I'd like to know where a couple of things come from regarding this album. I searched the whole booklet, obi and such and can't find instances of Snatcher being in between tildes at all. To me, the title should be MIDI POWER ver.5.0 SNATCHER because it shows up like this frequently. I also only found one instance of the characters フンイキ福井, for Funiki Fukui, and it's just a special thanks. I don't see him credited for the arrangement anywhere.

Technically, if we go by the spine (back scan) it's just "MIDI POWER ver.5.0". So the 'Snatcher' part in the front could be considered a subtitle.

Subtitles have been added in the past with "title - sub", "title ~sub~"... styles, but we are trying to standarize them using a "title: sub" format. So "MIDI POWER ver.5.0: SNATCHER" or "MIDI POWER ver.5.0 SNATCHER" are ok.

No idea about Fukui.

Okay, I'll adopt the usage of the colon, since most everywhere uses it for subtitles I think.

I don't agree with SNATCHER being a subtitle at all. The other MIDI POWER CDs list the games in all the same places SNATCHER is being listed and we don't consider them subtitles. It just looks like a subtitle right here because it's the only game being listed in those spots.

The old series did not mention the game titles, but the Pro series does; I suggest we follow suit. I also suggest that kana-only be equated to CAPITALS because it goes better with all the other albums (and this goes for more than just the MIDI Power series here).

Capitalizing a title because it was translated from all kana makes zero sense to me.

Yeah, I don't think the game titles technically belong on this album or on vol.4.

I've standardized the capitalization and subtitle usage on the MIDI POWER ver.x.0 albums then.

The front scan here looks a little scratchy and I uploaded an improved scan.
