Anime Music

Anime OPs, EDs, OSTs, you name it.

What particular songs or composers of this "genre" have you liked?

I like
Kajiura Yuki (composer)
NGE's "Komm Susser Tod"
Higurashi's "You"

PS: I considered making this thread since I felt it had a different approach to this one

Yuki Kajiura and Yoko Kanno tie for my favorite composers. Well, actually, maybe I do like Yoko Kanno just a little bit better. Depends on my mood.

I love Akiko Shikata as well, though her songs do tend to sound pretty similar.

Naoki Satou is great for horror (I listen to mostly soundtrack music when I write, so I love him for creepy scenes).

I've only listened to the Kobato soundtracks as far as Hama Takeshi goes, but I really like them.

Motoi Sakuraba is pretty awesome too.

So far I've most enjoyed the music in Claymore and Noir although a few others have had nice songs here and there (El Cazador de la Bruja has a very nice piece called the Inca Rose).
