I don't think I'd quite go THAT far (Xanadu Next and Ys are two very different experiences!), but Xanadu Next is indeed a really great game. It's not really that comparable to Ys, but they do share some similarities, and they're both pretty freakin' awesome.
I just looked up Frane and found that www.exe-create.co.jp has demos of all three games (at www.exe-create.co.jp/download/download.htm)and they are available now for paid download through vector.co.jp (and you can download games there from overseas and don't need a Japanese credit card). There is even a Frane 3 gaiden that is a vertical shmup. I also saw that vector has another action rpg from exe-create called Vampire Hurts that looks nice. If there are any faqs out there or more info in general on these games (well, the shmup probably doesn't need one) I'd be really curious to know more about them (and thanks to Gillian Seed for mentioning the games!)
