what anime would u say is the most musically appealing, aside from flcl of course
Macross does have good music, but the limited soundtrack means that you better like what you hear or else you'll be getting real annoyed real quick. Shao Pailan from the first one turned to shit for me once she got to the evil chaser line.
Hellsing was an OK show at best, but it's soundtrack was awesome
One of the most underrated animes, a middle aged japanese office man was secretly a heavy metal star.
By the one and only John Sykes, It has music by Michael Schenker too.
>Your will never save the universe, with your awesome heavy metal band.
I was under the impression that /mu/ only liked the type of music that wouldn't fit as a soundtrack for something. Like being a soundtrack necessitates a lack of substance because otherwise it would overpower the media it's suppose to complement.
>someone on /a/ is so assblasted about Bebop that they wasted their time making this
I wonder who is behind this post.
I mean it's not really shocking, since Watanabe worked on the soundtrack, but the music in this show really set the mood especially well.
ctrl+f......no Samurai Champloo...Nujabes is rolling over in his grave you weebs.
Probably not the most appealing but Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt had a nice mix of EDM with TeddyLoid doing most of the music. EP had a solid 80s feel, and See Through still gets me pumped up when I'm doing my laps on the track.
All in all most anime have one decent track, somes have one really good track, even fewer have multiple good ones
Nujabes' work with Fat Jon on Champloo is good but it REALLY isn't where you want to stop. There's a lot better stuff out there, go listen through his discography, I promise you'll like it.
I don't usually care about OST. There are a few that made at least some impression on me though. The only two I can think of right now are .hack//sign and Noir. I think they stand out for me because I fucking hated both series a lot and thought OST were the only redeeming qualities
/mu/ really isn't a particular subset of tastes, it's not even just metalfags vs p4k/tnd gaylords
Also the fact that Ennio Morricone exists kind of completely refutes that second point, loads of the movies he's worked on totally hang on his music
Darker than Black. Three OSTs full of Jazz and Untz.
S2 ost > S1 ost > OVA ost
Ironically Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. Between the stand names, and the anime it take a certain kind of je ne sais quoi to pull of what it does, nevermind the quality of (most) of the OPs and EPs.
And dont even get me started on what its influenced.....
Impossible to list just one, here's a few:
Kaiji, Death Note and really anything by Hideki taniuchi.
Sora no Woto.
Anything by Yuki Kajiura or Kenji Kawai.
Champloo and Bebop.
I'm probably forget many.
Matter of perspective I suppose but yea that defines it better. /mu/ has that hatred there but it comes out as snarky derisiveness similar to /v/. /a/ is just smug without malice most of the time, more for bantz and shitposting
First few I can think of
While Hisaishi is geat and all I've dropped some non-orchestral stuff in as well cause I feel like they're far less mentioned
>No Tetsuwan Birdy: Decode
The rest of the ost is great too.
Initial d, praticularly first stage. Love the middle era eurobeat, the ost has that funky 90's synth, and the move and galla op/ed's where really good. Fourth stage onwards only really has good eurobeat, but even that starts to slip in fifth and final stages.
Putting aside what you think of the show and its fans, Kotaro Nakagawa makes a pretty swell soundtrack.
Like his s-CRY-ed and GunXSword soundtracks were sweet too.
i second this
>NHK ni Yokosou
>Panty & Stocking
a good sampler of different music styles from decent anime.
Kids on the slope is another great one that is heavy on music. I'm surprised no one has mentioned it yet.
