I think it goes back way further than the 80s. The US, or at least the people who produce US film/television, have taken an interest in the Japanese at least as far back as the 1950s, with Kurosawa. LA has always had a historically high percentage of Japanese, so it's only natural that some of Japanese culture would leak into the US.

Now that I think about it, speaking of 80s Japanese culture in US media, the sushi scene in breakfast club. When that was made most people probably had never heard of sushi, or knew it was Japanese (even after the scene). But since all the production staff was in LA, they sure as hell knew what it was.

The music just takes it over the top for me. Animation,Plot and Character Development are important but music just makes an anime a perfect symphony.
