I do need a bit of a break from all this album reviewing and from getting my bases covered for the 2009 music post, such that the anime music article on the Japan Times, filled with plenty of material for commentary, was timely.
Anyway, here’s the article in question. Based on the article’s approach, I’m inclined to say that the author hasn’t really been immersed in anime music beyond skimming the Oricon charts and noticing some anime albums placing in the top ten. Some of the points it makes are contentious, especially in light of the “talented” claim, which I’ll dig into later on. In any case, I’ll give the article a blow by blow account.
