    what is anime/manga type of music?

    Post by zero on Sat Dec 05, 2009 12:24 pm

    Oftentimes I can listen to a piece of J-Music, and be like "this sounds like anime music!" Today especially, after my semi anime-watching friend pointed out that the song I was playing, the OP song to To Aru Kagaku no Railgun, sounded like "anime music", I got wondering, what constitutes sounding like anime music? What are characteristics that anime music have that distinguishes it from non-anime J-Music? Some things I can think of off the top of my head are that anime music tends to be synethetic-intensive, and a high pitched singing voice is often a dead giveaway. Also, I think seiyuu-singers sound a little different when they sing than normal singers. I can't pinpoint exactly why this is (although if its a character song or something and deliberately altered to fit the character then it's usually a dead giveaway), but generally when I listen to a song and I'm like "this sounds like a seiyuu singing it", I'm right about it.

    Im just a little confused

    There's non-anime J-Pop that fit some of these characteristics but still don't sound like anime music, though. For example, Ayumi Hamasaki's music is heavily electronic, but they don't really sound like anime songs. Ai Otsuka has a high pitched voice, but a majority of her songs don't really sound anime either.

    Any thoughts? Sometimes I wonder if everything besides the American-influenced R&B stuff that tops the Oricon charts could sound like "anime music" to a non-fan. Maybe since anime songs often end up being chart toppers, "anime music" and "Japanese music" are one in the same.

    thank you for your help though
