Is it possible to write "P" and "G" mirrored as written in the cover? The two characters are the only ones I couldn't transcribe.

I don't think it's supposed to be a backwards latin letter S, anyway.

И is the CYRILLIC CAPITAL LETTER I
Ƨ is the LATIN CAPITAL LETTER TONE TWO

Where does the new title for the hidden track come from?

(By the way, about the album title, note that every letter is backwards. You just don't notice it on the symmetric ones.)

why isn't it "the mayans", because "people of maya" sounds too literal

There's an additional slip of paper inside the booklet that talks about the bonus track, and the title is in there. I wonder if Leaves Of Augustia or Augustian Leaves would be a better translation, though?

If any forum members speak Tamil, maybe they can tell us what's going on in this spoken bonus track...

There is? Separate from the book and just stuck in there? That means my copy isn't complete.

I got the hidden track name from wikipedia here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phantas...matsu_album%29 It shows the title as アガスティアの葉. That is the closest approximation to the katakana I could come up with.

If it is not the correct name, I apologize. I only have a small working knowledge of Japanese. Perhaps Augustia is a better translation.

The last track definitely shouldn't be romanized as "Augustere". Tha kana says アガスティア which is Agastya in English. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Agastya
So "Agastya Leaves" would be more correct.

Not sure what the Uuzuk credit is supposed to be for.

Backwards reading of Chinatsu Kuzuu. There's a paragraph about the meaning of it on the Japanese wikipedia. Something about the original language being Uuzuk in Final Fantasy and the song being sung in this language.

https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E8%91...8D%83%E5%A4%8F

PS: I just noticed I didn't add scans on this one. Will add them later on.

Regarding the hidden track, following on from cybero75 and Keiyuu's comments (and overturning my earlier, uninformed one) I'm going to go ahead and change the title to Agastya Leaves.
