For the past decades, Anime series has introduced us to not only addictive theme songs but also a beautifully composed soundtrack. Each was made specially to enhance the feeling and to make viewers feel like they’re actually in the series. But amongst these talented artists, we found a few that stand out with their rendition of the epic Anime soundtrack. For those of you who would like to enjoy their creation, we present the list of our top 5 epic Anime soundtrack composers!
Ever feel like you're actually in Aincrad the moment you hear the Swordland theme of SAO? Our first entry of epic Anime soundtrack composer, Kajiura Yuki is responsible for that. She’s also the artist behind Puella Magi Madoka Magika and Kimetsu no Yaiba. If you’re looking for a fantasy-world theme BGM with the addition of soothing background vocals, this epic Anime soundtrack composer is the perfect one!
The chills you feel when the Colossal Titan appears was created by our second entry of epic Anime soundtrack composer, Sawano Hiroyuki. He’s known for the distinct electro-rock element of his music that perfectly matches critical moments in Attack on Titan, Gundam Unicorn, and Guilty Crown. He has also collaborated with popular artists to make epic Anime soundtracks such as Lisa and Jean-Kenn Johnny of MWAM.
Ghibli music is the specialty of our third entry of epic Anime soundtrack composer, Hisaishi Joe! He composed some of Hayao Miyazaki’s beloved films’ music such as Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle, and My Neighbor Totoro. The fairytale-like feeling of the Ghibli supernatural world was so beautifully expressed that when you hear the tune of Merry-go-round-of-life or One Summer’s Day it will be stuck on your head for days!
This entry on our list of epic Anime soundtrack composers is a newcomer who managed to steal the scene with his music! Hayashi Yuki is known for making the music of Haikyuu!! and My Hero Academia series. His modern-pop style is the perfect shounen theme to get fans hyped up for monumental scenes. The moment where Izuku ran to save Katsuki or when Hinata and Kageyama synchronize for the first time wouldn’t be as iconic without his music.
Last on our list is a band who became the epic Anime soundtrack composer of the highest grossing Japanese animated film of all time, RADWIMPS! The group is mainly active as a band, but their achievements in Makoto Shinkai’s ‘Your Name’ was so big that they’re also in charge of the soundtrack for his next project, ‘Weathering with You’. Their music perfectly describes Mizuha, Taki, Hodaka, and Hina’s feelings as they find a way to be with someone they love.
