It was officially confirmed that the name of this composer is Takeshi Kuramochi? I found only some fansites mentioning this name.

It's not, but (I feel) having some sort of reading is better than nothing. This is the best I (and others, evidently) could come up with after looking into the reading of the name. If you want to remove it, go ahead.

I don't know what other people think, but in this case I agree. The only question if "武志" is Takeshi or Takeyuki, but it is very likely to be the first. I'll just add a brief statement to say that it isn't 100% confirmed.

I don't mind so much likely but unconfirmed readings on artist pages, as long as they're clearly marked as unconfirmed as this is, but I think setting them as display names so they show up linked on album pages and everywhere else is a bad, bad, bad idea. How many people are going to click through? I absolutely hate it when we're responsible for spreading misreadings (should be Kakeru).

Yeah, I agree. We should stick with the kanji characters for the display name if there is no confirmed reading.

Good point, CHz. For now, I'll remove the display name. I think sooner or later his real name will be revealed. On Konami website says he is involved in several projects... also, "trezire of spirit" is on Pop'n Music 18.
