Who here gets anime soundtracks ever? The only ones I've ever took the time to 'get' were the Rozen Maiden and Rozen Maiden Traumend OSTs. I love the classical music as well as the fight music.
NHK's soundtrack is the best shit ever.
More gaijin anime fans need to be like >>8. I actually have a lot of the soundtracks from his list. Paprika's OST also got me into collecting Hirasawa Susumu's music. Awesome shit. Still, for me it's far more about image albums and vocal collections than instrumental soundtracks — unless, of course, there's something especially awesome about the instrumentals.
I reached my 200 CD mark the other day with just over half of them being Jpop, Jrock, or anime. Plus I have a bunch of mix CDs and MP3s on my laptop. eBay, Half-Priced Books, the Internet, and a local dedicated anime store are to blame.
Necrobump to add that these days I'm mostly after OP/ED singles rather than full soundtracks. The Bakuman. OP "Blue bird" has so much audible sparkle and boyband-like qualities I tend to burst out giggling whenever I hear it.
>>32 Paprika's soundtrack is amazing, it also got me into Hirasawa Susumu and then even moreso into P-Model - it was as if I had always had a P-Model-shaped hole in my soul before then, right up my street
Non Non Biyori has a pretty good soundtrack.
Which one is your favorite ?
