It’s no secret that a lot of us here on the TTVMB are huge nerds, and by extension, weeaboos as well.
Being one myself, I thought I’d take the privilege of asking all of you which shows have your favourite soundtracks? In terms of how they tie in to their respective shows, and their standalone musical merit, which OST’s do you find the most appealing?
To start us off, my top five are:
Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso
Neon Genesis Evangelion
Honourable Mentions: Kill la Kill, Cowboy Bebop (Blues), Baccano, Durarara
And hey, it ain’t no chinese cartoon, but Steven Universe has got a pretty rad OST too.
I really like (2011 one) HunterXHunter’s soundtrack. Sure it might reuse the intro sometimes, but instrumental versions with different instruments. I personally love the songs, intro and outros included. Also this is probably the anime I’m watching each episode and really enjoy watching it.
Honestly though, I’ve started a lot of animes but not finished many. Tokyo Ghoul had a good soundtrack, despite being a meh show.
Code Geass had a good soundtrack but not all of the musical cues were on the OST; coughturningthetidecough.
Aldnoah.Zero stands out with a great OST. That’s all I can think of right now.
EDIT: Oh yeah, forgot one. Overrated as the show is (fight me) Attack on Titan has some undeniably epic music too.
