For the Kikuchi's OST lovers - Can we all Assume that M249 and M250 are the same track?

Haiayaaaa again, sorry for bother, but this case is something about the Kikuchi score that my mind always gets confused when I'm about to think in a conclusion for it. "Departing The Island" (M249) And "Kame Sennin Speaks of Friends° (M250) are the same track, yes or no? Please tell me your thoughts...

Re: Can someone explain to me this score removal in the "Sleeping Princess in Devil's Castle" dubs?

I've thought about that for a while in the past, but it actually doesn't make any sense imo "The Tree of Might" theme in DBZ Movie 3 had several arrangements, and some of them featured the exactly same chorus section, but the entire score of the movie can be normally heard in the international relea...

Re: Any DB character themes that are as prominent as Piccolo’s from the original?

They can be, but they don’t originate as such. It’s a lot better IMO to make motifs that don’t spring from the OP, or sometimes even incorporate a motif into either an OP, ED, or insert song (though this only happens if the same composer works on all of those). I know it's ur opinion, I agree and d...

Can someone explain to me this score removal in the "Sleeping Princess in Devil's Castle" dubs?

Haya! I think that's my first topic XD Well, what I'm talking about, this is actually a old issue, but I just had the idea of asking a reason for it now. If I'm not wrong, in any international version of Dragon Ball Movie 2 "Sleeping Princess in Devil's Castle", two BGMs are missing, one when Bulma ...

Re: Should they stop making English version of the songs for the international audience?

I actually doesn't care for them still doing it, but The "Engrish" versions of (Flow) Hero - Kibou no Uta and (Daichi Miura) Blizzard are bad imo, so, for me, they shouldn't stop doing it, but they shouldn't have started doing it too. (Maximum The Hormone) 'F' and (Momoiro Clover Z) Pledge of Z didn...

Sorry for the silly question, but was Raging Blast 2 Yamamoto' last work in the series?
Because I just searched for the Ultimate Tenkaichi ost and noticed that he wasn't the composer, but Hiroshi Takaki.
Sorry for the mistake, I'm talking about Yamamoto.

Re: Why Kai 1.0's Kikuchi Score was so limited.

Well, first I'm gonna say a fact that nobody cares about. Unfortunately I never watched the first half of Kai (the first 98 eps), just The Final Chapters in it's release on Latin America in 2017, I live in Brazil, and for some reason Cartoon Network avoided to reprise any of the first 98 episodes an...

Re: Akihito Tokunaga Plagarized (Stole?)

I don't think that is plagiarism, this happened sometimes with Z and OG DB too before, like with Kame Sennin's exercise songs as Valerius Dover said, I believe it is a production music, as some guys above said.

Re: How Would You Handle the Music of Modern Dragon Ball?

Hmmmmm this is a hard one for me, I'm satisfied with Sumitomo's work in the series after his ToP score, but let's see... I've heard just a bit of Yamamoto's compisitions in Kai, but I think his work fits modern DB, but we all know his problems with the plagiarism. Well, what I can say, I would reall...

Re: Why did Toei hire Yamamoto for Kai in the first place?

I never took a time to listen to Yamamoto's soundtracks, I think I don't have interest too due to the plagiarism, I just heard some little pieces as his copy of "Hunting High and Low" from Stratovarius (which he hammed as "Challengers", from Budokai 1) Well, if I was in the Toei's staff, I would sug...

Re: How did the DBZ movies get better BGM's than the show itself?

Cap Sora said it all
Also, this of "Movies Ost >>>> Anime Ost" also happens with Akihito Tokunaga and Norihito Sumitomo
Compare Tokunaga's "Path to Power" ost to his "GT anime" ost, and Sumitomo's "DBS Broly" ost to his "DBS anime" ost.

And the dead dino friend placement was also fitting, imo. The first couple bars are ponderous like Gohan’s grief, but really it was just an animal he chilled with for a day, and he’s just a four year old who can’t really comprehend grief yet, so he weeps briefly and moves on with his adventure, lik...

Re: Original BGM with the broadcast audio

I wish that the characters had more established personalized theme songs. Like the same beat sped up/slowed down/using different instruments where appropriate. I've just always been into personalized theme songs. This actually happened with a huge frequence in the movies, Master Kikuchi created a b...

Re: Any DB character themes that are as prominent as Piccolo’s from the original?

You are right, "Saiyan Blood" despite being sung by Vegeta's voice actor and its lyrics being about Vegeta, it isn't a Vegeta's theme. Despite "Solid State Scouter" being played in two moments where Bardock is being badass and it going down as being acknowledged or at least related to Bardock chara...

Hey. I know that this thread has some age on it, but a specific scene jumps to mind where I really disliked the Japanese score. The scene is when old Kaioshin told Gohan to power up to attain his new power. This was in Dragon Ball Z, episode 262, roughly 16:20 into it (counting the intro). Gohan st...

Re: What would Norihito Sumitomo’s weakest tracks be?

the recent promo anime Super DB Heroes have better music than the major series... I Think with "major series" you meant not to count the majority of TOP score, if that's the case, I agree with you. I don't even like the Broly soundtrack... the music is such a mess with no major themes to catch and ...
