Shunsuke Kikuchi Receives 2nd Place Award from JASRAC
Published by 25 May 2011, 12:08 PM EDT (also adapted and translated by Anime News Network) has revealed that Dragon Ball background music composer Shunsuke Kikuchi has received the 2nd place “International Award” from the Japanese Society for Right of Authors, Composers, and Publishers (“JASRAC”) for the amount of money generated overseas in the previous year thanks to his score for Dragon Ball Z. Kikuchi also received the 9th place award for his work on Doraemon.

With Kikuchi’s original score for the series currently being retroactively inserted into Dragon Ball Kai (as well as being featured in the arcade game Zenkai Battle Royale and the Japanese releases of the Raging Blast video games, not to mention international releases and streams of the TV series), it is no surprise to see Kikuchi so high on the list. Congratulations!
