    Yes and no: I really like Yoko Kanno's offbeat work on the Cowboy Bebop series (though that, and the rest of her work, certainly had to grow on me), and there's a number of other scores which I enjoy, but it doesn't help that I don't enjoy anime in the least and never watch it.
    So I very seldom have a frame of reference.

    Anime scores are as enjoyable as action scores or whatever. There's so much terrific music out there....

    Why don't you like them Martijn? There's something for everyone, even hentai!

    I really like Yoko Kanno's work for Wolf's Rain Volume 1 and Volume 2.

    I'm not sure!

    I get confused what is and isn't anime. Maybe if someone lists a few scores, I'll chip in with a yes/no!

    Japanese call all animation films ''anime''. The word literally means animation. Japanese people would call Bambi anime. Everyone outside of Japan refers to anime as any random Japanese animation flick. It's as simple as that.

    I recently watched the OAV for Read Or Die. The regular series composer, Taku Iwasaki, did the music for it and it was good. For the first the music sounds like it written specifically for the scene and not just tracked in like how they often do it. There's a Charlie Angel-esque theme for the main character, an MV-ish action theme, a "character moment" theme that get some various strings and piano arrangements. Recommended.
  2. I recently fell in love with the opening theme to the OAV Record of Lodoss War. It appears it was written by Yoko Kanno.

    I also love the Kawai score to Ghost in the Shell, especially after seeing the film. Ambient, but very emotional and philosophical. And the main titles are purely masterpiece.
