I haven't been able to find anything actually explaining why this Akira is the same as the Seibu Kaihatsu composer Akira Sato, besides the fact that they write "Akira" in the same unusual (but not unique) way.

Give his music a listen and you'll see it's the same person. For example, listen to some tracks from Illumina and listen to some Raiden tracks, it's especially apparent in the Genesis / MegaDrive version of Raiden.

We have a higher standard of proof than writing similar-sounding music, but I just noticed that Akira Sato thanks someone named PANDA in the Raiden arcade soundtrack, and since the eroge composer Akira worked with someone named PANDA a lot, maybe this thing has legs after all.

Just wanted to say that the insert also says KIYOTAKA, which most likely refers to Kiyotaka Sato. He also worked on F&C/IDES games just as Akira and PANDA did. Also there's no confirmation but PANDA is speculated to have also been a member of MUSE. We do know for a fact that Yoshihito/Yoshito Hata was a member tho, because the manual for Ballade for Maria says "Recording Director Yoshihito Hata (MUSE)". There's a screenshot but it's on E-Hentai so I'm not sure it would be okay to link that lol.
