It was in 2011, Toei had replaced all his BGM's in any work he ever did for Dragon Ball video games and series (Kai) because he copied so many of his tracks from existing songs and soundtracks by many other people. He'd been doing that since the original Z series with "Battle Point Unlimited", and the effect it had on the BGM of further media in the series can't be understated.

He basically did this for over 20 years and it wasn't until Kai and RB2 that he got caught. Then Toei went into full damage control mode and blotted out his name, replacing his tracks with the Shunsuke Kikuchi score and previous DB game entries like BT2.

Don't think any other franchise has ever had to retract BGM's like this before, why can't Toei be an upright and competent studio? And this even happened to their biggest name brand anime and related merchandise. Can anyone think of more examples of this elsewhere or to a similar extent?

@buckwheat: Hey, I'm not here to launch some crusade against it or w/e, I'm just wondering who else used to be in it and agrees. Besides, it's already pretty much dying either way.

The most? Nah but I will agree that these past few years, their track record has been, well not great anyway. Which is a shame really because some of their past anime were very good and even iconic.

I actually said "one of" though.

As in, they have so many failures in their history, from discarding the broadcast audio of the original DBZ show, to hiring a serial plagiarist for the OST composition of any part of that franchise, to the travesty that is the Gaiking LODM TV version, and likely so much more.

Why are they plagued by negligent management despite their massive status as an anime studio, as well as the ones who had the most adapted shows before dubs came?

It makes me wonder in what ways they may have messed up with the original Saint Seiya and FotNS manga adaptations, as well as many others.

Are there any more examples I missed?

@thefantomconvoy: Nothing wrong with being serious about as long as it doesn't lead to insults, then it becomes petty. I'm guilty of that sometimes.

Eh, people forget that it's of no true meaning in the end.

And I find it amusing when I run into people who take it very seriously, specially if they are death wrong.

'tis my sacred duty to show them how wrong they are.

The only complaint I could have is that all the cool fights, like Batman vs Captain America, have been done before.

Yes they have, but I wasn't here to debate! What if my contribution could have changed the outcome?!?

Well just remember that so long as their attitude is alright and they aren't trying to force their beliefs on others, then it really doesn't matter which way they think any of these hypothetical confrontations could go. Still ultimately hollow.

As I said before, Vs. only favors the popular series.

@thefantomconvoy: You're putting way too much thought into something people find fun.

Wouldn't be the case were it not for how seriously some can take it.
