Does anyone know if his work on Aoi Bungaku is published in some form or another?

It's over. We're never going to see a new soundtrack from him again. This sucks.

That really DOES suck. Arrested for 1.5 grams... that's disgraceful. Japan is appallingly draconian about drug possession. In the UK you wouldn't even get a criminal record, and we're bad enough about it.

Shit. My favourite anime composer busted? Well, from what I know of Japan, bye-bye professional career, Taniuchi.

Damn!

So does anyone know if he went to jail for good or what he is up to?

In jail as far as I know. Heard he will be in for a minimum of 5 years. Don't have a source for this claim though.

A 5 year sentence in prison sounds pretty harsh for cannabis possession. Unless there are other crimes (cultivation or such), one can be given a suspended term and avoid jail. I don't have any source of the actual details and it's just a generalization though.

Well he had been giving the other person cannabis for years according to the original report so, if it's true, they may have got him for more than just possession.

You'd figure people of his talent would be allowed weed!

Just kidding.

But still, saddening to hear that. Probably one of my favourite composers.

2021 Update:
If this comment is to be believed:

Quote:
Hideki is very talented! In my opinion....a musical genius! I accidentally met him in Tokyo in 2019. He is very nice, very polite and an extremely intelligent person. I don't think he writes music for the brain intentionally. I think it's just a natural thing for him because he is a thinker and very intelligent. I also showed him this video ( because he speaks English)....he was flattered.

then Hideki seems to be out of prison
