Class 8 - What?s Your Musical Flavour? Thu, 2015-03-19 14:51

Just like ramen, music breathes life into any anime. Ok, so maybe that analogy isn?t exactly right, but you get my point. Whether it?s bubblegum pop, grunge rock, instrumental, jazz, R&B, basic pop or rock, we all LOVE our anime music in all their diverse and dynamic glory and the amazing artistes who create them. This is why we felt it was high time to share a few of our favourites with the class! It?s time to discover your musical flavour so join Anthea, Eran, Jeanne, Kash and Rice as they share and squabble over their top 5 anime Openings and Endings! They are perfect for any weather and who knows, you might discover a few new tracks to add to your collection from our list of 29!

In a musical episode, the music choice for the week is a generous Arigatou! performed by Hand Made Kazoku from Bleach.
