In their interview, Tsurubo asked Sawano about some tips, as well as his favorite soundtracks from recent movies and shows.

The Attack on Titan composer said that Arcane’s soundtrack is cool and that the show’s story is interesting. Overall, he said that it is overall quite a cool show.

Arcane’s soundtrack is an eclectic mix of genres, featuring popular artists with tracks that have a lot of digital elements. This appealed to Sawano’s tastes.

Aside from Arcane, Sawano also mentioned that Christopher Nolan’s Tenet had a good soundtrack as well. While he is a Hans Zimmer fan, Sawano said that the composer Ludwig Goransson did well to craft the film’s soundtrack.
