    Default Music in Anime

    Here, we can discuss music tracks in anime. Which ones are your favorites? Which ones did you hate? Which anime had the most tracks that you liked?

    Well, I personally am in love with the entire Cyborg 009 (2001) OST. I also seem to be listening to Brilliant Road (Opening from Stellvia) a lot. And of course the Song of Sorrow from Grave of the Fireflies.

    What about you guys?

    Even though I don't watch it, Attack on Titan has some amazing openings.

    The soundtracks I personally enjoy are from CLANNAD and Vision of Escaflowne, though a close-second for Key works is AIR--a little ironic since I didn't like the anime (except the movie), but I love the soundtrack. I'm just that much of a sucker for violin and piano.

    I actually have the soundtrack that came with Escaflowne: The Movie Ultimate Edition DVD, and I really love it. Took me about a decade before I finally saw the television series, and because just about the entire soundtrack is on YouTube, I fell even more in love with it, and Yoko Kanno has since then become one of my favorite composers. I always have this belief that if she and Jun Maeda collaborated a soundtrack together, we'd all get dehydrated, if our heads don't explode from the awesomeness first.

    I also have the My Neighbor Totoro soundtrack, and it's a joy to listen to. A lot of Studio Ghibli music is really beautiful, but Joe Hisaishi gives more memorable pieces, and it adds magic to the soundtrack no matter how upbeat or depressing it is.

    Yes, Escaflowne is great.

    Instead of mentioning the usual, I'll say that Black Rock Shooter's OVA and series has some enjoyable music. I particularly like the sad tracks that came out of it.

    Kill la Kill has a good soundtrack. And then there is Blumenkranz

    One Piece and Hunter x Hunter(2011) are also good. And FMA:B

    the pokemon anime soundtracks are pretty good. i've enjoyed listening to the Unova and Kalos region songs in the games and trying to connect which moments are tied to which songs. A classic like Sailor Moon has always been a favorite of mine, just the different feel and sounds really makes my day

    Yuki Kaijura is absolutely magical.
    Lost my pieces from Toradora and Theme of SSS from Angel Beats are also pretty nice.

    Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood has a really good soundtrack. As does Guilty Crown (Soundtrack+animation is what made it stand out imo) and Blue Exorcist. I know this is a movie but Spirited Away has a great score too.

    Shingeki no Kyojin, most definitely. The second opening, Jiyuu no Tsubsa (The Wings of Freedom) and the first ending, Utsukushiki Zankoku na Sekai (A Cruel and Beautiful World) are two of my favorites.
    worst signature, ever.

    .hack//SIGN's OST definitely, it basically defined its world through its music. More so than the drawings did.
    Gundam SEED has some of the most epic soundtracks I've ever heard in an anime.
    I love most of the One Piece opening themes. Makes you happy just listening to them.
    Pokémon anime OST is great too. Hearing the game's tunes in full glory is awesome.

    I love the SAO openings and the one for Air. I didn't really like the second opening for Death Note at all. :/ I get that it's heavy metal and all but it was kinda badly done imo and messy

    I absolutely adore the Guilty Crown soundtrack. While the show itself was subpar as far as plot and characters go you have to admit that it's production values were off the chart.

    There's also the Little Busters! Soundtrack which has the perfect blend of lighthearted tracks and more emotional pieces. Having vocal versions of the more memorable pieces of the OST certainly helps.

    And then just about everything done by Yuki Kajiura. Fate/Zero was mentioned previously, but her works in other shows like Madoka Magica and Sword Art Online also deserve praise.

    The only ones that have really been on my mind recently are the School Food Punishment songs (imagine the word "innovation" as a musical entity), and the Little Busters OST. Can't really think of much else. I suppose Sidonia no Kishi's OP has also been on and off.

    Edit: Hyouri Itai and Wareta Ringo have also been around.

    I love listening to anime music; it's great.

    Just to name a few.... Rurouni Kenshin, FMAB, Kill la Kill, and Gurren Lagann all have amazing soundtracks.

    I loved all the openings and endings to Code Geass, as well as the music in the actual anime scenes. Adding to that, the Ghibli soundtracks/scores are great and I love the music from Angel Beats! too.
