=========

Note: In the original printing, there was a spelling mistake on the back scan for track 22 that was corrected in the subsequent reprinting. This mistake is reflected in the tracklist for KICA-1005. Also note that the misspelling exists in the booklet tracklist in all printings.

Note: although the first two tracks are presented as "Arrange", in truth only the first, "遥かなる凱旋" is an original arrange by Kukeiha Club. Track 2 comes straight from the arcade Akumajo Dracula (Haunted Castle). It's called "arrange" since it's a new version of Bloody Tears which was originally composed for Simon's Quest.

Track 1 can also be found in: KICA-1131, VX010-J1, KMUS-0001.
