Review
Like the Arjuna OST, there are two Maaya songs on this mini-album. Well I suppose one could say there's only 1 and 1/2 Maaya songs since one of them is a remix.

The first Maaya track is Sanctuary, a short yet beautiful song. It's very slow, similar to Kuuki to Hoshi, but also more dark and moody. The other track is Saigo no Mameshiba, which is basically a remix version of Mameshiba. It's shorter and starts up slower compared to the original version. This song was used during the ending credits of the last episode of the anime.
