I loved Yoko Kanno until I learned of how much of a blatant plagiarist she was.
For now I'll just say: Taku Iwasaki.
That is all.

I like hisaishi better but she did my favorite ost of all time, Escaflowne.

Michiru Oshima for sure. You can recognise his work instantly after watching any anime which has a soundtrack composed by him. It's just so goddamn enchanting.

"I believe there is a big difference between Japanese anime music and Hollywood film music. Hollywood needs its music to be background music which assists in the climax, but anime music is required to become a part of the film – and add to the emotions of the scene and the characters. Whether it’s climactic or not is simply a byproduct and not the goal."

the great thing about her music is, that is works both as utility music in Anime and as music on its own.

what i dont`t like is how often she uses made-up-languages instead of of real lyrics

I assume thats a typo and you meant Kenji Kawai?

What I like in soundtracks is when they're unique enough to let you remember them even after you've finished watching the series/movie. There has to be a sort of interplay between the music and what your eyes see on the screen but without the soundtrack being too overbearing.

So when I listen to soundtracks by themselves afterwards, I can recall the emotions of the scene where the specific track is played while enjoying the music itself. It's rare to have anime with god-tier soundtrack and a plot that you actually give a fuck about though. Almost only movies are able to pull it off, probably due to budget and pacing (24min episode) issues?

Pretty much she beat her head on piano keys and recorded herself screaming into a cheap microphone. Japan calls this music.
