Hideyuki Fukasawa is a Japanese composer. He has often worked with Capcom but is also involved in his freelance composing work. He had a minor role in Onimusha 2 as an assistant sound engineer and programmer to Taro Iwashiro, the acclaimed music composer of that particular game but it was his work on Chaos Legion, a Capcom Gothic action-adventure third-person fighting game in a similar fashion with the Devil May Cry series released in 2002, that gave him a cult-like status among video gaming fans. In 2008 he composed and arranged the music for Street Fighter IV, Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds, and the updated versions of both said games, with some tracks arranged from previous games.

In 2012 he worked as the lead composer for TYPE-MOON's latest visual novel, Mahoutsukai no Yoru.

his music from Mahoutsukai No Yoru is really great

His work on Aku no Hana was really amazing.

I'm surprised to see he also did the OST for F/S UBW. I liked the OST (probably the thing I liked most about UBW...) but I would've never guess it's the same person.

I find that most of his work loses its luster after a while to be honest. Which is why I consider his score for Unlimited Blade Works to be better than Mayoho’s. Mahoyo however, hit MUCH harder the first time (when compared to UBW). No question about it, it grabs you and pulls you along. My favorites on that soundtrack are Aoko Aozaki, FLAT SNARK, Mania for the Fairyland (heavily underrated), and First Star (Overrated).

The thing about the Unlimited Blade Works OST is that a lot of people don’t remember that there are a lot of things that they would recognize immediately if they heard it. And very few of them are in the actual Official soundtrack. I’m just going to post part of my comparison comment between Fukusawa and Kaijura from Beast’s Lair here because it sums up most of what I can say about the UBW soundtrack. Bear in mind that it’s just my opinion.

The UBW OST (particularly a lot of unreleased tracks) (http://forums.nrvnqsr.com/showthread.php/7297-Fate-stay-night-Unlimited-Blade-Works-Unreleased-Music-Project) had a lot of real gems in it, including giving Shirou and Archer distinctive, separate themes, and giving Rin, Taiga, Berserker, Caster, Shinji, even the freaking track team, and Luvia who appears for less than three minutes, their own leitmotifs, all of which I found fit the characters really well. Now, I’m not going to deny that he did this for Mahoyo as well, but not quite as much, and while there are a lot of tracks that I come back to on the unreleased UBW soundtrack, there are only about those four that I mentioned above.

Find a quick look over here on YouTube:
(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocdnFftLqus&list=PLdWuc_xyC-UWtGg8ggysCDBkTg5NencWZ&index=1),
but I don't think I want to post an ffshrine forum link where you can get all the tracks separately in a public setting since the site's basically all illegal downloads.

As for things in the released tracks, I really like most of them, but my personal favorite original piece is probably Storm.

The Madder Red Town cover in the Sunny Day ending is also a lot less annoying than the one in the game (not the one in the credits, I'm pretty sure that was directly transplanted from the original VN, I mean the one in the last scene itself).

That in particular makes me extremely confident that he’s going to make a masterpiece of the Camelot OVA soundtracks, because to anyone who’s played Fate/Grand Order knows that there are VERY few good pieces of music in that game. If this guy can do to In the Mountains what he did with Madder Red Town, I will be thrilled. Or make the Lion King’s (Lancer ________’s) themes really shine instead of just being better than the rest of the soundtrack.

This is probably one of the most important themes in the series, so I’ll spend a bit of time on this one: In my opinion, Fukasawa's Excalibur is a lot better than Kaijura's. Its tone is medieval, it's exciting, and it doesn't add unnecessary vocals that nearly overshadow the original track. I would be fine if Kaijura did this for the Black Excalibur because the vocals really took away from the track overall. Not enough attention was payed to the instruments, there were just a few woodwinds and strings, and Kalafina's dissonant chanting. It sounded like any other fight track on the F/Z OST. Meanwhile, in Unlimited Blade Works, we've waited for this moment for twenty-three episodes iirc, and even though it's a very short rendition, it is perfect for the scene, and still sounds beautiful on its own. The opening has the best rendition of that section of Sword of Promised Victory, and really does exemplify how grateful she is to have met Shirou and Rin. I've always thought that Sword of Promised Victory sounded too much like the theme of a rampaging tyrant, and that's not what Saber is anymore, which makes it kind of disappointing that it's the only theme she really gets in the entire series, just because it's become so iconic. But keeping it short actually mitigated that a lot. It was exciting, but kept brief enough to be less of a rampage, and more of a bright spark.

I actually liked Vortex of Fate too, despite knowing that it sort of was used to shunt out Church on the Hill, in a sense, as Kotomine's theme, but at the same time, Spiral of Fate was used very often when Kotomine was on-screen in the VN anyway, and Vortex added the eerie Fuyuki Fire mix of Shirou's new leitmotif to it as well.

His musical score for the legendary Bakumatsu Kikansetsu Irohanihoheto is beautiful, lush, memorable. One of my all time favorites.

His work on Mahoyo is simply amazing.


shizaman | Aug 29, 2016 7:18 PM
His work on Aku no Hana is probably the best soundtrack I've ever listened to at an anime.


potbrick | Aug 27, 2016 4:08 PM
His work on Mahoyo blows his UBW and the F/Z soundtrack out of the water imo. Check it out:
