    Well, as far as I know, with the Dragon’s Fury/ Devil’s Crush soundtrack for the Genesis version, Toshiaki Sakoda wasn’t involved. Toshiharu Yamanishi was the main composer and arranger of that version, so he was responsible for *A Breach of Contract* arrange and also the whole soundtrack. It sounds a lot like him, who also likes heavy metal music for sure (Thunder Force IV for example), just like Sakoda-san.

      You’re totally right, Danmakuman. My fault for looking it up on the spot which just generalized the composers. Hope you enjoyed the show otherwise :) but man, they do share a lot of stylistic similarities!

    I am still trying to catch up on episodes (on episode 29) but I was so excited to see this episode pop up. I used to play this game all the time as a child I cant wait to get to this one!
