The soundtrack is great. Any idea how to track it down?

Hibana is going to be the first "Netflix Original" (best-seller adaptation) produced in Japan and I'm curious to see how popular it's going to be. The first three episodes I've seen so far didn't really strike me as something that would appeal to the same market as the US productions though. They aren't bad by any means and have the same film-like approach like many modern shows but "foreign" movies aren't something people flock to in hordes. I'm looking forward to watch the rest anyways and that every director has two episodes spanning a time period of the main characters sounds cool too.
