Best composer I've ever heard in anime, and now he's blacklisted for some absolutely trivial shit.
Honestly, some musicians in europe/usa have been filmed taking cocaine during their sets and nothing has happened. Why do Japan gotta be tripping over some fucking weed.
I absolutely love this guy and I wish he would start releasing some good soundtracks again. Big up.

Someone needs to hire him again, there is no law stopping them. Hideki Taniuchi was one of the all-time best anime composers.

I'm pretty sure he's out of jail currently, but is still blacklisted from working in the music or anime industry.

Free Taniuchi.

Any news about him? I've been looking for something for the last 5 or 6 years on the internet and each single time I fail to find something... Hope he's not in jail anymore at least, he deserves better.
