Currently into the Tsukihime anime OST (since I'm playing the game ).
But any of Yoko Kanno or Kajiura Yuki works are great, as is the OST of Gundam Seed (a true masterpiece), or Susumu Hirasawa's Berserk and Paranoia Agent OSTs, and also Witch Hunter Robin and Hellsing, and finally the relaxing OST of Mushishi. Those are the ones I'm usually listening to in my car
Also the awesome OST of Shadow of the Colossus but that's not an anime >.>
Cowboy Bebop was pretty sweet; I'm currently listening to Death Note OST and it's amazing especially L's theme.
hehe I agree, the first of songs in OP and ED in Pokemon (when it was first arired in Poland while I was younger) that was just awesome. I listened to english version of, i dont know if it is season 1 of Pokemon :x, but in eglish like in polsih the music was awesome. Furthermore, right now beineg no Pokemon fan :x I like that two songs from the very first epiosdes of Pokemon ^^Originally Posted by Raine_Joybringer
The original movie soundtrack to Ghost in the Shell, really all the OSTs from the GiTS series are awesome. Also the Evangelion Soundtracks, and the soundtrack from the End of Evangelion movie.
Though it isn't anime, I'd have to say anything Final Fantasy at least from 7 or 8 onwards >.> Also, .Hack//Liminality (came with the 4 game PS2 series), OP/EDs of Shuffle!, Onegai Teacher, and Onegai Twins. Trigun and Wolf's Rain are good too <3
if you're a fan of the famous hans zimmerman... which i feel everybody should be.... you should DEFINITELY get the blood+ soundtrack. hans zimmerman did the music. FLIPPIN amazin, that man hans...
um... you've probably heard the bleach ost... the first one... i really liked the first op, by orange range, and the second op by uverworld. and then the first ed, i think, by orange range again... called thank you... and then some other ed called movin. don't remember the artist.
good for you! samurai champloo ost rocks! you should definitely hook yourself up with the cowboy bebop ost too if you like it. search for music done by nujabes... you'll love it if you're into samurai champloo and cowboy bebop music.
hope that helps. (:
actually the first ending of bleach was Life by Yue (I think that was her name) and it is an awesome track too. I liked it so much I was openly offended the first time I saw an episode that did not have that ending.
Then you can not talk about anime songs without mentioning Wind and yellow moon the first and ... I don't know, 14th maybe?... ending of naruto. I also really liked Parade and Alive (also Naruto endings and i don't know of the top of my head who the artists are but if you pm me I can look it up).
Then there is also the soundtrack for Outlaw Star, a mediocre halfway decent anime from times past, but the music is amazing, this is the first anime i searched and downloaded the soundtrack for, after GitS:SAC that is...
Bebop is without a doubt the best ever. The Seatbelts, Mai Yamane and Steve Conte are fantastic
Bleach ending.. Hmm.. you mean Life is like a boat by Riefu?? I have that in my playlist. Gotta love it.. and yeah Wind ending in Naurto.Originally Posted by kiddo7
And Dr Tony tony chopper is just absolutely cute.. the song that is..
ah~ i didn't like the first ed for bleach... actually... i can't remember it. oh yes. but i didn't like it though. but! the english was good so i give it props for that... i can't stand it when singers (not only japanese but korean, chinese, etc) sing in english without knowing what they're singing/pronouncing it correctly. i mean, i understand if the pronunciation isn't perfect, but come on, you could try.... yeah i'm just bitter.
I love quite a number of them...
For nice background music :
- Blood+ OST I and II are good, since they're by Hans zimmerman, who did the soundtrack for Gladiator and other hollywood movies
- The other one is the whole series of Neon Evangelion Genesis OSTs, done by 鷺巣詩郎 (Shiro Sagisu). He also did Bleach I OST , which is good, btw..
As for Ops & Eds, I like
- Inuyasha I and II OSTS 'Best of Inuyasha' as they have songs by 浜崎あゆみ, Namie Amuro, Boa, Do as Infintiy - which is quite a good mix
- Blood + Complete Best also has OPs and EDs sung by Hyde, Mika Nakashima. The best ED here is by Angela Aki 'This Love'
Chill-Out & Listen
Another cosy corner for all of us can talk about our favourite soundtracks, opening of ending songs for any shoujo anime or drama series.
Of course, if there's any songs you like to share with us, please let us know too and where we can get them.
My current favourite is actually Endless Story by Yuna Ito from NANA the Movie...
She acted as Reira in the movie and her melodic voice just carries off this song so well. Her voice is really a contrast with Glamourous Sky by Mika Nakashima, who acted as Nana herself - a case of punk versus pop?! You can check out their songs HERE.
So, what's yours?

hmm You know what, I can;t wait to have an OST from Naruto SHippuden, it's glorious If it was realsed, I havent had right now, but if it wasn't, I will deifently must have hiehie ^^
Episode 50 just came out with a new op and ending on it...the Opening just seems to be random pictures (Nice looking random pictures) but the ED is definatly showcasing the arc that Yorozuya is scantlating currently. Heres the link, you can watch it yourself and get an idea.
I'll be putting the translations up once i go home (Hopefully.)
Maybe i should hunt around for the translation of the 1st OP & ED too.
I kind of like the 1st one by Tommy Heavenly 6, it's loud & gets-you-going kind of style.
Anyway, manage to find this...
The Lyrics (in Jap) - full version.
Let's go out! Open my mind
Let's go! Sweet dream other side
失われた日々が (Hey Baby why?)
蒼く繋がってく (I want to cry...)
I pray... "信じて"
暗い空を見上げ (Baby...for you)
進む 顔を上げて (I'm here for you)
I pray... その瞳(め)に
Ah... ah... ah... ah...
(Hey baby why?... I want to cry... Hey baby why?)
(Hey baby why?... I want to cry...)
(I'm here for you... yeah...! Believe yourself)
同じ瞬間(とき)を生きていたい with U...
I pray... "答えて"
I pray... "信じて"
