Am I the only person that's had enough of this composer? Guy just won't go away... Just look at all this:
> Blue Exorcist 2011
> Sengoku Basara: The Last Party
> Guilty Crown 2011
> Blue Exorcist Movie 2012
> Attack on Titan 2013
> Kill la Kill 2013

> Xenoblade Chronicles X 2015 (I know, it's a game)
> Seraph of the End: Battle in Nagoya 2015

At least he dropped the German shit in Owari no Seraph.

And? Whats wrong with him?

UH

UH UH YEAH

>>135095667
You are among friends.
Sawano is a hack. Everything he does sounds the same.
>>
But he's the best composer please understand. I personally liked the sengoku basara soundtrack but everything else is just boring.

Xenoblade could have been so much better without this guy thats the only thing he ruined for me.
>>
>>135095908

He gets forced into making reddit upboat tier, LE EPIC SAWANO VOCAL DROP xD tracks?

His work on xenoblade X is the worst offender of this shit as a majority of the tracks don't fit in any of the scenes.
>>
Time to not look at who is composing the ost anon.Just get annoyed when you start listening.OST is not really important to me for a show, just an extra.
>>
Him and Yuki Kajiura. I have a feeling they both wouldn't be so bad if people stopped asking them for the same soundtrack over and over.
>>
>>135095667
Sawano's already rolled out his magnum opus with Unicorn, what's wrong with giving him easy work?
>>
>>135095991
HELLO ?
>>
>>135095667
He's basically the only good anime composer working regularly so nope, not really.
The others good ones are either slow as shit (Taku), work on only a certain category of anime (Shirou), or very hit or miss (Kato), and everyone else are talentless shit or only work on anime once.

I want my anime to have some sort of noticeable soundtrack, thank you.
>>
>>135095667
He's doing way too much shit in too short a time period. and most people just throw him projects without actual directing, so he keeps doing the same shit over and over.

I honestly can't see why people enjoy his OST outside Unicorn and Basara. The vocal shit is downright obnoxious.
>>
>>135096142
At least Kajiura comes and goes nowadays, plus she's easily able to make other stuff (look at her earlier work), but it's always the same stuff that ends up getting made. Still makes good work from time to time though, can't write her out, probably would have done a better job with F/SN than that lifeless composer they went with.

You can barely get a season without Sawano now. Unicorn was good, but after that...
>>
I really liked his Sengoku Basara soundtrack, probably because it was the first one I heard from him.

After that, it's all been the same shit over and over again. I guess Unicorn was nice too.
His vocal tracks in particular now annoy me to no end.

>>135096121
The worst part is that most of the time Sawano's stuff clashes really hard with the show you're watching. It's impossible to ignore.

You know who needs to do more anime OST?

Keiichi Okabe.

His work on Jojo is great. But it's hard to pick favorites with anime composers because a single composer has to encompass many styles and genres, and you may not a fan of some of those styles and genres. You can usually determine who's good and who isn't though.

>muh Unicorn and Basara
I always knew /a/ had questionable taste, but knocking Ao no Exorcist's OST? Seriously?

Admittedly SnK and Owari no Seraph were disasters, and only a third of KLK's soundtrack was any good, but AnE was great quality of the show aside. Every track worked. I doubt many of the fags in this thread have even heard its soundtrack, let alone watched the anime.
>>
>>135096375

>Would have done a better job

No, not at all. Kajiura herself has said that composing for Fate was incredibly hard for her and the way production was handled for UBW (music was composed as the scenes were being animated and adjusted on the fly), Kajiura would have gotten overwhelmed.

Ao no Exorcist feels like the beginning of the end. It was okay, but all the others that came after sound mostly the same, so I started hating it.
>>
>>135095667
I liked his work on Nanatsu no taizai enough to buy the soundtracks, but other than that, he's absolute shit tier.
>>
>>135098683
The more you know: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=29931

He actually worked with Mark Mancina on the Blood+ OST.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PGeJn4aIqg
>>
His Soundtracks have some common sounds but if you dig deeper you find the tracks that make them unique. Unfortunately the sound directors love the EPIC CHOIRS and the INSERT SONGS and neglect the other half of the OST. Everybody remembers MKAlieZ, but who is even aware of aldnoah0rch-adlib or haondla-orez1?

>>135096285
>slow as shit (Taku

Iwasaki usually works on two shows each year, one for each big season. Next year he's even doing two shows in the same season (Bungou and Stray Dogs and Qualidea Code). If anything, Iwasaki needs to slow down to one show per year like he did before 2010. Other than Gatchaman Crowds, his recent efforts haven't been nearly as good as what they used to be.

I genuinely feel bad for Iwasaki, because half the shows he composes for are either downright terrible or absolutely forgettable. He never gets as much high-profile work as Sawano or Kajiura or Kanno, even though I think he's on par with Kanno and vastly superior to the other two.

You're right. Honestly he's made alot of good music that people overlook, like his j-drama "Mare" OSTs which are good examples of this and it really shows off music you wouldn't normally expect from him. The fact that he makes the same sounding epic music, and makes insert songs is always a given at this point, it's what made him who he's known for today. I just wish he took on more and different projects to where he can diversify himself more often like he can.

>>
>>135095667

No he really needs to fuck off already for sure. Not every single fucking big blockbuster action anime has to have his droning movie trailer music and shrieking banshee female or rapping idiot male singer drowning out whatever else is supposed to be happening. It's making almost every action shows soundtrack sound pretty much exactly the same like what's happening with the MCU in Western cinema and yet so many people think he's just amazing and crushing it in new limit pushing ways every time when the truth is his music hasn't evolved or changed in probably about 3-4 years now since he did the Kill la Kill soundtrack. That's when I really started to get tired of the guy and that will be 3 years ago soon.

Gross exaggeration, and frankly I wouldn't care. I wouldn't care if she were a hoax and actually a front for fifty different people. I'm not an artist, I'm a consumer, and if her name on a show gets me a good OST, that's all I care about.

I thought Sawano would be in charge of BnHA's soundtrack since the music used in the trailers sounds a lot like his work, but I'm not so sure anymore since he's doing that Attack on Zombies Trainwreck thing right now instead.

Regardless, BnHA's music sure sounds a lot like Sawano in his Unicorn days, no stupid vocals or Hans Zimmer banging. I really hope it's him.

It does sound like his kind of music. I'd love for him to compose for BnHA instead of Kabaneri next year honestly, but I just don't think it'll happen. I remember everyone saying Sawano was composing for OPM with it's 2nd PV. People are sounding more and more like Sawano if this keeps up.

That probably has to do with why you like it. It's less that his soundtracks are awful and more that they're just very repetitive, so it gets stale if you've heard it before.
