What makes your average animu composer better than someone like Hans Zimmer?

Nothing does because they're not. Don't be a fucking retard.

Yeah same.

Feels like animu composers draw on more styles AND instruments in comparison to Hollywood which give their music a lot more variation and character whereas Hollywood especially feels very one-note a lot of the time (only ever drawing on orchestral+le epic latin choirs, or something like sad violin/piano).

Angel Hall

I think what you mean to say is that Hollywood music is melody memery.
In short it's catchy trash.

Colton Roberts

In short it's catchy trash.
But that's exactly what I adore about my favourite anime OSTs.

Liam James

Guess so. At least within animu, composers tend to really own their style like OP's pic. Sawano's stuff may be bombastic and probably as hollywood-esque as anime music will get, it never blends in and still feels unique to Hollywood stuff.

Nicholas Moore

no problem with that, there's a reason pop music is popular

They are not and with this i'm not saying they are bad but they are not as good as Hollywood ones.

Kayden Butler

There isn't a single anime composer that even comes close to the level of guys like James Horner, Maurice Jarre and Ennio Morricone, besides Joe Hisaishi.

Henry Martin

More variety than Hollywood.

That's both a good, and a bad thing.

Julian Williams

because Hollywood musics are fucking trash
even anime shit is better than that garbage

Levi Bennett

How is having more variety bad?

Adrian Nelson

Not him but I'd assume he means variety in both style and skill level.

Think of it as a "trick of all trades, master of none" thing. Yes, there are composers which deliver each time, but there are a lot of half-assed soundtracks out there as well.

Hollywood is mainly consistent in its' thing, but the lack of variety plays against it. Orchestra, piano and guitars get old after a while. The composition doesn't differ much between movies.

Parker Torres

includes james Horner, the most well-known plagiarist in all of Hollywood
Doesn't even mention John FUCKING Williams
Chooses Hisaishi, a self-admitted minimalist musician, of all the fucking orchestral music composers in anime

Fucking kill yourself shit eater.

tldw; blame Zimmer and his computers

Lincoln Collins

The real irony is that Zimmer makes far more memorable music than 90% of modern Hollywood, it's the reason people will always remember his Batman and Inception scores over whatever the fuck is in those Marvel or Michael Bay movies.

What an interesting yet depressing video. Ending was great.

Samuel Ward

But he did music for anime as well.

Logan Hughes

as all hollywood films are the same. Same characters, same temp, same pace, same events, almost the same script. There are like 5-10 movies that they rehashing over and over.
So the problem is deeper.

You're a complete idiot

Gavin Price

all the same things can be said about mediocre games and animu as well. Capitalism is afraid of creativity and new. They don't need to produce new content or challange ideas, they need to make money. Plane and simple as it is. So in order to stay profitable the better strategy is to make something bland that people are already used to. Retards see something familiar, recognizable - retards pay.
To be creative is not worth the risk in the eyes of profit-making companies.

Landon Johnson

Zimmer acts more like a music director than a composer these days.

It's other composers in his studio that are doing the real work.

His studio has this huge sound library and collection of short musical phrases that the interns would put them together to make a track for Zimmer.

Here's a little fun fact: Hans Zimmer actually produced the music for Blood+.

James Bell
James Bell

Horner was a better composer anyway. All of his soundtracks despite being very different in style always incorporated his signature horn motif. His soundtracks for the Mask of Zorro and Enemy at the Gates were the work of sheer mastercraft.

William Hughes

As silly as the shows are, Death Note,TTGL, and Code Geass have top 100 GOAT soundtrack material in all seriousness

Luis Gonzalez

Do Marvel film even have a common theme song? Cause that's what I iniatially thought when he asked at the beginning.
Not that the other examples don't get praised for their music all the time anyway.

i love disney soundtracks

Dominic Miller

I love how this guy is constantly compared to Zimmer despite them barely sounding similar at all. Particularly when I watched Interstellar I was thinking how exactly these two sounded similar again.

In anyway Cred Forums really needs to learn more composers aside from the ones Sony crams down it's throats.

Chase Long
Chase Long

It's mainly 95% of comic book movies and action blockbusters seem to have the same non-descript "get hype" sound track. Watch more different kinds of movies

Austin Morris
Austin Morris

Composers like John Williams make iconic tracks people can hum 40 years after they come out

Sawano wasn't even born 40 years ago. How much of his music will you be humming 40 years from now?

Colton Bailey

His franchises hasn't been dragged out and rehashed for decades again and again

Brandon Barnes

Jason Robinson

This is kind of a unbalanced topic since Cred Forums knows nothing about anime music composer other than the ones they heard often.

Nice rebuttal, get back to me when you watch more than 5 anime.

Anime composers can fuck around more.

Kill yourself.

Do people on here tend to think Joe Hisaishi is better than Ryuichi Sakamoto?

Gabriel Martin
Gabriel Martin

Ryuichi Sakamoto. He won an Oscar for The Last Emperor and has composed for The Revenant, Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence, and Royal Space Force: The Wings of Honneamise.

Jordan Foster
Jordan Foster

Hisaishi and Sakamoto are too different to compare. Hisaishi is more melodic and upbeat while Sakamoto is more mellow and somber. Both are powerful composers though.

What about western TV show OSTs since anime isn't focused only on feature length films? Can you remember melodies from those?

Sawano just rinses his SnK style.
Piece of shit, He could have been so good.

Andrew Campbell

Agreed. He peaked after Gundam Unicorn.

Jack Ortiz
Jack Ortiz

He composes for the same sort of Aniplex action shit show original pretty much every single time now so it's more like being run into the ground s over a matter of month's and yet brain dead anime fans still suck his dick like his just the most amazing and fresh composer

Brayden Rogers

How about you just listen to what sounds good to you and leave it at that?
