Who would you say are your all time favorite composers for anime?

Joe Hisaishi is my number 1, but I have a lot more favorites.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9mGQU7rGGM

My top ten:
1. Joe Hisaishi
2. Ryuuichi Sakamoto
3. Yoko Kanno
4. Susumu Hirasawa
5. Shiro Sagisu
6. Naoki Sato
7. Yuki Kajiura
8. Taku Iwasaki
9. Kenji Kawai
10. Toshio Masuda

What are yours?

Also before anyone asks, I like Hiroyuki Sawano, but I really think he peaked after Gundam Unicorn. His music sounds nice but doesn't have much variety to it.

Hard to say. I'm on a big Hirasawa binge right now after watching Millennium Actress last night though.

Yuki Kaijura. I like her OSTs like Thanatos
I imagine my favorite circle is Wave or Floating cloud
>>
Kanna for sure. Her work in escaflowne was flawless. Unfortunately a lot of shit just got repetitious with the who steam punk sound. Favorite song by her is the escaflowne opening song.
>>
Shiro Sagisu
Susumu Hirasawa
Hiroyuki Sawano
>>
Michiru oshima and katsuhisa hattori.

The only work that he was the lead composer for was Gungrave. I wouldn't call that a very impressive track record.

Kara no Kyoukai is probably Yuki Kajiura's finest work...nothing can top that, aside from Madoka. I liked the soundtrack to Rebellion. Have the entire KNK soundtrack and tell me what you think.

I agree. I listen to it on a daily basis, it's amazing.

Ma nigga. Madoka and Fate/Zero are strong runners up, but Kajiura's work on Kara no Kyoukai was fucking incredible.

I really enjoy some of the soundtracks he makes, albeit not every one.

God BD ost is so good.
shame his work on shokugeki was kinda weak.

I have no clue man.

I guess I like Taku Iwasaki, Yoko Kanno and Hiroyuki Sawano. Joe Hisashi is my nigger too.

Other than that, I really don't know.

Joe Hisaishi is my absolute favorite too. I also really enjoy Hideki Taniuchi's work on Kaiji/Akagi. Shame he'll never work in the industry again.

Sawano is a god.
>>
>>137495272
Monaca has had some good ones lately, especially Concrete Revolutio
>>
>>137492944

Just use your eyes and sense of pattern recognition if you have any, it's not to hard to figure out from casual observation.
>>
>>137495944

Michiru Oshima is stupid underrated as is pretty much everyone you listed. Can't wait for Akagami no Shirayukihime OST finally in March.
>>
>>137497668
His guitar work is a godsend, lost count on how many nights that sora no woto ost helped me to sleep like a baby.
>>
>>137496114

He's just so one note and played out and his vocal tracks are fucking awful mainly. He's tolerable if not pretty decent when he's not pushing the vocals which is unfortunately all the time lately.
>>
>>137497722

Michiru Oshima is a her, hence the name Michiru and she's a composer not a guitar player though I guess you can give her credit for writing the sheet music for that section. Still IMO the fact that people can't even tell the proper gender of someone in these discussions...like what are we even doing here lets be honest folks.
>>
>>137497816
they look and sound the same brother man
i'll give you the rest of the post, so gomen gomen etc
>>
>>137495944

I'm finding Iwasaki's latest stuff pretty mediocre and forgettable to be honest. Really only his work for Noragami and Jojo has stood out much lately though for the latter I think it's cause he was clearly trying to channel 80's inspiration cause you know Jojo and all.
>>
>>137497976
he's getting too into dubstep imo, his mahouka work had 6 good tracks
>>
>>137497727
His vocal tracks usually represent ~10% of the OST he composes but the directors and the sound directors love to use them all the time.
>>
>>137496114
Sawano isn't bad. Just overrated.
>>
>>137496114
All of Sawano's shit sounds the same. Once you've heard one album, you've heard em all.

always good to see shiro getting some love
