Shocking news. I just found out "Aoi Yoshiki" (and not "Yoshiki Aoi", for that matter) is not a person, but a unit. I added the two musicians to the database.

That's quite a discovery, Zanasea. It'll be fun trying to decipher who composed what on the Drag-Dragoon 2 album.

I wonder if these two are regulars in the anime industry?

Are you sure this is the correct name order? Drag-on Dragoon 2 credits have "Yoshiki Aoi", and 吉勇あおい returns no actual results in google.

It's not common to have the surname written in hiragana, but then again this isn't a "real" name anyway.

So, as this isn't a real name, why isn't it "Yoshiki Aoi"?

This is really weird. According to the Drag-on Dragoon 2 OST liner notes translation Yoshiki Aoi is a person. WTF?

I handled the translation, and yes, it is handled as if Aoi was a single person, but that doesn't mean that what's written above isn't correct. I was just rendering the text more or less "as written", and decided that it was talking about Aoi as a person, and went with that rather than inserting what I learned from here.

New project for this enigmatic duo:

Trailer music sounds promising.

Great news! Thanks Chris (and Don). They must have a musical act as a day job, or something. I've never been able to find out much about either over the years. I can't fathom why they (or Sano and Aihara) weren't tapped for Drakengard 3.

Bio blurb on them here: http://www.junglewalk.co.jp/369/staff.html. No terribly interesting info about them, except when they formed (2003) and where they graduated (Matsumoto: Tokyo College of Music, Yu: Tokyo University of the Arts).

Based on web mentions and other profiles, it seems like they're mysterious because they're not especially prolific: arrangement/orchestration/performance credits on songs here and there with the occasional score.

Here are some other works beyond the scope of VGMdb:
