Yuzuru Jinma is one of the most notable Japanese sound creators in the anime and game music industry in Japan today. As a composer, he orchestrates Japanese traditional musical instruments to create epic fantasy music. We interviewed him about his work and about anime, game, and film production in Japan!

Most of the works related to anime, game, and film in Japan are centralized in Tokyo. In other words, if you really want to work in the industry, you have to be in Tokyo. Yuzuru Jinma was born and raised in a small city called Kitami in Hokkaido, far away from the capital. He had been working in Hokkaido, waiting for an opportunity to introduce his music to the industry for a long time. Recently he set his mind on success, left for Tokyo to realize his dream, and he managed to became a professional composer. You can check his website (in Japanese) to find out more about his past.
