What anime has the best soundtrack?
This is a tough one. I actually just changed my mind typing this first paragraph. Originally, I was going to go with One Piece. Not because I think that it technically is the best soundtrack, but because there are specific tunes that signal certain events and it really hits the feels, every time. That said, before I change my mind again, I think Akira has the best anime soundtrack.
Why is that?
Well, everything about Akira is spectacular and the soundtrack is no exception. It uses all sorts of different styles of singing and instruments. I’m pretty sure there is some Mongolian throat singing in there… The use of percussion instruments is amazing.
It is an orchestral soundtrack that is up there with the Hollywood greats. There are delicate moments with soft and melodic tones. Then there are bizarre and twisted scenes with music that fits it so unbelievably well. It all just perfectly comes together to make Akira one of the all-time greats.
Akira is thirty years old and still stand up against the tests of time. Honestly, I wouldn’t be surprised if that continued. The opening scene, which really sets the tone for the whole movie, is amazing. It changes pace and focus continuously and the music keeps up, building on the images.
Anything else you’d like to say?
I know I mentioned Akira as my first anime and that was two weeks ago, so if you still haven’t seen it yet, there really is no excuse. Go and watch it. It is that good.
