Currently this label has the "T" logo as its image. Does anyone have any proof this is correct?

There are a ton of releases from TOKUMA JAPAN CORPORATION which don't have this "T":
http://vgmdb.net/album/5435 (JAPAN RECORD)
http://vgmdb.net/album/13485 (JAPAN RECORD)
http://vgmdb.net/album/24811 (Bourbon)
http://vgmdb.net/album/19156 (Animage)
http://vgmdb.net/album/23472 (Animage)
http://vgmdb.net/album/42681 (Animage)
http://vgmdb.net/album/23151 (Animage)
http://vgmdb.net/album/23150 (Animage)

So what I think is that "T" is a separate label:
http://vgmdb.net/album/5629
http://vgmdb.net/album/12514
http://vgmdb.net/album/14970
http://vgmdb.net/album/2521

If "T" is a separate label, then "TOKUMA JAPAN CORPORATION" can't have that "T" as its logo.

that "T" is on tokuma japan and tokuma japan communications game music albums with TKCA-3 catalogues and some TKCA-7
13 "GAME MUSIC T" albums (12 tokuma japan, 1 tokuma japan communications)
after that, they omitted the "GAME MUSIC" and seem to have stopped it around 1998

it's probably just a label for tokuma game music albums
honestly I don't think it's worth to be added in the imprint/label section as "T"

Tower Records thinks it went far beyond 1998:

I'm curious why you think it's "(not) worth to be added", but things like Animage Records and Japan Record are worth it.

tower records don't think, it's the only T logo you have after 1998 and I'm pretty sure it's an error from them

why? (sure you would ask)
because game albums didn't use it anymore and other non-ghibli animes stuff don't use it either so it can be assumed it's an error

now why not adding "T", first because it's ugly to have one letter for a label and second and most important reason is that you can't be sure T is the real name of that label
that probably stands for TOKUMA, or TOKUMA LABEL or TOKUMA RECORDS, there is no way to know since it's a labelmark and that the official site only shows active labels afaik

No, it's not the only one.

after some little searches, I found some tokuma releases with that "T"
my guess is that they probably removed the game music part in order to release stuff under that label
but I didn't find after 2004, as it's not on the official tokuma site that label must have been discontinued since some stuff are now released under other labels (like japan record)
