Dragon Quest composer Koichi Sugiyama isn't happy just being a war crime denier, is anti-LGBT too!

So you might have seen this thread on Off Topic: https://www.resetera.com/threads/ja...uctive-because-they-dont-have-children.57209/

So this Japanese politician is being an asshate on a conservative propaganda talk that's making waves now. But what you might not have known is...


This is the show in question: http://www.ch-sakura.jp/programs/program-info.html?id=1659

If there's anyone that deserves to be let go from a company for being a long-time piece of shit outside of it, it's probably this guy

Yeah he's a piece of shit.

Now I really hope Dragon Quest XI on PC gets the Orchestrated music via mods and he hears about it, I want him to get really pissed about it.

He's 87, hopefully nature does its magic and we don't have to hear about him ever again.

We don't need bigots.

So people will be happy when we don't get his orchestrated soundtrack in the localization, right?

I knew he was an ass about his music rights, but man, what a piece of shit.

I disagree with his viewpoints vehemently too, but is there really a need to say "I hope he dies" and "Can't wait until he dies, nearly there" like the first few posts here have..?

That don't surprise me in any way. If he thinks like that about the war, it was obvious that he would think the same about those questions. For all the talent that Sugiyama has, he's equally a piece of shit.

Unfortunately he's going to be with Dragon Quest for much more time.

Considering that some people won't buy because it's MIDI, I don't think so.

DQ needs a new composer bad. There are plenty of great composers out there that can take his place.

Such terrible shit in that video too. Disgusting.

I might have been too rough, but when I hear about him laughing about LGBT people killing themselves, let's say I don't feel too bad about saying that, plus he really is old.

Plus the other shit like denying war crimes, just... no.

Sugiyama owns the copyright of Dragon Quest music. There's a reason that his name is there along Square Enix, Armor Project (Yuji Horii) and Bird Studio (Akira Toriyama). He's part of the project and only will go out on his own, not on SE demand.

When he is actively using his wealth and success to influence and pay for propaganda that downplays war crimes and is happy to use his status to encourage anti-LGBT views in a country that already struggles to understand this issue, yes? There is absolutely a need to stand up and say "I hope this guy does not live to 90 because he has already been given too much time in this world to do shitty things and the sooner he is deceased, the better it is for society." That is literally it. No one is asking for acts of violence or anything, just hoping that nature does us a solid and doesn't delay what will eventually happen anyway.

If you are from Asia and your family suffered from war crime committed by Japanese army, you'd take the whole denial of war crime thing very personal. I know I do.

It'd be pretty cool if this dude gets dropped [from DQ]. Time to move the fuck on and hire one of the other massively talented composers in the industry.

He's also a council member for JASRAC, the biggest copyright administration in Japan.

He's a really huge name and in powerful positions which genuinely sucks.

Sadly he's not going to get dropped. Legacy means a lot in Japan. Someone better definitely deserves to take over and wash this bad taste I get every time I play DQ though.

Yeah the power he has in the industry is really ughhhh.

User Warned: Advocating piracy
Cant wait to download the DQXI orchestrated soundtrack and mod it on my game without this pos seeing a single cent out of it.
I dont care if it's piracy, this pos isnt seeing a single dollar from me.
