Lately I've been reading up on Shigatsu no Kimi Uso and I've found that it's less emotionally impacting than the anime due to the lack of sound. I've heard some people would listen to the songs while reading the scenes with performances. I've found this to be a complicated process because sometimes they would go to play, and I'd prepare the music, but then something would happen (not gonna spoil).

Are there any OSTs you listen to while reading your manga to set a mood. If so, how do you manage it because a sudden change in mood could offset the music. Any OSTs for battle shonen? Romances? All replies are appreciated.

YES ! I do that most the time, like its very relaxing that way .. And with that, sometimes i fell asleep by listening to music while reading .. I do that when insomnia comes.. Hardly sleep during night time ..

no when im about to read i literally have to stop my music so i can concentrate fully on what im about to read i think when i hear music and read its distracting in the sense that i tend to sing all to often. lol

but also its distracting because i my perhaps miss something, since i dont concentrate as much to get the deeper meaning of what it is im reading. I can see that for some people it gives them that dramatic feel but i dont really need music to get that . it happens all up top . that why no music helps me emerge and concentrate fully on the details and feeling of what the story line is trying to convey.

i do how ever when i finish that chapter or manga and take a break i will listen to a song that set the mood after i read, so if what i read was super adorable and fresh im gonna get an upbeat song or if it was a manga that made me think i will listen to something mellow that shows how that manga set my mood.

I don't, I need silence to concentrate when I'm reading.

You might like Cliff Lin.
Instrumental metal. That way you won't be distracted by the vocal stuff xD

Then you're listening to wrong type of music :P
Some classical music is said to highten concentration lvl. Like some of Mozart's stuff.

Though I can listen to any type of music and still not lose concentration.
