Why do other anime even bother? The art of the anime ED was perfected with "Gravity."
>>
>>100212068
Plz. It's not even Yoko Kanno's best ED. Real Folk Blues, Diamond Crevasse, Tsuki no Mayu, all better.

"Plz" go and stay go.
I love Gravity, and Stray. I still love this show.

>>100212068
It's top 5 for me. Used to beat off then go to sleep to that shit.
>>
>>100212788
Who wouldn't beat off to Maaya's voice? It's sexy as fuck.
>>
Blue best girl. Though there was never really any competition...
>>
You all know Yoko Kanno is a talentless hack who steals songs, right?
>>
>>100212930
Steve Jobs and Bill Gates stole.
Calling Yoko a talentless hack means you have 1 dying brain cell left in your head.
>>
>>100212930
You know in jazz that's called "quoting" and that everyone knows who she's "stealing" from?
>>
I'd rather have plagiarism than the same tasteless bullshit every single anime OST.
>>
>>100212930
Oh jesus, not this again.

For the last time, all the stuff which is borrowed is the meaningless background music. No one cares that she ripped material for a bunch of filler OST tracks.

The stuff that she's known for, the ones that made her famous and that we all cite when we talk about the best YK tracks, are all her own.
>>
>>100212992

She didn't "steal", and she's not a plagiarist.

She's a copier. Instead of creating her own style, she copies others. It's good if you're just composing BGM, but it makes you a terrible artist.
>>
>>100213388
Inner Universe is 100% original.
Stray is 100% original.
Gravity is 100% original.
Living inside the Shell is 100% original.
You keep talking like everything she has done is not original.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musical_quotation
>Musical quotation is the practice of directly quoting another work in a new composition. The quotation may be from the same composer's work (self-referential), or from a different composer's work (appropriation).
>Quotation is also a tradition in jazz performance, especially of the bebop era.

There's no such thing as plagiarism for real musicians

This. Watch the following and point out how many of them are the "big name" Yoko songs.

WITHOUT SAYING GOODBYE TO YESTERDAY

I don't even care if I don't know the lyrics, it's the voice that's beautiful.
>>
I still love this anime to this very day. Unfortunately I'm one of the few, but I can't help myself. It's just so beautiful.
>>
>Maaya Sakamoto will never do another ballad like Gravity
>She'll keep doing shitty jpop to appease otaku even though the genre does her voice no justice
>>
>>100214107
Ever since her and Yoko had that supposed "falling out", she'll never do a song like Gravity ever again.
>>
Haters can hate all they want. They still don't know 'bout that "Moon" shit.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PU35fJNtxp8

I wanna die to this song.

...and take as many of you with me as I can.
>>
>>100214107

From what I've read, most of her new stuff isn't for anime.
>>
>>100214217
Huh? Explain further.
>>
>>100214565
I just read how this Crispin Freeman dude was hosting a panel for Maaya Sakamoto and was being a real dicksneeze, but the point is that one of the people there asked about her "recent parting with Yoko Kanno". That's all I know, sorry.
>>
>>100214263
Yeah, but it's still pretty much all Jpop, which fucking sucks because it's a gigantic waste to use an actually good voice on anything "pop".
>>
>>100214655
ah, ok. Thanks.
>>
>>100214217

What are you talking about? Even if they did have a falling out, other composers write ballads, too.
>>
>>100214674
>Yeah, but it's still pretty much all Jpop, which fucking sucks because it's a gigantic waste to use an actually good voice on anything "pop".

Oh yeah, I agree. I loathe all of her non-Kanno music.
They still collaborate every once in a while. They did a song for that new Code Geass movie, right? And in 2011, Kanno and Sakamoto collaborated for this lovely song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZxwphfF1qz8
>>
>>100214882
Is Yoko even doing anything anymore? The last thing I even remember is her doing the Aquarion EVOL soundtrack.
>>
>>100215206
>>100215206

Checked the Gabriela Robin fansite, but it hasn't been updated since January 2013.

Seems like her last work was that cheesy ballad with male singers.
>>
>>100215206
>>100215407


Wait, I checked VGMDB and apparently she arranged the Space Dandy ending theme.

Last year she composed the music for a movie and a drama.
