An overview of the 7th Time Loop soundtrack

The 7th Time Loop soundtrack is a collaboration between composers Satoshi Hono and Ryunosuke Kasai. Both composers have worked on music for anime series previously. Satoshi Hono has contributed to Urara Meirochou and Parallel World Pharmacy. Ryunosuke Kasai is credited with working on anime like Haikyu!! TO THE TOP, but mostly as an arranger. This soundtrack wouldn’t be the first time Hono and Kasai would work together. Prior to this soundtrack, the two composers have collaborated on the music to Miss Shachiku and the Little Baby Ghost and Fluffy Paradise.

And after listening to this soundtrack, they’re definitely a composer pair to keep tabs on. Anyone who’s watched the 7th Time Loop anime probably won’t be able to recall any of the background music. But when you listen to the music on its own, you’ll find it to be shockingly enjoyable.

Much of the music in 7th Time Loop is what you’d expect from a fantasy-ish anime focused around a royal court. That is, expect plenty of orchestral pieces that carry an air of regality to them along with a waltz or two and pieces that represent the characters’ emotional state. I liked how some of the tracks like “Empire” drew me in with their energy and reminded me of how fun this anime was to watch. Many of the character themes are also superb in capturing their respective characters. For example, “Tully’s Theme” has the wily tone that befits a merchant. “Arnold’s Theme” is also a standout for how well it captures the aura of mystery surrounding him as well as the underlying darkness, but also his sincere tenderness.

I don’t think I’ll ever describe my listening experience of 7th Time Loop’s soundtrack as being dazzling or deeply moving. But it’s a listening experience that I can say I enjoyed. And that’s not something I can honestly say about a lot of anime soundtracks. So while its melodies aren’t entirely memorable, the efforts by both Hono and Kasai are competent overall.
