Day 32 of Anime


Day 32 - Favorite anime OST (Original Sound Track) [NO OPs or EDs]

It’s not to say that I don’t like OSTs like the one from Natsume Yuujinchou which I also obtained in time, but the one OST I have always loved and always inspired emotion (and nostalgia, I suppose) from me has been the soundtrack to Shinrei Tantei Yakumo.

The difference is this is an anime where I really noticed the effect of the soundtrack in telling the story. It’s not that I never notice the soundtrack while watching anime, but it felt to me that in this specific anime it was particularly effective. Each of these sountracks I ended up liking a lot, whereas usually from a soundtrack I can only pick 5-6 tracks that I really like (like in the case of UN-GO).

Some of these I feel like they would do well if they were in a visual novel setting as well and would love to see someone make an interesting visual novel out of Shinrei Tantei Yakumo, alas I don’t think that will ever become a reality.

My favourite from this OST is White Wing… or Sympathy….or… ugh.

If not Yakumo, I definitely would have gone with the UN-GO soundtrack which was equally effective and defining for me. My favourite from this is Light, if I remember correctly.
