    The soundtrack for Haibane Renmei was truly wonderful.

    I was really impressed with the soundtrack by Steins;Gate because I was unfamiliar with the two composers behind it. After checking, they've done very little prior to this, so here's to hoping they'll offer more of the same in the future.

    I can't really remember the soundtrack for Red Garden, if I'm honest. I just remember the characters going into song unexpectedly, but it was rather enchanting.

    I've bought the soundtrack for Shiki as I really like Yasuharu Takanashi's work, especially for Naruto Shuppuden but most recently for Log Horizon. :yes:
    Haha glad you agree, Shiki's OSTs are really haunting I find. Beautiful at the same time though.

    I love Higurashi's OSTs because they are some of the saddest and scariest I've heard. I am amazed at how scary they can make music.

    Has anyone seen Nana?
    Yes, easily one of my favourite shoujo series. The first opening is awesome.

    Yup. Highly doubt it's going to continue considering it's been on hiatus since 2010. The mangaka herself admitted she might not return to it. quite sad really

    I LOVE Haibane Renmei. It was such a beautiful anime there are literally no other words for it. It made me think a lot. More people need to watch it! I think a lot of people are put of cos the animation isn't the most beautiful thing ever.

    I found it so sad. The OSTs really got me as well. In moments like when Kuu disappeared and they found her halo I was like I can't deal with this. Then Rakka saw the little family of figurines that Kuu put together I was like, damn you OST you got me. You got meeeeeeeee.
    Oooh I've never seen that, but when I look at the animation is gives me a serial experiments lain sorta vibe.

    I do remember Red Garden though, solely because it was so explicitly westernish that it stuck in mind lol. But I agree, the soundtrack was awesome.

    I had that on my MP3 player for quite a long time (might still be on there, I can't remember). It always caught me off guard whenever it got randomly shuffled. :p:

    If we're posting videos, my favourite insert track at the moment is probably:



    *has rated Madlax's OST as his favourite for years; only found out it had a second OST last month*

    Yosh-itoshi Abe (had to put a dash otherwise his name would get *'d out) did the character designs for both anime. Which are both amazing. Obviously Lain's style is older cos it was made 4 years before Haibane Renmei.

    And I agree, I loved Red Garden. I thought the animation was beautiful and the OSTs were really original. :rolleyes::cool:

    Have you seen NieA Under 7? It's another anime based on his works, and is by far the least known/talked about. Quite a bit more light-hearted than the likes of Lain and Haibane, but still thought provoking. :yes:

    I haven't!
    Currently looking it up on MAL. :cool:

    Also the song you posted reminds me of this a bit -



    But this is slighter sadder sounding I'd say.

    And also reminds me a bit of this

    Yes... fantastic series, but it needs a sequel/conclusion. :sadnod: Unlikely to happen while the manga is on hiatus, though.
    I thought so too. Ah, that's a real shame - the ending did seem abrupt to me. Why is on hiatus? It seemed very well received.

    Do you know if the Monogatari series is worth watching?

    The manga-ka, Yazawa Ai, fell ill about five years ago. :sadnod:

    As for Monogatari... I personally wasn't a fan, but I'm definitely in the minority there.
