Today I spent several hours in the company with composer Riichiro Manabe. My friend Yasushi and I brought him a few gifts (including a box of Japanese sweets, which he really enjoyed) and spent time discussing his career. Mr. Manabe is best known as the composer for Godzilla vs. the Smog Monster (1971) and Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973), but those two films were a drop in the bucket when one considers his entire body of work.
Good times were had by all. I hope to see Mr. Manabe again very soon.
