  • "Seija no Koushin" roughly translates as "March of a Saint".
  • "Yoru Made Matenai" roughly translates as "Don't Wait until Nighttime".
  • It seems that an error occurred in writing the names of the tracks on the album, as the name of the sixth track, "Op.13", is incorrect: the melody actually corresponds to the theme called "Slash", from the same game (Castlevania Rondo of Blood).
