Kyoko. Some of them are Sumi-chan's versions of OP/ED themes (1, 13), others are insert songs, that may be heard for a -too?- short time in the TV series (5, 9) while others are brand new (3, 7, 11, 15). The OP/ED themes' original musics have been changed a little, and now feelings are different, but very good, still in the TV style. Between the songs, dialogues (SC) featuring Kyoko, Godai, Akemi, Yotsuya and Ichinose have been inserted. They have been created especially for this CD and cannot be found elsewhere.
Best front sketch of Kyouko ever drawn !!!! The booklet is a single sheet (folded 4 times to fit the CD size) with slides of real actors/actresses and their anime "counterpart":
  • Shimamoto Sumi (Otonashi Kyouko),
  • Futamata Kazunari (Godai Yuusaku),
  • Aoki Kazuyo (Ichinose Hanae),
  • Mita Yuuko (Roppongi Akemi),
  • Chiba Shigeru (Yotsuya).
The center sketch features a very cute but angry (at who?) Kyouko. A good and enjoyable CD to fill your collection up.}

56 tracks: 2 vocal/54 instrumental, 53:19
Music Composer, tracks 1 to 37: Sugiyama Takuo Music Composer, tracks 38 to 55: Kawai Kenji except the vocals. Could be named "Music Sour Vol.2" [in fact, it is written BGM Vol.2 on the CD itself], since it's the PERFECT continuation of "Music Sour", with the same composers. Many, many short/long musics and bridges here, and moreover you are given two more OP/ED songs! The ONLY one which is NOT in the CDs is ED "Get Down" from Gilbert O'Sullivan-. Very enjoyable too. With only these 2 CDs, you may own 80% of all Maison Ikkoku BGM.

Maison Ikkoku Sound Theater 1 - episodes 1 / 2

Kitty KTCD-3001 (1990.6.25), Y3000
89 tracks, 71:22
#1 in a series of 48 CDs covering the entire TV series, 2 episodes on each.
Each booklet contains plentiful of screenshots from the 2 episodes synchronized with CD's track numbers, plus various infos and REAL pictures of special guests, characters clip, cast, Music Break Time, animation staff, OP/ED themes, etc.
The jacket itself is a cardboard box, with the booklet stuck on the inside left flap. All 48 jackets have a narrow sketch printed on their edge; once put side-by-side, they make a long nice picture featuring ALL the Maison Ikkoku characters. For the entire CD series, the narrator is Chiba Shigeru, Yotsuya's voice, whose craziness and sense of humour suit the narration and comments very well [however STRONG Japanese skill required to get it all].
The CD starts with an OP narration -by Chiba Shigeru- then OP theme, 1st half of 1st episode, guest corner where C. S. interviews a famous dubbing actor/actress from the series, 2nd half of 1st episode, Music Break Time where a "DJ" announces and plays one -or more- music themes from the series, OP narration, "nandemo corner" where C. S. talks about various aspects of the TV series, 2nd half of the 2nd episode, ED theme. While the 2 episodes are played, C. S. acts as an off-voice narrator, explaining some "visual" scenes and gags that could hardly be understood without his frenzied help.

Maison Ikkoku Forever Remix

Kitty KTCR-1166 (1992.7.25), Y2800
10 tracks: 10 vocal, 46:35
10 "remix" versions of several famous OP/ED from the TV series, except track 3, never heard before. The CD jacket contains many screen shots from TV series, rearranged, with all songs' words, composers' names etc. The front shows Kyouko-san, her blue dress and hair flying in the wind (very cute, even if she's drawn late Ranma character designs). The back side shows Kyouko-san's face in profile, with 8 altered versions. Like the Urusei Yatsura Best 10 Remix CD, some of the songs are outstanding (1, 8, 10), some pretty good (5, 6, 9) but some others rather poor (2, 7). The jacket says in French and in English: "Ces joyeuses musiques sont destin\'ees \`a tous ceux qui aimeront pour toujours l'histoire de la Maison-ikkoku." "These happy musics are dedicated to all the people who will love the story of Maison-ikkoku forever."}
