Given that this is the 10th episode of Anime Music on the AIRS, I wanted to take a different path and chronicle the major pieces that really turned me into an anime music fan. With that comes an episode with a lot of selections that are more off the beaten path than usual, but the music (at least, in my opinion) is absolutely terrific. Given that there’s a lot more music that shapes my journey, this will be a two-part episode, so enjoy part 1, which takes you all the way up to 2006.
