That screen depends on the MSX2 system you use. It might require more memory to at least load correctly.
It works for me depending on MSX2 system:

> mame canonv30 msx2_flop:dslayer4
shows what you posted and doesn't load

> mame hbf700p msx2_flop:dslayer4
shows what I posted and does load.

As far as the release date, I believe things like this in the past have reverted to the original release dates - especially since this is admittedly a "cart2disk" hack.
Unless it was an official release from the publisher, the date is largely irrelevant.

Yes, the first image should be working on a Japanese MSX system, the character refers to this char "「” and it's 0xA2.
Those Japanese chars are replaced with accented alphabets in the international MSX.

I don't see an issue then? The software operates as expected on the proper machine and the date is accurately represented based on the original release date of the game.

Closing.
