So this peak my interest as I didn't know where my copy came from.

Matches a dump from ackmed, with ringcode <610-7146-0075>HJ404A.

The origin of this disc is Dreamcast Magazine GD-ROM May 1999. Some info and pics can be found at Segagagadomain.
Thank you guys for nailing another rarity. :D
I have Cyber Troopers Virtual-On Oratorio Tangram 5.66 Customization Disc from Dreamcast Magazine GD-ROM Vol.6 August 11th issue. I also have the Fur Fighters: The Exclusive Demo Disc is a demo disc of Fur Fighters released "exclusively" with issue #10 of DC-UK and unlike the other released demo disc with Fur Fighters that is paired with a DOA 2 rolling demo. This one contains single and multiplayer levels to enjoy and not just multiplayer. It is the only demo disc sold with the magazine throughout its twenty-month run. There was also the Frame Gride Test Operation Disc that came with Dreamcast Express demo disc but I have all those and they don't really fall into my question and that being are there any other magazines with dedicated demo disc to a certain game? If so got any info on which issues etc? Want to grab some of those and I have gotten some cool ones thinking back and not knowing only getting the disc portion of the deal.

Eternal Arcadia @barai-ban was also bundled with a Famitsu magazine. Bought one (theoretically) complete recently, but it's still in storage in Japan.
According to listing on YAJ, it was Weekly Famitsu No.618 October 20, 2000 Special Edition. Once it arrives, I will be able to confirm.

The rest of the listed info seems quite accurate to me.
