The Power of Music in Anime

How does a music score affect the overall feel and quality of Anime? Looking at Anime series that place a heavy emphasis on music, such as Nodame Cantabile, Kids on the Slope, and the works of Jun Maeda (who is both an Anime writer and music composer), can we say that a greater emphasis on music contributes to the greater overall quality of the Anime? Does the ability of an Anime series or film to incorporate music make it a superior medium to manga?

  • Some of the best music I've seen in anime is definitely the scores for Miyazaki's films. – enizzari 6 years ago
