Both arranged by Yukihiro Jindo. (Note that "Jill" is also credited as an arranger on Oath in Felghana's OST, but he only arranged one track: "Believe In My Heart." The rest were all arranged by Yukihiro Jindo.)
Also... I disagree. While I do think the Chronicles OST isn't *quite* as well-arranged as Felghana's, I still think it's a really well-put-together soundtrack overall, and I came to appreciate it more once I heard it in the context of the game (tracks I didn't much like when I listened to the soundtrack on CD, I now like after hearing how well they fit the action in-game).
There's high-quality scans of those two pictures with the background. Never seen the rest in bigger resolution before (well, expect maybe the guy with the wings - don't remember). Could you please show me the rest of photo thumbnails, or better yet, high-res scans? I'm always interested in growing my already huge collection of Ys pictures.
Did anyone here ever play through the Japanese version of Ys Book I & 2 on PC Engine? I suspect that this image might have been censored for the US version, but I didn't have any energy left to play through yet another version of Ys II (especially since you have to finish Ys I first on PCE)...
