OBI question 15 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hi,
the FAQ about OBI STRIP clearly describes the meaning of "Yogaku" symbol.
I have also seen L and X symbols on OBIs.
Can anyone explain what do these symbols mean?

Thanks in advance,
Vlad.

Hi Vlad,

Good question - Can you please provide some images or links to releases on the site that have these symbols?

Thanks, Sam.

Re:OBI question 15 Years, 8 Months ago Karma: 2  
I have asked one of the guy's who helped with the original obi FAQ and we shall see. In the meantime I think the L may mean the opposite of the Y - ie. Japanese - or perhaps a type of Japanese such as "modern Japanese"?

I notice that Flower Travellin' Band releases have the L.

Maybe it is, but i don't think so. If you take a close look, you will see these symbols always stand near the date of release. I think these symbols have something to do with this date. Let's see.
