One thing concerns me, though - the album for Ys VI was a 2-disc set. Although there's 8 CDs in this boxed set, 7 of them are re-releases (which is fine, I never managed to get them before anyway), but...
...only 1 CD for the new game music? Or is this just a limited set of music from the game, and the "real" album for the game will be 2 CDs as well...? Why the name "Pre-Arrange" instead of "Original Soundtrack/OSV"? It sounds almost as though it isn't the music from the game exactly, but more "raw" tracks before finished?
Or am I being too literal? I wish I knew Japanese.

Actually, you are spot-on. They are rough tracks, not the same as what will be heard in the final game... which is likely to have a separate, official OST release.
Thanks for confirming that.
And why would you not want the seven other discs? They're rereleases, but ... a pretty darn good deal any way you slice it. Particularly considering how much those same discs would go for on eBay or otherwise second-hand.
I didn't say I wouldn't want it (in fact, after an hour or two of drooling at the box-set after posting, I eventually caved in and sent my email to Falcom to place an order). I just wanted to be clear on what it was we were actually getting on that 8th CD, since I had seen the word "soundtrack" in the threads once or twice.
Problem is now, I'm likely going to have to order the OSV album separately when it's finally released - unless I can communicate to Falcom to ship it with my earlier order, if they make them available in time. With the language barrier, that might be tricky. ;^) Oh well... NBD...

Falcom is opening a can of worms. Now they're gonna have to remake Ys I & II with the same 3D graphics and engine. I think the Ys Eternal games were awesome, but how awesome would the Dark Fact battle be in 3D? Just think, they could call it Ys Forever. To me it sounds better than Eternal. Oh well, I'm sure I'm not the first person to bring this up, I just wanted to mention it anyway. I can't wait for the Oath in Felghana, I just got confirmation from Falcom yesterday that my order was accepted, with all the extras. I want to hear the new Redmont arrangement so bad!!!!!
