Should we change the English translations to reflect the CAVE International Store's translation?

The main differences I see are for stage 3 and stage 4.

The Cave shop's titles for tracks 3, 6, 7, and 9 are all the same as #gamemp3s' translations, which I believe originated them (not 100% though). Even has the same typo of "bestial" in track 3. Dag made the adjustments to our current tracklist, so he can weigh in with his thoughts.

The stage 3 translation at the very least seems not that great, as Shinju Forest (Shinjugamori / シンジュが森) is a place in the Mushi games. There's no character "Shinju."

Another shameless publisher who doesn't do their own homework?
I mean, "Is Shinju in the Forest Rebel Army?". What.

Anyway:
03 typo (this was caught by Medina)
06 Surely the が in "シンジュが森" confused them. This was def. wrong.
07 #gamemp3s's sounds better, but it isn't exactly 'armored' but 'shelled' (Beast King) so I kept it more literal.
09 I don't think 喚く is used for "roar" (ie.- ferocious) --I take the track says 'you' scream.

Since it's 'official' now (urgh), I guess you could add it to this reprint, while keeping the original untouched, if you want to keep both translations around.
