Is there any anime composer with more
hypemusic than Hiroyuki Sawano?
>Shingeki No Kyojin
>Kill La Kill
Why are Sawanofags ignorant of his only great OST?
The show had shaky writing but the soundtrack is by far his best and you can't deny that.
He's hype but it sounds all the same, Still doesn't make it bad though.
I'd put Kato Tatsuya above anyone in the industry.
Aldnoah was a shit show, but OST for it was actually pretty damn good. Probably, second best after UC.
And I listened nanatai OST. It has, like, one good track - perfect time, rest is either just generic Sawano or incomprehensible orchestral mess.
taky iwasak motherfuckaw
Sawano used to be good, but he keeps doing the same thing over and over again so it has gone stale by now. I mean, I guess it's still good, but I just can't stand listening to his music anymore.
At least Iwasaki Taku can still shake things a bit once in a while.
Few years back Kajiura was the main target for 'it's fine, I guess, but all her stuff sounds the same.' Sort of like Suwano is now. Once Suwano gets back to doing one, maybe two OSTs a year, he'll stop being the posterboy for "Suwano a best!", "no, it all sounds the same."
Iwasaki and Sawano are examples of guys who used to do 10/10 OST, like Gurren Lagann and Unicorn, but because they do so much stuff per year, it started to become repetitive.
Kajiura was also like that, but after she calmed down, it got very good again.I don't even watch SAO, but I still listened to the OST.
Kara no Kyoukai OST is still her best one though, since it was the apex of both her career and kalafina's.
>all that animation
>all that character design
>can already see another generic plot
Why you keep doing this, japan?
Of course the opposite is problematic too, my favourite composers are Kawai Kenji and Tashihiko Sahashi. Tracking down their recent OSTs is difficult sometimes. Like Kawai Kenji did an amazing OST for Monsterz, but good luck finding more than CDjapan's 30 second samples anywhere on the internet.
He still has really good central themes. Vogel im Kafig is amazing, Nui's theme is nuts, and... I'm sure there's some great themes in A/0 too. The problem is past his central motifs, he fills in the rest of the ost with similar sounding stuff. The way I see it, most composers have 1 amazing OST a year. Each ost they do splits the quality. So the more they do a year, the more that one amazing ost is diluted with filler.
Looking at IMDB, Kajiura was super-saturated around 2005-2006.
