12 Days of Anime #8: A slightly greater appreciation of music

Earlier this year, we had the AniMusic Tourney. I am ashamed to admit that I did not really take part in it, but that initial collection of songs (nominations) was a godsend.

I am super grateful to ZeroParticle (go praise him on twitter!) for organizing the tournament and exposing me to lots of music I hadn’t heard before.

I want to start this post by making note of my incredible musical ineptitude. You could make me listen to an orchestral rendition of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 8 and I’d ask you if Kanye West was singing or playing the guitar.

That said, I did come to like a few anime songs this year and I wanted to call attention to them. I found a good number of them through the tournament but I discovered many songs through other means and well, I rediscovered quite a few as well.

Oh and I am not sure if they are the best op/ed songs this season (they probably aren’t, though they are still very good), but I felt that they did a good job in representing their respective anime.
