Announcing a New Upcoming Post Series: Anime Composer Profiles

About a month ago, I had asked you all to come up with a list rank-ordering your favorite anime composers for a few reasons. First of all, I was curious as to how well people know the composers behind some of their favorite anime series and I was delighted to see that we got a wide range of musicians, including a few I’ve never heard of.
