Damn.... His music in Dragon Ball/Dragon Ball Z can at the start be an acquired taste if you were raised on the Saban/Funimation dub's music but once you experience the score, it grows on you and you start to see the genius of it. It's true to the series inspiration of wuxia and kung fu films and there is no other anime soundtrack like it. Rest in Peace, Kikuchi-san.

Rest In Peace, to the Finest Composer of the last 50 years! Grendizer, Getter, Sister Street Fighter, and too many more to list.

For some of us otherwise it was a pretty easy and enjoyable listen throughout.

That aside shame about his passing.

His music for Dragon Ball was the soundtrack was my childhood. Thank you so much for the gift, Kikuchi.

These pieces are absolute classics:

Rest in peace and thank you for everything, Shunsuke Kikuchi.

I've spent my whole childhood and teenage years listening to his wonderfull musics. More than I've ever listened to any other kind of music or songs.
Grendizer, then Captain Harlock: Arcadia of my youth, then Dragon Ball, then DBZ.

He's made so many culturally iconic works, this really is a heavy loss. May he rest peacefully.

It seems that he was yet another victim of the COVID-19. Rest in peace, man!

What a giant. If he had worked on nothing but Dragon Ball, he'd still have left a mark on millions of people all over the world. May he rest in peace.

RIP, you were one of the best composers of all time, and your wonderful contributions to music for both anime and tokusatsu will never be forgotten and may they never fade from peoples' memories. Crying or Very sad
