We have a new show starting tonight on SBS PopAsia called "Anime Hour" playing non-stop anime themes from 9pm (AEST). WOO! 

How to listen

I thought I would help you get started by introduding you to my TOP 5 ANIME TRACKS OF ALL TIME!!! (Warning: Most of these are a bit ‘classic’… I tend to really hold on to songs I like)

5 – MAAYA SAKAMOTO – Platinum (OST Card Captor Sakura) Smooth, girly and catchaaayy. Card Captor Sakura actually has one of the best soundtracks ever, so go request ‘em all!

4 – TOMMY FEBRUARY 6 – Lonely in Gorgeous (OST Paradise Kiss) This is my personal catwalk song. It comes on, and my mind transforms into this runway with flashing lights. Listen to it and let me know if it happens to you, too.

3 – YUI – Again (OST Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood) This song just sounds so good. I don’t know what it is, it just sounds so good. What do you think?

2 – LINKED HORIZON – Guren no Yumiya (OST Attack on Titan) This is my fight song…take back my life song… (sorry, I got distracted). But no, really, how POWERFUL and AWESOME is this track? I run to this and pretend I’m Mikasa and I’m hunting down titans! Erm…just me?

1 – ALL THE RUROUNI KENSHIN opening & end tracks. Years later, still my favourite anime soundtrack OF ALL TIME. You’ve got Yellow Monkey – Tactics, Siam Shade – 13 Junjou no Kanjou, Bonnie Pink – It’s Gonna Rain, Makoto Kawamoto – ½ , T.M. Revolution – Heart of Sword… okay, except Mayo Suzukazen’s Namida wa Shitte Iru. Really not into that, for some reason.

Well, tell me how you go with my list and let me know what’s in your list, too! ;)
