I still have to write a post for the Ecstasy BD collection. Overall I would say it was money well spent, because there were some cool interviews with the VA’s as well as Ookuma and Uesu. I wasn’t sure what to expect with the Ecstasy CD that came with the BD collection, but after listening to it, I can’t wait for the Departures Drama CD. It almost makes up for the anime not living up to the LN in terms of service scenes.
Nomi’s rates for Drama CD’s are $1 for every 30 seconds. Track 6 of the Ecstasy CD was 6:25. So the total cost of translation is $13 USD. The other tracks are either a little more than that or a little less. I’ll be updating the funding progress page and FAQ with more information regarding quotes for the rest of the CD as well as Nomi’s timetable for translating them.
