Updated notes for Disc 2.

Credited as much as I can based on other entries in VGMdb and the tracklist provided on Hiroyuki Sawano's official website.

There was one song where I wasn't sure who the arranger was, this song being disc 2, track 9. I don't know whether it is Sawano himself, or just the original song with a different singer, so I left the arrangement credits for that song out entirely.

I'll probably make some changes to this entry at some stage.

I'll provide scans when I do make major changes, but for now I've only updated Disc 2 M-09 to say that the arrangement is by Hiroyuki Sawano.

I've added scans to this album now. IF anyone wants to do so, they can edit the notes of the album accordingly, but if no one does it, I'll do it myself when I get the time this weekend.

The linked artists are wrong... Well, some of them. There are artists that are duplicated. Rico as example

Yeah they were kind of a mess. I've cleaned up everything and linked them again, let us know if there are other mistakes now.

I have a question about the vocal credits in the notes for this album on the second disc.

Can we credit the vocalists to how they would be credited with the metadata? So, Aimer would be credited as "SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:Aimer" as such.

I know VGMdb normally doesn't go by metadata, since the booklet is more reliable (especially when metadata tends to be user-inputted), but I was just curious about whether it'd be better to do so or not.

For reference, here's what I have it tagged as in my music library:

SawanoHiroyuki[nZk] is just the name of the vocal project, generally we don't include those in the performer field.

I'd actually like to go back and change the way those groups are credited. It could easily be done as "Project Name (Vocalist)". I'm already using this new format for Sangatsu no Phantasia, for example.

It would apply to those few odd projects that don't have pages like supercell, EGOIST, mimimemeMIMI, and this one. I can understand why someone would want all the credits on one page.

"Project Name (Vocalist)" sounds fine to me, I thought we were talking about adding a "SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:Aimer" alias to Aimer.

Maybe ask SS before changing all of them? Especially supercell and EGOIST since it's a lot of stuff.

Yes, he was asking for it to be an alias. I just think the better solution would be to add a unit page for SawanoHiroyuki[nZk] using that format.

The only reason I haven't done it yet is because, like you said, it's a lot of stuff.

An alias for every [nZk] vocalist would be better than created an unit pages for each one i think.

So the artist field would look like `SawanoHiroyuki[nZk] (Tiellle, NaNami, Aimer)` with a new page for the SawanoHIroyuki[nZk] project. I think I am fine with this over the overloading of aliases.

The tricky part seems to be making the new artist appear at the beginning of the performer list rather than the end. I have to switch the IDs around a bit to make it work. Or un-link all the performers and then re-link them in the new order.

I'll probably start with the supercell and EGOIST pages. If someone else wants to do the SawanoHiroyuki[nZk] pages, you're welcome to.

Usually I do it this way:
Change the ID of the first vocalist to the new unit
Unlink all the other vocalists that have to go under that unit
Relink the vocalists and add them in the unit, so they appear in the correct order

Works fine most of the time assuming the ordering of the artists is already correct.

Should be all linked up: http://vgmdb.net/artist/25078

Let me know if I missed something or you need some help with ryo's stuff.

Oh wow, you guys really took this on board. Not sure if it looks neater or not, to be completely honest, but I do like how you've done it.

Good job VGMdb team
