The notes say "Sota Fujimoto", but this is linked to Sota Fujimori. What's the story?

That was most certainly a typo (that has since been fixed). Notice that this scan and this one say Fujimori.

I'm still greatly amused that they spelled it CastleBania (with a B) multiple times on every page of printed material

Typical Engrish...
There's no "v" in Japanese so they use "bi" instead.

...which was probably intentional because they use a regular 'v' on the other half of material

Do all those scans come from the same set? Couldn't it be that there's a first press which has Castlebania everywhere and a second one which corrected the typo?

(I'll check mine later)

Nice catch, Gambler.

There must have been a reprint. I supplied the front, back, obi and tray images, and my copy has every instance of "Castlevania" spelled correctly. All of Myrkul's booklet scans (and disc images) have "Castlebania".

I can supply booklet scans if necessary.

EDIT: Just remembered I didn't originally supply new booklet images with my original upload because I had a hard time getting some of the blacks (there's a lot of semi-glossy black on matte black) to show up. I'll see what I can do and provide alternate images sometime soon.

If Myrkul scans are from Mr. P. Castlevania's Realm (http://www.vgmuseum.com/mrp/2/soundtrack-chron.htm), then that's my copy. ^^

I think Devi Kobayashi, Shin Chan, Jigokuguruma Nakamura must be credited here as arrangers of Roland SC-55 ver. tracks because these tracks are same as in KICA-7615. In this album they only louder.

The X68000 version contains a file with some dev notes from the sound team. Anyone willing to translate?

Shin-Chan=programmer
Nakamura=in charge of composition/arrangement together with Kobayashi
Kobayashi=in charge of guitar sounds and about half of composition/tuning

This one is pretty hard to find in the database. Why is it listed under Castlevania (NES)? Why not make a separate entry for Castlevania Chronicles?

Is there any way to confirm the "2nd pressing" with V instead of B came out between 2001/23/05 and the 2003/05/22?

I understand it must be, since there is no other difference, code, date etc.
But I am wondering, it could be a late reprint even if it doesn't mention this anywhere. I suppose it would be illegal to do so (e.g. reprint this album in 2005 without changing the necessary information), but the fact that this album can still be purchased brand new from a couple of places makes me wonder if it was reprinted much later than 2003/05.

Another explanation could be that it was printed in much larger quantities after the B/V error was fixed, unlike albums like CotM/HoD and AoS/DoS which were definitely small prints (thank you konamistyle as usual).

Any information or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I do appreciate this OST very much, even though it's partly a reprint, and partly the same tracks with different MIDI sounds + a remixed OST.

The bottom of this page says:

The Block-4 music track, "Bloody Tears" in Arrange mode is slightly different in the International and later Japanese PSN releases.
How exactly is it 'slightly different'? Is it a loop thing or is the music actually different in tempo/instruments/whatever?

The pitch is actually a little higher in all versions except the original JP release:

ORIGINAL JP: https://youtu.be/W5F1INMlwfc?t=1233

ALL OTHER RELEASES: https://youtu.be/DvLpnBPboTo?t=368

You probably already figured it out since it has been 3 years...
