Mak, I got the same little drawing when he signed my Lost Files. I'll upload my pics a bit later. I also got a couple pics with him (the singer girl snapped the pics down in the dealers room). I saw Discoalucard (Kurt) in line for the panel and he had the motherload of Mana goodness (soundtracks for SD2 and 3, 2 SD3 carts and I think a Secret of Mana cart) for Kikuta to sign. Hope he found him in the dealer's room, lol.
The Island of Lost Souls tracks were to a fighting game that Square was apparently supposed to put out, but apparently got canceled . I think I worded my question, "Can you elaborate on the Lost Files album and specifically, the six Island of Lost Souls tracks", but I think the translator only picked up on the part about the Island tracks, because the answer was really detailed. He didn't really pick out anything else (Yura was saying something about a version he recorded that didn't make the cut and was only available at Otakon...I wasn't sure which track he was talking about).
I actually heard him say he did over a hundred tracks for Seiken 2, but only about 40 or so made the cut. I was surprised how long he said it took to compress his music for the SNES. 1 day to compose, 7 days to compress. Wonder what a "full" version of the Seiken OST's sound like. Hmm...
And that one dude from OCR got a really kick-ass gift from Kikuta: A copy of the Seiken 3 OST with his own personal artwork on it. Yowza!
Yura was funny. He kept ripping on Activision (or was it just Blizzard?) and the "other" Mana games (I'm guessing he meant to say "Dawn of Mana" and not "Legend of Mana"? lol). But yeah...I haven't even seen the Otakon opening animation thing yet. With all due respect, that 3-person Q&A was the Hiroki Kikuta panel basically.
