[Watanabe, you can see his strong integration of music into style. Also Samurai Chapamploo with hip hop. He was involved with music on Michiko to Hatchin, I thought he was involved more with it since its style reminded me a lot of Bebop.


I also meant to say that too

but in Apollon , it is pretty much a given because that's how the manga was written already.The mangaka appears to have musical knowledge as read her notes in the manga

Anyway K-on is a totally different style on its on. The songs are sang primarily by seiyuu, the soundtract composed by Hajime Hyakkoku and there are peeps out there who is not crazy about that style. Its like music made for anime and not a typical style recognized in the world of music.

But K-On was a commercial success. I have a Japanese musician and sound engineer friend who told me that it made the KORG organ featured in the anime sell like hotcakes and the Les Paul and Fender guitars as well.

As someone mentioned Baccano, Durarara should also be brought up in this discussion. As well as the Natsume Yuujinchou. All of which the soundtracks were composed by Makoto Yoshimori. He does some really great stuff. Probably my second favorite anime music composer after Kanno.

Mawaru Penguindrum has some really great music too.

I agree Durarara had a great soundtract too it really sets the moods of the scene very well.It caugjht my attention first when I heard the music and it got some crazy jazzy bluesy horns in it

My favorite is the Shizuo's tracts, Ikebukoro Strongest because it makes me want to yell IZAAAYAAA!!!!!! ha ha ha

Really enjoying Kids on the Slope, the "jazz battle" in episode 8 between Sentaro and Jun I thought was one of the highlights of the series so far
Hoping the soundtrack comes out for it in the near future

Kids On The Slope is an AMAZING & BEAUTIFUL series. Anyone who doesn't like this obviously has lost all proper brain function.

I finally got around to watching this show and I just love it. Saved the spring season for me in fact. The music, the animation, the story- all top notch.

in addition, Yokko Kanno also did the music for Macross Plus. music in general is the heart of the entire macross franchise. the closest in terms of theme seems to be Macross 7. most of the franchise is centered around fighter pilots but, in macross 7...it's centered around a band.
