I can't seem to properly identify the first of the two kanji for the first track. For some reason it seems to be listed as せっき everywhere on the net.

Google says the first is indeed an imaginary kanji, so we must leave it hiragana.

Oh, I didn't know there were such things, but that explains why it's never used. So what's せっ記 supposed to mean then (if anything)?

This read, せっ記 means an unwritten story that has been passed on by word of mouth. A translation can be Ashitaka Folklore or something, I guess.

Thanks, I added a translation and romanization (though I'm not completely sure how 公 should be romanized in this case).
