Re: Composer Shunsuke Kikuchi has passed away

I knew it was going to happen sooner likelier than later, given his age, but it still caught me off guard. :(

Re: What's that BGM in the Japanese version? Read the OP!

I seem to remember a regular reader mentioning to me that they were sure that particular instance of the cue was an alternate. That prompted me to scrutinize it more closely, and I suppose at the time I must have heard something that seemed different, or it might have just been the power of suggesti...

Re: The peculiar case of G12 (Mai's News of the Valley)

The odd thing is, for that particular track ("Wild Boy", disc 2 track 13), the booklet only lists F37, A9, G12 and I19. It gets even weirder: G12 is described as being played a lot when the good guys have an accidental encounter with an enemy. "Accident" is the word they use ( akushidento , アクシデント),...

Re: What's that BGM in the Japanese version? Read the OP!

it's kind of strange that Ghastel has a theme at all, considering it only shows up in two BGM. Seems to suggest he might have originally been intended to play a somewhat larger role, else why give him a theme? Well, it's only five notes :) I'm sure giving him a leitmotif just had to do with introdu...

Re: What's that BGM in the Japanese version? Read the OP!

Ah, that makes sense; I don't think you used that term in previous instances. The documentation on my site for the three DB movies is different in style from the TV episodes; this is because I redid my cue sheets for the movies about five or six years ago, and I wanted improvement and as much info ...

Re: What's that BGM in the Japanese version? Read the OP!

Source music is the industry term for music in a film that the characters can hear (diegetic music). This can *sometimes* take the form of stock, but I've always been under the impression the aerobics cue from Sleeping Princess is indeed Kikuchi.

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

They could be. You have to remember, I've always considered my documentations guesswork that could change the moment we got new official information, certainly nowhere near the gospel truth until such info might surface. Sometimes my guesswork lost its logic and went a little off the rails while doc...

Re: What's that BGM in the Japanese version? Read the OP!

I think this is what I get for putting the documentation out there while it was still imperfect (also, at the time, I didn't have the greatest knowledge of some of the ins and outs of BGM). I've actually known about or suspected a lot of these errors for many years now. Some of them I even knew from...

Re: Veteran members, share your stories?

I think my first experience with the site had to do with all the video clips Mike had up on one of the pages (this would have been about 2000-2001). It wasn't my very first exposure to the Japanese version, but it was pretty close. These clips were mostly from fansubs - the ones I specifically recal...

Okay, so the two links to the cue are the same track. I see that the Roshi is somber scene is recorded now, great. I have another BGM identification. It's Lunch Steals The Princess.

I have question regarding a particular BGM. Is M644 the alternate to M631? Or are they the same track? M644 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9wZZELD2Ak M631 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ismqv3rePuo M644 plays on Dragon Ball episode 140 in the scene "Roshi is somber". It sounds like the same exac...

Re: Bruce Faulconer or Shunsuke Kikuchi ?

For the life of me I will never understand this idea that "old" automatically equals "bad". If you ask me, we're currently in the dark ages of film/TV scoring. The old stuff is the good stuff. If you think the music in certain scenes in the Japanese TV series is unfitting, it's not Kikuchi's fault, ...

Unreleased cue from DragonBall, very rare. The only other time it's heard in the series is in DB episode 42, in a scene involving Ninja Murasaki and a snowmobile. My unofficial name for it is "Snowmobilin'"... try this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aldkPvo-S2s

We don't know its official name. My personal name for it is "Living Under A Tyrant", and you can hear it isolated here (though there's a jump cut in the middle).
