The Music For Winter 2013′s Anime Season – Thoughts Thus Far

Introduction: Winter’s days are cold, dark, but mercifully short, very much like the list of shows that have caught my interest this season. Normally, the soundtrack aspect would give me sufficient cause to add a few more to my watch list, but for whatever reason, I can’t seem to be able to scrounge up the will to sit through subpar shows in the vain hope of uncovering some great tunes. I already have quite a stack of soundtracks to review anyway and people probably want more of my time to be dedicated to that, I’m sure. Besides, if I happen to miss a show with good music, you all will tell me, right?

On the plus side, as you can probably tell from the recent spate of posts, we’re getting back into gear, and a a preview isn’t a bad way to go. With that, here’s a list of what to anticipate from the plot front (slight importance) and, as always, the music front (more important). [Read more…]

Previewing the Music for Spring 2011′s Anime Season

Well, that was quick.

This winter, for better or for worse seemed to just fly by. It feels like yesterday that many of us dipped our toes into Madoka, Hourou Musuko, and Yumekui Merry, but many of those shows are coming to an end and many new ones take their place. Like before, we’ll be doing a preview with more of a focus on the musical side of things; people looking for plot summaries can look elsewhere since we choose our shows based on the composers than things like plot and seiyuu (OK, not really). So check out the composer rolls after the jump! [Read more…]
