Default Ai Yamashita (#15112)

Who on earth is this person?

Her composition "Canticle" from FF14 Before Meteor (Alphinaud's theme) (arranged by Soken) is quite striking, it reminds me of Mitsuhiro Kaneda's style. It stands out from the rest of the OST. And her two contributions to Hanjuku Hero 4: Shichinin no Hanjuku Hero are also good!

I haven't gotten to Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town (GBA) and its sequel yet, or the Nintendo stuff.

This bit from the SE Music article probably explains the FF14 connection:
In 2007, Yamashita scored the Internet Explorer game Elebest developed by Square Enix subsidiary Taito. Her co-composer was Square Enix's quirky sound editor Masayoshi Soken.

Mainly a sound editor who occasionally composed too, seems to have disappeared in the early 2010s ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Dug through some credits and Yamashita also did music for the Wii game Ikenie no Yoru, with Masayoshi Soken as the lead. The Nintendo Puzzle Collection credit is also specifically only for the Yoshi's Cookie portion of the game, not the whole thing as the old SEMO profile suggests.
