Wow, what a nostalgia trip of a listen... also, this is adorable. The chiptune idiosyncrasies (the lead instrument, the way you use the triangle in certain passages, etc.) seem to complement the character of the piece pretty well.

Some wrong chords in the arps, but they're sympathetic enough and don't really distract unless the listener's being a real tryhard about it so whatever.

Thank you very much for the feedback, very much appreciated.

Regarding the chords:
If comparing to the original piece, then yes; there are differences in the chords. I fully and well know this, as I based this mostly on the original music notation. My intent wasn't so much to make a 100% note-for-note arrangement as it was to make an arrangement that worked well for the 2A03 and to my tastes, and there are at least two other places in which it strays from the original other than the arpeggiated chords.
