I consonantally listen to film / game OSTs but "only" occasionally to anime ones. Yōko Kanno and Susumu Hirasawa are the MVPs of the anime scene.
I always have music running in a separate YouTube tab during reading and i listen via 5,1 headphones.

I do on occasion, despite not watching anime.
I might not have the emotional connection that comes from being invested in a series,
but I appreciate the good music nonetheless.

I still listen to some songs from more than 10 years ago lol. In fact, this is still one of my favorites.

Not Cautionary Warning? A shame that the actual anime is pretty eh, but it did originate the legendary "anime black guy" meme. First hit on google, you legend of racism you!
Macross 7 is another show only noteworthy for it´s top of the line music.

Here is a 10/10 anime OST from a show that can´t even get subs, despite being by Madhouse + Tezuka. The opening to Hidamari no Ki.

Here is our related Your favorite anime OP/ED thread btw:

I actually also still listen to Cautionary Warning and also still a favorite of mine. Although if I have to pick, Let Me Go Let You Go is a better favorite.

Ruroni Kenshin imo also had a decent selection. They're mostly alternatives, but they were also nice to listen to. Sobakasu, Tactics, The Fourth Avenue Cafe, It's Gonna Rain - I still listen to them.

I often put on anime or game ost when working.

Well, I listen ONLY Guilty Crown's OSTs, lol. The soundtrack is amazing <3

I listen to a few anime songs, but it's not even often enough to say occasionally. My favorite OST would be the one for Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. But actually I'm not even a fan of that anime. I tried watching it, but just couldn't get into it.

A bit of a question, do most anime release like full length soundtracks, or do they usually just have the opening and ending songs?

thread

» im_uni on January 14th, 2017, 4:31pm

I don't know about 'most', but maaaany of them do. There was never a case when I wanted to listen to an OST (relatively often, as I even sometimes choose anime because of its composer) and it was never released.

thread

Thanks for the info. I usually only search for the opening or ending songs that I like. I never really think about looking for the whole album for a series.

I listen to a couple once in a while but I haven't found one that I really liked since Macross Frontier. Then again, I don't watch as much anime as I used to.

Occasionally!!
Only when something catches my ear and matches my taste.

I stopped watching anime ages ago so no. I do listen to game osts though like final fantasy or skyrim.

thread

Fairly often, when I'm doing some reading or whatnot that I need some white noise for.

I don't usually tend to think of them as anime OSTs, though. More like instrumental music composed by people I like. There's a lot of JRPG/Visual Novel OSTs mixed in there too that I listen to.

To this day, my favorite anime OST remains the .hack//SIGN one. And my favorite game OST is Shikata Akiko's wonderful Hanakisou compositions.

Often
I rarely listen to English songs, even the songs in my native language. because those songs somehow lost their charm when I understood their lyrics. so I only listen to OSTs and song sung by Hatsune Miku (because I like Miku's voice)

thread

» monkry on January 20th, 2017, 10:14pm

I listened to the any music I likes, doesn't matter what the source is. There's some anime and game OST I wished people would listen to though, because they're so good, such as NieR's or Zankyou no Terror's OST, but seems like many people would back off just from knowing it's from game/anime sad
