Apparently Yuki Iwai became in charge of Wavelink Zeal as of nov 2007 (here). She also composed for R-Type Tactics 2.

Takayuki Iwai doesn't seem to be around anymore nor part of Wavelink Zeal, he didn't work on R-Type Tactics 1 or 2. I wonder what happened to him...

EDIT (I'll throw here this) Yuki Iwai has a tenor sax younger brother, 里村稔

Wavelink Zeal apparently doesn't exist any more; it's now just Yuki Iwai's personal site. On her bio, she lists the dissolution as 2007, which was the same time she took it over from Takayuki. The Wavelink Zeal site was up through 2012 and updated a couple of times, so I'm not sure if she actually decided in 2007 to dissolve it or if she retroactively made the decision that that's when it was "over."

In any case, I guess that's some more confirmation that Takayuki wasn't around after 2007.

Necrobumping for a site renewal: http://www.twin.ne.jp/~zeal/index.html

There are some career timelines on the bio page, I'm pretty sure most of this info has already been available through archives & Facebook but here goes:

2000: Takayuki & Yuki Iwai leave Capcom and start freelance activity under the Wavelink Zeal name.

2007: Takayuki stops Wavelink Zeal work in 2007 and joins Crafts & Meister, where he's a sound producer & director. Yuki blogged about suddenly taking over Wavelink Zeal but she was weirdly vague about it, not mentioning at all that Takayuki left for a corporate job (which seems totally normal), so I don't know if there's more to the story or if it was just an unexpected hiring and she thought the details weren't important.

2013: Takayuki leaves Crafts & Meister. Wavelink Zeal finally fizzles out and dies.

Either 2013 or 2014: Takayuki & Yuki form a new group for freelance work, ZEAL★DoQMaL.
