ToS OVA Site-Release and ED Info

The Tales of Symphonia OVA site finally updated with release and ending theme information.

Gonna point out first that the episode will have two ending themes, it would seem. One referred to as the ending theme and one as the grand ending theme.
The ending theme is called "Hikari furu basho de ~Promesse~" by Akiko Shikata.
The grand ending theme is "Kaze wa harukana asu wo shiru" also by Shikata (embedded below).
