From a link someone posted on one of the IRC channels I browse comes what apparently is the 100 best anime songs as voted on by 2channel. While looking at the list and brief snatches of songs, I was mostly annoyed by what turned up and what was placed. How the hell could Ali Project be that high with their Rozen Maiden songs? Why the hell are Origa’s songs from GitS:SAC so low? Why aren’t songs like Jun (Cromartie High School’s OP), To the Other Side of the Door (FMA’s technical ED 3), Drastic My Soul (instead of the less awesome Reckless Fire) or any of the Pani Poni Dash OPs and EDs on there for example? I know music tastes are subjective, and that I’m sure I have an unusual bent on music at least. I can understand that recent shows might not stand out as much as “timeless classics” songwise, and many of the songs are where they are on the list mainly because of popularity, which I understand but don’t like.
So I’m wondering, are there any grumbles you have about the list? Unheralded songs? Do you even care? And yes, this is a “TheBigN wants to hear more awesome music he hasn’t heard before” sort of thing. It’s good to indulge yourself sometimes.😛
