Update 7/1/15

Wow guys, I really suck. I did not mean for this blog post to come out so late. If you follow me on Instagram then you noticed that I wasn't feeling too hot on Sunday or Tuesday (both days I promised the blog would come out). Well here I am today, freshly showered and mildly okay enough to post. Before I start though, I just want to say...read until the end, I will have a special announcement.

Anime Composers: 

Hiroyuki Sawano & Kajiura Yuki

As most of you know by now, music is my favorite thing ever. I love listening to music and when I was in elementary school and high school I loved to play music. Now, I want to discuss to of my favorite anime composers of this moment. Let's get started. 

Hiroyuki Sawano 

2006 - Soul Link
2006 - Yoake Mae yori Ruriiro na: Crescent LOve
2007 - Kishin Taisen Gigantic Formula
2007 - Zombie-loan
2009 - Sengoku Basara: Samurai Kings
2010 - Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn (Also Provided Ending Song)
2010 - Sengoku Basara II
2011 - Blue Exorcist
2011 - Sengoku Basara: The Last Party
2011 - Guilty Crown
2012 - Blue Exorcist Movie
2013 - Attack on Titan
2013 - Kill la Kill
2014 - Aldnoah.Zero (Also Provided Ending Song)
2014 - The Seven Deadly Sins 
2014 - Attack on Titan Movie Part 1: Crimson Bow and Arrow (Also Provided Ending Song)
2015 - Aldnoah.Zero Part 2 (Also Provided Opening Song)
2015 - Seraph of the End (Also Provided Opening/Ending Song)
2015 - Attack on Titan Movie Part 2: Wings of Freedom (Also Provided Ending Song) 

His work is amazing and I find myself entranced in everything he creates. Although he has only been around since 2006 he creates music to get lost in. I bought the score for Attack on Titan on iTunes and feel like I am in the world of AoT every time I listen to it. 

On the other end of the spectrum is the enticing work created by renowned Kajiura Yuki. This beautiful woman has been providing music to popular anime since the late 90's. She is also known to be associated with musical acts such as FictionJunction and Kalafina that she founded with her amazing music. 

Kajiura Yuki

1997 - Eat-Man

2004 - Le Portrait de Petit Cossette
2004 - Madlax
2004 - My-HiME
2005 - My-Otome
2005 - Tsubasa Chronicle

Jure Tripper - Ending Theme

Eve no Jikan - Ending Theme Song
Kuroshitsuji II - Insert Theme Song
Sacred Seven - Opening Theme Song
Fate/Zero - Opening Theme Song

She certainly has a lot under her belt. I love listening to the Pandora Hearts soundtrack and I cannot wait to get my hands on the Aldnoah.Zero soundtracks (for both Kajiura Yuki AND Hiroyuki Sawano). Now do you see why I did these two together instead of separately? Lol, they are so closely linked it isn't even funny. Plus I absolutely LOVE Kalafina. 

So who is your favorite anime composer? Want to see a specific composer listed? Next time: Takanashi Yasuharu. 

Special Announcement

I haven't thought up the rules yet, but it will be cool. I might also be giving away something else and have two or three winners. Let me know your thoughts.
