A huge pleasure to see you posting here buddy.And damn you though!After looking at all of these, I've seen a handful, not just a few, a HANDFUL of fucking composers that I'm going to decide on...Code Geass, TTGL, GITS, Eureka seveN...hell, I thought s-CRY-ed had some good music from what I can remember.Fucker. And you know I'm already bad at choosing a favorite. DAMN YOU.But you know I love you <3 :DI'll decide later, lol

I hate when this happens, you get so many good composers you love, but you can only choose one. T-Tits an conspiracy. But anyway. Love most of those animes, seen most of them too. gah it was a very hard descion but I went with K?tar? Nakagawa. Why cause of code geass. not sure what else he did. but so far I love that one.

For me it's Yoko Kanno. Those particular anime have soundtracks that could easily stand alone as a worthwhile product, something not often seen in anime.

It was a really tough choice, but I finally decided on Yoko Kano.the music in GITS was excellent. "Inner Universe" makes me want to orgasm a few times simultaneously.

Yoko Kano. The tracks on Cowboy Bebop and Wolf's rain are phenomenal. Naoki Sato isn't that bad either but nowhere as close as Kano.

Hell... a very hard choice between Joe Hisaishi and Yoko KannoI really loved the music from Code Geass, TTGL, and E7. I thought it was fantastic but I'm going to go with Joe Hisaishi as the best. Spirited Away's soundtrack was so amazing, emotional and it really moved me, I really love it. So after a loooooong debate in my head between these two composers, I pick Joe Hisaishi.
