VARIOUS ARTISTS / Go-Busters Complete Song File (2013)

Few things in this world turn my heart to jelly like toku actors singing their own theme songs. Here, the effect is increased exponentially as the entire team perform duets with their associated robotic partners. The main villains and the heroes’ sentient mecha even get in on the action. The range of styles here is beyond impressive: j-pop, rock, swing, salsa, ska, circus music and even some very surface-level hip-hop and electronic sensibilities. There are some tv-sized versions of insert music to deal with and the Red Senshi’s sister bizarrely gets a song, but that fat can easily be trimmed from a collection this big.

Songs of Note: Blue Banana Moon; Perfection

4 Perfect Imperfections out of 5

Nutted by NEG (while Morphin and Movin!)
